On the picket line: Teachers, bus drivers, AT&T workers & library workers

first_imgLed by teachers, unions respond to ICE raids Among first responders dealing with children left behind after the record-breaking Aug. 7 Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid on seven meatpacking plants in Mississippi were local teachers. Delegations of rank-and-file teachers and nurses — members of the American Federation of Teachers — traveled to Canton to assist local educators, community members and the Food and Commercial Workers union (UFCW), which represents many of the detained workers. With millions of children affected by increased ICE raids targeting undocumented workers, many teachers are unprepared to deal with the trauma and anxiety students suffer in im/migrant communities. Over 2.5 million undocumented youth attend U.S. public schools, and 4.1 million who are U.S. citizens live in homes where one or both parents are immigrants. That’s why the AFT has developed training materials to help teachers understand the psychological impact on children and support those whose parents are deported. Pamphlets like the free, online 40-page guide for educators titled  “Immigrant and Refugee Children: A Guide for Educators and Refugees and School Support Staff” and other resources, such as a model curriculum and sample lesson plans to teach children about the politics of immigration, are on the AFT website. (Payday Report, Aug. 22) Some unions are starting to train workers how to fight raids. More than 30 national unions, including the Painters Union, UNITE HERE, the Ironworkers, the Bricklayers, UFCW, Teamsters and Laborers have launched Working Families United to help unions focus more on immigrant rights organizing. (Payday Report, Aug. 31) Stay tuned. Bus drivers win union after 35-year struggleThe city of Alexandria, Va., outside Washington, D.C., set up DASH bus service 35 years ago to create a cheaper, nonprofit, nonunion alternative to unionized regional MetroBus service. Ever since, drivers at DASH have been reaching out to Transit Union (ATU) Local 689 to organize for decent wages and benefits. But the city used every trick to crush union drives, including firing two activists this year. Local 689 did more than file an unfair labor practice charge; they built a winning campaign using a survey showing two-thirds of the drivers had to work overtime and one-third worked a second job to get by. The workers, many Ethiopian immigrants, would accept nothing less than the same contract terms as those of regional bus drivers.DASH made a fatal error when it announced it had to hire temporary drivers to increase bus service when Virginia’s commuter rail system was closed for repairs over the summer — and intended to pay the temps more than the experienced workforce. No wonder the drivers voted unanimously to strike unless DASH matched regional union standards. When commuter outrage exploded, management caved and finally met all the drivers’ demands. Ratification was unanimous, 111-0. (Labor Notes, July 30) The power of the strike threat wins again.When CWA workers strike AT&T, they winMore than 22,000 AT&T Southeast workers walked out at midnight Aug. 23 after AT&T repeatedly failed to bargain seriously. The unfair labor practices strike lasted four days and received a flood of support from the community and political candidates. Represented by Communication Workers (CWA) District 3, the mostly linemen, wire technicians and customer service representatives in nine southern states won a strong agreement. The five-year contract includes a 13.25 percent wage increase, boosts to pension and 401(k) plans, better job security and more customer service positions. The company backed down on raising health care costs.Once authorized management officials met with the union Aug. 28, it took no time to resolve outstanding issues. (Cwa-union.org, Aug. 30) This historic strike — the largest in the private sector in the South in more than a decade — was a win for the workers! Carnegie library workers open the union bookOn Aug. 14, more than 300 library workers — librarians, library assistants, clerks and information technology professionals — across 19 branches of Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Library system voted 60 percent in favor of joining the United Steelworkers (USW) and won a union.The campaign, which kicked off in June, grew through Facebook groups such as  Library Workers United and Community and Students for Academic Workers. The workers received support from other librarians and library unions, including the Free Library of Philadelphia, whose union passed a resolution and posted messages of solidarity. Isabelle Toomey, a children’s librarian, wrote that she was proud of her coworkers for organizing: “I am so excited to start this next chapter and look forward to working toward a contract that we deserve.” (USW.org, Aug. 14)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalist held for 16 years must be freed at once

