(vii) NFIR’s letter No. II/1-A/2018 dated 22/01/2019.
A copy of Federation’s letter dated 22/01/2019 requesting the Railway Board to review instructions issued vide Board’s letter dated 15/0612007 superseding instructions dated 02/04/2004 (as a result of DC/JCM decision) is enclosed. Federation had requested the Railway Board to hold
discussions at the level of Member Staff in case the Railway Board has divergent view on NFIR’s demand contained in PNM Agenda Item No. 3212016. Federation feels sad to state that though a period of over three months has passed, there is no communication, nor meeting has been fixed by the Railway Board.
Federation re-iterates that the Board’s order dated 15/06/2007 is violative of the DC/JCM agreement besides being arbitrary, therefore Board’s letter dated 0210412004 is required to be restored.
NFIR, therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to kindly see that the matters are rectified or altematively, meeting be fixed early to discuss the PNM subject.
