The PERB is an independent impartial agency of the Government of the Virgin Islands which administers dispute resolution procedures. One of these dispute resolution procedures is the grievance mediation process. A request (voluntary) can be provided pursuant to an applicable provision of a collective bargaining agreement (CBA), or mediation can be ordered by the PERB. In either case, the mediation process is to assist the parties in reaching their own settlement of a particular dispute(s) which in turn,when resolved, saves them from the high cost of arbitration.

Mediation is a process in which an impartial third party assists disputants in finding a mutually acceptable solution to their dispute. It is both voluntary and confidential.
