B) Strong opposition to curtailment of Medical facilities of serving and retired employees.

The representatives handed over the letter of the Union, opposing curtailment of medical facilities of the serving and retired employees. They told the CMD BSNL that, the employees are agitated over the decision of the Management to reduce the ceiling from 25 days to 12 days ( ceiling for outdoor treatment), as well as the decision to withdraw the facility of "payment without voucher" for retired employees, in cities covered by CGHS scheme. The representatives briefly pointed out how substantial savings could be made, by reducing wasteful expenditure, and demanded to convene an all union/association meeting, to take concrete decisions on reducing wasteful expenditure. The CMD BSNL assured to look into the issue.


C) Opposition to taking over of BSNL's office space by TERM CELL.

The representatives requested the CMD BSNL to stop the handing over of BSNL's office space to TERM CELL at Jammu, so that the CGM office, Jammu, could be shifted to that place, from the rented place in which it is functioning presently. The CMD BSNL assured to do the needful.

BSNL is far ahead of Airtel, Vodafone and Idea, in customer growth rate in 2017 - Only second to Reliance Jio.

As per the data released by the TRAI, BSNL is far ahead of Airtel, Vodafone and Idea, as far as the customer growth rate is concerned. In 2017, Airtel has added 24.26 million new mobile customers, and it's growth rate is 9.13%. Vodafone has added 7.84 million new customers and it's growth rate is 3.83%. Idea cellular has added 5.98 million new customers and it's growth rate is 3.14%. Whereas, BSNL has added 11.13 million new customers and it's growth rate is 11.50%. Reliance Jio has added 87.93 million new customers and it's growth rate is a stunning 121.86%. It is a matter of pride for all of us that BSNL's growth rate is far ahead of Airtel, Vodafone and Idea cellular. When all the private telecom companies are wilting under the pressure of Jio, it is only BSNL, which is putting up stiff challenge to it. Let us put in our entire energy to bring BSNL out of loss and make it India's number one telecom company. CHQ requests all our functionaries to give maximum publicity to this news among the public, through our ongoing Street Corner Meetings.

Further, it was also demanded that the officials retiring shortly, should be sent back to Hyderabad, otherwise it will create difficulties in the payment of their pension.

FNTO - An expert liar, continues to spread lies and slanders.

FNTO which is already rejected and sidelined by the BSNL employees, is frantically trying to come back to the lime-light by spreading lies and slanders. Especially, when the BSNL employees are very anxious about their wage revision, FNTO is trying to exploit this anxiety of the employees, by telling cock and bull stories.

 

  1. In it’s website updating, FNTO has stated that, Com.P.Abhimanyu,GS, BSNLEU, had told that BSNL employees were not eligible for wage revision. This is a total lie. In the meeting held with CMD BSNL, on 09.08.2017, Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, had only explained about the DPE order issued on 03.08.2017, (just one week before that meeting) regarding wage revision of the Non-Executives of the PSUs. According to that DPE letter dated 03.08.2017, BSNL employees are not eligible for wage revision. However, FNTO, which is expert in lying, has twisted what Com.P.Abhimanyu actually told. All those who are interested in knowing the fact, can visit BSNLEU’s website updating dated 09.08.2017, which is still there.

 

  1. It is true that some of the DR TTAs, appointed on or after 01.01.2007, suffered wage loss. But it is not due to any problem in the pay scale, but due to some other factor. Prior to the 2nd wage revision, the BSNL employees got 50% DA merger. This DA merger is eligible only to those employees who were eligible for wage revision, i.e., those who were appointed prior to 01.01.2007. However, by mistake, the BSNL Management gave this 50% DA merger benefit even to those employees who were not eligible for wage revision, since they were appointed on or after 01.01.2007.

 

When the wage revision was implemented, these TTAs suffered wage loss, since the benefit of 50% DA merger was taken away. However, BSNLEU and NFTE continuously fought on this issue, inside and outside the National Council. As a result of this, the DR TTAs, appointed on or after 01.01.2007, and who suffered wage loss, got one extra increment, with arrears of more than Rs.1 lakh also.

