The Supreme Court today held that a woman employee of central government can get uninterrupted leave for two years for child care, which also includes needs like examination and sickness.

A bench of justices S J Mukhopadhaya and V Gopala Gowda set aside the order of Calcutta High Court which had held that Central Civil Services (Leave) Rules do not permit uninterrupted CCL(Child Care Leave) for 730 days.


"On perusal of circulars and Rule 43-C, it is apparent that a woman government employee having minor children below 18 years can avail CCL for maximum period of 730 days i.e. during the entire service period for taking care of upto two children. The care of children is not for rearing the smaller child but also to look after any of their needs like examination, sickness etc," the bench said.


It said that CCL even beyond 730 days can be granted by combining other leave if due and the finding of the High Court was based neither on Rule 43-C nor on guidelines issued by the central government.


The court passed the order on a petition filed by a woman government employee Kakali Ghosh challenging government's decision not to grant her leave of 730 days for preparing her son for secondary/senior examinations.



She had first approached Central Administrative Tribunal Calcutta for getting leave. The tribunal had ordered in her favour but the High Court reversed the order after which she moved the apex court.


The apex court set aside the High Court's order.


"We set aside the impugned judgement dated September 18, 2012 passed by the Division Bench of Calcutta High Court, Circuit Bench at Port Blair and affirm the judgement and order dated April 30, 2012 passed by the Tribunal with a direction to the respondents to comply with the directions issued by the Tribunal within three months from the date of receipt/ production of this judgement," it said.

             2.    All Divisional/Branch Secretaries, AIPEU Group-C

Dear Comrades,
                  
As already mentioned in the last month’s “General Secretary’s Desk” a Special Convention and Workshop of all Circle Secretaries and Divisional/Branch Secretaries of AIPEU Group-C will be held on 2014 May 26th & 27th (Monday, Tuesday) at Shah Auditorium, New Delhi,exclusively to discuss the P-3 specific issues and for preperation of the draft memorandum of AIPEU Group-C (CHQ) to be submitted to the 7th Central Pay Commission.  The draft memorandum prepared in the workshop will be placed in the website and also before the Central Working Committee of AIPEU Group-C (CHQ) to be held in August 2014 in Andhra Pradesh Circle, for final approval.

All Circle/Divisional Secretaries of AIPEU Group-C are requested to attend the convention and Workshop WITHOUT FAIL.  If any Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretary cannot attend due to unavoidable circumstances, one representative should be deputed on behalf of Divisional / Branch/ Circle Union.  Limited number of special visitors will also be allowed to attend.  Please book your tickets well in advance.  Please convene your Divisional/Branch/Circle Working Committees/Circle Councils before coming to Delhi and discuss and finalise all P-3 specific points to be included in the 7th CPC Memorandum in a most democratic and transparent manner.  Suggestions should be the outcome of collective discussion and collective wisdom. Active involvement of rank and file members may also be ensured in the process.

DELEGATE FEE:

As CHQ is holding the Special Convention and Workshop at New Delhi itself it is decided to fix delegate fee of Rs.700/- (Rs. Seven hundred only) per head.  Food (only lunch and Tea) and accommodation (hall with floor beddings and bath room facilities) will be provided by CHQ.  Delegate fee is reduced from Rs.1,000/- to Rs.700/- as the Breakfast and Dinner is not arranged by CHQ.  Convention will be from 11 AM to 7 PM on both days.  The rent of the AC Auditorium for two days itself comes to Rs. One Lakh Twenty Thousand (Rs.1,20,000).  AC is required as May is the hottest season in Delhi.  Draft memorandum prepared by CHQ will be supplied in the convention/workshop along with file.

Total Expenditure may come to Rs. 4,50,000/- (Rs. Four Lakh Fifty Thousand only) NO DELEGATE WILL BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CONVENTION/WORKSHOP WITHOUT PAYING DELEGATE FEE. THIS WILL BE STRICTLY IMPLEMENTED.

IMPORTANT

All CHQ Office Bearers and Circle Secretaries who are attending the 4th April 2014 Nagpur Confederation National Convention and also the 26th & 27th May, 2014 Delhi Convention and Workshop on 7th CPC P-3 specific Memorandum are requested to bear their TA/DA from their respective Circle Unions.  As the CWC is to be held in the month of August 2014 in Andhra Pradesh Circle and again in November 2014 at Jamnagar (Gujarat) in connection with the final ceremony of NFPE Diamond Jubilee Celebrations,  we have to pay the TA/DA to all office bearers and Circle Secretaries (CWC members) attending the CWC.  Paying TA/DA for Nagpur and Delhi conventions also will result in huge expenditure for the CHQ. All CHQ office bearers and Circle Secretaries are requested to co-operate and bear with the CHQ.

