The Atacama border dispute was a dispute between Chile and Bolivia in the 19th century that ended in the transfer to Chile of all of the Bolivian Coast and the southern tip of Bolivias ally Peru through the Treaty of Ancón with Peru and the Treaty of Peace and Friendship of 1904 between Chile and Bolivia after the War of the Pacific (1879-1883). Some consider the dispute is still ongoing as Bolivia still claims a sovereign access to the Pacific Ocean. The conflict takes its name from the Atacama Desert on which lies the disputed territory. From the Chilean annexation of the Bolivian coast in 1879 the Puna de Atacama dispute arose due to Bolivian transfers of land to both Argentina and Chile, this spin-off dispute was settled in 1899. The origins of the dispute came from the borders established in the Spanish empire that just defined the Atacama desert as the northern border of the General Captaincy of Chile. Bolivian and Chilean historians disagree on whether the territory of Charcas, ...

Members are being called to prepare for strike action on 4 December in an effort to force ColegauCymru (CC) to return to negotations as they have so far refused to negotiate over workoad until the separate dispute over pay is resolved.. Margaret Phelan, UCU Wales official, said It is hoped that the pay dispute can be resolved by the Welsh government funding pay parity with school teachers but we still need to maintain the pressure on CC to return to the negotiating table over workload. The timeline on industrial action over workload reflects the date for industrial action agreed with other unions over the joint pay dispute.. A special FE sector committee meeting on 17 November will decide on two more days of action to take place after 12 December if this remains necessary, to ensure that pay deductions happen in the January pay packet.. The ballot paper indicated that further action would be considered if the dispute hadnt been resolved by 21 December so decisions about further action would ...
The World Trade Organization has its own binding dispute settlement system. To ensure compliance with the outcome of the dispute settlement procedures, the claimant Member is authorized to retaliate in case the respondent Member fails to comply within a certain period of time. However, the rules and procedures regarding retaliation and determination of compliance are ambiguous and have caused an interpretational problem called the sequencing problem. To address the problem, the parties to any dispute generally conclude bilateral ad hoc procedural agreements.. However, by examining the procedural agreements concluded to date and by analyzing the potential problems of these agreements, this thesis concludes that due to the dependence on the will of the parties and the uncertain legal status of the agreements, the procedural agreements do not constitute a satisfactory method for addressing the sequencing problem. Alternatives such as amendments to the dispute settlement rules, an authoritative ...

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Trade Representative Susan C. Schwab announced today that USTR is modifying the list of EU products subject to additional duties in connection with World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute settlement rulings in the EU - Beef Hormones dispute. The modifications, which also help respond to a court-ordered review, make additions to and deletions from the list of the products subject to additional duties, change the EU member States whose products are subject to the duties, and for one product, increase the level of the additional duties.. "In 1998, the WTO found that the EUs ban on U.S. beef was not supported by science and was thus inconsistent with WTO rules, and in 1999 the United States imposed additional duties on a list of EU products in accordance with a WTO authorization. For over a decade, we have been trying to resolve this dispute with the EU, but our efforts have gone nowhere," explained USTR Schwab. "In these circumstances, I have decided it is time to modify the ...

Chapter 2 offers a conceptual framework of access to digital justice through which the case studies in later chapters are analyzed. It opens with an overview of the origins of access to justice, the various barriers to justice, and the different approaches for addressing such barriers. The introduction of digital technology is impacting access to justice in multiple, sometimes contradictory, ways. On the one hand, it is creating many new disputes for which traditional dispute resolution mechanisms are often ineffective. On the other hand, it is facilitating the development of novel, accessible, and flexible online dispute resolution (ODR) and prevention (ODP) avenues. The chapter analyzes the conditions under which such novel processes can enhance access to justice and overcome the efficiency-fairness trade-off, a long-time characteristic of the traditional dispute resolution field.

