All CHQ Office Bearers,

Dear Comrades,

q Confederation Meeting: The National Executive Committee Meeting of the Confederation of Central Government Employees has been held at New Delhi on 05-06-2007 under the Presidentship of Com. S.K. Vyas. After long discussions, it was decided to observe one day Token Strike during the first / second week of August 2006 demanding settlement on the following issues.

(i) Grant of interim relief with minimum of Rs. 1000/-.
(ii) Date of effect of the 6th CPC should be 01-01-2006.
(iii) Formation of Judicial Committee to effect wage revision in case of Gramin Dak Sevaks in Postal Dept.
(iv) Ending discrimination in the matter of compassionate appointments.
(v) Scrap the order of abolition of post, stop downsizing, privatisation and contractization.
(vi) Withdrawal of the new pension scheme.
(vii) Regularise the casual / contingent/daily rated workers.
(viii) No replacements of CGHS by Medicare insurance.
(ix) Remove the quantum ceiling on Bonus of Rs. 2500/- and effect payment on the basis of actual pay drawn.
(x) Implementation of pending arbitration awards.

It was also decided to approach other Organisations and Federations for a united movement and the date of one-day token strike will be announced after exhorting efforts with other Federations / Unions but before the end of this month.

It is also resolved to observe 28-06-2007 as 'STRUGGLE COMMENCEMENT DAY' by holding demonstrations at all work spots.

All the Circle Secretaries are requested to cause necessary action in their circle for the effective conduct of 28-06-2007 programme and intimate compliance reports to CHQ.

The copy of the Confederation Circular is enclosed herewith. All are requested to popularise the demand by issuing circular in regional language.

q Observe 4th Death Anniversary of Com. K. Adinarayana: The NFPE has directed all the branches to observe the 4th Death Anniversary of Com. K. Adinarayana on 17th June 2007 as "UNITY DAY". His contributions to the working class be remembered on the day and let us salute and pay tribute to our beloved leader. All are requested to observe the day as "Unity Day" to strengthen our movement further to restrict the attacks.

q Filling up of Residual Vacancies: The Directorate vide its order No. 60-5/2007-SPB.I dated 15-05-2007 directed to fill up all the vacant posts under residual categories in Postman / Postal Assistants etc. as per Recruitment Rules and also directed to send proposals if any required for revival of the posts.

However, I feel that the gravity of the issue is not properly known and rigorous monitoring at Circle level is lacking. The unfilled posts earmarked for LGOs in PA cadre since 2000-01 to till date should be filled up immediately as per the latest orders. In many circles, they have simply abolished such posts as those posts were kept vacant for more than one year. Since the exam was held and also the process of filling up the posts had been started, such posts should not be brought under axing. Hence the Directorate sought proposals for such posts for revival in case of earlier abolition. If those posts were not abolished but simply kept in skeleton, such posts should be filled up immediately as per the Recruitment Rules. (i.e. If no GDS is eligible, the posts may be filled up by open market methods.)

All Circle Secretaries are requested to verify the position of residual vacancies and cause appropriate action to fill up them immediately as per the orders cited in para supra. A report on this may please be sent to CHQ.

q GDS Working Committee Meeting: The Central Working Committee meeting of the AIPEDE Union has been held at Aggarwal Dharmshala, Model Town, New Delhi on 03-06-2007 & 04-06-2007. Com. K.V. Sridharan, General Secretary inaugurated the open session. In his speech, he detailed the exact position on recognition and the need for the unity to counter the onslaughts on GDS and also to take serious efforts for the affiliation with NFPE in future. Com. C.C. Pillai, Secretary General, NFPE explained the position in detail and asserted that the NFPE has not expelled the GDS Union as alleged and the need to fight unitedly to modify the stand of the Government on the recognition of Federation. Many other leaders like Com. B.G. Tamhankar, Com. R.A.P. Singh, Com. G.S.Asiwal, Com. N. Balu greeted the occasion with their address.

q General Secretary on Tour: As I am attending Circle Working Committee meeting of Andhra Pradesh Circle from 16-06-2007 to 17-06-2007, I will not be available at Headquarters from 11-06-2007. I will be returning only in the last week of this month. Com. Somenath Mukherjee, Deputy General Secretary will officiate as General Secretary during this period. So, let us meet in the first week of July 2007 or before.

With greetings,

Yours fraternally,

K.V. Sridharan
General Secretary
