Abstract

This article examines action research and case study methods used by an academic in studying universities. The aim of this project was to investigate how award restructuring was implemented in two universities in Western Australia, Edith Cowan University and Murdoch University. The process, as described in this article, began with negotiations at the federal level between unions and the employers' association which lasted from August 1989 to July 1991. Negotiations then continued at the institutional level on those items that had not been decided at the federal level.
