Authority of four-year state-supported higher education institutions to engage in collective bargaining with faculty representatives 1. The faculty at four-year state-supported higher education institutions do not have a right under current law to engage in collective bargaining with their employers. 2.  At their discretion, the governing bodies of four-year state-supported higher education institutions may enter into bargaining with representatives of the faculty concerning wages, hours, and working conditions, but such bargaining does not establish the terms of employment for nonrepresented faculty members.

SCOPE OF STATUTORY EXEMPTIONS

An "educational institution" as defined in RCW 28B.05.030(1) which provides educational services through workshops and seminars is not exempt from the Educational Services Registration Act solely on the basis that none of those workshops or seminars are of more than three calendar days in duration; nor is such an institution exempt because of the fact that, although it solicits from more than one business concern, it does not solicit the general public.

AGLO 1980 No. 6 >  January 22, 1980
OFFICES AND OFFICERS - STATE - COUNCIL FOR POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION - HIGHER EDUCATION
REGISTRATION OF SECTARIAN INSTITUTIONS The Council for Postsecondary Education, in the exercise of its authority to suspend or modify the requirements of the Educational Services Registration Act of 1979 on the basis of hardship pursuant to RCW 28B.05.130, may not exempt an "educational institution" from otherwise required registration solely because of its sectarian religious ownership, management or curricula.
