“MAKE THE NFPE STRONGEST BY ENROLLING MAXIMUM MEMBERSHIP”

          Process of fresh verification of membership is going on. Our entire rank and file is making all efforts to enroll maximum membership in favour of all NFPE unions. This is high time when we have to prove that the NFPE is only the vanguard and first and natural choice of entire Postal Employees.

         Some disruptive forces who do not like the unity of workers have started playing their dirty game by introducing new unions in P-III and P-IV with the word “United”. So we have to make aware the members about it. Our rival unions are also making all efforts to delay the process of verification. One union  which is affiliated with  the ruling class  is also putting  so many hurdles in the verification  process as they  know that they  cannot reach to the goal and want to enjoy the facilities  granted by Govt. in the  name of  limited  trade union facilities.

         Make the members understand that this is the NFPE who has been continuously and consistently fighting for the cause of entire postal employees since its formation from 1905 in the form of Postal Club and thereafter as NFPTE/NFPE from 1954. Many historic and glorious strikes have been conducted under the banner of NFPE and have achieved so many demands. Recently recruitment in all cadres, stoppage of closure of 9797 Post Office and closure and merger of RMS Offices and  halt on Corporatization and privatization as recommended by Task Force Committee, in Postal Services  are our  great achievements, But still we have to travel a long  journey and being  in the main stream of working class  we have to fight  against the economic policies of Govt. of India which  are totally against  the interests  of working class and common man.

           We have to start our serious preparations to make 2nd September-2015 –Nation Wide General Strike on the call of Central Trade Unions, a historic success. This is a big fight of working class to resist the policies of Central Government which are Pro-capitalist and anti working class. Within the period of one year of Modi Government so many retrograde policies have been implemented. The existing labour laws i.e. Industrial Dispute Act, Contract Labour (Regulation and wages) act, Factories Act, Apparentice Act have been amended in favour of industrialists. The Government is moving ahead very fast to privatize most of the government service like Railways, Defence, Telecom, Postal, Banking, Insurance etc. by introducing FDI. Disinvestment has been started in Profit making Public Sector undertakings. Ban on recruitment in Central Government Services has further aggravated the problem of unemployment as lakhs and lakhs educated youth is wondering hither and thither for the search of job. Outsourcing, contractrization, hire and fire policies are paving way for exploitation and corruption.  So being a responsible organization we have to fight against all these retrograde policies of Government of India.

        For fighting we have to make ourselves strong and we can become stronger only by enrolling maximum membership in favour of all NFPE unions and if NFPE becomes  stronger it will be more advantageous  to Postal Employees in particular and entire  Central Government Employees and working class in general.

        So please enroll maximum membership and make the NFPE strongest.
