Sub: Regarding delivery of letters under Pradhan Mantri, Jan ArogyaYojna (PMJAY) on Sunday.

Ref: Dte. No. 59-01/2018-BD dated 21st October 2018.

Sir,

Your kind attention is invited towards Directorate letter no. as referred above under which orders have been issued to make delivery of the letters under Pradhan Mantri Jan AarogyaYojna (PMJAY) on Sunday.

In this connection we want to bring to your kind notice that now a days it has become the order of the day that on each and every Sunday officials are being engaged in various works like delivery of some important letters, some melas to achieve targets in various schemes, various meetings on new and premium schemes and other schemes of the Department. The officials of Department of Posts are now deprived from their basic right of availing weekly off.

Now the delivery of PMJAY letters has been entrusted to the staff which is very much causing troubles and sufferings to the employees.

It is also worth mentioning here that no off or any type of compensation is granted to the officials attending duty on Sunday and holiday. This shows apathetic attitude of the officers of Department.

Already Postal Employees are suffering a lot after implementation of CBS, CSI, IPPB, RICT, Aadhar, Passport, PNOP and other schemes.

It is therefore requested to kindly cause suitable instruction to all not to deprive the employees to avail their weekly offs and this practice should be ended.

With regards,

Yours sincerely,

(R. N. Parashar)
General Secretary

NFPE CALLS UPON POSTAL EMPLOYEES TO MAKE 2019 JANUARY 8th & 9th TWO DAYS STRIKE – A GRAND SUCCESS

NFPE CALLS UPON POSTAL EMPLOYEES TO MAKE 2019 JANUARY 8th & 9th TWO DAYS STRIKE – A GRAND SUCCESS

THE FOLLOWING IS THE EDITORIAL PUBLISHED IN ‘POSTAL CRUSADER’ THE OFFICIAL ORGAN OF NATIONAL FEDERATION OF POSTAL EMPLOYEES (NFPE)

IMPORTANCE OF JANUARY 2019 TWO DAYS STRIKE

National Convention of Workers organized by Central Trade Unions (except BMS), independent Federations and Associations viz; Central Government and State Govt. Employees, Banks, Insurance, Defence production employees etc, held at Mavlankar Hall, New Delhi on 28th September 2018, has decided to conduct two days nationwide strike on 8th& 9th January 2019. Earlier, Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers, in its National Convention held at Hyderabad on 10th June 2018, has decided to go for one day’s nationwide strike on 15th November 2018, demanding settlement of 10 points Charter of demands of Central Govt. Employees, Pensioners, Gramin DakSevaks and casual/contract workers. In the changed circumstances, Confederation has decided to postpone the 15th November 2018 one day strike and to join the two days strike on 8th and 9thJanuary 2019 announced by the National Convention of Workers. There is no change in the 10 points charter of demands of Confederation adopted in the Hyderabad National Convention.

The declaration adopted in the National Convention of Workers held on 28th September 2018 has stated as follows:

“Government is dragging its feet on wage negotiations of public sector in bipartite settlement and 7th Central Pay Commission anomalies of Central Government employees. Four sub committees were formed by the Government to address several issues raised by Central Government employees (NJCA) such as scrapping of New Pension Scheme (NPS) review of Minimum wage and fitment formula, restoration of allowances and allowing option-I as one of the pension benefit formula. But nothing has been done.

The Central Government Employees organisations including the Defence and Railways have been planning united action against the betrayal of the Government and asserting their genuine demands including scrapping of New Pension Scheme. This National Convention extends full support to their struggle and upholds all their demands.”

Thus, the entire Trade unions (other than BMS) has taken serious view of the negative attitude of the Central Government towards the demands of Central Government employees and Pensioners and extended full solidarity and support to our struggle.

Unrest among the New Pension Scheme (NPS) employees is rising day by day. Those NPS employees who retired from service, in 2015 to 2018, after completing ten years’ service are getting a paltry sum of Rs.1000 to 3000 only as monthly annuity pension. How can a pensioner and his family live with such a megre amount as pension. This is equal to “No Pension”, Under the Old Pension Scheme (OPS) an employee who completed minimum ten yearsservice is eligible for 50% of last pay drawn as minimum pension.

Regarding increase in Minimum Pay and Fitment formula, the assurance was given to the NJCA leaders by none other than the Hon’bleHome Minister and Finance Minister on 30.06.2016. Two years are over but nothing happened. Government has replied in Parliament that, at present, there is no proposal for increasing Minimum Pay and Fitment formula. Thus the entire Central Govt. Employees are betrayed. Regarding Pensioners, the one and the only favourable recommendation of the 7th CPC i.e. Option-I, stands rejected by Government.

