Conf/14/2011, dated 4th July, 2011.

Dear Comrade,

          The indefinite strike for which the call was given by the Joint Count of Action of the Postal Employees has been deferred.  The decision was taken after a prolonged negotiation with the Postal authorities.  We give hereunder the communication we have received from them for your information.  You may inform the branches of the affiliates  and  the district units of this development.

          With greetings,

Yours fraternally,

K.K.N. Kutty

Secretary General.


Consequent on the settlement reached between Secretary, Department of Posts and the Staff Side the Central JCA unanimously decided to defer the indefinite strike from 5th July 2011. Positive settlement is reached on major items of the Charter of demands. Gist of the settlement reached on all items of the Charter of demands will be published soon. We have made it clear to the Postal Board that if any violation of the assurances take place, or if orders on the agreed items are not issued without any delay, the Central JCA will commence indefinite strike without any further notice. We have not called off the strike. STRIKE STANDS DEFERRED. WE SHALL ALWAYS BE VIGILANT. Hectic and elaborate discussions took place with the Postal Board on 6th, 7th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th June 2011 and on 1st July 2011. Secretary Generals and All General Secretaries participated in the discussion.

Central JCA salutes and congratulates all the Circle/Divisional/Branch Secretaries and the entirety of Postal and RMS employees including Gramin Dak Sevaks for the mobilization made by them for the successful implementation of the strike. It is only because of the determination and courage of the grass root level workers the Postal Board is compelled to come for a settlement.
