University reaches settlement with GAU
February 14, 2014
Kyle Sutton of the Daily Egyptian sat down to speak with members of Graduate Assistants United about successfully settling a grievance with the University.
A graduate assistant who filed a grievance against the SIU more than a year ago has reached a settlement.
Graduate Assistants United and the university reached a settlement stemming from a grievance filed against University Housing in November of 2012 by Kevin Ross, a graduate student from Pickneyville studying rehabilitation counseling.
The university and the GAU settled on the amount of a $650 compensation for Ross.
Under the collective bargaining agreement between the Board of Trustees and GAU, a grievance is defined as a dispute raised by an assistant against the university.
When the grievance was filed, Ross was working as an area complex director for graduate and family services of University Housing at Evergreen Terrace.
