CITU Condemns Notification of ESMA by Lt. Governor, Delhi

The Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) condemns the notification of Delhi government under order of the Lt. Governor imposing ESMA against Electricity Employees and Engineers in NCT Delhi from joining nationwide workers general strike on 8-9 January, 2019.

Lt. Governor issued this notification using Haryana ESMA, 1974 using Government of India’s Home Ministry’s GSR extending the same in Delhi. 

ESMA notice is issued selectively against joining the strike call of CITU even though it is the joint call of 10 central trade unions and most of the independent national federations of the workers and employees.

CITU also condemns intimidation by some state governments, including the Government of West Bengal and the Government of Tamilnadu, threatening termination of service, service break, 8 days wage cuts etc attacking on the Constitutional, Statutory and Democratic rights of the workers and employees.

CITU calls upon all sections of workers and employees, irrespective of affiliations, to join the nationwide workers general strike on 8-9 January, 2019 making it historic as a befitting reply to such attacks of the governments, administrations and managements.
