Please join us to learn more about how the recently-negotiated COVID LOU between UTFA and the Administration affects you, including:

  • Your right not to be required to teach hybrid or dual-delivery courses;
  • How the special PTR process works;
  • Workload relief provisions;
  • Your right to choose not to use Student Course Evaluations in some circumstances;
  • Which of your expenses qualify under the special COVID Expense Reimbursement Fund (the “CERF”); and,
  • Detailed accommodation guidelines, including whom to contact, for those facing medical circumstances, childcare responsibilities, or eldercare responsibilities.

UTFA’s members of the U of T Central Health and Safety Committee will also provide updates on, answer your questions about, and assess the sufficiency of the University Administration’s fall reopening plans. Learn more about:

  • The University’s new approach to vaccines;
  • The just-updated mask policy and the ongoing challenge of compliance;
  • Why some units are being permitted to opt to teach online and others are not;
  • Classroom occupancy rates that greatly exceed provincial Step 3 limits;
  • Why it is critical that we measure and verify ventilation rates; and,
  • How we can work together to advocate for transparent, specific, measurable, and accountable steps to protect the U of T community.
