Admiral looks at Linea deal as profits rise

first_img KCS-content Share Admiral looks at Linea deal as profits rise Wednesday 25 August 2010 8:16 pm whatsapp ADMIRAL GROUP could bid for Spanish insurer Linea Directa and is eyeing an expansion into the household market after growing its interim profit by more than a fifth to £127m.Admiral, which specialises in car insurance, said an offer for Linea Directa was a possibility at the right valuation. The Spanish business could be worth around €850m (£700m) based on the price at which its parent, Bankinter, bought out joint venture partner Royal Bank of Scotland’s 50 per cent share last year.Admiral finance director Kevin Chidwick told City A.M.: “It’s a ‘maybe’ if it was at a very good price, but we’ve got fantastic growth on the organic side too.”Separately, Chidwick said Admiral would launch a household insurance pilot project toward the second half of next year. The FTSE 100 company has a large database of motoring cover customers and would hope to leverage its brand to enter the home insurance space, Chidwick said.His comments came as rising sales and prices boosted Admiral’s pre-tax profit 20.5 per cent to £126.9m. The group, run by Henry Engelhardt, increased its half-year dividend 18 per cent to 32.6p and announced plans to hand out 1,500 free shares to each employee worth £6m in total.One dark spot was Confused.com, Admiral’s comparison website, which saw profits drop 20 per cent as it was outgunned by Comparethemarket.com. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orglast_img read more

