Dear Editor,The December 4 article in another section of the media concerning the protest actions by sugar workers on December 3 referred to a conversation with an official of the sugar company. The article posits that GuySuCo’s Chief Industrial Relations Manager, Mr Deodat Sukhu, the leader of the Corporation’s negotiation team, had indicated to GAWU that the Corporation hadn’t “…the revenue or cash flow to pay workers…” to offset a pay rise. The newspaper indicated that Mr Sukhu said this “…was made known to union representatives during meetings in October and November”.We find the comments of the GuySuCo official to be a startling revelation. At no time has the Corporation officially indicated to us that it would not offer any pay rise this year. In fact, our discussions regarding pay rise have not even commenced as yet much less for us to get the Corporation’s response. At our last engagement on November 20 with the GuySuCo, the company’s CEO, Dr Harold Davis Jr indicated to our Union that the Corporation recognised that workers deserved an increase. He shared with the GAWU that the company was engaging the Government and NICIL-SPU on the issue among other matters. He had expected then that in two weeks’ time, he would have a clear idea on the way forward. Mr Sukhu, during that engagement, was closer to Dr Davis than we were and would have heard, like us, what was communicated.Clearly, Dr Davis’ sentiments are in stark contrast with that of Mr Sukhu. Undoubtedly, if the GuySuCo was unclear of where it stood on the matter, it would be highly irregular to make any pronouncement. We did find it intriguing too that Mr Sukhu disclosed that even “[t]he board has recognised that workers need an increase…” Certainly, as we pointed out, that question of an increase to sugar workers is not an ‘if’ but a ‘must’.Yours faithfully,Seepaul NarineGeneral SecretaryGAWU
Nimba District1 Candidate Othello Deshield – Advertisement – Police authorities assigned with the National Elections Commission (NEC) have arrested a representative candidate of Nimba County Electoral District #1 for allegedly posing as an agent looking to purchase voter registration cards from voters in a queue.Othello Deshield, a candidate on the ticket of the Liberia Restoration Party (LRP) of presidential candidate MacDella Cooper, was arrested at the Zokeseh polling center in Peace Community, Ganta while reportedly luring his voters with at least US$30 per card.Police officers investigating Mr. Deshield at the Ganta Police Charge of Quarters told the Daily Observer that “the suspect was caught red-handed,” adding that the pieces of evidence gathered from eyewitnesses so far were good enough to prosecute him.Candidate Deshield’s information sheet as given by NECAccording to the officers (who spoke on condition of anonymity), because of the severity of his alleged act, Mr. Deshield “will face the full weight of the law.” At the time the officers were providing the information, the representative hopeful (Deshield) was writing a statement reportedly committing himself to the alleged crime. The officers revealed that several voter registration cards were found on the suspect.Just a week to yesterday’s polls, Deshield openly pledged his support to another independent candidate vying for the same seat. He told his supporters that he once lived at the home of rival independent candidate Samuel N. Brown’s mother, which compelled him to bow out of the race. But despite dropping out of the race, Deshield, who was a money changer before trying his hand in politics, was still on the ballot.Word of Deshield’s arrest spread like wildfire as many voters and media personnel, after casting their ballots at the polls, gathered at the police detachment to catch a glimpse of him.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

All-Ireland SFC Semi-Final: Donegal v DublinThe club wish Ryan Bradley and the senior Donegal football squad all the best for what is anticipated to be a tough contest in Croke Park on Sunday. With over 1,000 tiickets bought through the club there will be plenty of Buncrana support in Croker for this battle.The club is facilitating the attendance of large numbers of underage club members at the game at the subsidised price of €15 including bus arrangements, supervision and refreshments. This represents great value for the youngsters and epitomises what the club and the GAA are about. Senior FootballOur senior footballers had a very good win over Naomh Comcille on Sunday last. The final score was 0-8 to 0-9. In a very tough encounter there was never more than two points separating the sides. Buncrana fielded without Ryan Bradley as he prepares for the All Ireland semi final and Newtown without Tommy McKinley. Odhran Doherty returned to the starting lineout as did Andy McLaughlin although the latter had to retire early feeling the effects of a knee injury. His replacement Christy McDermott made and immediate impact and kicked two fine scores and used whatever posession he had very intelligently. Barry O’Hagan as always took some watching and John Doherty had an excellent game on the All Ireland winner and can be very happy with his hours work. Noel O’Donnell was at his commanding best in goals and the ever improving Calvin Jones had a stormer in the corner and is a shoe in for next years county minor squad. He should be joined by Simon Cuffe who should his power and speed from the half back line. Oisin Doherty continued his fine form up front and it was great to see the lads taking the victory. Elsewhere Philip Scott was excellent when introduced and with championship around the corner and lads returning from injury competition for places is really hotting up.The reserve side was unlucky to draw their game with Newtown equalising with the last kick of the game. Stephen Dean McFadden made a welcome return after a long injury layoff and James Wallace was in fine form upfront. It was great to see a few dual players in taking the field and hopefully these lads will make training and contest for places as the business end of the season nears. Kevin O’Loughlin had a fine game in midfield with John Cassidy the pick of the backs. Mark O’Connell is improving with every outing and his consistent showing at training is really starting to pay off. Both teams have the weekend off ans they head to Dublin to support Ryan and Donegal.ALL-Ireland Hurling FinalAny club members who are interested in tickets for the above, should submit their names to Gerard Callaghan by 7pm tonight, Monday 22nd August.
