CITU CONDEMNS THE GOVT MOVE TO REDUCE THE EMPLOYERS’ CONTRIBUTION IN EMPLOYEES PROVIDENT FUND

26th May 2017

Modi Govt’s fourth year begins with further intensifying the attacks on the rights of the working people of the country.
It is highly condemnable that the Labour Department of the Central Govt. has proposed reduction of the employers contribution to the Employees Provident Fund from 12% to 10%.
While the Govt. claims that the rights of the workers will be safeguarded, this move on reducing EPF contribution of employers exposes the pro-corporate policies of the Govt and its only concern for “ease of doing business”.
Labour Department of the Govt. has proposed this as an Agenda for the meeting of Central Board of Trustees of EPFO.
CITU demands that the Govt. immediately withdraw this proposal.
CITU calls upon all the Trade Unions and workerS to unitedly protest against this pro-employer move of the Govt. of India.
