Why tinker street workers had to strike
The postal service could come to a standstill in the coming weeks after union bosses announced four days of strike action in the biggest workforce walkout so far this summer. Postal workers will walk out on Friday 26 and Wednesday 31 August and Thursday 8 and Friday 9 September. It will be the biggest strike so far in the “summer of discontent” and marks the first time Royal Mail workers have walked out since 2009. It comes after more than 115,000 members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU) overwhelmingly voted for industrial action in July . Some 97.6 per cent of workers voted to walk out in a row over pay and working conditions. Turnout for the ballot was 77 per cent. Nationwide rail strikes earlier this year by comparison have involved around 40,000 workers. Postal workers have demanded a “dignified, proper pay rise” in the face of rampant inflation , rejecting the 5.5 per cent wage increase offered by the company so far. Royal Mail’s offer includes a two per cent … [Read more...] about Royal Mail workers announce biggest strike of the summer

The TUC said its study suggests that the number of children growing up in poverty in key worker households has increased by 65,000 over the past two years to nearly one million.

Key worker families in the North East have the highest rate of child poverty (41%) followed by the North West and London (both 29%), and the East of England (24%), while Scotland (8.3%) and Wales (8.9%) have the lowest rates, said the TUC. The union organisation warned that another year of below-inflation pay rises for public … [Read more...] about Child poverty increasing in key worker households, warns TUC
Let’s start in a very clear, very concise manner. I’m going to assume you are two adults who want to try a bit of kink or BDSM, and you’re looking for a bit of helpful advice. I’m going to make that caveat because I’m tired of seeing advice columns labelled ‘How do I tell my partner I want to try kinky sex?’ You just do – you open your mouth and ask. I’m sorry if you don’t feel like you’re in an open and honest enough relationship and I feel bad for you son. But you got 99 problems and your kink ain’t one. In recent years the S&M moniker has extended to BDSM – Bondage, Domination, Sadism, Masochism. (The S stands for Sadism – the art of hurting Someone else. The M stands for Masocism – the art of hurting Myself.) I’m going to take you by the hand, and give you a few hints, tips and tutorials to help you start exploring your kinky side. But first, some housekeeping – The key phrase in BDSM is ‘safe, sane and consensual’ 1. Is it safe? Figure out a … [Read more...] about BDSM for beginners – a former dominatrix guides you and your partner through S&M
Atlantic FOUNDED IN 1857 by Sanford J. Ungar Jerry Ambro caught on early. He was elected to the House of Representatives from a traditionally Republican area on Long Island in 1974. He became a leader among the seventy-six brash new Democratic congressmen who arrived in Washington the following January, determined to remodel and revolutionize the institution. They deposed three committee chairmen, pushed through a number of significant procedural changes, and established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. It was a heady, exhilarating experience. Before many months had passed, however, Ambro was confronted with a typical problem: the Army Corps of Engineers was planning to dump 250,000 cubic yards of dredged spoil containing heavy metals into Long Island Sound. Although the dumping area was technically in Connecticut waters, Ambro’s constituents were alarmed that the polluted material would drift in their direction, and they thought their congressman should be able to … [Read more...] about Bleak House: Frustration on Capitol Hill
