NATIONAL FEDERATION OF ATOMIC ENERGY EMPLOYEES
MARCH AHEAD TO MASSIVE COUNTRYWIDE
GENERAL STRIKE ON 2ND SEPTEMBER STRIKE
The Central Trade Unions of the Country along with all Independent National Federations of employees of different industries and services including Confederation of Central Govt. Employees and Workers of Banks, Insurance, Defence, Telecome, State and Central Government Departments and Public Sector Departments have decided to organize All India General Strike on 2nd September 2016, against the anti-people, anti-workers policies and authoritarian attitude of the Government. Intensive campaign and preparation to make the general strike a resounding historical success is going on in full swing throughout the country. The attitude of the Government is profoundly negative and hugely challenging to the working class including Central Govt. employees. The issues in the Charter of demands submitted by the Trade Unions to the Govt. relate to basic interest of the country’s economy and also issues concerning the livelihood of the working people of both organized and unorganized sectors.
After long hue and cry the Government implemented the recommendations of 7th CPC without any changes in the recommendation on minimum pay and fitment formula. Government is not ready to modify the 7th CPC recommendations, which is worst ever made by any pay commissions. The assurance given to the staff side regarding enhancement minimum pay and fitment formula is yet to be implemented. Even the Government was not ready to correct the simple arithmetic mistakes in the Pay Matrix and the levels recommended by the 7th CPC while its implementation even after 13 Member Empowered Committee of Secretaries (ECoS) and the Implementation Cell worked on about 7 months. All other retrograde recommendations like reduction in the percentage of HRA, abolition of 52 allowances etc. are yet to be modified. The policy offensives of the Government like downsizing, outsourcing, contractorisation, corporatization and privatization has affected all Central Government Departments and employees in a worst manner. Ban on creation of new posts and non-filling up of about six lakhs vacant posts had increased the work load of the existing employees and adversely affected the efficiency of the services. The New Pension Scheme (NPS) implemented with affect from 01.01.2004, is nothing but a “No Pension Scheme”, as it is fully dependent on the vagaries of share market forces. The 5% ceiling on compassionate appointment is not yet removed. Overall the attitude of the Government is totally negative towards the Central Government Employees and Pensioners.
The attitude of the Department also is synchronizing with the Government policies. Department arbitrarily delaying decision on various issues such as Cadre Review, Option to switch over to pension, Revision of Overtime and Night Duty Allowances, Promotional Avenue after acquiring additional qualification, revision of norms for recruitment and promotion policy and the anomalies, filling of posts, etc.
To protest against the totally negative and arbitrary attitude of the Central Government and Department NFAEE and its affiliates unanimously decided to join with the main stream of the work force of the country and to join in the One Day Strike on 2nd September 2016. All employees are requested to join in the one day strike along with crores of work force of the country on 2nd September 2016
