NORTH BENGAL DIVISIONS HOLD DEMONSTRATION AGAINST FRANCHISEE OUTLETS : CIRCLE UNIONS WROTE TO CIRCLE HEAD IN PROTEST
Despite repeated communication of the stand of NFPE Group of Unions to the administration regarding outsourcing of Postal functioning like Franchisee Outlets, the North Bengal Regional Administration has taken up efforts to open such outlets in the NB divisions. Notifications have been published in local newspapers, divisional heads are also actively pursuing this scheme, which is nothing but expansion of postal service in privatised shape.
All divisions in North Bengal Region have staged demonstration today at divl headquarters and sent savingrams to C.O. & R.O. against implementation of this scheme. The Circle Unions have written to the Chief Postmaster General, with a copy to the PMG (NB & Sikkim Region), requesting to halt further advancement.
All divisional secretaries in West Bengal Circle are requested to communicate the news widely and prepare to build up movement on urgent call on this issue. It is our responsibility to save our establishment, while the Govt itself is trying to destroy it.
