Irregular Transfer Order of Com. B Samal, Postmaster, Ashoknagar MDG ( Divnl. Secy, AIPEU, Gr.-C, Bhubaneswar) stands modified

Dear Comrades,
As you know, Com. B Samal, Postmaster, Ashoknagar MDG, Bhubaneswar – 751 009  and Divisional Secretary, AIPEU, Group-C, Bhubaneswar  had been transferred from Ashoknagar MDG, Bhubaneswar – 751 009 to College Square MDG, Cuttack – 753 003 vide Circle Office Memo No.ST/26-14(2)/2014(Postal), dated 19.04.2016 and he was the only regular HSG-I official in Odisha Circle to be transferred as such. 

Com. Samal was regularly promoted to HSG-I cadre along with 28 others including 19 Fast Track officials vide Circle Office Memo No. ST/26-15/2013, dated 16.05.2013 and joined as Postmaster, Ashoknagar MDG, Bhubaneswar – 751 009 on 20.05.2013. Thus, as on date Com. Samal has not completed the post tenure of 4 years either in HSG-I cadre or as Postmaster, Ashoknagar MDG, Bhubaneswar – 751 009. This apart, he is also holding the post of Divisional Secretary, AIPEU, Group-C, Bhubaneswar Division and he has never availed immunity from transfer so far. 

In spite of categorical submission of the above facts to Circle office,  the above transfer order was released on the plea of completion of station tenure of 6 years in Bhubaneswar including ad-hoc period in HSG-I cadre. 

Soon after the receipt  of the Memo, an emergent Working Committee Meeting of AIPEU, Group-C, Bhubaneswar Divisional branch was held on 20.04.2016 and the fact was immediately brought to the notice of Circle Union, CHQ and Confederation. Hundreds of NFPE members of Bhubaneswar Division from all cadres ( P As, Postman, MTS & GDS etc) gathered in the campus of Chief PMG Office in the morning on 21.04.2016 to protest against the injustice done to Com. Samal which was personally observed by the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle before entering into office. Soon, Com. R C Mishra, Circle Secretary arrived in the campus and suggested the gathering not to react negatively before discussion with the Chief PMG. Then, both Com. Samal and Com. Mishra met the Chief PMG, Odisha Circle  in his chamber who gave a patient hearing to the grievances of Com. Samal in the presence of Shri D P Dash, AD(Staff), Shri S K Mohapatra, APMG (Vigilance) and Shri D K Samal, AD(PMU) and a cordial discussion went on for about 15 to 20 minutes. Com. Samal requested the Chief PMG to ask the AD(Staff) to justify the transfer with rulings which allow non-gazetted staff members to be transferred on completion of station tenure and if so the methodology of calculating the periodicity of 6 years.  

The Chief PMG directed the AD (Staff) to come with rulings. Showing the transfer guidelines issued by the Department on 31.01.2014, the AD ( Staff ) tried to convince the Chief PMG.   

But Com Samal argued that  the condition of station tenure for non-gazetted staff has been abolished vide DG P & T letter No.69/49/72-SPB, dated 29.08.1973 and No. 69/49/71-SPB I, dated 2 12.1971 where in it has been categorically instructed to transfer such officials to some other post in the same station on completion of tenure. The tenure for non-gazetted Postmasters including HSG is 4 years (DG P & T Letter No. 69/15/79-SPB-I, dated 14.02.1980). In addition, as per Para 4 (xi) of Directorate’s letter No. 141-141/2013-SPB.II, dated 31.01.2014 (circulating transfer policy) Gazetted and Non-Gazetted staff will not be transferred from a post before completion of the prescribed tenure. 

Secondly, it was also argued that the above memo under reference is quite surprising that out of 29 HSG-I officials promoted and joined with Com. Samal, he was the only official to be targeted as such though some of them have opted for Postmaster Cadre and some have retired in the meantime (not all).   

The above facts and figures had already been intimated to the Chief PMG through eMail by Com. P K Pattnaik, Divisional President on 20.04.2016. The Chief PMG, Odisha Circle told that he had already gone through the representation. 

We noticed that without going for further discussion, the Chief PMG directed the A D (Staff) to grant extension for one year since Shri Samal holds the post of Divisional Secretary. Actually no extension was required except cancellation since the memo was quite irregular and issued in contravention to the existing rules. To avoid further arguments and to bring instant solution, we agreed to the proposal of the Chief PMG. 

Again in the recently concluded Circle Working Committee-Cum-Council Meeting from 22.04.2016 to 24.04.2016 at Khurda, the above incident was seriously condemned and the steps taken by the members of Bhubaneswar Division in association with the Circle Secretary was appreciated by all. 

An unanimous resolution has been adopted in the above meeting to protest against the unruly activities of the Circle Office in applying all those rules in transferring non-gazetted staff which should have been applied to others. 

The modified Memo was released vide C O Memo No. ST/26-14(2)/2014(Postal), dated 22 / 26.04.2016. (reproduced below for information of the common members). 

The members of Bhubaneswar Division though happy with the modification are not at all satisfied with the reasons cited in the modified memo. 

The struggle has just begun. The Circle Secretary is soon going to submit a memorandum in accordance with the resolutions adopted in the recently concluded CWC of Odisha Circle. 

Com. B Samal expresses his deep gratitude and thanks to all the NFPE members of Bhubaneswar Division in general and our Circle Secretary in particular for extending their fraternal solidarity  to change the irregular Memo.

