University and AASUA sign agreement regarding extension of probationary periods

20 July 2020

As we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize the potential impact that the pandemic may have on the evaluation of performance for some staff during their probationary period. To address this, the University and AASUA have signed a letter of understanding regarding extension of probationary periods.

Trust/Research Academic Staff (TRAS) and Administrative and Professional Officers (APOs) may request a six-month extension to their probationary period if they feel evaluation of their performance will be negatively impacted by the pandemic. Staff members have until August 15, 2020 to discuss with and submit their request to their supervisor.

Refer to the letter of understanding regarding extension of probationary periods for full details.
