Make the 2nd September 2015 All India Strike a historic success.

Dear Comrades,
 We have placed on our website the synopsis of the discussion the leaders of the Central Trade Unions had with the Group of Ministers on the 12 point charter of demands. The Central Trade Unions evaluated the Government’s response to the strike call and have come to the conclusion that in the absence of any tangible result, the strike action must take place.  The only issue on which there had been a concrete proposal from the Government was on the question of raising the bonus ceiling.  In fact such an assurance has been given by the earlier Government also.  Due to the pressure exerted by the employing class, the said assurance could not be translated into reality.  To have the assurance to be put into practice, the Bonus Act has to be amended and that is possible only in the next session of the parliament.  In other words, if one is to believe the assurance held out by the Government on the question of raising the ceiling for bonus computation, it can only have prospective effect i.e. for the next year 2016.  We firmly believe that the corporate would not allow the present government to give effect to this assurance.  The acrimonious ceiling on bonus while allowing unlimited extraction of profit for the companies is to be fought out through bitter struggles.
There had been no word from the Government on the question of rolling back its proposals on the labour reforms. The proposed labour reforms will hurt the working class most.  The regularization of contract workers, payment of minimum wage, ensuring statutory Pension benefit, the registration or recognition of trade unions within a stipulated time limit to enable the workers to have the right to collective bargaining, the non implementation of the agreements reached at the various tripartite Labour conferences were some of the significant issues on which the working class sought settlement. Introduction of 100% FDI in Railways, 49% in Defencecorporatisation & privatisation of government entities, end for contract/casual temporary employment also met with stoic silence or rejection.  The Group of Ministers has successfully eluded the issues. The BMS unions have declared that they would withdraw from the strike action.  Their decision being political based is understandable, but is difficult to appreciate. We can only hope against hope that they would realize the reality of the situation in the days to come and become part of the joint struggles very soon.
 The 7th CPC has sought further time to submit its report.  They are now likely to submit their report by 31st December, 2015.  Given the way the commission had acted on this vital issue, we are not certain of it.  It is on the specious plea that they would be submitting their report within the stipulated time, they had rejected our demand for interim relief.  They ought to have submitted an interim report to the Government before seeking further time on the memorandum submitted by the Staff Side on merger of DA and Interim relief.  Even if the report is submitted say by 31stDecember, 2015,  which we feel is unlikely, the Government is bound to take another six months to take a view on the Commission’s recommendations.   It is incumbent upon the National JCA to meet immediately and take appropriate decision in the light of the unexpected step taken by the Commission in seeking further time to submit its report.  They must go ahead with the decision to go on strike from 23rd November, 2015 demanding the Commission to submit urgently an interim report on merger of DA and Interim relief. 
There had been no positive steps taken by the government to revive the functioning of the JCM at National or Departmental levels.  There appears to be no intention on their part to cause discussion on our charter of demands.   In this background we must revitalize and rejuvenate the functioning of our   Organizations at all levels.  We have received excellent reports of the strike preparation from all over the country.


With greetings,

Yours fraternally,


Secretary General

Com. S. K. Vyas Ji, the legendary leader of Central Government employees and Pensioners is no more. He passed away at about 08:20 PM on 13th February 2015 at a Jaipur (Rajasthan) hospital, where he was admitted a few days back after a massive heart attack. He was recovering, but all of a sudden, the situation worsened and he passed away. He was 85 years. His funeral took place at Jodhpur, his native place, on 14th February 2015.

Com. Vyasji was the Secretary General of the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers for forty years from 1967 to 2006. He was the President and Secretary General of All India Audit & Accounts Association for a long time. He continued as an Advisor of the Confederation and also as the General Secretary of National Coordination Committee of Pensioners (NCCP) and Bharat Central Pensioners Confederation (BCPC) till death.

Com. Vyas Ji has lead various struggles and strike actions of the Central Government Employees and was in the forefront of the leadership which organised the first strike action of the Central Government Employees after Independence, in the year 1960. Com. Vyas was jailed and dismissed from service. He played an important role in rallying the Central Government employees alongwith the striking Railway employees in the year 1974. He was an able and uncompromising negotiator with the Government in the JCM National Council and standing committee. He was responsible for many of the benefits and allowances enjoyed by the Central Government employees. The cost indexation of wages was earned by the Government employees through the sustained struggles and efforts in 1960s under his leadership. The Confederation of Central Government Employees & workers representing 1.5 million civil servants was in the forefront of the incessant struggles and strike actions organised by the Indian working class against the neo-liberal economic policies of the Government. Com. Vyas Ji’s vision and ideological clarity has made the Confederation, part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class movement of India.

Com. Vyasji was the friend, Philosopher, guide and everything for the Central Government employees movement. In the more than six decades long trade union life, Com. Vyasji endeared himself to every section of the Central Government employees. His death is an irreparable and irreplaceable  loss to us. He was a great leader, symbol of simplicity, a gem of a person and a leader who is down to earth. Extremely polite, kind hearted and compassionate. One of the finest human being, tallest leader, a gentle mentor and a legend.

The National Secretariat of the Confederation bows its head down before the memory of the legendary leader and dips our flag paying tearful tribute to this valiat fighter of the Trade Union movement. While paying homage to this stalwart, we extend our heartfelt condolences to his bereaved family members and also to the entire Central Government employees fraternity.

