GOOD MORNING AND SALUTE TO ALL
FROM SOME QUARTERS A QUESTION HAVE ARISED THAT WHY OUR UNION IS NOT ATTENDING THE MEETING TO BE HELD ON 19.06.2017 CONVENED BY CHIEF ENGINEER WHEN OUR COUNTERPART UNION HAVE CONSENTED FOR IT.  WE FEEL AN EXPLANATION FROM GENERAL SECRETARY IS REQUIRED HENCE THIS POST. AS FAR AS NON GAZETTED EMPLOYEES OF CIVIL WING CONCERNED THE MAJOR ISSUES ARE CADRE REVIEW, CREATION OF POSTS AND TRANSFER AND POSTING POLICY APART FROM SOME MINOR ISSUES WHICH WE HAVE PROJECTED IN OUR STRIKE NOTICE CHARTER OF DEMANDS.  ALL THE ELEVEN ISSUES WERE DISCUSSED AT THE SECRETARY LEVEL ON 28.03.2017 AND MINUTES WERE ISSUED BY THE DEPARTMENT EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NOT REFLECTING THE FACTUAL DISCUSSION FOR WHICH WE HAVE REPRESENTED TO SECRETARY.  NOW ALL THESE MAJOR ISSUES ARE LYING IN THE OFFICE OF CHIEF ENGINEER SINCE THEN.  ONCE A SENIOR LEVEL MEETING HAS BEEN CONDUCTED AND MINUTES ISSUED WITH THE COMMENTS THAT ACTION BY SO AND SO, WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR QUITE SOME TIME FOR THE ACTION TAKEN BY THE RESPECTIVE OFFICES.  NOW EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT TWO MONTHS ONLY PASSED AND IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR ANY DEPARTMENTAL OFFICER CAN FINALISE THE MAJOR ISSUES LIKE CADRE REVIEW, CREATION OF POST ETC.  TILL NOW AS PRESIDENT/GENERAL SECRETARY I HAVE ATTENDED VARIOUS MEETING FOR LAST SIX YEARS EVEN ALONE EXCEPT IN SOME OCCASIONS RAISED VARIOUS ISSUES BEFORE THE CHIEF ENGINEERS. BUT ALL WERE GONE IN VAIN BECAUSE NO FOLLOW UP ACTION CAME OUT THAT MEANS WASTING OF TIME, ENERGY, MANPOWER FOR PREPARING AGENDA ITEMS AND COLLECTING DATAS FOR DISCUSSION ETC.  AS EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT WHENEVER WE RAISE AN ISSUE RELATING TO STAFF MEMBERS THE CHIEF ENGINEERS WERE SHIFTING THE RESPONSIBILITIES TO  CIRCLE LEVELS WHERE NEITHER MEETINGS WERE CALLED FOR SETTLING ISSUE NOR COMPLYING THE DECISIONS OF THE MEETING WITH CHIEF ENGINEER HAVE TAKEN PLACE EXCEPT IN THE CASE OF PRESENT TRANSFER ISSUE.  WE HAVE ALREADY FILED THE PETITION BEFORE THE HON’BLE CAT, ERNAKULAM AND NEXT HEARING IS ON 12.06.2017 FOR ISSUANCE OF THE UNIFORM TRANSFER AND POSTING POLICY BY THE DIRECTORATE INCORPORATING THE DEPT. OF PERSONNEL AND TRAINING DIRECTIVES.  NOW EVERYBODY CAN SEE THAT WE ARE FIGHTING FOR THE CAUSE OF ALL NOT FOR THE INDIVIDUAL BENEFIT OF ANY OFFICE BEARER LIKEWISE OF OUR COUNTER PART UNION. 
