Biggest U.S. strike in over a decade: GM strikers battle on

first_imgAs the biggest (numerically) U.S. strike in over a decade enters its fourth week, General Motors workers are showing no signs of giving in. While they would like to see some resolution and return to work, they don’t want to go back in with a bad contract. The 49,000 United Auto Workers’ members want to see “temporary” and lower-paid “in progression” workers brought up to top pay and given equal  benefits. “Everyone Tier One!” has become a popular picket sign.Striking members of UAW Local 1005 outside the GM plant in Parma, Ohio. October 7, Day 22 of the strike.There are also demands to cancel plant closings, raise retiree pensions and give every worker a decent pay increase. Workers know that the company, which made $35 billion in clear profit over the past four years, can well afford to address all their concerns.The capitalist press has repeated on a near-daily basis GM’s complaint that its U.S labor costs hover around $62 an hour — higher than Ford, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) or the non-union plants of Asian and European auto companies. This misleads the public into believing that autoworkers make that figure in hourly wages. But the amount includes many other labor costs, such as pension contributions, vacation and holiday pay, and health insurance. In 2007, the year of the last GM strike, pay was closer to $80 an hour.What isn’t often said is that labor costs are less than 5 percent of a vehicle’s price tag, and that overall labor costs per vehicle fall with each new generation of automation technology, which is designed to raise productivity and get more work for the same or less pay. Moreover, GM, Ford and FCA have all cut costs via the outsourcing and subcontracting of work previously done by the Detroit Three UAW workers. GM employs the biggest number of autoworkers in Mexico; it has more workers in China than in the U.S. Pay for these workers doesn’t begin to approach $62 an hour. South Korean GM workers are striking at the same time as their U.S. counterparts — also for higher wages and to make  temporary workers permanent.Hoping for the best, preparing for the worstStrikers were on a bit of an emotional roller coaster the weekend of October 5-6. On Saturday, UAW Vice President Terry Dittes gave workers an update, stating that “good progress” had been made, including a path to permanent status for temporary workers. The next day he informed strikers that negotiations had “taken a turn for the worse.”With all the publicity around corruption in the UAW International leadership, and the paucity of specific information from their negotiators, rank-and-file workers aren’t sure how much to believe about the deal being negotiated. In the past, the International has pitched concessionary contracts that contained the current language allowing the deplorable treatment of temporary workers.What strikers understand clearly is the sharp class conflict between GM’s determination to shrink workers’ pay and UAW members’ equally fierce determination to win wage equity, job security and a bigger share of the value they produce. Their strong will is a factor in the negotiations, which are continuing.Solidarity with the strike continues to build. The Michigan state chapter of the American Federation of Teachers has called on its members to join the picket lines. The NFL Players Association has just pledged its support. UAW Local 961, representing the FCA Marysville Axle Plant, delivered 30,000 pounds of food to Local 22 at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. Ford workers in Turkey are the latest to send an international solidarity message. The list goes on of unions here and abroad that see the GM workers’ fight as their fight. Grevatt is a retired UAW FCA worker and serves on the Executive Board of UAW Local 869.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF opposes spread of China’s Internet surveillance model