 

FNTO which sheds crocodile tears today, did not do anything to settle this problem. It is highly ridiculous that without even knowing all these facts, the great brains of FNTO are trying to tell some cock and bull stories to the employees, for creating confusion.

 

  1. BSNLEU, the Sole Recognised Union at the time of 2nd wage revision, settled the wage revision by conducting a two day glorious strike. Once again we wish to reiterate that FNTO became a betrayer of this strike and stabbed on the back of the striking employees, by writing a betrayal letter to the Management.

 

Executives got 2nd Pay Revision, w.e.f. 01.01.2007, as per the recommendations of the 2nd PRC. Their order for pay revision was issued prior to the wage revision of the Non-Executives. It is an undeniable fact that Executives were given only 68.8% IDA merger. They did not get 78.2% IDA merger. Citing this, Management offered only 68.8% IDA merger for the Non-Executives. But BSNLEU did not accept that.

 

Only because of the struggles conducted by BSNLEU, the Management was compelled to include a clause in the wage revision agreement of the Non-Executives that, 78.2% IDA merger would be given to the Non-Executives, as and when it is given to the Executives. It is because of this clause ensured by BSNLEU, in the wage revision agreement, the door for the settlement of 78.2% IDA merger was kept open. Only because of this, subsequently, all the Unions and Associations gave indefinite strike notice, as a result of which 78.2% IDA merger was settled.

 

BSNLEU wishes to once again state that, after the 2nd wage revision, BSNL Non-Executives got more pay then the Bank employees. This is not because of the mercy of Minister A. Raja, or the Management. It was achieved because of the glorious struggle of BSNL employees, in which FNTO was a black leg. History will never forget the betrayal of FNTO.

Batman and bucket man.

A week ago it was reported in the media that Akash Vijayvargiya, a BJP MLA from Madhya Pradesh, attacked a civic body officer with cricket bat, who had gone to oversee the demolition of encroachments. It is important to note that Akash Vijayvargiya is a son of a top ranking BJP leader, Kailash Vijayvargiya. Again, yesterday it was reported in the media that, Nitesh Rane, MLA, who is the son of former Maharashtra Chief Minister, Narayan Rane attacked an engineer of the NHAI, by pouring buckets of mud on him. No citizen has the right to take the law into his own hands. What Akash Vijayvargiya and Nitish Rane may say is that, only ordinary citizens cannot take law into their own hands, but we are law-makers and we can take.

Hindi Translation of "Why are they not going on VRS ?"

*वें VRS पर क्यों नही जा रहे हैं ?*

BSNL मैनेजमेंट के उच्च अधिकारी कर्मचारियों को समय पर वेतन देने में सक्षम नही है। वें कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को भी विगत 10 माह से वेजेस  देने में सक्षम नही हैं। वें मई 2019 से GPF कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन, बैंक लोन, EMI, सोसाइटी बकाया आदि की वसूली गई राशि भी संबंधित संस्थाओं को प्रेषित करने में सक्षम नही है। आज दिनांक तक वें पेंशन रूल्स में संशोधन करने में भी सक्षम नही हो पाए हैं, जिससे कि VRS ऑप्टीज को पेंशन कम्युटेशन का लाभ मिल सके। वें VRS ऑप्टीज को यह गारंटी भी नही दे पा रहे हैं कि VRS ऑप्टीज को पे रिवीजन का लाभ मिलेगा, यदि BSNL में इसका पूर्व दिनांक से कार्यान्वयन हो जाता है। इस प्रकार, BSNL के उच्च अधिकारी कुछ भी करने में सक्षम नही है, सिवा, सभी को यह कहने के कि सभी को VRS पर जाना चाहिए। लेकिन ये उच्च अधिकारी स्वयं VRS पर क्यों नही जा रहे हैं ? जी हां, ये BSNL के उच्च अधिकारी ही हैं जिन्हें तत्काल VRS ऑप्ट करना चाहिए।

