WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that government workers can’t be forced to contribute to labour unions that represent them in collective bargaining, dealing a serious financial blow to Democratic-leaning organized labour.The court’s conservative majority, re-empowered by Justice Neil Gorsuch, scrapped a 41-year-old decision that had allowed states to require that public employees pay some fees to unions that represent them, even if the workers choose not to join.The 5-4 decision not only will free non-union members in nearly two dozen states from any financial ties to unions, but also could encourage members to stop paying dues for services the court said Wednesday they can get for free.Union leaders said in reaction to the ruling that they expect to suffer some loss of revenue and also predicted that the same anti-union forces that pushed to get rid of the so-called fair shares that nonmembers had to pay will try to persuade members to cut their ties.“There are already plans,” said Lily Eskelsen García, president of the National Education Association. “They are going after our members.”But American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said unions would not be dissuaded: “Don’t count us out.”The labour leaders spoke after the court ruled that the laws requiring fair share fees violate the First Amendment by compelling workers to support unions they may disagree with.“States and public-sector unions may no longer extract agency fees from nonconsenting employees,” Justice Samuel Alito said in his majority opinion in the latest case in which Gorsuch, an appointee of President Donald Trump, provided a key fifth vote for a conservative outcome.Trump himself tweeted his approval of the decision while Alito still was reading a summary of it from the bench.“Big loss for the coffers of the Democrats!” Trump said in the tweet.In dissent, Justice Elena Kagan wrote of the big impact of the decision. “There is no sugarcoating today’s opinion. The majority overthrows a decision entrenched in this Nation’s law — and its economic life — for over 40 years. As a result, it prevents the American people, acting through their state and local officials, from making important choices about workplace governance. And it does so by weaponizing the First Amendment, in a way that unleashes judges, now and in the future, to intervene in economic and regulatory policy.”The court’s three other liberal justices joined the dissent.In one sense, Wednesday’s result was no surprise and merely delayed by the unexpected death of Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016. The court split 4-4, after Scalia’s death, when it considered the same issue in 2016.When Trump was elected, opponents of the fees hurried a case back to the court. And fearing what would happen, unions strongly opposed Gorsuch’s nomination to the high court.The unions say the outcome could affect more than 5 million government workers in about two dozen states and the District of Columbia.The case decided Wednesday involved Illinois state government worker Mark Janus, who argued that everything unions do, including bargaining with the state, is political and employees should not be forced to pay for it.The unions argued that fair share fees pay for collective bargaining and other work the union does on behalf of all employees, not just its members. More than half the states already have right-to-work laws banning mandatory fees, but most members of public-employee unions are concentrated in states that don’t, including California, New York and Illinois.A recent study by Frank Manzo of the Illinois Economic Policy Institute and Robert Bruno of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign estimated that public-sector unions could lose more than 700,000 members over time as a result of the ruling and that unions also could suffer a loss of political influence that could depress wages as well.Alito acknowledged that unions could “experience unpleasant transition costs in the short term.” But he said labour’s problems pale in comparison to “the considerable windfall that unions have received…for the past 41 years.”Billions of dollars have been taken from workers who were not union members in that time, he said.“Those unconstitutional exactions cannot be allowed to continue indefinitely,” Alito wrote.Kagan, reading a summary of her dissent in the courtroom, said unions only could collect money for the costs of negotiating terms of employment. “But no part of those fees could go to any of the union’s political or ideological activities,” she said.The court’s majority said public-sector unions aren’t entitled to any money from employees without their consent.
