7th Pay Commission: Central government employees to abstain from work today demanding hike in pay

7th Pay Commission: Central government employees to abstain from work today demanding hike in pay

New Delhi: Central government employees will abstain from work on Friday to press for review of the hike in minimum pay and raising fitment factor 3.68 times from 2.57 times approved by the government based on the pay commission recommendations.

The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) representing 33 lakh central employees has decided to join the general strike on Friday in order to get their demand of hike in minimum pay, as the government’s recent talks on Tuesday and Thursday with them got no result.

The Centre has fixed a minimum wage of Rs 18,000 in the pay hike approved by the Cabinet on June 29. However, the central government employees are protesting the decision calling it a meagre rise in view of the price rise.

“Government has initiated talks with NJCA. We welcome it. But the decision was not made of hike in minimum pay,” Convener of NJCA Shiv Gopal Mishra said.

On August 30 and September 1, the representatives of NJCA including Mishra were called for a meeting with secretaries of national anomaly committee and allowances committee respectively.

““I don’t think there will be result, and if there is any result, that will be sufficient for the central government employees. They have delayed the issue of minimum wage and fitment formula,” Mishra said.

Under the fitment formula, the government multiplied the minimum wage of Rs 7,000 fixed in the last pay commission with 2.57 and arrived at a minimum pay of Rs 18,000 per month.

The employees are demanding for the fitment formula of 3.68, which will result in minimum monthly pay about to Rs 26,000.

The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) is an umbrella organisation of various Central Government employees’ unions, including Railways, post and telegraph and Income Tax.

However, the promise was already made by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to consider to hike the minimum pay of central government employees beyond Rs 18,000.


Trade unions go on nationwide strike, to hit essential services

New Delhi: The Central Trade Unions (CTU) have called for a strike across the country on Friday to express their disagreement with the Central Government’s “unilateral labour reforms and anti-worker policies”.

The unions have claimed that this year’s strike will be bigger as the number of striking workers is expected to swell as much as 18 crore, larger than last year when around 14 crore workers participated.
Gurudas Dasgupta General Secreatary of All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) said, “Most important is control of inflation, particularly the food inflation, social security for the unorganised labour, minimum wage for all unorganised should be Rs. 18,000, road is an investment for profit making public sector, low margin of banks etc are the main demand on which we are going on strike.”

Essential services such as banking, public transport and telecom will be affected by the strike.
The CTUs will strike work protesting against what they call the government’s apathy towards their 12-point charter of demands including a monthly minimum wage of Rs. 18,000, controlling price rise and assured minimum monthly pension of Rs. 3,000.

However, Indian Railways and other central government employees will not participate in strike as government has already constituted a committee to look into their demand of raising monthly minimum wage from Rs 18,000 to about Rs. 26,000 under the 7th Pay Commission.

Resonating similar sentiments, Roman Pandey of Indian National Trade Union Congress told ANI that they are against the handing over of defence and railway industry to the private players.

“We want that ILO conventional 87, 98 needs to be ratified because this gives protection of job security and social security to working people and they have the right to join union of their choice, they can go for collective bargaining. These global rights are being denied by the government. wherever the assured in Geneva in ILO that we are going to ratify, we are fighting for that,” he added.

The Bhartiya Majdoor Sangh (BMS) has decided not to participate in strike.

“We gave the notice to the government, but when the government took the step forward then we decided to withdraw from the strike. The effect of strike is not visible, as the entire rail system is working. They have tried a lot to mislead the people but that phase is over, now no one from Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh will be part of this strike,” BMS organising secretary Pawan Kumar told ANI.

Last year also on September 2, the union has opted out of the strike at the last moment.

Central Trade Unions reiterate countrywide General Strike on 2nd September 2016 – Press Statement

Central Trade Unions Reiterate countrywide General Strike on 2nd Sept, 2016 Group of Ministers (GOM) Announcement an eyewash

The Central Trade Unions reiterate the call for countrywide general strike on 2nd September 2016 against the anti-worker and anti-people policies of the Govt. in view of utterly unresponsive and undemocratic attitude of the Govt. The CTUs view the announcements made by Committee of Ministers as an eyewash and decide to go ahead with the Strike. Meagre raise in minimum wage to Rs.9100/- per month in central sphere is not binding on the States.

The CTUOs expressed dismay over utterly negative attitude of the Govt. towards basic demands of the workers on minimum wages as per consensus formulation of the Indian Labour Conference, on universal social security including pension for all workers including those in unorganised sector, against mass scale contractorisation of permanent and perennial work, against onslaught on basic rights of the workers through so called labour-law-reforms through various state governments and also by the centre in the background of large scale violation of labour laws being promoted by both the central govt and also many state govts, desperate move for privatisation/disinvestment of strategic and sensitive public sector units, and promoting limitless FDI in sensitive sectors like Defence, Railways, Banks, Insurance, Retail and Pharmaceuticals etc. which is also against the interest of the national economy.

The CTUOs made it clear that the desperate bid of the Govt for changing the labour laws both through central and many state govts is basically designed to throw even the overwhelming majority of the organised sector workers out of the coverage and purview of all basic labour laws which would render all other rights and benefits of the working people virtually meaningless.

The CTUOs also noted with dismay that the Govt while making public statement on being positive on the demands of the workers, has actually been actively pushing through executive measures, one after another, just in the opposite direction, against the interest of the working people in the grab of ensuring so called “else of doing business”. All these proactive initiatives militate against the basic interests and rights of the working people. Even the non-striking Central Trade Union also officially recorded its opposition.

The CTUOs expressed satisfaction over the increasing response by the workers throughout the country to the call for united action. The strike is going to be complete in industrial sectors such as transport, financial, power, coal, textile, automobile, port and dock, steel, oil, defence production, scheme, education etc. sectors and Central and State Govts. employees. In some states it is going to be bandh like situation.

It is unfortunate that during the past one year, the Group of Ministers appointed for discussion with the CTUOs on 12 point charter has not convened even a single meeting but has been only talking to BMS which has not joined the strike call. The CTUOs denounce such undemocratic bias of the Govt.

The CTUOs condemn the move of the central govt to divide the workers in the face of ongoing strike campaign and create confusion through making misleading statements on its so called positive attitude on workers’ demands both directly and through their various agencies and allies.

While expressing confidence that such dubious action to divide the workers will not succeed, the CTUOs appeal to the working people of the country irrespective of affiliations to further widen their unity and unitedly combat the anti-worker, anti-people policies of the Govt through making the call for countrywide general strike on 2nd September 2016 a total success.
