Com.S.Sivakumar,GS,AIBSNLEA, retires on superannuation, but denied settlement of pension.

Com.S.Sivakumar,General Secretary of AIBSNLEA, retired on superannuation, after completing  38 years of exemplary and unblemished service. He retired as DGM- Finance in the BSNL Corporate Office. Com.S.Sivakumar has played a key role in strengthening the unity of the AUAB. BSNLEU wishes a very happy, healthy and peaceful retired life to Com.S.Sivakumar. 

 

At the same time, it is disturbing to note that, the BSNL Management has not settled Com.S.Sivakumar's pension. He has been given only provisional pension. This action has been taken by the Management, under the pretext that, a show cause notice has been issued to Com.Sivakumar nearly 3 years ago, for his participation in the three day strike, that has taken place in February, 2019. This vindictive action of the BSNL Management is unwarranted and is highly deplorable. BSNLEU demands that, the Management should take necessary remedial action immediately and should settle the pension of Com.S.Sivakumar, GS, BSNLEU. We are hopeful that the AUAB will take necessary action to vacate this victimisation imposed on Com.S.Sivakumar.

Hindi translation of "500 activists, writers, lawyers, etc., write to the Chief Justice of India – demand action on the Pegasus issue."

*500 कार्यकर्ता, लेखक, वकील आदि भारत के मुख्य न्यायाधीश को लिखते हैं - पेगासस मुद्दे पर कार्रवाई की मांग की हैं।

पेगासस स्पायवेयर का इस्तेमाल कर कई महत्वपूर्ण राजनेताओं, कार्यकर्ताओं आदि के फोन हैक कर जासूसी की गई है। ज्ञात सूत्रों का कहना है कि पेगासस स्पाइवेयर का इस्तेमाल करते हुए एक फोन को हैक करने का खर्च 1.5 करोड़ रुपये आता है। फिर यह सवाल स्वाभाविक रूप से उठता है कि बड़ी संख्या में व्यक्तियों के फोन पर जासूसी करने के लिए इतना बड़ा धन किसने खर्च किया है। विपक्ष ने सरकार पर पेगासस स्पाइवेयर का इस्तेमाल करके जासूसी करने  का आरोप लगाया है, सरकार इस मामले में चुप्पी साधे हुए है। सरकार ने न तो स्वीकार किया है और न ही इनकार किया है, कि उसने पेगासस स्पाइवेयर का इस्तेमाल जासूसी फोन के लिए किया था या नहीं। इन परिस्थितियों में 500 प्रख्यात कार्यकर्ताओं, लेखकों, वकीलों आदि ने भारत के मुख्य न्यायाधीश को पत्र लिखकर पेगासस मुद्दे पर कार्रवाई की मांग की है।

500 activists, writers, lawyers, etc., write to the Chief Justice of India – demand action on the Pegasus issue.

The phones of many important political leaders, activists, etc., have been hacked and spied using the Pegasus spyware. Known sources say that, the cost for hacking one phone, using the Pegasus spyware, comes to Rs.1.5 crore. Then, a question arises naturally, who has spent such a huge money to snoop on the phones of a large number of persons. The opposition has accused the government for the spying, using the Pegasus spyware. On the other hand, the government maintains a silence. It has neither admitted nor denied, that it used the Pegasus spyware to snoop phones. Under these circumstances, 500 eminent activists, writers, lawyers, etc., have written to the Chief Justice of India and have demanded action on the Pegasus issue.

चेन्नई सर्कल कौंसिल- चेन्नई सर्कल प्रशासन से कुछ सवाल।

BSNLEU CHQ-बीएसएनएलईयु सीएचक्यु वेबसाइट को अपडेट करने का और यह संदेश प्रसारित करने के पीछे हमारा इरादा किसी ऐसे व्यक्ति को कोई जवाब नहीं देना है, जो मानसिक रूप से बीमार है और जो अपने ही संगठन के नेताओं के चेहरों पर भी थूकने में और अन्य लोगों के मानसिक उत्पीड़न से  खुशी पाता है । हमारा इरादा केवल चेन्नई सर्कल की भूमिका के बारे में कुछ सवाल उठाने का है।

 

