Companies Paying Below Minimum Price is a Clear Violation of Collective Agreement

June 30, 2022

The Union has had many conversations with harvesters in recent days regarding pressures from companies to pay below the minimum set price for snow crab.

If the price schedule does not specify deductions or weighbacks, it is a violation of the agreement between ASP and our Union to pay less than the minimum price. Plant owners pressuring harvesters to opt out of the pricing agreement are in violation of the agreement and will be taken to arbitration by the Union.

The FFAW is dealing with all concerns brought forward and we encourage all impacted harvesters to reach out for support as we deal with companies’ unlawful behaviour. For further questions, discussion or to file a grievance, please contact Dwan Street at or at 576-7276.
