Heinz threatened with strike as row over ‘below inflation rise boils over

first_img HEINZ workers could be balloted for strikes in a pay dispute, the Unite union warned yesterday.Unite said its members at the food giant’s site in Wigan were calling a vote in protest at a below inflation rise this year and a capped increase for next year of three per cent. Jennie Formby, Unite national officer for food and drink, said: “There is absolutely no need for Heinz to be so stingy. “The baked beans produced here are favourites in every household in the land. “In these difficult economic times, Heinz are doing exceptionally well with massive profits this year and forecasts to do the same in 2011.“So why tell workers that they can only have 3.3 per cent this year when shareholders get offered a tasty ten per cent?Unite said it would begin the formal process of preparing to ballot members at the Wigan site within weeks unless the pay offer is increased. But Heinz said it was “perplexed” by talk of a strike ballot when site union representatives “acknowledge this final offer is the best that can be achieved”. The firm said that in addition to a pay rise of 3.3 per cent this year and up to three per cent next year, the offer also included an annual non-performance-related fixed payment of two weeks’ basic pay, a one-off payment of £200 plus “significant improvements” to the healthcare scheme.

Biggest Apopka stories of 2016: Three shootings in 8 days

first_img Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Mourners light candles at the spot Bryant was shot and killed.Editor’s Note: This is the third in a series of articles published by The Apopka Voice in 2016 that were the most noteworthy events of the year. The Apopka Voice will publish them starting today and running until Friday, December 30th. During the New Year’s weekend (Friday, December 30th – Sunday, January 1st) we will publish a poll and let the readers decide on which story is the most impactful of the year. Originally Published: March 25th, 2016Apopka Mourns the Loss of Contondre Bryant at Prayer VigilApopka is burning, and it is hurting.For several months, maybe several years or for a generation it has smoldered, but now there is a five-alarm fire raging and it’s claiming lives – particularly young ones.Three Apopka residents have been shot and killed in the last month – two of them teenagers. The most recent murder was on Monday.  Contondre Bryant was gunned down in a grassy field between the fenced-in playground at Taylor Apartments and the St. Elizabeth Church of God by Faith on Old Apopka Road near 13th Street and across from a part of The West Orange Trail. According to The Orange County Sheriff’s Office, there were up to 40 witnesses, but none are cooperating with the authorities.On the same spot Bryant was killed, his mother, Tonya English, spoke at a prayer vigil held yesterday afternoon. She talked directly to the friends of her son, a predominantly young black group of about 100 people that turned out to pay their respects.“Ain’t nothing gangster about being dead, she said. “I don’t want to do this no more. I’m tired of the youth being killed.”The playground at Taylor Apartments is next to the grassy area where Contondre Bryant was shot.Despite her son’s murder only a few days ago, English spoke of hope to the teenagers and young people assembled at the gathering.“Get your act together. When I look out at you, I don’t see thugs. I see doctors and lawyers. Stop living in a box. Obama was the first black President. You can live, and you can be anything you want.”Bishop Kelvin Cobaris spoke about personal responsibility, but then also made a direct plea to the assembled teenagers.“Apopka is a great place, but it’s not about Apopka,” he said. “It’s about the decisions we make. The best thing you can do for this mother (English) is to make sure your mother isn’t standing here next week.” Reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 TAGSapopkaContondre Bryantsouth apopka Previous articleNo services for City of Apopka residents todayNext articleBiggest Apopka stories of 2016: “Scumbag” AOK Tire Store Burglar arrested!

