TRISTAN’S WOMEN SETTLE STRIKE
By J. Brock (SARTMA-TdC)
The strike by part time workers at Tristan da Cunha’s Lobster Factory has been settled. On Friday, 30 September 2005 the
fishing company in conjunction with the Head of Natural Resources and a Supervisor representing the women had a meeting at
which the Company made another offer.
This time the women accepted the deal, which has raised their per box rate by 12.94%, with extra fees for working on Saturday.
Although the offer was not what the women asked for, they felt that everyone wanted an end to the strike. If it had gone
on, the strike could have affected everyone on the Island and lost much needed revenue.
