Prepare for struggle on 7th CPC issues.

                The Staff side had demand of minimum wage of Rs 26000/- & fitment formula of 3.71. Against this the 7th CPC had recommended minimum wage of Rs 18000/- & fitment formula of 2.57. The 7th CPC recommendations has provided only at 14% wage hike at Group “C” level it is only ranging from Rs 2240/- to  Rs  3500/- increase per month, and at Group “B” level ranging from Rs 4000/- to   Rs 6500/- increase per month. This increase is lowest by any pay commission, hence vast changes are required as the prices of essential commodities have gone up and also the inflation rate has gone up.   

There are various reports on 7th Central Pay commission on the media reports on minimum wage of Rs 21000/- & fitment formula of 3.00, (which is at 34% wage hike against the 14% wage hike recommended by the 7th CPC).  These reports are totally wrong and not true, these reports divert the Central Government Employees from the struggle path. Now it’s clear from the meeting of the staff side leaders with the Cabinet Secretary that there will likely hood of the slight increase in minimum wage, but not be any  changes in the fitment formula. This is against the Staff side demand of minimum wage of Rs 26000/- & fitment formula of 3.71.

Secondly there is no change in allowances expect HRA that too its rates are reduced by the 7th CPC and also many allowances have been withdrawn. This is saving for the Government
Comrades it is the time to struggle, we should educate the members and prepare for struggle, so that we should get at least 50 % wage hike without allowances, as allowances are not taken into pension benefit.

Only struggle will get us benefit. Please don’t believe on rumours. Now it is now or never.  Serve strike notice on 9th June 2016. 

Comradely yours
General Secretary

Central Govt Employees stir over ‘pay anomalies’ from June 9th

Comrade KKN Kutty, National President of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, today said the employees of the Central government would stage a demonstration from June 9 onwards in case the “shortcomings in the seventh pay commission recommendations” were not rectified.
Comrade Kutty, while talking to media persons on the sidelines of the All India Trade Union Education Camp 2016 in Dehradun, said the seventh pay commission had recommended Rs 18,000 per month as minimum wage whereas it should be Rs 26,000 per month. “Thirty five to 40 per cent positions are vacant in the Central government departments which must be filled at the earliest,” he said while criticising the government for its outsourcing policy.

“Several issues are there which should be resolved. We have asked the Centre to hold talks with us before June 9, otherwise we will be forced to launch an agitation,” he said. He said it was wrong to link government employees with corruption. “It is in society and there should be a mechanism to check it,” he asserted.
Earlier, while addressing the All India Trade Union Education Camp 2016, Kutty called upon the Central government employees to work unitedly towards ensuring justice for them.
Another speaker, Venkatesh Ramakrishnan, said the liberalisation policies followed by the rise of communalism in the country had adversely affected the working class. He said the Central government employees were facing challenging times as they were being neglected.
