Contingency plans are plans that an organization would develop to have ready for a “what if” situation. In the current context, the university has been working through plans, should a labour disruption occur. The primary goal of a contingency plan would be to consider how operations would be affected by a specific work stoppage and look at how to manage for the duration of the disruption. There is a long list of considerations, including: access to buildings, access to services on campus (like daycare etc), health and safety, supplies and operations, and parking.
