2. RESOLUTION ON CADRE RESTRUCTURING
This A.I.C. seriously observing that Directorate vide Memo No. 25-04/2012 /P.E.I dated 27th May, 2016 orders for the restructuring of Group `C` of Postal Wing only have been issued while the proposal was for the Postal, RMS, SBCO, Circle Office, Postmen /Mail Guards & P.O. RMS Accountants,
The Committee constituted by Department on Cadre restructuring of Group `C` employees vide No. 25-4/2012-P-I dated 23rd October, 2013 held its discussions on 4th February, 2014 at 15.00 hrs & on 5th February, 2014 at 14.30 hrs under the Chairmanship of Shri V.P.Singh DDG (P).
An agreement in this respect was signed between the Department of Posts & NFPE & FNPO on 28th April, 2014.
Issue of orders in respect of Postal Wing only is total violation of the agreement mentioned above.Issue the orders on the restructuring proposals in respect of RMS, SBCO. Circle Office Postmen /Mail Guards and P.O. & RMS Accountants at an early date.
3. RESOLUTION ON SCRAPPING OF NEW PENSION SCHEME
This 31st A.I.C., while vehemently opposing the new pension scheme introduced from April 2004, strongly urges for scrapping of the scheme in toto. The argument advocated by the Government that the total outgo on account of payments for the existing central government employees has gone up from Rs. 5,206 Crores in 1993 / 94 to Rs. 22, 618 Crores in 2003 / 04 and there is need to switch over from defined benefit pension Scheme to defined contribution Scheme does not hold water. The value of money and the Indian currency in the global market, the rise in price index and the rise in the rate of inflation are not taken into account. As the cost of living steadily increases along with the fiscal standards, the increase shown in the payment of pensions is only theoretical. Further, it is argued that many countries are switching to the contributory scheme also is irrelevant. Because, so many western countries which are quite often quoted as models by the ruling elite are paying pension as a social security for its employees ranging from 40 per cent to even 55 percent of the last pay drawn.
This A.I.C. further notes with concern that the amount accumulated in the pension fund by contributions from the employees and the departments they are employed is proposed to be invested in the trade of the share market. It is everyone’s knowledge that the share market is a heartless giant and the gambling is known for its fluctuations, many of the slumps are deliberately orchestrated to suit the needs of the trade gamblers. The fate of the hard earned money of the employees will be at the mercy of these unscrupulous elements. This is highly unfair and un-warranted.
The new pension scheme is against the interests of the employees for the following reason:-
i) It displaces the age-old scheme of social security
ii) The fund raised in the pension will be invested in private share market for which there is no security
iii) The contributory pension scheme does not guarantee the equal share as that of the employee by the Govt.
Hence, this 31ST th All India Conference of All India RMS & MMS Employees Union Group `C` held at Pethapur, Gandhi Nagar, Ahmedabad (Gujarat) from 21st to 24th June, 2016 strongly feels that this anti-employee new pension scheme may be scrapped once and for all. It further unanimously resolves to urge the Govt. to drop the proposal and to restore the original defined Benefit Pension Scheme.
4. RESOLUTION ON MODIFIED ACP SCHEME
After adopting the MACP Scheme in Postal, we have taken many issues affecting the employees and modified to the extent benefitting the employees. The major issue is related to the constitution of Scrutiny committees at divisional levels to review the CRS for five years for upgrading bench mark for those who have not been granted MACP due to application of benchmark. The department has once again reiterated the same order to compile the same where it was left out. The following issues were taken and settled by the Federation during the period under review.
i) Constituted Scrutiny committees at divisional levels to review the CRS for five years for those who have not been granted MACP due to application of benchmark.
ii) Clarified that if there is no currency of punishments as on the due date for MACP, it should not be withheld and it should be accorded with retrospective effect.
iii) Clarified that for promotees they need not wait for completion of 20 years of service and they should be granted MACP on completion of 10 years service in PA cadre,
iv) Clarified that opting for defunct Accountant scale shall not be taken as promotion and not to be counted for MACP.
After serving the strike notice, the Department has once again issued a detailed clarificatory orders on MACP vide its No. 4-7 (MACPs)2009-PCC dt 30.06.2011 in which the following is focused.
i) Again the process of upgrading CR entries shall be exercised for the left out officials within one month.
ii) Even after, there is no scope to upgrade the CR entries; the official shall be given an opportunity to represent within 15 days before such ACRs are placed in DPC.
iii) Screening committee may be constituted to consider the left out cases.
Based on the above, the process of MACP would have been completed in many left out cases. Still the following main issues are not sorted out.
i) MACP shall be considered on completion of 10 years service in one cadre. Any promotion acquired by writing the competitive examination shall not be equated with MACP promotion. The Jodhpur Judgment shall be honoured and implemented.
ii) Application of bench mark shall be dropped up to pay band 2 levels
iii) Grant of MACP to those declined LSG promotion prior to issue of MACP orders (ie) 18.09.2009.
iv) Non grant of third MACP by counting 10 years from TBOP in case of Promotees.