first_img to go further UzbekistanEurope – Central Asia Organisation October 15, 2020 Find out more RSF_en News Receive email alerts New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council Prevented from seeing his lawyerThe authorities are currently preventing Bekjanov from seeing his lawyer, Polina Braunerg. When Braunerg went to the prison with a permit to see him on 29 April, she was told that he was on a National Security Service “blacklist” and that no information could be provided about him.“I waited to see my client for more than five hours in 38-degree Celsius heat without anyone trying to explain to me where he was,” she said.Reporters Without Borders and the Association for Human Rights in Central Asia are extremely concerned about this latest display of contempt for Bekjanov’s rights.“Muhammad Bekjanov must be given access to medical and legal assistance as a matter of urgency,” said Nadezhda Atayeva, the head of the Association for Human Rights in Central Asia. “The prison conditions have had a grave affect on his health and we fear they could be fatal.”Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk, added: “Nearly 16 years after his initial conviction, it is unacceptable that neither Bekjanov, his family or his lawyer have been given copies of the court decisions that have been taken in his case.”Bekjanov is being held hostage by the regime. His brother, the well-known poet and government opponent Muhammad Salikh, was the only person to run against Karimov in the December 1991 presidential election. Officially, he got less than 13 percent of the votes although independent observers thought he had won. Violence was used to crush pro-Salikh student demonstrations and opposition newspapers were quickly closed down.Tortured, denied medical attention News Follow the news on Uzbekistan May 11, 2021 Find out more Uzbek blogger facing possible 10-year jail term June 11, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist held for 16 years must be freed at once Related documents Uzbekistan PR_11-06-2015_UZPDF – 152.67 KBUzbekistan PR_11-06-2015_RUPDF – 168.26 KB Help by sharing this information UzbekistanEurope – Central Asia News Ўзбек тилида ўқиш / Read in UzbekЧитать по-русски / Read in RussianAs Uzbekistan prepares to receive a visit from UN secretary-general Ban Ki-Moon on 12 June, Reporters Without Borders and the Association for Human Rights in Central Asia call on the authorities to immediately release Muhammad Bekjanov, one of the world’s longest held journalists.Awarded the Reporters Without Borders press freedom prize in 2013, Bekjanov used to edit Uzbekistan’s main opposition newspaper. Married, the father of three children and now aged 60, he has been held for the past 16 years.As the editor of Erk (Freedom) in the early 1990s, Bekjanov tried to start a debate on such taboo subjects as the state of the economy, the use of forced labour for the cotton harvest and the Aral Sea environmental disaster. As result, he became one of the leading bugbears of President Islam Karimov, who was then forging the authoritarian regime he still leads.Karimov took advantage of a series of bombings in Tashkent in 1999 to silence his critics. Like many pro-democracy activists, Bekjanov was tried as an accomplice and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. His sentence was reduced in 2003 but in January 2012, just a few days before he was due to be released, he was sentenced to another four years and eight months in jail on a charge of disobeying prison officials under article 221 of the criminal code.Yusuf Ruzimuradov, a fellow Erk journalist who was arrested at the same time as Bekjanov, is also still being held. February 11, 2021 Find out more News Bekjanov has been repeatedly tortured since his arrest. During the initial investigation, he was beaten all over his body, including the head and ribs, until he lost consciousness. One of his legs was broken during a beating in 2003 but he was denied any medical treatment. He has lost many teeth and much of his hearing as a result of the torture and a serious case of tuberculosis that was left untreated for a long time.When his wife, Nina Bekjanova, visited him in 2014, she noticed that he was suffering from intermittent acute