31st ALL INDIA RMS & MMS EMPLIOYEE UNION GROUP ‘C’
POLICY AND PROGRAM RESOLUTION.
1.       In-spite of the reports of recovery there is no improvement in the economic crisis world over and especially in the capitalist countries. The present crisis is due to the inherent in consistencies in the capitalist system and its contradictions have ultimately resulted in the crises. The imperialist globalization policies had resulted in curtailment of social security measures, aggravation of poverty unemployment, large scale,privatization, crises in agricultural sector and industrial sector. The entire burden of the capitalist crises is thrown to the shoulders of the working class and common people of these countries, including our country. At the same time resistance and fight against these policies are also going on throughout the world and especially in India. This 31st AIC pledges full support and solidarity to the common people and working class who are fighting against these anti people and anti-labour policies for protecting the freedom and sovereigncity of our country. This AIC also pledges solidarity with the fighting masses all over the world who are struggling for establishing an exploitation- less society with the slogan “ Socialism is the only alternative”.
2.       The NDA Government lead by the BJP which came to power of the 16thLok-Sabhaelection, has completed two years in office. The slogan “Achhe Din” was given during the election.But it is proved now that the Govt. stands for the rich and corporate class and has declared total affinity to the neo-liberal economic policies. Due to thevigorous implementation of this policies like allowing 100 % FDI in Govt., Public and private sector including defense, Railways, retail, insurance and banking, disinvestment of public sector undertakings, privatization and corporatization of Govt. Department, outsourcing Govt.functions including health and education sectors. Unemployment is increasing day by day. The land acquisition ordinance of theGovt. to facilitate real estate sector, was opposed and defeated by the farmers of our country. To expedite the policies, the ruling class is trying to divide the people on cast, religion and various other issues thereby weakening the unity of the working class which opposes these policies.Various labour laws are amended in favour of the industrialist. The concept of democracy is diluted and on the other hand autocracy is given priority by the Govt. in various institutions.
This AIC notes with pleasure that all the central trade union of the country has come together to resist the neo-liberal policies of the Govt. In the 2015 September 2, general strike about 15 croresworkers, both organized and unorganized and also various other sections like farmers, agricultural workers, youths, students etc. participated. In many states the transport system has come to a stand-still. Central Govt. employees and postal employees under the banner of confederation of Central Govt. employees and  workers and NFPE has also participated in the one day strike in a massive manner. This AIC salutes and congratulates the working class of our country for making the strike a thundering success.
3.       The UPA Govt.was compelled to appoint seventh Central Pay Commission after a sustained struggle under the banner of confederation of central Govt. employees and workers including NFPE, like one day strike, 48 hours strikes, parliament marchetc. This time, on common demands of the central Govt. Employees, one joint memorandum was submitted by JCM (NC) staffside. Regardingpostal sectional demands NFPE and all its affiliated unions submitted separate memorandums to the pay commission. The JCM(NC) staff side has also submitted a separate memorandum demanding merger of DA and grant of Interim Relief.. The JCM(NC) staff side / NFPE and postal JCA demanded Govt. to include three lakhs GDS also under the purview of the 7th CPC and conducted series of agitationalprogrammes. The 7th CPC submitted its report to the Govt., after 21 months on 19th Nov 2015. The report is totally retrograde and disappointing. The NJCA, the united movement of JCM(NC) staff side organizations submitted a detailed memorandum to the Govt., demanding modifications in the recommendations of  7th CPC including minimum wages and fitment formula. The Govt., constituted an empowered committee of secretaries under the chairmanship of cabinet secretary to study and submit final proposal to the cabinet.The empowered committee instead of negotiating with the JCM staff side for an amicable settlement, held only one meeting with the staff side that too fast to hear the views of the staff side and no negotiation was held.Aggrieved and agitated over the totally negative and indifferent attitude of the Govt., the NJCA decided to go on indefinite strike and accordingly strike notice was served on 9thJune 2016 and the indefinite strike will commence on 11th July 2016.  NFPE and all, its affiliates had also served strike notice including the postal sectional demands such as upgradation of pay scales of various cadres. This 31st AIC calls upon the entirety of Postal employees, especially RMS & MMS employees, to conduct intensive campaigning throughout the rank and file workers and make the 11th July 2016 indefinite strike as historic success.
