The Honourable Prime Minister,
Government of India,
New Delhi. 110 001
More than 15,000 Central Govt. Employees from all over the country representing various affiliates of the Confederation of Central Government employees and workers have marched to Parliament today to present this Memorandum containing a brief note on the 14 point Charter of demands and seek your kind intervention in finding a settlement of these issues. The employees and workers in all Departments of the Government of India are distressed over the total breakdown of the negotiating machinery. i.e. JCM . The Council meetings are not being held in any Ministry other than Railways, Defence and to a limited extent in the Postal and Atomic Energy Departments. There is no channel of communication that exist between the employees and the heads of Departments with the result that none of their grievances are attended to or addressed. This apart, in quite a number of Departments, the Associations /Federations have not been granted recognition in- spite of fulfilling all the conditions stipulated under the CCS (RSA) Rules, 1993 with the result even bilateral discussions at the level of heads of offices have been dispensed with.
We, therefore, once again request your good-self to kindly give necessary direction to the concerned that the issues we have presented through this memorandum are addressed immediately.