pain as well as permanent discomfort from an inguinal hernia that developed when he was assigned to prison work making bricks. His general condition is one of extreme physical and mental exhaustion.At least eight other journalists are currently detained in connection with their work in Uzbekistan. Many government opponents, human rights defenders and other civil society activists also languish in prison, as do thousands of individuals who are arbitrarily accused of “religious extremism.”The prolonged detention of political prisoners under article 221 of the criminal code is widespread. False testimony is used to convict them, in flagrant violation of their right to due process. Sentences are often extended several times in succession in a manner that is tantamount to life imprisonment.Reporters Without Borders and the Association for Human Rights in Central Asia are sending a copy of this press release to the UN special rapporteur on torture and to the UN special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression.(Photo: Uznews) More than six years in prison for Uzbek blogger who covered corruptionlast_img read more

Babita Puniya & Ors.] In a significant judgment on gender equality, the Supreme Court directed that Permanent Commission should be granted to women in the army regardless of their service, in all the ten streams where the Union Government has already taken a decision to grant Short Service Commission to women. The Court also held that absolute exclusion of women from command assignments is against Article 14 of the Constitution and unjustified. Therefore, the policy that women will be given only “staff appointments” was held to be unenforceable by the Court. Notion That Women Are ‘Weaker Sex’ Constitutionally Flawed: SC Calls For Change In Mindset [The Secretary, Ministry of Defence v. Babita Puniya & Ors.] The notions that women are the “weaker” sex and may not undertake tasks that are “too arduous‟ for them are constitutionally flawed, observed the Supreme Court, in its judgment which held that the absolute exclusion of women from Command Appointments In Army is Illegal. The bench comprising Justice Dhananjaya Y. Chandrachud and Justice Ajay Rastogi observed that to cast aspersion on their abilities on the ground of gender is an affront not only to their dignity as women but to the dignity of the members of the Indian Army – men and women – who serve as equal citizens in a common mission. Parental Responsibility Does Not End With Breakdown Of Marriage: SC [Soumitra Kumar Nahar v. Parul Nahar] The Supreme Court has observed that the parental responsibility of the couple does not end even if there is a breakdown of the marriage. In a custody battle, no matter which parent wins but the child is always the loser and it is the children who pay the heaviest price as they are shattered when the Court by its judicial process tells them to go with the parent whom he or she deems, remarked the bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Ajay Rastogi while considering a civil appeal in a matrimonial case.Right To Pension Cannot Be Taken Away By A Mere Executive Fiat Or Administrative Instruction [Dr. Hira Lal v. State of Bihar & Ors.] The Supreme Court has observed that the right to pension is covered under a right to property protected under Article 300A of the Constitution of India and it cannot be taken away by a mere executive fiat or administrative instruction. The issue considered by the bench comprising Justices Uday Umesh Lalit and Indu Malhotra in this appeal was whether the State of Bihar was justified in withholding 10% pension and full gratuity of its employee under Circulars, and Government Resolution issued by it, on the ground of pending criminal proceedings?SC Collegium Recommendations Must Be Continuing Process Without Waiting For Results Of Earlier Lists [M/s Plr Projects Pvt. Ltd v. Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd & Ors.] The Supreme Court observed that the High Courts should continuously recommend names for judicial appointments in anticipation of vacancies, regardless of the pendency of the earlier recommendations. A bench comprising Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph said that there should be a “continuing process” of recommending names without waiting for the results of earlier recommendations.Judicial Officers Cannot Seek Direct Recruitment To Post Of District Judges Against Quota For Advocates [Dheeraj Mor v. Hon’ble High Court of Delhi] The Supreme Court held that civil judges are not eligible to seek direct recruitment to post of District Judges in bar quota. Eligibility under