Comrades holding of a conference is a mammoth task and The time left at our disposal is very short and lot of work is to be done in this regard. First of all we are to mobilize funds for the conference. It is well within your knowledge that our organization normally do not collect any money from members except monthly subscription. Holding of a conference is so much expensive programme so, we require lot of funds for this purpose , this time it has been decided to collect amount from our members as per detail given below:
Clerical (Including Special Assistants and Head Cashiers) Rs.1000.00
Sub Staff Rs. 500.00
It is first time we have decided to collect funds from our members, so that they may have a feeling that they are also contributor to the conference. It must be ensured that funds collected from members must be remitted to Central Office by 20th June,2017 by way of credit to A/c No. 01050100013635. All the office bearers/CC Members are advised to approach the branch Secretaries/Presidents of the branches in their areas to ensure timely collection and remittance of funds.
We appreciate all those units who have remitted the Conference funds in time and there are most of the units who have not sent Collection of Conference Funds to Central office so all the units are requested to remit the conference fund by 20th June,2017 positively.
As quite a large number of new comrades have joined us after holding our Xth Conference. It is necessary that these new comrades must be apprised about the purpose of holding conference. Senior Comrades at branches are advised to make the new comrades aware of the purpose and motive of holding conference. They may be persuaded to participate in the process of holding conference. They must also be made aware of the gains achieved by the employees by exhibiting their unity and militancy. Conferences provide a platform to strengthen and enthuse a spirit of militancy amongst its members.
Comrades 11th Conference is being held at a crucial juncture when bank employees are going to sign new bipartite with IBA very shortly. Besides the threat of consolidation and merger of banks, privatization of banks at the behest of anti bank employees forces is matter of concern. These all challenges can only be taken with unity and strength. It is really a mockery, that Govt, in the name of increasing size of Banks is talking of merger and consolidation of Public Sector Banks, so as to enable them to compete the international banks, which have larger base. At the same time, it is mooting with an idea of introduction small Deposit and Payment Banks, with a capital of Rs.100 crore.
Comrades Conference is the only occasion where we can exhibit our strength. Credit goes to UCO Bank Comrades for holding conferences with a unique success. With the holding of every conference, our union emerges with renewed strength and vigour.
Units which have not yet held elections of their units, must hold elections and intimate the name(s) of elected Office bearers by 10th June,2017 to Central Office.
Comrades from now onward, we shall be apprising you about the preparation and process for holding our XIth Conference with a traditional unity and militancy. So please gird up your loins from now onward and put all your efforts towards the successful holding of conference.
With Greetings and an appeal to remit the funds as earliest as possible onward to our 11th Conference,
