The Central Trade Unions BMS, INTUC, AITUC, HMS, CITU, AIUTUC, TUCC, AICCTU, UTUC, LPF and SEWA have decided to organise an All India Convention on 4th September 2012 at Talkatora Stadium New Delhi to plan the future agitational programmes on the major demands already raised in the 28th February Strike in which more than 10 crore workers all over India participated. BSNLEU was also was party to the decision and strike.
Despite such a strike participated by workers more than any other strike in the past, the government has not even called the leaders nor agreed for any of the demands raised in the strike. On the contrary the government is proceeding with more anti-worker actions, disinvestment programmes, and pro-corporate decisions granting subsidy after subsidy to them. No action is being taken to curb the high rising prices.The exploitation of the crores of contract labour continues unabated.
I hope that the All India Convention will discuss all these issues and take necessary decisions on agitational and other suitable programmes. BSNLEU will also be participating in the convention.
