Government to give more concessions to private parties, to ensure the privatisation of Air India.

The government’s attempt to privatise Air India, by selling 76% of it’s shares had failed. There was no one to buy Air India. So, now, the government is trying to some how sell out Air India, by giving more concessions to the buyers. In tune with this, the government is proposing to sell all the 100% shares, instead of the earlier proposal to sell only 76% shares. It is needless to say that the government may come forward to give more and more concessions to the private companies, to ensure Air India’s privatisation.

Downgradation of the Sr.ToAs from 7100 to 6550 pay scale - BSNLEU demands speedy action by the Corporate Office.

BSNLEU is persistently taking up the issue of downgradation of Sr.TOAs from 7100 pay scale to 6550 pay scale. The issue was prominently discussed with the CMD BSNL in the meeting held on 10.07.2018. The CMD BSNL agreed to settle it and thereafter a series of meetings took place between the Director (HR), Sr.GM(Estt.), etc. Prior to our Mysuru All India Conference, an understanding was reached between BSNLEU and the Sr.GM(Estt.), according to which it was agreed to give one more opportunity to the affected Sr.TOAs, for exercising a fresh option under NEPP. This opportunity will help them to rectify whatever wrong option they had given earlier, as a result of which their pay scale was downgraded from 7100 to 6550. However, the Establishment Branch is unnecessarily delaying the issuing of this letter. Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS and Com.Swapan Chakraborty, Dy.GS, met Shri Saurabh Tyagi, Sr.GM(Estt.) yesterday, and expressed their unhappiness over the unwarranted delay. Surprisingly, in yesterday’s meeting, the Sr.GM(Estt.) told that they are now looking into the implications in giving such a fresh option, with regards to the retired employees. The Union representatives insisted that the Corporate Office should take a speedy decision in this regard and that the letter should be issued immediately, as was agreed upon.

The representatives demanded early allotment of funds to clear the wage arrears of contract workers.

In reply the Director (Finance) replied that the financial condition of BSNL is extremely serious, and that needful action would be taken, subject to the availability of funds. He also told that the financial condition of the company has forced the Management to take the unpleasant decision to cut down the strength of contract workers, since they are left with no other option. Still, the representatives urged upon the Director (Finance) to review the decision.

Pathak, AGS, AIGETOA, Com.Suresh Kumar, GS, BSNL MS, Com.Rewati Prasad, BSNL ATM and com.Kabeer Das, GS, BSNL OA, participated in the meeting. The following issues were discussed.


(1)    Imposition of break-in-service under FR 17 A.

The AUAB has already written to the CMD BSNL, stating that break-in-service under FR 17 A, cannot be imposed on BSNL employees, since it is not part of the CDA rules. In today’s meeting, the representatives of AUAB insisted for expeditious action by the Management, on this issue. The CMD BSNL and the Director (HR) assured to do the needful.


(2)    Wrong calculation in the wage cut.

The representatives of the AUAB pointed out that the wage cut, for participation in the 3 day strike, has been done based on wrong calculation. That is, the three day wages has been arrived, by taking 28 days as a month’s salary. Instead, a month’s salary should be calculated as 30 days. As a result, more money has been deducted from the salary of the employees. Further, three days wage cut should be calculated on basic pay and DA only. But in many places, this calculation has been done wrongly. The CMD BSNL and Director (HR) assured to do the needful on this.


(3)    March to Sanchar Bhawan – provoking instruction given by the BSNL Corporate Office.

The SR Branch of the BSNL CO., has sent an instruction to the CGMs, directing that the principle of ‘no work no pay’ should be implemented on those employees who take part in the March to Sanchar Bhawan. It was pointed out by the AUAB representatives that, as per rules, the principle of ‘no work no pay’ cannot be imposed on employees for their participation in the rallies. Responding to this, the Director (HR) said that, she was not aware of any such instruction having been issued by the Corporate Office, and assured to look into it.

 

The CMD BSNL informed the representatives of the AUAB that, the March salary will be paid to the employees on time and he also told that this payment of salary is being made purely from BSNL’s own earnings.

कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स की छंटनी नही करें- वेज एरियर्स के भुगतान के लिए फण्ड जारी करें- BSNLEU का डायरेक्टर (फाइनेंस) से अनुरोध...

कॉम पी अभिमन्यु, GS और कॉम स्वपन चक्रबोर्ति, Dy. GS, ने आज श्री एस के गुप्ता, डायरेक्टर (फाइनेंस) से मुलाकात कर निम्न मुद्दों पर चर्चा की...
 
(1) कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस का वह पत्र जिसमें सर्कल्स को कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स की संख्या कम करने हेतु निर्देशित किया गया है। 
(2) महीनों से कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को वेजेस का भुगतान नही होना। 

प्रतिनिधियों ने कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स के वेजेस एरियर्स के भुगतान हेतु यथाशीघ्र फण्ड आवंटन की मांग की। उन्होंने यह भी कहा कि कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स की छंटनी से मेंटेनेंस कार्य बुरी तरह से प्रभावित होगा। इसके प्रत्युत्तर में डायरेक्टर (फाइनेंस) ने कहा कि BSNL की वित्तीय स्थिति बेहद क्षीण है और फंड्स की उपलब्धता अनुसार आवश्यक कार्यवाही की जाएगी। उन्होंने यह भी कहा कि कंपनी की वित्तीय हालात की वजह से ही उन्हें कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स की संख्या में कटौती करने का अप्रिय निर्णय लेने के लिए बाध्य होना पड़ा है, क्योंकि इसके अलावा और कोई पर्याय नही था। फिर भी, प्रतिनिधियों ने डायरेक्टर (फाइनेंस) से इस निर्णय पर पुनर्विचार करने का अनुरोध किया।
