PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS' UNIONS AND MANAGEMENT RIGHTS IN PENNSYLVANIA
MICHAEL D. YATES
AbstractThe author examines the extent to which Pennsylvania's Public school teachers have, through collective bargaining, achieved some managerial control over the state's public schools. An analysis of a sample of contracts from various state school districts shows a considerable erosion of management's control of the schools, but recent fiscal problems and a surplus of teachers may make the teachers' victories short-lived or at least difficult to extend. Contracts negotiated since the main research was completed indicate increasing management resistance to further union encroachments.
