Subject: BEFI'S POSITION ON FOUR DAYS STRIKE
We are receiving lot of queries form various centres as to
what was our stand relating to four days strike that was to take place
on 21-24th January, 2015.
In the UFBU meeting in Mumbai, held on 19th instant, the undersigned
and Com. GMV Nayak were present.
Going by the sitting order, Chairman of the meeting first asked us to give our opinion
after initial presentation by Com. Convenor.
We categorically said that we do feel there is no positive development and
hence we opined for implementation of the strike call and that should be
with the participation of all constituents.
Differing views sharply came up in the meeting and the meeting prolonged
for more than three hours.
To arrive at a consensus, the decision to keep the strike call on hold was taken.
It is unfortunate that some constituents have issued circular claiming that
only they were in favour of strike for four days.
It is not correct. Ours was the first organisation to speak and we spoke in favour of
going for four days strike.
We hope the position will be clear to you now and you will be able to counter any criticism
