We expressed our serious concern that the Govt is not taking any steps to resolve the issues of lakhs of employees. The Unions and Assns will intensify the agitations in the coming days. On 23rd Feb, huge Sanchar Bhavan (DoT) March is planned in which thousands of comrades from all over India will be participating. The formation of Tower Subsidiary has to be rolled back, 3rd PRC to be implemented with 15% fitment, Pension revision and outstanding issues of 2nd PRC are to be settled etc are the major demands.
DIR(HR) informed that due to the competition and market condition, revenue is coming down and the financial condition of the company is not good. Any impact on the services will further affect the revenue which in turn will affect all.
Union/Assn leaders explained that on earlier occasions, management arranged the meetings with the Secretary/DoT or the Hon Minister as the case may be and through discussions, issues are settled. However, such initiatives are not found nowadays, during agitations.
DIR(HR) personally tried for the meeting by contacting MoSC office. Finally DIR(HR) assured to make possible efforts for meeting at DoT once CMD returns on Monday. All Unions and Associations will be meeting on 06.02.2018.

AUAB हड़ताल का सहारा लेने के लिए बाध्य होगी - AUAB ने एडिशनल सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम को चेताया....

The AUAB has given call to conduct a March to Sanchar Bhawan on 05.04.2019. At this juncture, some mischief mongers are trying to confuse the employees. They are asking what is the use of conducting a March at Delhi, when the Code of Conduct has already been put in place ? It is true that government cannot not take any policy decision after the Code of Conduct came into force. At the same time, a lot of works has to be done by the DoT, for the financial revival of BSNL, even while the Code of Conduct is in force. For example, the issue of implementation of Government Rule on payment of pension contribution, does not attract the Code of Conduct. It is only implementation of the already existing government order, in respect of BSNL. Similarly, giving approval for BSNL’s Land Management Policy, by the DoT, can be done even when the Code of Conduct is imposed. This will help BSNL to immediately monetise it’s vacant lands and to generate huge revenue. Giving approval for BSNL to take bank loans for it’s operational expenditures, is another important issue, which does not attract the Code of Conduct. Even on the 3rd Pay Revision issue, the DoT should complete it’s groundwork now itself, so that the new government can take a final call immediately after the Parliament elections. And why the DoT is not doing all these, is the most important question. It is because of DoT’s anti-BSNL mindset. Hence, the March to Sanchar Bhawan is very much required at this point of time.

Qassim Soleimani, the top Army General of Iran was killed yesterday, while he was in the Baghdad Airport. He was killed in a sophisticated air attack by the United States. An MQ-9 Reaper drone of the US, fired missiles at the Baghdad Airport, killing Suleiman on the spot. Killing the top Army General of Iran is nothing but openly declaring a war on that country by the United States. Undoubtedly, this is a terrorist act. This killing has triggered tension around the world. Many countries including France, China and Russia have condemned this provocative action of the United States.

BSNLEU ने यह कर दिखाया- लॉकडाउन पीरियड के दौरान सफलतापूर्वक राष्ट्रव्यापी प्रदर्शन आयोजित किए गए...
किसी भी प्रकार की ट्रेड यूनियन कार्यवाही करने के लिए यह अत्यंत कठिन समय है। कोविड-19 की रोकथाम के लिए देश भर में लॉकडाउन किया गया है। नागरिकों की स्वतंत्रता पूर्वक आवाजाही पर कड़े प्रतिबंध है। इसके बावजूद, BSNLEU के CHQ ने यह सीखा दिया कि कुछ राज्य सरकारों द्वारा दमनपूर्वक कार्य के घंटों में वृद्धि करने, कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स के साथ की जा रही नाइंसाफी और साथ ही वेतन भुगतान में विलंब और मेडिकल सुविधाओं में की गई कटौती के खिलाफ राष्ट्रव्यापी विरोध करने का ये उपयुक्त समय है। यह अत्यंत सुखद है कि BSNLEU के सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट लेवल के लीडर्स ने स्थिति की गंभीरता को महसूस करते हुए, सोशल डिस्टनसिंग का पालन करते हुए, बेहद सफलतापूर्वक भोजन अवकाश में प्रदर्शन आयोजित किए हैं। अधिकांश सर्कल्स में कार्यक्रम अत्यंत प्रभावी रुप से आयोजित किया गया है। BSNLEU ने एक बार पुनः यह साबित कर दिया है कि वह एक संघर्षशील संगठन है। CHQ, सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट लेवल के उन सभी लीडर्स को बधाई देता है, जिन्होंने सफलतापूर्वक कार्यक्रम आयोजित किया। CHQ, लॉकडाउन के प्रभावी होने के बावजूद प्रदर्शन में शिरकत करने वाले सभी कॉमरेड्स को भी सलाम करता है।

It is shocking to know that masked goondas, armed with iron rods, sledgehammers, etc., have organised a brutal attack on the JNU students yesterday, inside the campus. 35 students have been injured seriously in the 3 hour attack. It is reported the students belonging to the Left Student Unions were targeted. 15 stitches are made on the injury sustained by the President of the JNU Students' Union. Even the teachers who came to protect the students have been attacked. The JNU Students Union has accused that police and security guards stood as silent spectators, when the attack took place. Recently, the JNU Students have organised massive struggles in Delhi, against the fee hike. The JNU students also remain in the forefront of the struggles presently taking place against the CAA. Hence, the attack on JNU students is an attempt to scare them from participating in democratic movements. It is an attempt to strangle the voice of democracy. BSNLEU strongly condemns this cowardly attack on the JNU students.
