Confederation of central government employees threatens strong action

Expressing "extreme disappointment" at the Sixth Pay Commission report, the confederation of central government employees on Tuesday asked the government to re-negotiate the deal with them and threatened strong action otherwise.

"The minimum wages have been fixed at Rs 6,600 per month as against our demand of Rs 10,000," the CCGE said.

The employees are extremely disappointed as it is just not acceptable, the association said. Asking the government to re-negotiate the entire report with it, the CCGE said "we would definitely react very strongly if that is not done".
