After wards MASS DHARNA was conducted IN FRONT OF ALL CPMG OFFICES ON 22-3-2016.now as a further action it was decided to conduct DHARNA INFRONT OF ALL DIVISIONAL OFFICES IN THE COUNTRY ON 10-5-2016.

Without the support and solidarity it will not be possible to organize the programme on their own by casual labour.

The Director General
Department of Posts
New Delhi – 110001
[through supt. Of po’s---------------- division]
We submit this memorandum on the problems of CASUAL PART TIME CONTINGENT & CONTRACT WORKERS IN Postal/RMS/MMS/Administrative & Postal Accounts offices,with a request to forward the same to SECRETARY, DEPT. OF POST and we also demand immediate implementation of DG ORDERS on revision of wages of FTCL/PTCL and payment of arrears IMMEDIATELY and settle all the demands mentioned in our memorandum.
The Charter of Demands is ANNEXED here with.
MEMORANDUM SUBMITTEDTO SECRETARY, DEPT.OF POST ONTHE PROBLEMS OF CASUAL. PART TIME, CONTINGENT & CONTRACT WORKERS OF THE POSTAL DEPARTMENT ON 9TH FEB 2016 AFTER MASS DHARNA.
We are submitting this memorandum on the problems faced by the casual labour working in the department since long time without any regularization even though number of times orders are issued by the department to regularize this low paid workers and apex court and various courts delivered judgments in their favor.
In this connection we convey our sincere thanks for issuing clear orders for revision of wages of these workers with effect from 1-1-2006. Though orders are issued in number of circles arrears are not paid to those workers. We request the madam to issue instructions to all circles to pay them arrears without any further delay.
Even though there are clear orders to regularize the full time casual labor who worked for 240 days in a year and part time casual labor who worked for 240 days a year for two years and various courts including SUPREME COURT delivered judgments including the judgment in UMADEVI Vs KARNATAKA STATE still these orders are not being implemented in many circles. Further as per the MTS recruitment rules 25% of the vacancies are to be filled by full time or part time casual labor that was also not being implementing in many circles/divisions. This AIC demands the postal department to take immediate action to regularize all casual, part time and contingent employees working in the postal department in a time bound manner.
In some circles the outsiders [not GDS] working as substitutes in the vacancies of postmen/MTS are not being paid pro rata wages of postman/ MTS. We demands that all substitutes [whether GDS or out siders] working in the vacant posts should be paid pro rata wages. Further it is demanded that the substitutes may be paid all benefits such as transport allowance, HRA etc. on prorate basis.
All present daily rated mazdoors [DRM] working against the departmental posts are not being paid the wages of the departmental employees. We demand that all DRM working in the departmental posts shall be paid pro rata wages of the post in which he is working.
We demand that the benefits of EPF/ESI/PENSION shall be extended to all casual, part time contingent and contract workers, working in the postal department.
We demand that as and when DA is declared and implemented for departmental employees, revised DA from the same date should be paid to all casual, part time contingent employees also without waiting for any further orders from directorate.
While fixing the working hours based on the standards for sweepers and other PTCL the minimum working hours should be fixed as 3 hrs per day. If the duty hours exceed five hours the post may be converted as full time and the official working in that post may be treated as full time casual labor.
We demand that SUNDAY and holiday wages should be paid to all casual, part time and contingent employees, who work continuously for six days in a week. The break coming on account of holiday should not be treated as a break when six continuous working days are taken.
In spite of clear modificatory orders from directorate that those casual, part time and contingent employees who are working should not be terminated and their work should not be out sourced, some of the officers [e.g. SSPO’S AMARAVATHI DN, MAHARASTRA,NAGPUR REGION] are issuing orders terminating the services of casual labor. This AIC DEMANDS THE AUTHORITIES TO STOP SUCH INHUMAN PRACTICE and reinstate all casual laborers whose services are irregularly terminated.
we demand the postal department to extend the facility of formal meetings with officers of the department at all levels to our federation which represents 46000 casual employees in the department to discuss and settle the issues of casual ,part time, contingent and contract workers which will result in better functioning in the department.
We demand immediate intervention of Postal Directorate and issue instructions to all the circles resorting to the ongoing recruitment process of GDS undermining the orders of the directorate to first exhaust the list of eligible casual labor for the recruitment to GDS posts [e.g. TAMILNADU CIRCLE except orders strictly. The Postal Directorate issued orders vide. Lr. No. 17-15/2015-GDS dated 7-5-2015 addressed to CPMG Karnataka circle and endorsed to all circles. Many divisions are going ahead to fill the vacancies ignoring the above orders. This AIC resolves to urge upon the Directorate to intervene and cause to stop the irregular process against the orders of directorate and ensure implementation of directorate orders strictly in all circles/ divisions.
We ALSO DEMANDS THE DIRECTORATE TO MODIFY THE CONDITION OF 10TH CLASS PASS COMPULSORY FORABSORPTION AGAINST GDS POST FOR CASUAL LABOUR, AS THISIS NOT REQUIRED FOR GDS MM, PACKER AND OTHER POSTS. AS SUCH WE DEMAND THE DIRECTORATE TO RELAX THAT CONDITION SO THAT NUMBER OF CASUAL LABOUR WILL GET THE CHANCE FOR REGULARISATION.
We demand the directorate to circulate the orders issued by the directorate vide its lr. No. 65-24/88-SPB-1 dated 17-5-1989 clarifying who is casual labour. Many circles /divisions are violating these instructions and denying revised wages and arrears from 1-1-2006 stating that they are not casual labors. This AIC demands the directorate to reiterate the orders once again to avoid confusion in the circles/ divisions and all PTCL/FTCL will be paid revised wages with arrears.
We demand the directorate to redeploy the GDS posts transferred to postal divisions from RMS divisions’ earlier due to proposal of abolition of GDS posts in RMS. Now orders are issued to restore the GDS posts in RMS and fill those posts. In this back ground if these posts are not diverted back to RMS divisions the casual labor working in those divisions will be deprived of their legitimate right of absorption. As such we demand the directorate to issue orders to retransfer those posts to RMS immediately and fill up those posts from the eligible casual labor of that Division.
