Staffers file complaint against post office chief

Ramechhap, December 15

Staff working on contract basis at Ramechhap District Post Office, today filed a complaint against post office Chief Manju Sharma in District Administration Office, Ramechhap.

As many as 15 staffers filed written complaints stating that Sharma had failed to implement minimum wages since long though Postal Services Department had written a letter for its implementation.

Registering the complaint along with the letter from the department, the staffers also submitted their signatures to have their demands fulfilled. The staff received Rs 8,000 per month and were protesting continuously for increase in pay. Victim committee Chairman Subba Thapa said they were compelled to knock the door as Dolakha and Sindhuli districts had already implemented the new minimum wage of Rs 13,450. The government had determined Rs 13,450 as minimum wage of staffers.

The department had sent the letter to the post offices of 77 districts across the country for implementation of the decision from November 2.  A member of the committee Lamodar Ghimire said the official concerned had neglected the demands of the staff for long.

Ramechhap DAO said it received the complaint and would facilitate to solve the problem.
