Quarterly Report of the Activities in Western Zone
Dear Comrades,
On behalf of the AILRSA – BCT division – Western Railway I hereby wish all of you a very Happy New Year 2009.
If we look into the recent past we have been fighting to save our hard earned rights and privileges like the Pay Element and the Running Allowance rates, etc. And, the fight for right is still to be continued in the New Year as we have not achieved our goals of getting – proper Grade Pay, revised Mileage rates as per the correct formula and that too we must get it with arrears from 01.01.2006.

“Our all India program of 29/30th was so effective that we could be able to draw the attention of Railway Minister who learnt to be asked CRB to look into the Grade Pay of Assistant Loco Pilot. Prepare strongly for 6th February without being illusioned.”

Know the cause of your Death before you die…
Work kills more than war. (Extracts from Midday 15.01.09)

Death by over Work is legally recognized as a cause of death in Japan since 1980.

People with stressful jobs are twice as likely to die from heart disease, according to a 2002 study in the British Medical Journal.

Individuals who work over 48 hours per week have double the risk of heart disease, according to a 1996 UK government report.

Long-term job strain is worse for your heart than gaining 40lbs in weight or aging 30 years, according to a 2003 US study.

Approximately two million workers die annually due to occupational injuries and illnesses, according to a United Nations report. This is more than double the figure for deaths from warfare (650,000 deaths per year). Work kills more people than alcohol and drugs put together.

Rising stress at work is causing increasing numbers of young professionals to grind their teeth while they sleep, according to the British Dental Health Foundation.

A new study suggests that converting a five-day work week into a four-day one would result in higher job satisfaction and lower levels of work-family conflict. iTALK asks if it's a plausible proposition in the Indian context

Many of man's problems would disappear if we had a four-day week. You could spend precious time with your loved ones, visit a mall, watch a movie, sleep in the after-noon, and do all that you've always wanted to. A new research reaffirms that view. Converting a five-day into a four-day week would certainly result in higher job satisfaction and lower levels of work-family conflict, thus leading to higher productivity, says the study.

Researchers Rex Facer and Lori Wadsworth of BYU’s Romney Institute of Public Management analyzed the potential benefits of Utah government’s four-day work week transition and found that the employees were satisfied with their jobs, and enhanced productivity. they found that even though four-day week employees invest the same number of hours per week as their traditional work-week counterparts, they admitted to being more satisfied with their jobs, compensation and benefits, and were less likely to change their jobs. They also added that the extra time augmented family-time to more than 60%, which subsequently resulted in higher productivity.

STOP WORKING “EXTRA” at all cost…
Ahmed Afroz-Motorman CSTM.
World may move from 5 days work week to 4 days….
