No reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58 - let the Management and the DoT read the writing on the wall.

Only yesterday the AUAB came to know that the BSNL Board of Directors are moving in the direction of passing resolution, approving reduction of the retirement age of BSNL employees, from 60 to 58. Immediately the AUAB gave call for lunch hour demonstrations today. Even though, the call was given at a very short notice, the demonstrations were organised in a big way throughout the country. BSNL Executives and Non-Executives have spontaneously participated in the demonstrations in huge number. Today’s demonstrations are a warning signal to the BSNL Management and the DoT who want to kill BSNL by implementing Compulsory Retirement Scheme (CRS), through reducing the retirement age from 60 to 58. If the Management and the DoT do not read the writing on the wall, they will have to face militant struggles in the near future.

Reduction of retirement age from 60 to 58 - hold protest lunch hour demonstrations throughout the country tomorrow the 21.08.2019.

The AUAB has learnt reliably that the BSNL Board of Directors meeting is going to be held tomorrow the 21.08.2019, in which they are going to give approval for reducing the retirement age of BSNL employees from 60 to 58. We have been hearing for the past few months, about the proposal of the government to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58. This is totally against the commitment given by the Union Cabinet in the year 2000, that government rule will be applicable so far as the retirement of BSNL employees is concerned. In view of this, we have to strongly protest the move of the BSNL Board to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58. Hence, the AUAB calls upon the entire Executives and Non-Executives of BSNL to hold lunch hour demonstrations tomorrow to protest against the proposed move of the BSNL Board to reduce the retirement age from 60 to 58..

रिटायरमेंट की उम्र 60 से घटा कर 58 - कल दिनांक 21.08.2019 को भोजन अवकाश में देशव्यापी विरोध प्रदर्शन आयोजित करें-
विश्वस्त सूत्रों से AUAB को ज्ञात हुआ है कि कल दिनांक 21.08.2019 को बोर्ड ऑफ डायरेक्टर्स की मीटिंग होने जा रही है, जिसमें उनके द्वारा BSNL कर्मियों की रिटायरमेंट की उम्र 60 से घटा कर 58 करने का अनुमोदन किया जावेगा। हम विगत कुछ महीनों से सरकार द्वारा रिटायरमेंट की उम्र 60 से घटा कर 58 करने के प्रस्ताव के बारे में सुनते आ रहे हैं। यह पूर्ण रूप से, वर्ष 2000 में यूनियन कैबिनेट द्वारा BSNL कर्मियों की रिटायरमेंट आयु के संबंध में  सरकार के नियमों को लागू किए जाने के कमिटमेंट के विरुद्ध है। इस परिप्रेक्ष्य में हमें BSNL बोर्ड द्वारा रिटायरमेंट की उम्र 60 से घटा कर 58 करने की कोशिश का पुरजोर विरोध करना है। अतः AUAB ने BSNL के समस्त एग्जीक्यूटिव और नॉन एग्जीक्यूटिव से BSNL बोर्ड द्वारा रिटायरमेंट की उम्र 60 से घटा कर 58 करने के प्रस्ताव के विरोध में लंच अवर्स में देशव्यापी  प्रदर्शन आयोजित करने का आव्हान किया है।
