AIRF/24(C) Dated: December 28, 2018

All Office Bearers, Zonal Secretaries and
Working Committee Members of AIRF,

Dear Comrades,

While wishing a Happy And Prosperous New Year 2019 to you and your families, I thank you all for dedicated and successful movements beginning from 1st January 2018 to the year end on the call of All India Railwaymen’s Federation, may it be “Awareness Week” from 29th January to 2nd February “Grand Protest” at the Parliament Street on 13th March, “Relay Hunger Strike” of 72 hours from 8th to 11th May, “1968 Strike Golden Jubilee Year” – saluting to our Martyrs on 19th September, “Black Day” for LARSGESS on 4th October, “Running Staff Protest” at the Parliament Street on 12th October, besides 8th March – “International Women’s Day”, “International Labour Day” on 1st May and many other non-bargaining activities, like Blood Donation Camps, helping victims of the floods and other natural calamities, etc. etc. with full enthusiasm and spirit.

I am thankful to you for making best possible efforts to organize the Youth and Women Employees in our fold, holding Zonal, Divisional and Branch level Youth and Women Conferences as also their active participation in all union activities.

I am also thankful to you to get an opportunity to interact with the grassroots workers in various Categorical Conferences, Trainers’ Training Programmes, Educational Programmes, Youth and Women Conferences, etc. etc. , through which problems and miseries, being faced at different workplaces, came to my notice to deal with.

Comrades, we have number of problems and long Charter of Demands, and in spite of making best possible efforts, having negotiations at all levels, i.e. Railway Board, Minister of Railways and various Ministries of the Government of India, we could not achieve much as desired, but because of sustained struggles, we could save LARSGESS, achieve Child Care Leave to single male employees and one more option to opt for the 7th CPC, besides many-many achievements, and besides hope I am confident to achieve remaining demands in the days to come with all your dedicated cooperation.

It is a fact that, we could be able to save the Indian Railways from privatization, due to sustained struggles, but we have to be more vigilant.

Friends, most important for all of us is to face the challenge of Secret Ballot Elections in the New Year 2019. I am confident that, you all will succeed with thumping majority, by leaving no stone unturned, by united efforts to fly high AIRF’s flag all over the Indian Railways.

With Best Wishes and Warm Greetings of the Year 2019 !
