Written in a clear, direct style, this book provides educators with a comprehensive presentation of the laws and rules governing collective bargaining. Establishing from the outset that educators have a constitutionally protected right to organize for purposes of bargaining collectively, Ostrander identifies basic regulations for such activity in the education field and goes on to present in-depth analyses of specific legal issues that may arise. Topics include impasse procedures, the right of middle managers to bargain collectively, the legal status of strikes, the legal basis for public involvement in bargaining, statutory provisions for union security, the legal rights of the individual in a collective bargaining setting, legal issues in post-secondary bargaining, and the legal status of grievance arbitration.
