Summary

A third of all American teaching employees in the field of education are covered by some form of collective bargaining, a situation in many respects parallel to that found among workers in the private industrial sector. Teacher contracts are distinguished by less reliance on seniority, fewer employer penalties, and fewer fringe benefits, primarily because teacher bargaining is still in its infancy. Teacher bargaining moves beyond industrial collective bargaining to the extent that teachers regard themselves as professionals, bargaining not only on conditions of work but on matters of educational policy, including curriculum determination, textbook selection, teaching hours, and special educational programs. The New York City more effective schools plan is an illustration of teacher bargaining gains for both schools and children. The teachers' union proposed using city bonus funds to establish specified conditions (smaller classes, teacher "free" time, and saturation remedial and psychological services). In three years of operation the plan has achieved remarkable results. Teachers' unions have a unIQue role in providing a new dynamism in education, offering solutions without prior commitment to vested interests or to established, outmoded, or inadequate programs. This address was presented at the pacific northwest assembly co-sponsored by the University of Oregon and the American assembly of Columbia university (University of Oregon, eugene, July 20-23, 1967) and appears in "challenges to collective bargaining," a report of that assembly.
