The Joint platform of Central Trade Unions (CTUs) of the Country along with Independent National Federations of employees of different industries and services including Confederation of Central Govt. Employees and Workers, have decided to organize All India General Strike on 2nd September 2016, against the anti-people, anti-workers policies and authoritarian attitude of the NDA Government. Intensive campaign and preparation to make the general strike a resounding historical success is going on in full swing throughout the country. The attitude of the NDA Government is profoundly negative and hugely challenging to the working class including Central Govt. employees. The issues in the Charter of demands submitted by the Trade Unions to the Govt. relate to basic interest of the country’s economy and also issues concerning the livelihood of the working people of both organized and unorganized sectors.

Govt. has not taken any meaningful step to curb price rise of essential commodities and to generate employment except making tall baseless claims. Govt. is mysteriously silent on the question of retrieving the black money stashed abroad and recovering lakhs of crores of rupees of bad debts of public sector banks. Whole range of social security measures are under severe attacks including the pension of post – 2004 entrants in Central Govt. Services. Govt. has launched atrocious attack of drastic cut in interest on small savings deposits. Totally ignoring the united opposition of the working class, the Govt. has been moving fast to demolish existing labour laws thereby empowering the employers with unfettered rights to “hire and fire” and stripping the workers and trade union of all their rights and protection provided in laws. Alongwith the peasantry and agri- labourers are also under severe attack. Attack on public sector has been pushed to unprecedented height with Govt. announcing mega strategic sale and also allowing unlimited FDI in strategic sectors like Railways, Defence and financial Sector as complimentary to the move of privatization and Public Private partnership etc. The anti-worker and authoritarian attitude of the Government is also nakedely reflected in their refusal to implement the consensus recommendations of 43rd, 44th and 45th Indian Labour Conference for formulations of minimum wages, equal wage and benefits of regular workers to the Contract workers.

The neo-liberal economic policies pursued by the Govt. has landed the entire national economy in distress and decline affecting the working people the most.

Central Govt. Employees worst affected:

The policy offensives of the Govt. like downsizing, outsourcing, contractorisation, corporatization and privatization has affected the Central Govt. departments and employees in a worst manner. Ban on creation of new posts and non-filling up of about six lakhs vacant posts had increased the work load of the existing employees and adversely affected the efficiency of the services. The New Pension Scheme (NPS) implemented with affect from 01.01.2004, is nothing but a “No Pension Scheme”, as it is fully dependent on the vagaries of share market forces. The Govt. is not ready to grant civil servant status to Gramin Dak Sevaks and to regularize the services of causal, contingent and contract workers. The 5% ceiling on compassionate appointment is not yet removed. The bonus ceiling enhancement from Rs.3500/- to Rs. 7000/- is not made applicable to Central Govt. Employees. Govt. is not ready to modify the 7th CPC recommendations, which is worst ever made by any pay commissions. The assurance given to the staff side regarding enhancement minimum pay and fitment formula is yet to be implemented. All other retrograde recommendations like reduction in the percentage of HRA, abolition of 52 allowances etc. are yet to be modified. Overall the attitude of the Modi Govt. is totally negative towards the Central Govt. employees and pensioners.

The National Secretariat is of the firm opinion that unless the policy of the Govt. is changed, more attacks are likely to come on the Central Govt. employees and working class. To change the policy the united struggle of entire working class is required. It is in this background the Confederation of Central Govt. employees and workers has decided to join the General Strike along with other sections of the working class of our country.

The Confederation National Secretariat calls upon the entirety of Central Govt. employees to make intensive campaign and preparation for making the 2nd September 2016 strike a grand success. Along with the 12 Point charter of demands of the working class, the Confederation has decided to submit the demands pertaining to the Central Govt. employees also as Part-B of the Charter of demands to the Govt. The Chater of demands (Part A and B) is furnished below:

  1. Nothing has mentioned about MACP on promotional hierarchy.

  2. Nothing has mentioned about Up-gradation of pay of LDC-UDC.

  3. What about the latest position of LDC-UDC case?

  4. Thank you very much for not including the point of LDC/UDC and Up-gradation of pay of LDC/UDC. God bless you a lot.

  5. Dear please see the charter demand dated 10.12.2015 where the LDC upgradation has been included along with many other point. Please see part-B of strike demand. It will be clarified.

    1. Agreed, but the point of LDC/UDC should specifically raise in demand of charter equally as point of Gramin Dak Sevaks as Civil Servants.

