Port of Seattle's Terminal 18A longshore worker has died of injuries he suffered in a workplace accident Thursday on Harbor Island, triggering a day-long work stoppage at the Port of Seattle.
Longshoremen’s Union Local 19 called a 24-hour work stoppage at the Port of Seattle after the worker’s death, as allowed under their labor contract. The work stoppage is intended to allow workers time to grieve and to give investigators an opportunity to find out what happened.

Last week The News Tribune speculated that the Port of Tacoma’s updates to its Pier 3 infrastructure would allow the port to host Maersk Line’s new “Triple E” containerships, the world’s largest vessels.
The Port of Tacoma had been recruiting Maersk to return to Tacoma after it left two years ago to join its containership partner CMA CGM at the Port of Seattle.
But now Port of Tacoma spokeswoman Tara Mattina says Maersk has signed a contract that will keep it calling at the Port of Seattle for several more years.
