No.AIRF/55                                          Dated: November 22, 2010


The Secretary(E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Withdrawal of Board’s letter No.E(NG)II/2010/RC-4/6 dated 16.11.2010 regarding re-engagement of retired staff on daily remuneration basis for the post of Loco Pilots and guards

         The Railway Board vide above letter have authorized the Zonal Railways to engage retired Running Staff(Loco Pilots and Guards) on daily remuneration basis citing acute shortage of the staff and engage such retired staff to manage the non-running duties such as Lobby Supervisors/ Power Controllers etc. These unilateral orders have been issued by the Railway Board without any consultation with the Federation.
       The posts of Lobby Supervisors(Crew Controllers) and Power Controllers(PCRs) and Traction Loco Controllers) are of supervisory in nature and in the GP of Rs.4600(Rs.6500-10500) were earlier filled on promotion as a cadre post and now on promotion as a tenure post.
          In Southern Railway alone, there are about more than 120 Crew Controllers/Power Controller posts and this action of the Railway Board, directing Zonal Railways to engage retired Running Staff, not only deprives avenue of promotions to Loco Running Staff but also creates a precarious situation of regular cadre Running Staff placed under supervisory control of a casual labour by way of engaging retired Running Staff. This will result in serious discontentment among the Running Staff, and especially in Southern Railway, where there is not acute shortage, needs such a haphazard arrangement just because of a uniform orders of the Railway Board.
         AIRF demands withdrawal of the above cited letter of the Railway Board immediately.


Yours faithfully,

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary
