MAKE IT A GRAND SUCCESS – MOBILISE EFFECTIVELY
Dear Comrades and friends,
As you are aware the bonus calculation ceiling of all Central Government employees was raised from 35W to 7000 by the Government from 01.04.2014 onwards and orders were issued on 29.08.2016. Arrears for the financial year 2014-15 was also paid to all departmental employees. But till this day, orders for payment of enhanced bonus to three lakhs Gramin Dak Sevaks are not issued by the Postal Board, for reason best known to them. The file is being sent to JS & FA to GDs committee to Finance Ministry. As the eligibility of equal bonus to GDS is already a settled matter, again raising the very same objections of Nataraja’ Murthy Committee is quite unwarranted and cannot be tolerated. We cannot allow this discrimination and we shall
fight it out at any cost.
Similarly, eventhough the Postal Board has issued orders revising the wages of casual labourers w.e.f. 01.01.2006 as per the 6T’ CPC minimum wage of Group-D, till this day many Orcles and Divisions have not paid the arrears to the poor, unorganized, marginalized and most exploited section of casual, part-time, contingent employees and wily rated Mazdoors. 7′ CPC revision has become due now. As the bonus ceiling of all Central Government employees are enhanced, there is every justification for enhancing the bonus payable to casual labourer-s also. Postal JCA is very much concerned with the demands of casual labourers and we shall continue our struggle till justice is done.
After reviewing the whole situation, the Postal JCA has decided to organize above mentioned phased programme of action culminating in two days nation wide strike on 9 ‘ & 10th November 2016. This is the first time the Postal JCA is organizing two days strike exclusively for the demands of Gramin Dak Sevaks and Casual labourers. we believe that -“An injury to one is an injury to all” and we call upon all the departmental employees, GDS employees and casual, part-time, contingent employees and daily rated mazdoors to participate in all the above agitational programmes and make the 9th & 10w’ November two days strike cent per cent success. Let us shut dowm all the postal and RMS offices including Departmental Post offices, GDS Branch post offices, RMS offices, Administrative Aces and Postal Accounts offices on 9’~ & 10’u November 2016.
