The young Warriors recorded another positive result which meant they have matched their winning record of two wins from 10 matches in last year’s tournament and seem determined to make it to the top this year.Led by a Levi Sampson double (5th, 20th), they defeated Friendship All Stars 3-1. Jahson Maddison netted the other in the 10th minute, his second of the tournament. Friendship pulled one back through Jermaine Haynes’ 13th minute strike.The tournament’s leading goalscorer Rick Ramotar led Diamond United to their first win, playing in his third tournament at this level. He scored this year’s first goal – his team’s lone goal – in their draw against Samatta Point/Kaneville. Ramotar netted in the 7th and 20th minutes and that was all his side needed to take full points from Eagles FC of Stewartville.Defending champions Timehri Panthers, after going down to Vurlon Mills Academy in their opening match one week ago, rebounded in grand style when they defeated Fruta Conquerors 2-0, with goals either side of play thanks to goals off the boot of Jadon Tasher (14th) from the penalty spot and Shaquan Caleb in the 20th minute.Saturday’s other match ended 0-0 between Riddim Squad and Agricola Red Triangle.

Qantas staff vote to strike

first_imgTwo of Australia’s biggest airports could be affected, as the Australian Services Union Victoria asks up to 1000 of its Qantas members to back industrial action. Check-in and customer service staff will take part in the ballot which could see Qantas employees walk off the job at Melbourne and Sydney airport, The Australian reported.Australian Services Union Victorian private sector branch secretary Ingrid Stitt told the source that the union had applied for the ballot to Fair Work Australia this week because the airline refused to agree to the union’s five percent pay rise and increased job security.”Our members are pretty angry and frustrated that Qantas has even failed to give them a pay offer after eight or nine months of negotiations,” she said. In response to the union’s ballot Qantas has called for the union to return to the table for further talks.“Instead of threatening industrial action which will impact on passengers we would encourage the union to return to the negotiating table,” a Qantas spokesperson told e-Travel Blackboard.“Qantas has robust contingency plans in place to minimise any impact on passengers should the union process with any industrial action.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.Jlast_img read more
