கோட்ட/கிளை செயலாளர்கள் கவனத்திற்கு..
AIPEU-GDS-NFPE சங்கத்திற்கான உறுப்பினர் சேர்ப்பிற்கான பொன்னான காலம் வந்து விட்டது.
நாடு முழுவதும் 80 சதவீதம் கிளைகள் முறையாக மாநாடு நடைபெற்று செயல்பட்டு வருகிறது. 22 மாநிலங்களில் மாநில மாநாடுகள் நடைபெற்று மாநில சங்கம் செயல்படுகிறது. 3 மாநிலங்களில் மட்டும் இன்னும் மாநில மாநாடுகள் நடை பெறாமல் உள்ளது.
இதனிடையே 15.6.2016 தேதிக்குள் கோட்ட அளவிலான சங்க நிர்வாகி யார் என்ற பட்டியலை நிர்வாகத்திற்கு ஒப்படைக்க வேண்டும்.
ஆகவே இன்னும் கோட்ட அளவில் அமைப்பு ஏற்படுத்தாத கோட்டங்களில் ஜூன் 2016 முதல் வாரத்திற்குள் மாநாடு நடத்தி நிர்வாகியின் பெயரை உடனே மாநில செயலருக்கு தெரியப்படுத்தவும். தோழர்களே,
எந்த நிமிடத்திலும் உறுப்பினர் சேர்ப்பு படிவம் வரலாம். தயாராவீர் தோழர்களே..
இது சம்பந்தமான அப்பீல் GDS அகில இந்திய செயலாளர் தோழர் பாண்டுரங்கராவ் அவர்கள் கொடுத்துள்ளார்கள். கீழே நகல் உள்ளது.
அஞ்சல் நான்கின் தோழர்களே!!
இத்தருனத்தில் நமது பணி GDS ஊழியர்களை NFPE GDS சங்கத்தில் சேர்ப்பதே.
எனதருமை GDS தோழா!!  சிந்தித்து செயல்படு...
தனி நபர் கமிட்டி வேண்டாம் என்று போராடி, "ED ஊழியரின் போர்வாள்" "தல்வார் கமிட்டி" யை பெற்றது NFPE..
நாசமாய்போன நடராஜமூர்த்தி கமிட்டி வேண்டும் என கையெழுத்திட்டு GDS வாழ்வில் மண்ணைப் போட்டவர் மகாதேவையா..
NFPE உறவே வேண்டாம் எனறு ஒதுங்கியவர் மகாதேவையா..
EDSO க்களை ஒழித்த போது வாய்மூடி மௌனியாக, ஒரு ஆர்ப்பாட்டம் கூட செய்யாத மா வீரர் மகாதேவையா..
நடராஜமூர்த்தி BPM களுக்கு 1000 ரூபாய்க்கு ஒரு புள்ளி என்பதை 20,000 ரூபாய்க்கு ஒரு புள்ளியாக மாற்றி வாங்குகிற சம்பளத்தை குறைத்து BPM களின் வைற்றிலடித்த போதும், ஆர்ப்பாட்டம் கூட பண்ணாமல் ஊமையாய் இருந்த உத்தம வீரன் மகாதேவையா..
இறுதியாக இலாக்கா ஊழியருக்கு இணையாக GDS க்கும் NFPE போராடி பெற்ற போனஸ் ரூபாய் 3500 யை 2500 ஆக மாற்றிய புரட்சி வீரன் சாட்சாத் மகாதேவையாவே...
ஆனால் NFPE GDS சங்கம் உதயமான உடன் மகாதேவையாவால் இழந்த போனஸ் 3500 யை போராடிப் பெற்றது.
இன்னும் எத்தனையோ இழப்புகள் இந்த வீரனால்..
எனதருமை GDS தோழா!!
உன் வாழ்வை உறுதிப்படுத்த, இழந்த சலுகைகளை மீட்டிட NFPE GDS சங்கத்தில் இணைந்திடு தோழா...
புரட்சிகர வாழ்த்துக்களுடன்,

want of particulars from GDS applicant unions-- Verification of Membership –



AN APPEAL TO ALL



ALL INDIA POSTAL EMPLOYEES UNION GROUP ‘C’

CHQ: Dada Ghosh Bhawan, 2151/1, New Patel Road, New Delhi - 110008





AN APPEAL



All of you are aware about the formation of AIPEU GDS at Apex level and also the accordance of Associate membership status by the NFPE and affiliated unions. The decision was approved in the All India Conferences and direction were given to branches to form divisional/branch unions of AIPEU GDS and the name of the union was subsequently applied as AIPEU GDS at the process of the Verification of membership.



Even though, about 80% of branches were formed at divisional level, still more branches have to be formed at divisional level. Out of 22 circles, three circles have not formed any circle body till date. This is causing a concern.



All of you know very well that the verification process for GDS has been underway and at any time, the declarations in the form of “letter of authorization” will be called for. Hence, it is our foremost duty to form branches in all divisions and authorized representatives to the AIPEU GDS Unions to inform the department.



Today, the Department has called for the name of the authorized representatives for signing the declaration forms divisional wise. This process has to be completed before 15th June 2016. Therefore, the completion of the formation of branches shall be completed in the first week of June 2016.



During the last verification process held in 2010, the recognized union which was patronized by NFPE could secure only 62% of Membership among the working strength. This time we should register with more percentage in the contest. If we do not get more than the required strength it will become a problem for the existence of the unions in the GDS cadre.



It is further important that in the event of submission of authorization letters by individual GDS to two unions, it will become invalid. The First union should secure not less than 35% which is the basic condition of recognition; otherwise none will be recognized. Despite our confidence that we will win over with maximum declarations, it is compulsory to see that there shall be no duplicate applications in the verification process since the rival union is still propagating that it is still in NFPE and the false propaganda may split and spoil the declarations. It must be ensured to be more attentive to reach the maximum membership declaration and obtain the recognition.



