Annotation: THE BASIC QUESTION AT ISSUE IN THIS ARTICLE IS WHAT PART, IF ANY, THE POLICE EXECUTIVE SHOULD PLAY IN THE FORMALIZED LABOR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MANAGEMENT AND LABOR.
Abstract: IT IS SUGGESTED THAT BECAUSE OF THE CONSTANT INTERRELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NEGOTIATION AND ADMINISTRATION OF CONTRACTS, THE DEPARTMENT HEAD SHOULD BE PRIVY TO THE NEGOTIATIONS SO THAT HE WILL BE COGNIZANT OF HOW THE CONTRACT EVOLVED INTO ITS FINALIZED FORM. THE MUNICIPAL BARGAINING TEAM SHOULD DRAW UPON THE POLICE EXECUTIVE'S KNOWLEDGE OF WORKING CONDITIONS AND PROCEDURES AS THEY RELATE TO ORGANIZATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS IN SUCH A WAY THAT MANAGEMENT WILL NOT UNWITTINGLY (OR BECAUSE OF BARGAINING PRESSURE) RELINQUISH PREROGATIVES WHICH UNDULY HAMSTRING POLICE OPERATIONS. THE SPECIFIC ROLE OF THE POLICE ADMINISTRATOR ON THE MANAGEMENT BARGAINING TEAM SHOULD BE THAT OF ADVISOR OR CONSULTANT RATHER THAN OF NEGOTIATOR, AND THE MAIN FOCUS OF THESE EFFORTS SHOULD BE IN NON-FINANCIAL AREAS, I.E. MANAGEMENT RIGHTS, WORK PRACTICES, ETC. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT)...ELW
