Agenda for COC meeting

Karnataka State Co-ordination Committee of Central Government Employees & Workers, Bangalore
AGENDA for COC meeting
Dear Comrades


Anomaly and Standing Committee meetings.
There had been no formal or informal meeting with the Government either to discuss the anomalies or issues emanating from the implementation of the 6th CPC so far. We had placed the items the staff side had sent for the consideration of the National anomaly committee (first installment) on our website. The second and final set of items is likely to be submitted in a day or two. As and when the same is finalized we shall place copy thereof on our website. We have received innumerable number of letters from our affiliates requesting us to take up the department specific anomaly items in the National Council. It is difficult to individually respond to these letters. Department specific items are to be pursued at the Departmental Anomaly Committees. Complaints have been received by us that many Ministries have so far not set up anomaly committees. We shall take up this issue with the Department of Personnel.

National Council meeting.

The National Council of the Confederation is due to be held in this month as indicated in our last communication. The available members of the National Secretariat of the Confederation met at New Delhi and it has been decided to convene the Council meeting either by the end of November, 2009 or in the first week of December, 2009 as per the availability of the hall etc The Council meeting will be held at New Delhi.

All India Convention of workers: 14th September, 2009.


The Sponsoring Committee of Central Trade Unions along with INTUC and BMS has decided to convene a National Convention on14th September, 2009. The main theme of the convention is to harness the support of the entire working class in the country against the neo liberal economic policies and the anti labour attitude of the Government. The extract from the communication we have received in this regard is given hereunder.
The meeting of the Central Trade Unions held on 19th July, 2009 at the INTUC H.qrs. at New Delhi expressed serious concern over;
*rising prices of essential commodities including food grains and vegetable creating severe hardship for the mass of the people
*continuing job losses resulting in loss of livelihood to millions of workers across the sectors owing to recession and economic slowdown
*non implementation of and rampant violation of basic labour laws pertaining to minimum wages, working hours, social security safety in workplace and trade union rights etc. throughout the country adding to the sufferings of the entire toiling people
*move of the Government for disinvestment of shares in profit making central public sector enterprises

The Central Trade Unions call upon the workers and employees and their unions irrespective of affiliation to unitedly highlight the concern over the above mentioned burning issues facing them and at the same time urge upon the Government to take urgent remedial corrective measures to address the aforesaid concerns of working people effectively.
The Central Trade Union decides to submit a memorandum to the Prime Minister on the aforesaid issues and hold a National convention of Trade Unions at Delhi in September, 2009 to chalk out common future programme.

60% PAY COMMISSION ARREARS FOR CG EMPLOYEES IN SEPTEMBER

The leaders of Confederation had interacted with the Finance Secretary on the issue of payment of 60% balance arrears of pay commission - We were told that the payment will be ordered only in the month of September 2009 when one year period will be completed from payment of 40% arrears last year. Though funds have been allotted in the Budget, the payment orders will be only next month.


CGHS:

The Government is moving ahead with the introduction of Health Insurance Scheme in lieu of CGHS in a big way. This stand is the fall out of the recommendations of the 6th CPC for introducing such a medical insurance scheme. The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare has called for Expression of Interest from Health Insurers / Health Insurance Consultants by providing the following information.

Confederation of Central Government Employees has taken a position that strengthening of CGHS will be the better option instead of going for such Health Insurance Schemes. The stand of the Government is a fall out of the neo-liberalization policy under which the State is withdrawing more and more from its commitment towards providing health services.

OUTSOURCING OF DATA ENTRY WORK RELATED TO BOOKING OF BULK SPEED POST ARTICLES.

Department of Posts has ordered outsourcing of data entry work related to booking of speed post articles w.e.f. 1st September 2009.

Indian Audit and Accounts Department: Expression of Interest

Appointment of a Consultant to conduct a work-study to redefine/established work norms relevant in the current context for optimized staffing of Group ‘B’ & ‘C’ cadres in Indian Audit and Accounts Department and thus arrive at a continuing scientific framework to estimate manpower requirement for various types of audit/ accounting work in the changing environment


The existing work norms, crucial for assessing manpower needs for both audit and accounts and entitlement offices, are very old. There have been rapid changes in the work environment over the past couple of decades such as automation of certain government functions, increased role of public private partnership model, increase in regulatory functions, e-governance, and changes in public funding of major programmes and schemes, etc. As a result, the existing work norms have become outdated and are no longer comprehensive enough to be of much use in determining optimal strength of the Department.

Funds:
All affiliates are requested to remit annual subscription and Special funds in respect of 6th CPC arrears

Comradely yours
