Local 53 – Halifax Regional Centre for Education: Conciliation Update

Your bargaining committee met with your employer and conciliator as scheduled on Friday February 23,2024. While progress was made during that meeting all parties agreed that another day of conciliation is needed.

We are now working to schedule that additional day of conciliation and the union will update you again once a date has been confirmed.

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 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.
