10% payroll giving petition slow to attract sign-ups

first_img10% payroll giving petition slow to attract sign-ups You can download the Forum’s briefing on the 10% supplement from the Institute of Fundraising’s Web site, together with the petition form. Find them under the Tax Effective giving section of the site. The petition to persuade the government to maintain the 10% top-up on payroll giving donations has not attracted many signatures from the voluntary sector so far.A Payroll Giving Forum meeting today heard that only 700 employees of voluntary sector organisations had signed the 10% top-up petition in the past two months. The Forum is campaigning to encourage the Government to retain the 10% supplement after April 2003, when it is due to cease.It might be a hard campaign to win, but it will not get anywhere if voluntary sector staff, and fundraisers in particular, do not demonstrate their interest in retaining this useful top-up.

Building for May Day– ’on the shoulders of Dr. King’

first_imgILWU drill team takes part in MLK march.San Francisco — A confident, unified workers’ movement — that’s who was marching here on the April 4 anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.Spearheading the march were militants of United Service Workers West (USWW-SEIU) — the janitors, airport employees and other mainly low-wage workers playing a leading role in building for May Day general strike actions in California.A Black woman homecare provider said, “We stand on the shoulders of Dr. King and our other heroes. But what we’re building is a legacy of our own!”A USWW worker shouted, “Shut down the union busters, and that includes the biggest union buster of them all: Trump!”The emcee at the rally, a young man from Nigeria, emphasized, “We’re fighting for $15 and a union, but that’s just a first step toward living wages and a just society.”Robbie Clark, of Black Lives Matter Bay Area and Causa Justa/Just Cause, explained, “Today is the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s 1967 ‘Beyond Vietnam’ speech at Riverside Church in New York. And yet by any measure — wages, family income, unemployment, homelessness, levels of incarceration — people of color are falling further and further behind.“That is why over 50 organizations have formed a new coalition called ‘The Majority’ — because people of color are the majority — to oppose white supremacy, to promote Black and Brown unity, to fight for international solidarity not militarization, to fight for community needs not gentrification and displacement,” Clark said.The march kicked off at the King Memorial at Yerba Buena Park, moving down Mission Street to the spot where two waterfront workers were killed and scores injured by police during the West Coast Maritime Strike, the incident that sparked the San Francisco General Strike of 1934.Derrick Muhammad, secretary-treasurer of International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10, primarily a dockworkers union, pointed out that on a visit to that union’s hiring hall in San Francisco, Dr. King had been voted in as an honorary member of the local.“When they killed our beloved brother in 1968,” said Muhammad, “he was awakening the masses of the people — and the rulers of this country were very frightened by that. Official documents have revealed that Cointelpro was consciously seeking to prevent the rise of a so-called ‘Black messiah’ who could unify our people. Now, today, we are still facing the same racist system, the same oppression.”Several dozen other cities also held April 4 actions, supported by Fight for $15, NAACP chapters and the Movement for Black Lives. These included Memphis, Tenn.; Los Angeles; Atlanta; Chicago; Flint, Mich.; Las Vegas; and cities in Florida, Missouri, North Carolina and Virginia.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The submission was made before a bench of Justice Tashi Rabstan in an application for parole moved by Mushtaq Ahmad Peer, former Chairman of the Board of Professional Entrance Examination, sentenced to undergo rigorous imprisonment for a period of sixteen years by a Special Anti-Corruption Court in connection to a cash-for-paper scam. Opposing the application, the Crime Branch submitted that the applicant did not fall in any category of prisoners as proposed by the Committee in the backdrop of the Supreme Court’s order in In Re : Contagion of Covid 19 Virus In Prisons. In the said case, the top court had directed all states and Union Territories to set up ‘High Level Committees’ to determine the class of prisoners who could be released on parole for four to six weeks. It also observed that the prisoners convicted of or charged with offences having jail term of up to seven years can be given parole to decongest jails. The UT administration further submitted that medical procedure, as required by the Applicant was also being provided to him. Nevertheless, the bench noted that the Head of Prisons Department had been appointed as the “competent authority” under the Jammu and Kashmir Suspension of Sentence Rules, 2020 to grant “emergency parole” or “regular parole” to a prisoner, as the case may be. “There shall be, as provided under Rule 5, two types of parole to which a convict would be eligible. They are custody parole or emergency parole and regular parole. Custody parole, as envisaged under Rule 6, can be granted to a convict by an order in writing issued by Jail Superintendent under intimation to Head of Prisons Department and to an undertrial prisoner by the trial court concerned in the event of death of a family member of undertrial prisoner or marriage of a family member or serious illness of a family member or any other emergency with the approval of the range DIG Prisons. Rule 6 also envisages that the prisoners who have been convicted but their appeal is pending before the higher courts may also avail custody parole from the prison authority. Insofar as regular parole is concerned, the case of eligible prisoners shall be considered for regular parole by competent authority,” the court noted. Accordingly, the High Court has directed the Applicant to avail of the above remedy by approaching the High Powered Committee, comprising of Chairman of the State Legal Services Committee, Head of Prisons and Director General of Prisons. “In the event, applicant approaches the High Powered Committee, it shall consider and decide the application of applicant in accordance with the scheme/guidelines, laying down the categories for release of prisoners given the spread of COVID 19. Let such consideration be accorded and a decision taken within a period of one week from the date applicant approaches the High Powered Committee,” the bench ordered.

