CIRCULAR- 7/07 Date: 29.11.07
Dear Comrades,

Conduct demonstrations on 30.11.07 against LTU

Please recall the decision of the Convention of the C-o-C of Associations/Federations in the department of Revenue, held at Chennai, conveyed to all through the previous circular. The first decision of the forum is reproduced below:

Holding of Lunch Hour Demonstration on 30 November 2007 to oppose LTU and to extend support to the movement of Customs and Central Excise Gr. D and Ministerial officers for amendment/ notification of Recruitment Rules.

As per the above all Branches and Circles are hereby called upon to conduct demonstrations tomorrow (30.11.07) during lunch hour ALONG WITH OTHER CONSTITUENTS OF THE COC WHEREEVER AVAILABLE and pass resolution on the above lines and communicate the same to the administration apart from sending a copy to this association.

Demand on Bonus ceiling

Apart from the above demands, the demand in respect of making the amendment to the Bonus Act in respect of ceiling, applicable to the CG Employees also, as per the Confederation’s call reproduced below:

Dear Comrades,

As you are aware., the Government took the decision to raise the bonus ceiling for the purpose of computation from Rs 2500 to Rs 3500 after more than a decade. As per the Press Information Bureau release, this decision of the cabinet is applicable to the bonus payable to the workers for the FY 2006-07 onwards. The Adhoc and productivity linked bonus in the case of CG Employees were declared and paid in Sept. Oct. 2007.
Confederation has taken up this issue with the Government. The Secretary of the Staff Side of the JCM National council had also written to the Secretary, Expenditure and Secretary Personnel, indicating the need for making this applicable to the CGEs. for the year 2006-07 and revise the orders issued in respect of PLB and adhoc bonus. We have been informed by the Officials in the Finance Ministry that the proposal is awaiting the approval of the Finance Minister. Perhaps this may require the sanction from the cabinet too as that has been the procedure adopted in the earlier occasion. Since the matter is being unduly delayed for no ostensible reason as the Finance Minister was party to the earlier cabinet decision for raising the ceiling limit to Rs 3500,the Confederation desires that Demonstration/Dharna should be organized in front of all Offices and sendm the following telegram/Saving gram to Shri P. Chidambaram, Finance Minister, Govt. of India, North Block, New Delhi- 110 001. The programme of action may be carried out immediately on receipt of this letter by the Units of all affiliates. The affiliates are requested to kindly convey the decision to their branches and units so that the programme will have wider participation and create sanction to compel the Govt. to take an expeditious and positive decision in this matter. We are sending this communication through our e-mail and copy of the same has been placed in our web-site. Programme may be carried out as and when the message is received by the State/Divisional/Branches. Confederation has also sent SMS to all the National Executive Members.
