first_imgNewsRegional Union leader starts racial row in Barbados by: – May 4, 2012 Roy TrotmanBRIDGETOWN, Barbados – Union protests against the firing of a handful of workers by an international jewellery store has taken on a different colour as prominent labour leader Sir Roy Trotman has been accused of racialising the dispute.During a fiery May Day presentation marking the annual recognition of Labour Day celebrations in Barbados, eminent trade unionist Sir Roy Trotman made targeted remarks about recent employment terminations carried out by an “Egyptian Jew” and linked the firings to attempts by those fired to join the labour movement. Sir Roy is reported to have further went on to make other targeted remarks about “foreign people” and sent the message that Barbados was not Syria, Damascus or Libya.The union leader’s remarks have been strongly condemned by the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which issued a statement yesterday (Wednesday) evening decrying the racialised statements and calling on Sir Roy to retract them.New York-based Diamonds International, which has several branches in Barbados and throughout the Caribbean, terminated seven workers at the beginning of this week out of their 130 employees across the island. While the firings by managing director Jacob Hassid, who is Jewish, came shortly after interest was expressed by several employees in bringing union representation to bargain on their behalf, the company has publicly stated through their attorney that the firings were in process before any union overtures were made and that they were in fact a response to unbecoming behaviour by the employees.The full text of the Chamber of Commerce’s reaction to the firing is contained below:“The Barbados Chamber of Commerce and industry is appalled by the statements attributed to Sir Roy Trotman in relation to one of our member companies Diamonds International.“Sir Roy is reported to have said that 20 workers at Diamonds International were terminated on Monday 30 April 2012 because they met on Saturday April 28 to discuss whether they should form a bargaining unit. He is also reported to have referred to the managing director of the company as an “Egyptian Jew” and called on all employers to “to tell these foreign people that this is not Syria, this is not Damascus, this is not Libya”.The BCCI fully supports the right of any employee to join a union of their choice and the principles laid out in the protocol of the social partnership. We also support the provision within the draft employment rights bill under section 30 which indicates that an employee should not be discriminated against on account of their race or religion and suggest that neither should an employer be discriminated against on a similar basis.“The BCCI has consulted with Diamonds International to ascertain the facts and they have reported that 7 persons had their contracts terminated following an extended period of consultation as a result of the recommendations of their immediate supervisors. Their termination is in no way related to any intention that they might have had to form a bargaining unit. In fact, the company stressed that it has informed staff that they are free to join any organisation that they choose, including a union, without fear of repercussion.“Over the last four years while the economy has been very difficult and many companies within Barbados have closed, Diamonds International has honoured the Protocol of the Social Partnership and has not laid anyone off as a result of the recession. In fact, Diamonds International has shown great commitment to the Barbadian economy by expanding during this difficult time, most notably by opening new stores at the Lime Grove Lifestyle Centre. The company currently employs 130 persons.“The managing director, Mr. Jacob Hassid, has lived in Barbados for 17 years and he and his wife have three children all of whom were born in Barbados. When someone has shown this level of commitment to our country, we should not be referring to them by race or religion and seeking to make them feel personally uncomfortable.“We would hope that Sir Roy would investigate the facts and, once he is satisfied that he has been mis-informed, would withdraw his uncalled for remarks.Caribbean 360 News 81 Views   one comment Share Sharing is caring!center_img Tweet Share Sharelast_img read more

first_imgAfter losing at home to Arizona last Saturday, UCLA (19-2, 6-2) fell outside the top five in the AP poll for the first time in eight weeks. Meanwhile, USC (17-4, 4-4) received votes for the ninth straight week. The two teams were part of an elite corps of six that finished non-conference play undefeated. With UCLA off to its best start since the 2006-07 season — which saw them reach the Final Four — and USC off to its best start since 1971-72, Angelenos have been anticipating Wednesday’s game for quite some time. In fact, tickets sold out nearly one month ago. The Trojans will need to feed off the home-crowd energy delivered by 10,000-plus fans, including 1,500 raucous students. USC has won 27 of its last 31 home contests, but UCLA excels on the road, and it will surely bring a sizeable contingent of fans to the Galen Center, too. The Bruins are 4-1 away from home this season, with their sole loss coming from a buzzer-beater miracle at Oregon.Katlyn Lee | Daily TrojanIn UCLA’s rare losses, it has allowed 92.5 points per game. USC has scored 93 points three times this season — once in an overtime victory — but the Trojans average 69.9 points per game in conference play. Basketball statistician Ken Pomeroy ranks UCLA 127th in defensive efficiency, as the team has allowed 80.6 points per game in Pac-12 play. However, the Bruins have hid their defensive deficiencies behind one of the best scoring offenses in the nation. UCLA head coach Steve Alford has a repertoire of skilled guards on his team, as well as six double-digit scorers.The Bruins share the ball better than all of their conference foes. Their 22.3 assists-per-game is the highest mark in the Pac-12. Freshman prodigy Lonzo Ball leads the conference with 8.0 assists-per-game, and the guard’s ball-handling skills are unparalleled. He has maintained a 3.58 assist/turnover ratio this season — a full-point better than all other point guards in the league. No one scores more prolifically on UCLA than the coach’s son, senior guard Bryce Alford. He leads the Pac-12 in 3-pointers (71), and four Bruins, including Alford, shoot better than 43 percent from beyond the arc. There aren’t many all-around threats like UCLA freshman T.J. Leaf, who is second in the Pac-12 in 3-point percentage. The 6-foot-10 big man plays similarly to USC’s own, sophomore forward Bennie Boatwright. Leaf rebounds, passes and scores, averaging 16.7 points, 3.2 assists and 8.7 rebounds on the season. USC’s defense faces a tall order in slowing Leaf and company, especially without Boatwright and potentially redshirt senior forward Charles Buggs, who sat out Sunday night with a sore left knee. The Trojans will probably spend much of the game in their zone defense to solve the tricky individualmatchups UCLA poses. “We’re doing a good job defensively this year,” head coach Andy Enfield said. “We’ve been inconsistent this year, but we play hard. We block shots. We steal the ball. We play small. We play big. We’ve got a special group here.”Boatwright was originally expected to miss 6-8 weeks after injuring his knee against San Diego in November, but eight weeks later, he continues to sit. The coaching staff expects him to return to full practice soon — hopefully within a week or two.“Our coaching staff is thrilled to be 17-4 without Bennie,” Enfield said. “The 327th most experienced team in the country has played beyond its years.”last_img read more