After Amazon Vote: Unionize ALL workers

first_imgThe following edited remarks were made on an April 9 webinar entitled “The struggle continues — Next Steps for BAmazon Union and beyond — Organizer’s Meeting” organized by supportamazonworkers.org. Holmes is Workers World Party’s First Secretary and an organizer with the Workers Assembly Against Racism in New York City.  My heart, my solidarity goes out to the organizers and workers in Bessemer who fought so hard for this vote. The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union was outmatched and outgunned by this behemoth of a monster global capitalist corporation, Amazon. But still they did what, frankly, bigger unions should have done, who had more resources, infinitely more resources. The union took it on. But as comrade Saladin said, this is one battle; this is the beginning.Larry Holmes at Feb. 20 rally for Amazon Bessemer workers in New York City. WW PHOTO: G. DunkelThe vote in Bessemer is not just a problem or crisis or a setback, or however you want to characterize it. It’s not just a problem for the workers in Alabama or for the workers in the South or for Amazon workers; it’s a problem for the whole working class, for the whole labor movement and for the left.Most of us understood that we should not rely on 6,000 workers in Alabama to take on the biggest corporation in the world, a corporation that pretty much defines 21st-century global capitalism. It’s our crisis. Now labor must be challenged. This has to intensify a very necessary crisis inside the labor movement on all levels, not just the leadership, not just the Executive Council of the AFL-CIO, but most importantly at the rank-and-file level.That’s why I agree with Saladin [Muhammad] about going around and having meetings to talk to workers on a rank-and-file basis about this. The questions must be posed: What is labor going to do about this now? What is the response going to be? The only true answer is this: The working class and its organizations — not only the biggest and most important at the moment because of its resources — the organized labor movement must come up with a plan to respond to this, to organize Amazon — not just Bessemer — which has a million workers in this country, not including Whole Foods, which they own.How are the unions going to work together? What’s their strategy? What is their plan? Which unions are going to work together and not compete with each other? How are they going to win over the militants in groups like Amazonians United and Whole Foods United groups — like my good friend, Chris Smalls, the founder of the Congress of Essential Workers. They have a base in these Amazon and Whole Foods sites, and they feel alienated by the unions.Unions are not who they run to, and they have good reasons for this; that — most of us agree on. But the problem is, the reality of the situation means that we must deal with the labor movement, because the labor movement has the resources, the infrastructure, the muscle and the power. And the workers and the militants that have been organizing Amazon and Whole Foods are brave, strong; they’re salting Amazon and Whole Foods, but they can’t do it by themselves.It’s important for the unions — not to ignore them and not to dismiss them — but you’ve got to work with them and win them over. Another critical reality is the largest percentage of the working class is not in the union movement. But they must be told that even though they only order, if they can afford to, from Amazon, they’re important to the struggle.Of course, it’s the workers who work for Amazon and Whole Foods who are critical to organizing Amazon and Whole Foods. But the rest of us who are part of the working class, we’re on the outside; we are in the tens of millions on a global basis. We are in the hundreds of millions, but we have a stake in this; this is our fight.That’s why some of the mass mobilizations that we helped to organize Feb. 20 and March 20, in solidarity with the union fight in Alabama, were important. Those actions helped push the labor movement, which on many levels was not even involved in Alabama, to get involved in it. What we are saying now is that a part of our reaction to what happened yesterday and today is the disclosure of this vote, which made our days more difficult; we have got to respond to that.We want to throw out Sat., April 17. Some groups have already called actions before, that where we respond to, I would like those demonstrations to be in the thousands. But that’s not important. What’s important is that the left, that is seriously concerned about the working class and that is in this fight and not just observing it, has to find its voice.And we have to try to get others to come with us and say: No. We’re going to demand an end to this union busting that Amazon is involved in, the multimillion-dollar union busting that they brought to bear on these workers in Alabama. No.We’ve got to say that, while at the end of the day, the decisive struggle will be based on the workers in these workplaces. The whole working class has got to be mobilized to say we demand that Amazon and Whole Foods, and whatever other entities that have workers that it buys because it’s so rich, we have to demand that they accept the unionization of the workers.The working class has to say that’s a very necessary complement to the workplace organizing. I want to just mention some strategies going forward which I hope that others will echo on, disagree with or add to.Strategies for moving forwardA lot of us are organizing around the right-to-organize legislation known as the PRO Act, which is progressive, good and helpful. But it does not include recognizing card collection as the basis of an employer having to recognize a union. They still have to go the National Labor Relations Board route, which was a big problem in Alabama. We want “card check” that organizes collecting those cards, and once you have enough of them, that should be it.The boss has to sit down and negotiate with you, end of story. That’s not in the PRO Act. We’ve got to demand [its inclusion] in the PRO Act. Also that bill is hung up in the Senate, which makes it easy for President Biden and others to say they’re for it, but basically do nothing about it. We’re trying to understand why Biden has got all these powers and said he’s like FDR, pro-labor, [but] waited until the middle of the campaign to say something, not at the beginning.Why doesn’t he issue an executive order or series of executive orders that essentially puts the right to organize the PRO Act into law right away, including card check? We want to hear what people think about that and maybe organize a campaign around that to use that executive order.We want to talk about the formation of workers assemblies. In the example and spirit of what the Southern Workers Assembly has done, we can learn a lot. Where the labor movement is weak in the South, the Assembly has filled the vacuum.They have organized workers in states where it’s illegal to be in a union, where you can’t pay dues, but they’ve done it. They’ve got much to teach us. And the way the union movement is now, it’s not welcoming, except in the most rare instances, to migrant workers, to undocumented workers, to incarcerated workers, to sex workers who are trans workers, to gig workers, to Uber drivers. Who’s going to organize these assemblies?These workers assemblies, organized on a local basis, attempt to both organize workers and support unions and struggles and solidarize themselves with ongoing workers’ struggles locally and internationally.They are essential at this time to transforming the working-class movement and making it radical, making it inclusive and not exclusive. And it’s up to us. We can’t wait for somebody else to do it.May Day 2021 is coming up. How can we make May Day, three weeks from tomorrow, meaningful to what happened in Alabama, to the right-to-organize legislation, to organizing the unorganized? Should we issue a national call for May Day actions or with some key issues that we recommend that activists around the country take up?Left unity is crucialI want to speak to the need for left unity. In a lot of ways what we saw over the past two months in organizing the national days of solidarity with the workers in Alabama, was a kind of left unity. It wasn’t organized; it wasn’t groups that got together and talked to each other. But all of a sudden this group was doing it and that group and these groups that don’t work together, despite a lot of differences on big and small issues, not minimizing that.But clearly for any of us who are serious, we can’t make any motion — we can’t do anything unless there’s some serious left unity. Our organizations alone are too small. If we just want to comment on stuff, if we want to criticize, which is necessary, that’s okay. But if we want to do something, if we want to actually do something that makes a difference to transforming our class, to organizing workers, to transforming the working-class movement, to changing what it is now to what it should be, we got to work together.Different organizations, socialists and communists worked together in the 1930s. They did it from Minneapolis to Flint to everywhere — they did it. We’ve got to move in that spirit. The Democratic Socialists of America, by far the biggest left grouping and not a homogeneous group politically, even they are not big enough. And those of us in smaller groups, where we don’t have the size in certain areas, we have the experience to be helpful.So as we move forward, let’s try to do what we did over the past two months. If we can do that, and we’re really serious, I don’t think there’s any end to what we can do. The main point — and I’m repeating myself — is that it’s one thing to have a meeting and sit aside and comment and criticize. And that’s important, especially if it educates and doesn’t demoralize views, or isn’t just cynical.But we also have to be concerned about what we can do when we’ve worked together. And if we have to struggle over the kind of structures that we need for real left unity, let us do that. But let us do that honestly. And let us do that with revolutionary determination to have an impact on the future.Twitter: @monifromhomeFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Access to the site from within Saudi Arabia has been blocked since May 2006.“No government should be able to block access to a website without obtaining a court order first,” the press freedom said. “But this site is an independent and reliable source of news about the Arab world and we regard its blocking as an arbitrary and unjustified act of censorship.”Interviewed by the news agency Reuters yesterday, Elaph editor Sultan al-Qahtani said the blocking was put in place as a result of pressure from religious conservatives who are “against modernity.” He added: “It’s a war against the future. In time, I think it’s a losing battle for them – no one can fight the future.” The authorities have not explained why they are blocking the site.Elaph employs 90 journalists and gets 1.5 million visits a day. Reporters Without Borders and the Arab human rights group HRinfo wrote to King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al-Saud asking him to stop censoring the site when access was previously blocked for a short while in March 2006.The job of Internet censorship in Saudi Arabia is entrusted to the Internet Services Unit, a government agency that gets its instructions from the security services.

All were freed by their kidnappers.In yesterday’s kidnapping, the three journalists were taken from a central Gaza City hotel frequented by foreigners, just hours after Israeli troops stormed Jericho prison to capture Ahmad Saadat of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), who was being held for the 2001 murder of the Israeli tourism minister.Responsibility for the abduction of the journalists was later claimed by a PFLP-linked armed group that said it belonged to the “Jericho brigades.” A spokesman for the group said: “We want the Israeli forces to withdraw from Jericho and we ask the French government to intervene to protect Ahmad Saadat and the other prisoners.”Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas later appealed for calm and urged Palestinians not to attack foreigners and European interests in the Palestinian territories.
