IMPORTANT: Bargaining Update March 3


***March 3, 2018 --  201 days since our contract expired on August 15th***

Good evening, GEO! 

Today our Bargaining Team met and set a bargaining session with the Administration for tomorrow, 3/4/18, at noon at the Illinois Fire Service Institute. While we are eager to get back to negotiations, we stand firm that everyone who does the work deserves the waiver -- without loopholes or expiration. As always, we will let you know the outcome of this bargaining session once it concludes.

In preparation for the possibility of the strike continuing on Monday, please join us at the GEO office (809 S. 5th St. Champaign, Geneva Room) from 1-6pm on Sunday, March 4 for phone banking picketers and sign-making

In Solidarity,
Graduate Employees’ Organization
