The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,
Dear Comrades!
Sub: Meeting with Hon'ble Minister for Railways
Today I met Hon'ble Minister for Railways, Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu and handed him over a copy of our Protest Letter, No.AIRF/24(C) dated February 2, 2017, against Railway Board's letter No.2017/E(LR)III/Ref./RB/1 dated 30.01.2017, wherein Supervisors(Grade Pay of Rs.4200 and above) working in Safety Categories have been debarred from become office-bearers of the unions/federation after 31.03.2017.
I explained him that, on the one hand railway administrations wants all sorts of cooperation from the federation, on the other they are issuing such a letter wherein they are directly interfering in the unions/federation affairs.
Hon'ble MR immediately called the CRB and advised him that this issue should be resolved without any further loss of time.
In our letter as well as during the course of discussions I demanded immediate withdrawal of Railway Board's letter supra dated 30.01.2017, which is illegal and against 87th ILO Convention and having no ground for debarring the supervisors from the trade union in the name of safety.
Though the CRB has assured that, shortly needful will be done in the matter, but it is advised to all of you that we should continue our agitations till this letter of the Railway Board is withdrawn.
With Fraternal Greetings!
Yours faithfully,
