  • We wanted to provide you with information should the GEO strike occur on Feb. 26 as is currently planned. First and foremost, we want you to know that class will go on as scheduled. Our objective is to fulfill our obligation to you as students. Should they choose to strike, the GEO has the right to picket peacefully. They do not have the right to block your access to your classes. Should this occur, you may call campus police at 333-0050 for assistance. You have the right to make a choice about whether or not you wish to cross the picket line. Since we will be ensuring that classes will be conducted as usual, any absence from class will result in the same consequence as an unexcused absence. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Nicholas Kirchner ( or any other MCB Instructional Program staff at 217-244-6239. We continue to be hopeful for a quick resolution.
