7th CPC: CGA warns employees against going on strike

Employees are opposing several of the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations

The Controller General of Accounts (CGA) has warned its employees that proceeding on strike could lead to wage cuts or even dismissal. This, after the All India Civil Accounts Employees Association and the All India Association of Pay and Accounts officers joined the call for an indefinite strike from July 11 in protest against several recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission.

The strike call, issued by the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) representing trade unions of railway, defence, postaland other central government employees, is to protest against the computation of minimum wage as recommended by the Seventh Pay Commission, which is to be implemented this year. “There is no statutory provision empowering the employees to go on strike,” the circular issued by the CGA, in possession of The Hindu, said.
“The Supreme Court (in a previous case) also agreed that going on strike is a grave misconduct under the Conduct Rules and that misconduct by government employees is required to be dealt with in accordance with the law.”
The strike was supposed to have begun on April 11, but was postponed to July 11.
