Sub: Resolution adopted in the
ALL INDIA CONVENTION OF DAE EMPLOYEES held on 31st July 2010
Please refer our letter No nfaee/sg/10/083 dated 2nd August 2010 seeking an appointment in the second week of August 2010 for submission of the resolution adopted by All India Convention of DAE Employees held on 31st July 2010 at the Multi Purpose Hall, BARC Training School Hostel Anushakti Nagar, Mumbai. For the reason of your busy schedule, your offices could not spare the time during that week, so we submitted the copy of the resolution to your office on 13th August 2010.
However we are pleasurable for allowing us to meet you in person to hand over the Resolution which contains the demands pertaining to the DAE employees pending unresolved for long time.
The major issue we feel is that the failure of the Department to continue a healthy interaction with the elected representatives at various level. Although the Federation was recognized by the Department in the year 2007, only three meetings had been convened with the Secretary DAE. It is a sorry to state that the meeting with Secretary and the representatives is only an after effect of notice for strike. The last meeting with the officials was held on 18th February 2009. That too was after effect of STRIKE NOTICE. In the meeting a decision had been consciously arrived to work out a methodology and would be adapted to hold periodic meeting with NFAEE to resolve the issues raised by the NFAEE and its affiliates.
But even after lapses of 18 months, not a single meeting even at the level of Joint Secretary has been convened. In the month of October 2009, NFAEE sought an appointment with the Secretary DAE to discuss various issues, especially the discrepancies created while implementing various recommendations of the Sixth Central Pay Commission (SCPC). Not only meeting has been arranged but also not obligatory response to the various letters addressed. When ever, this Federation approaches the office of the Secretary/DAE, the ready made excuse is the busy schedule of the Secretary. Even after new Secretary took charge, even a courtesy meeting too could not be arranged either the Staff relations officials of DAE or Office of the Secretary.
During this period, a number of letters have been written to the Secretary, Additional Secretary to take necessary proper action to resolve the issues. But, DAE never communicated to this federation – leave alone the letters addressed by our affiliates- what action has been initiated to resolve the problem brought to the notice of the Department.
The JCM functioning in DAE become derision. The Departmental Council meetings are now a day becomes a futile exercise. The Chairman of the Department Council (unique from all other central Ministries/ Departments where Secretary to Government is the Chairman of DC) doesn’t have the time to chair the meeting full day to discuss and settle the issues. Lakhs of rupees are being spent to convene the meeting that too without adequate notice and finish the meeting within hours without any meaningful decisions.
The agenda items submitted for discussion in the DC meeting has been unilaterally taken out and the staff side kept in dark on issues. In the earlier days the Chairman of DC was prepared to sit even two days to complete the proceedings and even small group meeting was arranged to follow up the decision taken. DC meeting become for the sake of calling meeting and treating Joint Consultative machinery in a disdain mood. Earlier days the date of the ensuing DC meeting was tentatively fixed in the meeting itself and strictly adhered to the date also, but now not ready to confirm the month in which next DC will be held.
There are laid down norms for the functioning of Joint Consultative Machinery. But DAE is not bothered about on such norms. If a cursory look at the functioning of our JCM Scheme, it is very much evident that JCM is treated as untouchable. No issues have been concluded in the last so many years. Even after given right up and supportive documents with agenda items, the Chairman simply asking the staff side to submit papers like imposition and simply delay the decision on issues.
Though not liking, let allow us place that the atmosphere created in the Department of Space by sharing the information with the representatives of the employees. The Chairman Space Commission regularly meets the office bearers of the recognized organizations at regular interval and shares the views. He spare times to Chair the Departmental Council meetings regularly resulting in time bound decisions thus effective exploitation of JCM.
In this circumstance the approach towards on the recognized Federation, unions and associations to be reviewed by the Department in a spirited mutual manner and initiate a confidence building measures to deliver the effectiveness of bilateral discussion. A proper system as promised shall be evolved for frequent interaction with the office bearers of NFAEE to sort out the issues raised time to time as the present system of JCM is contending only to Group C employees.
It is therefore we request you to convene a meeting of the office bearers of NFAEE at the earliest to discuss the issues submitted along with this letter. The list of the office bearer is also attached. Since the office bearers of NFAEE are representing various DAE units across the country the date of the meeting may be communicated to all officer bearers in advance so that they can reach at the place of the meet in time. The copy of the resolution adopted in the All India Convention of DAE Employees held on 31st July 2010 is attached herewith
Lastly let we quote Hon. Prime Minister Dr. man Singh’s Independence Day Speech
Discussion and dialogue are the only options to resolve complex issues. As far as the Central Government is concerned, we are ready to take forward every process of talks which could lead to progress in resolution of problems.
