2nd National Women’s Convention of Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers was held from 25th November, 2013 to 26th November, 2013 at Multi purpose hall, Civic Centre, New Delhi. Pro. Usta Patnaik, Professor Emeritus, Jawaharlal Nehru University inaugurated the Convention. Com. Amarajit Kaur, Secretary, AITUC delivered the key-note address. The inaugural Session is presided by Com. Gita Ghosal, Chairperson of the Women’s Committee.  Com. C. P. Shobhana, Convenor of Women’s Committee, Com. S.K. Vyasji, Advisor, Confederation of Central Government Employees And Workers, Com. KKN Kutty, President of CCGEW and Com. M. Krishnan, Secretary General, CCGEW were on the Dias. The Convention commenced with progressive songs by West Bengal delegates. Chairperson announced the constitution of the Credential Committee consisting of Com. Seetha Lakshmi (NFPE), Com. Manisha Mazumdar (Printing & Stationery) Com. Jyothi Samal (Atomic Energy) Com. Jaitha (Audit & Accounts), Com. Nirmala (ITEF) and also the Minutes Committee consisting of Com. Mausumi Majumdar (NFPE) and Com. Laxmi Swaminathan (Civil Accounts).

Prof. Usta Patnaik, in her inaugural address provided a bird’s eye view of the economic model designed by the neo-liberal policies and the resultant misery heaped on the mass of Indian population. In her classic presentation she demolished the arguments of some economists, who glorified the benefits of neo-liberal policies, by quoting the statistics from the database of the National Sample Survey.  Undoubtedly top 25% of Indian population enjoyed the goodies as enjoyed by their counterparts in USA and Europe due to the EMI (equated monthly instalments). This is one of the rosy pictures the hegemonists of neo-economic policy present in support of this economic model. If income distribution is analyzed, it will be clear, that majority of the population is exploited for the benefit of the miniscule. The mass of the rural and urban population is pushed to malnutrition. The required calories per day in the rural areas and urban areas are 2200 and 2100 respectively. But the 90% of people living in urban areas are sustaining with below 1800 calories. Compared to the year 1983 the mass of the population is cutting down their food intake of their families and diverting their incomes to meet the raising cost of health, education and transport. This reflects the disgraceful state of affairs even after more than 60 years of Independence. The women employees working in garment factories in the Export Zones are being exploited to the hilt. The daily targets of work are high and hence, the women employees are forced to work for more than 10 hours per day to complete the targets. The toilet break is only for 10 minutes. Frequently drinking of water is not allowed so that no more toilet breaks.  No identity cards are given, so that no one establishes the permanency of the job. All these woes came out in a public hearing of women employees who work in garment export zones of Tamilnadu. Agrarian crisis is compounded since the implementation of these neo-liberal economic policies. Compared to the years 2004-05 the economic growth by the year 2009-10 collapsed. Unemployment is in raise. The FRBM Act (Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management Act) introduced in the year 2003 at the behest of World Bank led to the cut in Governmental expenditure. It is estimated that every Rs.100 less spent by Government will result in Rs.500 less in the income of the people. That means the budgetary support will spurt the economic growth. This was killed by FRBM. Agrarian crisis worsened due to non-availability of easy credit for agriculture. Even the nationalized banks replicated the US model of easy credit to buy the consumer goods. Thus the consumer credit is pushed. It aggravated the crisis. All these policies directly or indirectly affected the common people of rural and urban areas including the women. Prof. Usta Patnaik called upon all the women employees to realize these aspects and fight to stop these policies.

