American Federation of Teachers - Collective Bargaining Files

 Collection — Box: 1
Identifier: UR 019A

Scope and Contents

Collection deals with the attempt by the University of Toledo faculty to be represented by a collective bargaining agent in 1974. In that year, the faculty were asked to vote as to whether they wanted to be represented by the American Federation of Teachers, the American Association of University Professors, or have no bargaining agent. In a run-off election of May 1974, they voted for no collective bargaining agent.

This series includes newsletters and flyers of the AFT, the AAUP, and the Committee of Concerned Faculty (those opposed to the collective bargaining). Also included are scattered administrative files of the UT-AFT, and some materials dating into the 1980s.
