AUAB discusses the issues of contract workers in the meeting held with the Director (HR).

The AUAB is seriously taking up the issues of non-payment of wages to the contract workers for the past 8 months, as well as their large scale retrenchment. This is because due to the above mentioned problems, the maintenance of BSNL’s services at the field level are severely affected and thereby the Company’s revenue collections are also impacted. In yesterday’s meeting with the Director (HR) and the Director (CM), this issue was discussed seriously. It was demanded that the wage arrears of the contract workers should be paid without further delay and also the retrenchment of contract workers should be stopped. The Director (HR) told that despite severe financial crisis, the Corporate Office has released funds in October, 2019, as per the following details.

 

Kerala – Rs.6.75 crore, West Bengal – Rs.6.5 crore, Kolkata – Rs.14.5 crore and ETR – Rs.1 crore.

 

The representatives demanded that the Management should take steps to clear the wage arrears of all the circles. They also pleaded that the letters issued to retrench the contract workers should be reviewed.

Struggle between communal forces and progressive forces.

“The Hindu” news paper has published the above cartoon on the New Year Day. The cartoon vividly portrays the present day India. The communal forces try to divide the country on the basis of religion and take it back to the Dark Age. At the same time, the progressive Forces try to stop this and take the country forward to the future. Communal forces weaken the unity of the people, most importantly, the unity of the working people. BSNLEU, being an organisation of the working class, will remain with the progressive forces and will oppose the communal forces from dividing the people.

Supreme Court upholds SC/ST reservation in promotions.

The Supreme Court has ordered yesterday that, reservation in promotion to SC/ST employees would be “in accordance with law”. The back ground of this judgement is as follows:-

 

Reservation in promotions are allowed since 1955. However, in 1992, the Supreme Court held that, such promotions are unconstitutional. In 1995, the law was amended to allow quota in promotions. Again this was challenged in the Supreme Court in 2006. However, this time, the Supreme Court held that, framing any law on the matter should satisfy the test of (1) backwardness (2) inadequate representation and (3) overall efficiency. Based on this, many high courts gave judgements, denying reservation in promotions. To face this situation, the UPA government introduced a bill in the Parliament, stating that, all SCs and STs shall be deemed backward. This bill is yet to be passed by the Parliament. It is under these circumstances that yesterday, the Supreme Court allowed reservation in promotions, till it decides legality of the law.

Why BSNL went into loss - Misrepresentation of fact in the Parliament.

Time and again, it was reiterated by the erstwhile Hon'ble Communications Minister, shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, that BSNL was not allowed by the government to expand it's networks for ten years. This statement was made by shri Prasad, in view of the fact that, all the tenders floated by BSNL, between 2006 to 2012, were cancelled by the then government. This is the real reason behind BSNL's going into loss. However, the present Hon'ble Minister for Communications, shri Manoj Sinha, has given a totally misleading reply in this regard, on the floor of the Parliament. Replying to a question raised in the Lok Sabha on 02-08-2017, shri Manoj Sinha has stated that the inability of BSNL and MTNL to make timely investment for upgradation of their networks, as one the important reasons for their going into loss. This is nothing but, a misrepresentation of fact.

Novel method of observing the Satyagraha programme, by the Comrades of Valsad SSA.

Valsad comrades (Gujarat circle) started the Satyagraha programme in a novel way. Before starting the Satyagraha, the comrades of All Unions and Associations of BSNL, went in a two wheeler procession to Dandi. All of us know that Mahatma Gandhi started his world famous "Salt Satyagraha" at Dandi, as a symbol of disobedience and challenging the authority of the brutal British imperialism. At Dandi, the Valsad SSA Comrades paid homage to the Mahatma, by garlanding his statue. Thereafter, the Satyagraha programme is started. CHQ heartily congratulates Com. M.K.Dave,AGS, BSNLEU, as well as all the Valsad Comrades, for implementing the Satyagraha programme in a lively manner.
