FALSE PROPAGANDA & UNFOUNDED CRITICISM BY SUPPORTERS OF NDA GOVERNMENT’S DECISION ON ALLOWANCES

Immediately on announcement of Govt’s decision on Allowances a well-orchestrated propaganda was unleashed by the NDA Govt through media and its political machinery and also through some organizations and employees who supported the Government’s decision. The crux of the propaganda is as follows :-

1)         It  has been decided by the Government that HRA shall not be less than 5400, 3600 & 1800 for X, Y, and Z category of cities respectively. This floor rate has been calculated @ 30%, 20% and 10% of the minimum pay of 18,000-. This will benefit more than 7.5 lakhs employees belonging to pay level 1,2, and 3.

2)         It is because of the JCM Staffside Federations who opposed and rejected the HRA rate recommended by Pay Commission, the employees have lost one and half years arrears of allowances. Government was ready to implement HRA and allowances from 01-01-2016 along with Revised Pay.

3)         Even in the past, Revised HRA and other Allowances were not given from the same date. HRA and other Allowances are implemented from a later date without retrospective effect.

The propaganda and criticism, though not succeeded, should not go uncountered. This is  part of a deliberate attempt by the Govt. and its political machinery to misguide the general public and employees.

The following facts will reveal the hollowness of the propaganda of the Govt, and the criticism of those who supports the Govt’s decision.

(1)          More than 7.5 lakhs lower level employees ( in pay level 1, 2 and 3) will be benefited due to the decision of the Govt. to retain minimum HRA of 5400, 3600 and 1800 as 30, 20 & 10% of minimum pay of 18,000-.

It will not benefit 7.5 lakhs employees in lower level 1, 2 and 3. It will benefit only few thousand employees.

In Pay level – I the starting pay is 18,000-. After getting eight (8) increments (eight years service) pay will become 22,800-. An employee drawing 22,800- will get HRA above 5400, 3600, 1800 even if the HRA is 24% (5472) 16% (3648) and 8% (1824).

In Pay level – 2 the starting pay is 19,900- After getting five increments (5 years service) pay will become 23,100-. The official will draw 5544 (24%) 3696 (16%) and 1848 (8%) even if the minimum 5400, 3600, 1800 is not retained.

In Pay level – 3 the starting pay is 21,700-. After getting 2 increments the pay will become 23,100- . 24% (5544), 16% (3696) and 8% (1848) will be above 5400, 3600 and 1800-.

From the above it can be seen that only those officials below 8 years service in Pay        level – 1, below 5 years  service in Pay level – 2 and 2 years services  in Pay level – 3 will be benefited by the decision of the Govt to retain 5400-, 3600- and 1800- at level 1, 2 and 3 as minimum HRA at X, Y and Z class cities respectively. How many central Govt employees below 8 years service  in level -1 and below 5 years service in level -2 and below 2 years service in level – 3 will be working in the Central Govt departments as on date. Only few thousands. All others in level -1,2 and 3 will draw more than 5400-, 3600- and 1800-even if HRA is 24%, 16% and 8%. This being the reality, Govt through its press release given to media made false propaganda that 7.5 lakh employees will be  benefited by the Govt’s decision !!!  And those who welcomed the Govt’s decision are repeating the same lies.

(2)  It is because of the Federation leaders representing JCM National Council Staffside who opposed the HRA rate recommended by 7th CPC, employees lost one and half year arrears.

What is real fact?

Every time when Pay Commissions submit its report to Govt, Implementation Committee or Empowered Committee is constituted by the Govt to examine the recommendations of the CPC and submit report to the Govt for acceptance by Cabinet.  The implementation Committee or Empowered Committee will call for suggestions / modifications to the CPC recommendations from all organizations including National Council JCM Staffside. This time also Govt and the Implementation Committee followed the same procedure.

