Sub: Non grant of approval to the duly elected body of Vriddhachalam
Divisional Union by the SPOs., Vriddhachalam – undue delay applying
Dilly dallying methods – Reg.
Ref: Our Circle Union letter dt. 21.06.2013 a/t PMG, CR with copy to SPOs.,
Kindly refer to the letter cited , the copy of which is submitted herewith for your kind perusal.
The Divisional Conference of AIPEU GR.C, Vriddhachalam Divisional Branch was conducted on 09.06.2013 at Mangalampet/Vriddhachalam Division in the presence of the Circle Office bearer/Regional Secretary of our Union. The list of elected office bearers is received at Circle Union end from one Sri. A. Manoharan, with copy to the Divisional administration, requesting for extending TU facilities. Official observer has also attended and submitted his report, in which no dispute is recorded.
Though the list of elected office bearers were submitted by the duly elected Secretary to the SPOs., Vriddhachalam on the next day itself , the SPOs., did not extend trade union facility to the elected body. This matter was reported to the knowledge of the Circle Union and in turn we have enquired with the Divl. admn. and they asked an approval letter from the Circle Union . In turn we have sent the letter cited under reference with a specific request for approval.
But no reply received from any end till date. On enquiring of the issue again with the R.O., they replied that one member has raised a complaint about the validity of a single member who has voted in the election and they reported that , this factor should be verified through field authorities. But no enquiry was conducted for the past two months, to till date. This matter was again taken up by our Regional Secretary with the R.O. and they replied that this case was referred to C.O. Again , we have approached the C.O. and they replied that the papers were sent back to SPOs., Vridhachalam for enquiry and to report.
Though kept fully dark on this matter, on getting oral information from the sources, our Divisional secretary again given a detailed report on this with the SPOs., Vriddhachalam on 24.07.2013 alongwith the connected documents, which clears the picture on the issue. The copy of his letter and the documents so submitted , are enclosed herewith for your kind reference.
Actually there is no issue and it is only a non issue. A member Smt. P. Maheswari, who was lifted from LR PA during the end of May 2013, was shown posted to Tirukoilur HO. Being LRPA then, her pay and allowances were drawn at Vriddhachalam HO till April 2013 and her subscriptions were recovered at Vriddhachalam HO till that month. At Tirukoilur HO her subscription was not recovered from her pay during the month of May 2013. This is the administrative fault of DDO, Tirukoilur .
Hence, during the month of June 2013 ie on 30.06.2013 her subscriptions for two months were deducted at Tirukoilur HO from her pay. Simply for the reason that the subscription was not recovered during May 2013 at Tirukoilur HO, by the DDO, the said Smt. P. Maheswari was termed by the complainant as a non member. It is an utter false report and even based on our Constitution, a member can be treated as a non member , only if he is a defaulter for three consecutive months .
Having no other go, we bring this petty matter to the kind personal notice of the Chief PMG,TN for taking immediate suitable action so as to grant recognition to the duly elected body immediately.
