The properties would be expected to cost at least €250,000 each which would need over €12 million from philanthropists.Local authorities would also pay rent to Dublin Simon which would use this income to maintain the units and to source additional housing stock. Dublin Simon would be responsible for choosing suitable tenants, collecting rents, repairing and maintaining the properties, and returning them to the benefactors in good condition at the end of the lease period.Irish stockbroker Davy is helping the charity promote the fund to high net-worth individuals, while estate agents and solicitors have offered to work with Dublin Simon for free on completing the property transactions.The scheme is the initiative of food entrepreneur and housing agency chairman Michael Carey, and corporate financier Neil O’Leary. “We developed the idea and advised Dublin Simon on how to structure it,” Mr Carey told the newspaper.Mr McGuinness said that the fund has already received eight adjoining, two-bedroom terraced homes near Francis Street in Dublin 8 from an anonymous benefactor. These have been provided rent-free for a 10-year period.According to PWC there will be no tax advantages to investors in the scheme and the scheme will be “neither good nor bad from a tax perspective”, suggesting the involvement of wealthy individuals and businesspeople in the scheme is purely philanthropic.In 2017 Dublin Simon had an income of €19.2 million, of which €8 million came from fundraising. Expenditure for 2017 was €15.7 million while the charity has reserves of €22 million.  313 total views,  1 views todaylast_img read more

  • Mississippi union organizers at Nissan vow to fight on

    first_imgA UAW supporter outside an employee vehicle entrance at the Nissan vehicle assembly plant in Canton, Miss., Aug. 4.In July, union organizers at the Canton, Miss., Nissan vehicle assembly plant took a historic step toward becoming the first unionized plant of a foreign auto company in the U.S. The United Auto Workers filed a petition asking the National Labor Relations Board to hold an election to determine if workers wanted the UAW to represent them. The election, the first in the 11-year organizing drive, took place on Aug. 3-4.Late on the night of Aug. 4, organizers learned they had lost the election by a wide margin. Ernest Whitfield, a member of the union’s Volunteer Organizing Committee, was a poll watcher and witness to the vote counting. It was “heartbreaking,” he told Workers World, to see all the ballots marked “no” being counted. With over 3,500 out of 3,700 Nissan workers voting, the final result was 62 percent against union representation.The vote does not mean, as Nissan would have the public believe, that workers love the company. There is anger on the floor over unsafe conditions, the growing use of lower-paid temporary workers and widespread racism directed at a workforce that is majority African American. “Labor rights are civil rights” was the theme of a solidarity march that drew 5,000 supporters earlier this year and gave a shot in the arm to the organizing drive.Anti-union intimidationUnderstanding the pressure that workers were under, organizers are not throwing in the towel.Scare tactics were ratcheted up the moment the election petition was filed. Workers were bombarded with anti-union propaganda at every turn — from a PowerPoint presentation shown round-the-clock on televisions in the break areas to anti-UAW commercials on television, radio and the internet. Mandatory daily shift-start meetings featured company videos attacking the union.The main threat was possible closure of the plant if the UAW came in. Workers were also threatened with losing their vehicles, leased under an employee program that Nissan said it would terminate if the union won, and with cuts in pay and benefits.Letters were mailed to the homes of “Pathway” workers — Nissan workers who began work in the plant as employees of temporary agencies such as Kelly, Minact Yates, Onin and Excelsia. The letters said those workers could lose their jobs if the union won. Company messages blamed the UAW for General Motors plants closing down and warned workers that having a union would force them to take their problems to a union steward — as if they had a better chance of resolving a grievance by talking to their boss one-on-one!Nissan managment also exploited an unfortunate corruption scandal in the UAW involving a deceased senior official and his widow taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from Fiat Chrysler. News of federal indictments for the illegal bribery scheme was leaked right after UAW supporters working at Nissan filed with the NLRB.Anti-union intimidation culminated the Tuesday before the election. Nissan rented a big tent, seating 1,000 people, in which every worker on every shift was forced to attend a captive audience meeting. They were addressed by the plant manager and other management higher-ups. All the same threats were reiterated and combined with a feel-good message from former bosses. School buses were used to transport workers from remote areas of the plant to the tent. The company gave out free bottled water with custom “Nissan” labels.Whitfield, the volunteer union organizer, estimates Nissan spent between $5 million and $10 million on its campaign of fear.Nissan has flouted labor laws repeatedly, leading the NLRB to file an unfair labor practice charge against the company. The UAW filed another seven charges over the illegal intimidation that took place in the weeks leading up to the election. The NLRB could declare the election results invalid and order another election.“This is the length to which the company went to essentially scare the hell out of everybody to get a no vote,” Whitfield explained. “We’ll take a moral victory,” he added, from the fact that almost 40 percent still backed the union.Organize the South!The ongoing organizing campaign at Nissan has ramifications beyond the 6,000 workers inside the Canton plant. There are over two dozen auto “transplants” — U.S. plants of foreign auto companies — in this country, with all but a handful in the southern states. They have deliberately chosen to locate in so-called “right-to-work” states where union strength is lowest; only 6.6 percent of Mississippi workers belong to a union.The UAW has been unable to organize a single transplant. In 2014 the union lost a representation election at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga, Tenn., plant.There, too, fear and intimidation affected the vote outcome. In that case the right-wing, racist political establishment led the anti-union drive. Sen. Bob Corker raised the specter of a plant closing just days before the election.Since then the UAW has won an election to represent 160 Volkswagen skilled trades workers, but VW refuses to recognize them as a bargaining unit, while the vast majority of plant workers remain unrepresented.The UAW’s organizing efforts have also been hampered by its own failings. For too long the International leadership has sold concessions — from multi-tier pay schemes to oppressive work schedules to cutting retiree health care — to the membership so that the Big Three auto companies can be “competitive” with the transplants.The UAW argument has been that concessions are unavoidable as long as the unorganized transplants have lower labor costs. But the flip side is that workers would be more enthusiastic about joining a fighting union that refuses to give up the gains it won through decades of class struggle. This was a factor in the loss at VW.The courageous struggle for worker and civil rights at Nissan is forging ahead. “Going forward, the idea is for that 40 percent who voted yes to educate others,” said Whitfield. “Knowledge is the key to drive out fear; people voted no out of fear because of what they don’t know. We are going to stick together. We believe we can actually win over the percentage we need to win an election. We are going to try this thing again.”By building the organizing campaign as a civil rights movement, the Mississippi Alliance for Fairness at Nissan has taken the first steps toward the social unionism that drove the Congress of Industrial Organizations to victory after victory in the 1930s. Labor must be part of an entire social movement and orient itself toward rank-and-file self-organization and power.The organizing committee can become — and is already to some extent — a pre-majority organization in the plant that fights for all the workers even without having formal collective bargaining power. Other unions, especially the United Electrical Workers, have rich experience with this model. Rank-and-file workers need to establish industrywide networks to share information and strategize collectively. The Southern Workers Assembly is developing cadres of workers all across the region that have organic relationships to community organizations.A win at Nissan would not only be a gain for U.S. autoworkers but also bring a huge boost to the urgently needed effort to organize the South.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

