Dear Comrades,
            Preparations for the successful implementation of the Two Days strike on 2013 February 20 & 21 are going on full swing all over the country. India and world will be witnessing one of the biggest strike of the united working class on February 20 & 21.  More than ten crores workers will participate in the strike.  All the Central Trade Unions including INTUC, BMS, AITUC, CITU, HMS etc, Employees Teachers Federations, Public Sector Organizations are participating in the strike. The main demand is reversal of the anti-labour, anti-people, neo-liberal economic policies of the Central Government.

            Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & workers have already endorsed the decision of the Central Trade Unions and Federations, Strike notice was served by confederation to Cabinet Secretary and the affiliated unions to the concerned Head of Departments on 22.01.2013. In addition to the common charter of demands raised by the Central Trade Unions, Confederation has included its 15 points charter of demands also in the strike notice.  As far as Central Govt. Employees are concerned, the February 20, 21 strike is a continuation of the 12th December 2012 strike.  The demand for appointment of 7th CPC and merger of 50% DA is still pending. We have to continue our struggle till these demands are accepted by the Government. Confederation National leaders campaign programme is going on in all states.

            In Postal, both National Federation of Postal Employees (NFPE) and Federation of National Postal Organizations (FNPO) are participating in the Nationwide strike under the banner of Joint Council of action.  In addition to the common charter of demands, JCA has raised the Postal oriented demands also, including wage revision, DA merger, abolition of Posts, National Postal Policy, GDS demands, Casual Labour issues, cadre restructuring, revision of OTA rates & compassionate appointments. The Joint strike notice has been served to the Secretary, Department of Posts on 22.01.2013. Copy of the strike notice and charter of demands are already published in websites and also in the journals of all unions and Federations.  As part of the campaign programme, All India leaders of NFPE & FNPO will be jointly addressing the campaign programmes in all Circles. Comrades, when the entire workers of our country are unitedly fighting a historic battle against the retrograde policies of the Government, the entire postal & RMS employees including Gramin Dak Sevaks shall join this mass upsurge and make the 48 hours strike cent per cent. Move to grant license to couriers, abolition of posts, denial of the legitimate demands of the Gramin Dak Sevaks etc. are all due to the neo-liberal policies of the Central Government and in order to change the policy, the united struggle of the working class is the only alternative.  NFPE calls upon the entirety of Postal & RMS Employees including Gramin Dak Sevaks to join the strike en-mass and make it a grand success.
