What is mediation and what does a mediator do?
A mediator, as provided for by the statute, delineates the problems involved in bargaining, seeks solutions which can reasonably be accepted by both parties, and determines common grounds for agreement. Mediators act as catalysts to move the parties' positions to the common ground and agreement. Techniques used by mediators are many and varied.
