Mediator's role in Grievance Mediation

The mediator decides whether to hold separate or joint sessions to assist the parties in reaching a voluntary settlement. An agreement to mediate does not alter a scheduled arbitration date unless both parties agree.

Mediator confidentiality

The mediator is not required to disclose any files, records, documents, notes, or other papers, or be required to testify with regard to any information obtained while functioning as a mediator.  No discussions, offers of compromise, or proposed settlements generated during a grievance mediation are admissible as evidence in an arbitration proceeding.
