No Let up in Preparations for the Indefinite Strike, Please
Deferment of commencement of indefinite strike to 11th July 2016 should not lead to a situation where-in we relax thinking that there is much time in our disposal for the preparations.
We must not forget that the preparations for the strike such as issuance of handbills, holding of group meetings explaining in detail the different aspects of the 7 CPC report and our objection and aversion to the recommendations of the 7 CPC is equally important as the strike itself.
In the group meetings we should explain to the mass of employees what had been the demand of the Staff Side, JCM before the 7 CPC, the basis for the minimum wage of Rs 26000/- to MTS, the principle/rationale guiding the demand for need based minimum wage, ratio between the minimum and maximum etc and the recommendations of the 7 CPC – fixing of minimum wage at Rs 18,000, faulty basics for computation of minimum wages, mutilation of the principle of need based minimum wages and dilution of the Supreme court directive on improvement to the 1957 formula, higher weightage for higher cadres leading to a higher ratio between minimum and maximum wages etc.
The denial of the 7 CPC to discuss the issue of denial of pension and any social security measures to the post 2004 recruited personnel is an issue that should agitate one and all.
The media reports that the government is considering appropriating 50% of the increased wages the employees would get after the implementation of 7 CPC recommendations for the purpose of creating a “recapitalisation fund” for the banks which are looted by big corporates by lakhs of crores of Rupees.
Media will not make such a report – not by one media, but by many that also on regular basis – without a basis, without getting an inkling of what is going on within the government.
Ambanis, Bajajs et all will loot the public exchequer and the workers will be made to pay for it – this seems to be the guiding principle. All along the worker was made to pay for the misdeeds of these powerful crooks but it was discreetly, now it seems the loot and the exploitation of the worker/labour is getting quite naked and accepted norm.
These dangers are also to be taken to the mass of employees. Only enlightened, well informed members will be able to understand the gravity of the situation and thus be able to make the strike a grand success.
The months of April and May are by and large considered as months of vacation where many employees leave their station with family once the school vacation starts. The continuous and sustained campaign will ensure that all the employees are covered and educated, preparing one and all for the indefinite strike from 11 July 2016. The serving of strike notice on 9th June 2016 itself should make the government sit up and take note of the growing anger amongst the central government employees. We have no time to lapse; we will have to be on our job without any let up with all vigour and earnestness.
As intimated earlier, the 47th Conference of All India Audit & Accounts Association would be held at Nagpur. The Nagpur Associations have confirmed the dates of the Conference – from 8th August to 11th August 2016. Formal notification will be issued in the month of June only. All the Units are requested to reserve the tickets to and from Nagpur without waiting for formal notification.
All the Units are requested to include atleast one woman comrade as delegate, more are most welcome. We should do everything to improve the participation of women comrades in the organisational activities and try to develop them into leadership. Women Convention would be held during the conference.
Audit & Accounts Pensioners’ Association
Confederation had directed all its affiliates to organise the pensioners departmentally, bringing it under the banner of National Co-ordination Committee of Pensioners Associations (NCCPA) in the same pattern of Confederation. Postal, Income Tax etc have already formed their organisations. We are left behind. During the 47th Conference at Nagpur, we may also take steps to form IA&AD Pensioners Association.
