      Comrades, NFPE West Bengal Circle has called to hold demonstration today at all non-city divisional headquarters at recess hours against the delay of Central Govt in issuing the order for payment of arrear bonus for the year 2014-15 to the GDS employees. Aggravating the situation more, the Govt has pushed the issue to the Kamalesh Chandra Committee, which has no relation to the payment of arrear bonus. The GDS employees already received bonus for the year 2014-15 on the ceiling of Rs.3500/-, so, they naturally are entitled to the remaining portion of the bonus on revised ceiling. But the action taken by the Govt is hinting that there is no intention of the Govt to make the payment to the GDS employees. 

   Please mobilise maximum number of GDS employees to the divisional offices today, adopt the following resolution from the demonstration and send it to the Chief Postmaster General, Secretary (Posts) and the Hon'ble Minister of Finance, Govt of India. 

      Please note that the demonstration will be held at Yogayog Bhawan as per the call of the All India Union on 3rd October 2016 at recess hours. All comrades of Kolkata divisions are requested to attend the program at the C.O. on that date. They need not hold the program tomorrow.

....................................... Divisional Branch
=== Resolution dated 27.09.2016 ===

    This joint demonstration of NFPE Group of Unions, .................. (name of division/unit) records its deepest grievance and strongest resentment against the delay in issuing the order for payment of arrear bonus to the GDS employees for the year 2014-15. While the bonus was sanctioned and paid to them, non-granting the arrear amount only means denial to justified demand and entitled benefit.

     This demonstration further resolves to record that referral of the matter to the Kamalesh Chandra Committee is yet another cruel deprivation of the GDS employees as this committee ought not have any say on any benefit already paid before its constitution and payment of only arrear portion is now questioned.  

     Be it now resolved that these unions under the banner of NFPE will launch and participate in vehement trade union movements in coming days if the arrear bonus is not granted and paid to the GDS employees through a speaking order within a reasonable period, responsibility of which will entirely lie on the administration.

                                                                                              (signature of the President)