CIRCLE/DIVISIONAL/BRANCH SECRETARIES - YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE:

As we have to devote full two days for discussion and preparation of P-3 memorandum to be submitted to 7th CPC, we will not be getting any time to discuss the pending problems of Circle/Divisional/Branch Unions.  Hence there will not be any discussion on Circle/Divisional/Branch level pending issues in the Special Convention & Workshop.  However the CHQ want to consolidate all pending problems of Circles/Divisions (other than Pay Commission related issues) and the General Secretary will explain the position of each case in the Special Convention/Workshop.

In order to facilitate the CHQ to consolidate and reply the position / action taken in respect of all the important pending issues in the Convention/Workshop, all Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretaries are requested to fill up the enclosed Proforma-I and send it to the CHQ on or before 30th April, 2014.  Please ensure that the report is sent before the cut-off date without fail, ie. before 30-04-2014.  Please fill up Proforma-II also and send it before 30-4-2014, so that CHQ can provide accommodation only for those delegates who actually want it.  It is presumed that many delegates may hire hotel accommodation at their own cost.

ENROL NEW MEMBERS IN THE MONTH OF APRIL, 2014.

In some circles, in each Division, there are employees who are not yet enrolled as members in any union (Non-members).  Similarly some employees from other unions may be willing to join our Union.  Further many new-recruits who joined the department are yet to be enrolled as members under check-off system (Recovery of subscription from pay-roll). All the above categories of employees are to be enrolled in the membership of AIPEU Group-C in the month of April.  All Divisional/Branch Secretaries and Circle Secretaries are requested to make a special drive to collect the declaration from all non-members in April, 2014.  Declaration should be submitted in the same proforma submitted at the time of membership verification.  Signature of Director (SR) not required.  No other change.  Modified order of Directorate already cancelled and old order stands.  White paper application not enough.  It should be in the proforma itself.  Please note. 
                                                                                                             
Yours sincerely,

(M. Krishnan,)
General Secretary,
AIPEU Group-C (CHQ)

Dear Sir,

Sub: -  Terms of Reference of the 7th Central Pay Commission.

We have gone through the Terms of Reference of 7th Central Pay Commission approved and notified by the Government on 28.02.2014. We find that the Terms of Reference finalized by the Government is at variance in many respects to the Draft Terms of Reference the Staff Side had submitted to you on 25.10.2013 after holding in-house discussion on 24.10.2013.

At the conclusion of the meeting held on 24.10.2013, it was agreed that the Government would consider our suggestions in the matter and will convene another meeting with the presence of the Secretary (Expenditure) to iron out the differences, if any, and explore the possibilities of an agreement in the matter.

We regret to inform you that no such meeting was convened and no attempt was made by the Official Side to arrive at an agreed Terms of Reference. We find that the Government has rejected the suggestions of Staff Side for either taking a decision in the matter of Interim Relief, Merger of DA, representation of labour nominee in the Commission itself, inclusion of the Grameen Dak Sewaks within the purview of the 7th CPC, bringing parity in pension between the past and present pensioners, covering the employees appointed on or after 01.01.2004 within the ambit of the Defined Benefit Pension Scheme, date of effect, settlement of the pending items in the National Anomaly Committee etc. or referring those issues to the Commission itself for an Interim Report.

Besides, we are to state that the existing Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) Scheme, being a bilateral agreement, cannot be subjected to scrutiny and examination by the 7th CPC.

We, therefore request you to kindly convene a meeting of the Standing Committee of National Council (JCM) to discuss the issue, so as to make amendments to the Terms of Reference finalized by the Government arbitrarily.
Yours faithfully,

Circular No. 13                                                  Dated 2.3.2014

GOVERNMENT REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE MAIN DEMANDS OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES.

CONFEDERATION NATIONAL SECRETARIAT CALLS UPON THE ENTIRE CG EMPLOYEES TO PROTEST AGAINST THE ARBITRARY AND UNILATERAL DECISION OF THE GOVERNMENT.

HOLD NATION WIDE PROTEST DEMONSTRATION IN FRONT OF ALL OFFICES AND AT ALL IMPORTANT CENTRES ON 7TH  MARCH 2014 OR AT ANY IMMEDIATE CONVENIENT DATE.
SEND PROTEST SAVINGRAM TO THE PRIME MINISTER.

