FFAW Calls for Drastic Changes to Provincial Processing Licensing

The FFAW is calling on the provincial government to listen to protesting fish harvesters by lifting all processing caps in the province, grant new processing licenses, and remove restrictions on outside buyers.

The union also wants a commitment from the provincial government to undertake an independent review of the province’s processing licensing policy.

“Fish harvesters in our province have been disadvantaged long enough. The situation has gotten so severe in recent years that a very large number are now facing imminent bankruptcy due to the cartel-like environment processing companies enjoy here in Newfoundland and Labrador,” says Greg Pretty, President of FFAW-Unifor.
