Garry Murchison, Steve Kirschbaum, Andre Francois, Steve GillisThe ruling class of Boston has tried everything to bust the school bus drivers union, United Steelworkers Local 8751. They brought in the global union-busting behemoth corporation Veolia in 2013. Veolia locked out the workers in October of that year and then fired four of the union leaders in November. The courts are now being used to go after the union’s grievance chair and founder, Steve Kirschbaum.Along with the war against this political, social union is another war — on its contract. The wages, rights and benefits the union won over 40 years are the envy of the industry.For over a year, a campaign waged to rehire the four has attracted significant national support from labor, Palestinian solidarity activists and others.The last week in February saw perhaps the most devious tactic of Boston’s 1% against Local 8751. At the bargaining table, the city proposed a deal: Forget about the four and we will make significant improvements in the contract.The bargaining committee had none of it. Negotiators for the union made it clear that no agreement would be possible unless the four came back to work.That is solidarity in action. And the scope of issues brought by the union bargaining team was wider than the situation of Local 8751. Bargaining committee members brought the Black Lives Matter struggle into negotiations. At the bargaining table, Andre Francois, the union’s recording secretary — and one of the fired four — assailed the mayor’s representatives for the mayor’s firing of a city worker who blocked traffic on I-93 in support of the uprising against racism and police brutality.This is in keeping with the tradition of this union — which has always been to see contract justice and the struggle against racism as part of the same struggle. That’s why the Boston school bus drivers union was the first AFL-CIO local to formally endorse and make a donation to the Black Lives Matter movement. Boston Black Lives Matter and the school bus drivers union also collaborated on a protest of the mayor’s address in January.Boston’s Mass Mobilization Against Police Violence sent a representative to a Team Solidarity meeting convened by the school bus drivers. School bus drivers attended the first court appearance of the protesters who blockaded I-93; an I-93 protester attended the last court appearance of Steve Kirschbaum on Feb. 2.All this adds up to the bosses’ worst nightmare: increasing classwide solidarity that will be necessary not only for winning against the city and Veolia’s attempts to bust this union, but for pushing back the mayor’s plans to close schools and kick seventh graders off school buses.The actual contract has not gone to a vote. However, in the negotiating session, the message to the bosses was loud and clear. “No contract, no work” is chanted by the workers at many of the daily yard meetings.Veolia was brought in to tame the school bus drivers union. At this point it is facing the exact opposite: a fighting, aroused, militant union that is ready to fight.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Organisation News Jordan bans coverage of teachers’ protests Follow the news on Jordan RSF_en News August 12, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts August 8, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Al-Jazeera office in Amman shut down Two Jordanian TV journalists arrested after broadcasting criticism of lockdown News to go further Help by sharing this information News JordanMiddle East – North Africa June 15, 2020 Find out more JordanMiddle East – North Africa Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives The Jordanian information minister has withdrawn accreditation in Amman for Qatar-based Al-Jazeera satellite TV, closing down the office in the capital. The channel is accused of “provoking sedition in the kingdom” and “defaming” the royal family. He also prohibited its correspondants from working inside Jordan and warned them that they would be prosecuted if they did not submit to the order. On 11 August 2002, the authorities at Amman airport seized 29 video cassettes belonging to the sports correspondent of the television channel Al Jazira, who was on his way to Qatar.The confiscation of the tapes follows a decision taken by the Jordanian government on 7 August to withdraw accreditation from the Qatar channel, on the grounds that it had defamed Jordan and the country’s royal family. According to the journalist, the authorities want to check whether the pictures were filmed before Al Jazira journalists were banned from working in Jordan. The tapes will be returned to him if the pictures date from before 7 August.