CITU's 14th All India Conference to begin from Apr 4 in Kannur


Thiruvananthapuram: CPI-M-affiliated CITU will hold its 14th All India Conference in Kerala from April 4 during which delegates will finalise a strategy to strengthen united trade union struggles in the country and discuss challenges regarding employment profiles.

The five-day conference in Kannur will be attended by 2,000 delegates from across the country and see the election of the office bearers, working committee and general council to lead the CITU for the next three years. The last conference was held in March 2010 in Chandigarh.

"This period of three years has been of utmost importance to the working class in India. Along with massive struggles and campaigns conducted by unions affiliated to CITU, there were huge countrywide united actions organised jointly by all the central trade unions and independent national federations.

"The conference will also discuss about further strengthening the United Trade Union struggles in the country. Various aspects of CITU's organisational functioning and growth will also be taken up for discussion," said CITU general secretary Tapan Sen.

Sen will present a report which deals with national and international political and economical developments during the last three years, with special reference to issues related to workers and other toiling sections.

Draft documents on strengthening democratic functioning of unions, on taking up the social issues, on the changes and challenges in connection with the employment profiles and the tasks in the fight for an alternative will be discussed and finalised by the conference, he said.

The conference, whose slogan is 'Intensify Class Struggle to Change Policies', will conclude with a mass rally of workers on April 8.

Elaborate preparations for the conference have been going on for the last three months in Kannur and various programmes like seminars, cultural programmes and sports events have been organised, Sen said.

An exhibition on the history of trade union movements and struggles have also been organised, he said.
