ITF: Los Angeles Port Incident Takes Life of Longshoreman

An International Longshore and Warehouse Union’s longshoreman has lost his life in fatal incident in Los Angeles, U.S.

The worker passed on May 15, according to the International Transport Workers’ Federation.

The incident occurred at the Fenix Marine Services at Pier 300 in the port, and it also critically injured a second worker.

“Any loss of life is one too many and we will continue to dedicate our work to ensure every worker must return home safety and that if deaths are caused by employer or regulatory negligence those responsible need to go to jail,” ITF said.
