                                                    NFPE Group of Unions & GDS (NFPE)


               This demonstration held under the banner of above organization and also under instruction of NFPE & GDS (NFPE), W.B.Circle, expresses deep anguish and resentment against the intolerable administrative apathy towards innumerable types of staff problems and limitless reluctance to settle them despite several requests, negotiations and correspondences followed by series of demonstration at different levels from time to time. Even service-oriented problems are remaining unsettled for long. As a consequence, both the service and the staff have been suffering a lot.
Under this situation, this demonstration strongly protests against present administrative inaction to settle staff problems and vindication to/ victimization of our members in different forms and places / divisions.
Today under the banner of NFPE & GDS(NFPE), we resolve to submit our minimum demands which need to be settled without further delay to avoid continuous and severe trade union action.