    2. LDC issue not included in the strike agenda. we have lost the faith on all the NGOs and union. LDC / UDC are suffering a lot since sixth pay commission.

      sorry to say friends

  6. DEAR sir

    Why association is very silent on the macp anomily which is carrear regression scheme instead of Carrear progression. Pls fight for restore of ACP or MACP promotional hyrarchy.

  7. Kindly reproduce CPC recommendations, submitted to Cabinet Secretary on 10th December 2015.

  8. Sir, macp on promotional hieachy nahi dilwa sakte to old acp hi dilwado. bahut se log retire ho gai kuchh jane wale he

  9. pl give suitable instrctions that acp...gp 4200 after 24 yrs sirvice. but gp 2800 has been granted by macp why.


  11. nothing about MACP on promotional hirerchy

  12. nothing about MACP on promotional hirerchy

  13. I know no one cares about LDCs. If everyone knows that this is biggest anomaly and injustice then why it is not brought out in such forums likes strikes, JCM and charter of demands. If the so called leaders are not interested because they themselves are not LDCs then they must explicitly say so. There's no point in giving false hope of court case and all that. When you can't openly put forth the point before unions and JCM and government what is the use.

  14. LDC anomaly is not cleared even in 7th pay commission. Even though no one spoke a single word on behalf of LDCs. Great leaders we have got. Poor LDCs. Its like apna kaam banta bhaad me jaye janta.

  15. What is the next date of hearing of the LDC grade pay case? Atleast have the courtesy to give update to people who have hope in you.

  16. This is the biggest anomaly of the 6th pay commission yet no one is worried about it. If this had been in industrial or officer cadre there would have been huge demonstrations held. But poor LDCs cannot go on strike. Further the associations to which they belong to, the office bearers are of higher designation therefore they also do not give heed to grievances. If all this was not enough some are playing with their emotions by giving false hope. No one wants to represents the case vehemently. Altogether the state of LDCs in central government is pathetic.

  17. What will be benefit of MACP from G.P 1900 to 2000. One increement, which already admissions one in every year. What about financial up gadiation. Not a single rupee. This is serious anomaly and needs to be rectified

  18. Association n leaders sab bakwas. Finally mutual compromise aur hum sab ulu bas jhanda halane kalea a leaders humko dhunte hain nothing else.

  19. Jcm And govt both r b..d. Because they couldn't help poor LDC.

    1. I think that we should leave this LDC/UDC issue now. We are waiting since Sept. 2008 when the sixth pay commission was implemented. After eight years, nothing has been settled for LDC / UDC cadre of subordinate offices recently the nomenclature has been changed for CSCS and CSS cadre but not for subordinate offices and autonomous organizations. This is huge discrimination between central government employees as they are working in same pattern accordingly this change of nomenclature should be implemented for all LDC / UDC / Assistant of Central Government and not only for CSCS & CSS. Please circulate this message to all friends.

  22. Dopt is considering the upgradation of Central Secretariat only. Dopt should monitor also the Departmental cadre review also. Alas to say that Dopt is issuing order and all other Department's not strictly following the orders. So week the HR Department of Govt of India. LDC issue is a genuine issue and even in the era of computer oriented e office system, all actual allocated of LDC become overlapped and obsolete. Even in all Pay and accounts office, LDCs are compelled to execute of job of accountants (GP 2800/-). Statistically if we see the scenario, then will see most of the subordinate offices have LDCs, very very few supervisory staffs like UDCs and Assistants rare. How can we show our faith on our union leaders if they failed to represent the most genuine issue to the Govt. So much disappointed we are. No other forum, no other option. Just all LDCs are posted all India basis and living with so much agony. Even selection grade staffs are getting comparatively much more better salaries and work profiles are specific involving very few laws and regulations. On the other hand, LDCs are handling all administrative, accounts and general laws. Their work loads are huge to say in today scenario. Even Dopt is abolishing the LDC posts and newly nomenclatured. But no action taken for subordinate staffs inspite of repeated view of administrative reformation commitions that in today scenario, supply line has as much importance as execution line. LDCs are working on PFMS portal as checker. Dopt has any answer regarding this. Shame shame. India will not progress whether there is no justice. can anybody say what is the status of LDC issue in Dopt room and Jabalpur CAT. Mr. Pillai still handing the poster that date is 19.07.2016. Alas alas.
