EDISON - Dock workers tossed pineapples into the Delaware River yesterday to protest Del Monte's decision to move its produce operations to a less costly port.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the group will lose up to 300 jobs when Del Monte Fresh Produce Co. shifts its cargo from union ports in Camden to nearby Gloucester Terminals LLC.

Leo Holt, whose family runs the Gloucester City facility, has said Del Monte needed a more modern facility with appropriate capacity.

AP wire services contributed to this report.