With her fiery and powerful keynote address Com. Amarjit Kaur, Secretary, AITUC made a strong case for more and more participation of women employees in Trade Union activities. Taking the cue from Prof. Usta Patnaik speech, she reminded the participants of the Convention of their role as a privileged class in emancipation of the drudgery of large mass of women employees working in unorganized sectors. The women and children working in the slate-manufacturing units of Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh are deprived of their basic necessities of life. The children are driven out of schools in search of daily lively hood for the family. The silicosis disease engulfed the prime age of the people of these regions. No health-care for them. No permanent employment for them. The plight of women workers in the Export Zones of Fisheries is horrible. Continuous and untimely work in the saline and cold seawaters has even disturbed the biological order. These contract workers have no rights and even attempt to unionize will not be spared. The women employees working in many such sectors have no maternity leave, not to think of Child Care leave. The crisis in agrarian sector pushed the life of rural population below animal state of living. The “gobar anaj” the grain collected from the dung of the animals for human consumption in areas like Bundhelkhand is the reflection of the shattered Indian economy under the neo-liberal policies of the Rulers. The entire Working Class, keeping the banner inhibitions aside, came together and is waging a battle to defeat these policies. The Women has inherited a rich tradition of fighting spirit from the First Independent battle fought by Rani Jhansi and from the Indian freedom movement. They should assert their role and fight not only for their rights but also fight for the under privileged.  Com. Amarjit Kaur exhorted the women employees to take this challenge. She advised the women employees to strengthen the unions and work in the unions. She suggested to organize the women employees by conducting exclusive trade union classes to equip them with  the knowledge of the various legislations enacted to safe guard the women employees.

Com. S.K. Vyasji, the Advisor of the CCGEW also opined that the women employees should have the knowledge of all the Acts to defend them selves against the harassment in work places. The grievance cell formation for  women in each establishment should be insisted. The unity among the employees is important to fight out the harassment of women employees. He wished the Convention a great success.

Com. KKN Kutty, President, CCGEW has extensively spoken on the charter of demands including the wage revision and merger of D.A. He delved on the situation after the announcement of constitution of 7th Central Pay Commission.  Com. KKN gave a Clarion call to all women employees to unite and participate in the future struggles under the banner of CCGEW to realize the Charter of Demands.

Com. Shobana, Convenor, Women’s Committee submitted her report. She told that the Confederation is a strong organization representing the 13 lakh Central Government employees. The restrictions imposed on the grant of CCL are removed to some extent because of the efforts CCGEW. Whatever achievement so far made is possible because of the united struggles waged under the banner of CCGEW. She narrated how the GDS, Casual and Contract workers in the Postal Department are discriminated. The decisions taken in the first Women’s Convention held at Kolkata have been implemented. She requested all the women employees to participate in large number in the ensuing March to Parliament at Delhi on 12-12-2013 and also in all the campaign and struggle programmes of  Confederation.

Com. K. P. Rajagopal, Secretary General, Income Tax Employees Federation, Com. M.S.Raja, Secretary General, All India Audit & Accounts Association , Com. I.S.Dabas, Deputy Secretary General, NFPE, Com. Brigu, Secretary General, Civil Accounts Employees Association, greeted the Convention.

About 117 women delegates representing various Organisations from the nook and corner of the country participated in the Convention. The remarkable feature of this 2nd Convention as observed by Com. S.K.Vyasji, is that the women representatives have become more vocal and assertive. In the discussions more than 20 delegated participated and given their suggestions and brought the problems to the notice of the leadership. Removal of age restriction of the children under CCL, extension of CCL on remarriage, grant of CCL to look after the grand children, providing basic amenities at the work place, problems of casual, contract and out-sourced women employees, attacks on women employees in West Bengal, enhancement of minimum age of employment, inclusion of two women representatives from casual and contract workers in the mahila committee, posting women in day shifts, apart from the policy demands of reservation for women in all All India Committees, holding of periodical meetings of the Mahila Sub-Committee are some of the issues raised by the women delegates. Many Women delegates emphasized the need for strengthening the unions and need for inculcation of union spirit among the women employees.

Karnataka Women delegates led by Com. Chandramma Linga Raju, AIPAEA, honoured Com. S.K. Vyasji over a standing ovation given by the entire delegates and guests present in the Convention.

