CALL OF INDEFINITE STRIKE IS REVIVED FROM 3rd JANUARY 2012 DUE TO RELUCTANCE OF THE ADMINISTRATION
Central JCA has finally decided to revive the postponed indefinite strike of 5th July 2011 again from 03.01.2012 as the department is acting unilaterally and no satisfactory or effective step has been taken so far to implement the assurances given during discussions on the demands of the indefinite strike called from 5th July 2011.
All employees of the department is experiencing that nothing has changed despite the assurances. The situation of GDS employees and Part-time & contingent-paid workers are still the same. The department is desperate to implement Mail Network Optimisation Project, which is a brain-child of the infamous Mckinsey Consultancy, despite vehement objection of the entire staff-side. The meeting of the JCM Departmental Council is purposefully delayed to avoid the compulsion of statutory discussion with the staff-side. The Federation leadership has detailed the backdrop in its blog.
The JCA has directed us to serve strike notice on 15.12.2011 with huge gathering of our comrades. As we do not have much time in our hands, our leaders and members are requested to please act immediately and jump into campaigning and revive the preparation. The contents of the charter of demands is already known to everyone. So it would not be difficult to take adequate preparation. Let us vouch to stall the postal functioning of West Bengal since 03.01.2012, if the department does not amend itself to implement the assurances right now.
