The meeting was presided over by T.N Rahate, Secretary General FNPO.
A threadbare discussion took place on the prevalent situation in Deptt of Post. Deptt is moving ahead on the path of corporatization which will lead to privatization of services in future . IPPB is the burning example of this. After MNOP, PNOP has been brought and separate Parcel Directorate has been
Setup . The Minister communication is announcing to setup a separate company for PLI & RPLI.
There is acute shortage of staff in each cadre . Cadre Restructuring for left out categories is not being finalized. The result of regular membership verification conducted in 2015 has not been declared yet. The entire process of GDS membership verification was cancelled arbitrarily.
High Court & Supreme Court decisions in respect of MACP, RTP and others matters are not being implemented.
Positive recommendations of Sri Kamlesh Chandra Committee are not being implemented.
Every day new services are being introduced without developing proper infrastructure and without providing adequate manpower and training to the staff. Deptl Council meetings and periodical meetings are also not being held since long. More and more victimization of trade union leaders has become the order of the day.
So therefore taking a serious note of all the above mentioned facts, PJCA has decided unanimously to conduct 2 days strike on 8 & 9 January – 2019 for which vigorous campaign will be launched . All leaders of NFPE & FNPO will carry on the campaign programme which will be declared shortly.
