In the meeting held between the AUAB and the Secretary, Telecom, on 02.11.2018, it was informed that, the DoT would raise certain queries from BSNL. Further it was also assured that the DoT would finalise the Cabinet Note on the 3rd pay revision issue, on receipt of reply from BSNL. Now it is learnt that the DoT has written letter to BSNL, raising certain queries. It is also learnt that, in that letter, the DoT has virtually rejected the demands for 3rd pay revision, allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL and payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay.
The DoT has not taken any action for the last 8 months, to implement the assurances given by the Hon’ble MoS(C). Now, they have virtually rejected all the important demands. Hence, CHQ would like to inform the circle and district unions that now we are left with no other option, but to go on strike, including an indefinite one. Circle and district unions are requested to give vide publicity to the employees on this development, and take all out efforts to mobilise the employees for strike action.
