CUPW requests mediator as deadline for Canada Post offer expires without deal

first_imgOTTAWA — The Canadian Union of Postal Workers issued a request Saturday for the federal government to appoint a mediator in its contract talks with Canada Post, as it rejected the Crown corporation’s latest offers.Canada Post issued new, time sensitive, proposals last week aimed at reaching agreements with its approximately 42,000 urban employees and 8,000 rural and suburban carriers.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau weighed in Saturday night with a last-minute plea to the two sides, just hours before the midnight deadline on the Crown corporation’s offers expired. In a Twitter post, Trudeau cited the arrival of the holiday shopping season and urged both sides “to resolve their differences quickly and reach a deal.”But as the deadline on the offers passed, CUPW issued a statement that said it had responded “by presenting the Corporation with our own global offers that address our needs and demands.”The union also said that it had asked the government to appoint a mediator to help the two sides reach an accord after nearly a year of talks, adding “We believe that our proposals can be the basis of collective agreements.”CUPW had said on Friday that the new proposals from Canada Post made positive steps, but not enough to end the rotating strikes that have shut down postal operations in more than 200 communities, creating a huge backlog of undelivered mail. It said it would not bring the offers to a vote of its members, although both sides remained at the bargaining table.On Saturday the Retail Council of Canada urged Ottawa to “bring an immediate end” to the rotating strikes through back-to-work legislation.“Just as retail merchants, our workforce of two million and our customers enter the busiest time of year, the postal system is grinding to a near-halt,” council president Diane Brisebois wrote in a letter to Trudeau.Earlier in the week, eBay called on the government to legislate an end to the dispute in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales events tied to the American Thanksgiving.Trudeau said last week that “all options” would be on the table to end postal disruptions if there was no progress in bargaining.A government source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said decisions on how to end the job action by postal workers could come as early as Sunday, adding that “‘all the options’ does include legislating.” The Canadian Presslast_img read more

46 Indian kids die of communicable diseases

first_imgCommunicable diseases like pneumonia and tuberculosis accounted for over 46 per cent of preventable deaths in children aged 5-14 years in 2016, finds a study. In 2016, India had about 74,000 preventable or treatable deaths from communicable diseases, representing nearly half of all the annual deaths and over a third of all deaths in the four developing countries – India, China, Brazil and Mexico – in children aged 5-14 years. In India, death rates from these communicable diseases as well as vaccine-preventable diseases were nearly 20 times higher than in China, and 10 times higher than in Brazil and Mexico, showed the findings published in The Lancet journal. “Most of these deaths are avoidable and for those caused by medical conditions, many of them are treatable,” said a Professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. Also Read – An income drop can harm brain”Death in children aged 5-14 should be rare around the world. With cost-effective, feasible and affordable interventions, substantial declines in deaths in this age group are possible,” he added. The study examined data on around 2.5 lakh deaths in children aged 5-14 years from 2005 to 2016 in India, China, Brazil and Mexico. These countries are home to about 40 per cent of the world’s children aged 5-14 years and experience more than two lakh deaths annually at these ages. Marked declines in the communicable disease mortality among girls narrowed the gap with boys in India and China. However, mortality rates for non-communicable diseases and injury were found to be still higher in India than in China, Mexico, and Brazil.last_img read more

