Indefinite strike from 17.01.2012 by postal employees
The Joint Council of Action consisting of the NFPE, FNPO and its AIPEDEU took a dispassionate review of the entire developments and came to the conclusion that a direct action has become unavoidable before further damage is done. The JCA, therefore, decided that an indefinite strike has become absolutely necessary to meet the situation squarely. A charter of demands consisting of broad based issues of all sections of postal employees and GDS demands. Grant status as Central Government Civil Servants to Gramin Dak Sevaks employees for all purposes including service matters, pay scale, increment, allowances, pension, promotion, leave, bonus, trade unions rights and other terminal benefits. Scrap the new Recruitment rules for appointment of postmen by 25%outside recruitment which curtails the promotional avenues of GDS and restore the previous Recruitment rules. Enhance the bonus ceiling of GDS to 3500/- at par with regular employees. Withdraw the tightened norms for cash handling, stamp sale, and other norms for assessing the workload of BPMs, stop reduction of TRCA in case of reduction in workload. Modify the orders restricting compassionate appointment of GDS. Scrap the newly notified "GDS Conduct &Engagement Rules" and restore the previous "GDS Conduct and Employment Rules". Fill up all GDS Mailmen Posts in RMS. Providing norms for NREGS and RPLI. Inspite of assurances to reconsider the orders, no favourable orders have been issued so far, hence a CHARTER OF DEMANDS was prepared and a well thought decision was taken to serve notice for indefinite strike to begin on 17.01.2017 at 6.00 AM, if the demands are not met by that time, which alone would be able to thwart the aggressive moves of the administration which are hitting the interests of the employees and the department hard. Strike notice will be served on the Secretary Department of Posts on 15.12.2011. Copies of the strike notice and the charter of demands are enclosed.
Comrades, this is time that serious preparations are made to make the strike a total success. Some guidelines which are only illustrative and not exhaustive are laid down here under. More programmes and activities may be devised locally:
· ORGANISE MASS DEMONSTRATIONS / DHARNAS IN FRONT OF ALL CIRCLE / REGIIONAL / DIVISIONAL OFFICES ON 15.12.2011.
· ALL INDIA LEADERS OF CENTRAL JCA WILL SIT ON HUNGER FAST IN FRONT OF DAK BHAWAN ON 26.12.2011.

Remmittance of Quota and Dues:
Comrades, the position of receipt of quota by the CHQ is again very disheartening. The Divisional/Branch union get their subscription every month from the DDO's but the remittance of quota to CHQ is rather very casual. The Divisional Presidents and Secretaries will please ensure timely remittance of quota.