The following text is excerpted from Section 3 of NRMCs book: Taking the High Road: A Guide to Effective and Legal Employment Practices for Nonprofits.. Having an internal mechanism for resolving disputes is like wearing a seat belt - the internal restraint can help a nonprofit avoid harm from a civil lawsuit. Providing an outlet for employees frustrations at the workplace is a proven safety valve. Rather than turning a deaf ear to complaints, nonprofits need to provide employees with a credible listener who will also provide an objective review of their grievance. Employees will feel fairly treated if they have had an opportunity to tell their story, and the nonprofit has the benefit of learning, outside of litigation, the details of the employees concerns. Insurance carriers and defense lawyers recommend that every employer have some sort of internal procedure for resolving complaints.. Past decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court concerning sexual harassment decreed that when there was a ...
The following tables show the typical issues involved in taxi and hostel conflict. They also outline the types of waging techniques people are using. The designer can use these tables to compare and contrast typical taxi or hostel conflicts with the system under study. This would shorten the learning-curve of the change team in determining what types of approaches work and which do not. Table 1 outlines the typical disputes occurring in a system experiencing taxi conflict. The information for this table was taken from the Goldstone Commissions inquiry into taxi violence, events from the Western Cape Taxi War, the August 1993 Johannesburg Taxi Indaba and numerous discussions with local and regional peace committee members who were involved in resolving various types of taxi conflict in regions throughout the country.. By categorizing the different types of disputes, such as unfairness of permit distribution, intimidation at taxi ranks, or allegations of police interference, the designer can ...

The airline, trying to recover from a two-month strike by pilots which paralysed operations between July and September, grounded flights to China and the United Kingdom.. Despite putting its overseas and domestic flights on ice, the state-owned airline, which resumed flights after the government stepped in to settle the pilots outstanding allowances and pay, was continuing with its regional flight schedule.. At the heart of the dispute is believed to be a debt running into several hundreds of thousands of dollars owed to its A1 jet fuel suppliers.. In London, Air Zimbabwes General Manager for Europe would only confirm that the Harare-London flight scheduled for Sunday, and the return flight scheduled for Monday, had been cancelled.. "We have informed our passengers about this development, and we are very sorry about the ...
As has been stated earlier, employees who are covered under the definition of Workman can take recourse to the machinery provided under the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 against employers to assert their rights. However, a large number of persons engaged in jobs particularly in the IT sector and even the service sector may not come within the definition of workman, therefore the machinery provided under Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 is of no help to these employees, seeking recovery of their dues or damages from their employers. Recently with the clarification given by the Tamil Nadu government, wherein IT employees are free to form unions and with the High Court recognizing and IT employee as workman, things might slowly change the scenario.. There are a few legislations where both workmen and employee are covered and thus the redressal machinery provided therein serves to secure the rights of both workmen and employees. Employees can approach the machinery under Payment of Gratuity Act, ...

Fortinet has settled a long-running legal dispute with Trend Micro over its alleged infringement of Trends patent for server-based anti-virus technology. Financial terms of settlement, announced Monday, were not disclosed.. As part of the deal, both firms agreed to dismiss US International Trade Commission (ITC) proceedings and pending civil lawsuits in US federal courts. Last August the ITC passed an order blocking Fortinet from importing its FortiGate anti-virus firewall products into the US, pending resolution of a patent dispute with rival Trend Micro. The ruling upholds an earlier preliminary finding that Fortinet had infringed Trends patent (US patent 5,623,600).. The ruling meant Fortinet was able to support its existing customers but was prevented from supplying new US customers with anti-virus updates for FortiGate appliances bought after the order was issued, potentially diminishing the appeal of Fortinets all-in-one security product. The US accounted for 30 per cent of Fortinet ...

WASHINGTON -- Argentinas economy minister, Domingo Cavallo, played down a dispute over the mix of bonds its foreign creditor banks will take in a $31 billion debt deal.. Banks have been opting for a mix of 80% fixed-rate par bonds and 20% floating-rate discount bonds, whereas the U.S. Treasury is pressing them to accept a 50-50 mix.. Argentina initially sided with the United States. But Mr. Cavallo, in Washington for the International Monetary Fund/World Bank meeting, told reporters it makes no real difference to his country.. The dispute is one of the reasons the banks, which were hoping to sign the pact last week, have not been able to do so, though there is consensus that it should go through eventually.. There is no perception that it wont be signed, Mr. Cavallo said. Par bonds, because they are exchanged at full face value, require more collateral in the form of U.S. Treasury zero-coupon bonds than do discount bonds, which are at 65% of face value.. Bankers say par bonds are more ...

