Dear Comrades,



            Nearly 10 crores of workers across the country struck work on 7th Sept 2010 registering their emphatic protest against the anti-people economic policies including sky rocketing price rise. As per reports received so far, the participation of central government employees in the strike has been satisfactory.


            As far as IA&AD is concerned, we could see a slide in the participation with only few stations reporting total participation. Allahabad (Accounts), Audit & Accounts Units in Kolkata and Guwahati (Accounts) have reported total strike where as in Kerala (both Audit & Accounts) there has been significant improvement in the participation. In Chennai (Accounts), Hyderabad and Mumbai also a good number of employees participated in the strike. In Gwalior the employees observed it as a black day holding lunch hour demonstration in support of the strike action. In Shimla also, demonstration was held.


            It could be seen that compared to last occasions there was much less mobilisation and participation in the strike this time.


            We will meet in the National Executive Committee and Working Committee very shortly to take stock of the situation and to chalk out future strategies to overcome the shortcomings and to surge back.


            Head Quarters of the Association greets all the comrades who joined the strike on 7th Sept 2010 despite adverse situation prevailing in almost all stations.


            The press statement issued by Confederation is enclosed.


            With regards



Yours fraternally

Abiding by the call of the Central Trade Unions and endorsed by the all India Federations, the Confederation of Central Government employees and workers organized the one day strike today the 7th September, 2010 against the increasing inflation, price rise, demanding the revival of the Universal Public Distribution system, against the policy of privatization of Public Sector and Governmental organizations, against contractorisation, outsourcing and above all demanding the scrapping of the new contributory pension scheme introduced to replace the existing statutory defined benefit pension Scheme.  The strike action elicited total participation  of Central Government employees in the States of Kerala, Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Assam, Tripura, Meghalaya, and 70 to 80% in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand Karnataka, Rajasthan Bihar, Chattisgarh, and partial in Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Orissa etc.  In Delhi the strike participation was restricted to the employees of the RMS division and a few other organizations belonging to the Postal Department.


The Strike was an impressive indication of the growing discontent of the Central Government employees over the Neo-liberal Economic Policies, which has threatened the job security of the workers, redundancy due to outsourcing, corporatisation and privatization of Government departments, contractorisation of the functions of about 10 lakh employees belonging to the lower strata and the big erosion of the value of the wages due to the price rise.


The Confederation's National Secretariat while congratulating the Central Government employees for their unstinted co-operation in making the strike a grand success has called upon them to be prepared and mobilize themselves further for a greater form of agitational programme, if the Government continues to tread the pro-rich polices.
