of periodical meetings , request for holding the meeting.
kind reference is invited to this Union letter No HP/P-III/CBS/CWC/2016 dated
05.04.2016, HP/P-III/RC (JCM) dated 12.04.2016, HP/P-III/RJCM dated 17.05.2016
and your e-mail dated 18.05.2016 at 11:57 AM regarding holding of four monthly
meeting and JCM meeting.
am of the firm opinion that a meeting with the staff Union bridge a
communication gap between the administration and staff and very valuable
information / suggestions / deliberations is shared in such meetings which is
not usually seen in the official meetings. Despite assurance by your goodself
to hold a meeting , we are feeling that a very constitutional trade Union right
is being denied to us without any valid reason. We are disappointed over this
I have been representing the Circle Secretary of H.P. Circle since 1988 and
have never experienced such a situation where an opportunity which is a privilege
also is denied. The postal employees in the operational level have the greatest
contribution in running the Department and implementing the various policies of
the Department and we as their representative have the privilege to discuss the
related issues in the periodical meetings fixed by the nodal Department.
Circle Union once again request your goodself to kindly hold the meeting at the
earliest which will definitely be in the larger interest of Department and the
are confident your goodself will definitely appreciate our point of view on the
subject and hold the meeting at the earliest to avoid any other option for
at Una the 22.06.2016
All the Branch / Divisional Secretaries,
And CWC Members of H.P. Circle
P-III CHQ has been advocating the case of restructuring of PA cadre for the
last five years. The lower level leadership , the grass root level membership and
even the Circle Secretaries were not aware of the pros and cons of the cadre
restructuring proposal. Even, in CWC Jabalpur the then General Secretary Shri
KVS informed that there will be no monetary benefit to the employees in case
the cadre restructuring is approved by the nodal Department. The Circle Secretaries have neither proposed
this item nor they have supported it in the CWC meetings. However, their
silence on the subject was taken as approval.
the Department vide letter No 25-04/2012-PE-I dated 27.05.2016 has conveyed the
order of cadre restructuring of the PA cadre in the Department of Posts.
per this order, all the single handed and double handed sub post offices will
be upgraded to LSG with Grade Pay 2800 and will be allotted to Circle.
Accordingly, the strength of LSG posts as per this order will be raised from
4980 to 26494.
HSG-II posts with Grade Pay 4200 have been increased from 1198 to 8579 and will
be allotted to circle for posting in triple handed and above post offices. HSG-1 posts have been increased from 1160 to
2127. Due to the up gradation of LSG, the strength of PA cadre will be reduced
from 100059 to 69990.
other words, only an approved LSG official with Grade Pay 2800 can be posted as
SPM any where in the Circle without any monetary benefit. Similar is the case
with HSG-II and HSG-I.
after issuance of the orders the lower level leadership is not aware of the
devastating effects of this proposal on the interests of the staff and to the
Circle Union has discussed this issue with all the Branch / Divisional
Secretaries and CWC members and many of the staff members are also conveying
their concern on this issue and are straightway opposing the order. I have also
spoken to many of the Circle Secretaries who have the similar view.
is such an order for which an effective deliberations is needed to assert its
pros and cons to the staff and the Circle Union have conveyed to the General
Secretary to hold an emergent CWC meeting to atleast discuss its affects before
Department is preparing fast to implement the orders leaving very little time
at our disposal to defend our cause. I have been advised to think of a legal
course of action to halt its implementation. As such, we have to exercise all
the options. Your views and advise on the subject is very much valuable. For
legal course of action, we need adequate funds to defend our case and it is
imperative to raise the funds of the members.
are therefore requested to kindly collect Rs 300/- per member as special
donation for defending this case.
