On September 17, Dalhousie’s labour counsel met by telephone with Labour Board Chair Tony Mozvik and counsel for the DFA and NSGEU.
They discussed the matters outstanding between Dalhousie and the Unions in the Labour Board application that Dalhousie filed. Dalhousie’s application asks that current members of the NSGEU EDC group be included in the DFA.
A small number of issues were identified as outstanding. The parties have agreed to meet on November 8 and 12, 2013 in an effort to reach a mediated resolution of these issues. We are hopeful that with the assistance of the Board Chair we will be able to work through these matters and merge the academic bargaining units at Dalhousie.
