Dear Friends and Comrades,
Meeting of the Postal Joint Council of Action was held on 11.11.2014 at New Delhi. Shri D. Theagarajan, Secretary General, FNPO presided. Com. R. N. Parashar, Secretary General, NFPE presented agenda items for discussion. General Secretaries of affiliated Unions/Associations of NFPE & FNPO attended. Com. M. Krishnan, Ex-Secretary General of NFPE was also present in the meeting. PJCA reviewed the progress in settlement of 39 points charter of demands submitted to Secretary, Department of Posts on 28.08.2014. PJCA came to the unanimous conclusion that not even a single issue is settled by the Government and Department. Employees are suffering but authorities are turning a deaf year towards their genuine demands. Rome is burning but Neros are fiddling.
None of our demand is unjustified. Five lakhs Postal and RMS employees including Gramin Dak Sewaks and Casual, Part-time, contingent employees cannot remain as mute spectators. There is a limit for our patience. Government and Postal Board are treating our patience as our weakness.
Taking into consideration all the above aspects, the PJCA unanimously took the following decision.
1. Entire five lakhs employees of the Department of Posts will go on indefinite strike from the third week of February 2015, if the demands are not settled before 31.12.2014.
2. The date of the indefinite strike will be declared in the 4th December 2014 Parliament March.
3. Every effort should be made by all All India/Circle/Divisional Unions to ensure maximum participation of employees in the Parliament March. Minimum 20000 employees should participate in the March. All should bring flags and banners.
4. Laaders of INTUC, CITU, AITUC & JCM National Council staff side will be invited to address the Parliament March.
5. Next PJCA meeting will be held on 03.12.2014 at 5 PM to decide the date of indefinite strike.
Let us march ahead with Determination and courage. This is time to show your sincerity towards the cause of five lakhs employees of the Department of Posts. Let us make the parliament March a Historic success. Let us unite together and make the indefinite strike a Thundering success. Let the Government and Postal Board understand that we are not Dumb-Driven cattle. We are workers and not beggars.
AWAKE! ARISE!! UNITE!!
Come in the Thousands to the Parliament March
Let us declare the indefinite strike in the presence of 20000 Postal Employees on 4th December 2014
