Extending physical and financial support by one Union to another, to the workers and toiling masses and organisations is quite natural not only in India but everywhere in planet Vasudha. Derecognising a Union for this reason is unheard of and hence unwarranted.
Such solidarity actions are part of organisational constitution and collective democratic decisions of any Union. Derecognising a Union for this reason is un- democratic.
Alleging donation of an amount of Rs 4935/- to a Political Party-CPI-M, donating Rs.30,000/- to Confederation of Central Govt. Employees and Workers and Rs.50,000/- for CITU, a recognised Central Trade Union; all these donations for the purpose of Farmers Movement, Kisan Morcha, DoP-GoI derecognising a Union is utterly draconian.
This action of derecognition, quoting certain rules framed by the Dept/Govt, not any laws, is aimed at destroying a trade union having the support of vast majority of Employees and fighting for safeguarding Postal Services against privatisation.
DoP-GoI must therefore immediately reverse its unjust and unfair decision of derecognition and restore normalcy.
AlBEA extends solidarity to NFPE and AIPEU Group C and joins with the demand for withdrawal of the de-recognition of Postal Unions.