Accordingly, National Council JCM Staffside submitted detailed memorandum to Govt and Implementation Committee / Empowered Committees, seeking 26 modifications in the recommendations including Minimum Pay, Fitment formula, Allowances including HRA, Transport Allowance, Advances, MACP conditions, CCL conditions etc.,. The JCM Staffside also presented their view points before the Implementation Committee headed by Joint Secretary and Empowered Committee headed by Cabinet Secretary. Suppose the JCM Staffside leaders / Federations decides not to submit  any memorandum seeking modifications in the retrograde recommendations of the 7th CPC before the Implementation Committee / Empowered Committees and keep quite ( as argued by those who criticize the leaders and support the 7th CPC recommendations), what will be the reaction of the employees ? Will they not blame the leaders for silently supporting the Govt for implementing all the retrograde and negative recommendations of the 7th CPC ?

Inspite of JCM Staffside requesting for modifications the Cabinet meeting held on 29-06-2016 decided to accept the recommendations of the 7th CPC on Pay Scale without any modifications, rejecting the modifications requested by the Staffside. Cabinet also decided to refer all the allowances including HRA to a Committee headed by Finance & Expenditure Secretary.

Cabinet on 29-06-2016 has not decided to grant 24%, 16% and 8% HRA  recommended by 7th CPC. Then where is the question of accepting or rejecting the decision of the Govt when there was no such decision by the Cabinet.

Not only JCM Staffside Federations almost all the Unions / Federations / Associations have submitted memorandum to Govt seeking modifications in the retrograde recommendations of 7th CPC. What is wrong in it ? The fact is that Govt deliberately constituted the Allowance Committee and referred HRA and other Allowances to the Committee to delay and deny the arrears from 01-01-2016. Instead of protesting against the Govt’s decision (that is what Confederation has done), those who are desperately trying to turn the anger and resentment of the employees against Unions / Federations who demanded modifications, are bound to fail, as Central Govt employees are not that much fools to believe that propaganda.

(3)  Even in the past,  HRA and Allowances were not given retrospective effect.

Govt and those who welcomed and thanked Govt for its decision on allowances are continuously repeating the argument that in the past also allowances were not given retrospective effect from the date of Revision of Pay. But what is the actual fact?

In the past, revised allowances including HRA were granted from the month / next month of notification of Revised Pay Rules. Even then JCM Staffside has not welcomed or thanked the Govt but strongly protested and demanded grant of allowances from the same date from which Revised Pay is implemented. Even if the old practice is taken as precedence, this time employees have every right to get revised allowances including HRA from 01-07-2016 as Revised (Pay) Rues was notified on 25-07-2016. Those who welcomed the Govt’s decision are consciously and deliberately hiding this fact as many employees do not know what has happened in the past. More over never in the past any Pay Commission has recommended reduction in HRA rates.

The NDA Govt and its political machinery has made this type of propaganda when the Cabinet approved the recommendations of Pay scales recommended by the 7th CPC on 29-06-2016 without any modifications. At that time the propaganda was “big bonanza” to Central Government employees. This time also the same method of propaganda is adopted and the unfortunate part of it, is that some of our friends representing employees too contributed to such a false and baseless propaganda.

PROTEST AGAINST BETRAYAL OF NDA GOVERNMENT

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND WORKERS DECIDED TO ORGANISE

MASS PROTEST DEMONSTRATIONS AND BURNING OF HRA ORDERS ON 25th JULY 2017 AT MAXIMUM CENTRES THROUGH OUT THE COUNTRY

THOSE HANDS WHICH ARE AFRAID OF RAISING AGAINST INJUSTICES

THOSE TONGUES WHICH ARE AFRAID OF VOICING AGAINST INJUSTICES

ARE SYMBOLS OF SLAVERY AND SURRENDER.

Seventh Central pay Commission Report was submitted to Government on 19.11.2015. Most of the recommendations, especially in the case of Minimum wage, fitment formula, Pay scales of most of the cadres, Allowances, Advances, MACP, CCL, etc. are most retrograde. 7th CPC recommendations are the worst recommendations after the 2nd Pay Commission recommendations (1960). The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) comprising the National Council JCM Staff Side (mainly Railways, Defence and Confederation) gave notice for indefinite strike to Government on 09.06.2016, seeking modifications in the recommendations. Government refused to call the NJCA leaders for a negotiated settlement and unilaterally declared the decisions of the Cabinet on 29.06.2016. NJCA decided to go ahead with the indefinite strike. On 30.06.2016, Group of Cabinet Ministers including Shri Rajnath Singh, Home Minister, Shri Arun Jaitley, Finance Minister and Shri Suresh Prabhu, Railway Minister held discussion with the NJCA leaders. It was assured that Minimum Pay and Fitment formula will be increased and a High Level Committee will be constituted to submit recommendations in this regard to the Government. It was also assured that all other issues arising out of implementation of 7th CPC will be considered favourably. Four months time limit was also fixed for implementation of the assurances. Based on the above assurances the indefinite strike was deferred for four months.

