Local 27 – Evergreen Home for Special Care Bargaining Update: Conciliation Scheduled

Your bargaining committee would like to advise that we have now obtained a date for conciliation. The bargaining committee will be meeting with the employer and conciliator on June 20th, 2023.

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.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your bargaining committee:
