UBC Managing Director of Faculty Relations Allison Matacheskie wrote in a statement to The Ubyssey that the university will continue to work to find solutions to these differences. On behalf of the Queen`s University Faculty Association, I am writing to express our full support for your efforts towards a fair agreement. We will send you a cheque for $1000 to help your members. This issue is currently being discussed with the administration and we will inform our members as soon as an agreement has been reached. UNBC FA proposes that sabbaticals not be affected by a strike (i.e. they would continue to receive their normal sabbatical pay, have access to research funds, have access to their office, be reimbursed for research-related expenses, etc.). .
