CIRCULAR – 43

Dear Comrades,
Congratulations!
            I am very happy to announce you all that in the membership verification, our Association has emerged as the largest one, commanding more than 67% of Postal Accounts employees. Department has granted recognition to AIPAEA vide orders dated 22-09-10. It is the duty of all of us to make the AIPAEA the single representative Association in the Postal Accounts. For this all the Units should work hard, attend the day to day problems of the employees, closely interact with the employees and inform our activities to all the employees and build a closely knit relationship with the members.

Urgent feed-back required
I request all the Circle Secretaries to immediately send the information regarding the 1) total sanctioned strength of S.A, J.A, LDC, Sorter, Multitask Staff(Gr.D), Stenographers, Hindi Translators, Hindi Typists and Canteen Staff  2) Cadre wise men-in-position  3) Our Membership 4) Membership of other Associations. Please forward the required information immediately to my camp address given above.
Demands Day on 6th October’ 2010
Com. Basudeb Acharia, M.P. leader of the CPI (M) Group, Loksabha has moved amendments against the resolution moved by the Government in the Parliament for rejection of the award on parity. Consequentially, the Government could not move the Resolution in the just concluded monsoon session of the Parliament. Com. Basudeb Acharia, MP has also forwarded the letter issued by the apex JAC to the Finance Minister with request to implement the award.  Apex JAC also met Smt. Sushma Swaraj, Leader of Opposition, Loksabha and requested to oppose the resolution in the Parliament. Smt. Sushma Swaraj responded positively and assured the delegation that she would take up the matter and ensure that the award is not moved for rejection in the Parliament.
To step up pressure on the government every unit should observe Demands Day on 6th October 2010 by organizing lunch-hour demonstration and send the following Savingram to Shri Prananb Mukharjee, Finance Minister, North Block, New Delhi-110001.
SAVINGRAM
            URGE WITHDRAWAL OF RESOLUTION ON REJECTION OF ARBITRATION AWARD IN CA NO 3 OF 2001 RELATING TO GRANT OF HIGHER PAY TO SR. ACCOUNTANT/ AUDITORS   NOTIONALLY WITH EFFECT FROM 1.1.1986 AND ACTUALLY FROM 12-11-2001. REQUEST NEGOTIATED SETTLEMENT.

………………….Association

                                                           
September 7th Strike and Review
            The one day protest has registered the participation of largest number of workers and employees throughout the country. In the Postal Accounts, the strike is total in Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Raipur, Bengal and Assam. The strike is partial at Chennai, Lucknow, Nagpur, Bhopal, and Delhi. There are also some units where no strike took place. CHQ has yet to receive reports from the units. I request all the Circle Secretaries to review the performance i.e. the strengths and weaknesses. Hold activist meetings. Explain the reason and the need to follow the call of our Federation. Sustained campaign should be built to highlight the policy assaults by the Government and the role of NFPE and AIPAEA on countering such attacks. If we allow the monetarism to crept into our movement we will lose all the gains we achieved so far. Let the fight be on principles. Let AIPAEA be a fighting force.

Re-organization of Postal Accounts
            The Department of Posts is unveiling a move to induct the technology in a large scale. In the light of that the Department is moving fast to re-organize the PAO. A committee under the Chairpersonship of CPMG, Orissa has been examining the issue. It is unfortunate that the Department has not thought it fit to inform the Staff side of the Developments. General Secretary has addressed a letter in this regard to the Secretary Posts and demanded a blueprint. DDG (PAF) told that a formal meeting will be held with the Association. We have to examine the pros and cons of this and be prepared to resists all the moves which are detrimental to the PAO staff.

Meeting with DDG(PAF)
Shri. Manish Sinha , GM (Finance), New Delhi is holding the charge of DDG(PAF) till a regular incumbent is posted. I have met the DDG(PAF) on 23-09-10 along with Com. D.S. Chauhan, Asst. G.S. and discussed the matters relating to the shifting of British India Road Building, Kolkata, problems of Raipur PAO, diversion of Sorter vacancies to Gr.D quota wherever eligible Sorters are not available, MACP promotions by counting the service from the point of Direct recruitment in respect of in-service candidates and Cadre re-structuring. Letters addressed on these issues are put in the aipaea09.blogspot.com  I request the Circle Secretaries to visit the blog and download the same for circulation.
Eligible leave on 8th April, 2010
I hope all units have got the copy from our blog and addressed letters to the Administration to regularize the absence on that day. It is a great victory. We convey our thanks to the DDG(PAF) and other authorities.
Committee on CC problems
You are aware that 19th AIC constituted a Committee under the convenorship of Com. S.B. Yadav, Deputy General Secretary, Lucknow to examine all the procedure followed  and problems faced by the units, so that a uniform procedure can be demanded and also to demand the authorities to address the problems immediately. But so far the feedback by the units to the Committee is very poor. I request all the Circle Secretaries to send their report to Com.S.B.Yadav, within 15 days time without fail.
                       
