A farm workers' union says a Jamaican migrant worker has died in a truck accident on a Paris-area tobacco farm.

UFCW Canada says it's the sixth death of a Jamaican migrant worker on an Ontario farm over the past decade.

The worker was killed while driving a pickup truck that was towing a trailer packed with tobacco.

The accident is still under investigation.

UFCW president Wayne Hanley says improved safety, along with workplace and labour rights are needed for agriculture workers.
