MAKE INDEFINITE STRIKE FROM 6TH MAY-2015
A HISTORIC SUCCESS
The Government of India and Department of Posts is not serious to settle the genuine demands of Postal employees.
The common demands of
D. A. merger,
inclusion of GDS in 7th C.P.C.
alongwith other demands have been rejected by the Government of India.
The Postal JCA had submitted a 39 Points Charter of Demands on 1st September, 2014 conveying the grievances of all sections but the Department did not pay any attention to this.Being aggrieved the Postal Joint Council of Action of NFPE, FNPO and GDS unions decided unanimously to start agitational programmes in a phased manner culminating in to an indefinite strike from 6th May, 2015 and served notice to the Department. After receiving notice Department of Posts has convened a meeting on 5th February, 2015.
In the mean time Task Force Committee headed by TSR Subramaian constituted as per direction of Prime Minister has submitted its report which has categorically mentioned
to divide Department of Post in six holding Companies/Corporations
to pave the way for privatization.
“No Corporatization and No Privatization in Postal Services”
as item no. 1 and previous items as serial No. 2 to 40.
Revised 40 points Charter of Demands has been submitted to the Department and discussion will take place between Postal Board and PJCA leaders on 5th Feb 2015.
If the Department does not agree to stop such type of move the PJCA will intensify the agitational programmes with full strength.
