STRUCTURAL AND ATTITUDINAL FACTORS RELATED TO COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS IN PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS
ANN E. FEYERHERM AND PAUL M. MUCHINSKY
AbstractThis study reports the impact that several structural and attitudinal factors had on the process of collective negotiations between Iowa public school teachers and their respective school boards. Factors such as the "internal/external" status of the chief negotiator and expressed attitudes regarding the perceived benefits of collective negotiations were found to be related to the stage of bargaining at which a settlement was reached, as well as the number of hours spent in negotiation.
