2 dismissed sugar workers commit suicide

first_img… GAWU calls for counsellingTwo sugar workers who were issued dismissal letters by the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) have committed suicide.Reports are Ramnarase Bissesar of Inner Stanleytown, West Bank Demerara, ingested a poisonous substance on December 28, 2017, having received his dismissal letter. The second person, Joseph Mohabir, a Field Superintendent, was reportedly found hanging in his bedroom on Old Year’s Day. He too was among the workers who were dismissed by GuySuCo.Bissesar reportedly returned home around 14:00h after he visited some friends and told his wife that he was not sure how he was going to live since he did not receive his severance payment.Shortly afterwards, he went to the upper flat of the house where he ingested the poisonous substance. His wife found him in a foetal position in the floor and rushed him to the West Demerara Hospital where he was pronounced dead.Mohabir, 38, of Lot 51 Reliance Abundant, East Canje, Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne), was found hanging by the neck from the ceiling in his bedroom on Old Year’s Day, two days after his service was terminated.The discovery was made by the dead man’s 17-year-old son, Joshua, around 19:00h. The dead man’s wife, Bebi Shameeza Mohabir, explained that she had just gone to the lower flat and when she went back upstairs, he was dead.She explained that it was her son who climbed the wall and made the discovery even as they were preparing to usher in the new year.According to the grieving wife, over the past 18 years of marriage, she has never noticed her husband acting as he did over the past few days. Two weeks ago, he received the termination letter from the estate.Bebi said her now deceased husband’s traumatic behaviour after he was served with a termination letter from the Rose Hall Estate, where he worked for over 19 years.“Since he collect the letter he was totally depressed, he was not the same person. Every day he keep worrying… it is not only he is out of a job, is everybody, but he take it hard because look what he do to himself.”On Tuesday, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) called on Government to ensure that GuySuCo facilitates counselling for the dismissed individuals.“The Government, which has taken these haphazard decisions and the many broken promises that they have made, must be held accountable for this situation which is worsened by denying people their severance pay at Wales and to not setting a date for severance pay for workers from the other estates,” GAWU President Komal Chand told Guyana Times on Tuesday.The Union said it was saddened that two former sugar workers, one at Wales and the other at Rose Hall, reportedly ended their lives.Having expressed condolences to both families, GAWU while highlighting that the incidents are “extreme manifestations”, noted that the laying-off of thousands of sugar workers is having a serious psychological impact and “is pushing some into a depressive, despondent and desperate state”.Deeming Government’s plans for the sugar industry as “ill-conceived and spiteful”, GAWU feels these actions will “haunt” Guyana for generations to come.“At this time, it is incumbent for the Government to quickly arrest what, clearly, is a frightening situation. Without any further delay the Administration needs to advise on the date of payment of the workers’ severance pay and the provision of alternative employment available noting that workers expenses have not ceased though their jobs were taken away and bearing in mind too that it is not too late in correcting the closure decision taken. Immediately, in the sugar belt the conduct of suicidal counselling should begin,” the Union body expressed.GAWU further advised that workers and other family members who may harbour suicidal thoughts should to steer their mind in other directions.Meanwhile, Opposition Leader and People’s Progressive Party (PPP) General Secretary, Bharrat Jagdeo expressed similar sentiments, stressing that no one should take their own life.“I can understand the state of depression in the sugar belt because I have spoken to families and felt the extent of the hurt and uncertainty and worry about them being able to provide for their families,” he noted.The Opposition Leader further explained that many sugar workers cannot see a future beyond sugar and he deemed Government’s decision to downsize the industry as “political” as opposed to being a technical or economic decision.last_img read more

