The article discusses the scope, functions, and limitations of university workers' education programs. These programs probably cannot get by with working in the agitational and organizational area of labor unions because of the makeup of university governing boards and the general political climate. In addition, universities can and should operate in the area of the union's bargaining functions. This field includes such subjects as labor history, union administration, collective bargaining, labor laws and legislation, the psychology of labor-management relations, and the role of the union members as citizens.
