BSNLEU writes to the Chairman of the Wage Negotiating Committee, demanding to settle Wage Revision with 5% fitment..

With the view to settle the burning issue of stagnation, the AUAB had suggested to the Management, to settle the wage revision with 0% fitment. However, as per the data provided by the Management Side in the Wage Negotiating Committee meeting held on 03-12-2021, only 1/ 3 of the Non-Executives are presently affected with stagnation. Others have already retired under VRS. Under these circumstances, this issue was discussed threadbare in the CEC meeting of BSNLEU, held online on 22-12-2021.  The meeting has unanimously decided to demand the management to settle wage revision with at least 5% fitment. Today, BSNLEU has written to the chairman of the joint wage negotiating committee, demanding to consider settlement of wage revision with 5% fitment. Further, in view of the 3rd wave of the COVID-19, BSNLEU has also demanded to hold the next wage negotiating committee meeting online, at the earliest.

ठहराव-stagnation के ज्वलंत मुद्दे को निपटाने के उद्देश्य से एयूएबी ने प्रबंधन को 0% फिटमेंट के साथ वेतन संशोधन का निपटारा करने का सुझाव दिया था । दिनांक 03-12-2021 को हुई वेतन वार्ता समिति की बैठक में प्रबंधन पक्ष द्वारा उपलब्ध कराए गए आंकड़ों के अनुसार वर्तमान में केवल 1/3 नॉन एक्ज़िक्यूटिव्स ही ठहराव से प्रभावित होते हैं । अन्य पहले ही वीआरएस के तहत रिटायर हो चुके हैं । इन परिस्थितियों में दिनांक 22-12-2021 को हुई बीएसएनएलईयू की ऑनलाईन सीईसी की बैठक में इस मुद्दे पर विस्तृत चर्चा की गई। बैठक में सर्वसम्मति से प्रबंधन से कम से कम 5 प्रतिशत फिटमेंट के साथ वेतन पुनरीक्षण का निपटारा करने की मांग करने का निर्णय लिया गया है। आज बीएसएनएलईयू ने संयुक्त वेतन वार्ता समिति के अध्यक्ष को पत्र लिखकर 5% फिटमेंट के साथ वेतन संशोधन के निपटारे पर विचार करने की मांग की है । इसके अलावा कोविड 19 की तीसरी लहर को देखते हुए बीएसएनएलईयू ने अगली वेतन वार्ता समिति की बैठक भी जल्द से जल्द ऑनलाइन कराने की मांग की है।

BSNL lost it’s first position in the FTTH segment..

For long, BSNL’s FTTH service (Fibre based broadband) remained as the favourite of the customers. Even though, BSNL was not performing well in the mobile segment, it was holding number one position in the FTTH segment. But, it is a bad news that, Jio has now overtaken BSNL. According to the media report, BSNL lost 0.5 million FTTH customers in November, 2021. At the same time, Jio has added 0.19 million Jio fibre customers. Airtel has also added 0.1 million broadband customers in November, 2021. As a result, Jio has gained first position with 17.8% market share in November, 2021. BSNL’s market share is 17.2% and Airtel comes third with 16.7% market share.

बीएसएनएल ने एफटीटीएच सेगमेंट-FTTH segment में पहला स्थान खो दिया है। 

लंबे अरसे तक बीएसएनएल की एफटीटीएच सेवा (फाइबर आधारित ब्रॉडबैंड) ग्राहकों की पहली पसंद के रूप में बनी रही। भले ही बीएसएनएल मोबाइल सेगमेंट में अच्छा प्रदर्शन नहीं कर रहा था लेकिन वह एफटीटीएच सेगमेंट में नंबर वन पोजिशन पर था । लेकिन यह एक बुरी खबर है कि जियो अब बीएसएनएल से आगे निकल गया है । मीडिया रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक बीएसएनएल ने नवंबर, 2021 में 05 लाख एफटीटीएच ग्राहकों को खो दिया। इसके साथ ही जियो ने 0.19 मिलियन जियो फाइबर कस्टमर्स को जोड़ा है। एयरटेल ने नवंबर 2021 में 01 लाख ब्रॉडबैंड ग्राहकों को भी जोड़ा है। नतीजतन, जियो ने नवंबर, 2021 में 17.8% मार्केट शेयर के साथ पहला स्थान प्राप्त किया है। *बीएसएनएल का मार्केट शेयर 17.2%* और एयरटेल 16.7% मार्केट शेयर के साथ तीसरे नंबर पर आता है।

Red salutes to the martyrs of the first General Strike - strengthen worker-peasant unity.

