Security workers win union at Amazon

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Local 6 of the Service Employees Union (SEIU), after years of organizing at Amazon’s security contractor, Security Industry Specialists, has forced the mammoth retailer to dump the anti-union company.SEIU gained union representation and a contract under a new security contractor for around 1,000 security workers. SIS had kept anti-union, racist control over the workers since 2012.The union has long persisted in organizing, helping the workers at Amazon carry out a number of demonstrations. SEIU protests were held on May 22 at Amazon’s annual stockholders’ meeting and again at the May Day March for Worker and Immigrant Rights, which also rallied at Amazon. These two actions contributed to forcing the world retail juggernaut to cave and dump its partner, SIS. Amazon’s wealth includes nearly 40 corporate towers in the area of downtown Seattle.The Rev. Jesse Jackson has been among those calling for Amazon to switch to a union contractor. SIS has also come under fire for mistreating its Muslim workers, interfering with their right to hold prayer breaks.SIS is preparing to lay off 1,066 workers as part of the process in which the workers will supposedly be rehired by the new contractor, Allied Universal. Another union contractor, Securitas, will handle Amazon security in other North American cities.SEIU Director of External Organizing Eric Ramirez said both Allied Universal and Securitas are signatories to the union master agreement, which includes annual raises, health benefits with an employer contribution to premiums, scheduling protections, bereavement leave, vacation pay and a union grievance process.last_img read more

Ban lifted on the privately-owned channel Sindh TV

first_img Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire News Organisation News Help by sharing this information November 27, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ban lifted on the privately-owned channel Sindh TV PakistanAsia – Pacific to go further Reporters Without Borders has welcomed the lifting of a ban on the privately-owned channel Sindh TV. The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) on 24 November authorised Pakistani cable and satellite operators to resume putting out its broadcasts. A spokesperson at the television channel confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that broadcasts started again on Pakistani territory from midday on 25 November. The ban had been imposed on 8 November.——————————–09.11.06Regulator suspends Sindh TV, while correspondent gets death threatsReporters Without Borders called on the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) to immediately rescind the orders it gave today to cable TV operators to stop retransmitting Sindh TV, the second most popular station in the southern province of Sindh. The organisation also voiced concern about threats against one of its correspondents, Pervaiz Narejo.“The PEMRA is not helping press freedom by suspending a privately-owned TV station without giving any reasons,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities should avoid any meddling in the development of Pakistan’s broadcast media. At the same time, Narejo should get special protection, and the police and judicial authorities should step in and arrest those responsible for threatening him.”Headquartered in Bangkok, Sindh TV has been broadcasting by satellite and cable since October 2004 and is accessible to viewers both outside and inside Pakistan. The public television station PTV is the only terrestrial channel.Sindh TV news director Razzaque Sirohi said he did not know why the PEMRA ordered cable operators to stop distributing it. “What is the reason?” he said. “We have not committed any irregularity and yet, from one day to the next, we are suspended, without any explanation from the authorities. The PEMRA is acting like the policeman of the broadcasting sector.”Various sources said the suspension could be linked to Sindh TV’s coverage of honour murders, the Dargai suicide bombing, or the situation in Baluchistan. Sindh TV Executive director Karim Rajpur told the press the order had come from Islamabad.The station recently broadcast footage that was compromising for a pro-government politician. Filmed by Narvejo, Sindh TV’s correspondent in the town of Dadu, it showed an influential member of the MNA (a pro-government party) hitting a policeman. The policeman was killed a few minutes later, possibly on the politician’s orders. After the footage was screened, Narejo and his family received death threats and he was forced to flee to Karachi.This is not the first time that a TV station has been suspended by the PEMRA or by local authorities. The Punjab police stopped cable operators from broadcasting ARY TV in September after it screened footage of police brutality.

A locally preferred alignment will be selected after the public’s input from today’s public meeting. Reeves County will host a public meeting about a proposed truck relief route Thursday. The public meeting is scheduled from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Odessa College’s Pecos Center, located at 1000 S. Eddy Street in Pecos. The proposed Reeves County Truck Reliever Route will allow for an alternate route for intercity traffic to bypass the Pecos central business district. “Sustained energy exploration within the Permian and Delaware Basins has caused a dramatic traffic increase within the Town of Pecos City which is disrupting the local transportation system,” Reeves County Judge Leo Hung said in a press release. “Public Involvement is an important step in the progress of this project, so we invite all residents of Reeves County and any others who are interested in this project to join us and provide feedback to help the project team identify the locally preferred route for this project which will allow truck traffic to move more efficiently and improve quality of life for residents of the region.” The route would include a proposed loop bisector that aligns with Farm-to-Market Road 2119 on the north side of Pecos to State Highway 17 on the south side of town, the release detailed. The project is expected to consist of various roadway types ranging from a three-lane roadway to a four-lane divided roadway, the release stated. It’s expected to be designed and constructed in phases based on budget and need. Pinterestlast_img read more

Merton don heads Booker

first_imgA former drug and gambling addict has been awarded the prestigious Man Booker Prize by a committee chaired by Merton’s Professor of English, John Carey. DBC Pierre scooped arguably the most sought-after prize for English Literature with his first novel, Vernon God Little. The book, which describes a Texan high school massacre, was described by Carey as a “coruscating black comedy reflecting our alarm but also our fascination with America”. The judges voted four to one in favour of Pierre’s book. Carey insisted it was the quality of the novel rather than the author’s private life which captivated the judges. He commented, “The language is extremely vivid, most inventive, it’s extremely exciting and very funny”. DBC Pierre or ‘Dirty But Clean Peter’ is formerly known as Peter Finlay, but took on the pseudonym to hide his colourful past. He recently confessed to betraying his friends to fuel his drug and gambling addictions, running up huge debts in the process.ARCHIVE: 1st Week MT2003last_img read more

New Lights to Brighten 34th Street Gateway

first_imgLights hang now from temporary electric poles and cords and often burn out or don’t work. By MADDY VITALEWhen the trees along the 34th Street entryway into Ocean City shine with classic holiday lights, people agree it leaves a good impression.But when the lights burn out or are off in spots, the feeling while traveling into the city’s south end could be a bit lackluster.That is where City Councilman Bob Barr and residents in the Fourth Ward come in. Since taking office in 2016, Barr has worked with his constituents to ask for, and get, aesthetic improvements in the area that runs from the foot of the 34th Street bridge to West Avenue. The main one being year-round lights.The problem, however, is the infrastructure cannot sustain the lights year-round.“Sometimes the lights go out or just don’t operate. A new permanent infrastructure will allow the lights to be on year-round and the lights will be nicer, brighter, and energy efficient,” Barr said in a phone interview Saturday. City Council passed a resolution at Thursday’s meeting to go out to bid for the installation of electrical infrastructure to create the right system to keep the white lights on.Barr said he hopes the bidding process moves swiftly.“We have to see when we get the bids back. I’m hoping it moves as quickly as possible,” he said. “Everything will stay the same but nicer, brighter, permanent lights will replace the ones there now.”The LED lights will be illuminated year-round and will enhance the entryway, Barr pointed out.Year-round lights will replace holiday lights that burn out because the current infrastructure cannot sustain them.Mayor Jay Gillian addressed the issue in his weekly message posted Friday on the city’s website.“Council also approved a resolution to seek bids on bringing permanent electrical infrastructure to Roosevelt Boulevard at the 34th Street gateway to Ocean City,” Gillian said. “That will create reliable electrical service for the lights in the trees along the roadway. This started as a holiday display, but the decorations were popular enough the residents and guests have asked that they be lit year-round.”But the lights are only the first step in a long list of proposed upgrades to dramatically improve the area that visitors see first when they make their way over the 34th Street bridge into the south end of the city.Barr remarked about some of the items in the grass median strip lining the roadway.“We would like to see the clutter cleared up,” he said. “There are different signs for different things up there. The county puts out signs and there are other signs. I thought signs should be put up in a more thoughtful way. It is sort of haphazard right now.” Councilman Bob Barr looks out on traffic traveling on 34th Street in February 2018.last_img read more
