With warm greetings,
MARCH ON ------ MARCH ON
The 74th Executive Committee Meeting of our Confederation was held in emergent circumstances at New Delhi
on 8th October, 2014. Despite the festive season, almost all the members of the Executive Committee attended
the meeting to discuss the undue delay in the Salary Revision due to the apathy of the IBA and the Government of India.
Though an elaborate report on the present International and National scenario covering the entire gamut of socio
political, economic and banking scenario was presented by the General Secretary; the major thrust during the
deliberations was on the Salary Revision exercise and a lot of concern was expressed by the rank and file of the
Organisation, particularly from the younger generation.
The complete detail of the various rounds of discussions, including two major decisions taken during the discussions,
were explained by the undersigned to the House and were appropriately substantiated by the President of the Confederation,
Com. Y. Sudarshan, who also takes part in the negotiations. The House was unanimous in expressing their anger, anguish
and resentment over the rigid and unjustified stand of the IBA and called upon the presidium to decide some effective and
sustained agitational programme against IBA for denying the reasonable wage revision to the officers and employees and
also for their apathy towards other justified demands like 5 days working and regulated working hours.
After the detailed discussions and after seeking the views of all the affiliates, it was decided that the action programme declared
by the United Forum of Bank Unions on 26th September, 2014, should be strictly followed by all the affiliates of the Confederation.
However, a deep concern was expressed over the delay in deciding the strike date. It was also stressed by the House that there is an
urgent need for intensifying the agitation call in order to strengthen the movement for an early wage settlement. The House was of
the view that one day strike will not serve the purpose and strike schedule should be fixed in such a way that the impact of the
same is felt by IBA and the Government. Considering the views of the House, the following action programme was unanimously decided
by the Executive Committee:
10.10.2014 -Black Badge Wearing (All members must tie a black ribbon on the left arm)
13.10.2014 -A massive rally at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi and all State H.Q. at 5 p.m.
Withdrawal of extra cooperation” i.e. No late sitting beyond working hours / not attending the offices/official work on
Sundays and holidays.“
17.10.2014 -Country wide protest demonstrations, jointly with UFBU constituents
Between 18.10.2014 & 31.10.2014 - One day dharna at all state capitals
(Date shall be decided by the State Unit of UFBU)
30.10.2014 -The Press Statements / Releases / Advertisements in newspapers to
mark the second anniversary of submission of Charter of Demand & Massive rallies and demonstrations in all State Headquarters
It was also decided that AIBOC will persuade the other constituents of UFBU in the next meeting (scheduled for 13.10.2014 at Bangalore)
to observe minimum 2 days strike in such a manner that its impact is felt by all the authorities concerned. The Executive Committee
has nominated one Office Bearer for each State to coordinate the action programme with the respective State Secretaries and supervise
the implementation of the programme.
Comrades, we have approached other Officers Organisations also for the joint action programme and will continue our efforts for a
continued and joint action programme by all the constituents of UFBU and in particular the other officers organization for the
issues related to the officers. We are hopeful that they will convey their concurrence in this regard. Meanwhile, we call upon
all of you to implement all the action programmes successfully as decided by the Confederation. All the State Secretaries are
requested to coordinate the action programme with all the affiliates in their respective states and make the agitation programme
a grand success.
All the Office bearers, Co-ordinators and State Secretaries are also requested to ensure that the call for withdrawl of extra
co-operation is implemented in its full spirit by all the affiliates.
Long live our Unity!
With Revolutionary greetings,
