Sub:- Indefinite strike by GDS unions – reg.
As you are aware that AIPEU GDS and other GDS Unions have served strike notice to go on indefinite strike from 22nd May 2018 for implementation of positive recommendations of Kamalesh Chandra Committee report.
You will agree that there is inordinate delay in implementation of the recommendations of the GDS committee, the GDS staff are eagerly waiting for their wage revision and improvement in other service conditions.
Now, the department is going under technological change and RICT is being implemented in all BOs for which the GDS staff has to work more than required. The business of IPPB will also depend mainly on the GDS employees. Keeping in view of all these aspects, Kamalesh Chandra Committee has submitted its report accordingly. As the benefit of 7th CPC has already been given to Departmental employees, GDS employees are also waiting for since long.
It is therefore requested to kindly bestow your personal attention and cause necessary action to get it implemented as early as possible and atleast before 22nd May 2018.
The entire regular staff is also agitated and extended full solidarity and support to the GDS strike. If there will be any further delay and any victimization of GDS, all regular employees also will go on serious agitational programme.
Hoping for a positive response.
An early action is highly solicited.