Canada Post said Monday that the backlog of mail and parcels is “severe” and expected to “worsen significantly” once online orders from Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are processed.In a statement, the post office said it is experiencing delivery delays across the country and that’s expected to continue throughout the holiday season and into January.The union wants better pay and job security, guaranteed hours for its 8,000 rural and suburban carriers, and equality for those workers with the corporation’s 42,000 urban employees.CUPW also wants Canada Post to adopt rules that it says would cut down on workplace injuries — an issue the union has said is now at a “crisis” level. UPDATE – Workers are back to work following the Senate vote.FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Canada Post employees in Fort St. John have joined the rotating strike after the Senate voted in favour of back to work legislation.With the vote Monday night, mail service is supposed to resume at noon Tuesday. Royal assent was granted late Monday shortly after senators approved Bill C-89 by a vote of 53-25. Four senators abstained. Under the new legislation, the union said postal workers will be forced to go back to work under the old collective agreement, which it asserted would result in at least 315 disabling injuries and thousands of hours of forced, unpaid overtime.The previous Conservative government forced an end to a lockout of postal workers during a 2011 dispute by enacting back-to-work legislation, which was later declared by a court to be unconstitutional.But the Liberal government argues Bill C-89 is different, in that it does not impose immediate outcomes affecting postal contracts.Whereas the 2011 bill imposed a settlement that favoured Canada Post, the current legislation would give a mediator-arbitrator appointed by the government 90 days to try and reach contract settlements. Failing that, a settlement could be imposed either through a decision from the arbitrator or by choosing from one of the final proposals put forward by Canada Post or CUPW.(THE CANADIAN PRESS) The government had deemed passage of the bill to be urgent due to the economic impact of continued mail disruptions during the busy holiday season. It rushed the bill through the House of Commons last week. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers issued a statement declaring that it is “exploring all options to fight the back-to-work legislation.”“Postal workers are rightly dismayed and outraged,” said CUPW national president Mike Palecek. “This law violates our right to free collective bargaining under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.”Some senators — independents, Liberal independents and even some Conservatives — agreed with that assessment and voted against the bill.But the majority either disagreed or concluded that it’s up to the courts, not senators, to rule on constitutionality.Negotiations have been underway for nearly a year, but the dispute escalated more recently when CUPW members launched rotating strikes Oct. 22.

Online retailer ShopClues on Tuesday said its valuation stood at over $1.1 billion (Rs 7,300 crore) in a fresh round of funding led by Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC Pvt Ltd.However, the company did not disclose the amount it raised in the deal.

Theresa MayBritish Prime Minister Theresa May called for a two-year transition after Brexit on Friday in which Britain would largely maintain its current ties with Brussels, in a charm offensive intended to unlock stalled negotiations with the European Union.In a major speech in Florence, May promised to meet Britain’s existing EU budget commitments until 2020 and outlined new legal guarantees for the rights of around three million Europeans living in the UK.She also committed to maintaining Europe’s security, saying in a direct pitch to EU leaders: “We want to be your strongest friend and partner as the EU and UK thrive side by side.”A fourth round of negotiations with the European Commission is due to start next week, with London keen to make progress on the terms of the divorce so that talks can move on to trade.“While the UK’s departure from the EU is inevitably a difficult process, it is in all of our interests for our negotiations to succeed,” she said.May confirmed she wanted a transition period after Brexit of “around two years” in which EU citizens could continue to work in Britain but have to register.For both Britain and the EU, “access to one another’s markets should continue on current terms” during this period, she said.She also promised to honour Britain’s financial commitments for the remainder of the EU’s current budget plan, saying no member state would “pay more or receive less”.Britain’s contributions for two years would be at least 20 billion euros (£18 billion, $24 billion) — although this falls well below European estimates of Britain’s total Brexit bill.With new offers on money and citizens’ rights, the prime minister addressed two of the three priorities of the EU.Charles Grant of the Centre for European Reform said May was “right to adopt a positive tone”, but added that her offers were “not enough to unblock” the talks.The suggestion that existing immigration and trading rules will continue for two years after Britain leaves the EU in March 2019 sparked immediate condemnation from eurosceptics.“Theresa May’s Brexit vision is that we leave the EU in name only. All areas of integration we have currently will be rebadged,” said leading campaigner Nigel Farage.EU citizens’ rights -May’s speech came 15 months after Britain’s referendum vote to leave the EU and six months after she triggered the two-year Brexit process, amid increasing demands by Brussels for more clarity.One problem was that her own government is still divided-a fact highlighted this week when Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson laid out his own vision for life outside the EU.After the speech, he said May’s words were “uplifting”.Although May did not rule out her previous threat of walking away from the talks, she expressed optimism that a deal could be done.On the issue of EU citizens’ rights, she sought to break the deadlock over the role of the European Court of Justice as the arbiter in any disputes.She said the final deal agreed with Brussels would be fully incorporated into British law, to ensure parliament could not change it in the future.British courts could also “take into account” ECJ rulings in deciding cases, she said.A small group of British expatriates had gathered outside the Santa Maria Novella church complex where May spoke, holding up signs saying “Hands off our rights”.Carolyn Slater, a 69-year-old pensioner who moved to Italy from Scotland, said: “We’re very fed up with being given no information.“Brexit was absurd but it’s happened, we have to live with it now. From the start we’ve been told we’re a priority, but that’s wearing pretty thin.”‘Creative and practical’ -May is hoping her speech will be enough to unlock the talks in time for an EU leaders meeting on October 19-20, when her 27 counterparts will decide if talks can move onto trade.The shape of that future deal remains elusive-although the prime minister insisted there could be no role for the ECJ, a totemic issue for eurosceptics in Britain.She rejected the idea that Britain could adopt a model similar to that enjoyed by Norway, or a free trade agreement like the one recently struck between the EU and Canada.“Instead let us be creative as well as practical in designing an ambitious economic partnership,” she said.
