HQ ADRA Reg. No. 17903 AFF to AIREC

At Least the Bosses came down from the Ivory Tower

Dear Comrades,

Since the date of publication of 6th CPC report we have been continuously drawing the attention of Railway administration against the injustice done to the Running Staff in General and Assistant Loco Pilots in particular. The Grade Pay(GP) of ALP is fixed Rs 1900/- just 100/- above the lowest basic of Group C. Even though the qualification for the post of ALP is 10+ ITI, more than 50% of them are Diploma holders. They have to undergo training in different type of locos, General Rules; Subsidiary rules and is equally responsible for any undue incidents. Due to the inadequate GP and poor working condition, around 30% ALP’s are drop out during their initial training it self. Also the historical relativity between the different grades of Loco Running staff is abolished by merging the pay scales of LP (G), LP (P), and LP (M). Hence we demand Rs. 2800/- as GP to ALP, Rs. 4600/- to LP (G), Rs. 4800/- to LP (P), and Rs. 5400/- to LP (M). Also we demand the special allowance of Rs. 1000/- and Rs.500/- to be given to all Loco Running Staff.

We demand to consider TA rate of Rs.340/- for calculating the running allowance and RAC 1980 formula to be continued as yard stick for running allowance.

We demand judicial review of out dated HOER as agreed by the Government.

AILRSA organized a number of agitational programs from 23.04.2008 onwards. Out of that the 36 hour Hunger fast on 29.12.08 was impressive and Honorable Railway minister Sri Lalu Prasad Yadav instructed Chairman Railway Board to redress the grievances of Loco Pilots and Assistant Loco Pilots. On 17.11.08 our delegation met Member Staff Sri. SS Khurana, and on 06.02.09 met CRB Sri SS Khurana and he expressed his view regarding the lower basic of ALP and assured us that some improvement will be done within the possible limit.

AILRSA decision to go for indefinite strike was deferred due the Parliament election.

Our delegation met Sri AK Anthony, Honorable Minister for defence, and many MP’s and leaders of different political Parties. Sri Balaganga MP and Sri TK Rangarajan MP, represented our issues in Rajya Sabha.
As per the decision of All India BGM at Nagpur on 27.06.09 we declared 24 hours hunger fast in front of Janthar Mantar after a massive rally on 25/26 Nov 2009.
However Honarable Regional Labour Commisioner(Central )Sri BB Bhat Nagar intervened and called a conciliatory meeting on 24.11.09. From Railway Board Sri John Ekka, Deputy Director, Sri D Mallik, Joint Director and Sri Hari Kishan, Director Pay Commission attended and Sri MN Prasad, Secretary General, Sri L Mony, President, Sri NB Dutta, Joint Secretary General, Sri Jit Singh Tank Treasurer, Sri KC James, Assistant Secretary General were attended. The Honorable RLC instructed the Railways to come with their decision specifically on our demands within 6 weeks and next sitting will be on 18.01.10 and advice us to postpone our Hunger fast program. We conducted a massive Dharna at janthar Mantar instead of Hunger fast. Com. Basudeb Acharia MP, Com. Tapan Sen MP were addressed the gathering.

Now we have to intensify our campaign program. This is not a time for IDLING. If the conciliation on 18.01.10 fails we have left with no option but STOPPAGE OF WORK.

For explaining recent development we are organizing Zonal Convention at Prakash restaurant Hubli on 16th Dec 2009 from 10.00 hours.

I have received SMS from many of our comrades stating:
Official side agreed on proposal in cadre restructuring meeting held today Revised Percentage ALP (GP 1900) – 20%, ALP (GP 2400) – 80%.
My reply to all of them was: Hunger fast of 25-11-2009 and other agitational programs of the AILRSA were postponed after conciliation by the regional labor commissioner. Railway administration requested 6 weeks time to settle the issue. Now they are passing misguiding and misleading orders with the help of both the Anti-Running Staff Organizations.
For your ready reference I would like to remind all of you that our demand of Grade Pay for the various categories of Loco Running Staff are: ALP – 2800, LP (Shtg.)– 4200, LP (Goods) – 4600, LP (Pass) – 4800, LP (Mail) – 5400.
Also we had been demanding that the Mileage Rates should be as per RAC – 1980 formula.
We shall not keep quiet unless and until we get these demands fulfilled by the Railways Administration.
All of you are requested to please give the widest publicity possible regarding this recent developments.

Welcome To AILRSA....
