Dear Comrades,

ON 26-27 NOVEMBER 2014
Dear Comrades

            The CWC meetings held at Shimla in 12-13 March 2014 and at New Delhi on 18-19 July 2014 decided to mobilise the rank and file on the Charter of Demands finalised and launch agitation in pursuance of the same. The CWC meeting at New Delhi decided to demand cadre restructuring in IA&AD and finalised the detailed proposals there-on.

            The New Delhi CWC decided to observe the following programmes which have since been implemented.

1.  Submission of the demand for restructuring of IA&AD by holding massive meetings and adopting the Restructuring Proposals on 20th August 2014

2. Moblisation Month – September 2014.

            The programme of submitting the cadre restructuring proposals on 20th August 2014 through mass meetings drew very good response across the country. The tour programme there-after has also been undertaken. Some of the visits could not be undertaken for unavoidable reasons. These are being filled in, in a phased manner.

            The third stage of the programme i.e. 24 hour fast by Unit leadership, had to be rescheduled on account of the festival season.

            The CHQ calls upon every unit to observe the programme of 24 hour fast on 26-27 November 2014. The fast shall commence at Lunch hour on 26th Nov and conclude on 17th November 2014, with mass meetings.

            The cadre restructuring proposals that we submitted to the CAG after the CWC meeting on 18-19 July 2014 will be discussed in the bilateral meeting with Dy Comptroller & Auditor General on 19th November 2014.

            All the units should conduct campaign amongst the membership on the Cadre restructuring proposals and the charter of demands as such – prior to the commencement of the 24 hour fast on 26th November 2014, ensuring massive participation on both days i.e. 26th & 27th November 2014.

            Updated version of the Charter of demands is attached. A brief on the Charter of Demands shall be issued separately.

            With greetings,
Yours fraternally

Secretary General
