The Power Of A Presumption: California As A Laboratory For Unauthorized Immigrant Workers’ Rights, Kati L. Griffith 2017 Cornell University

The Power Of A Presumption: California As A Laboratory For Unauthorized Immigrant Workers’ Rights, Kati L. Griffith

Kati Griffith

In recent years, California has served as the primary laboratory for policy experimentation related to unauthorized immigrant workers’ rights. No other state, to date, has advanced comparable policy initiatives that preserve state-provided workers’ rights regardless of immigration status. Through close examination of two open Supremacy Clause questions under California’s Agricultural Labor Relations Act, the article illustrates that states can, as a constitutional matter, and should, as a policy matter, serve as laboratories for unauthorized immigrant worker rights. Exploring the outer boundaries of state action in this area is particularly compelling given the significant labor force participation of unauthorized immigrants ...

Labor Mobility And Hypercompetition: Another Challenge To Sustained Competitive Advantages?, Jeffrey E. Stambaugh, Yongjing Zhang, Timothy DeGroot 2017 Midwestern State University

Labor Mobility And Hypercompetition: Another Challenge To Sustained Competitive Advantages?, Jeffrey E. Stambaugh, Yongjing Zhang, Timothy Degroot

Timothy DeGroot

Researchers have suggested globalization, technological advances, and the rise of entrepreneurship have ushered in a new era of hypercompetition where competitive advantages are hard to attain and sustain. In this paper we propose another source of hypercompetition—a sudden increase in labor mobility within an industry—by drawing on the resource-based view of what leads to a sustainable competitive advantage. Using data from the National Football League, which had a substantial change in the player mobility in 1993, we use the two-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test to stratify teams according to their demonstrated level of competitive (dis)advantage based on their on-field ...


Who Cares? The Role Of Job Involvement In Psychological Contract Violation, Jason S. Stoner, Vickie C. Gallagher 2017 Ohio University

Who Cares? The Role Of Job Involvement In Psychological Contract Violation, Jason S. Stoner, Vickie C. Gallagher

Vickie Gallagher

This study examined survey data from full-time employees employed in a variety of occupations. We empirically examined how psychological involvement with one’s job affects reactions to psychological contract violation. Data for control variables (i.e., age, gender, organizational tenure), the independent variable (i.e., psychological contract violation), and the moderator (i.e., job involvement) were taken at Time 1; and dependent variables (i.e., depressed mood at work, turnover intention) were taken at Time 2. Results illustrated that job involvement was an important construct in understanding individuals’ negative reactions to psychological contract violations. Implications and limitations are discussed, and ...


Organizing Faculty Unions In A Right-To-Work Environment, Thomas Auxter 2017 University of Florida

Organizing Faculty Unions In A Right-To-Work Environment, Thomas Auxter

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

Right-to-work states are generally considered to be hostile environments for public employees who try to organize and secure union representation in order to maintain rights to fair treatment and just compensation through collective bargaining over an extended period of time.However, in one right-to-work state, Florida, we find examples of unions that have managed to survive and develop over decades. To understand the significance of this phenomenon, we need to ask several questions. What conditions make this possible? What kinds of unions are favored by these conditions? What goals can unions realistically expect to set? What would it take for ...

What Factors Affect The Time It Takes To Negotiate Faculty Collective Bargaining Agreements?, Daniel J. Julius, Nicholas DiGiovanni Jr. 2017 New Jersey City University

What Factors Affect The Time It Takes To Negotiate Faculty Collective Bargaining Agreements?, Daniel J. Julius, Nicholas Digiovanni Jr.

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

Two straight-forward but complex questions are addressed: how much time does it take to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement covering faculty in post-secondary institutions and what factors influence in the length of time involved? Are there any responses which will make sense? Can we offer any guidance? Permit first a few anecdotal stories and then a discussion about the internal and external factors that inform the answer to these questions and why the best answer may well be, “it depends.”

