The FFAW-Unifor Snow Crab Negotiating Committee met this morning to review the latest developments since Saturday when the proposal from ASP was rejected. The Committee is firm that no movement will be made by harvesters until there is movement in the minimum price. The Committee will be developing a counterproposal to submit to ASP for consideration.

We thank all members for their solidarity and patience during this very difficult and certainly unprecedented time. Ensuring inshore harvesters receive a fair share for their catch is paramount to the long-term sustainability and prosperity of Newfoundland and Labrador – for plant workers, for fish harvesters, for all fishery workers and those who make their home in coastal communities.
