           I am happy to inform you that the Central working committee of our A.I.P.E.D.E.U. met at   Shri Kunvarbai Jain Dharmshala New Jail Road Jamnagar , Gujarat on 20th to 22nd    November, 2009 under the president ship of Com. D. N. Giri Prisident CHQ.  The C.W.C. open session was held on 22-11-2009 and inaugurated by Dharmadhikari Shri Dharmabandhuji Gau Palak (Pransla) and the open session was addressed by Shri Vikrambhai Madam Hon'ble M.P.

          The C.W.C. members who have attended the meeting debated and deliberated the issues at length.  After fruitful discussion, the C.W.C. adopted valuable resolutions on the issues confronting the GDS employees.

 Resolution on policy and programme .

           This meeting of the Central working committee of All India postal Extra Departmental Employees Union in its session held on   20th to 22nd    November, 2009 at Shri Kunvarbai Jain Dharmshala New Jail Road Jamnagar, Gujarat unanimously resolves:-

That the seriously considered the pros and cons   of the GDS committee recommendations and orders issued at present. This CWC has again come to the conclusion that it is not to the satisfaction of the GDS employees. The orders issued by the Government/Dept. of Posts, vide letter No. 6-1/2009-PEII dated 9.10.2009, require improvements/modifications forthwith.

That the suggestion of Shri.Nataraja Murti report proposing amendment to GDS rules and to deny applicability of ID Act 1947 for much exploited GDS is fatal and hence opposed vehimently. Our issues should have been examined by the 6th CPC as per Talwar Committee recommendations. Rename of GDS (Conduct and Employment) Rules 2001 as (Conduct and Engagement) is also to worsen the present status of GDS employees and hence we oppose this suggestion. Further there is no need to outsource or franchise the services of rural net work and the suggestion there of need to be scrapped.  One point for each 5000/-of cash handling would be ideal and reasonable the committee observed.                 

The CWC of AIPEDEU further discussed the very serious pending problems and following resolutions are adopted.  

(a).   Undue delay in granting Grant of Status, Pension/Social Security,     Medical, ACP, HRA,SDA, Transport Allowance and other items.  

(b).   Denial of Full Trade Union Facilities like re-constitution of Departmental ED/GDS committee, Regional JCM to GDS and grant of special leave, beyond 180 days, for     the Chief Executive of the All India Union of the AIPEDEU, which is the only recognised union for GDS as per new recognition Rules.

The CWC of AIPEDEU at Jamnagar decides to organize Divisional/State level conventions at state capitals and national level convention finally. 
The CHQ requests all Divisional Circle Secretaries to finalize and successfully implement above programme purposefully.

 

1.       In the month of December 2009 Divisional level convention mobilize more       members and popularize our demands and invite local prominent Trade        Union leaders and public leaders. Also handover memorandum to MPs,    MLAs and Chief Ministers.

2.       15th December 2009 Divisional level Massive Dharna before Divisional Office for Solidarity support to Extend to RMS Strike if need further programme will be announced by the CHQ.

3.       January and February 2010 State level convention. Also handover memorandum to MPs, MLAs and Chief Ministers.

4.       This metting of Central Working Committee calls upon all Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretaries of AIPEDEU to stage intensive demonstration/Hunger fast on 20-1-2010 at all levels and to pass a suitable resolution. The Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretaries to send Telegrams / Savingrams to the Hon'ble Minister for Communications & IT, Minister of State for Communications & IT expressing their strong resentment of the issue.

5.       The National level convention/conference in the Month of February/March 2010.This Central Working Committee further authorizes the General Secretary, AIPEDEU to finalize further programme of action like March to Parliament or direct action   in case the demand is not met within reasonable time.

CENTRAL WORKING COMMITTEE MEETING

Letter to Govt. Implementation of GDS committee -modifications sought for pay, allowances and other service conditions.

GDS/CHQ/41/1 /2009                                                                    Dated 20-11-2009

 

To,

 

Ms. Radhika Doraiswamy,                        

Secretary,

Department of Posts,

Dak Bhavan, New Delhi – 1.

 

Sub;- Implementation of GDS committee -modifications sought for pay, allowances and other service conditions.

Ref;-  Directorate's Letter No.6-1/2009-PE.II dated 9th October 2009

Madam,                   

A kind reference is invited to this union's letter No. GDS/CHQ/41/2009 dated 16-03-2009, 02-02-2009, 27.02.2009,30-01-2009 and 27-01-2009.

