Description
This book is available in digital version (PDF) only.
 
Since it was first published more than 30 years ago, this book provides practical insights into school labor relations in the context of Illinois law. This Third Edition updates the book and provides a pair of new enhancements: an addition to the appendix by labor expert George M. Kohut on the need to "Avoid These Pitfalls in Your Teacher Union Contract;" and an alphabetical subject index that makes the book a helpful source for finding information pertaining to school labor relations.
 
The newest edition continues to examine local practices among Illinois school districts at the same time that it explains requirements of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act. The book also addresses the pros and cons of alternative bargaining processes; explains the demands of mid-term and impact bargaining; discusses what it means to win or lose at the bargaining table; tells what to expect when teachers strike; and explains the political nature of public sector bargaining and the key distinctions between labor relations and human relations.
  
Other key concepts covered by the book: what the law requires of educational employers; the roles of various players involved in bargaining, including the administrator, school board, and community; prohibited actions of both employers and unions (unfair labor practices); the crucial distinction between labor relations and human relations; the political nature of public sector bargaining and how school officials can successfully deal with it; the pro' and cons of alternative bargaining processes (collaborative approaches); concepts like mid-term bargaining and impact bargaining that have emerged over the years from state labor board decisions; how to prepare for negotiations; what it means to win or lose at the bargaining table; and what to expect when teachers strike. Published by IASB, 2009.
 
The author was a labor relations consultant who assisted local districts in their collective bargaining efforts. A former teacher, Booth also worked as a field services director for IASB and later as executive director of the North American Association of Educational Negotiators.
