One Day Strike on 2017 February-15

ONE DAY STRIKE ON 15TH FEBRUARY 2017

·       AGAINST THE BREACH OF ASSURANCE AND BETRAYAL BY GROUP OF MINISTERS OF NDA GOVERNMENT.

·      TO UPHOLD THE SELF-RESPECT AND DIGNITY OF 33 LAKHS CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND 34 LAKHS PENSIONERS.

ABOUT 15 LAKHS CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND AUTONOMOUS BODY EMPLOYEES WILL PARTICIPATE IN THE STRIKE


v  Central Government employees and Pensioners betrayed by NDA Govt. by breach of assurance given by Group of Cabinet Ministers including Shri Rajnath Singh, Shiri Arun Jaitely and Shri Suresh Prabhu regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula. This is the worst pay revision after 2nd CPC report in 1960. Government implemented the report without any modification suggested by Staff side (JCM). In 1960 entire employees went on five days strike.

v  Central Government Pensioners and Family Pensioners betrayed by NDA Government by not implementing Option-I (parity) recommended by 7th CPC and accepted by Cabinet.

v  Autonomous bodies employees betrayed by NDA Government by issuing instructions NOT TO IMPLEMENT 7th CPC benefits to Autonomous body employees and Pensioners UNTIL FURTHER ORDERS.

v  Three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Postal Department betrayed by NDA Government by not extending the benefits of 7th CPC to them and also by not publishing the separate one-man committee report already submitted to the Government.

v  Thousands of Casual, Part-time, contingent employees, daily rated mazdoors and contract workers are betrayed by the NDA Government by not regularizing their services and by not revising their wages on the principle of “Equal Pay for Equal Work”.

v  7th CPC Submitted its report after 21 months on 19th November 2015. Even after 13 months the NDA Government has not implemented the revised HRA, Transport Allowance and all other Allowances. Government is deliberately delaying it further to deny implementation from 01.01.2016 and also to delay it to next Financial year 2017, thereby denying arrears.

v  Government betrayed Central Government employees and Pensioners by denying eligible 3% Dearness Allownace with effect from 01.07.2016. DA for pre-revised Minimum pay of 7000 is 7% = 490 per month. Same pre-revised pay of 7000 revised to 18000 after merger of 125% DA as on 01.01.2016. New DA granted for revised minimum pay of 18000 is 2% = 360 per month. Thus there is a recurring loss of Rs. 130/- per month in DA granted to Minimum pay. For other higher pay scales the loss is still higher.

v  In the past, only one Committee before implementation of CPC report and one Anomaly Committed after implementation was constituted. This time Committee after Committees are constituted but no negotiated settlement with the JCM (NC) staff side on any of the issue, but only one-way hearing of the views of the staff side. Implementation Committee, Empowered Committee, Allowances Committee, Pension (Option-1) Committee, Anomaly Committee, New Pension System (NPS) Committee and Senior officers Committee (?) to discuss the issues arising out of 7th CPC recommendations. (no formal orders constituting the Group of Senior Offices Committee and no terms of reference made public). Almost six months are over after Cabinet approving pay scales and one year is over after submission of 7th CPC report, but no outcome of any committee).

v  No negotiated settlement on Confederation’s 21 Point Charter of demands which includes increase in minimum pay, Fitment formula, no reduction of HRA rate, Revision of all allownaces, Restoration of abolished Advances, Option-1 for pensioners, Scrap New Pension System, Autonomous bodies wage revision, GDS Issues, Casual Labour issues, MACP promotional hierarchy and “Very good” bench mark, filling up of vacancies, removal of 5% compassionate appointment restriction, Five promotions, LDC/UDC pay upgradation, Parity in pay scales with Central Secretariat Staff, removal of CCL adverse condition, equal pay for equal work etc.

WHAT HAPPENED ON 30TH JUNE 2016 ?
AND WHO BETRAYED THE EMPLOYEES AND PENSIONERS ?

On the night of 30th June 2016, Shri Suresh Prabhu, Hon’ble Minister for Railways informed the Secretary, JCM (NC) Staff side Shri Shiv Gopal Misra that the Prime Minister had empowered three Cabinet Ministers, viz: Shri Rajnath Singh, Hon’ble Home Minister, Shri Arun Jaitely, Hon’ble Fiance Minister and Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, Hon’ble Railways Minister, to negotiate with the staff side, JCM (NC), and invited staff side (JCM) for a meeting at the Official residence of Shri Rajnath Singh, Hon’ble Home Minister on the same night 21:30 hrs. On persistent demand of the staff side (JCM), the Group of Ministers assured that the issue of increase in the Minimum wage and Fitment formula will be referred to a High Level Committee and the Committee will submit its report to the Government within four months.

