One year has passed since the demise of Com. S. K. Vyas Ji, the legendary leader of Central Government employees and Pensioners on 13th February 2015.
Com. Vyasji was the Secretary General of the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers for forty years from 1967 to 2006. He was the President and Secretary General of All India Audit & Accounts Association for a long time. He continued as an Advisor of the Confederation and also as the General Secretary of National Coordination Committee of Pensioners (NCCP) and Bharat Central Pensioners Confederation (BCPC) till death.
Com. Vyas Ji has lead various struggles and strike actions of the Central Government Employees and was in the forefront of the leadership which organised the first strike action of the Central Government Employees after Independence, in the year 1960. Com. Vyas was jailed and dismissed from service. He played an important role in rallying the Central Government employees alongwith the striking Railway employees in the year 1974. He was an able and uncompromising negotiator with the Government in the JCM National Council and standing committee. He was responsible for many of the benefits and allowances enjoyed by the Central Government employees. The cost indexation of wages was earned by the Government employees through the sustained struggles and efforts in 1960s under his leadership. The Confederation of Central Government Employees & workers representing 1.5 million civil servants was in the forefront of the incessant struggles and strike actions organised by the Indian working class against the neo-liberal economic policies of the Government. Com. Vyas Ji’s vision and ideological clarity has made the Confederation, part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class movement of India.
Com. Vyasji was the friend, Philosopher, guide and everything for the Central Government employees movement. In the more than six decades long trade union life, Com. Vyasji endeared himself to every section of the Central Government employees. His death has caused an irreparable and irreplaceable loss to all of us. He was a great leader, symbol of simplicity, a gem of a person and a leader who is down to earth. Extremely polite, kind hearted and compassionate. One of the finest human being, tallest leader, a gentle mentor and a legend.
He is in our hearts! His memories will be forever with us! His long saga of struggle for the cause of the employees and workers will inspire the generations to come.
The National Secretariat of the Confederation calls upon all the affiliated organizations, State/District C-O-Cs to observe 13th February 2016 as S. K. VYAS JI REMEMBRANCE DAY by holding meetings, Seminar etc. throughout the country.
COM. S. K. VYAS JI AMAR RAHE !
LONG LIVE COM. S. K. VYASJI !!
LONG LIVE, LONG LIVE !!!

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!!
