Subject: Notice of two days strike on 20th & 21st February, 2013.
With reference to letter No. JCA 2013 dated 22nd January, 2013 from Postal Joint Council of Action stating that all the Postal/RMS/MMS/Administrative and Postal Accounts Employees and all the Gramin Dak Sevaks will go on two days strike on 20th & 21st Feb, 2013 in support of Charter of Demands enclosed with the letter referred to above. Part-I of The Charter of Demands relates to the entire Government of India and perhaps will be examined by Department of Personnel and Training. Part-II of the Charter of Demands relating to the Department of Posts is being examined by us. The progress in respect of these demands will be intimated to you shortly.
2. As you are aware the Department of Posts has a well established system to resolve the demands of the employees through discussions across the table. In the recent past, periodical meetings granted by Secretary (Posts),JCM Standing Committee Meeting and JCM Departmental Council Meetings were held where a number of issues have been discussed in detail and the minutes has been issued to all concerned for solving staff matters. It is felt that no fruitful purpose is served by agitation especially when the problems can be mutually discussed and resolved. Such disruptions also hamper our business and goodwill.
3. In view of the above, it is requested that both the federations and its affiliated Unions may call off the strike so that the Postal Services are not hampered and public is not put to any avoidable inconvenience.
Dy. Director General (Establishment)
