Abstract or Summary
  • Purpose of the Study The purpose of the study was to determine if differences existed in commitment to teacher collective bargaining associations among vocational teachers. The objectives were: (1) to determine the degree of commitment among secondary vocational teachers to the teachers' collective bargaining association; and (2) to determine the significant differences in degree of commitment among vocational teachers by: age, sex, program area, teaching experience, and a priori union experience. The Procedure A survey instrument was developed and was administered to a random sample of 700 vocational secondary teachers currently teaching in Washington State. The results of the survey were statistically analyzed by the Hoyt-Stunkard Reliability Test, the F-statistic, and the Least Significant Differences Test. An .05 level of significance was used. Selected Findings Washington State vocational secondary teachers responding (428 individuals) were approximately 40 percent participating teachers' association members; however, all respondents remained predominately proassociation in their attitudes and beliefs. The Years of Teaching Experience variable produced the most significant different responses from the total and indicated the highest degree of loyalty, willingness to work, and commitment to the goals of the association. Gender, age, program area, and previous union experience also revealed significant differences. Implications If the findings of this study are coupled with the elements of change in secondary education evident in 1984, and the muted but powerful cost of education theme, a definite prediction can be increased conflict between teachers' associations and administrators over the allocation of resources.
