Day Long Dharna _ an Appeal to DAE Employees



An Appeal to all DAE Employees


Dear Colleagues,

The National Federation of Atomic Energy Employees (NFAEE) had an introductory meeting with the current chairman AEC on 10th July 2012, subsequent his assuming charges to office.   As the outcome of the meeting the Chairman AEC requested to submit the issues of importance for discussion.  Accordingly the NFAEE has submitted 12 point charter for bilateral discussion. Now it is 9 months and 12 days has passed. Still we are in dark about the discussion. In the meantime on 15th February 2013 the Director IR&W intimated through a letter that almost all the major issues submitted for discussion are unwarranted and no need of discussion. On 25th February 2013 NFAEE appealed the Chairman, AEC to initiate bilateral discussion. The concern of NFAEE towards the callous attitude of the DAE administration has been expressed and requested to arrange a meeting with the Chairman AEC. 

Instead of getting a call letter for meeting, the employees of DAE were shocked/surprised with a clarification, denying  the promotional benefit of one increment (on same Grade Pay) extended by the Ministry of Expenditure by vide their OM No. 10/02/2011 – E.III/A dated 07.01.2013. This OM was issued only after continuous deliberation in the National Anomaly Committee constituted by the Government of India. The clarification was issued by the DAE under the pretext that the norms for technical staff was revised by Trombay council (TC) vide Note No. TC/1(52)/89/2011/56035 dated 27.06.2011. It is a fact that the said revised TC norms were made applicable prospectively with effect from July 2011 and not retrospectively, where as the OM issued by the Department of Expenditure is effective from 1st January 2006.

Time and again the DAE administration has proved their apathetic and prejudiced attitude towards the issues concerning the employees, by issuing clarifications without going through the merits of the issues. Similarly there are number of issues pending for decision at DAE and no sincere effort has took to resolve the same.

 The Working Committee meeting of NFAEE held at Kalpakkam on 16th & 17th March 2013 decided to hold the program of DAY LONG DHARNA in all DAE units on 23rd April 2013, if the Department has not called for discussion. 

          All affilaites of NFAEE has been endorsed the call given by NFAEE and decided to hold DAY LONG DHARNA on 23rd April 2013 in front of DAE Establishments across the country from early morning onwards.
