ONE DAY HUNGER FAST PROGRAMME ON 11-12-2015
ONE DAY MASS HUNGER FAST IN FRONT OF ALL CPMG / PMG & DIVISIONAL OFFICES ON 11th DECEMBER 2015.
TO EXPRESS OUR ANGER, RESENTMENT AND STRONG PROTEST AGAINST THE REJECTION OF THE LEGITIMATE DEMANDS OF THREE LAKHS GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS BY THE NDA GOVT.
The Federal Secretariat of NFPE held at NFPE Office, New Delhi on 26-11-2015, reviewed the whole situation prevailing among the postal employees in general and the Gramin Dak Sevaks (GDS) in particular after the submission of the 7th Central Pay Commission Report to the Govt and also after the appointment of a separate committee for GDS by the Govt, headed by a retired Postal Board Member as Chairman.
Even though the Govt refused to include the GDS under the 7th CPC, the 7th CPC has suo moto examined the main demand of the GDS ie., treating them as Civil Servants and extending them all the benefits of the departmental employees, of course proportionately.
It is most unfortunate that the Pay Commission headed by a retired Supreme Court Justice as Chairman, has considered our demand and categorically stated that Gramin Dak Sevaks are holders of Civil Posts but outside the regular civil service and hence can not be treated at par with other civilian employees.
The Federal Secretariat called upon to organize one day hunger fast on 11th December 2015 in front of all CPMG / PMG & Divisional Offices through out the country to ventilate our anger, protest and resentment against the callous and inhuman attitude of NDA Govt. towards three lakh Gramin Dak Sevaks.
The NFPE & AIPEU GDS (NFPE) calls upon all CHQ office bearers, Circle Secretaries, Divisional & Branch Secretaries of all affiliated unions to make the one day hunger fast programme of 11th December 2015 a grand success.
