Support to strike
GUWAHATI, Sep 1 - The All India Central Council of Trade Unions (AICCTU) has extended its support to the nationwide general strike called on September 2 by trade unions and employees' organisations.
Ten unions on strike tomorrow; Govt expects minimal impact
Essential services like banking and public transport may be impacted tomorrow with ten central trade unions going ahead with their one-day nationwide strike, even as the government appealed to them for calling off the agitation, which BJP-backed BMS and NFITU decided to boycott. While these ten unions claim to have a combined membership of 15 crore workers in public and private sector, including banks and insurance companies, several outfits representing informal sector workers also today announced their support to the strike. Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya, however, said he expects the impact to be minimal. "I dont think essential services will be affected by the strike. I feel that the impact will not be much. I appeal them to call off strike in the interest of workers and nation," Dattatreya told reporters here. The union leaders, however, said the strike will affect the functioning of essential services like banking, transport and supply of power, gas and oil. Countering this claim, Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) said that power, oil and gas supplies will not be affected as a large number of public sector workers in these areas would not participate in the industrial action. As many as 12 central trade unions had given this strike call over a 12-points charter of demands, including withdrawal of the proposed changes in the labour laws and stopping the disinvestment and privatisation of PSUs. While as many as ten central unions have decided to go ahead with the strike after their talks with a group of senior ministers last week failed to yield desired results, the BMS pulled out saying the government needed to be given time to fulfill its promises on the basic demands. The National Front of Indian Trade Unions (NFITU) will also stay out. The government also indicated that the talks with trade unions will continue even if they go on the strike tomorrow. On impact of the strike, Dattatreya said, "The BMS and NFITU are not in the strike. Besides there are 2-4 organisations (unions) which are neutral." He did not reveal the names of the neutral trade unions. He further said, "We dont want any confrontation with trade unions. The workers rights and interests are supreme to us. We will continue talks with trade unions even after tomorrows strike." Meanwhile, various outfits for informal sector workers, under the banner of Working Peoples Charter, appealed to BMS to rethink on its decision to withdraw its support to the strike at the eleventh hour. Speaking on behalf of the ten strike-bound central trade unions, All India Trade Union Secretary D L Sachdev said that all ten central trade unions recognised by the government will go on strike tomorrow. He also claimed that "many state units of BMS will also join the strike". Earlier in the day, BMS General Secretary Virjesh Upadhyay told reporters that "a large number of public sector undertakings who are members of central trade unions are not going on strike tomorrow. "Thus, services like power, oil and gas supply will not be affected. Big PSUs like NTPC, NHPC and PowerGrid will not observe strike tomorrow. Therefore, the power supply will not be affected". Upadhyay said the National Front of Indian Trade Unions has also decided not to go on strike and wants to give some time to the government, at least till the Winter Session of Parliament, for fulfilling its assurances like uniform minimum wages across the board and enhancing wage ceiling for bonus. "The strike will be observed in all organisations which are associated with the trade unions. These include roadways, power, textile mills, cement factories, auto-rickshaws and others," said Guman Singh, state (Rajasthan) president of INTUC. BMS linked roadways, power and other departments trade unions would not go on strike tomorrow, and over 80,000 employees would go on their job in Rajasthan, its Executive President R B Sharma said in a press conference in Jaipur. "The impact of the BMS pull out will be minimal on strike on September 2. The decision of the BMS is political," All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) General Secretary Gurudas Dasgupta had told reporters yesterday. Dasgupta had said that informal sector workers like rickshaw pullers and landless farm labourers will also participate in the strike. The employees of state transport undertakings and coal workers will also participate in the nationwide strike tomorrow to pitch for their agenda that includes opposition to the Road Transport and Safety Bill in its present form and further stake sale in Coal India. As per the membership claims filed by the central trade unions, there are over 13 crore members of the government recognised 12 central trade unions. India has a workforce of 50 crore people, of which over 80 per cent is in the unorganised sector. Workers unions in Punjab and Chandigarh have decided to join the nationwide strike call given by central trade unions. Banking services are also likely to be affected with bank employees also announcing to observe strike tomorrow. "As many as 3 lakh employees working in various departments in Haryana will join the strike call tomorrow," said Subhash Lamba, General Secretary, Haryana Sarv Karamchari Sangh. Employees of departments which will be participating in the protest include transport, power, education, HUDA, health, irrigation, market committees, universities, he added. Lamba said employees will be on strike, demanding minimum wages of Rs 15,000 per month, abolition of contractual system for hiring, non-implementation of anti-labour laws, 7th Pay Commission from January 2016 and reining in inflation. Haryana Roadways employees have also decided to go on strike tomorrow. "There will be a complete Chakka Jam tomorrow as 20,000 employees of transport department will be on strike. Around 4,000 buses will not ply on any route in Haryana," said Sarbat Punia, representative of Haryana Roadways Employees Union. In Punjab, employees of state-owned Punjab State Power Corporation Limited have also planned to participate in the strike. However, an official of PSPCL said duties of officers have been fixed in order to ensure that no disruption in power generation and distribution takes place in Punjab because of the strike. Besides, employees of Chandigarhs transport and electricity departments will observe strike tomorrow. However, Chandigarh administration has said that principle of no work no pay will be strictly enforced in the city and warned of taking disciplinary action. Banking transactions are also likely to be adversely affected as bank employees of public sector banks, excluding SBI, will also participate in the strike. Bank unions such as AIBEA, AIBOA, BEFI, INBOC, NOBW, INBEF and NOBO will be participating in the strike, said Naresh Gaur, Secretary, Punjab Bank Employees Federation

