The striking employee organizations, comprising national federation of postal employees (NFPE) federation of national postal organisation (FNPO) and All India Gramin Dak Sevak Union (AIGDSU), alleged that though they continued their GDS Indefinite Strike for the Tenth consecutive day, the Center is maintaining an irresponsible attitude in the matter.
In a statement, state convener of FNPO Johnson D Avokkaran and state convener of NFPE P K Muraleedharan said that the Center would be solely responsible for all the difficulties being faced by the public due to the strike. They said that Kamalesh Chandra Committee that made recommendations regarding postal employees had recommended that the Dak Sevaks working in the rural regions should be given some relief immediately. But the Center is dragging its feet over the recommendations for the past two years without making any decisions, they said. On Monday, the joint trade unions has hold protest march in all the postal divisions and on the same day, they were also make representations to governors in all the states.
Today, on 31.05.2018 all the affiliated unions (AIPEU GDS, AIGDSU, NUGDS, BEDEU & AIPEU POSTMEN-MTS) & S/G, NFPE & S/G, BPEF) has been made a one day hunger fist in the front of all the divisional office all over the India.
AIPEU GDS, NUGDS & AIGDSU tomorrow will make a march to Sanchar Bhawan
program to meet the Communication Minister Shree Manoj Sinha. A shocking thing is the non responsible attitude of minister, 10 days has passed, but no statement has given by the ministry.
Today Postal Secretory Shree A. N. Nanda Appeal once again to withdraw the GDS Indefinite Strike hence the Rural Postal System has been totally in stopped. He said on his appeal No 08-09/2017-SR dated 31.05.2018
“I hope you have had an occasion to go through my appeal dated 28th May 2018 highlighting the situation of the Department on account of strike. It is seen that member of public are facing difficulties.”
Meanwhile, chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking his immediate intervention in resolving the issue and ending the postal strike. In other hand a memorandum has been submitted to the Prime Minister of India through the Governor of the State on 29.05.2018 for resolving the issue of Gramin Dak Sevak.
The union decide to continue their GDS Indefinite Strike until the implementation of positive recommendation of GDS Pay Committee 2016. Let’s hope government change his negative attitude regarding GDS issue and soon take effective decision in favor of poor (low paid) Gramin Dak Sevak.
