            2nd September 2015. Historic  Strike  was a grand success in almost all the  sectors of working class whether it is Government Sector, Public Sector, Private Sector – organized or unorganized. Crores and crores workers have taken part in it and established so many mile stones in the history of working class movement. The grand success of this strike in strategic fields like Road transport, Coal Mines, Petroleum, Power, Tele Communication is one of the important phenomenas.

            This strike was organized by the sponsoring Committee of all Central Trade Unions pursuing 12 points Charter of Demands including withdrawal of anti Labour Laws amendments and FDI in strategic sectors, in protest against lend acquisition Ordinance and Bill and peasants distress and for changing the neo-liberal path of development.

            The strike was the result of hard labour of the thousands of Trade Union activists who mobilized and launched vigorous campaign for the months together..

            This strike of crores of workers has given clear indication to present Central Government that now the worker has awakened and he is not going to allow the attacks and dangers being unleashed on him in the pursuance of neo-liberal economic policies.

            This time this strike was a grand success among Central Government Employees.

            In Postal except some circles it was grand success and better than the previous strikes. It shows that the Postal Workers are also not agreed to accept the proposals and recommendations submitted by Task Force Committee headed by T.S.R. Subramanian Ex. Cabinet Secretary as Chairman who laid out a road map of corporatization and Privatization of Department of Post. This is also culmination of anger and protest of Postal Employees that the 50% Work force of this Department i.e. Gramin Dak Sevaks, who are not treated as Civil servant. The demand of NFPE and PJCA for inclusion of GDS in 7th CPC has not been accepted by Government of India. The Cadre restructuring proposals of all Cadres of Postal; were agreed long back but not being implemented. Thousands and thousands of posts in all Cadres are also not being filled besides vigorous pursuance by the NFPE and PJCA.

            The PJCA comprising NFPE, FNPO, AIPU-GDS (NFPE) and NUGDS has viewed very seriously with grave concern the totally negative attitude of the Government of India and Department of Post and has decided to go on indefinite strike from 23rdNov-2015 on the above demands.

            NFPE appeals to the entirety of Postal, RMS and GDS Employees to start preparations right now to make the indefinite strike from 23rd November-2015a grand success to compel the Government of India and Department of Post to concede our demands. Nothing in past has been achieved without struggle and nothing is going to be achieved without struggle. So unite and fight and achieve.
