MAKE THE THREE DAYS DHARNA A GRAND SUCCESS
19 – 21 JANUARY 2016
The entirety of the Central Government employees are on struggle path under the auspices of National Joint Council of Action, comprising of the Federations of Railway, Defence and Central Government employees, denouncing the negative and disappointing recommendations of the 7th CPC.
The meager increase of 14% recommended by the 7th CPC is the lowest ever any pay Commission has made. It was the similar recommendation made by the 2nd CPC that triggered a confrontation of an unprecedented nature, leading to a strike action, which lasted for five days in the year 1960. The 5th and 6th CPC recommendations had resulted in the wage rise of 31% and 54% respectively. Unless the minimum wage is re-determined with all consequential benefits, the discontent will not be capable of being addressed effectively.
Similarly, negative recommendations on the issues like Advances, HRA, promotions, MACP, GDS, Pay Matrix, increment, Casual and Out sourcing, up-gradation of LDCs, Parity between pay scales of Stenographers, Senior Accountants and officers of the Accounts and Audit Departments and the Assistants and officers working in the Central Secretariat, National Pension Scheme and host of other issues have to be rectified and improved upon as demanded in the Charter of demands submitted by the NJCA.
The NJCA has already declared that if the Government fails to address these concerns before the first week of February 2016, the entirety of Central Government employees including Railway and Defence employees will be constrained to go on indefinite strike from the first week of March 2016. The date of strike action is going to be decided in the NJCA meeting to be held at Delhi on 08-02-2016.
To galvanize our strength and to demonstrate our united determination to fight out the injustice, the NJCA has given a call to observe three days massive Dharna all over the country from 19th January to 21st January 2016. Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers has fully endorsed the call and gave an appeal to make the protest a mammoth success. This joint show of resentment should jolt the Government and compel it to negotiate a settlement; otherwise final showdown of indefinite strike would become inevitable.
AIPAEA appeals all the Postal Accounts employees to join this three-day nationwide protest in large numbers. Your spirited participation in large numbers will ensure the success and pave way for settlement our demands.
Participate in large number! Register your strong protest!!
