GEO to Discuss Intent to Strike


Champaign IL – The Graduate Employees Organization of the U of I could strike again. The GEO is holding a membership only meeting tonight to discuss filing intent to strike paper with the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board.


After meeting 18 times between the GEO and University Administration representative, they have not reached an agreement. They need to agree on major contract proposals with tuition waiver protection, wages, and health care.


The filing intent comes after a bargaining session that took place last week after 100 members walked away feeling as if the administration is stalling. The GEO is still committed to continuing to bargain for a fair contract.
