However, on 19 May 1967, the DSFU and PRVOA issued a joint statement announcing that PRVOA boats with DSFU crews planned to begin leaving for the fishing grounds:
Three months after triggering the dispute between the DSFU, PRVOA, and the UFAWU, Viggio Mark, owner-skipper of the White Swan, landed at the Co-op plant with a load of trawl fish on Friday, 19 May 1967.
Throughout June and July the DSFU and the PRVOA held firm in their position that the UFAWU had no right to represent Co-op fishers on the longline and trawl vessels.
Faced with the threat of decertification and pressure from the Canadian Labour Congress, the UFAWU representatives met with the DSFU in an attempt to resolve the two union's jurisdictional dispute.
However, despite having signed a memorandum of understanding, the DSFU membership unanimously rejected the agreement.
All Co-op fishers were represented by the DSFU. Two of the UFAWU's leaders received jail terms for their part in the dispute and the Union was fined $25,000 for counseling its members to disobey the 23 March 1967 court injunction.
