  • Union to seek court action over severance denial

    first_imgFollowing months of demonstrations, the matter regarding the non-payment of severance packages to hundreds of sugar workers attached to the Wales Sugar Estate may finally be soon resolved.On Sunday, Guyana Times was informed that the workers, through their representative union, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), would soon seek redress through the courts.In addition to the Ministry of the Presidency, sugar workers protested Thursday’s sitting of the National AssemblyThis newspaper was told that in the last few days, preparatory steps were undertaken for litigation to be filed in the High Court. It is believed that action will be filed some time this week.Workers who were interviewed over the weekend informed Guyana Times that while they remain without their payments, they would continue to protest outside the Estate. Reports suggest that there will be follow-up protest actions in the coming week.It was revealed in February that the Union was considering taking legal action against the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo). It is believed that some 375 workers remain without their severance packages, but the Agriculture Ministry contended that all workers who requested severance were already paid. This disclosure was deemed “misleading” by GAWU. Moreover, workers have repeatedly noted that the Ministry’s contention was indeed “misleading”.The workers’ contention is that they cannot be compelled to travel to the Uitvlugt Estate on the West Coast of Demerara, which is some 22 miles from Wales.On Thursday, sugar workers and their families protested outside the Ministry of the Presidency and Parliament Building, calling for the President and Agriculture Minister to immediately address their concerns. Workers from the soon-to-be-closed-as-well Enmore Estate joined the protest against Government’s reported intention to close multiple estates.ConsequencesRelatives of the sugar workers were also present at last week’s protests and they told this publication of the challenges they have been facing since the estate ceased operations last year.“My husband working at Wales Sugar Estate and since last year, he is not working and I have five children to go to school, where I gone get this money from? We asking the President to intervene in our matter,” Salima Bacchus had noted.“We need we children to get education; the people must get work; right now, my husband is out of job, I out of job, I have a baby to look to milk, to get porridge stuff, everything,” another mother of four noted.GAWU President Komal Chand, who was also on the picket line, described Agriculture Minister Noel Holder’s handling of the sector as “heartless”, and noted that the workers were becoming desperate. At a previous protest, the workers had told this newspaper that they were finding it difficult to get consistent employment and as such, were struggling to make ends meet. It was explained that their finances were declining, since they were unable to garner five-day-a-week jobs.“The family making out real rough; right now, money going down real low,” Festus Roberts had stated.Michael Chotoo, another protester, had told this publication that he was finding great difficulty sending his children, aged 15, 13 and nine, to school.At one of their many demonstrations, the workers had reminded that President David Granger and Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo had committed their support to the sugar industry in the run-up to the 2015 General and Regional Elections. However, when Government had confirmed the end of sugar operations at Wales Estate last year, it was explained that cost was the main factor for the entity’s closure. Government has also since expressed that only three sugar estates will remain operational in Guyana.One year ago, GAWU had filed action in the High Court regarding the non-consultations of unions over the severance and redeployment of workers attached to the Wales Sugar Estate. Some 100 workers then had been promised severance packages on March 22, 2016, but were only paid some months later. The Court had determined that the unions must be consulted before the workers could make their decisions on their future.last_img read more

  • Florida remains unbeaten, 69-57

    first_imgThe sophomore point guard finished 12 of 12 from the free throw line, made three 3-pointers and led Florida in scoring for the second consecutive game. This one was close until the Gators put together a 10-0 run midway through the second half, one that included seven points from Chris Richard. GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Taurean Green scored 21 points, Al Horford had 14 and No. 2 Florida remained unbeaten with a 69-57 victory over Auburn on Saturday. Green made six free throws over the final 5:25 to help the Gators (16-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) extend the best start and longest winning streak in school history. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • CMS, Pomona-Pitzer to renew their rivalry tonight

