A meeting of PJCA comprising NFPE, FNPO, AIPEU-GDS & NUGDS was held at NFPE
office NorthAvenuePostOfficeBuilding, New Delhi on 16thNovember, 2016
under the presidentship of Shri D. Theagarajan Secretary General FNPO. All
General Secretaries of both the Federations participated in the meeting. After
threadbare discussion the following resolution, programme of action and Charter
of Demand was finalized.
Postal Joint Council of Action (PJCA), views with grave concern the totally
negative attitude of the Central Government in settling the common demands of
the Central Government employees including increase in minimum wage and fitment
formula and other modifications sought for by the National Joint Council of
Action (NJCA) and JCM (NC) staff side.
This PJCA further notes that in the Postal department also due to the negative
attitude of the Government and Postal administration long pending demands are
remaining unsettled. None of the 7thCPC related demands of various cadres
of Postal department are settled. Regularization of Gramin Dak Sevaks and grant
of all benefits of regular employees on pro-rata basis is still pending. The
New Pension Scheme (NPS) has created uncertainty among the employees recruited
after 01.01.2004, about their pensionary benefits. Department has unilaterally
issued orders for outsourcing booking and delivery of registered, speed post
and express parcel post articles and engaging staff on each Sunday &
holiday to deliver parcels of e-commerce companies . The task force committee
recommendations are not yet dropped, no effective remedial measures are taken
to streamline the functioning of CBS/CSI, revision of wages and payment of
arrears of casual labourers from 01.01.2006 is still pending in many circles,
more than 60000 vacancies in various cadres including promotional posts are
remaining unfilled. Now due to monetization Scheme more difficulties are
being faced by the staff due to lack of proper infrastructure and engaging
staff beyond duty hours. All the above issues are agitating the minds of the
employees for a long time.
The PJCA after reviewing the situation prevailing in the Postal department came
to the unanimous conclusion that to settle the above issues, serious
agitational programmes are to be launched. Accordingly the PJCA resolve to
implement the following phased programme of action.
