No. PF-12/2017                                                       Dated :    05th  June, 2017



To,

            Shri A. N. Nanda,

            Secretary,

            Department of Posts,

            Dak Bhawan,

            New Delhi – 110001



Sub: -  Inordinate delay in settlement of the long pending problems faced by the Postal and RMS employees.

Sir,



            For the last two years we have brought the following burning issues of the Postal and RMS employees including Gramin Dak Sevaks and Casual Labourers to the notice of the Directorate for amicable settlement. We have also discussed these cases several times with the administration in the formal meetings and informal meetings. Every time, it was assured that immediate action will be taken for early settlement of the issues raised by us. But we are sorry to state that other than repeated assurances, the things have not moved an inch forward and even now the situation is the same. As a result, most of the important issues raised by us remain unsettled and day-by-day more issues are getting accumulated. Employees at the lower level are the worst victims of this situation and their anger and discontentment is growing day-by-day. Unless immediate remedial measures are not taken to settle the issues in a time-bound manner through negotiation, the situation may go from bad to worse.



The following are the issues pending settlement at Directorate level.

1.      Filling up of all vacant posts in all cadres of Department of Posts i.e. PA, SA, Postmen, Mailguard, Mailmen, Drivers and Artisans in MMS,MTS, PACO, PASBCO, Postal Accounts and GDS.

2.      Implementation of positive recommendations of GDS committee Report. Grant of Civil Servant status to GDS.

3.      Membership verification of GDS and declaration of result of regular employees membership verification.

4.      Stop all types of harassment and victimization in the name of new schemes and technology induction and under contributory negligence factor and Trade Union victimization.

5.      Payment of Revised wages and arrears to the casual, part-time, contingent employees and daily rated mazdoors as per 6th& 7th CPC and settle other issues of casual labourers.

6.      Stop Privatization, Contractorization and outsourcing.

7.      Implement cadre Restructuring for leftout categories i.e. RMS, MMS, PACO, PASBCO, Postmaster Cadre Postal Accounts etc. and accept the modifications suggested by Federation before implementation of cadre restructuring in Postal Group ‘C’.

8.      Provision of CGHS facilities to Postal Pensioners also as recommended by 7th CPC.

9.      Withdraw NPS (Contributory Pension Scheme). Guarantee 50% of last pay drawn as minimum pension.

10.  Implement five days week working for operative staff in the Postal department.



            As a responsible organisation, we have been extending full support and cooperation to the administration, in running the department in a most efficient manner and also for induction of high technology and increasing the revenue and productivity. But we regret to note that it has become a one-sided affair and the top level administration has failed to reciprocate the positive attitude shown by the employees.



            The Federal Executive meeting of National Federation of Postal Employees which met at New Delhi on 12.05.2017 has viewed with grave concern the situation prevailing in the Department of Posts. The meeting has come to the inescapable conclusion that we can no longer be taken for granted by the administration, if the genuine and legitimate demands of the employees are not settled in a time bound manner through negotiations. The Federal Executive meeting further decided to organize following phased programme of action culminating in strike, for realization of the demands mentioned above.



Phase- I           – Mass Dharna in front of all Divisional offices.

Date -              -  20.06.2017



Phase – II        - Mass Dharna in front of all Circle/Regional offices.

Date –             - 12.07.2017



Phase – III       - Mass dharna in front of Postal Directorate, Dak Bhawan, New Delhi.

Date –                         - 26.07.2017



Phase IV          - One day nationwide strike on 23.08.2017 (Formal notice of the strike will be served later.)



            We once again like to make it clear that we want to avoid a confrontation with the Administration and earnestly hope that the Secretary, Department of Posts, shall come forward for a negotiated settlement. On the other hand, we will be left with no alternative, but to go ahead with our agitational programmes as mentioned above.



Awaiting positive response,



Yours faithfully,



(R. N. Parashar)

Secretary General