The iconic Pentagon is considered to be the largest office building in the world, and certainly the largest Ministry of Defense building, covering more than 6,500,000 sq ft (600,000 m2). But how did the seat of the U.S. Defense Department get its unusual shape? Well, the story of its construction goes back to 1941, to the very eve of American involvement in WWII. As the Nazi threat became imminent, a necessity to put the entire Defense Department into a single building became a top priority.Ariel view of the US Pentagon buildingHaving been previously headquartered in the temporary Munitions Building, the Defense Department was desperate for a permanent base from which it could coordinate its operations due to the ensuing threat, both from Europe and Japan.In addition to this, the Defense Department was pretty much spread across dozens of civilian buildings in the National Mall and Memorial Parks area.Pentagon from aboveJust after Hitler initiated his invasion of the USSR, military leadership came up with a solution for a centralized office building that would enable them to act most effectively.1945 map of the Pentagon road network, including present-day State Route 27 and part of the Shirley Highway, as well as the Main Navy and Munitions Buildings near the Lincoln Memorial.Army construction chief, Brig. Gen. Brehon Burke Somervell was in charge of planning for the new building, as it was soon determined that it should be built on the Virginian side of the Potomac River, in Arlington County.Conditions determined that the building should not be more than four stories tall to prevent the obstruction of the view of Washington, D.C. The decision to build a low-rise headquarters was also due to the limited availability of steel, which was one of the main materials used by the military.Southwesterly view (1998) with the Potomac River and Washington Monument in background.At first, it was planned to start the construction on the site of the former Department of Agriculture’s Arlington Experimental Farm, and the Arlington Cemetery.The new War Department was intended to adopt the foundations of the farm, which was built in the shape of an asymmetrical pentagon. Everyone agreed that the shape was odd ― to say the least ― but it fit perfectly.Related Video: American Tanks move in to secure ridges on Hill 609:That was how a rough sketch of what we know today as the center of U.S. military might was first made. The sketch turned to an architectural plan, all in a course of several weeks in July 1941.View from northwest with construction underway, July 1942Intended to house around 40,000 employees, it was clear from the start that this ugly duckling was to be one of the American government’s most ambitious projects.However, the Arlington Experimental Farm lot was soon deemed unsuitable due to aesthetic reasons. A commission was formed, led by Gilmore D. Clarke, a respected civil engineer and landscape architect, who strongly opposed the idea of erecting the Defense Department building next to the cemetery which held the grave of Pierre L’Enfant, the architect who developed the urban plan on which the city of Washington is based.Military police keep back Vietnam War protesters during their sit-in on October 21, 1967, at the mall entrance to the Pentagon.In his letter to the Senate, Clarke made a bold statement which shook the Defense Department plan to the ground:“It is inconceivable that this outrage could be perpetrated in this period of the history of the development of this City, a city held in the highest esteem by every citizen who visits it.”As the tensions grew higher between military and civil engineers, President Roosevelt decided to make a compromise.The PentagonThe location of the building was transferred to the nearby Hoover Field ― an early Washington airstrip, which was replaced by the Washington National Airport in 1941.While this left room to change the unusual shape of the building into a more standard, rectangular format, there was little time to revise the plans, and only minor adjustments concerning the asymmetrical shape of the compound were made.On September 11, 1941, the construction work commenced. The project would be finished in January 1943, almost a year after the United States officially declared war against the Axis Powers.The PentagonDue to its shape, the building soon became known as “The Pentagon” ― a word which is to this day considered synonymous with the American Armed Forces.Truth be told, Roosevelt himself became fond of the odd shape of the building and although there was little space for change, he personally didn’t mind.Read another story from us: The Peculiar Frenchman who Designed Washington D.C.According to a 2007 Washington Post article regarding the issue, Roosevelt stated that he liked the Pentagon “because nothing like it has ever been done that way before”.

