Prime Minister Narendra Modi met the leaders of the 11 Central Trade Unions on 19th July 2015 and gave assurance that their 12 Point demands will be considered by the Government. But no definite assurance was given on accepting the demands including the minimum wage of Rs. 15,000 for contract workers, on social obligations etc.
The Central TUs have given a call for complete strike on 2nd September 2015 on the 12 point demands which they have been raising for the last few years and on which the government have not taken any favourable decision. The independent federations of CG employees, state government employees, PSUs and private – all workers are going to participate in the strike which is expected to be the biggest strike in the country so far.
Assurances of the government can be believed only when they are implemented.
