BE THE PART OF HISTORICAL MOVEMENT
TO PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF THE WORKING CLASS.
The entire working class of the country assembles at the Mavlankar Auditorium New Delhi on 26th May 2015 condemned in one voice the Government’s anti worker, anti peasants, anti people and pro corporate, pro MNC rule and declared country wide protests and resistance through NATIONWIDE STRKE on 2nd September 2015 against those policies.
The unanimous declaration of the National Convention organized by All Central Trade Unions which include, BMS, INTUC, HMS, CITU, AITUC & other 6 central Trade unions, National Federations of all sectors and services such as Central and State Government, Bank, Insurance, Port & Dock, Coal, Steel, Transport, etc. condemned the Government for bringing sweeping changes in labour laws in favour of the employers, attack on social security schemes like Pension, Provident Fund, ESI benefits, Public Distribution System, cutting budgetary allocations to scheme which benefits the poorer people of the country, Not implementing the tripartite decisions of the Indian Labour Conferences (ILCs), bringing changes in Land Acquisition At, disinvesting profit making Public Sectors Undertakings and above all ignoring the Charter of demand submitted by the Trade unions.
The Central Government employees are the worst sufferers due to the policy offensives of the Government. The government has not accepted the demands like DA Merge, Interim Relief, Effective date of 7th CPC from 01.01.2014, removal of 5% ceiling of compassionate ground appointment, withdrawal of PFRDA Act and re introduction of old defined pension scheme to all Government Employees, implementation of arbitration awards, etc. Moreover the approach of the Government policy to privatization has been speed up and come up with Task Force committee Report of Postal Corporatisation, Bibek Debroy Committee Report on Railway Privatisation, Corporatisation of 41 Ordinance Factories under Defence Ministry. Move to close down various Central Government establishments like Printing & Stationary, Medical Stores Depots, etc, non filling of vacancies, downsizing the staff strength, out sourcing the activities, contracturisation, privatization, etc are also being implemented in an aggressive manner.
The impact of these policies effects the functioning of our Department also. Outsourcing and contracturisation has been become the MANTRA of the department by which procuring substandard materials and delay in completion of the projects happen to routine. Mismanagement, corruption, dissatisfaction among the employees, compromise on safety and security of nuclear installations and manpower are increasing. The image of the Department starts to fall down.
During the meeting with the 7th Pay Commission, the Pay Commission categorically rejected the demand of 5 years wage revision as being carried out in Bank and other PSUs and the demand for merger of DA and for Interim Relief. The corporate controlled media started to write series of articles against the wage revision of the Central Government employees to influence the finalization of eth recommendations by 7th CPC. Even the Finance Minister in his interim review report expressed fear about the impact of the recommendations of 7th CPC and indirectly warned the Pay Commission.
The hideous attack on the working people of the country including Central Government Employees should be combated resolutely in time. The anti worker character of the neo liberal policies and the capitalist class interests behind the policies should be understood and thoroughly exposed. It is to resist and repulse these attacks on the working class that the united trade unions movement of the country irrespective of the political inclination gave the call for a NATION WIDE STRIKE on 2nd September 2015.
Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers and NFAEE has been opposing it and had joined the mainstream of the working class in resisting the onslaught of the globalization policies. National Executive meeting of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers held on 12th July 2015 at New Delhi endorsed the call by Central Trade Unions and decided to join the One day Strike on 2nd September 2015 and appealed to affiliates to participate in the Industrial Action.
The General Council Meeting of NFAEE held at Mumbai on 20th & 21st July 2015 in which 23 affiliates were participated unanimously resolved to endorse the Call given by the Confederation and decided to join in the NATIONWIDE one day Strike on 2nd September 2015 and to serve the notice to the Department on 11th August 2015. Accordingly NFAEE and affiliates have been served the notice to the Department.
The Strike must act as a strong warning to the Government that the working class of the country is not going to let these attacks pass.
We appeal to all employees to join in the NATION WIDE Industrial Action en-mass and make it a grand success and thus become part of the history.
