GEAR UP FOR THE ONE-DAY NATIONWIDE STRIKE ON 16TH MARCH 2017
PROTEST THE BETRAYAL - WEAR THE BLACK BADGE ON 6TH MARCH 2017
__________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Comrades,

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

CONFEDERATION NATIONAL SECRETARIAT CALLS UPON ALL CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

Observe 6th March 2017
as
BLACK DAY

v Against the betrayal of Central Government employees and pensioners by Group of Ministers of NDA Government.
v  Demanding increase in minimum pay and fitment formula.

Dear comrades

We know that all of you are in the midst of hectic preparation and campaign for making the 16thMarch Strike action a great success.  As has been explained in the article, which we have placed on our website, the NDA Government, led by BJP has exhibited the worst anti-employee attitude in the post independent  era of our country.  This Government has treated its own employees as its worst enemy. The decision taken by the Union Cabinet on 29th June, 2016 rejecting even the recommendations made by the high level committee chaired by the Cabinet Secretary was unprecedented. Even the setting up of various committees was nothing but an eye wash. Nothing will come out of that.  Even the NPS Committee on which the young comrades had pinned some hope of at least  getting a minimum guaranteed pension will produce nothing.  The discussions at the JCM fora has been converted into mostly monologues i.e. the official side simply listening and not reacting.  The Government, it appears, has made the Pension department to reject the one and only recommendation of the 7th CPC which was considered to be positive i.e. Option No.1 for pensioners on the specious ground that the same is not feasible to be implemented. The allowances committee has dilly dallied its deliberation and would now submit its report after the extended period of 6 months expires on 22.02.2017. Even if they make any positive recommendation, which is seldom expected, the NDA Government would not act upon it.  They have very successfully postponed the payment of the revised allowanced for 15 months. 

                In the face of such terrible onslaught, betrayal and chicanery, which no Government in the past has every indulged in,  it is surprising that some of our friends who has a predominant role in the movement of the Central Government employees has unfortunately chosen to wait and watch.  It appears that they have chosen to wait endlessly hurting the cause of the workers. 

                We have no hesitation to affirmatively state the obvious that we have chosen the right path, the path of struggles, which can only the choice of the working class against tyrannical attitude of the employer, howsoever, powerful they may be. We must realize that those who are  in the saddle of power today are not permanently posted there. We were witness to the abysmal downfall of persons who were arrogant personified.  It appears that the reasonableness, righteousness and patience we had exhibited have been taken as signs of cowardice. The undeniable fact is that those who fight, only can win. We, therefore, appeal to you to carry on with conviction and courage.

                Eight months will be over on 6th March, 2017, when the Group of Ministers held out the assurance of revisiting the minimum wage and multiplication factor.  It is now crystal clear that that was an act of chicanery.  No committee was set up  and no discussions were held to seriously consider the issue.  We, therefore, appeal to all of you to ensure that the day, i.e. 6thMarch, 2017 is observed as a day of betrayal and all our members are requested to wear a Black badge with the following words inscribed on it in bold letters and conduct demonstrations in front of all Central Government offices.
                                               

HONOUR THE COMMITMENT MADE ON
30th June & 6th JULY, 2016
REVISE THE MINIMUM WAGE AND
MULTIPLICATION FACTOR

6TH March 2017 must be yet another occasion to mobilize our members to ensure their participation in the 16th March, 2017 strike action and ultimately win all the demands in the charter. 

                We fight to win and we shall win.
                               
                With greetings,
Yours fraternally,

OBSERVE COM. S. K. VYAS JI REMEMBRANCE DAY ON 13THFEBRUARY 2017
              
 Com. S. K. Vyasji, the legendary leader of the Central Govt. Employees and Pensioners passed away on 13th February, 2015.
                   Com. Vyasji was the Secretary General and President of the Confederation of Central Govt. 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 the Advisor of the Confederation and also as the Secretary General of National Co-ordination Committee of Pensioners Association (NCCPA) and Bharat Central Pensioners Confederation (BCPC) till death. 
                   Com. Vyasji has led various struggles and strike actions of the Central Govt. Employees and was in the forefront of the leadership which organised the first indefinite strike action of the Central Govt. employees after independence, in the year 1960.  Com. Vyas was jailed and dismissed from service.  He played an important role in rallying the Central Govt. employees along with 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 Govt. employees.  The cost indexation of wages was earned by the Govt. employees through the sustained struggles and efforts in 1960s under his leadership.  Confederation of Central Govt. employees and workers representing about 15 lakhs Central Govt. employees is in the forefront of the incessant struggle and strike actions organised by Indian Working Class against the neo-liberal economic policies of the Government.  Com. S. K. Vyasji’s vision and ideological clarity has made the Confederation, part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class movement in India.
                   Com. Vyasji was a friend, philosopher, guide and everything for the Central Govt. Employees movement.  In the more than six decades long trade union life, Com. Vyasji endeared himself to every section of the Central Govt. Employees.  His death has caused 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 and sacrifice for the Central Govt. employees and pensioners will inspire the generations to come.
                   The National Secretariat of Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers calls upon all affiliated organisations and C-O-Cs to observe the 2nd Death anniversary of Com. S. K. Vyas Ji as “S. K. VYAS JI REMEMBRANCE DAY”.  

                   Com. S. K. Vyasji Amar Rahe!
           Long live Com. S. K. Vyasji !!
           Long live, Long live !!!

NPS COMMITTEE - HOPES OF YOUNGER GENERATION SHATTERED


NPS committee constituted by the Government to streamline the National Pension System has called the JCM Staff Side for second round of discussion on 10.02.2017. As per the notified agenda, the committee is proposing discussion on only cosmetic changes in NPS. Basic issues such as (1) scrapping of NPS (2) Guaranteed Minimum pension to NPS Pensioners  ie; 50% of the last pay drawn should be guaranteed by Government as minimum pension even if the returns from annuity insurance scheme amount is less than the 50%. and (3) Exemption of Central Govt. Employees from the purview of NPS, are not included in the agenda of the meeting even though the Cabinet Secretary has assured JCM Staff Side Chairman and Secretary Shri. Raghavayya and Shri Shiv Gopal Misra on 19th January 2017 that -- "so far as issue of NPS is concerned he has already directed the Committee to hold meeting with Staff Side". From reading the agenda it can be seen that main demands of the Staff Side are avoided, thus betraying the cause of thousands of younger generation Central Government Employees who joined service after 01.01.2004. Their hopes are shattered and belied. NJCA should revive the deferred strike to protect the interest of younger generations. Let us make the 16th March 2017 Confederation Strike a grand success.
