Abstract or Summary
  • The general purpose of this study was to investigate the question: Is unionization disruptive of intra-institutional relationships on community college campuses ? The introduction of faculty unions into the college community is often perceived, even by proponents, as a process which engenders hostility and disruption. Social conflict theory is the framework within which this study examines this question of unions and their alleged disruption of institutional relationships. The Purdue Teacher Opinionaire (PTO) is the data gathering instrument used to derive and organize the empirical aspects of the problem. The data collected with the PTO were computed using a two-way analysis of variance, F statistic, to test the following hypotheses: 1. There is no significant difference in morale between union and non-union faculty. 2. There is no significant difference in morale between campuses. 3. There is no significant interaction effect between campuses and membership. The calculations of the two-way analysis of variance test showed no significant differences or interaction effect for overall PTO morale score, or for five of the PTO factors. However, the five following factors were computed to have significant differences or interaction effects: "Rapport with Administrators, " "Satisfaction with Teaching, " "Rapport among Teachers, " "Teacher Salary, " and "School Facilities and Services." The conclusions of this study are that faculty unions have become interest groups within the college organization. The unequal distribution of power and authority gives rise to faculty unions. Conflict between faculty unions and college administrators is normal, and is beneficial to the resolution of differences. Finally, collegial relationships between administrators and faculty are difficult because collegiality is a relationship that exists between group members that share ideas, goals and values.
