NOTICE FOR NATIONAL EXECUTIVE MEETING
Conf/No: 3/2012 Dated: 12th March, 2012
National Executive Committee meeting of the Confederation on 28th April, 2012 at Kolkata:
The last National Council meeting of the Confederation which was held at Kochi, Kerala had authorised the National Sectt. to finalise the dates for the March to Parliament programme and strike action in pursuance of the 14 point charter of demands. The National Sectt, however, noted that the last National Council meeting unfortunately did not have the presence of many comrades, ofcourse for compelling reasons, and the decision to embark upon strike action ought to have been with the consent and approval of the affiliates. It was, therefore, opined that we should convene a National Executive Committee meeting which is composed of the National Sectt. members, Secretaries of all the State Committees and the Chief Executives of all affiliates with more than 3000 members.

The Finance Ministry has given its nod for the Labour and Employment Ministry to fix the rate of interest payable to Employees Provident Fund subscrib
Employees' Provident Fund rate lowered to 8.25% for 2011-12
The decision was taken in keeping with the finances of the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation, which manages the PF fund, a senior official said.
“They are paying from the interest they get from what they invested two or three years ago in financial institutions. So what is reflected now to the PF subscribers relates to the investment made earlier and the rate of interest that prevailed then in the market.”
The Board of Trustees of the EPFO, which includes representatives of labour unions too, approved the proposal to leave the financial decision on the interest rate to the Labour and Finance Ministries, the official said.
The Board, at its meeting on December 23 last, empowered the Labour Ministry to take the decision in view of the plea for reducing the interest this year (2011-12) to 8.25 per cent.
In 2010-11, the rate was fixed at 9.5 per cent, thanks to availability of a surplus fund of Rs. 1,731 crore.
Later, the Labour Ministry prepared a note mentioning that the rate for 2011-12 could be fixed at 8.25 per cent, to benefit about five crore PF subscribers. This is to ensure that the rate matched the interest rate being offered to Public Provident Fund scheme customers in scheduled banks.

POSTAL WORKERS ON THE ROAD - EGYPT - NEWS
Postal workers in the governorates of Gharbiya, Qena, Ismailiya, Northern Sinai, Meniya, Sharqiya, Beni-Suwaif, El-Fayoum, Luxor and Aswan - which cover geographic districts from one end of the country to the other - have shut down 50% of Egypt's post offices since yesterday. Colleagues in the governorates of Alexandria and Kafr El-Sheikh are set to join the action tomorrow.
Workers are demanding that the government purge the publicly owned postal services of hundreds of that they consider corrupt managers as well as tens of highly paid consultants.
The workers are also demanding a 7% annual pay increase to keep up with inflation and a 200% bonus for meeting annual production goals.
The postal workers strike by was called last Friday by the newly formed Independent Union of Postal Workers.
Union delegates elected a strike committee composed of six rank-and-file representatives who cover various geographic districts in order to negotiate a settlement with government.
In the weeks after the fall of former dictator Mubarak, thousands of postal workers organized several strikes and protests to demand that the new government replace officials tied to the old regime. Workers also began a campaign to build new local and national unions to replace pro-Mubarak formations that they deemed pro-management.
The Egyptian government uses post offices not only to deliver regular mail services but also to distribute pension checks to millions of retirees.

A Brief History of International Women's Day
On 8 March 1857, women working in clothing and textile factories (called 'garment workers') in New York City, in the United States, staged a protest. They were fighting against inhumane working conditions and low wages. The police attacked the protestors and dispersed them. Two years later, again in March, these women formed their first labour union to try and protect themselves and gain some basic rights in the workplace.
On 8 March 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter work hours, better pay, voting rights and an end to child labour. They adopted the slogan "Bread and Roses", with bread symbolizing economic security and roses a better quality of life. In May, the Socialist Party of America designated the last Sunday in February for the observance of National Women's Day.
Following the declaration of the Socialist Party of America, the first ever National Woman's Day was celebrated in the United States on 28 February 1909. Women continued to celebrate it on the last Sunday of that month through 1913.
An international conference, held by socialist organizations from around the world, met in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1910. The conference of the Socialist International proposed a Women's Day which was designed to be international in character. The proposal initially came from Clara Zetkin, a German socialist, who suggested an International Day to mark the strike of garment workers in the United States. The proposal was greeted with unanimous approval by the conference of over 100 women from 17 countries, including the first three women elected to the parliament of Finland. The Day was established to honour the movement for women's rights, including the right to vote (known as 'suffrage'). At that time no fixed date was selected for the observance.
The declaration of the Socialist International had an impact. The following year, 1911, International Women's Day was marked for the first time in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. The date was March 19 and over a million men and women took to the streets in a series of rallies. In addition to the right to vote and to hold public office, they demanded the right to work and an end to discrimination on the job.
Less than a week later, on 25 March, the tragic Triangle Fire in New York City took place. Over 140 workers, mostly young Italian and Jewish immigrant girls working at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company, lost their lives because of the lack of safety measures. The Women's Trade Union League and the International Ladies' Garment Workers Union led many of the protests against this avoidable tragedy, including the silent funeral march which brought together a crowd of over 100,000 people. The Triangle Fire had a significant impact on labour legislation and the horrible working conditions leading up to the disaster were invoked during subsequent observances of International Women's Day.
As part of the peace movement brewing on the eve of World War I, Russian women observed their first International Women's Day on the last Sunday in February 1913. Elsewhere in Europe, on or around 8 March of the following year, women held rallies either to protest the war or to express solidarity with their sisters.
With 2 million Russian soldiers dead in the war, Russian women again chose the last Sunday in February 1917 to strike for "bread and peace". Political leaders opposed the timing of the strike, but the women went on anyway.
The rest is history: Four days later the Czar of Russia was forced to abdicate and the provisional Government granted women the right to vote. That historic Sunday fell on 23 February on the Julian calendar then in use in Russia, but coincided with 8 March on the Gregorian calendar used by people elsewhere.
Since those early years, International Women's Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike.
In December 1977 the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace. Four global United Nations women's conferences have helped make the demand for women's rights and participation in the political and economic process a growing reality.
In 1975 the UN drew global attention to women's concerns by calling for an International Women's year and convening the first conference on women in Mexico City. Another convention was held in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1980.
In 1985, the UN convened a third conference on women in Nairobi, Kenya, to look at what had been achieved at the end of the decade.
In 1995, Beijing hosted the Fourth World Conference on Women. Representatives from 189 different countries agreed that inequalities between women and men has serious consequences for the well-being of all people. The conference declared a set of goals for progress of women in various areas including politics, health, and education. The final document issued by the conference (called the "Platform for Action") had this to say: "The advancement of women and the achievement of equality between women and men are a matter of human rights and a condition for social justice and should not be seen in isolation as a women's issue."
Five years later, in a 23rd special session of the United Nations General Assembly, "Women 2000: Gender Equality, Development and Peace for the 21st Century" reviewed the progress the world has made towards achieving the goals set out by the Beijing conference. This conference has come to be known as the "Beijing +5" conference. Delegates found both progress and perservering obstacles. The delegates made further agreements to continue carrying out the initiatives of the 1995 women's conference
