Will the National Council JCM get revived again?
The Joint Consultative Machinery has always been a bridge between the Centre and its employees. The National Council JCM Secretary has written a letter to the Centre to conduct the NC-JCM meeting, which hasn’t been held in the past four years. Some of the important points mentioned in the letter are given below:
“It may be appreciated the Joint Consultative Machinery(JCM) at the National level, conceived as an effective Negotiating Forum, has virtually become defunct as no meeting of this forum has been held during the last four years, with the result that, a number of major grievances of the Central Government employees continue to remain unresolved, because of which they are badly agitated.
The demands raised by the Staff Side for grant of Interim Relief and Merger of DA with Pay have been refused by the government.
The constituents of the National Council(JCM)(Staff Side) had to hold a “National Convention” on 11th December, 2014 in New Delhi. A copy of the Declaration of the above-mentioned Convention is enclosed herewith.
I request you to personally intervene in the matter, being the Chairman of the National Council(JCM), so as to avoid serious unrest and disturbance to industrial peace in the Central Government Services and hold discussions with the Staff Side, NC/JCM on these vital issues at your earliest”.
