Another standoff brewing?

first_imgDear Editor,Is there another standoff between management and workers brewing similar to the one which occurred some months ago? (‘Goldfield refuses to meet with “unrecognised” unions’ – Guyana Times, May 28, 2019).The authorities responsible for labour matters should take all necessary steps to ensure this does not happen,  especially in view of the ill-conceived notion that workers reached out to the unrecognised union rather that the Labour Department as an indication of ‘a lack of faith in the Government taking action’.Sincerely,ShamshunMohamedlast_img read more

Martz out due to heart infection

first_img The antibiotics that Martz began taking on Friday didn’t seem to help, Shaw said, but he didn’t know if any additional procedures would be necessary. Severe cases of endocarditis can require open-heart surgery. Assistant head coach Joe Vitt will take over as coach. Martz told his players during a brief but emotional team meeting that he would step aside, Vitt said. Deuce likely out for year Deuce McAllister likely will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee Sunday at Green Bay. Saints coach Jim Haslett said that the running back got a second opinion in San Antonio. He’ll get a third opinion from Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., later this week. “If that’s the case, a torn ligament, he’s out for the year,” Haslett said. “I feel bad first of all for Deuce. He’s worked hard to get to this point. He’s a great football player.” Haslett said McAllister’s playing time will be split between Aaron Stecker and Antowain Smith. Ricky ‘s back The Miami Dolphins made a substantial offensive upgrade, adding a certified yoga instructor and student of holistic medicine notorious for his shyness and mercurial behavior. Yes, Ricky Williams is back. Returning from a four-week suspension that followed a one-year retirement, Williams took part in the team’s brief walkthrough session. He’ll rejoin practice Wednesday and likely play Sunday at Tampa Bay his first game since December 2003. Update on Burleson Minnesota Vikings WR Nate Burleson missed the previous two games with a sprained knee, but coach Mike Tice said it is a shoulder injury holding back the team’s No. 1 receiver now. “The shoulder’s bugging him more than the knee,” Tice said. “If we can get the shoulder to make strides this week, he should be questionable.” WR set for surgery Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Darrell Jackson is scheduled to have surgery on his right knee Wednesday to remove loose cartilage from an old injury. Jackson has a bone bruise in the knee, but while getting a second opinion in Florida late last week, doctors noticed the loose cartilage from an injury suffered a few years ago, coach Mike Holmgren said. Davenport on IR Running back Najeh Davenport underwent season-ending surgery to repair his broken right ankle and the Green Bay Packers placed him on injured reserve. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Shaw said he wasn’t told the specific name of the illness, but was led to believe that Martz’s heart valve had weakened since last week. “I think he was concerned he was letting down a lot of people, but also had concern about the gravity of the situation,” Shaw said. Mike Martz is out indefinitely as coach of the St. Louis Rams with a bacterial infection of the heart. Martz was told by a specialist Monday that his condition, which kept him out of two practices last week, had worsened. The 54-year-old has been ill for more than a month and was tested for endocarditis, a bacterial infection of the lining of the heart or a heart valve. After the Rams’ 37-31 loss Sunday to the Seattle Seahawks, Martz said he shouldn’t have been on the sideline. St. Louis dropped to 2-3. last_img read more
