Willard College Supports the Rights of Faculty and Staff to Organize and Announces its new Labor Guidelines

 Italian Prime Minister Benito Mussolini

“Willard College is an organism having ends, life, and means of action superior to those of individuals, singly or in groups, of which it is composed. It is a moral, political, and economic unity, realized wholly in Willard College.”

Article 1:

“Work, in all its intellectual, technical, and manual forms, is a social obligation. To this end, and only to this end, it is safeguarded by the College. The totality of production is unitary from the collegiate point of view; its objectives are unitary and comprise the well-being of the producers and the development of collegiate strength.”

Article 2:

“There is freedom of professional or union organization. But only the union legally recognized by, and subject to, the control of Willard College has the right to legally represent the entire category of employers or employees by which it is constituted […]; or to stipulate collective labor contracts binding on all those belonging to the category; or to impose on them dues, or to exercise on their behalf delegate functions of public interest.”

Article 3:

“In the collective labor contract is found the concrete expression of the solidarity of the various makers of the educational product, by means of the conciliation of the opposing interests of the employers and the workers, and their subordination to the superior interests of educational production.”

Article 4:

“Legally recognized professional associations insure the legal equality between employers and workers, maintain the discipline of educational production and work, and promotes its perfection. Willard College constitutes the unitary organizations of production and integrally represent its interests […]. Willard College is recognized legally as the organ  of Willard College […].”

Article 5:

“The corporative college considers private initiative, in the field of educational production, as the most efficient and useful instrument of the College.” [1]

Article 6:

“The duty of employment is under control of the collegiate organs. Employers have the obligation to hire workers who are official members of the appropriate trades, and have the power to choose from the rolls of membership, giving precedence to the members of the College employee organization  according to their seniority of membership.”
