Faced with layoffs, downsizing and privatization of public services, public workers in France numbering in the hundreds of thousands held a countrywide protest on March 22. Many railroad workers stayed off the job and announced a series of off-and-on strikes throughout the spring. Some teachers and workers in government administration also struck, as did air traffic controllers.The mass protest opened a defensive action against the so-called “reforms” President Emmanuel Macron and Prime Minister Édouard Phillipe plan to put into effect, with little discussion in parliament. They want to cut more than 120,000 jobs in the public sector over the following four years and to transform the state-owned railroad company, the SNCF, into a private company traded on the stock market. The 149,000 railroad workers would lose their protected civil servant status, subjecting them to layoffs.According to a report on the website of the Pole of Communist Revival in France (PRCF), there were 65,000 demonstrators in Paris, of whom 15,000 were high school students; 55,000 in Marseille; and thousands in each of two dozen smaller cities in various parts of the country. In some places, police attacked the demonstrators with tear gas.The struggle unites the interests of all public workers with the entire working class, all of whom require public services, including health care and education as well as transportation.Macron, closely connected to the big French banks, was elected president last year by a large margin. His party, which was newly created to support his election, also won a strong majority in Parliament. This puts his ruling-class grouping in a position to pass laws easily. The only way to stop him is by stopping work and taking to the streets.Railroad workers plan to follow a schedule of two days of strikes followed by three days of working from April 3 to June 28. Other public workers are expected to also strike.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Medical College, AMU, Aligarh and Bagala Joint District Hospital, Hathras, government officials and representatives of the people involved in the destruction of evidence.”The facts clearly indicate the involvement and complicity of certain UP State police and officials of the State government machinery in manipulation and destruction of evidence and shielding the accused in respect of the subject crime.”- Plea in SCThe plea states that petitioner is constrained to prefer the present criminal writ petition in the form of a public interest litigation after some glaring facts have been revealed regarding the State support for manipulating and destroying evidence in the Hathras gang-rape and murder case, from the affidavit filed by the State of UP in titled as “SATYAMA DUBEY AND OTHERS VERSUS UNION OF INDIA AND OTHERS” before the Supreme Court.It is averred that the very fact that relevant medico-legal examinations for ruling out sexual assault were not conducted immediately after incident especially when the undergarments were blood stained and the clothes of the girl were torn, the samples were tested for semen nearly 8 days after the incident, and even before investigation is complete, reflects the complicity of certain UP state police and officials in the Government machinery.Further, it is stated that on the aspect of the response of the State government that the cremation was done to avoid a law and order problem is neither bonafide nor reliable.”….since there was no threat to law and order if the body of the victim was handed over to the family of the victim after the post-mortem; the threat as alleged in the intelligence report existed only in reference to the police involvement to cremate the body and was made by the lower caste groups who had concerns about justice for the victim girl.”The plea also points to the fact that certain state officials like the District Magistrate of the area were seen openly threatening the family victims. “All this clearly indicates a collective effort by the State machinery to coerce and intimidate the witnesses. It also shows the hostility that is being openly meted out to the public at large as could be seen from the facts that the village was completely cut off for two days to the outside world in order to ensure that there is no transparency,” the plea reads.In this context, the petitioner urges the top court to issue directions for causing investigation in the offences, as aforesaid, by independent special task force [excluding the CBI and UP State Police] who would be of impeachable integrity and having experience of criminal investigation, to be appointed by and monitored by this Court.Additionally, the plea also seeks issuance of directions by top court to the respondents to to deposit all the evidence including the video-recordings of the statements of the victim and her relatives on 14.09.2020 and 19.09.2020 as well as the medico-legal evidence collected at the time of conducting the autopsy by Safdarjung Hospital, Delhi for examination by an independent forensic laboratory for relevant markers and grant protection to witnesses in the case and family members of the victim by the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Auburn Police Department(WALT HARRIS, Ala.) — A second person has been arrested and charged in the disappearance of 19-year-old Aniah Blanchard, who has been missing for a month and is the stepdaughter of UFC heavyweight fighter Walt Harris, Alabama officials said.Antwain “Squirmy” Fisher, 35, was charged with first-degree kidnapping, Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes told ABC News on Saturday.Fisher was arrested Friday night by the Auburn Police Department and transported to Lee County Jail, according to Hughes.Hughes said he could not provide more details regarding the charge.Auburn’s chief of police, Paul Register, also confirmed that Fisher, of Montgomery, had been arrested.Blanchard, a student at Southern Union State Community College in Wadley, was last seen at a convenience store in Auburn, Alabama, on Oct. 23.Ibraheem Yazeed, 29, was the first person arrested in her disappearance.Yazeed was arrested on Nov. 7 in Escambia County, Florida, and was extradited to Alabama. He is charged with kidnapping in the first degree, a designation that includes the intent to inflict physical injury. Surveillance video from inside the convenience store showed both Yazeed and Blanchard inside at the same time, and a witness outside the store said he saw Yazeed force her into her car, according to an arrest affidavit.Police said they found evidence in Blanchard’s vehicle, which was found abandoned near an apartment complex in Montgomery, which indicates that she may have been the victim of foul play.Blanchard’s father, Elijah Blanchard, told ABC News in a previous interview that his daughter “would not leave” without telling anyone.