For Equal Rights; Equal Opportunities for all working women
Under the right wing regime of the Modi led NDA government in the country attacks on the basic and fundamental rights of all sections including minorities, dalits, women etc. have increased. BJP ruled states like Haryana and Rajasthan are even denying the right to contest in panchayat elections on the basis of literacy, number of children and indebtedness etc. People are increasingly being attacked for not conforming to the dictates of these communal forces on their eating, dressing and other personal choices. All these are meant to deny the constitutionally guaranteed rights of equal rights and equal opportunities to all citizens of the country irrespective of their gender, caste or creed.
All state committees of Confederation and its affiliated organisations must highlight all these aspects and issues related to ‘Equal Rights and Equal Opportunities’ for women workers on this occasion. All are requested to link these up with the neoliberal policies being implemented by successive governments and the communal divisive ideology.
All State committees, District committees and affiliated organisations are requested to take proper organisational measures to ensure effective observance of International Women’s Day, wherever possible, jointly with the state coordination committees of working women. Efforts should be made for joint activities with fraternal organisations including the women’s subcommittees of fraternal trade union organisations in the planning and observance of the International Women’s Day in a befitting manner.

CENTRAL TRADE UNIONS DECIDE TO CONTINUE ACTION AGAINST CENTRAL AND STATE GOVTS. ANTI-LABOUR POLICIES
All India Protest Day on 10th March, 2016 on 12 point charter
New Delhi: All the Central Trade Unions met on 27th January 2016 and resolved to continue their protest action against the anti labour policies of the Central and some State Govts. Central Trade Unions decided to observe 10th March, 2016 as All India Protest Day against Govt.indifference to the 12 point charter of demands and its unwillingness to restart discussions for working out concrete steps for resolution of the issues.
The Central Trade Unions reviewed the drastically deterioratingconditions of work and life of the working people and govt. going ahead with labour law amendments, disinvestment of PSUs and allowing FDI in strategic sectors. The Govt., it appears, does not want to wait for legislating these anti worker labour law amendments, it is taking away rights of workers by way of executive orders and directing state govts to carry out such pro-management amendments. The trade unions condemned one such directive issued by the Secretary, Ministry of Labour and Employment, Govt. of India on this 12th January granting exemption to so called start up enterprises from inspection and application of 9 major labor law legislations, thereby legitimizing the violations.
The Central Trade Unions took note of and extend solidarity to the sectoral struggles of workers/employees in Banks, Defence, Coal, Port and Docks and Telecommunications sectors, the anganwadi workers on their respective demands and also the Central Govt. employees including Railways resolve to launch action against retrograde recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission. They also expressed their serious concern over extremely harsh punishment of “double life imprisonment” given by the Court to eight workers of Pricol Ltd., Coimbatore and appealed to all workers to extend help and solidarity.
The Central Trade Unions also decided to organize massive National Convention of Workers in Talkatora Stadium, New Delhi in the last week of March, 2016 to decide about the next course of united action programme.
Fight against anti labour policies will continue. The Central Trade Unions directed its constituents to prepare jointly for protest action on 10th March, 2016. They also appealed to independent employees/workers/unions and federations to participate in the protest action against the offensive of the Govt. against workers and common people.
