    Judge says UM grad workers union committed unfair labor practice; union to appeal

    April 19, 2023 // The judge said the Graduate Employees’ Organization violated the no-strike clause of its current contract, which expires May 1. GEO members have been on strike since March 29. But the decision is not final. It serves as a recommendation to the full Michigan Employment Relations Commission. University spokesperson Rick Fitzgerald said the strike has left students’ exams and final grades in jeopardy. “While the university has worked diligently to ensure that the negative impact felt by students is minimized, it is in the best interest of the entire campus community, especially our undergraduate students, for GEO to stop its strike and return to the classroom,” he said.