Protesters demand justice for India Cummings

first_imgAn angry crowd of protesters occupied the steps of the Erie County Holding Center in Buffalo, N.Y. on April 4, once again demanding justice for India Cummings, a young Black woman who died at the hands of guards at the center. The crowd demanded the ouster of Sheriff Tim Howard after this most recent death under suspicious circumstances at the jail.Caravans of activists from Rochester, N.Y., Cummings’ hometown, participated in solidarity with the families of those who have been murdered by police.Protesters occupied a number of locations in downtown Buffalo, marching and blocking traffic on multiple streets and unfurling a banner that demanded “Not One More!” between the flagpoles of the Erie County building. The protest ended with the chant derived from an Assata Shakur poem: “We have a duty to fight for our freedom!”The march was one of an ever-growing series of protests. The next one will be at the Holding Center on May 2.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Climate change is driving social change

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this The terrible news on unfolding climate change can have opposite effects on people: despair, lassitude and denial — or angry energy.The ranks of those in this country who buy into the lie, promoted by the fossil fuel industry and repeated by opportunist politicians like Trump, that denies climate change are thinning out, as evidence of its reality mounts. Sometimes it hits in their own backyards, whether it’s fierce storms or wild fires or floods. The young in particular, for whom the future is a big chunk of their own lives, are driving the movement demanding governments and corporations take meaningful steps to turn around what seems like an unstoppable slide into climate chaos.And more and more, people in this movement are targeting capitalism as the problem and socialism as the answer. It’s about time — and there IS still time.What can bring about changeOver the last century and a half — a period when the industrialization of the planet led to massive amounts of greenhouse gases accumulating in the atmosphere like a great blanket warming the Earth — we have seen people organize and do what seemed impossible when they are convinced that their collective interests outweigh their own personal needs and desires. Tragically, this ability to sacrifice and struggle has been made use of by the ruling classes of the imperialist world, who have indoctrinated people by the hundreds of millions to fight and die “for their country.” In fact, the 20th century’s world wars, as well as devastating “police actions” — think Vietnam and Korea — were driven not by noble sentiments of democracy and freedom, but by the ferocious need for markets and profits built into the capitalist system. Learning otherwise — as have so many GIs who were forced into the Vietnam War and now visit that socialist country in friendship — is a shattering but necessary experience.In recent decades, when capitalist governments call on the masses of people for more sacrifice, cynicism has replaced enthusiasm. And understandably so. But cynicism is the absence of belief or conviction. It is what you do, not what you scoff at and don’t do, that changes the tide of history.An anti-capitalist movement is developing all over the globe in response to the crimes of imperialism. One of its urgent issues is climate change. Can enough be done to stop global warming before the “tipping point” is reached which, scientists warn, would make it irreversible?Obviously, this will take mass mobilization on a grand scale. It will take thoughtful and organized restructuring of the way we humans live, work and get enjoyment out of life. Such restructuring is completely at odds with a profit-driven economic system.Uniting the forces for socialismThe working class potentially has the power and organization to paralyze capitalism, bring down its repressive state and mobilize for the planned, socialist reconstruction of society to benefit the producers, not the exploiters. And it needs allies among those people not directly exploited at the point of production but suffering from capitalism in every other way. The struggle for a sustainable system, socialism, can unite these class forces.Right now, the greatest energy for social change is coming from those most exploited and oppressed by this system. It is the peoples of Africa, Central and South America and the Caribbean, much of West and East Asia and the Pacific, who have contributed the least to global warming but are suffering the most from its consequences. The recent cyclone that hit Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, killing more than 600 people at a minimum and devastating hundreds of thousands, is a case in point. So is the hurricane devastation of Puerto Rico that continues. But we must also include the massive floods in the U.S. Midwest, where those most affected are always the poor, who lack adequate shelter and can’t afford flood insurance. Despair won’t get us anywhere. The only effective response to global warming is to fight like hell for workers’ power and socialism.last_img read more

