The findings indicated Florida's bargaining system was late in Kerchner and Mitchell's (1988) era of good faith bargaining, while the state FEA leadership held a third generation unionism concept. Five categories of bargaining relationships were identified (adversarial, patronizing, cooperative, conciliatory and collaborative) and the role impact bargaining may have played in complicating these relationships was discussed. Kerchner and Mitchell's model was judged to have great heuristic value in describing this system, but the researcher recommended that Kerchner and Mitchell's unionism concept be refined to more clearly distinguish between individual and aggregated group beliefs. Beliefs and practices at the state level as well as personal and bargaining relationships at the local level were determined to have important effects on the products and outcomes of bargaining in this system.
