An internal meeting of AUAB also held on 18th October in online mode at 18:00 Hrs to assess the status after its meeting held with CMD and functional Board of Directors on 6th Oct, 2021. The matter with respect to the Twitter Campaign and other program was discussed in the CEC meeting of AIGETOA and Circle Secretaries and Circle Presidents. The status on various issues were informed to them in unambiguous manner and their view was also sought. It was unanimously felt that since there is an appreciable and visible progress on 4G issue as well as other viability related issues and further discussion on all HR issues are also open, it may not be prudent to enter into such action in haste. All were of the view that dialogue and discussion mode should be given preference as of now instead of extreme step of twitter campaign. If all routes fail then only we should continue with the programs. Accordingly, GS AIGETOA conveyed the feeling to the constituents of AUAB in the meeting and suggested to give dialogue more space instead of initiating the withheld program immediately. A fresh discussion should be held with the management to get their view on all issues and concrete resolution.
We sincerely hope the views of AIGETOA will be respected and all stake holders including the Management and AUAB will try to explore the options through mutual dialogues to find a concrete solution, which are the best way to move forward as of now. However it is reiterated that if dialogue and discussion route fails, we should not hesitate in starting organizational programs but any hurried approach should be avoided in the best interest of the organisation as well as cadre.