______________________________________________________________ The Jordanian information ministry has withdrawn accreditation in Amman for Qatar-based Al-Jazeera satellite TV, closing down the office in the capital. The channel is accused of “provoking sedition in the kingdom” and “defaming” the royal family.”Once again Al-Jazeera has been silenced in the Arab world. This censorship is unacceptable for a country that seeks to be seen internationally as respecting freedom of expression,” said Robert Ménard, General Secretary of Reporters Without Borders in a letter to information ministry Mohammad Adwan.”We urge you to withdraw this measure and to grant Al Jazeera and its journalists a fresh accreditation,” he added.The information ministry announced its decision to effectively close the Al-Jazeera bureau in the Jordan Multimedia Production building on 7 August, accusing it of “continuously intends to harm Jordan and its national stands whether directly or indirectly”. Information minister Mohammad Adwan warned its four correspondents working in Jordan that they would be prosecuted if they did not submit to the order.It followed the broadcast the previous evening of a political programme “Opposite Direction”. One of the participants in the debate, a US university professor of Palestinian origin, strongly criticised the late King Hussein of Jordan, whom he described as being in the pay of the United States. He also accused Jordan of having pro-Israeli policies.In an interview with AFP, Mohammad Adwan said that the broadcast had “surpassed all kinds of decency in its programms by attacking the nation’s leaders and its nobilities”. He said that remarks by the participants and the presenter of the programme constituted “pure defamation against Jordan and the royal family” and he concluded that, “there is no doubt today that Al-Jazeera has adopted a conscious anti-Jordan policy”.Mohammed Jassem Al-Ali, managing editor of Al-Jazeera said he regretted the decision of the Jordanian information ministry, but that the channel “cannot gag the mouths of people”. “We had not intended to offend Jordan or to harm its relations with Arab countries”, he said.Reporters Without Borders recalled that at the start of the year Al-Jazeera was strongly criticised by Saudi Arabia and suffered censorship in Bahrain last March and in Iraq in July. The Jordanian government closed its bureau in Amman on a previous occasion between November 1998 and April 1999. At that time channel was accused of “deliberately and repeatedly insulting the Jordanian people and regime”. April 14, 2020 Find out more
Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago CCAR Fed Federal Reserve Stress Test 2017-06-28 Joey Pizzolato Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Promising Outlook for Banks after Fed Stress Test Announcement The Federal Reserve announced the results of its Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review, or Stress Test, on Wednesday. Thirty-four bank holding companies took part in the stress test, which is now in its 7th year. The Stress test operates in two parts: the quantitative, and the qualitative, according to an official statement by the Fed. “When considering a firm’s capital plan, the Federal Reserve considers both quantitative and qualitative factors. Quantitative factors include a firm’s projected capital ratios under a hypothetical scenario of severe economic and financial market stress. Qualitative factors include the strength of the firm’s capital planning process, which incorporate risk management, internal controls, and governance practices that support the process.”Out of the 34 banks, 13 were subject to both the quantitative and the qualitative portion of the test, while the remaining 21 were rated only on quantitative factors. Out of the total test group, the Fed did not object to a single banks’ capital plan. One bank, however—Capital One Financial Corporation—will be required to resubmit its capital plan by the end of 2017, although they were still given a pass. The Fed found that U.S. firms’ common equity capital ratio has more than double, rising to 12.5 percent at the end of Q1 2017 from 5.5 percent in Q1 2009, a total increase of $750 billion to $1.25 trillion. As a result, most major banks, including Wells Fargo, Bank of America, SunTrust Banks, JPMorgan, American Express, and Discover Financial Services are raising their dividends. CitiBank doubled its dividends. After hours trading barely slowed down once the market closed—Fifth Third Bancorp showed a 3.10 percent increase, while SunTrust boasted a 2.51 percent increase and Discover’s percent change was at 2.38 percent. Read below to find a complete list of the banks that participated in the stress test:Ally Financial, Inc.; American Express Company; BancWest Corporation; Bank of America Corporation; The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation; BB&T Corporation; BBVA Compass Bancshares, Inc.; BMO Financial Corp.; Capital One Financial Corporation; CIT Group Inc.; Citigroup, Inc.; Citizens Financial Group; Comerica Incorporated; Deutsche Bank Trust Corporation; Discover Financial Services; Fifth Third Bancorp; Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.; HSBC North America Holdings, Inc.; Huntington Bancshares, Inc.; JP Morgan Chase & Co.; Keycorp; M&T Bank Corporation; Morgan Stanley; MUFG Americas Holdings Corporation; Northern Trust Corp.; The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc.; Regions Financial Corporation; Santander Holdings USA, Inc.; State Street Corporation; SunTrust Banks, Inc.; TD Group US Holdings LLC; U.S. Bancorp; Wells Fargo & Company; and Zions Bancorporation.

