10 Central Trade Unions call for a General Strike on 8th Jan 2020 : Reasons & Demands.

10 Central Trade Unions call for a General Strike on 8th Jan 2020 : Reasons & Demands.

National Convention of Workers organized by the Central Trade Unions call For Nationwide General Strike on 8 January 2020.

The National Open Mass Convention of Workers organized by the ten Central Trade Unions namely INTUC, AITUC, HMS, CITU, AIUTUC, TUCC, SEWA, AICCTU, LPF, UTUC, independent federations and associations of various sectors including some independent unions called for a nationwide General Strike on 8 January 2020 against the anti-worker anti people anti-national policies of the Modi-2 Government.

The national economy is slowing down. The adverse effects are already being felt by the workers in unorganised as well as organised sectors in the form of large scale retrenchment and closures. In the name of the recession, the Central Government is taking steps such as reducing corporate taxes, and giving them big bonanza to the tune of Rs.1.45 lakh crores from the national exchequer while not a single penny is spent to ensure job security or employment allowance to the workers. The government measures are supply-side, when all the economists are unanimous that the crisis is on the demand-side.

While the Central Trade Unions are jointly demanding 
• a national minimum wage of Rs 21000/- pm, 
• pension to all, 
• scrapping of NPS and restoration of the old pension scheme,
• control on price rise in essential commodities and for universal public distribution system,
• demanding generation of new jobs and filling up of sanctioned posts,
• regularisation of Scheme Workers in Government posts, 
• of contract workers working against regular posts, ensuring equal pay for equal work, 
• strengthening of Welfare Boards for Unorganised Sector workers, 
• increased budgetary provision for MNREGA and agriculture, that will put money in the hands of the toilers and give boost to the economy.

The Central Government is pushing codification of Labour Laws, allowing Fixed Term Employment, privatisation of PSUs, allowing 100 percent FDI in railways, defence, coal and other sectors,  bank mergers and so on, that will lead to massive redundancies and extreme exploitation of workers. 

Now the Central Government has started reducing the contributions that the employers have to pay under the Provident Fund Act and the Employees State Insurance Act, justifying the move saying, this will increase the take-home pay of the workers. The Government openly states that these steps are being taken in the name of “ease of doing business”. The Government boasts that India’s ranking is going up in the World Bank Index of “Ease of doing business”. All this is being done at the expense of the working people.

The workers from all these sectors have repeatedly warned the Government against these retrograde steps, even by going on massive strikes.  The Government persists by using diversionary tactics of raising emotive non-issues to divide the people and haunt the minorities. The Convention pledged to fight theses communal and divisive forces.

5th UNI Asia Pacific Regional Organisation’s (Apro) Regional Conference

Date : 9.12.2019

5th UNI Asia Pacific Regional Organisation’s (Apro) Regional Conference 

The UNI Asia Pacific Regional Organisation’s (Apro) 5th regional conference opened in Kathmandu, Nepal, on 20-11-2019 with an appearance by the  country’s Prime Minister Shri KP Sharma Oli and a mission to ensure a just transition for workers in a digitalised economy.

In this meeting, the agenda for the union federation’s next four years, more than 600 labour leaders from 20 countries participated in debate and adopted strategies  to grow unions’ power in the new world of work. UNI Apro is the union federation in the Asia Pacific region of UNI Global Union.  Worldwide, UNI represents 20 million workers in over 150 different countries in the service industries.  

The Prime Minister of Nepal KP Sharma Oli said: “We measure development and success not by just the GDP but by the progress of the people—particularly the working people. No one should be left behind.

“We recognise the power of strong unions to organise and mobilise for higher wages, a better world, and a just transition. Congratulations to UNI Apro for constantly championing these things.”

Apro Regional Secretary Christopher Ng commented: “We are happy to be in a country as hospitable and resilient as Nepal, and I thank the Prime Minister for his inspiring words as well as for the news of the advances in workers’ rights and conditions here.” Like Prime Minister Oli said, we must put people at the centre of development. Too often, we’ve seen inequality grow as GDP goes up, and strong unions are the best way to reduce the wealth gap while advancing workers’ rights in an ever-changing economy.”

During the conference, UNI Apro is celebrated victories in the region, such as big wins by Nepalese private hospital workers. In Bangladesh, Grameen Phone employees gained union recognition after a seven-year struggle. Indonesian union ASPEK mobilized massive numbers to push through a minimum wage increase. In Korea, Oracle workers won their union after a 500-day strike.  In Japan and India, printing and graphical unions have formed alliances to grow their organisations by thousands. Care workers in New Zealand have secured pay equity.

But there is still work to be done, and the conference wished to energize and mobilize the region’s unions to build on their successes through solidarity and cooperation.

Christy Hoffman, UNI Global Union General Secretary, added: “A just transition is within our reach, but it requires us to act now and to act in bigger and bolder ways than ever before. It requires organising and holding corporations and governments accountable. Together, we will make our economies work for the benefit of everyone—not just the few—and that is the goal of this conference and this region.”

On Friday, 22 November, Christopher Ng had stand down after 36 years of tireless service as the Regional Secretary of UNI Apro and its predecessor organisation. In place of Mr Ng, Sri Rajendra Kumar Acharya, hasbeen elected as Regional Secretary unanimously. UNI ILC and FNPO felicitated Bri Chris and Bro Rajendra in a grand manner. Our UNI ILC has been honoured by electing Bro Milind Nadkarni, President as a member of Excecutive Committee. The hall resounded withe the voice of delegates Unity, Gender equality, decent working conditions and dignified wage structure. 

World Post and Logistics conference is going to be held at Dhaka, Senegal in June 2020.