    first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card So much so that the contest between the Stags and the Sagehens is known to have NCAA Division I referees requesting to officiate the long-standing rivalry. Rich Kolan, who refs Big West and Pac-10 games, will lead tonight’s matchup, which stands to be as competitive as ever with both CMS and Pomona-Pitzer heading into the game 2-0 in Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference action. “In any year it makes for a great game,” said Sagehens coach Charles Katsiaficas, whose team is defending back-to-back conference titles. “You can throw records out the window because you know it’s going to be a heck of a game. In certain years, when both teams are competitive, it adds a little more to the game.” So far this year, both are competitive. The Sagehens (8-5, 2-0) have won five in a row and are led by Edward Wexler-Beron (16.8 points per game) and David Knowles (14.3 ppg). Pomona-Pitzer has also seen the return of last year’s SCIAC Player of the Year, Alexander Lloyd, from knee surgery. Lloyd (8.7 ppg), who has played in just three games, didn’t see any action in a victory over Caltech on Saturday because his injury flared up, but Katsiaficas is optimistic he’ll participate tonight. The Stags (8-5, 2-0) have won four of their last five games, with three of those victories coming in overtime. The latest saw CMS outlast Whittier College on Saturday, on the legs of 18 points from Emanuel Maceira. Rivalries up the ante in any sport. But the one that Claremont-Mudd-Scripps and Pomona-Pitzer share – two athletic programs spread over five college campuses in a close-knit community – rivals just about any matchup you’ll find on any basketball court in Southern California. Maceira leads the Stags with 14.6 points a game, while John Parsons (14.3 ppg) and Miles Taylor (13.2) are both scoring in double figures. “We’re only two games into the season, and it’s truly all about the conference,” said Scalmanini, who split last year with Pomona-Pitzer. “We have a big one (today), and we’re getting better still.” ON THE MOVE The Chaffey men’s basketball team (19-4) improved to 4-0 in the Foothill Conference with two wins last week that helped the Panthers jump from No. 17 in the state poll to No. 6. Four days after dropping No. 16 Mt. Jan Jacinto (15-8, 3-1), Chaffey raced to a 102-100 win over No. 19 San Bernardino Valley (14-9, 2-2), the favorite to win the conference this year. Then the Panthers dropped perennial conference power Antelope Valley (9-12, 2-2) in a 95-85 comeback win. Chaffey will host Victor Valley (8-13, 2-2) tonight at 7. At Mt. SAC, the women’s basketball team (23-1) dropped No. 2 Pasadena (16-3) by way of a 63-59 win on Friday. The victory still wasn’t good enough to vault the Mounties past No. 1 San Joaquin Delta (21-4), which lost to Mt. SAC earlier this season. The Mounties will play at East Los Angeles (7-14) today at 5:30 p.m. BRONCOS HONORED December proved an up-and-down month for both the men (8-5, 4-2 in California Collegiate Athletic Association) and the women (6-7, 3-3) at Cal Poly Pomona. Two of the steadier players in both programs were honored by the Broncos this week with athlete-of-the-month nods Senior Jonathan Boyd (Etiwanda High) led the men with 12.3 points per game in December. He is currently second on the team with 12.3 points per game, a number boosted by the career-best 31 points he turned in during Cal Poly’s 99-76 win over Cal State Stanislaus on Saturday. Sophomore Ashley Moody, the women’s leader with 12.4 points per game, averaged 12 points a game in December. She injured her knee in a game against Cal State Bakersfield on Jan. 7 and hasn’t played since. The Broncos could learn the results of an MRI taken Saturday as soon as today. Either way, coach Paul Thomas said she would not play this weekend, when Cal Poly plays at Cal State San Bernardino and UC San Diego. UP TO TASK Two former Upland High School basketball stars enjoyed some success in recent weeks in their respective four-year programs. Sheldon Pace (Chaffey College) dished out 17 assists to set a record for No. 7 Southwest Baptist in a 95-78 win over No. 17 Central Missouri State. Pace leads SMU (16-1) with 14.2 points and 9.1 assists per game. SMU will play Missouri Western State (10-6) on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. At Whittier, senior Brandon Robinson earned tournament MVP honors at the Purple & Gold Poet Classic January 5-6 and was named the SCIAC’s Male Athlete of the Week. Robinson (7.8 points a game on the season) had 45 points and 28 rebounds, good for two double-doubles in three games. Whittier (6-7, 0-2) will play Occidental (11-1, 2-0) tonight at 7:30. HALL MOVES ON Julie Hall, who served as Cal Poly director of development for the athletic department until December, was named the assistant athletic director of development at UC Riverside. Hall, who was at Cal Poly for two years, will be responsible for leading a major gifts fund-raising program. Jeff Sanders’ local college package runs on Wednesday.

