RAs Need a Union! 

Until recently, Illinois law prevented Research Assistants from unionizing. This means that RAs at UIC aren’t guaranteed any GEO contract benefits. We want to change that! 

We're organizing RAs with a petition strategy. If enough RAs sign the petition to unionize, the decision will go to a vote. If the majority of voters say "yes", RAs will be unionized and contract bargaining will begin. 

Want to help unionize your coworkers? Reach out to organizing@uicgeo.org!

Why should RAs unionize?

Are you a RA this semester? Please fill out this google form to schedule a time to sign the petition. 

Every signature is one step closer to guaranteed benefits for RAs!
