UFBU meeting All India Strike – Talks with IBA on wage revision – Offer increased to 8%

UFBU meeting All India Strike – Talks with IBA on wage revision – Offer increased to 8%

CIRCULAR NO. 31

Date: 30.11.2018

TO ALL AFFILIATES & MEMBERS
Dear Comrades,

  • Talks with IBA on wage revision – Offer increased to 8%
  • UFBU meeting – Call given for All India Strike on 26th 2018 against amalgamation of Bank of Baroda, Dena Bank and Vijaya Bank.

We reproduce hereunder the Circular No. UFBU/2018/20 Dated the 30th November 2018 issued by Com. Sanjeev K. Bandlish, Convenor, United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU), for information of all affiliates and members.

With revolutionary greetings,
Yours sincerely,
(SANJEEV K. BANDLISH)
GENERAL SECRETARY

“After the last round of discussions held on 12-10-2018, there was another round of Bipartite Talks between IBA and UFBU today in Mumbai. IBA team was led by Shri Rajkiran Rai G. (MD & CEO of Union Bank of India) Chairman of the Negotiating Committee of IBA. UFBU was represented by leaders of all the nine constituent unions.

IBA’s increased offer: Picking up the thread from the discussions of the last round of discussions wherein we had urged upon the IBA to improve their offer of 6% hike in the cost of pay slip components, IBA today revised their offer and increased their offer to 8% instead of 6% offered earlier. IBA also reiterated their formula of further wage increase based on their proposal linked to annual increase in Operating Profit and on Return on Assets of the Banks. While welcoming their improved offer, we stated that differential wage increase based profits of each Bank is not acceptable to us and that the wage revision in the Banks should be uniform as has been hitherto. We also further stated that their revised offer is far below our expectations. Hence, we urged upon the IBA to further revise their offer substantially to an acceptable level. We further stated that the issue of full mandate i.e. wage revision for Officers to cover all Officers upto Scale-VII should also be resolved. IBA expressed their limitations in this regard but we insisted them to find an amicable solution to this important issue.

We have requested the IBA to hold further discussions at the earliest and also hold Sub Committee meeting to sort out other remaining issues raised by us in the Charter of Demands. IBA agreed to this suggestion.

UFBU MEETING: Thereafter, meeting of the UFBU was held at AIBEA Office. While taking note of the improved offer of IBA, the meeting expressed its disappointment that the revised offer is totally inadequate to meet our expectations and further noted with concern the attitude of the IBA in not coming forward to resolve the mandate issue. The meeting decided to pursue these issues vigorously.

WE OPPOSE MERGER AND AMALGAMATION OF THE 3 BANKS – ALL INDIA STRIKE ON 26-12-2018: Regarding the proposed amalgamation of Bank of Baroda, Dena Bank and Vijaya Bank, the meeting noted that the Government and the concerned Banks were moving ahead with their decision and hence it was decided to give the call for observing All India Strike on 26th December, 2018.

Separate circular with other preparatory programmes will be issued shortly. We call upon all our constituent unions and members to start preparations for this strike action.

Comrades, we are passing through challenging times and hence our unity and united approach will be highly imperative to face these challenges and attacks.”

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”.

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.

Sub: Fixation of pay/ admissibility of increment under Rule 13 of Revised Pay Rules, 2008 in the situation of placement on non-functional basis in higher Pay Band/ Grade Pay.

Prior to implementation of recommendations of Sixth Central Pay Commission, fixation of pay of Railway employees on appointment from one post to another was governed by Rule 1313 {FR22(1)(a)(1)} and 1313 {FR22(1)(a)(2)} R-II depending upon whether situation involved assumption of duties and responsibilities of greater importance or otherwise. Rule 13 of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 governing fixation of pay on promotion on or after 1.1.2006, however, envisage grant of one increment equal to 3% of sum of the pay in the pay band and existing grade pay (to be rounded off to next multiple of 10) in the case of promotion from one grade pay to another in the revised pay structure. Further clarification were issued vide Board’s letter No. PC-VI/2008/I/RSRP/1 dated 11.02.2009 (RBE No. 28/2009).

2.

NFIR letter to Railway Board Regarding LARSGESS

No. 11/34/2018-Part 1

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dated: 09/11/2018

Dear Sir.
Sub: LARSGESS-reg.
Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)I-2015/RT-43 dated 26/09/2018 (RBE No.150/2018).

(ii) NFIR’s letter No. II/34/2018-Part I dated 27/09/2018 addressed to Hon’ble MR, copy to CRB, MS etc.
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)I-2015./RT-43 dated 28/09/2018 (RBE No. 151/2018).
(iv) NFIRs letter No. II/34/2018-Part I dated 03/10/2018.
(v) GS/NFIR’s personal discussion with CRB on 25/10/2018.

Kind attention is invited to GS/NFIR’s letter of even number dated 03rd October, 2018 to CRB (copy enclosed).

The subject was also discussed with the Member (Staff) by NFIR on 25th October, 2018 and explained the need for issuing instructions to GMs to appoint the wards of safety category staff who have already been selected prior to 27/10/2017. The MS has assured to take appropriate initiative and reach CRB for decision.

NFIR, therefore, requests the CRB to kindly see that orders are issued by Railway Board for appointing those selected wards of safety category staff early. As already requested by the Federation, CRB and Railway Board may kindly take conscious decision with regard to continuance of LARSGESS keeping in mind the reality that the Indian Railways is unique, complex and un-comparable with any other system and at times, decisions are required to be taken by Railways in larger public interest and equally safety of staff belonging to critical safety categories.

Yours faithfully,

Waiver of requirement of producing two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify the pensioner

Requirement of producing two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify the pensioner – Circular 205

Circular 205

No. AT/Tech/30-XX

Dated: 02.11.2018.

Sub: Waiver of requirement of producing two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify the pensioner.

During various Defence Pension Adalats, representations are being received against the requirement of producing two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify pensioner.

The issue has been examined and it is noticed that various checks to be observed by the Pension Disbursing Authorities (PDAs) before making payment for first time on new Pension Payment Orders (PPOs)/transferred PPOs are provided in para 584 of DPPI-2005 & 2013. Similarly, these checks were circulated to the PDAs as Annexure-A to important Circular No.113 dt 27/05/2005. Item No. 7 and No. 15 of DPPI and Annexure-A to above mentioned circular respectively states that two defence pensioners should identify a new pensioners (except officer).

Now a days, requirement of producing two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify the pensioner which is applicable to the pensioners below officer ranks does not seem correct, as PDAs are required to identify the pensioner based on marks of identification furnished in Descriptive Rolls/Descriptive Particulars and photographs provided to them.

Accordingly PDAs are requested to refer this office circular No. 197 dt 10/01/2018, and follow the guidelines issued there under for identification by additional documents produced by defence pensioners in absence of Aadhaar Number as indicated in Notification No. S.0 747(E) dt 03/03/2017 issued by Ministry of Defence, Deptt. of ESW rather than insisting the pensioner to produce two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify him/her.
