BCEs Cope says heavy spending on Bell networks showing results with subscribers

first_imgTORONTO – BCE Inc. reported strong subscriber growth on Thursday, which company executives said were fuelled by Bell Canada’s network improvements and new services.The company added a total of 198,005 internet, IPTV and postpaid wireless customers — up 8.8 per cent from last year — although it also saw declines in pre-paid wireless, legacy wireline and satellite TV services.Several analysts said in research notes and on a conference call with BCE executives that they were surprised by the strength of additions in IPTV, the fibre-optic television service that competes most directly with cable companies.Drew McReynolds of RBC Dominion Securities raised his price target by $1 for BCE stock to $62 per share — slightly above its current market price — and noted IPTV subscriber growth exceeded satellite TV losses by 2,000 activations.He wrote that “we believe BCE is laying the groundwork to strengthen its wireline competitive position in 2018 and beyond.”But he added that, over the long term, RBC expects there will be a “stalemate” in the competitive battle between Canada’s main telecom and cable rivals because most of them own both wireless and wireline services.Chief executive George Cope told analysts said that Bell’s introduction of the Alt-TV product, a user-installed service that charges $10 to $15 per month less than its main fibre optic products, had been popular with condo dwellers.“We think that positions us very well . . . from a price-competitive perspective,” Cope said.Among the newer players in Canada’s television industry have been over-the-top services such as Netflix, which compete against the telecom and cable companies on price and an alternative lineup of content.BCE’s (TSX:BCE) network enhancements also come as Canadian cable companies — including Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B) and Shaw Communications Inc. (TSX:SJR.B) — are nurturing a new generation of TV service.Shaw, which competes more with Telus (TSX:T) in western Canada’s TV market, has already begun to offer its new video offering based on X1 technology from Comcast — the U.S. cable giant.Rogers, which is a more direct competitor with BCE in television in Ontario and Atlantic Canada, said last month that it’s still in the testing and planning stages for bringing out its new X1 service in stages next year.Wade Oosterman, group president for Bell Canada and BCE, said the company has been able to grow its IPTV landline subscriber base quarter after quarter.“We are obviously working on things to keep our product ahead of theirs. And time will tell to see if that differentiation is valued by consumers. Our bet is that it will be,” Oosterman said in an interview after the conference call.BCE added 44,424 high-speed internet subscribers during the quarter, bringing the total to 3.8 million. It also added 36,399 internet-protocol TV subscribers during the quarter, bringing the total subscriber base of IPTV to 1.5 million.Bell added 117,000 additional post-paid subscribers to its wireless services in the three months ended Sept. 30 — the best third-quarter for BCE since 2012Cope declined to answer analyst questions about how customers are responding to the new Apple iPhone X — coming out Friday — or the iPhone 8 that has been on the market since late in the third quarter ended Sept. 30.“We’re just happy to have products for the fourth quarter. It should create a lot of excitement and a lot of traffic in a very important selling season with a lot of advertising support,” Cope told analysts.Earlier Thursday, BCE announced that it earned $770 million attributable to shareholders in its latest quarter, up from $752 million a year ago. Operating revenue totalled $5.68 billion, up 5.0 per cent from $5.41 billion.The profit amounted to 86 cents per share for the quarter ended Sept. 30, down from 87 cents per share in the same quarter last year when it had fewer shares outstanding.Some of the year-over-year growth was due to BCE’s acquisition of Manitoba Telecom Services, which closed in March, for $3.9 billion in cash and shares.last_img read more

World not living up to its responsibility to protect in Darfur Iraq

Highlighting in particular the killings in Darfur, along with those in neighbouring Chad and the Central African Republic (CAR), Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Jan Egeland regretted that the “world woke up too late,” having failed to stop the violence when there was still time in 2003 or 2004.”We as an international community have solemnly sworn a responsibility to protect. And we are not living up to that responsibility to protect in this part of the world, nor in the other areas, like Iraq … or in Gaza – which I called a ticking time bomb earlier this year”, Mr. Egeland told reporters in his last press conference to be held in Geneva.Looking back on his three and a half years as Emergency Relief Coordinator, he said there had been almost as many failures and successes in the international community, highlighting developments in Liberia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Nepal and northern Uganda as showing how these formerly conflict-wracked States were rebuilding.Mr. Egeland also said that the mortality rates of Darfurians displaced by the violence and who are now living in camps had gone down because it was the best-organized humanitarian operation on earth despite all the difficulties involved, although it was still only a temporary solution.