Amazon HQ2 In Virginia: Headquarters To Create 25,000 Jobs As Board Approves Funding – Brinkwire

A small but vocal group of Virginians brandishing anti-Amazon slogans failed to convince the Arlington County Board from voting unanimously in favor of Amazon receiving a financial package that will ensure the company establishes its second headquarters, or HQ2, within the city. Protesters repeatedly shouted “shame” as the county board voted 5-0 to approve a $23 million incentives package for Amazon to build HQ2 in northern Virginia. Amazon chose National Landing, a site jointly owned by Arlington County and the city of Alexandria, just outside Washington D.C. The approved financial package is worth some $51 million in total. The amount includes a controversial direct financial incentive (or cash grant) of $23 million to Amazon over 15 years. This amount will be collected from taxes on Arlington hotel rooms. It also depends on Amazon occupying six million square feet of office space over the first 16 years. Arlington also offered to invest more than $28 million of future property tax revenue in onsite infrastructure and open space at the headquarters site over the next 10 years. This $51 million, however, is only a fraction of the $481 million promised by the county to Amazon. Only 5 percent of the incentives are direct. In addition, Amazon has also been offered a $750 million package by the state of Virginia. The Virginia General Assembly approved this far larger package with little opposition. The $23 million grant and the $28 million in strategic public infrastructure investments were “instrumental in Amazon choosing Arlington for its headquarters,” said a filing on the county board’s website. In November 2018, Amazon picked National Landing and New York City for its HQ2 or second headquarters. New York two weeks ago rejected Amazon’s offer despite being the frontrunner. Opposition from local leaders angered by the massive incentives promised by state and city politicians to Amazon scuttled the deal. Holly Sullivan, Amazon’s worldwide head of economic development, said the company will invest some $2.5 billion and create more than 25,000 jobs in Virginia. These jobs will have an average annual wage of over $150,000. Sullivan said Amazon will generate more than $3.2 billion in tax revenue for the state “Regarding incentives, Amazon is only eligible for the financial incentive after we make our investments and occupy office space in the community,” she said. Many speakers at the Virginia country board meeting who oppose the Amazon headquarters slammed the direct incentives. They also said news of Amazon’s arrival is already boosting housing costs, and is displacing low-income families, among other disadvantages. They also cited the lack of investment guarantees in affordable housing funds. “Speculators are already driving up home prices, landlords are raising rents and general contractors are raising their quotes for home improvement projects,” said one resident. The AFL-CIO and other unions object to Amazon not signing a labor agreement with wage and benefit safeguards for workers hired to construct the new buildings. Amazon is infamous for being anti-union.

Rutgers faculty vote to let union leaders call a strike if needed

Rutgers faculty vote to let union leaders call a strike if needed | PSLabor:  Your Union Free Advantage | Scoop.it
Rutgers union members vote to authorize leaders to call for a strike North Jersey Record Published 1:02 PM EDT Mar 19, 2019 A majority of Rutgers University faculty union members voted to authorize its leaders to use a strike as a bargaining tool in contract negotiations, union members said Tuesday. Union leaders say the university’s pay raise offers under President Robert Barchi have been “insulting," which prompted them to ask members two weeks ago to vote on authorizing a strike. “Eighty-eight percent of the Rutgers AAUP-AFT faculty and graduate employee union voted to authorize leadership to call what would be the first ever faculty strike in Rutgers’ 253-year history,” the Rutgers union tweeted on Tuesday. Rutgers union members picketed before a Board of Governors meeting on Dec. 6, 2018. The members have been working without a contract since June 30 and demand fair contract negotiations. Catherine Carrera/NorthJersey.com This was the first time in at least 15 years that the faculty union took such a vote but it has never actually carried out a strike, union leaders have said. The union comprises nearly 5,000 full-time faculty and teaching assistants across the university's three campuses, all of whom have been without a contract since July 1. Negotiations began a year ago, officials have said. Good news: NJ teen perseveres through homelessness to get accepted to 17 colleges Campus outbreak: Rutgers students urged to get additional meningitis vaccination after outbreak on campus A big draw: Rutgers wrestling ranks No. 5 in NCAA wrestling attendance About 24 other labor unions’ contracts at the university also expired last year. The university has agreed to new four-year contracts with five of the unions, which includes raises of 3 percent for each of the next three years and 2.5 percent in the fourth year. Rutgers has also reached a tentative agreement with two staff unions as of earlier this month, a Rutgers spokeswoman previously said. Published 1:02 PM EDT Mar 19, 2019
