All India Life Delegation represented by S/Sh. Manohar Viegas, Kalapi Desai and S.S. Jain, General Secretary, Vice­President and General Secretary of Co­Ordination committee Delhi respectively met with the LIC Management represented by Sh. Sharad Shrivastva, ED(P) on 25/05/2017 and discussed on the implementation of the directions given by the Supreme Court in CGIT case.
At the conclusion of the above discussion, Delegation put forth before the Management on the status of the following pending demands:­
i) 5 Days Week
ii) One more Option for Pension. Management admitted that there is no progress on the above issues.
iii) 2014­15, 2015­16 Bonus for eligible employees. Management informed that they are still awaiting instructions from the Ministry on this,
since they have answered all the queries long back as required by them.
iv)  On ‘Sign­out’ instructions where 2 factor biometrics has been implemented.
Management acknowledged the Protest Letter given by All India Life in this regard and
in reply tried to give a feeling that it is only connected for availing the meal coupon and so
‘Sign out’ requirement should be taken in a positive spirit.
However, Delegation refused to buy the Management’s justification and argued that
Management should refrain from implementing it, since it amounts to mistrust on the matured
employees of the Corporation.

UPDATE ON MEETING WITH LIC MANAGEMENT ON CGIT BY SH.MANOHAR VEIGAS, GENERAL SECRETARY, AILIEA

AIL 212017 (3)
To: All Zonal/Divisional Units:

Dear Friends,
Sub:- Our meeting with the Executive Director (Personnel) , LIC of India,
Central Office, Mumbai regarding implementation of the directions
given by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in CGIT case.

***************************

We would like to inform you that a delegation of our Association consisting of S/Sh. Manohar Viegas, Kalapi Desai and S.S. Jain, General Secretary, Vice-President and General Secretary of Co-Ordination committee Delhi respectively met with the LIC Management represented by Sh. Sharad Shrivastva, ED(P) assisted by two other senior officers at 11.30 am on 25/05/2017.
We wanted to know from the management regarding the implementation of the directons given in the judgment by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India for absorption of Temporary, Badli and Part time employees who have worked in LIC starting from 20/05/1985 till the date of the judgment i.e., 09/08/2016. Management said,” you have already filed a contempt petition against us.” to which we said since you have not cared to reply the legal notice and demand notice served by us , so much so even our Association has not been taken in confidence in this matter , nothing has been shared so far with us by the management, so we were constrained to file the contempt petition before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. Our main petition was decided by the Supreme Court of India in our favour thus conceded all our demands as enumerated in our main petition. We further told that the review petition and curative petition as filed by the Management were also dismissed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court. Workers covered in this case are very much agitated since for more than three decades have already gone when the case was raised and filed for adjudication. The copy of the contempt petition was served to the LIC advocate dully acknowledged.
Management informed us that lists of all candidates who have worked as Temporary, badli and part time during the period from 20/05/1985 to 04/03/1991 have already been sent to all the LIC Zonal Offices. They are scrutinizing these lists. It was very specifically conveyed by the management to our delegation that the lists of candidates who have been represented by the parties before the Hon’ble Supreme Court only will be entertained. The management has specifically stated further that the applications received in the Central Office from the workers in response to the advertisement given by the management on 31/07/2015 will be entertained as per rules.
On behalf of our Association in very strong words management was told that the said stand of the management is not acceptable to us. It was also pointed out that had the aforesaid action could be legally binding then the matter would have been over then & there itself. What was the necessity thereafter for the management to file the review and curative petitions before the Hon’ble Supreme Court which were both dismissed. We stressed that all workers represent by us from 20/05/1985 to 09/08/2016 have to be absorbed unconditionally. Management continues to take a stand that they are acting as advised by their advocates.
Our meeting concluded with the assurances given by the management that our Association will be taken in confidence and the informations relating to the case will be shared with us after the management has come to some conclusion.
We have informed the management that we are likely to submit a supplementary list of workers who are members of our Association.
Management knew it well that it is only and only our Association who raised an Industrial Dispute in this matter.

THE INITIAL FEED BACK ON LIC RESPONSE TO LIFE’S CONTEMPT PETITION

We feel pleasure in sharing our feed back on the response to the contempt petition served by LIFE General Secretary Shri Manohar Veigas upon the LIC management on 08/05/2017. Pursuant to the petition, LIC begun the process of absorption although in a manner in which utter chaos and ambiguities, anomalies abound. Those who waited for a period of more than three decades are being once again denied their rightful employment simply by putting irrelevant and ambiguous conditions for eligibility as a candidate for absorption as per the orders of the Honorable Supreme Court. The entire exercise by LIC management is against the spirit and soul of the Judgement, which says that permanent employees should be recruited to execute jobs of permanent nature in the corporation.
We have been receiving thousands of queries from country wide regarding the procedure to be adopted and we have also tried our best to define the procedure and other modalities as shared by zonal authorities of different zones to our zonal office bearers.
We also are awaiting the written notification from LIC Management for further action on the absorption issue. Till any written communication is received by LIFE we have to wait patiently before any more updates.
However it is requested that the Bio data form on this website be filled either online or downloaded and sent offline to enable us to assess the candidate’s claim to employment and provide adequate and necessary support where required.
The response to the initiative of LIFE in the CGIT case has been overwhelming and we are thankful to all of you for it.

