MEDIATION AND ARBITRATION SERVICE

Legal person under private law with its headquarters in Athens, established by Law 1876/1990 (Article 7) and financed by the Workers' Welfare Foundation , a state subsidy and the sums it collects for the services it provides. It is governed by an Executive Council consisting of a total of eleven members: three representatives of the employers' organizations (SEV, GSEVEE and EESE); three representatives of the Greek General Confederation of Labour ( GSEE ); one representative of the Ministry of Labour; three independent experts comprising a senior academic specializing in economics or industrial relations, a senior academic specializing in labour law and an expert in employment-related matters who is proposed by the executive council of the Association of Labour Law and Social Insurance; and, lastly, a person of standing who possesses independent experience.

The mediators and arbitrators used constitute a special body: they perform a public function without being public servants and are appointed by the Executive Council, provided they meet the qualifications laid down by the Law, for a three-year period of service. This new (and somewhat novel) institution has been functioning only since the spring of 1991 (see arbitration , industrial dispute , mediation ).
