George ?Georgie? Rampersad is a bona fide panman who is making waves in Denmark, spreading the gospel of national instrument.

474 Victor Gill Ramirez Venezuela// Make Immigration an essential service 
Esta noticia ha sido leída 92 veces
Agregada el Viernes, 17 de Noviembre del 2017

It?s refreshing to hear the PM speak so candidly about the recent Immigration fiasco. His words sum up what many ordinary citizens are thinking and hopefully the message will be understood, so we?ll never have a repeat of this. (Remember ?Day of Total Policing? which was never fully explained and no one was held accountable?) My suggestions: (1) the definition of Industrial Action be redefined to encompass these types of labour actions; (2) Reclassify Customs and Immigration as an essential service; (3) Review contingency plans every quarter for all government services;(4) Implement machine readable passport readers to reduce labour dependence...  Leer Más...

I read that the Prime Minister was annoyed and that he has said that civil servants should not hold the country to ransom. He seems to have forgotten that the country is being held to ransom by criminals who are forcing citizens to live in fear of their lives and who in the long run, will have to be confined to their homes after working hours. The recent upheaval by the Immigration Officers merely affected a ?few? of our citizens whilst the perpetual action of criminals affect almost the whole of our population all the time. The PM and his...  Leer Más...

In T&T there is an often underreported problem about the relationship between the weight of children?s school bags and their health. A colleague recently raised his anxieties with me. He assessed the bags of two female relatives who weighed 41lbs and 76lbs respectively. The burden of their bags was 9.4lbs and 24lbs each. I am also concerned because, on occasion, I have had to tote my grandchildren?s bags and I found myself protesting about the weight. I have asked many times whether the teachers did not provide the children with time tables so that they could bring only the books...  Leer Más...

As state oil company Petrotrin awaits the findings of Canadian company Kroll into the ?fake oil? scandal relating to overpayment to a contractor for oil from the Catshill Field, the Auditor General is raising concerns about the process being used to verify oil and gas supplied by oil companies to the Ministry of Energy. In his April 2017 report, Auditor General Majeed Ali said he has been reporting on lack of data for the last three years and the only response from the ministry is that verification of oil and gas is done by calibration of meters at fiscalisation points...  Leer Más...

President of the Joint Trade Union Movement (JTUM) Ancel Roget, who is predicting a one-third cut in the workforce of State-owned Petrotrin, has told workers not to stay in a ?comatose? state but to band together to stop Government from implementing regressive policies. Speaking at a Conference of Shop Stewards and Branch Officers (Cossabo) at the Oilfields Workers? Trade Union headquarters in San Fernando, Roget said while Government continues to mismanage T&T?s resources, the workforce was being forced to bear extreme hardship. He said workers throughout the country are facing unemployment. ?Government?s policy is to bring revenue in line with...  Leer Más...

It may not be the result expected by the national team coaching staff, but the thought of failing to defeat teams with a lower FIFA ranking and also following two impressive victories, may have worried Dennis Lawrence and his staff. Having not seen the first game, I made it compulsive to attend the second against Guyana, who had defeated us not too long ago. After reading the reports given to the media by the coaches of both teams, it led readers to believe that both teams were more than ready for a serious encounter. The Guyanese coach indicated that his...  Leer Más...