“Were they willing to tolerate in 2006 that millions and millions of civilians lived in fear of their lives month after month after month?… My point is that it is [an] unsustainable [situation]. Every 10 months there is a million more people in a desperate situation needing emergency relief assistance to survive,” he said.Four million people – two thirds of Darfur’s population – are now in need of emergency assistance, while at least 200,000 people are estimated to have been killed as a result of the conflict between Government forces, allied militias and rebels seeking greater autonomy, with more than 2 million others having been displaced.Mr. Egeland also lamented increasing violence in Sri Lanka and Afghanistan and described the loss of life in Iraq as an “outrage,” noting that his first visit as head of the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) had been in 2003 to see the bombed out UN headquarters where his colleague and predecessor, Sergio Vieira de Mello, had been killed.“One hundred or more dead people every day and night is an outrage… I know of no other place on Earth where so many people are killed, massacred and tortured to death as in Iraq.”Turning to more positive developments over the past few years, Mr. Egeland cited increased cooperation between non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the UN, as well as the establishment of the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) – the multi-million-dollar UN mechanism set up this year to provide funding for humanitarian activities in response to sudden emergencies.However he also warned that the Security Council sanctions on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), imposed after their recent nuclear test, could lead the donor community to be less generous in aid to North Korea. read more

Central African Republic deploring recent violence UN envoy says dialogue is only

In a statement, UN Special Representative Parfait Onanga-Anyanga, also reassured the population about the presence in the field of the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), which he heads up, and its partners to avoid an escalation of violence.“MINUSCA strongly condemns the use of violence to resolve differences. We call for restraint to ensure that recent unfortunate events will not lead to a larger drama, including more human life losses and material damages and a step back for peace consolidation,” Onanga-Anyanga stated in a message aired on Tuesday on Guira FM, the mission’s radio station. Mr. Onanga-Anyanga’s call for calm came in the wake of incidents Monday and Tuesday in Bangui. The Mission had also reported that incidents farther afield in Bambari and Bira were quickly brought under control.“We make an appeal to all people of good will,” he added while urging religious leaders, community leaders, civil society, politicians and national authorities to raise their voices “to avoid an escalation and [senseless] violence.”In his message, Mr. Onanga-Anyanga reassured the population, stressing the coordination between MINUSCA and its partners, namely the Sangaris (French forces) operation, to avoid the escalation of violence. “We worked very closely with Sangaris. Our forces have been at work all night. We are present, we are in the most difficult neighbourhoods,” he said, while reaffirming that MINUSCA would work with all Central Africans, “whatever their differences, so that the country to move out of this simply unacceptable situation.” He went on to condemn reported violence against the international forces including MINUSCA on Tuesday and aid workers in September. “This violence must stop. The international presence in the country is nothing but helping the country move forward throughout these difficult times and to support the reconciliation process which is essential for the return of peace, stability and prosperity for all in CAR,” Onanga-Anyanga concluded.The Mission had earlier condemned an attack that took place Monday in Bangui against a delegation of the Union pour la paix en Centrafrique, ex-Seleka (Union for Peace in Central African Republic, or UPC], which had reportedly traveled from Bambari to participate in consultations with the Forces Vives. The delegation was attacked by “unknown elements” in the eighth district of the capital. One person was seriously wounded, and was taken to the MINUSCA Level II Hospital in Bangui. The whereabouts of at least three of the delegates is currently being investigated.