The Postal staff fraternity of West Bengal has shown its integrity and unity again under the leadership of NFPE.
As per the call of the Circle Unions, our comrades arrived at the Circle Office even before the opening of the Circle Office in huge numbers to declare resentment over the attitude of the officers and to take the oath to put a halt to the autocratic mentality of Smt. Rameswari Handa, the Chief Postmaster General.
The mood of the demonstration was militant and the slogans were appropriate. The Circle Administration was made to understand the reality that even this demonstration was token and if they do not change the attitude towards the staff and the staff representatives, an impasse would follow inevitably.
Finally, the DPS (HQ), conveyed a message from the Chief PMG inviting the leadership in a discussion. The Circle Secretaries made it clear that the discussion should thoroughly cover all the items submitted to the present Chief PMG time to time, and she should also give up her feudal attitudes and pretensions. The Circle Administration has agreed. It has been decided that the C.O. will convey the points of agreement in a letter tomorrow, followed by a discussion between the Chief PMG & the Circle Secretaries on 17.12.2009, at 10:00 A.M.
On the basis of the above understanding, the Circle Unions have decided to postpone the demonstration from 16th to 18th December 2009. But from our experiences, we request all our comrades to follow up the developments very closely and carefully, as the programs may need to be resumed any day if the discussions fail.
So please let us maintain the spirit and keep ourselves ready to react any moment of time for organizational requirement.
