IBEW Local 3 on strike 18 months

first_imgUnionized workers turned out by the thousands for New York City’s Central Labor Council annual parade on Sept. 8. Because many city workers of Caribbean origin attend the annual Carnival parade in Brooklyn on the official U.S. Labor Day, NYC’s Labor Day is usually scheduled for the following Saturday.The CLC march advanced down Fifth Avenue past a tenacious stand of cable technicians who have been on strike against Spectrum/Charter since March 2017. The stalwart workers appealed to fellow members of the International Electrical Workers Local 3 and other marchers to buy and wear a T-shirt in support of the 18-month strike. Shirts were neon green, appropriate for safety on all construction sites.The workers’ fight against the greedy bosses now includes legal cases filed by state agencies detailing the company’s failure to deliver on internet access for all.

Market Provides Some Relief but Farmer Angst Continues

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Market Provides Some Relief but Farmer Angst Continues Home Indiana Agriculture News Market Provides Some Relief but Farmer Angst Continues Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Corn and soybean farmers throughout 2020 were braced for a very difficult year on the pricing of their crops, but the outlook has changed dramatically. Rallies in both markets can’t totally eliminate the stress farmers face, but Matt Bennett, Channel Grain Marketing consultant says it certainly is better right now.“It’s always going to be stressful, but the nice thing is when you talk to growers and you’ve gotten a $3 rally in the bean market and a dollar plus rally in the corn market, they tend to be in a little bit better mood than what they were previously,” Bennett said.There was a handful of years in a row where profit margins were challenging at the very least, then the events of 2020 began to unfold, complete with prospects mid-summer of huge crops.“You see what happened with the whole Covid situation and it pretty much decimated the energy markets which spilled over into you grains, and we all felt like 2020 was going to be the worst year we’ve had in quite some time. Then in August you see the production estimates were actually kind of bearish with pretty big production estimates. Then the derecho comes through and then fast forward three months and you go from a 2.75 billion bushel carryout in August that was projected, to a 1.7 right now. Back in January the USDA was projecting around a billion bushel carryout this marketing year for soybeans and right now it’s 190 (million.) Obviously we rallied for pretty good reasons.”Bennett’s advice now is that producers should focus on locking in profit and limiting risk.“One question I keep getting is if I’m going to sell beans at $12, what am I going to do to protect myself,” he explained to HAT. “What are you trying to protect yourself from? You’re selling beans at $12! Sometimes we just complicate our own situation, and yes, there is a lot of angst, and people are worried about making the most of this situation. I totally get that, and that’s why a limited risk approach is the best way to go. You step in and you sell some of the physical commodity and you put yourself in a position where you can still participate if it goes on up, but if it turns around and goes lower you don’t get strangled.”Hear more of his specifics here:Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

Call for protests against return to censorship

first_img June 1, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for protests against return to censorship Organisation June 2, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today announced its support for the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists’ plan to oppose a return to censorship after yesterday’s government announcement of new restrictions on press freedom, above all a ban on live broadcast coverage of outdoor events.”This arbitrary decision is a new stage in the move back to the sinister times of state censorship,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We hope that, with the support of the public and international community, the protests of Pakistan’s journalists will make the government back down. We were the first to hail the creation of privately-owned TV stations. But it is not by gagging them that President Pervez Musharraf will solve the current political crisis.”Information minister Mohammad Ali Durrani announced at a news conference yesterday that the federal government had decided to impose new restrictions on the media and warned them not to cross the “legal limits.” He said the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) would be in charge of ensuring that TV stations respect the ban on live coverage of outdoor events without prior permission.Clearly very irritated by the extensive live coverage of a recent seminar in which the deposed supreme court president took part, Durrani said: “The armed forces of Pakistan have embraced martyrdom whenever the country faced any threat… We cannot, therefore, let the defenders of our frontiers be maligned and defamed.”At the same time that Durrani was giving his news conference, a military intelligence agency, the ISPR, issued a release to the media confirming the restrictions.Cable and satellite TV operators subsequently stopped carrying the privately-owned television stations ARY Digital and Aaj TV. ARY Digital representative Mohsin Raza told Reporters Without Borders that the government claimed to be unaware of this. “And when we call the cable operators, they tell us that it was the government that asked them to do this.”A representative of the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists told Reporters Without Borders that his union intended to call a one-day strike.Gen. Musharraf’s government has been confronted by an unprecedented wave of opposition since the supreme court president’s dismissal on 9 March. The privately-owned broadcast media have been giving extensive coverage to anti-government demonstrations by lawyers and others.

