CDA Mazdoor Union Hold Big Protest in Islamabad against Bifurcation of CDA

BIFURCATION OR DIVISION OF CDA UNACCEPTABLE. WE WANT PROTECTION OF RIGHTS OF WORK FORCE OF CDA. AS  WE  ARE  NOT AFRAID OF ARRESTS. Chaudhary Yaseen Addressed in Protest at Aabpara Islamabad on 17/12/2015

 Islamabad (Press Release / Thursday, December 17, 2015) –  As announced in the Press conference held on  14.12.2015  in National Press Club, Islamabad, a Protest   and sit-in was staged by the employees of the  Capital Development Authority in Abpara Chouk Islamabad today  wherein thousands of employees of the CDA including  Central office-bearers of te CDA Mazdoor Union (CBA) and some prominent Labour Leaders  of  various  Labour Unions of Rawalpindi and Islamabad, who came  in  sympathy of the employees of CDA,  participated   in this Protest  staged by the CDA employees.

Ch.Muhammad Yaseen, said that CDA  in the wake of Local Government elections held in Islamabad,  is proposed to be divided  while the workers are feeling unrest due to   non-protection of their  guaranteed rights being  availed by them presently which they received through bilateral negotiations during last couple of  years of their CBAship.  The Union had highlighted their problems before the representatives of the sitting government, Senate of Pakistan through Public Petition, and as well  as  media, but I am sorry, no positive response  seems to have appeared except their verbal  assurances but  on the contrary, the work force  the CDA  is still frustrated.  Ultimately, this protest  was held and sit-in staged wherein different labour unions namely; Mr.J.Salik, Chairman, Minotiry Wing,PFBWW, PWF,PSB Union, Para-medical staff Union of  Polyclinic,are  participating in full support of the CDA Labour Union on their stance  of protection of their rights being affected due to bifurcation of the  Authority, without  giving them any assurance or protection of their  guaranteed rights. Resultantly and per force the CDA Union  alongwith its  workrs is on the roads to register our  protest.  CDA Mazdoor Union  will offer all sacrifices to protect the rights of the employees of the establishment. Our  legal and genuine demands  as raised are crystal and clear. Instead of dividing or bifurcating the establishment, the elected representatives be  provided representation to defend the rights of the workers in future, while our opponents are bent upon misleading our employees through false propaganda. Therefore, it is high time for us to be united and more  active to defend our legitimate rights, which they apprehend to be infringed in the days to come in the present circumstances.  The present Administration of the CDA is not taking adequate steps for the satisfaction of its employees  because of non-implementation of their agreed  demands under the law,i.e.regularization of Daily-wage/muster roll employees, employment of CDA employees’ sons, which has indeed adversely resulted in causing serious anxiety  amongst work force. We believe in bilateral dialogue  for the resolution of disputes and have never disturbed industrial  peace in the Capital.

The CDA Mazdoor Union (CBA) has struggled for the existence and unity of employees and Inshallah, in future we also believe that in the interest of  industrial peace in  the Capital,  a policy be evolved by the Government with mutual understanding and trust through bilateral negotiations  and cooperation. He warned that the above policy  adopted by the Union, may not be  treated for granted as our weakness. He appealed to the Government including Minister of State for CADD and Chairman, CDA to very kindly  cooperate and extend their help to fully safeguard  our  due rights and as  post-election arrangement, rights of the employees be assured to be safeguarded and unimplemented demands be implemented, so that the peaceful industrial  peace of the Capital is not disturbed through agitations or token strikes.

Finally, Ch.Yaseen categorically announced again  in the interest of peace, which needs not be  disturbed a our policy, that CDA Mazdoor Union is not afraid of  arrests  and requested the  honourable Prime Minister of Pakistan,Federal Minister for Interior C.Nisar Ali Khan and Federal Mnister of State for CADD to call for a meeting with the  CBA Union  wherein  grievances  of 15000 workers  be discussed,  considered and our  apprehensions  removed by  safeguarding them.

Mr.J.A.Salik, said that  Ch.Muhammad Yaseen is not only a  labour leader of the CDA but he is known at international level. As it  appears today, that on his call of today’s protest and sit-in, the Labour Unions like WAPDA. Railway. Pakistan Workers Federation, OGDC, Pakistan Sports Board, Paj OWD, Akhbar Frosh Union, Para-medical Staff including various Union from all over Pakistan are presently standing with the employees of CDA in the hour of their difficulty.
