AIPAEA CHENNAI ON STRUGGLE PATH - SUPPORT THEM - AIPAEA UNITS OBSERVE PROTEST DAY ON 25-05-2015

Comrades,
AIPAEA Tamilnadu Circle has served the strike notice to go on indefinite strike from 02-06-2015 against the atrocious, undemocratic and anti employee attitude of the GM(Finance) Postal Accounts, Chennai. In fact, for many months this fight is going on. The latest provocation is the stopping of payment of terminal benefits to a Senior Accountant who has retired on superannuation on 30-04-2015 after rendering an unblemished service for more than 32 years. GM has issued charge sheets to 80 officials who had protested her highhanded actions. The Charge sheets issued under Rule 16 were ended with punishment of postponement of one increment for 3 months. The punishement order is implemented. All the charged officials have gone to the CAT for justice. The case is under hearing. Now, one of the applicants retired on 30-04-2015. The GM took a stand that the judisial proceedings are pending and hence, no terminal benefits can be paid. Only provisional pension order has been issued. No one might have heared about such an action i.e. stopping the pension for approaching the Court of Law for justice. The Pension Rule only says " if any judicial proceedings against the official is not completed on the date of retirement" the provisional pension order should be issued. The judicial proceedings against the official may be a criminal case or civil case against the official. But, Chennai authorities have interpreted against the official to wreck vengence. How can we understand in a different way! Wonderful officers who are expected to be independent and judicious silently supporting the processes of subjective actions of the GM. Then, what is the alternative left with the employees of Chennai?
Throughout the country all PAOs are giving officiating promotions to Senior Accountants. But, Chennai is different kingdom! Chennai GM is not allowing any adhoc promotions to the Senior Accountants there by depriving the senior employees their lifetime chance of promotion. She  resorted  to this practice for the past about one year. No body knows, how one year back it was right and now it is wrong!!
Suddenly one fine morning it flashed to the GM that the root cause of indiscpline is allowing breakfast in the Departmental Canteen. Hence, issued orders not to serve breakfast in the Departmental Canteen!!
GM can order recovery of TA/DA from the Internal Audit party for not performing to her liking!
GM can order abolition of Sections!
GM can decide not to reply to the letters of the Recognised Association!
GM can decide not to abide by the directions of the Directorate!
GM is the law unto herself!
What is the alternative left with the employees of the Chennai?
Finally, they are forced to resort to serve the strike notice. The campaign is going on! Confederation leaders and NFPE leaders extended their support and solidarity.
All the AIPAEA units are requested to hold protest demonstrations on Monday i.e. 25-05-2015. Send the below given protest resolution to Member Finance, Secretary Posts, DDG(PAF) and  CPMG TN (currently CPMG Karnataka is in-charge of TN Circle) Circle by Fax. Implementation of the programme may please be informed to General Secretary/AIPAEA by SMS/Email/Whatsapp
_--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RESOLUTION
We strongly resolve to oppose the oppressive and anti-employee actions of GM(Finance) Postal Accounts, Chennai. Pray for strong  intervention to resolve the issues by dialogue with Staff Side to avoid indefinite strike w.e.f. 02-06-2015 by AIPAEA, Chennai.

              subsequent meeting minutes held on 30-04-2015.

Respected Madam,

 I would like to humbly submit that the PA Wing has conveyed to this Association vide the letter under reference 5 that the Cadre Restructuring proposal “cannot be considered again on the grounds that the clarification, as sought therein with regard to live posts of DEO and Sorter cadre cannot be accommodated since the sorter cadre has since been declared defunct and DEO cadre pertains to PAO Chennai only.” It is unfortunate that the recommendations of the Committee headed by DDG (PAF) concurred by the JS&FA and approved by the Secretary (P) has been negated instead of strongly justifying the grounds on which the proposal has been sent to DOP&T. It is stranger that the minutes issued to the PJCA conveyed a different impression all the time. The letter (u/r 5) has never reached this Association until the DDG (PAF) is kind enough to hand over a copy on
30-04-2015 during the PJCA meeting.

