From Selma to Boston: ‘I’m fighting for the union!’

first_imgGeorgia Scott of Steelworkers Local 8751, Boston School Bus Drivers Union, spoke on Aug. 21 with Workers World reporter Minnie Bruce Pratt about the drivers’ ongoing struggle against union-busting corporate giant Veolia/Transdev. The company has illegally fired four union leaders and flagrantly violated contract conditions, resulting in almost 700 union grievances. Scott, the treasurer of Team Solidarity for the union, has been first a bus monitor and then a bus driver for 20 years. In 1965, when Scott was only nine years old, she participated in the historic “Bloody Sunday” march for voting rights over the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala., where she was born.Women union members at Workers World meeting say, “Victory to the school bus drivers!” Georgia Scott is second from right, back row.WW photo: Stevan KirschbaumWorkers World: How does Selma connect to your struggle today as a bus driver?Georgia Scott: This is the same struggle as 1965 in Selma. Schools were limited — all Black, all white. The education system did not work for people of color. We didn’t have the books, the tools we needed. There were places we weren’t allowed to go because of our color, like in the movies, in restaurants. There were neighborhoods we weren’t allowed to go into. The purpose of the movement was to give us the same rights as all the other people.I didn’t really understand a lot of what was happening, but I saw the segregated schools, the segregated parts of town. I didn’t understand Selma was as big as it was, and I was born there!Right now in Boston our children can go to school where they need to go to meet their needs. I did not have that opportunity growing up. Veolia cutting back on the buses, that will limit our children, their safety and their choices of education.The fight in Selma is the same fight as now.WW: How do monitors and drivers help keep the children safe?GS: The children get to know me, tell me if there is something going on at school or home. If there’s a fight on the bus, I’m the one who stops the fight. I am the one who is supervising. I am the one who will stop the child from being harmed.A camera is not going to protect the child. It’s me. I’m the one who will protect the child. That’s the most important piece of our work, the monitors and the drivers.We are the safety zone for the children.WW: Why is this union a social justice union — fighting also for other people, marching with people for Palestine, for LGBT rights and so forth?GS: I think we are all born with the will to resist. For me it comes with being born and raised in Alabama. My mother was on that bridge too, and I learned from her.I also think for this union it goes back to the 1974 busing struggle [against segregation] when the drivers were transporting our children into South Boston where they weren’t wanted. The drivers that came on board had the mentality of standing firm and being strong, knowing that the things going on were wrong.This union is based on listening, going out into the community, listening to the parents, building on that, and needing to struggle.WW: Some in the union are from Cape Verde and fought for liberation from Portuguese colonization, and many in this majority Haitian union are part of the struggle against imperialism in Haiti with Fanmi Lavalas.GS:  Our strength could also be we are a mixed group of people, from all walks of life. We’ve had different struggles. From being in the union, I’ve learned how to fight.Sitting at the table with Transdev in particular — I call it Trans-devil! — I’m looking across the table at one of them with a smirk on his face. He is dealing with thousands of children. There is nothing funny about talking about children on the street corner, and then boxing drivers in about the children’s safety.So when I see that smirk, my feeling is I have to fight this guy, and I need to be around people who know how to fight this guy.WW: How is Veolia/Transdev changing the way it computes your pay?GS: The hours we are paid for are the hours listed as the time it takes to drive a route — the flat rate.The flat rate, before Veolia put in the telematics system, was computed by experienced people who knew the specific routes on the road. They knew how long it really took to drive that particular route.Arbitration ruled against the use of GPS for the creation and re-evaluation of flat rates, but the company is still illegally using it every day.Now that the company is using GPS to compute the flat rate, the time they allow on routes is shorter and impossible. It doesn’t allow for fire trucks, accidents, emergencies on the bus. Or enough time to stop, get the child across, take a seat, get a seat belt on. They allow half a minute for that.We have to be able to take care of whatever is going on, and be paid for that. For instance, last year it was so cold, there was ice inside my bus. I told dispatch I was not going to move until I warmed the bus up for the children.But management said to me “Oh no, just go, put the kids on, and go“ — in a bus with ice inside!I said no! I’m saying no to a lot of things this company is ordering.WW: I heard Veolia/Transdev tried to make the drivers reapply for their jobs when the company took over.GS: Most of us, 95 percent, did not do the new hire application — one of the first things the company asked for. We said we are not new employees, the company is new. If anyone should do a new application, it should be the company — and if they had applied to us, they would not have gotten the job!WW: Why do workers need a union?GS: My brother is still in Selma. He’s 57 years old, worked at a hospital in the kitchen, in and out of the freezer. He developed arthritis, and the doctor put him on medical leave. The company fired him. Twenty years on the job. No union, no support, no protection!Now he’s working at a laundry. I went home and rode out to his workplace to have lunch with him. My brother told me he almost could not get away to go out with me. The company policy is: “You can’t have people coming here on the job.”That’s what these big corporate conglomerates want, to control us. They’ve got the power and the money.They’ve got the money. We’ve got the people.One person standing alone has no power. All of us together, that’s our strength.I know the importance of the union. This is not just about Boston. It’s going on in the rest of the county, and it’s a global issue.So I’m going to fight for the union!For more information, go to workers.org and search for “Boston school bus drivers step up the fight.”To support USW Local 8751, go to youcaring.com/rehirethe4.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Reevaluation of coleoid cephalopod relationships based on modified arms in the Jurassic coleoid Mastigophora

