Collective Bargaining Mediation 
Currently, the provincial government provides this service at no charge.  Why do we offer it on a fee-for-service basis and why do our clients pay us to mediate their collective bargaining disputes when they can get this service for free?  Three reasons:

1.   The provincial government has been known to keep labour and management parties waiting for up to 2 months for a meeting with the conciliation officer or mediator.  This presents a problem in cases where a lot is riding on the ability of the parties to successfully conclude bargaining sooner rather than later.  Also, as you know, sometimes the timing is just right to get the talks underway and a delay will result in a missed opportunity.   We are able to provicde service within a few days.  One of our mediators, in fact, was called up to do a mediation session at 11:00 a.m., arrived to begin the session at 2:00 p.m. and the parties had a settlement at 3:00 a.m. of the following morning! 

2.   You get to choose the mediator you want and you know you're getting someone you can count on. 

3.   Our mediators will work very hard to get you a settlement - all of them, all of the time.

We're there when you need us and we're good. No paperwork - no delays. If your collective bargaining disputes are subject to interest arbitration and you are feeling frustrated with the costs, delays and results, call us. We also do interest-based bargaining and preventive mediation
