We reproduce hereunder the Circular No. UFBU/2018/01 Dated the 9th February 2018 issued by Com. Sanjeev K. Bandlish, Convenor, United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU), for information of all affiliates and members.

GENERAL SECRETARY

 In the background of virtual silence on the part of IBA to hold negotiations with UFBU on our current demands for revision of wages and services conditions, a meeting of UFBU was held at Mumbai on the 6th February 2018.

 

Delay in wage revision: The meeting was concerned to note that for the past three months, IBA has not held any meeting with us on our demands for wage revision despite assuring us in the meeting held in October, 2017 that shortly another meeting would be held when the IBA would make their offer. So far, there has been no response. Department of Financial Services of Government of India has also been communicating to all the Banks and IBA to conclude the settlement without delay. Even this has been ignored. Regrettably, when we took up the matter with the Government to intervene to expedite the settlement, there was no response. Hence, it was decided after due deliberations that agitational programmes including strike actions have to be resorted to.

 

Strike call: Accordingly, it was decided to give the call for All India Strike on the 15th March 2018 preceded by other protest programmes like deputation to Chairperson IBA, demonstrations, mass rallies, Badge wearing, Dharna, etc.

 

IBA invites UFBU for Talks: After our taking the decision on the 6th February 2018, we have been informed by the IBA vide their letter dated the 7th February 2018 that the next round of negotiations on our demands for wage revision has been fixed for the 21st February 2018.

 

In view of this, we shall take part in the negotiations on 21.02.2018 to impress upon the IBA to expedite the settlement. Looking to their response in the meeting on 21st February 2018, UFBU will meet immediately thereafter and take the decision about our agitational programme and strike call.

 

Continued attacks on Banking Sector – Mass signature Campaign : Further to our successful protest strike on 22.08.2017 and the massive Morcha to Parliament on 15.09.2017, it was decided to undertake mass signature campaign in the Petition to Speaker of Lok Sabha to seek the support of the people to our demands. Already the draft Mass Petition has been circulated to units. The meeting observed that the units are in the process of collecting signatures from the general public and the response is encouraging.

 

It was decided to complete the campaign by the end of March 2018 so that the Mass Petitions can be handed over to the Speaker of Lok Sabha in the first week of April, 2018 before the conclusion of the current Budget Session.

During the meeting, the following issues discussed in the meeting held on 3.11.2017 in the Sub-Group on demands relating to Disciplinary Action and Procedure were informed and further discussion took place.

i. For claiming travelling expenses for defending an employee in the departmental action, existing restrictions of ‘within the state’ be removed.

ii. Subsistence Allowance to be improved upon.

iii. Indiscriminate usage of Clause 5(j) to be stopped through proper guidelines / definition.

iv. Clarification with regard to provision of Clause 6(e) i.e. bringing down by two stages in the scale of pay and applicability of the same to employees who have already reached maximum in the scale of pay.

v. Clarification to be given that minor misconducts clearly enumerated under Clause 7 of BPS dated 10.04.2002 should not be brought as major misconducted under Clause 5.

vi. Multiple charges for one incident should not be made out.

vii. Punishment order by the Disciplinary Authority not to be implemented till the final disposal of Appeal by the Appellate Authority.

viii. Issuance of charge sheet under Pension Regulation to Award Staff after retirement to be stopped since it is not provided in Bipartite Settlement.

ix. Awarding the punishment of stoppage of increments should be without affecting superannuation benefits, as in the case of Officers.

x. Provision for appeal against suspension.

xi. In case of punishment of dismissals, a provision for Review Authority after Appellate Authority.

xii. Deletion of Fine as a punishment.

It was decided that the conclusions on the discussion on these issues would be finalised in the next meeting.

Thereafter, the following issues were taken up for discussions:

– Simplified formula for calculation of overtime wages. Unions submitted their views and the issue would be discussed further.

– On the issue of introduction of Leave Bank providing for voluntary contribution of leave by the employees to a common pool and utilisation of the same for sanctioning leave to those employees who suffer from major diseases and prolonged illness and have not leave to their credit, Unions submitted their Note containing their views and explained their proposal. It was decided to discuss the issue further.

– On our demands like Child Care Leave for women employees, Sabbatical Leave, Study Leave, etc., it was agreed that Unions would submit a Note for further discussion.

We pointed out that considerable time has elapsed since commencement of the discussions in May, 2017 on our Charter of Demands, but so far IBA has not come forward with their offer on wage increase and hence demanded that the next meeting of the Full Negotiating Committee should be fixed up at the very earliest for this purpose.