Normal working at banks was affected today due to a nationwide strike called by 10 central trade unions, although the staff of SBI, IOB, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank and Axis Bank stayed away from the agitation. "23 public sector banks, 12 private sector banks, 52 regional rural banks and over 13,000 cooperative banks have gone on strike today to protest against government's pro- corporate policies," All India Bank Employees Association General Secretary C H Venkatachalam told PTI. He said that over half of the 10 lakh banking sector workers are supporting the strike call given by 10 central trade unions as their talks with the government on 12-points charter of demand failed last month. Venkatachalam further said that among public sector banks State Bank of India and Indian Overseas Bank have not joined the strike whereas in private sector ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, Axis Bank and Yes Bank did not join the day-long strike. He said that Yes Bank did not join the strike because there is no trade union there. While clearing business was affected across the country, banks have fully stocked the ATM machines. Among the private sector banks which joined the stir include Federal Bank, Karnataka Bank, Karur Vysya Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Catholic Syrian Bank, Dhanlaxmi Bank and Ratnakar Bank. Venkatachalam said that banking sector has joined the stir to protest against central government's anti-labour and pro-corporate policies. The government had yesterday appealed to the trade unions to call off the agitation in the interest of workers and the nation. The unions however decided to go ahead with the strike as their talks with a ministerial panel headed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley last month did not make any headway on their 12-point charter of demands. Trade unions' 12-point charter of demands includes urgent measures to rein in price rise, contain unemployment, strictly enforce basic labour laws, provide universal social security cover for all workers and minimum wage of Rs 15,000 per month. They are also demanding higher pensions, stoppage of disinvestment in PSUs, ending contractorisation, removal of ceiling on bonus and provident fund, compulsory registration of trade unions within 45 days, no amendment to labour laws unilaterally, stopping of FDI in Railways and Defence.

Ishant, Pujara enter top-20 in ICC Test rankings

Pujara powers into top 20, Kohli falls in ICC Test rankings
India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara has jostled into the top 20 of the International Cricket Council (ICC) rankings for the first time following his man of the match performance in the third Test against Sri Lanka. India beat Sri Lanka by 117 runs in the third Test which concluded in Colombo on Tuesday to clinch the series 2-1. Pujara played a crucial role in the victory as his unbeaten knock of 145 runs was the cornerstone of Indias first innings score of 312. It was the seventh Test century of Pujaras career. The 27-year-old has jumped up four places, and is now in the 20th position. Even though Pujara has made the climb, Indias Test captain Virat Kohli has dropped a place and is now in the 11th spot. It leaves the fifth-ranked Indian team with no batsman inside the top 10. Apart from Pujara, there were a few other middle-order batsmen who made significant contributions to Indias cause at the Sinhalese Sports Club ground, which, in turn, have helped them to head upwards in the table. Rohit Sharma has moved up two places to 48th, Ravichandran Ashwin has gained five places and is now 50th, while Amit Mishra, who scored 59 in the first innings and featured in a 104-run eighth wicket partnership with Pujara, has vaulted 56 places to 91st. It was a disappointing Test for the Sri Lankan batsmen. However, skipper Angelo Mathews has retained his fifth rank following his seventh career century (110 in the second innings). He is now 11 points behind fourth-ranked batsman and South Africa captain Hashim Amla. Meanwhile, there were no changes to the top 10 in the list for Test bowlers. However, there were improvements for Indian pacer Ishant Sharma, who reached the 200-wicket mark after claiming match figures of 8/86. As a result, he has moved up three places to 18th. Leg-spinner Amit Mishras 3/72 has helped him climb two spots to a career high 37th. Fast bowler Umesh Yadav too has improved upon his ranking and is currently at 42nd. Sri Lanka trio of Dhammika Prasad (up three places to 22nd), Nuwan Pradeep (up 12 to 57th) and Mathews (up two to 71st) have also all made career-high gains.
