ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - A fisheries union and seafood processors in Newfoundland and Labrador finalized a deal Saturday that ends the tie-up in the province's crab fishery.
The Fish, Food and Allied Workers Union said two weeks ago that its members wouldn't go to sea until processors offered them a higher price.
Processors said Saturday they've agreed to pay an additional 17 cents a pound for all sales up to and including May 4.
The parties also agreed to set up a committee this fall to develop options for crab pricing structures aimed at avoiding price disputes in the future.
Union president Earle McCurdy has said fishermen were expecting a higher price based on what processing companies were indicating over the winter.
