With a bargaining session coming up that deals directly with the remaining issues, including economics like wages, fees, and health care, it’s more important than ever that GEO members fill out the Strike Survey, located here:http://bit.ly/Ylf4Kj
Your input is invaluable because it will help the bargaining team prioritize these very important remaining issues. Ultimately it’s your contract, so you have the say!
Once you’ve filled out the Strike Survey, join your colleagues for the General Membership Meeting on Wednesday, February 6th from 5:30 pm-7:30 pm in the Hull House Dining Hall (800 S. Halsted St.). There will be a bargaining report back from Monday’s session, a discussion of survey results, and an open discussion of what next steps you the members want to take. Food will be provided, so see you there!

Here we are: it’s the first bargaining session of the spring semester (due to the university cancelling the past two sessions) and after 7 months of bargaining with the university, we finally received an economic proposal from them only to find out they want to decrease the wages of graduate employees. Find out more from co-president Marissa Baker’s blog post
Ready to say “Enough!”? Then head on over to the GEO Bargaining Session this Monday, February 4th from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. in University Hall room 650. We’ll be discussing wages, health care, fees: all major issues! Even if you can only make it for a little while, join us at the table!
