AIBEA  CIRCULAR No.27/75/2014/31DT.18th September, 2014
Says ……

During the UFBU meeting, from AIBEA we have explained our position in terms of our General Council meeting decision that the settlement should be expedited and UFBU should adopt a practical approach to arrive at a mutually acceptable wage revision and keeping in mind all other demands raised by the Unions.  IBA informed that the next round of meeting will be held within a week.  We will take stock of the developments during further negotiations and take suitable decision to achieve our long pending wage revision settlement.

UFBU CIRCULAR 2014/28 DT.17.09.2014  Says
…………. Compassionate Appointment Scheme:
While thanking the IBA for its efforts and being instrumental in getting clearance of the Government for introduction of Compassionate Appointment Scheme on the lines available to Central Government employees, UFBU sought clarifications on issues like eligibility, applicability with regard to death cases prior to 05.08.2014, etc., to which IBA conveyed that the matter would be referred to Government and necessary clarifications will be issued on receipt of their advices;

*Accounts to be opened under Jan Dhan Yojana:
While appreciating and extending the support of UFBU to the initiatives taken by the Government towards extension of banking facility to all the people in the Country, UFBU expressed the following apprehensions:
*The compromises on KYC norms may lead to opening of fraudulent accounts for which employees should not be held accountable;
*The pressure due to the targets stipulated for opening of accounts are greatly affecting the regular banking activities and services to existing customers;
*Due to the stipulation on timings for opening of accounts from 8.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m., employees are forced to work beyond their working hours and are also under severe stress to achieve the stipulated target.
During the negotiations, IBA informed that the UFBU's demand of 25% increase in pay slip components is on high side and beyond the paying capacity of banks and insisted that UFBU should review its demand, to which UFBU responded as under:
*IBA should substantially revise its offer of increase in pay slip components;
*The other important issues like regulated working hours, 5-day banking, improvements in pension related matters, etc. should be discussed simultaneously and in a time-bound manner;
*The meetings on negotiation have to be held regularly at frequent intervals ensuring expeditious settlement;
*UFBU will have flexibility in its demand depending upon the response of IBA on all the above matters.
IBA assured us to schedule the next round of meeting within one week to discuss comprehensively on all the issues.  Comrades - every effort is being made by UFBU not only for expeditious conclusion but also for a respectable Tenth Bipartite Wage Settlement.  Let us continue to maintain our unity which would strengthen us in achieving our goals.  Further developments will be advised in due course.
M.V. MURAI
CONVENOR

read the following circular by NUBU which is not a constituent of UFBU but is a negotiating union:

NATIONAL UNION OF BANK EMPLOYEES
(Regd No.3415 / CNI dated 29-07-2011)
Administrative Office: 763, Anna Salai, Chennai – 600 002.
CIRCULAR NO.06 / 2014 DATE : 17-09-2014

Dear Comrades,

MEETING WITH IBA ON WAGE REVISION TALKS

Today (17/09/2014) yet another meeting of the negotiating committee for 10th Bipartite Wage Revision took place in Mumbai, the undersigned on behalf of NUBE took part in the negotiations along with ten other unions.

 Mr.T.M.Bhasin the newly elected Chairman of IBA in his initial remark gave a brief of the present banking scenario and also explained in detail about the importance of banks’ profitability and paying capacity.

Mr. Rajiv Rishi, the new Chairman of the Negotiating Committee followed it by telling that it would not be possible for IBA to agree to the demands of the Unions for a hike of 25% since the banks were not doing well and the results of the first quarter were not rosy. Further he insisted that other issues should be discussed first and then we decide on the wage factor.

NUBE strongly objected to the stand of IBA and said that postponing a cardinal issue like wage load and discussing on other issues which can be settled simultaneously is nothing but dilly dallying.

Already nearly 8.5 lac Bank men are anxiously waiting for approximately two years patiently and their patience cannot be further tested. The Chairman negotiating committee wanted the unions to reduce their demand of 25% to which some unions agreed provided IBA also raises their offer.

IBA has not offered anything beyond 11% and the meeting concluded with a understanding that we will meet shortly. The way the talks are proceeding, we do not think that there would be any progress in the days to come.

Comrades from the above it is very clear that IBA is in no mood to settle the issue amicably. Their stubbornness is only making the Bank employees restless and paving a path for agitational programmes which is not good for the Industry.

However, we are left with no other alternative than to struggle if not we will be meekly surrendering to the dictates of IBA and history will not pardon us. So let us march ahead and struggle unitedly.

Yours Comradely,

(L.BALASUBRAMANIAN)
GENERAL SECRETARY
NUBE

Instead of begging for decent sal hike, which we will not get, union leaders should ask atleast for BPL CARD for young bankers to atleast survive and serve the great nation day n night wholeheartly

If IBA is adamant why are the UBFU leaders going to the tea party. Why a strong and firm stand be taken by the union leaders, what are they waiting for. Nothing less than 20% should be accepted. Why profitability clause for banks, how about burden of Govt. employees wages. Do they earn profits? How about expenses of the political class? Banks atleast earn something. Are NPAs not a result of Govt. policies. How about loan waivers? Unions must bring their strength to the fore, to get best deal for the bank staff.

