Postal JCA letter to Secretary, Department of Posts on the ongoing indefinite strike of GDS

Central Head Quarters, New Delhi – 110001

Ref:PJCA/GDSstrike/01/2018                                                                 Dated – 05.06.2018


Sri. A. N. Nanda
Department of Posts
Dak Bhawan, New Delhi – 110001


Sub: -  Ongoing GDS Strike.

As you are aware the strike of the GDS Unions demanding immediate implementation of positive recommendation of Kamalesh Chandra committee is continuing. All the four GDs Unions are on strike and the functioning of 1,29,500 Branch Post offices has been paralysed. In remaining departmental offices also work is badly affected.

Instead of taking a positive approach to discuss and settle the demands amicably, the stand of the Department and Govt. that “strike should be withdrawn first and then only discussion”, “no minutes or agreement” etc. cannot be accepted by trade Unions of its name. The attitude of the Govt. and Department is condemnable.

As GDS has not raised any unreasonable demand, prolonging the strike further will complicate the situation. We, the Federation, shall not remain as silent spectators, when 2.76 lakhs GDS who are an integral part and backbone of the rural Postal services are on strike for 15 days.

We hereby like to inform you that if the strike is not settled by accepting the reasonable demands of the striking GDS Unions immediately, NFPE and FNPO and all its affiliated unions will be compelled to join the strike with short notice. We have already notified the meetings of our managing bodies to take a decision in this regard.

We earnestly hope that the Secretary, Department of Posts, shall come forward to negotiate and settle the legitimate demands of the striking GDS Unions forthwith, before the situation goes from bad to worse.

Yours faithfully,

                        D. Kishan Rao                                                 R. N. Parashar
                        Secretary General, FNPO                              Secretary General, NFPE
