FFAW rejects new offer from ASP

The FFAW says the Association of Seafood Producers presented a new offer yesterday for the price of snow crab. The association offered a minimum price of 2.20 for the entirety of the 2023 season with the ability for higher reconsiderations if markets improve.

The proposal included trip limits as well as an overage fund.

The majority of harvesters strongly oppose the proposal.

“Leadership throughout the province have been clear today: the crab is staying the water until harvesters get a higher share of the price,” says FFAW-Unifor President Greg Pretty. “FFAW-Unifor will formally reject ASP’s proposal, and the Bargaining Committee is preparing to meet for further discussions.”

FFAW-Unifor is continuing to call on the federal government to extend EI benefits.
