Dear Comrades,

Sub: AIRF decides "Indefinite Strike" on Indian Railways.

After having been given deep thought to the present state of affairs in respect of important, genuine and long pending demands of the Railwaymen and seriously considering the overall situation, the Government of India and Ministry of Railway’s reluctant attitude towards resolving these issues, most of which are enlisted in the Resolution passed by the 88th AGM of AIRF held at Visakhapatnam from 18th to 20th December, 2012, it has been unanimously decided in the meeting of the Standing Committee of the AIRF held in New Delhi on 26th June, 2013. wherein President and General Secretaries of all the AIRF affiliates of Zonal Railways & Production Units were present along with the office bearers of the AIRF to launch a direct Action Programme, for preparation of the “Indefinite Railway Strike’ in the leadership of Shri Umraomal Purohit, President/AlRF.

It was further decided that Shri Purohit shall contact the leaders of other organizations worth considering for a broad-based unity.

It is also left to Shri Umraomal Purohit to finalize the Charter of Demands and the direct Action Programme, including schedule of "Indefinite Railway Strike”.

Standing Committee also decided to call General Council of AIRF at an appropriate time to ratify the decision taken by Standing Committee.

This is for your information and necessary action.

With fraternal greetings.

Comradely yours,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary
