I am writing to provide clarification to PDAD&C #58.
The University and the Faculty Association are committed to providing faculty with additional time to prepare and submit their activity reports. We are also committed to ensuring a fair and robust process.
It has become clear that, in a number of Faculties, a two-month extension may be difficult to operationalize. Consequently, I am clarifying the original memo to ask Faculties to extend their internal deadlines to provide individual faculty members and librarians with at least one month and up to two months additional time to submit their materials as can best be accommodated within the Faculty’s specific context.
I am asking Deans to provide clear communications to their faculty members concerning internal deadlines, as quickly as possible. The timetable outlined in Deadlines and Key Activities should be adjusted accordingly.
There will be no change in the period being reviewed. We do not yet have an agreement with UTFA on compensation for faculty and librarians for July 2020. We will issue a further memo concerning compensation and the performance evaluation process as soon as possible. Any increases will be retroactive to July 1, 2020.
