June 16, 2021 – Negotiations on the Summer price for shrimp were held this week. After three days of negotiations, your Union and ASP remained far apart in their price positions. A hearing to set the price will be held tomorrow with the Standing Fish Price Setting Panel.
The FFAW price submission is for $1.22 per pound, which accurately reflects the current market.
The ASP price submission is $1.10 per pound.
The Panel must accept either the FFAW-Unifor or ASP price positions. We anticipate a decision next week, and will provide updates promptly to members once the decision has been made.
Thank You to the negotiating committee for your work and insights this week.
