Unifor calls on federal government to revoke Jim Pattison Group’s fishing licences

If Jim Pattison Group’s Canadian Fishing Company unifor-shield-rgb_0 (CFC) cannot generate good jobs with a majority control in the salmon fishery, the federal government should revoke the fishing licences, said the union representing cannery workers in Prince Rupert. CFC announced last week that it has plans to close the last production canning facility in British Columbia, costing up to 500 jobs and virtually closing the community’s largest employer. “Fish caught in northern BC waters should be processed in a north coast plant,” said Joie Warnock, Unifor’s Western Director.
