SACUA has issued the following statement regarding the GEO negotiations:
We are writing to ask for a speedy negotiation between the university administration and GEO. We support both fair wages and fair negotiation, including the ability to discuss the Rackham funding proposal announced on March 24, 2023, which still needs to be clarified and formalized. We are concerned with the University’s request for an injunction and its potential negative impact on the University community. We value both the well-being of all our students and the strength and vitality of the University of Michigan.
