NFPE & AIPEU-GDS DECLARE
GDS MARCH TO COMMUNICATIONS MINISTER’S OFFICE (SANCHAR BHAWAN) ON 27TH JULY 2017 THURSDAY 11AM AT NEW DELHI
About 5000 Gramin Dak Sevaks will march to Sanchar Bhawan (Communications Minister’s office) demanding:
1. Immediate implementation of Positive recommendations of Kamalesh Chandra Committee Report on GDS. Grant Civil Servant Status to Gramin Dak Sevaks.
2. Conduct GDS membership verification immediately as more than five year is over since last verification. Stop patronizing Govt. sponsored unions.
As you are aware, the Kamalesh Chandra Committee on GDS has submitted its report to Government on 24.11.2016. Now six months are over. The report is still pending in the Postal Board. After the approval of Postal Board the report is to be approved by Communications Minister, Department of Personnel, Law Ministry, Finance Ministry and finally Cabinet.
Government is trying to delay the implementation of the report indefinitely. It will take another one year, as per the existing file movement at Directorate. The recognised GDS Union has miserably failed and called off the indefinite strike without any settlement. Both recognised GDS Union and BMS union are indirectly supporting the Government’s plan to delay the GDS committee report and are cheating the GDS employees. NFPE and AIPEU-GDS cannot allow this situation to go unchallenged.
Similarly GDS membership verification process is also indefinitely delayed, after calling for application from the unions/Association. Already five years are over after the last membership verification. The recognised GDS Union is afraid of membership verification and has given a letter to the Postal Board to postpone the membership verification. BMS Union also don’t want verification as they will not get recognition. Thus, both recognised GDS Union and BMS Union are playing with the Government and they cannot conduct any serious agitational programmes against the Government. Only NFPE & AIPEU-GDS can fight against the negative attitude of the NDA Government.
NFPE & AIPEU – GDS has decided to organize serious agitaitonal programmes on the above two GDS demands culminating in strike. Before declaring the strike date, NFPE & AIPEU-GDS has decided to organize a massive GDS March to the Communication’s Minister’s office (Sanchar Bhawan) on 27th July 2017 at 11 AM. About 5000 Gramin Dak Sevaks from all the Circles (States) will participate in the historic Sanchar Bhawan March.
NFPE & AIPEU-GDS (CHQ) calls upon the entire Postal employees, especially Gramin Dak Sevaks, to mobile maximum number of employees and make the Sanchar Bhawan March a thundering success.
We shall not rest, till GDS employees demands are settled.