Delhi Victims Compensation Scheme Permits Grant Of Compensation In Case Of Custodial Deaths: DSLSA Tells Delhi High Court

first_imgNews UpdatesDelhi Victims Compensation Scheme Permits Grant Of Compensation In Case Of Custodial Deaths: DSLSA Tells Delhi High Court Akshita Saxena6 May 2021 2:05 AMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court on Tuesday directed the State Legal Services Authority (DSLSA) to expeditiously process the application for compensation made by the widow of an alleged thief, who died in judicial custody. On being informed that the Delhi Victim Compensation Scheme, 2018 permits the grant of compensation in case of custodial deaths, a Single Bench of Justice Pratibha M. Singh ordered, “the DSLSA ought to process the Petitioner’s application, and prayer for compensation under the Delhi Victims Compensation Scheme, 2018… The DSLSA may put in motion the procedure for determining the compensation, considering the fact that the deceased lost his life in judicial custody.” It is made clear that a decision on this issue has to be taken by the Authority within a period of two weeks and has to be communicated to the Court on May 25. Background The instant petition was being filed by the wife of the deceased, an alleged thief, seeking compensation of Rs.1 crore for his custodial death. She submitted that the deceased was subjected to torture by the police and even the Metropolitan Magistrate had recorded that his physical condition was not good. However, he was remanded to judicial custody on the pretext that he was beaten up by the public, where he passed away the next day. During the course of hearing, the Court observed that the status report filed by the Delhi Government is “lacking materials particulars” and is “sketchy”. Moreover, it did not mention any policy, which the State has in respect of compensation in the event any undertrial passes away while in judicial custody. Therefore, notice was issued to Delhi State Legal Services Authority which submitted that the Delhi Victim Compensation Scheme, 2018, permits the grant of compensation in case of such deaths. The DSLSA stated that if there is a loss of life in judicial custody, the legal heirs/dependents of the deceased would be entitled to compensation, which would to a minimum of Rs.3 lakh and maximum of Rs.10 lakhs. The Authority further informed the Court that no application for compensation was received by it on behalf of the Petitioner. At this juncture, the Petitioner submitted that none of the documents relating to the deceased’s death in judicial custody were supplied to the Petitioner and hence, she was unable to claim compensation. The Court has now directed the Delhi Government to provide all documents pertaining to death of Petitioner’s husband, i.e. MLC, post mortem report and other documents such as charge sheet, trial records, etc., within one week, to enable the DSLSA to process the application.