The Impact Of Collective Bargaining And Local Appropriations On Faculty Salaries And Benefits At U.S. Community Colleges, Barry R. Mayhall, Stephen G. Katsinas, Nathaniel J. Bray 2017 Universitiy of Alabama

The Impact Of Collective Bargaining And Local Appropriations On Faculty Salaries And Benefits At U.S. Community Colleges, Barry R. Mayhall, Stephen G. Katsinas, Nathaniel J. Bray

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

This study examines the impact of collective bargaining and local appropriations on salaries and fringe benefits of full-time faculty at U.S. community colleges. A more nuanced view is offered, by drawing appropriate institutional peer-group comparisons of rural, suburban, and urban community colleges to more accurately and precisely show just how much of a difference the presence or lack of collective bargaining, local appropriations, and the combined impact of both, actually make. Further, given the technical nature of the few comprehensive studies of fringe benefits for community college faculty, we integrate the findings of King and Maldanado.


Monetary Compensation Of Full-Time Faculty At American Public Regional Universities: The Impact Of Geography And The Existence Of Collective Bargaining, Stephen G. Katsinas, Johnson A. Ogun, Nathaniel J. Bray 2017 University of Alabama

Monetary Compensation Of Full-Time Faculty At American Public Regional Universities: The Impact Of Geography And The Existence Of Collective Bargaining, Stephen G. Katsinas, Johnson A. Ogun, Nathaniel J. Bray

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

This paper examines monetary compensation of 127,222 full-time faculty employed by the 390 regional universities in the United States who are members of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. Compensation data published by the U.S. Department of Education and organizations concerned with faculty, including the American Association of University Professors and others, typically lump all four-year public university faculty together, ignoring well-known differences in teaching workloads at different types of public four-year universities (four instead of two courses taught each term, etc.). Further, many compensation studies do not examine fringe benefits, which are 30 percent of ...


The Matriculation Of The Micro-Unit On The College Campus, Barnett L. Horowitz 2017 National Labor Relations Board

The Matriculation Of The Micro-Unit On The College Campus, Barnett L. Horowitz

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

To the extent the world of higher education was following the National Labor Relations Board there was probably limited focus on the Board’s Specialty Healthcare case allowing for the so-called “micro-unit”. Board decisions as to the employee status of tenure track faculty or football players or graduate teaching or research assistants were likely to be of greater interest. Yet the recent holding in Columbia University that students providing instructional services were also employees subject to the Act’s coverage put the micro-unit in play on the college campus. Almost immediately after this decision petitions were filed at Yale seeking ...


The Winds Of Changes Shift: An Analysis Of Recent Growth In Bargaining Units And Representation Efforts In Higher Education, William A. Herbert 2017 Hunter College, City University of New York

The Winds Of Changes Shift: An Analysis Of Recent Growth In Bargaining Units And Representation Efforts In Higher Education, William A. Herbert

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

This article analyzes data accumulated during the first three quarters of 2016 regarding completed and pending questions of representation involving faculty and student employees in higher education. It is part of a larger and continuing National Center research project that tracks faculty and graduate student employee unionization growth and representation efforts at private and public institutions of higher learning since January 1, 2013.

The data presented in this article demonstrates that the rate of newly certified units at private colleges and universities since January 1, 2016 far outpaces new units in the public sector. There has been a 25.9 ...

Disability Rights And Labor: Is This Conflict Really Necessary?, Samuel R. Bagenstos 2016 University of Michigan Law School

Disability Rights And Labor: Is This Conflict Really Necessary?, Samuel R. Bagenstos

Indiana Law Journal

In this Essay, I hope to do two things: First, I try to put the current labor-disability controversy into that broader context. Second, and perhaps more important, I take a position on how disability rights advocates should approach both the current contro-versy and labor-disability tensions more broadly. As to the narrow dispute over wage-and-hour protections for personal-assistance workers, I argue both that those workers have a compelling normative claim to full FLSA protection—a claim that disability rights advocates should recognize—and that supporting the claim of those workers is pragmatically in the best interests of the disability rights movement ...
