ALL INDIA POSTAL ACCOUNTS
GEAR UP FOR THE ONE-DAY NATIONWIDE STRIKE ON 16TH MARCH 2017
PROTEST THE BETRAYAL - WEAR THE BLACK BADGE ON 6TH MARCH 2017
On the solemn assurance of the Government of India, the National Joint Council of Action deferred the indefinite strike, which was scheduled from 11th July 2016. The Committees set up for dealing with Allowances, minimum wage, fitment factor, New Pension Scheme etc. are proved to be mere eyewash. There is no sincere attempt to redeem the promises made to the highest negotiating body of the Central Government employees.
After lapse of six months, it is clear that issues of employees and workers are of least priority to this Government. The only positive recommendation of the 7th CPC in respect of Pensioners was dumped on the ground of non-feasibility. Allowances Committee even after completion of six months is yet to submit its report. Formation of High-level Committee for examining the minimum wage and fitment formula has never taken off. It was diluted to a lower-level Committee. These Committees did no cognizable work.
The developments are alarming and affront on the self-respect of the Central Government employees. The NPS Committee is not going to address the core issue of keeping the CG employees out of the purview of the PFRDA. The JCM Staff Side has been side stepped and relegated to a spectator role. The monotony of the monologue of the official Committees has to be broken. The CG employees have to assert themselves and protect their rights and defend their rightful demands.
Confederation has rightly taken a decision to break this monologue-monotony with a deafening protest with a principled stand that the self-respect of the employees is non-negotiable. That is the reason for the nationwide one day strike call on 16th March 2017. All the Central Government employees should rally round the charter of demands presented to the Government of India and fight to achieve it. Success of 16th March 2017 strike will invigorate and refurbish the fighting image of the Central Government employees. We all should unite and resonate in unison our slogan that employees and workers are not beggars and they are the rightful stakeholders in the making of this great nation. Government should be taught to respect the demands and aspirations of the employees and workers.
As a curtain raiser and prelude to our one day strike the CCGEW has asked its rank and file to observe “BLACK DAY” on 6th March 2017 by wearing black badges and holding demonstrations to protest the betrayal of Central Government employees and pensioners by Group of Ministers of NDA Government. Postal Accounts Employees are requested to participate in toto and make the one day strike on 16th March 2017 a grand success and also observe the “BLACK DAY” on 6th March 2017 in all earnestness.
LET’S ANOUNCE EMPLOYEES ARE NOT BEGGARS!
LET’S UNITE AND FIGHT TO ACHIEVE OUR JUSTIFIED DEMANDS!!
With Struggle Greetings
