of  Constituent Organizations & Conveners, Local JACs

 

Dear Comrades,

The joint National Executive meeting of the Constituents of apex JAC was in Gandhi peace foundation hall, Deendayal Upadhyay Marg, New Delhi from 11.AM to 5 PM on 21st July 2009. 65 National Executive members and leaders from All India Audit and Accounts Association, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category- II, All India Postal Accounts Employees Association and All India Audit officers Association participated in the meeting.

        A presidium composing of Com. M. S. Raja, Chairman, Apex JAC and Secretary General, All India Audit and Accounts Association, Com. T. R. Janarddanan, President, National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations, Com. G. K. Gohain, Vice President, All India Audit and Accounts Association, Com. R. S. Dubey, Addl. Secretary General, All India Audit and Accounts officers Association and Com. A. P. Shastri, President, All India Postal Accounts Employees Association conducted the meeting.

After the introductory remarks by Com M. S. Raja, Chairman, Comrade V. Bhattacharjee, Convener placed a work paper on behalf of the apex JAC for discussion by the representatives present in the house. The work paper dealt on the organizational position of JAC at different levels, question of its continuance for the purpose of effective persuasion of the common charter of demands of the Accounts and Audit Employees and Officers adopted by the apex JAC.

Com. N. Nageswara Rao, Addl. Secretary General, AIA&AA addressed the house on behalf of his organization. He stated that due to our long struggle, we achieved the demand of parity partially with effect from 12-11-2001. The benefits of VI CPC are gradually disappearing and in future it will be wiped off. AIA& AA is in favour of re-invigorating JAC in every field station and prepared to take all possible steps.

              Com. R. K Chaurasia, Addl. Secy. Genl., All India Civil Accounts Employees Association while speaking on behalf of   his organization, not only stressed on the need of revitalizing the JAC at levels but also stated that, disparity which came in different cadres should be taken care off. The JAC leadership should take a serious note of it and must give continuous call for struggles to re-group the members of Audit & Accounts.

              Com. P Rajanayagam, General Secretary, All India postal Accounts Employees Association congratulated the Chairman & Convener of apex JAC  for taking positive effort to re-vitalize the local JAC in all stations. After endorsing the work paper, he told that to reconstitute the local JAC, we should take care of the potentiality of the local organization. He stated that as per the recommendations of VI CPC, there is a small gap between the pay of AAO&PAO, we should take care of that.

             Com. S. Mohan, S.G. of All India Audit & Accounts Officer's Association stated that we should re-group ourselves to take care of the grievances in terms of pay of our members. He told that we should identify the stations where the local JACs are not functioning property. He assured that the member of his organization will follow the direction of the apex JAC.

              Com.M.P.Pandit, Secretary General, All India Civil Accounts Employees Association Category II stated that his organization will take positive effort to re-constitute the JAC all over the country.

              Com. S. K. Vyas, Chairman, Confederation of C. G .Employees & workers advised that we must think and find the reasons for nonfunctioning of different units of local JAC in different stations. Previously in two times Govt. gave higher pay scales to the Assistants of Central Sectt. and after that the anger of Audit & Accounts cadre grew up. The JAC had very reasonably proposed to forego all the arrears and stated that the arbitration award may be implemented notionally from 1-1-86 /1-1-96 and actually from 1/1/2006, the date from which the higher pay scales have been granted on the basis of recommendation of VI CPC. But the Govt. did not respond in appositive way. Keeping in view of the above fact, he suggested that the apex leadership should go to different stations and take necessary steps to reconstitute the local JACs to achieve the right demands of audit & Accounts Employees. 

         Com. B. K. Bhambhi, (Ahmedabad), Com. S. C. Pandey (Allahabad), Com. K. C. Mathai (Nagpur), Com. K. L. Yadav (Jaipur), Com. R. S. Dubey, (Bhopal), Com. R. P. Singh (Lucknow), Com. T. Satyanarayana (Hyderabad), Com. S. R. Mahato (Patna), Com. J. Sreenivasan (Bangalore), Com. R. K. Chaurasia ( Mumbai), Com. S. D. Ravindran (Kerala), Com. S. P. Bhattacharjee (Kolkata), Com. G. K. Gohain, (Guwahati), Com. Santosh Kumar (Chennai), Com.L.K.Salve (Mumbai), and Com. A. K. Mehta (Delhi) participated in the discussion and placed their views.

