POLICE UNION IMPASSE GOES TO MEDIATION

Oct. 6, 2001 – A mediator has been appointed to step into an impasse in contract negotiations between the Police Benevolent Association and the V.I. government.
PBA Locals 816 and 1910 rejected the government's offer to return to the bargaining table on Oct. 24. The administration then asked the Public Employees Relations Board to appoint a mediator, and the PERB granted the request.
The PERB held a preliminary conference on Friday to allow each party to state its positions and to explore any possible settlement, a Government House release stated.
Commissioner Frances S. Dunham of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Sevice has been asked to begin the mediation "as soon as practical," the release stated. It said the mediator is required to report the parties' progress to the PERB within 14 days of when mediation begins.
