WE HAVE A CONTRACT!
March 9, 2018
Dear GEO Members,
We have a contract! All of the ballots have been tallied and 98% of GEO members voted to approve the contract. This means the strike is over and that we can all return to work.
Once the new contract has been properly formatted we will send out the full document and post it on the GEO website.
As part of the new contract, the bargaining team created a plan for how to make up hours lost due to striking. Please contact your immediate supervisor to create a plan for making up lost hours. If your work was scabbed, you may not be able to make up lost hours. Make up hours must be completed before March 30, 2018. Please contact the GEO if you have any questions or concerns!
Congratulations on a successful strike, everyone! Thank you for all of your hard work.