Three lakhs GraminDakSevaks of the Postal department conducted a heroic strike for sixteen days and finally Govt. was compelled to accept their demands.But while issuing orders, eventhough new pay scale recommended by the Kamalesh Chandra Committee is implemented, regarding arrears the Committee’s recommendation was rejected and modified by Govt. Some important recommendations like Children Education Allowance, Time bound three financial upgradations etc. are still pending. Regarding revision of wages of Casual Labourers, orders issued by Postal Directorate is yet to be implemented in some Circles and Divisions and their demand for regularisation is not considered favourably by Govt.

The situation in the country is deteriorating day by day. National economy including value of Indian currency, suffered serious setback due to pro-corporate, anti-labour and anti-people neo-liberal policies pursued by the Central Government, grievously impacting the livelihood of the working people and farmers.

The situation due to steep rise in petrol and diesel prices with cascading effect on increase in prices of all daily life utility items, especially food items, is resulting in torturous impact on common masses. The unemployment situation is getting aggravated with employment generation practically turned negative even in most labour-oriented sectors. The agricultural sector and farmers are in deep distress. The after-effects of demonitisation and faulty GST Continue to adversely impacting the deep crisis set in the fast-paced neo-liberal economic policies of the Government. Lack of job opportunities on the one hand and continued job losses, retrenchments, illegal closures on the other hand are imposing miserable condition on the ordinary families for their food, education of children and medical care of the sick and elderly, Aggressive move to sell the shares of the Public Sector undertakings and onslaught of privatization through various routes like outsourcing, PPP etc. is going on in full swing. The demand for universal social security with guaranteed pension has fallen on deaf ears.

Central Govt. not only refused to respond to the just and genuine demands of the organized agitation of working class, but has been continuing its aggression against the hard-won labourrights of the workers, employees and Trade Unions. It is in this background the entire working class of our country has decided to fight back the onslaught of the Govt. against the working class and peasants.

National Federation of Postal Employees (NFPE) has been in the forefront of the struggle against the neo-liberal policies of the Govt. especially against the negative attitude of the Govt. towards the Central Govt. Employees demands including Postal employees.

On January 8th& 9th, about 18 to 20 crores organized and unorganized workers will go on two days strike. NFPE HQ calls upon the entirety of Postal and RMS employees including GraminDakSevaks and Casual, Part-time, Contingent employees to join the strike en-mass. It is a struggle for our survival.

NFPE: GDS Committee Report still pending for approval

POST OFFICE SMALL SAVINGS SCHEMES

UNDER HEAVY ATTACK

GDS MEMBERSHIP VERIFICATION PROCESS STOPPED.

IMPLEMENTATION OF GDS COMMITTEE REPORT DELAYED FOR ONE YEAR, STILL PENDING WITH FINANCE MINISTRY.

HOLD PROTEST DEMONSTRATIONS AT ALL CENTRES AND IN FRONT OF ALL OFFICES ON 23.10.2017.

FEDERAL SECRETARIAT WILL MEET AND DECLARE FURTHER COURSE OF ACTION.

Dear Comrades,

Government has unleashed a sudden and most damaging attack on Post office Small Savings Schemes. Notifications are already issued permitting all Nationalised Banks and three Private Banks ( ICICI Bank , AXIS Bank and HDFC Bank) to accept deposits for all Small Savings Schemes viz ; Recurring Deposit (RD) , Time Deposits (TD) , Monthly Income Scheme (MIS) Senior Citizen Savings Scheme (SCSS) , Sukanya Samridhi Account (SSA) , Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) and National Savings Certificate (NSC VIII issue) with effect from 10th October 2017.

This is a great blow to the Post office Small Savings Schemes and will be a threat to the job security of Postal Employees and also MPKBY /SAS Agents. About 40% of the Revenue and about 50% of the workload of Post office depends on the Post office Small Savings Schemes. Outsourcing of POSSS work to Banks will result in steady fall in Revenue and Workload of Postal Department.

GDS Committee Report , though submitted to Govt on 24th November 2016 , is still pending with Finance Ministry for approval. GDS Membership verification process has been suddenly stopped by the Government.

Overall situation in Postal Department is worsening day by day and resentment of the Employees is mounting.

NFPE CHQ views the above situation with grave concern and calls upon the entirety of Postal and RMS employees including GDS and Casual labourers to conduct mass protest demonstrations at all Centres and in front of all offices on 23rdOCTOBER 2017.

Urgent meeting of NFPE Federal Secretariat to be held shortly will announce further course of action.

 

Yours fraternally,

Postal Employees strike today for implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations

Postal Employees strike today for implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations

postal-employees-strike-7thCPC

A postal employees’ union has threatened to go on a one-day strike on August 23 to protest against non-implementation of benefits as suggested by the 7th Pay Commission.

The National Federation of Postal Employees (NFPE), which represents around 4 lakh staff, has called for nationwide strike today to press for implementation of benefits suggested by the Gramin Dak Sevaks committee report, the federation’s secretary general, R N Parashar said.

The threat has come at a time when another postal staff union, All India Gramin Dak Sevak Union (AIGDSU) that claims support of around 1.8 lakh GDS, has already been on indefinite strike since last week to press for implementation of the committee’s report. Parashar said, “The GDS committee submitted report in November 2016 for the welfare of gramin dak sevaks (GDS) but the management is holding it back without any genuine reason.” The GDS committee has recommended 2.5 per cent hike in basic pay of rural postal employees along with maternity leave benefits for women employees, proper space to work and all other welfare benefits that are given to regular employees, Parashar claimed. There are over 1.55 lakh post offices, including 1.3 lakh rural post offices. There are around 2.7 lakh GDS who handle operations such as money remittances, delivery of Aadhaar and MGNREGA payments in rural post offices, an AIGDSU official said. “GDS handle 89 per cent of postal services and generate 60-70 per cent of total revenue for Department of Posts but we get only 15-20 per cent of share in the expenses. The salary of GDS is very low. We want the government to implement committee report without any delay,” AIGDSU General Secretary S S Mahadevaiah said. The union has support of about 1.8 lakh GDS, Mahadevaiah said. The NFPE is also demanding filing up of various vacant positions, payment of revised wages and arrears to casual, part-time, contingent employees and daily rated mazdoors as per 6th and 7th central pay commission (CPC).

POSTAL CASUAL LABOURERS STRUGGLE IN TAMILNADU STRIKE DECLARED BY NFPE CIRCLE CO-ORDINATING COMMITTEE FAST IN FRONT OF CPMG OFFICE

POSTAL CASUAL LABOURERS STRUGGLE IN TAMILNADU

STRIKE DECLARED BY NFPE CIRCLE CO-ORDINATING COMMITTEE

FAST IN FRONT OF CPMG OFFICE CALLED OFF

MOST INSPIRING STRUGGLE IN THE HISTORY OF CASUAL LABOURERS.

            As per the decision taken by the Central Working Committee of All India Postal Casual , Partime , Contingent and Contract Workers Federation , the fast infront of Chief PMG office Chennai commenced on 27th June 2017 demanding revision of wages of Casual Labourers with effect from 01.01.2006 and 01.01.2016 as per orders issued by Postal Directorate. Along with leaders of Casual Labour Federation , leaders of NFPE Circle Co-ordinating Committee (CCC) , Confederation State Committee also joined the programme extending full support and solidarity. The programme was organised under the leadership of NFPE CCC Tamilnadu Circle. More than 1000 casual workers participated in the struggle. Chief PMG held two round discussions with Circle Secretaries of NFPE on 27th June. CPMG took a stand that Directorate orders are not implemented in any circle and challenged our leaders to produce copies of the orders issued by Divisions in other circles. Next day morning Circle leaders produced before the Assistant Director ,  copies of orders issued and implemented in many divisions of Kerala , Andhra and Telangana including Vijayawada Region where the CPMG was working as PMG prior to his promotion as CPMG Tamilnadu. Understanding that his arguments stands demolished by NFPE Circle Unions , the CPMG , instead showing the courage to face the NFPE leaders again in the discussion table , suddenly left  Chennai (ran away !!) without intimating the leaders. It is learnt that he will not be available in Chennai for next four days.  NFPE COC held an emergent meeting and decided to declare one day strike on 13th July 2017 protesting against the negative stand of the Circle administration and demanding immediate wage revision of Casual Labourers. Accordingly 14 days legal notice for the strike was served on 28th June 2017. Entire employees of Tamilnadu Circle  (P3 , P4 , R3 , R4 , Admin , Postal Accounts , SBCO , GDS and Casual Labourers)  will go on strike for the cause of Casual Labourers declaring — “an injury to one is an injury to all” !!!. As strike is declared , NFPE CCC decided to call off the fast in front of CPMG office and the mass fast ended at 5 PM on 28th June with thundering slogans.

