Dear Comrades,

 

PFRDA BILL ABOUT TO BE ADOPTED

REGISTER STRONG PROTEST

Hold 2-hour walkout & demonstration on the day PFRDA bill is taken up for adoption

 

            The government, in a fix over the accentuating fiscal turbulence on account of mounting current account deficit and falling rupee, is going all out to surrender the best social security scheme permitting the transnational corporate sharks to loot the hard earned money of the civil servants and workers. They say implementing the Pension Bill is required to instill confidence in the investors ie in other words, the investor confidence would grow only when the poor, working people of the country is permitted to be looted of their hard earned money! And the ruling dispensation is preparing for it with the help of main opposition grouping – including the one who has recently deserted it. This is how the government plan to overcome the present day crisis! Plunging the commoner to more miseries!

 

            The opposition party says that PFRDA bill is introduced by the NDA government and hence they are duty bound to support it.

 

            In the given context, the amendment moved by Com. Basudev Acharya, Leader of CPI-M group in Lok Sabha, for ensuring minimum pension as is guaranteed under the statutory pension scheme is sure to be defeated. It is time to realise who is with us and who are not.

 

            The whole interest of the ruling dispensation and the opposition is to "instill confidence in the investors" and not about securing a safe life for the employees who spends their prime time at the service of the nation.

 

            Confederation and the All India State Government Employees Federation have jointly  given a call for 2hour walk-out & demonstration in all work places on the day the PFRDA bill is taken up for adoption by the Lok Sabha. We endorse the call and call upon every unit to go all out for the successful implementation of the walkout programme against PFRDA bill.

 

            Without loss of time all the units may educate the membership on the pernicious effects of the bill and also about the fact that this battle has to fought and won on own strength. The 2-hour walk out may be carried out successfully in co-ordination with the local COCs.

 

            Confederation is Circular is enclosed.

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVT. EMPLOYEES & WORKERS

1st Floor, North Avenue Post office Bldg, New Delhi-11001

 

WITHDRAW CONTRIBUTORY PENSION SCHEME

SCRAP PFRDA BILL

 

PFRDA BILL LISTED IN THE AGENDA OF THE CURRENT SESSION OF THE PARLIAMENT

 

CONFEDERATION CALLS UPON THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES TO ORGANIZE TWO HOURS WALK-OUT PROGRAMME ON THE DAY WHEN THE BILL IS

TAKEN UP FOR DISCUSSION

IN PARLIAMENT

 

 

As you are aware, Central Government is going ahead with their agenda on pension privatization. The controversial PFRDA Bill (Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority Bill) is listed as an agenda item for the current Parliament session. The bill may be taken up for discussion in Parliament on any day. Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers has opposed the Contributory Pension Scheme and also the PFRDA Bill from the very beginning.

 

We have conducted so many agitational programmes including strike. The left parties in the parliament have also strongly opposed the Bill. Inspite of the opposition from employees (both Central Government and State Government Employees & Teachers) and also from left political parties, the Central Government is not ready to withdraw the contributory Pension scheme or to scrap the PFRDA Bill.

 

The National Secretariat of the Confederation has viewed the move of the Government with grave concern and decided to call upon the entirety of the Central Government Employees & Workers to organize mass protest demonstration in front of all offices throughout the country after walking out from offices for two hours, on the day when the bill is taken up for discussion in Parliament or on the next day if information is received late.

 

All India office bearers, State level COCs and other COCs are requested to make the two hours walk out programme a grand success.

 

With Greetings,

Yours fraternally,
