Conciliation Guidebook

This guidebook has been developed as an information source of statutory provisions, rules, and current administrative practices which outline the structure for the conciliation dispute settlement process of the Ohio State Employment Relations Board. The policies in the guidebook are subject to change and are not binding upon the State Employment Relations Board in its subsequent determination of procedural or substantive issues of law. 

These guidelines are not comprehensive. The parties continue to be responsible for knowing all statutory and rule provisions governing the statutory dispute settlement procedure. Please contact the Bureau of Mediation if you have questions concerning the dispute settlement process. 

The guidebook discusses the following items: 

  • Conciliation Process 
  • Conciliation Eligibility 
  • Selection of Conciliator 
  • Issuance and Appeal of Award