While admitting the fact that, in most of the stations, local JACs are not functioning upto the expectations with a few exceptions like Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bangalore,  it was also very clearly expressed  by all speakers that, JAC should  not only survive in the greater interest of the Accounts and Audit Employees and officers but it should function effectively. 

Com. K.S.Rana (Sundar Nagar) and Com. C.K. Sanal (Cuttack) assured that though in their stations only Postal Accounts exist, the programmes of JAC will be implemented in future.

The members of the Presidium, Com. R. S. Dubey, Addl. SG, All India AOs. Assn, Com. C. K. Shastri, President, All India Postal Accounts Employees Association and Com. T. R. Janarddanan, President, National Federation of Civil Accounts Associations expressed their views independently. While endorsing the work paper, they pleaded for strengthening the work & organization of local JAC as well as Apex JAC.

After detailed deliberations following decisions were taken by the meeting unanimously-

1.       In order to revive JAC-

 

(a)     All Local JAC Conveners shall organize a joint meeting and inform apex JAC within one month from the date of receipt of this circular so that the representatives of apex JAC could attend such meeting.

(b)     Apex JAC shall identify the places where local JAC(s) do not exist and visit such stations.

2.       All Constituents and local JACs shall popularize the demands adopted by JAC. However, anybody can suggest their demand to Apex JAC which can be taken care of after discussing at appropriate level.                                                           

With warm regards,

Yours fraternally,

 

 (V. Bhattacharjee)

Resolution adopted at the National Executive Committee meeting of the Confederation held at New Delhi on 13th September, 2009.

 

The National Executive of the Confederation which met today on 13th September, 2009 unanimously adopted the following resolution.

(i)         It regretfully notes that the 2nd tier of JCM  fora i.e. the Departmental Council in most of the Ministries/Departments have either not been set up after 1995 and if in existence are as good as defunct.  As per the scheme, Departmental Councils are to meet once in four months.  This requirement is not being implemented wantonly with the result  that the Staff grievances have remained  unsettled for long time giving room to  discontent and agitation;

ii)         While issuing orders to pay 60% of arrears on account of revision of pay it has been stipulated that in the case of those employees recruited after 1.1.2004 that the same should be paid only after obtaining the application for registration to NPS.  This is not only uncalled for, but also an illegal condition, which should be withdrawn.

iii)         There has been unprecedented rise in price of all essential commodities which has severely reduced the purchasing power of the workers/employees income. It has affected the common people to the brink of extreme poverty.  The meeting noted that the incessant rise in inflation of food articles is due to the following policies of the government and demand reversal thereof immediately.

(a)    the pre budget hike in the prices of petrol and diesel;

(b)   the refusal to ban futures trade in essential commodities;

(c)   weakening the public distribution system making cut up to 73% in the allocation of food grains to the States;

(d)   granting permission to export to sugar lobbies and causing shortages and high  prices;

(e)  failing to ensure self sufficiency in the production of a range of crops, including cereals, sugarcane, pulses and oil seeds, thus causing shortages, high prices and dependence on imports.

  (f) the unwillingness on the part of the Govt. to deal with hoarders severely;

(iv)       despite the lifting of the ban on recruitment, no action has been initiated in the direction of filling up vacancies; in the case of vacancies in Group D Cadre, casual/contingent employees are being recruited/ the functions are contractorised; despite the Supreme Court directive and the orders issued by the Government, the casual workers who have completed ten years of service in many of the Government departments are not regularized; the employees with temporary status are not given the revised pay on 6th CPC rates and the virtual freezing of regular employment in Group D posts continues unabated;

(v)         While all allowances were revised with effect from 1.9.2008, the medical allowance for pensioners continue to be the paltry amount of Rs. 100/p.m. on the plea of the introduction of the so called the Medical insurance Scheme.  The scheme is being introduced without causing any discussion with the staff side and inspite of the repeated opposition from all concerned only to help the foreign Multinational Insurance Companies to have business at the cost of poor employees and pensioners.

In the light of the above, the National Executive has decided to call upon all affiliates and their members to organize the following programme of action.  It also direct the Secretariat to convey to the Cabinet Secretary, the discontent and  agitation of the employees and demand settlement of the issues immediately.

