GEO a ttacks 'Uproposals
Following weeks of Graduate Employe Organization (GEO)
demand clarification sessions, the stage is finally set for hard-
core contract bargaining. Armed with the long-awaited Univer-
sity administration counterproposals, the warring bargaining
teams yesterday made their first attempt to hammer out the
major differences that have surfaced on many key issues.,
"The prediction (by GEO) was that they wouldn't give us
ay sore than they did last year," said Dan Tsang, a GEO bar-
Calder, 'and that has borne true. In fact, they've given us less." f . .
THE PROSPECTS of early settlement now appear dubious
as the two sides are clearly far apart on affirmative action, non-
discrimination and economic clauses. GEO Bargainers pointed to
these areas as profoundly important.
While several GEO members carried signs outside the Michi-
gan Union protesting the University's position, inside, the meet-
ing commenced with GEO reaction to the counterproposals.
GEO negotiator Bob Thurston began the round addressing
the crucial issue of non-interference. GEO pressed, in its pro-
posal, for removal of a provision in the present contract which
Prohibits the Union from striking while a contract is still in ef-
el. The Unio is eeking to protect its leverage with the Uni-
versity, who they say is "keeping their hands tied."
