Unisea Fishermen Strike in Unalaska PDF Print E-mail

            The Unisea pollock fleet is still on strike. It began over two weeks ago when the season opened on January 20th. Captains from multiple boats, who prefer not to be named, say they began the strike because they are holding out for higher pay.

            The other major processors are offering 36.5 percent of profits but Unisea is only offering 36 percent. The captains say they just want to be treated fairly and be offered the same price as everyone else.

            One captain said it was fortunate that the fishing is starting so slowly this season because the striking boats aren't being hurt as badly. He added that if he weren't striking he would be out looking for pollock right now.

            Though the fleet has gone on strike before, it has never been for this long. The Unisea Co-Op is negotiating with the Unisea management in Seattle. Unisea president Terry Shaff could not be reached for comment.

           On this week's show: Pollock fishermen have been idled in Dutch Harbor, causing a ripple effect that is far-reaching. The salmon season this summer is looking increasingly bleak for Yukon River fishermen - but there is some relief for their plight coming from Seattle. And a crewman purposely jumps overboard and refuses all attempts at rescue. We had help from freelance producer Mike Mason in Anchorage, and lots of help from KUCB's Anne Hillman in Unalaska.

            Juneau has a new harbormaster. Phil Benner of Haines topped a field of 20 candidates for the position. He's spent the past two years overseeing harbors in Haines. Before that, the Navy veteran spent three years as a harbor patrol officer here in Kodiak.

            Kodiak Harbormaster Marty Owen said Benner did a great job for the city of Kodiak, and he recommended him highly when Haines, and then Juneau, city officials called for references. Owen said Benner got his basic harbor training here in Kodiak, and says he's really proud of his advancement. 

(KMXT's Jay Barrett contributed to this report.)
