Collective Bargaining and Staff Salaries in American Colleges and Universities.
Klaff, Daniel B.; Ehrenberg, Ronald G.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v57 n1 p92-104 Oct 2003
Data on employees in 168 colleges and universities were analyzed using collective bargaining coverage as an exogenous variable. Union-covered staff enjoyed a 9-11% salary premium. The union/nonunion differential was larger in two-year than four-year institutions, with no public-private differences. Where faculty were union covered, staff had an additional 2-3% salary gain.
