कर्मचारियों को VRS ऑप्शन वापस लेने का आव्हान किया जाएगा- ट्रेड यूनियन्स की,  सेक्रेटरी टेलीकॉम और CMD BSNL को चेतावनी...

VRS 2019 की खामियों कमियों को समझे बगैर कर्मचारियों ने बड़ी संख्या में VRS हेतु ऑप्ट किया है। VRS से जुड़े कई मुद्दों का निराकरण किए बगैर BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा कर्मचारियों को VRS पर जाने हेतु दबाव बनाया जा रहा है। पेंशन कम्युटेशन, पूर्व दिनांक से 3rd PRC की पात्रता, रिटायरमेंट की उम्र के संबंध में 2000 में दिए गए वादे (committment) का सम्मान, ट्रांसफर और वर्क लोड की धमकियां आदि कुछ मुद्दे हैं जिनका समाधान जरूरी है। जो कर्मचारी VRS पर जाएंगे उन्हें पेंशन कम्युटेशन और  3rd PRC की पात्रता जैसे मुद्दों का निराकरण न होने की स्थिति में बहुत अधिक नुकसान होगा। इन मुद्दों के शीघ्र निराकरण की मांग करते हुए BSNLEU, BTEU, FNTO, BSNL MS, BSNL ATM और BSNL OA ने 25.11.2019 को एक दिवसीय भूख हड़ताल का आव्हान किया है। इन संगठनों ने सेक्रेटरी टेलीकॉम और CMD BSNL को लिखा है कि इन मुद्दों का निराकरण न होने की स्थिति में कर्मचारियों को VRS ऑप्शन वापस लेने का आव्हान किया जाएगा।

VRS और अन्य महत्वपूर्ण ज्वलंत मुद्दों के लिए 25.11.2019 को देश भर में व्यापक (massive) भूख हड़ताल...

BSNLEU द्वारा 20.11.2019 से होने वाली 3 दिवसीय भूख हड़ताल वापिस लिए जाने पर अपनी नाराजगी व्यक्त की जा चुकी है। AUAB के सभी घटकों में भूख हड़ताल करने के मुद्दे पर आम सहमति न बन पाने की वजह से कार्यक्रम  त्यागना पड़ा। फिर भी, BSNLEU ने महसूस किया कि VRS से जुड़े महत्वपूर्ण मुद्दों और कर्मचारियों के अन्य ज्वलंत मुद्दों के लिए आंदोलनात्मक कार्यक्रम करना जरूरी है। विगत दो दिनों में, आंदोलन कार्यक्रम आयोजित करने के लिए नॉन एग्जीक्यूटिव्ज की सभी ट्रेड यूनियन्स से संपर्क किया गया। परिणामस्वरूप, विभिन्न संगठन 25.11.2019 को कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस, सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट लेवल पर एक दिवसीय भूख हड़ताल आयोजित करने के लिए सहमत हुए। BSNLEU का अन्य ट्रेड यूनियन्स को इस भूख हड़ताल से दूर रखने का कोई उद्देश्य नही है। सभी संगठन, जो VRS के प्रकरण में हो रहे अन्याय और अन्य मुद्दों के खिलाफ अपनी आवाज उठाने के इच्छुक हैं, 25.11.2019 को भूख हड़ताल करने हेतु साथ आए हैं। सभी सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट यूनियन्स से अनुरोध है कि वें अन्य सहभागी संगठनों से त्वरित संपर्क कर 25.11.2019 को, एक दिवसीय हड़ताल व्यापक तौर पर आयोजित करें।

Call will be given to the employees for the withdrawal of VRS option – Trade Unions warn the Secretary, Telecom and the CMD BSNL.

Without knowing the pit falls in the VRS 2019, a large number of employees have opted for VRS. Without settling many issues related to the VRS, the BSNL Management is forcing the employees to go on VRS. Commutation of pension, eligibility for 3rd PRC retrospectively, honouring the commitment given in 2000, about retirement age, threats of transfers and workload, are some of the important issues need to be sorted out. Those who go on VRS will face heavy loss if pension commutation and eligibility to 3rd PRC issues are not settled. The one day hunger strike on 25.11.2019, has been called on by BSNLEU, BTEU, FNTO, BSNL MS, BSNL ATM and BSNL OA, demanding to sort out the issues urgently. These organisations have written to the Secretary, Telecom and to the CMD BSNL that the employees will be called on to withdraw their VRS options, if these issues are not settled.

Massive hunger strike throughout the country on 25.11.2019, on the crucial issues related to VRS and other burning problems.

BSNLEU has already expressed it’s unhappiness over the withdrawal of the 3 day hunger strike, which was to be held from 20.11.2019. Since there was no unanimity among all the constituents of the AUAB, to go ahead with the hunger strike, the programme had to be dropped. Still, BSNLEU strongly felt the need of an agitational programme to ensure settlement of the crucial issues related to VRS, as well as other burning issues of the employees. For the past two days, BSNLEU approached all the trade unions of the Non-Executives for organising a struggle. As a result of this, various organisations agreed to organise a one day hunger strike on 25.11.2019 at the Corporate Office, Circle and District levels. The BSNLEU has no intention to exclude any trade union from this hunger strike. All the organisations willing to raise their voice against the injustices in the matter of VRS and other issues have joined together for organising the hunger strike on 25.11.2019. All the circle and district unions are requested to immediately contact the other participant organisations for massively organising the one day hunger strike on 25.11.2019.

