Role of Conciliator

14.1 Conciliation is the process in which a conciliator seeks to facilitate a negotiated agreement in which the parties to a dispute, with the assistance of the conciliator, identify the disputed issues, develop options, consider alternatives and endeavour to reach an agreement.


14.2 The Conciliator will have an advisory role on the content of the dispute and/or the outcome of its resolution, but not a determinative one.  The Conciliator is to act in good faith and maintain a neutral, impartial position in assisting the parties to reach an agreement on a mutually accepted solution and to facilitate the negotiation process.


14.3 The Conciliator may, where the Conciliator considers it to be appropriate in connection with the conciliation of a dispute, express and record the Concilitor's opinion as to whether or not one or more parties to the dispute has acted on a fair and equitable basis within the meaning of Section 4.1.


14.4 The disputants shall bear their own costs of the conciliation and unless otherwise agreed, shall pay in equal shares the agreed Conciliator's fee and reasonable out of pocket expenses and any other reasonable costs of and incidental to the conciliation (such as hearing room fees).
