Sub:- Memorandum on long pending unsettled issues of Odisha Circle with request for an early negotiated settlement to maintain peace and tranquility.
It is our constraint to intimate that in spite of writing a series of letters, discussions at various levels from Circle / R O to RJCM, some basic and genuine demands of the employees of Odisha Circle are not being attended to for years together. Rather, the Unions are being grossly disregarded due to non-acknowledgement of even a single letter written to the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle in violation of Directorate’s guidelines issued severally viz. No.3-6/82-SR, dated 10/13.09.1981, No. 10-3/87-SR, dated 08.03.1988 etc., which specify that the union letters should be promptly acknowledged and the matter in question decided as expeditiously as possible. If the decision in the matter is likely to get delayed for some time, an interim reply should invariably be sent to the union. In case the officer or the dealing hand concerned with the matter is on leave some alternative arrangements should be made to attend to the letters received from the union urgently.
But to our utter dissatisfaction, we are in doubt if anything happens as such.
Most regretfully, it is intimated that though NFPE Unions, Odisha Circle accompanied with AIPEU, GDS, Odisha Circle conducted a day long dharana programme in front of the office of the Chief Postmaster General, Odisha Circle on 15.06.2016, neither the staff representatives were invited for a meaningful negotiation nor the action taken report on the demands were intimated which compelled all the Circle Secretaries of NFPE Unions, Odisha Circle to review the position with a decision to bring all the pending issues once again to the kind notice of the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle for immediate fruitful consideration before adopting further trade union activities.
All the pending issues which were taken earlier and some current issues which are already brought to the notice of the competent authorities without any result are annexed here with under the head “Charter of Demand”.
We do expect that our Circle Head will come forward with an open mind for a negotiated settlement of all the pending issues as early as possible and send the action taken report to all the Circle Secretaries signed below failing which we will have no other option left but to adopt Trade Union action by organizing one day Dharana Programme on 19.04.2017 in front of the O/o the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle, Bhubaneswar and to decide further course of action then and there.
