University of Minnesota Graduate Assistants,

On April 5, 2012, United Auto Workers/GSWU filed a Charge of Unfair Election Practices against the University of Minnesota. The union claims that the University's activities prior to the March election affected the election outcome, where graduate assistants voted to remain in a non-union status.

As a result of this filing, the Bureau of Mediation Services has stayed the election results pending an investigation of and ruling on the charges. The Bureau has also reinstated the Maintenance of Status Quo Order. This means that the University cannot make changes to terms and conditions of employment, including pay increases, until the Maintenance of Status Quo order is lifted.

We will continue to communicate with you and update our online FAQ as we have more information and a timeline for a ruling on these charges. If you have questions or concerns at any time during the process, please email ohr@umn.edu.
