Michael Baker; Yosh Halberstam; Kory Kroft; Alexandre Mas; Derek Messacar – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2024
We study the effects of the unionization of faculty at Canadian universities from 1970-2022 using an event-study design. Using administrative data which covers the full universe of faculty salaries, we find strong evidence that unionization leads to both average salary gains and compression of the distribution of salaries. Our estimates indicate…

Apple, Michael W. – Educational Policy, 2023
In an earlier essay in the Reviewing Policy section of this journal, I examined many of the major arguments for social justice teacher unionism.

Simpson, Aimee B.; Salter, Leon A.; Roy, Rituparna; Oldfield, Luke D.; Simpson, Apriel D. Jolliffe – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2023

Marianno, Bradley D.; Hemphill, Annie A. – Journal of Educational Administration, 2023
Purpose: The COVID-19 pandemic prompted changes to the terms and conditions of teachers' employment (e.g. working conditions), leading school districts to renegotiate collective bargaining agreements with teachers' unions.

Although charter schools are frequently afforded flexibility from many state laws that govern traditional public schools, a growing number of charter school teachers have now unionized and introduced collective bargaining to the charter sector. Using data from a detailed content analysis of teacher CBAs from California, we compare the…

Purpose: The unanticipated changes in state legislation in Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee, and Wisconsin in 2011-12 significantly restricted or entirely prohibited the collective bargaining rights of teachers.

Price, Eric W.; Lee, Matthew H. – Journal of School Choice, 2023
Private school leaders consider the potential benefits of private school choice program participation against costs associated with program regulations.

Lyon, Melissa Arnold – Educational Researcher, 2023
In the "Janus v. AFCSME" (2018) decision, the U.S. Supreme Court mandated that all public sector workers, including teachers, operate in a Right to Work (RTW) framework. In the years since, teachers' unions have not experienced the mass exodus that some predicted, but should we expect them to? Using an original, historical data set…

Higher Education staff in the United Kingdom (UK) work long hours to complete their duties. In a 2021 survey, staff reported a weekly average of 51 hours: a fact well understood to undermine health and educational quality. Yet, UK law sets a maximum working week of 48 hours, and failure to uphold this maximum is a criminal offence for employers.…
