Implement the call of the AUAB - organise press meets, dharnas and rallies massively.

As has already been announced, the AUAB has given call for agitational programme, demanding implementation of the assurances given by the Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications, in the meeting held with the AUAB on 24.02.2018. Accordingly, the following agitational programme should be organised effectively.

 

Press meets.

Press meetings have to be organised on 29.10.2018 at districts and circle levels. Non-implementation of the assurances given by the Hon’ble MoS(C) should be highlighted to the media persons. Especially, issues related to the financial revival of BSNL, the pro-private and anti-BSNL policies of the government should also be explained. Since, we get very good response from the media persons at the district and circle levels, which results in effective focus of our issues in the media, this opportunity should be effectively utilised.

 

Dharna on 30.10.2018.

As per the call of the AUAB, dharnas should be organised at the district and circle levels very effectively on 30.10.2018. Especially, at a juncture when the AUAB is going to organise strike action on the demands, much seriousness should be shown by our circle and district unions, in involving the Executives and Non-Executives massively in this dharna programme.

 

Rallies on 14.11.2018.

The AUAB has decided that massive rallies should be organised at SSA and circle levels on 14.11.2018. Since organising rallies is a very good opportunity to focus our issues to the public, the same should be done very effectively. Displaying of play cards, banners, etc., conveying our demands, should be done effectively.

 

Circle and Districts secretaries of BSNLEU are requested to take the lead for organising the above mentioned programme of action, by suitably coordinating with the other constituents of the AUAB.

Disciplinary action taken by the All India Centre, to ensure democratic functioning in Chennai Telephones Circle.

Some serious organisational problems are going on in Chennai Telephones Circle, for quite some time. Instances of indiscipline and unruly behaviours in the circle executive committee meetings were brought to the notice of the CHQ. With the view to improve the situation, the General Secretary himself attended four to five Circle Executive Committee meetings of Chennai circle, together with Com.S.Chellappa, AGS. However, the situation did not improve. Once again, CHQ received reports of unruly and indisciplined beahaviour by some comrades, in the last two circle executive committee meetings. The matter was discussed several times in the All India Centre meetings. Ultimately, in accordance with article 10(b)(ii) of the Union Constitution, the All India Centre has removed one of the Circle Organising Secretaries from that post and has also debarred him from becoming office bearer at any level, for a period of one year. This action has become unavoidable to ensure democratic functioning of our Union in Chennai Telephones Circle.

Slanderous poster, maligning General Secretary's Istanbul trip.

Com.P.Abhimanyu, being the General Secretary of the biggest trade union in BSNL, is playing a leading role, in organising continuous struggles, to safeguard BSNL and the employees. Ever since becoming the General Secretary of BSNLEU in 2010, Com.P.Abhimanyu, has played a leading role in organising many strikes. He has played a prominent role in organising the 3 day strike also, demanding settlement of 3rd Pay Revision and revival of BSNL. On 1st and 2nd March, 2019, Com.P.Abhimanyu attended the 14th Congress of the WFTU- TUI (Transport and Communications) at Istanbul.  He has made an inspiring speech in this 14th Congress, about the telecommunications sector in India and globally.  It is also a matter of pride for all of us that, the WFTU-TUI, (Transport and Communications) has elected Com.P.Abhimanyu as the Convenor of the Trade Unions of Communications Sector.


However, some cowards are spreading a poster through Whatsapp, maligning Com.P. Abhimanyu’s Istanbul trip, stating that, the General Secretary of BSNLEU is going on foreign tour, when the employees are not being paid salary. The cowards who spread this poster, are only trying to divert the attention of the employees from the real problem. BSNL is unable to pay salary to the employees, and the government is solely responsible for creating such a miserable situation for BSNL. But, the cowards link non-payment of salary to Com.P.Abbhimanyu’s Istanbul trip. This attempt is mischievous and condemnable.  It is reliably learnt that a member of NFTE from Jabalpur is behind this mischief. This miscreant is continuously making postings on his face book, and sending WhatsApp messages, maligning BSNLEU and it's General Secretary. This miscreant had spread a similar poster on a previous occasion also. BSNLEU has taken this matter to the notice of the General Secretary, NFTE. We hope that needful action will be taken against this miscreant, by the NFTE leadership.
