BSNLEU demands upgraded pay scales for Junior Engineer, Sr.TOA and Telecom Technician cadres.

Telecommunication technologies are undergoing a rapid change. Especially, during the past one decade, technological changes have swept the telecom sector. Consequently, the job content of many cadres have immensely changed. 99% of the DR JEs are Engineering Graduates. They man all the high-tech areas in BSNL. Similarly, the Sr.TOA and Telecom Technician cadres are also handling high technologies. These aspects are discussed at length in the Central Executive Committee meeting of BSNLEU, held online on 22.12.2021. After threadbare discussions, the CEC meeting has unanimously decided to demand upgradation of the pay scale of JE from NE 9 to NE 10 (36400-94500), upgradation of the pay scale of the Sr.TOA cadre from NE 7 to NE 8 (30600-79600) and upgradation of the pay scale of the Telecom Technician cadre from NE 6 to NE 7 (26600-69300). The CHQ of BSNLEU has written a detailed letter to the CMD BSNL today, communicating BSNLEU’s demand for the upgradation of the pay scales for JE, Sr.TOA and TT cadres.

Conducting of LICEs of the Non-Executives - inputs to be provided by the CGMs – BSNLEU writes to the Circle Secretary.

The Establishment Branch of the Corporate Office has already written to all the CGMs, seeking information regarding the number of SC/ST/OBC employees working in TT, JE and JTO cadres. This input is very much required for holding the LICEs. It is learnt that only a few circles have sent this information to the Corporate Office so far.  Hence, the CHQ has written to all the Circle Secretaries, requesting them to immediately meet their respective CGMs and arrange to send the inputs  to the Corporate Office without further delay.

Holding of the LICEs of the Non-Executives - Management has watered down the assurance given on 27-10-2021 - BSNLEU writes to the CMD BSNL.

In the meeting held between the AUAB and the Board of Directors on 27-10-2021, assurance was given that, all the LICEs would be held without further delay and that the notifications for holding these LICEs would be issued by 30.11.2021. However, the Management has watered down this assurance and has only called for inputs for holding JTO(T), Junior Engineer and Telecom Technician LICEs. There are other LICEs of the Non-Executives, like the JAO, JTO(OL), for which no action has been initiated for holding those LICEs. Hence, BSNLEU has written to the CMD BSNL, demanding that: -

 

a)    Action should be taken for holding all the LICEs of the Non-Executives. 

b)    Proper notifications should be issued immediately for holding the LICEs.

BSNLEU writes to the CMD BSNL, demanding immediate settlement of the retirement benefits of the ST employees of Maharashtra circle, who have retired under VRS / superannuation..

BSNLEU is continuously raising it’s voice against the unwarranted harassments being caused to more than 850 ST employees of Maharashtra circle, by the Chief General Manager, Maharashtra circle. These harassments are being caused, based on a baseless and frivolous complaint given by someone, accusing that the caste certificates of these employees are bogus. All these employees have already completed 25 to 35 years of service. Adding insult to the injury to these ST employees, the retirement benefits of the ST employees retired under VRS / superannuation are also not settled. BSNLEU has many times raised it’s objection to this injustice also. Under these circumstances, the Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare, has issued categorical instruction now, stating that, the retirement benefits should not be withheld, due to the non-completion of verification of caste certificate. In view of this, BSNLEU has written to the CMD BSNL, demanding immediate settlement of the retirement benefits of the ST employees of Maharashtra circle, who have retired under VRS / superannuation.

Abnormal delay in the payment of medical bills of the retired employees - BSNLEU demands immediate payment of the bills.

The medical bills of the retired employees are not being paid for the past two and half years. Cash crunch of the Company cannot be the reason. When all other payments are being made, cash crunch cannot be cited as the reason for the non-payment of the medical bills of the retired employees alone. BSNLEU has written to the CMD BSNL today and has cautioned that this delaying tactic is not meant to force the retired employees to migrate to the CGHS. BSNLEU has demanded immediate payment of the pending medical bills of the retired employees.

Special Mass cleaning on Friday’s – BSNLEU writes to the Director (HR), demanding to issue clarifications.

On 12.11.2021, the Corporate Office has issued a letter, wherein it is stated that Special Mass cleaning of the office premises, including toilets, are to be made on every Friday. Nowhere in the letter, it is mentioned that the employees should do the cleaning. However, the words "mass cleaning" conveys the sense that, a lot of people are to be involved in this cleaning. Management has already retrenched contract workers and part time sweepers in most of the places. As such, it is not understood with whom this "mass cleaning" is to be done. Hence, BSNLEU has written to the Director (HR), demanding to issue necessary clarifications.

Non-payment of IDA arrears to the Non-Executives – BSNLEU once again writes to the CMD BSNL, demanding immediate payment..

The BSNL Management is inordinately delaying the payment of IDA arrears to the Non-Executives of BSNL. Order was issued by the Hon’ble Kerala High Court on 17.02.2021 itself, directing the CMD BSNL to make payment of the IDA arrears to the Non-Executives of BSNL. However, it took eight long months for the BSNL Management to issue order for the payment. The order for payment of the IDA arrears was issued on 27.10.2021.
