PSU, Central government officers’ forum to protest privatization

CHENNAI: Members of the All India Public Sector And Central Government Officers' Confederation, representing nearly 13 lakh officers across the country, will launch a nationwide agitation "to safeguard the public sector from merger and privatisation", the confederation has said.

On Saturday, members met in Chennai for their first conference, in which representatives of officers' associations of various sectors such as banking, telecom, oil, railways, defence, pharma, Central Excise, insurance and CPWD shared their concerns on steps taken by the BJP-led Centre to privatise Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) and enterprises.

The statement added that the committee "was unanimous in opposing" the roadmap laid by the government "at the behest of NITI Aayog, Banks Board Bureau and the RBI to weaken and then privatise the Public Sector Organisations".

The conference resolved to demand for a common forum for PSUs to settle the issues of uniform pay revision, among other issues, and to reach out to the public through the 'Peoples Parliament for Unity and Development' programme.
