Fact finding. Following mediation, the next step in the process is to go to “Fact Finding.” The two parties work together to choose a fact finder, who will set a time and place for a fact-finding hearing.
During that hearing, the fact finder will take testimony from the district and the union, examine documents and ask questions of witnesses. Once the hearing is complete, the fact finder will issue a report and recommendations to the two parties. The district and the union are currently in the fact finding stage.
