04.03.2013

Dear Colleagues,

13th STEERING COMMITTEE (11TH TERM) MEETING OF  JCM III LEVEL COUNCIL OF OFB HELD ON 27.02.2013 AT OFB HQRS, KOLKATTA UNDER THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF DDG/IR. MEMBER/PERS ALSO PARTICIPATED FOR SOME TIME TO HEAR THE VIEWS OF THE STAFF SIDE MEMBERS.

Prior to this meeting, Member/Pers, OFB convened a meeting to discuss the co-relation piece work on revised pay of 6th CPC in continuation of the earlier meeting held on 12.12.12.  In the last meeting three Federations have strongly objected to any reduction in the job rate/Estimates on account of Co-relation in every pay commission.

            No conclusion could be arrived taking our views Member/Pers discussed with DGOF & Chairman and then convened this meeting with Federation leaders.

OFFICIAL SIDE PROPOSED THE FOLLOWING PROPOSALS

PROPOSAL – I         Rs.5200/- PB-I will be the basic pay for SSK, SK, HS II, HS I and MCM without any reduction.  This minimum of pay Rs.5200/- will be correlated irrespective of the job and skill.

PROPOSAL II          Rs.5200/- PB-1 will be co-related to SSK, SK to HSII & I and for MCM Rs.9300 will be co-related as minimum pay but 70% to 80% will be reduced in the earnings.
            The above two proposals were totally disagreed by the Federations and submitted the following proposals

PROPOSAL-I            Semiskilled is going to be abolished.  Therefore, Skilled Grade PB-I Rs.5200+1900 GP = Rs7100/- should be fixed as Basic Pay for all the grades upto HIS  and for MCM Rs.9300/- should be co-related for piece work without any reduction in Rates/Estimates In addition, annual movements and allowances should be paid as separate elements without linking to piece work.

Further 3 ¼ hours between 44 ¾ and 48 Hrs in a week, piece workers should be paid OT Allowance on Time Wages at par with Day Workers.

After prolonged deliberations, to contain the cash out go, the following proposal was mutually agreed subject to the approval of DGOF & Chairman in consultation of Finance division/OFB and will be forwarded to  M of D

For Skilled, HS Grd-II         Rs.5200 will be taken as minimum of pay for calculating Hourly rate and HS Grd –I for all the correlated piece work For MCM    Rs.9300/- will be taken as minimum of pay for calculating the Hourly rate.

The Demand of payment of OT for 3 ¼ hours to Piece workers has to be paid for which a separate case will be submitted to Government of Indian, Ministry of Defence. This has to be approved by Defence Finance, DOP&T, Ministry of Defence.  This has to be approved by Defence Finance, DOP&T, Ministry of Finance and finally cabinet has to approve for issue of final orders.

To reach a Settlement it was unanimously agreed that there will be no reduction in rates/Estimates.

Yours Sincerely,
(R.SRINIVASAN)
General Secretary.
