Letter No. GDS/CHQ/1/5/2018
All Circle/Divisional/ Branch Secretaries of All India Gramin Dak Sevaks Union and All India Office Bearers….
Implementation of GDS Committee report is inordinate delay due to complete negligence of central Government and beaurocrats of Department of posts.
After submission of GDS committee report to the Department in November 2016, AIGDSU has been resorting to various agitation programmes including indefinite strikes in 2014, 2015 and 2017. After AIGDSU struggles only GDS committee report file moved and process took place speedily.
First time in the history of Postal Trade Union movement AIGDSU conducted historical Dharna infront of Prime Minister’s residence for an early implementation of GDS committee report. As a result Dept. sent cabinet note for approval of the cabinet.
It is unfortunate that the cabinet not was kept nearly one month in the cabinet. To put pressure on the government AIGDSU decided to go on indefinite strike with like minded GDS unions.
A meeting was held between AIGDSU and FNPO on 02.05.2018 in NAPE Gr-C office to form GDS JCA. Sri D. Kishan Rao, Secretary General FNPO, Corn. S.S. Mahadevaiah, General Secretary, AIGDSU and Corn. B.V. Rao, Asst. General Secretary, AIGDSU participated in the meeting.
GDS JCA (AIGDSU-NUGDS) issued indefinite strike notice to the Dept. of posts on 03.05.2018. Indefinite strike will commence from 22.05.2018 at 6-00 A.M.
All the Circle, Divisional and Branch Secretaries are requested to Co-ordinate with NUGDS where ever possible for making indefinite strike thundering success.
Implement all positive recommendations of GDS Committee immediately.
AIGDSU Appeal all the federations and GDS unions in the Department of posts that indefinite strike notice will be issued from your unions for indefinite strike from 22-05-2018 in the interest of GDS employees.
All GDS employees are requested to participate cent per cent in the indefinite strike to achieve our genuine demand.
With May Day greetings