... November 30, 2007 , Page 4. RECENTLY, VOTERS in Kennebunkport, Maine, approved a new Mass Gathering Ordinance which would make obtaining a permit for protests more difficult and more costly--but according to the Maine Civil Liberties Union, it is an unconstitutional infringement of civil liberties.. Kennebunkport was the "Mecca" for dissent this past summer. President Bush spent more time than usual at his familys summer home. He entertained heads of state Vladimir Putin of Russia and Nickolas Sarkozy of France, as well as vacationing with his war-profiteer cronies who "summer" there.. President Bushs visits attracted massive antiwar and impeachment demonstrations that brought the national and international media. Town officials received complaints from the business community, some wealthy retirees "who did not retire to the town to have to see protests in the streets" and, perhaps, even the Bush family.. Whatever the reason, the town wanted to ...
Last night on his radio show, Alan Colmes played his entire interview with Senator Robert Byrd, Democratic Senator from West Virginia. An edited version of the interview was also played on Hannity & Colmes and reported on by Deborah. On the radio, the interview took up the whole second hour of the show. Again and again Senator Byrd returned to the theme that the Republicans threat to eliminate the filibuster puts not just a senate rule but our constitutional rights at stake. Byrd called it an attempt to stifle dissent. If they succeed in stifling dissent in the senate, Senator Byrd argued, it will spread. He insisted that he would be as vehemently against the measure if it were Democrats trying to do the eliminating.. After hearing Senator Byrd speak so eloquently on the importance of the filibuster, a headline on a FOXNews.com article was all the more glaring: Senate Panel Protects ANWR Vote From Filibuster.. Comments: Once again, the Republicans put their own self-interest over American ...

Via How Appealing comes news of this vote to deny rehearing en banc in Zimmerman v. City of Austin.. The vote is not all that surprising given that since Randall v. Sorrell, courts generally have not struck down campaign finance limits as unconstitutionally too low. (I helped defend San Diegos limits against such a challenge in the Thalheimer litigation.). What is perhaps more surprising is that newly appointed judge James Ho, joined by Judge Edith Jones, issued a blistering dissent from the denial of rehearing en banc, essentially adopting Justice Thomass extreme position that all campaign contribution limits are unconstitutional, and offering challengers what the judge considers to be a more successful path to bring another challenge to the Austin City Limits.. As Howard notes, Judge Willett did not join in this rehearing en banc dissent.. Update:. ...

This is a guest post from Alan Yu, the U.S. National Contact Point for the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

1. Theres a need to web enable dispute workflow in healthcare. As e-patient Dave pointed out, I did not hear about any data concerns regarding personal health records likely because there was no easy way to raise the issue. Hospitals have policies regarding medical record disputes. Generally the workflow involves writing letters, making phone calls, and resolving disputes via committee. As the country implements more electronic records and shares more data (with patient consent), among more stakeholders, we need to embrace automated dispute resolution workflows such as are used by eBay. In healthcare, the issues are complex because the medical record is a legal record and there are many compliance issues involved in annotating it. However, I can imagine adding a comment field to the problem list which could be electronically annotated by the patient, so a clinician examining the record could understand the patients point of view if data is disputed. In our medication reconciliation ...

Why is crystallisation so important?. Crystallisation of a dispute is extremely important as the Courts can refuse to enforce decisions from adjudications if the notice to adjudicate has been served before a dispute has actually crystallised. That is to say, where one party formally presents the claim and the other party disputes the claim.. As adjudications can incur significant costs, then costs may have been incurred unnecessarily if it then transpires that the decision is unenforceable.. It sounds pretty straightforward…. The case law surrounding disputes and whether they have crystallised can be complex. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to discuss the facts of your claim and we can provide specific advice tailored to your matter.. Someone has issued an adjudication against me but the dispute has not crystallised - what can I do?.
