Case of restructuring of PA cadre

No:-       HP/P-III/Cadre Restructuring                      dated at Una the 22.06.2016

All the Branch / Divisional Secretaries,
And CWC Members of H.P. Circle

Dear comrades,

                The 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.

                Now 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.

                As 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.

                Similarly, 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.

                In 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.

                Even, 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 organization.

                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.

                This 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 the implementation.

                The 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.

                You are therefore requested to kindly collect Rs 300/- per member as special donation for defending this case.

                Agitational  program on CBS issues:-

                As 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.

                Demand Day On 10.06.2016

                As per the direction of the CHQ, demand day was observed all over Himachal Pradesh conveying their concern to improve online services.

                Dharna on 17.06.2016

                Dharna at Circle level was organized successfully at Shimla GPO.

                Demonstration at Dak Bhawan on 30.06.2016

                Branches are requested to ensure minimum two representatives from each branch for participation in demonstration at Dak Bhawan on 30.06.2016.

                Periodical Meetings with the CPMG

                Despite 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 earliest.

                10th Federal Council of NFPE

                The 10th Federal Council of NFPE is being held at Guwahati on 07.09.2016 to 09.09.2016. The Circle Secretary Shri H. S Guleria and Financial Secretary Shri Deepak Thakur will attend the federal council.

                All are requested to kindly furnish your valuable feedbacks on the issues confronting at the workplace to the Circle Union

                With struggle greetings

Yours comradely,

(H S Guleria)