Evenafter four months time limit fixed, no high level committee was constituted and all other issues remained unsettled. Government constituted committees after committee – Implementation Committee, Empowered Committee, Allowance Committee, Pension Option-I Committee, NPS Committee, Anomaly Committee etc. – but till this day no High Level Committee for increasing Minimum Pay and Fitment formula is constituted eventhough a Group of officers headed by Additional Secretary (Expenditure) held two meetings with the staff side without any discussion on Minimum Pay and fitment formula.

Committees were constituted to delay or deny the demands placed by staff side.

1.      Allowances Committee delayed its report for about ten months to deny increase in HRA rates and arrears from 01.01.2016.

2.      Pension Option-I Committee rejected the one and the only favourable recommendations of the 7th CPC i.e; Option-I parity for pre-2016 pensioners.

3.      NPS Committee categorically stated that withdrawal of NPS is not under the purview of the committee.

As the Government was not ready to honour its assurances given to the NJCA leaders, evenafter a lapse of four months, Confederation has requested the dominant organisations in the NJCA to revive the deferred indefinite strike. As there was no concensus in the NJCA regarding revival of indefinite strike or organizing any serious trade union action (for reason best known to all) against the betrayal of the Government, Confederation National Conference decided to organize independent agitation programmes. Accordingly Massive Parliament March with participation of about 15000 employees and pensioners on 15.12.2016, one day nationwide strike of about thirteen (13) lakhs Central Government employees on 16.03.2017, Mass dharna of about 3000 employees and pensioners in front of Finance Ministers office on 23.05.2017, Human Chain of Central Government employees and Pensioners at all major centres on 22.06.2017 were organized by Confederation for settlement of 21 points charter of demands which included the demands of all sections of employees and pensioners including Gramin Dak Sevaks, Casual Contract workers and Autonomous body employees and pensioners.

After more than eleven months from the date notification of Revised (Pay) Rules 2016 (25.07.2016), Union Cabinet approved the revised allowances on 28.06.2017 without any major modifications, including HRA and Transport Allowances applicable to all section of employees. HRA rate was not increased from 24, 16, and 8%. The date of effect was fixed as 01.07.2017 instead of 01.01.2016.

Some of our friends, who are welcoming and supporting the Government’s decision on allowances are arguing that never in the past Revived Pay and Revised Allowances were given from the same date and for HRA etc. retrospective effect was not given. They consciously want to hide the fact that in the past revised allowances including HRA were granted from the month/next month of notification of Revised Pay Rules. Even if that practice is taken as a precedence, this time employees have every right to get Revised Allowance including HRA from 01.07.2016, as Revised (Pay) Rules 2016 was notified on 25.07.2016. Similarly, never in the past HRA rates were reduced by Pay Commissions. Those who support the Government’s decision are deliberately hiding this fact to somehow justify their stand and misguide the employees, because of their guilty conscience.

As the dominant organisations of the NJCA have left from the path of struggle for realization of the 7th CPC related justified demands raised in the July 11th indefinite strike charter, Confederation has decided to carry forward the struggle against the betrayal of the Government and non-implementation of assurances given by the Hon’ble Ministers. We have made it open that we strongly disagree and disown the stand taken by the Secretary, National Council JCM staff side, (Who is also the convenor of NJCA) by welcoming and thanking the Government for the decisions on Allowances including HRA. Confederation represents the sentiments of entire Central Government employees pensioners especially grass root level workers. It cannot be a party to any statement or action which the ordinary workers feel as betrayal of their cause. Confederation shall continue its struggle against the injustices meted out to the Central Government employees and Pensioners (including Autonomous body employees and pensioners, Gramin Dak Sevaks and casual, Contract workers) by the NDA Government.

