The wages of the contract workers are not paid by BSNL for the past 10 months. Despite BSNLEU and BSNLCCWF organising struggles, the issue remains unsettled. In the mean time, many contract workers have committed suicide because of the financial strain caused due to the non-payment of wages. It is extremely disturbing to note that, one more contract worker has committed suicide in Kerala circle yesterday. Com. Ramakrishnan, who was also a physically challenged person, committed suicide inside MDF room at Nilambur Exchange in Malappuram district. BSNLEU expresses it’s heartfelt condolences to the family members of Com.Ramakrishnan.
