OCI defending itself; company starts swinging back at union

in Daily Indygestion/Email Indygestion/Journalism by

CBC will feature an interview this Saturday with OCI President Martin Sullivan, who by all accounts will start to hit back at the FFAW which has been hammering the company since closures of plants in Port Union and Marystown last fall. “They proposed to us that we should shut down Fortune, we should move the Fortune operations to Marystown,” Sullivan insisted to host David Cochrane. “That’s the hypocrisy of the union. They’re out in Fortune saying we want Fortune and Marystown to operate, and they’re in telling us that we should close Fortune and move it to Marystown.” Make time to watch the full interview on the CBC on Saturday at 7:30 p.m… with the story so one-sided so far, it should be interesting to hear from OCI.

Loyola Sullivan accused of conflict of interest in work with OCI

in Daily Indygestion/Email Indygestion/Journalism by

Ocean Choice International is getting knocked from all directions – this time from the provincial Liberal party. The CBC has reported that the party’s fisheries critic Jim Bennett has asked the federal ethics and conflict of interest commissioner to investigate whether or not Loyola Sullivan’s employment with OCI is breaking the rules. Sullivan was Canada’s fisheries conservation ambassador until taking a job with OCI; current rules require bureaucrats sit out for a one-year cooling-off period before taking on private-sector employment which relates to their former public work. “Prior to taking this job, I did submit, to (the) conflict of interest (commissioner) last June, my job description to them,” Sullivan told the CBC. “I spoke to them on at least two occasions, and was given the go-ahead to be able to accept this employment.” OCI continues to get hammered in the public arena, and this latest accusation is a kick while…

OCI closes plants in Marystown, Port Union

in Featured/Journalism by

Ocean Choice International, owner and operator of seafood processing plants across the province, has announced this afternoon that it is closing its operations in Marystown and Port Union. Just last week an external audit performed by Deloitte confirmed the company’s assertion that processing yellowtail at the Marystown plant has cost the company nearly $10 million in just the past three years. A strong Canadian dollar and high fuel costs were the primary causes. Meanwhile, the shrimp processing plant in Port Union has been closed since the Fall of 2010 after severe damage was caused during Hurricane Igor. As the company cited delays in working with its insurance companies as a cause, rumours have been circulating that OCI would not reopen the plant at all. Lower shrimp quotas and availability at other Newfoundland plants have perhaps made the plant redundant. Recently Ocean Choice CEO Martin Sullivan has been very outspoken about…

Ocean Choice workers vote against offer to reopen Marystown plant

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

Employees at the Marystown Ocean Choice International fish plant have voted 98 per cent to reject an offer from Ocean Choice International. The offer would provide 18 weeks of work to employees every year for the next three years at the Marystown plant, with a promise to pay the company’s portion of group life and health insurance monthly for a 35-week period. OCI chief operating officer Blaine Sullivan understands the workers’ frustration, but it’s not only the employees who are facing this economic hardship. OCI now has to decide where it goes from here; either the company leaves the fish in the water, or it processes it at another plant somewhere in the province that would be more feasible.
