Tele-Crusader, September, 2019 article titled "Trade union rights curbed in BSNL - BSNLEU fights legal battle."

It is known to everyone that the present corporate management is devoting more energy, money and time to crush the trade union rights in BSNL, rather than managing other affairs of the Company. Ever since, the unions and associations of BSNL started to collectively struggle for the settlement of 3rd Pay Revision, the BSNL Management started taking every step to crush the struggles. In pursuit of this design, the BSNL Management has now banned even demonstrations and dharnas. The AUAB, in it's countrywide demonstrations held on 07.08.2019, has raised it’s voice against the autocratic steps being taken by the BSNL Management to curb trade union rights in BSNL. Ultimately, when the BSNL Management directed the participating unions not to organise even demonstrations and dharnas, till the completion of the 8th Membership Verification, BSNLEU was compelled to seek legal remedy. Based on BSNLEU’s write petition, the Hon’ble Madras High Court has stayed the BSNL Corporate Office’s letter dated 02nd July, 2019, which has banned even demonstrations and dharnas in BSNL. This article of Telecrusader, September, 2019, has dealt with these developments.

Organise demonstrations on 03-09-2019, demanding immediate payment of August salary..

Salary for the month of August is not paid. It is not known when will it be paid.  This is the 3rd time in this year that, the salary payment of the employees is delayed. The government/DoT and the BSNL Management are intentionally creating a hostile atmosphere for harassing the BSNL employees. We have every reason to believe that non-payment of salary to the BSNL employees on time, is a part of the conspiracy, to compel the employees to accept and to go on VRS. Hence, BSNLEU calls upon the employees to hold protest demonstrations throughout the country on 03-09-2019, demanding immediate payment of the August salary. Circle and District unions of BSNLEU are requested to organise the demonstration effectively.

अगस्त 2019 के वेतन के तुरंत भुगतान की मांग को ले कर 03-09-2019 को प्रदर्शन आयोजित करें...
अगस्त माह के वेतन का भुगतान नही हुआ है। यह भी ज्ञात नही है कि भुगतान कब होगा। इस वर्ष में यह तीसरी बार है, जब कर्मचारियों के वेतन भुगतान में विलंब हो रहा है। सरकार/DoT द्वारा जान बूझ कर कर्मचारियों को परेशान करने के लिए ऐसा तनावपूर्ण वातावरण निर्मित किया जा रहा है। हमारे पास यह मानने के लिए पर्याप्त कारण है कि वेतन भुगतान में विलंब, कर्मचारियों को VRS स्वीकारने के लिए बाध्य करने और फिर VRS लेने हेतु किए जा रहे षडयंत्र का हिस्सा है। इसीलिए, BSNLEU ने कर्मचारियों को अगस्त 2019 के वेतन के तुरंत भुगतान की मांग को ले कर 03-09-2019 को देश भर में प्रदर्शन आयोजित करने का आव्हान किया है। BSNLEU की परिमंडल और जिला यूनियन से अनुरोध है कि प्रभावी रूप से प्रदर्शन आयोजित करें।

Shri Nripendra Misra, Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, leaves the PMO - Revival plan of BSNL becomes a question mark ?

Shri Nripendra Misra, Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister, has resigned all of a sudden. As per media reports, Shri Nripendra Misra has resigned and that the Prime Minister has requested him to continue for two weeks. It may be recollected that the matters related to the revival of BSNL, were being dealt with at the highest level, by Shri Nripendra Misra. Now, since he has resigned, the decisions taken at his level, for the revival of BSNL have also become uncertain.  Soon after Shri Narendra Modi becoming Prime Minister in 2014, Shri Nripendra Misra became his Principal Secretary. Now, after Shri Narendra Modi becoming Prime Minister for the second time, the sudden resignation of Shri Nripendra Misra has raised many questions.  It is important to note that, Shri Nripendra Misra was former Secretary, Telecom, as well as the Chairman of the TRAI..
