Analysts had expected an unchanged reading.Bank Deputy Governor Charles Bean said on Monday that policymakers were watching inflationary pressures “like proverbial hawks” and admitted inflation had been uncomfortably above target.Inflation for food and non-alcoholic beverages rose 5.5 per cent on the year, its biggest rise since May 2009, driven by increases in the cost of bread, cereals and poultry.Clothing prices rose by an annual 2.1 percent, its fastest rate since comparable records began in 1997.Slowdowns in the pace of inflation for transport, recreation and culture, and restaurants and hotels to their lowest since 2009 were not enough to stop the rise in the annual rate of consumer price inflation.On the month, consumer price inflation picked up to 0.4 per cent from 0.3 per cent in October.The retail price inflation gauge, which includes more housing costs and is the benchmark for many wage deals rose unexpectedly to 4.7 per cent from 4.5 per cent in October.

The great train robbery: Swedish railroad strike against Veolia escalates

first_imgSEKO leads the strike against Veolia.Stockholm, Sweden — A train strike in southern Sweden has evolved into a major battle about worsening working conditions in the labor market here. In its drive to increase profits, the French union-busting company Veolia is meeting contract resistance from a unified union movement.Resistance is all the more intense because of the spread of temporary contract employment. The increase in part-time employment in recent years threatens to undermine the collective bargaining gains made after decades of struggle by Swedish trade unions.Veolia fired 250 full-time employees in hopes of forcing them to reapply for their jobs. In many cases what were full-time will become part-time positions. Workers will then have to be on standby for extra hours as needed. This puts the workers both in competition with each other and with expensive temporary staff from private employment agencies.SEKO, the Swedish Service and Communication Employees Union, called the train strike when contract negotiations failed to reach agreement. It has the backing of the entire LO, the Swedish union confederation.SEKO had offered to compromise if temporary contracts were transformed into permanent jobs after one year’s employment and if a limit was placed on the total number of hours per year to be filled by temporary replacements. Many workers have split-shift jobs, which also require them to be at the disposal of employers.Veolia´s response was to demand 13-hour passes and forced night shifts, to eliminate the existing contractual every second week off, and to force workers to take their vacations only in May and September!The union has announced that it will pull out hundreds more train personnel just before the upcoming midsummer holiday, which is comparable to Thanksgiving weekend traffic in the United States, including those in the commuter system in the Stockholm area. The Electricians Union was the first to announce sympathy measures, which are legal here. The Restaurant Workers Union will stop all catering services to lines operated by Veolia.The strike has received wide press coverage. Public support for the workers’ side is solid among the tens of thousands of commuters affected daily by the conflict. A Facebook group, “We commuters who support the SEKO strike,” carries new photos every day of groups as varied as local unions, teachers, hospital workers and tenant associations who endorse the strike. The union workers often pose in strike vests, which some have called the latest fashion statement from Sweden.Behind the outpouring of public support lies a general dissatisfaction with the privatization of much of the public sector in the last decade and the profits it has generated for risk capitalists and the new actors in the market it has created. Frightening examples in education and health care conditions have alarmed the Swedish population, who are prepared to pay taxes for quality services. Opinion polls show that from 80 percent to 90 percent of the people support a movement that demands no “profit” be made in the welfare sector, unless that profit is ploughed back into public services rather than exported to foreign tax havens.Since deregulation of the formerly nationalized train system, it is increasingly impossible to keep track of who owns the trains or operates all the different lines or bus routes and who is responsible for repairs or upkeep. The principle of awarding contracts based on the lowest price has caused total anarchy. This deregulated system is incapable of preventing stoppages, cancelled trains and delays.One well-known Swedish author, Mikael Nyberg, has written a book, “The Great Train Robbery,” which describes the deterioration of public transportation. The greedy tactics of Veolia are a symbol of what neoliberals are trying to achieve with their aggressive anti-union practices.Only increased struggle by progressive forces can force the unions to remain firm in their resistance. This is a struggle that is important not only for the railroad workers but for everyone fighting for full-time jobs they can live on.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

