The Unisea pollock fleet is on strike. The strike began when the season opened on January 20th. Captains from multiple boats say they are holding out for higher pay. The other major processors are offering 36.5%t of profits but Unisea is only offering 36%. The captains say they just want to be treated fairly and be offered the same price as everyone else.