Let us frankly discuss. If divisional unions are not formed or not effectively functioning at this crucial juncture, the advantage will go to rival unions which is not good for us. All our divisional secretaries not only must ensure the formation of GDS union but also involving themselves dedicatedly in the collection of declarations from the GDS comrades in favour of our union AIPEU GDS which is now applied as AIPEU - GDS.



It is the foremost and important task in the present circumstances like the functioning of the GDS committee, its expected recommendations, its implementation etc., the recognition for our union is a must and if we will be number one, it will increase our capacity in the collective bargaining.



The existing recognized GDS Union is not a part of NFPE or Confederation. It is an individual – self-centered organization. Our GDS NFPE Union believes and stand for the joint functioning. There should be no ties or patronage to the rival unions hereafter that we must ensure 100% Membership in favour of our GDS Union i.e. AIPEU GDS which will alone ensure the joint programme of action for mitigating the grievances of Postal employees.



Our P3 CHQ is always committed for the cause of GDS. Our divisional unions are whole heartedly and effectively functioning with the GDS Union all along. The same spirit must continue in the future. So, let us involve ourselves fully in the collection of declarations of GDS & formation of branches etc. The CHQ is expecting a report from all the divisional secretaries about the provisions of the existing situations with full details before the end of this month about the formation and the functioning of our GDS unions at divisional levels so that we can access the situation and act accordingly.



Let us dedicate ourselves for the emancipation of GDS

Let us form AIPEU GDS branches in all the divisions

Let us collect maximum declarations in favour of our AIPEU GDS

Let us forget sleep and rest till the GDS verification is over.

Let us act swiftly and achieve our goal of 100% membership in GDS Union.



With fraternal greetings,

Ex-General Secretary                        Ex-General Secretary                        General Secretary



Dear Comrades,



I am endorsing the above contents and making fervent appeal to all the divisional/branch secretaries to cooperate and activate the GDS Union at your level and let us be sincere in the joint functioning of postal employees under the banner of NFPE. As we have to submit the name of the representative for submission of declarations at divisional levels before 10th June 2016, please intimate the nominee to the GDS CHQ before 5.6.2016 positively.



May I seek your response Comrade





                                                                                                          (P. Pandurangarao)

CBS, FINACLE, CIS
DEMANDS DAY – 10.06.2016
There is no need to elaborate the miseries and sufferings we are facing at base level after the implementation of Finacle, (CBS & CIS) and the mental torture.
The CHQ is aware of the issues and properly placed before the Department vide its letter dated 22.01.2016, 11.02.2016 & 25.04.2016. Further it was brought to the personal notice of the Hon’ble Minister of communication. However, the progress in resolving the Finacle issues is in slow nail causing resentment and unrest amidst officials.
The assurance of the Department on 28.03.2016 in providing two more server by Infosys to solve the Finacle problem has not been carried out yet. The increase in the bandwith as per the requirement of the office has not been carried out in any circle.
Adding fuel to fire, the department’s recent decision in implementing the Business hours of Post office to the extent of 5 hours for monetary transactions has not been exercised. Some circles like Tamilnadu, Haryana etc. have sought clarifications to prevent the implementation of the decision without minding the existing sufferings of officials due to faulty functioning of Finacle & others and the officials are forced to remain in office in late hours. There is every risk for the women employees to leave office late every day.
For the last ten days, there is poor access and even no access in Finacle continuously throughout the nation affecting the public and staff very badly. This is nothing but due to the incapacity of the servers provided by Infosys. The department is not in a position either to correct things or apply the penal provisions against the vender. The existing position in Finacle is nothing but the last straw on camel’s back.
The recent conversations unofficially held between the Infosys and some staff exhibited in the website will reveal the fact. We must know who is committing mistake after mistake. Whether the officers dealing the Finacle are aware of all the software and hardware oriented issues. Are they simply hearing and acting as per the dictums of the vendors? Howe many times we are going to alter our rulings to suit the requirement of vendors? Will there be any time to the officials to go through the routine daily circulars on CBS functioning in the pressure of work?
We lost our patience. Even though, we suffer voluntarily a lot as we feel it is the transition period, in the implementation of Finacle, it is felt now that without settlement of the Problems, the Department is inclined to proclaim that it has implemented the Finacle more in numbers than the leading banks and also without any Quality and good service to the customer.
Under these circumstances, the CHQ has elaborately written a letter to the Department on 26.05.2016, detailing all the problems being existed in Finacle and McCamish and sought remedies within a fort night. In the event of non-settlement, the CHQ has decided to launch the following programme of action culminating to strike action.
10th June       -        Demands Day - Demonstration at divisional/branch levels
17th June       -        Dharna in front of Circle office.
30th June      -        Demonstration in front of Dak Bhawan & issue of strike notice. (The date will be decided with consultation of NFPE & JCA constituents)
The major demands put forth in the programme of action.
1.     Provide additional servers and solve the Finacle problem
2.    Increase the bandwidth as per the requirement.
3.    Implement the decision of Directorate on Business hours.
4.    Drop all Memos & Charge sheets issued due to Finacle minor mistake.
5.    Implementation of action on all the points put forth in the CHQ letter dated 26.05.2016.
This programme is nothing but to save the Postal Service from the existing chaos and confusions. Even though we desire peace, we have been pushed in to the wall. We could not tolerate furthermore.
All Divisional/Branch and circle secretaries are requested to organize the programme very effectively and intimate compliance. The CHQ will leave no stone unturned in the event of no settlement is seen in this serious issue.
With fraternal greetings,
Comradely yours,
