Teamsters pledge support
for pending GEO strike

By JIM TOBINc
The Michigan Brotherhood ofi
Teamsters will announce its en-c
dorsement of the Graduate Em-c
ployes' Organization (GEO) to-
day, and intends to honor thej
GEO picket lines should a strike
occur next week.t
The move is likely to strength-t
en the union's position. In hon-{
oring the picket-lines, the Team-t
siters would put a strangle-hold
on the delivery of many impor-
tant supplies to the University.
WHILE MOST departments
could withstand a walkout ofr
TAs (teaching assistants) for at1
least several days, a stoppage
or slowdown of trucking serv-
ices would be severly felt al-
most immediately.

Friedman's autobiography of
Janis Joplin, "Buried Alive,"
Duke Ellington's "Music Is My

"Orpheus in the New World."
Judges were composers Ger-

cent Persichetti, who is also on1
the Julliard School faculty, and1
Dr. Hugo Weisgall, also a pro-
fessor at Queens College.

could be solved with a minimum

GEO REJECTED the total

mass meeting last Wedaesday,
but decided to postpne the de-

The GEO Executive Connmit-

GORDON CLAIMS Teamster
support in the walkout of Uni-
versity of Wisconsin graduate
employes was instrumental in
the success of that strike, as
well as the Black Action Move-
ment strike here at Michigan in
1970.
Gordon is emphatic in his
prediction of a successful strike
should one take place, and de-
clared that support for the
union will gain momentum once
a walkout is underway.
"We'll get a lot of non"GEO
people before the strike is over,"
he said. "People are crazy if
they think we're weak."
