“We are pleased to see that the tentative agreement was satisfactory to the membership at the Country Ribbon,” said Jerry Earle, NAPE President. “This means that our proud, dedicated, and hard working members can continue to make high-quality chicken products right here in Newfoundland and Labrador.”
