Local 470 A, B, C, D, & W – NS Liquor Corporation Union Filing for Conciliation

Dear Local 470 (A, B, C, D, & W) members

Following seven days of negotiations, your bargaining committee has reached an impasse with your employer and has filed for conciliation.

The NSGEU has written to the Department of Labour seeking the assistance of a conciliation officer who will help the parties attempt to conclude a collective agreement. NSGEU will advise the membership as soon as we have dates for conciliation.

What is Conciliation? Conciliation is a requirement under the Nova Scotia Trade Union Act that takes place when regular negotiations fail to reach an agreement. Either party may apply to the Minister of Labour and Advanced Education requesting the services of a Conciliation Officer. The Conciliation Officer does not have the power to impose a settlement on either party. Instead, their role is to mediate between the parties and help them reach an agreement.

We are committed to reaching a tentative agreement that your bargaining committee can recommend to you.

If you have any questions about the process or the steps to come, please contact a member of your bargaining committee or the NSGEU by calling 902-424-4063 (toll-free 1-877-556-7438) or emailing

Bargaining committee:

Brian Horne

Rose Nolan,

Edith Thompson

Jim Ross

Stephen Yachoff

Chief Negotiator, Nicole McKim

    Can someone please add me to the email update list? I have not been getting any updates, and would like to. I’ve been with NSLC 470b for the last 16 years or so…