John Koger, the owner of bus-ticketing and travel service A Safe Passage, died on Nov. 9, 2015, at the age of 61. The cause of death was a heart attack.Koger had made Costa Rica his home for the past 20 years. He often joked that Ticos became the happiest people in the world after he arrived, and he left a trail of smiles wherever he went.A Safe Passage epitomized Koger’s passion for making it easier and safer for travelers to enjoy the country he loved. Providing travel information and onward tickets was his way of making a difference for expats and for tourists throughout the world. His focus on service was unparalleled, and he received hundreds of emails from grateful clients.Against great odds, Koger also succeeded in constructing a bus shelter to keep Ticos and travelers out of the rain; he persuaded Costa Rica’s tourism board, the ICT, to publish clear entry requirements; and he worked tirelessly to inform airlines that bus tickets are legitimate proof of onward travel.Koger is survived by three children: twin daughters Amber and Nicole, and a son, Bryant, as well as two grandchildren, and fellow travelers around the world who became his friends. John Koger, second from right, had a passion for making it easier and safer for travelers to enjoy the country he loved. He is pictured here with romeros, faithful followers who make an annual pilgramage to the Basílica Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles in Cartago.

Jet Airways India Ltd has named aviation veteran Vinay Dube as its Chief Executive Officer (CEO).The position of CEO at the airline has been vacant for more than two years since Cramer Ball resigned from the post. The Mumbai-based firm had appointed Gaurang Shetty as the acting CEO in 2016, who was subsequently replaced by Amit Agarwal, the company’s CFO, as the acting CEO.As the CEO of Jet Airways, Dube will be responsible for strengthening the airline’s overall business performance and its position in the domestic and international markets. He will also head the airline’s executive management team, which has been tasked by the board of directors to drive the company’s growth and future strategy by leveraging its partnership with equity partner Etihad Airways.“I am delighted that Vinay Dube will be joining Jet Airways as its Chief Executive Officer. An Indian American, Dubey brings an enviable combination of smart and sharp mindset with global exposure to industry best practices. I am sure Jet Airways will gain substantially from his wealth of experience and industry insight,” said Naresh Goyal, Chairman, Jet Airways.Dube is currently the Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific with Delta Air Lines Inc. During his decade-long career at Delta, Dube helped the airline profitably expand its Asia-Pacific business.Jet Airways stated in a statement that Dube has “an established track record of business restructuring at large, complex, multi-national organisations.”
Cyprus had the highest ratio of police officers per 100,000 residents in 2016, Eurostat showed on Friday but the force on the island said the figures were somewhat misleading.According to Eurostat, in 2016, Cyprus had 573 police officers per 100,000 residents, which was over six times Hungary’s ratio of 90 officers per 100,000 residents, the lowest of the countries measured.Cyprus’ figure was also almost double the average EU ratio in 2016, which was at 318 police officers per 100,000 people, or one police officer per 314 people.According to Eurostat, “the number of police officers in the EU has slowly been decreasing in recent years.”The EU had a total of 1.6 million police officers in 2016, a reduction of 3.4 per cent since 2009.That year, 2016, also marked a spiralling increase in female police officers in the EU, Eurostat showed. From 16.7 per cent in 2008, the figure rose to 21.1 per cent in 2016, indicating that one in five police officers was a woman.The study also showed that in 2016, half (49.5 per cent) of the 86,000 professional judges in the EU were women, while the share of women prison staff was one in four (25 per cent).Despite the decreasing number of police officers in the EU, there are still big differences between the member states, the report noted, especially if Hungary (90 officers per 100,000 people), Finland (137), Denmark (186) and Sweden (203), are compared to countries with much higher ratios such as Croatia (490), Greece (492), Malta (505) and Cyprus (573).One reason for this, Eurostat says, is that “countries organise their law enforcement differently, according to national needs, resources and priorities,” while another reason for the difference between the national figures is who each country counts as police.“For example, some special police units may be counted in different ways. The standard definition of police officers does not include clerks, maintenance staff and other employees who are not directly involved in typical police work,” Eurostat explained.This is the case for Cyprus, the police said in an announcement in response to Eurostat’s report, where it claimed that the high figure accounts for “the inclusion of various units and services which in other European countries constitute a separate body and are therefore not included in the statistics as members of the police.”These units and services include the immigration service, the port and maritime police, airport security, the presidential guard, as well as the departments responsible for the security of government buildings and embassies and the implementation of legislation concerning the control of smoking, noise, alcoholic beverages, the police said.“The aforementioned services are not included in the term ‘police’ in other countries, so any comparison becomes precarious, as in the case of the Cyprus police these are 20 per cent of its human resources.”Additionally, “the police force of other European states is supported by a large number of civilian personnel, which assist and strengthen the police services, which is not the case with the Cyprus police.”The police also highlighted that the large number of tourists who visit Cyprus, around four million, constitute a national need for a heightened ratio of police officers to population.“It is also worth mentioning,” the police said, “that even though in the EU the number of police officers fell by 3.4 per cent from 2009 until 2016, the corresponding figure for Cyprus was 14.7 per cent.” You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
