This program seeks to promote and sustain cooperative workplace relations in federally regulated workplaces, which cover strategically important sectors of the economy, including banking; telecommunications; broadcasting; air transportation; interprovincial rail, road and pipeline transportation; shipping; uranium mining and nuclear facilities; grain handling along with workplaces in the territories, Aboriginal public administration and some Crown corporations. The program provides mediation and conciliation services to assist employers and unions in achieving collective agreements without resorting to a work stoppage. It offers dispute prevention and relationship development assistance to parties in the form of skills development training, facilitation services and grievance mediation. This program also appoints arbitrators for grievances under Part I of the Canada Labour Code, for unjust dismissal and wage recovery appeals under Part III of the Code and appeals under the Wage Earner Protection Program Act.
