Constituting the 8th CPC, restoring OPS, releasing the pending/ impounded DA/DR for the eighteen months, and other demands: The Confederation is escalating a phased agitation that will conclude in a mega-rally on November 3rd, 2023.
The Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers is expanding their phased agitation in favour of seven demands as a team with the All India State Government Employees Federation. This includes a big rally in New Delhi on November 3, 2023, with the goal of breaking attendance records. The New Pension Scheme must be revoked, contract workers must be regularised, and privatisation must be halted. Each affiliate has a participation quota, and leaders encourage participants to exceed prior turnout. Affiliates’ financial contributions are critical. The rally represents employee unity and desire to achieve their goals, perhaps altering the Indian labour environment.

All the affiliates of Confederation have the daunting task of rising up to the occassion. and their leadership should leave no stone unturned to reach out to each and every member explain them the demands and circumstances under which we are agitating, mobilize the rank and file, for participating en mass in the 3rd November 23 rally and make it a grand Success .It should be ensured that participation of member’s from the Confederation must be more than, that was in the previous rally of 10th August . respective organisations must do their level best to fulfill the quota allotted to them .
State COCs of Delhi and adjoining state’s have to play a major role in mobilizing the rank and file and bringing them for the Rally, as compared to the other states, wherein it would be difficult to bring members in large numbers, owing to various reasons .
Remittance of Quota :: As stated in previous circulars , it is again reiterated that the financial position of the Confederation is very weak , and without fund’s no movement or organisation can be effectively run , huge expenses would be incurred on the proposed program of rally and other activities of the Confederation . General Secretaries of ail the State COCs/All affiliates of the Confederation, are once again requested to kindly remit their “Due quota” of previous year’s,if not paid and the quota for the year of 2023 latest by the 20th October , so that functioning of the organisation could be carried out smoothly and in better way
