Medical couriers at The Doctors Laboratory vote in favour of pay deal

first_imgMedical couriers employed by pathology services provider The Doctors Laboratory (TDL) and who are members of the trade union the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain (IWGB), have voted in favour of a new pay deal, applicable for couriers who are classified either as workers or as employees.TDL employs couriers that are defined as either employees or as limb (b) workers, a category of self-employment that entitles workers to employment rights, such as the minimum wage and holiday pay.The deal enables those on worker status to choose whether they want to be paid per hour rather than per delivery, to increase pay security, and provides an additional payment of 20p to 40p per mile, depending on the vehicle, to help cover travel expenses.Couriers classified as employees will receive an employer-provided push bike, motorbike or van, with a fuel card to cover petrol costs, while night shifts performed between 10.00pm and 7.00am will be paid at an enhanced rate of pay, set 12.5% higher than employees’ normal day rate.The agreed deal further guarantees that couriers’ working hours will not be cut as a result of the new contracts being implemented, that TDL will review the deal in six months’ time and that the organisation will introduce annual pay reviews.The pay offer is a result of strike action undertaken by IWGB members employed by TDL in May 2019; industrial action was also scheduled for 25 and 26 June 2019, but this has now been cancelled.In June 2017, TDL was found to have wrongly classified its couriers as independent, self-employed contractors; affected staff were not able to access the rights employees’ are entitled to, such as the minimum wage and holiday pay.Correctly identifying couriers as employees enabled IWGB to create a collective bargaining unit in order to negotiate on pay; this covers all couriers, including walkers, push bike couriers, motorbike riders and van drivers. This was secured in spring 2018 after a ruling by the Central Arbitration Committee.Couriers at TDL deliver emergency blood and pathology samples to more than 30 NHS hospitals situated in London and the South East, as well as some private hospitals and clinics.IWGB is also representing 45 couriers at TDL in a holiday pay claim, which is being heard by the Central London Employment Tribunal next week.Alex Marshall, couriers and logistics branch chair at IWGB and courier at TDL, said: “After a grueling campaign, we have managed to drag TDL to the negotiating table and agree on a deal that gives us some security when it comes to our earnings.“Through our organising effort of the last two years, we have also managed to transform the workplace and stop the chronic bullying that was previously so common. This victory shows that by staying united and campaigning together, it is possible to reverse the race to the bottom inherent in the business models of so many so-called ‘gig economy’ employers.”A spokesperson from TDL said: “We were pleased the IWGB agreed to return to the table earlier this month. Discussions were productive and we were able to renegotiate TDL’s original pay offer and reach an agreement that works for both parties.“Our couriers are valued members of our workforce and we look forward to open communication and positive working relationships in the future.”last_img read more

Crocodile captured by officials after venturing into Pinecrest neighborhood

first_imgOfficials added this is the fifth crocodile captured in Florida this year.Follow these links for more information on crocodiles in Florida:Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. PINECREST, Fla. (WSVN) — A crocodile roundup surprised residents, Friday, after the scaly visitor made a rare appearance in a Pinecrest neighborhood.Residents who called local officials assumed they were near an alligator, not a crocodile. Crocodiles are a rarity in Florida, with only about 1,200 left in the Sunshine State.The 8-foot-reptile was spotted roaming down Red Road, at around 5:30 a.m., by a resident. Neighbors said the crocodile is one of the two that are often seen in a canal in Gables by the Sea. “The good thing is that it didn’t come through our backyard because that would have been a lot worse,” said Ferdinand Kurt. “I don’t know how he got out there, but there he was.”Trapper Tood Hardwick worked to exhaust the crocodile, which successfully led to its capture. “Thank God, I didn’t see it,” said Rizwan Ali. “I would have freaked out. At least someone did, and I’m glad it’s captured.”This isn’t the first time a crocodile has been spotted in this neighborhood. In 2014, two people decided to go for a late night swim until a crocodile bit them. Both survived, and the animal was eventually captured.Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer Lorenzo Veloz offered more advice for those in this situation. “Keep your distance and observe,” said Veloz. “Don’t mess with them. They don’t like to be bothered, and, of course, safety is key. The further you are away from them, the safer you’re going to be.”On hot and sticky days, crocodiles venture out of the water and onto land, wildlife officials said, especially during mating season. last_img read more

