The parties have not made meaningful progress on a number of outstanding articles. With the agreement of CUEFA, CUE asked the Labour Relations Board to assign a mediator to the parties to assist and hopefully resolve the issues. Mediation is scheduled to occur on the following dates:
September 30, 2016
October 1, 6, & 7, 2016
At mediation both CUE and the CUEFA will have the opportunity to outline their proposals and understandings before mediated discussions will occur. CUE believes that this process will assist us to find common ground and move forward productively.
