NATIONAL UNION OF POSTAL EMPLOYEES - GROUP 'C'
CENTRAL HEAD QUARTERS, NEW DELHI
Ref: P3/JCA/01/2008 Dated- 09.01.2008
PROGRAMME OF ACTION
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)
