SIGNIFICANCE OF CONFEDERATION’S ONE DAY STRIKE ON 16-03-2017
(contd from 22-02-2017)
WHY NJCA SHOULD REVIVE THE DEFERRED INDEFINITE STRIKE ?
WHY INDEFINITE STRIKE SHOULD BE REVIVED BY NJCA ?
From the above it is clear that the Government has gone back from all the assurances and is not ready to take the JCM staffside seriously. All the
employees and pensioners are totally disappointed and are voicing their anger and protest through various forums including social media.
It is in this background the much awaited meeting of NJCA was held on 17-01-2017. Unfortunately, no consensus decision for revival of the deferred indefinite strike could be taken in the NJCA meeting. As stated above, the revival of the indefinite strike is the only option left before the NJCA.
SIGNIFICANCE OF 16th MARCH 2017, ONE DAY STRIKE OF CONFEDERATION
The 25th National Conference of the Confederation of Central Govt. employees & Workers, held at Chennai had taken a decision to request all constituents of NJCA to revive the deferred indefinite strike, if the Government is not ready to honour its commitment before 30th October 2016, ie; before the four months timeline fixed for fulfilling the assurances given to the NJCA leaders on 30-06-2016 by none other than the senior cabinet Ministers, Shri. Rajnath Singh, Shri. Arun Jaitley and Shri. Suresh Prabhu.
The AIC further decided that, in case NJCA is not ready to revive the deferred indefinite strike, the confederation should organise independent trade union action including strike. Confederation strongly feels that, now that almost eight months are over after the “sacred” assurances given by Honourable
Ministers, there is no meaning in going on waiting indefinitely. Further Govt. has already conveyed its decision that Option-I for Pensioners is rejected and withdrawal of NPS is not within the purview of NPS committee. Govt. had unilaterally imposed “adverse” conditions for grant of MACP.
Allowances are already delayed for 14 months (from the date of effect of 7th CPC) and the arrears are likely to be denied. The so called “High Level Committee” is yet to be constituted.
As no consensus decision for revival of indefinite strike could be taken in the NJCA, confederation has decided to organise one day nationwide protest strike on 16th March, 2017. Response from employees & participation in the countrywide demonstrations, Mass Dharnas and 15th December 2016 Parliament March was unprecedented and magnificent. About more than 13 lakhs Central Government employees will participate in the strike. After reviewing the participation, confederation will decide future course of action including indefinite strike, if situation warrants.
The National Secretariat of the Confederation calls upon all Central Government employees to make the one day strike a grand success by ensuring your participation in the strike.
AWAKE, ARISE, UNITE COMRADES!
RALLY ROUND CONFEDETATION!!
“UNITY FOR STRUGGLE AND STRUGGLE FOR UNITY”
“An iron-like determination is the guarantee for success of every movement, this should not be forgotten even for a moment. However ruthless may be the ruling class, they cannot change the tide of the history. It is the masses that alone can bring real change through their indomitable strength and courage. It is not the question of appealing to the sense of injustices of the Government, but the relative strength of the organised movements and the forces combating it, that is going to decide the course of history”.
= Late Com. K. G. Bose, the spark that revolutionised the Central Govt. employees movement with the message of “unity for struggle and struggle for unity”.
