(Also G.S./Canara Bank Officers Association)
Has resigned from negotiating committee on wage revision,
to show his dissatisfaction ,over the way the strike was cancelled.
He has confirmed the news in his FB page.
I have seen many reactions from our members and well wishers about my decision of keeping my self away from the AIBOC NEGOTIATING TEAM.
Believe me friends, I have not done so to project me a martyr or a rebel, but, it is the time to ventilate my feelings.
Canara bank officers' Association members who are regularly reading my letters must be knowing that I am constantly and continuously preaching following points for the last three years…….
Fortunately the offices were recruited in big number from 2009 and I have been mentioning in various letters that it is primarily the responsibility of IBA and the Govt. to recruit and retain the INDIAN YOUTHS in the banking industry for which an attractive remuneration to be paid otherwise the industry will come to a grinding halt.
But despite our best efforts, it was not appearing that the IBA and GOVT understood that it was their responsibility basically to recruit competent officers and be retained by paying attractive remuneration.
Today about 40 to 60 % of the officers are recruited after 2009 in various banks, balance about 25% will be retiring in another 3 years and will be filled either by the officers recruited from now on or by promoting from out of the employees recruited after 2009.
However, in the Industry, in another three years, 75% of the officers will be in the age group below 35 years and they are going to hold the position of Scale I, II and III with less exposure in banking………...
With the outsourcing of maintenance and computerisation the number of sub staff and PTEs will be reduced in banks and thus the strength of officers will be equal to employees in the banking sector.
When the number of officers are increasing, the role and responsibility of the officers Organisation also have to be improved.
Thus it is the primary responsibility of IBA and a catalytic role of officers organisations to create conducive, comfortable, comparable and secured Woking condition for the work force in the future banks so as to attract the intellectual Indian youths to be recruited and retained in the industry.
Let us be transparent and gain the courage to tell the cadres on the settlement and we need not hesitate to share the information with the members rather than increasing hype which is the primitive style……
I always believe that agitations and strikes are to attract the attention of the Masters towards the issues and not to damage the industry and institution.
Similarly, my resignation from the AIBOC negotiating team is to draw the attention of the leaders to the issues and expecting cadres and not to become MARTYR or to weaken the movement.
Thanks for the support.