Hojatullah Mujadadi acquitted and freed after four months in prison

first_img Help by sharing this information AfghanistanAsia – Pacific to go further Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says March 11, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders hails leading Afghan journalist Hojatullah Mujadadi’s acquittal today at the end of a two-day trial on a trumped-up charge of abetting insurgents, but deplores the fact that he was held for the four months prior to the trial.A former National Radio reporter who now runs Radio Kapisa FM, a station based in the northeastern province of Kapisa, Mujadadi was arrested by the National Directorate of Security, Afghanistan’s leading domestic intelligence agency, on 18 September.Shortly after his release at the end of the trial, Mujadadi told Reporters Without Borders: “Life in prison was harsh but I am in good health. After all that happened, I believe more than ever in my work as a journalist. I thank all the freedom of expression organizations in Afghanistan and abroad. My release is the result of their solidarity.” Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” Follow the news on Afghanistan January 19, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Hojatullah Mujadadi acquitted and freed after four months in prison ——————–Radio station director completes third month of being held for no good reason17-12-2010Reporters Without Borders is outraged by Radio Kapisa director Hojatullah Mujadadi’s prolonged detention by the Afghan intelligence agency known as the National Directorate of Security (NDS). Tomorrow, Mujadadi will complete his third month of being held at NDS headquarters in Kabul, where he has not been allowed to see a lawyer.The NDS and certain officials in the northeastern province of Kapisa, where Mujadadi’s radio station is based, have behaved in an illegal and unreasonable manner in this case. Mujadadi is neither a terrorist, nor an insurgent nor a criminal. He is a respected journalist whose only offence was to upset officials in Kapisa.President Hamid Karzai’s credibility as someone able to enforce respect for the rule of law and guarantee a minimum of security for Afghan journalists is at stake in this case. We urge him to intercede to obtain Mujadadi’s release.NDS spokesman Saeed Ansari told Reporters Without Borders that the NDS has the right to detain “any suspect in a terrorism case for an indefinite period.” After confirming that Mujadadi’s case had been sent to the prosecutor, he promised Reporters Without Borders to reexamine the case file to see if there was any possibility of Mujadadi being released quickly.Since his arrest on the day of the most recent parliamentary elections on 18 September, Mujadadi’s case has been marked by serious irregularities and barefaced lies by certain officials. Reporters Without Borders discovered that his arrest was carried at former Kapisa governor Ghulam Ghawis Abubaker’s request, with the help of two of his sons-in-law, the parliamentarian Mohammad Eghbal Safi and the NDS representative in Kapisa province, Khajeh Zafar.The NDS recently claimed that a suspect from Kandahar who is also being held by the security services had accused Mujadadi of being an accomplice of insurgent groups.

€1.5 million to be approved for Rathkeale

She worked as a staff journalist with the Irish Press and Evening Press before moving to Clare. She has worked as a freelance for all of the national newspaper titles and a staff journalist in Limerick, helping to launch the Limerick edition of The Evening Echo. Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live The European Commission has proposed to provide Ireland with €1.5 million from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to help 138 former workers of the jewellery firm Andersen Ireland Limited to find new jobs.The money would also help 138 young people not in employment, education or training (NEETs) to find job opportunities, a possibility offered by the new EGF Regulation. The proposal now goes to the European Parliament and the EU’s Council of Ministers for approval.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The redundancies in the Rathkeale had a significant adverse impact on the local and regional economy. Andersen Ireland was a major employer in this mainly rural area, where it had been active for 37 years.EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion László Andor commented: “The manufacture of fashion jewellery in the EU has suffered from increased competition from countries outside the EU, particularly China. Today’s proposal would help to prepare 138 redundant workers in this sector for new jobs, and an equal number of young people for finding their way into the labour market”.Ireland applied for support from the EGF following the dismissal of 171 workers in Andersen Ireland Limited, as a result of increased competition from fashion jewellery manufacturers elsewhere in the world.The measures co-financed by the EGF would help the 138 workers facing the greatest difficulties and an equal number of NEETs to find jobs. They will receive occupational guidance and career planning assistance, enterprise and self-employment supports, training, second and third level education programmes, training grants and income supports.The total estimated cost of the package is €2.5 million, of which the EGF would provide €1.5 million.In June 2009, the EGF rules were revised to strengthen the role of the EGF as an early intervention instrument forming part of Europe’s response to the financial and economic crisis. The revised EGF Regulation entered into force on 2 July 2009 and the crisis criterion applied to all applications received from 1 May 2009 to 30 December 2011.The Fund continues during the 2014-2020 period as an expression of EU solidarity, with further improvements to its functioning. Its scope has been expanded to include workers made redundant because of the economic crisis, as well as fixed-term workers, the self-employed, and, by way of derogation until the end of 2017, young people not in employment, education or training in regions eligible under the Youth Employment Initiative (YEI), which is the case in Ireland.

