The year 2019 is coming to a close. This year witnessed many struggles, movements and campaigns, by BSNL employees, for the revival of BSNL. Despite the invoking of ESMA, BSNL employees went on a glorious 3 day strike in February, 2019. BSNLEU heartily congratulates the employees for their participation in these struggles. 2019 also witnessed the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL, by the government, which is undoubtedly due to the impact of the struggles. Undoubtedly, this will go a long way in the financial revival of BSNL. At the same time, 2019 also witnessed the implementation of VRS and 50% of the employees opting for it. The year 2020 is going to be challenging for BSNL and it's employees. The united trade union movement has to change the challenges into stepping stones for the revival of BSNL and for a better future of the employees.
सभी सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट सेक्रेटरीज से CHQ का "कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स रिलीफ फण्ड" एकत्रित करने का अनुरोध....
आप को यह जानकारी है कि BSNL के कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को विगत 10 माह के वेजेस का भुगतान अभी तक नही किया गया है। BSNLEU और BSNLCCWF द्वारा, कॉर्पोरेट मैनेजमेंट पर कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स के वेजेस एरियर्स का भुगतान करने हेतु लगातार दबाव बनाया जा रहा है। किन्तु, यह अभी तक नही हो पाया है। ऐसी परिस्थितियों में, कोरोना वायरस के फैलाव को रोकने के लिए सरकार द्वारा 21 दिन का लॉक डाउन कर दिया गया है। इस लॉक डाउन की वजह से कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स की परेशानियों में और अधिक वृद्धि हुई है। ऐसे में, कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को मानवीय आधार पर तत्काल सहयोग करना बेहद जरूरी हो गया है। अतः, BSNLEU के CHQ द्वारा सर्किल सेक्रेटरीज और सेंट्रल ऑफिस बेयरर्स से चर्चा पश्चात, कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को मदद करने के लिए "कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स रिलीफ फण्ड" एकत्रित करने का निर्णय लिया गया है। सर्किल, डिस्ट्रिक्ट और ब्रांच सेक्रेटरीज से अनुरोध है कि वें तत्काल सक्रिय हो जाएं और हमारे मेंबर्स, शुभ चिंतकों, रिटायर्ड कर्मचारियों व अधिकारियों से सहयोग राशि (donations) एकत्रित करना शुरू करें। लॉक डाउन के चलते, सभी से सहयोग राशि हेतु फ़ोन पर सम्पर्क कर डोनेशन की सहमति लेवें। CHQ सभी सर्किल सेक्रेटरीज़ से, सहयोग राशि प्राप्त करने हेतु, सेंट्रल ऑफिस बेयरर्स, जिला सचिव व अन्य से समन्वय स्थापित कर पहल का अनुरोध करता है। CHQ सभी कॉमरेड्स से अनुरोध करता है कि वें युद्ध स्तर पर कार्य करते हुए फंड्स एकत्रित करने हेतु सक्रिय हो जाएं। इस संबंध में अन्य दिशा निर्देश CHQ द्वारा जारी किए जाएंगे।
The BSNL Casual Contract Workers Federation (BSNL CCWF) , in it's circular dated 18-05-2020, has called upon the contract and casual workers to participate in the Demonstration, called on by BSNLEU, which is to be organised on 21-05-2020. Hence, circle and district secretaries are requested to take steps to ensure their participation also.
The AUAB has given a call to submit memorandum to all the MPs in the country, highlighting the road-blocks being caused in rolling out BSNL’s 4G service and also highlighting the delay in implementing the assurances given in BSNL’s Revival Package.
Submitting memorandum to the MPs is an important part of mobilising the public opinion in favour of BSNL’s revival and survival. However, it is disappointing to note that, a very few circles only are carrying this task. Being the biggest trade union in BSNL, the circle and district secretaries of BSNLEU have more responsibility in organising the submission of memorandum to the MPs.
Hence, the CHQ calls upon all the circle and district secretaries of BSNLEU to swing into action and to complete the job of submitting memorandum to the MPs in their respective circle / district. In view of the lack of progress in submitting the memorandum, the AUAB is contemplating to extend the time limit. A decision in this connection may be announced tomorrow.
