Mediation later this month for USW and IFLRA

The USW Bargaining Committee and the Interior Forest Labour Relations Association  have agreed to mediation through the BC Labour Relations Board...

 Dave Shaub has been appointed as mediator, with talks scheduled for November 14th to 16th in Kelowna.

Following a 98% strike mandate by the USW membership last month, 72-hour strike notice was served putting over 3000 members in a legal strike position.

No job action will take place during the mediation process.

Mills covered under the collective agreement include Interfor in Castlegar.
