DIRECTORATE ORDER ISSUED ON REVISION OF WAGE STRUCTURE OF GDS
EXISTING INCUMBENT BPMs SHOULD BE PLACED IN THE REPLACEMENT TRCA SLABS CORRESPONDING TO THE PRE-REVISED TRCA
NEW TRCA SLAB CORRESPONDING TO 87.5 POINTS; 112.5 POINTS; & 125 POINTS HAS TO BE ASSESSED AFRESH WITH REFERENCE TO THE WORKLOAD
THE WORKLOAD ASSESSMENT WILL NATURALLY BE MADE AS PER THE ORDERS OF DIRECTORATE DATED 15/12/2009 STIPULATING 20,000/- CASH HANDLING IN A MONTH IS 1 POINT – THIS WILL REDUCE THE POINTS OF WORKLOAD IN MANY PLACES
THOSE WHO ARE IN PLACES WITH 75 POINTS AND GOT EQUIVALENT TRCA SLAB OF Rs. 2745-50-4245 AND THOSE WHO ARE AT 100 POINTS AND GOT THE TRCA SLAB OF 3660-70-5760 WILL NOT FACE ANY REDUCTION OF WAGES. BUT IF THOSE WHO ARE ASSESSED WITH BELOW 100 POINTS ARE PLACED IN 3200-60-5000 SLAB, THEY WILL FACE REDUCTION OF WAGES. IF SOME ARE ASSESSED WITH 112.5 OR 125 POINTS, THEY WILL GET THE HIGHER SLAB OF 4115-75-6365 AND 4575-85-7125. HOWEVER, WITH THE HARSH REVISION OF NORMS FOR CASH HANDLING AS PER 15/12/2009 ORDERS, IT IS AFRAID THAT WORKLOAD WILL BE ASSESSES LESS ONLY.
AIPEDEU CHQ HAS ALREADY WRITTEN TO DEPARTMENT OPPOSING THE ARBITRARY FIXATION OF NORMS @ 20,000/- CASH FOR 1 POINT. IT HAS ALSO OPPOSED THE EXCLUSION OF CASH REMITTANCES WITH THE ACCOUNT OFFICES FROM COMPUTING POINTS OF WORK LOAD. NFPE ALSO OPPOSES THE UNILATERAL FIXATION OF WORK NORMS FOR CASH HANDLING WITHOUT ANY DISCUSSION WITH THE GDS UNION OR BY IGNORING THE VIEW POINTS OF GDS UNION AND FEDERATIONS BEFORE THE GOPINATH COMMITTEE ON THIS ISSUE.
NFPE ENDORSES THE CALL GIVEN BY THE GDS UNION CWC MEETING HELD AT JAMNAGAR FOR:
- Holding of divisional level conventions in December 2009.
- Intensive demonstration/Hunger fast on 20-1-2010 at all levels.
- Holding of State level conventions in January – February 2010.
- National level Convention / Conference in February – March 2010.
NFPE CALLS UPON THE ENTIRETY OF POSTAL REGULAR EMPLOYEES TO EXTEND TOTAL SUPPORT TO THE ABOVE CALL OF THE GDS UNION CHQ AND MAKE THE PROGRAMMES A RESOUNDING SUCCESS.
