The International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE) released the following statement in response to yesterday’s shooting at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard:
“The officers, members and staff of IFPTE send our deepest condolences to the families of the three IFPTE Local 121 members who were the victims of a senseless shooting that occurred yesterday afternoon at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard in Hawaii. It is with great sadness to report that two of the three workers have passed away, while the third worker remains hospitalized. These victims are not only dedicated IFPTE union members, they are hard-working public servants who go to work each day to serve the taxpayers and our military forces. They are reflective of the thousands of workers at Pearl Harbor and elsewhere that go to work to earn a living and serve their nation.

“No worker should have to go to work without the expectation of safely returning to their family and loved ones. IFPTE not only stands ready to assist these IFPTE represented families during this difficult time, we also send our deepest sympathies to their families, and all of our Sisters and Brothers at Local 121.”