I strongly urge your good-self to cause immediate action to initiate necessary action to fully justify the recommendations of the Department of Posts on the Cadre Restructuring of the PAOs and pursue the issue at DOP&T.

With Regards,

Yours faithfully,
 Sd/-,

Shri. Rajnish Kumar,

Sub:- Restructuring of Sorter, LDC and DEO cadres in PAOs –
            Regarding.
Ref:-     No. 2(5)/09/PA-Admn.I / 497 / PA Wing dated 18-07-2014.

Sir,

The views of this Association on the points raised by the nodal Ministry are furnished below. Before answering the specific points, I would like to emphasis the point that for the decades together no cadre restructuring or review in the Postal Accounts has been undertaken. The 6th Central Pay Commission has left this task to Ministries and Departments concerned. As this important aspect is overlooked for such a long time, an element of stagnation, a gap in the skill levels required and a general sense of alienation from the Organization have crept in among the lower cadres. To remedy this and make the cadres relevant to the present and future functional requirements, this cadre review has been mooted. 

Point (i): The Cadre restructuring proposals are formulated with the participation of the Service Association. While drafting the proposals the parameters like expected changes in the Organization’s activities, proposed automation, changes in the business activities of the Department of Posts, future recruitment requirements, the need to plug the existing gaps in the skills required, stagnation and career progression and financial implications are taken into account. It is proposed to amalgamate the existing cadres of Sorter, LDC and DEO and create a new grade with the nomenclature of Accounts Assistant with the Grade Pay of Rs.2400. In fact, the DEO cadre with GP of Rs. 2400 exists in all the Organized Accounts Departments. In the Postal Accounts the DEO cadre exists in Chennai PAO only. The proposed grade is not new in the sense that it already exists in the Organized Accounts and the same was proposed with the change in the nomenclature keeping in view the duties involved in the Organization.

Point (ii): Financial implications are the matter of calculations. The Department can work on that.

Point (iii): Department can take the required approvals.

Point (iv):  DEO cadre exists only in Chennai PAO. The background for creation of this cadre may be impressed. Same Recruitment Rules in other Organized Accounts can be adopted with the change in the nomenclature.

Point (v): Desired information may please be furnished.

Point (vi): The post proposed is in PB-I, G.P. of Rs. 2400 (equal to DEO ) nomenclature as Accounts Assistant. The promotional hierarchy is Junior Accountant and Senior Accountant as per the existing Recruitment Rules. Accounts Assistant is the feeder cadre to Junior Accountant. Mode of Recruitment is through Department Examination and Staff Selection Commission.

Point (vii): Discrepancies can be corrected.

Point (viii): Para 4 & Para 5 of Memorandum on Cadre restructuring amplifies the point. Functional justification in view of the CSI, CBS and other ongoing modernization projects in the Department of Posts including the switching over to the Accrual Accounts has to be reiterated by providing latest inputs in this regard.

Point (viii) (b): The existing hierarchy of Sorter, LDC and DEO may be provided.

Point (viii)©: It is to intimate that similar restructuring is being proposed by the Departments in the Organized Accounts and IA&AD.

Point (viii)(d): The DEOs in Chennai are functioning in ex-cadre posts. They are being treated, as LDCs. Hence there will be no problem in integration. Otherwise also the DEOs would be integrated in the restructured Accounts Assistant on the basis of their date of joining the posts as would apply also for LDCs and Sorters and therefore, it shall not pose any adverse impact. There is such precedence in the Postal Department regarding merger of LDC and UDC s of Circle and SBICO offices into Postal Assistant Cadres.

In view of above submissions, I request you to cause immediate action to get the approval of Cadre restructuring proposals by the nodal Ministry. For this purpose, as suggested in UO dated 18-03-2014 a senior officer may please be deputed to thrash out the contentious issues.

With Regards, 
Yours faithfully,
