NFIR TO PROTEST OVER REPORTED REDUCTION IN NUMBER OF DAYS IN PRODUCTIVITY LINKED BONUS
The General Secretaries of Affiliated Unions of NFIR
Sub: Payment of Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) to Railwaymen.
In the wake of attempts to reduce the Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) by Railway Board, the affiliates are directed to launch protests in the form of mass rallies and demonstrations on 16 any such move. The cadre of NFIR should plunge into the field and generate awareness among employees to fight in the event of Railway Board’s adamant attitude to reduce the number of days of wages towards Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB). During the year 2012-13 Indian Railways has moved over one Billion Tonnes of freight while operating ratio was 88.8%. Hence there is no question of reducing the Bonus amount.
The President and General Secretary of NFIR have been invited by Railway Board for a meeting on 16th September, 2013 (Monday). NFIR has decided to convey our protest in the meeting.
All the affiliates of NFIR are therefore advised to mobilize Rail Workforce for massive protest rallies and demonstrations all over Indian Railways from Establishment level to Zonal level and also in all the Production Units and Workshops etc.,
