What is Conciliation?
Conciliation is a process under the Nova Scotia Trade Union Act that takes place when regular negotiations fail to bring 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.
What can happen at Conciliation?
Conciliation may result in several outcomes.
The Union, Employer and Conciliation Officer may decide to schedule an additional date for Conciliation. Most likely, the Union and Employer will either reach a tentative agreement, or, if they do not, the Conciliator determines that an agreement will not be reached and will file a report with the Minister of Labour & Advanced Education.
If a tentative agreement is reached, we will arrange information sessions where members can pose questions and vote on the tentative agreement. If an impasse is declared, we will arrange information sessions where members can vote on the Employers’ final offer.
If you have any questions, please contact a member of your Bargaining Committee, or the NSGEU Labour Resource Centre at 424-4063 (toll free 1-877-556- 7438), or e-mail us at email@example.com
