CONFEDERATION CIRCULAR ON STRIKE BALLOT & 15 CHARTER OF DEMANDS

Dear Comrades,
You are well aware of the fact that Civil status and all benefits at par with regular departmental employees  to the Gramin Dak Sevaks can be achieved except Departmentalization of BOs & Regularization of GDS.  
For the last few decades, we had the experience of 5 Pay committees, except Justice Talwar Committee,  all other, with the influence of officialdom  negated the legitimate benefits of GDS, except few,  with the series of struggles conducted so for. 
Again and again the Department is trying to suppress and diluting the status of GDS in the Department with the stringent modifications in  non-statutory rules from Conduct &Service Rules to Engagement Rules. The recent One Man Committee is a replica of the attitude of bureaucrats.
It should not be continued further and all with one determination ie., Departmentalization & Regularization, moving ahead with united struggles for the cause of GDS.
You might have known that the GDS demand has been given such an importance in the JCA formed with Railway & Defense Unions with Confederation for further struggles among  the demands of all Central Govt Employees.
 The NFPE along with AIPEU GDS (NFPE) is on the move to include GDS issues in the purview of 7th Central Pay Commission. Besides, NFPE & Confederation of Central Govt Employees and Workers conducted many joint struggles with GDS demands including the recent strike on 12-12-2012.
A phase of action came before us, which needs an elaborate discussion on the struggles and strikes on various issues affecting the basic rights of the employee’s sections and working class. Except industrial action, the Govt is allowing for conciliation of the demands and bargaining.
Now, the choice has to be taken by all GDS to prepare for an industrial action along with the entirety of Central Govt Employees by taking appropriate decision on strike ballot forwarded by the Confederation.
Your decision is in favour of strike – tick “YES” 
Hopefully we can not expect “NO” from any GDS.......!!!
Yours fraternally,
P.Pandurangarao
General Secretary

The New Circle Welfare Fund Scheme for GDS

The Directorate has circulated a draft copy of the proposed Scheme on Circle Welfare Fund for GDS. We made a careful study of the scheme. It is found that the contributory CWF Scheme which now exists in some circles is more advantageous and beneficial than the present proposed scheme. 

For example, in Kerala circle, the financial assistance being granted towards the medical treatment to GDS goes up to 1 lakh and there is no restriction in the claims in respect of all major diseases and also in respect of other welfare measures, it seems with more benefits positively than the present scheme proposed by the department.

More over the maternity grant, death relief, scholarship for children of GDS etc., are being granted already from the Welfare Fund of the Dept irrespective of the contribution made by the GDS. Except grant of loan up to Rs50000 that too for a limited three purposes like construction of room for BO, purchase of computers and motor cycle etc, nothing new in the proposal.

The new proposal is nothing but to manage the welfare grants hitherto granted by the Govt from the welfare grant and from the contribution of the GDS. The employee’s contribution is proposed as Rs.240 p.a and the Dept’s contribution is fixed as Rs.100 p.a.  only. The amount proposed for certain welfare grants are also very meager and reflected the same rates as prevailing today. 

The freezing of benefits and refund for penalties imposed in cases viz., removal, dismissal and resignation etc., is the retrograde provision even though they contributed for the scheme.

Taking into consideration of many other facts, this union is dissatisfied and disappointed on the proposed scheme. However, for those circles where no such scheme is in existence, it may not be ruled out the benefits. 

There may be many changes required in the proposed scheme and the rates prescribed for all the welfare measures are inadequate and requires further revision. Otherwise the scheme will be half-baked and the desired results may not reach the most exploited GDS.


This union is requesting the Department to modify the scheme after studying the schemes now existing in many Circles and make it more attractive and beneficial to the GDS.

P.Pandurangarao
General Secretary
