6. Conciliation Declarations: Contracting parties send written mediation statements to the Mediator and other contracting parties at least one week before the scheduled conciliation meeting. The written statements describe the positions of the contracting parties, previous comparative positions and contain all substantive documents (such as briefs, court decisions, contracts or opinions) necessary to enable the mediator to understand the dispute. The parties may also provide the mediator with a private statement (i.e. a statement that is not communicated to other parties) on issues or negotiating positions. For organizations and companies represented by a collaborator in mediation, it is important to clarify the authority of the employee. It can be a bargaining power without being able to make final decisions; Maybe he`ll have to inquire about one of his superiors. In this case, the mediator is required to determine the exact extent of the negotiator`s power. This must be done in the first meeting, with gentleness and diplomacy, by asking simple and direct questions, such as: “If we reach an agreement, could you sign it?” or “Is there someone who needs to confirm your decisions?” 3. Voluntary: Mediation is voluntary. Any party may, at any time, withdraw or suspend mediation for any reason.
In addition, the mediator may suspend or terminate mediation if he or she believes that mediation will result in an unjustified or inappropriate outcome; that the impasse has been reached; or that it can no longer effectively act as an intermediary. For his part, the Ombudsman may continue with one or more parties after the first conclusion of mediation if the Mediator believes that there could be more potential for movement or implementation. The agreement will be understandable and credible for all parties and will face the harsh experience of reality. 3. Identify the subjects and interests in the confrontation, what came first? What is relatively important and relatively insignificant? Responses must be placed in the context not only of the parties and intermediaries, but also of the existing law and practices. It is important to establish a hierarchy of points in the dispute (and thus also to prioritize the points of the mediation agreement). When drafting the agreement, the most difficult and controversial issues should first be addressed.
