Copy of the confederation Circular.No.12/2008


Conf/ D-11/12 /2008                                                                          Dated: 31st July, 2008 


Dear Comrade,


            We send herewith a copy of the letter addressed to the Cabinet Secretary dated 3rd August, 2008, which would be submitted on 4th August, 2008  This is the copy of the strike notice which the confederation would be serving on the Government on 4th August, 2008 as per the decision taken at the National convention held at New Delhi on 8th July, 2008. The charter of demands in pursuance of which we would be organizing the strike action is also enclosed to the above cited letter.  Kindly ensure that the similar strike notices are served on all Heads of Departments by the respective affiliated organizations.  The branches and units of the affiliates may kindly submit a copy of the respective strike notices with a covering letter to the Heads of offices for information and intimation.  Necessary instruction may kindly be issued in this regard to the branches. 


            As of writing this letter, we have no intimation of the Committee of Secretaries having finalized their report on the 6th CPC recommendations.  We also do not know whether another round of discussions would be held with the staff side once the COS finalizes their views. However, there is strong pressure being exerted on the Govt. not to release the arrears to the employees as it might further intensify the inflationary impact on the economy.


            As has been indicated in our last circular letter, the National Executive will have an emergent meeting as and when the Government makes its view on the 6th CPC recommendations known.


            Serious efforts may be undertaken to make the 20th August 08 strike a grand success.


            With greetings,

Yours fraternally,



Secretary General.
