Tamil Nadu Government staff, teachers demand Pongal bonus
Want new pension scheme to go
Members of the Joint Action Committee of Tamil Nadu Teachers Organisations and Government Employees Organisations (Jactto-Geo) staged a demonstration to put forward their demands to the State government on Saturday.
They are demanding a month’s salary as bonus and scrapping of the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS).
According to S.N. Janardhanan, State executive committee member of Jacttp-Geo, among their main demands was scrapping of CPS and implementation of the Old Pension Scheme.
Arrears demanded
“The government is yet to pay the arrears of the VII pay commission for 21 months for employees. We want the arrears to be paid immediately. Usually, the government announces bonus for Pongal on January 1 or 2 but no announcement has been made till now. We want a month’s salary to be granted as bonus,” he said.
Similarly, pay anomalies in the VII Pay Commission recommendations should be rectified. “All those working on part-time basis, consolidate pay, honorarium and fixed pay should be brought under regular time-scale pay,” he said. The members are demanding that disciplinary action against employees, who had protested, should be withdrawn. Their other main demands were a minimum pension of Rs.9,000 and wage revision for college and university professors. http://www.stategovernmentnews.in/tamil-nadu-government-staff-teachers-demand-pongal-bonus/ 2018-01-07T16:31:10+00:00 admin Tamil Nadu 7th pay commission,Pongal bonus,Tamil Nadu Government staff,TAMIL NADU Government teachers,Tamil Nadu State Government Employees,Tamil Nadu State Government News,Tamilnadu Govt Pongal bonus,VII Pay Commission Tamil Nadu Government staff, teachers demand Pongal bonus Want new pension scheme to go Members of the Joint Action Committee of Tamil Nadu Teachers Organisations and Government Employees Organisations (Jactto-Geo) staged a demonstration to put forward their demands to the State government on Saturday.
