The Confederation of Central Government Employees stated that the 7th Central Pay Commission implementation in current form is “not acceptable” in view of the prevailing economic conditions. It has also threatened to advance by a week an indefinite strike to press their demand for revising the hike.
“In the prevailing economic conditions, the proposed hike as per the Pay Commission is inadequate. It is not acceptable to us,” M Duraipandian, General Secretary, Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, Tamil Nadu, said.
“If the government does not heed our demand (on revising the hike), we will be forced to advance the indefinite strike call to July 4 instead of July 11,” he told reporters.