Tripura Sundari Devi is applicable to the present case and dismissed the petition.Case Background After securing admission in the respondent-institute for pursuing Masters course in Human Resource Development and paying fees in excess of Rs.3 lakh sometime in October, 2020, the petitioner was informed by the institute through email dated November 5, 2020 of her ineligibility to take admission. The reason assigned was that she had not secured 55% marks at the Higher Secondary level examination. She was, accordingly, requested to mail her account details for refund of the fees collected. This communication has been challenged by the petitioner.According to the petitioner, she did not misrepresent any facts nor could she be accused of practicing fraud. Having successfully crossed the various hurdles on the way for securing admission, the institute granted the petitioner admission only at a later stage to deprive her of the fruits of her labour on the ground that she had not secured 55% at the Higher Secondary level examination, the plea states.OrderAppearing on behalf of the petitioner student, Advocate Dhruti Kapadia contended that she is the only one who qualified for and was granted admission in the reserved seat. While referring to the decision of the Delhi High Court in the case of Javed Akhtar vs. Jamia Hamdard, she submitted that the decision of the institute to revoke the petitioner’s admission at this stage would work out serious prejudice in her academic pursuit and there being absolutely no fault on her part, the impugned communication ought to be quashed with further direction on the institute to permit her pursue the course without interruption. Court observed-“We find no reason to call upon the respondents to answer. Law is well settled by the Supreme Court in the case of District Collector and Chairman vs. M. Tripura Sundari Devi, that when an advertisement mentions a particular qualification and an appointment is made in disregard of the same, it is not a matter only between the appointing authority and the appointee concerned; the aggrieved are all those who had similar or even better qualifications than the appointee or appointees but who had not applied for the post because they did not possess the qualifications mentioned in the advertisement. It amounts to a fraud on the public to appoint persons with inferior qualifications in such circumstances, unless it is clearly stated in the advertisement that the qualifications are relaxable. No Court should be a party to the perpetuation of the fraudulent practice.”The bench pointed out that in the present case, not appointment but the question of admission to a course is involved. Court said that the principles laid down by the Supreme Court in Tripura Sundari Devi (supra) are clearly applicable in the present case. The bench observed-“Despite being well aware of the marks obtained by her at the Higher Secondary level examination, i.e., 51%, the petitioner took a chance of admission. Fortune smiled on her, because the institute at the initial stage did not exercise diligence by scrutinizing the papers and allowed the petitioner not only to participate in the various stages prior to admission but also allowed her admission in the course and received the fees therefor. Thereafter, on deeper scrutiny, the institute ultimately came to the finding that the petitioner did not possess the required percentage of marks at the Higher Secondary level examination leading to issuance of the communication.”Thus, the Court said that having regard to the guidance provided by the Supreme Court in Tripura Sundari Devi (supra), it cannot be a party to the fraudulent practice and allow the petitioner to continue with her studies in the course. Thus, dismissing the petition, the bench noted-“One does not know for sure, there could have been other reserved category candidates who might have secured more marks than the petitioner but less than the required marks and thus refrained from applying for admission, adhering to the terms of the notice issued by the institute. Any order directing the institute to allow the petitioner to pursue the course would amount to injustice being meted out to all such candidates.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more
