World Federation of Trade Unions

Tremendous response to the call of Bharat Bandh, signals the mood of workers and farmers to fight to halt and reverse the anti- farmer, anti-worker, anti-people policies of the Government at the Centre. The reports from the states are pouring in regarding total Bandh in several states and substantial Bandh in some and partial in a few states. The trade unions mobilised in most of the states in solidarity support to the demand of repeal of three farm laws, electricity amendment bill, legal guarantee to MSP and also demanding withdrawal of four labour codes, hated Essential Defence Services Act. The trade unions in a statement while supporting bandh had called upon the entire working class, who are themselves fighting against the four labour codes, privatisation of PSUs in Banks, Insurance, Steel, Electricity, Coal, Petroleum, Defence, Railways, Ports, Air India, Airports, Telecom, Postal Dept, Space Science and Nuclear Science etc. are demanding universalisation of PDS, increase in MGNREGA budget, to ensure its total success through solidarity actions. The ‘Bharat Bandh’ on 27th September will give an emphatic message to the ruling party in the Central Government that the peasants and the working class, the two major sections that are the backbone of our society, stand united in opposing its anti-people and anti-national policies. This unity in action would further strengthen the Mission Uttar Pradesh and Mission Uttarakhand campaign, declared in the massive Mahapanchayat organised by the Sanyukt Kisan Morcha on 5th September, 2021. In Delhi also the trade union activists gathered at Parliament Street, marched upto Jantar Mantar and held the meeting there addressed by Amarjeet Kaur-AITUC, Harbhajan Singh-HMS, Anurag Saxena-CITU, Amar Rawat-AIUTUC, Sucheta-AICCTU, Hannan Mullah-former MP and General Secretary AIKS, Lata-SEWA, R S Dagar-UTUC, Santosh-MEC, Shri Nath-ICTU Among those who were present included Tapan Sen, General Secretary-CITU, Sukumar Damle & Vidya Sagar Giri, National Secretaries, Dhirendra Sharma, Ram Raj, Mukesh Kashyap of AITUC, Santosh Rai-AICCTU, Narayan Singh-HMS, and Filomina of NFIW, and representatives of Youth and Students Organizations.           INTUC                     AITUC                    HMS                     CITU                       AIUTUC                       TUCC                SEWA                      AICCTU                     LPF                    UTUC And Independent Sectoral Federations and Associations
