and speaking of strikes

This came as a complete surprise. Who would have guessed that these interfering bastards were members of a union?
Too damn bad they can’t go the way of Hostess.
I’m still trying to work out how it is that nobody from our side has made any hits on these foreign inspired 5th columnists in the USA.
The union they belong to is I believe the largest in this country.
These ass-wipes operate all over the world, even in trouble spots I think once the shooting is over. I could be mistaken on that last part. But what disappoints a lot is that I never hear of any of them getting shot.  As in deleted. And nobody ever sends them anything that goes boom when opened.  Charmed life while sticking their red noses into the lives of others.
Oh well. One can still hope.

Quite a bit of infighting over the last several months with accusations of poor performance flying back and forth.
Too bad they won’t self destruct.


AMNESTY INTL. STAFF TO GO ON STRIKE

Staff at Amnesty International’s secretariat in Clerkenwell, London, will go out on strike today over changes to its redundancy policy.

The Unite union, which represents Amnesty staff, said the organisation’s management gave no warning of the withdrawal of its redundancy policy, which came just a few hours before details emerged of a restructure that the union said could make dozens of employees redundant.

Today’s strike follows two separate 24-hour walk-outs at Amnesty International UK’s offices in Shoreditch, London, over cost savings and job cuts.

Speaking about today’s strike, Unite said employees faced a highly uncertain future in the wake of the policy change and that about 300 of the secretariat’s 500 staff based at its Clerkenwell headquarters would walk out.

“While many appreciate cuts to staffing are inevitable, Amnesty management must stick to agreements they have signed and publicly stated they will honour in order to dispel the pervasive mistrust that has taken hold in the organisation,” said Alan Scott, regional officer at Unite.

Amnesty International’s restructure will see its global headquarters in London dissolved and replaced with 10 regional hubs around the world.

Unite said that 97 per cent of members who returned their postal ballot voted ‘yes’ to strike action but Amnesty said in a statement that only a third of staff actually voted to walk out.

Amnesty said the restructure was essential in order to move its work closer to the areas of the world where human rights violations occur.

“We very much regret that staff have taken the decision to take industrial action, while fully respecting their right to do so,” a spokesman for Amnesty International said.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
