Bargaining Session #12
January 22, 2016
The parties met from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM with mediator Lee Williamson. The definition of mediation from the American Arbitrators Association is a meeting among disputants, their representatives, and a mediator to discuss a settlement. The mediator’s role is to help the disputants explore issues, needs, and settlement options. The mediator will use different strategies and methods to reach agreement, and because of this, the process and results of mediation are confidential. The parties will not be posting descriptions of the sessions or publicizing tentative agreements reached during mediation sessions.
Sessions which do not use the assistance of a mediator will continue to be reported to you. Those sessions include February 11, 12 and 16. Please re-visit this website after those dates for more information on negotiations.
