Confidential Mediation

Experiencing conflict at work?

Having trouble communicating in your professional life?
Feeling frustrated, vulnerable, or attacked?

You are not alone.

The Steelworkers local 1998 Internal Mediation Service (SIMS) may be able to help.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a confidential, voluntary, and effective process that brings people together, with mediators present, to help them reach a resolution to a dispute. The Steelworkers local 1998 Internal Mediation Service is a mediation process facilitated by a team of trained mediators who work with Local 1998 members to help resolve workplace conflicts.

SIMS uses a non-adversarial, interest-based problem-solving approach. Our process establishes a safe-space for dialogue; we will facilitate a process to help you be heard and understood by your co-worker, and have an opportunity to hear and understand from your co-worker their needs and concerns.

What type of situation does the SIMS deal with?

The service can help to resolve a variety of conflict situations; for example:

  • Workplace conduct (e.g., speaking tone, communication styles)
  • Workplace climate (e.g., dignity, respect, workplace culture)
  • Negotiating shared space & shared resources
  • Social and interpersonal interactions
