Report of the NJCS meeting held on 28th January, 2013.
In the meeting of NJCS held on 28th January, 2013 Management of SAIL offered to settle the new NJCS through a total financial package of Rs.500 crores under different heads of accounts to be decided by the workers’ representatives. Company expressed its financial constraints to offer beyond this amount to settle NJCS for 2012 – 2016. In the same line Management proposed 10% as MGB.
Unions firmly rejected the proposal of the Management outright. They opined that Rs.500 crores is too meager amount to settle the demands of workers in this round of NJCS and no effective negotiation is possible.
The meeting was adjourned without any specific decision on three important issues like NJCS, Pension and Contractor workers.
The date of next meeting is not yet finalized. The meetings of the Sub-committees for Pension & Contract workers will be held during mid February, 2013.
