University offers ‘last, best and final’ contract to GEO

The offer makes concessions on a variety of issues, many of which were brought up in GEO’s original bargaining platform. The offer includes offering birthing parent graduate students up to 12 weeks of paid leave, lower out-of-pocket maximums on mental health care and physical therapy copays, expanded gender-affirming benefits and the creation of a $20,000 per year International Graduate Workers Assistance Fund.

In the proposed contract, the University has also offered an 8% pay increase for graduate student employees at the Ann Arbor campus for the remainder of 2023, a 6% pay increase in 2024 and a 6% pay increase in 2025.