  1. नेशनल कौंसिल सहित देश भर में सभी सर्कल और लोकल कौंसिल में  केवल कर्मचारी पक्ष-Staff Side का सचिव ही कौंसिल मीटिंग में चर्चा के लिए एजेंडा आइटम प्रस्तुत कर सकते हैं । यह नियम है। क्या चेन्नई सर्कल में यह नियम अमान्य हो गया है ? 
  2. चेन्नई सर्कल में एनएनएफटीई-NFTE BSNL के सर्कल सेक्रेटरी अपने अहंकार की समस्या के कारण स्टाफ साइड सेक्रेटरी को आइटम प्रस्तुत करने देना नहीं चाहते हैं। क्या चेन्नई सर्कल प्रशासन यह कार्रवाई को मंजूरी देता है ? 
  3. एनएफटीई-बीएसएनएल - NFTE BSNL के  सर्किल सेक्रेटरी ने स्टाफ साइड सेक्रेटरी को कोई अजेंडा आइटम जमा नहीं किया था इसलिए बीएसएनएलईयु-BSNLEU ने अपनी ओर से अजेंडा आइटम सर्किल एडमिनिस्ट्रेशन को भेज दिया था । इसमें गलत क्या है ? 
  4. स्टाफ साइड सेक्रेटरी को अपना एजेंडा आइटम जमा किए बिना एनएफटीई बीएसएनएल-NFTE BSNL सर्कल सचिव के पास स्टाफ साइड मीटिंग आयोजित करने की मांग करने का क्या अधिकार है? चेन्नई सर्कल प्रशासन इस मांग को कैसे मान्य करता है? 
  5. स्टाफ साइड सेक्रेटरी द्वारा प्रस्तुत बीएसएनएलईयु - BSNLEU के एजेंडा आइटम को प्रशासन ने यह कहते हुए अस्वीकार कर दिया है कि उनके पास स्टाफ पक्ष की सर्वसम्मति नहीं थी । हम जानना चाहते हैं कि चेन्नई सर्किल प्रशासन ने किस नियम के तहत ऐसा कदम उठाया है ?

Hindi translation of "BSNLEU discussed the issues of the contract workers with the CMD BSNL."

BSNLEU ने सीएमडी बीएसएनएल के साथ ठेका कर्मियों के मुद्दों पर चर्चा की ।

साथी अनिमेष मित्रा, अध्यक्ष और साथी पी. अभिमन्यु, जनरल सेक्रेटरी ने दिनांक 28.07.2021 के दिन BSNL के सीएमडी श्री पीके पुरवार से मुलाकात की और ठेका कर्मियों की समस्याओं के बारे में चर्चा की। बीएसएनएल सीसीडब्ल्यूएफ (बीएसएनएल कैजुअल कांट्रेक्ट वर्कर्स फेडरेशन)-BSNLCCWF के महासचिव साथी अनिमेश मित्रा ने ठेका कर्मियों की समस्याओं को लेकर ज्ञापन सौंपा। अध्यक्ष साथी अनिमेष मित्रा और साथी पी. अभिमन्यु, जनरल सेक्रेटरी द्वारा व्यक्त किए गए विचार इस प्रकार हैं :

 

  1. क्लस्टर आधारित आउटसोर्सिंग प्रणाली विफल है, क्योंकि व्यय दोगुना हो गया है और आंकड़ों के अनुसार लैंडलाइन और ब्रॉडबैंड लाइन भारी संख्या में बंद हो रहे है ।
  2. जहां भी ठेका कर्मी उपलब्ध हो वहाँ प्रबंधन द्वारा ठेका कर्मियों को पुन:नियुक्त करने पर विचार करना चाहिए । 
  3. ठेका कर्मियों के वेतन का भुगतान 12 से 15 माह तक नहीं किया जाता है। वेतन बकाया राशि का तत्काल भुगतान करने के लिए कदम उठाए जाने चाहिए ।

 

सीएमडी, बीएसएनएल ने नेताओं के विचारों का जवाब देते हुए कहा कि विभिन्न मापदंडों से पता चलता है कि आउटसोर्सिंग के बाद लैंडलाइन और ब्रॉडबैंड सेवाओं की कार्यकुशलता में काफी सुधार हुआ है। 

 

उन्होंने आगे कहा कि आउटसोर्सिंग प्रणाली की कमियों को दूर करने के लिए कदम उठाए जाएंगे। नेताओं ने सीएमडी बीएसएनएल द्वारा दिए गए आंकड़ों को नोट कर बताया है कि उसका सत्यापन किया जाएगा और उसके बाद जवाब दिया जाएगा।

Chennai Circle Council - some questions to the Chennai Circle Administration.

Our intention of making this website updating is not to give any reply to a person, who is mentally sick and who finds sadistic pleasure in spitting even on the faces of the leaders of his own union. Our intention is only to raise certain questions about the role of the Chennai Circle Administration. 

 

(1)      In all the Circle and Local councils throughout the country, including in the National Council, it is only the Staff Side Secretary who can submit agenda items for discussion in the Council meetings. This is the Rule. Whether this Rule has become invalid in Chennai Circle? 

