The Editor/Chief Reporter
For favour of publication please.
The National Joint Council of Action of Central Government Employees organizations participating in the Joint Consultative Machinery i.e. the workers and employees of the Railways, Defence, Postal and all other Central Government departments, has decided to serve the strike notice for an indefinite strike action commencing from 11thJuly, 2016 on 9th June, 2016. The strike notices will be served by all the Constituents separately on their respective heads of the Departments on the stipulated date of 9th June, 2016. The strike has become inevitable due to the nugatory attitude of the Government over the charter of demands submitted more than six months back and despite deferring the strike action earlied decided to be organized in the month of April, 2016 at the instance of the Government.
The 7th CPC submitted its report to the Government on 19th November, 2015 even though the Commission had concluded their deliberations as early as in Feb. 2015. The delay in the submission of the report itself was caused by the unwarranted intervention of the Government. It is now more than six months that the report is with the Government and the empowered committee set up by the government had neither come to any conclusion thereon nor has it caused any meaningful negotiation with the leaders of the Central Government organizations so far Exasperated over this highly nugatory attitude of the Government and the delay, the NJCA which met yesterday had to take this decision to go on indefinite strike from 11th July, 2016 onwards. The list of demands on which the strike action is organized is enclosed. We also enclose a copy of our communication, we have sent to our constituents, which explains the circumstances and issues.
We shall be grateful if the Press Statement is covered by your esteemed daily / Channel .
