2nd SEP 2016 – ALL INDIA GENERAL STRIKE

with 0 Comment
2nd SEP 2016 – ALL INDIA GENERAL STRIKE

The Joint platform of Central Trade Unions (CTUs) of the Country along with Independent National Federations of employees of different industries and services including Confederation of Central Govt. Employees and Workers, have decided to organize All India General Strike on 2nd September 2016, against the anti-people, anti-workers policies and authoritarian attitude of the NDA Government. Intensive campaign and preparation to make the general strike a resounding historical success is going on in full swing throughout the country. The attitude of the NDA Government is profoundly negative and hugely challenging to the working class including Central Govt. employees. The issues in the Charter of demands submitted by the Trade Unions to the Govt. relate to basic interest of the country’s economy and also issues concerning the livelihood of the working people of both organized and unorganized sectors.

Govt. has not taken any meaningful step to curb price rise of essential commodities and to generate employment except making tall baseless claims. Govt. is mysteriously silent on the question of retrieving the black money stashed abroad and recovering lakhs of crores of rupees of bad debts of public sector banks. Whole range of social security measures are under severe attacks including the pension of post — 2004 entrants in Central Govt. Services. Govt. has launched atrocious attack of drastic cut in interest on small savings deposits. Totally ignoring the united opposition of the working class, the Govt. has been moving fast to demolish existing labour laws thereby empowering the employers with unfettered rights to “hire and fire” and stripping the workers and trade union of all their rights and protection provided in laws. Along With the peasantry and agri- labourers are also under severe attack. Attack on public sector has been pushed to unprecedented height with Govt. announcing mega strategic sale and also allowing unlimited FDI in strategic sectors like Railways, Defence and financial Sector as complimentary to the move of privatization and Public Private partnership etc. The anti-worker and authoritarian attitude of the Government is also nakedely reflected in their refusal to implement the consensus recommendations of 43rd, 44th and 45th Indian Labour Conference for formulations of minimum wages, equal wage and benefits of regular workers to the Contract workers.

The neo-liberal economic policies pursued by the Govt. has landed the entire national economy in distress and decline affecting the working people the most.

Central Govt. Employees worst affected:

The policy offensives of the Govt. like downsizing, outsourcing, contractorisation, corporatization and privatization has affected the Central Govt. departments and employees in a worst manner. Ban on creation of new posts and non-filling up of about six lakhs vacant posts had increased the work load of the existing employees and adversely affected the efficiency of the services. The New Pension Scheme (NPS) implemented with affect from 01.01.2004, is nothing but a “No Pension Scheme”, as it is fully dependent on the vagaries of share market forces. The Govt. is not ready to grant civil servant status to Gramin Dak Sevaks and to regularize the services of causal, contingent and contract workers. The 5% ceiling on compassionate appointment is not yet removed. The bonus ceiling enhancement from Rs.3500/- to Rs. 7000/- is not made applicable to Central Govt. Employees. Govt. is not ready to modify the 7th CPC recommendations, which is worst ever made by any pay commissions. The assurance given to the staff side regarding enhancement minimum pay and fitment formula is yet to be implemented. All other retrograde recommendations like reduction in the percentage of HRA, abolition of 52 allowances etc. are yet to be modified. Overall the attitude of the Modi Govt. is totally negative towards the Central Govt. employees and pensioners. The National Secretariat is of the firm opinion that unless the policy of the Govt. is changed, more attacks are likely to come on the Central Govt. employees and working class. To change the policy the united struggle of entire working class is required. It is in this background the Confederation of Central Govt. employees and workers has decided to join the General Strike along with other sections of the working class of our country.

The Confederation National Secretariat calls upon the entirety of Central Govt. employees to make intensive campaign and preparation for making the 2nd September 2016 strike a grand success. Along with the 12 Point charter of demands of the working class, the Confederation has decided to submit the demands pertaining to the Central Govt. employees also as Part-B of the Charter of demands to the Govt. The Chater of demands (Part A and B) is furnished below:

There is wide Gap in 7th CPC Pay Matrix between erstwhile PB3 and PB4 Grades

with 1 comment
There is wide Gap in 7th CPC Pay Matrix between erstwhile PB3 and PB4 Grades

Shri. V.Loganathan has been writing constructive feedbacks on many articles published in gservants.com. The following article clearly shows that in 7th CPC Pay Matrix,there is a wide gap between PB-3 and PB-4 Grades. Since the higher Grades in PB-3 are holding Administrative responsibilities, it must addressed in a way that they should not feel aggrieved. The article written by V.Loganathan is given below..

“……As per Pay Matrix approved in the 7th Pay Commission, there is wide gap between erstwhile PB3 & PB4 Pay Bands. The following statement will speak for itself the wide gap between these two Pay Band Posts entry Level Pay from 1-1-2016:

Pay Band 15600-39100: – (PB3) Group-A

i)G.P. 5400/- Entry Pay .. 56,100
ii)G.P.6600/- .. .. 67,700
iii)G.P.7600 .. .. 78,800

Pay Band 37,400-67,000 – (PB4)

i) G.P.8700/- Entry Pay .. 1,18,500
ii) G.P.8900/- .. .. 1,31,000
iii) G.P.10000/- .. .. 1,44,200

If we look at the entry pay of PB3 under (iii) category entry Pay is fixed at 78,800/- and the entry pay of PB under (i) is at Rs.1,18,000/-

If a person in erstwhile PB3 under (iii) & PB4 under (i), the difference in Entry Pay will be about Rs.40,000/- This anomaly should be rectified from 1-1-2006 by Matrix formula and the entry pay of Pay Band 3 (Group-A Services) should be revised accordingly from 1-1-2016.

Length of Service to be taken into account in Pay Matrix

The picture of fair salary would be incomplete without taking length of service in a category/post contribution of his similarly placed fellow colleagues (generalists in Administration other than Scientists) at next level of hierarchy into account and their fitment table should also be increased proportionately to a fair level .

After all it’s a team management/work disparity, skills, individual and collective performance and adequate internal communication and collective bargaining on salary issues. When many are paid very lesser pay & perks, they have a tendency to work with heart-burning.

Anomaly Committee should Increase the Entry Pay Proportionately

The Anomaly Committee on 7th Pay Panel must consider this suggestion to revise the gap proportionately / uniformly to all categories of posts in (Group-A Services) PB3 & PB4 Pay Bands from 1-1-2006 by applying Matrix formula and revised Entry Pay to these categories of posts should be approved from 1-1-2016 proportionately.

The following statement as per Fitment Table reveal the wide gap between PB3 & PB4 from 1-1-2006 itself as approved in VI Pay Commission

Rs. 15,200 (S-19) ————– Rs.34,880 + increased GP
Rs. 15,000 (S-20) ————– Rs.35,550 + increased GP
Rs. 15,100 (S-24) ————– Rs.47,230 + increased GP
Rs. 15,100 (S-25) ————– Rs.48,390 + increased GP
Rs. 15,200 (S-28) ————– Rs.48,530 + increased GP

If you look at the above statement for a pre-revised basic pay in the pay range of Rs.15,000/- there is wide difference in the revised pay fitment. The gap should be reduced drastically from 1-1-2006 based on length of service one put in a category etc.

In many cases. Senior Officers put in more than 30 years of Service getting less emoluments/Pension when compared to many junior Officers after implementation of Sixth Pay Panel Report from 1-1-2006. The suggestion to Govt. is that length of Service in a category coupled with duties & responsibilities should be given its due weight-age to relieve heart-burning among Senior Officers of Non-IAS cadre and similarly placed Officers in other Ministries. In many cases the increase in emoluments ranging about more than 100% to 300% in PB 3 & PB 4 posts. Due weightage should be given to PB 3 category (Group-A) with effect from 1-1-2006 by applying Matrix formula..”
