Answers to frequently asked questions about GEO's strike.

Key issues regarding the GEO strike.

May 31

U-M negotiators met with GEO for the thirty-seventh day of bargaining.  GEO presented no counter offer to the university’s comprehensive package proposal provided on May 12. The union did inform the university that their members had voted to reject the comprehensive package. 

The parties did reach agreements on 12 memoranda of understanding (MOU): 10 that were not discussed in previous sessions and already well established in prior GEO contracts and 2 new MOUs related to transgender health.  The university is awaiting a counter proposal from GEO on its comprehensive package and has offered to meet daily in order to reach resolution on the outstanding issues. 

GEO proposed one day in June for bargaining. The parties are still working to determine the next date for bargaining.
