This inaugural edition of Collective Bargaining in the Academy (CBA) begins a new and long overdue platform for research and comprehensive discourse about labor relations in American higher education. The National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions is pleased to have assisted with the birth of this journal, a project envisaged seven years ago when we began to re-stabilize the National Center. The CBA’s voices will be many, including those of academic researchers, university administrators, and union leaders. In short, the CBA seeks a true ecumenicalism of research and opinion as well as vigorous debate within its digital covers.