Confederation Circular dated 27.04.2016

DATED - 27.04.2016

Diamond Jubilee year National Conference of the Confederation of Central government Employees & Workers will be held at Chennai on  16th,17th&18th August 2016. Confederation was formed on 16.08.1956. The conference is pre-poned from 26th, 27th & 28th August to 16th, 17th & 18th, as the All India general Strike is on 2nd September 2016. The above dates are final. Notice for the National Conference will be issued shortly.

All India women’s convention of the confederation will also be held along with the National Conference.
All affiliated organisations of the Confederation, All C-O-C’s and all CHQ office bearers and Women’s subcommittee members are requested to decide the names of Delegates/Visitors attending National Conference and  All India Women’s convention, well in advance and book their up and down travel tickets without any delay. Last minute, it will be very difficult to get confirmed tickets.

Confederation was formed in the year 1956. The idea was mooted by Com. B N Ghosh, then Secretary General of NFPTE. There were many demands of the Central government Employees which were of a general nature concerning all the Central Government Employees. It was felt by Com B N Ghosh that an organization of all Central Government Employees is required for wider unity and struggle. As such he approached all the Unions and Federations in the central government establishments. Railway and defense federations did not show much interest. However other central government employees organisations showed much enthusiasm.

A joint meeting of all the willing Unions/Federations was held at New Delhi on 16th August 1956 presided by Shri Sarangdhar Das, Member of Parliament. Detailed discussion took place and “Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers” was formed. Nath Pai, Member of Parliament, was elected as Chairman and S Madhusoodhanan of Civil Aviation was elected as Secretary General. Rest is history. In the formation meeting on 16th August 1956 only ten organizations participated. The number of affiliates went on increasing year by year and as on date Confederation is having 112 affiliated organizations.

All the C-O-Cs are requested to celebrate the diamond jubilee in most befitting manner by organizing at least one program by each C-O-C. Senior leaders may be honored in the function.
As already notified, the All India Trade Union Education Camp - 2016 of Confederation will be held at Dehradun on 24th & 25th May 2016. The last two camps held at Mumbai (2014) & Bangalore (2015) was a grand success. The COC Dehradun is actively involved in making all the arrangements for successful conducting of the camp. Detailed circular regarding classes, venue, food, accommodation, climate, contact phone numbers etc will be published shortly. Delegate fee per head is fixed as Rs.600/- (Rs Six hundred only).

All the affiliated organisations and C-OC’s are once again requested to depute the given number of delegates to the camp. The Quota fixed is furnished below.

Name of the affiliated C-O-C’s and the quota of delegates
NFPE – 60, ITEF – 20, Audit & Accounts -10, Atomic energy – 10, Civil Accounts-10
All other affiliated organisations -3 each.
COC West Bengal -20, COC Kerala-15, COC Karnataka-10, COC Tamilnadu-15, COC Andhra-10
COC Delhi-15, All other COCs- 3 each

Please instruct the delegates to book their travel tickets immediately.

2016 May 1st may be observed as May Day at all important centers jointly with other fraternal organisations. The importance of the International Workers Day and the need to strengthen the unity of working class by building up class-oriented militant struggle against the imperialist neo liberal globalization policies may be explained to the workers

The national convention of workers at Mavilanka Hall,  New Delhi on 30.03.2016 under the banner of all Central Trade Unions(except BMS) and other Federations/Unions/Associations has decided to organize one day ALL INDIA GENERAL STRIKE  on 2nd September 2016 against the anti - people anti- labor policies of the NDA Govt. The national Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers call upon all its affiliated organizations and C-O-Cs to conduct intensive campaign and preparations for ensuring maximum participation of Central government Employees in the general strike. All affiliated organisations are requested to issue their own separate circulars to their lower units instructing them to participate in the strike. Central Government Employees are the worst victims of the neo liberal policies of the NDA Government and hence it is our duty to make the strike a grand success.

The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) has decided to serve indefinite strike notice to the Govt on 9th June 2016 and to commence indefinite strike from 11th July 2016, if the Govt fails to come to a negotiated settlement on 7th CPC related issues with the JCM National Council Staff Side. In the discussion held on 1st March 2016 with the empowered committee of Secretaries headed by Cabinet Secretary, the Government has not disclosed its mind on any of the demands including minimum wage. Thereafter no discussion took place. NJCA has given enough time as requested by the Government by postponing the strike to July 11th. 7th CPC report was submitted to Govt on 19th November 2015 and almost five months are over now. The developments that are taking place in the country shows that Modi Govt is becoming more and more and more aggressive towards the workers and common people. Unless we go for an indefinite strike, the Govt may not modify the retrograde recommendations of the 7th CPC. Confederation National Secretariat calls up on all its affiliates and C-O-C’s to continue the campaign and prepare the rank and file membership to go for indefinite strike from July 11th. All affiliates should serve the strike notice on June 9th to their respective Departmental heads. Copy of the strike notice should be sent to all lower units without fail. Branch/Units of some of the affiliates of confederation has complained that their All India leadership has not issued any circular or instructions to them to participate in the strike. Without getting instructions from higher bodies they are reluctant to participate in the strike. Hence it is once again requested to all affiliates of Confederation that:-
(1)    Clear instructions may be issued to all lower units now itself to participate in the July 11thindefinite strike.
(2)    Copy of the strike notice served to the Departmental head on  9th June 2016 should be sent to all lower units

With May Day Greetings

Yours fraternally
(M. Krishnan)
Secretary General