This union while reiterating all those points likes to add more to justify our legitimate demands.

 

1.           Retirement Benefits:-

All retirement benefits i.e., severance amount exgratia gratuity may be granted from 01-01-2006 instead of 09-10-2009. All central Government Retd., Employees have been granted pension, gratuity, Commutation from 01-01-2006 as per new scales recommended by VI CPC. According to the 6th C.P.C. Central Govt. Employees become eligible to get full Retirement benefits if they complete 20 years of service. The same yard stick is to be applied for GDS also. Similarly last pay drawn with the component of DA may be taken in to account for calculating gratuity. In nutshell the retirement benefits should be extended on per with regular employees with reference to 6th C.P.C. The benefits may be made applicable from 1.1.2006 in the interest of poor and much exploited GDS employees.

2.            TRCA on pro-rata basis:-

(a)             TRCA should be on pro-rata basis in comparison with the corresponding

          cadres of regular  employee.

 (b)             Two TRCA (that means of less than 4 hours work load and more than 4 hrs workload) only should be allowed as in the past.  Minimum TRCA slab for 3hrs(new) for all categories should removed as the computation of statistical information is not based on scientific/practical and rational understanding.

3.                Fixation must be @ 1.86 instead of 1.74

4                  Annual increase at par with regular employees, that is 3%

5                  P.L. Bonus Ceiling to be restored and raised upto Rs-3500/-.  

6                  Group Insurance at par with regular employees at least minimum  Rs

                   1,50,000/-

7.                II Installment of arrears should be paid in the present financial year 2009-2010 itself.

8                  Contributory Pension Scheme and Medical coverage:-

I.             On Social Security, Pension, it is disappointing to see that no acceptance has been made for the contributory Pension Scheme although Shri. Nataraja Murthi committee has recommended the same. This is a vital issue for us. Contributory pension as recommended by Nataraja Murthy Committee may be granted to GDS Officials.

II.            Rs. 30,000/- per year may be added with T.R.C.A. as medical coverage.

10                         Regarding Allowances:-

(i)           Payment of Rs. 100/- as OMA is inadequate in these days of spiraling cost of living. Payment of Electricity charges should also be taken note of. Hence Rs. 100/- be enhanced to Rs. 350/- P.m.

(ii)         Ceiling fixed for cash conveyance at the rate of Rs. 50/- should be removed. We cannot

predict as to when and how many days the surplus cash will have to be conveyed in a month. Hence the ceiling should be removed. On the other hand it may be fixed at the rate of Rs. 50/- for each occasion. (ie) Five times of the old rate formula without any ceiling.

(iii)       By the condition of removing minimum distance factor of 10 km for grant of cycle

maintenance allowance, that means, all the GDS, MD/MC/Packer duties will be treated as cyclable beats and the TRCA would be drastically reduced. Special considerations are necessary to resolve this issue as the work of these categories of GDS need to be assessed on the practicality the section is to be treated a multi skilled GDS like departmental staff.  For this section foot beat formula need to be made applicable as in the past.

(iv)        As regards combination of duties no combined duties are to be attached if the incumbent

is having 5 hrs work load. By the addition of Delivery or mail conveyance work etc, the total work load would become more than 5hrs say about 7 hrs which would justify for regularization of the post. So we must demand for the up gradation of the post as Group 'D' or postman as the case may be.

(v)          Compensation of Rs. 12/- per day for detention of mails is totally inadequate. Based on

the hourly rate of TRCA fixed for the GDS a minimum of Rs.30/- should be paid per hour of detention. Considering the above facts our demands should be as follows.

(vi)        HRA and Transport allowance who are working in Metro/Urban and Semi Urban at for

with regular employees

 

10.         Promotions/Leave and other benefits:-

i.        Three promotions to all GDS on completion of 10th, 20th, 30th year of their services shall be granted.

ii.         CL, EL etc. like the Departmental Employees should be given to the GDS.

 iii.        The period of GDS service should be counted for pension and gratuity to the   promotees.

iv.         The date of superannuation of GDS should be the last working day of the

   month of retirement.

v.          Gratuity should be as for Gratuity Act for GDS also. The present grant of sixty thousand for both Severance amount should be the minimum, that is whichever is more.

11.                   Grant 'Status' of Government Servant.

This Union therefore urges upon you to intervene into the matter and cause suitable steps for early redressal of these grievances.

A line in reply intimating the nature of action taken will be highly appreciated.

                                                                                    Yours faithfully,

 

                                                                                    (S.S. Mahadevaiah)