Workers endure chaos, scorching sun for severance payment

first_img…still uncertain about their futureBy Samuel SukhnandanAs scores of sugar workers gathered outside the compound of the East Demerara Sugar Estate to collect their severance package on Monday many of them expressed deep dissatisfaction with the process that was implemented by the management of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo).Several ex-GuySuCo male and female workers stood in the scorching sun for hours to receive their severanceFactory, maintenance and workshop workers were the first to receive their severance payments, but most of these ex-GuySuCo employees described the process and time it took to get paid as exhausting.Guyana Times understands that cane harvesters will start to receive severance from today.When this newspaper arrived at the East Demerara Estate, several workers had already assembled at the entrance, where they met a security guard and were each given a chip with a number.But the order in which the payment was done was not pleasing for some workers, as they believed that people should not have been forced to wait for long periods in the scorching sun.“You done work all them time deh in the sugar industry, and you can’t come out here and get no order. No manager is out here to see you or this body; this is what is going on. ‘Y’all come by numbers’, and workers for this and that will be escorted in groups or something,” one ex-worker said.Another said he is not pleased with the time frame that was given to collect severance.Ex-sugar workers expressing displeasure at the manner in which they had to wait to receive their payments“The time they have here: from 1-3 (13:00-15h), that’s insufficient. At least 9-3 (09:00-15:00h) would have been better. Some of the people would have gone from here already. How much people could you deal with from 1-3?” he asked.The payout was set to last from 13:00hrs to 15:00hrs, but workers were concerned that there was no one present to coordinate how persons are allowed to go into the compound.There also were concerns over some ex-workers being given permission to enter the compound even when their numbers were nowhere closed to being called.FutureDespite these concerns, workers who were lucky to get early numbers said they were pleased with the quantum of their severance, and spoke about future plans; but for others, their future is uncertain.A former factory worker, Lloyd Lawrence, said he feels satisfied with the amount he has received as severance on Monday. Lawrence was fired in December after 25 years of working with GuySuCo.“I feel happy about everything that worked out here,” he told this publication. Asked what he plans to do with his severance, Lawrence said he plans to keep it in the bank.However, there were some workers who raised concerns over the fact that only some of the severance payment will be distributed now. Ray Anthony was one of those workers who felt he was cheated.“It is unfair; because, if we want to do a business, since the time the estate close to now, we ain’t receive no money. If we want to invest, we can’t invest half-severance. If we were given we whole severance, we could have been able to invest in something,” he explained.Anthony argued that there are bills piled up from since December, and with the piecemeal manner in which the severance is being paid, workers will mostly likely not be able to utilize it properly.A female worker was all in smiles when she exited the estate compound with her cheque on Monday. Asked what plans she has for the future, the woman said she would stay at home. She said she has given close to three decades of service to the GuySuCo as a factory worker.Some persons have said they plan on starting small businesses, such as poultry rearing, cattle rearing, agriculture, and establishing small shops, among other small business ideas.However, a majority of the workers have said many of them are still jobless and is not sure when they are likely to get new jobs. Most of them have spent all their working lives employed by GuySuCo.Fired sugar workers who are eligible to receive $500,000 or less in severance pay are being paid in full; and the others who would be paid 50 percent of the amounts due to them. This amount is close to 1,600.The Opposition People’s Progressive Party/ Civic (PPP/C) had put Government on blast for its decision to pay the sacked sugar workers their severance payments in two tranches. A move by Opposition Leader Dr Bharat Jadgeo, as well as others had on multiple occasions outlined it as being illegal.According to Jadgeo, the Government knew that over 4,000 severance letters were issued even before the Budget 2018 was passed, and had made no provision for severance, hence the move to approach the National Assembly recently for additional funds.In what is described as the largest retrenchment by a private or public corporation in recent history, state owned GuySuCo, as part of its plans to restructure the sugar industry, has dismissed in excess of 4,500 sugar workers from various estates.last_img read more

