Revision of the rates of Running Allowance and other allowances related to Running Staff

All India Protest Day against the Anti Worker policies of Railway Board

Ist January, 2018 to be observed as All India Protest Day against the Anti Worker policies of Railway Board
As you all are aware, revision of rates of the Running Allowances and other allowances related to Running Staff are overdue and are delayed inordinately by the Ministry of Railways. You also know that AIRF has been making all out sincere efforts with the Railway Board to get the rates of Running Allowance and other allowances related to Running Staff revised, but till date no fruitful outcome has emerged……
The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

Dear Comrades!
Sub: Revision of the rates of Running Allowance and other allowances related to Running Staff

At the outset I convey my hearty best wishes to all of you, along with the entire family members, for a very very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2018.

As you all are aware, revision of rates of the Running Allowances and other allowances related to Running Staff are overdue and are delayed inordinately by the Ministry of Railways.
You also know that AIRF has been making all out sincere efforts with the Railway Board to get the rates of Running Allowance and other allowances related to Running Staff revised, but till date no fruitful outcome has emerged.

It has, therefore, been decided that, while celebrating New Year on 1st January, 2018, a "Protest Day" would simultaneously be observed by holding mass meetings, dharnas, rallies at all the Branches, Installations and Divisional levels to lodge our strong anguish against the dillydallying attitude of the Ministry of Railways on the subject.

You are, therefore, requested to take necessary steps in this regard, and the comprehensive reports may be sent to this office for better appreciation of the same.

With Fraternal Greetings!
Yours faithfully,
sd/-
