               * CADRE RESTRUCTURING AGREEMENT SIGNED *

                 At last after several round of protracted negotiations with the administration, JCM Staff side, Departmental council ( NFPE & FNPO) has signed the cadre restructuring proposal. The staff side has tried to the best of its ability to make maximum improvement in the proposal. In spite of our hard bargaining we could not achieve 100 percent success. Our demand for separate higher pay scale for PO& RMS Accountants, Creation of separate cadre for System Administrators or grant of special pay/allowance, bringing MTS also under cadre restructuring etc is not accepted by the administration. Regarding Postmaster Cadre after much bargaining, it is agreed to examine our claim for higher pay scale after the present proposal is approved by the government.

                  As Govt has already appointed 7th CPC and the Pay Commission has already published the questionnaire, any further delay in completing the cadre restructuring will adversely affect the interest of Postal employees. We will take up the remaining issues, which are not agreed by the administration in the cadre restructuring committee with the 7thCPC in our memorandum and make one more effort to get a favourable recommendation.

                  Taking into consideration all the above aspects and also keeping in mind the larger interest of the employees, we have decided to sign the agreement

Copy of the agreement is published below.

The Salient features of the agreement are as follows :
1. Number of LSG posts will increase from 8 % to 22 %
2. Number of HSG II  posts will increase from 2 % to 12 %
3. Number of HSG I  posts will increase from 1.5 % to 4 %
4. After completion of 2 years in HSG I the official will be promoted to 4800 GP (Non-functional Basis)
5. The above proposal will be applicable to RMS, Circle Office and SBCO in the same ratio
6. Postman/Mail guard will get the same ratio of promotion.

  The present proposal is to be approved by Postal Board, DoPT & Finance Ministry. We will make all out effort to get the proposal implemented at an early date.


                                                                        Yours sincerely

HOIST MAY DAY FLAG - HOLD MAY DAY MEETINGS ON 01-05-2014


LET’S CELEBRATE THE ‘MAY DAY’ IN A GRAND MANNER!

Dear Comrades,

The voice, which was strangulated and silenced long long ago in the distant city of Chicago, is now echoing in the hearts and throats of millions of workers and common people across the continents, manifesting the burning desire to fight for the rights. The struggle for ‘working hours’, which shook the world, transcended and transformed into a symbol of struggle for establishment of egalitarian society and fighting spirit of working class across the nations. May Day beckons us to get inspired and imbibe that spirit of struggle and sacrifice!
The natural resources, the collective property of mankind, are being swallowed by the capitalists with the aid and abetment of Ruling Class in the guise of Globalization and Economic development. They have engulfed the permanent jobs and are extracting the work from the manual labour in the name of Contractorisation and casualization at dead cheap rates. The sweat of farmers and workers has no value in the eyes of these exploiters. The Gobble’s campaign that there is no substitute for Capitalism has had its great ill effect on the workers and employees!  Parallel campaign that the Socialism has failed and that it is not visible even in the distant vicinity is being thrust into the psyche of the general public.
We have to recapitulate the famous verses of Sri Sri, the great peoples’ poet of this century, which are to be engraved in ebony permanently.  “The Kingdoms built on earth, the artificial Statutes enacted by the Monarchs and by the egoistic, have crumbled like a palace of playing cards, with the tsunami of forces of working class, far and near” This reminds every one that any system which is inimical and exploitative isbound to crash and collapse.
The motive and end of Capital is to earn profit. The capitalism will never hesitate to denude the Mother Earth and green nature for the sake of profit. The un-quenching greed of capitalists for profit has become hazardous to the environment resulting in the pollution of air and water bodies. The global –warming is causing disorders in environment and, in effect, posing danger to the very existence of mankind. The changes in the environment due to pollution are pushing the agriculture and the farmers into catastrophe.
The accumulation of wealth in a few hands, the growth of corporate sector and the fall in the purchasing capacity of the workers and employees are the indication of the growing unrest and degradation of the society. Education and medical facilities are unreachable to the common man. A place to dwell in is still a distant dream to so many employees and workers.
                At this juncture, the Central Government employees should discharge their duty with full awareness and understanding. To regain the lost pension right, to retain the health facilities, to ensure the periodical wage revision for every five years, to get the DA merger, to achieve status to the Grameen Dak Sevaks, etc., the Central Government employees have no other alternative but to tread the path of struggle in the coming days on the face of adversarial political and economic policies.
Oppose the neo-liberal economic policies, which intend to privatize every Sector and mortgage the future of employees and common people to the Capitalists. As enlightened sections of the society we have to pin down and expose the deceit perpetrated on the people and Working Class in the name of Globalization and Development.  With all the unity, awareness and conscientiousness, we the Central Government employees, should resist and stop these anti-employee and anti-people policies. Let’s take pledge on this May Day to strive hard for Better life and brighter tomorrow for all and to demand our rightful share as a stakeholder in the process of development, defeating the nefarious designs of the protagonists of neo-liberal economic policies.
                With Revolutionary Greetings!

