The president requested washtenaw circuit court yesterday, to ask GEO members to return to work by issuing a temporary restraining order and a preliminary directive. 

 

“Following the announcement that GEO will continue to strike and not teach for at least five more days, I made the very difficult decision to seek help from the courts so we can resume all of our remote and in-person classes,”


Schlissel said in a video which he shared via his Twitter page “We welcome the opportunity to discuss the issues that GEO has raised. The University’s offer to continue talks remains open. What we cannot welcome is the profound disruption to the education we’ve promised our undergraduate students.”


“we don’t want anyone to feel threatened simply for wanting to go to class.”


He Continued by saying “Going to the court was our only choice after learning that the strike would continue,” 


In a statement on monday, the union assured the striking graduate students that no individual member was at risk because the University had filed for an injunction.


“We’re disappointed that President Schlissel has chosen to immediately abandon these promises in favor of trying to shut down our strike by brute force,” GEO’s statement reads. “Shame on the University of Michigan for using their immense resources to bully their graduate workers out of striking — instead of using those same resources to create a safe and just campus for all.”
