Appointment of a Mediator

On April 03, 2015 the Union ended negotiations with the District of Kitimat.  The District extended another opportunity for the Union to accept the February 26, 2015 Final Offer by April 12, 2015.  The Union declined that opportunity.

This morning the Union applied to the Labour Relations Board for the services of a Mediator.  The District has agreed to participate in mediation.

The Mediator appointed today asked the parties to set aside May 01 – 04, 2015 as potential dates for initial meetings.
