Minister of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Appoints Special Mediator

Released on April 3, 2013

Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan has appointed Richard Hornung as special mediator in a bid to end the contract dispute between Evraz Place (Regina Exhibition Association Ltd.) and The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU) Local 568.

Mr. Hornung is a well known and accomplished mediator, conciliator and arbitrator with a national practice based in Calgary.  He is a former Chair of the Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board.

Under The Trade Union Act and The Human Resources, Labour and Employment Act, the Minister has the authority to appoint a special mediator to mediate and report to the Minister on any labour-management dispute.  Given the prolonged period of negotiations and the implications of this dispute for third parties hosting upcoming special events, the appointment of a special mediator is warranted.