Com. M. Krishnan, Secretary General, CCGEW, summed up the entire proceedings and told that the aim of formation of Mahila sub committee is to encourage the more and more women employees to participate in the decision making process. The Chairperson and the Convener of the Mahila Sub-Committee are members of the National Executive of the Confederation and they are part of decision-making body. He assured that in the coming days more and more women members will be included in the Executive Committees of All India Organisations. He touched all the issues raised in the discussion by the delegates and assured that each and every problem and demand raised by the delegates will be discussed in the Confederation and a separate Women Charter of Demands will be prepared along with the Memorandum to be submitted to the Government and 7th CPC. This Charter and Memorandum will be circulated and published on all the web sites of all organisations and will be given wide publicity and a feedback will be obtained before finalization. He thanked the Delhi CoC for the excellent arrangements made to conduct the Convention in a very good environment.

The new panel for the Mahila sub-Committee has been elected unanimously. Com. Usha Bonepalli, ITEF, Andhra Pradesh has been elected Chairperson and Com. Seetha Laksmi, NFPE, Karnataka, has been elected Convener.

The 2nd National Convention of Women ended successfully with a resolve to work for the strengthening of the Confederation and mobilize the entirety of women employees in the future activities of the Confederation.

Grant of incentive for acquiring higher qualifications - Suggestions called for Inclusion of additional qualifications / Review of the qualifications



Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers (CCGEW) organized two days Study Camp on 15th & 16th November 2013 at CLI Auditorium, Central labour Institute, Sion, Mumbai. The Camp was inaugurated by Com. Tapan Sen, MP, and the General Secretary of CITU, New Delhi. The inaugural lecture by Com. Tapan Sen was on “Two decades of Globalisation policies and the Task of the Trade Unions”. Com. Tapan Sen narrated in detail about the impact of gloabalisation in the country in general and specifically on working class. In this era of globalisation regular workers are becoming minority and contract workers and casual workers became majority.  Hence, he called upon the entire work force to work for bringing change in policies of the Government and also change in the composition of the forces in the parliament so that there shall be enough strength in the parliament for progressive forces to take decisions in favour of working class. He concluded his presentation with a call to all to prepare their organization in such a manner so that the above message shall reach to everybody by motivating and convincing them on the issues and to prepare them mentally and physically to participate in campaign programme as well as in the agitational programme including strike for changing the neo-liberal economic policies and for bringing an alternative policy in its place.

Thereafter Com. Vivek Monterio, Secretary CITU Maharashtra State Committee spoke on the “impact of Globalisation in the Contracturisation”.  He opined that the issue of the contract labour system is no longer an incidental issue of the working class movement. Today it has become a core concern of the Indian trade union movement. Due to the government’s so called policy of ‘non recruitment’, the number of permanent workers is steadily decreasing. They are replaced by contract workers. While concluding his speech he appealed to all to work for the cause of the unorganized workers rising to the occasion. The time is ripe for our more active intervention on matters of labour and economic policy. We must use our influence on different political parties to prevent retrograde policies. We must conduct joint struggles at national level. We must move forward confidently to reassert, reaffirm and reestablish the relevance of our Constitution and its Directive Principles as a guide to our nation’s future.

Com. M.S. Raja Working President CCGEW presided over the pre lunch session.

Post-lunch session started with presentation by Com. S.K Vyas, Adviser CCGEW on “Joint Consultative Machinery & the Pay Commissions”.  In his presentation he elaborately explained the back ground of the introduction of Joint Consultative Machinery for bilateral discussion with the Government and its role in formation of service rules and facilities for Central Government Employees. He also narrated the history of all the pay commissions and the role played by the CCGEW. He made it clear that without organizing agitational programmes backing the demands, the JCM body will become an ineffective one.

The session was presided by Com. Giri Raj Singh Vice President CCGEW.

 After tea break Com. Ashok Dhawle, Secretary All India Kisan Sabha presented paper on the “Alternative Policy to the Present Crisis”. Com. Dhawle explained the crisis facing the world in general and our country in specific.  He projected the co-relation of political – economical – and class character of the ruling class and emphasized the need for change in the policies to overcome the crisis facing today.

Com. KKN Kutty, President CCGEW presided over the session. After the class by Com Ashok Dhawle the workshop adjourned for next day.

