Our contract is a binding agreement between our Collective Bargaining Unit and the university. Its components, called planks, are researched, written, and bargained for by graduate workers, and the ratified contract provides a threshold for our interactions with the university. As we continue to develop an anti-oppressive praxis and fight to make Michigan State University a sanctuary for all who live and work here, we build on these planks and continue to organize for expanded protections and benefits for graduate workers and our communities.
Our current contract, ratified by the GEU membership, took effect May, 2019 and will last until May, 2023.
