Prepare for struggle on 7th CPC issues.

Comrades,
                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is no change in allowances expect HRA that too its rates are reduced by the 7th CPC and also many allowances have been withdrawn.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

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.

Prepare for strike we are sure the of getting better wage hike.






Comrades,
                 The flash strike against the recent PF Rules, 2016 of the Central Government (i.e., Centre’s new rule on Provident Fund withdrawal) by large section of Garment Factory Workers and other Industrial Workers of Karnataka State on 18th and 19th April 2016 received immense response and there was a massive protest which resulted in road blocks for hours together, thereby the entire traffic of Bengaluru City was paralyzed.  The traffic was also severely affected on Mysore, Tumkur and Hosur roads. 

             The COC Karnataka extended moral support and sympathy for this Labour Movement.  The February 10th notification was under attack from trade unions from the beginning.  The notification was published in the gazette on February 26 and created technical problems.

            The violence in Bengaluru prompted the Labour Ministry, Govt. of India to cancel the February 10 notification which put restrictions on 100% withdrawal from the PF account.

        Within few hours of protest in Bengaluru and other parts of Karnataka state , the Hon’ble Minsiter for Labour, Shri.Bandaru Dattatreya acted upon and withdrawn the notification issued on February 10th and informed that the old system will continue. This is a victory for the workers of the country.

           This clearly shows that the Government of India does not want to antagonize the workers.  If the Central Government employees also participate in trade union action against the retrograde recommendations of the VII CPC similar to the Garment Workers of Karnataka, we too can get similar results and hope for a better wage revision and a decent wage hike.

This Labour movement of the Garment Workers of Karnataka state is an eye-opener for all other working class in the entire country, Comrades if one state and one particular working class movement can bring changes to the policy of the Central Government, if the entire the entire country the Central Government employees agitate against the retrograde recommendations of the 7th CPC (where only 14 % wage hike was provided against the staff side demand of 80% wage hike and also reducing the number of allowances and reduction in HRA rates)  then the Central Government shall provide the decent wage hike by settling the issue of wage hike with the staff side NJCA like the PF issue being settled.

    Comrades it is high time to prepare for 11th July strike of Central Government employees under the banner of NJCA.  We shall get good results and Central Government shall grant better wage hike than the 7th CPC recommendations. Better we prepare for 11th July strike better wage hike we get.   

                                                                       Comradely yours

Pension Revision

50% of Last Pay Drawn as Minimum Pension to all 

Pre-2006 Pensioners with less than 33 years of 

service also!

A Great Victory to Pre-2006 Pensioners!

After a long legal battle the Government conceeds 
another point to Pre-2006 Pensioners!

            After a long battle the pre-2006 pensioners got another issue sorted out with the Government conceding grant of full pension to pre-2006 pensioners with less than 33 years  as recommended by 6th CPC! This comes after the Govt deciding to extend the judgment given out by Supreme Court in the case of Inasu from Kerala.

            Now all those pre-2006 pensioners who got only proportionate pension for want of 33 years qualifying service, will get the refixation from 1.1.2006 and get arrears also.
            The  order of Ministry of Pension & Pensioners Welfare is given below:

REVISION OF PENSION OF PRE-2006 PENSIONERS - DELINKING OF REVISED PENSION FROM QUALIFYING SERVICE OF 33 YEARS. (Click the link  below  to view)



Government to add 2.2 lakh central employees in two years

FOR DETAILS CLICK HERE 

The central government's actual staff on March 1, 2015 was 33.05 lakh, which increased to 34.93 lakh in 2016 and is estimated to grow to 35.23 lakh by March 1, 2017, according to the budget estimates for 2016-17.

7th CPC Pay Statement

Comrades,
                 There are various reports on 7th Central Pay commission on the media on fitment formula,  arrears being paid as bonds , these reports are totally wrong and unwanted , these confuse the Central Government Employees, if you read the below table it is quite clear that  a Group “C” employee shall get.   

The true picture, as per 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.



The Empowered Committee is   likely to rectify and change the fitment formula in that case , As per media reports  the committee may recommend a minimum wage of Rs 20000/- or Rs 21000/- against the demand of Rs 26,000/ of the staff side , the Central Government Employees (Group “B” & Group “C” ) and shall get a salary increase of just Rs 4000/ to Rs  16000/- only , that is also too meager considering the aspect of price rise and modern day expenditures, Secondly  arrears of six months if the 7th CPC is implemented shall be only Rs 8000/- per month on average per employee per month , for six months it will just at Rs 50000/- per employee only , this amount will not affect the Central Government finances.

So don’t believe any news paper reports, 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

Hence we should not bother too much on these reports, instead we should educate the members and prepare for struggle, so that we get at least get a minimum wage of Rs 24,000/- ( 50 % wage hike without  allowances)  , as allowances are not taken into pension  benefit.
