Two days strike by Central Govt. Employees along with other sections of Working class.

The Income Tax Employees all over the country will be going 2 days strike action on 20th & 21st February, 2013, as per the call given by the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers. The strike is in pursuance of the 15-point charter of demands formulated by the Confederation and also in support of the common issues as per the Charter of demands submitted by the joint trade union movement of the country.
This historic 2-days strike action is going to be the biggest ever strike action of the Indian working class on the common issues arising out of the neo-liberal economic policies  being pursued by the UPA-II Govt. which has resulted in sky rocketing prices of essential commodities and withdrawl of subsidies provided to the poor and common man of this country. The Workers are being exploited in the name of contractorisation, privatisation and outsourcing. The Pension is being privatised with the introduction of new Pension scheme and allowing FDI in Pension. In such a situation the workers are left with no other alternative but to go on a united struggle to oppose these anti-people policies. We call upon all our members to ensure that the strike slated for 20th & 21st February, 2013 is made a total success.
