Date : 28.08.2019

A Day of History - Equal pay for equal work for GDS employees.

Central Administrative Tribunal - Hyderabad

1. OA No.MA/667/2019   OASR/1657/2019

CH.Laxmi narayana & others Vs Union of India represented by Secretary, Department of Posts, New Delhi.

2.OA No.MA/669/2019  OASR/1659/2019

CH.Koteswara Rao & others Vs Union of India represented by Secretary, Department of Posts, New Delhi.

GDS employees are practically working for more than 8 hours but for the imposition of GDS Conduct & Engagement Rules,2011 stipulating that GDS should not work for more than 5 hours under Rule 3A. This is nothing but exploitation of labour and sqeezing the blood and sweat of labour force attracting the violation of labour laws and Constitution of India.

The Supreme Court of India in the Civil Appeal 2013 of 2013 pronounced that equal pay for equal work should be implemented to all the workers as per law of the land. The above OAs were filed in the Hon'ble CAT of AP & Telangana with nearly 150 documents as evidence and to issue directions to the Union of India to implement the judgement of Hon'ble Supreme Court of India and to provide to place the GDS in the Level - 1 ( Rs. 18,000/- ) of the pay matrix of Central Government employees. The Hon'ble CAT admitted the two cases today ( 26.08.2019 ) and issued notices to the Respondents.

This is the day of  stepping up and surging the way for the  repeal of the selfmade GDS engagement rules,2011. The GDS employees are requested to support , analyse and organise themselves for the noble cause and prepare to file the cases at their respective judiciary. Contact the Circle Secretaries of Andhra Pradesh & Telangana on the following mobile numbers to strengthen the cause, to get rid of BONDED SLAVERY

Our sincere thanks to Sri.D.Kishan Rao Member NC( JCM ) , Sri.Sivaji Vasireddy GS NAPE Gc , Sri.L.Krishna Prasad Regional Representative Gr-C, Visakhapatnam for supporting, guiding us to proceed in this legal fight.
