Submitted by cgpiadmin on Thu, 09/11/2017 - 14:17

The Joint Platform of Central Trade Unions, comprising Central Trade Union Organisations and all major industry /establishment wise federations have begun the three days' 'mahapadav' (mass dharna) before Parliament against the anti-worker, anti-people and anti-national policies of the Central Government on November 9, 2017.


Talks with the Labour Minister Santosh Gangwar failed on November 7 as the ministry's top brass kept beating around the bush for four hours without providing concrete solutions to issues raised by central trade unions particularly through its 12 points charter of demand. Mahapadav will continue till 11 November 2017.

The Joint Trade Union Platform represents workers and employees from all major sectors of industries and services viz - coal, steel, transport, telecom, petroleum, electricity, port & docks, engineering, construction, scheme-workers etc and employees of central and state government, Railways, banks, insurance, defence production, etc.

The trade unions which have called for the protests are: Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC); All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC); Hind Mazdoor Sabha HMS); Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU); All India United Trade Union Centre (AICCTU); Trade Union Coordination Centre (TUCC); Self Employed Womens Association (SEWA); All India Central Council of Trade Unions (AICCTU); United Trade Union Congress (UTUC); Labour Progressive Federation (LPF) and Mazdoor Ekta Committee (MEC).

According to the unions, the anti-people and anti worker policies of government at the centre are inflicting horrific miseries and hardships on the crores of common people from every walk of life and unemployment is getting aggravated with every passing day.

Call of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 30th August, 2012

Working class representatives from all over the country are gathering on 4th September, at a time when a titanic struggle is going on in our country. The struggle is between the majority of toiling and exploited people and a minority of exploiters. It is between the majority whose labour expands wealth and the minority who enjoy the fruits of wealth creation on the basis of their private property and positions of power.
