Circular No.2/2012-15 Dated 28th February, 2012
We have been able to get the reports of the strike participation from all our circles today. In all the states the strike was 100 percent success. The reports received by the Circle General Secretaries from the branches were collated, and we are proud to inform that in many stations even top officials either did not come to office or preferred to return after seeing the total strike by the employees. Invariably in all places the Casual/contract workers and contingent paid employees either remain absent or joined the striking employees making virtual closure of Income Tax Offices throughout the country.
The strike call given by the Central Trade Unions evoked mammoth response throughout the country and paralysed life in many states. The Central Government Employees under the banner of Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers responded admirably to the call for strike. A Press note released by the Confederation of CG Employees and Workers is enclosed.
We once again congratulate the leaders of the Circles for the great efforts undertaken by them especially when they could reach back only on 27th just a day prior to the strike from Mehsana after attending the All India Delegates Conference. The massive preparation made by them before the conference and the efforts taken by the branch/unit level leaders to keep the tempo upbeat in the absence of their leaders for a week prior to the strike, has resulted in the massive participation of all employees and making the strike a grand success.
With Red Salute,
CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES AND WORKERS

Date: 28th February 2012
The General Strike of Indian working class for which the call was given by the Central Trade Unions and endorsed by all the Federations and the Central and State Govt. Employees elicited the largest participation today. The increased participation of workers in the industrial action was indicative of the growing realization of the need to struggle against the present economic policies of the Govt. of India.
The Central Govt. employees throughout the country responded to the call admirably in as much as the strike was almost total in Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura, Manipur and about 80% in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, and partial in Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Arunachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Orissa and Gujarat.
The strike was no doubt an impressive reflection of the total discontent of the employees over the various policy decisions like scrapping of the existing pension scheme, outsourcing, contractorisation and privatisation which have threatened the job security. The increasing prices of essential commodities had added to the agony and despite periodical wage increase through the system of Dearness Compensation, the employees found it difficult to make the both ends meet with the existing emoluments.
The Confederation National Secretariat while congratulating the Central Govt. Employees in general for the total co-operation in making the strike action a grand success, particularly place on record the exemplary and magnificent achievement of Income Tax Employees Federation and All India Central Ground Water Board Employees Association, who could make cent percent of their members to participate in the strike.
We once again call upon the affiliates to go ahead with the preparation of the next strike action in pursuance of the 14-point Charter of Demands which are of exclusive concern to Central Government Employees.

The scams involving billions of rupees stashed in foreign banks by a few individuals were fecilitated by these policies. If the country could withstand the havoc created by the world economic recession of 2008-09 it was due to the presence of strong Public Sector Undertaking and the firm stand and resistance put forth by the working class against the privatization process of these PUCs.
