Treaty negotiators are the people who facilitate the creation and signing
of a treaty.
Treaty negotiators can be native or non-native people working for the government,
for treaty commissions or for native bands. They can be part-time or full-time
employees. Or they can work as private consultants.
A treaty negotiator generally works an eight-hour workday. However, work
can run later if there is an impasse in talks, or if an area of discussions
needs to be wrapped up. Meetings can also be held in the evenings or on weekends.
Treaty negotiators work in offices and also must travel to meetings, conferences
and to sites chosen for treaty negotiations. During the process, the hours
can be long and travel can be frequent.