Article 233(2) of the Constitution requires 7 years of continuous practice. “Only practising candidates can avail the quota. It is exclusively for them”, Justice Arun Mishra, dictating the order, said. “Article 233(2) nowhere provides eligibility of in-­service candidates for consideration as a District Judge concerning a post requiring 7 years’ practise as an advocate or a pleader. The requirement of 7 years’ experience for advocate or pleader is qualified with a rider that he should not be in the service of the Union or the State”, the Court said in the judgment.Electricity Supply Cannot Be Disconnected For Recovery Of Additional Demand Raised After Expiry Of Two Years Limitation Period [Assistant Engineer (D1), Ajmer Vidyut Vitran Nigam Ltd. & Anr. v. Rahmatullah Khan] The Supreme Court held that the licensee company cannot take recourse to the coercive measure of disconnection of electricity supply, for recovery of the additional demand raised after the expiry of two years limitation period. The bench of Justices Uday Umesh Lalit and Indu Malhotra observed that the Section 56(2) of the Electricity Act does not preclude the licensee company from raising an additional or supplementary demand after the expiry of the limitation period under Section 56(2) in the case of a mistake or bona fide error.Practicing Advocates’ Experience Gained At Bar Injects Judicial Branch With Fresh Perspectives [Dheeraj Mor v. Hon’ble High Court of Delhi] In the judgment holding that in-service judicial officers are not eligible to apply for direct recruitment to the post of District Judges, the Supreme Court observed that the experience of a successful lawyer at the bar cannot be considered as less important than that of a judicial officer. Quoting from the SC decision in P. Ramakrishnan Raju v. Union of India and Ors., (2014) the Court said that “experience and knowledge gained by a successful lawyer at the Bar can never be considered to be less important from any point of view vis­à­vis the experience gained by a judicial officer”. Magistrate Can Review Order Passed Under Sec 125 CrPC; Bar Under Sec 362 CrPC Not Applicable [Ranjeev Kapoor v. Chandra Kapoor & Ors.] The Supreme Court held that a Magistrate who passes an order on settlement between parties under Section 125 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) has the power to recall or set aside the Order if terms of the same are violated, and Section 362 of CrPC does not function as a bar on the same. The Bench comprising of Justices Ashok Bhushan and R. Subhash Reddy took into consideration the legislative scheme behind the promulgation of Section 362 of the CrPC by breaking down the Section.PNB Scam – Powers Under Sec 339 Companies Act Can Be Invoked Only Against Officers Of Company In Which Mismanagement Is Alleged [Usha Ananthasubramanian v. Union of India] In the PNB-Nirav Modi scam, the Supreme Court granted relief to Usha Ananthasubramanian, former MD & CEO of Punjab National Bank, by setting aside the order passed by NCLT by which her assets were frozen. In the case regarding mismanagement of Gitanjali Gems Ltd run by Nirav Modi, the National Company Law Tribunal had passed an order restraining several individuals, including Usha Ananthasubramanian, from disposing of their assets and from withdrawing more than One Lakh rupees per month towards personal expenses. This order passed exercising powers under Section 241 read with 337 and 339 of the Companies Act 2013 was approved by NCLAT as well. Marriage Contracted During Pendency Of Appeal From A Divorce Decree Filed After Expiry Of Limitation Period Is Not Void [Krishnaveni Rai v. Pankaj Rain & Anr.] The Supreme Court observed that a marriage contracted during the pendency of an appeal from a divorce decree is not ab initio void especially when such an appeal is filed after expiry of the period of limitation. In this case, a maintenance petition filed by a wife was dismissed on the grounds that the marriage was a nullity because the marriage had taken place while an appeal filed by her against a decree of dissolution of marriage with her first husband was still pending. The issue considered by the Apex Court was whether the second marriage performed during the pendency of an appeal from a decree of divorce a nullity, even though there was no stay of operation of the decree.SC Upholds Introduction Of NEET To AYUSH Under Graduate Courses [Union of India v. Federation of Self-Financed Ayurvedic Colleges Punjab & Ors.] The Supreme Court has upheld All-India National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (‘NEET’) for admission to AYUSH Under Graduate courses