- Mass Holiday
of these agitations in brief are:
As an outcome of agitation in seventies:
3.)The 1982 Asiad agitation brought wider unity among all the employees of AIR & Doordarshan irrespective of their sections/cadres. This agitation gave an impetus for other Central Govt. Employees Associations to pursue, with vigor, the issue of Bonus. (Till then only the employees of Indian Railways and Postal & Telegraph were getting the bonus). Afterwards the bonus is being given to all Central Govt. Employees.
The eighties witnessed the attempts from the management to remove stagnation
in engineering cadres, though in a lukewarm manner. However, a large
number of engineering employees were benefited by subsequent promotion.
The late eighties saw rapid expansion of Television network in India
and brought the challenge for the Association to fight for staff welfare
at a number of Low Power Transmitters(TV relay centres).
6.) Then came the decade of struggle for the pay revision of engineering cadres, which was steered with courage and determination. Even though not fully satisfied, the settlement has came one year back and now the Association is striving for the fulfilling of the left out points of some cadres.
