TO: All MUNFA Members FROM: The MUNFA Executive Committee DATE: March 2, 2007 SUBJECT: CONCILIATION UPDATE
As you may recall, MUNFA wrote to the Minister of Human Resources, Labour and Employment, the Hon. Shawn Skinner on February 15, requesting the appointment of a conciliation board. On February 22, MUNFA received a reply to our letter, signed by the Director of Labour Relations, Ms. Yvonne Scott, announcing the appointment of Mr. Brian Kenny as conciliation officer to assist the parties in negotiations. Mr. Kenny has now arranged that MUNFA and the employer will meet in the first face-to-face bargaining session in some weeks, beginning at 9 am, Monday, March 5, at the Labour Relations Agency offices in the Beothuck Building on Crosbie Place.
