Philly airport workers strike two hours – threaten strike during DNC

first_imgOver 600 workers and their supporters took over three of the four lanes of the departures roadway at the Philadelphia International Airport for two hours on July 19 as they walked from the A Terminal to the F Terminal.Marching behind a huge banner that read, “Respect Black Workers,” they demonstrated what might happen if up to 2,000 airport workers go out on strike during the Democratic Party Convention July 25-28.Service Employees Local 32BJ, which organized the midday disruption, bused in members from Virginia, Connecticut, Pittsburgh and New York to support the Philly workers, who include wheelchair attendants, skycaps, aircraft cabin cleaners and bag handlers.Many of those jobs used to be unionized, but the airlines have outsourced these positions over the last 30 years to Prospect, PrimeFlight, McGinn Security and other nonunion subcontractors.A large majority of the protesters were Black and Brown workers. They demand a $15-an-hour minimum wage, affordable health care, vacation days, better scheduling and the right to a union. Many women workers participated, leading chants, holding up the lead banner and giving speeches.An earlier campaign that included four short strikes, numerous rallies and even taking over City Hall won workers an increase from $7.25 to $12.00 an hour, effective July 1, 2015. Now, the workers are demanding a minimum of $15 an hour, a union and respect.SEIU’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton for president hasn’t stopped the union from threatening to cause a major disruption during the DNC Convention.In addition to airport workers, taxi, limo and Uber Black drivers have also threatened to strike during the DNC.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Incredulity at British refusal to help investigate disappearance of two ITN crew members

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders today voiced its shock at British defence minister Geoff Hoon’s refusal to open an investigation into the disappearance to two ITN crew members in southern Iraq until ITN proves a war crime was committed. The US authorities announced they were investigating the case on 28 April.”Geoff Hoon’s refusal is absolutely incredible,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “The British army controls the city of Basra and southern Iraq. Only its full cooperation in the enquiry already opened by the US military authorities will enable us to find out what happened to the two missing journalists and to establish the facts,” he said.Ménard added: “In what country would you see policemen tell victims that they will only open an investigation when the facts are already established and the evidence has been produced that there was a crime? On the contrary, it is the British army’s duty to help discover the truth.”Stewart Purvis, the director general of the London-based Independent Television News (ITN) reported at a press conference in London yesterday that Hoon refused to open an enquiry until ITN produced evidence that a war crime was committed.French cameraman Fred Nerac and Lebanese interpreter Hussein Othman have been missing since the four-member ITN crew they were working with came under fire on 22 March near Basra during fighting between Iraqi forces and US marines. The other two members of the team were British reporter Terry Lloyd, 51, who was killed in the incident, and Belgian cameraman Daniel Demoustier, who was wounded.ITN and Nerac’s wife Fabienne Nerac are calling for a “full and transparent” investigation by the British military police into the circumstances of the incident.

On December 9, the News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA) issued awarning in an order against the news channels Zee News, Zee 24 Taas, Zee Hindustani, TimesNow, India Today, AajTak, India TV, News Nation and ABP News finding them to be at fault for publishing vilifying reports against Singh in stories linking Bollywood actors to the drug mafia. The three channels of Zee Network were also asked to air a public apology for their reports against Singh. Sr. Adv. Aman Hingorani appearing for Singh today sought and was granted leave of the court to implead other news channels as well in the matter. The single judge bench of Justice Navin Chawla hearing the matter has given Singh 2 weeks’ time to file her response to the Centre’s status report. Hingorani referred to the Cable Television Network Rules and the NBSA’s order and submitted that it was ultimately upon the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to take action, however they had passed the buck to the NBSA. He therefore sought to know from the Ministry as to what action was taken by it on Rakul’s case. Upon this, Justice Chawla asked the Centre, “Why don’t you tell us what action you’ve taken?”The NBSA in its order had directed all channels to immediately remove the offensive videos, if still available on their websites or YouTube or other links, and to report the same to the authority within 7 days.The reports were run by the channels in the context of the reporting of the Sushant Singh Rajput case. The channels claimed that Rhea Chakraborty gave a statement to the Narcotics Control Bureau that Rakul Preet Singh was involved in drugs. However, the authority found that most of these channels omitted to report the retraction statement of Rhea Chakraborty whereby she denied making any such disclosure to the NCB.Earlier, Rakul Preet Singh had approached the Delhi High Court seeking action against the channels under the Program Code framed under the Cable TV Networks(Regulation) Act.In September, the High Court, after observing that the media should exercise restraint, passed an interim order directing the NBSA to pass orders on the actor’s complaints against the reports.Following that, the NBSA, headed by former Supreme Court judge Justice A K Sikri, passed the directions.Next Storylast_img read more

