Illinois State University and SEIU Local 73 (the union that represents approximately 400 ISU graduate teaching assistants or GTAs) met under the guidance of a federal mediator on Tuesday, September 28. Illinois State delivered its last, best, and final offer to SEIU. This proposal reflects significant movement by the University and is competitive, sustainable, and fiscally responsible. If accepted by union membership, it will result in significant increases for all current GTAs. Learn more about the University’s current offer.

The union has indicated their members will be voting from October 4 until October 10 on whether to accept the offer.