Descending to the level of submitting to the dictates of the Government, compromising on the basic principles of trade Union, leaving away the path of struggle ignoring the of principles of collective bargaining, getting addicted to the JCM machinery of never ending, no-result-oriented discussions and consultations --- is not the tradition of Confederation. Confederation is a different organisation which our critics and enemies cannot understand.

We are fighting against a Government which is aggressively implementing neo-liberal reforms and we know that struggle path is tough and difficult and require sacrifices. Eventhen, we prefer, that path than the path of opportunism, surrender and compromises. Eventhough we have not won our battle in full, we firmly believe that whatever achievements and benefits the NDA Government was compelled to grant (Example – enhancement of Bonus ceiling to 7000, eligibility for gratuity to NPS employees. 5th Pay Commission recommended parity to pre-2016 pensioners (option-3), microscopic modifications in HRA at minimum level and some other allowances including enhancement of Fixed Medical Allowance to Pensioners and retention of some of the allowances recommended for abolition etc.) is only because of the continuous nationwide campaign and struggle conducted by the Confederation and Confederation alone. Those who never participated in any strike or struggle and only enjoyed the fruits of the struggle and sacrifice of others can never understand the importance of struggle or strike. Empty vessels always go on making much noise, but we believe in action.

It is in this background, the National Secretariat of Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers has decided to intensify our struggle. To express the strong protest, anger and resentment of the employees, against the totally negative and indifferent attitude of NDA Government and also against the betrayal of the Group of Cabinet Ministers of NDA Government, Confederation calls upon the entire employees to organize mass protest demonstration on 25thJuly 2017 (25.07.2017 Tuesday) at all centres at centralized places and burn the orders on HRA issued by the Government. Wide publicity may be given to the programme through local print and electronic media and also social media.

The next phase of agitational programmes will be decided by the National Secretariat meetings of Confederation scheduled to be held at Bengaluru on 9th August 2017.

All affiliated organisations and C-O-Cs are requested to make the above programme a grant success.

Fraternally yours,

CONFEDERATION DISOWNS THE STATEMENT OF SECRETARY, STAFF SIDE, NATIONAL COUNCIL JCM

Com Shiv Gopal Misra, Secretary, Staff Side, National Council JCM & General Secretary, All India Railway Men's Federation has issued a Press statement "welcoming and thanking " the decision of the Central Government regarding implementation of the revised allowances to Central Government employees . The statement has created an impression among some section of employees that all the organisations of National Council JCM (including organisations affiliated to Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers)  are of the same opinion and all the leaders of the JCM Staff Side has cheated the employees. To put the records straight, Confederation National Secretariat like to make it clear that our opinion was not sought by Secretary, Staff Side, National Council JCM, before issuing such a statement. We have already given a call to the employees to hold nationwide protest demonstrations against betrayal of the NDA Government. Confederation alone has conducted a series of agitational programmes against the negative attitude of the NDA Govt. towards Employees and Pensioners, including 15th December 2016  Parliament March, 16th March 2017 one day strike , 23rd May 2017 Mass dharna in front of Finance Ministers office , 22nd June 2017 Human Chain etc. Confederation National Secretariat strongly disagree with certain views and comments made by Secretary, Staff Side, and organisations affiliated to Confederation who have representation in JCM totally disown the statement. We strongly condemn the unilateral attitude of Secretary, Staff Side, National Council JCM. The statement issued by the three Standing Committee Members of Staff Side National Council JCM who are representing Confederation in the JCM Standing Committee is furnished below.

STANDING COMMITTEE MEMBERS, STAFF SIDE NATIONAL COUNCIL JCM, REPRESENTING CONFEDERATION DISAGREE AND DISOWN THE STATEMENT OF SRI. SHIV GOPAL MISRA, SECRETARY, STAFF SIDE, NATIONAL COUNCIL JCM

It was extremely unfortunate that the Staff Side Secretary through his press statement issued yesterday has chosen to praise the Modi Government over the decisions it had taken on various demands of the Central Govt. employees. The said statement was issued apparently without causing any consultation either formally or informally with the other members of the Staff Side, in any case not at all in consultation with the signatories of this statement.  We, being the members of the Standing Committee, emphatically disagree and distance ourselves from the position taken by him in the Press Statement.