“She always calls me at the end of the day to see how my day was,” Elijah Blanchard told ABC News on Oct. 28. “She would never not contact somebody and let them know what she’s doing.”Her stepfather, UFC heavyweight fighter Walt Harris, has shared multiple photos and videos of Blanchard on his Instagram page.“Please help find my baby Aniah Blanchard. She is missing [in] Auburn,” Harris, one of the top UFC contenders in the heavyweight division, wrote to his more than 36,000 followers. “Please help!!!! Any info message me on here or call the Auburn police … PLEASE SHARE THIS!!!!”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

I want to use my language skillsOn 2 Apr 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article I have recently completed a French language course and would like to gainsome international HR experience. I have five years generalist experience in anITrole and am CIPD qualified. Any suggestions? Peter Sell, joint managing director, DMS Consultancy You don’t say whether you want to work for an international company in theUK or you are looking for work overseas. As a CIPD member it might be worth youapproaching its international department for information and advice. It couldalso point you in the direction of relevant networks. Another strategy is to target large international companies. As you haveexperience in the IT sector this could be the most profitable area to startwith. It might be an interesting exercise to identify some French companies andsend them your CV with a covering letter in French. Suzanne Taylor, HR consultant, Macmillan Davies Hodes Your depth of experience in a generalist HR role will give you a solidbackground from which to embark on a UK-focused role with international remit.You should ensure your language skills remain well-practiced. If your Frenchlanguage skills are now at business level, this will be a skill in demand. Undoubtedly, the easiest way for you to make this transition would be withinyour current organisation if possible. Otherwise, your best option would be inapplying to French companies or multi-national blue chips that are likely tohave bigger HR departments and more opportunity for employees to takesecondments. In applying for such roles, ensure you concentrate as much on yourtalents and experience as your aspirations for the future. Peter Wilford, consultant, Chiumento You could move to a UK-based company which has scope for international work.However, most international assignments tend to go to people with a proventrack record in their field and in cross-cultural working. An idealintermediary position to gain these skills would be a roving role gainingexposure to a range of subsidiary companies. If you have few commitments then you could move to France. You will findthat routes into local employment are structured in a similar way to the UK,though there are differences (for example CVs with photograph). Temporary work(maybe using your IT skills), while waiting for the right opportunity, wouldenable you to build up a network of contacts, enhance your language skills andgain experience in cross-cultural working.

A little extraOn 1 Mar 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Themerger of the Halifax and Bank of Scotland brought HBOS into the financialworld, and, as John Williams, head of operational training, retail, reveals, italso gave him the greatest challenge of his career. Stephanie Sparrow reports Ask English television viewers who is the promotional ‘face’ of financialgiant Halifax and they will have little hesitation in identifying thebespectacled and cheerful Howard of the Sheldon branch who has reggaed his waythrough its TV adverts for the past couple of years. However, in Scotland it is a different story. Scottish viewers are as likelyto name a cool blonde in blue tartan check who has had only an short dalliancewith Howard (remember them flying over desert islands on the back of a giant swan?).This is a valid but rather flippant way of introducing the training andcultural challenges facing HBOS since it was formed from the £ 28bn merger in2001 of the Bank of Scotland and Halifax. Namely, how to function as oneoperation while respecting the identities and traditions of two businesses withstrong regional ties. Enter John Williams, head of operational training (retail) HBOS, tacklingwhat he admits is “the biggest challenge” of his career to date as hesought to implement a new counter system in 300 Bank of Scotland branchesthroughout Scotland. This part of the change programme, which started inDecember 2002 and is scheduled to finish in summer 2003, will involve 3,500employees from major Scottish conurbations to the Highlands. Following a 17-year long career in the Halifax, which has encompassed manyaspects of the business, Williams had a four-year spell in this training role.His retail training team (which is responsible for high street activity such asagencies and estate agencies) has grown from six to 33 members with 12 fullyfocused on the changes in Scotland. Williams places this team, many of whomhave a background in the branches, at the centre of the merged company,operating as consultants and working closely with the business on trainingneeds analysis and objectives and evaluation. He prides himself on his and theteam’s product knowledge which proved essential in understanding the trainingchallenges presented by a post-merger review. “After the merger there was a review of all the systems, process andproducts we offered, to determine the best way forward. Choices have been madeon which best systems we would use across the company and which products wouldsell in England and Scotland, using