Comrade Radhakrishna President COC Karnataka welcomed the members he informed the need for 2nd September strike as the Government is intending to amend the labour laws without consulting the trade unions, which will be against the interest of the workers and employees. He also informed that minimum wage of Rs 26,000/- as demanded by the staff side JCM with effect from 1/1/2014 is being rejected by the 7th CPC. The 7th CPC date of effect shall be from 1/1/2016 there by denial of right wages. This injustice to Central Government Employees should be fought. He also informed that major central government departments such as Railways, Defence and Postal are being made as corporate sector.
Com Prasad General Secretary welcomed the members and informed the need for the 2ndSeptember 2015 strike and he said that the right to strike is being denied to the workers , which will result in government not accepting the demands of the workers and employees. He also said as per the calculations made in respect of minimum wage considering even the government rates it works out Rs 26,000/- hence the fitment formula works out to 3.72. This minimum wage and rightful fitment formula is being denied. Hence we should join the National strike on 2nd September.
Com Ravindran Pillai all India leader of the All India Defence Employees Federation informed that the defence civilian employees will also participate in the National strike on 2nd September.
