Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) salutes the 13 lakhs central government employees all over the country for the massive strike against the non implementation of the assurances given to their leaders more than eight months back and also against mass scale contractorisation of regular work in the Govt departments and non-regularisation of the contract workers on regular jobs.
It is to be recalled that the group of ministers including the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Railway minister Suresh Prabhu, Home Minister Rajnath Singh assured the demands of central government employees related to the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission, minimum wages, allowances etc would be setteld within four months. Instead of keeping their promise the government tried to threaten the employees with break in service, suspension and dismissal, dies –non etc. CITU congratulates the employees who went ahead with the strike by defying all such threats.
CITU demands that the government settle the demands of the central government employees through discussions without further delay.
CITU assures the central government employees of its support and solidarity to all their future struggles on their genuine demands.
