TO REVERSE THE ANTI WORKER ANTI PEOPLE AND ANTI NATIONAL POLICIES -   DISTRICT LEVEL SATYAGRAHA IN LAST WEEK OF JANUARY!   SECTOR WISE JOINT STRIKE AGAINST PRIVATISATION!

CENTRAL TRADE UNIONS CALL UPON THE WORKING CLASS

The central trade unions heartily congratulate the working class of the country for their overwhelming and enthusiastic response to the unprecedented three day joint ‘mahapadav’ near Parliament on 9-11 November 2017. The exemplary discipline exhibited by the workers, from different states and different organisations, during the entire duration of the three days ‘mahapadav’ was highly significant and noteworthy. The massive participation of women workers including scheme workers, vendors, domestic workers, construction and home based workers as well as large number of young workers was another significant feature of the ‘mahapadav’.

Lakhs of workers from all over the country representing all the sectors of our economy have demonstrated their anger against the anti worker, anti people and anti national policies being pursued by the BJP led government at the centre. The ‘mahapadav’ has also once again displayed the determination of the working class to intensify the united struggle brushing aside the machinations of the communal divisive forces trying to disrupt their unity.

The central trade unions deplore the attitude of the BJP led government in totally ignoring the sufferings of the workers due to its policies and its stubborn insistence in going ahead with the very same disastrous policies. In such a situation the central trade unions have no other option but to intensify their struggle to reverse the anti worker anti people anti national policies of the BJP government to force their reversal.

Towards this objective, in the light of our 8th August, 2017 National Convention of workers held at Talkatora Stadium, New Delhi the central trade unions call upon the entire working class of the country to prepare for a prolonged agitation including strike. If the Government does not change its attitude, the CTUs will be forced to explore for the country wide national indefinite strike. In the meanwhile, prolonged agitations and actions will continue in the next phase of our united trade union movement. As a follow-up of this workers/employees’ 3 days padav, we take following activities in the coming months:

· Complete joint district level conventions by the first week of January 2018
· District level ‘Satyagraha’ in the last week of January; the common date for all districts to be decided by the state level joint meeting of central trade unions and industrial federations
· Sectoral/ industry level joint strike whenever the government takes measures at privatisation
· Protest actions on the day of presentation of Union Budget if it contains anti worker measures
· Central trade unions to meet soon after presentation of Union Budget to plan future course of action
