Mediation tentatively set for the EC group at the end of JanuaryJanuary 10, 2017
CAPE was in contact with the mediator appointed by the Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board, Tom Clairmont, in order to find a date for mediation. Mediation will take place from January 24 to 26.
At the end of December, the EC collective bargaining team unanimously opted to declare an impasse after seeing that the employer’s offer was insufficient. Mediation is an optional step available to the parties before proceeding to binding conciliation, where a neutral third party will render a decision on outstanding issues.
