StrikeThe National Co-ordination Committee of Electricity Employees and Engineers  gave a notice to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) on March 2 in which it stated that if the Central government decided unilaterally to rush the Electricity (Amendment) Bill 2014 in the Budget session then all 25 lakh power employees and engineers across the country would resort to a one-day strike and boycott work on the same day as a protest.


The National Co-ordination Committee of Electricity Employees and Engineers has also told the PMO that power employees and engineers would hold a rally in New Delhi on April 3 and massive demonstrations in all state capitals on March 14 against the Electricity (Amendment) Bill 2014.
The All-India Power Engineers’ Federation (AIPEF), All-India Federation of Power Diploma Engineers (AIFOPDE), Electricity Employees’ Federation of India (CITU), All-India Federation of Electricity Employees (AITUC), Indian National Electricity Workers’ Federation (INTUC), All-India Power Men Federation and other power workers’ associations are associated with the National Co-ordination Committee of Electricity Employees and Engineers.
Shailendra Dubey, chairman, AIPEF, said the notice of the National Co-ordination Committee of Electricity Employees and Engineers stated that the commitment of former Power Minister to power employees and engineers to redress some of their grievances against the drafted Bill was not being honoured and correspondence with the present Power Minister had become futile and not yielded any result.
He said engineers and employees of the power sector were agitated over the Union government’s unilateral decision to pass the proposed Electricity (Amendment) Bill 2014 without any prior discussion with them as committed by former Power Minister Piyush Goyal.
Dubey said to save the public-owned power sector from bankruptcy, the National Co-ordination Committee of Electricity Employees and Engineers    and AIPEF had already sent their viewpoint as per the recommendation of the national seminar on power held in Bangalore in November 2017.
He added that the engineers and employees had opposed the Electricity (amendment) Bill 2014 as it was a further step towards the reduction of the state’s role to a mere enabler of private profit.
