The conciliation officer who has been working with both parties over the past few weeks has now informed both parties that he is bringing the conciliation process to an end. He will also inform the minister of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour in writing of his decision. Within 15 days of receiving the conciliator’s report, the minister will decide whether or not to appoint a conciliation board. The minister may also decide to appoint a mediator.  

While this represents a new phase of the bargaining process, it is expected that the parties will resume negotiations once the minister decides on the next steps.

Please refer to the FAQ section for details about the role of a conciliation board and of a mediator.
