NOINO delegation meets Chairman

A NOINO delegation led by NOINO President Shri Prakash Javadekar, MP, Rajyasabha met Chairman Shri S K Roy today, i.e. 21st August 2013. The delegation consisted of Shri Dattaraj Prabhukhanolkar, Resident Secretary; Shri Manish Patankar, President, Mumbai unit; Smt Neeta Prabhavalkar, Shri Surendra Chitnavis, Smt Vedanti Gadkar, Shri Suryakant Gawade, Shri Mahendra Vaze, Smt Saroj Kurdukar (all NOINO Mumbai activists) & Shri Ganesh Kamath, Chief Advisor, NOINO.

It was a brief visit & the first by Shri Javadekar since Shri Roy took charge. The following issues were raised / discussed:-

1.    One more pension option:- Shri Javadekar said that a time-frame should be fixed for settling this issue as this was pending since long. The delegation also stressed that this issue should be settled before & outside wage-revision. Shri Roy agreed to the same & said that the management was working on the proposal to be sent to the government. Shri Javadekarji also assured that he would use his good offices in the Finance ministry to push this issue.
2.    Wage-revision:- Shri Javadekar said that it was time that the negotiations start immediately. Shri Roy said that efforts would be made to settle the issue of pension option first & then the wage-revision would follow. The delegation pointed out that though NOINO was not in favour of linking our wage-revision with that of Banking industry, already three rounds of talks had taken place, though the wage-revision in Banking industry was due three months after our wage-revision.
3.    Upgradation of pension:- The delegation once again raised the issue of automatic upgradation of pension. Shri Roy was not positive on this issue & said that the matter was sub-judice.
4.    5 days week:- The delegation also once again raised this demand. Chairman assured to look into the matter.
5.    Sabbatical leave/Child care leave for women employees:- The delegation once again raised this demand. Chairman assured to look into the matter.

NOINO will continue to follow-up the pending issues of the employees.