  • Baseball looks to keep win streak alive against UTA

Photo by Jack Wallace Camryn Almeidohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/camryn-almeido/ Camryn Almeidohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/camryn-almeido/ Hockey drops 2-game series to DBU Camryn Almeidohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/camryn-almeido/center_img Facebook printFollowing a sweep over Cal last weekend, TCU baseball is off to one of their best starts in program history. The Frogs are now 10-1 on the season for the first time since 2017, their second-best start ever under head coach Jim Schlossnagle. TCU’s best start under Schlossnagle came in 2017 with an 11-1 record. The team’s only loss came against Minnesota in their sixth game of the season, 7-6.The team credits some of its success at home to the fans.“We have the best fans probably in the country or at least in the Big 12,” pitcher Russell Smith said. “They come out and support well, and we play well for them.”UTA is 8-3 on the season after winning the series against Utah last weekend. The Mavericks have won five of their last six games heading into Tuesday’s matchup. TCU’s pitching staff have shown their depth to start the season. The pitchers only gave up five runs in the three-game series against the Bears.TCU leads the Big 12 and ranks ninth nationally with a 1.93 ERA and the Frogs have allowed two or fewer earned runs seven times this season.“For the most part we are not giving up too many free bases,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “We are throwing a lot of strikes and making the other team earn what they get, and that’s a good recipe for winning baseball. I have always said the game begins and ends with starting pitching.”The Frogs have not allowed an earned run in their last 25 innings pitched.Pitching will continue to be an important factor for the Frogs as they face UTA on Tuesday as the Mavericks are hitting .245 as a team. The probable starting pitcher is Riley Cornelio. Cornelio is 1-0 for the season after his start against Abilene Christian. UTA’s pitching staff has a 2.13 ERA on the year, has registered three shutouts and is holding opposing batters to a hitting percentage of .201.UTA’s pitching will be up against one of the nation’s top offenses — TCU’s 8.3 runs per game is second in the Big 12 and 22nd nationally. The Horned Frogs are 94-46-1 against the Mavericks since first playing each other in 1969. The teams play three times each season; Tuesday is the first time they will face each other this season.The Horned Frogs host the Mavericks tomorrow at Lupton Stadium.
