Except for requests for injunctive and other equitable relief, if we have a disagreement or dispute that we are unable to resolve between us, we both agree to continue to try to resolve our dispute in good faith. In this case, the person with the unresolved issue will provide the other a “Notice of Dispute.” This Notice of Dispute will include a statement that outlines the cause of the grievance.
Within 20 days of receipt of the Notice of Dispute, we will meet at a mutually agreed upon time and place, electronically or in person, to work, in good faith, to resolve the dispute. Additional meetings shall take place as necessary and as mutually agreed upon.
Except for requests for injunctive and other equitable relief, neither one of us can begin formal proceedings until we have concluded, in good faith, that a reasonable and mutually acceptable resolution is unlikely within 60 days after receipt of the Notice of Dispute.
If we are unable to resolve the dispute within a reasonable period not exceeding 60 days of receipt of Notice of Dispute, we will submit the dispute for non-binding mediation by a single mediator who is competent in the issues involved, using a center of mediation located in Minnesota, using their chosen rules and procedures in effect at the time of mediation—provided that the parties may, but are not required to, agree on another mediation service. The parties shall cooperate with the mediation service and with one another in selecting a neutral mediator and in scheduling the mediation proceedings. The parties covenant that they will use commercially reasonable efforts in participating in the mediation. The mediator’s fees and expenses and the costs incidental to the mediation will be shared equally between the parties, provided that each party is responsible for their own attorneys’ fees, if any.
