SETTLE 10 POINT CHARTER OF DEMANDS OF CONFEDERATION

2 days nation-wide strike on 8th & 9th January 2019 – Confederation

 CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES

CIRCULAR Dated 28-11-2018

DECISIONS OF THE NATIONAL SECRETARIAT MEETING OF CONFEDERATION HELD AT NEW DELHI ON 20-11-2018

NATIONAL SECRETARIAT MEETING OF THE CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS WAS HELD AT NEW DELHI ON 20-11-2018 UNDER THE PRESIDENTSHIP OF COM: K.K.N.KUTTY. THE FOLLOWING ARE THE IMPORTANT DECISIONS TAKEN IN THE MEETING.

  •     SCRAP NPS & RESTORE OPS
  •     HONOUR ASSURANCES GIVEN BY GROUP OF MINISTERS.
  •     INCREASE MINIMUM PAY AND FITMENT FORMULA.
  •     IMPLEMENT OPTION-1 FOR PENSIONERS.
  •     REGULARISE GDS & CONTRACT, CASUAL LABOURERS.

SETTLE 10 POINT CHARTER OF DEMANDS OF CONFEDERATION.

NATION WIDE TWO DAYS STRIKE ON

8th & 9th JANUARY 2019

STOP THE DISASTROUS NEO-LIBERAL POLICIES.

DEFEAT THE RULING CLASS POLITICS BEHIND IT.

National Secretariat of Confederation unanimously decided to make the two days nation-wide strike on 2019 January 8th & 9th a grand success in the Central Govt. Employees Sector. The decision of the Central Headquarters to postpone the one day strike on 15-11-2018 and to organise two days nationwide strike on 2019 January 8th & 9th is ratified by the National Secretariat. Srike will be organised on 10 points charter of demands of Confederation (reproduced below). First and most important demand of the strike will be “Scrap NPS & Restore OPS”. In connection with the strike, following decisions are taken.

1. Strike campaign is most important. The message of the strike and the demands raised should reach each and every Central Govt. employee and pensioner. Notices, pamphlets, posters etc. should be printed and circulated among all employees. Maximum campaign through websites, journals of affiliates, print and electronic media and social media should be made by each affiliated Unions/Associations/Federations and C-O-Cs. The campaign should be intensified in the coming days.

2. Each affiliated organization of Confederation should issue separate circulars to their lower units instructing them to participate in the two days strike and also to organise intensive campaign programmes for ensuring 100% participation of employees of each affiliate in the strike. It is noticed that, during previous strikes, some of the affiliates had not issued any separate circulars and no specific instructions to participate in the strike was given to their lower units. This has created problem for other organisations also at the lower level. This time every affiliate should issue their own circulars to lower units.

3. All State/District level C-O-Cs should convene their managing body meetings immediately and work out detailed plan for intensive campaign among the employees under their jurisdiction. C-O-Cs should play an effective and leading role in making the strike a grand success.

4. All affiliated organisations should plan and announce their own separate campaign tour programme of their leaders for organising strike at all centres and all offices. This is most important. Unless the leaders of affiliates make their own campaign tour programmes, the strike cannot be organised in an effective manner in all units.

5. Confederation National Secretariat Members will be visiting only selected important centres in each state for campaign meetings. The tour programme of National Secretariat members will be published shortly. Programme may be finalised by mutual consultation of C-O-C leaders and National Secretariat members concerned. (Campaign by each affiliate and C-O-C is given top most priority as the National Secretariat members are attending limited meetings only.)

6. Strike notice should be served by each affiliate separately to their departmental head on 12-12-2018 (6th anniversary day of 12-12-2012 one day strike). Confederation Central headquarters will serve strike notice to Cabinet Secretary on 12-12-2018. Copy of the strike notice should be served to all lower authorities also organising mass demonstrations of maximum employees. Complaints are received that some of the affiliates never serve separate strike notice to their Departmental head and also never circulate the copy of the strike notice served to lower units. As a result, when C-O-C leaders approach, their lower unit leaders say that they have not received any instructions from their Central headquarters to participate in the strike. This time Central Headquarters of all affiliated organisations should serve strike notice to their departmental heads and should also issue instructions to their lower units to participate in the strike. Affiliation of those organisations which are not serving strike notice or issuing instruction to their lower units to participate in the two days strike will be withdrawn, as their is no meaning in continuing the affiliation of those organisations which do not implement the decision of the National Secretariat of Confederation.