like BAMS, BUMS, BSMS and BHMS. The bench comprising Justice L. Nageswara Rao and Justice Deepak Gupta also observed that the minimum standards cannot be lowered even for AYUSH courses. The bench also referred to the judgment in Veterinary Council of India v. Indian Council of Agricultural Research in which it was held that the Veterinary Council of India is authorized to frame regulations prescribing the standards of veterinary education and such power includes the power to make Regulations relating to grant of admissions and veterinary qualifications. [Electricity]Fixing Of Commercial Tariff For Self-Financed Educational Institutions Legally Valid [KSEB & Anr. v. Principal Sir Syed Institute For Technical Studies & Anr.] The Supreme Court held that clubbing of Self-financed educational institutions (SFEIs) with commercial service providers for the purposes of fixing electricity tariffs higher than Government-run & aided educational institutions was legally justifiable in terms of the Electricity Act, 2003 (“2003 Act”). The central issue in the instant case was whether under the 2003 Act, the differentiation of SFEIs from the other set of educational institutions for the purpose of fixing of the tariff was arbitrary discrimination and antithetical to principles of natural justice. Rendered by a Bench of Justices Deepak Gupta & Aniruddha Bose, the Judgment held that a tariff fixing body was not required to proceed solely on the basis of the “nature of service” rendered by the Institution while fixing tariffs.  Rebuttal Of Presumption U/s 139 NI Act Can Only Be Done After Adducing Evidence [Shiv Kumar Alias Jawahar Saraf v. Ramavatar Agarwal] The Supreme Court observed that the rebuttal of presumption available under Section 139 of the Negotiable Instruments Act can only be done after adducing evidence. The bench of Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice KM Joseph agreed with the High Court view that rebuttal of presumption cannot be looked into at the stage of the Court taking cognizance of the offense. Expressing its ‘full agreement’ with the view adopted by the High Court, the bench added that the rebuttal can be made with reference to the evidence of the prosecution as well as of defence.[Section 340 CrPC] Is Preliminary Inquiry Mandatory Before A Complaint U/s 195 CrPC Is Made? SC Refers To Larger Bench [Read Judgment] The Supreme Court referred to a larger bench the issue whether Section 340 of the Code of Criminal Procedure mandates a preliminary inquiry and an opportunity of hearing to the would-be accused before a complaint is made under Section 195 of the Code by a Court? The bench of Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice Mohan M. Shantanagoudar also referred the question on the scope and ambit of such preliminary inquiry. Mortgage By A Corporate Debtor To Secure Debts Of Third Party Not ‘Financial Debt’ Within Meaning Of Sec 5(8) IBC : SC The Supreme Court upheld the order of National Company Law Tribunal which cancelled the mortgages made by Jaypee Infratech Ltd (JIL) to secure the debts of its holding company Jaiprakash Associates Ltd (JAL). The NCLT Ahmedabad bench had allowed the application filed by Interim Resolution Professional(appointed for JIL CIRP) seeking avoidance of these mortgage transactions, which pertained to nearly 758 acres of land, as being “preferential, undervalued and fraudulent”, in terms of Sections 43, 45 and 66 of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016.Case Details Title : Anuj Jain Interim Resolution Professional for Jaypee Infratech Ltd v Axis Bank Ltd and others Case No : Civil Appeals No. 8512-8527 of 2019 Coram : Justices A M Khanwilkar and Dinesh MaheshwariJudicial Officer’s Integrity Must Be Of A Higher Order And Even A Single Aberration Is Not Permitted: SC [Read Judgment]The Supreme Court summed up the law on the subject of compulsory retirement of Judicial officers.

Nageswara Rao and Deepak Gupta observed that ‘washed off’ theory does not apply in the case of adverse entries with regard to integrity of Judicial Officers.Case name: ARUN KUMAR GUPTA vs. STATE OF JHARKHAND Case no.: WRIT PETITION (CIVIL) NO. 190 OF 2018 Coram: Justices L. Nageswara Rao and Deepak GuptaBoycott Of Courts Can’t Be Justified As Freedom Of Speech & Expression : SC On Lawyers’ Strikes The Supreme Court came down heavily on the advocates in the districts of Dehradun, Hardwar and Udham Singh Nagar in the State of Uttarakhand for holding strike by boycotting courts. The SC also noted that despite directions in precedents such as Ex-Capt. Harish Uppal v. Union of India, lawyers’ strikes were happening.