40 years ago it was on this day, i.e., on 19th January,1982, the first country - wide General Strike was organised by the Indian working class. The strike was organised by the Sponsoring Committee of the Central Trade Unions” and “National Federations”. It was supported by the opposition parties like Janata Party, BJP, CPI(M), CPI, Lokdal, Forward Block, RSP and the DSP. The charter of demands of the strike included, food and other essential commodities at reasonable prices to the people, remunerative prices for the peasants and minimum wages for the agricultural workers. This General Strike  was joined by the workers, peasants and agricultural workers. Ten comrades were killed in this strike by police brutalities, in different parts of the country. Among them, many were poor agricultural workers. In Tamil Nadu alone, 3 agricultural workers were killed in police firing. Despite severe repressions,  the strike was a resounding success and it gave birth to the slogan of “ Worker-Peasant Unity”. Today, when the Modi government is bulldozing the country with it’s  pro-corporate policies and is launching all out attacks on the working people, the spirit of “Worker-Peasant Unity” has to be strengthened. This is the lesson that we have to learn from the first General Strike, that shook the nation 40 years ago. Red salutes to the martyrs.

बीएसएनएलईयू-BSNLEU लगातार प्रबंधन-management पर दबाव डाल रहा है कि बीएसएनएल ट्रांसफर पॉलिसी-BSNL Transfer Policy के पैरा -para 8 के अनुसार डीआर जेई-DR JEs के अनुरोध तबादलों-request transfer पर विचार किया जाए। बीएसएनएलईयू-BSNLEU ने 56 डीआर जेई-DR JEs की सूची सौंपी है, जो पहले ही 5 साल की सेवा पूरी कर चुके है और उन्होंने नियम-Rule 8 ट्रांसफर-transfer के लिए आवेदन-apply किया था, लेकिन विचार नहीं किया गया । इस मामले पर साथी पी.अभिमन्यु, महासचिव-Com.

Implementation of Group Health Insurance Scheme..

As all are aware, BSNLEU had taken efforts continuously, for implementing a Group Health Insurance Scheme for the employees. Based on this, an MoU was signed between BSNL and the New India Assurance Company. However, this MoU was not approved by the Corporate Office of New India Assurance Company. Thereafter, based on the request of the Union, the Corporate Office once again called for the quotations afresh from various insurance companies. Three companies, viz., the United India Insurance Company Ltd., The New India Assurance Company Ltd., and the Oriental Insurance Company Ltd., submitted their quotations. In this, the quotations of the Oriental Insurance Company Ltd. are the lowest, which are as follows (for Rs.5 lakh policy)

 

(1)   Option 1 - Without parents – Rs.16,041/-

(2)   Option 2 - With 1 parent  - Rs.25,814/-

(3)   Option 3 - With 2 parents  - Rs.35,804/-

 

Since, the amounts quoted are very high, the BSNL Corporate Office tried to negotiate with the Oriental Insurance Company Ltd. for reducing the premium amount. Today, Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, discussed this issue with Shri S.P. Singh, GM(Admn.), who replied that the Oriental Insurance Company is not prepared to reduce the premium amount any more. There is a deadlock on this matter. Now, we have to advise the Corporate Office either to proceed and sign the MoU based on the quoted amount or to drop the proposal of implementing Group Health Insurance Scheme for the employees. CHQ requests the circle secretaries and central office bearers to immediately convey their views to the CHQ, so that, BSNLEU can give it’s suggestion to the Corporate Office.

सामूहिक स्वास्थ्य बीमा योजना का कार्यान्वयन-Implementation of Group Health Insurance Scheme.  