“MINUSCA calls on the actors behind this violent attack to release any hostages they might be illegally detaining. The Mission also exhorts all actors to calm and restraint and to resolve their differences through dialogue,” said a statement.In addition, Mr. Onanga-Anyanga called on all armed groups to abide by the Brazzaville Cessation of Hostilities Agreement signed on July 2014 as well as the disarmament, demobilization and reconciliation agreement, signed in Bangui in May 2015. “Violence will never be a solution; dialogue and reconciliation are the only way for the Central African Republic to overcome this crisis,” Mr. Onanga-Anyanga stated.He also noted that MINUSCA reported that the attack coincided with the consensus-building dialogue currently in progress, which seeks to establish an electoral calendar between the Head of State of the Transition, the national authorities, and the international community. MINUSCA denounced the attack as a “direct attempt to use violence to disrupt, once again, the positive developments underway,” and called on those behind it to release any hostages they might be illegally detaining. read more

Analysis How an RTÉ satire possibly helped bring down a government

first_imgI was once accosted by a politician, who shall remain unnamed, on a bridge crossing the Shannon in Limerick and he attacked me over Hall’s Pictorial Weekly, and said that it was disgracefully irreverent and very unkind to politicians, etc., etc., and as he walked away he said, ‘but if there’s any chance of a mention, don’t forget me’.When Hall died in 1995, his obituary in The Independent focussed largely on that programme, with the opening line noting ‘His fans claim that Frank Hall had the distinction of single-handedly capsizing the stern-faced Irish government of Liam Cosgrave in 1977′.  Though having offered somewhat differing views in the past, Frank Kelly concluded in 2011:With the wisdom of hindsight and more maturity, I think that can happen, but it’s an accident waiting to happen, but it doesn’t mean that the agenda of the programme is to bring down the government.  It means that it’s in the right place at the right time to do it.  It just takes something to tip everything over.The 1977 election There was widespread expectation among journalists, Fine Gael supporters and other political observers that the coalition would be the first in the history of the state to be returned for a second term.  On the eve of the 1977 election, the Sunday Independent ran the headline ‘Coalition are favourites’, while the British Embassy in Dublin felt the coalition ‘could well gain a slightly increased majority’.And at Fine Gael’s Ard Fheis on the weekend of 21 and 22 May 1977, there was a mood of confidence among delegates.  The exception was a young Indian-Irish girl who, in March 1976, used tarot cards for the Sunday Independent to predict Cosgrave’s defeat!But behind the scenes, there were some warnings that re-election was not inevitable. A memorandum sent to members of the cabinet in 1975 indicated a level of awareness of the tipping point of which Frank Kelly spoke. Marked ‘top secret’, it warned that it was ‘self-deluding to pretend that the possibility of electoral defeat is not a real one’.  Inflation, farmer incomes and unemployment were identified as the key areas likely to cause defeat.While satirical sketches kept the spotlight on the government’s often unpopular decisions, it seems more probable that it was the impact of such decisions, rather than Hall’s Pictorial Weekly, that caused the defeat of Liam Cosgrave’s government.Dr Ciara Meehan is lecturer in history at the University of Hertfordshire. The fortunes of the Fine Gael-Labour government are explored in her newly published book A Just Society for Ireland? 1964-87 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) WITH ADVANCE PUBLICITY for Oliver Callan’s New Year’s Eve special promising sketches featuring President Michael D Higgins and his aide Kevin McCarthy, RTÉ reportedly asked that the satirist tone down his portrayal of the President and his right-hand man. Politicians have questioned the consequences of political satire on numerous occasions in the past. Perhaps most notable is the association of Hall’s Pictorial Weekly with the defeat of the Fine Gael-Labour government at the 1977 general election.Broadcast on RTÉ between 1971 and 1980, the satirical programme was the creation of Frank Hall and it featured a newsroom set in the fictitious village of Ballymagash. The Fine Gael-Labour coalition, formed after the 1973 election, offered Hall and his team much to work with.The cabinet included such larger-than-life figures as Garret FitzGerald, who famously wore odd shoes on one occasion, and Conor Cruise O’Brien, prone to making remarks that contradicted the official government line. And with a global economic crisis occurring just months after the coalition took power, characters such as the Minister for Hardship were easily created.The Minister, also known as ‘Richie Ruin’, was the Finance Minister Richie Ryan who had the unenviable task of handling the state’s finances at a particularly turbulent time. Praised by The Irish Times in 1973 for delivering the ‘greatest social welfare budget of all time’, Ryan found his 1976 budget speech the subject of a Hall’s sketch three years later. In it, he was seen to promise the provision of bowls of gruel to mothers and children, the reopening of the workhouses and the return of the ration book.