Verizon strikers stay strong as solidarity grows

Posted on by

first_imgSince April 13, 40,000 workers, represented by the Communication Workers and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, have been on strike against Verizon in Washington, D.C., and nine East Coast states from Massachusetts to Virginia. There are many issues of contention, such as company plans to freeze pensions, reduce health benefits, eliminate jobs including through outsourcing and offshoring, and force workers to relocate away from their families.On April 28, at the company’s invitation, the two unions returned to the bargaining table. The next day IBEW Local 2222, which represents Boston landline workers, criticized the company’s latest offer, and said, “Calling it the ‘last, best and final’ is just a tired way of trying to intimidate our members into accepting a contract that we can’t live with.”The two unions, which represent workers doing similar work in different parts of the country, bargain jointly with the various phone companies. Both turned down Verizon’s proposal flat-out and made a counter-offer. “Veri-greedy” refused to consider the unions’ proposals. Now workers are hunkering down to fight it out as long as it takes to win contract justice. Very few union members have crossed the picket lines.Verizon aims to have the public and rank-and-file workers believe that the most recent offer contains significant improvements. The company that cries poverty about paying for health care managed to come up with the funds for full-page ads in newspapers up and down the East Coast. Executives sent individual letters to workers trying to get them to agree to the company’s offer. They were sent via non-union FedEx rather than UPS or U.S. mail. Verizon CEO Lowell McAdams has personally visited picket lines, including one in the Syracuse suburb of DeWitt, N.Y., to try to win strikers to the company’s side.CWA District 2-13, representing strikers in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, D.C. and Virginia, has picked apart the company’s position point by point. (district2-13.cwa-union.org) Verizon offered another 1 percent in pay raises over the life of the contract, but the raise will be eaten up by bigger out-of-pocket health care costs. Workers will also face increased transportation costs in a new modification of “forced relocation,” a major sticking point. Under this plan, workers could be subjected to long and costly commutes, but would not have to live elsewhere.As a bribe, the company’s latest offer would withdraw the forced relocation language if workers ratify the rest of the giveback package by May 20.Verizon’s offer still has numerous rollbacks of union gains, including reductions in pensions, paid leave and disability benefits. Job security will be undermined by new “flexibility” language, the closing of call centers and outsourcing of more jobs overseas. (The company already offshores 5,000 jobs.) Injured workers could have more trouble collecting workers’ compensation.Nevertheless, the fact that the company sweetened the pot a little is testament to the strike’s effectiveness. Polls are showing public opinion of Verizon service is falling, as untrained managers and hired strikebreakers are proving themselves incapable of maintaining service or making repairs in a safe or timely manner. Signs are appearing in café windows informing customers that no Wi-Fi is available. Doctors’ offices cannot make appointments due to lack of internet service. Poor service is driving customers away.Strikers’ morale strong, support building The company’s intransigence is meeting stiff resistance. Local 2222 erected bonfires to burn the company’s letters. CWA members in Virginia are marking the FedEx envelopes sent to them “return to sender” and adding additional messages, such as “Shame on you Veri-greedy” and “No scabs or fools live here.” The CWA and IBEW have filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board over the illegal bypassing of union negotiators to make an appeal directly to the workers, technically known as “direct dealing.”Support actions are taking place in states where there are no strikes. In Durham, N.C., members of United Electrical Workers Local 150 and Raise Up 15 picketed and leafleted outside a Verizon store in a shopping mall. They then took their protest inside the mall. Before they could reach the Verizon store, they were escorted out by security guards, but continued to chant on the way out. Black Workers for Justice is planning a solidarity action in Raleigh, N.C.Union solidarity is expanding, with the latest support coming from the National Football League Players Association. “The NFLPA stands in solidarity with these striking workers who are seeking a fair and just contract for themselves and their families,” stated DeMaurice Smith, NFLPA executive director, in a letter to the two striking unions written on NFL Draft Day. Verizon makes phone apps available to customers that allow them to watch NFL games on their phones. (Philadelphia Inquirer, April 29)Strike leaders are reaching out to the public, effectively articulating the issues and demonstrating their resolve. Local 2222 Chief Steward Matt Lyons, speaking to a conference on “Socialism in the 21st Century,” said,  “I’ve been there 29 years; this is my fourth strike. My business manager, Myles Calvey, who is a rock star in the labor movement, this is his fifth strike. We’ve won them all so far.”    Dante Strobino and Steve Kirschbaum contributed to this report.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Iraq shuts down TV broadcaster after report on corruption

