Conf/26/2013 Dated: 24.3.2013 
Dear Comrade,
                We invite your attention to the  efforts undertaken by us after the 12th December, one day strike action to bring about a united action by the Railway, Defence and other Central Government employees on certain pressing demands.  In this connection you will recall that Com. S.K. Vyas, our President had been writing and following it up with telephonic conversations to bring about such a platform for action. We are happy to inform you that the AIRF and AIDEF has now agreed to bring about a joint platform of action to project two important demands of the CGEs.

Dear Comrades,

As  you are aware, the Government in reply to a question raised in the Parliament has stated that setting up of the 7thCentral Pay Commission  for effecting wage revision of central Government employees is not presently under its consideration.  You will recall, that  a similar statement was made by the then Finance Minister, when the demand for setting up the 6th CPC was raised by the employees.  The Joint movement of the Central Government employees, for which we created the platform of the Steering Committee of the organizations participating in the JCM under the leadership of Late Com. J.P. Chaubey, the then General Secretary of All India Railway men Federation could ensure that the Government rescind its stand then and set up the 6th CPC.  The real value of wages determined by the 6th CPC has now been eroded to the extent of above 100% due to the unprecedented inflation in the economy and spiraling rise in the prices of essential commodities.  While the Government permits wage negotiation and revision in the fully owned Public Sector Undertakings every five years, the denial to revise the wages of Central Government employees despite such large scale erosion in the real value of wages is absolutely unjustified.
The Government had been persisting with the enactment of the PRFDA Bill in the Parliament in almost all sessions ever since the UPA II Government took over.  Ironically they could elicit support from the main Opposition Party in the country for this ill advised enactment.  Lakhs of new workers who have joined in various organizations of the Government since2004 are worried of their future, which is forlorn and bleak, in the wake of the denial of an age old social security scheme of Pension.  We have been together opposing this move right from the day, the NDA Government introduced the bill in the Parliament in 2003.  However, our efforts, actions and objections have all been ignored with disdain by the Government. Though they could not muster enough support required to pass the bill in the Parliament, the Union Cabinet has recently taken the decision to allow 49% FDI in the pension fund.
We are to channelize our efforts through a wider platform of Unity. Efforts are on anvil to bring about such a platform.  In the meantime, we have decided to call upon all Units and Branches of AiRF, Confederation and AIDEF to organize Demonstration on 29th April, 2013. in front of all offices and send the following telegram to the Prime Minister.
WITHDRAW PFRDA BILL AND SET UP THE 7TH CPC
TO EFFECT WAGE REVISION OF CENTRAL
GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES.

POLICY & PROGRAMME RESOLUTION ADOPTED IN THE AIC

1.         The after effects of the recession that devastated the economy of the capitalist countries is still looming large over their head and there is no immediate sign of recovery, eventhough the pro-capitalist economists and heads of the developed nations are claiming to the contrary.  The financial and industrial sectors of these countries are reeling under the negative impacts of recession.  Unemployment is growing like anything.  The bailout packages and other short and long term measures taken has only helped the trans-national corporations to survive, but the plight of the workers and common man is becoming more and more miserable.  Cuts in employment and social security measures have further aggravated the situation. The economies of the countries which are pursing a pro-socialist and anti-globalization policies are comparatively less effected and are poised for rapid economic growth.  The resistance against the ill-effects of the neo-liberal globalization policies are gaining momentum all over the world.  Workers went on strike and common people of those countries are also coming out to the street in large numbers protesting against these policies.  This 29th All India Conference of AIPEU Group-C, extend full solidarity and support to the struggles conducted by the workers and other toiling masses all over the world and pledge to be a part and parcel of this struggle.
2.         In our country, the UPA Govt. is virtually toeing the US line and is going ahead with the neo-liberal agenda.  Steep rise in prices of essential commodities, disbanding of public distribution system, disinvestment of public sector, introduction of casual and contract labour system,  decision to allow 51% FDI in multi-brand retail trade, hectic persuation to get major financial sector related bills on pension privatisation, banking and insurance sector, the game plan for privatisation of vital infrastructural and public utility services, the so-called private-public partnership in almost every sector, the repeated hike in prices of petroleum products are glaring examples of this policy.   Big scams and corruption has become the order of the day. Struggle and strikes are taking place in every sector against the neo-liberal reforms and also against the anti-worker, anti-people policies of the Govt.  The entire working class of India under the banner of United Platform of Mass Organizations is spearheading the struggle against these policies.  In the 2012 February 28th strike and in the 2013 February 20, 21 two days strike more than ten crores workers in the organized and unorganized sector have participated.  In the coming days, the struggle will be further intensified.  The Postal employees under the banner of National Federation of Postal Employees have participated in all the national strikes organized by the Central Trade Unions, including the last two days General Strike.  This 29th AIC of AIPEU Group-C congratulates the workers and employees who participated in the united struggle of the working class and we shall continue our struggle and shall always identify ourselves with the mainstream of the working class.

3.         The Central Govt. Employees are the first victims of the neo-liberal economic policies pursued by the Central Govt. from 1991 onwards.  During the last twenty years about eight lakhs posts are abolished.  Further five lakhs posts are lying vacant in various departments.  Many departments are closed or privatized.  More and more casual and contract workers are engaged. Social security schemes, including statutory pension scheme are given a go-bye.  Instead share market oriented contributory Pension Scheme is introduced.  Three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks are denied of their legitimate rights.  Casual, Part-time contingent employees are not given their due wage revision.  Even compassionate appointments are denied, imposing arbitrary restrictions.  Bonus ceiling not yet raised.  The demand for  appointment of 7th Central Pay Commission is not yet accepted, in spite of the thundering success of the 12th December strike organised by the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers.  Merger of 50% D.A. with pay stands rejected.  This 29th AIC of AIPEU Group-C, while saluting the Central Govt. Employees, particularly Postal employees, who participated in the 12th December strike in a big way and made it a historic success and calls upon the National leadership of the confederation to carry forward the struggle till the demands are met by the Government, especially the appointment of the 7th CPC, D A merger and reversion of the policy of down sizing, outsourcing, contractorisation and privatisation.

4.         In the Postal sector the Government has declared the draft National Postal Policy 2012.  It is nothing but a road-map to privatisation of Postal services by amending the Indian Post Office Act and granting licences to the multi-national courier services.  Government want to close down post offices in the name of loss.  Posts are abolished without any justification.  Workload has increased but new posts are not created.  Cadre restructuring and other sectional issues are yet to be settled.  The National Federation of Postal Employees (NFPE) has taken initiative to organise agitational programmes and mobilise the employees for action including indefinite strikes and as a result the Postal Administration was compelled to stop their move for closure of 9797 Post Offices.  Many long pending issues are settled and mass scale recruitment has taken place.  Department was forced to convene the JCM Departmental Council meetings and formal meetings and discuss all the issues with the staffside.  The Government is reluctant to settle the issues relating to Gramin Dak Sevaks and casual labourers.  Only through a united struggle of the entire Postal employees the policy offensives of the Govt. can be resisted and also the pending issues of the Postal employees including Gramin Dak Sevaks can be settled.  This 29th AIC of AIPEU Group-C appreciates the positive steps taken by NFPE and the P-3 CHQ in strengthening the unity of the Postal employees and also for making sustained efforts for settling the sectional demands of the Postal employees.  This conference further calls upon NFPE to chalkout agitational programmes in a phased manner for realisation of the pending demands.
