On the Picket Line: #MeTooMcDonalds, Amazon workers & more

first_img#MeTooMcDonald’s confronts U.S. CEOThe president of McDonald’s USA, Chris Kempsczinksi (worth $15.3 million as of February 2019), was a featured speaker at the annual Wall Street Journal Global Food Forum on Oct. 7. He and WSJ invitees were surprised when a determined group of survivors of McDonald’s workplace sexual harassment, all Black women, crashed the meeting. Calling themselves #MeTooMcDonald’s, the brave women demanded an end to “low pay, sexual harassment, violent attacks and attacks on union rights.” An Oct. 10 email about the protest was titled “We Demand to Meet With the President of McDonald’s USA.” And a video of the action with the same title was posted on the Facebook page of Fight for 15. Tanya Harrell, who has sued the mega-billion-dollar corporation demanding it do more to stop sexual assault on the job, said: “Black women are the backbone of our communities, but we experience more sexual harassment than anyone else in the workplace. After Monday’s action, I know that when we get together and demand justice, we’re a force to be reckoned with.” She added: “There will be no change for us, without us.” To sign a petition in solidarity with the workers, go to #MeTooMcDonalds.org. For those in the fast food industry who’ve been harassed or assaulted, here’s a number to call:  844-384-4495.Amazon night-shift strike in Eagan, Minn.On the night of Oct. 2 in Eagan, Minn., nearly 60 Amazon warehouse workers stood outside in the freezing rain in a 2 ½-hour work stoppage. The crew — mostly immigrant women of Somali descent — demanded better pay for the night shift, weight restrictions on boxes and reversal of a cap on the 30-hour weekly workload. The night shift workers often lift boxes up to 70 pounds, and rest breaks for workers’ 9-hour shift is a measly 15 minutes. Pay currently sits at around $16.25 an hour.The workers ended the strike after a manager stated that all truck deliveries were cancelled for the night and issues would be resolved in the morning. Strike organizer Kadijo Mohamed told the Oct. 3 Vice that the workers decided to strike because it was the only way to get their bosses’ attention. “The managers don’t listen,” she said. “They ignore complaints. Sometimes they say, ‘If you can’t handle this job, you can quit.’” The strike follows a righteous wave of Amazon worker actions across the country, but especially at the warehouse in Eagan, Minn. (See coverage in Aug. 23 WW.) Workers help save facility for mentally ill in San FranciscoResidents and staff were shocked Aug. 21 when without warning eviction notices from the San Francisco Department of Public Health were sent to all severely mentally ill residents at the Adult Residential Facility. Shutting it down set off citywide outrage and sparked a spontaneous protest the next day. Virtually overnight, residents, health advocates and workers, members of Service Employees Union (SEIU) Local 1021 and Technical Employees (IFPTE) Local 21, gathered over 1,200 signatures on a petition to stop the closure. They delivered it to the SF Health Commission’s Aug. 22 meeting after over 200 activists shut it down. Though the DPH initially refused to negotiate with the workers, who had been persistently grieving serious understaffing and cuts to programs, the new plan adopted on Oct. 15 helps both residents and workers by increasing staff and providing more comprehensive training needed to improve patient care. An SEIU 1021 press statement noted that a joint group of staff and management has been authorized for the first time to work on hiring and training, among other issues. Both unions claim this is a victory for patients and for San Francisco! (seiu1021.org)Contract victory for 20,000 northwest workersAfter a month of strong union boycotts against gender discrimination and months of negotiating, nearly 20,000 Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 555 members in Oregon and southwest Washington voted to approve collective bargaining agreements with workers at more than 90 Fred Meyer and Safeway grocery stores. Voting took place Oct. 4 -11. The new agreement runs three years and for the first time will guarantee 20 hours a week for workers who want it. (KXL.com, Oct. 12) It also includes a fought-for victory, pay equity for Schedule B workers, mostly women who called attention to gender pay disparity: lower pay in historically majority-women departments like deli and bakery. Apprentices, who now get 10 cents above minimum wage, will see a raise of $2 an hour. The first year’s contract will be retroactive, so workers will immediately see bigger checks.