Agitational program on CBS issues:-
per HP Circle, CWC decision HP Circle organized mass Dharna at Shimla on
03.04.2016 to convey its concern on the apathetic approach of administration to
ensure trouble free online services to the public and to mitigate the hardships
to the staff. The HP Circle is the first to enhance the bandwidth of the CBS
offices. The Dharna was very successful despite the fact that one or two
Divisions did not seriously work to ensure participation as per their strength.
per the direction of the CHQ, demand day was observed all over Himachal Pradesh
conveying their concern to improve online services.
at Circle level was organized successfully at Shimla GPO.
Dak Bhawan on 30.06.2016
are requested to ensure minimum two representatives from each branch for
participation in demonstration at Dak Bhawan on 30.06.2016.
with the CPMG
having sent the agenda items and repeated requests , the CPMG HP Circle is
procrastinating the holding of periodical meeting on this or that pretext. This
is first time that a constitutional trade Union right is denied. We are proposing
a very serious agitational program in case the meeting is not held at the
Federal Council of NFPE
10th Federal Council of NFPE is being held at Guwahati on 07.09.2016

Postal Employees Union Group ‘’C’’
Sub: Cadre Restructuring of Group ‘’C’’
Employees in the Department of Posts
A Kind reference is invited to
the DG Posts letter No 25-04/2012-PE-1 dated 27.05.2016 conveying the decision
of cadre restructuring of Group ‘’C’’ staff of the Department. As per this
order, all the posts of SPMs in single and double handed post offices will be
upgraded to LSG i.e the total number of LSG posts will be 26494 after cadre
restructuring and these posts will be allotted to Circle.
Similarly, the posts of the SPMs
in triple handed Sub Post Offices will be upgraded to HSG-II with Grade Pay
4200 and all other existing norm based LSG posts in the post offices will be placed
in the Grade Pay of 4200 and the total number of HSG-II posts will not exceed
And, the existing HSG-II posts
will be placed in the Grade Pay 4600 with the existing HSG-1 posts and the
total number of HSG-1 posts shall not exceed to 2127. However, 735 new posts of
HSG-1 (Non-functional) with Grade Pay 4800 have also been agreed to the senior
most HSG-1 officials with service in HSG-1 not less than 2 years.
From the day, the orders are
issued , we have been getting number of calls / messages from the staff members
/ branch/ Divisional secretaries and CWC members from the Circle fearing the
alarming post implementation results of the cadre restructuring and I am
directed to convey the feelings of the staff working in Himachal Pradesh that
the proposal of cadre restructuring was the proposal of central leadership and
even the other leadership, the staff members have never discussed this issue
and in my opinion none other than the central leadership itself have supported
the cadre restructuring. We feel the orders on the cadre restructuring is not
in line with the proposal of the CHQ / NFPE discussed with the Department.
Previously, all the SPMs of
single and double handed even triple handed sub post offices were allotted to
Divisions. Now, all the Sub Postmasters in the Department of Posts are allotted
to respected Circle inviting large scale Circle Level transfers without a
benefit of single rupee. Similarly, all the officials with 4200 and 4600 Grade
Pay were being allotted to Divisions will now be allotted to Circles.
In other words, none can be
posted as a SPM in single and double handed sub post office other than the
officials carrying Grade Pay 2800 who is regularly promoted in LSG. Similar is
the position in HSG-II and HSG-I. There seems to be no monetary benefit atleast
for one decade to the postal employees working in Department of Posts and the
equal numbers of PA posts have been decreased.
Surprisingly, to whom a LSG
official with Grade Pay 2800 will supervise in a single handed sub post office.
Will he work as PA or a supervisor? We fear large scale retrograde consequences
of this cadre restructuring order both on the staff and our organization. You
are therefore, requested to kindly fix an emergent meeting of the Central
Working Committee to discuss the pros and cons of the cadre restructuring
orders as ninety five percent of our leadership and the staff are neither aware
of the benefits nor the losses of this order.
And, in such circumstances,
there remains no point to return if it is allowed to be implemented without
discussing it in the Central Working Committee Meeting. As such, this order
must be kept in aveyance till it is discussed in the CWC meeting.
