Dear Coms,

Sub: Support to “General Strike” proposed by the Central Trade Unions

As you are aware that the 88th Annual Conference of All India Raliwaymen’s Federation, met at Vishakhapatnam from 18th to 20th December, 2012, had decided to reiterate its all out support to the programme drawn in the National Convention of all the Central Trade Unions, held on 4th September, 2012 at Talkalora Stadium, New DeIhi (Resolution No.5). It has, therefore, been decided by the All India Railwaymen’s Federation to extend its fullest support to the countrywide two days “General Strike” proposed by the Central Trade Unions on 20th and 21st
February, 2013 on the following demands:

1. No contractorisation of works of permanent/perennial nature of wages and benefits to the contract workers at the same rate as available to the regular workers of the industry/establishment.

2. Amendment of Minimum Wages Act to ensure universal coverage irrespective of the schedules and fixation of statutory minimum wage at not less than Rs. 10,000 linked with Cost Price Index.

3. Remove all ceilings on payment and eligibility of Bonus, Provident Fund: Increase the quantum of gratuity.

4. Assured pension for all.

5. Compulsory registration of the Trade Unions within a period of 45 days and mediate ratification of the ILO Conventions Nos.87 and 98.

You are, therefore, advised to conduct gate meetings, demonstrations, dharnas, protest rallies etc, at all the important places to ensure our solidarity to CTUs’ call of two days’ “General Strike”.

In this connection, we are also enclosing herewith a copy of the appeal made by all the Central Trade Unions.

End: As above

APPEAL TO ALL THE WORKERS & UNIONS TO MAKE 20-21 FEBRUARY GENERAL STRIKE A GRAND SUCCESS

 

All the 11 Central Unions along with independent Employees / workers Federations are jointly appealing to all workers in the country to gear up in large number at the grass root level to prepare and to go on strike on 20-21st Feb.2013. Since the Government has become more aggressive and has not shown any interest to consider our demands, we are compelled to go for two days All India General Strike. It is only through this action the Govt. could be made to come out from its adamant attitude. To pressurize the Govt. to shed the anti labour attitude, it is very necessary and important to participate in the strike on 20-21 Feb. 2012.
Once again, we all the 11 Central Trade Unions appeal to all the working people of our nation to make the strike a grand success.

Dear Friends,
Taking into consideration of the Govt’s aggressive attitude towards working people, all the Central Trade Unions and other independent unions and Federations have unanimously decided to go on 2 days strike on 20-21 Feb. 2013. The sky rise inflation, disinvestment of the profit making public sector undertakings including financial sector and non-implementation of labour laws, etc. has become the order of the day. To pressurize the Govt. to shed the anti labour attitude, it becomes necessary to observe the All India Strike on 20-21 Feb. 2013. The National Convention of the CTUs on 4th Sept. 2012 has taken the decision to go for two days strike. Considering the importance of the issues being faced by the working class, it is necessary that all employees and workers including in the banking and insurance sector to participate in the strike.
We appeal to the employees and officers in the financial sector to make the strike a grand success by extending full support and keeping the entire sector closed on 20-21st Feb. 2013.
