This document analyzes legislation in 23 states enabling collective bargaining in higher education. Highlights indicate: (1) Twenty of the 23 laws were either passed or amended within the last 3 years. (2) Only five laws made special effort to identify college faculty explicitly as being covered and needing some special concern. (3) Only three state laws expand the definition of bargaining unit beyond "appropriate unit" giving some consideration to the differences between professional and nonprofessional employees. (4) Six states have no provision for run-off elections in their laws, while only one state (Delaware) in effect prohibits run-off elections by requiring a one year waiting period before a second election when the original election does not result in one choice receiving a majority of votes. (5) All states provide for exclusive representation by the elected agent. (MJM)
