Synopsis By: Dissen - Proceeding Author: Jack Finkelman

An outline of fact-finding procedures for federal public service employees in Canada. The broad sentiment is that fact-finding tribunals should be eliminated in favor of mediation, a sentiment the author shares. Presently, mediation is an entirely voluntary after-step to fact-finding. If mediation is elected by either party, the union may select in advance whether the terminal step will be mediation with recommendations or binding arbitration.