He is in our hearts! His memories will be forever with us! His long saga of struggle for the cause of the employees and workers will inspire the generations to come.

Demanded VII- CPC to recommend that in the light of the DOPT order dated 10-2-2009 granting Special Duty Allowance to All India Service to the employees to all personnel  @ 37 ½ % of pay.
Leave Travel Concession
Requested  to consider recommending the following relaxations/improvements.
1. Permission for air journey for all categories of employees to and from NE Region.
2. Permission for personnel posted in NE Region for a journey within NE Region.
3. To increase the periodicity of the LTC once in two years.
4. Explore the possibility of allowing an employer to undertake tour outside India     
    once in his life time in lieu of the LTC.
Secretariat & Field Offices
Demanded  to ensure that the parity of pay structure obtaining in the secretariat and the field offices is maintained and it is extended to all pay scales beyond that of the Assistants upto the level of under secretary. Corollary of this would be that pay structure evolved by the VII CPC would apply for various cadres of both of the secretariat as also the field offices.
Need for a Effective Grievance Procedure
Demanded  the VII CPC to consider and devise ways and means whereby the Government is advised to adhere to the laid down processes and to implement the objectives for which JCM Scheme was operationalised in particular
  1. All Group C and Group B Central Government employees should be brought; under coverage of JCM.
  2. These should be spot settlement in the councils of JCM important issues relating to wages etc should not be evaded / rejected precipitating a situation of confrontation
  3. The schedule of 3 meetings in a year is fully observed.
  4. Departmental councils should be revived in all Departments without fail.
  5. Arbitration Awards may be implemented and in no case kept pending for more than six months time.  Before referring any award for rejection by the parliament, it should be discussed with the staff side with a view to reach some modified form of agreement
  6. System of refering the matters on which immediate agreement was not possible to sub committees for separate discussion and report should be revived.
Equal Pay for Equal Work
Demanded the VII CPC to devise a mechanism under which the wages determining Authorities do coordinate and ensure that the principle of equal pay for equal work is kept in view and ensured.
Anomalies relating to Sixth CPC wage structure
It is requested the VII CPC to consider the matter regardidng Anomalies relating to sixth CPC and ask Government through an Interim Report to refer all the unresolved anomalies for Arbitration by appointing an Arbitrator to consider them and give awards in all case within a period of six months.
Scrap New Pension Scheme
The VII CPC is requested to review the NPS and recommend scrapping of NPS and the PFRDA Act.
Career progression: Grant five promotions in the service career.
The VII CPC should recommend that the cadre reviews are undertaken wherever not done so far to ensure five hierarchical promotions to all employees in their career on the pattern obtaining for Group A Officers.
It is suggested that the annual budget drawn up for each department must have sufficient allotted specifically for training purposes.  We request that the VII-CPC may kindly make recommendations on the need for in-service training and setting up training programmes by all Departments.
Leave entitlement, holidays and working hours. We request the Commission to recommend the following suggestions to the Government.
Presently the holidays are deferred for each year by the DOPT.  However, they permit the high power welfare committee of each State to finalise, taking into account the local conditions, three among the listed holidays.  We suggest that this may be recommended to be increased to six.  This apart, we may bring to the notice of the commission that only Government of India has refused to recognise the importance of May Day.  May Day is not a holiday for the Central Govt. employees.  We request the commission to recommend for the declaration of May days as a holiday.
Leave Entitlement:
The Govt. reduced the Casual leave from 12 to 8.  The number of days as 12 was conceived to be a day per month.  Taking into account the various contingencies one has to face, the increasing social obligations, we request that the number of Casual leave may be increased to 12 per year.
Special Disability leave:
The Special disability leave is sanctioned for treatment in the case of an employee who gets injured in an accident. The Govt. has imposed a ceiling on this leave of maximum of 24 months.  During the leave period he will be entitled for full salary for 120 days and rest at half pay rate.  Our suggestion in the matter is that such leave must not have any restriction on the number of days bit left to the Doctor treating the employee.
Earned leave:
the ceiling limit of 300 days can be reasonably raised to 450.  The Govt. employee may be permitted to encash part of such accumulated leave say up to 50% to meet certain financial exigencies if he has put in 20 years of service or more. 
On a humanitarian consideration, we made a novel suggestion of gifting leave to a needy employees.  Due to prolonged illness or hospitalisation requiring prolonged treatment an employee will be unable to attend office and might have exhausted all entitled leave at his credit.  We suggest that in such extreme circumstances, either his spouse or is colleagues may get certain number of days leave at his credit to the suffering employee.  This will help the suffering employees to take over the financial difficulties which he is compelled to be in leave on medical grounds.
Half Pay Leave:
Presently the half pay leave on credit is not allowed to be encashed.  This has to be permitted.
Maternity and Paternity Leave:
The entitlement may be increased to 240 days in the case of maternity leave and 30 days for paternity leave.
Child Care Leave:
There is presently a restriction of the number of times the child care leave can be availed in a year i.e., 3 occasions. This being unnecessary may be removed.
Spl. Casual Leave:
Demanded increase in the entitlement of Spl Casual Leave for Union/Association activists and  Sports persons to 40 days.
Group Insurance
The staff side decided to demand increase in both contribution and premium under the CGEGIES as under.
Group Rate of Subscription Insurance cover
Executive 1500 1500000
Non executive (other than MTS) 750 750000