2 saal baad ye haal hai,,, means finance ministry and honorable p m ke words bhi secondary. I request UFBU to write a letter to pm with immediate effect. Whose n why iba and for what they exist s. 50% demand karo ufbu n stick on the demand else strike karo. Pls

UFBU is making fool of Bankers. They could not simply tell the IBA that Qty Results are bad because of economic condition and huge NPA for which we AAM bankers are not responsible. Only solution is MASS RESIGNATION from our respective unions on any PRE DECIDED DATE by all AAM Bankers.

Demnd for pay commn, no ufbu and iba, no ullu banawing but pay commisioning only

I think the only option left for Bank employees to make the authority listen is continous strike for at least 2 days. In a scenario where inflation is skyrocketing they are offering a meagre 11%. Even the government finance are not in good condition even then government employees are being paid 40% more than bank employees. Not at all justified....

Best of Luck for next tea party. The party will continue to organised till next 3 years (11th B.P.S) or upto the date on which you union leaders retire whichever is earlier.

Thanks for informing us for next Tea Party.

One does not need two years to say banks profitablity is on the downside.Banks profits are simply looted by politicians in various forms.They themselves and their dear ones take loan not to repay. Waivers.NPAS.Bankers hands tied not to initiate action lest they will not be promoted or face transfers to waterless jungles. Indefinite strike is the only answer

Common comrades lets start a campain for mass resign or long leave, including all BM and staffs, start a campain see how we unite together..

IBA is adamant, strike is the only solution.token strike for 1 or 2 days are not sufficient.it should be minimum 5 days .

IBA IS VERY ADAMENT SINCE MANY DECADES AND IT IS THE UNITED ACTION BY OFFICERS AND CLERKS WHICH LEAD THE FRUITFUL SALARY IN THE OLDEN DAYS. NOW IBA IS PLAYING GAME WITH THE LIFES OF BANKERS. BASTERD CHIDAMBARAM HAD SPOILED THE CLEAN ATMOSPHERE AND HE IS CURSED BY THE OLD AGE PENSIONERS.THE IMMEDIATE ACTION IN THE FORM OF 6 DAYS STRIKE FOR SEPTEMBER END WILL ONLY SOLVE THE PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY.

IBA is as ever deaf to the genuine demands of ours. But waht is not understable is the approach of the UFBU. Boss why donot we go for strike for a week. Let these unsensible people feel the heat. call the strike till further negotiation.

If not able to make proper wage rise just cancel all Union Memberships.If the union leaders not able to increase 25 % once in 5 years they are waste a full waste. let's all bank employees cancel the Union membershipmembership!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

All Union leaders as well as the negotiating members will only get 25 %wage hike from the govt for doing this kind of settlement to all bank employees. As per I am concerned they will not provide us more than 17%.Its time nw for all bank employees to unite and kick off these Union Leaders who are corrupted.....

Anonymous said...

Ufbu and iba are acting like pure politicians. They think all the fools are working in the banks. We are not beggars. We are demanding much less then what we should get. We are not sending our so called leaders to just listen to those stubborns. By the name of negotiation meet you all are wasting our hard working money and you donot even regret that you failed to meet our expectation. I do not understand why we should negotiate. Nobody can deny that bankers are working almost double to those of govt employees. So as per equal pay for equal work we should get double salary to those of govt employees. Most of the govt. Sectors are in loss and their conditions are pathetic then those of banks. Why the point of profit comes in case of banks only. After the new central govt pay comission the salary of their peon will be much higher then a PO. Tatikh pe tarikh deke bankers ko majhak bana dis gain. Stops ur all nautangis UFBU leaders and decide for a date for mass strike if our demands are not fulfilled. We all will support on this but not to your 17% negotiation agenda

Dear Comrades
Please stop cursing our UNIONS because we will weaken our strength this wrong way. Let's be more united our learned senior members better understand what is position of US and they actually know that what better can be fetched from IBA. THE surprising thing is IBA is behaving more like LALA JI THE DUKANDAR WHO MISTREATS HIS MUNDUS THE POORLY PAID SERVANTS. The IBA IS INDIAN BANKERS ARROGANCE once for all! They are bloody Dushmans and
Just want to Dump us. LetsLet's unite and not untide for their untidy intentions and deeds.
Yours comradely

Yes. Along with a free jopada for living as the rent we pay are on sky. Every one should consider for good hike.

Better start with demands for 11th BPS.IBA and UFBU should be kicked out of the talks for wage revision.They neither present the Govt nor the employees.Both are self serving scums floating on banking industry.Only a Pillai like Committe can improve the lot of bankers.

Anonymous said...

Overheard a discussion that UFBU is already agreed to 13.5% i.e. 1% more than the previous settlement(17.5%- 5% for pension). They have not declared it on 17th due to fear that members will know the setting. They will declare it after some drama to convince members.

We have to go on strike of minimum one week for urging wage revision and weekly 5 days concept

Ravindranath B said...

i am sure the ufbu will once again ditch the bankers. when the fag end of settlement is about to conclude as usual the ufbu started limping and acting as cowards, When they have brave and bold employees and officers behind. come on UFBU wake up and fight for the cause for which you are intended. Bring us a good and decent package.

13.5 is fixed , tarik pe tarik aur chay party chalte rahegi. Lekin isk upar kuch bhi nahi milne wala. Match fixing is there. Jyada increase chahiye to merger k liye agree hona padega aur nahibhi agree huye to bhi merger pakka hai, agree for merger and take 16 to 18%

Do it the hard way i.e Indefinite strike! Let's see who is earning money for the government. The central govt. employees who work 5 days or the bankers who work 7 days.
