Dear Comrades,

PLUNGE INTO MOBILISATION FOR SUCCESSFUL INDEFINITE STRIKE

                        * Confederation to Serve Strike Notice to Cabinet Secretary on 2nd Jan '09

                        * Massive demonstration on 2nd in front of Parliament

                        * HQrs to Serve Strike Notice to CAG on 2nd Jan '09

                        * Units to serve Strike Notice on 6th Jan. '09

                        * State level Conventions from 6-9 Jan '09

            As per the decision of the Confederation, endorsed by Special Conference of our Association, the Central Government employees would go on indefinite strike from 20th January 2009 on the 20 point charter of demands.

            The leaders of Confederation would serve strike notice on 2nd January 09 to Cabinet Secretary after massive demonstration at Parliament House. We will serve strike notice to CAG on 2nd January 2009 after the serving of the notice by Confederation.

            Tour programme of leaders have already been circulated vide Circular No 36-2008. Units shall make out all out effort to educate and prepare the employees for the massive indefinite strike from 20th January 2009.

            Units may ensure maximum participation by our leaders and activists in the Convention that is being held under local COC banner from 6th Jan to 9th Jan 2009.

           

            The strike notice that we would be serving will have two sections, one the charter of demands adopted by the Confederation and two, the Departmental Charter of Demands adopted by the Special Conference.

            The higher pay scale can be achieved and the disadvantages in the ACP, increment date, TA/DA rates & conditionalities can be removed/improved only through best mobilisation of membership and successful strike.

            Similarly, unless and until the government is forced through united action to lift ban on recruitment our fight for filling up of posts cannot be achieved.

            A copy of the draft strike notice is given along with this Circular. Campaign material is given in the website of the Association (www.auditflag.blogspot.com)

 

            The units may hold Mass Meetings on 6th January 2008 and endorse the strike notice served by Confederation and All India Association and hand over to (P)AG/PDA/Director/DD with a covering letter. A draft resolution is also given.

To

Chief Executives of

Constituent Organisations &

Conveners, Local JACs

 

Dear Comrades,

           

As scheduled, the meeting of the apex level JAC was held on 13th December, 2008 in Delhi. The meeting was attended by Com. M. S. Raja, Chairman (AIA&AA), Com. V.Bhattacharjee, Convener (AICAEA), Com S.K. Vyas, Chairman, Confederation, R.N.Gupta, Secretary General, AIAPAO(C), Com. S. Santoshkumar, Addl. Secretary General, AIPAEA, Com. V. Nageswara Rao, JAC, AP, Com. A. S. Rawat, Chairman, JAC, Delhi, Com. A. K. Mehta, Convener, JAC, Delhi and Com. M. B. Singh, Br. Secy. AICAEA, Delhi Branch.

 

The meeting was presided over by Com. M.S. Raja, Chairman. On the Basis of the proposals placed at the time of initiating the discussion by Com. V. Bhattacharjee regarding formulation of a fresh Charter of common demands of the Accounts &Audit cadres, all the representatives of the Constituent organisations and local JACs offered their suggestions in favour of adopting a common charter of Demands.

 

The meeting also reviewed the Status of the pending arbitration award in respect of grant of higher pay scale to Sr.Accountant/Auditor w.e.f 1-1-1986 notionally and actually from a mutually agreed date on the basis of the discussion held on 25th November 2008 between a delegation of Confederation (comprising Com. S. K.Vyas, Chairman, Com. K. K.N.Kutty, Secretary General, Com. V. Bhattacharjee, Secretary, Com. K. Raghabendran, Secretary General, NFPE and Com. P. Rajnayagam, General Secretary, AIPAEA) and the JS(Per) in the Ministry of Finance. It was observed from this discussion that the Government is in its attempt of rejecting all the 16 awards pending. As far as the issue of grant of parity with Central Secretariat w.e.f.1-1-86 notionally has not also been considered by the Government keeping the proposals given in the meetings of recent past by the staff side (JCM) in view. However, Chairman of the Confederation has issued a letter to the Ministry of Finance and DOPT immediately after the meeting of 25th November pointing out the discussions held in the earlier meetings and demanded implementation of the award notionally w.e.f. 1-1-86 and effectively from 1-1-2006.

 

After threadbare discussion, the meeting adopted the following demands as draft charter of demands- 

1.       Implement arbitration award by granting higher pay scale notionally w.e.f.1-1-1986 and effectively w.e.f 1-1-2006.

2.       upgrade LDCs by re-designating them as Acctts/Audit Assistants and following pay sales to different cadres-

Accounts/Audit Assistant                                           PB-1 with Grade Pay Rs.2800

             Accountant/Auditor/ Steno Gr.II                                PB-2 with Grade Pay Rs.4200

             Sr. Accountant/Auditor/ Steno Gr.I                            PB-2 with Grade Pay Rs.4600

             SO/JAO/AAO/PS                                                        PB-2 with Grade Pay Rs.4800

                                                                                                  PB-3 with Grade Pay Rs.5400

                                                                                                  On completion of 4 years.

3.       Grant ACP on departmental hierarchy basis.

4.        Grant one increment and Grade pay of Rs.4800 from the day of passing JAO/SOG examination.

5.       Grant three increments on passing departmental confirmatory examination.

6.        Step up pay of Senior Promotees who exhausted ACP in the event of junior drawing more pay and getting ACP in compliance with apex court judgment.

7.       Grant recognition to Railway Accounts Staff Association.

 

The meeting also decided that the charter of Demands shall be circulated to all for sending their view and suggestions.

 

It has also been decided by the meeting that the apex JAC shall meet at Chennai on 11th January 2009 to finalise the charter of demands and decide about the course of organisational action(s) to be taken in support of the demands. All local JAC representatives are also to attend.

 

As the National Executive meeting of the Confederation has taken the decision of indefinite strike from 20th January 2009 and asked its affiliates to incorporate departmental demands in addition to the charter of demands adopted by the Confederation for the Strike, the JAC has decided that the constituents of apex JAC shall incorporate first six demands from the above charter of demands in their departmental charter of demands. 

 

With warm greetings,

 

 

Yours fraternally,
