Dear Comrades,


                The campaign programme chalked out by the National Executive to ensure the successful implementation of March to Parliament on 26th July, 2012 is progressing well.  Apart from the arrangements made by the major affiliates for the boarding of participants at Delhi on 25th and 26th, Confederation CHQ has made independent arrangements meant for those comrades who are members of smaller affiliates.  The State Committees, who take care of these comrades are requested to indicate the number of comrades for whom the Confederation CHQ is to take responsibility so that allotment  for accommodation for each State could be made and intimated.

 

                Many comrades have demanded the updating of the brief on each demand included in the charter.  Due to paucity of time, this could not be done .  We may be able to do so only after the 26th July, programme of March to Parliament.  In the meantime , the affiliates may please inform us as to the status of the functioning  of the JCM Departmental Councils/Regional Councils , especially the date of the last meeting of the Departmental Council.  We have been informed that the next meeting of the National Anomaly Committee would be held on 17th July,2012.  The telegram campaign  undertaken by the affiliates of the Confederation had its salutary impact.  We must continue our endeavour to ensure that the Departmental Councils regularly meet and its composition as at the beginning is maintained. 

 

                We have prepared a comparative chart of the price of 14 commodities, which go into the computation of minimum wage.  Placed there-under is the computation of the Minimum wage on the basis of the prices of the requisite articles as in January, 2012.  It could be seen there-from that while the prices on an average registered an increase of 152% the DA compensation had only been 65%. This fact may kindly be used to bring home the necessity of revision of wages immediately. 

 

                With greetings,

 Yours rraternally,

K.K.N. Kutty
Secretary General