(Video: IrishCountry.ie/YouTube) The treatment of the Fianna Fáil government formed after the 1977 general election was not as severe.  Critical observers attributed this to Hall’s alleged political leanings towards that party.  Hall rejected these accusations, and instead explained that the difference in treatment was due to the nature of the new cabinet.  Fianna Fáil Ministers were less likely to pursue a solo agenda, while there was no particular ‘stand-out’ personality around the cabinet table, Hall argued.  He recalled one episode featuring Martin O’Donoghue, the new Minister for Economic Planning and Development, but that viewers struggled to identify the politician being satirised.Reaction from politiciansIn a research interview for A Just Society for Ireland?, Frank Kelly, who played several roles in the programme, recounted how the actors themselves had much input into the sketches: “If you characterised a thing a certain way and he liked it, he’d extend that.  He’d go on writing that way”.When asked if any politicians ever complained to him about the way they were portrayed, he recalled one particular incident:last_img read more

University of Alaska braces for cuts warns of economic impacts

first_imgUniversity of Alaska Fairbanks (Creative Commons photo by Jimmy Emerson)As the legislature’s conference committee hashes out the state’s operating budget for the upcoming fiscal year, the University of Alaska is standing by, waiting to see just how large the fiscal dent will be.Download AudioDepending on legislative action, the University of Alaska will face between a $50 million to $75 million budget shortfall this year.That leads to one commonly-asked question of UA President Jim Johnsen – is there more you can cut?“Of course there’s more that could be cut,” Johnsen said. “At the same time, every single program, every degree, every single service that we provide meets a need to some extent, number one, and number two, there’s a constituency for it.”“We didn’t make up these programs.”So far, nearly 60 academic programs are on track for elimination, with another 24 under consideration.And as the university whittles down academic programs and other services, jobs are affected as well.One-hundred-thirty positions have been cut through lay-offs or attrition, and almost 170 more are impacted by furloughs.Depending on the legislature’s funding decisions, those numbers could grow substantially. And, Johnsen says, with each staff reduction, comes a direct economic impact extending beyond the university.“But, there’s a tradeoff with every single one of them,” Johnsen said. “You can say, ‘cut the beurocracy.’ OK, well what does that mean? Pick a number – 200 people, who are not gonna be shopping at Fred Meyer’s anymore, or Safeway or wherever. They’re not gonna by cars at Kendall’s or wherever. They’re gonna leave the state.”“Whatever it might be, it has a major economic impact.”Johnsen says if the cuts are more gradual, the university should be able to take a more measured approach to its reductions.But, if the cuts skew toward the higher end of the spectrum, Johnsen says that might not be the case:“We wouldn’t have the luxury of the time to consciously, carefully weigh these trade-offs, we would simply have to make some tough decisions very quickly in order to hit these numbers in the coming fiscal year with some serious impacts, certainly, on our ability to serve the state’s needs,” he said.Aside from operating budget cuts, Johnsen says he’s not optimistic about the funding situation in the capital budget.The Board of Regents asked for $34.8 million to complete construction of UAF’s Engineering Building. Governor Bill Walker, however, did not include funding for the project in his proposed capital budget.The partially built Engineering Building currently costs the university $1.4 million per year to maintain.last_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … Azim Premji | The ‘trustee’ of Wipro wealth bids farewell Wipro Chairman Azim Premji.ReutersAzim Premji, the iconic businessman who built software services giant Wipro from scratch, will step down as its chairman at the end of July. The $8.5-billion software behemoth said last month Premji, 74, was retiring after helming the company for 53 years. Here’s the full text of the speech Premji made at the company’s AGM in Bengaluru on Tuesday.This year marks the 75th year of creating value for our stakeholders. Wipro was established in 1945. It is an important milestone and we have pride in how Wipro has grown as an exemplar of a successful, ethical and socially responsible organization.If we look back at the journey of Wipro in the last seven decades, from a small vegetable oil company