The anti-worker machinery of the Central Government is planning to take away the rights of the workers one after another, gained through sustained struggles. One such crucial issue is the proposal being discussed in the finance ministry that in future no arrears need be paid after the wage revisions / pay commissions and that only wages will be increased prospectively.The government wants to deny the arrears to the employees.
If such a decision is taken, it will mean that even if the CG Employees are eligible for pay revision w.e.f. 01-01-2016, they will get it only from the date the orders are issued. There will be no arrears. The case with the PSU employees who are eligible for next wage revision after five/ten years will be the same.
The Trade Unions have to convey strong protests immediately to stop the government moving ahead with this anti-worker proposal.
