10 unions stick to plan for 1-day nation-wide strike on Sept 2
Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi  August 19, 2016
 As many as 10 central trade unions have decided to go ahead with their call for a 1-day pan-India strike on September 2, with no positive response from the government on their 12-point charter of demand.

"The 10 central trade unions have decided to go on strike on September 2, 2016, in a meeting of the coordination committee held yesterday," All India Trade Union Congress Secretary D L Sachdev said.


"The mandatory 2-week notice in the case of essential services like transport and power has already been served by the local units of our unions earlier this week. We are expecting over 10 crore people to participate in the strike."

The exclusive meeting between Jaitley-led ministerial panel and BMS representatives to discuss its demand remained "inconclusive" earlier this week on August 16. The other trade unions were not called for the meeting.

It was the first meeting of the ministerial panel with a central trade union over the 12-point charter of demands in almost a year. It had met trade unions on August 26-27, 2015.

"We have decided to go on strike on September 2, 2016. We have been called for another round of meeting with the group of ministers. If something positive happens, then we will see (decide otherwise)," BMS General Secretary Virjesh Upadhyay told PTI.

Last year, BMS had opted out of strike on September 2, 2015, in view of the government's positive assurances on the basic demands.

The joint declaration by the 10 central trade unions issued after yesterday's meeting stated, "It is unfortunate that during the past one year, the group of ministers appointed for discussion with CTUOs (unions) on 12-point charter has not convened a single meeting, but has been only talking to BMS which has not joined the strike call."

It added: "The CTOUs condemn the move of the central government to divide the workers in the face of ongoing strike campaign and create confusion through making misleading statements...