NOW THEY HAVE PROJECTED THE AGENDA FOR POSTING OF ASSISTANT IN BANGALORE AND BOMBAY.  AS FAR AS BANGALORE CIRCLE IS CONCERNED THERE IS NO VACANCY OF ASSISTANT AS ON DATE AND IT MAY ARISE ONLY AFTER 30TH JUNE WHEN PROMOTION ORDER OF ASSISTANT TO OFFICE SUPERINTENDENT IS ISSUED AND JOINS WITHIN ONE MONTH.  DISCUSSION ON THE CADRE REVIEW WITH CHIEF ENGINEER AT PRESENT IS ONLY AN EYEWASH AND CONDUCTING THE MEETING ON 19.06.2017 ITSELF IS ALSO A PLEASING TO ATTITUDE OF OUR DEPARTMENTAL OFFICERS WITHOUT ASKING OUR CONVENIENCE ITSELF TO COMBINE THE COUNTERPART UNIONS CIRCLE CONFERENCE AT DELHI. IN VIEW OF THE ABOVE I AS A GENERAL SECRETARY IS NOT CHANGING OUR STAND THAT TILL MEETINGS WITH CIRCLE SUPERINTENDING ENGINEERS ARE CONDUCTED AS PER MANDATORY TRADE UNION FACILITY WE WILL NOT ATTEND THE MEETING CALLED FOR BY THE CHIEF ENGINEER AS NO POSITIVE RESULT WILL COME OUT FROM IT. INCIDENTALLY I POINT OUT ONLY ONE INCIDENT.  THE DECISION AT THE ADDITIONAL DIRECTOR GENERAL(CO-ORDINATION) ON 28.03.2017 THAT NO TRANSFER AND POSTING WILL BE ISSUED TILL 31.05.2017 ON THE BASIS OF THE ORDERS OF CHIEF ENGINEER ISSUED ON 02.02.2017 AND 06.02.2017.  BUT ON 13.04.2017 THE AHMEDABAD CIRCLE HAVE ISSUED TRANSFER ORDERS ON 13.04.2017 AND PUT INTO EFFECT IMMEDIATELY.  FURTHER THE TRANSFER ORDERS IS NOT ON THE BASIS OF THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE COMMITTEE FOR THE PURPOSE BUT ON THE WHIMS AND FANCY OF SUPERINTENDING ENGINEER. FURTHER WE REQUESTED THE CHIEF ENGINEER REGARDING ONE OF OUR MEMBER WHO IS A DISBALED MAN WHOSE CASES IS PENDING IN HIS OFFICE PENDING FOR MORE THAN TEN MONTHS AND THE HARASSMENT BEING FACED BY HIM WAS EXPLAINED AND EVEN VIDEO OF HIS CONDITION WAS SHOWN TO CHIEF ENGINEER BUT NO ACTION HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN THIS REGARD AND STILL THE HARASSMENT PERSISTS. FROM THIS IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT DEPARTMENT IS NOT KIND ENOUGH TO LOWER GRADE OFFICIALS AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS THEIR SLAVES AND MAID SERVANTS. THEN WHAT PURPOSE WILL BE SERVED IF WE ATTEND THE MEETING ON 19.06.2017.  SINCE NOW WE AGITATE DEFINITELY I EXPECT HARASSMENT TO ME AND NEGATIVE DECISIONS IN PERSONAL ISSUES BY IMMEDIATE SUPERIOR OFFICERS AND EVEN THEY WILL TRY TO KEEP ME AT A DISTANT PLACE FROM MY FAMILY ETC. EVEN IF I AM ELIGIBLE FOR IT IN ONE OR OTHER WAY.  I HOPE THAT ALL MEMBERS WILL SUPPORT ME WHEN ANY ADVERSE THING HAPPENS TO ME ON THIS ACCOUNT. AS GENERAL SECRETARY I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT I WILL NEVER BEND BEFORE THE DEPARTMENT FOR MY PERSONAL GAIN.  WE HAVE FOR QUITE LONG YEARS BOWED BEFORE THE DEPARTMENTAL OFFICERS UPTO DEEP END OF THE BOREWELL IN DESERTS BUT THE ADMINISTRATION WAS DANCING ON OUR HEAD TO DIG FURTHER. IF WE UNITEDLY AGITATE AS PER TEMPO NOW THE ULTIMATE WIN WILL BE WITH US. 
 
NOW WE MAY UNITEDLY DECIDE WE WILL NOT COMPROMISE WITH DEPARTMENT
TILL OUR GENUINE DEMANDS ARE ACCEPTED