Nair against the rejection of election petition by the Kerala High Court, the Supreme Court observed that the election petition filed by her was not maintainable as she faced disqualification due to conviction.The bench comprising CJI SA Bobde, Justice AS Bopanna and V. Ramasubramanian held that mere suspension of the execution of the sentence is not sufficient to take the rigour out of Section 8(3) of Representation of the People Act, 1951. The court, however, observed that the High Court was wrong in rejecting the election petition on the ground of existence of incurable of defects.The nomination filed by Saritha S. Nair, a prme accused in the Kerala’s solar scam scandal, was rejected on the ground that she was convicted in 2 criminal cases. MP Hibi Eden was elected from Ernakulam constituency. After the elections, she filed an election petition contending that the rejection of her nomination was illegal and unjustified. She contended that, she had simultaneously filed a nomination in the Amethi Constituency of Uttar Pradesh and that despite disclosure of the very same information about her conviction and pendency of appeals, her nomination was accepted there and therefore so long as the sentence of imprisonment remained suspended, the disqualification under Section 8(3) of the Representation of the People Act, 1951, may not be attracted.The High Court dismissed the election petition on the ground that:  (i) that it contained incurable defects; and (ii) that in any case, the petitioner admittedly suffered from a disqualification. On the ‘conviction’ issue, the Court noted that, Section 8(3) of the Representation of People Act deals with two aspects namely: (i) the conditions for disqualification; and (ii) the period of disqualification. The conditions for disqualification are: (i) conviction for any offence other than an offence referred to in Subsections (1) and (2); and (ii) sentence of imprisonment for not less than two years.”In so far as the period of disqualification is concerned, Section 8(3) says that the disqualification will commence from the date of conviction. This is made clear by the usage of the words “shall be disqualified from the date of such conviction”. It is needless to state that the words “the date” appearing in Section 8(3) refers to the event of conviction and it is post facto. The disqualification which commences from the date of conviction, continues till the expiry of a period of six years from the date of his release. In other words, the date of conviction is what determines the date of commencement of the period of disqualification. However, it is date of release which determines the date on which the disqualification will cease to have effect.. When viewed in that context, it will be clear that the mere suspension of the execution of the sentence is not sufficient to take the rigour out of Section 8(3).”The court observed that disqualification under Section 8(3) will continue so long as there is no stay of conviction. The mere suspension of the execution of the sentence is not sufficient to take the rigour out of Section 8(3), the Court said to reject Saritha Nair’s contention that her nomination ought to have been accepted as her sentence was suspended.While dismissing the SLP, the court said:”We hold that the petitioner was disqualified from contesting the elections in terms of Section 8(3) of the Act. In such circumstances, she could not have maintained an election petition as “a candidate at such election” in terms of Section 32 81(1). Therefore, the High Court was right in not venturing into an exercise in futility, by taking up the election petition for trial, though the High Court was wrong in rejecting the election petition on the ground of existence of incurable of defects”The Court, however, observed that the defects in the verification and prayer made by the petitioner were curable and an opportunity ought to have been given to the petitioner to cure the defects. “The procedure adopted by the High Court of Kerala cannot be approved. The High Court was wrong in thinking that the defective verification of the election petition was a pointer to the game plan of the election petitioner to disown the pleadings at a later stage, especially after making serious allegations against the former Chief Minister. If only the High Court had given an opportunity to the petitioner to cure the defects in the verification and if, despite such an opportunity, the petitioner had failed to come up with a proper verification, the High Court could have then held the petitioner guilty of playing hide and seek. The failure of the High Court to give an opportunity to cure the defects is improper.”, the court said.
