The central trade unions are planning a nationwide campaign "to expose the anti-labour policies of the NDA Government" and exert pressure on the government to roll back its move to push through Rajasthan model of labour laws, CITU National secretary Swadesh Dev Roye has said.

He told reporters here on Sunday that on September 2, 2015, the nation had come to a halt with workers affiliated to all central trade unions and a large section of workers, who were not affiliated to any trade union, had struck work for a day protesting against the anti-labour policies of the government. The government was not at all responsive, he alleged.

He alleged that the BJP-led government had set a target for disinvestment and was bent upon weakening the public sector units. The government’s aim was to help the big business houses and corporates.

The CITU (Centre of Indian Trade Unions) is organising a national labour convention in New Delhi on March 30 and more than 1,000 delegates are expected to participate in the convention where united action programmes shall be finalised.
