Whereupon, the President declared the following Resolution duly adopted BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE MALVERN COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT: Whereas, the Malvern Community School Board of Education has for several years voluntarily engaged in informal, locally structured negotiations with the employees of the Malvern Community School District; and, Whereas, said Board feels that its working relationship with its employees has been very good, and the negotiation process is now working without a collective bargaining law: and Whereas, collective bargaining is, by its very nature, an adversary relationship in which the two parties at the bargaining table give and take (i.e. bargain) until an agreement or an impasse is reached; and, Whereas, an adversary relationship may be conducive to the process of forming contracts between unions and employers in the private sector, the Malvern School Board is of the opinion that an adversary relationship will tend to destroy the teacher- school board team effort necessary in the educational process. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE MALVERN COMMUNITY SCHOOL BOARD OF EDUCATION that the Board go on record as being opposed to Iowa Senate File 531 of any form of mandated collective bargaining law.
