Sir,

Sub:- Revision of minimum wage payable to Temporary status Casual Labourers – reg.

The minimum wage payable to Temporary Status Casual labourers is revised, every time when the minimum pay of Central Government employees is revised. Eventhough the notification revising the minimum pay of Central Government employees with effect from 01.01.2016 was issued by Government on 25.07.2016, the minimum wage of Temporary status Casual labourer is not yet revised. Pending revision, they are being now paid the minimum wage as per the 6th CPC wage revision.

It is requested that necessary action may be taken for revision of minimum wage payable to Temporary status Casual labourers working in various Central Government department.

Yours faithfully,

NEXT PHASE OF STRUGGLE PROGRAMME ON 21 POINT CHARTER OF DEMANDS OF CONFEDERATION
HUMAN CHAIN OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND PENSIONERS
IN FRONT OF ALL MAJOR CENTRAL GOVERNMENT OFFICES AT ALL IMPORTANT CENTRES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY


(During lunch hour or any convenient time to be decided locally)
ON 22nd JUNE 2017, THURSDAY

As already reported the entire Central Government employees and pensioners are very much aggrieved and agitated over the totally indifferent and negative attitude of the NDA Government against their genuine and legitimate demands. Their anger and protest was visible in the 16th March 2017 one day strike and also in the mass dharna organized in front of Finance Minister’s office and other state/District Centres on 23.05.2017. As the dominant organisations in the NJCA and also JCM National Council Staff Side are not ready for reviving the deferred indefinite strike, the entire employees and pensioners including Autonomous body employees and Pensioners are looking at Confederation as the only organisation of hope which is sincere to their cause.


As the next phase of our agitation, Confederation National Secretariat has decided to organize HUMAN CHAIN OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND PENSIONERS ON 22.06.2017, Thursday, in front of all major Central Government offices at all major Centres. The time can be either lunch hour on any other convenient time fixed locally. Leaders of all fraternal organisations who are supporting our cause may also be invited to be a part of the human chain.

Maximum participation of employees and pensioners may be ensured in the programme. The draft pledge (Oath) to be taken by the participants of the human chain (which may be announced by one leader through sound amplifier and repeated by all participants) will be exhibited in the Confederation website shortly. The same may be translated to local language and printed copies distributed to all participants of the human chain. Big and long banners are to be exhibited in front of the human chain with name of Confederation and demands prominently written on it. If possible a meeting of all participants may be arranged after the pledge (after the human chain) and leaders may address such meetings. Maximum publicity should be given through print and electronic media and also social media.

23rd MAY 2017

MASS DHARNA IN FRONT OF FINANCE MINISTER’S OFFICE A RESOUNDING SUCCESS


ABOUT 3000 CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND PENSIONERS RALLIED IN FRONT OF NORTH BLOCK, THE CENTRE OF GOVERNANCE OF GOVERNMENT OF INDIA

AN OUTBURST OF PROTEST, ANGER, RESENTMENT AND DISCONTENTMENT AGAINST THE BETRAYAL OF NDA GOVERNMENT



The mass dharna organized in front of Union Finance Minister’s office at North Block, New Delhi was a thundering success. Inspite of repeated intervention of the police authorities and also denial of police permission in the last minute, employees and pensioners poured in thousands from all parts of the country and defeated the attempt of the authorities to prevent the Confederation from conducting the dharna at the declared venue, North Block, the centre of governance of Govt. of India. About 3000 employees and pensioners participated. As South Block and North Block are highly protected security zone in Delhi, during the last more than 15 years, no agitational programme could be organized near South/North Block. The dharna participants included employees from various affiliates of Confederation, Central Government Pensioners Associations, Autonomous body employees and pensioners. As a mark of solidarity and support of Central Secretariat employees, the leaders of Central Secretaries Employees Associations also participated in the mass dharna. The demands raised in the 21 point charter of demands of Confederation submitted to Government during the 16th May 2017 strike was highlighted. The demands included honour assurance given by the Group of Minister’s on 30.06.2016 to NJCA leaders, Increase minimum wage and fitment formula, grant revised allowances including HRA and Transport Allowance from 01.01.2016, Implement option-I parity recommended by 7th Pay Commission for pre-2016 pensioners, Implement positive recommendations of Kamalesh Chandra Committee Report on GDS and grant Civil Servant Status to Gramin Dak Sevaks, Regularise casual, Part-time, contingent, daily-rated and contract workers and grant equal pay for equal work, implement pay revision of Autonomous body employees and grant revised pension and Dearness Relief to Autonomous body pensioners, withdraw stringent conditions imposed on MACP promotions, Scrap PFRDA Act and withdraw NPS, stop outsourcing, Fill up all vacant posts, remove 5% condition on compassionate appointments, upgradation of pay scale of LDC/UDC, parity in pay to stenographers, Assistants, Ministerial staff in subordinate offices and in all organized accounts cadres with that of Central Secretariat staff etc.

The mass dharna programme was presided by Com. K. K. N. Kutty, National President, Confederation. Coms: M. Krishnan, Secretary General, Confederation, R. N. Parashar, Secretary General, NFPE, Asok Kumar Kanojia, President, ITEF, Tapas Bose, President, Audit & Accounts Associations, R. Seethalkshmi, Convenor, Women’s Sub Committee, M. K. Kaushik, Ghanashyam, Central Secretariat Employees Association, Worlikar, National Federation of Atomic Energy Employees, Srikrishna Sharma, Central Government Pensioners Association, Rajasthan, Jaipur, Giriraj Singh, President, NFPE & COC Delhi addressed the huge gathering. Com. Vrigu Bhattacharjee, Secretary General, Civil Accounts Employees Association & General Secretary, COC Delhi welcomed the dharna participants and Com. Geetha Bhattacharjee, National Secretariat member, offered vote of thanks. The mass dharna commenced at 11 AM and concluded at 2.30 PM. Slogans condemning the betrayal of the Group of Ministers were shouted.

The successful mass dharna once again proved that it is Confederation and Confederation alone is dare enough to fight against the betrayal of the NDA Government and also against all injustices meted out to the Central Government employees and Pensioners. The unprecedented success of the 16th March 2017 one day strike and the 23rd May 2017 mass dharna programme is a clear message to the Government that Confederation shall not rest, till the genuine and justified demands of the Central Government employees and Pensioners are settled.

Let us march forward to our next programme i.e; HUMAN CHAIN of Central Government Employees and Pensioners in all major cities in front of all important offices on 22nd June 2017.

Yours faithfully,
