What will happen on 03.03.2014 meeting?



For the past one year all aspects of wage revision are discussed in the social media.

Though all the comments do not merit due to dirty language or lack of knowdge about basics,
Most of the comments indicate that everybody expects a substantial increase in salary, and also ready for a longer strike.

At the same time I wish to tell you, that union leaders have no magic stick or extra ordinary power to get the wage revision.
They draw power from the backing of employees and their readiness to follow all the instructions/programmes.
Therefore please ensure the support from ourside always.

Regarding the percentage of increase and its impact on gross salary is not explained by any union in open so far. Only people like me try to explain with what we understand from the details. How far it will become true, we have to wait and see.


However, what employees expect in general?
They expect a minimum 20% on gross salary.

For example, a graduate clerk (rural posting), drawn Rs. 13597 on Nov.2012.
It should become Rs. 16316 on Nov. 2012 atleast.
(For Feb 2014 it should be 16777 to 20132)
I repeat, this should be the minimum.

Anything less than this, will be a great disappointment.

What happened during 9th bi-partite negotiation is still fresh in the minds of seniors.

If any union gets ready to settle for a lesser percentage, others should object and continue the struggle till we get a reasonable increase.

We should not be in a hurry to reach settlement before election notification.
For the the sack of election we should not settle for a lesser percentage.
Already employees have waited for about 16 months, nothing to lose if it extends to another 3 months.

There are other non-financial demands and pensioners issue also there to be settled.

Keeping all these points in mind, our unions should continue the negotiations.


With great expectations!!

We are ready to wait, but the next government can keep this talks forward? I wonder settlement can happen in this year itself. Why don't you putup chart for expected salaries after wage revision

thats just a trick to talk. there are numbers of employer and their unions . and they got high wages due to indefinite strike till wage improvement. why dont we. thats the hell with our union. they didnt do in 16 months, and we are not expecting them in future also. they are taking strike now. why not strike from nov 2012. its only a game which union are playing with bankers. why so late. are we so weak ? why we are not showing our power? we are doing work in banks timely . complete our targets. so do we have not rights in improvement of salary at salary.. its so shame on union. and i myself shame that i am the part of bank union.

Why we are not going to strike, today govt announced 10% increase da of central employee +50 %da merge.... Kya would sabji lene kisi alag market maine jate hai, Kya unke liye special retail market legte hai, Kya bankers ke bacho se school wale kam fee lete hai, Kya wo alag and special hai jinki salary jyada honi chahiye lekin responsibility or risk kam hona chahiye?? jo govt bankers ke sath ye discrimination ker rehi hai

Hi,,
All younger generation banker like me,,better you search other govt job.Union leaders are not helping us.They discuss their problems and issues only.They dont think about our pension and other issues.am also start to prepare SSC ,TNPSC,,,

Bank job is hell and if we concider salary its worse than hell...me too preparing for SSC CGL. Its better to be clerk there than officer here because salary is same and I can prepare for further exams

Union motive may be luring but raises questions for waiting foolishly after IBA with held talk on 13 february. Lets hope for best settlement.

It is a folly to think that union netas are for the betterment of bank employees.They are selfish, small time ,mostly uneducated persons.They think about their own welfare only like their big brother politicians.

Almost all officers are slave, we all know that clerical staff has always been observed 'work to rule' and they leave offices sharp at banking hours but what about officers, every one knows. no doubts this position has been created by ourselves, i dont know why officers union can not go separately for wage negotiations as service conditions vis-a-vis risk and responsibilities are quite different. While retiree are still having hold on clerical associations, who may have their vested interests. Thus it is right time for officer unions to think in practical ways otherwise they will start loosing affinity of their cadres in coming years

let me throw my own imagination.

1. Govt stands might get softened the way they throw freebies all around. 10 % da etc.,

2. Bankers are already groomed to the fact that 12.5 percent hike is a great thing.

3. Looking at the election commission not announcing dates yet, it could be the govt which is putting pressure on them to wait till 3rd march.

