NJCA declared indefinite strike from 11.04.2016, but due to elections for 4 states it deferred to 11.07.2016

Details Regarding strike negotiation and settlement:

The NJCA met the Home Minister in a delegation. The issues in the Charter of demands were discussed with special reference to the 7th CPC related demands. The delegation brought to the notice of the Hon Home Minister that the NJCA has not received a communication from the Government over the assurances held out on 30th June, 2016, when the NJCA delegation met the Hon Home Minister, Finance Minister and the Railway Minister. The Government had assured to refer the revision of Minimum wage and fitment formula to a High Level Committee of Ministers. They added that such a communication in confirmation of the assurances will enable them to take a decision over the strike action which is to commence from 11th July, 2016.

The Hon Home Minister assured the delegation that the Government will honour the assurances held out to the NJCA leaders on 30th June, 2016 Finance minister has issued a press statement in this regard.

During the course of discussion Sri Kannaiah, General Secretary SRMU issued a press statement that the strike is deferred without consulting with leaders of NJCA which spoils the bargaining capacity of NJCA before government.


After the meeting with the Home Minister today by the NJCA and further developments leading to issue of a Press Release by the Government of India assuring consideration of the issues raised by the Staff Side relating to the pay scales and other recommendations of the Pay Commission by a High Level Committee, the NJCA has decided to defer the Indefinite Strike in the background of meetings with the Ministers and the assurance by the Government of India.