DEPARTMENTALISATION OF GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS (GDS)  AND INCLUSION OF GDS UNDER 7TH  CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION.

FIRST HEARING OF THE COURT CASE ON 7TH MAY 2014

 HON’BLE DELHI HIGH COURT ISSUED NOTICE TO THE GOVERNMENT AND DEPARTMENT OF POSTS.
          As already reported the Hon’ble Delhi High Court has issued notice to Government and Department of Posts in the Writ Petition filed by NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) in the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India which stands transferred to Delhi High Court for grant of Civil Servant status and inclusion of GDS in 7th Central Pay Commission.  Next hearing of the case is posted for 7th May, 2014.  In the Writ Petition filed by NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) following are the main prayers:
(1)     Give direction to the Government of India and Department of Posts to grant Civil Servant Status to GDS as per the 1977 Supreme Court Judgement and grant all the benefits of the Departmental Employees.
(2)     Include GDS under the purview of 7th CPC.
(3)     Quash the GDS conduct & Engagement Rules 2011.
          Government of India, Department of Posts shall have to file its reply in the High Court.  Now the files have started moving in the Directorate and                DOP&T.
Recognised GDS Union (Mahadevaiah) has no role to play:
          Recognised GDS Union (Mahadevaiah) has already signed an agreement with the Department of Posts accepting separate committee for GDS and accordingly Government has EXCLUDED  GDS from the purview of the terms of reference of the 7th Central Pay Commission.  NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) is fighting both organisationally and legally for Departmentalisation and for inclusion of GDS under 7th CPC.
          Shri. Mahadevaiah wrote in his journal (April 2014 Issue) and website supporting separate committee for GDS and claimed that separate committee is better than 7th Pay Commission.  In his journal and website he wrote as follows:
          -  One man GDS committee more independent than a judge heading a pay commission with other members” (!!!!).  Thus Shri. Mahadevaiah has fully justified separate committee for GDS and he claimed that he has signed a “respectable agreement” by accepting separate one-man committee!!
          Let Shri.Mahadevaiah and his Recognised GDS Union support the Government and Department of Posts, by cheating three lakhs GDS by signing their “ death warrant ” in the name of “ respectable agreement”.  NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) will not compromise with the Government and shall continue its struggle both legally and organizationally.

SHRI MAHADEVAIAH DON’T WANT THE SUPPORT OF
 DEPARTMENTAL EMPLOYEES

            Shri.Mahadevaiah, General Secretary of the recognised GDS Union has requested the Department of Posts NOT TO ALLOW other Federations and Unions to take up the issues relating to the Gramin Dak Sevaks.  As Shri. Mahadevadevaiah has helped the Government and Department by accepting separate committee for GDS, the Department accepted the request of Shri. Mahadevaiah and issued orders.  It shows that Shri Magadevaiah don’t want the support of Departmental employees who are members of NFPE & FNPO.  NFPE & / AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) believes that the GDS demands can be achieved only with the full support and joint struggle of both GDS & of the Departmental employees. 
          This is the difference between the recognised GDS Union (Mahadevaiah) and AIPEU-GDS (NFPE).  LET THE GDS employees decide which union stands for the cause of GDS.

ALL GDS& DEPARTMENTAL EMPLOYES  BE READY TO FINISH THE RECOGNISED GDS UNION IN THE NEXT MEMBERSHIP VERIFICATION
          Recognition is not a licence to cheat the GDS employees.  Recognised GDS Union has signed an agreement with the Department accepting separate committee and thus admitting that GDS are not civil servants.  Thus recognized GDS Union’s role is over and it has no role to play hereafter.  NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) is challenging in the Delhi High Court the stand taken by the Department of Posts and the Recognised GDS Union (Mahadevaiah). 
          NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) calls upon all GDS Departmental Employees be ready to finish the “Recognised GDS Union” in the next membership verification.  We are sure that AIPEU-GDS (NFPE) shall become the NUMBER ONE  recognised GDS union in the next membership verification with flying colours. Days are not far away.

SECRETARY GENERAL
