This article will examine the problems which arise when the NLRA is applied to institutions of higher education, and how the decisions by the NLRB have not been appropriately sensitive to these problems-particularly in the area of faculty organization. This article will also discuss the Supreme Court's decision in NLRB v. Yeshiva University which held that faculty members at the university were "managerial employees" and thereby excluded from coverage under the Act. This discussion will show that the Board's approach to this problem has been irrational and further demonstrates why the NLRB should never have assumed jurisdiction over institutions of higher education.
