Program Representatives are students who volunteer to stay informed about union issues and actions, provide feedback on students needs and preferences, and act as an extension of communications for the GEO Organizing Committee.
The union relies on a well-informed bargaining unit who will come out to actions, lend their voices, and make final decisions on upcoming contract changes, advocacy campaigns, and strategy.
The time commitment is minimal with a monthly meeting. Otherwise, representatives can choose to be involved at various levels depending on their own time. Other opportunities include coordinating within programs to develop or create student-run organizations and assisting with graduate student and faculty outreach.
If you are interested in becoming a representative for your program, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org — we’ll get back to you soon after and let you know about the other reps in your program and how you can help.
