STAGE 2 HOURS WALK OUT ON 29TH AUGUST2013 AGAINST VINDICTIVE TRANSFERS
You are aware that the 13th All India Conference of All India Civil Accounts Employees Association held at Kolkata from 9th to 11TH July 2013 took serious note of the vindictive transfer orders issued on 1st July 2013 against 5(Five) Senior Accountants as well as representatives of the Association (of the average of 50 and above) working in PAO (Ptg.), Ministry of Urban Development, Delhi to Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai and Nashik by the Civil Accounts authorities of Ministry of Urban Development. The Conference had adopted a resolution urging upon the Civil Accounts Authority concerned to review their decision of outstation transfer of Senior Accountants and withdraw the orders as it was against the interest of the cadre.
The Conference had also directed the newly elected National Executives of AICAEA to approach the authorities and take effort to resolve the issue across the table.
Accordingly, the available Federal Executive members had approached the authorities of CCA, UD to discuss the issue and settle it. After protracted effort, the CCA, UD held two rounds of discussion with the representatives of the Associations. In both the occasions CCA took the position that, the concerned Senior Accountants have been transferred due to keeping the bills pending and not observing the official decorum etc. etc. Moreover, the situation has been further complicated due to approaching the honorable Minister of State for Finance and Minister for Urban Development by some of the individuals transferred. Now, the orders shall be implemented as the Ministers have been briefed and their approval has been taken. However, the concerned Senior Accountants shall be brought back to Delhi after few months.
We had categorically requested the CCA, UD to initiate disciplinary action against the persons concerned if they have violated the rules. But till they are proved guilty, they should not be imposed punishment in the form of transfers through wastage of public money. Moreover, outstation transfer being against the interest of the employees altogether, it is untenable.
Our Branches of Delhi had verified the authenticity of allegation leveled against the five Senior Accountants. They reported us that all the members of the Unit concerned informed the Branch representatives that the allegations are false and the said senior most Senior Accountants have been victimized by the administration for taking principled stand.
Due to the adamant stand of the CCA, UD, intervention of CGA was sought by us. CGA had discussed the matter with Secretary General in presence of CCA, UD and advised both to settle the problem through mutual dialogue.
In the meantime, the affected persons had also met the authorities of Ministry of UD and represented for reconsideration of their transfers.
But CCA, UD has not honored the advice of CGA or considered the representations of any of the Senior Accountants while he re-transferred 9(nine) other Senior Accountants who were transferred to different PAOs locally during the period under the same or parallel orders.
The attitude of CCA, UD is thus vindictive, anti-Association and totally against the interest of the Civil Accounts Employees. We are therefore, having no alternative but to resort to organizational action.
It was decided that, all Branches of the country shall hold day long Dharna on 21st August 2013 preferably in front of the UD Unit of the station and forward resolution to the Controller General of Accounts and CCA UD urging upon them to resolve the across the table.
Now we have decided to stage two hours walkout on 29th August 2013 to protect our interst altogather. participate and make the programme a grand success.
