LET US WELCOME NEW YEAR 2014 WITH STRUGGLES
CHQ expressed heartful congratulations to all office bearers, Circle secretaries, Divisional/Branch Secretaries, members of AIPEDEU and well wishers for making unprecedented historic success if both the programmes of CHQ in Delhi on 12-12-2013 Parliament March and on 13-12-2013 GDS national convention by participating more than ten thousand in number and special thanks to Com,Gurudas Gupta M.P(Loksabha) and General Secretary AITUC, Com Shiv Gopal Mishra, Secretary NJCM and General Secretary All India Railwaymen Federation, Com P.Suresh, General Secretary, R-IV and Com K.K.Sharma, Vice President NFPE, for their solidary and support to AIPEDEU struggles.
The Parliament March and Convention are the milestones in the history of GDS. AIPEDEU conducted uncompromised struggles for the cause of GDS justified demands and got success over the some important demands such as equal bonus, RSBY gds Circle Welfare fund and Pension. Still we have to get regularization, inclusion of GDS wage structure and service conditions in the purview of 7th Central Pay Commission etc.,
It is known fact that we are creating revenue to the Department of Posts by implementing NREGA, SSP, PLI and RPLI and various schemes introduced by the Department while bearing the unbearable burden denial of our basic and justified rights.
It is right and appropriate time to grant civil servant status to GDS EMPLOYEES AS THE Department of Posts completely depend on the GDS system for revenue at present and in future. The Department of Post is seriously taking steps to fill up all the GDS Vacant Posts not only Branch Post Masters but also GDSMD and GDSMC Posts by the end of February 2014. As per the information from reliable sources, Branch Offices should be computerized at the end of December 2014 to perform its business on line.
Keeping in view all the points we demand the Department of Posts and the Government of India to grant civil servant status to GDS.
It is not an easy task the Department of Posts and the Government of India are not going to accept our demand. We can achieve this only by struggles. Each and every GDS are struggling day to day for survival. Struggles are not new to AIPEDEU stands as symbol of struggles since its birth. Some of the distinctive forces tried to dilute our struggles and failed. We do beg that nobody can separate GDS from AIPEDEU. All the GDS should come under the umbrella of AIPEDEU in the days to come to launch serious trade union action. We do believe that there is no other way except to fight to achieve our justified demands. Let us welcome New Year 2014 with struggles by making relay hunger fast programme at Circle office from 20-1-2014 to 24-01-2014 thundering success.

NFPE LEADERSHIP AGAIN STARTED CHEAP TRICKS TO CHEAT THE POOR AND INNOCENT-GDS COMRADES BY DILUTING THE STRUGGLES. THE SO CALLED LEADERSHIP INTENTIONALLY DILUTE THE UNCOMPROMISED STRUGGLES OF AIPEDEU.
AIPEDEU is launching serious struggle for regularization and inclusion of GDS wage structure and service conditions in the purview of 7th Central Pay Commission. March to Parliament on 12.12.2013 and GDS National Convention on 13.12.2013 are the part of the struggle.
NFPE and AIPEU-GDS(NFPE) filled a case in Apex court praying for implementation of 1977 Supreme Court Judgment. Generally so many doubts and questions are raising among the GDS regarding this. Why the federation kept quiet all the 37 years? Why not the federations filled the case after implementation of GDS Committees? Why the federation and so called GDS Union filled the case after announcement of 7th CPC? Answer is simple. To Support the Government. To dilute the demands. To dilute the struggles of AIPEDEU. How? When AIPEDEU starts struggles for regularization, there will be scope to the Department to dilute the movement by using the deeds of federation leadership.
Comrades, think who are doing favours to government and who are fighting in favour of GDS employees? Any how AIPEDEU never step back for struggles. We do believe that there is no other way except struggle for settlement of demands.
Most of the Divisional Secretaries do not contribute donation till date please clear CHQ Quota and Bonus donations immediately.