The homes were located in nine different metros and six different states. The financing also stands out due to the fact that all of the units are affordable for families earning at or below 100 percent of the median income. For families earning at or below 80 percent of the median income, that affordability percentage is still over 90 percent.Anthony Cinquini, Managing Director at Berkadia, said, “The single-family rental space has a gap in liquidity and affordability, which Freddie Mac is well-positioned to fill as evidenced by this transaction. We’ve been working closely with our partners at Freddie Mac to devise a lending platform that applies the discipline of our multifamily lending standards to single-family home rentals. This includes detailed and thorough underwriting of the borrowers and homes at origination and throughout the term of the loan, which promotes the long-term sustainability of the rental homes.”The single-family rental market is poised for growth going forward, with a Harvard University study reporting that 53 percent of households earning less than $35,000 rent their housing, and that that number increases to over 60 percent for households earning less than $15,000. According to that same Harvard study, single-family homes now account for 39 percent of the nationwide rental stock. However, the continued lack of affordable housing on both the purchase and rental sides of the equation is creating opportunities for the savvy investor.David Leopold, VP Targeted Affordable Sales & Investments at Freddie Mac Multifamily, said, “We’ve said from the beginning that the goal of our single-family rental pilot is to increase the availability of affordable rental housing in communities across the country, and this transaction does exactly that. All of the homes in this transaction will remain affordable for working families, with over 90 percent affordable for low- and very-low income families.”Berkadia was the first Freddie Mac seller or servicer to obtain the National Single Family Rental Designation from Freddie Mac Multifamily. The designation allows Berkadia to sell and service loans secured by single-family rental properties nationwide to Freddie Mac. This is the first such transaction.“We support the local community by investing capital to rehabilitate affordable single-family rental homes in working-class markets,” said Alan True, Founder and CEO of TrueLane Homes. “The deep knowledge of affordable housing at Freddie Mac and Berkadia and their mission to encourage borrowers like us to continue to provide housing to working-class individuals will impact the industry for years to come.”Investors interested in the single-family rental market should take note of Five Star’s 2018 Single-Family Rental Summit, set to unfold March 19-21, 2018, at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. The three-day Summit will feature top subject matter experts and skilled SFR practitioners leading discussion panels and training sessions related to property acquisition and management, financing, strategies for small, mid-cap, and large investors, and new developments related to technology and professional services.

Comments are closed. Civilian beat officers to take to London’s streetsOn 28 May 2002 in Personnel Today The Metropolitan police has started recruiting 300 community supportofficers to assist the police and provide a visible presence on London’sstreets. The Met’s HR director Martin Tiplady, told Personnel Today the newcivilian officers will be a major feature of London street policing by the endof the financial year. The recruits, who may have limited police powers, will initially guardvulnerable premises and carry out short patrols. But Tiplady is optimistic thatonce the proposed Police Reform Bill becomes law, CSOs will gain additionalpowers. These could eventually include the right to enter property, stop and searchsuspects and enforce police cordons. Tiplady said the CSOs represent a radical new part of the police family butadmitted there may be some initial resistance to their deployment. “It is a new, vibrant role so people at the more traditional end ofpolicing may have questions about it, but these new staff are notpolicemen,” he said. Tiplady said the Met had launched a media recruitment campaign and heanticipated the first 100 recruits to be patrolling Westminster as early asSeptember. In future, there will be three types of CSO: traffic, security andcommunity. The idea is to give a presence on the front line and free up policetime. “It is an exciting new role and we’re committed to it. They can befull-time or part-time and will have a flexible working pattern,” Tipladyadded. The CSOs will have their own uniform and will earn around £20,000 per year.
