The National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers met on 30.09.2016 at New Delhi, reviewed the progress made in settlement of the charter of demands submitted by the JCM (NC) staff side to the Central Government, with particular reference to the assurance given by the Group of Ministers regarding constitution of a High Level Committee for increasing the minimum wage and fitment formula. The National Secretariat viewed with grave concern the totally negative and indifferent attitude of the NDA Government towards the genuine demands of the Central Government employees and expressed its strong protest against non-implementation of the assurance given by the Cabinet Ministers to the NJCA till this date. As already resolved by the 25th National Conference of the Confederation held at Chennai from 16th to 18th August 2016, the National Secretariat decided to organize independent campaign and agitational programmes culminating in strike action. The National Secretariat, at the same time, resolved to maintain unity under the banner of NJCA intact and also resolved that confederation while conducting its own independent campaign and agitational programmes, shall fully implement all the programmes of NJCA also at all levels.
Accordingly, the National Secretariat decided to organize the above mentioned phased programme of action during the months of October, November and December 2016. The National Secretariat further deiced that before finalizing the date of the strike action, the Confederation leadership shall contact all likeminded organisations and effort should be made to bring maximum unity of Central Government employees for the proposed strike action.