4.       In the wake of aggressive implementation of neo-liberal policieslike large scale disinvestment of PSUs and FDI in all sectors and also amendment to labour laws, the central trade unions have once again given a call for nationwide one day general strike on 2ndSeptember 2016. Confederation of CGE & workers and NFPE being  a part and parcel of the main stream of the working class, has endorsed the strike call. This AIC calls upon the entire postal employees to make the 2ndSeptember 2016 a grand success.
5.       This 31st AIC after detailed deliberations on the sectional issues of the postal employees and in particular RMS employees,Notes with grave concern the discrimination meted out to the  RMS employees while issuing the cadre re-structuring  orders by the department of posts., RMS, Circle office, Postal Accounts, MMS, SBCO staff are totally neglected even though in the cadre restructuring agreement signed by the staff side and administration, all sections are included. This AIC strongly protest against the discriminatory action of the postal department and urge upon the Govt., and Department of Post to take immediate action to implement cadre restructuring for the above left out cadres also without any discrimination. This AIC therefore resolves to conduct phased programme of action during July-September and further urges upon NFPE central leadership to organize serious agitational programmes including strike, if the Govt., fails to implement the orders within a time frame, ending discrimination.
6.       This AIC views with grave concern that the Govt., has not yet dropped the implementation of the task force committee report and MNOP.Further department has failed to fill up about 70000 vacancies in the postal department as per the authentic report of the 7th CPC. The implementation of the IT modernization project without proper application of mind and without providing minimum necessary infrastructural facilities had added further to the miseries of employees. This AIC urges upon the postal department to take immediate action on these important issues faced by the Postal  & RMS employees so that the situation may not go from bad to worse. This AIC further demand the postal department to discuss the above issues with the staff side and settle it immediately in a time bound manner.
7.       Under the banner of NFPE, the AIPEU-GDS wasformed in the year 2012 and it has formed circle/divisional unions in almost all circles  and divisions. All the affiliates of NFPE are extending full support and cooperation to the AIPEU-GDS leadership. NFPE & AIPEU GDS has conducted series of agitationalprogrammes for inclusion of GDS under the purview of 7th CPC, but Govt., has unilaterally appointed a separate committee under the chairmanship of retired postal board member ShriKamlesh Chandra. NFPE, AIPEU GDSand confederation has submitted memorandum to the GDS committees, Evidence before the committee was also given jointly. This AIC declares full support and solidarity to three lakhs GDS in their struggle for grant of civil servant status and for grant of all other benefits like pay, allowances, pensions etc.
This AIC further calls upon all the postal & RMS employees to extend full support and cooperation to the AIPEU GDS leadership- at all levels for collecting maximum membership authorization form in favour of AIPEU GDS, so that in the ensuing GDS membership verification, the AIPEU GDS will come out successful with flying colours with maximum votes in its favour, thereby becoming one and the only recognized GDS union.

PUBLIC AUTHORITIES SHOULD USE INDIA POST SERVICES NOT PRIVATE COURIER SERVICE

            It is observed that several government-departments, public-authorities and public-sector-undertakings (PSUs) use private courier service rather than postal services. 
            With premium postal-services like Speed Post now available at most post offices and destinations, it should be made compulsory for all bodies under central and state governments for compulsorily using only normal postal-services. Registered Post should be used at destinations not covered by premium Speed Post service. Postal Department should take up the matter with Department of Public Enterprises and others concerned.
            In Focus Public sector services should be utilised by all public authorities as far as possible to encourage public sector and to prevent the public money from going to services under private sector. 
            Postal department can also provide special privilege to Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) by introducing sponsored postal stamps against some minimum purchase of postal stamps where such sponsored postal stamps can carry design advertisements from these PSUs but only after being approved by the postal department. 
            Such sponsored postal stamps can have some advertisement cost per stamp like in case of inland-letter cards and post cards. This idea will give increased revenue earning for postal department, and an advertisement-field for PSUs. 

            However Speed Post tariffs will have to be rationalized and revised to be uniform for local and non-local services with equal tariff-rise for every additional 50 gms rise in slab-weight to compete charges of private courier services.
