Sub:- Thanks for finalizing NCWA-XI for implementation and demand for consequent Pay-protection to executives to resolve pay conflict arising due to wage revision latest by September, 2023

Dear Sir,

It is our pleasure to extend our heartiest congratulations, for successfully concluding MoA for NCWA-XI and implementing wef June 23. It has been confirmed by Ministry of Coal vide letter No.55011/3/2015-PRIW-I/Vol.IV dt. 22-6-2023 at Sl. No.3. (Copy enclosed vide Annexure-I)

This letter No. 55011/3/2015-PRIW-I/Vol.IV dt. 22-6-2023 at Sl. No.4, has “further advised that the guidelines of DPE, in this regard, issued from time to time, may be followed.”

It is to repeat that, wage negotiations for workmen in CPSE are guided by DPE circular no. W-02/0015/2016-DPE (WC)-GL-XXIV/17 dt. 24-11-2017 on the subject “Wage Policy for the 8th round of wage negotiations for workmen in Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSEs)” which says that, “The management of the concerned CPSEs have to ensure that negotiated scales of pay do not exceed scales of pay of executives/officers and non-unionized supervisors of respective CPSEs.”

Our association (AIACE) believes and is also firm that the NCWA-XI, when implemented will, result into pay conflict of workmen with that of executives.

Hence, to counter the resultant pay-conflicts arising out of this Agreement, executives must be compensated by allowing pay-protection through Personal Pay package to them, so that their salary does not fall below the wage of workers.

As such, we request CIL for initiating appropriate needful actions immediately to provide PERSONAL PAY(PP) to executives and eliminate the conflict latest by 30th September 2023. Otherwise, executives may be compelled to resort to agitational path including strike, if needed afterward.

Thanking You,

Principal General Secretary
