Following an all-night bargaining session, negotiators with the University of Illinois and the union representing graduate workers on the Urbana campus have reached a tentative contract agreement.

The Graduate Employees' Organization - or GEO - announced the news on social media earlier Thursday.

Wednesday marked day three of the graduate workers strike at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Gus Wood, co-president of the Graduate Employee Organization, or GEO, says the strike is gaining momentum and numbers.
