CENTRAL TRADE UNIONS CALL FOR COUNTRYWIDE INDEFINITE STRIKE


AGAINST ANTI PEOPLE ANTI LABOUR POLICIES OF NDA GOVERNMENT

WORKERS TO STORM DELHI ON 9,10&11 NOVEMBER 2017

 

The National Convention of Workers held today, 8th August 2017 decided to organise a ‘three day dharna’ on 9th, 10th and 11thNovember 2017 before Parliament mobilizing lakhs of workers followed by indefinite General Strike against the anti people anti labour policies of the NDA Government.

The convention was organised by the joint platform of all the central trade unions- INTUC, AITUC, HMS, CITU, AIUTUC, TUCC, SEWA, AICCTU, UTUC and LPF and national Federations of State and Central Government employees, Banks, Insurance, Defence, PSUs, Railways, Telecom, Electricity, Coal, Steel, Energy, Petroleum, Road transport, Air transport, Water transport, Port and Dock, Metal and Mining, IT, Scheme Workers, Pharmaceuticals, Construction, Plantation etc.
The Convention noted with utter dismay that the Government has been continuing to arrogantly ignore the 12 point Charter of Demands on minimum wage, social security, workers’ status and pay and facilities for the scheme workers, against privatization and mass scale contractorisation etc. being jointly pursued by the entire trade union movement of the country, through numerous nationwide joint strike actions participated by crores of workers. Instead, the ruling regime at the centre has been increasing onslaught on the rights and livelihood of the working people of the country.
Unemployment situation is getting aggravated with employment generation practically turned negative even in the most labour intensive sectors. The Government has been aggressively pushing through its programme of pro-employer and utterly anti-worker labour law reforms. The latest onslaught is the move to evolve a ’Social Security Code’ by dismantling and demolishing the existing statutory Social Security infrastructure.

Privatization of all strategic PSUs, including Defence Production, Public Sector Banks and Insurance and also Railways, public road transport, oil, power etc through disinvestment, strategic sale, outsourcing in favour of private sector, promoting 100 per cent FDI in many vital and strategic sectors are increasing day by day. Public sector Banks are under attack through various legislative and executive measures. The central government intends to get the new Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill 2017 hastily passed in the current session of parliament which will allow wholesale privatisation of road transport.

The National Convention of Workers extended full solidarity to the fighting farmers in various states as well as under the Joint National Forums of Peasants’ Organizations. The National Conventionstrongly denunciated the communal and divisive machinations on the society being carried on with the active patronage of the Government machinery under the present polity.
The situation before the nation is the deepening all round attack on the rights and livelihood of the working class and the toiling people in general by the private corporate friendly Government of the day.

The Convention decided

1. To work for achieving and accelerating united struggles in all the sectors of the economy on respective demands, which has already begun

2. To Organize Block/District/Industrial Centres/State level massive campaign, mobilisation and convention in preparation to central mobilization to be followed

3. Massive three days dharna at National Capital on 9th,10th and 11th Nov. to be attended by lakhs of workers from all over the country.

4. The National Convention calls upon the working people to prepare for indefinite countrywide strike action against the anti people, anti national activities of the Govt.
The convention was presided by Ashok Singh(INTUC),Ramendra Kumar (AITUC) S N Pathak(HMS), Dr. K Hemalata (CITU), Satyavan Singh(AIUTUC),Lata (SEWA),Uday Bhat (AICCTU),Satrujit Singh(UTUC), V Subbaraman(LPF) and addressed by G Sanjeeva Reddy (INTUC), Amarjeet Kaur(AITUC), Harbhajan Singh Siddu(HMS), Tapan Sen(CITU), Shankar Saha( AIUTUC), Manali(SEWA), Rajeev Dimri(AICCTU), Ashok Ghosh( UTUC) and M Shanmugam ( LPF