PREPARE for AN INDEFINITE STRIKE IMMEDIATELY AFTER GENERAL ELECTION DEMANDING , MERGER OF DA , INTERIM RELIEF , INCLUSION OF GDS UNDER 7THCPC, PARITY IN PENSION, DATE OF EFFECT 1/1/2014, SCRAP NEW PENSION SCHEME, SETTLE ANOMOLIES,INCLUSION OF LABOUR REPRESENTATIVE IN THE PAY COMMISSION AND OTHER DEMANDS IN THE 15 POINT CHARTER OF DEMANDs.

CONDUCT INTENSIVE CAMPAIGN AND MAKE THE 4TH APRIL NAGPUR NATIONAL CONVENTION A GRAND SUCCESS

Dear Comrades,

The Union Cabinet approved the Finance Ministry’s proposal on terms of reference of the 7th CPC.  We have placed the full text of the same on our website.  None of the suggestions made by the Staff Side was accepted by the Government. 

However, our concern over the date of effect seems to have been taken note of.  The terms of reference has left the effective date of its recommendations to be decided by the Commission itself.  A united stand backed up by struggles will enable us to clinch this demand in our favour.  Undoubtedly it has been our endeavours and the two days strike action that has compelled the Government to have a rethinking on their earlier stand of Decennial (Ten years} wage revision for Central Government employees and the date of effect as 1/1/2016

Unlike on the earlier occasion, the Government has not decided to grant Interim Relief and merger of Dearness allowance.  Nor has it asked the Commission to consider and make appropriate recommendation in this regard specifically.  As pointed out in our earlier communication, inclusion of a labour representative in the Commission being not an idea the UPA Government cherishes, for it is diametrically opposite to its economic policies and ideology, they have stuck to the position of sandwiching the Honourable Judge with bureaucrats.  In the light of the agreement penned by Com. Mahadeviah, the General Secretary of the recognised GDS union with the Postal Board to the effect that a separate one man committee will look into the service conditions of the Grameen Dak Sewaks, it is not surprising that the Government chose to ignore our demand to cover them within the ambit of the 7thCPC.   Our demands for parity between the past and present pensioners and scrapping of the new pension scheme also stand rejected. 

As you are aware, the 6th CPC (and the earlier Commissions also) had refused to entertain the demand for removal of anomalies despite Government referring the same to the Commission specifically.  Therefore, the omnibus clause in the terms of reference requiring the Commission to submit interim reports may not be of any help to us to raise the anomalies before the 7th CPC.

At the conclusion of the meeting held on 24/10/2013 by Secretary, DoPT, with the staff side on terms of reference of the 7th CPC, it was agreed that the Government will consider our suggestion in the matter and will convene another meeting with the presence of Secretary (Expenditure) to iron out the differences, if any, and explore the possibilities of an agreement in the matter. But no such meeting was convened and no attempt was made by the official side to arrive at an agreed Terms of Reference.

We must now react to the arbitrary and unilateral decision of the Government.  We appeal all the State Secretaries, District Secretaries and Branch Secretaries of the affiliated organisations and the State/District COCs to immediately send the following Savingram to the Prime Minister.

THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES WORKING IN THE    .......    (NAME OF THE STATION)/ OFFICE OF...........................CONDEMN THE ATTITUDE OF THE GOVERNMENT IN NOT HONOURING ITS COMMITMENT OF HOLDING DISUCSSION WITH THE STAFF SIDE JCM NATIONAL COUNCIL BEFORE FINALISING THE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF THE 7TH CPC AND DEMAND IMMEIDATE ACCEPTANCE OF :
(i)            Interim Relief
(ii)          Merger of DA
(iii)         Bringing the Grameen Dak Sewaks within the ambit of the 7th CPC
(iv)         Date of effect from 1/1/2014
(v)          Parity in pension entitlement between the past and present pensioners
(vi)         Coverage of the existing defined benefit pension scheme to employees recruited on or after 1.1.2004.
(vii)       Include a representative of the Labour in the 7th Central Pay Commission.
(viii)     Settle the anomalies raised in the National Anomaly Committee

While the National Convention scheduled to be held at Nagpur will chalk out detailed and phased programmes of action, we call upon our State Committees and Affiliated Unions to organise massive demonstration in front of all offices and important centres on 7th  March, 2014 (Friday) or any other immediate convenient date. Kindly instruct all the Branches to mobilise their members so that the demonstration has the participation of cent per cent of the membership of the concerned branch.  The State Units and affiliated Unions may issue pamphlets and posters and ensure its wide circulation throughout the country.

As already declared by the National Secretariat of the Confederation, we shall have to go for an indefinite strike action immediately after the General Election if our demands are to be settled.

With Greetings,
Yours fraternally,
M. KRISHNAN.

Secretary General.
