TENTATIVE SETTLEMENT WITH USW

_______________________________________________________________________________________

I am pleased to inform you that the University of Toronto has reached a tentative agreement with the United Steelworkers, Local 1998, which represents the majority of administrative staff at the university. The agreement remains subject to approval by the Business Board and ratification by the membership of USW. We believe we have reached a fair and responsible agreement that will allow the University of Toronto to continue its mission of ranking among the world’s leading public universities.  I thank members of the bargaining team on both sides for their patience and perseverance.  I also thank the many staff who worked to prepare contingency plans over the weekend.
