New Delhi : A group of Coal India Ltd (CIL) executives has threatened to go on 3-day strike from March 13 unless issues related to performance linked pay and new pension scheme are resolved at the earliest, reports PTI.

 The Coal Mines Officers’ Association of India (CMOAI) has said it may resort to indefinite stir if the demands are not met even after the 3-day strike.

“Significantly, all the Maharatna PSUs except Coal India Ltd have already been given order for payment of Performance Related Pay (PRP) by their ministries concerned…We are constrained to communicate to you our strike notice w.e.f March 13, 2014 to meet our genuine and justified demands,” CMOAI said in a letter to CIL Chairman and Managing Director.

The demands include finalisation and payment of PRP pending since 2007, immediate refund of recovered performance -linked pay advance from retired executives, immediate implementation of new pension scheme and removal of pay anomaly of different grades in general and in particular junior grades among others, it added.

Earlier, Department of Public Enterprises had strongly objected to the Coal Ministry’s proposal on performance related pay, stating that it will have wider ramifications as other PSUs may seek similar dispensation.
