CONSTITUTION OF DEPARTMENTAL CANTEEN MANAGING COMMITTEE



better late, than never!!
at last department of posts and ministry of communications  admitted that mckensey
model (mnop) l1, l2
is a total failure
orders issued to restore the old position
name remains (l1, L2) but the scheme stands scraped
the stand taken by the jca (nfpe & fnpo)
from the very beginning has been proved right.
it is a victory for our continuous campaign and struggles including the decision for indefinite strike which compelled the department to give an assurance that no rms offices will be closed.
nfpe congratulates the entire postal and rms
employees for this victory.
Now the question to be answered by the authorities are:
1.     Who is responsible for the delay caused to the public mails due to back-routing for the last two years?
2.     Who is responsible for the loss of public faith and trust in the Postal department due to heavy delay caused due to L1, L2 in processing and transmission of public mails?
3.     Who is responsible for paying an amount of more than 100 crores to be Mckensey Consultancy for this anti-people, anti-worker, “Tuglak Model” reforms?
4.     Who are those behind this shady deal with the Mckensy consultancy?  Why are they not taken to task?
                                                                              M. Krishnan

                                                                       Secretary General NFPE.

THIS IS THE OPPORTUNE MOMENT TO STRIKE THE IRON – STRIKE IT HARD

Dear Comrades,
            Confederation of Central Government Employees And Workers in its National Council held in the year 2010 at Mumbai has raised the demand of revision of wages of Central Government employees for every five years. Since then CCGEW is consistently agitating over the 15 point charter of demands which includes appointment of 7th CPC and merger of 50% D.A. with the pay for all purposes.  All these protests have culminated into a historical one day strike on 12-12-12. This strike stirred other major unions in the Railways and Defence and paved way for united action in the coming days to achieve the major demands of the Central Government employees.
            Central Head Quarters of the CCGEW has reviewed the entire developments on the charter of demands in its National Secretariat meeting held at New Delhi on 22.07.2013. It is decided to step up the campaign and prepare the rank and file for the ultimate trade union action to achieve the demand of appointment of 7th CPC, 50% merger of DA with Pay for all purposes, scraping of New Pension Scheme and other demands. Confederation has chalked out the following programme of action.

Confederation is spearheading the protest actions with a clear cut vision and strategy. Vision is to achieve the wage revision for every five years and the strategy is to unify all the Central Government employees including Railways and Defence for the ultimate showdown. To take the Charter to each and every Central Government employee and to register his/her anger and protest, the strike ballot is thought of, though it is not a mandatory requirement for strike action. Massive mobilization and expression of our determination by total participation in the calls given by CCGEW will ensure the achievement of our demands even without using the ultimate weapon.