first_img News to go further Receive email alerts RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” September 4, 2019 Iraq shuts down TV broadcaster after report on corruption Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan The closure was ordered by Iraq’s Communications and Media Commission, which has called on Al Hurra to issue a public apology for its “contempt and abuse of symbols and personalities of religious institutions” and its “violation of the broadcast laws.” The commission added that the three-month suspension was “a final warning” and that even more severe sanctions could follow.Al Hurra issued a statement defending the report as “fair, balanced and professional” and claiming that “individuals and institutions were given the right of reply, which they declined.” Al Hurra was still prepared to give these institutions the opportunity to reply, the statement said.“This TV channel’s closure confirms the difficulty of investigative reporting on corruption in Iraq, especially when the country’s most prominent figures and institutions are directly implicated,” RSF’s Middle East desk said. “We urge the authorities to rescind this disproportionate sanction and to allow journalist to do their job to inform the public.”At least seven political movements had pressed for sanctions against Al Hurra. Hashd Al-Shaabi, a Shia paramilitary coalition, condemned “the increasingly aggressive rhetoric of several local and international TV channels,” especially “the Pentagon-linked Al Hurra channel.”The parliamentary coalition Hikma accused Al Hurra of “defaming” religious institutions, while former Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi deplored “any direct or indirect targeting” of religious institutions.Iraq is ranked 156th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

The editor of a satirical paper sentenced for making “insulting” comments about the pope

The court did not impose the ten-month suspended prison sentence urged by the prosecutor, but nevertheless imposed a heavy fine. RSF_en Organisation PolandEurope – Central Asia News Poland’s new social media law puts freedom of expression at risk, RSF warns June 2, 2021 Find out more With firing of four editors, “repolonisation” under way in Poland News Follow the news on Poland Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Help by sharing this information A Warsaw court ordered Jerzy Urban, editor of satirical newspaper Nie to pay a fine equivalent to 5,000 euros on 25 January 2005, after he was convicted of insulting Pope Jean-Paul II as a “foreign head of state” under Article 136.3 of the Polish criminal code. The prosecutor‚s call for a ten-month suspended prison sentence was dropped but the harsh fine, just for a satirical article, sets a dangerous legal precedent for free expression in Poland.———————————————————-Prosecutor requests suspended prison sentence for “offensive” editorial about pope 19 january 2005The prosecution in Poland of satirical newspaper editor Jerzy Urban for an editorial about Pope John Paul II could set “a dangerous precedent for a European Union member state,” Reporters Without Borders warned today.A Warsaw prosecutor on 14 January requested a 10-month suspended prison sentence and a fine equivalent to 5,000 euros for Urban, the editor of the newspaper Nie, because of an editorial published on 15 August 2002 deemed “offensive” to the pope.”We know perfectly well that it is still completely taboo to criticise Pope John Paul II in Poland, but that must not prevent the authorities from conforming to the laws regulating press freedom in Europe, including article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights concerning free expression,” Reporters Without Borders said.Published on eve of a papal visit to Poland, the article was headlined “The walking sado-masochist.” It described the pope as the “Vatican’s Brezhnev,” in reference to the continuation of his reign despite declining health, and as an “impotent old man” offering a “spectacle of horror” to the public.The prosecutor’s office said Urban “crossed the legal limits of free speech and journalistic ethical norms by using expressions offending and mocking the pope with the aim of slandering and humiliating.” Under article 136.3 of the Polish penal code, Urban could get three years in prison for “publicly insulting a foreign head of state.”A verdict and sentencing is due on 25 January. If the prosecutor’s request is upheld and Urban gets a suspended prison sentence of 10 months or less, this will constitute a violation of free expression and a threat to the safeguarding of diversity of opinion in Poland. Urban has provocatively said he hopes to be sent to prison because this would prove “the existence of pro-church censorship” in Poland.

Ovens move as Interbake buys IBE

Posted on by

first_imgProduction of Thomas Collins Vectair Ovens has moved to Lancashire, following Interbake’s acquisition of Independent Bakery Equipment (IBE).Interbake director David Dunne told British Baker that he decided to buy the Bristol-based company, which has a history dating back to the 1890s, because its ovens are energy- efficient and well-suited to baking pies and pastries – a sector of the market that is currently buoyant.”We have been the agent for IBE in the north for many years and its ovens have an excellent reputation for reliability and longevity,” he added.The range of Vectair ovens can be fuelled by either gas or electricity and can accommodate nine, 12 or 18 standard 30″ x 18″ tray capacity.Interbake will manufacture the ovens at its plant in Ramsbottom, as well as supplying spare parts and service support.IBE was previously run by Ken Palmer, who joined the business in 1948, aged 22, following his demob from the Grenadier Guards. As part of the deal, he has passed on company literature, such as brochures and work contracts dating back over 100 years, to Interbake.last_img read more
