In the issue of staff problems and other allied matters
Dated at Guwahati the 9th July,2013
All the Postal employees Unions of Assam Circle under the banner of National Federation of Postal Employees would like to depict the following issues to your good self for its early solution.
1. Finalisation of all pending compassionate appointment cases :The compassionate appointment cases are pending since years together either for non sitting of Circle Selection Committee or on the plea of Zero vacancy position. The family of the deserving candidates have been suffering a lot and therefore immediate positive action for early disposal of all the pending compassionate appointment cases is requested.
2. No abolition of the post of stamp vendors—Status quo to be maintained :
It is learned that a proposal for abolition of the post of Stamp vendors available in the post offices of Assam Circle is in the pipe line of your good office. The selling of postage stamps & stationery including revenue/CRF stamps through the stamp vendors is undetachable and the decision is quite detrimental to the interest of the staff. Further the said work is impossible to be attached to the counters in the present situation of maximum workload coupled with shortage of staff.
The service unions ,therefore ,oppose such kind of step and urge upon you to reverse the decision, if any.
3. Stopping of holding meeting/training/Mela on Sundays and holidays :
It is found to be a general practice of the authority that the meeting/ training and melas are called for in the Sundays and holidays and strict direction like invoking stringent action on non-attending such training/melas is given. The operative staff feels very tired after working intensive duties for continuous six days and they are entitled to one day rest/weekly off which is a universally accepted concept. Deprivation from the right of weekly off/holidays is also against the existing labour laws and cause health hazard. The service union , earlier, also ventilated its anguish and grievances and the department has given a commitment in writing on the negotiation table of the strike of July,2011 which speaks that the weekly off/Sundays would be delinked from any duty.
But the said practice is still going on and therefore the service unions demand to honour its earlier commitment.
4. Non-granting of child care leave :
The Divisional authorities is reported to have not granting child care leave to the deserving candidates. Such action is tantamount to violation of justice given to working women in the light of the recommendation of the 6th CPC. Your kind intervention with direction to act in a positive manner in this regard is therefore requested.
5. Opening of Mail branch on Sundays/holidays in all Head Post Offices :
Recently an order is issued directing the HPOs to keep open the mail branch for pre sorting works of the articles.
Shortage of staff is a perennial problem and the existing staff hardly cope with the increasing work load. Unlike the other C.G employees and also our administrative offices, the operative staff of Post offices are getting only one weekly off on Sundays. The operative staff of the Post Offices have also equal right to take rest on every seventh days i,e on Sundays including holidays. The issues has already been taken up by the NFPE with the Secretary, Dept. Of Posts for reversal of the order and a favourable decision is expected to come.
The service unions , therefore, demand that the orders issued by your office on the said issue is kept in abeyance and status quo is maintained till the disputed issue is solved at D.G level.
6. Payment of RPLI/MNREGS incentive to GDS officials :
Incentive bills of huge amount on RPLI and MNREGS are pending in all divisions due to non
availability of fund. The GDS officials are being pressurised to fulfil the quota of opening RPLI
policies but positive action to value their hard labour is ignored.
The Postal unions therefore urge upon your good office to allot sufficient fund so that all the
incentive bills are cleared at the earliest
7. Non circulation of notice in Goalpara Division in respect of PM(Gr-1) Examination.
Further it is also noted that application for appearing in the departmental examination are called for in the nick of time. As a result the willing candidate do not get chance to submit application and thereby deprived from future promotion. The ensuing LGO examination and the IPO examination are the glaring example.
8. Non supply of Uniforms/woollen jersey and shoes to the Postmen & MTS and umbrella to the GDS :
Uniforms/woollen jersey and shoes/chappals have not been supplied to the eligible staff for years together. Therefore it is demanded that all kinds of uniforms /umbrella are supplied to the eligible officials early
9. Shortage of staff of all cadre Viz, Postal assistant., Postman and MTS/Group
Acute shortage of staff in all cadre like Postal Asstt/Postman and Group ‘D’ is found to be a problem of permanent nature in each and every Post office and the staff are to perform duty of additional man power besides their normal allotted works.
herefore urgent action is requirement to be taken to fill up the all vacancies considering the ground reality of the situation.
10. Posting of lady SPM in single/double handed Post office with non availability of Latrine/Urinal drinking water facility etc. in the rented building :
Many Post offices housed in rented building do not have minimum sanitation facility including facility of pure drinking water. The lady staff posted in those offices suffer most. A few example are------ Dwarkuchi ,Rangia RS in Guwahati Division, Manikpur, North Bongaigaon in Goalpara Division.
Therefore the working condition of all the rented P.O building may kindly be reviewed so that the minimum civic amenities are provided in those post offices.
11. Non granting of MACP to the Postman & Group ‘D’ staff :
The Postman and Group ‘D’ staff are not getting due financial up gradation (MACP) due to non sitting of DPC at Divisional level. As a result the deserving officials are deprived of their due financial benefit.
Therefore regular sitting of DPC at all level may kindly be ensured.
12. Streamlining the duty of the System Manager :
A few postal Assistant with knowledge of software knowhow have been deployed as system manager. The PA/SM are to work both in computer System managing and also in postal operative works as and when situation of acute shortage of staff arises. There is no clarification/definition of their duty. Sometimes the PA/SM are to work day and night in Post Office for restoration of any system failure but no compensation in the shape of monetary benefit is declared as yet. Their TA/DA bills are also stated to be not received due consideration.
Further the post of PA/SM earmarked in Post office remained unmanned due to their outdoor duty which resulted in the permanent shortage of one/two hand short in that office.
Therefore a thorough analysis on the inconvenience caused to the PA/SM in discharging duty is required to be made so as to get a clear definition of the duty of PA/SM.
13. Combination of beats should not be insisted upon :
Whenever a postman goes on leave for short period the concerned beat is directed to be combined with the adjacent beat and also cent percent delivery is forced. This is absolutely not a feasible task.Therefore standing permission to employ outsider like willing retired postman/GDS official against the short term vacancy of postman may kindly be given.
14. Responding to Union correspondence :
It is painful to note that the correspondence made by the Circle Secretary/Divisional Secretaries to their concerned administrative heads do not get reply and all the problems/grievance ventilated through the letters remained unheeded. This is against the democratic norms and recognition given by the Govt. to the trade union.It is therefore requested that necessary action is taken so that the right of trade unions is honoured.We are optimistic that the problems/grievances narrated above will get positive action at your end and with that positive attitude we request you to cause immediate necessary action to get the problems/grievances settled at the earliest.
