Daily Faculty Reporter
The Graduate Employees' Or-
ganization (GEO) will meet with
University negotiators today to
continue debating their new con-
tract.
GEO presented its economic
proposals at the last meeting Feb.
25 and is waiting for the Univer-
sity's response today.
"I think the University will try
to propose a settlement package so
we could possibly resolve the
whole issue," said GEO President
Chris Roberson.
GEO proposals include a 15
percent wage increase next year,
10 percent the following year, au-
tomatic Cost of Living Adjust-
ments, and subsidized child care.
Roberson said if GEO is unsat-
isfied with the University's eco-
nomic package, the union and the
University could go into a period
of unofficial mediation to resolve
the economic issues.

the fight first," Clowney said.
According to police reports, the
officers tried to end the fighting by
shouting instructions to the crowd
before using the mace.
The letter states that Vice Pres-
ident for Student Services Mary
Ann Swain "initiated an investiga-
tion into the incident" Jan. 23. It
said by the afternoon of the same
day she was unable to contact
anyone who had heard the "racial
slurs."

Some of the proposals agreed
upon at the Feb. 25 meeting in-
clude stipulations that all costs of
instruction materials will be paid
for by the University and that TAs
will be consulted before any grade
changes are made by a department
chair.
'Nothing is going to
unite TAs faster then
salary issues'
- John Robb
GEO bargainer
One issue that will be further
discussed is specifications on
salaried pay for TAs. Currently,
TAs are not paid for preparation
time activities - such as reading
texts or viewing films for a class.
As a result, GEO wants to be paid
for a more specific accounting of
work under the contract.
"They (the University) don't

want to admit that people aren'@
getting paid for work they are do-
ing," Roberson said. "The point of.;
work is to be paid."
Roberson cited the English
Composition department as one
example of the problem. "TAs as-
signed to grade composition papers
aren't required to read the books
which the papers are based on. Not
only is this unfair to the TAs, bu
also to their students," Roberson
said.
John Robb, a member of the
GEO bargaining team, said the ;
University's refusal to specify pay
was an attempt to settle negotia-
tions quickly.
"Nothing is going to unite TAs ,
faster then salary issues," he said.
"They want us to give up things
(like overtime pay) so we can fin-4
ish negotiations quicker."
University administrators were
unavailable to comment on the
GEO proposals.

GULF

But the flight from Saudi Ara-
bia was scrubbed because of poor
visibility there and high winds in
Baghdad, U.S. military officials
said. Weather permitting, the swap

will take place today, they. said.
So far this week, at least 40
service people have returned to
Michigan from duty in the Gulf. At
K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base near
Gwinn, 36 personnel landed on
Sunday. Two air force personnel
arrived Monday at Selfridge Air
National Guard Base near Mount
Clemens.

Bush said last week.
Developments that worry some
on Capitol Hill and elsewhere in-
clude:
A notification that the
United States intends to sell $1.6
billion in new weapons to Egypt, a
leading ally in the Gulf War. The
list includes 46 F-16 fighter
planes, 80 air-to-ground Maverick
missiles and 240 cluster bombs. It
also includes 48 guided glide
bombs of the type the United
States used to hit targets in
Baghdad;
A recent classified report to
Congress listing $33 billion in pro-
posed weapons sales this year to
American allies around the,~world,
with more than two-thirds of it des-
tined for Saudi Arabia, Egypt,
Turkey, Israel, and the United
Arab Emirates, and;
The administration's
apparent intention to reimburse
Israel and Turkey for hundreds of
millions of dollars in military costs
associated with the Gulf War, and
indications that some U.S.
weapons may be left behind when
troops withdraw from Saudi Arabia.

said. "The volunteers learn to be
flexible and resourceful."
Dean said the program has al-
ready been implemented in 12
other colleges since 1985.
Cecil Miskel, dean of the
School of Education and in charge
of the program, said he is excited
about the new prospect.
"The program will recruit
highly motivated and talented
people who have a unique perspec-
tive that will help the Detroit
school system as well as the
School of Education," Miskel said.
Miskel said the volunteers will
help the School of Education in
developing new teacher education

"The University officials said
they were investigating the inci-
dent, but they weren't," Clowney
said. "They just said that to pacify
the students."
On Feb. 22, Rackham student
Carmel Morgan asked the Ann Ar-
bor City Council to investigate the
incident as well.
The students asked MSA to
write a resolution because "it has
been a very closed issue. We just
wanted to get it out to all the stu-
dents," Clowney said.
Law School Rep. Michael War-
ren said if the group really wanted

CORPS

programs for graduate students.
The University has agreed to
grant in-state tuition for the partic-
ipants. Miskel said the Peace
Corps will also help indirectly with
funding by identifying potential
donators for scholarship funds to
cover tuition and fees.
"We are excited about the op-
portunity to implement the pro-
gram at Michigan since this was
where John F. Kennedy first an-
nounced the Peace Corps 30 years
ago," said Dale Gilles, another
University program coordinator for
the Peace Corps.
Coverdell and several Peace
Corps volunteers will also speak at
Rackham Auditorium at 7:30 to-
day, and a reception afterward will
allow students to speak with past
Peace Corps volunteers.
GROUPS
Continued from page 1
year law student Michael David
Warren, Jr. commented on the fu-
ture of his group.
"We supported the principles
and decisions that undergirded
Desert Storm. We believed it to be
essential that America, as the
leader of the free world, oppose
tyrannical aggression."
"We are especially proud and
happy that the Gulf War ended,
even before we were able to orga-
nize our activities," he said. "We
will have a final organizational
meeting on Thursday with the offi-
cers, and it is probable that we
will disband."

action, it should take its com-
plaints to Student Legal Services
to find out if it has grounds to sue
the University or the AAPD. He
said it probably wouldn't affect the-:
administration if MSA passed a@
resolution. "Whatever MSA says;
no one is going to listen to us," he
said.
