The General Secretaries,

All Affiliated Unions,

Dear Comrades!

Sub: Measures to improve safety on Indian Railways – Protests against the move of the Railway Board

I must congratulate all of you for holding massive demonstrations etc. at the Branch level on 16th as well as on Divisional and Extra Divisional Offices on 23rd of this month.

Due to pressure created by our rank and file at the grassroots level, Railway Board has been compelled to discuss the issue of Safety Categories Supervisors, working in GP Rs.4200 and 4600, in reference to their letter No.2017/E(LR)III/Ref./RB/1 dated 30.01.2017.

A meeting to resolve the issue has been fixed on 20th April, 2017 with the Chairman and Member Staff, Railway Board, and implementation of Railway Board’s letter ibid dated 30.01.2017, which was supposed to be implemented w.e.f. 31.03.2017, has also been postponed to 30.06.2017.

In view of the above circumstances, it has been decided to postpone the agitational programme on this subject, and accordingly, zonal demonstrations, dharnas etc., slated to be held in all the Railway Zones on 30.03.2017, have also been deferred.

With Good Wishes!
