Dear Comrade,


                              Sub:       28th Feb. 2012 General Strike of the working class.


                You may be aware that the Joint Platform of Central Trade Unions (including INTUC and BMS) has decided to organise a general strike on 28th Feb; 2012.  This is part of a resistance movement against the present economic policies of the Government of India, which had been adversely impacting the standard of living of the working people of the country.  The fixed wage earners were the worst victims of the neo liberal economic policies.


                The Confederation of Central Government employees and workers as in the past, has decided to take part in the struggle for they had to bear the brunt of the onslaught and the Govt. continues to impose untold miseries on their working conditions.  This apart, the erosion of the value of wages over the last 5 years had been so immense that the wage revision that took place in 2006 in the case of CGEs has been totally nullified.  Since the Officers at the middle management level are also victims of these policies and suffer equally, if not, more like the employees, we may request you to kindly explore the possibilities of the Confederation of Central Government Officers organisations taking part in the struggle.  Needless to emphasise, your positive decision in the matter might make the struggle much more successful and enthuse the employees.


                Thanking you and with greetings,

Yours sincerely,



K.K.N. Kutty

Secretary General.
