RESOLUTION ADOPTED AT THE MASSIVE RALLY AT JANTAR MANTAR (PARLIAMENT STREET) ON 28 APRIL 2015

The massive congregation of the representatives of Central Govt Employees who have come from various parts of the country held at Jantar Mantar before the Indian Parliament on 28-04-2015 decided to commence the indefinite strike action from 23rd November 2015 from 6 AM having failed to elicit any positive response from the Government in settlement of the 10 point Charter of Demands submitted months back. It was also decided that the Railways and Defence organizations will conduct the strike Ballot as per the provision of the Industrial Disputes Act and Recognition Rules before commencing the strike from 23-11-2015.

The massive gathering adopted the resolution unanimously exhorting the central Govt. Employees to prepare for the eventual strike action in all earnestness and make it a historic one.

The meeting congratulates the employees for forging exemplary unity and carrying out various programmes chalked out by the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) after the national convention on 11th December 2014. Even though the Govt. was compelled to set up the 7th CPC on account of the sanctions generated through the action programmes, Govt. has refused to grant Interim Relief and merger of DA and excluded the Gramin Dak Sewaks of the Postal Department from the ambit of the 7th CPC.

 It is a matter of regret that in spite of public admission of non-privatisation of Indian Railways by Prime Minister of India and assurance of Minister of Railways on various occasions, including Parliament, Dr. Deb Roy Committee had submitted a report which is a clear roadmap for privatisation of IR.

 The meeting noted that the Government has purposely ensured the closure of Joint Consultative

Machinery, the negotiating forum set up in 1966 for Central Government Employees to discuss and bring about settlement of their demands.

 The meeting chaired by Secretary (Personnel) on 25th February 2015  did not bring about settlement on any single issue of the Charter of Demands.

 The meeting unanimously decided to demand before the Government to convene the meeting of National Council, JCM immediately and settle the following charter of demands, if at all it wants to avoid confrontation with its own employees.

CHARTER OF DEMANDS:-

  1. Effect wage revision of the Central Government Employees from 01.01.2014, accepting the memorandum of the Staff Side JCM; ensure 5-year wage revision in future; grant Interim Relief and Merger of 100% of DA. Ensure submission of the 7th CPC report within the stipulated time frame of 18 months; include the Grameen Dak Sewaks within the ambit of the 7th Settle all anomalies of the 6th CPC.
  1. No privatisation, PPP or FDI in Railways and Defence Establishments and no corporatisation of postal services.
  1. No Ban on recruitment/creation of post.
  1. Scrap PFRDA Act and re-introduce the defined benefit statutory pension scheme.
  1. No outsourcing; contractorisation, privatisation of governmental functions; withdraw the proposed move to close down the Printing Presses; the publication, form store and stationery departments and Medical Stores Depots; regularise the existing daily rated/casual and contract workers and absorption of trained apprentices.
  1. Revive the JCM functioning at all levels as an effective negotiating forum for settlement of the demands of the CGEs.
  1. Remove the arbitrary ceiling on compassionate appointments.
  1. No labour reforms which are inimical to the interest of the workers.
  1. Remove the ceiling on payment of Bonus.
  1. Ensure five promotions in the service career.

 The meeting authorized the National JCA to take appropriate and necessary steps needed to make the indefinite strike beginning from 23rd November 2015 an unprecedented and grand success.

    actually indefinite strike is to be done on 2017

  5. Unity is strength….! here goes the long saying “Workers of the World Unite”. Lets be united. Lets stay united against such capitalist forces. Workers Unity zindabad.

  6. One-and-a-half-month’s or a two-month’s time would have been sufficient for preparation of indefinite strike and the same should have been scheduled in the month of June / July. November is a too long rope given to Govt. Yet I hope that the leadership of Joint Council of Action would give importance to all points in Charter and a united fight would take place if demands are not achieved.

      This is a long fight. we are fighting this for long long time. For every battle preparation matters most. Therefore six month preparations are fair enough for this war for rights. Brace yourself and your colleagues for this war. May has almost gone and It would not be a better idea to go out on one day in june and call for strike. Let’s do strong preparations and then go for the final call.

  7. sir, it is very long time the 23rd Nov-2015 is nearby Jan-16 I think govt forgot the employees. The union leaders strongly protest. Govt not bothering.

    7th Pay Commission must look into the aspect of difference between lowest paid and highest paid amongst the Govt. employees. The difference should not be more than five times, if not three. Now the difference is around 15 times. This should be stopped. Though the top level officers are considered to be pllaners and implementors, in reality the lower level people are toiling while the higher level officers are enjoying their life considering their job a part time one.
