Demands on 11th Bipartite – Workmen and Award Staff
11th BIPARTITE SETTLEMENT : CHARTER OF DEMANDS – NO. OF WORKMEN ; AWARDSTAFF
NO. OF WORKMEN ; AWARDSTAFF
It is pertinent to point out that with the concentration and focus on low cost Deposits, Jan Dhan Yojan Accounts to be opened and serviced, focus on small retail business involving more number of clients, implementation of innumerable schemes of the Government, etc., the increase in volume of work is more than proportionate to the increase in business volume.
But unfortunately, the number of employees have not gone up along with the growth in business volume.
On the other hand, the total number of workmen employees has come down from 5,00,000 as on 31-3-2014 to 4,79,000 as on 31-3-2016.
This has obviously resulted in higher workload on the staff.
Many a times, employees are required and found to be working beyond their stipulated working hours even to complete the day’s routine transactions.
Higher the workload – higher the wage and hence this Charter of Demands for upward wage revision.
