Prof. Usta Patnaik, in her inaugural address provided a bird’s eye view of the economic model designed by the neo-liberal policies and the resultant misery heaped on the mass of Indian population. In her classic presentation she demolished the arguments of some economists, who glorified the benefits of neo-liberal policies, by quoting the statistics from the database of the National Sample Survey. Undoubtedly top 25% of Indian population enjoyed the goodies as enjoyed by their counterparts in USA and Europe due to the EMI (equated monthly instalments). This is one of the rosy pictures the hegemonists of neo-economic policy present in support of this economic model. If income distribution is analyzed, it will be clear, that majority of the population is exploited for the benefit of the miniscule. The mass of the rural and urban population is pushed to malnutrition. The required calories per day in the rural areas and urban areas are 2200 and 2100 respectively. But the 90% of people living in urban areas are sustaining with below 1800 calories. Compared to the year 1983 the mass of the population is cutting down their food intake of their families and diverting their incomes to meet the raising cost of health, education and transport. This reflects the disgraceful state of affairs even after more than 60 years of Independence. The women employees working in garment factories in the Export Zones are being exploited to the hilt. The daily targets of work are high and hence, the women employees are forced to work for more than 10 hours per day to complete the targets. The toilet break is only for 10 minutes. Frequently drinking of water is not allowed so that no more toilet breaks. No identity cards are given, so that no one establishes the permanency of the job. All these woes came out in a public hearing of women employees who work in garment export zones of Tamilnadu. Agrarian crisis is compounded since the implementation of these neo-liberal economic policies. Compared to the years 2004-05 the economic growth by the year 2009-10 collapsed. Unemployment is in raise. The FRBM Act (Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management Act) introduced in the year 2003 at the behest of World Bank led to the cut in Governmental expenditure. It is estimated that every Rs.100 less spent by Government will result in Rs.500 less in the income of the people. That means the budgetary support will spurt the economic growth. This was killed by FRBM. Agrarian crisis worsened due to non-availability of easy credit for agriculture. Even the nationalized banks replicated the US model of easy credit to buy the consumer goods. Thus the consumer credit is pushed. It aggravated the crisis. All these policies directly or indirectly affected the common people of rural and urban areas including the women. Prof. Usta Patnaik called upon all the women employees to realize these aspects and fight to stop these policies.
With her fiery and powerful keynote address Com. Amarjit Kaur, Secretary, AITUC made a strong case for more and more participation of women employees in Trade Union activities. Taking the cue from Prof. Usta Patnaik speech, she reminded the participants of the Convention of their role as a privileged class in emancipation of the drudgery of large mass of women employees working in unorganized sectors. The women and children working in the slate-manufacturing units of Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh are deprived of their basic necessities of life. The children are driven out of schools in search of daily lively hood for the family. The silicosis disease engulfed the prime age of the people of these regions. No health-care for them. No permanent employment for them. The plight of women workers in the Export Zones of Fisheries is horrible. Continuous and untimely work in the saline and cold seawaters has even disturbed the biological order. These contract workers have no rights and even attempt to unionize will not be spared. The women employees working in many such sectors have no maternity leave, not to think of Child Care leave. The crisis in agrarian sector pushed the life of rural population below animal state of living. The “gobar anaj” the grain collected from the dung of the animals for human consumption in areas like Bundhelkhand is the reflection of the shattered Indian economy under the neo-liberal policies of the Rulers. The entire Working Class, keeping the banner inhibitions aside, came together and is waging a battle to defeat these policies. The Women has inherited a rich tradition of fighting spirit from the First Independent battle fought by Rani Jhansi and from the Indian freedom movement. They should assert their role and fight not only for their rights but also fight for the under privileged. Com. Amarjit Kaur exhorted the women employees to take this challenge. She advised the women employees to strengthen the unions and work in the unions. She suggested to organize the women employees by conducting exclusive trade union classes to equip them with the knowledge of the various legislations enacted to safe guard the women employees.
Com. S.K. Vyasji, the Advisor of the CCGEW also opined that the women employees should have the knowledge of all the Acts to defend them selves against the harassment in work places. The grievance cell formation for women in each establishment should be insisted. The unity among the employees is important to fight out the harassment of women employees. He wished the Convention a great success.
Com. KKN Kutty, President, CCGEW has extensively spoken on the charter of demands including the wage revision and merger of D.A. He delved on the situation after the announcement of constitution of 7thCentral Pay Commission. Com. KKN gave a Clarion call to all women employees to unite and participate in the future struggles under the banner of CCGEW to realize the Charter of Demands.
Com. Shobana, Convenor, Women’s Committee submitted her report. She told that the Confederation is a strong organization representing the 13 lakh Central Government employees. The restrictions imposed on the grant of CCL are removed to some extent because of the efforts CCGEW. Whatever achievement so far made is possible because of the united struggles waged under the banner of CCGEW. She narrated how the GDS, Casual and Contract workers in the Postal Department are discriminated. The decisions taken in the first Women’s Convention held at Kolkata have been implemented. She requested all the women employees to participate in large number in the ensuing March to Parliament at Delhi on 12-12-2013 and also in all the campaign and struggle programmes of Confederation.

