SEPTEMPER 2, 2016 GENERAL STRIKE – SUPPORT AND CONDUCT SOLIDARITY PROGRAM.

Dear Comrades,

The working class in the country under the auspices of the central trade unions and independent federations are all set to launch another showdown on 2 September, 2016 against the anti-people and anti-worker policies of the central government. The demands put forward by the central trade unions are nothing new but the same for the strike conducted on 2nd September, 2015, including stringent measures to control the price rise, strict enforcement of labour laws, no disinvestment of PSUs, minimum wage of Rs.15,000 and pension for all.

The independent federations including Confederation and BSNLEU,  while endorsing the demands of the central trade unions have included their important demands also.

AIBDPA, as per its declared policy, stands committed to support this countrywide general strike as in the past.

Therefore, as intimated earlier, all AIBDPA units are requested to extend wholehearted support to the strike and also organize solidarity programs wherever possible jointly with other pensioners organisations or independently. 

The strike is going to be the biggest in the history of our country and a turning point for the working class in their onward march. So, Comrades, let us be proud to be part of this uprising of the workers and the toiling masses. The absolute victory shall be of the workers and the people.