The 3 day hunger strike from 20th November, 2019 stands postponed.

The outcome of the talks held yesterday, between the AUAB and the Director (HR), is not at all satisfactory. Only assurance given is that, salary will be paid on 28th. Then what about November salary? No answer. Most importantly, there is no improvement on the issue of remittance of recoveries, which is hurting the employees the most. Similarly, no improvement on contract workers' wages. No improvement in any of the problems related to the VRS optees. What about reduction of retirement age to 58 years? What is the assurance on 30% superannuation benefit? The BSNL Management is only trying to save their skin, but not worried about the problems of the employees. However, there is no unanimity among the constituents of the AUAB to go ahead with the 3 day hunger strike. Hence, the 3 day hunger strike from 20th November, 2019 stands postponed. BSNLEU will decide about the future course of action and inform shortly.

Hindi translation of "The 3 day hunger strike from 20th November, 2019 stands postponed."

20 नवंबर 2019 से होने वाली 3 दिवसीय भूख हड़ताल स्थगित.

कल AUAB और डायरेक्टर (HR) के मध्य हुई चर्चा के परिणाम बिल्कुल भी संतोष जनक नही है। केवल एक आश्वासन भर दिया गया है कि वेतन का भुगतान 28 को होगा। फिर नवंबर के वेतन का क्या होगा ? कोई जवाब नही। सबसे महत्वपूर्ण , रिकवरी प्रेषित करने के मुद्दे पर कोई  प्रगति नही, जिसकी वजह से कर्मचारी बेहद व्यथित हैं। साथ ही, कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स के वेजेस बाबद भी कोई प्रगति नही। VRS ऑप्टीज से जुड़ी किसी भी समस्या में कोई प्रगति नही। रिटायरमेंट की उम्र घटा कर 58 वर्ष किए जाने के सम्बंध में क्या हुआ ? सुपरएन्युएशन बेनिफिट बाबद क्या आश्वासन दिया गया ? BSNL मैनेजमेंट  केवल अपनी चमड़ी बचा रहा है, किन्तु कर्मचारियों की समस्याओं को ले कर चिंतित नही है। बहरहाल, AUAB के घटकों में 3 दिवसीय भूख हड़ताल पर जाने के मामले में आम सहमति नही है। अतः, 20 नवंबर, 2019 से होने वाली 3 दिवसीय भूख हड़ताल स्थगित की जाती है। BSNLEU भविष्य की रणनीति पर  निर्णय ले कर शीघ्र सूचित करेगी।

Why are they not going on VRS ?

The top officers of BSNL Management are not able to pay salary to the employees on time. They are not able to pay wages to the contract workers for the past 10 months. They are not able to remit the recoveries on GPF contribution, bank loan EMI, society dues, etc., to the concerned organisations since May 2019. Till date they are not able get the Pension Rules amended, to ensure commutation of pension benefit to the VRS optees. They are unable to give guarantee that the VRS optees will get Pay Revision, if it is implemented retrospectively in BSNL. Thus, the top officers of BSNL are not able to do anything , except telling that everyone should go on VRS. But, why these top officers are not going on VRS? Yes, it is the top officers of BSNL, who should immediately opt for VRS.

19 - Nov - 2019
Hindi Translation of "Why are they not going on VRS ?"

*वें VRS पर क्यों नही जा रहे हैं ?*

BSNL मैनेजमेंट के उच्च अधिकारी कर्मचारियों को समय पर वेतन देने में सक्षम नही है। वें कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को भी विगत 10 माह से वेजेस  देने में सक्षम नही हैं। वें मई 2019 से GPF कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन, बैंक लोन, EMI, सोसाइटी बकाया आदि की वसूली गई राशि भी संबंधित संस्थाओं को प्रेषित करने में सक्षम नही है। आज दिनांक तक वें पेंशन रूल्स में संशोधन करने में भी सक्षम नही हो पाए हैं, जिससे कि VRS ऑप्टीज को पेंशन कम्युटेशन का लाभ मिल सके। वें VRS ऑप्टीज को यह गारंटी भी नही दे पा रहे हैं कि VRS ऑप्टीज को पे रिवीजन का लाभ मिलेगा, यदि BSNL में इसका पूर्व दिनांक से कार्यान्वयन हो जाता है। इस प्रकार, BSNL के उच्च अधिकारी कुछ भी करने में सक्षम नही है, सिवा, सभी को यह कहने के कि सभी को VRS पर जाना चाहिए। लेकिन ये उच्च अधिकारी स्वयं VRS पर क्यों नही जा रहे हैं ? जी हां, ये BSNL के उच्च अधिकारी ही हैं जिन्हें तत्काल VRS ऑप्ट करना चाहिए।

Good news for BSNL - Airtel and Vodafone Idea are to increase their tariffs.

IT is really a good news for BSNL that, telecom tariffs have started rising. It is known to all that BSNL's earnings nose-dived from Rs. 32,000 crore per year to Rs. 18,000 crore per year, only due to the brutal tariff war triggered by Reliance Jio. But, this trend has started changing now. Jio has already raised it's tariffs. It is charging 6 paise per minute for calls going to other networks. Jio has also increased it's minimum pre-paid plan tariff to Rs. 98 per month. Under these circumstances, Vodafone Idea and Airtel are also raising their tariffs. As per media report, both the companies are expected to raise their tariffs between 5% to 10%. Consequent to this, BSNL can also increase it's tariffs, which will help to improve it's financial position.