Lawyers seek to get charge dropped against Alabama woman who lost fetus after being shot

first_imgKuzma/iStock(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.) — Attorneys for an Alabama woman facing a manslaughter count in the miscarriage of her fetus that resulted from being shot during a fight filed court papers seeking to get the charge tossed, calling the indictment “completely unreasonable and unjust.”Lawyers for Marshae Jones, 27, filed the motion Monday in Jefferson County Circuit Court.“Using flawed and twisted rationale, the State of Alabama has charged a new theory of criminal liability that does not lawfully exist,” according to legal papers filed on Jones’ behalf. “The State charges Ms. Jones with intending to cause the death of her unborn child by allegedly ‘initiating a fight.’ The State’s theory ignores the law and ignores reason.”Jones was five months pregnant when she was shot during a fight in December outside a Dollar General store in the Birmingham suburb of Pleasant Grove.The woman who allegedly shot Jones, Ebony Jemison, 23, was initially charged with manslaughter, but a grand jury declined to indict her after determining she shot Jones in self-defense, prosecutors said. The same grand jury indicted Jones on one count of manslaughter.The grand jury’s decision caused a firestorm and came after Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed into law a ban on most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, without exceptions for rape or incest. The only exception made under the law applies to situations where the life of the mother is endangered by her pregnancy.The law immediately prompted a legal challenge and has not taken effect.Prosecutors insisted that “the new law played no role in the consideration of the Grand Jury” in Jones’ case.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Unions push DTI into probing job exports

first_img Comments are closed. TheDTI has launched a major investigation into the offshoring of British workafter trade union pressure and the exodus of thousands of UK jobs overseas.Lastweek, secretary of state for trade and industry Patricia Hewitt hosted around-table event for around 50 interested parties, including unions, companiesthat have offshored, organisations that have chosen not to offshore, businessgroups and academics.Delegatesat the event are not revealing details of the discussion, but the DTI haspromised to produce a report by early April on outsourcing and the possiblethreat that it could pose to the British economy.However,despite the investigation, a move towards banning outsourcing altogether seemshighly unlikely. Speakingon the world trade panel of the CBI annual conference in November last year,Hewitt warned unions that the Government cannot use legislation to prevent UKjobs from going overseas.”Wemust resist protectionism. It is easy to see the short-term benefits because ofUK jobs and competitiveness, but we must take a long-term view,” Hewitttold delegates.Unionshave announced that they will conduct a separate investigation into the issue.Many of their arguments are bolstered by research that suggests outsourcingdoes not boost company profitability.BenWillmott, employee relations adviser at the Chartered Institute of Personneland Development, said employers should think carefully from a businessperspective about outsourcing their operations overseas.”Somefirms are already bringing back parts of their offshored business because ofconcerns about language and technical expertise,” he said.”Ifyou focus solely on cost reduction, you will put the employer brand andcustomer service at risk.”AnthonyThompson, head of employee resourcing at the CBI, said: “In today’s globaleconomy these trends are inevitable. We should not lose sight of the fact thatthe numbers are still very low across the economy as a whole. The benefits ofoutsourcing outweigh the negatives.”Youcan’t stop this through legislation and to do so would becounter-productive,” he said. “Offshoring is about protectingcompetitiveness.”ByQuentin Reade Related posts:No related photos.

The structure and function of the tarsus I sensillar field in mites of the genusHalarachne(Halarachnidae: Gamasida)

first_imgThe sensillar field on tarsus I of Halarachne (Halarachnidae: Gamasida), a respiratory tract endoparasite of seals (Pinnipedia) is associated with 12 hair- or peg-like receptor sensilla in the larva and 13 or 14 in the adult. These include thermo-hygroreceptors, each with a double wall traversed by 3 or 4 slit-like pores (dw/WP-sensilla), olfactory chemoreceptors of small inorganic molecules, each with a single wall spanned by several small and simple pores (sw/WP-sensilla), gustatory chemoreceptors with a single terminal pore (TP-sensilla), and aporous NP-sensilla which have thermoreceptive and/or other unknown functions. Some sensilla are sessile and others socketed, the latter having a possible additional/alternative mechanoreceptive function. One mechanoreceptor is a probable trichobothrium-like vibration receptor which has not been previously described in the Anactinotrichida. This range of sensilla combined with the absence of sw/WP-sensilla, i.e. olfactory chemoreceptors covered with numerous, large centrally-plugged pores, suggests that although Halarachne spp. can locate large endothermic animals, they lack the ability to discriminate between different species.last_img read more

New twist in Lamplugh case: did she ever meet Mr Kipper?

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » New twist in Lamplugh case: did she ever meet Mr Kipper? previous nextAgencies & PeopleNew twist in Lamplugh case: did she ever meet Mr Kipper?Detective involved in case believes investigation has been going in wrong direction and that Mr Kipper was ‘made up’.Nigel Lewis24th June 201905,968 Views The case of murdered estate agent Suzy Lamplugh has taken another dramatic twist after a detective involved in the investigation claimed she never met Mr Kipper for a property viewing, as has always been claimed.Lamplugh went missing in 1986 and is presumed to have been murdered after meeting up with a client in Fulham, London, who she named as Mr Kipper but who police recently said they strongly suspected was convicted rapist and killer John Cannan.But former Scotland Yard detective David Vicette told The Telegraph over the weekend that he believes Lamplugh invented the appointment and instead went off to attend a personal meeting.Mr KipperVidecette has interviewed dozens of witnesses and key figures in the original case during his 20 years in the force and claims the police ‘fixation’ with Mr Kipper means previous investigations have missed vital evidence.“I began looking at this case three years ago as part of some work I was doing on serial killers. It was clear that the accepted narrative was that Suzy had met her fate after meeting Mr Kipper at the Shorrolds Road address,” he told the newspaper.He says that by 2012 the police was entirely focussed on Mr Kipper being John Cannan but that the more he looked at the case, the more convinced he became that ‘something vital had been missed’.“It is my firm view that Suzy put the Mr Kipper entry in her diary because she had to nip out to meet somebody else and she wasn’t supposed to leave the office unattended,” he says.Read more about the case.Suzy Lamplugh June 24, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
