Welcome to EPFSA,
Employees’ Provident Fund Staff Association Kerala is a forum of independently thinking employees of EPFO in Kerala. The Association is in existence from 1964. In the year 1966 it was registered as a Trade Union with Registration No. 142/66. Sri A.K. Kuttimoosa was its first President and Sri N. Sivaraman Nair was the first General Secretary. Political stalwarts like Late N. Sreekantan Nair former Member of Parliament from Kerala and Sri Vayalar Ravi currently Union Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs have led the Association for a long time. S/Sri K. Vijayan, P. Bhaskaran, P. Jayaraj, A. Hamsa, G. Raveendran, M.P. Sivasankara Pillai, S.J. Prabhakar, C. Ramachandra Kurup and S. Jaigopal acted as General Secretaries of the Association
Employees’ Provident Fund Staff Association Kerala was an affiliated member of the All India EPF Staff Federation (Recognized) for a pretty long time. But when the policies and programs of the Federation became totally ineffective to deal with the real problems of the staff of EPFO and on seeing the lethargic attitude of the then Federation, the Association opted itself out of the All India Federation on ideological grounds and continue to be independent even today. Being independent from the Federation has not been perceived as a handicap for airing our grievances or suggestions before the EPFO management and has not dampened our spirit as a responsible trade union. In fact we had created history by way of conducting a revolutionary strike by working round the clock during 1994 and was successful in having all the attention of the media and the central office towards our demands and thereby sitting and winning the praise of all around the nation. We continue to hold fruitful dialogues with the EPFO Management on all issues relating to the genuine grievances of the employees of EPFO. Our doors are open for all independent minded employees of EPFO whether holding leftist, centrist or right wing political views irrespective of caste, creed or religion.
Currently Sri Ramesh Chennithala, President KPCC is our Patron. Sri Anto Antony, Member of Parliament is the President and he is supported by Working Presidents S/Sri Thomas Kalladan, B. Subhash Bose, P.M. Mohammed Haneef, Adv. A Shanavazkhan and M.K.Beeran. Sri K. Padmakumar is our General Secretary.