There had been no justification for the 7th CPC to reduce the rate of HRA by an imagined factor of 0.8. Neither during the discussions, the staff side had with the committee headed by the Expenditure Secretary, nor in the press release issued after the Cabinet meeting, the Govt. had advanced  any logic for their decision to restore the rate of HRA only for those who draw pay at the level of Rs.18000. There had been no appreciation of any of the concerns or issues raised by the staff side and whatever decisions so far taken by the Govt. was inconsonance with the views and recommendations of the top echelons of the bureaucracy,  be in the matter of allowances, minimum wage, fitment factor, rejection  of option no.1 for the pensioners or withdrawal of  NPS.
The highly defective computation of minimum wage by the 7th CPC and the consequent denial of a reasonable wage structure, withdrawal of existing allowances and benefits, virtual abrogation of the time bound promotion to the lower category of employees; rejection of option No. 1 to pensioners, refusal to grant atleast a  minimum guaranteed pension under NPS   require the  strongest condemnation.

The fact that decisions taken by the Govt. on 7th CPC issues are clear reflections of Modi Government's. anti- labour attitude ought to have been, what the staff side secretary conveyed through his press release. His statement has, as stated earlier sadly reflects the total disconnect between the common Central Govt. employees and JCM staff side leadership.

Had it been the statement on behalf of the AIRF, we would not have issued this denouncement  at all, as we consider that it is the prerogative of each organisation to view things in their perspective and formulate their  opinions.

POSTAL CASUAL LABOURERS STRUGGLE IN TAMILNADU

STRIKE DECLARED BY
NFPE CIRCLE CO-ORDINATING COMMITTEE

FAST IN FRONT OF CPMG OFFICE CALLED OFF

MOST INSPIRING STRUGGLE IN THE HISTORY OF CASUAL LABOURERS.

            As per the decision taken by the Central Working Committee of All India Postal Casual , Partime , Contingent and Contract Workers Federation , the fast infront of Chief PMG office Chennai commenced on 27th June 2017 demanding revision of wages of Casual Labourers with effect from 01.01.2006 and 01.01.2016 as per orders issued by Postal Directorate. Along with leaders of Casual Labour Federation , leaders of NFPE Circle Co-ordinating Committee (CCC) , Confederation State Committee also joined the programme extending full support and solidarity. The programme was organised under the leadership of NFPE CCC Tamilnadu Circle. More than 1000 casual workers participated in the struggle. Chief PMG held two round discussions with Circle Secretaries of NFPE on 27th June. CPMG took a stand that Directorate orders are not implemented in any circle and challenged our leaders to produce copies of the orders issued by Divisions in other circles. Next day morning Circle leaders produced before the Assistant Director ,  copies of orders issued and implemented in many divisions of Kerala , Andhra and Telangana including Vijayawada Region where the CPMG was working as PMG prior to his promotion as CPMG Tamilnadu. Understanding that his arguments stands demolished by NFPE Circle Unions , the CPMG , instead showing the courage to face the NFPE leaders again in the discussion table , suddenly left  Chennai (ran away !!) without intimating the leaders. It is learnt that he will not be available in Chennai for next four days.  NFPE COC held an emergent meeting and decided to declare one day strike on 13th July 2017 protesting against the negative stand of the Circle administration and demanding immediate wage revision of Casual Labourers. Accordingly 14 days legal notice for the strike was served on 28th June 2017. Entire employees of Tamilnadu Circle  (P3 , P4 , R3 , R4 , Admin , Postal Accounts , SBCO , GDS and Casual Labourers)  will go on strike for the cause of Casual Labourers declaring -- "an injury to one is an injury to all" !!!. As strike is declared , NFPE CCC decided to call off the fast in front of CPMG office and the mass fast ended at 5 PM on 28th June with thundering slogans.

            The Fast was inaugurated by Com M.Durai Pandian , General Secretary , Confederation Tamilnadu state.