This AIC urges the Department to consider and cause orders on the above mentioned items in particular the implementation of Jodhpur CAT judgments. This Federal Council further appeals the Confederation and the Staff side of the JCM National Council to take up this seriously for the immediate implementation of the judgment to all the
5.RESOLUTION ON BUREAUCRATIC EXCESSES
This 31st All India Conference of All India RMS & MMS Employees Union Group `C` held at Pethapur, Gandhi Nagar, Ahmedabad (Gujarat) from 21st to 24th June, 2016 notes with grave concern that the postal bureaucracy in several places all over the country exhibit tendencies of bureaucratic excesses. Coupled with flouting of several departmental rules and regulations to adopt a rule of whims rather than rule of law, the corrupt practices are on the increase. As always the case, many of the corrupt practices are meticulously planned to escape detection and apprehension. The general policy of the department like closure of RMS offices etc comes in handy to these corrupt bureaucrats who reportedly enter into unholy understanding with landlords to vacate buildings by closures. Purchase of computers in unimaginable proportions for exorbitant prices while the market shows drastic fall in computer prices is an area worth investigating for corrupt practices. The practice of spending in lakhs in the name of developmental meetings in star hotels and in the name of marketing of business premium products is another area of bureaucratic excess that requires investigation to check wasteful expenditure. The financial powers have been brushed aside by many PMGs in renovating their quarters and beautifying them by spending lakhs of rupees. The funds allotted for staff quarters were diverted and there is no check in spending by such bureaucrats. The tendency to close the eyes for whatever happens behind the screen of marketing management should come to an end. The wastage of expenditure at every new incumbent occupying a position for decorating and redecorating the chambers of officers to the tastes of new incumbents is also a bureaucratic excess only.
The attitude of the bureaucracy towards unions and staff is antagonistic in general at several levels and we are not talking about the exceptions here. The antagonism is getting accelerated day by day due to the implementation of neo-liberal policies of the Government in Department of Posts. The liberalization policies attempt to attack the interests of employees severely and the Officers being the implementators of those policies often takes it personally and overzealously to reach targets as fast as they can, let it be closure of the offices or abolition of posts and they consider any resistance from unions as intolerable. This attitude leads to bureaucratic excesses in several places where the vindictiveness of the worst kind is witnessed. Staffs are harassed; they are punished harshly for small lapses too. There are some officers who have scant respect for unions and behave in such a way that they are the monarchs and the unions are unwanted subjects. These officers don’t follow the rules and cancel the monthly meetings at their whims; refuse informal meetings to union office bearers and refuse to discuss in a transparent manner on issues that affect the interests of staff; resort to punish the union office bearers at the first available flimsy opportunity.
The FR 17 (a) awarded in Punjab Circle for holding demonstration on leave and the Rule 16 and punishments awarded to 17 officials for demonstration after working hours in the Andhra Pradesh circle are the glaring examples prevailing in the lower level. The lower officers, without any sense but with full prejudiced mind award punishments by misusing the powers. There is no check by higher officers.
This A.I.C. therefore calls upon the Postal Board to issue proper administrative instructions to correct the tendencies of bureaucratic excesses of all kind and ensure function at all levels transparently and according to rules and guidelines.
6.. RESOLUTION ON PROBLEMS OF WOMEN EMPLOYEES:
Based on international Labour Conference decisions of 1919, the Govt. of India reviewed the problems in depth and suggested its opinion before ILC in 1921.
Pursuant to the decision of Royal Commission Recommendations of 1930, Maternity Benefits Act was promulgated in our country. Thereafter the Government of India extended certain benefits to working women employees.
Nowadays, the percentage of women employees have increased steadily in Government departments by virtue of their merits and qualifications. It is their onerous responsibility to actively involve themselves in the Trade Union movement at all levels and this conference appeals their active role in this august organization.
Due to availing maternity leave and leave availed for pre and post-natal care, there is a greater degree of absenteeism among women employees which is unavoidable. After the introduction of child care leave and enhancing the number of days for maternity leave, the need of more leave reserve is felt in the department Sanction of enhancing the percentage of Leave Reserve strength to the extent of 20% is inevitable. There should be no bar in granting child care leave due to shortage of staff and inadequate LR strength.
The Department has issued orders to subordinate offices to provide Crèches under certain condition. These require liberalization. However the number of employees is small, the Department may on payment, enter into arrangement with crèche houses opened by other Department like Telecom etc. to enable the Postal Women employees to leave their Children under the care of trained matrons when they proceed to work. The grant from the welfare fund shall be revised and it can be paid from the state funds instead of the circle welfare funds.
Though the Government has issued orders that women employees should be transferred to the stations where their husbands are serving etc., at field level, there appears to be much delay to concede their request. Many of their cases have not been considered in practice.
The women employees should not be posted where basic facilities are lacking. Even though, the Department caused order based on our request, this is not being properly adhered to.
This A.I.C. appeals the Department to entertain transfer cases to their native places as requested in respect of unmarried women employees and to the places where their husbands are working in respect of married employees without putting any restrictions, reservations or rejections.
This A.I.C. notes with serious concern on the denial of Sixth CPC recommendation on the Flexi working hours for women employees by the Department at Departmental council meeting. The proposal would have been forwarded to nodal ministries instead of rejection.
Keeping in view that women employees both married and unmarried have to serve away from home-stations due to circumstance beyond their control, the following are suggested.
1. That women hostels may be constructed if the number of women employees is large and
2. Rooms may be reserved for women employees in hostels which may be constructed in other Department of Government.
3. Allotting staff quarters earmarking for women employees who are working in those places out of their native places.
In the case of Leave Reserve period, the women employees are indiscriminately subjected to deputations to single handed offices and other offices where basic amenities are not available and offices which are beyond 8 KM radius resulting in change of Head Quarters. This should be avoided.
This A.I.C. resolved to appeal to the Department of Posts to consider the women employees problem in depth and settle those, which are within the ambit of powers.
This 30thA.I.C. further appeals to all women employees working in all the circles to involve themselves actively at all levels and uphold the glory of our mighty Union and also to protect the interest of all.
