Notes On The Same Side, Margaret E. Winters Jan 2019

Notes On The Same Side, Margaret E. Winters

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

Administration-side academic contract administrators have a complex job. It includes, in addition to carrying out negotiations and the implementation of contracts, the sometimes fraught task of serving as the liaison between the union and the university administration. A further set of roles for contract administrators involve their relationships with other members of the university administration, chairs, deans, provosts, presidents, and board members. These relationships will be examined first in light of each of these positions, taken in turn, vis-à-vis collective bargaining and then through a discussion of how the various aspects of the role of the contract administrator (negotiations, implementation ...


Managing Internal Tensions In Contract Negotiations: A Perspective From The Academic Union’S Side, John Allison, Jonathan Blitz Jan 2019

Managing Internal Tensions In Contract Negotiations: A Perspective From The Academic Union’S Side, John Allison, Jonathan Blitz

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

Academic collective bargaining, like all collective bargaining, presupposes conflicts between goals of the administration and the academic union. The represented parties on both sides, as well as the general public, typically perceive conflicts in collective bargaining in that way. However, both the administration’s and union’s bargaining teams must substantially resolve internal conflicts among the teams‘ own represented parties before the teams can hope to achieve an acceptable collective-bargaining agreement (i.e., a binding contract). After briefly addressing the very real strengths of academic unions in collective bargaining, we will at greater length explain the origin, nature, and usually ...


Bargaining For Adjuncts: An Assessment Of Adjunct Union Growth In The Saint Louis Region, Jameson Ramirez Jan 2019

Bargaining For Adjuncts: An Assessment Of Adjunct Union Growth In The Saint Louis Region, Jameson Ramirez

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

Minimum-wage labor is no longer confined to sectors once associated with low-skill occupations. In college classrooms across the United States, we are witness to the rise of a “gig-economy” among faculty positions where highly skilled work is being completed by part-time workers known commonly as adjuncts. Despite performing highly-skilled work, adjuncts are compensated at the levels of low-skilled workers. Lack of access to benefits, capricious contract agreements, and a general sense of feeling dispensable are common themes to the adjunct experience. The aim of this paper is to address the concerns of adjuncts and suggest some workable solutions to their ...


Salary Compression Among University Faculty: A Review And Case Study Of Remediation And Prevention In A Collective Bargaining Environment, Brent M. Graves, Dale Kapla Jan 2019

Salary Compression Among University Faculty: A Review And Case Study Of Remediation And Prevention In A Collective Bargaining Environment, Brent M. Graves, Dale Kapla

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

Salary compression has been an issue in higher education for almost four decades, during which a diverse literature on the topic has accumulated. Perhaps because of the absence of a compilation and review of this literature, administrations and collective bargaining agents commonly develop their own methods for identifying and rectifying salary compression on each campus. Most responses are short-term and do not prevent the problem from recurring. We review the literature concerning salary compression in higher education, then summarize our approach to correcting salary structure and preventing future compression.


A Higher Authority For Collective Bargaining: 2018, John Lavin Jan 2019

A Higher Authority For Collective Bargaining: 2018, John Lavin

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. articulated a high moral ground in his 1961 address to the National AFL-CIO. Dr. King’s speech identified the common sense shared by the Civil Rights and Labor movements. In particular, he praised unions’ leadership for advocating the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Furthermore, he envisioned the ethical principles bringing Labor and Civil Rights together to realize a high moral ground for promulgating workers’ equity, equality and respectful dialogue across divisions of class, race and national origin. I contrast Dr. King’s ethical statement and system of values regarding the NLRA to a series of ...


University Adjudications Of Sexual Assaults: A Lesson To Be Learned From Collective Bargaining Agreements, James Ottavio Castagnera Jan 2019

University Adjudications Of Sexual Assaults: A Lesson To Be Learned From Collective Bargaining Agreements, James Ottavio Castagnera

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

At one time, Title IX of the federal Higher Education Act was read only as requiring equal opportunity for female athletes in universities’ varsity sports programs. In 2011 the U.S. Department of Education announced a radically expanded reading of the law to include sexual misconduct. This has resulted in a proliferation of litigation against the universities. Since 2011, more than 150 lawsuits have been filed against colleges and universities involving claims of due-process violations during the course of Title IX investigations and proceedings related to sexual assault allegations. In the two decades preceding that year, only 15 such lawsuits ...

Mindspace And Development Of Organizational Culture In Aviation Safety Management, Wilson Gilliam Jr Jan 2019

Mindspace And Development Of Organizational Culture In Aviation Safety Management, Wilson Gilliam Jr

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Abstract

The organization’s role in establishing a culture fertile for safety development, risk management and mitigation is paramount. Barriers to the effectiveness of aviation safety systems may emerge when human biases interfere with the basic processes of safety management systems. Biases come in many forms and can serve as unconscious discriminatory behaviors against a person’s race, gender, sexual orientation, profession, skill level or other characteristic. Biases can also result from instinctive reactions and habitual patterns serving to protect one’s status, sense of belonging, desire to be viewed as normal and other characteristics. Minimizing biases within an organization ...

Impacts Of Globalization: Educational Reforms Shifts The Public Into A Recurrent Devalued Socioeconomic Era For Minorities, Jacqulyn Washington Dec 2018

Impacts Of Globalization: Educational Reforms Shifts The Public Into A Recurrent Devalued Socioeconomic Era For Minorities, Jacqulyn Washington

Master's Theses

This article delves into the breakdown of the impact globalization have on the success of minorities in urban centers. While expanding on the many factors that contribute to the success of minorities, it informs the reader how education, being a huge indicator of success, has been underserved to the poor and minorities. Lacking many resources, this blockage has been further strained through the local government, multinational corporations, educational reforms, and Translocal politics.

Australian University Accounting Academics: The Lived Experience, Warrick R. Long Dec 2018

Australian University Accounting Academics: The Lived Experience, Warrick R. Long

Theses PhD

The Australian University Accounting Academic (AUAA) is located in an environment which is undergoing constant change and impacts AUAAs in a variety of ways. These create pressure points that AUAAs experience and which they value, are challenged by, or affects their outlook. AUAAs are frequently not fully informed about these changes, and may not fully understand them and, as a consequence of not having the power to hold back these changes, AUAAs have little option other than to adapt. These changes challenge the traditional perception of a university accounting academic, which can cause role conflict for those AUAAs who hold ...
