WFTU on May Day 2018

May Day 2018: With Internationalism and Solidarity

The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) in the name of its more than 92 million affiliates all over the world salutes, on the occasion of this great day, all the workers who live, work and struggle in every corner of the world. May Day was, is and will be a beacon for the struggles of yesterday and tomorrow despite our enemies’ efforts. May Day has to be a message of resistance against bourgeoisie, imperialists and their international alliances’ policies.

At the same time, the workers’ blood which was shed in Chicago on 1886 reminds us of our duty today; it reminds us that nothing is given for free; every right or freedom that was conquered by our class has been won through sacrifices, conflicts and organized struggles.

Today, whilst technology and scientific progress have contributed to the increase of the produced social wealth, our class’ living conditions have been deteriorating. In every capitalist country, the bosses attack our class achievements: they are sweeping through salaries, pensions and social security; they are privatizing everything, they don’t hesitate to attack even the sacred right to strike! Strike is the most powerful weapon we have in our hands and we are not going to allow anyone to limit, confine or convert it to a dead letter!

At the same time, they are intensively preparing and conducting regional wars.They pave the way for new massacres that will maximize their profits, for new imperialist interventions that will destroy nations, spill peoples’ blood and deprive them of their natural resources. The ongoing imperialist intervention in Libya and Syria, the growing aggression against Venezuela, the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the massacre of Saudi Arabia against Yemen, the tension on the Korean peninsula, they are all indications that multinationals have smelled new profitability areas; and every time this goes through the dead bodies of workers.

Under the current conditions of the deep economic crisis of capitalism and intense competition among various imperialist centers to control new markets, our most powerful weapons are INTERNATIONALISM and SOLIDARITY. No worker must feel alone. All together, we must move on with Solidarity and Internationalism, building the Unity of the working class to give practical effect to Karl Marx’s motto “proletarians of all countries unite”.

In this context, and on this anniversary, the WFTU expresses its solidarity with our persecuted brothers, the immigrants and refugees, who either because of imperialists’ bullets or because of poverty and misery generated by this system, are forced to leave their homeland. The WFTU will continue to be on their side, fighting for a world without exploitation and refugees. Immigrants must become an integral part of unions, unite with local workers and fight together for wages, rights, against wars and interventions.

We join our voice with the heroic Palestinian people in order to gain their own independent and democratic homeland.

At the same time, we stand by the side of the struggling female worker, the one who suffers from double exploitation. The WFTU female members, at the recent World Women’s Congress in Panama, declared loud and clear that they want equal rights to work, society and life. The WFTU also fights and will continue to fight for this equality. It’s the same orientation that we follow for the the youngsters, as the new generation of workers have the task to honor the best May Day struggle traditions.

This year, the WFTU, by giving its hand to anyone who has stood up, has announced the year of trade union education and training. Our purpose is that the new shifts of workers be insubordinate, militant, enemies of class compromise and collaboration. We honor the year of trade union training and we call on every union to contribute to the militant truth, revealing the true meaning of May Day and the sacrifices the working class made for it. By rescuing the past, the very memory of our movement, we leave a legacy for tomorrow’s struggles and we also have a tool for the future. It is a duty to know the history of our movement.

The WFTU takes steps forward, strengthens and grows: and that’s what frightens our opponents. There is no other way than to make it present everywhere, in every corner of the world, so that there is no longer a hungry, dismissed, hunted or persecuted worker. The WFTU must be a “trench” of struggle for a future without exploitation of man by man. This is how the vision of the first Secretary General of the WFTU, Luis Saillant, envisioned in 1945 will be brought to life:

“The WFTU for the workers of the whole world!”
                 LONG LIVE MAY DAY

Manoj Sinha launches Darpan to facilitate digital services in rural post offices

NEW DELHI: The NDA government Tuesday launched Digital Advancement of Rural Post Office for a New India or Darpan program at an outlay of Rs 1,300 crore, under the ambitious IT modernisation initiative to facilitate 1.29 branch post offices in rural India for digital transactions and online postal services.

The initiative, kicked off by Communications Minister Manoj Sinha, would include provision of handheld devices with cellular or SIM connectivity.

The mega program of the Department of Posts (DoP) would enable a range of digital services in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s prestigious Digital India umbrella program to accelerate service delivery to all Indians.

“As a result of changes we are making in our post offices, I believe our citizens will see a new face of our postal system,” Sinha said.

Confederation circular

Ref: Confdn/Genl/2016-19                                                                                      Dated – 14.03.2018
Time                :           10 AM to 5 PM
Dear Comrades,

Attack on the working class and peasants as a whole and Central Government Employees in particular are mounting day by day. The entire working class and peasantry are on struggle path. The farmers long march in Maharashtra is the latest mass struggle. None of the 7th CPC related demands of Central Government Employees are settled. The assurance given by the Group of Ministers to the NJCA leaders regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is in paper even after a lapse of 20 months. Now the Finance Minister has replied in Parliament that “no change in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is at present under consideration”. Employees who joined service after 01.01.2004 are retiring with a megre pension of 1000 to 2000 rupees only under the NPS Scheme. In effect, New Pension System has become No Pension System. Six lakhs posts are lying vacant for the last many years and now Govt. has issued orders to abolish all posts lying vacant for more than five years. HRA arrears, MACP Bench mark, Option-I for pensioners – Govt. is not ready to reconsider their stand. Three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks of the Postal department are waiting for two years for their legitimate wage revision. Exploitation of Casual and contract workers continue and equal pay for equal work is denied to them. Large scale outsourcing and privatization has become the order of the day. Privatisation of Railways and outsourcing of the work done by Defence employees are in full swing. 12 out of 17 Govt. of India Printing Presses are ordered to be closed. Same is the fate with other departmental printing presses including Railway printing presses. Autonomous body employees and pensioners are denied their rightful wage revision and pension revision due to the stringent conditions imposed by the Finance Ministry. Compassionate appointments have become a mirage.

Trade Union rights are denied. Orders banning dharna and demonstrations are issued. The draconian FR 56 (j) and Pension Rules 48 are misused as a short-cut to punish and victimize employees. JCM forums have become mere talking shops without any positive results. Recognition under CCS (RSA) Rules are delayed and Departmental Councils have become dead in many departments. Govt. sponsored unions are given undue patronage. Recognition of fighting organisations are withdrawn on flimsy grounds and trade union facilities are denied to the Chief Executives of recognised Associations.

It is in this background the National Secretariat of Confederation of Central Government employees & Workers has decided to fight back these retrograde policies by mobilizing the entire Central Government employees by unleashing intensive campaign throughout the country culminating in strike. To declare the compaign programme and the strike, a “National Convention of Central Government Employees” will be held at Hyderabad on 10th June 2018 Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM.

Eminent trade Union leaders will attend the Convention. Venue of the National Convention is Sundaraiyya Vigmana Kendra, Bagalingampally, Hyderabad. About 1000 delegates from all states will attend the Convention.
