Enclosed herewith resolutions passed in the Staff Side meeting on the eve of the 64th D.C. Meeting held on 29th July, 2012 at JCM Office, Brindavan, Anushaktinagar, Mumbai – 400 094 which may please be noted.
Secretary, Staff Side
The meeting of the Staff Side Members of DAE Departmental Council (JCM) held on 29th July, 2012 at JCM Office, Anushaktinagar, Mumbai – 400 094 resolved to condemn the attitude of the Department towards the functioning of JCM forum by approaching casually on issues as well as the system.
The meeting noted with serious concern the lethargic and indifferent attitude of the administrative authorities while dealing with the staff related matters either in the JCM forum or in bilateral discussion
While going through the Action Taken Report as well as the Agenda items accepted for 64th DAE Departmental Council, it established the casual approach of the administrative authorities. The Department has not been adopted any policy and number contradictory approach has been taken.
For example, in the matter for Cadre Review, though the issue was discussed by Chairman Atomic Energy Commission with NFAEE on
29th July 2011 as well as in the 63rd DAE Departmental
Council meeting held on 14th December 2011 and the same was reflected in the Action Taken
Report. Instead of declaring the constitution of the Cadre Review Committee and
the terms of reference, it is stated that the matter is under consultation even
after 12 months of the directive given the Chairman Atomic Energy Commission to
constitute the Cadre Review Committee. The staff side meeting observed it is
not just insult of the staff side but insult of the Chairman Atomic Energy
At the same time another item was rejected by saying that item was discussed in the earlier DC.
Not only the above mentioned is the example for the departments attitude. An item which was rejected in the 59th DC Meeting mentioning that the item was of Group A employees has been accepted as Agenda Item for discussion in 64th DC meeting - Gazetted status for Scientific Assistants. Another matter pertaining to Group A has been accepted for discussion in the DC is the restriction on LTC introduced by the Department on Tour.
The meeting also observed that ATR is incomplete and number of issues discussed in the previous DC meeting was not reflected in the ATR and thus allowed a natural death of such items.
The Staff side meeting strongly feels that delaying the arbitration process on entry level pay for Tradesman as 4000 – 100 – 6000 which was recorded disagreement in the year 2006 is a vindictive attempt by the department
Similarly issues of promotion norms for Security, DPS Staff and Canteen are pending in the Department from to 15 years for implementation. DAE may be the only one Department which may not formulate recruitment and promotion policy for it canteen employees after the canteen employees became Central Government Employees by virtue of the Supreme Court directive.
Under the above mentioned circumstance the staff side meeting unanimously expressed the concern in the recent past development towards the approach on issues pertaining to the employees of DAE as well as the attitude of the Department on bilateral discussion and resolved to communicate that the if the Department continue the same approach will not give any fruitful decision on matters pertaining to the DAE employees.
Thus the Staff side unanimously resolved to appeal the Chairman DAE Departmental Council to consider the JCM forum as a respectful forum for negotiation as the Government of India expect.
Leader, Staff Side