Senate Votes to Avoid FSIS Furloughs

first_imgSource: NAFB News Service Senate Votes to Avoid FSIS Furloughs Home Indiana Agriculture News Senate Votes to Avoid FSIS Furloughs By Gary Truitt – Mar 20, 2013 SHARE The Senate approved legislation to fund the government through September 30th on a 73 to 26 vote Wednesday. The leadership of the House Appropriations Committee has said it will take the measure – without changes – to a final vote in the House to avert any threat of a government shutdown on March 27th. The measure does include an amendment to prevent furloughs of meat and poultry inspectors. The amendment was adopted by voice vote. The amendment – endorsed by Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack Tuesday – would transfer approximately 55-million dollars in existing USDA funds to FSIS in order to ensure food inspectors are not furloughed. Furloughs would force meat processing facilities to stop operating because federal law requires facilities to have inspectors on the production line in order to operate.The Senate’s continuing resolution also includes an amendment to prohibit the expenditure of federal funds to enforce the Environmental Protection Agency’s Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure rule against farmers.center_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleNew Herbicide Designed for Eastern Corn Belt CornNext articleDuPont Pioneer Expands in Two Indiana Counties Gary Truittlast_img read more

Justices Sonia Gokani and N. V. Anjaria were hearing the habeas plea by an Ahmedabad-based man, urging that his father, namely Shaikh Babu Shaikh @ Rahim Shaikh Vajir, aged 65 years, is missing since 10.12.2019. The bench commented that while the delinquent police personnel are not available to face the process of law, already initiated against them pursuant to the detailed directions issued by this court, there are “shocking details” emerging as to how for days and months, no clue is received of a missing person about whom inquiries were made incessantly. The Division Bench noticed that a month has passed since the FIR had come to be lodged upon several orders passed by the court, and that after the inquiry conducted at the ends of some officers, there appears to be no possibility of tracing the corpus, the whereabouts of the corpus not revealed till date. The Court, on Wednesday, remarked that “much time has already lapsed and more the time will go, there is a likelihood of the evidence to be destroyed”. The bench appreciated the fact that the Additional Police Commissioner, Vadodara City who had taken over the investigation in the matter, and who is also the complainant in the instant case, has agreed to amend the FIR to insert section 302, IPC in place of the earlier provision of section 304. The bench, however, stated in the same breath that the “agreement of addition of provision on his part is not sufficient discharge of duty” and that “there will be a requirement of valid proofs before the Court of law”. The prayer to change the investigating agency had been preferred by the petitioner, pointing out that till date, not a single accused has been arrested despite all of them being police officers. “His grievance is that the corpus is not available till date and although Section 302 of the IPC is agreed to have been added, there is no clarity about anything”, recorded the bench. It was also pressed that if on the one hand, the accused chooses not to be available to the investigating officer, and on the other hand, he prefers a petition before this Court seeking quashing of the case, that itself speaks volumes of the “connivance” and hence, there is an imminent need for the Court to change the investigating agency. On Wednesday, the bench deemed it “utmost necessary” for the investigating agency to “gear up and reach to the truth of the matter by collecting all vital evidence and also ensuring that those evidences did not get lost”. Accordingly, the Court acceded to the request for change of investigating agency rather than permitting some more time in the matter to the Vadodara police as that may “further result in loss of vital evidence”. The petitioner before the High Court has alleged that on 09.12.2019, his father had gone to Vadodara Railway Station to get his bicycle (on which he carried out his retail dealing in clothes) and from there, he was taken to the Fatehganj Police Station for interrogation and since then, he has not been heard of. On taking cognisance of the matter, the division bench had found from the report of the Additional Police Commissioner, Vadodara city that the corpus was called for inquiring into his involvement in some offence on 10.12.2019 at the Fatehganj Police Station. It was a surveillance squad of the Fatehganj Police Station that had taken him at 11:30 in the morning and he was allowed to leave the police station at 17:25 hours after making a note in the police station diary. The whereabouts of this person, after he was permitted to leave at 17:25 hours on 10.12.2019, according to this report, is not found. Consequently, the bench had directed the Additional Police Commissioner to make all possible attempts to bring the corpus before this Court. Subsequently, on July 6, a FIR for the offences punishable under Sections 304, 201, 203, 204 and 34 of the IPC had come to be registered at the instance of the Addl. Police Commr. The first informant’s report to the Court conveyed as to how the corpus, alive or dead, is not found, and that all indicators point to the corpus not being alive. Noting that those who are arraigned as accused in this matter are absconding, and the efforts are on to arrest them, the bench had required the FIR to be amended so as to add the provision of Section 302 instead of Section 304 of the IPC.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

In our opinion, though there is pandemic situation, but ultimately life has to go and the career of the students cannot be put on peril for long and full academic year cannot be wasted”.The JEE (Main) exams are scheduled from September 1 to 6 and the NEET(UG) exam is scheduled on September 13. Amid a wide campaign launched by several students in social media seeking the postponement of exams, the National Testing Agency announced its decision to go ahead with the exams as per the announced dates.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
