Sub: Notice for Protest Action Programme

Dear Comrades,

Last two phases of action programme was conducted in almost all units successfully. On behalf of the Secretariat of NFAEE I heartfully congratulating those affiliates conducted BLACK DAY observation as well DAY LONG DHARNA.

The following associations were participated in the two stage action programme:

AEW&S UNION, BARC
DCS&EMSA, DCS&EM
AIAEDPS (S) SA, DPS (STORES)
DPS (DAE) EA (PURCHASE)
HWBSA, HWB
BRITSA, BRIT
DAE SEC SA, DAE
BARCEAT, BARC TARAPUR
BPKS, HWP BARODA
RAKU, HWP KOTA
HWEU, HWP TALCHER
CATSA, CAT INDORE
VECCSA, VECC KOLKOTTA
NFCEA, NFC HYDERABAD
NFC SUPERVISORY SA, NFC
HWP (M) EA, HWP MANUGURU
HWP EU, HWP TUTICORINE
AEEA, RMP MYSORE
AEEA, IGCAR KALPAKKAM
BARCFEA, BARCF KALPAKKAM
GSO EA, GSO KALPAKKAM
MRPU SA, DPS CHENNAI
In Hyderabad Store staff also joined in the programme. Similarly in Kalpakkam, the MAPS (NPCIL) employees union – TAPEU – too joined in the both programme.

From the above it can be seen that there were one or two affiliates underestimating the necessity of the united action and waiting for the fruit for which others are sweating and losing their pay. It is high time to identify such elements. But we cannot sit idle as there are a few ditches our movements in the middle. We have to march foreward with an appeal to those who are in double mind to join in the struggle.

As we decided unanimously in the All India convention held at Mumbai on 9th December 2008, the next phase of our agitation shall be 24 HOURS LONG FAST at Mumbai on 17th December 2008 in which at least one office bearers of all affiliates also will participate and DAY LONG FAST in all DAE units on 18th December 2008. Notice for the programme shall be given to DAE on 8th December 2008. Copy of the Notice to the Secretary DAE is attached herewith. All affiliates also requested to serve the notice by 10th December 2008.

I am directed by the Secretariat to inform all affiliates that the programme decided by the Convention should not be modified or altered by the affiliates as per their wishes.

Dear Comrades,

Our fight is not only to get the monitory benefit or for parity with the employees of Department of Space, but to gain our self respect. The DAE authorities has been taken such a stand that the non gazetted employees of the Department is nothing and proposed nothing for their career prospects where as they shown their consideration towards higher level scientific community. The approach of the Department is now exposing one after the other by getting the report/ comments prepared by the Committees as well as the Department to submit the Pay Commission, Secretaries Committee etc.

Their may always be a group to sabotage the Trade Union movement to weaken the bargaining power by misguiding the leadership as well as employees in general as they are the masters voice.

So I appeal to all affiliates of NFAEE to forgo the past and joint vigorously in the coming course of action programme

Thanking you.

Yours faithfully,

(Jayaraj.K.V)

PRESS RELEASE

ATOMIC ENERGY EMPLOYEES ON WAR PATH
AGAINST THE DISCRIMINATION ON PAY

Thousands of employees working in the various units of Department of Atomic Energy through out the country participated in the agitation against the discriminatory attitude of the Department on finalizing their pay. While implementing the revised pay structure the Department not only denied better pay structure to the non gazetted employees, but taken away the promotional avenues by merging the pay scales.

During the discussion the management assured better pay structure and facilities to the employees and a committee constituted to recommend proper pay structure in consultation with the similar Departments like Department of Space, etc. But the Committee failed even to recommend the pay structure adopted by the Department of Space for its non gazetted staff, though both Departments are coming under none other than Hon’ble Prime Minister. By doing so, the employees of Department of Atomic Energy losing thousands of rupees by way of salary on comparison with the employees in similar grade working in Department of Space and this will reflect in their pension and other benefits.

When Ministry of Health, Ministry of HRD etc succeeded to upgrade the pay structure of the employees of their core activities such as nurses, teachers respectively, Department of Atomic Energy miserably failed to ensure better pay structure for their employees working in the core area such as radiation and other hazardous field. Department also failed to complete the Cadre Review for their administrative, accounts, auxiliary, purchase & store staff which other department completed & implemented well before the submission of the recommendations of Sixth Central Pay Commission (SCPC), by which these categories in those Department got the financial up-gradation while implementing SCPC report.

By virtue of this attitude all section of employees of Department of Space is in better position. This can be clear from the facts given below:

· When the auxiliary staff of Space who got two promotions in their carrier getting higher grade pay than that of DAE employees and having better promotional option too.

· The entry level of administrative, accounts, purchase & store staff of the Space Department is higher than that of DAE and the difference in the grade pay at the entry level is Rs500/- per month.

· The Technical staff, core group of the R&D and Industrial activities under DAE too denied the better pay structure comparing to the Space staff. The senior most employees in Technical staff – Technicians, Draftsmen, Foremen, Scientific Assistants, etc – are getting lesser pay in the tune of Rs1000 to Rs1200/- per month, as the selection of pay scale has not been done properly.

As the Department is adamant in their stand and the demand for pay structure is unresolved call was given by the National Federation of Atomic Energy Employees (NFAEE) to protest against the discriminatory approach of the Department by way of protest demonstration, wearing black badges on 28th/29th November 2008 and holding Day Long Dharna on 3rd December 2008. More than 15 thousands employees working in the prestigious Research & Development establish in the Nuclear Industry such as Bhabha Atomic Research Centre – BARC- (Mumbai, Tarapur, Mysore, Kalpakkam)), Indira Gandhi Cente for Research – IGCAR - (Kalpakkam), Centre for Advanced Technology – CAT - (Indore) Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre – VECC - (Kolkotta), Industrial units such as Nuclear Fuel Complex – NFC - (Hyderabad), Heavy Water Plants (Tutiocrine, Manuguru, Baroda, Kota, Talcher) and other supporting units such as Directorate of Estate Management (Mumbai), General Service Organisation (Kalpakkam), Directorate of Purchase & Stores (Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kalpakkam, etc) participated in the protest action programme.

The NFAEE & and its affiliates has been given notice for next phase of agitation, 24 hour Long Fast on 17th/ 18th December 2008 in Mumbai and Day Long Fast in all DAE units across the country on 18th December 2008.
