Our General Secretary Smt Anagha Sant wrote a letter to the Chairman today wishing him a happy new year. She also drew his attention to the burning issues of Class-I within the industry. The letter is reproduced below:
Re: Wishes for the year 2013
This is my first letter to you after my election to the post of General Secretary of NOINO. First of all, I wish you a very happy new year 2013 on my personal behalf & on behalf of NOINO. We sincerely wish that the Corporation rises to new heights under your dynamic leadership beating the hitherto negative trend. We assure you that the employees in general & officers in particular will leave no stone unturned to realize our common dream of being & remaining the best.
We have read your message to LICians for the New Year. We fully agree with you when you say “We can do it & we shall do it”. Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, the Central Trade union (the largest in the country) to which NOINO is affiliated, has always believed in “Nation first, Industry next, employee there-after”.
In the same breath, however, we would also like to remind you about the issues that are craving for attention. An early solution to these issues would go a long way in ensuring a healthy atmosphere in the Corporation, which in turn would motivate the employees & the officers to give their best. The issues like wage-revision, one more pension option, and recruitment in Class III are of paramount importance & need to be addressed quickly. The officers are also agitated & frustrated over the non-inclusion of some batches for promotion to the cadre of ADM & DM. They are also demoralized by the Damocles sword of “fixing up of responsibility” over EWP cases for their bonafide mistakes.
Last but not the least, as you have rightly said, the crucial quarter has begun. The working hours will get longer & longer now. Being a female officer myself, I would also like to highlight the security aspect of the female officers. Many female officers are left to fend for themselves in the most un-earthly hours after they finish their work for the day (?!). With so many horrible incidents happening around us these days, this security aspect should be taken care of in a pro-active manner by the management.
We urge you to intervene in these matters & bring succour to the officers. This will boost their sagging morale & further motivate them to do better.
