NOINO writes to Chairman on wage-revision & pension-option
NOINO today wrote to the Chairman, LIC of India for wage-revision and one more pension-option. The letter is reproduced below:
Re: Wage revision & pension option
The wage-revision of LIC employees is due since 1st August 2012. National Organization of Insurance Officers (NOINO) submitted its Charter of demands on 23rd July 2012. However, till now the talks on wage-revision have not commenced. The employees are restless due to this.
The 22nd All India Executive Committee Meeting of NOINO was held on 9th and 10th June 2014, wherein EC members across the country were present. The assembly expressed its concern over the delay in the talks.
The employees were expecting that some offer would be coming on wage-revision in the Information Sharing Meeting on 13th & 14th February 2014. We were disappointed to find that there was no offer forthwith. However, in that meeting, an assurance was given by the management that the unions would be invited again very shortly with some concrete offer on wage-revision. We are again disappointed to find that till date that has not happened. There is also no information forthcoming from the management as to what steps are being taken for an early & satisfactory settlement.
We were given to understand that the LIC management is making efforts for one more (final) option for pension before & outside the wage-revision. Nothing has materialized even in this regard.
These two issues are of utmost importance. However, the delay in settling both these issues has given rise to resentment.
We, therefore, demand that the management should immediately invite the unions for talks on wage-revision as well as other pending issues.