to a leading information technology company that we are today, we have evolved by constantly re-inventing ourselves and creating newer opportunities. This has been possible because of the dedication and hard work of Wiproites, and our absolute commitment to our Values, which we call the Spirit of Wipro.Along this journey, we have always focused on building capabilities that will create business value for our clients. Today, transformative digital technologies are emerging at an unprecedented rate and technology is becoming part of the core for all products and services. Established business models are being challenged to give way to new.To lead in this time of rapid change we have sharpened our strategy into four pillars based on what our clients need i.e. Business Re-imagination, Engineering Transformation and Modernization, Connected Intelligence, and Trust. In order to build the capabilities that are needed to deliver these strategies, we have been investing significantly in four areas — Digital, Cloud, Engineering Services and Cyber Security. While we invest in new capabilities, we also strive to remain lean. For example, we divested our data center business in FY19. This has improved our return on capital employed. The new Wipro logoSpecial arrangementDeep responsibility to drive inclusive growthThere were several bright spots in our overall performance in FY19. On a full-year basis, we grew 5.4 percent in constant currency. Two of the business units – BFSI and CBU grew by 16 percent and 10 percent respectively. Our Digital revenues grew by 33 percent Year-on-Year in constant currency. We won our largest-ever deal of $1.5Bn from Alight in the US. This deal is a testimony to the capabilities in enterprise-scale modernization and transformation. For the year, our operating margins improved by 1.8 percent because of our relentless focus on the quality of revenues and costs.Our EPS for the year ending March 31st, 2019 grew by 18.6 percent Year-on-Year, which was the best in the last 5 years. We improved our working capital substantially and our free cash flows were robust at 106 percent of our net profits.We have a capital allocation philosophy of providing a regular and stable payout to investors keeping two important considerations, one that of building long term stakeholder value and two that of having sufficient liquidity for future investments. Consistent with this philosophy, we declared a dividend of Rs 1 per share, completed a bonus issue of one equity share for every three held in March 2019, and also announced a payout of Rs 105 billion through buyback to the shareholders on April 2019. The Board and the shareholders have approved a proposal to buyback equity shares of the company and the process will be completed by August 2019 subject to the approval of SEBI.As a large technology company that employs 1,70,000+ people, we believe that we have a deep responsibility to drive inclusive growth. Technologies like digital and AI are disrupting the way services are rendered and the ability to learn becomes vital for our employees. At Wipro, we have made significant investments in re-skilling our employees in digital technologies.We are also using TopGear, our social learning and crowdsourcing platform as a workforce transformation tool as it has 2000+ learning assignments across 200+ skills. Today we already have 90,000+ employees participating through TopGear. Localization is an important initiative we are driving to create a global, diverse and distributed talent base. In the last few years of running this program, we have successfully localized in all our major markets like the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Africa, and the Middle East.It is quite clear that climate change is one of the greatest challenges that human-kind has ever faced. It is equally clear that businesses must fully contribute to tackling this challenge. Wipro has led the business community on climate action over the past decade. This year, we have significantly scaled up the use of renewable energy for our operations, which now contributes 40 percent of our total consumption. Recycled water now contributes to 42 percent of our total water usage.Equally, Wipro believes that all businesses must contribute to the communities that they are citizens of. Our social and community initiatives have deepened and grown over the years. Education has been the primary focus of our work for close to two decades now. Till date, we have partnered with 166 organizations working in school education. Wipro Earthian, a sustainability education program focused on water and bio-diversity, has reached out to 8,600 schools over the last nine years. The Wipro Science Education fellowship in the USA, which we started in 2013, works in seven sites across 35 school districts in improving STEM learning in schools serving disadvantaged communities. This year, we are collaborating with Kings College London and Sheffield Hallam University to provide rigorous continuous professional development to STEM teachers working in