No. NBOA.MUM/174/2011-12 09/04/ 2012
SHOW CAUSE NOTICES: APPEAL
Please refer to mass memorandum submitted to your goodself by the entire membership of NBOA seeking withdrawal of show-cause notices issued to many of our members for participating in the Mass Casual Leave (MCL) on the call given by the NBOA.
In this connection, we would very humbly like to bring to your kind notice the following aspects-
1. NBOA has resorted to MCL as the last resort only when our requests/appeals and all other peaceful way of protests failed to cut any ice with the Bank in settling our long outstanding issues.
2. That in spite of the call the NBOA has taken all necessary steps to ensure that the work of the bank of very urgent nature and that involving external parties is not hampered due to MCL.
3. That, NBOA has resorted to steps like MCL, striking the work and march to parliament etc.etc. in the past too on the issues of wage settlement and related aspects. And very humbly I would like to mention that fruits borne out of such struggles of NBOA have benefited all of us, including your goodself.
4. Never in the past such organisational moves of the NBOA have been viewed as 'illegal' or 'immoral' as is being made out this time.
We, therefore, once again very earnestly request you to withdraw the show-cause notices served on a section of officers and also do not initiate any steps which can be attributed to as reprisal of genuine organisational activities well within the Bye-laws of NBOA.
(Dr D. S. Chauhan)
