Press Release
                                                                                   1st September 2016

Foil the Conspiracy to Sabotage the Countrywide General Strike: 

The Union Labour Minister, Shri Bandaru Dattatreya had sent a release to Media and press on 31st August 2016 at 9 pm trumpeting on “NDA Govt’s commitment to fair earnings and social security for the workers.”

 CITU considers this statement a deliberate “misinformation campaign” to create confusion and to sabotage the countrywide general strike on 2nd September 2016, which all sections of workers and employees have already prepared to join.

 The Labour Minister claimed to have announced a 42% rise in minimum wage for the workers in central sphere. What does that mean for the workers and the unions who have demanded fixation of statutory minimum wage for all workers in the country at not less than Rs 18000/- per month? This means that minimum wage for workers in the “C” category areas should be at least Rs 18000, making it proportionally higher in “B” and “A” category areas, i.e., Rs 22320 and 26560 respectively. The government’s offer of Rs 9100/-, Rs 11362/- and Rs 13598/- respectively for the workers of central sphere in “C”, “B” and “A” category areas respectively is not even half of what all the central trade unions including BMS unitedly demanded and have been pursuing since last five years; they vociferously argued for the same on the latest occasion in the meeting of the Minimum Wage Advisory Board held on 29th August 2016.  How could a trade union worth its name accept such a mockery on their genuine demand formulated on the basis of a formula accepted by the central govt also? BMS may consider this mockery of offer a “historic achievement” owing to their compulsion, but others cannot.

And who is going to be benefited by this offer. This offer is for the workers in the central sphere which as per Minister’s own estimate is 70 lakh. This will not benefit even one per cent of the non-agricultural workforce in the country, if at all it is implemented. For 99% plus workers of the country this offer means nothing at all. Does the minister have any answer for them?

The trade unions had been all along demanding for a statutory binding arrangement for Minimum Wage applicable throughout the country. Making noise over some marginal increase, that too for the extremely minority section of workers in the central sphere is aimed at deceiving the overwhelming majority of the workforce.

Hon’ble Minister announced that the Govt will pay the employers contribution in provident fund and pension for three years. Why should the national exchequer pay for employers’ statutory liability toward PF and pension? But this is a government that has been allowing the corporate to pilfer national exchequer by not paying due taxes (Rs 5 lakh crore), indulging them not to pay back loans taken from banks (Rs 8.5 lakh crore); they are also paying the employer the cost of training the apprentices partially, and now the Govt has decided to shoulder employers’ statutory liability toward PF and pension for three years not from their own pocket but from the national exchequer. What else can be called loot on national asset? Claiming these anti national measures as ‘commitment to national development’ is nothing but hypocrisy.

CITU asserts that this kind of gimmickry will not deter the workers of the country from their struggle. THE STRIKE IS ON

The Central Trade Unions of the Country along with all Independent National Federations of employees of different industries and services including Confederation of Central Govt. Employees and Workers, Banks, Insurance, Defence, Telecome, State and Central Government Departments and Public Sector Departments have decided to organize All India General Strike on 2nd September 2016, against the anti-people, anti-workers policies and authoritarian attitude of the Government. Intensive campaign and preparation to make the general strike a resounding historical success is going on in full swing throughout the country. The attitude of the Government is profoundly negative and hugely challenging to the working class including Central Govt. employees. The issues in the Charter of demands submitted by the Trade Unions to the Govt. relate to basic interest of the country’s economy and also issues concerning the livelihood of the working people of both organized and unorganized sectors.

After long hue and cry the Government implemented the recommendations of 7th CPC without any changes in the recommendation on minimum pay and fitment formula. Government is not ready to modify the 7th CPC recommendations, which is worst ever made by any pay commissions. The assurance given to the staff side regarding enhancement minimum pay and fitment formula is yet to be implemented. Even the Government was not ready to correct the simple arithmetic mistakes in the Pay Matrix and the levels recommended by the 7th  CPC while its implementation even after 13 Member Empowered Committee of Secretaries (ECoS) and the Implementation Cell worked on about 7 months.  All other retrograde recommendations like reduction in the percentage of HRA, abolition of 52 allowances etc. are yet to be modified. The policy offensives of the Government like downsizing, outsourcing, contractorisation, corporatization and privatization has affected all Central Government Departments and employees in a worst manner. Ban on creation of new posts and non-filling up of about six lakhs vacant posts had increased the work load of the existing employees and adversely affected the efficiency of the services. The New Pension Scheme (NPS) implemented with affect from 01.01.2004, is nothing but a “No Pension Scheme”, as it is fully dependent on the vagaries of share market forces. The 5% ceiling on compassionate appointment is not yet removed. Overall the attitude of the Government is totally negative towards the Central Government Employees and Pensioners.

The attitude of the Department also is synchronizing with the Government policies. Department arbitrarily delaying decision on various issues such as Cadre Review, Option to switch over to pension, Revision of Overtime and Night Duty Allowances, Promotional Avenue after acquiring additional qualification, revision of norms for recruitment and promotion policy and the anomalies, filling of posts, etc. 

To protest against the totally negative and arbiotrary attitude of the Central Government and Department NFAEE and its affiliates unanimously decided to join with the main stream of the work force of the country and to join in the One Day Strike on 2nd September 2016. All employees are requested to join in the one day strike along with crores of work force of the country on 2nd September 2016

             National Federation of Atomic Energy Employees (NFAERER) along with other Central Government Employees under the banner of Confederation of Central Govt Employees & Workers have been continuously fighting against pension reforms implemented by Govt in tune with the neo-liberal policies and demanding SCRAPPING OF THE NEW PENSION SYSTEM (NPS). With out prejudice to our demand to scrap the new Pension Schme, we have been demanding that those employees who are covered by NPS should be eligible for payment of Death cum Retirement Gratuity (DCRG) and Family Pension and also Govt guaranteed Minimum Pension and Compensation for price rise (Dearness Relief). 
             Now the Govt has conceded one of our demand by  issuing  orders to extend the benefit of Gratuity to the Employees under NPS. Further the Cabinet has decided to constitute a committee for streamlining the implementation of NPS. We shall present the remaining issues before that Committee also. Scrapping of NPS is one of the main demand of 2016 September 2nd General Strike also.
