The  4 lakh odd Defence  Civilian Employees are on a warpath against the Government decision to convert the 41  Ordnance Factories into a  Corporation/  Public  Sector.

According to C Srikumar, General Secretary of the All India  Defence Employees  Federation (AIDEF)), “This decision of the Government will have serious implications on the  National Security. “Make in  India” cannot be achieved by destroying the  219 years old pioneer  Defence  Industry. The Country’s security cannot depend on private corporate and foreign Arms manufacturers.”

To register their protest and make the Government rethink its decision, the trade unions of the Defence  Civilian  Employees (AIDEF, INDWF, BPMS) have so far made over 15  representations to the authorities concerned including the President of  India, Prime  Minister and Defence  Minister but has not got any favourable decision. Hence the trade unions have decided to go on an indefinite  strike demanding the Government to withdraw its decision to Corporatize the  Ordnance Factories.

The strike notice has been given to the Government on Aug 4, 2020, and preparations are now going on throughout the country for commencing the indefinite strike from Oct 12, 2020.

As a part of the preparatory programme,  the  4 lakh  Defence  Civilian Employees throughout the  Country observed  “Save  Defence Industry! Save  Nation” day by holding massive demonstrations in spite of the  COVID-19  threat and lockdown.
