The Secretary (Personnel)
Department of Personnel & Training
New Delhi — 110 001.
Subject : Implementation of 16 Arbitration Awards.
Reference : Minutes of the 47th Meeting of the National Council (JCM) chaired by the Cabinet Secretary held on 13.04.2019 circulated vide DOP&T OM No. 3/1/2019-JCA dated 13th June, 2019.
The above demand was raised by the Staff Side of the National Council (JCM) in the 47th Meeting of the National Council (JCM) chaired by the Cabinet Secretary held on 13.04.2019 while discussing the agenda at 6.4.13 Item No. 2/19/NC-47. The Staff Side demanded that these awards may be discussed afresh and methods may be devised to implement them. The decision taken in the meeting is given below for your kind ready reference.
“Reply of the Staff Side :
The concerned Departments, including DOP&T, are of the view that the Awards are fairly old and the issues covered have lost relevance after the successive Pay Commissions. The Awards are at various‘ stages of rejection and as such, the demand cannot be accepted. The Chairman advised that Additional Secretary, Department of Personnel & Training, may review the issue in a separate meeting with the Staff Side.”
The meeting with the Staff Side to discuss the subject matter has not yet been convened by the DOP&T. Since, this is a long outstanding issued it is requested that a meeting with the Staff Side may please be convened to discuss and reach a mutual agreement with regard to the implementation of the pending 16 Arbitration Awards.
Awaiting for your earlier and favourable action please.
