New Contract for Ryerson

Academic staff at Ryerson University ratified a three-year agreement in November that gives a 3 per cent a year raise as well as additional adjustments, making the value of the salary increase closer to 4.3 per cent.

The new agreement, reached after a “straightforward process of negotiation,” according to a Ryerson Faculty Association spokesperson, also gives a number of other improvements to benefits and includes new language on appointments and workload, and the establishment of a joint committee to review the hiring, promotion and tenure review processes at Ryerson, as well as related issues such as the appointment of limited-term faculty members, and the notion of a teaching stream.

The old contract expired June 30, 2008.
