AIBEA CC calls for cautious but decisive approach to clinch 10th Bipartite wage revision settlement.
The CC noted that while the present offer of 12.5 % amounted to
Rs. 3940 crores towards Payslip components ( as against Rs. 2980 crores achieved in the 9th BPS ), the same is far from adequate and hence there has to be substantial improvement in the offer of IBA before we could clinch the deal. .....
the CC decided that we have to move cautiously, but act decisively so that no derailment takes place in the negotiations.....
Revised Medical Reimbursement Scheme: In the meeting on reimbursement of medical expenses, it has been agreed to introduce a revised scheme by which employees would get full reimbursement of the medical expenses incurred by them without the existing ceilings, sub-limits and other restrictions which result in employees going out of pocket. The Scheme would incorporate and consist of various improvements also. ........
Discussions on service conditions of workmen employees: In the Sub-Committee meeting held on 19-1-2015, participated by all the 5 workmen unions, all the demands of workmen unions as raised in the common Charter of Demands were taken up for discussion.
There was detailed discussion on issues pertaining to leave benefits of the employees and certain improvements have been agreed upon by IBA.
We are entering the crucial zone – beware of false propaganda: Comrades, while the negotiations have been put on popper track, from now on, the negotiations would be very crucial. While all endeavours would be made by the Negotiating Committee to proceed on the lines of the decisions of our CC meeting to achieve our demands for a fair and adequate wage revision and improvement in other service conditions, it is important that we are fully backed up by total unity of our rank and file membership. Our units and members should also be alert and prepared for any programmes that may be warranted to meet any eventual hurdle in the way of realising our demands. Nothing should be taken for granted at this statge.
Already the market is flooded with rumours, misinformation, false propaganda, canard against leadership – all deliberately targeted against AIBEA. Social media is also being used to denigrate AIBEA and we have located the elements behind the same. But we shall not allow our attention to be diverted to replying to all these engineered and orchestrated attempts. While our units and members should be guarded against the same, such mischievous attempts should be befittingly answered with our dogged unity and unflinching faith on our organisation.
