The University of Toronto Staff Association (UTSA) was formed in March 1970 by 200 staff members who were concerned about possible changes to be made in the governance of the University. The findings of the provincial Commission on University Governance (CUG), released in October 1969, had proposed that administrative staff have only assessor status - that is, they would not be able to vote - on the University's Governing Council. As a result of the UTSA's efforts, however, staff gained two elected (voting) seats on the Council. This was a major achievement, since the administrative staff had never before - as a group - had any direct say in how the University was administered.
In 1998, members of the Staff Association voted to unionize, joining the United Steel Workers (USW) as Local 1998.
