Who We Are & Where We've Been
are a small group of labour relations professionals operating out of Toronto, Ontario,
Canada. All of us are former Ontario Ministry of Labour Grievance Mediators.
Ontario's highly successful grievance mediation program was discontinued
in 1996. At that time, the last thing any of us ever thought we'd be doing,
was running a business. But here we are. We believe that we are very different
from the many thousands of labour consultants out there today. For some
insight into why this is, check out our philosophy,
the broad range of services
that we provide and our fees.
of us has, aside from our mediation experience, years of prior experience
as labour and management representatives in a wide cross-section of business
and labour organizations. Collectively, we possess a depth of knowledge
of workplace dispute resolution and an understanding of workplace issues
that you will not find in any other organization. We have negotiated hundreds
of collective agreements, resolved thousands of grievances, participated
in proceedings before countless Boards and Commissions, implemented legislation
and trained others to do the same. We have helped people understand their
collective agreements, lived with the aftermath of strikes, resolved thousands
of grievances and helped people make sense of complex and confusing laws

All that we would ask is that you try not to label us as "union guys" or
"management guys". Peacemakers come from every background and range of
experience - it's not where you've been, it's what you learned from being
there that counts.
