Formation of All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association
The Department of Posts is one of the largest Central Government Departments next to Railways and Defence and the strength of Pensioners of Postal Department is also one of the biggest in the country. NFPE in its 9th Federal Council had resolved to extend full support and solidarity to the efforts of mobilizing the entirety of Pensioners of Postal Department, especially in the specific background of very serious attacks on Pension and Social Security of all Pensioners and Government Employees under LPG policies of Central Government. We also note with concern that despite the existence and functioning of different Pensioners’ Organizations in the country, more than 80% of Postal Pensioners remain unorganized.
This weakness has to be eliminated in order to combat the attacks on Pension and Social Security. Mobilization of all Pensioners of Postal and RMS disregarding their union affiliations in the past is the need of the hour.
In this background, the National Federation of Postal Employees extends all support to the endeavor of mobilizing the entirety of Pensioners of the Department of Posts in the country by our retired Comrades, who have served in various capacities in the Postal Unions in the past.
The name of the new Organization will be All India Postal & RMS Pensioners Association.
A Steering Committee formed by the senior retired comrades and headed by the under-mentioned comrades with the former Secretary General of NFPE Comrade K.Ragavendran as the General Convenor should be rendered all assistance and help by the entirety of NFPE Organizations at all levels in order to build a strong organization for the Postal Pensioners.
