Submitted by cgpiadmin on Sun, 17/05/2015 - 14:56

In a massive rally in Delhi on April 28, 2015, Central government employees announced their decision to go on an indefinite strike from November 23, 2015. They placed a 10 point charter of demands to the government. The Federations of Railway workers and Defence Sector workers announced that they would carry out a strike ballot in October to decide on their participation in the proposed indefinite strike action.

The rally was held under the chairmanship of M Raghavaiah, general secretary, National Federation of Indian Railwaymen. Shiv Gopal Mishra, convener of the National Joint Council of Action of Central Government Employees (NJCA) conducted the proceedings. Those who addressed the rally included leaders of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, All India Railwaymen Federation (AIRF) and National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), National Federation of Postal Employees, and Federation of National Postal Organisations.

The resolution adopted by the rally of government employees condemned, amongst other things, the Debroy committee report as nothing but a clear road map for privatization of Indian Railways.

The charter of demands of the government employees include

  • Effect wage revision of the central government employees from January 1, 2014.
  • Come out with Seventh Pay Commission Report within time period of 18 months. Include the Grameen Dak Sewaks within the ambit of the 7th CPC.  Settle all anomalies of the 6th CPC.
  • No privatisation, PPP or FDI in railways and defence establishments and no corporatisation of postal services.
  • No ban on recruitment/ creation of post.
  • Scrap PFRDA Act and re-introduce the defined benefit statutory pension scheme.
  • No outsourcing; contractualisation, privatisation of government functions.
  • Regularise the existing daily rated/casual and contract workers and absorption of trained apprentices.
  • No labour reforms which are inimical to the interests of the workers.
  • Remove the ceiling on payment of bonus.

Mazdoor Ekta Lehar considers the struggle of the central government employees against privatization and in defence of their livelihood and rights, as an integral part of the struggle of the entire working class of our country against the anti social offensive of the bourgeoisie.

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.