City Officials Deliver State Of Kenai Address

first_imgGovernor Mike Dunleavy introduced legislation to end commercial fish tax revenue that is shared among fishing communities, like the City of Kenai. Ostrander: “It’s really going to be an open conversation with the community about what services are most important to them. But, one component we are going to have is live polling where we actually will be asking the people who show up what is most important to them.” As the City of Kenai begins the 2020 budget planning, Kenai City Manager Paul Ostrander explained that the City of Kenai will be hosting a community meeting, Invest in Kenai, on March 12 to talk with community members about the upcoming budget process and city services and projects. In years past the City of Kenai has been able to depend on capital credits to fund city capital projects. Between 2011 and 2015 the city received upward of $4 to $6.5 million dollars. In recent years from 2016 to 2018 capital grants from the state have been at zero. Kenai City Manager Paul Ostrander and Kenai Mayor Brian Gabriel discussed the current local economic condition, progress on capital projects, and city finances. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Officials with the City of Kenai delivered the State of Kenai address at a Kenai Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Wednesday. Kenai Mayor Brian Gabriel expressed concern with the proposed state budget, but stresses optimism: “We’ve got some good news, we’ve got some investment that’s happening within the city. We’ve got challenges there is not doubt about it, and when the Dunleavy administration unveiled his budget there were some gasps with the level of reductions, so we will see where that ends up in the legislature.”  Ostrander: “The City of Kenai receives revenues on the landings between the municipal boundaries every year. It varies depending on the catch and the price, it’s rolling average over the previous two seasons. The City of Kenai gets anywhere from $150,000-$220,000 a year. Those revenues are going to need to be made up through some other type of tax, or in a modification of services. Those funds go directly into our general fund which provides funds for our police, fire, streets, all the services that we provide to our residents.”  The meeting is open to the public and will take place at 6pm, at the Kenai Senior Center.last_img read more

Putin offered to support Venezuela in case of war with Colombia book

first_imgDuring a moment of peak tensions between Colombia and Venezuela, Vladimir Putin told the late Hugo Chávez to count on his support if war broke out, according to a new biography of José Mujica, the popular ex-Uruguayan president who was close to his Venezuelan counterpart.Then president Chávez told Mujica that the Russian president had offered to advise him in the conflict, providing information about Colombia’s military arsenal and the types of Russian hardware he could send to counter it, the book claims.Since its publication in May, “Una Oveja Negra al Poder” (A Black Sheep in Power), has created a buzz in Latin America for its purported revelations about Mujica’s relationships with Chávez, Brazilian ex-president Luis Ignácio “Lula” da Silva and Cuba’s Raúl and Fidel Castro, among other Latin American leftist icons.The book’s authors, two Uruguayan journalists who have tracked Mujica’s political career for two decades, do not make the claim that Putin offered to intervene with Russian troops on Venezuela’s behalf, but they say he told Chávez, “You can count on my advice for whatever you need.” (Courtesy Amazon.com)Venezuela and Colombia’s shared border is one of South America’s busiest crossings, but it has also been one of the region’s most frequent friction points. Colombian FARC rebels operate on both sides of the boundary, and ex-president Álvaro Uribe — Chávez’s nemesis — often accused the Venezuelan government of turning a blind eye to their presence, or lending them its clandestine support.At one point in 2008, after a Colombian airstrike on a FARC camp in Ecuador, Chávez sent troops to the border and warned Uribe not to attempt a similar attack in Venezuela. On several occasions, Chávez ordered the Venezuelan Embassy in Bogotá closed, and the two countries briefly severed relations in 2010, renewing fears of war.Though fighting never broke out, Chávez acquired billions of dollars worth of Russian arms during the 14 years he was president prior to his death from cancer in 2013, including fighter jets, anti-aircraft missiles and 100,000 Kalashnikov rifles.Uribe, Colombia’s president between 2002 and 2010, was Chávez’s principal foreign adversary and verbal sparring partner. A close U.S. ally, Uribe was a major beneficiary of the more than $9 billion in security aid that Washington has provided since 2000 through “Plan Colombia.”“A Black Sheep in Power” contains other colorful anecdotes about Mujica, 80, a former Marxist guerrilla who spent 15 years in prison before going on to win Uruguay’s presidency in 2009. His famously austere lifestyle, rumpled appearance and plainspoken manner endeared him to many in Latin America and beyond.As president, Mujica insisted on remaining in his tiny, modest home, donated most of his salary to charity and often drove himself to work in his old VW beetle, occasionally stopping to pick up hitchhikers on the way. His five-year term ended in March.The book also features blunt criticism Mujica allegedly shared with his friend Chávez about the Venezuelan leader’s grand vision of an oil-rich socialist society. “I warned him from the beginning that he wasn’t going to end up building socialism,” the book quotes Mujica as saying. “And he didn’t build [crap].”When Mujica appeared at the Buenos Aires book fair last month to promote “Black Sheep,” he was greeted like a football star by a packed auditorium, even though he showed up an hour late.Miroff is a Latin America correspondent for The Washington Post, roaming from the U.S.-Mexico borderlands to South America’s southern cone.

