Joint Administrative Council (JAC) of All Manipur Trade Unions’ Council (AMTUC) and All Manipur Government Employees’ Organisation (AMGEO) submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Tuesday containing 13 charters of demands.
In the memorandum, the JAC listed the issues faced by AMTUC and AMGEO and also appealed to the authorities concerned to fulfil their demands at the earliest.
The issues include payment of DA/DR doses at par with Central government Employees with effect from January 2023 onwards, to initiate arrangement for early payment of the outstanding dues to the pensioners/family pensioners, to extend service period of state government employees by another two years by fixing the retirement age at 62 years as it is presume that such policy will lower the existing financial burden on payment of retirement benefits, scrapping of New Pension System(NPS) and restoration of Old Pension Scheme in the interest of state government employees and immediate payment of Final GPF accumulations to retired employees and allowing withdrawal of advance and part final GPF of employees.
The JAC also appeals for payment of all retirement benefits including leave salary to confirmed work charged employees of all Engineering departments as provided in OM No.14023/7/97-Estt. (L) dated 7 October 1997 issued by the Department of Personnel & Training and DOPT OM No. 12012-3-2009-Estt (C) dated 28.12.2012 and service confirmation of Work Charged Employees who have attained the eligibility criteria under CPWD Manual.
The memorandum also demanded amendment of Notification No. 1/1/2019-FD(PIC) dated 07.01.2022, Secretariat Finance Department (PIC) to create room for the inclusion of Work Charge Confirmed Drivers in the revised level of Pay Matrix and to fill up all sanctioned post vacancies at an early date.
They also oppose preferential service extension for those officers working in Secretariat Services and other departments beyond their date of retirement and to conduct a meeting of the Minimum Wages Board for revision of the rate of casual and muster roll employees at the earliest.
It also appeals to initiate a policy for inter-transfer of secretariat service employees with their corresponding departments and to extend medical reimbursement benefits to retired employees as done for the ex-MLAs and their families.
