CONFEDERATION CIRCULAR NO.23 DATED 14th DECEMBER-2010
We write this in continuation of our circular letter No. 22 dated.6th December, 2010 wherein we had conveyed the decisions taken at the National Council meeting held at Mumbai on 1st December, 2010. The Central Trade Unions had convened a meeting of all federations on 8th December, 2010 at NRMU office at New Delhi. Since the undersigned had been out of Delhi, we could not participate in the said meeting. The meeting had discussed of the need to make the Workers march to Parliament programme slated for 23rd Feb. 2011 a grand success by eliciting the participation of large number of employees and workers. As you are aware we had discussed the issue in our last National Council meeting and had taken the decision to mobilise large number of Government employees in the march.
In order to ensure that the CGEs from various states do participate in this important event, it would be better that the State Committees take steps immediately in the matter. In the annexure to this letter we have indicated minimum number of comrades, each State Committee to deploy in this programme. While it should be the endeavour of the neighbouring States to mobilise larger number of employees, the far off State Committees are requested to meet and identify the comrades and book their to and fro passage and indicate to the CHQ as to whether any arrangements must be made for their stay etc. At Delhi. Unless the number is indicated it would be difficult to book accommodation for stay at Delhi. The comrades who are deployed to participate in the programme from far off States are requested to please reach Delhi latest by 22nd night as the trains are likely to be delayed on 23rd Feb. 2011. The neighbouring States may kindly arrange buses to carry the comrades to Delhi and back. They are also requested to make these arrangements as early as possible and intimate us so that we can make arrangements for parking of these vehicles as large number of vehicles is likely to be reaching Delhi on that day carrying comrades to participate in the programme. As and when we receive any other details from the sponsoring committee of this programme we shall intimate the same to you.
(Minimum Number of comrades to be deployed by each State. The number is determined taking into account the distance and the number of employees working in each State. All State committees are requested to kindly ensure that the minimum indicated is adhered to.)
