German term or phrase: kantonales Einigungsamt
Punkt Arbeitsfrieden und Konfliktbeilegung:

Kommt keine Einigung zustande, so entscheidet das kantonale Einigungsamt Schaffhausen. Die Vertragsparteien unterziehen sich einem allfälligen Entscheid dieser Instanz. Im Falle von Streitigkeiten, die das einzelne Arbeitsverhältnis betreffen, können die vertragsschliessenden Parteien zur Vermittlung angerufen werden. Wird eine Verständigung nicht er-zielt, entscheidet das zuständige Gericht.

Die Google Recherche zeigt, dass dem Einigungsamt die "Vermittlung bei Kollektivstreitigkeiten" obliegt. Ursprünglich dachte ich an Arbitration Office, aber ich nehme an, das ist doch zu weit gefasst, oder? Wäre "Dispute Resolution Office" eine Möglichkeit? Was meinen die Schweizer Kollegen? Danke für Eure Hilfe.

agree  Cetacea: I'd have gone for "Conciliation Office", too, but it seems that "Conciliation Board" is already established, see e.g. http://www.ch.ch/private/00029/00038/00377/00382/index.html?...

It could also simply mean a: Conciliation Office

Otherwise, I hope this link helps you find a good English translation.
