PRESS STATEMENT
Dated 8th January, 2019
About thirteen (13) lakhs Central Govt. Employees commenced nationwide two days strike today (8th January 2019) as per the call given by Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers. The main demand of the strike is “Scrap New Contributory Pension Scheme (NPS) & Restore Old Pension Scheme (OPS)”. In fact, the share market oriented NPS is nothing but “No Pension Scheme”. The strike is also to express the anger and protest of the Central Government employees and Pensioners against the betrayal of the NDA Government by not honouring the assurances given by Group of Ministers headed by Sri. Rajnath Singh, Home Minister, to leaders of the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) on 30th June 2016 that the Minimum Pay and Fitment formula will be increased. Even after a lapse of two and a half years, the BJP Government has not implemented the assurance. The indefinite strike from 11th July 2016 was withdrawn believing the assurance.
