J&K civil Secretariat Employees coordination Committee and Employees core Group discussed “burning” issues faced by the employees.
The meeting was held on Thursday in the union office under the chairmanship of Ghulam Rasool Mir, the spokesman said.
The meeting was among others attended by members of promoting undersecretaries, private secretaries, president(s)of lower Grade Union Maqbool Hussain, Assembly Secretariat, Mukhtar Ahmad Wani, Planning cadre, Parvez Ahmad Khan, Members of Coordination Committee, core group and Executive Members of the union (s). During the course of the meeting following two burning issues of the Secretariat employees were discussed in detail: “Restoration of 28 and 16 slots for induction into KAS in respect of feeding services of J&K Secretariat Gazzetted service I and II respectively and issuance of notification for change of nomenclature/ title of the union/Association as, J&K civil Secretariat employees union/ Association by inclusion of promote officers viz, undersecretaries / private secretaries etc.”
After threadbare discussion, it has been resolved that there will be no compromise for restoration of slots and change in nomenclature of Union Association which has been unanimously recommended by the union, the statement said.
It was noticed that there was every apprehension of diversion in the allocation of KAS slots which is otherwise in violation to supreme court judgment titled “Suraj Prakash Gupta vs state and others.”
The meeting, the statement said, was informed that some vested interests are sabotaging the process of issuance of notification regarding change of nomenclature of the union.
“It was reiterated that employees have in the majority voted and elected present union and decided to change the nomenclature of JKCSNGEU as JKCSEU/ Association by the inclusion of promoting officers of Secretariat services as members in the union.”
Further it was resolved that the administration should warn such employees to mend their ways who are working at the behest of “some middle rung officers as agents” to create fuss and indiscipline within the premises of civil Secretariat with the sole purpose of diverting the attention of employees from the burning issues which are presently at its final stage.
“In case these goons/black sheep are not curbed from doing anti-employee activities, there is every apprehension of law and order problem, as the employees will not tolerate such kind of indiscipline within the Secretariat premises.”
At the conclusion of the meeting, the statement said that it was unanimously decided that in case the government (General Administration Department) did not consider/upheld the recommendations of the union. “The employees will be left with no option but to chose path of mass agitation and boycott office work,” it added.
