MERC hearing wili

clarify GSA
The Graduate Employes
Organization (GEO) decided Tuesday
night to use information gathered for an
impending Michigan Employment
Relations Commission (MERC)
he wring to organize a possible strike.
The MERC hearing, scheduled May
12, would determine whether Graduate
Student Assistants (GSAs) should be
considered students or employes. The
outcome could determine whether
GSAs have contract bargaining rights.
GEO PRESIDENT Mike Clark said a
motion for extraordinary discovery
filed by GEO attorney Mark Cousens
would give the group access to Univer-
sity information about GSAs. That
move could be blocked by MERC Judge
Shlomo Sperka.
"We don't want to use it unless we ab-
solutely have to," Clark said. He added
he would rather get the necessary in-
formation from other sources, such as
questionnaires, which would be sent out
to all University GSAs within the next
two weeks.
Clark also emphasized a strike,
which would be most feasible in the fall,
may never materialize.
"ORGANIZING FOR a strike and
having to strike are two different
things. It (the information) is not being
used for a strike. It's being used to iden-


tify bargaining problems," he said.
Though GEO stewards had already
decided a strike was not feasible for
this spring, GSA Mike Canjar insisted it
is still a possibility.
"I think we have to continue working
hard for a strike this semester," he
HOWEVER, several members sup-
ported the stewards' recommen-
dations, which postpone any strike ac-
"We're not going to b able to strike
this semester. This is the reality," said
Greg Scott.
Also released during the meeting was
a three-step strategy for victory at the
Sperka hearing.
THE FIRST STEP, which began two
weeks ago, was to get basic information
from all University GSAs. The data
would be compiled sometime next
Phase two of the program, slated to
begin over spring break, will include
distribution of detailed questionnaires
to be completed by GSAs. If no response
is received from a specific GSA, he or
she would be personally intbrviewed.
The third part would involve
analyzing the results of steps one and
two and using the data to gather wit-
"We're going to win at Sperka - no
doubt about that," Clark said.

Indians fight to fish

historian testified in federal court
yesterday there is archeological
evidence to suggest that Michigan In-
dians engaged in commercial fishing
1,000 years before the signing of the
Treaty of 1836.

testified for the third day as the federal
government's expert witness in the
complex case involving Indian fishing
rights under federal treaties.
SHE WAS cross-examined at length
by assistant state attorney general
Gregg Taylor, who said he was trying to
show that there was no evidence In-
dians were involved in extensive com-
mercial fishing in the-area covered by
the Treaty of 1836.
The issue is crucial in the federal
government's effort to prove that the
state of Michigan has no right to
regulate Indian fishing practices. State
attorneys, however, have contended the
federal government filed the suit to
take over regulation of Great Lakes
