The establishment of an industrial court here in Guyana to settle labour disputes have been long requested by Trade Unions and was even considered by Government last year but never materialised.However, miners who are at the depths of their despair with workplace struggles for better wages are now strengthening these calls.Several workers of the Aurora Gold Mines, owned by Guyana Goldfields, who would have recently protested against their employer, told Guyana Times that an industrial court is desperately needed in Guyana to provide unbiased judgment. So far, negotiations between workers and companies have not produced fruitful results in their opinion.One worker told this publication on Saturday, “At this time, we’re not treated fairly when the company decide what they want to give us and what they think is good enough. There is not much the Labour Department could do because the company is the one with the higher hand. They employed us and they can hire new people. It is time for us to get a court that we can turn to when things are not going right.”Another worker contended that in their situation, workers have to wait for a long period of time before any significant changes are made.“Right now, we just get out bonus and we don’t know if we are getting anything more for now. We as miners have to work in conditions that are so bad and yet nothing is being done for us. The union could only do so much,” a worker told this publication.Their representative, the National Mine Workers Union, which is yet to be officially recognised, have also shared the same position as the workers.President of the Union, Sherwayne Downer also explained to the Guyana Times that the mining industry is “drowning” with labour and other related issues. As such, an industrial court will alleviate these problems.Back in December, Government was assessing the possibility of establishing a labour court in a bid to ensure quicker resolution of industrial disputes.Recently, workers of AGM had downed their tools and initiated strike actions for two days after calls mounted for them to be officially represented by a union and other improved working conditions and wages.After negotiations, a letter was issued to employees granting the second quarterly bonus of 7.6 per cent on July 25, while asserting that the formula for the next bonus will be reviewed.The notice, seen by this publication, indicated that a Site Compensation Committee will be established by August 31, to review “compensation related issues including those related to contract employment”. By October, the final report will be produced. Contributions to the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) will also be reviewed.
Delaying tactics…says appeal has no meritAfter months spent in the court contesting the No-Confidence Motion, the Government is set on returning to the court, this time to appeal Chief Justice Roxane George’s recent ruling that persons who were previously registered cannot be removed from the National Register of Registrants.Former AG Anil NandlallWhen contacted, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall on Saturday said that now that the Government has appealed the ruling, he and his legal team will have to consider whether or not to file a cross-appeal.Nandlall, who is leading the legal team for original applicant Christopher Ram, also called out the Government for its “about-face”, from initially proclaiming a victory to now returning to the courts to challenge their ‘victorious’ ruling.Current AG Basil Williams“The Attorney General, who first claimed a “massive victory” after the Chief Justice’s ruling, is now appealing the ruling. In essence, he wants the Court of Appeal to add “residency” as a qualification for registration when Article 159 of the Constitution, which enumerates the qualifications for registration, does not so provide,” Nandlall subsequently said in a statement.“This appeal is therefore completely without merit but will provide another platform for the Government Commissioners at GECOM to dilate. Rest assured, next week, they will argue that GECOM (Guyana Elections Commission) should await the determination of this appeal.”The former AG pointed to Section 11 (1) of the National Registration Act, which states that “No person shall be registered in more than one divisional register or more than once in any register established under Section 9.”He noted that Section 21 of the same National Registration Act also provides that “Every person who procures, or induces another person to procure, his registration in more than one divisional register or more than once in any register established under Section 9 shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine of five thousand dollars and to imprisonment for six months”.“The aforementioned provisions of the law not only prohibit duplicate registration but make it a criminal offence and every enumerator who registers a person already registered, commits a criminal offence,” Nandlall pointed out.“The aforementioned two Sections of the National Registration Act along with the Chief Justice’s ruling aggregate to establish beyond doubt that the data generated by the House-to-House exercise is grounded in illegality.”Despite all this, Nandlall noted that the Government Commissioners on the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) continue to push for this exercise to continue and, in fact, for an alternative database to be set up.