Managing Colleges and Universities: Issues for Leadership

By Allan M. Hoffman; Randal W. Summers | Go to book overview

absence of legislation and policies, contested issues, such as the scope of bargaining, may be difficult to resolve ( Harrison 1993). "There is not enough evidence yet to determine if the nature and quality of the labor management relationship is any different under a policy voluntarily enacted or under a comprehensive collective bargaining statute" ( Harrison 1993, 206).


REFLECTIONS

Although collective bargaining in higher education does not seem in jeopardy, it does not appear to be growing in a formalized way. The notion of voluntary bargaining is very interesting because it suggests a value to bargaining that can be duplicated without the legal parameters applied by laws or policy. The lesson to be learned from mediation is that resolution to problems and difficult issues can be found when properly facilitated. Whether the bargaining parties can themselves fill the role of facilitator, as Chandler ( 1993) suggests, remains a question. The objectivity required for mediation and facilitation seems unlikely when a bargaining representative is following a stated agenda. However, the suggestion that working together is the best way to find common ground and resolution is encouraging. During an era of rhetoric regarding shared decision making and empowerment, any discussion of collective negotiations should reflect on the power structure of organizations and the historical basis for negotiating in organizations.
