Newfoundland and Labrador is conducting an independent review of the collective bargaining model in its fishing industry.

Bernard Davis, Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Minister Responsible for Labour, announced the review of the model contained in sections 19.1 – 19.14 of the Fishing Industry Collective Bargaining Act.

David Conway, former chair of the Labour Relations Board, has been appointed to undertake the review. Conway will be informed by input from fish harvesters, processors and their respective organizations as well as other interested parties.

“Efficient and effective fish price setting is key to ensuring fisheries commence in a timely manner for the maximum benefit of the province’s fishing industry,” said Derrick Bragg, Minister of Fisheries and Agriculture. “I look forward to this review and identifying opportunities to improve the fish price setting process that better serves processors and harvesters.”


Interested parties are invited to provide input by emailing ficbareview@gov.nl.ca.