 

(2)      In Chennai Circle, the NFTE Circle Secretary, due to his ego problem, does not want to submit items to the Staff Side Secretary. Does the Chennai Circle Administration approves his action? 

 

(3)      Since the NFTE Circle Secretary did not submit any item to the Staff Side Secretary, the items of BSNLEU alone were sent to the Circle Administration. What is wrong in this?

 

(4)      Without submitting his agenda items to the Staff Side Secretary, what right does the NFTE Circle Secretary have, to demand the holding of the Staff Side meeting? How the Chennai Circle Administration validates this demand? 

 

(5)        The agenda items of BSNLEU, submitted by the Staff Side Secretary, have been rejected by the Administration, stating that they did not have the consensus of the Staff Side. We want to know, under which Rule the Chennai Circle Administration has taken such a step?

BSNLEU discussed the issues of the contract workers with the CMD BSNL.

Com.Animesh Mitra, President and Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, met shri P.K. Purwar, CMD BSNL, on 28.07.2021, and discussed about the problems of the contract workers. Com.Animesh Mitra, who is also the Secretary General of the BSNL CCWF (BSNL Casual Contract Workers Federation), submitted a memorandum on the problems of the contract workers. The views expressed by the President and the GS are also follows:-

 

  1. The cluster based outsourcing system is a failure, since the expenditure has doubled and the disconnection of landlines and broadband lines are taking place massively, as per the data.
  2. Hence, the Management should consider re-engagement of the contract workers, wherever they are available.
  3. Wages of the contract workers is not paid for 12 to 15 months. Steps should be taken for the immediate payment of the wage arrears.

 

The CMD BSNL responded to the views of the leaders by stating that, the various parameters show that the efficiency of landline and broadband services have greatly improved after the outsourcing. 

 

He further stated that, steps would be taken to improve the deficiencies in the outsourcing system. The leaders have noted down the figures given by the CMD BSNL and told that, the same would be verified and thereafter the response of the Union would be given.

Items submitted by the Secretary, Staff Side, Chennai Circle Council, not accepted by the Administration – GS, BSNLEU, writes to the Sr.GM(SR), requesting to intervene..

The Chennai Circle Administration has issued notification to hold the circle Council meeting on 30.07.2021. However, the Management has not accepted the items submitted by the Secretary, Staff Side, stating that there is no consensus among the Staff Side members, regarding submitting of items. The Administration has to accept the items submitted by the Secretary, Staff Side. Rejecting the items under the pretext that there is no consensus, is beyond the purview of the Administration. Besides, the Administration has stated that, the Circle Council meeting would discuss only the Management Side items. However, no ‘Management-Side item’ has been notified. In view of the above, the GS, BSNLEU, has written to the Sr.GM(SR), Corporate Office, requesting to issue suitable instruction to the Chennai Circle Administration.

Employees express their anger by successfully organising the hunger strike throughout the country.

The call given by the AUAB for observing day long hunger strike today, has become a grand success throughout the country. The struggle has been enthusiastically organised from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. This shows that, the employees are very much agitated over the inordinate delay in implementing the steps for the revival of BSNL. BSNLEU heartily congratulates the entire Executives and Non-Executives for making the hunger strike programme a total success. We are hopeful that the AUAB will soon announce further agitational programmes, to make the government to take appropriate steps for the early revival of BSNL. We have attached views of the hunger strike organised in certain circles. Remaining views will be updated tomorrow.

Conciliation by the Dy. CLC (Central) fails to bring any result.

The Dy.CLC (Central) organised a conciliation meeting yesterday, between the AUAB, the DoT and the BSNL Management, to discuss the charter of demands for the hunger strike programme. Com.Animesh Mitra, President, represented BSNLEU in this meeting. Major issues in the charter of demands, like 4G, payment of Rs.39,000 crore dues to BSNL, are connected with the DoT. However, no one from the DoT attended yesterday’s conciliation. So, the Dy. CLC's conciliation meeting ended without any improvement. Thereafter, a meeting was held between the CMD BSNL and the AUAB leaders. In that meeting also, no improvement came on any of the issues.

Formation of Committee to review the cluster-based outsourcing system should not be an eye-wash.

BSNLEU and the AUAB are continuously accusing that, the cluster-based outsourcing system is a total failure, as a result of which the quality of landline and broadband services has vastly deteriorated. BSNLEU has given in writing, with facts and figures, detailing how the cluster-based outsourcing has sharply increased the expenditure, while quality of service has steeply declined. Due to the hue and cry raised by BSNLEU and AUAB, now the Management has formed an internal committee, consisting of seven senior officers to review the cluster-based outsourcing system. BSNLEU desires that, the formation of this committee should not be an eye-wash, but should make a true self-introspection.
