At the call of Dy. chief Labour Commissinor ( Central) Mumbai , one more round of conciliation was held at Mumbai on 17th December 2014 , wherein the IBA expressed its inability to move upwards in in its offer of increase in wages. Further , I.BA informed that it has asked all the Banks of revisit the mandate given to IBA earlier to negotiate with unions on wage revision . U.F.B.U. firmly protested the action of IBA in calling for revisiting the mandate and termed it as nothing but a deliberate / unwarranted instigation and provocation, which would further complicate the process of wage negotiations. The conciliation ended inconclusive. Subsequent to the conciliation process, the representatives of constituent unions of U.F.B.U met to chalk out further course of action . The meeting was presided over by Com. S.U. Deshpande (N.O.B.O) as Com.K.K.Nair could not be present in the meeting . The meeting observed a minute's silence to condole the death of Com. N, Sampath , former President of AIBEA , justice V. R. Krishna Iyer and innocent children brutally killed in the inhuman terrorist attack in the Peshawar school in Pakistan. The Meeting placed on record its heartiest congratulation to all the constituent unions and their membership for the massive participation in all the agitation programmes held on the day of one day strike on 12th November and also in the Relay Zonal Strikes from 2nd December to 5th December 2014 and for making these strike action a stupentdous success . The meeting expressed its dissatisfaction on the casual attitude of I.B.A. even to the deep resentment of the employees and officers over the undue delay in setting the demands for wage revision and also exoressed its displeasure over the Government's lack of response. The meeting look serious note of the action of I.B.A. in asking all the Banks revisit the mandate given earlier ot I.B.A. to negotiate and settle the wage demands of the unions and unanimously decided to lodge its protest immediately by calling for a day's strike on 7th January 2015, as the action of I.B.A. nothing but a ploy to delay negotiation process of wage revision . The meeting also deplored the indifferent and recalcitrant attitude of the I.B.A. in sticking to its offer of 11 % increase in pay slip components despite the flexibility shown by U.F.B.U. by offering to reduce its demand and further negotiate on the same for the sake of an amicable early settlement . The meeting expressed its displeasure that the commendable contribution of Bank employees are being ignored and the legitimate wage revision is being denide even though the workmen and officers work in branches under tremendous pressure due to inadequate staff and also the responsibility in implementation of various Government sponsored schemes . The meeting ,after alot of deliberations , decided that agitational programmes have to further intensified in order to achieve our just demand for an early reasonable wage settlement and decided on the following programmes ;
ONE DAY INDIA STRIKE 7th JANUARY 2015, 4 DAY'S CONTINUOUS STRIKE ALL OVER THE COUNTRY 21sT JANUARY TO 24th JANUARY 2015 INDEFINITE STRIKE 16TH MARCH 2015 onwards further preparatory programmes will be worked out and informed to all unions and members. All the unions are requested to plunge in to action and make these programmes a success .
( M.V.MURALI )
Comrade ,we have been receiving lot many queries about the decision of single day strike of 7th January 2015 , We would like to informe the background which led to decision of one day strike . I.B.A. wide their letter No.CIR/HR&IR /XBPS-1/996 dated 2nd December,2014, had advised the member Banks to update their respactive Boards on the present status of the wage negotiations developments, its financial implications and if felt necessary, revisit the mandate.This being a very serious development was discussed in the working committee Meeting of Confederation held on 8th Decenber ,2014,at Delhi. The Central Office drafted a letter and sent to all its affiliates for onwards submission to the management of the respective banks to thwart I.B.A.s tactics of delaying Wage Revision and also to obviate the possibility of tinkering with the earlier mandate . it was also decided that the same stand would be taken by our Representatives on the boards, when the agenda comes for discussion .
Comrades, this indeed is a very grave development which can not be ignored . The UFBU Constituents met in Mumbai , on 17th Decenbaer 2014, subsequent to conciliation talks . One of the constituent of UFBU apprised of having taken a decision to call for one day strike on this issue and wanted other constituents to join the strike . We expressed our view and apprehensions over the effectiveness of one day strike , as the issue would have been placed and discussed in many banks Boards by then, Since the affiliate was firm to go on one day strike in first week of January ,2015.UFBU decided to observe the strike on 7th January ,2015,for the sake of solidarity and to avoid any confusion . Comrades , the call of our four days strike from 21st to 24th january ,2015 is unprecedented and unheard in the history of Banking Industry as 25th January being Sunday and 26th January a National Holiday. Consequently , the Banking will come to grinding halt for six days. Our membership have long being demanding an action like this , but comrades , for winning a bigger battle , many small wars have to won . A lot of preparations are required to be undertaken for making our call a tremendous success. A thorough action programme is required to be chalked out for preparation at the grass root level .Let each one of us make it a mission to make the strike call a huge success so that it impact shakes the walls of apathy of the higher authorities . This is our fervent appeal to each member of ours , to implement all the joint agitational calls given by UFBU religiously .
Comrades,you would appreciate that your Confederation is a very vibrant Organisation and believes in democratic functioning .Based on the various feedbacks of its members and deliberations held in the appex body in the Working Committee Meeting held on 8thDecember 2014, at New Delhi, our Confederation had chalked an agitational programme, which was advised to all vide circular no.2014/91 dt. 11/12/2014. We have already advised that the candle Light march on16/12/2014, in all state Capitals and major cities , was a grand success. We once again remind our memberss to implement the following calls, as already advised , in spirited manner.
10/01/2015 - Human Chain in all state Capitals and major City centers ,
17/01/2015 - Women Rally/ Demonstration at all State Capitals and major City centers. We also call upon all our affiliates to make preparations on war footing to make all above programmes a thunderous success and by issuing circulars as well holding meeting , must ensure that : Note of our member applies for leaves for the strike days. in case any staff has planned or required to go urgently on long leaves , he /she should be advised to submit a letter to his/her respective Bank that he/she should be treated on strike on these days ; To ensure that each member of ours must participate in the strike rally/ demonstration programme at the venue decided by the state committee of UFBU . Meanwhile , let us continue and intesfy the Withdrawl of Extra Co-operation' not only till our demands are met but also to make it work culture . Let us with full determination and grit , face this grave situation in which we have been pushed into by the callous and adamant attitude of IBA and totally apathetic behaviour of Government , We must remember that Power consedes nothing without a demand. it never did and it never will unless we come together to show our resolve to achieve our justified demands .
Do not relent ! March on !! March on !!!