Missing Boy Scout found near camp

first_imgMcGRADY, N.C. – A 12-year-old Boy Scout whose favorite book was about a youngster lost in the wilderness now has his own harrowing survival tale to tell after rescuers found him Tuesday, dehydrated and disoriented from four days in the wooded mountains of North Carolina. A rescue dog picked up Michael Auberry’s scent less than a mile from the campsite where he had wandered away from his troop Saturday. The boy’s father speculated that he was simply homesick and wanted to hitchhike home. The disappearance touched off an intensive search involving bloodhounds, heat-seeking helicopters and dozens of volunteers on foot. “He saw the helicopters and heard people calling him, but he yelled back and they didn’t hear him,” said his father, Kent Auberry of Greensboro. “He’s very tired. He’s very dehydrated. But he came through this in unbelievable fashion.” With tears in his eyes, Auberry added: “To have our son back is a tremendous blessing.” Aside from a few cuts and scratches, Michael was in good health and could walk and talk. Because he had been without food and water, he was carried on a stretcher to a nearby road and then taken to see his parents. “A lot of tears, a lot of hugs,” said Tina White, spokeswoman for the National Park Service. Later, Michael went by ambulance to a medical center. Along the way, he received IV fluids to help him rehydrate and told his father he wanted to sleep, said ambulance driver Bud Lane. Hours earlier, the boy’s father had talked about one of Michael’s favorite books when he was younger, a story titled “Hatchet” about a boy whose plane crashes in the wilderness, and how the boy survives on his own. “I think he’s got some of that book in his mind,” said Kent Auberry.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A few hours after an emotional reunion, Kent Auberry said he still didn’t know much about his son’s ordeal, mostly because he decided not to ask too many questions. “What he tells us is he was on the move,” Auberry said. “He slept in tree branches. He curled up under rocks.” Michael had worn two jackets, one of them fleece, and was believed to have a mess kit and potato chips with him when he disappeared. He told the rescue team he had been drinking water from streams, and lost his hat and glasses in the woods. Searchers spotted Michael walking along a stream before he saw them. “They called his name. He didn’t respond … Once they said, `We’re here to rescue you,’ the first thing he said is he wanted a helicopter ride out of there,” said Blue Ridge Parkway ranger David Bauer. last_img

Delgadillo seeks aid for L.A.

first_imgRep. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, introduced legislation that would direct $1 billion in federal funds to the gang problem. It also mandates stiffer penalties and creates a range of new criminal offenses aimed at prohibiting gang recruiting. California is home to an estimated 150,000 gang members, with about 40,000 in the L.A. area. “As a former federal prosecutor, I have seen first hand the damage gangs cause in our community,” Schiff said. A member of the House Appropriations Committee, Schiff also vowed that funding for gang prevention is a top priority for him. WASHINGTON – Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo barnstormed Capitol Hill on Tuesday in the first hours of a three-day lobbying trip aimed at shoring up support for federal gang legislation. In meetings this week with House members and California Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, Delgadillo said he hopes to build more federal support for addressing L.A.’s gang violence. “It’s important to forge relationships with Washington,” Delgadillo said. “We will be in need of resources.” Delgadillo’s trip comes on the heels of a new slate of anti-gang legislation he unveiled in Sacramento last week. California members of Congress also are pushing to move gang measures to the top of the national agenda. His bill, the Gang Abatement and Prevention Act, mirrors a measure Feinstein has been pushing in the Senate. On Tuesday it won an endorsement from California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. “Gang violence is a problem in communities all over California,” Schwarzenegger wrote in a letter to Feinstein. “We need to have a coordinated approach among federal, state and local governments to work together and eliminate this problem.” Feinstein called the governor’s backing “a major vote of confidence.” Last year, the Feinstein/Schiff bill stalled in the House, where GOP leaders eliminated most of the prevention funding and attempted to insert mandatory minimum sentences opposed by many Democrats. “I think we have a good chance of getting the bill passed this session,” Schiff said Tuesday. The Senate Judiciary Committee also is likely to approve Feinstein’s bill. A gang bill by Boxer named after an 11-year-old San Bernardino girl killed by gang members in 2005 also is pending in the Senate. Delgadillo said he hopes to persuade lawmakers that the gang problem is not limited to cities like Los Angeles and needs to be addressed on a national scale. “A gang is coming to a neighborhood near you,” he said. The federal government, he said, “needs to prioritize the gang problem, and treat it as the national crisis it is.” lisa.friedman@langnews.com (202) 662-8731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Arsene Wenger: Arsenal captain could link up with Guardiola at Man City