’Release Angel Ramos’ autopsy report!’

first_imgWorkers World Party Bay Area members joined Anti Police-Terror Project and International Longshore Workers Union Local 10 representatives on June 2  in front of the Solano County Courthouse in Fairfield, Calif.  They were there to support the family of Angel Rico Ramos, who are demanding that the Solano County Coroner’s office release the autopsy report concerning the police killing of their 21-year-old family member.Ramos would have turned 22 on June 3, but was shot and killed by a Vallejo police officer on the evening of Jan. 23, as he stood on the second-floor deck of a house during a party. The initial police report claimed he was attempting to stab another young man, but the alleged victim and other witnesses assert that Ramos was unarmed.The protesting group held space at the Solano County Courthouse for three hours until 1:23 p.m. in remembrance of the Jan. 23 date of Ramos’ murder.Ramos’ relatives and community advocates have repeatedly requested a copy of the autopsy report, which would provide proof of the officer’s wrongdoing.  But it was once again not released on June 2. However, the Ramos’ family and their supporters alerted the coroner’s office that they would continue to protest in greater numbers until the autopsy report is released.Community members and anti-police brutality activists are concerned  about the high level of police killings in Solano County, and they vow to continue demonstrating their opposition to this terror.

On the Road to Justice with im/migrant TPS holders

first_imgBy G. LechatInspired by the great Civil Rights Movement and in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, immigrant Temporary Protected Status recipients organizing with Alianza TPS Nacional are forging a “Road to Justice.” This is the name they gave their 200+ car caravan that converged on Washington, D.C.,  June 23-24 to demand their overdue civil rights.Protections including legal residency, work and driving authorizations are scheduled to end in January 2021. Without TPS or a path to permanent, legal residency, recipients and their families are vulnerable to dispossession and deportation.Im/migrant TPS holders demand civil rights, June 24, Washington, D.C.Of the total 320,000 recipients from 13 Brown and Black TPS countries in the Americas, Africa and the Middle East, close to 200,000 are from El Salvador. Most are in their 40s, with 20+ years’ worth of 18-month temporary residency extensions behind them. They are union members, business and home owners, and parents to many of the childhood arrivals who struggled for the DREAM Act — which would have granted them, but not their parents, full citizenship rights had it passed. Ultimately those youth either received Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in 2012 or TPS; 68,000, or 22 percent of TPS-holders, arrived in the U.S. as minors.The multinational Tepesana/os (as they are called in Spanish) also have 300,000 U.S.-born children, many of them activists for permanent residency in their own right. They know if their parents are deported, they could be separated from them, or forced to migrate with them to countries left dangerous and depressed by U.S. intervention.Representing dozens of local Alianza-affiliated Comité groups, activist families drove to D.C. from almost every East Coast state, as well as Illinois, Texas, even California. Simultaneous rallies also took place in Western state capitals.. They called on the Senate to pass both the Dream and Promise Act and the Heroes Act, which respectively offer a citizenship path for qualifying DACA recipients and stimulus funds for all essential workers. Both of these bills were declared “dead on arrival” by the odious Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.Like DACA — a concession to the movement’s massive 2006 mobilizations that resuscitated May Day in the U.S., but a half-measure compared to the Dream Act — TPS status is legal but temporary. Trump terminated both programs early in his presidency. There has been an intensifying struggle ever since.Legal action on behalf of TPS has been pending in the 9th Circuit Court since last summer. Proceeding faster, the Supreme Court’s DACA decision came last week. An estimated 800,000 DACA recipients could have been forced underground, but the June 18th restoration of the program by right-wing SCOTUS – put on the defensive by the BLM rebellion – signals hope for the TPS case in the lower court.That said, all that has been won for DACA recipients and all that is possible for TPS recipients through the courts is preservation of their second-class status as temporary residents. This involves more surveillance, check-ins, thousands in fees, no welfare benefits or vote, and only short-term protections dependent on who rules.TPS-holders renew militancy, demand legal #ResidencyNowInitially the TPS-holders’ demand was simply “Save TPS.” But TPS workers have become emboldened for a number of reasons: their increasing alliance with the youth movement already burned by the death of their Dream Act, the callous dysfunction of governmental institutions, Trump’s vile racism, the routine of racist murder on U.S. streets and the unprecedented rebellion in response.Their resurgent militancy was on full display in D.C.: “Residency Now,” “We Are Essential,” “BLM” and “F*ck 12” (new slang for cops), with only occasional reference to “Save TPS” and no support for any Democratic Party figures. No national politicians stepped forward to vocally support TPS recipients before they became the “heroes” — cleaning, driving, constructing, cooking and caring through the COVID-19 pandemic, facing risk and uncertainty —  not even Bernie Sanders.The demand has become permanent: legal #ResidencyNow. According to Alianza leader Marta Bonilla, the organization is now “calling for legal permanent residency for 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country as well as for TPS-holders.” This is a beautiful display of working-class solidarity and a significant political development!Few personally embody this promise more than Bonilla, a leader of the Massachusetts Comité, who has continued organizing between her two jobs even after getting her citizenship when her daughter came of age last year: “When I started organizing for TPS it was because my union, UNITE HERE Local 26, asked me to, because they care about the members. They have donated money for our activities and supported the Comité.”It has not been possible to estimate how many union members have TPS, but it is thought to be a very large percentage, especially for certain unions, binding the future viability of the labor movement to winning the struggle for permanent residency. Bonilla continued that supporters need to bring TPS and immigration issues to their unions: “What we would like to see more is for unions talking about TPS nationally, to members and in the news. It would be nice if they organized members to join us like when we were just in Washington.”Solidarity is also welcomed by any kind of group reaching out to its closest Alianza chapter to offer support.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A similar payout of €500 was granted for her benefit with the remaining balances to be held in trust until both reach 18.A personal injury claim made by their father is to be heard before the High Court in April.

