The Confederation in its Charter of demand has noted that they will go on strike from July 11, if the government fails to meet their demands.
The Empowered Committee of Secretaries will be meeting on Saturday to finalize its review of the 7th Pay Commission's recommendations, which will impact the wages of thousands of central government employees, a Zee News report said.
The Secretaries' group has recommended a wage hike of Rs 21,000 and Rs 2.7 lakh for the lower and upper level, respectively. This is Rs 3,000 more for the lower level and Rs 20,000 more for the upper level prescribed by the 7th CPC.
The Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers criticized the revised suggestions saying that a "meager rise of 14% alone was recommended by the Commission to be effective for a long period of ten years", said the report. The Confederation has demanded for minimum salary of Rs 26000 per month.
In January, the Empowered Committee of Secretaries was set up which will meet today to review the Commission's recommendations and take final call on monthly pay package of government employees.
Nearly 47 lakh central government employees and 50 lakh pensioners payroll will be impacted once the salary recommendations are rolled out.
