CBS AND OUR REALITY ---- GENERAL BODY MEETING IN NORTH PRESIDENCY DIVISION
The expanding migration to CBS platform in our circle without proper infrastructure, network connectivity, back-office support and usual administrative reluctance towards ground reality has already become a nightmare to our staffs, especially to Group-C cadre.
North Presidency Divisional Group-C Union today arranged a special General Body meeting on the issue at 'Mulajor Bharatchandra Granthagar' at Shyamnagar. The number of presence of our comrades proved the relevance and necessity of the meeting. From Gr-C Circle Union, Com. Manoj Shaw, Bijan Chakraborty, Adhir Das, Sonachand Shil were present, while from Postmen & MTS Circle Union Com. Sukumar Mondal was also there. From Divl Administration, ASPOs, Belghoria Sub-Divn Monirul Islam was present all along.
The meeting was presided by Com. Sukanta Das, Divl President, Group-C. After brief introduction by our beloved leader Com. Debajyoti Gupta, Com. Bijan Chakraborty elaborated the backdrop of approval of Post Bank, its connection with CBS, its implementation which has turned out to be unprecedented exploitation and torture of SPMs, P.A.s and System Assistants. All details of the problems related to this issue were discussed in the Circle Conference also. Letter was issued by Circle Union to Chief PMG, Circle Conference also passed a resolution inviting administration cognizance to the problems. But Circle Administration is still ignoring it, so does the divisional counterparts. Circle Union is still trying to negotiate with Circle Administration. If nothing comes out within 17th January, strong program would be finalised from Circle Working Committee meeting convened on 18.01.2016.
Comrades present in the meeting also shared their experience and placed some effective suggestions, followed by Com. Adhir Das and Com. Manoj Shaw with relevant inputs. ASPOs, Belghoria Sub-Divn Monirul Islam gave patient hearing to all deliberations and briefly addressed the gathering assuring all to convey the problems to Divl SSPOs. Circle Union is thankful for contributions of the speakers, especially of Comrades Pralay Malakar, Arindam Roy and Arindam Konar. The response and success of today's meeting shows that North Presidency Division has started to shake off some weaknesses grown in our organisation there in last few years. A new wave of trade union movement is forming and we are hopeful that the glory of the division would come back soon, which was inspiration for many new comrades of yesteryears.
We would also advise all divisions to please give a consideration whether such a program on CBS is required in their place as well. We are of the opinion that it is high-time for holding such a meeting and strengthen the sharing between members and leadership.
