Academic Collective Bargaining

Collective representation has long been at the heart of academic governance. As an outgrowth of that tradition and in response to the profound changes in the academic labor market, many academic employees have turned to collective bargaining to enhance shared governance and to advocate for improvements in working conditions. Contributors to this volume aim to educate readers about the historical and practical contexts of collective bargaining. The essays collected here explore the perspectives, successes, failures, and approaches of those who have collectively bargained so that readers can assess the pros and cons of unionization. Academic Collective Bargaining can be purchased from the Modern Language Association.  AAUP members can write to communications@aaup.org to receive a code for a 20% discount on this title.


The AAUP's bimonthly magazine explores developments in higher education from the perspective of faculty members. Recent feature articles have examined work and family issues, affirmative action, contingent faculty appointments, intellectual property, and other timely topics.

Other Association reports are published in the Bulletin of the American Association of University Professors, which is published as the July-August issue of Academe.