On 16th November 2013 the sessions started with the lecture by Dr. A Raghu Kumar, Advocate on the “Impact of Globalisation on Labour laws& Service Rules”. Dr. Raghukumar mentioned that  the present study attempts to understand the changing patterns of labour and service law jurisprudence in Indian courts, in three phases of India’s legal history i.e., from 1950-1975, 1975-1990 and 1991-2000.   These three periods show certain discernible patterns, and raises certain important questions on labour and service jurisprudence.  In the first phase (1950-1975) we find the expressions of Constitutional ‘socialism’, welfare-State ideas, beneficial or liberal constructions of law, reflecting the anti-colonial mood of nascent free-State, and its anxiety to get rid of ‘common law’ theories.   In the second phase (1975-1990), marked by more discussion about ‘socialism’ inserted into the Constitution by virtue of the 42nd Constitutional amendment, where we find in the judgments of the courts reverberating with the invocations of ‘socialist’ justice, giving pre-eminence status to ‘Directive Principles of State Policy’ over and above the idea of ‘Fundamental Rights’.   The third phase (1991- till date), has began with the introduction of the New Economic Policy of the Government in 1991, and internationalization of the Indian economy (Globalization, liberalization and privatization).He explained in detail all the three phases and opined that after 1990s the court has again tended to be in of favour of rich! He concluded his speech with a call to be beware of the situation and to react.

Com. Jayaraj. K.V, Assistant Secretary CCGEW presided over the session.

After the tea break Com. A.D. Golandaz, Vice President AITUC Maharashtra spoke on the subject of “Need of unity in TU movement in the Present scenario”. He elaborately explained the joint struggle in the recent past carried out in the country against the neo liberal policies and how it slow down the government attempt on implementing the policies under the dictates of IMF & World Bank. He called upon to all Central Government Employees to join in the united trade union movement.

Com. R.P Singh, Organising Secretary CCGEW presided  the session.

After lunch Com. K.K.N Kutty, President CCGEW presented paper on the “history of Central Government Employees movement”.  Com. Kutty explained the back ground of the formation of Confederation of Central Government Employees, situation prevailed immediately after the independence era, the approach of the Jawaharlal Nehru Government on central government employees & Workers, the State of affairs of Civil Service Unions in 1950s, the second pay commission and the strike in 60s, and one day strike in 1968 and bonus struggle during 70 & 80s, struggle in the era of globalization initiated by confederation. He focused the role of CCGEW in formulating the agenda for the struggle for Government Employees and opined that always the Confederation took lead for campaign, agitation and struggle on issues.

The concluding session started with the presentation of Com. M. Krishnan on “Building up of the organisation and future tasks”. Com. Krishnan emphasized the need of the militant organisation. He also said that to build an organisation it is necessary to strengthen the organisation ideologically and politically. To become such an organisation this type of workshop, seminar, etc are necessary and the leadership should actively take part in it, apart from the day-to-day activities of the organisation. He further said to work unitedly to achieve our task. He emphasized the need for bringing younger generation into the leadership of our organizations as otherwise we will be failing in our durty towards building up a vibrant and class-oriented militant organisation. Confederation of CG Employees & Workers already placed 15 points charter of demand and started campaign prgrammes and agitations right from 2011. Government was forced to declare 7th CPC. Credit goes to confederation. To carry forward the agitation, more and more unions and association should be brought under the banner of CCGEW. The inactive organizations should become functional. In various sectors we have to move further. The role of the CCGEW become important in the present scenario and we should take all steps to unite& strengthen the movement. Without fighting the policies of the Government which intends to dismantle the government sector and public sector, we cannot protect our hard earned benefits.

Com. P. M. Worlikar, President CCGEW Mumbai presided in the post lunch session.

The Camp was hosted by Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers Mumbai. The participants were the leaders of various Central Government Employees’ organizations. Eight lectures were organized during the two days camp in which more than 250 delegates representing about 45 organizations of 25 Ministries and Departments from various part of the country took part.
