PORTLAND, Ore. —

A Portland longshoreman sustained minor injuries after getting hit by a truck while picketing at the Port of Portland.

Jennifer Sargent, a spokeswoman for the International Longshore & Warehouse Union, says the worker is recovering at home after injuring his knee, elbow and back. She declined to release his identity.

The union says the incident occurred Thursday when a truck driver got into an argument with workers while trying to cross a picket line and his vehicle moved forward.

The operator of a Columbia River grain terminal locked out union dock workers two weeks ago amid an escalating contract dispute.
