MAKE THE 25th JUNE CONFEDERATION CALL A GRAND SUCCESS

ORGANISE EFFECTIVELY THE CALL OF CONFEDERATION

 

25.06.2008 – 3 HOUR MASS SQUATTING [MASS DHARNA]

 

In order to focus the attention on the following six issues over which we have demanded modification of 6th CPC Recommendations and rejection of which will lead to industrial action by the CG Employees,  the Confederation of CG Employees has issued a call for observing MASS SQUATTING [MASS DHARNA] FOR 3 HOURS on 25.06.2008. According to the local convenience of Postal Employees the divisional and branch unions of NFPE are requested to hold the Programme on 25.06.2008 for three hours of their local convenience. Mobilize Postal Workers in large number and observe the programme very effectively.

 

DEMANDS TO BE FOCUSSED

 

1.                  Recomputation of Minimum Wage

2.                  Reconstruction of Pay Bands

3.                  Revise fitment formula to a minimum of 2.625 of basic pay

4.                  Enhancing the rate of increment

5.                  Promotion benefit

6.                  No contractorization of Gr.D functions.

 

1.      The computation of Minimum Wage by the 6th CPC is faulty and amounts to distortion of 15th ILC Norms.  The Need Based Minimum Wage shall be calculated accordingly. Even according to 5th CPC NNP Formula it cannot be less than 7400/-. This has to be recomputed in accordance with the demand of the Staff Side submitted to the Cabinet Secretary.

2.      The 6th CPC itself has stated in the Report that it has observed the formula of taking the minimum of the highest pay scale of the Pay Band concerned for constructing the pay band. But in practice the Pay Commission failed to adhere to its own formula but constructed the pay bands based on the minimum of the lowest pay scale in pay bands. This has to be reconstructed as per the Staff Side Demand.

3.      The Group 'A' officers are all given a minimum fitment benefit of 2.625 times of their basic pay as on 1.1.2006 by the pay commission. The same yardstick has to be applied for all employees and a minimum fitment benefit of 2.625 times shall be ensured in order to ensure the announced 40% pay rise to each and every employee.

4.      The rate of increment has to be at least 3.5% in the background of the understanding reached to revise the wages of public sector employees once in 5 years and no recommendation as far as the central government employees have been made by the 6th CPC. Otherwise the wage gap between these two sections will further widen.

5.      A minimum rise of 10% rise shall be ensured on promotion.

6.      The present day Group D functions shall not be outsourced after upgradation of Group D into Group C as per he Pay Commission recommendations.

 

The Resounding Success of the above Confederation Programme will be a clear warning to the Central Government that if the genuine modifications sought by the Staff Side are not accepted then a show down with the CG Employees shall become unavoidable – Therefore the rank and file leadership at all levels are requested to make the 25th June 3 Hour Mass Squatting [Mass Dharna] a tremendous success.

The plan is to computerize all departmental post offices and half of the EDBOs in rural and it is also assessed that this will require business process reengineering, administrative and operational restructuring to provide enabling requirement for technology induction. There is mention that the Human Resource issues also need to be dealt with. In addition it is envisaged to create a Data Bank on the profile and availability of System Administrators at all levels so as to ensure their upgradation of skills as a part of ongoing training programme. However the NFPE would be shortly writing to Postal Directorate for involving the Staff Side in the matter by providing complete information in this matter and to incorporate staff side viewpoints in the decision-making.
