The Working Committee Meeting of the National Federation of Atomic Energy Employees (NFAEE) held on 11.08.2009 at Shasthri Bhavan, Chennai attended by the representatives of all affiliated associations and Unions deliberated the developments arisen after the meeting NFAEE office bearers had with your offices on 11th February 2009. It is noted with discernment of the dashed expectation of conciliatory approach your offices reciprocated on the said meeting in resolving the issues agreed upon. This meeting still hopes that the positive approach expressed during the meeting can become fruitful.
The Working Committee meeting recalls that the said meeting elaborately and in detail discussed the issues in marathon 5 hours, but the assurances told in clear terms not made into action and the delay causes natural resentment as the meeting outcome generated a lot of positive expectations.
It can not be denied that the meeting chaired by Chairman, Atomic Energy Commission assigning considerable time to discuss the whole gamut of issues naturally invited attention of every employee/workers of this department and this aspect cannot be easily set aside.
This meeting thanks the efforts put forward by the department particularly by your offices and Additional Secretary, DAE for realisation of PRIS and Cadre Review.
The Working Committee meeting noted that the following issues, discussed in the meeting held on 11th February 2009, are not resolved which was assured to consider favourably.
1. Permanent bilateral Machinery to have bilateral discussion with NFAEE on various issues
2. Pay parity with DOS, if the contention of inferior to DOS pay scales is right.
3. OTA revision for R&D and other non industrial units
4. Entry level pay for the Technical Staff in the pre revised pay of Rs4000 – 100 – 6000.
5. Cadre Restructuring of auxiliary staff to ensure the promotion benefit
6. Promotional norms for Canteen Staff
7. One more option to switch over from CPF to GPF
8. Merger of pay scales S2 & S3 as S2A (elongated pay scale)
9. Continuation of Transport Facility
In the meanwhile it is understood that the issues such as one more option to switch over from CPF to GPF was turned down by the Ministry concerned and DAE communicated the continuation of Transport facility was not feasible by quoting just one argument placed by the Federation.
This meeting further submits that as directed by your offices this Federation made the following presentation in the form of write up to various authorities on the subject matter quoted against each.

23.02.2009 The Secretary DAE Revision of School Fees for DAE employees in AEES
30.03.2009 The Controller BARC Parity with pay structure of Technical Staff of DOS
31.03.2009 The Secretary DAE Parity with pay structure of Technical Staff of DOS
11.05.200 The Secretary DAE Parity with pay structure of Technical Staff of DOS
25.05.2009 The Chairman, TC Anomalies in Pay fixation
27.05.2009 Jt. Secretary R&D, DAE Introduction/Enhancement of Tuition fee in AEES
08.06.200 The Secretary DAE Revised Promotion Norms
10.06.200 The Secretary DAE Performance Related Incentive Scheme
22.06.2009 The Secretary DAE Revised grant of additional increments on absorption of Stipendiary Trainees
22.06.2009 The Secretary DAE Introduction of Tuition fee in AEES Schools.
01.07.2009 The Secretary DAE Pay Structure & Promotion Norms for Drivers

Apart from the written submission, the NFAEE office bearers made in person presentation with authorities concerned on the subject matters, your offices wished elaboration.
May 2009 The Controller BARC
Implementation of Part B of CCS Revised Pay Rules – Parity with pay structure of Technical Staff of DOS
30.06.2009 Controller BARC, Dr. Suri, Director MG BARC Implementation of Part B of CCS Revised Pay Rules – Parity with pay structure of Technical Staff of DOS, Anomalies in Pay fixation, Revised Promotion Norms, etc

Further the Federation office bearers also visited the offices of Additional Secretary, DAE and other officer in IR Section of DAE and explained the outcome of the meeting with officials concerned on the matters required fair deal, and justification of the weightage assigned to these issues.
Apart from that NFAEE sought meeting with the Secretary Trombay Council, the Chairman Trombay Council, the Additional Secretary DAE, etc for further persuasion of the issues referred above.
This meeting noted with great concern that the unresolved issues and on the resultant implementation of PRIS and Cadre Review compounded the issues and the fear of the working committee that the unresolved issues become knotty comes true.
In this changed scenario, this meeting felt that a detailed discussion at your level will only resolve the issues, otherwise the stop gap measures attempted/ attempting by the authorities concerned will multiply wrongness.
· For example the promotion of T/E to T/F1 is given in the same pay band and Grade Pay and in the administrative parlance, it can not be termed as promotion
· Likewise up gradation directive of government to award Group D personnel into pay band and Grade pay of Group C affecting the promotional hierarchy and the promotion avenues are punching.
· Likewise the posts of Sr. Clerk & Assistant and Purchase Assistant/Store Keeper & Sr. Purchase Assistant/Sr. Store Keeper in Administration and Purchase respectively denied the promotional benefit.
· The amended promotion norms defacto bracketed the Scientific Assistant as wasting cadre and denied them their chance of cadre change and worst, degraded the erstwhile Group A Scientific Assistants into Group B posts.
· On the issue of proper remuneration for the round the clock shift personnel manning all process are deprived of the Night Duty Allowance as well as NRPSA in actual and also in the case of Over Time Allowance for employees serving in non industrial units.
This meeting immensely feel that in alleviating the uncertainty on the implementation of awarded benefits, our department is none to other departments, but the spirit of your offices’ directive desire into action, not percolating to the lower most Group D employee of due pay and promotion.
With this diminishing conviction scenario, this meeting overwhelmingly felt that the concrete solutions to these issues listed on the fall out of other developments like PRIS, Cadre Review, Classification of posts etc require your kind attention and fair remedy. To score this remedy, this meeting seek earliest discussion with NFAEE as the euphoria of the positive atmosphere generated by your office on 11th February 2009 shall not go empty.
This meeting further calls upon the secretariat of NFAEE to make all out efforts to impress upon the need for immediate bilateral discussion with Chairman, AEC and authorize the secretariat of NFAEE to chalk out further actions needed in this regard.
