(1).       REVIEW OF 2ND CEC MEETING

(I).       Violation of Approved Transfer Norms --
            Secretary General stated that Chairman & Director (Admn) of CGWB have become adamant and violating the approved transfer norms existing in the Board .  He also narrated that Director (Admn) is expressing his inability regarding transfer & posting cases.  It is also repeatedly stated by Director (Admn) that  Association  has no power to make any correspondence  with the authority regarding transfer & posting cases  and he has no power  to consider any of these cases and taking clue to take up these issues with  the Chairman, if so.    In this regard, CEC requested him to issue a letter to Association which is pending till date resulting employees are not getting their transfers on own request/public interest despite of vacancy & norms.  And it is also observed that administration issuing unlawful transfer orders which creates financial hardship, harassment & mental agony.  It is also seen that guidelines for economy measures is not kept in mind while issuing such orders unnecessarily causing financial loss to the Government. He also quoted some examples such as DCM/ADCM/UDC/OS & SK/Foreman cases how the administration is keeping silence and asiding  without considering the staff grievances.  In this regard correspondences were made and reminders also given, but no fruitful result.   Therefore, it is established that employees are not getting transfers on request and at the same time the forcible transfers are taking place which is violation of Transfer Norms. Regarding transfer of  Com. Dinesh Kumar Shaunak, Assistant Foreman, Div.V, Ranchi, Com. Bhatnaik, Draughtsman, Com.P.S.Bhasme, TOD, Com. G.B. Mendhe, DCM , CGWB, from Hyderabad to Nagpur, Com. R. R. K. Sinha, Asstt.  & others reminder will be submitted to the  Director (Admn).

In this subject, a thread-bare discussion was passed and a resolution made in the house that the authority should be given one more chance with15 days (fifteen days) time   to consider all the genuine pending transfer cases otherwise this matter will be taken-up  in appropriate forum and agitational  programme may take place  and the Head of the Department  will be held responsible in future (Resolution enclosed) .  However, a letter will be issued  from CEC to all the Branch GS/Chairman to send a list of pending transfer cases in respect of their employees (post-wise, separately ) latest by 15.07.2014 positively,  so that, a consolidated request list can be prepared and submitted to the Board immediately. 

(II).      Disciplinary action against BEC/individual employees of Div.II, Ambala --
            Com. S.S. Acharya, Assistant Secretary General  stated, during the episode of Ambala issue it was clearly established  that Shri H. K. Manocha, EE, is the only trouble maker of whole drama and  a resolution was passed in the General Body meeting of BEC, Div.-II, Ambala held on  05.11.2013 for immediate transfer of Sri H. K. Manocha, EE, out of Ambala,  which has not yet been  carried out. In this regard a detail report was submitted by him.   The matter was discussed and decided that another fresh letter will be written to Director (Admn) for immediate transfer of present  Ambala Executive Engineer otherwise CEC will be compelled to write next higher authority in next forum.  This must be given top priority.  Regarding transfer of Angrej Singh, Mech, from Jodhpur to Ambala, Secretary General assured the house that same will be done before retirement of Chairman as assurance given at the time of cancellation of transfer orders of Com. Arjun Singh, Mech & Com. Rajnesh Kumar, TOD & GS of Div.II, Ambala.    However, transfer request of Com. Angrej Singh, Mech, will be  looked-into  before retirement of Chairman  i.e. 07/2014.  Also, Secretary General requested all the leaders to strictly adhere the instruction  of CEC in future if any,  and  decided to ignore  last three sentences of 2nd para of the minutes of 2nd CEC (2013-15).

(III).    Directions/Interference of the Ministry --
            This matter was discussed in length & breadth and decided to submit a reminder  to enforce the DOP&T guidelines & approved transfer norms/policy strictly otherwise the pending staff grievance  will be sent to Ministry.

Circular for 3rd CEC Meeting at Nagpur

Circular No. 13                                                           Dated 2.3.2014

GOVERNMENT REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE MAIN DEMANDS OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES.

CONFEDERATION NATIONAL SECRETARIAT CALLS UPON THE ENTIRE CG EMPLOYEES TO PROTEST AGAINST THE ARBITRARY AND UNILATERAL DECISION OF THE GOVERNMENT.

HOLD NATION WIDE PROTEST DEMONSTRATION IN FRONT OF ALL OFFICES AND AT ALL IMPORTANT CENTRES ON 7TH  MARCH 2014 OR AT ANY IMMEDIATE CONVENIENT DATE.
SEND PROTEST SAVINGRAM TO THE PRIME MINISTER.