first_img News ChinaAsia – Pacific Protecting journalistsOnline freedomsProtecting sources Freedom of expressionInternet December 9, 2017 RSF opposes spread of China’s Internet surveillance model The concept was reaffirmed again this week at China’s annual World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, in the eastern province of Zhejiang, whose participants included Apple CEO Tim Cook and Google CEO Sundar Pinchai.China is “willing to work with the international community to respect cyberspace sovereignty and promote partnerships,” President Xi Jinping said in a message to the conference.What Beijing wants is for the world’s governments to follow its example and impose a strictly controlled and monitored Internet in their own countries. RSF calls for no concessions to China’s repeated demands for a clampdown on cyberspace, a space intended to be free and borderless.“Using sovereignty as a pretext, China is trying to legitimize the online control and surveillance of its citizens although, until now, the Internet was a way of escaping censorship,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia desk. “If a majority of states adopted this vision of the Internet, it would mean the end of the free flow of information worldwide.”Held annually for the past four years in Wuzhen, the World Internet Conference was dreamed up by the Chinese government with the aim of exporting its censorship model and, at the same time, reminding the world’s Internet giants that it is the Communist Party and not the market that determines how things are done in China.Although the bosses of Apple and Google took the trouble to go all the way to Wuzhen, President Xi signalled who is boss in China by not attending himself and having his message read out by party propaganda chief Huang Kunming.Repressive and protectionist modelChina has 751 million Internet users – more than any other country and a fifth of the world’s total Internet user population. According to a report published to coincide with the conference, the digital sector now constitutes a third of the Chinese economy, the highest proportion in the world after the United States.Thanks to a protectionist and strictly regulated model, China has spawned firms such as Baidu, Tecent, Alibaba and smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi that are extremely powerful in the domestic market.Although banned in China, Google and Facebook are actively wooing the regime in the hope of one day being granted access to its fabulous internal market. Apple recently caused an international outcry by ridding its Chinese store of secure communications apps that journalists need to protect their sources and by withdrawing VPNs, which can be used to circumvent the “Great Firewall.”RSF condemned these concessions to the Chinese government, as did David Kaye, the United Nations special rapporteur on freedom of expression and opinion.Ever since becoming president, Xi Jinping has proved to be a determined enemy of freedom of information, fine-tuning a sophisticated Internet surveillance system that employs more than 2 million people.The world’s biggest prison for journalists and civil rights activists, China is ranked almost at the bottom, 176th out of 180 countries, in the RSF’s World Press Freedom Index. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges the international community and the world’s Internet giants to resist China’s use of the concept of national “cyberspace sovereignty” as a pretext for exporting its Internet surveillance model.

Councilmember McAustin Opposes ‘Politicized’ Police Oversight

first_img CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday [UPDATED] As Pasadena residents and elected officials continue to discuss the way forward on police oversight, Councilmember Margaret McAustin told Pasadena Now on Tuesday she opposes the model by Mayor Terry Tornek and John Kennedy, because she worries the result would be a politicized commission.In an interview Tuesday with Pasadena Now, McAustin said she did not think members of the commission should be chosen by the City Council.“It’s inherently political if council members appoint,” she said. “I think the idea is for regular folks [to] evaluate these things without the filter that we have by sitting on the council. This time, I think it’s important that community folks be on the board.”McAustin proposed that interested parties take the 30 hours of training and then enter a lottery system for a seat on the commission.“Maybe that won’t work. Maybe it will,” she said. “Maybe there’s a hybrid of that, but I think [the selection process] should be completely detached from the city council.”McAustin did say the framework provided by the Mayor Tornek and Kennedy provided a really good start.And called it one of many actions the city will be taking in the coming months.The City Council has been discussing oversight in the wake of the George Floyd death, the Black motorist who was killed by police after he was accused of passing a counterfeit $20 bill in May.An officer placed his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes during that incident.Floyd’s death led to protests around the country, including several in Pasadena.McAustin told Pasadena Now that she would like to see people impacted by their encounter with police on the commission, along with women.“I’m doing this as an older, white woman. My experience with the police department has been very different from a lot of other people’s,” McAustin said. “I just want to be mindful of the fact that my experience is not maybe the typical experience, certainly not for a Black or brown person.”Tornek and Kennedy’s proposal would lead to an independent auditor under the authority of City Manager Steve Mermell and a 13-member commission chosen by City Council members, the City Manager, the Police Chief and three by community groups with specific qualifications.That plan was opposed by Vice Mayor Tyron Hampton, who is seeking a body independent of the City Manager’s office with subpoena power.At Monday’s City Council meeting, Hampton called on the city to hire a city prosecutor, a position that would carry subpoena power.Any effort to start a commission independent of Mermell’s purview would require a change to the City Charter, which requires voter approval.“Subpoena power offers a person the ability to subpoena private personnel records, which comes into conflict with a lot of existing protections for police officers,” McAustin said. “There are laws on the books relating to this. It’s a very serious power. And some people feel that without that power an auditor or a commission would not be able to get the information that they need. I don’t believe that.”On Tuesday, Tornek told Pasadena Now subpoena power is a red herring.“I think that the subpoena power is misunderstood. If the format that Councilmember Kennedy and I have proposed is adopted, the subpoena power will not be necessary because the independent auditor would be lodged in the City Manager’s department, or in council member Hampton’s version, in the City Prosecutor’s office, [who] has access to all the information without the subpoena power,” Tornek said.“The subpoena power reference that keeps being made is for an auditor or a commission that doesn’t otherwise have access to sensitive information. The example that keeps being referenced is in L.A. County and the reason that they required the subpoena power in L.A. County is because the Sheriff is independently elected.”In Pasadena, the Police Chief is hired by the City Manager and could be fired for refusing to cooperate with an investigation.McAustin’s move towards oversight is a major change in direction. For years, the three-time elected councilmember sided with a super majority of her colleagues that did not support civilian oversight of the department making discussion of the topic at Council meetings all but impossible.“The goal of police oversight was really brought home after the murder of George Floyd and all the subsequent protests and actions and everything,” according to McAustin.“In my view, the goal of what we’re doing is to provide a role for the community in a meaningful way to have some oversight over how the police department acts and to have a better understanding of what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and to provide information back to the council and to the rest of the community and to the police chief, if they see problems so we can correct those problems,” she said.

