About GEO


The Graduate Employees Organization is the labor union that represents more than 1,400 Teaching Assistants and Graduate Assistants at UIC. The GEO is a democratic union run by and for its members. We are affiliated with the Illinois Federation of Teachers (IFT), the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), and the AFL-CIO.

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 Committee, the GEO is your voice at UIC.

There are a number of way that you can get involved: become a steward, research items for our next contract, submit a blog, attend GEO events, or whatever else you might be interested in or skilled at! Want to know more? Email us at geo@uic-geo.net to get involved!

Any member wishing to see a copy of the most recent financial report of the local can email the treasurer at treasurer@uic-geo.net. Our books are always open!
