Collective

Bargaining

  • Negotiating labor agreements


Terms and monumental cases

Terms and Monumental Cases


Issue

Issue

  • July 1935 United States Congress enacted the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA)

    • Effort to equalize bargaining power

    • Protect the rights of those who chose to organize and bargain collectively (National Labor Relations Act NLRA – Law and higher education. January 21, 2011)

  • Takes approximately 25 years for the effect of this federal act to be felt in higher education.

    • Since the 1960’s, collective bargaining has been implemented in institutions of higher education (Altbach, 2005)


Research problem

Research Problem

  • The state of higher education in the United States continues to decline when looking at world rankings.

    • The Spelling Commission Report (United States Department of Education. 2006) revealed that higher education in the United States has slipped to 12th internationally when evaluating higher education attainment.

  • Depending on what reports or studies one reads a litany of solutions to this problem are given.

    • However, most of these reports look at preparedness of the students in institutions of higher education, the costs of higher education, and the availability of accessing higher education but does the culture of the employees of the institution have any effect on student preparedness at graduation?

Justification of research

Justification of Research

  • Intervention of the federal government

    • Established legal guidelines for collective bargaining in both the private and public sector

    • Historical legal cases directly involving institutions of higher education

    • Solid background to compare effects and results of collective bargaining in a specific institution of higher education.


Justification of research1

Justification of Research

  • Arena of collective bargaining can be quite large

    • Research will focus directly on one form of collective bargaining, interest-based bargaining.

  • Research will provide the institution with longitudinal evidence of the effects of past negotiation on the social & cultural environments of the institution.


Purpose of study

PURPOSE OF STUDY

Examine the perceptions of employees and administrators directly involved with contract negotiations with regard to the use of interest-based bargaining at Carl Sandburg College to determine the perspectives on the effectiveness of the negotiating methods and the subsequent social and cultural environments of contract ratification on the institution.


Purpose of study1

PURPOSE OF STUDY

Better understand the psychological dimensions and organizational issues involved with participants of negotiations. An in-depth qualitative narrative study exploring aspects of preparedness for negotiations, practical usage of components of interest-based bargaining, and their impact on the culture of the college can provide insight to such conceptual and pragmatic understandings.

Target audience

Target Audience

  • Institutions implementing IBB will benefit from the research as the process of the negotiation procedure is structured and can be useful in all areas of operation of the institution once employees realize how to apply the principles of the process.
