Postal employees threaten to go on indefinite strike

The union has been demanding appointment of staffs, implementation of proper pension scheme, opposing the idea of one delivery point and one post office system of the government, Union General Secretary M Krishnan told reporters here today.

The members of the union would launch a demonstration infront of the Dak Bhawan, New Delhi to apprise the demands, Krishnan said.

Meanwhile, he said the union would also submit its memorandum to the government.
"We have been demanding for years now but nobody is listening. The postal employees are worst sufferer in the present situation," he added.

"The staff strength has been reduced considerably while the work load has been increasing day by day. The area of operation has gone beyond reach because of lack of adequate staff," the trade union leader said.

Krishnan was here to attend the 39th central working committee meeting of the union held yesterday.

The working committee discussed various aspects of the worker's problem which was attended by representatives from across the country.