Com. M.S.Raja, Secretary General, All India Audit & Accounts Association ,
Com. I.S.Dabas, Deputy Secretary General, NFPE,
Com. Brigu, Secretary General, Civil Accounts Employees Association,
greeted the Convention.
About 117 women delegates representing various Organisations from the nook and corner of the country participated in the Convention.
The remarkable feature of this 2nd Convention as observed by Com. S.K.Vyasji, is that the women representatives have become more vocal and assertive. In the discussions more than 20 delegated participated and given their suggestions and brought the problems to the notice of the leadership. Removal of age restriction of the children under CCL, extension of CCL on remarriage, grant of CCL to look after the grand children, providing basic amenities at the work place, problems of casual, contract and out-sourced women employees, attacks on women employees in West Bengal, enhancement of minimum age of employment, inclusion of two women representatives from casual and contract workers in the mahila committee, posting women in day shifts, apart from the policy demands of reservation for women in all All India Committees, holding of periodical meetings of the Mahila Sub-Committee are some of the issues raised by the women delegates. Many Women delegates emphasized the need for strengthening the unions and need for inculcation of union spirit among the women employees.
Karnataka Women delegates led by Com. Chandramma Linga Raju, AIPAEA, honoured Com. S.K. Vyasji over a standing ovation given by the entire delegates and guests present in the Convention.
Com. M. Krishnan, Secretary General, CCGEW, summed up the entire proceedings and told that the aim of formation of Mahila sub committee is to encourage the more and more women employees to participate in the decision making process.

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS
1st Floor, North Avenue PO Building, New Delhi – 110001
CIRCULAR NO. 10 DATED – 29.11.2013
GET READY FOR STRIKE
CONFEDERATION NATIONAL SECRETARIAT DECIDES TO ORGANIZE PHASED AGITATIONAL PROGRAMMES CULMINATING IN STRIKE
NO COMPROMISE ON THE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF 7th CPC SUBMITTED BY THE STAFF SIDE
The National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers met at New Delhi on 28.11.2013 and reviewed the situation arising out of the Government’s announcement of Seventh Central Pay Commission and the subsequent developments thereon.
Even though Government has announced constitution of 7th Central Pay Commission; the appointment is yet to take place. In the meanwhile one round of discussion was held with Secretary, DOP&T on terms of reference. Subsequently, the staff side, JCM National Council has submitted a unanimous proposal on the items to be included in the terms of reference of the 7th CPC, which includes:
(1) date of effect as 01.01.2014
(2) merger of DA with pay
(3) grant of interim relief
(4) inclusion of GDS under the ambit of 7th CPC
(5) statutory pension for those entered into service on or after 01.01.2004
(6) settlement of anomalies of 6th CPC
(7) cashless/hassle-free medicare facilities etc.
Government while announcing the 7th CPC has made it clear that the date of effect will be 01.01.2016. Further nothing has been mentioned about DA merger and interim relief.
Regarding GDS the declared stand of the Government is that GDS are not civil servants and in the past also every time when CPC is appointed, the Government refused to include them in the Pay commission. Last time also inspite of the strong protest and agitational programmes conducted by NFPE and Postal JCA, the Government has appointed a bureaucratic committee.
Regarding statutory pension to those who entered into service on or after 01.01.2004, the Government’s stand is well known and it may refuse to include this item also in the terms of reference.
This being the position, our past experience shows that unless and until the demands raised in the staff side proposal submitted to Government on terms of reference of the CPC is backed by serious agitational programmes, rallying the entire Central Government Employees and create compulsion on the Government to accept our justified stand, there is every possibility of Government rejecting the above proposal.
Further all of us are aware that the political situation in the country is gradually getting in election mode. This is bringing forth before the working class movement a crucial task of front-loading our class issues in the ensuring political battle. We have to keep in mind that the corporate class and corporate controlled media has started making effort for relegating the working class issues and the economic policy related issues in particular to the background. It is our duty to bring the demands of the working class to the fore-front and conduct intensive campaign against those policies and also against those who are supporting the neo-liberal globalization policies.
Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers being the part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class of our country has got an added responsibility to rally the entire Central Government Employees in the joint struggle against the anti-people and anti-worker policies of the Government which shall ultimately lead to a change in the political equation ensuring implementation of pro-people, pro-worker alternative policy.
Taking into consideration all the above facts and circumstances, the National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers met at New Delhi on 28.11.2013 took a unanimous decision to go for strike if the Government refuse to accept the staff side proposal on terms of reference.
Confederation further decided to organize series of phased programme of action and campaign from now onwards so that the employees will be ready to go for strike on short notice.
It is further decided that Confederation shall not go for any compromise on the demands raised in the proposal submitted by the JCM Staff side on terms of reference of 7th CPC.
3. The following are the important decision of the National Secretariat.
1. The earlier decision to defer the strike ballot after the announcement of the 7th CPC by the Government is ratified. Under the given circumstances the decision taken to defer the ballot was perfectly right.
2. The modification made in the Confederation Charter of Demands regarding date of effect of the 7th CPC (i.e. from 01.01.2011 to 01.01.2014) is approved as it was necessitated for arriving at unanimity among the staff side on term of reference which will strengthen further the unity of all Central Government organizations including Railways and Defense.
