The two are to meet in what Balpa calls “last ditch” talks to negotiate an agreement that could prevent a crippling strike by Virgin Atlantic’s pilots. If the talks fail, pilots could be balloted as early as this week to decide whether or not to launch industrial action and cause further chaos to air passengers.Balpa, which represents over 75 per cent of airline and helicopter pilots in the UK, said the dispute is over the number of days pilots are allowed to take off in addition to holiday privilege.Virgin pilots have been angered by changes to a system which guarantees them 120 days off a year, on top of holiday, in return for routinely working weekends and bank holidays.General secretary at the union Jim McAuslan said: “Balpa always does what it can to assist airlines through downturns, as many airlines will testify, and we did this with Virgin during these past difficult years.” McAuslan added: “To now find that the company is breaching an agreement and denying many pilots their entitlement to the equivalent of a weekend off is a real slap in the face and one which we cannot accept.”Virgin Atlantic, which is owned by Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, said that today’s meeting with its pilots is routine. A statement from the airline said: “We have not had any notification of a ballot. We have a routine, monthly meeting with our pilots and we will be discussing any issues that arise in that forum.”Should hundreds of Virgin Atlantic pilots strike, it will serve as an added headache to air passengers, who have already grappled with a handful of recent travel disruptions, including the lengthy British Airways cabin crew strikes and the closure of UK and European airspace due to the Iceland volcano.

US Fed makes waves with hints of QE2

first_img KCS-content Tuesday 21 September 2010 8:32 pm THE US Federal Reserve suggested it could enter another round of quantitative easing (QE) yesterday, as its rate-setting panel met in Washington to decide whether to intervene in the shaky economy. The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) departed from previous language in its monthly statement, saying it “is prepared to provide additional accommodation if needed to support the economic recovery and to return inflation, over time, to levels consistent with its mandate”. After its meeting in August, the Fed had simply said it would “employ its policy tools as necessary”. Pressure has been growing on Fed chairman Ben Bernanke to consider pouring billions of pounds into the US economy, described by some as QE2. Recent figures showed that 9.6 per cent of the workforce is unemployed, while growth in the second quarter slowed to a yearly rate of 1.6 per cent. “Prior to today’s statement, Fed officials indicated that the economy would have to slow further from here to justify additional easing,” said Société Générale analyst Aneta Markowska in a note. “The new language implies a potential shift in the Fed’s reaction function whereby several quarters of slow growth may be enough to justify further action.”The Fed last intervened in 2008, when it bought $1.7 trillion (£1.06 trillion)?in longer-term bonds.The FOMC decided to hold interest rates at between zero and 0.25 per cent, as expected, with only inflation hawk Thomas Hoenig dissenting. Hoenig has disagreed with the nine-strong panel for the last six months, and explained in the committee’s statement he believes the continued low level “will lead to future imbalances that undermine stable long-run growth”. US bonds surged following the meeting yesterday afternoon, with the yield on the two-year note hitting a record low, and the dollar fell sharply.

Verizon to pay dividends in 2012

first_img whatsapp Verizon to pay dividends in 2012 KCS-content Thursday 23 September 2010 8:37 pm whatsapp Share US communications firm Verizon hinted it may resume dividend payments at its joint venture with Vodafone in 2012. The company, which holds a 55 per cent controlling stake in Verizon Wireless, stopped paying dividends in a move widely seen as an attempt to squeeze Vodafone out. Verizon chief executive Ivan Seidenberg said it would probably resume dividends once it had paid off its remaining debt. It has $15bn (£9.6bn) net debt but generates $1bn in cash a month.

Sales leap for Travis Perkins as it warns of looming spending cuts

first_img Builders’ merchant and DIY retailer Travis Perkins yesterday announced higher sales, but pointed to signs that government spending cuts had begun to bite.Travis, which trades from more than 1,200 branches under Travis Perkins, Keyline, Wickes and other brands, said turnover at branches in its merchanting division open at least a year increased 10.3 per cent in the three months to 30 September.The group said its outlook for the year as a whole remained unchanged, although growth in merchanting had begun to slow. “This rate has shown signs of moderating in the most recent few weeks of trading,” it said.Travis warned in July that public sector new construction would face pressure from spending reductions and new house-building was unlikely to continue the very strong growth of the first half.The firm, which is trying to buy plumbing and heating company BSS Group for about £580m to create the biggest plumbing and heating trade and retail distribution business group, said like-for-like sales at Wickes rose 0.6 per cent with relatively weaker trends in big-ticket purchases. Total group sales in the nine month period rose six per cent.

So far, Conoco has sold $7bn worth of oil and gas properties.

He adds retailers are also likely to suffer heavily as household income is squeezed by a combination of tax rises, the public sector pay freeze and job cuts. Deloitte says corporate balance sheets are less stretched than household and public sector budgets while the recent rise in business investment is encouraging.But Bootle adds: “It seems unlikely that the corporate sector will be able to offset the weakness in the rest of the economy, especially when a weak global recovery is set to prevent exports from taking full advantage of their increased competitiveness. The economic recovery is set to remain sluggish at best.” by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

A sale would allow Centro to reduce its debt load.Centro shares were halted ahead of an expected announcement today. A Centro spokeswoman declined to comment, while Blackstone wasnot immediately available.The $9.4bn purchase price equals book value for the assets, according to the source.Centro was one of corporate Australia’s first casualties of the global credit crisis, having saddled itself with too much debt.The company said last week that its total portfolio was valued at A$16.5bn (£10.3bn), while it has A$16bn in debt.Asset sales would need approval from Centro’s lenders, mainly hedge and distressed debt funds.Blackstone is unusual among private equity firms in having a large number of real estate investments. It oversaw $33.2bn of real estate assets at year-end, up 63 per cent from a year earlier, according to a Friday regulatory filing.

…as surveys highlight two tier economy in Eurozone

first_img GROWTH in the Eurozone’s economy has accelerated this month despite escalating fears over sovereign debt in several member states.An initial index reading of business output came in at 57.8 for April, up from 57.6 in March and the second highest since June 2007.All scores over 50 in the purchasing managers’ index (PMI) indicate economic expansion.“The April survey is consistent with GDP rising at a quarterly rate of 0.8 per cent, the same buoyant pace as signalled for the first quarter,” said economist Chris Williamson of Markit, which compiles the data.Job creation across the 17-country single currency area struck a three and a half year high, increasing in both manufacturing and services.However, yet again the positive figures were largely driven by the booming core economies. In?France, activity spiked from 59.1 to 62.4 – its highest since September 2000. In Germany the PMI printed 59.9. Elsewhere, growth “remained very modest in comparison, weakening to a three-month low,” the report said, highlighting a near stagnation in the service sector.Weak domestic demand is hampering growth in economies that do not have strong export sectors, the report said.Consumer confidence across the whole Eurozone took a further tumble this month, dropping to -11.4 from -10.6 in March, according to a preliminary EU reading released yesterday.“This is the second deterioration of consumer confidence in a row, now at levels seen in August 2010,” said Barclays Capital’s Françoise Cabau.Construction data was also released for the Eurozone yesterday, showing a 0.7 per cent monthly fall in February’s output after a 3.6 per cent spike in January.
