TN Sugar mill employees demand wage revision

Namakkal: The non-common cadre system (non-CCS) employees of sugar mills in the state have urged the state government to implement the recommendations of the Rajeev Ranjan committee.

They claimed that they would get revised salary if the state government implements the recommendations of the committee.

“The categories that were included in the CCS are getting pay on par with government pay while non-CCS employees are getting wage board pay,” president of the confederation of trade unions of cooperative and public-sector sugar mills K Elavari said. He said the dual wage system has been followed since 1985.

“Even after abolishing the CCS, the pay scale of CCS officers was protected by allowing them to continue to enjoy the same benefits under the erstwhile system,” Elavari said.

The then chief minister M Karunanidhi formed a seven-member high-level committee headed by IAS officer Rajeev Ranjan on March 11 to remove the wage disparity between CCS and non-CCS employees.

The committee handed over its recommendations to the state government on August 1, 2011. “The then AIADMK government discarded the report,” he alleged.

“The committee recommended to fix wages of all employees as per government pattern,” Elavari added. “The sugar mill employees are struggling to make ends meet. It would be grateful if chief minister M K Stalin fulfills our long-pending demand of implementing the recommendations of Rajeev Ranjan committee,” Elavari said.
