Refer my post “Do not spread rumours!”

All the rumours/news mentioned theirin are proved as fake .
The latest and additional one about “Pay commission“also proved wrong.
I don’t think present day bankers are not so innocent to fall prey to these rumours.
I request the creators of these rumours, please keep away.

On scrutinizing comments in my posts,
We can identify which is genuine concen/comment,
comment out of frustration and which is a comment with hidden agenda.
There are group activities also found with the sole intention of
tarnishing the image of trade unions.

Don’t do harm to trade union activities, if not you could contribute.

I think it is not practically possible for union leaders to visit all FB accounts and blogs and read thousands of comments posted.
For comrades who post their genuine concerns,
I suggest that,you may write letters to your state units of bankwise unions/associations expressing your views and concerns. This may create pressure on unions to take more serious decisions on struggles.
Posting of comments in social media may be an outlet for your frustration, but your direct participation only can make changes.
The only rumour left out to be proved is
“One unions is ready to sign for 13.5-14%”

UFBU’S Strike programme:

A one day strike on 12.11.2014 is announced.
Great disappointment!
Selection of date is frustrating!

Regarding second part of strike.i.e., relay strike in different dates
in different regions:
It is a new concept and new attempt.
Logic behind may be more disturbance of banking transactions with least
loss to employees. Absence of clearing house operations in different regions will be felt for all 4 days.

AIBEA circular on Pay commission rumours....................

Scotch rumours of referring our demands to Pay Commission
Defend collective bargaining – Defeat third party intervention

For the past few days, there are reports in some of the newspapers that the Government is thinking of referring the wage revision demands of bank employees and officers to the Pay Commission. 

Some of the papers had carried the name of one Mr. Ashwani Rana of NOBW as the source. 
During the UFBU meeting held at Bengaluru on 13-10-2014, the leaders of NOBW reiterated that NOBW stands for bilateral settlement and not for referring the demands to Pay Commission. 

Further, during this meeting, all the constituents of UFBU firmly reiterated their stand in favour of bipartite agreement and against foisting any tribunal or Pay Commission on banking sector.

We have to wait for

a letter by Com. G V Manimaran of Canara Bank Officer Association/AIBOC

I am reproducing a letter by Com. G V Manimaran of Canara Bank Officer Association/AIBOC (too lenghty) for you.

When I reproduced a letter by Com. CHV/AIBEA some comrades branded me as pro AIBEA. When I commented NOBOW' recent decisions , they branded me anti BJP.
When I commented on certain decisions of UFBU youngster though I am against UFBU. 
This time I may branded as AIBOC supporter.

I want to make it clear here, this page is for sharing of all the news related to bank employees, and offering a platform for comrades to post their views and comments.
I have my own views as everyone of you have .

Off late some group of comrades(some are outsiders also) continuoisly posting views against UFBU and try to diverting attention of youngsters towards their agenda. I have no greivances.
After all they are doing the job assigned to them.
Every union will try to increse their membership using every opportunity.

 It is natural. Let us see how far they succeed.

Regarding hew and cry about reports, only in some Hindi news papers, about Pay commision for Bank employees, let us wait and see how the drama ends.

One more thing , I request comrades to post your views in English so that I can understand your views, as also all employees from Kasmir to Kanyakumari understand it.
Even Com. Rana/NOBW posted something in this page in Hindi.
I requested him to post in English. He has not responded.(but he find time to reply for commed in the same post in Hindi again).
I have waited for two days . No reply came. I have deleted the post. What else I can do ? Without knowing the contents how can I allow a post/comment?

Here is the letter by Com. G V Manimaran/CBOA/AIBOC

Letter No: 63 from General Secretary

Dear Friends

I have been closely watching the chatting carried out by some of young brothers expressing their deep anguish on wage revision in what's up for the last two days.

While I wholeheartedly endorse the view of the youngsters that we are the lowly paid in the industry and we are deserving for a decent hike in emoluments, I could not appreciate their understanding on the trade union and its policies. I am unable to support their action of using abusive language on the tall leaders who are leading the organisation.
