Harvard to guarantee workers’ pay, benefits amid coronavirus disruptions

first_imgHarvard also announced today that it is providing financial stabilization for the six independent nonprofit child-care centers on the University’s campuses. The support package will enable the centers to ensure employment, pay, and benefits for about 180 employees through June 30, even if closures related to COVID-19 remain in effect. Under normal conditions, these centers serve 380 families in the Boston, Cambridge, and Harvard communities.The new updates to Harvard’s human resources policies build on previous enhancements that continued pay for 30 days for employees who no longer had work available after the majority of the University’s student population left campus and allowed workers to use up to 14 days of unearned sick leave in advance.“As the situation regarding COVID-19 has evolved, the human resources community at Harvard has continued its commitment to updating our policies to best support the University’s workers,” said Vice President for Human Resources Marilyn Hausammann. “These enhancements to the pay continuation policy and to the extension of coverage to employees of our key vendors illustrate how important it is to adapt during these challenging times, and more importantly, they show the deep appreciation the University has for its staff members and the contributions they make to Harvard every day.” Managing the coronavirus exodus from campus Jeffrey Frankel cites domino effect of problems in China, huge U.S. deficit, likely decline in jobs and spending Amid the upheavals to campus life brought by the coronavirus pandemic, Harvard announced today it would guarantee pay and benefits through May 28 to its employees and contract workers who have experienced job disruptions since March 10, when the University announced the move to virtual classes.“For our workforce, who each day are so critical to the success of this institution, this unprecedented public health emergency has created innumerable challenges,” wrote Executive Vice President Katie Lapp in an email to University leaders announcing the changes to human resources policies. “The steps I share today are aimed at providing greater certainty for them in these uncertain times with regards to their pay and benefits, and greater stability for them and their families.”The extension of regular pay and benefits to Harvard employees, including administrative, professional, support staff, and service and trade workers, covers those who are well and available to work, but whose duties cannot be performed remotely, including dining and custodial services. Harvard will also expand eligibility for this guarantee to part-time contingent employees who work less than half time.“This is a positive announcement for HUCTW members that we’re very pleased to see,” said Carrie Barbash, president of the Harvard Union of Clerical and Technical Workers. “We’ve been in serious ongoing conversations with University administrators about how the virus affects our members, and they have been responsive and positive. At such an incredibly challenging and unprecedented time for so many people in the U.S. and in our community, it’s heartening to see this good citizenship from the University — Harvard taking care of its committed and hard-working staff, both union and nonunion.”Contract employees from Harvard’s 14 major service suppliers working in security, dining, and custodial roles will also be eligible for extended pay and benefits. Harvard is working directly with these supplier companies to ensure continued support for those who are well and available for work, but displaced from their contract assignments by the coronavirus pandemic and therefore unable to obtain new assignments. “We applaud Harvard for doing the right thing and implementing a leave policy that will allow both contracted and directly employed workers to make ends meet during this unprecedented crisis.” — Roxana Rivera, 32BJ Service Employees International Union “UNITE HERE Local 26 commends Harvard for making the right decision for its dining hall workers and the public at large,” said the union’s president, Carlos Aramayo. “Nothing can reopen until we tackle this public health crisis head-on. Compensating workers, whether they are direct employees or subcontracted employees, who are staying at home to help solve this crisis helps ensure no one has to face unnecessary financial burdens during this already difficult time.”“We applaud Harvard for doing the right thing and implementing a leave policy that will allow both contracted and directly employed workers to make ends meet during this unprecedented crisis,” added Roxana Rivera, vice president of 32BJ Service Employees International Union. “Having access to pay and health care benefits will give the 1,000 cleaners and security officers 32BJ represents at Harvard peace of mind knowing they can stay safe and healthy while continuing to feed their families. These workers have been at the frontlines of fighting this virus, keeping the campus clean and safe for the entire Harvard community even as students go back home, and we’re glad that Harvard is acknowledging their important service.” Coronavirus likely to infect the global economy Harvard’s Lipsitch urges public to ramp up social distancing, increase coronavirus tests ‘Worry about 4 weeks from now,’ epidemiologist warns Why odds of a coronavirus recession have risen Related Campus Services VP Meredith Weenick on Harvard’s work to prevent the spread of disease and help students move out on a tight timeline Business School’s Shih expects disruptions for nations trading with China and for manufacturers dependent on it for components for electronics, consumer products, and pharmaceuticals The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news.last_img read more

