Statement on Seattle Terminal Closures

The Port of Seattle and The Northwest Seaport Alliance have been made aware of a member of International Longshore & Warehouse Union Local 19 passing away at the Pier 86 grain facility.  As is tradition after a member dies while at work, facilities in Seattle only will be closed for the remainder of the day, with shifts starting again tomorrow morning.  We offer our deepest condolences to ILWU and the worker’s family and friends during this difficult time.
