Ref: P3/JCA/01/2008                                       Dated- 09.01.2008

 

To,

 

Shri. I. M. G. Khan,

Secretary,

Department of Posts,

Dak Bhawan New Delhi - 110001

 

Sir,

 

Sub: Indifferent attitude in settling the serious and burning demands of Postal Group 'C' employees.

 

It in constrained to note that despite our repeated requests and demands to settle the burning problems concerning the Group 'C' employees through various correspondences and also in person, the genuine problems are not addressed so far.

 

Adding fuel to fire, the Directorate has caused instructions to all the Circle heads to disturb the FTP qualified officials from their present position and post them in delivery offices thereby causing unwarranted disturbances and placements in the middle of the tenure. The discrimination with in the LSG as if regular and FTP is deplorable. This instruction is violative to the principles of R.T, request transfer and connected statutory rules.

 

When we are pleading to set  right the irregularities in the notional promotion in LSG cadre and accord HSG II/HSG I promotion with retrospective effect since April 2007 as assured, it is still in initial stage in many circles. The affected seniors are retiring from service without availing due promotions. The irregularities in the notional promotion accorded in Orissa Circle has not been rectified so far.

 

The assurances given in resolving the shortage problem like allowing retired personnel to work in absentism, grant of incentive to WMT, RPLI, PLI work etc, liberal grant of OTA to operative staff and allotment of sufficient funds for clearance of pending bills have not been implemented in true spirit.

 

The serious and sensitive problem related to filling up of residual vacancies has not been implemented in many circles despite repeated assurances and the officials become victim of shortage. The assurance in withdrawing the retrograde orders of postponing the BCR promotion to those declined LSG promotion has also not been implemented. There are hump teen number of discussions we had on this issue.

 

Similarly, the assurances given in withdrawing the orders banning posting of Group 'C' official in single handed offices only once in the whole service has not been brought in to action. The plight of the PO & RMS Accounts qualified officials is still in doldrums and despite various judicial pronouncements to adhere the LSG Accountant Recruitment Rules 1976 and accord APM Accounts promotion, this has not been taken any note of. We have been frustrated to put forth the case many times resulted in futile.

 

In spite of non creation of Systems Administrators Posts and non providing better perks and pay scales based on the job nature but treated them just as   the Postal Assistants and utilised them optimumly in implementation of computerisation in the Post Offices, the sarcastic and insanity remarks contained in Directorate letter No. 44-05/2004 - Tech - KW dt. 22.10.07 that 'the permission to System Administrator to access databases is dangerous' causes serious wound. The impracticable order without any field knowledge causes irreparable hurt to the exploited categories of Systems Administrators working hard for computerisation in Post offices over a decade.

 

Therefore, we have decided to launch series of Trade Union programmes culminating to stoppage of work if our genuine demands are not immediately resolved besides withdrawing the retrograde orders issues on LSG postings, and Systems Administrators. The twenty points charter of demands is enclosed herewith.

 

It is requested to sort out the issues, implement the assurances and withdraw the arbitary, unilateral anti worker orders affecting the morale, hard work and honesty and ensure peace.

 

Soliciting immediate response

 

Yours faithfully,

PROGRAMME OF ACTION

 

18.01.08. Demonsration

 05.02.08    Dharna

 

Dear Comrades/Colleagues

 

The postal Group C employees are mounted under severe attacks one after another ignoring the sufferings we are having in Post Offices due to under staffing over six years. Adding salt to injury various new business activities without any norms, ethics or incentives are being launched. Our genuine demands are not properly taken care of.

 

The problems confronting us are multifying. On such vital issues like LSG, HSG II, HSG I promotions, the Circle Heads are lethargic and the department is unable to pull them to implement its own orders. There are more than ten thousand PA posts remains unfilled in many circles even after issue of orders simply by raising unwarranted clarifications. Even they are not attended by the Department and persuing them in a casual manner.

 

The Department on its own and without any talks or discussions is issuing various retrograde orders in the past like Declining LSG Promotion causes postponement of BCR, preventing second posting in same single handed Post offices, discrimination between regular and FTP LSG, sarcastic orders on the System Administrators etc. Our sincere, persistent endeavours to settle the issue have proved to be in fructuous.

 

We have been pushed to the wall to resist such onslaughts purported against the Group C employees. We have no other alternate except to launch series of agitational programmes against the wrong decisions, orders and lethargy in mitigating the agreed demands.

 

Therefore, we have decided to launch immediate following programmes with full determination for the Group C comrades who have been continuously exploited since 1999.

 

18.01.08 - Demonstration in front of all HOS/Divl offices/R.O/ Circle offices & sending Savigrams/Fax/ Postcard compaign.

 

05.02.08 - Dharna in front of D.O/R.O/C.O

 

(Further Programme will be decided later)

 

Text Of The Savingram/ Fax/ Postcard Compaign

 

"Withdraw all unilateral and arbitary orders mentioned in the 20 point charter of demands immediately AAA. Settle all agreed demands placed in April 2007 strike AAA Ensure peace and amity and avoid further confrontation AAA."

 

Addressed to:-

 

1.       Thiru A. Raja, Hon'ble Minister of communications & I.T. New Delhi - 110003.

2.       Sri I,.M.G. Khan, Secretary, Department of Posts, New Delhi - 110001

3.       Respective CHQ & Circle Unions.

 

The programme of action has been drawn based on the consultation of Federations which will endorse our call and further course of programme beginning with 'Non cooperation & Work to rule to indefinite strike will be decided with the consultations of Federations and other Unions.

 

It is therefore requested to that an impressive and effective Demonstration/ Dharna must be staged in front of the HO/D.O/R.O/C.O on 18.01.08 & 05.02.08 respectively and ensure maximum mobilisation. The task of campaigning, conducting the programme effectively and making it a success is the responsibility of the Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretaries and activists at the grass root level.

 

Let us prepare for the programme with seriousness and sincerity and stead fast efforts to ensure the programme a grand success to wrest the demands.

 

With struggle greetings,
