Of the Olympia Branch of the IWW
The IWW South Sound General Education Union, or GEU for short, is a section of The Industrial Workers of the World, Education and Research Workers Industrial Union 620 (iww.org). The GEU was founded in the spring of 2018 by students and workers at The Evergreen State College (TESC) to organize for democratic control of the college and to bargain for better wages, benefits and working conditions for faculty and staff—while ultimately working for the abolition of the wage system. All workers in education, whether a student, faculty, staff (that can’t hire/fire people), or even within industries auxiliary to education such as workers in tutoring companies and school bus drivers are welcomed to be part of the GEU.
Here is the demand letter for our current campaign at the Evergreen State College. The grievances we are dealing with, and what we are demanding is listed in there.
We meet every Thursday 4:30-6:30 pm at the basement of the Evergreen State College library, in room 0406.
If you have any questions, or would like to get in contact with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
