INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

25 NOVEMBER 2014
INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN
Read on-line: www.world-psi.org/VAW2014 (with high-resolution poster)

Trade unions are mobilizing against discrimination and break the silence around violence at the workplace. United for social justice and against gender-based violence!

"Violence against women at work and in the public sector is not merely the problem of the women who suffer, but of all of us. Violence against women is violence against society as a whole. Violence is about power and has a background of cultural patterns that need to be changed" says Rosa Pavanelli, General Secretary of Public Services International (PSI).

Public Services International brings together social workers, health, municipal workers and public administration: caregivers and service providers that are essential for a decent life for women and their families. For PSI, gender-based violence is a trade union issue, whether in the workplace, at home or in the community. The consequences are grim and include problems of physical and psychological health. Violence may impair the ability of women to participate in economic life, places a greater burden on public services and hinders social cohesion.

The global financial crisis and austerity policies have profound implications and a negative impact on the economic and social empowerment of women to achieve gender equality. Women face formidable challenges such as growing unemployment, the freeze of public service wages and cuts to pensions, childcare, maternity and other social benefits. The crisis in world food production and climate change are also particularly harmful to women.

Public sector workers are well positioned to promote, implement and monitor the laws and regulations in support of gender equality and protection against violence and harassment. Even when laws are put in place, communities and especially women are often not aware of them. Together with civil society, trade unions develop, implement and promote strategies to eliminate violence against women and girls. The elimination of violence requires a strong intervention of public authorities to design and implement appropriate prevention measures in place to ensure legal protection and prosecution of cases, and to provide support and compensation for victims.

Juneia Batista, Chair of the PSI World Women’s Committee says: "It is important for organizations to identify and address the underlying inequalities and abuse of power leading to discrimination and violence; organize demonstrations and events to raise awareness against discrimination and violence, and work on prevention and protection of victims of domestic violence in collective agreements.”

We call upon states to adequately fund and invest in quality public services that are accessible to women, especially women who are victims of violence. We also call on all governments to support a new ILO convention that addresses "Violence against women and men in the workplace".

-----------------------------------------------------------
EQUALITY - PUBLIC SERVICES INTERNATIONAL
Public Services International is a global trade union federation representing 20 million working women and men who deliver vital public services in 150 countries. PSI champions human rights, advocates for social justice and promotes universal access to quality public services. PSI works with the United Nations system and in partnership with labour, civil society and other organizations.

The Secretary,

Subject: Review of result of Inspector Posts Examination 2007 and 2008.

Respected Madam,

Since IP/ASP Association is not getting helpful response from Directorate to settle even small demands covered under the rules, I am writing you with hope that your kind honour will take action to uphold the law that CPMsG are overlooking for their self interest. Most of the circles have not still taken up the proposal showing correctness of review results of Inspector Posts Examination held in the year 2007 and 2008.

Directorate vide Memo No. A.34013/03/2007-DE (Pt.) dated 16.7.2010 and A.34013/01/2009-DE dated 19.9.2009 has declared the final results of Inspector Posts Examination held for the year 2007 and 2008 respectively. While going through the results it was noticed that following number of surplus vacancies in SC/ST categories after declaration of Inspector Posts Examination results are available for taking up the proposal for review:

IP/ASP Association further brought to your kind notice that, as most of the circles have not taken the proposal for review results of Inspector Posts Examination 2007 and 2008 with Directorate, hence information was obtain through RTI to streamline the position. Copy of RTI application and reply to that are enclosed as Annexure –I and Annexure –II respectively.

          Apparently proposals for review results of Inspector Posts Examination 2007 and 2008 have not been submitted to Directorate by Assam, Chhattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh, J&K, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Punjab, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal Circles for the reasons best known to them. Resultantly, a large number of mismatches of IP/ASP vacancies due to which our cadre is the most effected.   

          It is therefore requested to ascertain reasons as to why the above particularized circles failed to take up review proposals timely to Directorate and association hope that your assistance will definitely prove helpful to resolve the issue and circles will work as per law so that justice may prevail.

          Hoping for a positive action and line in reply.

Yours sincerely,

 Sd/-