4. So the win, win situation would be a hike of 13 percent which is good from the union leaders that they did their job, for the govt that they resolved a major issue, for banking community they got better than expected.

so , My bank friends be ready for a 13 percent hike to celebrate or to cry in vain.
good luck

Dear friends,
It is shame to say we are in banking sector, day by day all privileges is being cut, if u consider salary , then we stand nowhere, it is because of our union leaders. strongly they wont raise our demands, that IBA is doing the stupid job, Iba should know without welfare, motivation & better perks no organization has survived. We and all of our frainds has good faith & strong support for better decision 2mrw. All the best UFBU.

mith80 said...

Union leaders should suicide if they agree with Iba about hike of 13%. I will resign the Union soon and I will definately suggest other banker to do the same. Kick the old Union leaders.

Anonymous said...

let me preface this by saying that I am not racist. but historically south Indians are a very submissive lot. their fear of authority and reluctance for agitation is appalling. and unions are headed by them . god save us .. we will be lucky if we get a total of 15 % hike.

Anonymous said...

O bhai Tu bhi bank mei kaam karta hai kya, lagta to ye nahi hai aur agar 13% pe khush hai to apne pass ideas rakh. Below 30% is shame on people like u & ufbu. Kisne kaha 12.5% pe bankers khus hai, tumhare jaise 2-4 log honge, Chamche. Isiliye Bolne se pehle soch....100 baar

If they agree for 13% hike what will be the basic pay for a start up scale1 officer..How do we calculate that?

Friends,
Both our union/association as well as iba/government are not actually bother about our problem/wage revision.
these people only trying to get maximum benefit for themselves i.e for govt. vote bank luring by offering mximum to central govt. employee as their no. are huge where as our is merely 1 million which is as per their expectation not going to affect their vote bank and same time for or our association they are only passing time and trying to become good for gov. officials. if really our union/association wanted to as wat they are talking then why they have not use media for our concern/updates as all even small organization sharing their problem via media why not us? why no they approached apposition leader and discussed with them, taken their opinion, convinced our demand and reality?
May god give some sense to this association/union people.

I am a retired manager of a nationalised bank (retired on 31 10 2013 ) after 38 years of service. I came to bank leaving my job in Central Government Service expecting higher emoluments and benefits. We were then branded as high wage islanders as almost all public sector/central govt: employees ( except a few central PSUs)were less than us. Now what is the position ? My counter part who retired from Central service who didn't accept any promotion (to avoid transfer to far off places) other than selection grades (automatic) is receiving 130 % of my pension where as another who got two promotions is receiving almost 175 % of my pension. I had to loom around tto far North India and Tamilnadu for more than 12 years where as these two fellows didn't go beyond two Districts. Again their pension will increase with each pay revision where as mine will be stagnant. The better salary at the time of my joining was due to Sen/Sasthry awards and not due to any bipartite settlement. There after in each settlement the parity went against us and ultimately we were drawing almost 50 % of our counter part in Central Government. Where ever salary/wages are decided by wage board/commission (like wage board for news paper employees , Pay commission for Central Govt: Employees ) better and higher wages are allowed. We have to suspect that the union/association leaders are playing against the interest of the cadre in collusion with IBA/Government for this sorry plight. Now Bank employees/officers are the least paid Central PSU employees in spite of the high risk exposure. A senior clerk in a Central Co-operative bank in Kerala is drawing Rs. 20000.00 more than a senior manager (stagnated )in a nationalised bank.

Now I predict what will happen. During the emergency period and after there was no any wage revision (bipartite settlement) for a long time (reason best known to all of that time). Now after election there will be a government at Center either under Modi (BJP) or under Rahul Gandhi (UPA III) or under a weak PM of a fragile third front. If Mody comes his financial policy will deal us tough and we can not expect a better revision (or can expect no revision). The association/union who are not ready for a standard fight even now when the atmosphere was very favorable will not dare to face a tough Modi or BJP. They will sit idle and wait for mercy. In a rule under Rahul Gandhi (UPA III) this see saw game will continue for along time and there may or may not be a settlement (The regime may go for banking law amendment and pattern of salary may vary. The UFBU is not strong enough to stop such regulation, not dare or not sincerely interested ) Where as if the Third front comes we can play a good game and get something. But the play should be tactical and sincere. (Can we expect the same from UFBU). If the MOF is in the hand of some strong leader of a constituent party of third front that also can not be expected.

In short we can not expect a revision for another one year or can expect no revision.
