WOMEN'S DAY: OBSERVE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY HIGHLIGHTING THE THEME OF THE DAY FOR 2013

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY – 08.03.2013

Dear Comrades,

                The International Women' day which falls on 8th March is observed throughout the world. The UN theme for the International women's day 2013 is "A promise is a promise; time for action to end violence against women". This year in India, we saw a massive uprising against the atrocities on women immediately after the barbarous sexual assault on student in Delhi.  She later succumbed to the injuries suffered during the assault.

Thousands of young men and women, students and common people assembled at Vijay Chowk and elsewhere in Delhi and other parts of the country demanding stringent action against the culprits besides asking the Government to make enactment to protect the women. Empowerment of women is an issue that has to be focused and taken to its logical end. There is no shortcut for that. Raising the conscious level of the society at large through sustained campaign and struggles is the only way out. It is a painstaking path, but there is no other alternative.

The brutalities against women, attempt to dispossess the women of their right to property is the outcome of the patriarchal system that has taken roots in our country. In our society today women are being portrayed as a commercial commodity an offshoot of the impact of the neo liberal economic policies where except profit nothing matters. The fight for empowerment of women, hence, cannot be separate from the struggle against finance capital driven neo-liberal economic policies.

We call upon  every affiliate and the State Committee to observe the International Women's Day in a befitting manner by holding Seminar, Convention, meetings etc depending upon the local situation. The programmes may be utilized to drive the theme of the International Women's Day 2013. The apathy of the rulers towards crime against women must be exposed.  We must bring to the public gaze that many in the ruling class have criminal background and are facing charges of assault on women. The convention/seminar/meeting may be preceded by handbills focusing on this issue.

Kindly send us a detailed report on the observance of the International Women's Day

With greetings,

Yours fraternally,

Subject: Admissibility of arrear in 5th CPC for PW Profit and Incentive after Re-Structuring of Cadre on 6th CPC recommendation.

One of our Branch AOs has raised a question as to whether arrear of Piece Work Profit is to be paid alongwith pay arrears as accrued due to implementation of the restructuring of Artisan Cadre with retrospective effect.

This office has examined the matter and as the restructuring w.e.f. 01/01/2006 has resulted in promotional movement of Industrial Employees guided under Factories Act hence they became entitled for Piece Work Earnings at enhanced rate as per minimum of the higher pre-revised Pay Scales corresponding to the revised pay scales in which their pay has been fixed as a consequence on such restructuring. As such, they have also become entitled for resultant Piece Work Arrears and payments may be released accordingly.

In this connection it is requested to please intimate no. of affected individuals whom the resultant piece work arrears to be paid with approximate budgetary implications for such payments.
