INDEFINITE STRIKE OF GDS – NO FORCE ON THIS EARTH CAN STOP NATURAL REVOLT AGAINST THE ONSALUGHT:
HEADING TOWARDS 7TH DAY TOMORROW- DEMANDING EQUAL TREATMENT FOR EQUAL WORK. ALSO TO STOP THE ILLEGAL ACT OF DISCRIMINATION.
Reports of Dharna, Rallies and Naked show of GDS in various parts of the country is reaching CHQ. Mysore, Udupi,Mandya, Hubli/Dharwad, Karwar, SIRSI, Puttur,Bagalkot,Nanjangud and other part comrades of Karnataka are exhibiting vehement protest against the anti GDS attitude of the department/Government. They are also forcing us to agitate TILL RATIONAL SETTLEMENT IS REACHED.
Today also many MPs have telephonically contacted Hon’ble Union Communication Minister Sri.Kapil Sibal seeking immediate intervention to resolve GDS issues.
In fact in the DEMOCRATIC form of Government like India there should not be any scope for LAWLESSNESS and STRIKES. But STRIKES, THAT TOO INDEFINITE STRIKE like this is forced on the GDS today.
Organise massive demonstrations, Rallies and processions tomorrow at all important or divisional head quarters so that yours voice is heard at DELHI.
GDS STRIKE IS UNIQUE – IT IS THE EXPLOSION OUT OF FRUSTRATION AND ILL-TREATMENT!
KNOW THE FOLLOWING – HOW BUREACRACY INTERPRET L(gist of discussion held with highest level officers, Directorate.)
· OUR VIEW: GDS are working more than the prescribed duty hours and norms and there cannot be any reduction in their TRCA.
· OFFICERS VERSION: This is old system of assessment of workload cannot be helped. Let new Pay Committee take care of this!
· Our view: Since all GDS are working more than 5 hours there is need for regularization of their service in the dept. Information obtained under RTI was furnished where a good number of GDS work for 8 hours and more.
· Their view: Not empowered to consider- take up with next pay commission. The RTI information needs to be verified!
The above examples reveal the mindset of the officers who are reluctant to appreciate reality/TRUTH. We have to seriously think about it and work ways and means to change it. Time is ripe now to decide BE READY FOR ANY SACRIFICE.
