Fish plant workers throughout the province will vote Tuesday on a last minute tentative agreement reached on the weekend between the Fish, Food and Allied Workers union and Fishery Products International.

FFAW president Earle McCurdy said that in light of the tentative agreement, the union has extended its strike deadline at FPI plants which had been today by one week. The deadline has been extended to 12:01 a.m. Monday, April 30.

McCurdy said the latest proposal involves significant improvements on a number of issues from the company offer rejected by the FPI bargaining unit less than two weeks ago.

Ratification meetings are set to be held at seven locations around the province to vote on the tentative agreement. McCurdy said the union would not release details of the proposal until voting concludes Tuesday night.

FPI employs about 1,700 workers at facilities located in Marystown, Burin, Bonavista, Port Union, Dildo, Triton and Port au Choix.

Organizations: Fishery Products International, Allied Workers union, Port Union

Geographic location: Marystown, Port au Choix