those different brandings: Bank of Scotlandor Halifax.” Shared ideas The review found the Halifax had witnessed a major investment in technologyover the past couple of years, hence the more sophisticated counter techniques,and has focused on sales. “There were a lot of ideas that could be sharedacross the Bank of Scotland, whereas the bank itself is very strong on serviceand is a well-known and trusted brand name in Scotland,” he explains. It also identified a need to integrate the companies for the sake ofcustomers and called for an accelerated change programme, as HBOS wants toquickly offer both Halifax and Bank of Scotland customers the ability to useany branch in Scotland. “We wanted to bring together a series of changes to systems, productsand services and to accelerate that change over maybe seven months to ayear. Phase one involved a bringingtogether of all elements of the counter system and processing to be followed bythe products,” said Williams. He admits it was a “massive challenge” which he could only embarkupon after spending five months actually getting to the point of knowing whatto design. “It was like having new recruits to the company. But if a newrecruit joins they come into a branch where the other colleagues areexperienced. The scenario here was that there were 3,500 new recruits who hadno-one else next to them to say ‘this is how you do it.’ ” To compress a two-year change programme into such a short time meantWilliams had to move quickly but smoothly, so opted for an evolving programme.”Early groups would learn, who would be used to teach later groups, soit’s a satellite kind of growth – an evolution. Now the last group are socomfortable because everyone has built knowledge and shared that with themexperientially.” In order to initiate the skills evolution, Williams decided to take 106people out of Scotland, train them early and develop them as ‘experts’.”They were used in the early locations, then moved across the country in asupport role but will eventually go back into the business as very highlyexperienced staff. In addition, we are putting in a series of project managerswho, in effect, are a separate driving force ensuring successful implementationand providing regular reporting on progress,” he said. “Rooms in key locations have been developed as additional trainingsites to what we call ‘training technical centres’ which simulate the newcounters. We have 18 rooms giving us 144 seats a day and need every one ofthose. Around 37 trainers are involved in delivering the training in Scotland,around 20 of those were pulled from branch work and training backgrounds in theEnglish operation and had their skills brought up to speed. The practicalities and logistics of this training programme could be mindboggling, unless tackled with a well-organised approach, partly because thebranches have to maintain business as usual while training is taking place.What Williams admits was virtually a ‘scientific formula’ was brought into playas he drafted in 10 people to man a new unit, sending invitations to workshops,ensuring trainees arrived with the right material and pre-work at the righttime. Each colleague goes through a five-day interactive workshop programme spreadover a fortnight, to cover the new counter system, backed up by pre-work in thebranch. There is also work shadowing with colleagues who have gone live alreadyand in-branch practice after the programme so staff are confident by the daythey go live. Training takes six weeks, and to keep the business running, Williams has dividedthe branches into quarters and takes out one quarter of the branch at any onetime. Relief staff are co-ordinated to ensure the branch is fully manned duringthis period. Williams put a number of strategies in place within the training workshops tocheck the level of understanding and competence. These include quizzes,competence measures which are captured as management information, and materialfor discussion with branch managers. Further back-up is provided via learningmaterials and reference guides which they take with them from the workshops.Branch managers also play key roles in identifying branch champions or trainingpartners to support colleagues and create what Williams believes is”energy and excitement” around the countdown to the relaunch of thebranch. Rapid change All this builds to the ‘live’ day when the new counter system is switchedon. But Williams’ work does not stop there as three weeks after it goes live hereviews the branch’s progress with its manager and the area manager. Such a rapid change and the pressure to learn could frighten some people butWilliams has taken this into account. “That’s why we’ve put in differentsupport programmes,” says Williams. “We’ve taken out people toconstantly go branch-to-branch to reassure others. There are helplines both fortechnical issues and understanding of a process. Also we want to share successand have made a video of early colleague feedback which will be sent to allbranches.” He is mindful that some large-scale programmes across a geographical spreaduse online learning, but although there is online back-up after the workshops,Williams is happier that he chose the interactive option with lots of peoplecontact. “We want people to enjoy their jobs and lives. We are trying to makeworkshops lively and interactive and the role playing within the workshops isabout getting you as close to live as we can, which removes the fear. We wantcolleagues to feel very comfortable, confident and supported. ” At time of writing Williams believed it could take six months before heknows if the training was successful which is not overly cautious as theestimated roll-out means training goes into 15 branches a week. “We are in the early part of the training,” he says. “We’vetrained all the experts, all the trainers and we’ve done some of the earlybranches. The early feedback from project managers, who provide weekly updates,indicates that it’s positive and colleagues are enjoying the experience. “We have delivered on what we would see as the customer serviceobjectives, sales objectives and also colleague advocacy. “It has been a key objective for the company and it should start togenerate savings and sharing and best practices,” says Williams.
