More Opportunities to Vote!


***March 9, 2018 --  207 days since our contract expired on August 15th***

Dear GEO,

In order to give more members the opportunity to vote on the Tentative Agreement there will be a voting booth open at the GEO Office from 11am to 9pm today, March 9, 2018. Come to our office in the Geneva Room of the McKinley Foundation at 809 S. 5th St in Champaign to cast your ballot!

We will still hold a second GMM today at 4pm at the IMC where we will give a full presentation on the contents of the Tentative Agreement and answer your questions. Members can also cast their ballots at the GMM. 

Until all votes are counted, we are still on strike. Pickets are currently suspended, but please continue to withhold your labor until you hear from GEO about the results of the vote. Once the votes are counted, we will send out a GEO-L with the results.

This Tentative Agreement is thanks to all of your hard work. Thank you for showing up and giving your all for your friends and colleagues!

In Solidarity,

Graduate Employees’ Organization
