Stop Robbing Savings of Common People: CITU

THE Centre of Indian Trade Unions(CITU), in a statement issued on April 1, condemned the hasty move of the central government in announcing a sharp reduction in all small savings instruments including Public Provident Fund (PPF), Kisan Vikas Patra and other term deposits through a notification. CITU also noted the hurried announcement, later by the finance ministry saying that such announcement on interest rate cut has been done by mistake ‘due to oversight’ with a clear intent to avoid criticism in the run-up to assembly elections.

THE Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU), in a statement issued on January 27, has congratulated the farmers of our country and their united platform for the massive kisan parade on the Republic Day both at the national capital and in hundreds of districts across the country to defend our country’s self reliance, food and energy security and the rights enshrined in our constitution.

CTUs Rejects Govt Move to Frame Rules on Labour Codes

THE joint platform of central trade unions(CTU) have outrightly rejected the move of the government to frame rules on the labour codes which were passed in the Parliament without any discussion with the central trade unions or in the Parliament when all the opposition members of Parliament were absent as they were on boycott demanding the withdrawal of expulsion of some MPs.

CITU for Intensifying the Class Struggles to push back Corporate Regime

“THIS struggle by the working class against the anti-worker Labour Codes and anti-national privatisation will complement the struggle of the peasants against the anti-farmers, Farm Acts and the Electricity (Amendment) Bill 2020. These simultaneous fronts of struggles, by the peasants and workers, alone, can push back the pro-corporate neoliberal regime. Thus, it is of utmost importance for the working class to intensify the struggles on its specific demands along with the demand to repeal the Farm Acts”.

Demand to Repeal Labour Codes Grows Louder

A “NATIONAL PROTEST DAY” was observed at multiple workplaces across the country on December 30, primarily to say that the “working class will not let the peasantry fail.”

The protest day, called for by the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU), saw demonstrations by workers – both, organised and unorganised – employed in various sectors at their places of employment. Public meetings and rallies were organised as part of the programme as well.

On Social Security Code Draft Rules

THE union ministry of labour and employment released draft rules for the Code on Social Security, 2020 on November 13 “for information of all persons likely to be affected thereby”, unscrupulously avoiding the route of tripartite consultation with the stakeholders, the trade unions in particular. The Modi government has been working overtime to roll out labour law codification at the earliest so as to show its hyper-loyalty to the corporates.
