The unions and associations of BSNL are immensely contributing for the improvement of the quality of services as well as to increase the revenue of the Company. The unions and associations are relentlessly motivating the employees to intensify the marketing activities. However, the BSNL Management in turn, is continuously taking actions to curb the legitimate trade union rights of the unions and associations. Even peaceful protests like dharna and hunger strikes are not being allowed in BSNL. These actions of the Management are in total violation of the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court which has stated that every citizen has the right to participate in peaceful protest actions. The CEC meeting of BSNLEU held at Vadodara has passed resolution demanding the BSNL Management not to deny the trade union rights.
