NCCPA is happy to announce a webinar on 8th August, 2021 on the following subject.
TUI as a Unifier of World Pensioners
Trade Union International is an integral part of the World Federation of Trade Unions. WFTU is the world body of trade union and is the platform to unite the working class of the world. In the present world scenario all of you are aware that most of the countries have adopted the capitalist path of growth and development. It is inherent in the system that the development is possible only for a small segment of the society at the cost of the majority of the working people. It is based upon the principle to transfer the wealth from the poor to the rich. Since exploitation is the hall mark of the system, concerted attempt would be made continuously to reduce the wages of the workers in order to maximise the profit of the entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs of the world have an unwritten understanding in the matter and the exploitative methods differ from society to society depending upon the concrete conditions obtaining at each place or region as the case may be. While in many of the advanced and developed countries have a social security system to take care of the old age needs of the citizens the cost of which is partly borne by the employer class, it is mostly absent in most of the developing and under developed countries. In our country, we do not have any state funded or employer funded social security system and wherever such funds are created, its nucleus is from the contribution of the workers or to a small extent from the exchequer. The need for organising the pensioners of the world arose to combat the situation of exploitation of the old people at the evening of their life.
In the present webinar, we shall come to know the efforts undertaken by WFTU to unite the pensioners and retired personnel throughout the world; to share the experience of different society in the natter and draw united efforts from such experiences. Comrade K. Ragavendran, our Deputy Secretary General is the TUI co-ordinator for the Asia region. He would present the discussion paper and initiate discussion at the webinar. The webinar is organised as a prologue to the World Elders Day which falls on 1st October, 2021 and the Indian Pensioners day on 17th December, 2021. During the webinar itself, the participants may rise through “chats” questions on the subject so that it could be replied once the subject is introduced.
Kindly remember that the webinar would be held on Zoom platform on 8th August, 2021 from 4.00 PM onwards and would be simultaneously broad-cost through Aiprpa Chq Face Book page and later in the channel of Aiprpa Chq in YouTube.
