NJCA claims the ‘all-India protest day’ as 'completely successful'

The ‘all-India protest day’ called by the National Joint Council of Action (NJAC) was observed across the country. The protest day was organized to press upon the Union Government of India to settle a 10-point charter of demands, which includes enhancement of minimum pay, scrapping of new pension scheme, immediate implementation of assurance given by a group of central ministers in 2016 to NJCA leaders on various demands relating to the 7th Central Pay Commission, etc.

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) earlier warned severe consequences and appropriate disciplinary action against the employees participating in the protest. n an order dated September 18, the DoPT directed all central government employees to abstain from participating in any form of strike, warning that doing so would be a violation of Rule 7 of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964. The DoPT even called all officers directing them not to approve any kind of leave to their subordinate during the period of the proposed protest.

According to the NCJA, the unions has postponed the strike in 2016 after the assurance was given by Jaitley that minimum pay and fitment formula would be hiked beyond the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations. However, despite promises, it has been over two years and government hasn’t acted on this matter, they alleged.

The organisation said the protest would continue at different levels throughout September since there was no call from the government to discuss its demands.

As part of the mission, the NCJA will stage demonstration in front of Parliament in December to create pressure on the government before the general elections
