Dated: I5th January, 2009.

 

            The meeting of the National Executive of the Confederation was held at New Delhi today to review the preparation for an indefinite strike action scheduled to commence from 20th January, 2009.  The meeting heard the Secretaries of the affiliated Associations/Federations and Unions as also the secretaries of the Co-ordination Committees. The Comrades who were deputed to attend the State level Conventions also made their observations at the meeting. Most of the Speakers expressed the need for further time to reach out the membership in far flung areas.  The meeting came to the conclusion that more intensive mobilization and campaign programmes are needed to successfully carry out the strike action with full participation of the membership.  It was therefore decided not to commence the strike action from 20th January, 2009 but defer the same to a future date and carry out an intensified campaign amongst the mass of the employees.  All affiliates will advise their State leadership to visit all branches and hold meetings to explain the Charter of Demands, educate and mobilise their employees for the eventual strike action.  Campaign material circulated by the Confederation (CHQ) (available at its website: confederationhq.blogspot.com) will be translated into vernacular and circulate amongst the members.  The said campaign should be concluded by 15.02.2009. The National Executive will meet again in February to take further decision in the matter.

 

            The representatives of the Confederation were to meet the Hon'ble Prime Minister today in a delegation with Com. Basudeb Acharya, MP to seek his intervention in bringing about a settlement of the Charter of Demands.  This meeting could not take place due to the preoccupation of the Hon'ble Prime Minister.  The meeting is likely to take place on 22nd January, 2009.

 

            The copy of the letter addressed to the Cabinet Secretary to convey the decision of the National Executive is enclosed.

            With greetings

Dear Comrades,

STRIKE NOTICE SERVED; PLUNGE INTO MOBILISATION

            On 2nd January 2009, the Central Government employees assembled in thousands in one voice declared the determination to go on indefinite strike from 20th January 2009 in pursuance of the 20 point charter of demands. After a massive rally in front of the Parliament, the President and Secretary General of Confederation together served strike notice on the government.

            As per the decision of the National Executive of the Confederation, as an affiliate of Confederation All India Audit & Accounts Association served notice for indefinite strike to CAG. The charter of demands has two sections: one, 20 point common demands and two, 16 point departmental demands.

            We have vide our notice requested CAG to discuss and settle the departmental demands. Copy of the strike notice served by Confederation and our Association is enclosed.

SERVE STRIKE NOTICE ON 6TH JANUARY 2009;

HOLD MASSIVE DEMONSTRATIONS

            All the Units should make earnest effort in enlisting the participation of every member in the demonstration on 6th January 2009. The text of the resolution that is to be adopted by the units on 6th January 2009 is once again given along with this circular. They may hand over the notice to the heads of offices in a delegation of the Executive Committee.

Each unit may send report to head quarter on the strike notice serving by sms followed by letter.

All Units should ensure maximum participation in the Convention held at each station.

DO NOT FORGET…

            Please do not forget that the strike action is not only against the Government of India's diabolical game of pampering the rich and mighty while neglecting the ordinary employees, it is also against the inhuman administration of the CAG.

            This fight has to be obviously against the rude, discourteous and self serving IA&AS as well. The CAG's administration has no concern about the constitutional obligations bestowed on CAG; it is concerned about it itself. The fight has to be essentially against the policy of egalitarianism that is being imposed upon the IA&AD, in pursuance of the government policies.

            The reduction of quantum of audit in all areas, the refusal to have full PRI audit, the introduction of risk based audit and over importance to performance audit and total neglect of accounting functions are reflections of deep malaise that has been consciously afflicted on the IA&AD by the administration.

            For minor reasons –many times flimsy and frivolous - the employees and officers are proceeded against, chargesheeted and suspended and heavy penalties imposed.

            But who will take action against an administration that violates the constitution itself?

            This struggle and mobilisation is essentially on these also, for our self respect also.

REVISED JAC CIRCULAR ISSUED

            Certain error occurred in the JAC Circular 7-2008 inadvertently- while placing our demand for pay scales, the pay scales sought for AO/SAO were omitted. The error is deeply regretted.

            Corrected Circular issued by the Convener, Apex JAC is enclosed.

HOLD PROTEST DEMONSTRATION AGAINST GE TAKE OVER IN BIHAR

            All units should adopt the resolution circulated vide Circular 30-2008 urging the state government of Bihar to desist from taking over of GE functions from AG (A&E), Bihar after holding demonstration on 6th January 2009. Draft resolution is reproduced elsewhere.

            Copy of the resolution adopted may be sent to head quarters.

            With greetings,

Yours fraternally
