The audit & accounts employees and officers and the central government employees, through the massive participation in the 20th August 2008 strike have stated in unequivocal terms their determination to fight against the denial of minimum wage and fitment formula and also against the move to contractorise the jobs in the government offices. The employees and officers have understood that the 6 CPC recommendations and its implementation by the Government are nothing but the extension of the neoliberal economic policies that the successive governments are pursuing for the last nearly two decades. This realization led to massive participation despite attempts to term the strike action as a political one. The employees and officers emphatically reacted against the politics of neo-liberal economic policies.
The participation of Audit & Accounts officers in IA&AD is noteworthy especially when the administration did their best to put hurdles.
The All India Accounts and Audit Officers Association once again Congratulates every member, every activist and every leader for the successful strike on 20th August 2008.
This success against all odds gives us confidence to decide on future actions on the 6 CPC related issues.
