Sub: Non-settlement of long pending demands.
A meeting of PJCA comprising NFPE, FNPO, AIPEU-GDS & NUGDS was held at NFPE office North Avenue Post Office Building, New Delhi on 16th November, 2016 under the presidentship of Shri D. Theagarajan Secretary General FNPO. All General Secretaries of both the Federations participated in the meeting. After threadbare discussion the following resolution, programme of action and Charter of Demand was finalized.
Postal Joint Council of Action (PJCA), views with grave concern the totally negative attitude of the Central Government in settling the common demands of the Central Government employees including increase in minimum wage and fitment formula and other modifications sought for by the National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) and JCM (NC) staff side.
This PJCA further notes that in the Postal department also due to the negative attitude of the Government and Postal administration long pending demands are remaining unsettled. None of the 7th CPC related demands of various cadres of Postal department are settled. Regularization of Gramin Dak Sevaks and grant of all benefits of regular employees on pro-rata basis is still pending. The New Pension Scheme (NPS) has created uncertainty among the employees recruited after 01.01.2004, about their pensionary benefits. Department has unilaterally issued orders for outsourcing booking and delivery of registered, speed post and express parcel post articles and engaging staff on each Sunday & holiday to deliver parcels of e-commerce companies . The task force committee recommendations are not yet dropped, no effective remedial measures are taken to streamline the functioning of CBS/CSI, revision of wages and payment of arrears of casual labourers from 01.01.2006 is still pending in many circles, more than 60000 vacancies in various cadres including promotional posts are remaining unfilled. Now due to monetization Scheme more difficulties are being faced by the staff due to lack of proper infrastructure and engaging staff beyond duty hours. All the above issues are agitating the minds of the employees for a long time.
The PJCA after reviewing the situation prevailing in the Postal department came to the unanimous conclusion that to settle the above issues, serious agitational programmes are to be launched. Accordingly the PJCA resolve to implement the following phased programme of action.
