BSNLEU strongly condemns the decision of the Management to reduce the number of days from 25 to 23, for calculating the ceiling for reimbursement of outdoor treatment.

When 78.2% IDA merger was settled in 2013, Management issued order, stating that allowances would be continued to be paid on basis of 68.8% IDA merger only. However, unions and associations have time and again demanded that all the allowances should be paid on the basis of 78.2% IDA merger. Yesterday, the Management has issued letter, stating that 78.2% IDA merger should be taken into account, for calculating the ceiling for reimbursement of outdoor treatment bills. However, while doing so, the Management has arbitrarily reduced the number of days, from 25 to 23, for calculating the ceiling. Recognised trade union was not consulted in this respect. BSNLEU condemns this arbitrary decision.

Organise demonstrations on 03-09-2019, demanding immediate payment of August salary..

Salary for the month of August is not paid. It is not known when will it be paid.  This is the 3rd time in this year that, the salary payment of the employees is delayed. The government/DoT and the BSNL Management are intentionally creating a hostile atmosphere for harassing the BSNL employees. We have every reason to believe that non-payment of salary to the BSNL employees on time, is a part of the conspiracy, to compel the employees to accept and to go on VRS. Hence, BSNLEU calls upon the employees to hold protest demonstrations throughout the country on 03-09-2019, demanding immediate payment of the August salary. Circle and District unions of BSNLEU are requested to organise the demonstration effectively.