US doctors group calls for transparency in COVID-19 vaccine development

first_imgCountries around the world are racing to develop a vaccine for the viral disease which has claimed more than 819,900 lives and infected nearly 23.9 million people globally, according to a Reuters tally.In April, the US government initiated Operation Warp Speed and has so far invested billions to secure doses of potential vaccines from across the world.Warp Speed aims to expedite development of a vaccine and therapies to treat the novel coronavirus, and the emphasis on speed has provoked public anxiety about the safety and effectiveness of these vaccines.Earlier this month, Russia became the first country to grant regulatory approval to a COVID-19 vaccine after less than two months of human testing. However, Western experts have warned against its use until all internationally approved testing and regulatory steps have been taken.In August, top US infectious disease official Anthony Fauci said the FDA was not cutting corners on safety in its review of vaccine candidates for COVID-19. Topics : The rapid pace of COVID-19 vaccine development and scant information about the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) vaccine review process are leading to concerns, the American Medical Association (AMA) said on Wednesday.In a letter, the AMA urged the FDA to ensure transparency in the vaccine development process and keep physicians informed of the agency’s plan for review of potential vaccine candidates. Vaccine hesitancy among the public appears to be reaching unprecedented levels due to a number of factors including significant spread of misinformation through channels such as social media, according to the AMA.last_img read more

Marcos Rojo says his relationship with Van Gaal is ‘normal’

first_imgManchester United defender Marcos Rojo has described his relationship with boss Louis van Gaal as “normal”. Press Association The 25-year-old did not play in any of United’s first seven games this term and only two of the opening 13. But he has started all six since then, earning praise – including from Van Gaal – for his efforts at left-back. And asked if he had a good relationship with Van Gaal, Rojo was quoted on Tuesday as telling ESPN: “It is normal, as with any other coach. “I don’t ask him why he includes me in a game when I play, so I don’t have any right in asking him why I don’t play when he decides that I don’t have to do it. It’s as simple as that. “Van Gaal does the same as any coach in the world. He decides who plays according to what he sees during the week, he chooses the players that he sees in the best condition and we have to accept all the decisions that the coach takes”. Rojo added of Dutchman Van Gaal, who has a reputation for an uncompromising style of management: “He is a very professional coach, he wants to get out the very best from each one – that doesn’t mean that he is rough. “He wants his work to have success and we have to understand what he expects from each one of us.” center_img Relations between the pair appeared strained not long ago, with Van Gaal reportedly angry at Rojo over the summer that passport issues had prevented him from joining up with the United’s pre-season tour. It had looked as if the Argentina international might leave the club only a year after his arrival from Sporting Lisbon and, after a move did not materialise, there were then further problems for Rojo when Van Gaal in September claimed he had failed to tell him about a hamstring injury he suffered. last_img read more

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has requested the Union government to share its position formally with regards to Indo-Pak bilateral cricket tournament, which has been put on hold since 2012 due to the political tension between the two countries.”The BCCI would be grateful if you could formally convey the policy/position of the Government of India on the need or requirement of prior clearance from the Government of India for the Indian cricket team to play the Pakistan cricket in in-bound or out-bound tours,” BCCI wrote to the ministry.The BCCI has repeatedly cleared its take that it won’t be able to participate in any bilateral contests unless the government gives clearance.The BCCI will soon head to ICC Disputes Resolution Forum where they will counter PCB’s compensation claim of worth USD 70 million for not honouring the MoU, signed in 2014.