NATIONWIDE PROTEST DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST THE CABINET DECISION ON ALLOWANCES TO CG EMPLOYEES

CENTRAL GOVT EMPLOYEES AGAIN BETRAYED BY NDA GOVERNMENT.
DATE OF EFFECT FROM 01-01-2016 AND RESTORATION OF RATE OF HRA DENIED
HOLD NATIONWIDE PROTEST DEMONSTRATIONS IN FRONT OF ALL OFFICES
NDA Government has once again betrayed the entire Central Govt Employees. The demand of the employees to restore HRA to 30, 20 & 10% is denied. Date of effect for allowances is fixed as 01-07-2017 denying 18 months arrears.

The BJP lead NDA Government deliberately delayed the legitimate right of the employees. The assurance given by Cabinet Ministers regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment Formula  is also not honoured till date. NDA Government is the worst Government as far as employees and workers are concerned.

Confederation National Secretariat calls upon entire Central Govt Employees to hold demonstrations in front of all Central Govt Offices protesting against the anti-employees, anti-workers stand of the NDA Government.

INDEFINITE HUNGER FAST IN FRONT OF CPMG OFFICE BY CASUAL LABOUR FEDERATION WITH THE LEADERS OF CONFEDERATION & NFPE (TN)

            Massive turn out of postal casual labourers and postal workers at the venue of Chief PMG office, Tamilnadu marked the beginning of indefinite fast by CHQ leaders of Postal Casual Labourers Federation today (27-06-2017) morning. The indefinite fast is for the single demand of implementation of DG orders on Casual labourers revision of wages in Tamil Nadu from 01-01-2006.

            The indefinite hunger fast continued for 28th June 2017 (2nd day) also.

Indefinite fast called off on serving of Strike Notice by NFPE COC TN Circle ! 
            On the face of CPMG going away from Chennai without meeting the leaders even after supplying proof of disbursement of arrears as per the orders of Directorate for implementation of revised wages of 6th CPC in Kerala & Andhra, the COC had no option but to serve strike notice. 

            Accordingly a strike notice was served on the Chief PMG for a strike of Postal Employees of Tamilnadu on 13th July. 

            Now the focus is on campaigning for the success of strike to win implementation of directorate orders for 6th CPC wages order to casual labourers in TN Circle. The indefinite fast by CHQ leaders under the leadership of Comrade M Krishnan (SG Confederation) is a new history in the movement of casual workers. 

            Before closing the programme comrade S.Theagarajan SG FNPO addressed the gathering and assured all possible support to 13th strike after consultation with FNPO circle unions. The Circle Administration is thus paving way for a militant state wide agitation of Tamil Nadu  Postal working class .



Extend solidarity to the indefinite hunger fast by Casual Labour Federation in Chennai



To

All  Circle / Divisional Secretaries of NFPE affiliates,



Dear Comrades,



Please the above report regarding the indefinite fast  commenced by leaders of Casual Labour Federation at Chennai along with NFPE Tamilnadu Circle leaders. All units are requested to organize lunch hour demonstration in support of the struggle.



R.N.PARASHAR

Secretary General
NFPE



A massive turn out of postal casual labourers and postal workers at the venue of Chief PMG office, Tamilnadu marked the beginning of indefinite fast by CHQ leaders of Postal Casual Labourers Federation today (27-06-2017) morning. The indefinite fast is for the single demand of implementation of DG orders on Casual labourers revision of wages in Tamil Nadu from 01-01-2006.

On seeing the most unjustified stand of Circle Administration that denies to revise wages of casual labourers on the basis of 6th and 7th CPC wages as ordered by Department of Posts. The CHQ in its CWC decided to undertake indefinite fast by CHQ leaders under the leadership of  Com. M.Krishnan (CHQ President), Comrades P. Mohan (CHQ G/S), Y.Nagabhushanam (Wkg. President CHQ), D.Sivagurunadhan (CHQ Treasurer), and S. Balamurugan (CHQ OGS)  as well as comrades J.Ramamurthy (President P3 CHQ), B.Parandhaman (NFPE CoC President), G.Kannan (Convener, NFPE CoC), also in the indefinite fast along with Comrade Krishnan.

Com. M.Duraipandian COC, G/S, Tamilnadu  inaugurated and several leaders of Confederation affiliates too graced the agitation. The important point to be highlighted is that the programme was held despite the negative stand of denial of permission to the indefinite fast by Circle Administration.
