Federal Executive meeting of NPE was held at NFPE Office, North Avenue, New Delhi on 21st February,2019.
After thorough discussion on all agenda items and problems prevailing in Department of Post, the Federal Executive has come to a conclusion that the Postal Administration is not serious to settle the long pending genuine problems of employees. For settlement of 23 points charter of demands on 2 days Nationwide strike on 8 & 9 January-2019 , a meeting was convened at Directorate on 07th January,2019 , under Chairmanship of Shri P.K. Bisoi , Member (P). Thorough discussion took place on all agenda items, but there was no concrete assurance on any issue, thereby we decided to go on 2 days strike on 8&9 January,2019. The strike was grand success.
After strike is over a period of more than one and half month has been passed but nothing has been done by the Department so far.
Therefore, it was decided unanimously that agitational programs should be conducted in phased manner culminating in indefinite strike. As the Lok Sabha Election can be declared at any time and election Code of Conduct will come in to force after that.
So as a 1st Phase of agitaional programme was decided to conduct One Day Dharna at all Divisional Headquarters on 07th March-2019 by the NFPE Co-ordination Committee jointly.
