RESOLUTION ON POSTAL DEMANDS AND
PROGRAMME OF ACTION
10th Federal Council of National Federation of Postal Employees

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. The Federal Council while appreciating the efforts being made by
Confederation of Central Government employees & Workers jointly with NJCA
to settle the demands calls upon the NJCA to organize higher form of trade
union action including revival of the deferred strike to get the demands
settled in a time-bound manner.

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. The task
force committee recommendations are not yet dropped, no effective remedial
measures are taken to streamline the functioning of CBS/CIS, 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. All the above issues are agitating the minds of
the employees for a long time.

department came to the unanimous conclusion that to settle the above issues,

Council resolve to implement the following phased pregramme of action, either

authorizes the Federal Executive to take follow up action
