Crewmembers of the Ocean Choice International owned fishing vessel Newfoundland Lynx have voted to accept a collective agreement with the company. 

According to the Fish Food and Allied Workers union, which represents the workers, membership voted 100 per cent in favour of ratifying the agreement. 

This vote officially ends the 10-week lock out of the regular crew. The company had brought in replacement workers to operate the vessel.

    I think we should get to know the details... Both sides were willing enough to fight in the media for all the world to hear... only right that we hear the final result since we had to put up with the rest of it.
