” The thought was [in developing an ordinance] to get way ahead of it.”Currently, public employees in Alexandria have the right “to meet and confer” with the city to address any issues or concerns they have with their employment conditions.But as Cynthia Hudson, the special counsel hired by the city to help develop its draft ordinance, pointed out, this process is not legally binding and is very distinct from collective bargaining.”There is not the legal framework that is necessary to make ‘meet and confer’ happen because employers don’t have to meet and confer [with their employees],” Hudson said. “And even if they do, they don’t have to do anything about what they’re asked to do.”Collective bargaining agreements set forth the process by which negotiations between public sector employees and the government can take place and establish legally binding agreements.Alexandria is one of 19 Virginia localities that had previously established a collective bargaining agreement with its public employees.Establishing a new local ordinance for collective bargaining today, however, remains a very complicated process.Hudson likened collective bargaining to an “elephant” and said it was best to “eat it one small bite at a time.” According to Hudson, there are many facets to consider when establishing a collective bargaining process. These considerations include everything from how to identify bargaining units and unfair labor practices to the need to hire labor relations experts and establish protocols for managing the tension between the interests of supervisors and their employees.”Given what a big process and new process collective bargaining is to get your arms around we submit that it is prudent, and in the city’s probably best interest as a newcomer to collective bargaining, to start narrower with the scope of what you’re doing,” Hudson said.The draft ordinance recommends the city consider adopting four broad categories of “bargaining units” for police; fire and EMS; labor and trades; and general government.
I didn say that you scare people about PPIs. But seriously? Instead of saying “I had side effects and I worked through that issue with my doctor.” you saying “Pharmaceutical companies are bad. They make money selling pharmaceuticals. The work presented in this thesis is intended to contribute towards the understanding of the cerebral vascular behaviour in response to changes in neuronal activation. The blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) signal provides an indirect measure of neuronal activation, arising from a combination of metabolic and vascular (blood flow and blood volume) changes local to the activation. Therefore the BOLD signal is dependent on local vascular properties as well as on the neuronal activation, leading to a variability of the BOLD signal, based on the underlying vascular structure.