  • Top Garda tells court they do not take part in “turkey shoots’ of sports fans

    first_imgThe head of the Garda Traffic Corps in Donegal has said his officers are not taking part in “turkey shoots” to give out parking tickets to sports fans.Inspector Michael Harrison was speaking after a number of Finn Harps fans received parking fines at Letterkenny District Court. One solicitor claimed that his client had received a parking ticket on March 14th while numerous other cars around him had not.“My client came out and it was a bit like a turkey shoot, he had been ticketed but other cars around him had not,” claimed the solicitor.A number of other people also received parking tickets on the night on which Harps played Shamrock Rovers.However, Inspector Harrison said An Garda Siochana do not take part in “turkey shoots” and were merely responding to complaints by local residents.Indeed Inspector Harrison said he was a season-ticket holder at Finn Park and never had any trouble parking near the ground.“I want to put it out there that we do not go on turkey shoots and we don’t go out to county finals giving out tickets. We respond to complaints from residents.“On this occasion we received calls from residents at Navenney Street and Steeple View because cars were parked on the footpath,” he said.Judge Paul Kelly fined a number of fans €80 for illegally parking on the night.Among those fined on the day was a Finn Harps club official who was asked by Judge Kelly “Are you a Finn Harps supporter also?”, to which he responded he was!Top Garda tells court they do not take part in “turkey shoots’ of sports fans was last modified: January 11th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalFinn ParkInspector Michael Harrisonturkey shootlast_img read more

  • Customs and Revenue ramp up Donegal checkpoints, figures reveal

    first_imgRevenue checkpoints are on the rise in Donegal, with 90 taking place in the first three months of 2019.Donegal has had the highest number of checkpoints compared to any other region in Ireland so far this year.There were 57 checkpoint operations in Lough, the second highest region, between January and March. In the same period, 45 checkpoints were conducted in Cavan, Monaghan and Longford combined. There has been a steady increase in Revenue checkpoints in Donegal in recent years, with 141 operations in 2015 and 107 in 2016. The figure doubled in 2017 to 239 checkpoints and rose again to 287 in 2018.This data was released following a request from Sinead Stewart, Independent Candidate for South Inishowen.Ms Stewart said: “It’s in clear black and white now that Customs and Revenue are targeting ordinary Donegal people and in spite of having been found in breach of European Law, the trend looks to be increasing.“The European Court of Justice ruled two years ago that Ireland’s practice of charging the full amount of VRT up front – even if the vehicle was only being leased for a limited period of time – is in breach of EU law. “Instead of amending the practice as recommended by the ECJ, Customs and Revenue have doubled down on setting up checkpoints and charging the full rate of VRT in Donegal.”Ms Stewart has also criticised certain sitting county councillors for not taking a stance against VRT and for voting to legalise the use of gaming machines in the Inishowen and Letterkenny Municipal Districts.She said: “I find it very revealing that as soon as it was thought Revenue was hampering the profits of gaming establishments owners, establishments which harm the ordinary people of the peninsula, councillors jumped into action to save the wealthy gaming bosses’ profits with the argument that it was to ‘save jobs’, jobs which were never really at risk.“When we first set up the anti-VRT group, certain politicians appeared at the protests and meetings and professed their support. They haven’t mentioned it since then. Why is that?“Surely every politician’s job is to voice the concerns of the people they claim to represent.” Ms Stewart has stated she will continue to campaign against VRT at every opportunity, adding “I hope voters think very carefully in the coming local elections about decisions councillors have taken regarding addressing Revenue and slot machines vs their silence on Revenue and VRT.”Customs and Revenue ramp up Donegal checkpoints, figures reveal was last modified: April 29th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CHECKPOINTSCUSTOMSRevenuesinead stewartVRTlast_img read more

  • Datatec strengthens US presence

    first_img6 July 2011JSE-listed IT group Datatec says its subsidiary, Logicalis, has acquired Netarx, a provider of managed services, data centres and IT solutions to customers in the mid-west USA, for about US$34-million.The amount will be paid in a combination of cash and deferred Datatec shares in order to align management shareholders who will be assuming key positions in the Logicalis US organisation.“This acquisition builds on the already strong position held by Logicalis in the mid-west region, and will give Logicalis a dominant position within the Michigan solutions market,” Datatec CEO Jens Montanana said in a statement this week.Significant cross-selling opportunitiesBased in Detroit Michigan, Netarx is a Cisco Gold partner and has annualised revenues of approximately $60-million and more than 220 employees.The acquisition builds upon Logicalis’ existing strong mid-western presence by expanding its IT consulting and services business and enhancing Logicalis’ managed services capabilities through the addition of Netarx’s proven expertise in collaboration and data centre technologies.The acquisition also brings significant cross-selling opportunities, as there is little overlap between Logicalis’ existing customer base and Netarx’s offering in the Michigan area.“Both Logicalis and Netarx are Cisco Gold Partners so this acquisition also helps to strengthen this strategically important relationship,” said Montanana.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
