WORKMEN STAFF : TRANSFER POLICY AND REDEPLOYMENT OF STAFF

 

20.1              WORKMEN STAFF :  TRANSFER POLICY

 

20.1.1       Provisions of Sastry Award for transfers

 

The subject of transfer of workmen staff is dealt with in paragraphs 535 and 536 of the Sastry Award. While paragraph 535 deals with the transfer of office-bearers of the union, paragraph 536 gives directions on transfers in general. The Tribunal has observed that transfers are rendered necessary by the exigencies of administration and that the proper view to take is that transfers are normal incidents of the working of a bank and they must be left to the discretion of those who guide the policy of the Bank and manage its affairs. However, to avoid the suspicion that discretion may be abused and transfers effected on considerations other than the needs of administration, the Tribunal gave directions on how transfers should be effected. These are summarised hereunder.

 

(A)      Transfer of Officer Bearers of the Union:

 

   i.                  Every registered bank employees union, from time to time, shall furnish the bank with the names of the President, Vice-President and the Secretaries of the union;

 ii.                  Except in very special cases, whenever the transfer of any of the above-mentioned office bearers is contemplated, at least five clear working days notice should be put up on the notice boards of the bank of such contemplated action;

iii.                  Any representations, written or oral, made by the union shall be considered by the bank;

iv.                  If any order of transfer is ultimately made, a record shall be made by the bank of such representations and the banks reasons for regarding them as inadequate; and

v.                  The decision shall be communicated to the union as well as to the employee concerned.

 

Note :  The directions given in paragraph 535 of Sastry Award regarding transfer of office-bearers of "Registered Bank Employees Union" mean and refer to a Union registered under the Trade Unions Act, 1926 and not to Branch/Regional/Zonal units thereof. (SASTRY AWARD)

 

(B)       Transfer of other employees:

 

The Award envisages minimum possible transfers as required by banking needs and efficiency. In respect of subordinate staff, there should be no transfers ordinarily and if there are any transfers at all, they should be confined to the State or the language areas in which an employee has been serving.  In case of workmen staff not belonging to subordinate cadre also, transfers outside the State or the language area should not be made as far as possible except with his consent.   Further the number of transfers should be strictly limited and normally it should not be more than once in a year.

 

 

 

20.1.2       Five year transfer policy

 

As periodical rotation of staff between branches and redeployment of surplus staff are bound to involve movement of a large number of employees between branches, it was considered necessary to evolve suitable policies to regulate the movements so that no room was left for arbitrariness. Therefore, the Bank, in consultation with the All India State Bank of India Staff Federation, evolved a transfer policy for workmen staff and policy for redeployment of surplus staff. This policy provides broad guidelines for movement of staff and seeks to serve the aforesaid purpose but does not, in any way, modify the provisions of paragraph 536 of the Sastry Award, which will continue to govern transfers rendered necessary by the exigencies of administration. The salient features of the policy are as under :

(PER/IR/6857 Dt.24.02.1983, PER/IR/16025 Dt.05.04.1984, PER/IR/17863 Dt.25.04.1984)

 

i)          Transfers would be made within the same Centre/Municipal/Urban Agglomeration area. The policy will not apply at the centres where there is only one office of the Bank.

 

ii)         Clerical and subordinate staff (all categories) with 5 years or longer stay at an office are liable to be transferred to another office.

 

iii)         The Central/Working/Executive Committee members of the recognized Circle Award Staff Union and their local unit secretaries need not be subjected to transfer under the policy as long as they continue to hold the position in question.  However, they will continue to be subjected to transfer rendered necessary by the exigencies of administration as hither to. The procedure as outlined in Section 535 of the Sastry Award will continue to be followed.

 

Such exemption is not available to office-bearers of unrecognized unions.  (PER/IR/4587 Dt.11.10.1991)

 

iv)        The  employees  will be  listed category-wise,  viz. Senior Assistants, Stenographers, Assistant Head Cashier, Assistant (Accounts/Cash/Typing) etc. and the transfers would be effected category-wise depending on the needs of the offices concerned.

 

v)         Transfer should involve movement from one branch/office/establishment to another branch/office/establishment and should be applicable to all categories of workmen staff (i.e. clerical/cash and subordinate).

(CDO/IR/CIR/21 Dt.05.06.1999)

 

Inter-departmental/inter-divisional movements should not be treated as transfer under the policy and the eligible employees should be transferred out from the office/branch where they are presently posted on completion of the prescribed time limit of 5 years.

 

vi)        The employees due for in-cadre promotion will invariably be transferred to another branch at the same station or outside if they have completed 5 years stay at one office. In regard to transfer of this category of staff outside the station, a policy for the same would be framed by Local Head Offices in consultation with the Circle Union.

 

vii)       Transfers of employees, who are appointed on in-cadre higher positions such as Assistant Head Cashiers etc. on the basis of Branch Seniority need not be effected under this policy except when considered absolutely necessary.  This is so because in such circles, some of the in-cadre higher allowance carrying positions are filled on branch seniority and if such employees are transferred, problems concerning inter-se seniority arise at the transferee branches.

 

viii)       Whenever the transfers are effected, the employees should normally be transferred in the order of their length of stay at the office.  Provided that:

 

a)         employees, who have attained the age of 55 years, may not be  transferred.

 

b)         those employees who are normally due for transfer but whose services are considered essential or it is not considered to transfer them for other justifiable administrative reasons, may not be transferred immediately but their cases should be reviewed subsequently and transfers effected in a phased manner.

 

c)         requests of employees for  retention  at an office on extreme  grounds of sickness, duly accompanied by a medical certificate from the Banks doctor/specialist or on any other ground of extreme compassion may be considered on merits. Their cases should also be reviewed periodically.

 

ix)         The policy would aim at movement of the staff from  one office to another in a phased manner without causing undue hardship or dislocation to the concerned employees.

 

x)         Nothing in this policy will affect the managements right to make transfers on administrative grounds within the provisions of the Award.

 

xi)         The number of employees transferred at a time from one office may normally not exceed 10 to 20 per cent of the total strength of the cadre at that office.

 

xii)        The policy will be subject to review from time to time.

 

20.1.3       Transfer of office-bearers of circle employees union

 

Whenever the office-bearer of the Circle Union., viz. President, Vice-President or Secretary of a Registered Bank Employees Union is transferred from a Branch/Office, a notice to that effect is put on the Notice-Board five clear working days in advance.

 

It is clarified that these provisions are applicable only when the designated office-bearers of the Circle Union are transferred. The office-bearers of local unit of the Union will not be covered by these provisions.

 

The directions given in paragraph 535 of Sastry Award regarding transfer of office-bearers of "Registered Bank Employees Union" mean and refer to a Union registered under the Trade Unions Act, 1926 and not to Branch/Regional/Zonal units thereof. (SASTRY AWARD)
