NEW GENERAL ASSEMBLY PROPOSAL DISCUSSION AND VOTE
---------------------------------------------------

Title: Repeal "Fairness in Collective Bargaining"
Author: Sylh Alanor (co-authored by Junitaki-cho)
Purpose: To repeal previous legislation, arguing loopholes arising from unclear language might be seriously exploitable by anti-union employers and countries, consequently harming the target's intent.

Sylh Alanor wrote:General Assembly Resolution #530 “Fairness in Collective Bargaining” (Category: Regulation; Area of Effect: Labour Rights) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

The World Assembly,

Affirming that the protection of workers’ rights to unionise and collectively bargain is an admirable goal,

Understanding that some member nations may wish to balance unions’ rights with those of employers,

Concerned by the definition of ‘interference’ in clause 1, as it only prevents employers from attempting to gain control of labour unions and fails to provide any meaningful protections for the creation or operation of unions,

Noting that the term 'labour union' is not used consistently throughout the target, and that GAR#530 instead utilises various surrogate terms that unscrupulous employers and governments could effectively argue are different types of organisations, and that the protections over one type of organisation do not apply when their own organisation is considered to be another,

Disappointed by GAR#530's use of easily-exploitable language, which creates loopholes in the following sections:

  • 4c, which prohibits labour unions from ‘requiring excessive dues’ without defining what excessive would mean in this context, allowing anti-union governments to define any monetary amount or percentage of income as 'excessive',

  • 4d, which prohibits labour unions from influencing employers to pay for ‘unneeded workers’, stifling the efficacy of labour unions to intervene when employers seek to underpay or cut workers' hours, at will, any time an employer states the worker was 'unneeded',

Believing that GAR#530 does more through its language choices to harm the rights of workers than protect them,

Optimistic that a replacement proposal better suited to protecting labour unions and providing for fair negotiations will soon be passed,

Hereby repeals GAR#530, “Fairness in Collective Bargaining”.

Fairness in Collective Bargaining was and is a resolution I firmly believe in. Although I do agree that there are loopholes, there will always be loopholes in any resolution no matter who drafts it. I believe Fairness in Collective Bargaining is a strong resolution and should be kept.

The proposal raises some good points about the original resolution. As the author of Fairness in Collective Bargaining has voiced their support for this proposal and a replacement for the repeal target is nearing submission, I think it'd be safe to swap the target with a shiny new resolution that would fix the flaws pointed out in the proposal at hand.

They want an condemnation. Why give it to them? For raiding organisations, a condemnation from the Security Council is literally a badge of honour.

Considering that the author of "Fairness in Collective Bargaining" supports the repeal based on the arguments presented in the proposed repeal, I believe that we should vote for the proposal knowing that another proposal exists to replace what will be repealed.

Background Information

The Office's Analysis

A distinguished member of the NS sports community, Kelssek is nominated by the at-vote resolution "Commend Kelssek" to receive official recognition by the Security Council in the form of a shiny commendation badge. In addition to their impressive contributions to sports roleplaying, their historical involvement in the WA and its predecessor and work for The East Pacific, as convincingly presented by the proposal in a clear and structured manner, finally leave no doubt that the nominee is deserving of such. Thus, OWL recommends a vote FOR the at-vote resolution, "Commend Kelssek".

Tepertopia wrote:I'm not familiar with the nominee, but the accomplishments laid out in the proposal seem really extensive and are enough to merit a commendation, I think. Of course the proposal could have expanded a bit more on some points, as others here have pointed out, but I won't oppose it just for that.

Electrum is another known participant in the NS Sports scene and has authored SC resolutions such as "Commend Audioslavia" and "Commend Valanora" for their sporting achievements. On the forum thread for Commend Kelssek, they wrote:

Electrum wrote:I wholeheartedly endorse this resolution. Kelssek is a well deserved candidate for commendation. Kelssek's been instrumental in advancing human rights in the World Assembly, with two of its resolutions, the 'Convention Against Genocide' and 'Refugee Protection', forming an integral part of WA/GA law. Hosting four Olympic games also shows an insane amount of dedication -- I can attest to how difficult this achievement is -- many dozens of hours over a short period of time goes into hosting one of these, let alone four of them.

HumanSanity is a legislator in The South Pacific and a SC author. On The South Pacific WA Voting Centre's RMB, they wrote:

HumanSanity wrote:The more I think about it, I just become more skeptical of this proposal. I think the nominee is deserving but the writing is haphazard in some parts and generally lacks narrative and structure. It falls more than almost any other resolution for the "time to list some things" flaw, as it essentially consists of a list of UN/GA resolutions, a list of sports hostings and sports victories, and then a very very sloppy laundry list of every position they ever held in TEP. At no point does it create narrative and the TEP section in particular is sloppy, as positions do not equate to contributions. I'm against with a "go back, fix the writing, and try again" theme

Qvait is a legislator of The South Pacific. On The South Pacific WA Voting Centre's RMB they wrote:

Qvait wrote:While the proposed resolution has a somewhat solid RP component to it, the list of positions the subject has served as part of The East Pacific with no mention of their particular relevance undercuts the strength of the proposal. The author could improve the proposal by elaborating on the relevance of the subject serving in these positions or omitting the section entirely.

Praeceps is a citizen in The North Pacific and the author (and co-author) of several Security Council resolutions. On The North Pacific's forums, they wrote:

Praeceps wrote:Against. While the RP part may be commendable, the list of contributions to TEP are incredibly unspecific—it is just a list of positions—and should either be removed or explained further. I doubt that the list of positions needs to be included to make the case that the nominee is commendable.

Repeal "Fairness in Collective Bargaining"

there are loopholes which this proposal points out and I believe warrants a repeal and the author of "Fairness in Collective Bargaining" supports the proposal. There is a new proposal to replace the repeal is currently underway and Knowing that their is a replacement proposal is not far away, it is in my humble opinion safe to vote "For" the repeal.

NEW SECURITY COUNCIL PROPOSAL DISCUSSION AND VOTE
---------------------------------------------------

Title: Repeal "Liberate The Embassy"
Author: Alcala-Cordel
Purpose: To repeal the previous liberation of The Embassy, as defender forces have successfully repelled the raiders and it would hinder natives from long-term securing the region themselves.

Alcala-Cordel wrote:Security Council Resolution #344 “Liberate The Embassy” shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

The Security Council,

  1. Understanding that The Embassy has been secured from hostile forces,

  2. Believing that this Council should allow the nation in the region the ability to establish barriers of entry to prevent future invasions,

  3. Acknowledging that The Embassy must reimpose said barriers so as to remain protected,

  4. Hereby Repeals SCR# 344 "Liberate The Embassy".
