Levine said he now intends to coordi-
nate with SLS and the Residence Halls
Association to organize a lease-signing
workshop in each of the University's 15
residence halls for next fall.
Despite some speculation that Levine
will be challenged by a candidate sup-
ported by MSA's Peace and Justice Com-
mission - a left-leaning wing of MSA

sial causes such as divestment from Israel

The current contract was set to expire
on Feb. 2, but GEO approved a contract
extension while negotiations continued.
Both the University and the union do not
view the expiration of the contract as a
significant barrier and will continue to
negotiate as scheduled. Graduate employ-
ees will continue to teach, receive their
salaries and benefits even while working
without a contract.

a 1-percent margin. Ann Arbor voted

Co-chair Ryan Bates expressed support
for the Students 4 Michigan slate of can-
didates, singling out Benavides, who is a
member of the Coke-Campaign Coalition
and was part of Student Voices in Action,
Still, there was some tension between
the Students 4 Michigan leadership and
Peace and Justice. Bates said he was "per-
sonally disappointed" with Mironov for
his "last-minute parliamentary moves" in
Tuesday's MSA meeting, where Mironov
passed an amendment that weakened the
language of a resolution that would have
urged the University to cut its contracts
with Coke. The version that passed only
praised the Coke-Campaign Coalition for
Matt Hollerbach, an MSA represen-
tative and former co-chair of the Peace
and Justice Commission, had measured
praise for Levine.
"I don't want to sound like it's an
endorsement, but I can't think of anyone
else currently in MSA that is more quali-
fied to run," Hollerbach said. "I think he
does his job with caution, and I think it's
due caution. The system is set up in a way
that it occasionally pits him against things
that I'm fighting for, and that to me just
means that the system is working."

workers in an attempt to break the strike.
"They are probably giving Mark
Brown hope, but it's going to take a long
time to outlast us," she said.
According to Shaulis, many local lead-
ers who are usually used as sources in
Vindicator stories are growing annoyed
with the replacement workers - includ-
ing those from the Ann Arbor News
- because their unfamiliarity with the
Youngstown community is causing them
to make mistakes.
"It's like starting over every two
weeks," Shaulis said. "These people have
no context of the area. It doesn't help a
paper's credibility to have people come in
and make mistakes."
As part of an effort to support the strik-
ing workers, community members are
pledging $100 a month to adopt a worker.
Seventeen people have pledged.
"It's cold hard cash at a time people
really need it," Shaulis said. "It definitely
Rumors of Ann Arbor News employ-
ees working as scabs have been spread
widely via e-mail in recent days,
drawing the ire of some Ann Arbor
residents who view the paper as losing
touch with its largely liberal reader-
ship. Last November, the newspaper
printed an editorial endorsing George
W. Bush for president.
GEO has been protesting changes that
the University tried to make to its health
care coverage last year. Dobbie said that
the University did not make those chang-
es because the GEO contract was not up
for renewal, and the language could not
The fair treatment of international
employees is also an issues of great con-
cern for the union because it says that
many international graduate employees are
mistreated. The strike platform calls for
reforms to be made to the English-language
test that foreign employees must take.
University spokeswoman Julie Peter-
son responded to the strike platform and
said, "I do think we have made substan-
tial progress in recent bargaining ses-
sions, especially with the inclusion .of
gender identity and gender expression in
She said that GEO's current list of issues
carries a significant cost implication. "The
University is facing the worst budget cli-
mate, and it is important to recognize and
be reasonable about what we can pay for."
Peterson said that the University has
serious concerns about any form of seri-
ous job action occurring because it would
disrupt teaching and learning activities.
"We don't think it's the best method for
reaching an agreement, in addition, it
is illegal for public employees to go on
strike in the state of Michigan," she said.
Michigan Act 336 of 1947 prohibits pub-
lic employees from going on strike.

efforts should be made to bring two sides
together, not to cause disputes between
the two sides, and I think the University
should support the peace effort in the
Middle East instead of trying to favor
one side or the other."
Shotan also questioned SG's purpose
behind the initiative: "Is it for the ben-
efit of the Palestinian people, their goal
for an independent state, for a stable and
peaceful life? Or if their true intent is
the elimination of Israel?"
But divestment supporter and SAFE
President Carmel Salhi said no peace
process will be complete as long as the
"You can't have one superpower on
one side of the bargaining table. And
you can't have another side with 60-
percent poverty rates, you can't call
that a peace negotiation. The occu-
pation needs to end before progress
Salhi said SAFE will present a new
resolution to MSA during the semes-
ter which will focus on divesting from
companies directly involved with the
occupation. Salhi said this includes
companies, such as Lockheed Martin,
that manufacture F-16 fighter aircraft,
which have bombed Palestinian civil-
ians in the past.
The resolution comes after the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin at Platteville's
Faculty Senate voted on Jan. 25 to rec-
ommend the University withdraw its
financial investments in companies that
supply the Israeli military with arms.
UW is the first American university to
have its faculty vote to divest from Israel
and has already submitted the resolution
to its board of regents.

Township voted the proposal down 292
If the proposal had passed, most of
the $314 million would have been used
to cover additional costs incurred by
expanding facilities and mental health
services. The millage would have cost
taxpayers 75 cents for every $1,000 paid
in property taxes.
