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 percent discount on this title.