Hindi translation of "March to Corporate Office on 03.03.2020, demanding settlement of the problems of contract workers"

 

कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स की समस्याओं के निराकरण की मांग करते हुए 03.03.2020 को "मार्च टू कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस"....
विगत 10 माह से कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स के वेजेस का भुगतान नही होने से उन्हें अत्यंत परेशानियों का सामना करना पड़ रहा है। इस संबंध में प्रबंधन से कई बार चर्चा की जा चुकी है। किंतु, प्रबन्धन के दृष्टिकोण में, कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स को वेजेस का भुगतान उनके लिए अंतिम प्राथमिकता है। इसके अलावा, कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस द्वारा कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स की बड़ी संख्या में छंटनी हेतु पत्र भी जारी किया गया है। यह बताना जरूरी नही है कि VRS लागू होने के मद्दे नजर स्टाफ की बहुत ज्यादा कमी हो गई है और ऐसे में अनुभवी कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स BSNL की सेवाओं के रखरखाव हेतु बेहद उपयोगी साबित होंगे। किन्तु, कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस द्वारा BSNL के कार्य करवाने हेतु वर्तमान में जारी  " लेबर कॉन्ट्रैक्ट सिस्टम" के स्थान पर  "जॉब कॉन्ट्रैक्ट सिस्टम" हेतु पत्र जारी किया गया है। प्रबंधन के इस निर्णय ने BSNL में वर्तमान में कार्यरत कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स का भविष्य खतरे में डाल दिया है। उपर्युक्त परिप्रेक्ष्य में, BSNLEU और BSNL केज्युअल कॉन्ट्रैक्ट वर्कर्स फेडरेशन (BSNL CCWF), दोनों ने ही उपर्युक्त मुद्दों पर BSNL मैनेजमेंट से अनुकूल कार्यवाही करने की मांग करते हुए 03.03.2020 को नई दिल्ली में रैली आयोजित करने का निर्णय लिया है। कल दिनांक 11.02.2020 को सम्पन्न BSNLEU के ऑल इंडिया सेन्टर की मीटिंग में यह निर्णय लिया गया है कि NTR और कॉर्पोरेट ऑफिस सर्कल्स के अलावा समीपस्थ सर्कल्स यूपी(वेस्ट), हरियाणा, राजस्थान, पंजाब, हिमाचल प्रदेश, उत्तराखंड और यूपी(ईस्ट) से अधिक से अधिक संख्या में BSNL कर्मचारियों को इस रैली हेतु संगठित (mobilise) किया जाए। CHQ द्वारा उपरोक्त सर्किल सेक्रेटरीज को रैली के लिए अधिक से अधिक कॉमरेड्स को संगठित (mobilise) करने का अनुरोध करते हुए पत्र लिखा गया है।

JTO PHASE-1 training - Corporate Office nullifies the wrong decisions of the CGM, ALTTC - training will be on-line now.

For the past 2 weeks, CHQ has been regularly making updatings on the website, about the JTO Phase-I Training problem. At a time, when the Corona Virus Disease is spreading fast, the CGM, ALTTC, took the atrocious decision to start the centralised JTO Phase-I training at ALTTC, Ghaziabad, to all the 116 JTO Phase-I candidates  from 07.06.2020.  BSNLEU strongly opposed this decision. BSNLEU told the Director (HR) and GM (Training), BSNL CO., that compelling DR JEs to travel 2,000 / 1,000 kms at this juncture, will expose them to the infection of the dreaded Corona Virus. Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, spoke to the Shri Arvind Vadnerkar, Director (HR) and Shri Ashutosh Gupta, GM(Training), several rounds. They assured that a decision would be taken, keeping all the concerns of BSNLEU into consideration. 