schools that serve disadvantaged communities.Our employees are also deeply connected with our local communities, across the world. Through Wipro Cares, our employees have worked on education for disadvantaged children and for children with disabilities. They have also worked with partners who provide quality primary health care services to underserved communities.I have always believed in Mahatma Gandhi’s dictum, that we must remain ‘trustees’ of our wealth for society, not its owners. As announced earlier, I have irrevocably renounced more of my personal assets and earmarked them to the endowment which supports the Azim Premji Foundation’s philanthropic activities. The total value of the philanthropic endowment corpus contributed over time is Rs 150,000 crore, which includes 67 percent of economic ownership of Wipro Limited.Wipro will continually transform and scale new heights Wipro Chairman Azim Premji, who also owns PE and VC firm PremjiInvest, at an event in New Delhi September 26, 2013.Reuters fileI am pleased to share that Rishad Premji, Chief Strategy Officer and Member of the Board, will take over as the Executive Chairman of Wipro Limited with effect from July 31, 2019.Rishad brings to this role new ways of thinking, broad experience, and competence that will lead Wipro to greater heights. He has been an integral part of the leadership team since 2007 and has a deep understanding of the company, its business strategy, its culture, and its heritage. He is also completely committed to the values which form the bedrock of Wipro.I am also pleased to announce that Abidali Neemuchwala will be the Managing Director of Wipro Limited from July 31, 2019, in addition to being the Chief Executive Officer. I will continue to serve on the Board of Wipro Limited as Non-Executive Director and Founder Chairman while dedicating most of my time and energy to the philanthropic efforts of the Foundation.Further, after an association of nearly two decades with Wipro, Mr. Narayanan Vaghul and Dr. Ashok Ganguly will be retiring from the Wipro Board as of 31st July 2019. Wipro has benefitted immensely from their wisdom and guidance I thank them both from the depths of my heart. We also welcome Mrs. Arundhati Bhattacharya to the Wipro Board as a Non-Executive Independent Director, I am confident that her deep repository of knowledge spanning across the financial services sector combined with her understanding of technology will further strengthen the Board.Leading Wipro from 1966 until now has been the greatest privilege of my life; it has been an extraordinary journey. I want to thank the generations of Wiproites and their families for their contribution towards building our company to what it is today. I am grateful to our clients, partners, and other stakeholders who have reposed trust and confidence in us. Close Wipro will continually transform to scale new heights as the world changes while remaining firmly committed to its values.

September 19, 2012 — Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), a minimally invasive treatment for patients with aortic stenosis who are deemed too high-risk for traditional valve replacement surgery, is on the rise. TAVR relies heavily on echocardiography to provide the most accurate view of heart valves, from diagnosis to post-procedure. In response to criticism by physicians about the restrictiveness of conditions put forth by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for reimbursement for TAVR, the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) has emphasized the importance of heart team quality and experience in ensuring positive patient outcomes. “ASE supports the emphasis on quality which is embodied in CMS’ decision on TAVR,” noted ASE Advocacy Committee Chair David Wiener, M.D. “The TAVR team approach is in line with the latest guidelines for surgical and percutaneous interventions promulgated by our sister cardiovascular societies, and the concept that specific numbers of procedures must be performed to achieve and maintain competence is one that permeates the medical literature as well as ASE’s own guidelines.”The “EAE/ASE Recommendations for the Use of Echocardiography in New Transcatheter Interventions for Valvular Heart Disease,” a collaborative effort between the ASE and the European Association of Echocardiography (EAE), were published in the September 2011 issue of the Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography (JASE).As TAVR technology and the skills of those who perform it continue to grow, the requirement that a heart team work in concert to prepare for, perform and monitor the procedure will ensure the best possible outcomes, and TAVR will be an appropriate option for an increasing number of patients.ASE’s position will be shared with members when a new biannual member publication, Echo, arrives in member mailboxes in mid-September. The new member news source targets members’ need for practical information on practice management, as well as providing a vehicle for news about member activities, association projects and developments in the field of cardiovascular ultrasound.  “Our goal with Echo is to bring relevant information to our members so that they can focus on their patients,” explained ASE President Patricia Pellikka, M.D. “Echocardiography is a valuable and evolving technology, and ASE is constantly seeking new ways to guide our members and this dynamic modality forward.”For more information: www.asecho.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 05, 2019 Digital Health Devices Used at Point of Care May Improve Diagnostic Certainty A West Virginia-based rural medical outreach event showcased the use of point-of-care technology in an ambulatory… read more 360 Photos | Ultrasound Imaging | July 11, 2019 360 Degree View of a Smartphone Performing a Cardiac Ultrasound Exam This 360 degree photo shows a basic, point-of-care cardiac echocardiogram being performed using a smartphone turned i read more News | September 19, 2012 ASE Supports CMS Reimbursement Requirements for Cardiac Teams Performing TAVR News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 07, 2019 Contrast Use in First Transthoracic Echocardiogram for Heart Failure Reduces Repeat Testing Heart failure is the fourth most common cause for all admission to U.S. hospitals, and it is the most common reason for… read more last_img read more

Google TVCs write an open letter to Googles CEO demands for equal

first_imgGoogle contractors ( often referred to as Google’s “shadow workforce”) wrote an open letter on Medium to Sundar Pichai, CEO, Google, yesterday, demanding him to address their demands of better conditions and equal benefits for contractors, that make up more than half of the company’s total staff. Contractors ( vendors, temps, TVCs) are workers who are employed by different outside agencies within Google for all types of different jobs (coders, managers, marketers, janitors, waiters, etc). It was just last month when 20,000 Google employees along with TVCs, temps, vendors, and contractors walked out to protest against Google’s handling of sexual harassment and discrimination within the workplace. As a part of the walkout, Google employees had made five demands urging Google to bring about structural changes within the workplace. One of the demands laid out by Google employees was “commitment to ending pay and opportunity inequity” for all levels of the organization, including the contract workers and the sub-contract workers. However, Google didn’t address any of the issues surrounding the TVCs so far. “As TVCs who took equal part in the walkout, your silence has been deafening. Google routinely denies TVCs access to information that is relevant to our jobs and our lives,” reads the letter. An example mentioned in the letter is of the tragic shooting at YouTube headquarters in April, this year, where Google sent security related updates to its employees in real time, “leaving TVCs defenseless in the line of fire”. Moreover, TVCs were not even invited to the post-shooting town hall meeting the following day. Similarly, TVCs were also excluded from the town hall meeting that was conducted six days post walkout. “The exclusion of TVCs from important communications and fair treatment is part of a system of institutional racism, sexism, and discrimination. TVCs are disproportionately people from marginalized groups who are treated as less deserving of compensation, opportunities, workplace protections, and respect”, reads the letter. The letter also points out the fact that contractors wear different colored badges from full-time employees, get low wages despite doing the same work as full-time employees, and are offered minimal benefits as compared to full-time employees. “Google has the power — and the money — to ensure that we are treated equitably, with respect and dignity. However, it is clear that we will continue to be mistreated and ignored if we stay silent. We need transparency, accountability, and structural change to ensure equity for all Google workers, ”reads the letter. Contractors have now reiterated the demands of the walkout: End to pay and opportunity inequity for TVCs. This demand includes better pay and same benefits for contractors as full-time employees such as high-quality healthcare, paid vacations, paid sick days, holiday pay, family leave, and bonuses.  There should also be a consistent and transparent conversion process to full-time employment, along with adopting single badge color for all workers. Access to company-wide information on the same terms as full-time employees. This includes access to town hall discussions, communications about safety, discrimination, sexual misconduct, access to internal forums like Google Groups, career growth, classes, and counseling opportunities, similar to the ones offered to full-time employees. Public response to the letter has been largely positive, with people supporting contractors for speaking out: Google hasn’t responded yet regarding the demands and for now, we can only wait and see if and when these demands get addressed by Google.
