GTU to meet Govt today on salary impasse

first_img– fresh counterproposals expectedA team of executive members of the Guyana Teachers Union (GTU) headed by its President, Mark Lyte, will be heading into another round of discussions with Government today.Lyte had initially expressed concerns over statements made by Education Minister Nicolette Henry on Wednesday in relation to the issues between the two entities.The GTU President also claimed that the Minister’s statement on the negotiations was “laced with inaccuracies”, as he explained that there was never any plan for a follow-up meeting.“The Union having looked at the counterproposal indicated what we were in agreement with and what we didn’t agree with. Some were withdrawn, and we said we wouldn’t pursue them,” he said.However, Lyte argued that there was no plan for a follow-up meeting, because at the end of the last one on Thursday, August 9, the idea was for the Union toEducation Minister Nicolette Henryaccept what they had on the table.He said, “Whether in the minds of Government, it was implied; the Union cannot work on implied meanings. What was said at the table is this is what Government can afford…the ballpark figure.”Lyte maintained that there was no plan for a follow-up and consideration given to coming up with another figure. “The (Education) Ministry never offered that option,” he emphasised.Further, the GTU President believes that the ballpark figure was disrespectful to teachers, “because if you look at it, that figure divided among 10,000 teachers, we were not talking about a multi-year payout, we were talking about a one-year payout.”He reasoned that had the GTU accepted that proposal, that money would have amounted to $5000 per teacher per month across the board for one year.“So what happens to 2016 to 2020? We could not have accepted that ballpark figure. The other ballpark figure that was on offer was debunching,” he added.The GTU official said that the Union has been engaging the Administration about debunching that is outstanding with an agreement that was established since 2011.“We believe one Government inherits what another Government had signed and, therefore, we hold this Government responsible for paying debunching,” he stated.Lyte noted that Government was requesting that the Union forget about that agreement and agree to a debunching payoff of $200 million for 2018-19. “Now that is disrespectful!” he said.The GTU on Tuesday received correspondence from Minister Henry with an invitation outlining that there was to be a follow-up meeting and the Union now had to justify what it was proposing.The GTU President said that that was discussed in the task force set up for that purpose, and there was a green document that the task force would have created with the justifications.Having looked at the contents of the letter, Lyte said the Union had to seek some clarity from the Minister before it agreed to have discussions surrounding the issue.“We already know what we proposed, what was accepted and recommended by the task force … So what is being put to the table has no bearing to what was discussed in the task force? So why did we meet in the task force in the first placeGTU President Mark Lytefor five months?” he questioned.Lyte continued, “These are all the questions that cause us not to want to trust the Administration to go to the extent to say we are going to the table again. To do what?On Monday, the GTU circulated a letter to inform its members that they were not to report for pre-term activities until further notice, as it mobilised teachers for a planned strike. The Union has also urged head teachers to also begin handing over school keys to the respective regional education officials.Lyte told this newspaper on Tuesday that a majority of teachers were against the Administration’s “unreasonable” proposals brought to the Union. The GTU Head added that for now, a “full out” strike has not begun, but if nothing came to the table, there would be picketing and later, several marches.The Union Head envisions that 90 per cent of teachers in the public schools were ready to support the GTU’s move.Negotiations have been ongoing since 2015 when the Multi-Year Agreement came to an end.The meeting between both parties is expected to take place at 14:00h at the Ministry.last_img read more

They took a 2-1 lead, and while Manning would battle back to tie the game, Fort St. John scored twice in the final seven minutes to take a 4-2 lead. There was no scoring in the third period.- Advertisement -After the game head coach Gerard Dicaire said while the team strives for efforts like the one they put out on Friday, it can be a challenge to follow through on that so close to the holidays against a weaker squad.“We’ve tried to stress consistency. We played such a good game last night [Friday] but it’s tough. Guys are thinking about Christmas and drinking some beer and hanging out and spending time with family. They show up with 11 guys and I think that gets into their head that it’s going to be an easy game and they scored that first one and it was a little scary.”Scoring for the Flyers in the game were Joey Massingham, Adam Horst, Kyle Leahy, and Rick Cleaver.Advertisement The Flyers return from the Christmas break on January 3 as they’ll be in Falher.

