ALL INDIA POSTAL ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES’ EMPLOYEES UNION GR ‘C’ AND ERSTWHILE GR ‘D’ CONGRATULATES WORKERS AND EXHIBIT RED SALUTES TO THE ADMINISTRATIVE WORKERS AS A WHOLE FOR THEIR ACTIVE PARTICIPATION IN NATIONWIDE STRIKE ON 2nd SEPTEMBER,2015.
As the part of the working class of India, they went on a one day strike for the day against skyrocketing prices of essential commodities, violation of labor laws, privatization of PSUs, demanding universal social security cover, removal of all ceilings of payment and eligibility of bonus etc.
In the Central Govt. employees’ front, the demands like wage revision w.e.f. 01.01.2014, wage revision in every 5 years’ after, 100% merger of DA, demanding filling up of vacant posts, scrapping of PFRDA Act, no outsourcing, contractorisation and privatization, removal of arbitrary ceiling on Compassionate appointments and demanding five promotions in our service carriers, have given a huge momentum in the field of our Central Govt. workers’ Strike. Not only that, we had demanded to bring the GDS employees within the ambit of the 7th CPC, was also a very important demand for which we strongly protested on the 2nd day of September,2015.
In every sector of ours including Postal, RMS, MMS Administrative offices and Branch offices, the strike response was overwhelming. We salute all sections of Postal Workers and feel proud of them for their sacrifices. It is only through their understanding and sustained struggles, we can protect and defend the rights of ours. Further phases of struggles are striking us very soon because of dilly-dally tactics and apathetic attitude of the Govt. of India regarding the genuine demands of the working class of India as a whole and the Central Govt. workers in particular.
Reports reaching to the CHQ of different unions of NFPE, are very encouraging which prompted me to write to you.
Maintain greater form of unity at all costs and keep your Gun powder dry for ensuing struggles. Victory, will of course, be ours. RED SALUTE TO ONE AND ALL, COMRADES.
