Press Statement
for favour of publication dated 8 Jan. 2009
The National Confederation of Officers’ Associations’ of Central Public Sector Undertakings strongly condemns the repressive measures adopted by the Government of India against the striking Officers serving of the Oil Sector.

It is a shame that instead of resolving the issues the Government is resorting to strong arm tactics. If the Government continues with such measures, the National Confederation will be compelled to call for a larger strike in the Public Sector.

The Government in violation of all international labour standards denies the right to collective bargaining to the Officer of the Central Public Sector Undertakings. The Government appointed a high powered committee headed by a retired Judge of the Hon’ble Supreme Court and then arbitrarily opted to unilaterally modify the recommendations of the committee. The National Confederation proposes to file a complaint with the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

The National Confederation demands that the Government
v Immediate resolve the issues raised by the Officers of the Oil Sector
v Withdraw Punitive Action against the Officers
v Ensure that the recommendations made by the Justice Rao Committee are not diluted.
