ALL INDIA GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS UNION (AIGDSU)
No.GDS/CHQ/1/5/2015 Dated 11-5-2015
All Circles/Divisional/ Branch Secretaries of All India Gramin Dak Sevaks Union All India Office Bearers….
BOTH DEPARTMENTAL AND GDS EMPLOYEES ARE BEING CHEATED ONCE AGAIN BY POSTAL JCA (NFPE-FNPO) AS USUAL.
THIS IS THE FIFTH TIME POSTAL JCA (NFPE-FNPO) WITHDREW THE STRIKE WITHOUT SINGLE ACHIEVEMENT
POSTAL JCA (NFPE-FNPO) ACCEPTED OFFICERS COMMITTEE BY ARGUING THAT THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUDICIAL COMMITTEE AND OFFICERS COMMITTEE. THEY MORTGAGED 2.62 LAKHS GDS EMPLOYEES FUTURE TO THE ADMINISTRATION.
POSTAL JCA PLAYED CHEAP TRICKS BY REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT TO REFER GDS ISSUE THIRD TIME TO DEPARTMENT OF EXPENDITURE TO PREVENT APPOINTMENT OF JUDICIAL COMMITTEE.
History repeats. Postal JCA deferred the proposed indefinite strike of 6th May, 2015 without any achievement by cheating both the departmental and GDS employees once again.
The announcement of indefinite strike of 6th May was made before Six Months. Postal JCA leaders created illusion among the postal employees that all the Central Government unions i.e. Railway, Defence, income tax etc are going to participate in the indefinite strike for the cause of GDS employees i.e. inclusion of GDS in the terms of reference of 7th Central Pay Commission.
It is known fact that the Department of Expenditure denied the GDS inclusion in the month of November, 2014. While postal JCA kept quiet on this issue AIGDSU conducted series of heroic struggles including indefinite strikes in Feb, 2014 and March, 2015. Postal JCA tried to dilute and divert AIGDSU agitations supporting the administration.
Once again in the month of April, 2015 Department of expenditure denied the GDS inclusion in 7th CPC. Then also no action has been taken by PJCA.
The Dept. of posts convened meeting with postal JCA leaders to discuss the Charter of demands on 05.02.2015. After the meeting, the postal JCA leaders expressed strong dissatisfaction about the replies given by the Department and decided to go on indefinite strike. After the strike notice issued by postal JCA, Again the Dept. convened the meeting with postal JCA leaders on 30.04.2015 and same replies were given without changing comma, full stop. There is no development and no changing in the attitude of the Department towards the Charter of demands. Surprisingly the postal JCA deferred the indefinite strike. What a pity!
In the case of AIGDSU, there is a total difference in the replies given by the department on 19.02.2015 before the strike and on 24.03.2015 after the strike. After
the indefinite strike of AIGDSU positive replies were given. That is the achievement of AIGDSU indefinite strike. Our struggle is beginning to move towards the regularization. All the postal fraternity are requested to analyze the difference between the struggles of AIGDSU and others.
Most important demands i.e. grant merger of 100% D.A with Pay w.e.f. 01.01.2014, grant of 25% Pay as interim Relief (IR) w.e.f. 01.01.2014 were totally rejected. But PJCA ranaway from the battle field before beginning the battle surrendering the postal trade union movement at the feet of administration.
We came to know that PJCA agreed to act as per the aspirations of Dept. to prevent appointment of Judicial Committee as demanded by AIGDSU. Because of that hidden agenda PJCA requested the Department to refer the GDS issue to Department of expenditure third time.
It is also known fact that the PJCA repeatedly propagated about the participation of Railway, Defence etc unions in 6th May strike to cheat the postal employees particularly GDS employees. AIGDSU obviously told this from the beginning. It proved now.
We would like to remind all the postal fraternity particularly GDS employees Nobody except AIGDSU has guts to fight for the cause of GDS employees.
Hence CHQ appeals all GDS that the doors of AIGDSU are always kept open for all GDS to build broder unity among GDS to fight effectively and efficiently to achieve the regularization demand by indefinite strikes in future. Join in AIGDSU with confidence and hope.
SEND CD TO CHQ
