Subsequently, the Indian Trade Union Centre (CITU) asked the management of the Steel Authority of India Management (SAIl) to release the first phase of arrears as soon as possible. “Under the NJCS agreement, management would have to pay the first instalment of arrears within one month. Although four months have already passed, we call on management to release the first installment as soon as possible,” CITU National Vice President Bishnu Mohanty told a news conference. In an important step, the National Joint Committee for the Steel Industry (NJCS) completed the wage regime for non-executive sailing employees on July 1, 2014 in the presence of Sri C.S. Verma, President of SAIL. The wage regulations will enter into force on 01.01.2012 and would benefit more than 92,000 employees. The wage regulations were approved in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding of 25.01.2014 and the approval of the Board of Directors of SAIL as well as the release of the Ministry of Steel, Government. of India, approved. About two weeks ago, the Honourable Minister of Steel, Sri Narendra Singh Tomar, approved the revision of SAIL employee salaries, which paved the way for the completion of the wage system. Salary arrears are paid in two equal instalments. The first instalment must be paid by July 15, 2014 Similarly, another NJCS member of the All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) congratulated the Secretary of the Union for his nod, hoping that the Union`s Steel Minister would give his approval in a day or two. SaIl management is expected to clear the arrears during this month without further delay.
Otherwise, the union will be forced to meet on September 12. July from 7 to 9 a.m. to demonstrate for two hours in all SAIl units, an AITUC leader said. Metalworkers, who work in all SAIl units, including the Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP), now have reason to rejoice as the wage revision pact signed between union representatives and SAIl management at the meeting of the National Joint Committee for Steels (NJCS) on January 25 was finally rejected by the secretary of the steel union. SAIL has a healthy tradition of robust participatory forums and has maintained harmonious working relationships for over forty years. In SAIL, the revision of salaries for non-executives is completed by negotiations at the national level of a bipartisan forum, namely the NJCS, which has existed since 1969 and has now successfully concluded nine wage settlements. Among the signatories to the agreement was Dr. Sanjeeva Reddy, INTUC, Sri Tapan Sen, CITU, Sri Gaya Singh, AITUC, Sri Rajendra Prasad Singha, HMS and some others representing workers and Sri H.S.
Pati, Director (Human Resources), SAIL, Sri Anil Kumar Chaudhary, Director (Finance), SAIL, Dr. G.B.S. Prasad, Director (Human Resources), RINL and other senior management executives. .