Prior to joining Treliant, Broeksmit served as EVP of Chevy Chase Bank. He has previously served on the MBA’s Board of Directors and as Chairman of the organization’s Residential Board of Governors.”The MBA has never been stronger, and we have full confidence that Bob is the right person to take the MBA to even greater heights,” MBA Chairman David Motley said in a press release. “He brings with him decades of industry knowledge and leadership experience at a time when our industry is facing great change and disruption.”“Congratulations to Robert on his appointment,” said Ed Delgado, President and CEO of The Five Star Institute. “I have no doubt that his wealth of industry knowledge and experience will serve the MBA well moving forward.

Stevens had been public about his battle against cancer, saying in a statement at the time that, “With my cancer in remission, focusing on family, friends and staying healthy is my priority. This was a difficult decision; it’s hard to walk away from supporting an industry that shaped my career. It’s been an honor to work with the talented staff, strong leadership and diverse membership of the MBA.””I’ve known Bob [Broeksmit] for over a decade, and he is an excellent choice to lead MBA,” Stevens said. “Bob brings a deep understanding of how the industry works and understands the needs of our membership, and I look forward to working with him to ensure a seamless and successful transition.”To read exclusive quotes from outgoing MBA President and CEO David Stevens, discussing his legacy with the organization and the challenges his successor will face, click here.

Energetic cost of synthesizing proteins in Antarctic limpet, Nacella concinna (Strebel, 1908), is not temperature dependent

first_imgThe energetic cost of protein synthesis is thought to account for a significant proportion of total metabolism. However, attempts to estimate the energetic cost of synthesizing proteins have resulted in surprisingly variable results, particularly for the small number of polar organisms studied, where cost estimates vary by two orders of magnitude. Much of this variability is probably the result of differing methodologies and experimental designs. Here we have used two different, carefully validated methods to measure the costs of protein synthesis in Antarctic limpets. One method, which utilized a specific protein synthesis inhibitor, was used to measure the cost of protein synthesis at two temperatures to test the hypothesis that the cost of protein synthesis varies with temperature. The cost of protein synthesis measured using the inhibitor cycloheximide was 13.95 ± 0.77 µmol O2/mg protein, while correlation of absolute protein synthesis with oxygen consumption suggested the cost of protein synthesis was 19.58 µmol O2/mg protein. Water temperature did not alter the cost of protein synthesis in Nacella concinna (Student’s t-test, P = 0.849, t = 0.19, df = 12). In a meta-analysis of literature values for the cost of protein synthesis there was no significant effect of temperature, but there was a significant relationship between the concentration of cycloheximide used to inhibit protein synthesis and the measured cost.last_img read more
