2nd All India Conference of AIPEU GDS (NFPE)

Preparations are going on for successful holding of 2nd AIC of AIPEU GDS (NFPE) in Shimla (Himachal Pradesh) on 19th & 20th Sep 2015. Action is being initiated by AIPEU Gr.C CHQ and letter addressed to all Branch Divisional Secretaries of Gr.C - Himachal Pradesh in this regard.

Editorial _ Dak Jagrithi (Feb-2015)

              NDA Government which came to power at Centre seven months back, has proved that it is a Govt. of the Corporates, by the Corporates and for the Corporates.  In the Central Govt. employees sector none of the issues pertaining to the employees are settled - DA merger, Interim Relief, Inclusion of GDS under 7th CPC, Scrapping of New Pension Scheme, Casual Labourers issue, Cadre Restructuring in Postal, all are pending.  Over and above this, the Modi Government is moving fast ahead with privatisation and large scale outsourcing of the core functions of the Central Government departments.  The very existence of Government-run Central Government departments are under threat.
              On 22nd August 2014, the Modi Govt. amended the 1991 Govt. of India’s Policy resolution, replacing the words “Railway Transport” as “Railway Operations”.  Simultaneously, they also announced the induction of 100% FDI in Railways including operation, construction, design and maintenance.  Induction of FDI and consequent privatisation of Railways will endanger the job security of lakhs of Railway employees.
              The Defence production sector went in for partial privatisation when the UPA Government allowed FDI to the extent of 26% whereby the foreign arms manufacturers were permitted access to the vital defence sector, disregarding the national security perspective.  What is now decided by the present NDA Government is to allow 49% FDI in defence production.  The Government has decided to set up a Corporation to carry out the functions of 41 ordnance factories under the Ministry of Defence which is a big move to privatise defence production sector.  Eventually this will lead to closure of department - controlled defence production units, unable to face the unscrupulous competition from the Transnational Corporations, driving thousands of Defence employees and workers to unemployment and poverty.
              The Task Force set up by the Government under the Chairmanship of Shri. T.S.R. Subramanian, former Cabinet Secretary to the Govt. of India, has recommended to convert the core functions of the Postal Department into a Corporation called “India Post (Financial and other services) Corporation”.  Under this holding company five more subsidiary corporations will be formed, on the lines the Telecom was made into BSN, VSNL and MTNL.  The entire social obligations will be thrust upon the Postal Department while private players will eventually take the creamy part of Postal department such as Savings Bank, PLI/RPLI, Parcels, Packets and Logistics etc.  In the longer run, the public sector company so formed would be made to incur losses and ultimate closure, as is happening in the case of BSNL. Lakhs of Postal employees will be forced to go on VRS or will become jobless.
              Thus it is very clear that Modi Government has thrown a challenge to the Central Government employees in general and to Railway, Defence and Postal Workers in particular. We must accept the challenge and defeat the nefarious design of the Modi Government, with determination and with a do or die attitude.  We must not entertain any doubt of our ultimate victory in this battle.

The Government of India and Department of Posts is not serious to settle the genuine demands of Postal employees. The common demands of D. A. merger, Interim relief, inclusion of GDS in 7th C.P.C. alongwith other demands have been rejected by the Government of India. The way through which Pay Commission seems to be working is not going to submit its report in the due period and no more benefit is expected to come in the wake of economic policies being pursued by Modi Government.

The genuine and justified demands of all sections of Postal , RMS and GDS employees are lying pending since long and Postal Board does not seem to be serious about the settlement of the same which are creating more difficulties to the employees.

The Postal JCA had submitted a 39 Points Charter of Demands on 1st September, 2014 conveying the grievances of all sections but the Department did not pay any attention to this. Being aggrieved the Postal Joint Council of Action of NFPE, FNPO and GDS unions decided unanimously to start agitational programmes in a phased manner culminating in to an indefinite strike from 6th May, 2015 and served notice to the Department. After receiving notice Department of Posts has convened a meeting on 5th February, 2015. In the mean time Task Force Committee headed by TSR Subramaian constituted as per direction of Prime Minister  has submitted its report which has categorically mentioned to divide Department of Post in six holding Companies/Corporations to pave the way for privatization, which is a very disastrous move to destroy this department  just like BSNL. The Task Force Committee has also recommended amendment of Indian Post Office Act 1898 to give legality and licenses to Couriers Companies.

After studying Task Force Committee Report PJCA met again and decided to resist the retrograde recommendations of Task Force Committee and further submitted revised Charter of Demands mentioning  --
“No Corporatization and No Privatization in Postal Services”   
-- as item no. 1 and previous items as serial No. 2 to 40. Revised 40 points Charter of Demands has been submitted to the Department and discussion will take place between Postal Board and PJCA leaders on 5th Feb 2015. If the Department does not agree to stop such type of move the PJCA will intensify the agitational programmes with full strength.

Now we are facing a very crucial and critical situation. In the wake of economic policies of Central Government entire Central Government employees including Postal employees are facing serious threat for their survival. The question before us is –Are we able to protect our department and our jobs? or Are we going to surrender? The answer is no. We are not going to surrender before these attacks. We will continue to fight against these policies as we have fought earlier on so many occasions

The 145 days strike by Postmen of Pune  in 1880, 120 days strike by Postmen of Mumbai in 1920, 25 days historic strike in 1946, 5 days strike  in 1960, 1 day strike in 1968 for minimum wages , Bonus Strike of 1974, 1 day strike on 19th September, 1984 for emancipation of GDS (ED)  employees, 1993 five days strike,1996 - 4  days strike 1998, 7 days strike 2000 Dec-14 days strike , one day strike on 12.12.12 and two days strike on 12th & 13th February, 2013 are our rich heritage which shows that we have always fought with full enthusiasm and courage and defeated the retrograde and anti working  class policies of the Government of India.

 So Comrades, NFPE along with PJCA appeals to all of you to intensify the campaign. Form JCA at all levels and popularize the demands among all sections of Postal Employees and get ready for another battle to be launched  from 6th May-2015  to save the Postal Department and to save our jobs and defeat the retrograde  policies of Central Government  and disastrous recommendations of Task Force Committee.
If we fight unitedly. We will win certainly.

This a “Do or Die Battle” for all of us.

Govt Employees’ Strike: Services To Be Hit Tomorrow In Kerala - NEWS

Thiruvananthapuram: Functioning of government offices in Kerala is likely to be adversely affected tomorrow in view of the one-day strike called by pro-LDF Action Council of State Employees and Teachers pressing their demands.
The Council demanded among other things immediate implementation of the pay revision package of government employees and teachers and also 20 per cent of the basic pay as interim relief with retrospective effect from July 1, 2014.
Chief Minister Oommen Chandy termed the strike call as politically motivated and said there was no justification for the agitation as the pay commission for revision of salaries of employees have been set up and government was waiting for its report for implementation.
During the media briefing of the cabinet meeting here, he rejected the Action Council’s charge that more than 30,000 posts have been abolished and said actually the UDF Government had created 35,000 new posts in various departments.
Chandy also said there was no need for any talks with the striking staff and justified the government decision to implement ‘dies non’ (no work no pay) rule.
