This book describes the many experiences of a university faculty union leader. Interactions with faculty members and administrators are examined in a variety of contexts ranging from discussions about such mundane topics as parking on campus, to such meaningful topics as the nature of the union/administration relationship. Individual chapters will address important occurrences in the life of a faculty union leader, including the process of negotiating a new contract and the on-going process of representing a diverse membership with disparate goals and differing levels of devotion to the notion of collectivism. Each chapter features a "lessons learned" section which attempts to offer guidance for those who might choose to become a union activist themselves, or who might choose to offer advice to those who might consider it. While the book centers upon higher education, the concepts advanced might be equally applicable to a variety of organizations in which the eternal struggle between management and labor in a function of the workplace.
