Local 267 – Nova Scotia Community College Conciliation Dates Scheduled

Dear member,

Your Bargaining Committee filed for conciliation after reaching an impasse in negotiations on the ninth day of bargaining. Conciliation dates have been scheduled for July 7 and 8, 2021.

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.

The best way to stay up-to-date on bargaining is through email and the best email address is a personal one. If you do not have a personal email address on file with the Union, please contact us at inquiry@nsgeu.ca or toll-free at 1-877-556-7438 as soon as possible.

Also, please take a moment to speak with your co-workers to ensure they are receiving these emails and ask them to contact us if they are not. Please talk to one another so we ensure nobody is being missed.

Your support and solidarity is appreciated as we make our way through this bargaining process. Please watch for further updates.

If you have any questions/concerns, please contact a member of the Bargaining Committee:
