Dear Comrades/Colleagues/ Friends
GDS parliament march of this 11th December is a challenging issue for us. GDS are the backbone of Postal Workers’ Struggle and still the alive symbol of exploitation which started during British Raj. They are on the war path and their final showdown is on this 11th December on the roads of
It is related with the prestige and dignity of our mighty National Federation
of Postal Employees-NFPE- a symbol of class oriented struggle for the working
class as a whole and for the postal workers throughout the country in
particular. 89% of our rural post offices are being managed by these poor GDS
employees. Yet they have not got the justice and other benefits at par with the
departmental employees. They have not yet being treated as regular employees.
Every year central govt. claims proud privilege of opening one after another
Post Office, even in the remotest and far flung areas of the country, but the
responsibility of running them falls on those helpless GDS employees whose
allowances ( not salary) cannot buy them even two square meals a day in such a
market of sky rocketing inflation. Once they are phased out of the ambit of the
Department of Posts, it will be a simple formality to wind up the major areas
of postal network by the Govt of New Delhi within a month or two. So we
must dedicate ourselves for a greater form of struggle and ensure our fight for
justice by MASSIVE PARTICIPATION IN THE PARLIAMENT MARCH OF THIS 11TH
DECEMBER. Unless we trade the path of struggle we cannot protect the interest
of the GDS employees and include them within the ambit of 7th CPC. Other
related issues also cannot be settled. India
Circle Secretaries/ Regional Secretaries are requested to make all out preparations right from now to join en-masse in the March. To ensure physical presence in large numbers IMMEDIATELY BOOK UP/ DOWN TICKETS TO NEW DELHI WITHOUT TAKING ANY RISK AND MAKE THIS MARCH A GRAND SUCCESS.
WITH COMRADELY GREETINGS.
