Subburathinam

subburathinam: In any organisation, many many employees prefer to remain outside the control and membership of any union. When a wage agreement arrives, no question is raised as to whether u r a member.

The wage agreement is for all, though negotiations are done with recognized unions only. So, any union recognised notionally represents all employees, not its members alone.

I have a good many number of colleagues who preferred to remain outside the Fedn for good reasons. A leader envisions good of the people in entirety. Not to his chelas. I write this with a heavy heart.

Secondly, LIC implemented wage revisions for all employees, not for only members of Associations with whom they conducted negotiations. Any decision conveying an enhanced benefit must encompass all.

Having a motto, YOGAKSHEMAM VAHAMYAHAM, LIC now says probably GNS kshemam vahaymaham. Let me add I am not a beneficiary if 100% neutralsation comes for pre 97 retirees. But I felt it was just as it tended to remove anomalies amongst pensioners. Not GNS and orgn dividing even pre 97 retirees appears to be inhuman. I want to be enlightened as to the exact facts of what exactly goes on NOW.

GNS and our orgn appear to divide even pre 1997 retirees. This is to say the least heart breaking. Let wisdom prevail on all sides.
