Across-the-board (ATB) increase for faculty and librarians


The University of Toronto (U of T) and the University of Toronto Faculty Association (UTFA) recently negotiated a new agreement, which came into effect on July 1, 2017.

Under this agreement, librarians and faculty members who were employed with the University prior to (but not including) July 1, 2017 are entitled to a 1% across-the-board (ATB) increase and a flat dollar amount of $1,150.

Details of this agreement are outlined in this memo (PDAD&C #2), published on July 21.