New inbound travel data reveals top countries travelling to Australia

first_imgBANGKOK, THAILAND NEW YORK, UNITED STATES 8 HONG KONG, CHINA 7 KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA New inbound travel data reveals top countries travelling to AustraliaSIX of the top ten cities outside of Asia Pacific (APAC) which are travelling to Australia for business are US cities, according to data from American Express Global Business Travel (GBT).Australia’s strong business ties to the U.S., particularly San Francisco and New York, continue to remain a key travel driver. In addition a weaker Australian dollar has increased tourism to Australia and resulted in greater connectivity, further enabling business travel.The travel destination data, which encompasses all air bookings made globally through American Express GBT between March 2016 and February 2017 for travel to Australia, provides a robust snapshot of business travel flows into the country.  Singapore remains the top city of origin within Asia Pacific, and London outside the region. The Singapore, Auckland and Hong Kong ranking’s as the top three origins for business travel mirror perfectly with Australia’s outbound business travel destinations.“Amidst all the commentary regarding the impact of U.S. and U.K. politics and changes in regulations, there has not been a noticeable impact on business travel between the U.S and Australia,” said Jo Sully, Vice President and General Manager, American Express Global Business Travel, Australia. “Considering the high number of multinational organisations operating in Australia, the need for travel between the U.S. and Australia is unlikely to be affected in any meaningful way in the immediate future. We have, however, seen a greater demand for up-to-the-minute information from companies as they navigate through changing regulations and policies”.“That being said, it will be interesting to see how current global political conditions impact international business travel related to meetings and events. When large groups are required to travel for a conference or other large-scale event, issues such as the recent travel bans and electronic devices bans in the U.S. may drive people to consider alternative destinations. If Australia continues to position itself as a welcome destination for busines travellers, there is scope for us to benefit from a rise in meetings and events spend and business traveller tourism dollars.”Asia Pacific remains the focusCities within APAC make up the majority of the top ten visiting Australia for business, with proximity playing a factor. Unsuprisingly, London is the highest ranked destination outside of APAC, followed by New York. New Zealand and Australia maintain traditional business links, with particular demand coming from the technology, services and consulting sectors.  These sectors also feature heavily in travel between Australia and Hong Kong, in addition to the financial services sector.

Lenders Step Up as June Closings Rise

first_img While the time it took to close a loan in June increased just slightly from the previous month, the closing rate reached a record high of 61 percent, according to Ellie Mae’s Origination Insight Report.Among loans originated 90 days before the report, 60.7 percent closed in June, the report states. This is up from 57.8 percent in May.”Clearly, lenders are working harder than ever to convert and close loans,” said Jonathan Corr, president and COO of Ellie Mae.However, the time it takes to close a loan is on the rise. After three months of increases, the number of days it took to approve a loan closed in June was 41 days. Despite the monthly increases, though, loans are closing faster than last year, when it took 47 days to close a loan.Refinance loans closed in June took an average of 39 days to close, while purchase loans took 42 days to close.The market continues to be dominated by purchase loans, although the share of purchase loans did tick down slightly over the month of June, from 66 percent in May to 65 percent in June.Corr attributes the slight decline to a dip in interest rates, which could have spurred more refinances and “may also have prompted more borrowers to select 30-year fixed rate mortgages, which may be why the percentage of 15-year loans hit lowest points for the year last month.”The average interest rate for a 30-year loan in June was 4.42 percent, down from 4.53 percent in May.Approved loans continue to go to applicants with high FICO scores. For loans closed in June, applicants had an average FICO score of 728, up slightly from 727 in May but down significantly from an average of 738 over the year last year.However, close to one-third of loans closed in June—32 percent—had FICO scores under 700. This is unchanged from last June.Loan-to-value ratios on closed loans have held steady so far this year at 82 percent, and debt-to-income ratio has remained the same since March at 24/37, according to Ellie Mae.Denied loans in June had lower FICO scores and higher debt-to-income ratios than approved loans, but loan-to-value ratios were the same. FICO scores for loans denied in June averaged 686. Debt-to-income ratios for denied loans averaged 28/45. in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, News, Origination Credit Standards Ellie Mae Origination Insights Purchase Loans Refinances 2014-07-18 Krista Franks Brock July 18, 2014 578 Views center_img Lenders Step Up as June Closings Rise Sharelast_img read more

