Any clarification issued by the DoP&T, on Child Care Leave, is automatically applicable in BSNL, for which Corporate Office endorsement is not needed. BSNL Corporate Office has already issued this instruction to all the field units. This instruction was issued by the BSNL CO, based on the intervention made by BSNLEU. However, still some circles keep seeking the endorsement of the BSNL CO, for the clarifications issued by the DoP&T. BSNL CO has once again reiterated it’s position, in response to the letter written by the CGM(O), Kerala circle.
The Corporate Office has issued letter today, constituting the Joint Committee to negotiate wage settlement of the Non-Executives. Chairman of this Joint Committee is Shri H.C. Pant, CGM (Legal) of the BSNL Corporate Office. There are 5 members from the Management Side, including the Chairman. From the Staff Side, 8 members are there.
