Message Board : from General Secretary : SNEA
Our tireless efforts during last few months in meeting with management at various levels on CPSU hierarchy given very good results. In the draft, most of our demands and suggestions accepted. They are :
Immediate promotion w/o DPC. All JTOs upto 2008 years will be promoted as SDE, all SDEs promoted upto 2009 will be promoted as Sr SDE immediately etc.
Further 2 years relaxation of service.
Decentralized DPC at Circles.
Uniform date of promotion and increment.
This achievements can be given wide publicity among all. Our demand is to have AGM promotion also time bound so that all the SDEs in list 6 &7 can be promoted together
Message Board : from Circle Secretary : SNEA/WBC
In the process of 1st membership verification of Executives as per Corporate Office order - Circle Office sent to SSA heads the list of Executives working in the SSA under WBTC, ETR, ETP, Civil, Electrical, T&D, ITPC, TF, TS etc for Checking and subsequently inclusion or exclusion as needed - please pursue with SSA head and make the list errorless considering all the eligible voters (Executives) working in your SSA , not only under WBTC but under all establishment as stated above - applicable in your SSA.
Our major demands and suggestions are accepted by the management to great extent:
Draft proposal on CPSU Hierarchy upto AGM Grade.
a) Time Bound Functional promotion to SDE/AO, Sr SDE/Sr AO and AGM/CAO after completion of 5 years of service.
b) Promotions delinked from seniority.
c) Promotions delinked from availability of posts, fully upto Sr SDE/Sr AO grade.
SNEA suggestions accepted by the management
1) First promotion immediately on implementation itself, without DPC, for the Executives working in higher scales. Example: JTO in E2A scale. Immediately he will be promoted as SDE w/o DPC. This will give great relief to thousands and thousands of JTOs, SDEs, JAOs and AOs waiting for promotions for years together.
2) For the Executives working in two or more higher scales, two years relaxation in the qualifying service for the second promotion. Example: A JTO in E3 scale. Immediately he will be promoted as SDE w/o DPC and he will be promoted as Sr SDE after 3 years of service as SDE (relaxation of 2 years).
3) Change of designation for each grade.
4) Uniform date of promotion, 1st January or 1st July. Similarly uniform date of increment, 1st January or 1stJuly. In future, anomalies will not be there.
5) DPCs decentralised to respective Circles.
Challenges in the draft CPSU proposal, to be addressed in totality:
a) Time Bound Functional promotion to AGM grade for the existing SDE/AOs having 10 years of combined service as SDE/Sr SDE or AO/Sr AO without linking with the availability of posts. As and when remaining SDE/AOs completes 10 years, promotion to AGM grade.
b) To get the CPSU Hierarchy upto AGM grade as recommended by the Khan Committee, processed first, separately, w/o linking with the promotions to higher grades. Promotions to higher grades are to be dealt separately, later.
c) Increasing the number of DGM posts to atleast 2000.
d)After implementation of CPSU Hierarchy upto AGM, processing the promotions from DGM onwards with necessary changes.These outstanding issues are to be settled. UF comprising of SNEA, AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA is committed to that and our struggles will lead to its resolution
