The Postal Joint Council of Action comprising NFPE, FNPO, AIPE Union GDS (NFPE) & NUGDS has viewed with grave concern, the total negative attitude of the Central Government towards the genuine demands of the Postal employees which includes the revision of wages and service condition of the Gramin Dak Sevaks by 7thCPC, implementation of Cadre Restructuring Agreement and filling up of all vacant posts in all cadres of Department of Posts.
As the 7th CPC may submit its report any time before 31st December,2015 , delay in settling the above demands will result in denial of justice to 5.5 lakhs Postal Employees .
In view of the above serious situation the PJCA unanimously decided to revive the postponed indefinite strike of May 6th and to commence the indefinite strike from 23rd November, 2015, the date from which JCM National Council Staff Side is going on indefinite strike. It is further decided that in case the JCM Staff Side change their decision the PJCA will go on strike from 23d November,2015 itself for the following demands:
(i)Include GDS in 7th CPC for wage revision and other service related matters.
(ii)Implement cadre Restructuring proposals in all cadres including Postal Accounts and MMS in Department of Posts
(iii)Fill up all vacant posts in all cadres of Department of Posts(i.e. PA,SA, Postmen, Mail Guard, Mail Man, GDS Mail Man, MMS Driver & other staff in MMS, PA CO, PA SBCO , PO Accounts & Civil Wing Staff)
