Dear Comrades,

The CWC meeting was held at Ghaziabad on 17th 18th Nov’08. Chaired by Com, L. Money our president, discussed our issues, and on the agenda as circulated with the notice of the meeting. 13 Comrades took part in the discussion. In-addition 4 ALP who has taken initiative to Organize ALP have also participated and expressed their confidence in AILRSA and its movement. It is noticed that some of the General Secretary did not attend the meeting which only reflects the lack in seriousness which are to overcome in the interest of Org. and the Loco men.

A delegation led by Com. M. N. Prasad, Jt. Secy. General met with Member of Staff Mr. SS.Khurana in the Chamber of Com, Basudeb Acharia, (M.P), Chairman Parliamentary Standing Committee on Railways, in absence of MR, CRB who was not available and out of New Delhi. We expressed our serious resentment over the Pay Pocket of Loco Running Staff Specially of ALPs, not maintaing the functional differences of LPs by not allotting the in creased different grade pay. We have drawn his attention on the issue of Pay element as per our memorandum and rate of Kilometerage to be fixed on existing formula taking into consideration of enhanced rate of TA, pay etc. we also wanted a information on constitution of any anomalies committee. The discussion was very good in cordial atmosphere.

Member Staff informed us that the Railway Board is serious and sympathetic to our demands and will do, the best possible. He also said that our representation is being examined. On the question of Pay element he said that a team of Officer who examining all these question. He further mentioned during the coure of discussion it that depression in Pay of Running Staff is not as it was earlier, it come to 2% which was contested by us. However he said that the existing rate of Pay element i.e. 30%, 55% remains as it is. A Small Committee which is constituted for the purpose is formulating the rate of Kilometrage and Pay element. He has also informed us that Railway Board requested DOPT to formulate modalities to constitute the anomaly committee. Com, in face of above, discussion, all the rumour which is being now spread has no truth but is being done to cool down the resentment to allow the Railway Board to do what ever they like without any resistance. In view of above, now it our task to launch a vigorous campaign, strengthen our unity and resistance and with this consideration, the CWC took the programme as under. A letter of Railway Board for constituting Small Committee is attached herewith for your information.

After taking stock of the entire situation and giving due consideration of the members who expressed their views and opinion, the meeting unanimously decided the following programme of action against, the retrograde recommendation of 6th CPC as well as the decision of Ministry of Railway on the Pay of Running Staff specially of ALP of the IR which has created a strong resentment.


In-fact the pay allowed to Loco Running Staff is not commensurate to the responsibility attached to the post. Despite of the repeated representation and effort to draws the attention of Railway administration except a little modification nothing much is done which further enhanced the resentment and in this scenario we have no option but to agitate in order to persuade Ministry to resolve the grievances of ours will all sincerity and seriousness.

Taking into consideration of these compelling circumstances, this CWC drawn the following agitational programme and approved to the CWC.
