Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor
Longshoreman Retires After Being Charged with Associating with Organized Crime Members
June 01, 2010
On April 26, 2010, Waterfront Commission detectives served Longshoreman John Nicaretta with a Notice of Hearing charging him with associating with members and associates of the Genovese Organized Crime Family, including Joseph "Pepe" LaScala, Nicholas Furina and others. The next day, April 27, 2010, Nicaretta filed for retirement which became effective June 1, 2010. Nicaretta's hearing was scheduled to be held on June 8, 2010.
Nicaretta had been previously expelled from ILA Local 1588 for having further the influence of organized crime in the Port of New York and the Waterfront Commission had removed him as foreman at the Bayonne Auto Terminal Pier 42 because such privilege was not in conformance with the Waterfront Commission Act given his association with members of organized crime.