“In any event, this will take months to accomplish and the only use which can be made of it is to extract the new registrants… these new registrants can easily be captured in a cycle of Claims and Objections. These arguments advanced by the Commissioners simply constitute another clumsy attempt to delay the elections.”After several meetings with the six Commissioners and Chairperson, retired Justice Claudette Singh, GECOM seems to have made little progress in ascertaining a timeframe to hold elections. According to Nandlall, there seems to be an attempt to appease both sides of the political divide. But he noted that this boils down to the Government’s agenda of delaying elections being facilitated by GECOM.“The reality is that the demands of one side is for constitutional compliance while the demands of the other side is to perpetuate constitutional non-compliance. In such a matrix, there is simply no place for compromise. Constitutional compliance is the only option. The Chairperson of GECOM knows this more than most others,” Nandlall said.The appealDespite calling it a partial appeal, Attorney General Basil Williams is contesting most of the major points from the Chief Justice’s August 14 ruling. One of the major contestations in the Notice of Appeal (NOA) is the residency requirement for being registered.The Chief Justice had ruled that persons, once registered, could not be removed by enumerators without just cause. In the AG’s appeal, however, the Chief Justice is accused of being misconceived in law by not properly considering Section 6 of the National Registration Act.According to the AG, Section 6 of the Act makes residency a requirement for registration during the qualifying date period. The AG is also alleging that the Chief Justice, somehow, breached the separation of powers doctrine by ruling that GECOM could not remove registrants who were alive and well.In fact, there are 16 points in the NOA in which the AG claims the CJ misinterpreted the law or misdirected herself. The AG is asking for the Chief Justice’s judgment to be set aside and for costs to be paid to him.The original appellant, anti-corruption advocate Christopher Ram, as well as Chief Elections Officer Keith Lowenfield, the Commissioner of National Registration and GECOM itself were named as the respondents.
This has led to difficulties for the English clubs in dealing with their European rivals — whose window doesn’t close till August 31.“What you usually see is European prices sit up there and then 7-8 days before the window closes they start to come down a bit that is why you see a bit of a run to the line,” Smith said.Because of the early deadline in England, Premier League clubs this time round were seen as “desperate”, leaving foreign clubs asking themselves: “Why should we reduce our prices.”“That is where really it is a bullet in the foot,” said Smith, speaking ahead of Thursday’s closure of an unusually quiet summer transfer window.Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, who went through the transfer window without buying a player, said the sawn-off transfer window could hurt Premier League clubs competing in Europe down the road.“Personally I think it’s not right. I think it’s right if you agree with all of Europe and all the different countries,” he said.“To have 20 days less (than European rivals on the transfer market) I think is not a thing that is going to help you.”-‘Wait and see’ –Smith, who has just co-founded ‘The Fans Agency’ which for the first time allows supporters to become part owners of an agency investing in footballers, said that Manchester United, and rumours concerning their French World Cup winning midfielder Paul Pogba’s future, are a case in point.Pogba — who moved to United for a then-world-record £89 million from Juventus in 2016 — is said to be attracting interest from Barcelona amid reported tension between the player and United manager Jose Mourinho.“United are sitting there, let’s say three days ago, and they know (Mino) Raiola (Pogba’s agent) is in Barcelona, and he is with Juventus,” said Smith.“So do they (United) go round trying to replace him in case he goes, or will they just take a chance on it and wait and see and maybe we can loan somebody if he goes.”For Smith, who initially forged a successful career in the music industry producing albums for the likes of the late American ‘Queen of Disco’ Donna Summer and Rhythm and Blues singer Billy Ocean, United have their hands tied now the window has closed.“So United now sit and think, do they have the intelligence to know whether Pogba is going to go or maybe go,” he said. “Barcelona could buy him till the end of August but United can’t buy a replacement.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The uncertainty over France World Cup winning midfielder Paul Pogba’s future has not helped his club Manchester United with the English Premier League’s transfer window closing earlier than their European rivals leading agent Jon Smith told AFP © AFP / GABRIEL BOUYSLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 9 – The decision by English Premier League clubs to bring the summer transfer window to an early close compared to Europe was equivalent to firing a “bullet in the foot”, super-agent Jon Smith told AFP Thursday.Smith, who numbered among his clients legendary duo Argentine Diego Maradona and Dutchman Ruud Gullit, said world governing body FIFA’s uniform regulations on the transfer window were due to come into effect next year, but the Premier League opted to change their system earlier.