CARRICKFIN AIRPORT SUBSIDY IS SAFE – BUT DERRY/DUBLIN AXED

first_imgThe Government has agreed to continue the Public Service Obligation (PSO) subsidy for Donegal Airport, according to local Senator Brian Ó’Domhnaill, but the Derry-Dublin route could now be axed.The Senator has secured assurances about the future of the PSO from the Minister for Transport Noel Dempsey.“Following extensive campaigning on this issue, I have now been assured by the Minister that this important State support for Donegal Airport will continue,” explained Senator Ó’Domhnaill. “I held in-depth discussions with Noel Dempsey about how vital the PSO is to the future of Donegal Airport. I also explained that this transport link is a crucial part to the economic sustainability of the entire region.“The Minister understood this, and I welcome his commitment to securing the PSO subsidy here, despite the current financial restraints.“This is great news for Donegal which is in need of continued support to secure the growth and development of our region. The PSO has been removed from a number of other regional airports due to improvements in alternate methods of transport.“While the infrastructure continues to be developed here, our local airport needs as much backing as it can get. The Government clearly recognises this,” concluded Senator Ó’Domhnaill. Minister Dempsey said: “Having considered the conclusions and recommendations of the review, the Government has agreed to support the continuation of a PSO route between Donegal and Dublin and between Kerry and Dublin.“In line with the review, the Government has also agreed to cease requiring PSO routes between Dublin and Sligo, Knock, Galway and Derry from July 2011, recognising, inter alia, the improvements in alternative transport modes which have taken place.”CARRICKFIN AIRPORT SUBSIDY IS SAFE – BUT DERRY/DUBLIN AXED was last modified: January 12th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:airportaxedcarrickfinlast_img read more

REVEALED: FED-UP NEIGHBOUR SMASHED CAR WINDOW OF DAD OF NOTORIOUS BURGLAR

first_imgMaureen Friel: Had enough of the LaffertysA WOMAN grabbed a rock and smashed the car window of a car being driven by the father of a notorious burglar after he tormented her and her family, a court has heard.Matthew Lafferty is serving five years behind bars after a series of burglaries in Donegal and Mayo. But Letterkenny District Court heard that the arrival of Lafferty and his father in a quiet area outside Kilmacrennan sparked a feud with their neighbours – the Kellys.A number of incidents had already taken place when Maureen Friel, from Glenwood Park in Letterkenny went to visit her father (the Kellys), on March 31 last year.Defence solicitor Kieran Dillon said Mrs Friel was in a car travelling up a long lane at Ballykeeran when Gerard Lafferty – Matthew Lafferty’s father – kept stopping his car and reversing it into the car in which Mrs Friel was passenger.Things came to a head, said Mr Dillon, and Mrs Friel had picked up a rock and thrown it at the windscreen of the car being driven by 45-year-old Gerard Lafferty.“In the course of this journey, that the vehicle in front, reversed into the front of their vehicle,” said Mr Dillon.“Mrs Frield was very frightened and she went forward and in the context of stopping what was making place, she did pick up a stone and break the window to try to stop the driver’s actions.“The other family has moved away. That has really helped to stabilise the situation.”Matthew Lafferty: Behind barsMrs Friel, who is 29, was released on her own bond of €250 to keep the peace for 12 months.Meanwhile Gerard Lafferty failed to appear in court for alleged offences on the same date.He is facing charges of possession of knives and other articles.Judge Paul Kelly issued a warrant for his arrest.REVEALED: FED-UP NEIGHBOUR SMASHED CAR WINDOW OF DAD OF NOTORIOUS BURGLAR was last modified: July 15th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BallykeeranburglardonegalGerard LaffertykilmacrennanLetterkenny District CourtMatthew LaffertyMaureen Friellast_img read more
