The adamant and anti-worker actions of the CGM Kerala has compelled the BSNLEU and CCLU to continue and strengthen the struggle against victimisation and on the demands of the casual and contract workers like increasing the minimum wage, upgrading unskilled workers etc. The Hunger Strike by the CCLU has completed 23 days and still no fruitful negotiations have taken place. Leaders of BSNLEU and SNEA who supported the struggle also have been victimised. The whims and fancies of a CGM is adversely affecting the efficiency of the services.
The Action Committee has decided to organise a massive March to the Residence of the CGM Kerala today, 28th July 2015. The March will be inaugurated at the CGM Office premises by Com. Anathalavattam Anandan, State President CITU and then will march towards the residence of the CGM. Hundreds of workers will be participating in the march.