BJP insulting Ram by using his name for polls Abhishek

first_imgKushmandi (South Dinajpur): Trinamool Youth Congress president Abhishek Banerjee said BJP is insulting Ram, as his name is being used by the party in a bid to win elections.Addressing a meeting here on Thursday afternoon, Banerjee said: “BJP is insulting Ram by using his name to win elections. Before the election BJP promises to construct Ram temple and forgets it after the election gets over,” he said, adding: “BJP shouts Jai Sri Ram before conducting riots. There are blood stains on their hands.” Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaBanerjee said as BJP does not do any work, the party has no other alternative but to use religion to win polls. “Religion is private and in social life, work is the only religion. BJP uses religion to divide people and incite people belonging to one religion against the other,” he added. Banerjee said at a time when the entire country is suffering from acute economic crisis, Narendra Modi is spending Rs 3,000 crore to construct the statue of unity and crores more on his foreign trips. He alleged that Modi’s “Make in India” is a big hoax. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway”Modi is encouraging the sale of Chinese products. The bullet train has been brought from Japan and he himself uses a German vehicle,” he said, adding: “Earlier, Modi used to sell tea by holding a kettle and now he is selling the country with Jaitley besides him.” Addressing first-time voters, Banerjee said: “Before casting your vote you should think about the consequences of note ban and GST. The poor people are yet to come out of the shock of note ban. Thousands of people have lost their jobs. Twelve thousand farmers have committed suicide. The hasty implementation of GST has affected traders and small businessmen badly. Modi has not said a single word on the issue and is instead making false promises before the elections.” The Trinamool Youth Congress president said BJP workers and leaders can only be seen before the elections, whereas Trinamool workers and leaders stay beside people throughout the year. “People know that Trinamool leaders and workers will always stand beside them during distress. BJP leaders are like seasonal birds, they go when the season is over,” he said. Banerjee said Trinamool candidate Arpita Ghosh, who is the sitting MP from Balurghat, will win the election by 2 lakh votes. “I can feel the pulse of the people and can assure you that Ghosh will win by 2 lakh votes,” he said, requesting voters to go to the polling stations early in the day to exercise their franchise. Balurghat will go to polls on April 23.last_img read more

Ohio State dodgeball team set to host national tournament

A national tournament is coming to Ohio State. The sport involves throwing a round ball. If you guessed baseball, you’re wrong.The Ohio State club dodgeball team is set to host the sport’s national tournament at the RPAC Saturday and Sunday.Ohio State (6-5) is a founding member of the National Collegiate Dodgeball Association, which started in 2002. OSU has attended every national tournament and has two championships, 2005 and 2006.The Buckeyes have played in three tournaments so far this season including the Round Robin tournament at OSU, the Redhawk invitational at the University of Miami University (Ohio), and the Ohio Dodgeball Cup at Kent State University.Jeff Starr, a second-year engineering student and club dodgeball member said OSU should have won more games this year and that the team is better than its record reflects. He is expecting a good result this weekend at nationals.“I think that we will actually do amazing,” Starr said. “We’ve been really close with a lot of the top teams and a lot of those tournaments, we didn’t have all of our guys. We weren’t all 100 percent. I think everyone is going to be ready to go, 100 percent.”Currently there are between 25 and 30 active members, coach, and OSU alumnus, Jude DuPart said.DuPart said not all members travel to tournaments because of midterms or scheduling conflicts, which is the reason some teams play more matches than other teams.“It really varies on how much traveling you can do. So the teams up in Michigan that are a stone’s throw away … there’s four teams up there that are all about two hours to 30 minutes away from each other,” DuPart said.DuPart said the biggest benefit of having the tournament at home is getting more players involved.“We’ll definitely be able to see a lot more kids get out there and play,” DuPart said. “A lot of kids have other obligations and can’t make the travel commitments to be able to play and see a large competitive style game.”Aside from not having to travel, Starr said another advantage of hosting the national tournament in Columbus comes with team members having the comfort of sleeping in their own beds.“Last year, we were sleeping on a motel floor, so having our own beds will be nice,” Starr said.OSU team captain Josh Connor, a second-year in logistics management, agreed with Starr that home court advantage is a big deal, especially in a big tournament.“With any sport you’re playing in, having the crowd behind you will win you the momentum. Having your friends and family behind you goes a long way,” Connor said.Starr added it’ll be nice to hear cheers for the home team.“We definitely get a lot more home fans cheering for us and not for the other teams, that’ll help,” Starr said.DuPart said OSU finished fourth in the national tournament last year. This year he is hopeful for a good result despite the more experienced teams.“Despite being a younger squad I think we’ve picked up (play) well. We’re looking pretty good,” DuPart said. “I do think there are a lot more mature teams and a lot of other teams that play pretty well, especially Grand Valley and Kent (State) is looking good this year.”Connor expects to do better at nationals than last year with a young but confident squad.“We had a pretty good season last year, I think we’re going to do better than that,” Connor said. “We’ve grown a lot, I can speak for myself I’ve become a lot more aggressive and that carries across the board. I think we have a lot more guys who feel comfortable. I think the camaraderie is even strong than it was.”The tournament is set to begin Saturday with group play from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the lower RPAC courts. It continues Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with single elimination tournament style play. read more
