KKN Kutty, national president of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, today said the employees of the Central government would stage a demonstration from June 9 onwards in case the “shortcomings in the seventh pay commission recommendations” were not rectified.

Kutty, while talking to mediapersons on the sidelines of the All India Trade Union Education Camp 2016 in Dehradun, said the seventh pay commission had recommended Rs 18,000 per month as minimum wage whereas it should be Rs 26,000 per month. “Thirty five to 40 per cent positions are vacant in the Central government departments which must be filled at the earliest,” he said while criticising the government for its outsourcing policy.

“Several issues are there which should be resolved. We have asked the Centre to hold talks with us before June 9, otherwise we will be forced to launch an agitation,” he said. He said it was wrong to link government employees with corruption. “It is in society and there should be a mechanism to check it,” he asserted.

Earlier, while addressing the All India Trade Union Education Camp 2016, Kutty called upon the Central government employees to work unitedly towards ensuring justice for them.

Another speaker, Venkatesh Ramakrishnan, said the liberalisation policies followed by the rise of communalism in the country had adversely affected the working class. He said the Central government employees were facing challenging times as they were being neglected.
