Solidarity Dues

All graduate students and many other employees at the University of Michigan benefit from the strong contract GEO has negotiated over the past several decades. You can still contribute solidarity dues in the semesters you are not employed as a GSI or GSSA, ensuring that GEO continues to fight for a more equitable campus community.

Solidarity dues will run monthly for three months (i.e., one term) and you may renew each term. Suggested amounts are equivalent to your regular GSI/GSSA fraction dues minus the affiliation dues we pay to our parent union in the terms when you are teaching.

To make a recurring donation for longer than three months, click “Donate with Paypal” below#.

GEO alumni and community allies can support the union’s work by making a one-time or recurring donation. We’re working hard to keep membership up after the transition to a Right to Work contract, but we still need to make up for the revenue we lost when we lost the ability to charge service fees. Your donation will go a long way towards helping GEO fight for a stronger contract and a more equitable campus community.

Simply click the check box on our PayPal# form to make a recurring monthly donation*. And thank you!


# If you don’t already have one, creating a Paypal account should take you about two minutes.
* Note that donations are not tax-deductible.
