रोहा, रायगड.
NFTE रायगडचे जिल्हा अधिवेशन दि.25 जानेवारी 2017 रोजी रोहा, जिल्हा रायगड येथे उत्साहात पार पडले. अध्यक्षस्थानी काॅ.एन.एल. कदम हे होते तर  सर्कल सेक्रेटरी काॅ. रंजन दाणी आणि कामगार चळवळीचे अभ्यासक, लेखक, विचारवंत
काॅ. विष्णू ढोबळे प्रमुख पाहुणे म्हणून उपस्थित होते.
वर्षभरात दिवंगत झालेल्या सैनिक, शेतकरी व कामगारांना श्रद्धांजली वाहून अधिवेशनाची सुरूवात झाली. भूतपूर्व सर्कल सेक्रेटरी काॅ. रमेशजी आयरे यांचा सत्कार करण्यात आला.
काॅ. ढोबळेनी कमगार विश्वासमोरची नवी आव्हाने आणि त्याना सामोरे जाण्याची तयारी यांबाबत तपशीलवार मार्गदर्शन केले. काॅ. रंजन दाणीनी कणखर शब्दात प्रशासनाचे वाभाडे काढले. आम्हाला साधने व संसाधने उपलब्ध करून द्या मग आमच्यासमोर कोण टिकतो ते आम्ही पाहू असे खुले आव्हान त्यानी सरकार आणि प्रशासनाला दिले. भरघोस पगार, नोकरीची हमी आणि जगातली सर्वोत्तम पेन्शन ही गुप्ताजींची देन आहे
हे त्यानी ठासून सांगितले. बोनस मिळवून झालाय. पण आतापर्यंत कधीही संपाचा पगार कापला गेला नव्हता, तो कापला गेलाय.कारण सरकारला चळवळ मारून टाकायची आहे असा घणाघात त्यानी केला. NFTE परत येणा-यांचा त्यांच्या वकुबाप्रमाणे मान राखला जाईल हेही त्यानी नमूद केले.
सर्वश्री एन.एल. कदम, दीपक जाधव आणि व्ही.एन. दरेकर यांची अनुक्रमे अध्यक्ष, सेक्रेटरी आणि कोषाध्यक्ष म्हणून निवड करण्यात आली.

That is why our devotion to the NFTE has been unquestionable:

“ As in the ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’  we have cannon to the left, cannons to the right and cannons in front. In all trade unions which are mass based and which move onward, there are cannons on back also i.e. people who leave no opportunity to confuse the workers. But we are proud that workers have generally rebuffed them.”

Com. O. P. Gupta
