CITU Congratulates Employees for

Their Historic Strike in Haryana


The following is the statement issued by the Centre of Indian Trade Unions on January 22


THE Centre of Indian Trade Unions congratulates the state government employees of Haryana for their historic and massive three daysí strike, which commenced on January 21, 2014. The Haryana Road Transport workers started the strike on January 20 opposing privatisation of the public transport and demanding filling up of vacant posts. Through this joint strike the state government employees have not only raised the demands of the different segments of state government employees but also of the common people and the youth.


CITU strongly condemns the lathi charge and the arrest of thousands of the striking employees and warns the Haryana state government the struggle of the workers and employees on their genuine demands cannot be suppressed through such high handed and repressive measures.


CITU expresses its solidarity to the demands and the struggle of the state government employees of Haryana and demands the state government to immediately discuss with the organisations of the state government employees and resolve their demands amicably.
