JCA Trade Union Programme on removal of working staff - Tamil Nadu Circle - succeeded

         For the past 5 years to manage the sorting asst vacant places in mail offices nearly 130 to 140 outsiders having +2 qualifications and above are working in all units of RMS CB Dn for sorting unregd articles and sometimes in regd branches also. They are working on hourly rate fixed by Dist collectors.