6th victim of Long Island murders identified through genetic genealogy

first_imgiStock/Jonathan Ross(NEW YORK) — BY: AARON KATERSKY and ELLA TORRESA previously unidentified victim of the unsolved Gilgo Beach murders in Long Island was named Thursday, nearly two decades after her partial remains were first found, police said.Valerie Mack was identified as the victim previously known as “Manorville Jane Doe” or “Jane Doe #6,” the Suffolk County Police Department announced. Mack was identified through genetic genealogy technology.Mack went missing in 2000 when she was 24 and working as an escort in Philadelphia, according to police. Her partial remains were found that same year in a wooded area off Halsey-Manor Road in Manorville. In 2011, her dismembered remains were found along Ocean Parkway in Gilgo Beach.The murders have never been solved, and, until Mack’s identification, half the victims had not yet been identified.In 2010 and 2011, the remains of 10 people were discovered in Gilgo Beach in weedy sections of Ocean Parkway near Jones Beach. Police have said most of the victims were sex workers. Four victims remain unidentified.No suspects have been detained, but police previously told ABC News they’re working under the assumption a serial killer is to blame in some, if not all, of the killings.Police made the grisly discovery while searching for a missing sex worker, Shannan Gilbert. Her body eventually was found in December 2011 in nearby Oak Beach, which is also along Ocean Parkway. Police don’t believe her death is tied to the others because she “doesn’t match the pattern of the Gilgo Beach homicides,” but they’ve also said her death is part of the active investigation into the Gilgo Beach murders.In January, police released what they called a “significant piece of evidence” involving the murders. The evidence was a photograph of a black leather belt embossed with the letters “WH” or “HM,” depending on how it’s held.Suffolk County Police Commissioner Geraldine Hart said at a press conference she believed a suspect in the murders “handled” the belt, but would not elaborate.Hart on Thursday said she hopes the identification of Mack will bring some sense of closure and peace to her family.It is believed to be the first time a law enforcement agency in New York state has used genetic genealogy to identify an individual as part of a police investigation, authorities said. Police had announced last week that they made the identification, but did not immediately name Mack.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
