Management plays dirty game - BSNLEU boycotts the National Council meeting..

All the 8 Staff Side members of BSNLEU have boycotted today’s National Council meeting, protesting against the “dirty game” being played by the BSNL Management in the matter of nominating Staff Side members. From the beginning of the formation of the National Council, non-members were permitted to be nominated to the Staff Side, by the Recognised Union. However, in between, the Management took a stand that the Recognised Unions can nominate only their paid members to the Staff Side of the National Council.

 

When BSNLEU nominated Com.Suresh Kumar, GS, BSNL MS, to the National Council, the Management rejected that nomination, stating that Com.Suresh Kumar was not a paid member of BSNLEU. However, a few days back, NFTE nominated a non-member to the National Council and this has been accepted by the Management. Com.P.Abhimanyu, General Secretary, spoke to the Sr.GM(SR) and demanded that, BSNLEU should also be allowed to nominate  non-members to the National Council. However, it was not accepted. The Management is telling blatant lies to justify it’s stand. As a result of this, BSNLEU has boycotted today’s National Council meeting.

 

BSNLEU wishes to make it’s stand very clear. BSNLEU does not oppose the nomination of any individual to the National Council. BSNLEU only demands that, it should also be permitted to nominate non-members to the National Council. 

 

मैनेजमेंट का गंदा खेल - BSNLEU ने नेशनल कौंसिल मीटिंग का बहिष्कार किया..

BSNLEU के सभी 8 स्टाफ साइड मेंबर्स ने, स्टाफ साइड मेंबर्स के नामांकन के संबंध में मैनेजमेंट द्वारा खेले जा रहे "गंदे खेल" का विरोध करते हुए, आज की नेशनल कौंसिल मीटिंग का बहिष्कार किया। नेशनल कौंसिल के गठन के समय से ही मान्यता प्राप्त यूनियन को, नॉन मेंबर्स को स्टाफ साइड हेतु नॉमिनेट करने की अनुमति प्राप्त थी। किन्तु, इसी बीच, मैनेजमेंट ने तय किया कि, मान्यता प्राप्त यूनियन, नेशनल कौंसिल में स्टाफ साइड के लिए केवल अपने पेड मेंबर्स को ही नॉमिनेट कर सकती है।

जब BSNLEU ने कॉम सुरेश कुमार ,GS, BSNL MS, को नेशनल कौंसिल हेतु नॉमिनेट किया, तब मैनेजमेंट ने उनके नामांकन को यह कहते हुए निरस्त कर दिया कि कॉम सुरेश कुमार BSNLEU के पेड मेंबर नही है। बहरहाल, अभी कुछ दिनों पूर्व, NFTE ने नेशनल कौंसिल हेतु नॉन मेंबर को नॉमिनेट किया और मैनेजमेंट द्वारा इसे स्वीकार कर लिया गया है। कॉम पी अभिमन्यु, महासचिव ने Sr.GM(SR) से बात कर मांग की, कि  BSNLEU को भी नेशनल कौंसिल में नॉन मेंबर को नॉमिनेट करने की अनुमति दी जाए। किन्तु, इसे मान्य नही किया गया। मैनेजमेंट द्वारा अपने दृष्टिकोण (stand) के औचित्य को साबित करने के लिए सफेद झूठ बोला जा रहा है। परिणामस्वरूप, BSNLEU ने आज की नेशनल कौंसिल मीटिंग का बहिष्कार कर दिया है। 

BSNLEU अपना स्पष्ट मत प्रस्तुत करना चाहेगी। BSNLEU, नेशनल कौंसिल में किसी भी व्यक्ति के नॉमिनेशन के विरोध में नही है।  BSNLEU केवल यह मांग करती है कि उसे भी नेशनल कौंसिल में नॉन मेंबर को नॉमिनेट करने की अनुमति दी जानी चाहिए।

Defence employees to go on indefinite strike from 12th October, 2020.

The Defence employees, working in the Ordnance Factories, are going on an indefinite strike from 12th October, 2020, opposing the decision of the Modi government to corporatise the Ordnance Factories.

The Defence employees had already organised a heroic 5 day strike in August, 2019. Some time back, the Defence trade unions had conducted a strike ballot. The workers had overwhelmingly voted in favour of strike. The National Convention of Workers, held online yesterday, has called upon the working class to organise solidarity actions in support of the strike of the Defence employees.

The statement of this Kizan leader very much applies to the business tactics being adopted by Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio.

BSNLEU joins the nation in paying it's respectful homage to the Father of the Nation, on his 151st birth anniversary.

He firmly believed that, India belongs to the people of all the religions, viz., Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Parsis, etc.,etc. It is exactly for this reason that, Mahatma Gandhi was murdered by religious fanatics. On this day, BSNLEU takes the oath that, it will stand up to defend the unity of the people, and the secular character of the Constitution.

DR. P.D. Vaghela, is the new chairman, TRAI.

Dr. P.D. Vaghela, IAS, Secretary, Department of Pharmaceuticals is appointed as the Chairman of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). He will be succeeding the incumbent, R.S. Sharma. It must be noted that it is under the chairmanship of R.S. Sharma, that the Indian Telecom Industry had gone into a huge crisis. All the telecom companies, except Reliance Jio, had gone into loss making. The total debt burden of the telecom industry is Rs.8 lakh crore. The biased steps taken by R.S. Sharma, like allowing predatory pricing, cutting down the IUC (Interconnection Usage Charge)etc., benefited Reliance Jio in a big way, while all other companies, including BSNL went to the dogs.

India’s figures of death due to Corona Virus are not reliable - says Donald Trump.

Prime Minister, Narendra Modi considers the US President, Donald Trump, as his special friend. India has become a junior partner to the US, and implements whatever directive given by the world’s super power. It may be remembered that Prime Minister, Narendra Modi accorded a massive reception to Donald Trump, at Ahmedabad, in February this year. In that programme, both Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and US President, Donald Trump, hugged each other many times, to demonstrate their closeness to the world. However, yesterday, Donald Trump has stated that India's figures of death, due to Corona Virus Disease, are not reliable.  We do not know what is the response of the Indian Prime Minister, to this remark made by the US President.
