Casual Labourer Federation -- indefinite hunger fast programme in Chennai
A massive turn out of postal casual labourers and postal workers at the venue of Chief PMG office, Tamilnadu marked the beginning of indefinite fast by CHQ leaders of Postal Casual Labourers Federation today (27-06-2017) morning. The indefinite fast is for the single demand of implementation of DG orders on Casual labourers revision of wages in Tamil Nadu from 01-01-2006.
On seeing the most unjustified stand of Circle Administration that denies to revise wages of casual labourers on the basis of 6th and 7th CPC wages as ordered by Department of Posts. The CHQ in its CWC decided to undertake indefinite fast by CHQ leaders under the leadership of Com. M.Krishnan (CHQ President), Comrades P. Mohan (CHQ G/S), Y.Nagabhushanam (Wkg. President CHQ), D.Sivagurunadhan (CHQ Treasurer), and S. Balamurugan (CHQ OGS) as well as comrades J.Ramamurthy (President P3 CHQ), B.Parandhaman (NFPE CoC President), G.Kannan (Convener, NFPE CoC), also in the indefinite fast along with Comrade Krishnan.
Com. M.Duraipandian COC, G/S, Tamilnadu inaugurated and several leaders of Confederation affiliates too graced the agitation. The important point to be highlighted is that the programme was held despite the negative stand of denial of permission to the indefinite fast by Circle Administration.
