CWC AT JAIPUR A GRAND SUCCESS
AIPAEA has successfully held its CWC at Jaipur from 27-02-13 to 01-03-13. Delegates and Observers from 14 Circles attended the CWC. Com. M.Krishnan, Secretary General, NFPE, Com. I.S.Dabas, General Secretary, P-4 and Com. Giriraj Singh, General Secretary, R-3 attended and addressed the CWC. AIPAEA is privileged to get the CWC inaugurated by Com. S.K.Vyasji, the senior leader and President of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers.
CWC commenced with the flag hoisting by Com. A.P.Sastry, former President of AIPAEA(National flag), Com.M.Krishnan, Secretary General NFPE (NFPE flag) and Com.S.Santosh Kumar, President AIPAEA (AIPAEA flag). Rich tributes were paid to Late Com. O.P.Gupta and other martyres. The inaugural session was graced by Sri.Dinesh Jainy, D.A(P), Jaipur and wished that the CWC a great success. Comrade S.K.Vyasji in his detailed inaugural speech explained the genesis of each demand of the Central Government employees and the struggles waged to achieve those demands. He exhorted one and all to take the movement forward by total support and participation in future struggles. Com. M.Krishnan, Secretary General, NFPE, congratulated all the Postal Accounts employees for their participation in the 48 hours strike from 20-21 Feb.2013. In his inspiring speech he narrated the sacrifices of our great leaders Com. Babu Tarapada, Com.Dada Gosh, Com.Adi and Com. N.J.Iyer, on whose sacrifices the NFPE has been built. It is the duty of each member to emulate these great leaders. Com. Krishnan elaborated the movements launched against the privatization and out-sourcing policies of the Central Government. The way the entire working class of Kerala stood by the two dismissed employees by raising 24 lakhs of rupees in a single day to defend the cases and to support the families of those dismissed employees is a shining example of the unity of the working class. This was possible only through sustained efforts of the leaders to organize the employees and workers. Com. Krishnan explained the sweeping changes that are going to come in the Postal Department because of the induction of large scale technology. Department is delaying the Cadre restructuring and NFPE extends full support to AIPAEA to get its Cadre restructuring proposal implemented. Secretary General advised the CWC to discuss the changes and challenges and get prepared to protect the employees. Com. I.S.Dabas explored the pre-and post 1991 scenario in the working class movement. He said that the working class and common man of this country needs…” Bheek nahin adhikar chahiye. Anudan nahin Rojgaar chahiye” and inspired the delegates to fight for rights by strengthening the organizations through live interaction with the membership. Com. Giriraj Singh, General Secretary, R-3 advised the CWC to thoroughly review the strike participation and take measures to strengthen the Association. He wished all success to AIPAEA. Com.

The important thing to be noted is the involvement of all the activists, women members and the Managing Committee members of Jaipur unit in organizing this CWC meetings. Jaipur comrades should make a review in the Executive Committee meeting and make efforts to keep up this tempo forever. CHQ and on behalf of all the delegates I convey my sincere thanks to Jaipur unit for making this event a memorable one.

Let’s strive hard to take the AIPAEA to the new heights.
The CHQ will forward all the Resolutions to the Authorities. The Resolutions are not mere formality. We will back up these resolutions with appropriate programme of action. CHQ soon will chalk out the programme and intimate the units for implementation.
CHQ has filed the Caveat in the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi. CHQ also requesting the Department to implement the stepping up judgment without further litigation. The case filed in the CAT Chennai will come up for hearing in this month. CHQ will inform the further developments in this case.

Appropriate action will be taken by the CHQ. In the CWC it has been decided to raise funds from the members to
fight the cases in the Court of law. I request all the units to rise up to the occasion.
GR.B STATUS TO THE SENIOR ACCOUNTANT CADRE
Finally, order has been issued by the PA wing and the same order could have been issued by the PA wing two years back.

I convey my sincere thanks to all the Authorities for taking a favourable decision in this regard.

CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
March 8th is International Women’s Day. My greetings to all our women comrades on this day. AIPAEA will always remember the contribution of our lady members in strengthening our Organisation. They are the cause of success of many movements launched by AIPAEA and NFPE. There is every need to strengthen the participation of women employees in the activities of AIPAEA. It is our duty to ensure that the funds in the gender budget at the Circle level is properly utilized. At all Circles the AIPAEA leadership should take up the issues of providing ladies room and other amenities to our lady comrades. Involve the lady comrades and get their needs represented through AIPAEA to spend funds from the gender budget.
