 Get to Know the Grievance Process

The GEO Grievance Committee is planning an informational and training session to introduce members to the grievance process. We have spent the last year fighting for a fair contract, and the grievance process is one of the main ways we ensure that our contract is enforced. The grievance committee is tasked with investigating problems, advising members, and seeking informal and formal resolutions to contract violations.

All members are welcome. Come learn more about the process and how you can be involved. The date is TBD (likely the week following UIC’s Spring Break). For more information, please contact Grievance Committee Chair Marissa Baker (grievance@uic-geo.net) or our staff (staff@uic-geo.net).
