NFPE

Dear comrades, 

This is the status of the GDS Committee Report, enquired by our Secretary General, NFPE with the concerned officers of the Directorate.

In social media, it is creating unnecessary temptation among the cadre  that one union got meeting with Secretary, Posts on such and such date. One should understand that it may not be a formal meeting (without any agenda), further a G/S who requested through a letter and got permission after 12 days, shows the exposition of the weakness of that union.

All the members of AIPEU-GDS are requested to know that NFPE & our CHQ are making all efforts to pursuing the situation timely, as and when necessary, giving correct information to the members.  

Fraternally yours,

P.PANDURANGARAO
General Secretary

Dear Comrades,
            First of all on behalf of NFPEHQ.I would like to extend my revolutionary greetings to all those comrades who contributeda lot for making the one day strike on 23rdAugust 2017 a grand success. Our soldiers of NFPE have shown that being the major organization we can bear major responsibility . After a long gap and only for Postal sectional demands this strike was conducted by NFPE alone and it was a grand success in majority of the areas. It was not up to the mark in some areas for which we would review and make efforts to make those areas stronger.
