AN EMPIRICAL EXAMINATION OF DETERMINANTS OF FACULTY ATTITUDE TOWARD COLLECTIVE BARGAINING
SYED M. ALI AND AHMAD R. KARIM
AbstractThis study examines the determinants of faculty attitude toward collective bargaining. The data were obtained from questionnaires administered to faculty members of a mid-size non-Ph.D.-granting public university in Indiana in 1991. Four major sets of issues: compensation, personnel, governance, and academic were tested as factors in explaining faculty attitude toward unionization. The study confirms that faculty perceptions of unions are most favorable in relation to compensation and personnel issues. Governance issues are somewhat important, but academic issues do not merit much attention.