It is our duty to seek permission from the government with regards to bilateral series. Our job is to ask and it’s up to the government. We understand that bilateral series in prevailing circumstances is very difficult. But if we get a reply from the government in ‘black and white’, it will help us,” a senior BCCI official told a leading press agency when asked about the latest email to the ministry. Earlier, PCB had appealed to ICC’s Dispute Resolution Committee, accusing the BCCI of going against the Future Tours & Programme (FTP) commitment, according to which they were required to play at least two away series against Pakistan on a neutral venue.The ICC confirmed that Hon Michael Beloff QC will head the Dispute Panel in a release. The governing body for cricket also made it clear that decision of the Dispute Panel shall be non-appealable. The hearing is scheduled for October 1-3 in Dubai at the ICC headquarters. last_img read more

Black Caps fall agonisingly short as Rohit and Kohli inspire series win

first_img(REUTERS) – India registered a 2-1 series victory against New Zealand after Jasprit Bumrah’s tidy final over secured the hosts’ six-run win in the third and final one-day international on Sunday.New Zealand needed 15 runs off the final over to chase down a 338-run victory target but a nerveless Bumrah conceded only seven while picking up his third wicket of the match to help India prevail in the runfest.Earlier, centurions Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma featured in a mammoth 230-run stand to help the hosts post 337-6 after New Zealand, wary of the dew factor later in the evening, elected to field at Kanpur’s Green Park Stadium.New Zealand lost opener Martin Guptill early in their reply but Colin Munro smashed three sixes in his blistering 75 and Kane Williamson made a fluent 64 to help them overcome the early loss.Wristspinner Yuzvendra Chahal ended the 109-run partnership, dismissing both the batsmen but Tom Latham refused to throw in the towel.Latham and Ross Taylor had engineered New Zealand’s successful chase in the series opener in Mumbai and they looked determined to reprised the role.Bumrah (3-47) poured cold water on their plans, however, by first dismissing Taylor for 39 and then running out Latham, who made 65, in the 48th over of the New Zealand innings.Put into bat, India lost Shikhar Dhawan (14) early but New Zealand had to toil in the subsequent 35 overs as Kohli and Sharma became the first ODI pair to star in four double-century partnerships.Sharma batted with characteristic elegance to score 147 off 138 balls. His 15th one-day century was studded with 18 boundaries and a couple of sixes before he fell in the 42nd over.Kohli was silky smooth at the other end as the India captain became the fastest batsman to complete 9,000 ODI runs, achieving the feat in 194 innings.The right-hander made 113 off 106 balls, with nine boundaries and a six in his 32nd one-day century.The teams will next square off in a three-match Twenty20 series beginning in New Delhi on Wednesday.INDIA InningsRo.

Joseph’s record-breaking 6 for 12 routs Sunrisers Hyderabad

first_imgALZARRI JOSEPH made history on a sensational Indian Premier League (IPL) debut, leading Mumbai Indians to a convincing 40-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad.The West Indies paceman claimed the best bowling figures in IPL history as he picked up 6-12 from his 3.4 overs, surpassing Sohail Tanvir’s haul of 6-14 back in 2008.The 22-year-old’s efforts were also the eighth-best in a Twenty20 game.Kieron Pollard had earlier lifted Mumbai from 65-5 with an unbeaten 46 off just 26 balls, helping set the Sunrisers a target of 137.Jonny Bairstow (16) and David Warner (15) got Hyderabad off to a solid start, but the hosts lost their final five wickets for just eight runs in an astonishing collapse.Joseph sparked the incredible finale by removing Deepak Hooda (20) and he ended it with 14 balls remaining by drawing an outside edge from Siddarth Kaul (0) that was snaffled by wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.JOSEPH’S DREAM DEBUTThere cannot be many better ways to begin your first IPL appearance than by removing one of the competition’s leading run-scorers with your first delivery. That is precisely what Joseph did.Warner – who sits fourth in the list of all-time IPL runs – attempted to play a huge shot to the boundary at the start of the fifth over but only edged Joseph back onto his stumps.After Windies quick removed Hooda and Rashid Khan off successive deliveries in the 16th over, Hyderabad wilted and Mumbai surged to an impressive victory. POLLARD PUNISHES SUNRISERSMumbai were sitting uncomfortably at 97-7 at the end of the 18th over, with Pollard making just nine off the first 13 balls he faced.However, the 31-year-old plundered a trio of powerful maximums – one from a free hit – off the next set of six from Kaul.The final over saw Pollard add another six and a pair of fours, with some sloppy fielding from Mohammad Nabi and Hooda proving key as the game turned on its head.last_img read more