first_img1 Arsene Wenger admits it is possible Mikel Arteta could take up a coaching role at Manchester City when his Arsenal contract expires this summer.The 34-year-old has played just 369 minutes in all competitions for the Gunners this season in another campaign stunted by injury problems.Club captain Arteta has not featured since the 2-1 FA Cup fourth-round win over Burnley on January 30 but is fit and available for selection.The former Rangers and Everton midfielder was in and around the Barcelona set-up when in-coming Man City boss Pep Guardiola was in the first-team and reports have suggested the two could be reunited in the Etihad Stadium dugout next season.“It is possible,” Wenger said when asked if Arteta could depart for a backroom role at City. “It is true that he is out of contract here and when his contract finishes it is a good opportunity for me to thank him for his contribution, not only as a player but also as a leader.“What kind of orientation will he give now to his career? I heard about that possibility, but he could inform you much better than I can.“He is free to decide to do what he wants, he will certainly need some time to reflect on whether he continues to play.“I still think he can play, in the last months he has come back to a very good physical level and he is a position today where he can continue to play and he would be a very good player everywhere.”Wenger has a history of giving former players the chance to coach youth teams at Arsenal – but said he has no room in his current first-team set-up for the man he signed back in 2011.“You want your former players to be at the club but you also need the positions to fill,” he said.“You cannot create artificial positions at the club. If you have coaches in the under-16s, under-15s and under-14s who are very good, you will not kick them out to make room for players who want to coach.“If we have positions available, we always give a good chance to the players who played here. Let’s not forget I’ve given the opportunity to many, many players to obtain their licence here, to educate them.“After that maybe there will be someone else. We always open the door to give them an opportunity to be educated. After that we need the positions available to give them the job.“We will be going until the end of the season. We don’t know what will happen with the coaches’ movement.”As well as being linked to Guardiola’s new regime at City, Arteta has also been touted to make a move across north London to coach at Tottenham – having played with head coach Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain.

COUNTY REGISTRAR: ‘FAMILIES ARE GIVEN A CHANCE TO KEEP THEIR HOMES’

first_imgCounty Registrar Geraldine O’Connor has said she will always give families a chance to remain in their homes when facing repossession orders.She was speaking at a sitting of the Motions Court in Letterkenny a few weeks after protests disrupted a previous hearing.More than 100 repossession cases were listed yesterday. “Only a handful have been granted and these are rarely involving family homes,” she told the court.The repossession orders granted mainly involved vacant and abandoned properties, she said.“In so far as I can I will allow time to anyone making genuine efforts to deal with a family mortage situation; for people to take advice and I will then consider the matter,” said Ms O’Connor.She said most of the cases would be adjourned because they were making first appearances on the list or because borrowers had made contact with the lender.In a large number of cases yesterday, proceedings were adjourned – with many of those in court making some sort of payment to the banks and engaging with them.Permanent TSB asked for a number of cases to be struck out having reached agreement with home owners. The bank didn’t pursue their costs.AIB bank also had cases struck out but said they were seeking their costs.During a repossession application by Pepper Finance (Ireland) Limited, a number of people shouted across the court room.One woman could be heard to say: “You don’t have a license to collect money in Ireland or anywhere else in Europe.”COUNTY REGISTRAR: ‘FAMILIES ARE GIVEN A CHANCE TO KEEP THEIR HOMES’ was last modified: December 8th, 2015 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:AIBdonegalLetterkenny CourtordersPermanent TSBRepossessionslast_img read more

Donegal get underway with easy win over Sligo at Coláiste Ailigh

first_imgDonegal overcame Sligo 1-18 to 0-9 in a 13-a-side challenge match at Coláiste Ailigh in Letterkenny today.St Michael’s player Michael Langan scored seven points – six from placed balls – while Jamie Brennan was impressive in the first half in scoring 1-3.Kieran Gillespie and Cian Mulligan acquitted themselves well, as did substitute Ciaran Thompson. Former Leitrim footballer Paul Brennan lined out for Donegal for the first time.Darach O’Connor lined out in the county colours for the first time since July 2015 following a cruciate injury. O’Connor didn’t make it onto the scoresheet – he hit the upright with an attempt at a point in the first half and saw Sligo substitute goalkeeper Fintan Ruddy save his shot at goal late in the contest.Donegal were 1-10 to 0-3 in front at half-time, with Jamie Brennan having scored 1-3 in 16 minutes.The vast amount of changes meant the second half took a little while longer to find its shape. However, Donegal continued on the front foot with Langan and Thompson doing the bulk of the scoring.Donegal get underway with easy win over Sligo at Coláiste Ailigh was last modified: December 11th, 2016 by Chris McNultyShare 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)last_img read more
