The Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers (CCGEW), Pune, has decided to protest against the report of the 6th Pay Commission as submitted by Justice Shrikrishna to the Government.
The issue will be discussed in the meeting of confederation's Pune branch to hold demonstration at District Collector's office on April 17 from 4.00 pm to 6.00 pm.
The protestors would be protesting against the adhoc and PLB bonus, which will be replaced by performance related incentive scheme; the women employees will be provided with staggering working hours, special leave for child care, maternity leave up to 180 days, increased working facilities like working women hostels etc.
Other areas, which have invited the attention of the protestors are the proposed rate of increment ie 25 per cent may bring about a dip in the quantum of the pre-revised increment in certain cases.
The demand for increment at 5 per cent of pay stands revised.
The increment in all cases will be effective from July 1. The government has been given the discretion to do away with the grade pay even in individual cases as part of introduction of performance related pay scheme.
The minimum wage/salary is fixed at Rs 5,740 and not at 6,600. The CCA is subsumed in the transport allowance and the transport allowance is increased by 4 times.
Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) is replaced by medi-insurance.
The number of closed holidays has been reduced to three and restricted holidays have been increased to 8.
The commission also recommended abolition of Group D posts, which means elimination of 12 lakh posts in the central government services.
The sixth pay commission’s recommendation on wage/salary rise is grossly discriminatory against the employees category vis-à-vis the high level officer.
A large number of protestors from different walks of life are expected to participate in the protest. Source
