The Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, along with other employee federations from the Railways and Defence, have decided to hold a massive demonstration in New Delhi on May 23
Taking a stand to demand a decision on the amendments to pay revision, the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, along with other employee federations from Railways and Defence, have decided to hold a massive demonstration in front of the office of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, at New Delhi on May 23.
Demanding regularisation of contract, casual, part-time and contingent employees, the All India Postal Casual, Part time, Contingent and Contract Workers Federation, including New Delhi will throw in its lot with the demonstration.
The Central Government employees have been agitating, demanding amendments in minimum wages, fitment formula and other provisions of the Pay Revision Commission (PRC). The centre, responding to the protests, had constituted high-level committees to consider the demands with regard to the PRC, allowances and pensions, with the deadline of four months.
However, even after 10 months, no report has come forth, and the demands remain unsettled. In line with that, after the strike and march to the Parliament on March 16, the Confederation had decided for a demonstration on May 23. The group also has plans to go on an indefinite strike if the government does not concede to the matter.