7. If due to unavoidable circumstances, any organistion cannot serve the strike notice on 12-12-2018, they may serve the strike notice on any other day before 23-12-2018.

8. Even though all the leaders of Confederation and its affiliates are well aware of the full details of each demand raised in the 10 point charter of demands including NPS, it is decided to publish detailed note on each demands in the Confederation website in coming days as campaign material and talking points.

9. As almost all Central Govt. employees and pensioners are agitated over the unhelpful and negative attitude of the NDA Government, there is every possibility of making the two days strike a thundering success, provided the leadership of each affiliates and C-O-Cs rise upto the occasion and start mobilisation now onwards with all seriousness.

Our wages and other benefits are under attack.

Our job security is under attack.

Our social security is under attack.

Our trade union rights are under attack.

Let us intensify our struggles from defensive to offensive and defeat the anti-worker policies of the Government. Central Govt. employees can do it under the banner of Confederation. Make the two days strike historic success. Remember, we are not alone, the entire working class of India belonging to Banks, Insurance, BSNL and other public sectors, State Govt. employees and Teachers etc. etc. are all on strike on 2019 January 8th & 9th. Don’t be a spectator, join the strike proudly and be a part of the fighting working class of India. Our slogan is “change the disastrous neo-liberal policies, or else we shall change the Government”.

OBSERVE 2018 DECEMBER 12

as “SCRAP NPS & RESTORE OPS” DEMANDS DAY

 National Secretariat of Confederation has decided to observe 12th December 2018 (strike notice serving day) as Demands Day raising the demand – “Scrap NPS & Restore OPS” throughout the country. All affiliates and C-O-Cs are requested to observe the day in a befitting manner by conducting demonstrations in front of all offices, organising gate meetings/general bodies and also wearing badges with the slogan – “Scrap NPS & Restore OPS”. The struggle against NPS is getting intensified day by day. Delhi State Govt. has passed a resolution in the State Assembly demanding the Central Govt. to scrap NPS imposed on Delhi State Govt. employees. State Govts. of Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Tamilnadu has already appointed Expert Review Committees to submit recommendations regarding modalities for scrapping of NPS and restoring OPS. Tamilnadu State Government employees and Teachers (all organisations) have decided to organise indefinite strike demanding scraping of NPS and restoration of OPS. Confederation is in touch with other organisations in Central Sector and is exploring the possibility of organising higher form of trade union action including indefinite strike. After the two days strike on January 8th & 9th, an All India Convention of NPS employees along with other like-minded organisations will be organised. Our ultimate aim is to organise an indefinite strike, no sooner than later, exclusively on one demand ie; “scrap NPS & Restore OPS”.

3. All India Trade Union Education Camp of Confederation:
National Secretariat meeting decided to organise an All India Trade Union Camp of Confederation. Venue, date etc. will be finalised in consultation with C-O-Cs shortly and detailed circular will be issued thereafter.

4. All India Women’s Trade Union Education Camp – Haridwar – A grand success:
All India Women’s Trade Union Camp of Confederation was held at Haridwar (Uttarakhand) on 29th & 30th October, 2018.

MWCD links Sexual Harassment Complaints Portal ‘SHe-Box’ to central/ state ministries & districts for speedy disposal of cases

Ministry of Women and Child Development
MWCD links Sexual Harassment Complaints Portal ‘SHe-Box’ to central/ state ministries & districts for speedy disposal of cases

22 NOV 2018

The Ministry of Women and Child Development has linked SHe-Box, the online portal to report complaints of Sexual Harassment at Workplace, to all the Central Ministries, Departments and 653 districts across 33 States/Union Territories. For prompt disposal of complaints on SHe-Box, each case goes directly to the central/ state authority concerned having jurisdiction to take action in the matter. Cases on She-Box can be monitored by the complainants and Ministry WCD, reducing the time taken in case disposal. Till November 20, 2018, as many as 321 complaints have been registered with ‘SHe-Box’ out of which 120 are related to central ministries/departments, 58 are from state governments and 143 are from private companies.

