The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA),
an umbrella organisation comprising various
Central Government employees’ unions,
has temporarily postponed the indefinite
strike scheduled from July 11 after Prime
Minister Narendra Modi formed a committee
of Ministers to negotiate with union leaders on their demands.

NJCA convener (South Zone) N. Kanniah said
even as the Cabinet approved the 7th Pay
Commission, representatives of various unions,
including the All India Railwaymen Federation,
decided to go ahead with the proposed strike
demanding a minimum pay of Rs. 26,000.

The claim that the government was giving a
14.28 per cent hike in pay was false since
the calculations revealed an increase of only
11.31 per cent, which would further decline
to 4.51 per cent after deductions towards
provident fund and pension scheme contributions.

Mr. Kanniah, who is also the general
secretary of Southern Railway Mazdoor
Union, said the unions were opposed to
privatisation and foreign direct investment
in Defence, Railway etc.

“Since the Prime Minister has intervened and
initiated the process of negotiation,
we have decided to temporarily postpone
the indefinite strike. The NJCA will make
sure that the genuine demands of the employees
are met with,” he said. ---THE HINDU,CHENNAI

THE NJCA SHOULD NOT HAVE RETREATED FROM THE PROPOSED INDEFINITE STRIKE. THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO DELAY THE IMPLEMENTATION OF 7TH CPC RECOMMENDATIONS. IT HAS AGREED FOR INCREASE OF 14.22% ON BASIC AND D.A. BUT NOT ON HRA AND T.A.

THE INTENTION OF THE GOVERNMENT APPEAR TO REDUCE HRA PERCENTAGE FROM 24%, 16% AND 8% TO STILL LOWER LEVEL AND AT THE SAME TIME SAVE HRA ARREARS AS 7TH CPC RECOMMENDATIONS ON HRA FETCHES SUBSTANTIAL HIKE FROM THE EXISTING HRA AMOUNT(MORE THAN 100% INCREASE FROM THE PRESENT AMOUNT OF HRA).

IF THE INTENTION OF THE GOVERNMENT IS GOOD, IT SHOULD HAVE IMPLEMENTED THE 7TH CPC RECOMMENDATIONS IN TOTO SO THAT ATLEAST THE EMPLOYEES WOULD HAVE GOT 23.55 PERCENT INCREASE INCLUDING HRA AND T.A. FROM THE JULY SALARY AND THEN FORMED A COMMITTEE TO LOOK INTO THE GRIEVANCES.

FURTHER THE EMPOWERED COMMITTEE OF SECRETARIES HAVE ALMOST TAKEN MORE THAN 6 MONTHS TO SUBMIT ITS REPORT AFTER CONSULTATION WITH THE STAKEHOLDERS. WHY THE ORIGINAL REPORT OF THE ECOS NOT MADE PUBLIC AS IN THE CASE OF 7TH CPC REPORT WHICH WAS INSTANTLY PUBLISHED, THE MOMENT IT WAS SUBMITTED BY THE CHAIRMAN OF THE 7TH CPC TO THE GOVERNMENT?

WHAT IS THE NEED FOR ONE MORE HIGH LEVEL COMMITTEE. ARE THE MEMBERS OF THE ECOS WHO WERE I.A.S. OFFICERS IN THE RANK OF SECRETARY ARE NOT IN HIGH LEVEL?. WHO IS ABOVE THE I.A.S. OFFICERS IN INDIA WHO ARE TO BE CONSIDERED AT HIGH LEVEL. IT IS THE SAME GROUP OF SECRETARIES WHO ARE GOING TO SIT ONCE AGAIN FOR MORE THAN 4 MONTHS, JUST TO BRAINWASH THE EMPLOYEES IN CONNIVANCE WITH THE GOVERNMENT AND KEEP ON DELAYING THE IMPLEMENTATION. WHAT IS THERE TO REVIEW FOR 4 MONTHS. EVERYTHING IS A KNOWN ISSUE. IT SHOULD NOT TAKE MORE THAN 4 DAYS TO GIVE THEIR RECOMMENDATION FOR INCREASING THE PAY AND ALLOWANCES AS DEMANDED BY THE EMPLOYEES FEDERATIONS.

AFTER 4 MONTHS WHEN THAT REPORT ALSO IS NOT SATISFACTORY TO THE EMPLOYEES, GOVERNMENT MAY FORM ONE MORE HIGH LEVEL COMMITTEE TO SUBMIT ITS REPORT IN ANOTHER 4 OR 6 MONTHS TIME AND THIS TACTICS SHALL GO ON.

THEREFORE THE NJCA AND ALL THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES FEDERATIONS SHOULD INTENSIFY ITS PROTEST TO MAKE THE GOVERNMENT AGREE TO THE DEMANDS IMMEDIATELY.
