48 hours nationwide strike of
Central Government Employees on
12th &13th FEB 2014
Why this strike?
The Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers (CCGEW) and National Federation of Atomic Energy Employees (NFAEE) have given a call to observe strike on 12th and 13th of February 2014 to pursue the 15 point charter of demands including constitution of 7th CPC and effective date of pay revision from 1.1.2014, merger of DA for all purposes, grant of interim relief, Compassionate Appointment, Revision of OTA and Night Duty Allowance, Rescind the PFRDA Act etc. An obvious question should have rise in the mind of each member and well-wishers of Union/Federation that in which background this important decision has arrived by the Confederation.
For us strike is always a last resort to express our anguish, generally we never prefer for the same. After formulating the Charter of Demand, the Confederation had conducted series of campaign/action programmes like a March to Parliament on 26th July 2012 and one day successful token strike of Central Government Employees on 12-12-12. The strike was an eye opener not only to the government but for other Central Government organisations like Railways and Defence and the Railways and Defence Federations also started to demand the pay revision, interim relief, merger of DA, withdrawal of PFRDA Act, etc. at last the government announced setting up of VII-Central Pay Commission in the month of September 2013.
After the debacle in the recent held assembly election in Delhi and other states, UPA – II Government not showing any effort to constitute the Pay Commission. Against the inaction of the Government, Confederation had conducted series of action programme like a parliament march on 12th December 2013, evening Dharna on 19th December 2013 & all India relay Dharna programme in the first week of January 2014 across the country followed by day long dharma at ‘Jandar Mantar’ New Delhi by leaders of CCGEW and affiliate Federations on 9th January 2014. All the sincere efforts of the Confederation for a negotiated settlement on the charter of demands could not succeeded due to the above attitude of the Government.
Considering the political situation of the country and the forthcoming parliament election, the issues pertaining to the constitution of 7th pay commission, merger of DA and grant of interim relief etc., Confederation decided to strengthen the campaign and industrial action programme as the government has not been declared the constitution of the pay commission before the election then the new Government will take its own time to prioritise the issues and delay the to constitute the pay commission which will result the pay revision of the central government employees.
In the above circumstances we have no other alternative than going on strike to compel the Government for a negotiated settlement. In that back ground Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers convened its extended National Executive meeting at New Delhi on 10th January 2014 and unanimously decided to go for 48 hours nationwide strike by Central Government Employees.
National Federation of Atomic Energy Employees being an affiliate of CCGEW endorsed the call and decided to join in two day strikes. Accordingly NFAEE and all affiliates of NFAEE has been served the Notice to the Department and the concerned unit respectively for two day strike.
The participation of each and every employee in this strike is very much important to achieve the above goal.
We urge you to seriously consider the above cited facts and circumstances and take a positive decision to improve the collective bargaining power to achieve the result.
We further appeal to all beneficiaries of the above demand like the officers and well wishers to extent moral and logistic support for the strike.
We appeal to:
