No.NC-JCM-2016/7th CPC Dated: January 17, 2017
Shri Rajnath Singh,
Hon’ble Home Minister,
We solicit your kind reference to the discussion the Staff Side delegation had with you and your esteemed colleagues in the Cabinet – Hon’ble Finance Minister, Railway Ministers – on 3oth June 206 and subsequently with your good self on 6th July 2016. In the light of the assurance held out for reconsideration of the minimum wage and multiplication factor through the setting up of a high level committee within a time
frame of four months, the National JCA had deferred the strike action which was to commence from 11.07.2016.
We had been patiently waiting for a meaningful discussion in the matter ever since then. Not only there had been any worthwhile or meaningful discussions thereafter but no settlement was also brought about till today though more than six months have been elapsed.
The National JCA met yesterday (17-01-2017) and almost all members expressed extreme disappointment over the turn of events. However, they felt that a meeting with your good self must be sought to sort out the issue amicably.
We shall therefore be grateful if you can indicate a date and time convenient to you, so that the undersigned along with Dr. M Raghaviah, the Leader of Staff Side, JCM could call on you with a view to explore reaching an agreement. Incidentally, we feel that it must be our responsibility to convey to you that the Central Govt Employees throughout the country are extremely critical of the fact that the Government had not found it possible to accept even a single issue taken up the Staff Side, JCM after the 7th CPC submitted its recommendations to the Government.
This apart, the CG Pensioners numbering presently more than the working employees are aggrieved of the fact that the one and only recommendation of the 7th CPC which was in their favour i.e. option No.1 have been recommended to be rejected by the Pension Department to the Government. Expecting a communication for an early meeting and thanking you
