AIRF – Go Ahead with the preparations for the Indefinite Strike….
All India Railwaymen’s Federation
Dated: June 29, 2016
The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,
Sub: Cabinet approval on the VII CPC report
As all of you are aware that the Union Cabinet has accepted the report of the VII CPC today.
It has been noticed that there is no improvement in Minimum Wage and Multiplying Factor as well, which was our hard pressed demand. Instead, wages, as recommended by the VII CPC have been accepted as it is, which is highly disappointing.
Only two committees have been formed, one to take care of the allowances and another for National Pension Scheme, which will submit their reports within four months’ time.
It is quite unfortunate that, our demand for improvement in the report of the VII CPC has not been considered by the government.
Therefore, it would be quite appropriate that, we should go ahead with our preparations for “Indefinite Strike”, slated to be commended from 06:00 hrs. on 11th July, 2016.
You are also advised -to intensify the mass mobilization.
With fraternal greetings!
