Really Shocking news we will be coming back shortly with our views on 11th Bipartite

For detailed analysis please read the following post


The following is unconfirmed message please wait for further details

Saturday, 29.09.2018 at IBA Office, Cuffe Parade, Mumbai.
On behalf of IBA, the following officials attended the meeting.
1. Shri. R K Thakkar, Chairman of Negotiating Committee
2. Shri. Shyam Srinivasan, CEO, Federal Bank
3. Shri. Rajkumar Rai G, CEO, UBI
4. Shri. Prashant Kumar, DMD, SBI.
IBA team made it clear to Unions that Banks are not in a capacity to pay more than 6% hike in wages. IBA did not go beyond 6% offer they made during last Negotiating Committee Meeting.
Shri. Prashant Kumar, DMD of SBI gave power point presentation on a New formula devised by IBA.
Accordingly, all member banks are to be categorised in three (3) categories, i.e., A,B,C.
Categorisation will be based on certain parameters as revealed by individual bank’s Balance-sheets.
IBA says they ‘Desire Shift’ in pay outs by Banks. The intent of IBA is to allow each Bank to pay its employees as per the Bank’s capacity to pay.
For building the capacity to bear the load of payment to staff, the individual Banks will have to perform to a certain level.
Traditional Practice was:
1. Wage revision every 5 years based on industry level Bipartite settlement.
2. Wage revision is based on negotiations not strictly linked to Banks’ performance.
Proposed Approach Intended is :
*Adding an element of performance linked compensation over and above the settled pay structure.*
It will be calculated as under:
A. A performance Linked Compensation will be incorporated:
i. The value will be over and above the increment as agreed in the Bipartite Settlement.
ii. Will be computed annually after declaration of annual financial results.
B. Payable amount shall be CONTINGENT upon achievement of established performance criteria by the Banks every year.
C. Key metrics chosen for defining organisational performance on following parameters.
• Operating Profit
• Return on Assets
D. Payout rate to be related to performance based Tiering, on chosen metrics
For the FY 2017-18 the categorisation comes as under:
Operating Profit wise
A. Indian Bank
Vijaya Bank
Return of Assets
A. Indian Bank
Vijaya Bank
C. Bank of Maharashtra
Bank of Baroda
Canara Bank
On this new shocking proposal of IBA I reacted: ‘Not Acceptable. There should be Uniform Pay in all Banks’
As per the indications by merging DA as on 01.11.2016 the present basics will be constructed and then loading will be applied.
Since, the new approach is intended by IBA, we are going to study their proposal in detail and then react to it by way of circular. But our stand is *“NOT ACCEPTABLE. There should be Uniform Pay in all Banks.

    We are public sector entity which relentlessly carries out all the useful and useless schemes of government’s at central and state level wasting most of our We are public sector entity which relentlessly carries out all the useful and useless schemes of government’s at central and state level wasting most of our productive time, so how come only banks become a loss making entities when no other public sector or nationalised entities are considered on same lines. This is a ploy to privatise PSU’s and loot the public money and national treasure under the skin of privatisation.