What’s the Plan for Fannie and Freddie?

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribe What’s the Plan for Fannie and Freddie? Share Save About Author: Seth Welborn A plan to return Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to private-shareholder ownership could be released as early as next month, The Wall Street Journal reports. The plan is expected to ensure the firms have adequate capital to absorb loan losses in a future housing slump, putting the GSEs on a sound footing before returning to private hands.According to WSJ, the plan was originally expected earlier this summer, but was delayed in part due to revisions from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Treasury. Sources state that privatizing Fannie and Freddie would likely take several years and would involve allowing the firms to retain earnings and raise tens of billions of dollars from investors. Reuters reported earlier this year that the U.S. Treasury is dealing with several other issues, putting the plan for the GSEs on hold for now. According to Federal Housing Finance Administration (FHFA) Director Mark Calabria, he hopes Fannie and Freddie will have exited, or will be ready to exit, conservatorship before his term ends in 2024. Calabria told Reuters that he is not operating toward a hard deadline.“That’s my time horizon,” he said. “I’m under no expectation to try to get all this done. … So if in four years, nine months they’re not out of conservatorship, I’m not pushing them out.”Calabria stated that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is currently “juggling a number of balls,” while Craig Phillips, Mnuchin’s adviser who had been closely involved in the reform plan, also left in June.Additionally, Calabria stated that the Treasury will back some form of government guarantee for Fannie and Freddie in the report, and notes that the government does not have forever to overhaul them and needs to progress while the housing market remains stable.“The market looks pretty strong now, so that to me is the time when we want to make real repairs,” he said.

DTI reveals anti-ageism law plans

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. DTI reveals anti-ageism law plansOn 1 Jul 2003 in Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Personnel Today The Government has announced its intention to allow employers to keepmandatory retirement ages if they can justify them as necessary for thebusiness. It is also considering setting a default age of 70 after which employerscould ask employees to retire without having to justify their decision. The proposals are set out in the consultation paper Equality and Diversity:Age Matters, released earlier this month. Employers would have to justify their retirement age requirements byreference to “specific aims set out in legislation”, and will have toprovide supporting evidence if challenged, for instance, at an employmenttribunal. The consultation paper gives examples of the sort of specific aims that mayjustify treating people differently on the grounds of age. They are: – Health, welfare and safety – Facilitation of employment planning (for example, where a business has anumber of people approaching retirement age at the same time) – Particular training requirements of the post, for example air trafficcontrollers who need good health, fitness and concentration – Encouraging and rewarding loyalty – The need for a reasonable period of employment before retirement. Consultation closes on 20 October. The DTI intends to give employers twoyears to prepare for the legislation, which needs to be in place by the end of2006. last_img read more

What a drain! Explosive start to the day for a home-working Savills agent

first_imgA Savills estate agent working from home got more than he bargained when his family decided to use the unexpected extra time together to sort out their gutters.Charlie Bubear, who heads up the Savills Chelsea office, was watching his wife Alice and children clearing out the drains when they noticed a rusty orb nestled in the rafters.Bubear extracted the piece of metal and laid it on a fence post to photograph (pictured), remarking that it looked somewhat like a hand grenade.After alerting local police via text with a photograph of the grenade, the family were then told to evacuate the area and the Navy’s bomb squad team soon arrived.“I also texted the photograph to my neighbour, who is the TV historian Dan Snow, and he confirmed that it was indeed a WWI grenade,” says Bubear.“He said a lot of soldiers came back from the war with keepsakes and that’s probably what this grenade is.”The bomb squad then took the munition to a beach near to Beaulieu where the Bubear family live, and Charlie says the detonation could be heard for miles around.Finding a live hand grenade in your roof doesn’t happen every day and the family’s adventure has been covered by TV and radio crews as well, much to their amusement.“In the current lock-down many of us will likely be getting around to all those cleaning and DIY jobs people love to put off,” says Charlie.“Luckily for us the local police were great at resolving the situation so that no harm came about – it does however make you think twice about what you might find when giving your home a good spring clean.”Read more about working from home.  charlie bubear Royal Navy Bomb Disposal Savills April 9, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
