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. 

Further, on our taking up the matter with the Government and IBA, it is learnt that there is no such move from either of them.  Obviously it is the handiwork of some mischievous individuals who have been calculatedly sowing the seeds of frustration in the minds of employees. 

Right to collective bargaining and bilateralism have been the precious achievement of bank employees movement and secured through innumerable struggles. ...........

.............The superiority of collective bargaining and bipartite settlement has to be understood in the background of the denial of justice at the hands of the successive Tribunals and Awards like Sen Award, Sastri Award, Desai Award to which the demands of the bank employees were referred to in those days of 1940s to 1966.

Especially, the bitterness of the experience with results of the Awards made bank employees to realise that the system of third party adjudication should be stopped and era of collective bargaining and bilateralism should be achieved.
 
Under the Pay Commission, there is no scope to argue, discuss or negotiate our demands.  We can only petition and represent.  That is why the achievement of the bipartite system to settle our demands through direct negotiations has been a very significant forward movement.   We have to preserve this right to collective bargaining and take it forward.

Bipartite Wage Settlements in the banking industry have been the path-finders since our Settlements have always opened the door for settlement in other institutions in the financial sector like LIC, GIC, RBI, etc. etc. 

Today there are voices heard here and there that third party adjudication or Pay Commission would benefit the employees.  It should be our endeavour to explain the details to those who have no idea of the past bitter experiences and who are sought to be misled through misinformation. 
Particularly, the young employees who only see the comparison of emoluments have to be explained properly and patiently about the implications of Pay Commission.

It is equally important to identify and unmask the desperate elements who are out to feed poison and venom in the minds of young employees who are justifiably in search of answers to their genuine aspirations.
The need of the hour is to instil faith in collective bargaining and trade unions and not inflict despair in their minds. 
Our duty is to convince them and not confuse them.  

Fighting to preserve the right to collective bargaining and continuation of bipartism is as important as our fight for better wages

As far as AIBEA is concerned, any attempt to meddle with it would be fought back.

1.Under the Pay Commission, there is no scope to argue, discuss or negotiate our demands. We can only petition and represent.
You don't want Pay commission, then what you achieved with BiParty from all previous settlements except reducing bankers value and salary in every settlement because of only your inefficency.
2. You (UFBU) please tell me which BiParty settlement is completed in due date, why you people are dragging every settlement for 2 to 3 years.Is it not for levy amount?
3. Even after 2 years waiting, how much hike we are getting?
4.What you UFBU is doing when deadlock occures at 11% and IBA is never cares your actions,you should be shame and resign your positions if you are unable to tackle IBA.
5.why don't you ask IBA people about their salary in 2007 and in 2014, and what percentage of hike they got form hard earned money of Bankers. IBA negotiating committee should get upto 50% hike from 2007 to 2014, but they offer 5% to bankers. Don't you have guts to ask them.
6. Coming to previous settlement, who is responsible for withdrawing of indefinite strike in last minute.Please put some light on those dark room settlements between IBA and UFBU.
7. What is package of CMDs of all public sector banks in 2007 and in 2014. How much % hike every year they are earning? But they are not ready to give same % to bankers.

I am not asking to irritate you so called great union leaders.But I want to show my anger in these delayed settlement.
The great Venkatachalam is giving warning to their union members by enjoying their subscription.(I am sorry if any one huts).

Reality is you UFBU leaders have sold your blood and soul completely, you guys are shameless creatures because of your selfishness and impotency today we have lowest salary in banking sector and still you guys are thinking about your benefits. We can fight for our rights and in pay commission we can not obviously they will not fight they already have better salary they have more benefits they have 5 day working, they are coming under gadget why they will fight. You blood sucker morons don't even know what are the basic issue why you should fight, you are just trying o convince youngsters to save your ego and air puffed attitude so that you can enjoy survive on our subscription and levy so that you can save your salary completely and if some one will raise his or her voice you will transfer them or not let them promote. You are targeting youngsters particularly so that their age will pass they will not be able to apply anywhere else. WE WANT PAY COMMISSION WE WANT PAY COMMISSION

Neeraj said...

Very well written sir...DO UFBU HAVE ANY ANSWER FOR THIS?
WE WANT PAY COMMISSION !!!!!

From Young Officers ,,,,,,,,,,,


We want pay commission only and not bi-partite settlement. we also want five days working and regulated working hours in banks. If you are not able to achieve these demands , your in-action in the matter will force all young officers to leave your union immedialty. If you want to call for strike, call it on 3rd & 5th of November 2014 so that it is felt by the management.

Colleagues pl do not go on strike for bipertite settlement on 12/11/14.Go on indefinite strike for pay commission which will only be our future in bank otherwise after 10 yrs bank officer salary will be less than peon of central government

First of all tell us why you have submitted your charter after wage revision became due and why have you not started negotiation well before it became due ? It is unions who have delayed in submitting their charter of demands. Next pay commission already commenced its work. At least we will get timely revision of pay in the next revision.

If bankers are included in pay commission, how these beggers (union leaders) will survive? They are more concerned with their commission which they will get from IBA ....

Pay commission is 100 % better than useless bi partite settlement. Atleast we will be able to get pay parity with Group B Gazetted officers. At present under this useless and waste Bi-partite settlement even this is not possible. Can anybody tell what the union leaders have done till now except eating lolli pops given by IBA to them in 5 star hotels.

Why not pay commission ? What was achieved in the Bi-partite settlement ? and why there is provision of leavy?


There is system of Pay Commission in Central Government, who recommend the pay structure after keeping in view of the requirement of living standard of country and requirement of trend man-power in Government. Govt. employee have not to do strike and give levy for the Pay commission recommendation. Still there is honourable salary of govt. employee.
In view of this, Pay Commission is best way to settle the pay parity or pay related issue of bank employee.
It will also end the bullying by Union Leader to AAM Banker.

Again, there is big question that why the retired employee are our union leader and what they do the huge levy collected from us.

WELL SAID. I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU SIR. UFBU SHOULD ANSWER ABOVE QUESTIONS BEFORE ASKING ITS MEMBERS TO GO ON STRIKE. UNIONS/ search ASSOCIATIONS HAVE SINCE LONG BECOME APPENDAGES OF BANK MANAGEMENTS.
