The Principal Office Bearers of Check-off qualified Class III/IV Unions / Associations of GIPSA Companies,
Please refer to our discussions in the past on the captioned subject when it was envisaged to hold discussions on review of the Promotion Policy for Supervisory, Clerical & Subordinate Staff, as suggested by some of the Unions / Associations, immediately after the Wage Revision exercise is concluded.
With the issuance of Notifications for Wage Revision, the Wage Revision Exercise is substantially coming to a close and accordingly, it is proposed to hold discussions with the Check-off qualified Unions / Associations of Class III/IV employees of GIPSA Companies on the subject. However, for a meaningful dialogue, it would be better if you could kindly let us have a list of your suggestions for improvement in the Promotion Policy for Supervisory, Clerical & Subordinate Staff, alongwith justification thereof before we hold the dialogue.
We expect your suggestions to reach us latest by Monday, the 8th February, 2016, where after, we would convey to you the schedule for our discussions thereon.
Thanking you and looking forward to your continued co-operation,
General Insurers' (Public Sector) Association of India

Dear All members
Hearty Congratulations for the successful notification of Wage Revision.
This was possible due to the persistent process of meaningful negotiations with GIPSA by our parent body NFGIE, Mumbai and our efforts for finalisation of same.

“Dear all, we should say thanks to our National Federation Leaders like Mr.T K Sathish Kumar, Ernakulam, Mr.Sujit Bagchi, Kolkota for taking lots of pain to travel entire country when ever GIPSA conducted meetings on Wages. Due to our senior/strong leaders hard work and planning we are getting this fruitful wage revision to all classes of employees”.
Also, we should express our sincere thanks to our Delhi Leaders Mr. O P Rajodia , Mr. Murari Singh Prasad, Mr. V K Tandon for regular follow-up with GIPSA and day-to-day updates, because due to such leaders only NFGIE is the first and only Union that has given authentic and live communication directly from ministry.
For getting the latest information, our state own person and NFGIE General Secretary Mr. P S Bajpai has played very crucial role and NFGIE we are sure will scale greater heights in future under his able & dynamic leadership.
Last but not the least, my sincere thanks to my Hyderabad and Vizag RO Office Bearers for making all arrangements viz., accommodation, pickup and dropping National Federation Leaders to attend meetings at Hyderabad as 1st round and final round of Wage Negotiations were conducted at Hyderabad only.
It is our practice that on wage revision we used to collect Levy on Arrears in order to strengthen the financial position of our Union. As you know, ours is the only Union among all GIPSA member-companies having membership in “all Classes“ with good unity and understanding among all classes of employees. Hence it is quite impossible to serve a sizable membership in both Regions of Hyderabad and Vizag and also to extend financial support to our parent body NFGIE. Thus it is highly difficult without sufficient and sound finance and timely funding to run the day-to-day affairs of the Union/Association. It is possible only through donations and voluntary contributions in kind apart from regular payment of timely subscription and membership fees being done by all our members whole-heartedly.
All those Units/members who are yet to remit their annual membership fees are also requested to clear their old dues/arrears by approaching their respective Unit Secretaries / Representatives for which we shall be thankful to all of you.
NOW WE REQUEST ALL THE MEMBERS TO CONTRIBUTE LEVY ON WAGE AREAS WITH A MINIMUM OF 2% OF THE NET ARREARS AMOUNT AND SUBJECT TO:
1.CLASS I OFFICERS - MAXIMUM RS.5000/-
2.CLASS II OFFICERS - MAXIMUM RS.4000/-
3.CLASS III - MAXIMUM RS.3500/-
4.CLASS IV - MAXIMUM RS.2000/-
WE REQUEST ALL THE MEMBERS TO PLEASE CONTIRUBUTE IMMEIDATELY ON RECEIPT OF ARREARS AS WE HAVE TO SEND THE AMOUNT HO NFGIE TO MEET THEIR EXPENSES. ALSO YOU ARE WELL AWARE THAT WE ARE NOT COLLECTING ANY AMOUNTS FROM MEMBERS FREQUETNLY AND FOR REGULAR TOURING/VISITS WE REQUIRE FUNDING OF UNION. PLEASE COLLECT THE AMOUNT AND DEPOSIT IN OUR UNION A/C AS MENTIONED BELOW AND INFORM THE DETAILS TO ENABLE US TO ISSUE RECEIPTS.