LIFE filed contempt petition

Friends,

You are aware that on 22nd February 2017, LIC Management’s Review Petition was dismissed by the Honorable Supreme Court. However, even after a lapse of 8 weeks, LIC failed to initiate the process for implementing the Hon’ble Supreme Court Judgment of 9th August 2016, upheld again on 22nd February 2017.

All India Life went ahead and filed the Contempt Petition on 8th May 2017 and the copy of the same was served to LIC Advocate, Shri Mukul Rohatgi, Attorney General of India on 9th May 2017.

It may be noted that ALL INDIA LIFE is the only Petitioner to file the Contempt Petition and that too swiftly, forcing LIC to immediately release the list of candidates (though it appears the list is restricted & derived from Newspaper notification exercise done during July 2015).

 

Manohar Veigas.

General Secretary. AILIEA.

 

मित्रों,
CGIT में अस्थायी कर्मियों के समायोजन के सम्बन्ध में AILIEA की जानकारी के अनुसार प्रबंधन द्वारा इस प्रकिया को आगे बढ़ाने के क्रम में कल CO/ER की ZO के कार्मिक विभाग के साथ वीडियो कॉन्फ़्रेंसिंग होंना तय हुआ है जिसमे अधीनस्थ कार्यालयों द्वारा गत दिवस तक उन्हें उन कर्मियों की जो सूची के० का० से प्राप्त हुई है, उस पर उनके स्तर से उठाये जाने वाले तमाम प्रश्नो/जिज्ञासाओं पर के० का० उन्हें दिशा निर्देश प्रदान करेगा। ऐसा माना जा रहा है कि VC हो जाने के उपरान्त ही इस पूरी प्रक्रिया को सम्पादित किये जाने संबंधी अधिसूचना प्रबंधन की ओर से जारी समझी जायेगी।
तब तक सभी साथियों से अनुरोध है कि सयम बनाये रखे तथा फैलायी जा रही अफवाओं के मकड़जाल में फंसने से बचें।

2. That the Constitution of India under Article 142 empowers the Supreme Court to do complete justice so as to meet the situations which can be done by issuing appropriate directions despite absence of mere statutory provisions as the same would not stand in the way of the court to do complete justice (DDA vs Skipper Construction Co. (P) Ltd. and Anr 1996 (4) SCC 622).

3. That as such the Temporary, badli and part time employees have to be considered for regularization w.e.f. 20-05-1985 In terms of the CGIT Award dt. 18-06-2001 but the L1C continued to make such appointments by employing temporary, badli and part time employees against permanent posts dunng pendency of the matter before the Hon’ble Courts which Is an act of unfair labour practice.

That the Hon’ble Supreme Court has also upheld the validity and relevance of Tulpule and Jamdar Awards while upholding CGIT Award dt. 18-06-2001 made in ID No. 27/91 therefore each one of the concerned workmen are also legally entitled for absorption and regularization of services on account of having worked as temporary, badli and part time employees accordingly such employees are also to be provided permanent employment by being duly absorbed.

6. That the delay so occurred in the implementation of the CGIT award dt. 18-06-2001 is only on account of the acts of the LIC Management as such all the concerned workman may also be suitably compensated by making payment of 12% p.a. interest on the total accrued arrears of wages and benefits.

7. That it is pointed out that all the applications so made earlier by such temporary, badli and time employees in response to the UC advertisement dated 21-07-2015 are to be considered along with the fresh applications of the concerned LIC employees who have worked as temporary, badly and part time employee who could not apply because of filing of Review Petitions and Curative Petitions by the LIC Management in the Supreme Court of India.

That it is stated that all the workman concerned who have not superannuated till date shall be given regular appointment letters at the earliest and such workman shall also be allowed to join their respective posts while being paid arrears of wages along with all consequential benefits in one instalment and the services of all such concerned workmen shal be treated as being continuous.

9. That in case the workmen concerned who have got superannuated during this period shall be paid gratuity, PF and also all other consequential benefits which shall be paid without any further delay.

10. That the Hon’ble Supreme Court judgement dt. 09-08-2016 so made in Review Petitions of the UC Management In term directs for absorption of such employees till the age of superannuation and payment of back wages at the rate of 50% back wages with consequential benefits which have to be calculated on the basis of gross salary of the workman comprising of all the allowances like DA, HRA, CCA and due increments.

CGIT Case में LIC की याचिका निरस्त

भारतीय जीवन बीमा निगम की सीजीआईटी संबंधी उपचारात्मक याचिका निरस्त हो गई है। AILIEA के coordinator श्री एस. एस. जैन ने यह सूचना दी है।

AILIEA की एक और न्यायोचित जीत
