He continued as the Advisor of the Confederation and also as the Secretary General of National Co-ordination Committee of Pensioners Association (NCCPA) and Bharat Central Pensioners Confederation (BCPC) till death.
Com.Vyasji has led various struggles and strike actions of the Central Govt. Employees and was in the forefront of the leadership which organised the first indefinite strike action of the Central Govt. employees after independence, in the year 1960. Com. Vyas was jailed and dismissed from service. He played an important role in rallying the Central Govt. employees along with the striking Railway employees in the year 1974. He was an able and uncompromising negotiator with the Government in the JCM National Council and Standing Committee. He was responsible for many of the benefits and allowances enjoyed by the Central Govt. employees. The cost indexation of wages was earned by the Govt. employees through the sustained struggles and efforts in 1960s under his leadership. Confederation of Central Govt. employees and workers representing about 15 lakhs Central Govt. employees is in the forefront of the incessant struggle and strike actions organised by Indian Working Class against the neo-liberal economic policies of the Government. Com. S. K. Vyasji’s vision and ideological clarity has made the Confederation, part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class movement in India.
He is in our hearts! His memories will be forever with us! His long saga of struggle and sacrifice for the Central Govt. employees and pensioners will inspire the generations to come.
