A Day to say our good bye

How time did fly by?
through your long journey
on many roads you have travelled

a Glorious joyous time to remember
in God's Grace and Mercy
well done, well done

Laughter, joy and tears,
you have shared with many
colleagues and friends over the years
beautiful memories will be so dear to all
taking the lessons you have taught us all
through the grace of God in to our hearts
God's blessing you were to us all

Made a path to walk on smooth
The cadre restructure is a soothe
Even you leave the post we expect a
Lot for us
Enter into your retirement
with joy and happiness
in the hand of God
to bless the green pastures
of your retirement years

Good bye, Good bye 

Best Wishes for a Happy & Peaceful Retired Life ..

8 Things You Should Never Do in Office

There are lot of people who and a lot of articles/books that will tell you what you must do in office. But there will be very few who tell you what not to do. 
This is where we come in. Every office has its set of dos and don’ts, but then there is also a set of general don’ts that you need to keep in mind. We are here to list these general don’ts for you and we are sure they will help you stay clear of getting embarrassed in office.

1. Peep into someone’s laptop/desktop
The most annoying person in office is the one who peeps into his colleagues laptop screen. Make sure you are not this annoying person. No matter the urge to see what other people are up to, you must save yourself the embarrassment of being labelled the office’s peeping tom.
2. Walk around like you own the place
It is great to be confident, but it is a sin to be cocky. So under no circumstances should you walk around like you own the place. It is advisable to keep your smartness in check and not throw your weight around. Keep it easy going and genuine, and everyone in office will like you instead of bitching about you.
3. Be loud
Oh my GOD!Please don’t be that loud person in office. Keep your voice level in check, do not play loud music and stay clear of all things loud. Loud people annoy colleagues like few other people/things do. Train yourself to talk softly yet be audible.
4. Gossip
We are sure you have heard this one before. It is imperative to stay clear of gossip, but we all know that this is not possible. Every nook and corner of office is full of gossip mongers. What you can do however, is keep your tongue in check. Don’t bitch everyone out to everyone, and don’t allow others to christen you the gossip king.
5. Stealing
Every office goer at some point in time is inclined to steal some office stationery: a pen, a paper, a folder, or a print out. Doing so once in a blue moon is okay, but don’t make a habit of it. Stealing is bad and you will be answerable and payable if you are caught.
6. Lie/Blame others
When you find yourself in a soup or in tough situations you will be inclined to lie or shift the blame of your wrong doing on someone else. If you do this, you are putting not only your reputation at stake but your job too. Always stick to the honesty policy and play fair.
7. Share your personal problems
No one lives an easy life. Everyone has their share of personal problems just as you have yours. It would be naïve to share your personal problems with your work colleagues. We suggest you leave these issues at home and come to office with a clear mind. Remember, your colleagues aren’t your personal agony aunts.
8. Make out
Irrespective of how hot that colleague of yours is, making out in the office is just unpardonable. Making out is an extremely private affair and an office is the least private of places you know. Besides, if somebody catches you in the act, you can bid your job farewell.
This is our list of general don’ts in work environments. Avoid committing these errors and you are sure to stay in the office good books.

1.      Postal Assistant

(ii)   The present Post Masters in 3732 triple handed post offices and also the present LSG to the extent of 6989 will be upgraded to the status of HSG II.

The Official side accepted the above proposal and assured to consider the above and come out with the final decision shortly. As requested by them a common proposal of the Staff side has been submitted to day itself.

2.      Cadre review for Postman & MTS’
(i)        Since the MTS is the common category for all Central Govt. employees, there is no possibility of bringing them under cadre review.
(ii)      As functional Justification could not be identified for the Postman and also the higher pay granted by the 6th CPC, the official side did not favour any cadre review. However official side came forward with the proposal if the Postman cadre opts out from the MACP scheme and agree to take the percentage wise promotions it will be considered. It requires a deep study and the Postman unions will discuss the issue and come out with the proposals.

The chairman conveyed that the next meeting will be arranged in short notice to finalise the proposals.

3.      March to Parliament
The Federal secretariat endorsed the decision of the Confederation National Executive to organize March to Parliament on 26.7.2012 and one day token strike thereafter.

All Circle Secretaries and Divisional Secretaries are requested to book their Journey tickets in advance so as to reach on 26.7.2012 for particiting the rally. NFPE has organized an All India convention on the same day at Delhi on 26.07.2012. Similarly the AIPEU GDS (NFPE) has organized a Massive Dharna before the Parliament demanding departmentalization of GDS on 27.7.2012. The comrades of Delhi Circle desire to arrange a felicitation function to Com. K. V. Sridharan, General Secretary on the eve of his superannuation on 27.07.2012 evening at Delhi. The comrades who desire to participate both the programmes may book the return tickets accordingly.

4.      Associate membership to AIPEU-GDS (NFPE)

The Federal Secretariat held on 21.5.2012 has accorded the status of associate membership to newly formed AIPEU GDS (NFPE). The General Secretary has also requested all the Divisional Secretaries/Circle Secretaries seeking their co-operation in formation of branches at all levels.

Since the fresh verification of membership in GDS cadre is offing and notification for that effect may be issued at any time. It is realiably learnt that the recognition to the office bearers has not been accorded to the AIPEDE union due to the vertical split in the All India Conference and there is every possibility of another Membership verification at any time. It is our prime need to strengthen the organisation which is associated with NFPE and declared to work under the guidance of P3 leadership right from Divisions to All India level.

All Divisional/Circle Secretaries are requested once again to extend full cooperation and unstinted support to the newly formed AIPEU GDS (NFPE).

With greetings,

Comradely yours,

(K. V. Sridharan)
General Secretary
