Research grant application deadlines (internal and external) may fall during periods of strike action. Members are expected to refrain from preparing grant applications, as from all other scholarly work; moreover, there is no guarantee that the administration will accept applications from faculty who are on strike. Members should therefore be particularly attentive to early submission of grant applications if at all possible.
With regard to internal deadlines, Unit 1, OPSEU 677 will attempt to negotiate an extension to such deadlines as part of the strike protocol.
With regard to external deadlines for which applications are channeled through the NOSM University Research office, Unit 1, OPSEU 677 will attempt to negotiate extension of deadlines and make arrangements for members to meet deadlines where possible as part of the strike protocol. However, the Administration is powerless to alter fixed external deadlines.
