Press Release on 8th January Strike in Power sector


Workers and Engineers of Electricity industry took part in the strike all over the country in huge number. Workers took part in the strike directly responding to the calls of respective trade unions, while Engineers and Junior Engineers in support of the strike call, boycotted the work at the behest of NCCOEEE, the broad based National platform of Electricity Employees and Engineers. To what extent the strike was successful or failed cannot be adjudged through statements of the Government or state owned power utilities. Best indicator is power consumption. It has been so far revealed that in last quarter of 2019 power consumption dropped to the extent of 13% in comparison to the similar period of 2018. Modi Charisma did not work in so far power consumption is concerned. As gathered from different power system load despatch centres all over the country, the mid day system demands in different states on date fell down to the extent of 5 to 20% in comparison to normal January workday. Northern India states are facing squally weather from winter rain. Thousands of striking workers, Junior Engineers and Engineers have mobilised in front of the state Power utility headquarters and major power installations raising placards and banners of their demands. Magnificent demonstration observed in UP, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and Himachal Pradesh. In Eastern India, Power workers of Odisha and West Bengal took part in the strike including demonstration at different districts.

NCCOEEE National Forum convey warm greetings to all NCCOEEE constituents along with their members across the country for massive participation in the first day (8th January, 2019) of Two Day Strike / Work Boycott against Government’s game plan to curb the right to electricity for the rural as well poor people of India through enactment of Electricity (Amendment) Bill, 2018 concurrently supporting the call of two days’ General Strike on 8th and 9th January 2019 upon 12 point charter of demand for people of all walks of life, by all central Trade Unions and independent National level Federations of core Industries.

Government’s action towards floating the Draft Electricity (Amendment) Bill, 2018 in the public domain for opinion was reciprocated by NCCOEEE on 3rd October, 2018. Formal Notice of Strike / Work Boycott was sent on 10th December, 2018. Only on 3rd January, 2019, Ministry of Power acknowledged the same indicating the Strike as an immature step. Three million workers, employees and engineers of power sector have replied today in a befitting manner. NCCOEEE leadership expect the struggle will be intensified in the second day on 9th January, 2019 and good sense will prevail upon the Government to concede the demands.

These workers under the platform of United Forum resorted to various struggle including hunger Strike. AP Government and Power Corporations management assured them wage increase and direct payment but their commitment resulted into hoax.