 

Now, the Corporate Office has issued letter, nullifying the wrong decisions of the CGM, ALTTC. The Corporate Office has  decided that, JTO Phase-I training would now be conducted online and the exam would be conducted in the nearest RTTCs of the candidates. This is a path- breaking decision of the Corporate Office, keeping the ongoing Corona Virus Disease into consideration. 

 

 BSNLEU heartily thanks Shri Arvind Vadnerkar, Director (HR) and Shri Ashutosh Gupta, GM(Training), BSNL CO for protecting the interests of the the 116 DR JEs. Now, these candidates need not worry about travelling 2,000 / 1,000 kms to Ghaziabad and getting infected with COVID-19. They also need not worry about  their Phase-I training getting delayed. BSNLEU heartily congratulates all the 116 JTO Phase-I trainees.

Hindi translate of "If coal workers and trade unions can achieve, why can’t BSNL employees and the unions / associations?"

यदि कोल् वर्कर्स और उनकी ट्रेड यूनियन्स हासिल कर सकती है तो फिर BSNL कर्मी और यूनियन्स/ एसोसिएशन्स क्यों नही ?

मोदी सरकार ने सम्पूर्ण पब्लिक सेक्टर, भारतीय रेल, डिफेंस प्रोडक्शन फैक्टरीज, पेट्रोलियम (BPCL), इलेक्ट्रिसिटी, बैंकिंग, LIC वगैरह वगैरह के निजीकरण का जबरदस्त अभियान शुरू किया है। 

कोयला खदानों के संबंध में मोदी सरकार ने निर्णय लिया था कि देश भर में 41 कोल् ब्लॉक्स भारतीय और विदेशी कॉर्पोरेट्स को सौंप दिए जाएं। कोल् सेक्टर की सभी ट्रेड यूनियन्स ने निजीकरण का विरोध किया। उन्होंने,आम लोगों के बीच  इस निजीकरण के संबंध में व्यापक अभियान चलाया। तत्पश्चात, सभी कोयला कर्मी 2 से 4 जुलाई, 2020 तक 3 दिन की हड़ताल पर चले गए। हड़ताल पूर्ण रूप से सफल हुई।
 
कोयला कर्मियों की इस आक्रामक हड़ताल के परिणाम स्वरूप अब सरकार को कोयला खदानों का निजीकरण करना काफी कठिन हो गया है। दो बार, सरकार ने 41 कोल ब्लॉक्स की नीलामी हेतु सूचना जारी की। किन्तु, इस नीलामी में शामिल होने के लिए कोई भी आगे नही आया। अतः, सरकार ने नीलामी प्रक्रिया को अक्टूबर/नवंबर 2020 तक आगे बढ़ाया है। कोल सेक्टर की ट्रेड यूनियन्स का भी नवंबर में हड़ताल पर जाना प्रस्तावित है।
  
यदि कोल् वर्कर्स और उनकी ट्रेड यूनियन्स निजीकरण रोकने के लिए लड़ सकती है तो फिर 4G सेवा तत्काल शुरू करने और BSNL को बीमार PSU बनने से बचाने के लिए BSNL कर्मी और यूनियन्स/ एसोसिएशन्स क्यों नही लड़ सकते हैं ?

Whether employees appointed on or after 01.01.2017 will face wage loss - Lies of FNTO exposed.

FNTO is spreading rumours that the pay of the Non-Executives, who are appointed on or after 01.01.2017, is going to be reduced, because of the new pay scales being finalised by the Joint Wage Negotiating Committee. This is not correct. None of the Non-Executive appointed on or after 01.01.2017 is going to be affected. Presently, recruitment is being made in NE-1 pay scale (RM / Gr.D) ; NE-7 pay scale (Sr.TOA) and NE-9 pay scale (JE). We have worked out the basic pay drawn by the employees of these three cadres in the pre-revised pay scale as well as basic pay they are going to get in the revised pay scale. These calculations prove that the great brains of FNTO are unnecessarily trying to scare the newly recruited employees.
