Mass Demonstration on Wednesday

March 18, 2019

FFAW-Unifor is holding a mass demonstration Wednesday, March 20 beginning at 12 pm at the Delta Hotel in St. John’s followed by a march through downtown.

Our Union is expecting a large turnout of fish harvesters, plant workers and citizens united in their concern for the future of our fisheries.

Around the province, DFO shuts out fish harvesters from science processes and continues to make fisheries management decisions without any meaningful consultation with inshore harvesters.

FFAW-Unifor intends to send a strong message to DFO and the federal government that fish harvesters deserve respect and a seat at the table.

Policy makers at DFO and federal politicians need to understand the impact their decisions will have on our province for generations to come.


The Delta has 100 parking spaces available in the hotel parking garage and there is also a second, larger parking garage across the street on Barter’s Hill.

For those not wishing to drive or park downtown, there will be a shuttle bus from Mount Pearl Walmart beginning at 10 am with the last run departing at 11:30 am. The shuttle will return people to Mount Pearl following the march.

The Delta Hotel is located at 120 New Gower Street in downtown St. John’s.

For questions or additional information, please contact your staff rep or Inshore/IRO Council member, or call the FFAW office at 576-7276.
