Outcome of conciliation meeting dt.06.02.2014:


UFBU’ Circular No. 18 dt. 6-2-2014 :

** TODAY’S CONCILIATION MEETING INCONCLUSIVE 
** STRIKE STANDS 
*** OBSERVE 48 HOURS STRIKE ON 10TH  AND 11TH FEBRUARY 2014

Subsequent to the call for 2 days’ All India Bank Strike on 10th and                     11th February 2014, the Conciliation Proceedings were held today before                Shri B.K. Sanwariya, Chief Labour Commissioner (Central) at New Delhi.  IBA was represented by Shri M.V. Tanksale, Chief Executive, Shri K. Unnikrishnan, Dy. Chief Executive.  The meeting was also attended by the officials from Department of Financial Services, Government of India.  From the UFBU side, the leaders of all constituent unions were present.

We reproduce the Minutes of Conciliation Proceedings held today at New Delhi, for the information of members.


“The representatives of the Indian Bank’s Association (IBA) submitted written comments.  A copy of the same was given to the representatives of United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU).  Prolonged discussions were held on the points submitted by the parties.

The representatives of the Indian Bank’s Association (IBA) stated that negotiating committee convened meeting on 17.01.2014 with the representatives of UFBU.  IBA enhanced the offer from 5% on salary slip to 9.5% on the salary slip.  Again meeting was held on 27.01.2014 with the representatives of UFBU and an improved offer of 10% was made.  Representatives of the IBA requested that the next meeting with the representatives of UFBU can be made on 13.02.2014 and UFBU should not go on strike on 10th & 11th February 2014 but the demand for further increase beyond 10% can be settled during ensuing Bi-lateral meetings.

CLC(C) welcomed the views of the IBA and requested the representatives of UFBU to accept the offer for bilateral meetings.  CLC(C) also requested the representatives of IBA to arrange the bilateral meeting before 10th & 11th February 2014.

CLC(C) further made appeal to the representatives of UFBU to withdraw the proposed strike call on 10th & 11th February 2014 and should come forward for bilateral meeting as proposed by the representatives of IBA.

The representatives of UFBU stated that 10% increase offered by the IBA is not acceptable and there should be further forward improvement in the offer, then only UFBU may reconsider the deferment of the proposed strike call.”

Inasmuch as the Conciliation Proceedings remained inconclusive, the       2 days’ All India Bank Strike on 10th & 11th February 2014 stands.

Comrades – Implement the strike action programmes in full with absolute display of solidarity and strength and make the 2 days’ All India Bank Strike on the 10th & 11th February 2014, a grand success.

Convener

WHAT ELSE ONE SHOULD EXPECT FROM A FIXED MATCH.

ANY WAY THE SAVINGS BY STRIKE WOULD BE 600 CRORES APPROX AND IBA CAN EASILY IMPROVE THE OFFER BY ANOTHER 2% I.E. 600 CRORES OF 3000 CRORES EARLIER OFFER

LONG LIVE FIXED MATCHES

The IBA (Govt) is having a hidden agenda behind all these happenings so far (ie. Merger of Banks). Already the banks are recruiting staff at a very low rate as against their huge requirments.Byy giving nominal increase in wages, the IBA is hoping to reduce the man power in the banks. These factors will definitely pay dividends to merge the banks as planned by them earlier. It is better for the bankmen that the UFBU leaders should at once awake and issue INDEFINITE STRIKE NOTICE IN THE FIRST WEEK OF MARCH 2014 to IBA/Govt with a condition that the strike will be called off / deferred IF IBA AGREES FOR A MINIMUM OF 30% INCREASE IN WAGES + 5 DAYS WEEK.

Dear Sir,
this is the urgent need of the our that we should be given the cpc settlement instead of fighting for our wages which we are being deprived by iba. pls sir go for hunger and infinite strike until we are given par with central govt employees in term of wage. its the need of hour that salary should be increase so that no fraud would be committed by the bankers.. there is growing concern obout rising in npa's all coz of fraud and unneccesary funding of loans. iam new to bank but dont want the banks to be diminising in future. hope for its development and betterment in quality of service it renders to the country and its citizens for the economic development. sorry if i have said a bit

Why cant they see this.
We are not asking for much...just what ther are giving to the govt employees.Why this discrimination.?why?

Its a very tragic scenario.we are feeling like helpless labourers. If this scenario persists then the psu banks will be history. Bank was and is a white collor job but given these circumstances people will migrate to other jobs. So it should be made a wake up call for the governance. Please dont indulge politics in banking.
Only governance will be responsible for the damaged cause.

Boycot collection of taxes marched and teach a lesson to finance minister and boycot congress and teach them too

Abhinav Pratap Singh said...

Friends I think we are also responsible for our this condition because we don't have that unity that other govt & PSU have, I give you very simple example many of us are on either CP/PL on 10 & 11 & others are planning for outing & household chores, no one is interested in practicing in demonstration. Then how can we expect govt to give the same worth to bankers that they are giving to central govt. employees.

I appeal to all comrades to participate in demonstration, its not about 20 or 30 % rise its to show govt still today PSBs are backbone of our economy to prove the actual worth bankers.

A basic difference between revision of pay in banks and government. To justify the salary bankers must work in and out, day and night and expected to ignore their personal life, their families,work as bonded labour at meagre wages, face undue pressures etc for performing the economic and social functions so that banks are in profits for which managements hesitate to give their people a respectful living but ensure to pass on dividends and taxes to government. But the government funcion is not to earn profits but social only. So Just impose a new tax or increase the tax rate and the rest will be taken care of automatically.
This is the beauty of things.
Time to how unity and ensure leaders reflect the general consensus of our people.

Sir

Two suggestions be added

(1) Transfer policy - In every Zonal Office/Circle Office/HRD , a database containing five preferred/nearest branch of all employees are to be maintained (excel / MS access), to enable authorities for deciding appointment/transfers of employees/officers on promotion/tenure completion so as he can lead a social life as well.

(2). To enforce above , a token money of ONE PAISA allowance be implemented. In which employee/officer be paid one paisa per ten kilometer by scaling the distance from his preferred/nearest/home town branch to the actual appointed/posting station. Accountability of this token/symbolic allowance will eliminate/reduce the casual /ignoring attitude of all HRD authorities at various hierarchical levels.

1.In banking industry, 6 days week is their.
2. collection of taxes.
3. always pressure because of targets.
4. Less salary and position in India 230th.
4. Higher executive behave just like Englishmen if they see a manager, start to scold
5 overall position of the banker is very poor.

who is responsible for this, our unity, we have to go for indefinite strike and come back only after getting the results

Govt. surviving on taxes, dividends from banks and other such departments can implement 6th pay commission and pay decent salaries to its employees, who in addition also thrive on corruption. Reserve Bank is also not an exception. But Banks which earn income and pay it to govt. cannot pay decent salaries to its employees. What an irony. Let IBA and Govt. of India pay the Public Sector Banks at the same level as RBI pays to its staff. Is the Govt. and IBA ready to accept the challenge.

Radhakrishnan Subramanian said...

To cut short the issues involve I pose a challenge to IBA and the Finance Ministry:

WILL THEY AGREE TO IMPLEMENT THE WAGE PATTERN IN TOTALITY AS IS PREVAILING IN RBI WITH OUT ANY MODIFICATION. IF THEY HAVE GUTS LET THEM ACCEPT IT.