We won the Cases in the Hon’ble Pr. CAT
You are all aware that the CHQ has filed two cases in the Hon’ble Pr. CAT, New Delhi. In the first case relating to the stepping up of the pay of the senior with that of the junior official under ACP, the Department has been given two months time to consider the matter in the light of the observations made by the CAT. In the second case of treating the JA and SA as single promotion , the CAT ordered to represent to the Department and the Department should within a reasonable time should decide the matter in the light of the judicial pronouncements. On 22-09-10 the General Secretary met our lawyer along with Sri. S.K. Vyasji and submitted the representation in both the cases to the Secretary, Department of Posts. The verdicts given by the CAT has already been placed in our BlogSpot.
Strengthen the CHQ
It is bonus time. Orders are expected soon. There will be no change of bonus ceiling. We may expect 60 days of bonus again; though efforts are on to increase that. CHQ is reeling under financial constraints. We have to discharge the liability on account of payment of arrears of pay and allowances to our former General Secretary and maintain the CHQ. I appeal to all the units to rise up to the occasion and strengthen the CHQ financially by donating rupees 100/-, (Rupees one hundred) per member to the CHQ from the bonus collection.

Visit our BlogSpot
Every effort has been made to keep our blog up-to-date. Make the habit of visiting the BlogSpot daily and canvas among our members to visit the BlogSpot to convert it into a platform for interaction. All the Circle Secretaries should ensure to share their views with the CHQ by posting the comments in the blog. Let thousand thoughts bloom!

With Struggle Greetings,
  Comradely Yours

(T. SATYANARAYANA)

Chidambaram, Home Minister, Ms. Mamta Banerjee, Railway Minister on the issue. , Smt. Sushma Swaraj, Leader of the Opposition, Lok Sabha and other prominent MPs were also appealed to take up the issue on our behalf.

COM. BASUDEB ACHARIA INTERVENED
            Com. Basudeb Acharia, M.P. leader of the CPI (M) Group, Loksabha has moved amendments (Copy enclosed) against the resolution moved by the Government in the Parliament for rejection of the award.

Circular no.18 issued by Confederation

Comrades
The Circular No.18 issued by the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, New Delhi is placed hereunder for your information.


Dear Comrade,

                        Sub: 7thSeptember, 2010 Strike action: our participation.

            We congratulate all our  comrades, who took strenuous efforts in making the 7th September, strike action a grand success.  Enclosed with this circular letter is the Press Statement issued by us yesterday on the basis of the report we have received over phone and SMS. These reports were obtained mostly from the State Committees of the Confederation.  While it might reflect an overall picture of the strike participation in various States, it is necessary that we should review our performance organization-wise and state and region-wise.  Unless we identify our weak areas, it may not be possible for us to take any corrective steps so that we will be able to acquit ourselves creditably in future programmes.  In all likelihood, the Central Trade Unions will step up the resistance movement against the economic policies in the days  to come as 7th September, has demonstrated unambiguously the growing discontent of the workers.  Perhaps in the next phase of struggle, the BMS which has unfortunately opted out of 7th September action may rejoin given the ground reality. 
            Despite our efforts taken even before the 15th July, 2010 all India Trade Union convention in consultation with the All India State Government Employees Federation, the campaign programme could not be mounted effectively.  We are aware of the importance of the  need and efficacy of the campaign programme, the absence of which must have affected adversely our participation in some places.  This apart, it has also come to the fore that the Confederation must now without further loss time initiate some programmatic action in pursuance of the Common issues of the Central Government employees as the JCM forum is becoming a platform for procrastinated dialogue without reaching any tangible settlement on any issue.  The basic issues of anomalies are yet to be settled and there is no indications that it would be done in the near future. 
            The National Council of the Confederation as per the amendment we have brought about to our Constitution in the last Conference, is to meet once in a year.  We should be able to meet in the National Council immediately after the Diwali festival.  To review the strike action of 7th and to finalise the venue and date for the next National Council meeting, we propose to meet on 3rd October, 2010 at 2.30 PM at the Confederation CHQ at Manishinath Bhawan, A/2/95 Rajouri Garden, New Delhi. 110 027.  We request our affiliates and the State Committees to kindly send us a report of the participation of various organizations and the number of employees who participated in the strike to enable us to review and suggest measures for an improved performance in future.  The report may please be sent to the Confederation CHQ preferably by e mail at the following address or otherwise by post immediately on receipt of this letter.  Our e mail address is"  
            confederation06@yahoo.co.in
            A separate notice to all Secretariat members has been issued indicating the agenda for the meeting.  One other issue we would like to discuss at the meeting is the remittance of the subscription due to the Confederation by various affiliates. 

            With greetings,
Yours fraternally,

K.K.N. Kutty.
Secretary General.

NOTE: Kindly see the Department of Personnel O.M.No. 13018/1/2010 Estt (leave). The conditions imposed by them for the grant of Child care leave by the subsequent clarifications dated 29.09.2008, 18.11.2008 and 2.12.2008 have now been removed and the women employees can avail the leave without exhausting the earned leave to their credit  The link to the  O.M. is appended to this communication.
