LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS London Wasps will welcome Richard Birkett back from injury at The Stoop on Saturday as they go head to head with local rivals Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership.Birkett is just one of the changes made to the side that secured a 33-16 win over Newcastle Falcons at Adams Park last weekend. The Wasps stalwart, with 223 appearances to his name, returns to play following surgery to his elbow having last featured in black and gold back in October against Glasgow in the Heineken Cup.As well as the addition of Birkett, who replaces Will Matthews in the back row, further changes are made in the pack as Simon Shaw and Joe Worsley are rested. Shaw is replaced by Marty Veale whilst Serge Betsen comes in for Worsley.The front row remains unchanged but with injuries sustained to Rob Webber and Joe Ward in recent weeks, Wasps name new signing Michael Mayhew on the bench. Hooker Mayhew joins the club on a short-term contract from North Harbour, where he has worked under former Wasp Craig Dowd.Amongst the backs Mark Van Gisbergen starts at full back, having been named on the bench last weekend. Richard Haughton moves to the wing to partner Tom Varndell, with David Lemi named amongst the replacements. Ben Jacobs again captains the side and partners Steve Kefu in midfield as Riki Flutey moves to fly half.With Flutey at 10, Dave Walder is named on the bench which also bolstered by the return of Joe Simpson after recovery from a hamstring strain. Continuing to blood their young aspiring talents, this weekend’s replacements also feature Academy pairing of Sam Jones and Joe Launchbury. 19 year old back row Launchbury, who joined the club from Worthing training under former Wasp Will Green, gains his first senior matchday 23 inclusion having impressed in the A League this season. Looking ahead to the game, Director of Rugby Tony Hanks said, “We are pleased to welcome Richard Birkett back to play, he is a huge part of the club and is a proven performer so he certainly bolsters the side going into this game which is huge for both teams.“Notable changes see Riki Flutey at fly half for this game – a position that he is equally comfortable in. Steve Kefu and Ben Jacobs have formed a strong partnership in midfield and this move allows Riki to continue to build on his game time following a return from injury. Dave Walder has played a lot rugby already this season so these changes allow us to manage our squad but also name the right team for this fixture.“We are pleased to welcome Michael Mayhew to the club. Working under Craig Dowd at North Harbour he is already familiar with Wasps and comes highly recommended, providing us with vital cover following injuries to Rob Webber and Joe Ward. We are also pleased to see Joe Launchbury step up to the senior stage. Joe has impressed since joining from Worthing and fully deserves his place, which would have come sooner had injury not hampered the start of his season. “Wasps v Quins fixtures are always hugely competitive and we expect Saturday’s game to be no different. Both teams are pushing for vital points and on the back of recent form it should be a good showdown between the two London sides.”London Wasps team to face Harlequins on Saturday 8th January, KO 2.45pm:15 Mark Van Gisbergen14 Richard Haughton13 Ben Jacobs (C)12 Steve Kefu11 Tom Varndell10 Riki Flutey9 Nic Berry1 Tim Payne2 Tom Lindsay3 Zak Taulafo4 Marty Veale5 James Cannon6 Richard Birkett7 Serge Betsen8 Andy Powell16 Michael Mayhew17 Charlie Beech18 Ben Broster19 Joe Launchbury20 Sam Jones21 Joe Simpson22 Dave Walder23 David Lemi

Fifteen striking workers arrested at Verizon shareholders’ meeting, Albuquerque, N.M. ‘Don’t cross that picket line,’ say workers in Oakland, Calif. People’s Power Assembly in New York atNational Day of Strike Action, May 5. Philadelphia community support for strikers.May 9 — Workers on strike against communications giant Verizon are staying strong. On May 5, a militant National Day of Strike Action was held, with the multinational working class across the U.S. answering the unions’ call with a groundswell of support and solidarity.The 36,000 members of the Communication Workers (CWA) and International Electrical Workers (IBEW) unions are entering the strike’s fourth week in nine Eastern and Atlantic Coast states. The workers perform demanding “wire-line operations” — installation, repairs and technical support for landlines, high-speed Internet and television services. Their nonstop call center work, every second monitored by Verizon, is rated the third most stressful job in the country. (tinyurl.com/zwtu5nk)Workers hoisted signs reading “Verizon is Veri-Greedy,” blasting the corporation’s attempts to exploit them. CWA District 2-13 analyzed the company’s proposed contract in detail. A 7.5 percent pay raise would be eaten up by rising out-of-pocket health care costs. Pensions, paid leave and disability benefits would be reduced. Call centers would be closed, jobs outsourced overseas and job security gutted by “flexibility” language allowing management to manipulate workers’ hours and job assignments. (district2-13.cwa-union.org)Verizon demands that workers accept “forced relocation” assignments, losing their jobs unless they take any assignment within 80 miles of their current job. This would have workers commuting to their jobs two to four hours a day, with additional transportation costs, as well as having to leave home before dawn and getting home too late to do more than say “good night” to their loved ones.On May 1, International Workers’ Day, Verizon cut off all health benefits to strikers. CWA issued a statement that “no striking member or family member will go without medically necessary health care during the strike” and pledged to pay the costs. CWA noted Verizon made a $4 billion profit off the workers’ labor in the first quarter of 2016 alone and said the company’s “heartless move” proved the strike’s necessity. (tinyurl.com/zl9cmjo)Thousands of workers rallied May 5 