first_imgMastigophora brevipinnis Owen, 1856, is a ‘fossil teuthid’ presently considered to be a member of the coleoid cephalopod Suborder Loligosepiina Jeletzky, which in turn has been placed by various authors in or near the Vampyromorpha Grimpe. Recent morphological and biochemical analyses indicate that vampyromorphs are more closely related to the Octopoda than to the Decapodiformes. Fossils of Mastigophora from the Oxford Clay (Jurassic: Callovian) show soft-tissue preservation and evidence of arm crown specialization. Some of these fossils have up to eight short, thick arms with circular sucker-like structures and filiform distal extensions, plus what appear to be the bases of two thinner ventrolateral arms. The latter lack proximal suckers and curve medially to insert into the arm crown, similar to the tentacles that are the modified ventrolateral arms of living squids and cuttlefishes. This suggests that the thinner structures were decapod-like tentacles. If Mastigophora had tentacles homologous with those of modern decapods, then it was a decapod, because this synapomorphy defines the Decapodiformes. This indication of decapod affinities for Mastigophora brings into question the relationships of the other ‘fossil teuthids’. The inferred relationship of the Loligosepiina, including Mastigophora, with the Vampyromorpha, based largely on similarities of gladius morphology with that of living Vampyroteuthis, may reflect shared plesiomorphic characters.last_img read more

The Brookes boy

first_imgI    study publishing here, which is quite a mixed, skills-based course. I applied to this after Eton; it’s a strong basis for going into marketing or advertising. Our workload involves about thirteen to fourteen hours of lectures and seminars a week, which are very interactive and geared towards group-based work. Other than lectures, we have about three personal reports as well as two presentations to do a term. Most people here work very hard; certainly most people I know here are very, very motivated. The publishing course at Brookes is very well respected, and the business school is also very, very popular. Most people I’ve talked to in the city reckon that Brookes is one of the best new universities, and I’ve met a lot of alumni who have all got very successful jobs. I don’t think that Brookes is marketed more towards upper-middle class students: I’d say 60% of our student population haven’t paid for their education. Brookes does have a reputation for Sloanes and husband shopping, but it’s a reputation that I think is ill-deserved, assumed through most people coming up and seeing people with blonde hair. True, there are quite a number of them to see, but I’d say last time I was up in Newcastle that kind of population was a lot more dense.We’re big drinkers as much as any other university. There are quite a lot of large nights out – we go out to clubs three or four times a week, Brookes’ favourites being Escape, The Bridge and Clementines. I’ve heard a couple of wild drunken stories about breaking into Oxford colleges, although for the record it wasn’t me! But let me just say that four or five of the colleges have walls that are very easy to scale. As to which ones, I couldn’t possibly comment. You can sense a different vibe between Brookes and Oxford nights. Brookes students seem more enthusiastic and chatty. This could be because the people there have more things in common and possibly less to prove, but admittedly that’s merely speculation. Do Oxford students have superiority issues? I think that’s something you have to judge on an individual basis. I don’t think you can ever make a generalisation about Oxford students – certainly my friends at Oxford aren’t like that at all. Concerning how we feel about them, there are absolutely no hard feelings whatsoever; everyone I know at Brookes has at least two friends at Oxford anyway. To us, Oxford University is just the place down the road. I think there is actually a lot more animosity from Oxford towards Brookes students than the other way around. To be honest, most people have chosen to go here as their first choice, so have no hard feelings about anything. We’re supposed to be the fittest university in Britain. From personal experience I’d say that’s true, although the types are actually a lot more varied than just the blonde hair and short skirts. Well, a lot of people I know, to be fair, have blonde hair and wear short skirts. Indeed, that’s the stereotype that may be applied to Brookes girls, accompanied by signet-ring wearing, shirt-and-jean wearing, long-haired boys. Degree of superficiality? I’d say no more than any other university. It’s very much a case of “you can’t judge a book by its cover”. People are generally very quick to judge short skirts and bleached blonde hair, but I think there’s a lot more to the look then that. I mean, maybe you’ll have this girl who will wake up tomorrow and think “I’d like to dye my hair blonde” – I don’t know, I don’t know why I’d dye my hair blonde. But I think to take a look at that phenomenon and think they’re all clones would be a gross underestimation.ARCHIVE: 1st week MT 2005last_img read more

