3. 2018 September 19th - 50th Year of 1968 September 19th Strike - Organise Martyrs Day in a befitting manner:
2018 September 19th is the 50th Anniversary day of historic 1968 September 19th strike of the Central Govt. Employees. The main demand raised was “Need Based Minimum Wage” approved by the 1957 Fifteenth Indian Labour Conference which was formulated based on Dr. Wallace Aykroid’s Formula. The Central Government banned the strike declaring it illegal. Essential Service Maintenance Ordinance was promulgated. Militry, Para-military and Police forces were deployed to crush the strike. Firing took place at many places. 17 (Seventeen) comrades were brutally killed. About 40000 suspended and terminated from service. Many leaders and cadres arrested and jailed. Thousands chargesheeted and transferred. Inspite of all these repressive measures, the strike was cent percent success all over the country. The struggle to vacate victimisations continued for years. We are commemorating the 50th year of the historic strike, when the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers are in the midst of mobilisation and campaign to make the 2018 Noember 15th strike a grand success. Let us draw inspiration from the sacrifice of those who were victimised in the 1968 strike, especially from the great martyrdom of those comrades who laid down their lives for the working class of our country and for the posterity.
Confederation National Secretariat calls upon all the affiliated organisastions and C-O-Cs to organise the 2018 September 19th Matrys day at all centres, by organising seminars, General Body meetings,Flag hoisting, homage to matrys, honouring of 1968 strike victimised employees and leaders and other programmes, if possible jointly with other fraternal organisastion. The history and significance of 1968 September 19th strike should reach each and every member of our affiliated organisations. The importance of the fight against the anti-labour neo-liberal policies pursued by the Central Government and the need to make 2018 November 15th strike a grand success may also be explained and emphasised.