            The Fast was inaugurated by Com M.Durai Pandian , General Secretary , Confederation Tamilnadu state. Com: T.K.Rangarajan , MP (CPIM) and Shri R.S.Bharati , MP (DMK) addressed the programme. National leaders of Casual Labour Federation Coms: M.Krishnan (President) Y.Nagabhushanam (Working President) P.Mohan (General Secretary) D.Sivagurunathan (CHQ Treasurer) S.Balamurugan (CHQ OGS) alongwith NFPE leaders Coms: J.Ramamurthy (CHQ President P3 & CS P3 ) B.Paranthaman (President CCC NFPE) G.Kannan (Convenor CCC  NFPE) Angel Sathyanathan (Chairman , Women’s Committee) participated in the fast. Com A.G.Pasupathy , veteran leader of P&T Trade Union movement (86 years) participated on two days. Coms: K.Raghavendran (Ex-SG NFPE & GS AIPRPA) K.V.Sreedharan (Ex-GS P3) K.Regupathy ( Asst SG NFPE) A.Veeramani (AGS P3 CHQ) R.B.Suresh (CS AIPAEA) K.R.Ganesan (Circle President R3 ) Dhananjay (CS AIPEU -GDS) Santhoshkumar (President , AIPAEA CHQ) attended and addressed the gathering.

Venkatesan (Income Tax Employees  Federation)Leaders of AIRF,  DREU and Confederation affiliates  also addressed. 

            The inspiring struggle of the most down trodden, marginalised and poor casual labourers of Tamilnadu will be written in red letters in the history of the struggles of Postal employees.

CALL OF AGITATIONAL PROGRAMMES BY NFPE

Dated : 19th June,2017

To
The Secretary,
Department of Posts,
Dak Bhawan.
New Delhi-110 001

SUB : CALL OF AGITATIONAL PROGRAMMES BY NFPE
Ref : Directorate letter No.08-12/2017-SR dated 16th June-2017.

While acknowledging the receipt of your letter cited above I , on behalf of NFPE and all its affiliated Unions/Associations , like to make it clear that we , as a responsible organisation , always stand for negotiated settlement and want to avoid confrontation with the administration. But we regret to note that in spite of our positive approach and patiently waiting for two years for redressal of our genuine grievances , things are not moving at Directorate level and same is the position with many circles also. For example :-

(1) No direct recruitment to fill up outside quota vacancies has taken place for the last three years. Examinations are being conducted, but final list of selected candidates are not published. 7th CPC has stated that there are 60000 vacancies remaining unfilled in Postal department as on 31.12.2015. Now the figure will be more than one lakh. Ahout 40% posts are lying vacant in each division and employees are suffering like anything. Are the employees responsible for this state of affairs? As DOP&T has repeatedly made it clear that there is no ban on filling up of vacant posts, who is responsible for three years delay in filling up of posts ?

(2) GDS Committee Report is submitted to Government on 24th November 2016. Even after seven months the recommendations are still under process. Approval of Communications Minister , Ministry of Personnel , Ministry of Law , Ministry of Finance , Cabinet approval – all these stages are pending . Kamalesh Chandra Committee took 18 months only for submitting the report , but it seems that Postal board will take two years for implementing the recommendations. Are the employees responsible for this unjustified delay ?

(3) Re-verification of membership of Departmental employees was completed in the year 2015. Even after two years results are not published. GDS re-verification of membership, it was due in 2015. Process of calling for applications from unions/associations completed. After that nothing is moving. What prevents the Postal Board from conducting membership verification of GDS and also declaring the result of departmental employees? Are we responsible for the two years delay?

(4) Regarding Cadre restructuring of Postal Group -C, we submitted a detailed memorandum requesting some modification’s and also uniform guidelines to all circles etc . Then Secretary, Department of Posts assured us that pending decision on our memorandum, the Cadre restructuring orders will be kept in abeyance. But the Directorate went ahead with unilateral implementation in certain circles putting a large section of Group-C employees to untold miseries. What prevented the department in honouring the assurance given by Secretary, Department of Posts?

(5) Event though repeated assurances were given that Cadre-restructuring proposal of left out categories will be implemented shortly , now almost four years are over after signing the Cadre-restructuring agreement between Postal Board and Staff side. Are we responsible for this unpardonable delay?

(6) Orders for revision of wages of casual labourers with effect from 01.01.2006 was issued by Directorate in January 2015 and again orders for revision of wages from 01.01.2016 was also issued. But till this date the Directorate orders are not implemented in Tamilnadu Circle. What prevents the Directorate to make the CPMG Tamilnadu Circle to implement Directorate orders ? Is CPMG Tamilnadu circle superior to Secretary , Department of Posts ?

(7) There are many other issues also which remains unsettled for years together due to the indifferent attitude of the Postal Board.

In short, we feel that things are not moving at Directorate level and there is paralysis in file movement and decision making. We want things to move and staff grievances settled in a time -bound manner. Instead of assurances, we want result-oriented action

I once again assure you that we are ready to call- off the proposed agitational programmes , provided the department come forward for a satisfactory , result-oriented negotiated settlement on all the demands raised by us in our memorandum .

Yours Faithfully,

R.N.PARASHAR
Secretary General

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
