Sub: Outcome of the discussions held in the OFB JCM III Level meeting (11th Term) held on 18/09/2013 at OFB HQrs – Details.

Dear Colleague,
Ordnance Factory Board JCM III Level Council 14th Steering Committee meeting (11th Term) held on 18/09/2013 at OFB Hqrs.  On 19/09/2013 a meeting on membership verification and sub-committee meeting on Rationalisation of Industrial Trades and on 20/09/2013 a meeting on improving the facilities at OFILs and Factory Training Schools were held.  Important issues were discussed and the outcome of the same is given below for your information which may be communicated to your union and members.
1. PIECEWORK CORRELATION ON 6th CPC
The proposal for correlating on Rs.5200/- Pay Band and Rs.1900/- Grade Pay for all grades of Industrial Employees working on Piece Work was finally proposed and the same was re-submitted to Ministry of Defence and proposed to implement w.e.f. 01.01.2006 retrospectively.

2.  III MACP TO MCM
Granting of III MACP and allowing Rs.4600/- Grade Pay is being proposed to reduce to Rs.4200/- Grade Pay with one increment @ 3%.  All out efforts from Indian National Defence Workers Federation (INDWF), OFB and M of D were taken, and DOP&T also favourably recommended to Ministry of Finance for their approval, since the matter is forwarded favourable by M of D and DOP&T to grant Rs.4600/- Grade Pay to MCM, it was requested to OFB and PC of A (Fys) to keep the action pending to revert from Rs.4600/- Grade Pay to Rs.4200/- Grade Pay to the serving employees as the proposal is likely to be decided in our favour.  Also we have quoted that the CAT, Chandigarh and CAT, Kolkatta issued stay orders against the recovery.  Member (Pers) said that a DO with the approval of Chairman, OFB was sent to Member/Finance and PC of A (Fys) to keep the action pending.  This was agreed by the representative of PC of A (Fys) to consider the proposal for not effecting the reversion and recovery.

We have also mentioned that the action taken by the Local Accounts Officers reverting to Rs.4200/- Grade Pay is not as per Rules.  Any reversion should be made with due notice of show cause and after obtaining the reply this should be considered.  Without show cause notice action taken to revert them is totally against the statutory provisions of the payment of wages act.  This was agreed by the representative of PC of A (Fys) and the proposed action for reversion will be kept in abeyance.

3.  CADRE REVIEW PROPOSALSClerical Cadre Review was cleared.
Supervisors Cadre Review was cleared.
The following proposals of cadre Review are pending with DOP&T

Piece Workers while on Working Holidays and Sundays they are denied single rate Overtime Allowance and they are only paid piece work but day workers are paid single rate Overtime, therefore the Piece workers are getting lesser pay than Day workers and Non-Industrial Employees.  This should be revised to make Piece workers paid equal at par with Day workers to motivate Piece workers while working on Holidays and Sundays.
