Foundation stone ceremony of HMS HQ Building

12th January 2017

 

Hon’ble Prime Minister of India

South Block,

New Delhi

 

Sub:   Demanding immediate withdrawal of the Labour Ministry order withholding participation of INTUC from various international and national Tripartite and Bipartite Committee

 

Dear Sir,

 

The Central Trade Unions are shocked to note the arbitrary order of the Labour Ministry of Government of India denying representation to the Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC), one of the biggest Central Trade Union Organistions in the country, in all tripartite and bipartite committees. This is being done on the pretext of pendency of dispute in Court, that too only in coal industry between the different groups of the organization. It is highly ridiculous to include ILO, of which INTUC leader is a duly elected member of its Governing Body from the International Labour Conference, in the list of the said committees.

 

This order of the Ministry of Labour, government of India is totally arbitrary, authoritarian and vindictive and is nothing but politically motivated. It is clear indication of the government’s intention to dilute the unity of the trade union movement, of which INTUC is a part, to facilitate implementation of anti worker anti people policies.

 

The Central Trade Unions strongly condemn and vehemently protest against this move. We also assert that the trade union movement of the country will not accept such vindictive and politically motivated orders lying down and demand that this order be withdrawn with immediate effect.

 

 

Thanking you,

Yours sincerely,

Against Demonetisation Onslaught on People –Job loss, wage loss and crop loss

CENTRAL TRADE UNIONS CALL FOR COUNTRYWIDE AGITATION ON 28TH JANUARY

The Central Trade Union Organisations (CTUOs) in the joint meeting held on 11th January 2017 at INTUC Office at New Delhi reiterated their serious concern at the hardships and miseries imposed on the workers, particularly in the unorganised sector, farmers, agricultural labourers and rural poor, on small traders and street vendors, etc by the Modi led BJP government at the centre due to the demonetisation. The CTUOs took note of the ongoing spontaneous protests by various trade unions throughout the country against the miseries inflicted upon the workers, farmers, self-employed and small business by demonetisation process and stressed upon the need for carrying on the same initiative as a part of their united struggle against the anti-workers, anti-people authoritarian policies of the Govt..  

Reports have been pouring in from all over the country, during the last two months, about closures of thousands of small and medium enterprises, lakhs of workers, particularly the migrant workers losing their jobs. Lakhs of migrant workers employed in construction, brick kiln, textile and garments, jewellery, leather, sports goods etc have lost their work. According to a recent study by the All India Manufacturers’ Organisation, in the first 34 days since demonetisation, micro small scale industries suffered 35% job losses and a 50% dip in their revenues. It is also projected 60% drop in employment and 55% loss in revenue by March 2017. There is large scale reverse migration to the rural areas. More than 100 people have died due the demonetisation onslaught and its impact on the people. 

This exercise has resulted in the ruin of micro and small industries. It will further increase the already wide income inequalities. It is only intended to help finance capital by sucking in people’s money into the banks for their recapitalisation so that they can provide cheap credit to the big corporate and business houses. 

None of the objectives of this demonetisation, outlined by the government, - unearthing black money, curtailing corruption, stopping funds to terrorist activities and preventing counterfeiting – have been fulfilled calling a bluff on the loud noises made by the Govt through media. There was no attempt to bring back the huge amount of black money stashed in foreign countries despite the Govt having the list of those big black money holders. Counterfeit money in the form of the new Rs 2000 notes are already being printed and brought into circulation. While old avenues of corruption continue unabated, new avenues have been opened in the form of exchanging old withdrawn notes for new notes. 

The Govt is refusing to take concrete action of even recovering black-money in domestic soil being generated by huge direct tax-default to the tune of Rs 5 lakh crore every year, speculation in the commodity market, under-invoicing and over-invoicing in foreign and domestic trade by the big traders, deliberate default of bank-loans etc. Poor unorganised workers having no bank accounts are being robbed of their meagre earnings by unscrupulous commission agents. Farmers are being compelled make distress sale of their produce, both grains and vegetables. The Nagrota terrorist attack clearly establishes the failure of this exercise in stopping terrorist funding and terrorist attacks. Now the government shifted the narrative to converting the country into cashless economy and digital economy, which is nothing but impossible at this juncture given the huge unbanked areas in rural India. . In fact as the facts revealed by RBI and various other agencies, the demonetisation has resulted in making the black-money white and legitimising the counterfeit currency made clear by the data of demonetised currency received by the banking system to the tune of more than 98 per cent by the end of December 2016. 

Instead of taking measures to mitigate the sufferings of the workers the government is branding those who voice their sufferings as black money holders, corrupt and anti national. This is nothing but a clear exhibition of authoritarian tendencies by the government and the BJP leaders.

The Central Trade Unions seriously condemning this authoritarian attitude of the government  call upon the working people to organise state capital and  district level joint demonstrations all over the country on 28th January 2017 demanding that the government compensate the toiling people for the job losses, wage losses, crop losses and loss of livelihood.
