Madam,

Sub: - Issues arising out of implementation of L1, L2 concept in RMS – request for discussions – reg.

As you are aware the L1, L2 concept has been implemented in RMS w.e.f. 15.02.2012. Almost one and a half month is over now. During the January 2012 strike discussions, it was assured that any issues arising out of implementation of the L1, L2 concept, will be discussed with the staff side. Earlier when speed post hub system was introduced a committee under your chairpersonship has been constituted by the Directorate with Secretary General of NFPE and FNPO and staff side has been given enough opportunity to submit and discuss the problems relating to speed post hub system. Finally the following consensus was also arrived at.
(a)   Wherever required, more intra – circle hubs will be opened. Chief PMG’s have been directed to submit proposals. Staff side also submitted its proposal.
(b)   Regarding the change of administrative jurisdiction to RMS Superintendents, instructions were issued to the Chief PMGs to decide the issue at their own level.

Based on the above decisions most of the issues relating to speed post hub could be settled, but still in some circles the Chief PMGs have not taken any result-oriented action. This needs further discussions at Directorate level.

Now after implementation of L1, L2 many issues have cropped up which are to be discussed urgently for finding out remedial measures. Based on the experience at field level during the last one and a half month period, the staff side submit the following suggestions for immediate discussion and settlement with regard to L1, L2.

(a)   There is an urgent need to convert certain existing L2 hubs into L1 in each circle. Similarly the necessity of opening of some new L1 hub at some new locations is also required. The staff side is ready to submit its proposal.
(b)   Regarding closing of bags direct bags are to be closed from L2 to the L1 (to which it is mapped) and also to all other L2 offices under the same L1, to avoid delay and accumulation for mails at L1.
(c)    Direct bags are to be closed from all L1 to all other L2 (under other L1) also to avoid delay and heavy accumulation of mails at L1 offices.
(d)   Inspite of oral and written assurance given by Secretary, Department of Posts, certain CPMGs/PMGs are trying to transfer the staff outside their headquarters. Clear instructions should be issued to all CPMGs/PMGs to avoid transfer of staff outside their headquarters without request.

In view of the above, we request you to
(i)        either to revive the MNOP committee constituted under the chairmanship of Member (Operations) and hold discussion with staff side to arrive at a concensus.
(ii)      or to hold discussion with the staff side at your level.

This may be done at an early date.

We hope that through mutual discussions most of issues arising out of implementation of L1, L2 and remaining issues regarding speedpost hubs can be resolved amicably.

Awaiting favourable response.

Yours faithfully,

Sub: - Undue delay in settlement of agreed items on the Charter of Demands.

A kind attention is invited to the discussions we had during strike Charter of demands and also further assurances to us that unlike in the past whatever assured during discussions will be implemented without any delay.

But to our dismay, many of the assured items are still not disposed of favourably and even the clarifications assured to be issued are still pending. Further it is learnt that the Internal Finance is rejecting the assurances given by Minister for state for communication and also the Secretary, Department of Posts. which causes a serious concern.  The following are the few items in which categorical assurance had been ensured in the minutes of the meeting and also during discussions.

27.  Issuing orders on the items finalized by the Postmen committee and also follow up action on certain items to be referred to work study unit.
28.  Cadre-restructuring and settlement of Group D and sorter anomaly issues relating to Postal Accounts.

30.  Examination of CRC & EPP norms.

Apart from the above, the minutes of the standing committee (JCM) and also the reply to the items already discussed in the strike charter but included on JCM items are yet to be issued.

It is constrained to inform that in the event of non settlement of the above items within one month we have decided to observe one day token fast in front of Directorate by all the General Secretaries.

We trust that your will effectively intervene and maintain tranquility in service.
