Central Government Employees Prepare for All India Agitation!

Lakhs of employees working in different departments and undertakings of the Central Government are stepping up preparations for a joint All India agitation.

As already reported in an earlier issue of Mazdoor Ekta Lehar, representatives of railwaymen, defence workers and other central government employees came together in the first week of July in New Delhi to chart a course of action in support of their demands.

Representatives of AIRF, AIDEF (All India Defence Employees Federation) and CCGE&W (Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers) attended the meeting. A common charter of demands was drawn up. These included a) setting up the 7th pay Commission b) Scrapping the New Contributory Pension Scheme c) Regularising the Gramin Dak Sevaks (GDS) of Postal Department as well as daily rated and contract workers in other Central Government undertakings d) Settle all the 6th Pay Commission Anomalies.

In addition to these common demands each Federation would attach the set of demands specific to it. A National Convention would be called to chart the next course of action.

 That meeting took place against the back drop of the decision by AIRF (All India Railway Mens Federation) to go on an indefinite strike in October 2013 is support of their demands. The National Federation of Indian Railway Men (NFIR) has also independently given a separate call for an indefinite strike. Between them, the AIRF and the NFIR constitute the two Unions that have been designated as “recognized unions” by the railway authorities.

In the conditions of the deep crisis of the Indian economy, the ruling class is systematically shifting the burden of the crisis onto the backs of the working class and people, through price rise of essential commodities, inflation, retrenchment and layoffs of workers, as well as resorting increasingly to contractualisation of jobs and hiring of contract labour. Workers all over the country and in all sectors of the economy are resisting these attacks. The decision of Central Government employees to launch an All India agitation is part of this struggle. Mazdoor Ekta Lehar fully supports the railway workers, defence sector workers, postal workers and other government employees in their struggle.

There is growing realisation among workers, peasants and other self-employed people that the program of liberalisation and privatisation only serves to enrich an exploiting minority at their expense. Mass resistance is growing to this anti-worker, anti-peasant and anti-national program.