(i)                  to organize meetings in front of all offices and other campaign programmes like issuance of leaflets etc. to popularize the following demands  and adopt the resolution demanding the convening of the Departmental Council of the respective Ministries/Department.  This should be carried out by all affiliates and its units and branches during September and October, 2009. The resolution adopted in this regard to be sent to the concerned Secretary of the respective Ministries/Department with a copy to the Confederation CHQ.

(ii)                          To organize a human chain on 25th November, 2009 in all Cities/Towns by eliciting massive participation of the members. The human chain should preferably connect two Central Govt. offices as is chosen by the concerned COCs.  The human chain is to be organized to project the following demands as detailed in the annexed resolution.

Demands:

(a)    To reduce the price of all essential commodities.

(b)   To rescind the orders on outsourcing of Governmental functions and closure of offices

(c)    To fill up all vacancies of Group D posts by regular recruitment and stop contracting out the Group D functions and employing daily  rated/casual workers to carry out the Group D functions;

(d)   Remove the condition imposed on employees who are recruited after 1.1.2004 to draw the 60% arrears (viz. the compulsory filing of application for registration to NPS)

(e)    To rescind the decision to replace the CGHS and Medical facilities by Medical Insurance scheme without causing any discussion in this regard with the Staff Side.

(f)     To restore the Departmental Council functioning in all Ministries/Departments and ensure that the meetings of the Councils are held once in every four months. Convene the meeting of the Anomaly committees to discuss and settle the issues.

 

NATIONAL CONVENTION OF WORKERS.

14th September, 2009, Mavalankar Hall, New Delhi.

 

D e c l a r a t i o n

 

This National Convention of workers held on 14th September, 2009 at Mavalankar Hall, New expresses serious concern over:

Rising prices of the essential commodities including food grains and vegetables creating severe hardships for the mass of the people;

Continuing job losses resulting in loss of livelihood to millions of the workers across the sectors owing to recession and economic slow down;

Non implementation of and rampant violation of basic labour laws pertaining to minimum wages, working hours, social security, safety in workplace and trade union rights etc. throughout the country adding to the suffering of the entire toiling people;

Extreme inadequacy of the provisions and scheme under the unorganized workers social security Act 2008 to provide any substantive relief to the vast multitude of unorganized sector workers including the contract workers owing to the restrictive provisions under the schemes  and absence of any National Fund for the unorganized sector (NAFUS) as recommended by the National Commission on enterprises in unorganized sector (NCEUS) and Parliamentary Standing Committee on Labour

Move the Govt. for disinvestment of shares in profit making Central Public Sector enterprises.

                The National Convention urges upon the Government to take urgent remedial/corrective measures to address the aforesaid concerns of working people effectively so that

Price rise of essential commodities is contained through appropriate corrective and distributive measures like universal PDS and containing speculation in commodity market;

Concrete proactive measures are taken for the linkage of employment protection in the recession stricken sectors with the stimulus  package being offered to the concerned entrepreneurs and for augmenting public investment in infrastructure;

Strict enforcement of all basic labour laws without any exception or exemption and stringent punitive measures for violation of labour laws

Steps are taken for removal of all restrictive provisions bases on poverty line in respect of eligibility coverage of the schemes under the unorganized workers social security Act 2008 and creation of National Fund for unorganized sector to provide for a National Floor level Social Security to all unorganized workers including the contract/casual workers in line with the recommendation of National Commission on enterprises in Unorganized Sector and Parliamentary Standing Committee on Labour.

Disinvestment of shares of Central Public Sector enterprises (CPSEs) is not resorted to for meeting budgetary deficit and instead their growing reserve and surplus is used for expansion and modernization purposes and also for revival of sick public Sector undertakings.

                The National Convention adopts the following programmes to highlight the above burning issues facing the working people;

                             State Level Joint Conventions

                                To observe All India Protest Day on 28th October, 2009.

                The National Convention calls upon the workers and employees and their unions irrespective of affiliations to unitedly highlight their concern over the above mentioned burning issues facing them.  The Convention also appeals to them to participate in  the joint programmes of the trade union en masse to press for the above mentioned demands before the govt.
