an extract from the recent quote in our NFPE Blogspot is quoted below:
BABU TARAPADA MUKHERJEE
IN HIS HISTORIC SPEECH AT LAHORE CONFERENCE
OF ALL INDIA POSTAL AND RMS UNIONS ON 09.10.1921 , STATED :
"TAKE IT FROM ME, BROTHERS, THAT PETITIONS
AND MEMORIALS AND SUPPLICATIONS WILL COUNT
FOR NOTHING SO LONG AS YOU DO NOT
ORGANISE YOUR SELF IN A MANNER TO CONVINCE
THE GOVERNMENT THAT YOU WILL NO LONGER STAND NONSENSE"
LET US ORGANISE IN SUCH A WAY THAT
FROM JULY13th ONWARDS THE ENTIRE POSTAL AND RMS OFFICES COME TO A STANDSTILL
Yes Comrades we have to make this historic event happen on 13th July 2010. Let this 13 July 2010 strike of postal employees be a resounding success and let us engrave it in the history of the Postal employees' movement in their fight against the draconic economic policies of the Government which has a severe impact on the Postal Services.
In this context I have been frequently been contact over email and mobile phone about the progress on the demand of System Administrator's after serving the strike notice. To all of you, one fact you have to remember that the Department and the Government will understand only one language that is our united movement which has culminated into an indefinite strike. Only after a united movement we can expect some progress on the demand. Hence don't have any illusion that our Union leaders are having a magical stick and just by swinging the stick everything will happen. Only our tempo to agitate will strengthen their hands. Hence everything is in your hands and each and every individual has to contribute. First ask yourself that what you have contributed and then ask about others.
Recently I had the opportunity to speak to our newly elected Secretary-General Com.Krishnan when he came to Chennai to participate in the Felicitation function of the outgoing Secretary-General Com.K.Ragavendran. During that interaction our NFPE-P3 General Secretary Com.K.V.Sridharan was also present. For those who are asking about progress and updates about the System Administrator's demand here it is as follows.
1. ACCENTURE HAS SUBMITTED ITS PROPOSAL ON IMPLEMENTING TECHNOLOGY IN OUR DEPARTMENT.
2. ACCORDINGLY FUNDS HAVE BEEN ALLOTTED TO GO AHEAD WITH THE PROPOSAL GIVEN BY ACCENTURE.
3. THE ALLOCATIONS OF FUNDS AND GOING AHEAD WITH THE PROPOSAL IS AWAITING A FORMAL APPROVAL FROM GROUP OF MINISTERS AS THE FUND OF MORE THAN 2000 CRORES IS NOT WITHIN THE POWERS OF THE NODAL MINISTRY.
4. PROPOSAL FOR CREATION OF SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS CADRE WITH GAZETTED RANK IN PAY BAND 2 WITH GRADE PAY RS.5400 is already sent to by DOP for Finance Ministry clearance.
5. AFTER CLERANCE FROM FINANCE MINISTRY IT WILL GO TO DEPARTMENT OF PERSONNAL AND TRAINING (DOPT) FOR FRAMING RECRUITMENT RULES.
Now comrades, in the recent meeting with the Member (Technology) by the newly elected officer bearers of NFPE Federation the above information was revealed. The entire process is in the final phase and it is expected to be completed within two months. Still the Member (Technology) Mr.Samant repeats what he said in the Delhi Seminar
"The contributions of the existing System Administrators will not go unrecognized"
No details has been revealed by the Member (technology) about the following aspects
1. Whether the existing System Administrators will find a place in the newly created cadre ?
2. How many Posts will be created ?
3. What is the actual meaning about the Member (tech) saying that we will not be unrecognized ?
Above questions still remain unanswered. As unanimously decided in our Seminar the Ball is rolling in the direction in which we all wished, but whether we will be benefited out of that still remains a BIG question.
I request our comrades to bear this in your mind and participate intensively in the upcoming strike. Department may have hidden plans about massive outsourcing of the jobs of the System Administrators.
DO NOT RESORT TO MASSIVE REVERTING FROM SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS TO PAs. Our leaders are also having an opinion that such a measure is not advisable as it will be like quitting the struggle in the middle. Hence whatever comes let us struggle till the end. Only our whole-hearted struggle till the end will render success. It will be tough journey and there will be many occasions where we may have to enter into tough fight with the department. HENCE DON'T LOOSE HEART. WE WILL UNITEDLY FIGHT FOR OUR JUSTICE. AFTER ALL IT WAS OUR OWN DEMOCRATIC DECISION IN OUR DELHI SEMINAR TO STRUGGLE TILL THE END.
WITH REVOLUTIONARY GREETINGS AND RED SALUTE TO ALL THE FIGHTING SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS.
