Local 38 – Northwood Homecare Inc (Office Employees & Schedulers) Bargaining Update: Conciliation Dates Confirmed

Dear members,

Your bargaining committee filed for conciliation on February 16th, 2022. We are happy to share that the date for conciliation has been confirmed and is scheduled for June 9th, 2022. Your bargaining committee is committed to reaching a tentative agreement that we can recommend to you.

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.

If you have any other questions about the bargaining process or next steps, please contact a member of your bargaining committee or the NSGEU by calling 902-424-4063 (toll-free 1-877-556-7438) or emailing inquiry@nsgeu.ca.

Bargaining Committee:

Jodi Newland – jnewland@nwood.ns.ca

David Watts – davidwatts@eastlink.ca

Tammy Young, Chief Negotiator – tyoung@nsgeu.ca