जैसा कि सभी जानते हैं बीएसएनएलईयू-BSNLEU ने कर्मचारियों-employees के लिए एक सामूहिक स्वास्थ्य बीमा योजना-Group Health Insurance Scheme को लागू करने के लिए लगातार प्रयास कर रहा है । इसके आधार पर बीएसएनएल-BSNL और न्यू इंडिया एश्योरेंस कंपनी-New India Assurance Company के बीच एमओयू-MoU साइन किया गया। हालांकि, इस एमओयू-MoU को न्यू इंडिया एश्योरेंस कंपनी-New India Assurance Company के कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस -Corporate Office ने मंजूरी नहीं दी थी। इसके बाद यूनियन-Union के अनुरोध के आधार पर निगम कार्यालय-Corporate Office ने एक बार फिर विभिन्न बीमा कंपनियों-insurance companies से नए सिरे से कोटेशन-quotations की मांग की। यूनाइटेड इंडिया इंश्योरेंस कंपनी लिमिटेड-United India Insurance Company Limited, न्यू इंडिया एश्योरेंस कंपनी लिमिटेड-New India Assurance Company Limited और ओरिएंटल इंश्योरेंस कंपनी लिमिटेड-Oriental Insurance Company Limited जैसी तीन कंपनियों-companies ने अपने कोटेशन-quotations जमा किए । इसमें ओरिएंटल इंश्योरेंस कंपनी लिमिटेड-Oriental Insurance Company Limited के कोटेशन-quotations सबसे कम हैं, जो इस प्रकार हैं (5 लाख रुपये की पॉलिसी के लिए-for Rs. 5 lakh पॉलिसी). 

 

(1) विकल्प-Option :  1- माता-पिता के बिना (without parents) - 16,041 रुपये

(2) विकल्प-Option : 2 - माता या पिता के साथ (with one parent ) Rs.25,814/-

(3) विकल्प-Option :  3 - दोनो माता-पिता के साथ (with 2 parents) - 35,804 रुपये

 

चूंकि दर्शित राशि-quoted amounts बहुत अधिक है, बीएसएनएल कॉर्पोरेट कार्यालय-BSNL Corporate Office ने प्रीमियम राशि-premium amount को कम करने के लिए ओरिएंटल इंश्योरेंस कंपनी लिमिटेड-Oriental Insurance Company Limited के साथ बातचीत की। आज साथी पी.अभिमन्यु, महासचिव-Com. P. Abhimanyu, General Secretary ने इस मुद्दे पर जनरल मेनेजर, (एडमिन) श्री एसपी सिंह-Shri SP Sinh, General Manager (Admin) के साथ चर्चा की, जिन्होंने बताया कि ओरिएंटल इंश्योरेंस कंपनी-Oriental Insurance Company प्रीमियम राशि-premium amount को कम करने के लिए तैयार नहीं है। इस मामले पर गतिरोध-deadlock बना हुआ है। अब, हमें कारपोरेट कार्यालय-Corporate Office को सलाह देनी होगी कि वे या तो उद्धृत राशि के आधार पर समझौता ज्ञापन-MoU पर आगे बढ़ें और हस्ताक्षर करें या कर्मचारियों के लिए समूह स्वास्थ्य बीमा योजना-Group Health Insurance Scheme को लागू करने के प्रस्ताव-proposal को छोड़ दें । सीएचक्यू-CHQ सर्कल सचिवों-Circle Secretaries और केंद्रीय पदाधिकारियों-central office bearers से अनुरोध करता है कि वे तुरंत अपने विचार सीएचक्यू-CHQ तक पहुंचाएं, ताकि बीएसएनएलईयू-BSNLEU इसे कॉर्पोरेट कार्यालय-Corporate Office को सुझाव-suggestions दे सके ।

Sanction medical advance for the hospitalisation of Covid patients/dependants- BSNLEU writes to the CMD BSNL.

On 11.01.2022, Corporate Office has issued certain guidelines for the treatment of employees affected with COVID-19. But, nothing is mentioned regarding the sanctioning of medical advance to the employees / dependents who are affected with the COVID-19. BSNL Empanelled hospitals are not offering cashless treatment, due to the non-payment of bills by BSNL Management. Last year, the Director (HR) issued letter for the sanctioning of medical advance to the hospitalised employees at the rate of Rs.1 lakh / Rs.2 lakh / Rs.3 lakh. Hence, BSNLEU has written to the CMD BSNL today to issue instructions to the CGMs for the sanctioning of similar medical advance to the COVID-19 affected employees / dependents.
