Security guards, agricultural workers to benefit from free movement within Caricom

first_imgSecurity guards and agricultural workers are expected to have an easier time moving across the Caribbean for work in the near future.According to the Caricom Secretariat, Caricom’s Council for Human and Social Development (COHSOD) on Labour is doing its part to move the process forward by having a special meeting this week to further discuss the matter.This meeting of Ministers of Labour from across the Region will be held via videoconference, today.Assistant Secretary General, Directorate for Human and Social Development at the Caricom Secretariat, Dr Douglas Slater, and Chairman of the meeting, Minister of Labour and Small Enterprises and Development, Trinidad and Tobago, Jennifer Baptiste Primus, will give brief remarks at the opening.According to the Secretariat, this special meeting of the COHSOD will seek to advance efforts towards implementing the mandate from the Caricom Heads of Government for agricultural workers and security guards to move under the Caricom Single Market and Economy (CSME). The COHSOD is to advise on the avenues that can be used to facilitate the movement of Community nationals in these categories. In particular, the meeting will determine definitions of these categories and the mechanisms to be used to assess who is an agricultural worker or security guard. A definition of household domestics will also be considered.The Council will be guided by proposals from consultations with stakeholders in the agriculture and security sectors held on January 15, 2019. Delegates will also be guided by discussions that took place in September and November of 2018 regarding the definition of household domestics at the Twentieth Meeting of Officials on the Free Movement of Skills and the Facilitation of Travel and the Forty-Seventh Meeting of the Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED), the release added.The Caricom Heads of Government, at their Eighteenth Special Meeting on the CSME (December 3 – 4, 2018) agreed to extend the categories of nationals entitled to move across the Region to include agricultural workers and security guards under the CSME. The conference agreed that these additional categories are to be facilitated administratively by the end of February 2019 and implemented into legislation by Member States by the end of July. The conference had agreed previously that household domestics with a Caribbean Vocational Qualification were eligible to move under the CSME.last_img read more

Senate gears for veto fight with Bush over huge spending bill

first_imgWASHINGTON – Senate Democrats on Tuesday reversed President George W. Bush’s cuts to education, health research and grants to local communities as they gird for Bush’s first-ever veto of a regular appropriations bill. By a 75-19 vote, the Senate gave bipartisan approval to a huge health and education spending bill that will likely be the first of the fiscal 2008 spending bills Democrats will ship to the White House to start a veto battle involving the budget for almost every domestic agency. It promises to be a protracted battle, and Bush has a decided advantage, but Democrats have seized on the massive health and education measure as the best measure with which to challenge Bush and his GOP allies in Congress. The measure totals more than $600billion and reverses a raft of cuts sought by Bush to health research, special education and funding for grants to community groups that help the poor, among others. The confrontation with Bush over domestic programs – many of which are also popular with Republicans, as demonstrated by the margin of passage – will come on the heels of the bruising veto battle over a children’s health insurance bill. Programs funded by the health and education bill affect schoolchildren, workers, the poor and disabled, the unemployed and those with special needs or drug and alcohol problems, among others. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The Senate measure, which exceeds Bush’s budget by more than $10billion, must be reconciled with a companion House measure passed in July before the legislation can be sent to Bush. Battles over anti-crime funds, transportation and housing and perhaps the homeland security budget will follow. “We are arguing about whether or not to invest further moneys in education, health care, (anti-crime grants), border security, port security, environmental protection,” said House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., countered, “The spending hike they are asking for in this one bill, if allowed to continue at the same rate, will cost the American taxpayer $120billion over the next 10 years.” Bush is intent on issuing vetoes and has so far rebuffed Democratic pleas for negotiations. But Democrats and some Republicans hope that once he gets a few vetoes out of his system, the White House will signal a willingness to compromise.last_img read more

Sterling cleared of harassment

first_imgAn L.A. County Superior Court jury rejected claims by a former employee of Clippers owner Donald T. Sterling that he fired her for turning down his sexual advances. The jury determined after the nine-week trial that Sterling had not sexually harassed and then retaliated against Sumner Davenport, hired in 2001 as a property supervisor for apartments and other buildings owned by his Beverly Hills Properties. Sterling said in court records that Davenport got tired of her job over her 11 months of employment, resulting in her “vindictively hatching a scheme to discredit, harass and embarrass” him and his company. His legal team said she had tried unsuccessfully to file a stress-related workers’ compensation claim. John F. Denove, Davenport’s attorney, said Friday the workers’ compensation issue was pending. He said he talked to jurors who told him they didn’t believe Sterling’s account but believed Sterling had corroborating evidence and that Davenport didn’t.

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University men’s golf team is set to compete at the Missouri Valley Conference Championship on Monday (April 24) and Tuesday (April 25) at the Cog Hill Golf & Country Club (Course #4) in Lemont, Ill.

COAST GUARD HAS TO INTERVENE AS JET SKI NUTS TERRIFY SWIMMERS

first_imgA COAST Guard team had to take to the water today as jet skiers and speed boat owners came within inches of swimmers on a popular beach.As temperatures soared thousands of people headed for some of Co Donegal’s most popular beaches.But some of them faced being seriously injured, according to eyewitnesses today. A Coast Guard spokesman confirmed its Mulroy crew had to take to the waters off Downings today to speak to a jet skier and the owner of a speed boat.“They were going far too close to swimmers along the shoreline,” he said.One eyewitness, a visitor from the North, told us: “It was a fantastic day but there’s always someone around to spoil it for the rest.“These people were whizzing through the water at high speed and coming far to close to the shore. “Last year a wee boy was killed in County Down by someone on a jet ski. They are dangerous and shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near packed beaches like they were today.”Local people who had gone to the popular beach said the incidents were unsavoury.“We go down to the beach to relax and these people would give you a headache,” said a local mother of three.“They are up and down in the water in boats and on those skis and they should just be banned. Simple as that.There were also complaints of quads being used on other beaches – and rubbish dumped by visitors. The Coast Guard also renewed its appeal for people not to take inflatables out into open water.COAST GUARD HAS TO INTERVENE AS JET SKI NUTS TERRIFY SWIMMERS was last modified: July 24th, 2014 by John2Share 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:Downingsjet skisMulroy Coast Guardspeed boatslast_img read more