The DailyDose Who is the most underrated head coach heading into

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix As the owner of FootballScoop for about seven years now, I’ve had the good fortune of meeting many, if not most, all the head coaches across the country and there are plenty that I would be excited about sending my own kids to go play for, but one of the absolute best young guys in the profession is Coach Fitz at Northwestern.Fitz was thrust into the job at an early age and has done nothing but get better as a head coach, despite having to deal with certain political situations that come along with being the head coach at a place as academically prestigious as Northwestern. Fitz has done extremely well handling those unique situations, in addition to handling all of the on the field stuff that come with being a coach in the Big Ten.Fitzgerald is also universally respected by current and former players, teammates, and coaches he has coached with and against, which is increasingly rare in college football today. Being such a high academic institution, located in the heart of Big Ten country, Fitz has been a tremendous leader of Northwestern athletics and, in my opinion, he doesn’t get the credit he deserves.I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Pete Lembo as another coach who I also strongly consider underrated heading into 2015. Lembo is a tremendous teacher and mentor of young men, and I have no doubt he’ll be an outstanding head coach in the decades to come.Doug’s choice: Minnesota head coach Jerry KillBefore Jerry Kill and his staff resurrected the Minnesota program, the Golden Gophers were a mere afterthought in the larger Big Ten picture. Now, just five years after taking over, Kill has led the program to back-to-back 8-5 seasons and three straight bowl games – and that’s only a small part of the reason I think he’s the most underrated coach in the country heading into 2015.The staff that Kill has put in place also played a large role in my selection of him. After missing (or being limited) to a few games the last few seasons as he battled health issues, defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys stepped into the acting head coach role and the team never skipped a beat. Many of Kill’s assistants have been with him a decade or longer, and that doesn’t happen unless everyone is one the same page.As a head coach, you’re only as good as the men you surround yourself with, and Kill has surrounded himself with guys that his players believe in, that can coach alongside the best of them, and most importantly, all of them are also good people.@FootballScoop @CoachSamz I’ve been lucky enough to play for two great men. Tom O’Brien and Jerry Kill are great coaches but better people.— Chris Hawthorne (@CHawthorne36) April 21, 2015Zach’s choice: Rice head coach David BailiffI said it a week ago, but it bears repeating: David Bailiff is a coaching wizard. The man coaches at a private school in a pro sports town – and when Houston does turn its attention toward the college game, his Owls must stand in line behind the Big 12, the SEC and the Cougars across town. Rice is an outlier in its own conference, a small, private school in a league otherwise filled with large, public schools. Rice benefits from perhaps the most fertile recruiting soil in the country, but he must compete with 11 other in-state FBS programs plus cherry-pickers from the SEC and Big Ten. His stadium is also the wrong kind of historic.And yet, all the man does is win. Bailiff has led the Owls to three straight bowl games, a feat never before accomplished in school history. In fact, Rice had only posted one run of back-to-back bowl trips in school history before his current run, way back in 1960-61. Rice is 25-15 over the past three seasons with one Conference USA championship and two bowl victories. And it doesn’t hurt Bailiff is a well-respected, well-liked coach that runs a clean program off the field. Yesterday we started a new daily feature called the Daily Dose, in which the FootballScoop staff fires off with an individual opinion on one question per day.Today’s question: Who is the most underrated head coach in the country heading into 2015?Scott’s choice: Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgeraldlast_img read more
