If we think of it, it is very surprising that four years of time has gone, how fast, as our AIPEU GDS (NFPE) formed in the month of April, 2012.
From the date of its formation, thousands of GDS comrades in hundreds of Divisions/Branches in 22 Circles still remained and continuing their militancy and courage with NFPE and its affiliates. None of the GDS went back or reel their membership or loyalty to the other GDS Unions.
With great sacrifice and commitment every member of our Union followed the foot-steps of united struggles of working class in general and postal in particular for the last four years. Not only exclusive GDS demands but also common cause of demands , number of struggles our union has participated during this period.
Even though many of our companion GDS members of other unions commented like anything about the RECOGNITION of our union, with bare-foot we walked with the support and cooperation of Departmental unions, Federations in postal, other working class organizations and all other Central Govt organizations including Railways & Defence.
In many divisions/branches/circles Biennial conferences are going on and two All India conferences were held, obviously, the formation of our AIPEU-GDS branches are continuing to fly our flag in all divisions & Circles.
We laid and build a pucca foundation to our Union with the recognition of large membership of GDS in almost all divisions/Circles, in which it extended to Departmental Unions, Federations, Postal JCA, Confederation of Central Govt Employees, National JCA and many other Trade Unions, what else, except to participate in the verification process to get RECOGNITION from the Dept & Government.
Even though our Union conducted individual struggles viz., Dharna programmes at all levels, Parliament March etc., we are not alone. We shouldered with NFPE, Postal JCA, Confederation, NJCA in many struggles for the cause of GDS besides all Central Govt Employees & working class of this nation.
Simultaneously, except our Union, with the cooperation of NFPE, started ‘Legal battle’ by filing a historic case in SUPREME COURT for getting Civil Servant Status to Gramin Dak Sevaks. Even though it may take some time, the Dept & Govt are bound enough to implement the privatization policies namely, franchising the BOs etc., in the rural net work that which caused the continuance of rural postal system in this country.
GDS are in the toughest situation now. You are well aware of much news heard about 7th CPC recommendations. Our GDS Committee is also to be in touch with 7th CPC as referred in the Terms of Reference. Except UNITY with our postal working class, we cannot march forward.
Our Union has elevated to a higher level with its militancy and larger participation of membership in all the struggle programmes for the last four years.
Now the time has come to prove our strength and ability to get RECOGNITION as number ONE union among GDS cadre Unions.
Our sacrifice for the last four years has to become fruitful.
