No.GDS/CHQ/1/5/2014 Dated 22-12-2014
All Circles/Divisional/ Branch Secretaries of All India Gramin Dak Sevaks Union, All India Office Bearers….
AIGDSU DHARNA REMAINS MILE STONE AND LANDMARK IN GDS TRADE UNION MOVEMENT.
NEVER BEFORE IN THE HISTORY OF POSTAL TRADE UNION MOVEMENT SUCH A LARGE NUMBER OF ARRESTS WERE MADE.
CHQ congratulates office bearers, circle secretaries, Divisional, Branch Secretaries and well wishers of GDS for making unprecedented and thundering success of 19.12.2014 Dharna.
You will be pleased to know that nearly three thousand Gramin Dak Sevaks from different parts of the country assembled in Dak Bhavan early morning at 8:00 A.M. on 19.12.2014 to stage dharna to protest against Department of Posts unwillingness to implement the written agreement between Department of Posts and All India Gramin Dak Sevaks Union dated 21.2.2014 to the effect that a Pay Committee headed by a judge of Supreme Court/High Court will be appointed to determine the pay structure & service conditions of the Gramin Dak Sevaks. This has not been implemented till date. We were therefore compelled to launch Massive Dharna. The Government instead of allowing GDS to stage a peaceful dharna, arrested them and detained them till late evening.
Three thousand GDS employees continued Dharna while in custody with slogans up to 5:00 P.M. in the police station. AIGDSU congratulates thousands of Gramin Dak Sevaks who willingly courted arrest for their sacrifice and heroic act. This act glorified AIGDSU as the real fighter for the cause of Gramin Dak Sevaks. Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah, General Secretary and Com. Rajangam, President met senior officers of the Prime Minister office and submitted the memorandum. Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah explained the happenings in detail. Com. S.S. Mahadevaiah, General Secretary and Com. B.V. Rao, Asst. General Secretary negotiated with SP in the evening. All the three thousand GDS employees released unconditionally late in the evening.
We have fought a glorious struggle. We shall continue our struggle till our demands are met. AIGDSU acknowledges with gratitude the support & solidarity we got from AITUC and the Hon’ble Member of Parliament Sri. Dilipji Gandhi.
BEWARE OF SPLITTERS/DISRUPTERS OF ALL INDIA GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS UNION EXPOSE THEIR BETRAYAL OF GRAMIN DAK SEVAKS CAUSE
