Hon’ble Prime Minister of India
New Delhi – 110001
Sub: - Inclusion of Gramin Dak Sevaks of Department of Posts under the purview of the proposed Seventh Pay Commission – regarding.
With due respect and regards, we put forth the following for your kind consideration and favourable decision please.
In the Department of Posts, the 50% of the total work force are called as Gramin Dak Sevaks and they are continuously being discriminated by separate committees formed for the consideration of their wages and service conditions.
The Supreme Court of India declared that these Gramin Dak Sevaks are holder of civil posts and it is a well settled law. Despite the judgment, the same civil servant status has not been accorded yet to them except a part in case of disciplinary proceedings.
The Fourth Central Pay Commission categorically emphasized that, the GDS issues shall be brought under the purview of Pay Commissions. But still separate committees are constituted.
The last committee constituted at the time of Sixth Central Pay Commission caused clear injustice to these employees and they are deprived all the service benefits at par with civil servants even though the law of the land declared and settled them as the holder of the civil posts.
Under these circumstances, we most humbly request the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India to consider our request and cause orders to include the GDS of the Department of Posts under the terms of reference of the Seventh Central Pay Commission.
With profound regards,
(M. Krishnan) (D. Theagarajan)

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ACTION
3rd October, 2013
Call from World Federation of Trade Unions
As you are aware, the World Federation of Trade Union was founded in an international conference of Trade Unions held at Paris from 3rd October, to 8th October, 1945. At the 16th Conference of WFTU held at Athens, Greece in April, 2011, it was decided to observe 3rd October, every year (the foundation day of WFTU) as International day of Action. In 2012, we observed the day raising the demand for food, water, health, education and housing for all.
Food: 850 million people in the world are undernourished. India is on the tgop of nations with largest member of cases of malnutrition.
Water: Privatisation of water, has caused havoc as it has become one of the most profitable enterprise. The people’s right to water(without which life cannot exist) is trampled upon in many countries in favour of Corporate profits.
Education: Education has become a commercial activity after the advent of neo liberal economic policies. The campaign for free education for all must be made intensive.
Health: Health is an extremely lucrative business. Govt. of India over the years since 1991 has withdrawn itself from this sector making private enterprises to thrive increasing the agony of the people.
Housing: A large number of our population has no dwelling place today. There is no governmental initiative in the matter in most of the countries. The poor people all over the world are left high and dry.
WFTU has now called upon the workers of the world to reiterate these demands, observe 3rd October, as International day of Action by holding rallies, demonstration etc. All employees may be requested to wear the badge depicting the five demands mentioned above on 3.10,2013. A specimen of the badge is appended hereunder.
FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS
FOOD, WATER, MEDICINES,
EDUCATION AND HOUSING

CONFEDERATION OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES & WORKERS

Dated – 25.09.2013
Central Government has announced the constitution of 7th Central Pay Commission. Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers has been raising this demand before the Government right from 2011 onwards and has conducted series of agitational programmes including Parliament March and one day nationwide strike on 12th December 2012.
While welcoming the decision of the Government, we are disappointed to note that our demand for five years wage revision w.e.f. 01.01.2011 and merger of DA has not been considered favourably by the Government. When the public sector employees are given five years wage revision and the erosion in real wages has reached an all time high due to steep price rise, grant of five year wage revision to Central Government employees is fully justified. Similarly every time the Government appointed pay commission merger of DA was also granted. This time Government has not acceded the demand for merger of DA with pay now. Thus by appointing pay commission employees will not be getting any financial benefit now. The demand for inclusion of Gramin Dak Sevaks under the purview of the 7th CPC and grant of merger of DA to GDS is also pending.
In view of the above, the National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and workers urge upon the Government to consider the above demands also favourably failing which the confederation shall be constrained go for further agitational programmes.
