WeTOMORROW: GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING (GMM)
Wednesday, September 13, 6:30-8:30pm, GEO Office (Geneva Room at 809 S 5th Street, Champaign) 
We have been bargaining a new contract with the Administration since March. We successfully signed two Tentative Agreements (TAs) with the Administration, but we still have proposals on the table. Members, WE NEED YOUR INPUT AND SUPPORT to strategize on winning these proposals! As you may have read in our last bargaining summary, we requested to bring in a mediator. The Administration accepted this request, and we are now in the process of selecting the mediator. At this GMM, we will give a bargaining update and discuss what it means to move into mediation: why it was necessary, and how it changes the bargaining process. The GMM will also feature a GEO budget update and committee presentations. 
Please come to this General Membership Meeting so that we can make decision together on Wednesday, September 13, 6:30-8:30pm, at the GEO Office (Geneva Room at 809 S 5th Street, Champaign). If you have questions about bargaining or GEO’s contract proposal, attending this meeting is the best way to address them. 
Food and childcare will be provided.

As many of you know, GEO has been bargaining for a new contract all summer, ever since March. We have succeeded in expanding our Non Discrimination article, but are still fighting to win visa/immigration leave for international students as well as more flexible parental leave and a childcare subsidy for grad employee parents. WE NEED YOUR INPUT AND SUPPORT to strategize on winning these proposals! Please come to our first General Membership Meeting (GMM) this semester and let us know about your ideas, questions, and concerns on Tuesday, August 29, 6:30 - 8:30 pm at the GEO Office (809 S. 5h St. Champaign, Geneva Room). This meeting will specifically be for bargaining-related updates and to get membership input on how to proceed and strategize with our visa/immigration leave and parental leave proposals. A GMM with more general updates and information will take place in September.
FOOD AND CHILDCARE WILL BE PROVIDED

ultimately empty threats against grad workers on visas when they try to organize. They can’t both condemn the hateful, xenophobic rhetoric and actions of our president while simultaneously exploiting the atmosphere of fear he’s created for their own gain.
