FISH-NL statement on labour board decision

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Friday, Sept. 28th, 2018
The Federation of Independent Sea Harvesters of Newfoundland and Labrador (FISH-NL) is in the process or reviewing the decision by the province’s Labour Relations Board to dismiss its application for certification.


“FISH-NL will have more to say on the decision — and whether an appeal will be filed — in the coming days,” says Ryan Cleary, President of FISH-NL.

“But if the FFAW-Unifor or or anyone else involved in the province’s fishing industry believes for one second this decision will bring an end to growing labour unrest within the inshore fishery, they’re living in la la labour land.”
