Text Of The Agreement Reached Between The GEO And The University

The University and the GEO will meet at least once a week beginning March 29, 2002 with a goal of reaching an agreement by April 28, 2002 on the composition of a bargaining unit.* The parties hope that substantial progress will be made by April 15, 2002 so that said progress can be communicated to the various constituencies. The final agreement would be jointly submitted to the Labor Board to certify a bargaining unit and conduct an election.
* It is understood that the final list of names of assistants to be included in the bargaining unit cannot be determined until assistantship appointments are finalized during fall semester 2002.
