EDITORIAL POSTAL CRUSADER: AUGUST-2015

EDITORIAL POSTAL CRUSADER: AUGUST-2015

DEFEAT ANTI PEOPLE, ANTI WORKING CLASS POLICIES OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMEN.

MAKE THE ONE DAY STRIKE ON 2ND SEPTEMBER-2015 A HISTORIC SUCCESS.
*****************
          During the one year period of BJP Government, it may be clearly felt that this Government has betrayed and cheated the workers and worked against them curtailing  their trade union rights, wages and social security’s which were earned through sustained struggles and sacrifices by them. Every action of Government is pro capitalists, pro employers. Large scale amendments in labour laws are aimed to benefit industrialists/employers to give them free hand to retrench/lay off workers, declare closure/shutdown of establishment and resort to mass scale contractorization.

            The main object of these changes is to do away with whatever minimal protection the workers are having under present labour laws despite their large scale violations in connivance with the state Governments. The present Central  Government  does not  want to implement the consensus recommendations of 43rd, 44th and 45thIndian Labour  Conferences of formulation of minimum wages, same  wage and  benefits as regular workers for the contract  workers and granting  status of workers with attendant benefits to those employed in various Central Government schemes like Anganwadi, Midday Meal, ASHA, Para Teachers etc. On the contrary the Government drastically curtailed budget allocations to all those centrally sponsored schemes meant for poor people’s welfare.

            Beside these labour laws the Central Government is also doing away the workers from social security schemes like, EPF and ESI making them a optional aiming to dismantle the basic social security cover available to organized sector.
            The Government has not taken any concrete measures to curb price rise of essential commodities. On universal public distribution system, the Government is trying to scuttle it through Direct Benefit transfer scheme resulting further squeeze on the common people,
            After coming in Power this Government declared total Ban on recruitment in all Central Government Services causing large scale unemployment. 100% FDI in Railways, the biggest establishment of Central Government has been declared and further projects will be launched on PPP Model. Bigger and important stations will be given to private  parties to develop and take  users charges causing more burden on common man.49% FDI  has also been declared in Defence and 41 Ordnance Factories  will be privatized resulting more contractorization  of labour . Disinvestment has already been started in C.P.S.U.S. like Coal India Ltd., NTPC and NHPC etc. Plan to corporatize Ports is also in pipeline.

            Whatever promises were made by Modiji during election campaign. On all of those this Government has taken U turn. Not a single promise is being fulfilled. Land acquisition act is also being amended which will be against the interests of Farmers. No reasonable minimum support price for the agriculture products and nothing to compensate the loss of crops caused due to natural calamities.

            In Central Services the New Pension Scheme  was introduced  during the previous NDA Government and now this Government  also does not agree to replace it by Defined benefit Pension Scheme causing more miseries to the working people,

            The demands of Central Government Employees for grant of DA Merger, Interim Relief and date of effect of 7th CPC recommendations from 01.01.2014 has also been rejected.

            In Postal Department, Government is moving ahead to corporatize various services based on the recommendations of Task Force Committee headed by T.S.R Subramanian. The Department of Posts and Government of India has still not taken any decision to include G.D.S. in 7th CPC. The agreement and assurances made by the Postal Board during the course of negotiations on PJCA Strike Charter of Demands are not being implemented.

            So keeping all the facts in mind and in pursuance of decision taken by All Central Trade Unions to go on ONE DAY STRIKE on 2nd September-2015 , the National Executive of Confederation and Federal Secretariat of NFPE  have  also endorsed the decision to resist the onslaughts on working class in the wake of neo-liberal Economic Policies by participating in the strike.

            NFPE appeals to all the affiliates and entire rank and file to make maximum efforts for the grand success of ONE DAY 2nd September-2015 Strike and defeat Anti People, Anti Working Class Policies of Government of India.
