As regards changing the designations of the left out Non-Executive cadres, the final meeting of the Designations Committee was held on 26.09.2017, and unanimous decisions were taken. However, these proposals could not be sent for the approval of the Management Committee, due to the problems created in the minutes, by the Management. However, this problem was set right in the meeting held on 15.02.2018. Thereafter, the new designations went for the approval of the Management Committee, which has returned the file. The Management Committee is of the view that the new designation of Assistant Telecom Technician should not be given to cadres such as ayah, peon, safaiwala, sweeper, etc., and has suggested to propose some other designation. Discussion took place in today’s meeting. While partially agreeing with the view of the Management Committee, BSNLEU strongly expressed the view that the designation of Joint Telecom Technician should not be denied for technical cadres like Lineman, Technician (TF), Wireman, etc. It was agreed to discuss the issue further. The final meeting in this regard will take place on 31.05.2018.
