National Joind Council of Action
4, State Entry Road, New Delhi — 110055
Dated: August 18, 2018
The Cabinet Secretary,
Government of India and
Chairman, National Council/JCM
The NJCA of the Constituent Organizations of the JCM met on 18.08.2018 at Delhi and adopted the enclosed Resolution.
The NJCA noted that there is serious agitation amongst the Central Government Employees as the issues of – (i) Upward Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula, (ii) Scrapping the New Contributory Pension Scheme, (iii) Allow Option No.1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula, have not yet been resolved and the government is not in a mood to administer justice to those demands.
The NJCA has taken a serious note of the government’s indifferent attitude towards the demands of the Central Government Employees by going back from its assurances, held out to the NJCA, through the Group of Ministers, on 30.06.2016 and 06.07.2016.
Considering the indifferent and anti-labour attitude of the government in not settling the three major demands, mentioned above, the NJCA has decided to revive the decision of an “Indefinite Strike” in all the Central Government Organizations, responsibility of which shall squarely fall on the government.
It is urged upon the government to come to a negotiated settlement on the following issues:-
(a) Upward Revision of Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula
(b) Scrapping the New Contributory Pension Scheme,
(c) Allow Option No.1 as one of the Pension Fitment Formula,
An earlier and favourable action is solicited.
