GMTD, Ludhiana, issues legal notice to pensioners for participating in demonstrations.

The arrogant and highhanded behaviour of the GMTD, Ludhaina, is being repeatedly taken to the notice of the CMD BSNL and the Director (HR), by BSNLEU. Similarly, the sexual harassments in Ludhiana district are also taken to the notice of the CMD BSNL and the Director (HR). However, the Corporate Management is remaining as a silent spectator, for reasons best known to them. Recently, the circle union of BSNLEU, Punjab, gave call for demonstrations, seeking settlement of some long pending issues. This demonstration was well organised in Ludhiana also. However, the GMTD, Ludhiana, has issued legal notice to 7 retired employees, for participating in the demonstration. This only highlights the arrogant and highhanded behaviour of the GMTD, Ludhiana, who is abusing his official power. BSNLEU has once again written to the Director (HR), demanding immediate action. CHQ’s letter is enclosed.

Deadlock in BSNL’s 4G launching – BSNLEU writes to Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw, Hon’ble Minister of Communications..

BSNLEU has written a letter to Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw, Hon’ble Minister of Communications, regarding the deadlock that has arisen in BSNL’s 4G launching. In the letter written yesterday, BSNLEU has pointed out that TCS has still not completed the Proof of Concept (PoC). It means, TCS has not proved that it is having the requisite technology for supplying 4G equipments to BSNL. Further, the purchase order placed by BSNL on 31st March, 2022, for purchasing 6,000 BTSs has not also been approved by TCS. BSNLEU has also pointed out that BSNL can launch it’s 4G service expeditiously in the South and West Zones, by way of upgradation of the BTSs, which can be done by Nokia.

BSNLEU writes to the CMD BSNL, vehemently opposing the Corporate Office letter belittling AUAB’s dharna..

The AUAB organised a successful dharna on 21-06-2022, demanding settlement of the burning HR issues of the Executives and Non-Executives. On 23-06-2022, the Corporate Office issued a letter, wherein  the Management has tried it’s best to cook-up the figures relating to the number of employees who participated in the dharna and thereby tried to convey a message to all that, the dharna has become a failure. Never in the past, the Management had stooped to such a low level of cooking up the figures and to paint the picture that, the agitation called on by the unions and associations had become a failure. BSNLEU has written a letter to the CMD BSNL, severely condemning this unwarranted and uncalled for action of the Management, meant to belittle the unions and associations of BSNL.

JTO LICE mess – Management tries to come out by holding one special JTO LICE – BSNLEU once again writes to the CMD BSNL, demanding to hold the JTO LICE as per the vacancies existed as on 31.01.2020.

BSNLEU is continuously taking up the problem being faced by the JTO LICE candidates in 20 circles. As is already informed, there is no vacancy in 11 circles and only very few vacancies in 9 circles. The last JTO LICE was held on 26.05.2019, for the vacancy year 2017-18. As such, the JTO LICE should be conducted, considering the vacancies of 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21. However, the Management says that, the vacancies of the years 2018-19 and 2019-20 are abolished under Restructuring. At the same time, the Management has given JTO to SDE promotions for the vacancies of the years 2018-19 and 2019-20 also. Is this not discriminatory and step-motherly attitude? Tomorrow, the same scenario is going to arise in the other LICEs of the Non-Executives, like JE LICE, JAO LICE and TT LICE. This cannot be accepted. Further, to come out of the mess that it has created, the Management now tries to hold one special JTO LICE, by diverting the Direct Recruitment quota posts. They say that, the grievance of the candidates of the 20 circles, where there is nil vacancy or only few vacancies, can also appear in this LICE. However, as per this LICE, the selected candidates of the 20 circles will be posted in far away circles and it will take 10 to 12 years for them to get transfer back to their home circles. Hence, BSNLEU has once again written to the CMD BSNL, demanding to hold the JTO LICE with the posts that were available as on 31.01.2020.

The CHQ of BSNLEU is receiving complaints from many circles, stating that the Management has stopped honouring the retiring employees with shawl, memento and cash amount.

However, in the name of curtailing expenditures, the Management has stopped implementing the above decision of the Welfare Board. Hence, BSNLEU has written a letter to the Director (HR) today, demanding to implement the Welfare Board decision in honouring the retiring employees with shawl, memento and cash amount. BSNLEU has also demanded that the amount for shawl and memento should be increased, keeping the price rise into consideration.

