Frustrations mount over Standing Fish Price Setting Panel's decision

The Union held a call with over 40 crab committee chairs from all over the province to hear representatives’ reactions to the Standing Fish Price Setting Panel's decision.

Harvesters expressed their inability to fish under the pricing system selected by the panel, which effectively eliminates their ability to earn a fair market share.

Harvesters also expressed their frustration at their legal inability to strike. Fleet chairs are asking all harvesters to respect the respective decisions of each fleet at this time.

“Crab harvesters fully understand the importance of their business to their families and their communities. This injustice must be corrected, and we expect that harvesters will support leadership’s position to not fish,” says FFAW-Unifor President Greg Pretty.