Tropical Home Paradise in O.C. Gardens

first_imgThis home boasts an array of amenities including a pool, tiki bar and large entertainment system at 6 E. Aberdeen Road in Ocean City. (Photo courtesy John Giovanni Caccuitti) By Maddy VitaleAnyone who purchases the new home at 6 E. Aberdeen Road in the Gardens section of Ocean City will never be lonely.Guests will be treated to a gaming theater, tiki bar and pool, a Japanese steakhouse-style griddle and a lot more in this Tommy Bahama-inspired coastal retreat.“Garden’s Grand Seashore Estate,” as it is called, is being offered at $2.6 million and boasts 3,200 square feet of living and entertaining space in this five/six bedroom, 4.5 bathroom home.Designers John Giovanni Caccuitti and his daughter, Kellie Caccuitti Meier, spent more than a year creating a showpiece.There are even some surprises nestled in this spacious estate, including a secret passage to a bedroom by way of a wine door.This Tommy Bahama-themed home by award-winning designer John Giovanni Caccuitti is a dream vacation estate and one-of-a-kind showpiece three houses from the beach.“We try to think of what they would want to enjoy on vacation or in a home. We put conversation pieces in,” Caccuitti said while standing in the room behind the wine door.One of Caccuitti’s favorite features is the commercial kitchen. The professional griddle allows chefs to cook breakfast for a crowd.The professional griddle gives people a bird’s eye view of their meals being prepared. (Photo courtesy John Giovanni Caccuitti)“The kitchen island gives people a place to gather around and talk as they watch their meals being prepared,” he noted.When it comes to entertainment, all guests have to do is head outside to the swim-up tiki bar and have a seat, view their favorite games on the two televisions or just watch the waterfall. At night, the LED lighting showcases what feels more like an island getaway than a home in a residential neighborhood.Caccuitti and his designer daughter, Kellie Caccuitti Meier, meld their male and female tastes to create the perfect décor, amenities and entertainment systems that make this year-round home or vacation retreat an inviting setting for entertaining family and friends.“We are really great partners,” Meier said of her and her dad. “He does most of the architecture-based things and is more concerned with the electronics, whereas I am more concerned with where the furniture goes and the female touches.”The tiki bar and heated pool give the coastal home a getaway feel. (Photo courtesy John Giovanni Caccuitti)And when it comes to perfection in homebuilding and designing, nothing the father-daughter duo does is hurried.“It really takes us a year and a half to complete a home because it has to be just right. If we don’t like something, we change it,” Meier pointed out.The gaming theater on the top floor features a drop-down HD theater screen, HD projector and surround sound. Caccuitti and Meier describe it as heaven for kids to play life-size video games.It is just one more way they said they created a home with all generations in mind.The home features large drop-down theater screens. (Photo courtesy John Giovanni Caccuitti)For the grandparents who may want to stay inside and relax, while the party is out at the pool, the great room offers a perfect view of the scene outside, Meier said.Donna Ang, the realtor for the property and an agent with Fox Real Estate in Ocean City, called the home spectacular and added that the special amenities make the property so special.“All of John and Kellie’s properties are built with the family and extended family in mind,” Ang said. “There is space for everyone and really cool features and surprises throughout.”The wooden slats in each doorway are made with the finest craftsmanship. (Photo courtesy John Giovanni Caccuitti)The shore décor throughout includes driftwood color stained slats on the master bedroom doorways to complete the Tommy Bahama theme, creating the ultimate island beach estate look.Other touches that add to the coastal design are lighted etched glass artworks of iconic Ocean City scenes in all of the bathroom showers by artist Farrah Morgan.Caccuitti said there are built-in HD televisions, including two Alexa-controlled smart home computer/TVs, incorporated into the kitchen cabinets. There are also televisions in the bathroom mirrors and a home theater system in the great room.“We wanted to carry through the house the whole theater experience,” Caccuitti explained.The bathrooms feature etched glass artwork on the shower doors depicting iconic Ocean City scenes. (Photo courtesy John Giovanni Caccuitti)Bob and Marykay Lojewski purchased a home in the Gardens section built by Caccuitti and Meier last year.“Kellie and John don’t just construct a house, they build a destination where family and friends can relax, enjoying each other’s company,” the Lojewskis said. “Simply put, they put the wow factor into shore living.”For a private showing contact Donna Ang, Fox Real Estate, at 609-703-8970 or email [email protected] Real Estate Realtor Donna Ang is handling the property.The home has curb appeal.last_img read more
