The State News: GEU might strike if MSU fails to meet contract negotiations "Graduate Employees Union members said a potential contract presented by MSU officials is less than satisfactory - and they are ready to strike if the university doesn't work toward a compromise soon. ... Missing from the university's suggested contract is a wage increase, a change in health benefits and parking rights, GEU members said. Under the proposal, wages would stay constant during the next three years, which is actually a decrease when cost of living and inflation is taken into account, said GEU President Deborah Wilson."