AUAB writes to the CMD BSNL, opposing the engaging of a top consultant for the mobile vertical.

BSNL corporate office has issued advertisement for engaging a top consultant, from among the retired CGM/PGM etc., to be posted in the mobile vertical. The salary for this consultant will be Rs.1, 00,000/ per month, with conveyance of Rs.25, 000/ per month, flight travel etc. The consultant will be initially engaged for six months and would be extended up to 3 years. BSNL has never witnessed engagement of a consultant at such a high level and also for such a long duration. The advertisement gives rise to the suspicion, whether BSNL is a Public Sector company or a private limited company. It is our bitter experience that, consultants have been engaged in BSNL in the past, only to favour certain individuals. BSNL is having a well-defined recruitment system. Hence engagement of consultants at such high level and that too for such a long period, is totally unwarranted. BSNL’s advertisement, contained in the letter cited under reference, has evoked widespread suspicion and resentment among the employees. Hence the AUAB has written to the CMD BSNL, demanding to drop the proposal to engage such a top consultant. AUAB’s letter is enclosed.

Non-declaration of the results of the JTO LICE conducted in Punjab circle on 26.05.2019 – BSNLEU takes up the issue in the Formal Meeting with the Director (HR).

The results of the JTO LICE, under 50% quota, conducted in Punjab circle on 26.05.2019 are not yet declared, as a result of which the candidates are completely frustrated and demoralised. This problem is out and out a creation of the Punjab circle administration. They conducted the exam, without carrying forward the unfilled vacancies of the previous exam, as a result of which many court cases came. The problem got complicated due to the contradictory statements made by the Punjab circle administration, in the Hon’ble CAT, Chandigarh. BSNLEU has already discussed this issue with the Director (HR) many times. Again, this issue is taken up as an item for discussion in the forthcoming Formal Meeting with the Director (HR).

Canara Bank and the Union Bank of India refuse to renew MoUs with BSNL – BSNLEU demands that the Management should approach other nationalised banks for signing MoUs.

The MoUs signed by BSNL with the Canara Bank and the Union Bank of India have expired long back. Both the Canara Bank and the Union Bank of India have not come forward to renew the MoUs. This is mainly because, in the past, the BSNL Management had deducted the EMI amounts from the salaries of the employees, but did not remit the same on time to the banks. Due to the non-availability of various loans, the employees are suffering. BSNLEU has discussed this issue many times with CMD BSNL. Yesterday, BSNLEU has written letter to the CMD BSNL, suggesting that, the BSNL Management should approach other nationalised banks for signing MoUs for the extension of various loans to the employees.

CHQ writes to the CMD BSNL, demanding to refund the unlawful recovery made from VRS retirees in UP(East) circle.

Employees who take House Building Advance, have to take insurance. This is a coverage for any damage that might be caused to the building, on account of fire, flood, etc. In Sultanpur SSA of UP(East), 17 Non-Executives had taken HBA and had already repaid the entire amount with interest. These 17 Non-Executives have retired under VRS. Now, the Management has recovered penal interest from their exgratia amount, stating that they had not taken insurance coverage for the HBA that they had taken. This is a violation of the Hon’ble Supreme Court order. The CHQ has written to the CMD BSNL, demanding to refund the recovered amount.

Favouritism in sanctioning special increments / promotions to the sports personnel - BSNLEU writes to the CMD BSNL demanding to take action.

BSNLEU is continuously pressurising the Corporate Management for the granting of special increments and promotions to the outstanding sports personnel, based on the recommendations of the concerned circle administrations. Without approving these cases, the BSNL Corporate Office is taking steps to frame a new Career Progression Scheme for BSNL’s sports personnel. While not considering the recommendations made by the circle administrations, the Corporate Office has sanctioned special increments only to three officials worked / working in the Corporate Office. This is sheer favouritism and smacks of a scam. Hence, BSNLEU has written letter to the CMD BSNL today, demanding immediately to approve all the recommendations made by the circle administrations and also to look into irregularities in this connection. BSNLEU has also demanded that any new Career Progression Scheme, should be finalised only after taking into account the views of the Recognised Trade Unions.