Elaborating on the portal, Smt. Gandhi said, “SHe-Box portal is an effort to provide speedy remedy to women facing sexual harassment at workplace. With the linking of the portal to central and state governments, once a complaint is submitted to the portal, it will be directly sent to the section of the employer concerned. Through this portal, WCD as well as the complainant, can monitor the progress of the inquiry. This is a proactive step taken by the WCD Ministry in the wake of the worldwide campaign #MeToo, where women have related their experience of facing sexual harassment and abuse at workplace.”

SHe-Box, which was launched by WCD Minister Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi last year, offers the facility of making online complaints of sexual harassment at workplace to all women employees in the country including government and private employees. Those who have already filed a written complaint with the concerned Internal Complaint Committee (ICC) or Local Complaint Committee (LCC) constituted under the Sexual Harassment Act are also eligible to file their complaint through this portal.

The portal can be accessed at the following link: http://shebox.nic.in/

The Ministry has also published a Handbook and Training Module on the SH Act to provide information about the provisions of the Act in easy to use practical manner. The private organizations are encouraged to customize the Training Module as per their extant service rules and disciplinary procedures prescribed therein.

(i) The Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 applies to establishments employing 10 or more than 10 persons in Factories, Mines, Plantation, Shops & Establishments and other entities. The main purpose of this Act is to regulate the employment of women in certain establishments for certain period before and after child birth and to provide maternity benefit and certain other benefits. The Act was amended through the Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Act, 2017 which, inter alia, has increased the paid maternity leave to women employees from 12 weeks to 26 weeks.

(ii) While the implementation of the provision is good in Public Sector, there are reports that it is not good in Private Sector and in contract jobs. There is also a wide perception that private entities are not encouraging women employees because if they are employed, they may have to provide maternity benefit to them, particularly 26 weeks of paid holiday. In addition, the Ministry of Labour Employment is also getting complaints from various quarters that when the employers come to know that their women employee is in the family way or applies for maternity leave, the contracts are terminated on some flimsy grounds. There have been several representations before the Labour Ministry on how the extended maternity leave has become a deterrent for female employees who are asked to quit or retrenched on flimsy grounds before they go on maternity leave.

(iii) Therefore, the Ministry of Labour & Employment is working on an incentive scheme wherein 7 weeks’ wages would be reimbursed to employers who employ women workers with wage ceiling upto Rs. 15000/- and provide the maternity benefit of 26 weeks paid leave, subject to certain conditions. It is estimated that approximately an amount of Rs. 400 crores would be the financial implication for Government of India, Ministry of Labour & Employment for implementing the proposed incentive scheme.

Major Impact:

The proposed Scheme, if approved and implemented shall ensure the women in this country an equal access to employment and other approved benefits alongwith adequate safety and secure environment. Also, the women shall continue to bear the major share of household work as well as child care. The work places will be more and more responsive to the family needs of the working women.

Current Stage of the Proposal:

There are some media reports that this Scheme has been approved/notified. However, it is clarified that Ministry of Labour & Employment is in the process of obtaining necessary budgetary grant and approvals of Competent Authorities. The reports that it will be funded from Labour Welfare Cess, is also incorrect, as no such cess exists under this Ministry.

Most of central government department websites lack transparency: CIC audit

Most of central government department websites lack transparency: CIC audit

Most of the central government department websites lack in suo-motu disclosure of public information under a mandatory provision of the Right to Information (RTI) Act, according to an official report released Tuesday.

It said the ultimate objective of transparency by them can be performed only by the government who control all supply side of information.

Transparency watchdog Central Information Commission (CIC) has undertaken an evaluation to ascertain the quality of suo-motu disclosures under Section 4 of the RTI Act made by various public authorities.

The evaluation was conducted by a committee comprising A N Tiwari, former Chief Information Commissioner, and M M Ansari, former Information Commissioner.

