Following statement was issued by Comrade Amarjeet Kaur- General secretary AITUC to the Press today

AITUC deplores the policy of Central Government to transfer all the burden of its own mis-management of Economy to the Working Class

AITUC protests against the arbitrary decision of the BJP led NDA Government to freeze the Dearness Allowance (DA) due to the Central  Government Employees and DR due to the Pensioners.

Taking shelter under the umbrella of COVID-19 Virus, every day the Govt. is taking one or other decisions to attack the working class of the country who are already in deep crisis, distress after the lockdown in the country. AITUC has made several representations to the Labour Minister in this regard as well as about the violations of the government’s advisories, but in vain.

            The latest attack of the Govt. is the freezing of DA to Central Govt. Employees and its pensioners. The Cabinet already approved during the month of March 2020 to release 4% additional DA to the Central Govt. Employees and Pensioners in accordance with the increase in All India Consumer Price Index(Workers). Instead of issuing the Govt. order to implement the decision, the Ministry of Finance issued an order on 23/04/2020 freezing of DA of Central Govt. Employees numbering 48 lakhs (including Armed Forces) and 65 Lakhs pensioners  which includes 60%, Ex-serviceman who defended the country during their service life. DA is not a gift of the Govt. DA is paid  to the employees only to compensate the cost of living and to protect the  wages  from erosion in the real value on account of  inflation. Govt. has got no moral authority to freeze the DA of the Central Govt. Employees & Pensioners. By not paying the increased DA to the Govt. Employees & Pensioners for 18 months the Govt. is saving more than 50,000 Crores. This savings will go to whom ?, whether to the Corporate Houses or to the suffering workers of this country ?

The government is not contemplating to withdraw any of the tax concessions including the recently reduced Corporate Tax which benefitted them to the tune of Rs One Lakh Forty Five Thousands crores (1.45 lakh crores) given to the Big Corporates. The Government had in the last five and half years written of the loans of these Corporates to the tune of Rs seven lakh and seventy thousands (7,70,000 crores) of crores. Above all that there are more than Rupees  13 lakh crores of pending loans called NPAs to be recovered from these Corporate houses. It is the fact on parliament records that the tax recovery to the tune of Rs 8 lakh and 90,000 crores is pending in which the major defaulters again are these Corporates. This is also on record in parliament that 36 rich business entities left the country in the last 5 years fleecing our banks to the tune of more than one lakh crore rupees.

            The Government has got no programme to curtail the price rise on essential commodities. Instead of freezing the price rise,  Govt. is squeezing the employees. It is the  Central Govt. & State Govt. employees who are in the frontline in the field fighting against the dangerous COVID-19 Virus. They are under severe risk and the Govt. is not able to provide even the required Personal Protective Equipments to them.  When the Private Corporate Houses have gone hiding during this lockdown period, it is the  Govt. Employees in the Health Department, Defence, Railways, Postal, Power, Oil, Coal etc., are in the field to provide services and to prevent the spread the COVID-19 Virus. The Govt. instead of recognizing the services of the Central Govt. Employees and Pensioners have started punishing them economically. The Central Govt. Employees have already contributed their one day wages to the PM-CARES Fund, which is a big amount.  This huge amount will go to whom, whether to Corporate Houses or to the suffering workers of this country. This is the doubt of the people of the country.

            AITUC opposes the arbitrary and drastic decision taken by the Modi Govt. against its own employees and pensioners. The AITUC urges upon the Govt. of India to immediately withdraw this anti labour decision. The AITUC extends its support and solidarity to all the Central Govt. Employees and Pensioners in their protest against the arbitrary and unjustified decision of the Govt.

CITU DENOUNCES CENTRAL GOVT DECISION TO FREEZE AND CONFISCATE INCREASE IN DEARNESS ALLOWANCE FOR CENTRAL GOVT EMPLOYEES AND PENSIONERS

The Centre of Indian Trade Unions denounces the Central Govt’s decision to freeze, rather confiscate the increase in Dearness Allowance payable to Central Govt employees and pensioners falling due from January 2020 and also future dues, falling due on July 2020 and January 2021 on the plea of financial crisis arising out of COVID 19 vide Finance Ministry Order no 1/1/2020-E-II(B) dated 23rd April 2020.

