They are divided into two bargaining units, as listed below. The third group are those represented by the University of Toronto Faculty Association (UTFA). Each employee belongs to only one category, depending upon their status at the university.

Anyone applying for positions may only apply within the category to which they currently belong, (i.e. to apply for Unit 1 positions one has to presently be a registered student at UofT).
