As you are aware that, in the “National Convention” of the Central Trade Unions, held on 15th September, 2014 in the Constitution Club, New Delhi, it was unanimously decided to observe “National Protest Day” on 5th December, 2014 by holding demonstrations, dharnas, rallies etc. across the country to mount pressure on the Government of India against anti-workers and anti-labout policies of the government, viz. skyrocketing price hike, unemployment, privatization/outsourcing, disinvestment in the PSUs, unlawful contractorisation, amendment in Labour Laws, FDI in the Railways, Defence and Insurance Sectors, National Pension Scheme(NPS), etc. etc.
Subsequently, the 90th Annual Convention of the All India Railwaymen’s Federation, held in Hubli from 18¬20 November, 2015, had decided to fully support the decision of the aforementioned National Convention of the Central Trade Unions.
