HOLIDAY GREETINGS FROM MM&P

“DON’T MAKE GOVERNMENT WORKERS POLITICAL PAWNS,” TRANSPORTATION UNIONS SAY

The U.S. Coast Guard is one of nine federal agencies where employees are facing the holidays without pay because of the impasse between the White House and Congress over President Trump’s proposed Southern border wall.

An estimated 42,000 Coast Guard service members and employees are affected by the government shutdown, which began Friday when the Senate and House adjourned several hours prior to a midnight deadline, ending efforts to secure a stopgap spending package.

Due to the stalemate over the border wall, Congress and the White House have been unable to reach a deal on a continuing resolution to keep the federal government fully open and running.

On Saturday, 380,000 federal employees were furloughed; 420,000 will continue to work without pay.

Among the employees affected are agents at Customs and Border Protection and the Drug Enforcement Administration, and forecasters at the National Weather Service.

Since the Department of Defense, which houses all branches of the military except the Coast Guard, has already received funding, employees and service members there will not be immediately affected.

Congress typically passes a retroactive compensation package to cover missed paychecks, but it is unclear what will happen in this case.

President Trump has said that unless his border wall plan receives $5 billion in funding, “there will be a shutdown that will last for a very long time.”

Labor unions have called out politicians for Washington’s dysfunction.

“Failing to fund nine federal agencies is nothing to boast about,” says Larry I. Willis, president of the AFL-CIO Transportation Trades Department (TTD), of which MM&P is a member.

“The latest partial shutdown of our government will directly impact millions of federal workers, place a strain on our nation’s transportation system, and have broad economic consequences.”

“Make no mistake: this shutdown was preventable and was directly caused by the ever-changing positions of the president,” he says.

“Because of this recklessness, for the third time this year, America’s federal workforce, and the people and communities who rely on government services, are being held hostage.”

“Federal workers–including those who play a vital role in keeping our transportation system safe and secure–are real people with families to feed, not political pawns to be sacrificed on a whim.”

“We urge Congress and President Trump to do what is right for our nation’s federal workforce, our country, and our economy and fully fund the government.”

CAPTAIN OF SUNKEN OIL TANKER ORDERED TO PAY MASSIVE FINE FOR 2002 DISASTER

In a legal case that has been winding its way through courts in Europe for well over a decade, Captain Apostolos Mangouras was ordered last week by the Supreme Court of Spain to pay billions of euros in damages.

His ship, the single-hulled oil tanker PRESTIGE, sank off Spain’s northwestern coast in 2002 in a violent storm after authorities in several countries had denied it a port of refuge.

The resulting fuel oil spill affected thousands of miles of coastline in what is considered one of Europe’s worst environmental disasters.

Criminal and civil suits against the now 83-year-old captain have continued for almost 20 years.

In 2016, despite testimony that he and the chief engineer had done everything possible to avert the disaster, he was sentenced by Spain’s Supreme Court to two years in prison for “recklessness.”

In last week’s decision, the same court ruled that the captain and the insurers of the ship are to pay Spain 1.6 billion euros in damages and France 61 million euros.

The maritime industry has united in defense of the captain, calling the case a clear example of “criminalization.”

The European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF) and the European Community Shipowners’ Association (ECSA) issued a joint statement on the criminal case, calling it an example of “judicial harassment.”

A Provincial Court in Galicia in 2013 had found Mangouras innocent, saying that he and the chief engineer had “bravely fulfilled” their professional duties in attempting to save the ship.

When the hull was breached, Mangouras, the chief engineer and the chief mate remained on board the damaged tanker, risking their lives.

The PRESTIGE eventually broke in two and sank.

We “cannot accept that seafarers should have to pay such a heavy price whilst the Maritime Authority, who had been exempted from any liability, ordered the vessel away from any port of refuge, with well-known catastrophic effects upon the natural environment,” the ETF and the ECSA said when the captain was ordered to prison in 2016.

“It is beyond dispute that seafarers are too often used as easy scapegoats upon whom to shift all the responsibility for possible environmental damages, and unfairly sued, sometimes in flagrant breach of their fundamental rights.”

The two said the ruling and others like it have an extremely negative effect on efforts to recruit qualified young people to maritime careers.

Others in the industry, including MM&P, have spoken out strongly and repeatedly against the criminalization of Captain Mangouras, who is now 83 years old.

MM&P FEDERAL CREDIT UNION CELEBRATES ITS 60th BIRTHDAY!

Masters, Mates & Pilots Federal Credit Union offers savings accounts, free checking, ATM/debit cards, nationwide free ATM access, free online bill pay, vehicle loans and more.

Don’t have an account at the credit union? Now is a great time to open one!

The MM&P Federal Credit Union has been a leader in the credit union industry since it was first granted a charter in 1958.

This year, it celebrated its 60th birthday.

“The most common question we hear is ‘How is a credit union different from a bank?’” says Credit Union Manager Kathy Klisavage.

The answer? Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations that exist to serve their members.

Like banks, credit unions accept deposits, make loans and provide a wide array of other financial services.

But as member-owned and cooperative institutions, credit unions provide a safe place to save and borrow at reasonable rates.

“We’re proud of our longstanding tradition of providing excellent member service and great rates,” Klisavage says.

“As a member-owned financial institution, we transact your business with a personal touch by taking the credit union approach of ‘people helping people’ to heart.”

When you first join, you’ll open a Share Savings Account.

Your share account establishes you as a member of the credit union, and represents your “share” of the ownership of the credit union.

As an MM&P FCU member, you get full access to the host of financial services offered.

You can bank with the MM&P FCU from anywhere at any time, thanks to its industry-leading member service and electronic banking platform.