No doubt, the country has been passing through a financial crisis but why should the workers and employees be made the sacrificial item for the same who themselves suffer most owing to Covid-19 followed by lockdown. Quite a number of employees are deployed and consequently are involved in various governmental activities and services meant to combat the spread of the pandemic  Covid-19 especially of those departments declared as emergency services viz, health, postal, defence, railways etc. While taking such decision Govt did not bother to consult the unions and federations of the central govt employees, displaying rabid authoritarianism.

CITU strongly urges that response to financial crisis by the central govt must start with measures to garner resources where it is there aplenty at the disposal of handful of ultra rich class. As Per OXFAM Report, combined wealth amassed by only 63 billionaires in India is more that the total Union Budget in 2018-19 which was at Rs 24, 42, 200 crore. Top 10% of population cornered 77% of national wealth. Wealth of India’s richest 1 per cent is 4 times more than the bottom 70%. Govt must tap this huge accumulation of wealth with barely 5% of ultra-rich, amassed mostly through undue and illegitimate patronization of the economic policy regime, through appropriate direct taxation/wealth tax measures instead of brutally pouncing on the working peoples’ earnings and livelihood. And this right is vested with the Central Govt only

CITU strongly condemns this retrograde decision of the Central Govt to confiscate outright the legitimate dues of the employees and pensioners on account of increase in DA till January 2021, although prices of all essentials will continue to increase to further increase the profit of the big-business/corporate.

CITU demands withdrawal of this DA Confiscation order by the central government also demands that the state governments be extended financial help to enable continuity of variable DA payment to their employees. CITU calls upon the Govt employees’ movement in particular and the trade union movement in general to unitedly oppose this retrograde anti-worker measures.

MEETING WITH SECRETARY POST

Today on 17-4-2020, A Delegation of NFPE leaders comprising Coms R.N Prashar Secretary General & GS PIII,  D. B.Mohanty GS PIV and P.Suresh GS R IV held meeting with Shri. P.K.Bisoi Secretary Post. Shri S.K.Kamila Member Personal was also present.
The following issues were discussed.

Salary :-  We requested Secretary (P) that salary of officials during lock down period should be paid in full as per the guide lines issued by DOPT. Even salary /wages of Casual Laborers Part time employees, Daily rated mazdoors and out sourced workers should be paid in full. We requested to issue general instructions in this regard. As some officers at lower level are violating these instructions. Secretary agreed to issue instructions in this regard.

(   a)  As some news are coming that salary of employees may be reduced by the Government of India. At this we protested very strongly that we will not allow any type of salary cut.
   At this Secretary asked for some more Donation /Contribution. We proposed that Administration and Unions should appeal to all to contribute voluntarily. Some capable persons may contribute more. We told that already One day salary has been taken. 
   If Government asks more, One day more salary can be taken from the pay of next month. If Government will reduce salary, agitational  programme can be launched.

Insurance :- We raised the issue of 50 lakh insurance for the Postal Employees. On this Secretary told that this is not feasible but they are planning some ex-gratia to both regular and GDS Employees. Orders will be issued soon.

Rotational transfer:- we requested to defer rotational transfer this year as it involves more dislocation of staff and more expenditure. In the period of financial crisis this will not be good for economic health of country also. At this Secretary agreed and told that transfer will be done in inevitable circumstances only.

Attendence on Duty. At this Secretary told that they have not revised previous guide lines issued from Directorate and DOPT. Every officer should follow the same.
We appeal all Circle, Divisional and Branch Secretaries of NFPE affiliated unions to take up the matter with appropriate authority even if any violation Please report to concerned CHQ and NFPE HQ.

Membership Verification:- Member (P) told that fresh membership verification will be deferred and instructions will be issued soon.
For change of membership in the month of April every year for that also at least two months more time  will be given.  Orders will be issued separately

                    We raised issues of Victimization by Superintendent of Sambalpur Division (Odisha), Tejpur Division (Assam) and some cases of UttarPradesh Circle. At this also Member (P) assured to take suitable action.
