GEO holds work-in in Haven Hall during Graduate Labor Visibility Week

On Monday, the Graduate Employees’ Organization staged a “work-in” in Haven Hall to protest their latest contract bargaining session with the University’s Human Resources department. The event kicked off the week of Graduate Labor Visibility to show the U-M community how much labor the graduate students put into their research and teaching commitments.