NOW SIX MONTH’S ARE ALMOST OVER.
WHERE IS THE HIGH LEVEL COMMITTEE REPORT?

CHEATING……………….CHEATING………………….. CHEATING

WHEN CABINET MINISTERS BETRAY, WHAT SHALL WE DO?

STRIKE…………….STRIKE……………….. STRIKE

Strike is the only BEFITTING REPLY to those who betrayed the cause of the Central Government employees and pensioners.

We cannot go on begging before the NDA Government.

WORKERS ARE NOT BEGGARS.

Let us make the 15th February 2017 one day strike a resounding success.
Let us not surrender our prestige and self-respect before those who betrayed our cause.

Fraternally yours,

GDS CONVENTION


PARTICIPATE ENMASS =ASSEMBLE ENMASS
= PROTEST ENMASS

PARLIAMENT MARCH ON 15-12-16

Chalo Delhi

STRIKE IS INEVITABLE

THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG

REVISED ALLOWANCES WILL NOT BE PAID IN THIS FINANCIAL YEAR.

ALLOWANCES COMMITTEE'S TIME LIMIT EXTENDED UPTO 22.02.2017

CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AGAIN CHEATED BY NDA GOVERNMENT

STRIKE IS INEVITABLE

MAKE 15th DECEMBER PARLIAMENT MARCH 

A THUNDERING SUCCESS!

          Dr. Urjith R Patel, Governor, Reserve Bank of India has made the following observations in a media conversation which is published in RBI website.

(1) The disbursement of salaries and arrears under 7th Pay Commission award has not been disruptive to inflation outcomes.

(2) The extension of two months given to the Ministry of Finance to receive the notification on higher allowances under the Pay Commission's award, COULD PUSH IT'S FULLER EFFECT INTO THE NEXT FINANCIAL YEAR rather than this financial year.

          The above statement by the Governor, RBI clearly indicates that THE ALLOWANCES WILL BE REVISED ONLY AFTER FEBRUARY 2017 AND WILL COME INTO EFFECT IN THE NEXT FINANCIAL YEAR ONLY.

          Earlier to a question regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula Minister of State for Finance Shri Arjun Ram Meghwal gave the following reply in the Raja Sabha on 23.11.2016.

          "The anomalies arising out of implementation of 7th Central Pay Commission will be examined by the Anomaly Committee which has already been constituted. Based on the report of the Committee, the matter will be considered by the Government and appropriate decision will be taken. 

From the reply it is clear that the question of increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment factor is to be decided by the Anomaly Committee. That is why the Government has not formally constituted THE HIGH LEVEL COMMITTEE as assured by the Group of Ministers to the JCM Staff side leaders in the  30th June night  discussion. And this is the reason for Group of Senior Officers behaving as if they .don't know what the task is assigned to them. Now by 30th December SIX months will be over after the 30th June assurance given by Group of Ministers including Shri Rajnath Singh , Hon'ble Home Minister , Shri Arun Jaitley , Hon'ble Finance Minister and Shri Suresh Prabhu , Hon'ble Railway Minister . Employees and Leaders have never expected such blatant breach of assurance given by Senior Cabinet Ministers of NDA Government.

          The revision of pay and pension of thousands of Autonomous body employees and Pensioners  is also pending for the last six months. On 17.11.2016 Finance Ministry has given instructions to all Autonomous bodies NOT TO EXTEND the benefits of 7th CPC to employees and Pensioners of Autonomous bodies UNTIL FURTHER ORDERS.

          The One man Committee constitute by Government for revision of wages and service conditions of three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks of Postal Department had submitted it's report to Government on 24th November 2016.  Even after 20 days, the Government is not ready to publish the report or give copy to the recognised Federations.

          The revision of wages of Casual, Part-time Contingent and Contract workers, consequent on implementation of 7th CPC wage revision is also pending.

          The one and the only favourable recommendation of 7th CPC ie; Parity between past and present pensioners (Option - 1) stands referred to a Committee which has taken a stand that Option - 1 is not feasible.

          None of the demands raised by Confederation in its 20 point charter of demands is settled.


      THERE IS NO SHORT-CUT OTHER THAN STRUGGLE.

                         AWAKE!    ARISE!!  UNITE COMRADES!!!

                               RALLY ROUND CONFEDERATION.


WE THE WORKERS, WE THE NATION, WE ARE NOT BEGGAR FOLKS