at over 400 protests supporting the strikers, who are holding the line for workers’ rights. A wide spectrum of people participated, including those in states where Verizon workers aren’t striking, workers in other unions, workers not yet represented by unions and community activists fighting for justice on many issues. Verizon workers in DeWitt, N.Y., condemn company’s ‘Rat’ CEO. Cross-country solidarityIn Albuquerque, N.M., union leaders organized a militant protest outside a Verizon shareholders meeting. Four days after Verizon canceled all striking workers’ health insurance, the company’s shareholders voted not to limit “golden parachute” severance payouts for management, even if triple the executive’s base salary. In response, union members and community supporters dropped a 70-foot banner that read, “Verizon: Good Jobs, No Greed,” across the busy Rio Grande Boulevard and lay down on the banner, blocking traffic. Fifteen people were arrested as 250 supporters continued to protest outside the meeting.At a raucous May 2 unity rally in Dewitt, N.Y., a suburb of Syracuse, striking workers taunted a giant blow-up rat with a sign proclaiming Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam “the biggest rat of all.” McAdam had shown up in person at the call center picket line, attempting to intimidate the workers, which is a violation of National Labor Relations Board rules. Support at the rally included CWA and IBEW locals from Binghamton, Buffalo, Elmira, Syracuse and Utica, as well as members of the Teamsters, teachers, postal workers and office workers unions. United Auto Workers Local 624 retirees showed up — local legends because, even as the company closed their plant around them, they steadfastly refused a “last, best and final” offer because it lowered their wages to $15 an hour. Striking workers at the rally answered the insulting Verizon “last, best” offer they’d just received by flinging the letters down as trash in front of the Verizon building.The New York City People’s Power Assembly observed the National Strike Day of Action in Union Square in front of the Verizon Wireless store, handing out leaflets, picketing and shouting pro-union chants for two hours. Some shoppers turned back from going inside. At one point the PPA picketers entered the store, making clear to the workers inside that the protest supported their right to unionize as well as “wire-line” workers. Verizon Wireless workers at some stores have elected union representation, but Verizon refuses to acknowledge them. Management called cops in to remove the activists, but they did not budge until they were ready to move on to their next action. (from Tony Murphy)In Philadelphia, members of CWA, Philadelphia Jobs with Justice and other activists came out on May 5 to picket the Verizon store near Jefferson Station on Market East, letting Verizon and passersby know its workers deserve fair pay and benefits. (from Joe Piette)Workers came together in Huntington, W.V., to picket Verizon Wireless in solidarity with CWA and IBEW workers. Members of the Service Employees, Steelworkers and Letter Carriers unions took to the street. The Appalachian Workers Alliance took part as well.Scabs receive Southern hospitality — NOTPicket lines, sponsored by CWA locals 2204 and 2201, are up in Roanoke, Lebanon and all over the rest of Virginia at Verizon call centers and tech sites. Despite injunctions and other challenges, both active and retired members are in good spirits, keeping the pickets strong. When it was learned scabs were staying at a Holiday Inn in Lebanon, Va., site of a call center and picket line, they didn’t stay there long, after receiving a hearty southwest Virginia welcome! Many strikers are women, many of them African American. Union jobs at Verizon are some of the only jobs left with decent wages, benefits and safety conditions. And being union, these workers have anchored communities across Virginia for decades. (from Bryan G. Pfeifer)Striking Verizon workers from CWA Local 2204 drove more than three hours on May 2 from southwest Virginia to a rally in Durham, N.C. Joining them in solidarity were members of Electrical Workers Local 150, the North Carolina Public Service Workers Union; “Raise Up for 15” low-wage workers; “Black Lives Matter for Deriante Miller” (Miller was a Black youth killed by an North Carolina state trooper); and campaigners against a new jail and for a People’s Budget respecting the labor of city workers. (from Dante Strobino)In Charlotte, N.C., a solidarity picket was organized at a Verizon store following a leaders’ training session of members of “Fight for 15” from throughout the South. Many attending are part of the on-going Southern Workers School, busy developing workers’ organizations in “right-to-work-for-less” states. Folks from the Charlotte CWA and IBEW locals helped organize and attended the rally. Picketers got out leaflets to cars and street traffic at rush hour. The rally was highly visible, with a great response from passersby, including some who joined the action for a short time. (from Ben Carroll)CWA Local 9415 and supporters from the community picketed a Lakeshore Avenue Verizon Wireless store in a crowded Oakland, Calif., shopping district. Passersby were very supportive, with a number of drivers honking in solidarity. Picketers held a banner and signs as they distributed flyers and talked to shoppers about the strike. Other Bay Area pickets were held in Berkeley and San Francisco. (from Terri Kay)Boston workers and activists are holding a monster “I Stand with Verizon Workers” lunch-hour march near downtown City Hall on May 11. Striking IBEW Local 2222 has been a rock of support for community and other union struggles, including the successful two-year fight against mega conglomerate Veolia/Transdev carried out by the Boston School Bus Drivers, Steelworkers Local 8751.Benji Pyles also contributed to this report.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Strikers in Huntingdon continue West Virginia tradition of militant unionism.
