Abstract: The United Fishermen and Allied Workers Union is promoting a boycott of buyers of Canadian fish who export the catch to the United States at the cost of local jobs. According to union president Jack Nichol, the Canadian processing industry is being destroyed as fish are sold to the U.S. for processing rather than being processed in Canada. He is urging salmon fishermen to place large "pro-Canada fleet" stickers on their boats and to refuse to sell to U.S. fish buyers who truck the fish south for processing.