The committee evolved an evaluation format and requested all public authorities to fill it up.

Out of 2,092 public authorities registered with the commission, feedback was received from 838.

“It has been found that out of 838 public authorities, 158 public authorities got grade A, 157 public authorities got grade B, 118 public authorities got grade C, 133 public authorities got grade D and 272 public authorities got grade E,” the report said.

The departments getting 90-100 per cent score in the evaluation got grade A, those getting 80-89 per cent were put in grade B, 70-79 per cent in grade C, 60-69 in grade D and below 60 per cent in grade E.

“We have been at pains to point out in our report that while the audit of the websites of the public authorities is a necessary step in the direction of ushering in greater transparency in the functioning of the state instrumentalities, the ultimate objective still remains the embrace of transparency by them as central to governance,” the report said.

This task can be performed only by the government who control all supply side of information, it said.

“It is our hope that the initiative taken by the Central Information Commission to evaluate disclosure standards on websites of public authorities shall usher in the change which the RTI Act enjoins. We repeat that institutional transparency is the final frontier of the Right to Information movement,” the report said.

Mentioning its major findings, the CIC report said missing information largely relates to “policy on transfer and posting of senior officers deployed at important and sensitive places; details of domestic and foreign visits undertaken by the senior officials and sources and methods of funding political parties or identification of donors”, among others.

The report has been accepted by the Central Information Commission, subject to any observations that may now be received by the commission from the public authorities.

National Minimum Guidelines for setting up and running creches under Maternity Benefit Act, 2017

National Minimum Guidelines for setting up and running creches under Maternity Benefit Act, 2017

Government to refund employers for seven weeks of maternity leave given to employees: WCD

The government will give employers the salaries for seven of the 26 weeks of maternity leave for women earning more than Rs 15,000 a month, the Women and Child Development ministry announced on Thursday.

The announcement, which covers the government as well as the private sector, comes in the wake of complaints that many companies were reluctant hire pregnant women after maternity leave was extended from 12 to 26 weeks and some were even firing women employees.

WCD Secretary Rakesh Srivastava said it has been decided to utilise the funds lying in the labour welfare cess to pay the employers.

“The utilisation of the labour welfare cess lying with the state governments has been very less. After talks with the Labour Ministry it has been decided that the seven of the 26 weeks of maternity leave for all women employees in the private and government sector getting more than Rs 15,000 a month would be paid from that fund,” Srivastava told reporters here.

The labour welfare cess has been given to state governments to ensure the welfare of workers.

Maternity leave was extended from 12 weeks to 26 weeks last year.

According to Srivastava, there were complaints from women that they were getting fired from their jobs due to the increased duration of maternity leave.

“The government has now decided that out of the 14 extra weeks, half of the amount of salary paid to the pregnant woman would be refunded to the employer from the funds of the labour welfare cess,” he said.

Till March 2017, there was Rs 32,632 crore in the fund. Of this, just Rs 7,500 crore has been utilised, he said.

“We would be refunding the salary of seven weeks to the employer so women do not face problems upon returning to work,” he said.

“The labour minister has agreed to the proposal and we are now carrying it forward. There will soon be a notification from the Labour Ministry with further details,” he added.

Comrades,

FALSE AND MALICIOUS PROPAGANDA
TO DEFAME THE BANK EMPLOYEES TU MOVEMENT
UNDER THE BANNER OF UFBU

Our attention has been drawn to a joint circular purported to have been issued by our organisation jointly with AIBEA. First up of all there is no meeting of 9 constituents of UFBU at Chennai today.

The contents are false, malicious and also to bring disrepute to banking unions as they firmly rejected the proposal of IBA, lock, stock and barrel in the recent discussions held on 12th Oct,18 at Mumbai. The release of the circular with the forged signatures of General Secretaries of AIBOA and AIBEA is squarely condemned.

Please don’t be misguided by the false news.

We are initiating appropriate steps to nab the culprit under the provisions of law applicable, as this mishap has to be nipped it in bud.

This is the danger in utilising technology beyond the required level.

Yours Comradely,
