Mediation and Concillation

Mediation and Conciliation

The Mediation and Conciliation Division is responsible for intervening in any labor dispute, strictly in a mediatory or conciliatory capacity, to assist both parties in reaching an equitable agreement.

The Federal Labor Management Relations Act of 1947 requires all parties wishing to amend or terminate an agreement to notify both state and federal mediation authorities of their intent. Our state mediator’s responsibility is to then promote peace and harmony in employer/employee relations by encouraging voluntary arbitration between parties, thereby avoiding lockouts, boycotts, blacklists, discrimination, and legal proceedings. The state mediator holds all information obtained during negotiations in the strictest of confidence and his services are free of charge.
