MEMORANDUM

To: Principals, Deans, Academic Directors & Chairs
From: Vivek Goel, Vice-President and Provost

Re: PTR/Merit Award & Performance Assessment Letters

As you know, the University and UTFA have not reached an agreement on salary and benefits for faculty members and librarians for July 1, 2007. We will be working with Mr. Martin Teplitsky in his role as mediator and arbitrator over the summer.

The University will be implementing PTR awards for July 1, 2007 without the Across-the-Board increase. We ask that Chairs and Divisional Heads include the following statement in their letters to faculty members and librarians informing them of their PTR/Merit award and performance assessment. Once an agreement or arbitration award resolves the outstanding issues an Across-The-Board increase will be implemented with a retroactive component as appropriate.

Inclusion for letter:

Although the University and UTFA have not reached an agreement on salary and benefits for the academic year 2007/08, the University will be implementing the PTR awards for July 1, 2007. This letter reflects your PTR award and your 2007/08 base salary including that award. Once an agreement or an arbitration award resolves all of the salary and benefits issues, I will write to you to inform you of further adjustments to your 2007/08 base salary.

Instructions on the implementation of these increases will be circulated to your Business Officers.
