The Graduate Employees Organization is the labor union that represents more than 1400 Teaching Assistants and Graduate Assistants at UIC. Through GEO, graduate employees at UIC negotiate directly with the UIC administration about tuition waivers, pay, workload limits, health benefits, paid time off, and much more. Run by an all-volunteer Steering Commitee, GEO is your voice at UIC.
The GEO's current contract is due to expire in August 2012. That means it's time to go back to the table with the university administration to negotiate a new contract. It's your union so it needs your help to settle the contract! There are a number of way that you can get involved, including helping to research items for our new contract, assisting with communications for the campaign, organizing your department for meetings and rallies, and whatever else you might be interested in or skilled at!
