First Class Action Lawsuit against “Reversion of Employment Age” Finally Registered --Four Initiators of the “Civil Proposal” File Suit against Ministry Of Human Resources and Social Security, and Await Trial

October 13, 2016

Through the current policy of “reversion of employment age,” a significant number of people who underwent Reform-through-Labor, or who were fired or dismissed, or who voluntarily resigned from their jobs are unable to claim pension and medical insurance otherwise accumulated from their time working. Invariably, in old age these people become “victims of the ‘reversion of employment age’” policy. Dissidents who were dismissed or who received criminal sanction as a result of exercising their legal rights to free expression are among the victims. Four dissidents from Qingdao, Mou Chuanheng, Jiang Fuzhen, Zhang Xiaoxu and Jiang Chunyuan, have established precedent by bringing a suit as “co-plaintiffs” against Ji Min, head of Qingdao Human Resources and Social Security Bureau. After facing numerous obstacles and fighting repeatedly, the complaint was finally accepted and the case is now awaiting trial. They are determined to fight to the end in accordance with the law.


全国首例“工龄归零”共同诉讼终获立案
——《公民建议书》四发起人状告人社局等待开庭

鲁青讯

人力资源和社会保障部门依据(59)内人事福字第740号复函,野蛮剥夺劳动者工龄权益,非法侵吞合法财产,已致使“‘工龄归零’受害群体”无法享受劳动积累养老金与医保待遇而陷于状告无门绝境。青岛因言获罪人士,近年来虽经有关部门积极协调,试图灵活变通解决实际问题,但当地人力资源和社会保障局负责人,竟向上推诿责任,拒绝变通,断人后路。

2016年8月1日,一份一百五十余人发起提请人大审查废除([59]内人事福第740号函)公民联署建议书在海内外传播,引发舆论广泛关注,海外多家中文媒体都刊载与转发。之后,公民联署建议书发起人决定依法维权,探索“‘工龄归零’受害群体”共同诉讼之路。

2016年9月27日9时,牟传珩、姜福祯、张霄旭、姜春元率先在青岛市南法院,以“共同原告”身份,起诉青岛市人力资源和社会保障局长纪敏。但法院立案庭当日上午,竟以不能以“共同原告”,只能单人起诉为由,一再拒绝接受起诉材料。四原告依据《行政诉讼法》第二十七条“当事人一方或双方为二人以上,因同一行政行为发生的行政案件,或者因同类行政行为发生的行政案件、人民法院认为可以合并审理并经当事人同意的,为共同诉讼”规定,据理力争,要求法院不受理要给出书面裁定。牟传珩、姜福祯、张霄旭、姜春元当日交涉直至中午未果;下午再至法院,反复争取,法官终于答应暂时收下起诉材料,声称要等领导研究决定后,等几日再给答复。

10月9日,立案庭给姜福祯打来电话,仍以不能以“共同原告”身份起诉为由,要求四原告自行取回起诉材料。在此情况下,四原告多日反复拨打法院多个电话,最终接通法院院长公开电话,牟传珩向其强调了中央全面深化改革领导小组《关于人民法院推行立案登记制改革的意见》:有案必立、有诉必理;禁止不收材料、不予答复、不出具法律文书和《行政诉讼法》第二十七条关于“共同诉讼”的规定。第二天,法院立案庭再次来电话明确表示可以立案。

10月13日,牟传珩、姜福祯、张霄旭、姜春元,再次前去青岛市南法院,顺利办理了立案手续。至此全国首例“‘工龄归零’受害群体”共同诉讼,一波九折,几经刁难,终获立案,成功趟开了“‘工龄归零’受害群体”集体诉讼之路。提请人大审查废除([59]内人事福第740号函)公民联署建议书四发起人,共同状告青岛人社局正等待开庭。接下来将验证法院会不会不受权力干预,公正审理,做出经得起历史检验的公正判决。即使结果相反,或再经历二审乃至申诉最高院,“‘工龄归零’受害群体”联合依法维权,推动法治进程的决心不会动摇!

敬请“‘工龄归零’受害群体”和热心社会公平正义的人士关注。
