Local 64 – Colchester Residential Services Society – Union Filing for Conciliation
Your bargaining committee and employer reached an impasse in bargaining on Tuesday, May 7th.
The union will be filing for conciliation today, Wednesday, May 8th.
While we have reached agreement on many articles, we still have some key issues that have not been addressed, such as improvements in pay provisions, holidays, vacation, sick leave, pension, retirement allowance and wages.
The employer has proposed a reduction in pay for probationary and term employees. There are also other concessions that affect employees in regards to adverse weather conditions that the employer has refused to take off the table.
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. We are committed to reaching a tentative agreement that your Bargaining Committee can recommend to you.
If you have any questions, please contact a member of your bargaining committee, or the NSGEU at 424-4063 (toll free 1-877-556-7438), or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