PREPARE for AN INDEFINITE STRIKE IMMEDIATELY AFTER GENERAL ELECTION DEMANDING , MERGER OF DA , INTERIM RELIEF , INCLUSION OF GDS UNDER 7TH CPC, PARITY IN PENSION, DATE OF EFFECT 1/1/2014, SCRAP NEW PENSION SCHEME, SETTLE ANOMOLIES,INCLUSION OF LABOUR REPRESENTATIVE IN THE PAY COMMISSION AND OTHER DEMANDS IN THE 15 POINT CHARTER OF DEMANDs.

CONDUCT INTENSIVE CAMPAIGN AND MAKE THE 4TH APRIL NAGPUR NATIONAL CONVENTION A GRAND SUCCESS

Dear Comrades,

The Union Cabinet approved the Finance Ministry’s proposal on terms of reference of the 7thCPC.  We have placed the full text of the same on our website.  None of the suggestions made by the Staff Side was accepted by the Government. 

However, our concern over the date of effect seems to have been taken note of.  The terms of reference has left the effective date of its recommendations to be decided by the Commission itself.  A united stand backed up by struggles will enable us to clinch this demand in our favour.  Undoubtedly it has been our endeavours and the two days strike action that has compelled the Government to have a rethinking on their earlier stand of Decennial (Ten years} wage revision for Central Government employees and the date of effect as 1/1/2016

Unlike on the earlier occasion, the Government has not decided to grant Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance.  Nor has it asked the Commission to consider and make appropriate recommendation in this regard specifically.  As pointed out in our earlier communication, inclusion of a labour representative in the Commission being not an idea the UPA Government cherishes, for it is diametrically opposite to its economic policies and ideology, they have stuck to the position of sandwiching the Honourable Judge with bureaucrats.  In the light of the agreement penned by Com. Mahadeviah, the General Secretary of the recognised GDS union with the Postal Board to the effect that a separate one man committee will look into the service conditions of the Grameen Dak Sewaks, it is not surprising that the Government chose to ignore our demand to cover them within the ambit of the 7th CPC.   Our demands for parity between the past and present pensioners and scrapping of the new pension scheme also stand rejected. 

As you are aware, the 6th CPC (and the earlier Commissions also) had refused to entertain the demand for removal of anomalies despite Government referring the same to the Commission specifically.  Therefore, the omnibus clause in the terms of reference requiring the Commission to submit interim reports may not be of any help to us to raise the anomalies before the 7th CPC.

At the conclusion of the meeting held on 24/10/2013 by Secretary, DoPT, with the staff side on terms of reference of the 7th CPC, it was agreed that the Government will consider our suggestion in the matter and will convene another meeting with the presence of Secretary (Expenditure) to iron out the differences, if any, and explore the possibilities of an agreement in the matter. But no such meeting was convened and no attempt was made by the official side to arrive at an agreed Terms of Reference.

We must now react to the arbitrary and unilateral decision of the Government.  We appeal all the State Secretaries, District Secretaries and Branch Secretaries of the affiliated organisations and the State/District COCs to immediately send the following Savingram to the Prime Minister.

THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES WORKING IN THE    ..........................................(NAME OF THE STATION)/ OFFICE OF...........................CONDEMN THE ATTITUDE OF THE GOVERNMENT IN NOT HONOURING ITS COMMITMENT OF HOLDING DISUCSSION WITH THE STAFF SIDE JCM NATIONAL COUNCIL BEFORE FINALISING THE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF THE 7TH CPC AND DEMAND IMMEIDATE ACCEPTANCE OF :
 (i)            Interim Relief
(ii)          Merger of DA
(iii)         Bringing the Grameen Dak Sewaks within the ambit of the 7th CPC
(iv)         Date of effect from 1/1/2014
(v)          Parity in pension entitlement between the past and present pensioners
(vi)         Coverage of the existing defined benefit pension scheme to employees recruited on or after 1.1.2004. Include a representative of the Labour in the 7th Central Pay Commission.
(viii)     Settle the anomalies raised in the National Anomaly Committee

While the National Convention scheduled to be held at Nagpur will chalk out detailed and phased programmes of action, we call upon our State Committees and Affiliated Unions to organise massive demonstration in front of all offices and important centres on 7th  March, 2014 (Friday) or any other immediate convenient date. Kindly instruct all the Branches to mobilise their members so that the demonstration has the participation of cent per cent of the membership of the concerned branch.  The State Units and affiliated Unions may issue pamphlets and posters and ensure its wide circulation throughout the country.

As already declared by the National Secretariat of the Confederation, we shall have to go for an indefinite strike action immediately after the General Election if our demands are to be settled.

With Greetings,
Yours fraternally,
M. KRISHNAN.

Secretary General.
