Minister Responds to Request for an External Mediator


Minister of Labour and Advanced Education Kelly Regan has considered the request from the Nova Scotia Teachers Union to appoint an external mediation officer.

Under the legislation, the minister may appoint a mediator when she believes it may bring about settlement of, or prevent, a dispute. The minister has decided not to appoint a mediator at this time.

“I’ve considered the information available, and I don’t believe an external mediator could assist in resolving this dispute at this time,” said Ms. Regan. “I will continue to monitor the situation, and I’m prepared to revisit this decision should circumstances change.”

The Department of Labour and Advanced Education’s conciliation and mediation officers remain available to meet should the parties wish to use them.
