Indian Bank Kumar
Come out of shadow. Be not afraid.
Reveal your identity and your objective.
Others deserve to know it.
Nothing to hide.
I am also a bank employee like every one of you.
but I am more interested in union activities.
I am not a union leader.
My objective is to pass on all the information
I am reading/receiving( taken from websites of all unions)
and also thro e-mail. .
I am answering doubts/queries raised by comrades
with my little knowledge( read from settlements and various circulars.) and my experience.
I am not posting anything without authencation.
Union websites serve one way communication only.
Comrades wants to express their view on various issues.
Hence I decided to start a platform for two way communication.
That is the birth of Indian Bank Kumar facebook page.
But I feel sorry to read comments from few comrades which are
without reading the history of trade union movement,
without reading circulars,
without attending union meetings,
without attending dharnas/demos,
without knowing Labour laws/provisions
with blind hate on unions,
without giving any concrete alternative/suggestions,
concerning only on salary and not on any other issue.
Just commenting on the spot without applying mind won't serve any purpose.
But I am allowing all the comments.
Some comrades take liberty, and post nasty comments.
That will only show their level of decency to others.
One point I want to tell all comrades is
without union/unity you can't achieve anything.
Like in any other sector, there may be good unionist and bad unionist/leader
in our banking industry also.
To choose right union/leader is in our hands only.
Serving as a union functionery/leader is not so easy
as many of you think.
It needs several sacrifises like denying promotion forever,
ready to travel throughout the state/nation leaving your family,
sacrifies his hard earned leave for others,
(only all India leaders are having minimum spl.leave, but union consists of more than 500 functioneris per bank,)
No sunday belongs to him,
all his time is at the disposal of comrades,
always at target of management,
the list does not end here.
there are many many more qualities like shrewdness, decision taking capacity, negotiating skills,thorough knowledge in labour laws,
thorough knowledge about banking
How many young comrades are ready to accept these challenges?
