Charter of Demands of BEFI for 12th BPS
We are posted with information that a charter of demands for 12th Bipartite Settlement has been submitted today to IBA by four workmen unions, viz. AIBEA, NCBE, INBEF, NOBW. We are also informed that another charter of demands has also been submitted by all four officers’ associations.
The aforesaid four workmen unions did not involve BEFI in the exercise. Of late, one workman union (NOBW) and two officers’ associations (AIBOA, INBOC) expressed desire, in their own ways, to involve BEFI in the process of submission of common charter of demands.
We have already informed that, as per practice since our foundation four decades ago, this time also we formulated our own Charter of Demands from our General Council Meeting held at Kolkata on 20th-21st June 2022.
As per decision of our CC meeting held on 14-15th October 2022, we’ll be taking initiative shortly to submit our Charter of Demands to IBA.
