Central Trade Unions decides to observe All India Protest Day on 15th March 2018

Central Trade Unions decides to observe All India Protest Day on 15th March 2018

The meeting of the Central Trade Unions held on 22nd February 2018 at INTUC Office New Delhi expressed indignation and strongly condemned the Government of the day for their intensified attack on the lives and livelihood of the people and seriously compromising the national interest.

Attack on working class centering around dismantling labour laws designed to completely casualise employment conditions through various routes like amending Contract Labour Act, introducing Fixed Term Employment etc has assumed aggressive height. Further it is noted that the Government is out to erase the public sector from the industrial map of the country. Specific cases of attack on privatization of railways, opening coal mining to private and foreign companies without any restriction whatsoever, mass scale privatization as well as destruction of defence production network through widespread outsourcing, thereby dismantling the almost half of the ordinance factories are some of the examples of the gross anti-people and anti-national actions of the Govt. Accumulation of huge non-performing assets of the public sector banks arising out of pilferage of bank-funds by deliberately defaulting private corporate coupled with recent explosion of frauds with bank fund engineered by the same corporate class is also a reflection of the anti-national act of the Govt indulging and patronizing the same big-business class.

The Central Trade Unions reiterated their utter condemnation against the Union Budget 2018-19 which is basically anti-worker and anti-people in character and engineered a deception on the mass of the people through loud populist slogans without actually making any resource allocation.

The Central Trade Unions denounced the Govt of India’s surreptitious move in postponing the 47th session of Indian Labour Conference, thereby reducing tripartism to a mockery.

CTUOs noted with satisfaction the surging struggles by the working people in different sectors throughout the country, both organised and unorganized.

The workers and federations of coal and transport have been preparing for united industrywide actions to be undertaken shortly. All the Federations of Defence Production workers have jointly decided to go in for nationwide strike on 15th March 2018. Many more sectoral actions are in the offing.

The CTUOs while reiterating their resolve to intensify preparation for indefinite strike in the days to come, calls upon all their constituents and working people in general irrespective of affiliations to jointly observe

ALL INDIA PROTEST DAY ON 15TH MARCH 2018
· In solidarity with the striking Defence Production workers against anti-national privatization move
· Against the Anti-people Deceptive Union Budget 2018-19.

The CTUOs will meet shortly after 15th March 2018 to decide their next course of united countrywide action.

Filling two million vacancies in various departments

Filling up of vacancies in various Government offices, Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) and other departments is a continuous process.

The vacant posts in Government Ministries/ Departments are required to be filled as per the Recruitment Rules for them.

Recruitment to various posts in Government of India is made through various recruitment agencies constituted for the purpose such as Union Public Service Commission, Staff Selection Commission, etc.
Ministries/Departments and the recruitment agencies have been sensitized to take all the required steps for filling up of the posts within the time line.

Department of Public Enterprises (DPE) is the nodal department for Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs) (excluding Banks and Financial/ Insurance organizations), CPSEs are under the administrative control of their respective Ministry/ Department. The employment in CPSEs depends upon their requirement as per their expansion/ investment plan. Further, CPSEs are having their own policy for recruitment for below the Board level posts under broad guidelines issued by the Government from time to time.

In order to give wider publicity to the notification of vacancies, Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) in November, 2016 decided that advertisement of vacancies shall now be mandatorily placed at the National Career Service (NCS) Portal, developed by Ministry of Labour and Employment. This will be in addition to other procedures as notified earlier.

As per the Annual Report on Pay and Allowances of Central Government Civilian Employees, the number of vacant posts in position in various Ministries/Departments is 4,12,752 out of total sanctioned strength of 36,33,935 as on 01.03.2016.

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Denial of Leave Salary duly reckoning 30% of 7th CPC pay for Running Staff-reg.

The extant instructions provide that the Running Staff are entitled for payment of Leave Salary duly reckoning 30% of pay. It has, however, been represented by our affiliates as well staff that on many Zonal Railways 30% of 7th CPC pay is not being reckoned for the purpose of payment of Leave Salary to the Running Staff. When pointed out, the Zonal Railways stated that Board’s clarification is awaited.

In this connection, NFIR desires to state that Leave Salary is not part of Allowances, therefore, 30% of 7th CPC pay needs to be added to the Basic Pay ior the purpose of payment of
Leave Salary to the Running Staff. In view of confusion prevailing on certain Zonal Railways, the Railway Board may consider issuing suitable clarification for reckoning 30% of 7th CPC pay
for the purpose of payment of Leave Salary.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarificatory instructions as suggested above, duly endorsing copy thereof to the Federation, at the earliest.

Yours faithfully,

The Chairman,

Dear Sir.
Sub: Recruitment of candidates from Open Market in Pay Level-l of 7th CPC against 20% vacancies reserved for Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s instructions contained in RBE No. 71/2016 dated 21/06/2017 & RBE No. 34/2017 dated 12/04/2017.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. II/94/Part I dated 17/07/2017 to Board (CRB).
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)II/2016/RR-1/8 dated 12/08/2017.

Kind attention is invited to the instructions issued by the Railway Board vide RBE No. 71/2016 dated 21/06/2017 and 34/2017 dated 12/04/2017 wherein decision has been taken to reserve 2% vacancies against direct recruitment quota in Pay Level-l of 7th CPC pay matrix from amongst Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways.
In this connection, Federation has come across the Centralized Employment No. CEN 02/2018 (published on 10/02/2018 and Closing date 12/03/2018) wherein the Course Completed Act Apprentice trained in Railway establishments have been allowed to compete along with other outside candidates (Para 12.0 of the notification may be seen) for which respective RRBs have been entrusted the job to recruit the candidates for the Zones to which the requirement is to be catered for. In this connection, Federation conveys that this process is time consuming and the designated RRBs are likely to take more than six months to finalize the panels. The Zonal Railways on receipt of the panels will take further period of about 2-3 months to get the selected and empanelled candidates medically examined for issuing posting orders.

In order to ensure quick availability of candidates, Federation suggests that the quota of 20% vacancies in respect of Railway Act Apprentices may be allowed to be filled by the Zonal Railways directly without linking to RRB/RRC recruitment process.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board (CRB) to kindly arrange to review the matter and see that instructions to the General Managers are issued for inducting Course Completed Act Apprentices to the extant of 20% vacancies in Pay Level-l of 7th CPC Pay Matrix without linking to the recruitment process conducted by RRBs/RRCs.

Federation may kindly be kept advised of the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully,
