MUNZ branch president dies at Lyttelton Port

Members of the Maritime Union of New Zealand (MUNZ) are mourning today after president of their Lyttelton branch died in a port accident.

40 year old Brad Fletcher is the third person to die at Lyttelton Port in the past 12 months.

He fell to his death after the scissor-lift he was in toppled over and came to rest on top of a truck carrying a container.
Maritime Union National Secretary Joe Fleetwood said the Union would be supporting his workmates and family.
