आखिर हड़ताल स्थगित क्यों ?

जैसा कि बताया जा चुका है, 03.12.2018 से होने वाली अनिश्चितकालीन हड़ताल स्थगित की गई है। हड़ताल के कॉल की वजह से ही माननीय संचार राज्य मंत्री को हमारे मुद्दों के निराकरण के लिए AUAB के साथ चर्चाओं के लिए बाध्य होना पड़ा। निःसंदेह, हड़ताल के कॉल से AUAB की कई प्रमुख डिमांड्स का निराकरण हुआ है, जिनका विवरण निम्नानुसार है।


(a) 4G स्पेक्ट्रम का आवंटन :
BSNL को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम का आवंटन न होना BSNL के लिए एक बड़ी क्षति थी। इस संबंध में माननीय संचार राज्य मंत्री द्वारा फरवरी 2018 में दिए गए आश्वासन पर अमल नही किया गया था। कल की मीटिंग में माननीय MoS(C) {मंत्री महोदय}  द्वारा जानकारी दी गई कि BSNL को 4G स्पेक्ट्रम अलॉटमेंट हेतु कैबिनेट नोट अन्य मंत्रालयों को प्रेषित किया जा चुका है। उन्होंने यह भी आश्वासित किया कि इस कार्य को अन्य मंत्रालयों से तत्परता से करवाने हेतु DOT के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी को डेप्यूट भी किया जाएगा। माननीय MoS(C) ने यह भी विश्वास दिलाया कि यह प्रक्रिया पूर्ण होते ही कैबिनेट की आगामी मीटिंग में इसे प्रस्तुत कर दिया जाएगा। BSNL के वित्तीय उन्नयन की दिशा में यह एक मेजर ब्रेकथ्रू है और निःसंदेह AUAB के लिए एक बड़ी उपलब्धि भी।

(b) रिटायरीज का पेंशन रिवीजन:
अभी तक, DOT द्वारा पेंशन रिवीजन को कार्यरत कर्मियों के वेज रिवीजन से सम्बद्ध (लिंक) किया जा रहा था। वे इस बात पर दृढ़ता से अडिग थे कि कार्यरत कर्मचारियों के वेज रिवीजन के बाद ही पेंशन रिवीजन किया जाएगा। लेकिन अब 02.12.2018 को सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम के साथ और 03.12.2018 को माननीय MoS(C) के साथ सम्पन्न मीटिंग में AUAB को बताया गया है कि पेंशन रिवीजन को कार्यरत कर्मियों के वेज रिवीजन से पृथक (delink) किया जा रहा है। यह, इस स्ट्राइक कॉल की बहुत बड़ी उपलब्धि है। AUAB पेंशन के जल्द से जल्द रिवीजन की सुनिश्चितता हेतु भरसक प्रयास करेगा।

(c) BSNL द्वारा पेंशन कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन के भुगतान हेतु गवर्नमेंट के नियम लागू होंगे:
माननीय MoS(C) ने स्पष्ट रूप से कहा कि BSNL के लिए भी गवर्नमेंट के नियम लागू किए जाएंगे, जिसके अनुसार BSNL पेंशन कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन का भुगतान वास्तविक मूल वेतन पर करेगा। इस संबंध में DOT की अनुशंसा के साथ प्रकरण वित्त मंत्रालय को प्रेषित भी कर दिया गया है। 

(d) 2nd PRC के शेष मुद्दे:
एक लंबे अरसे से बीएसएनएल मैनेजमेंट से 2nd PRC की अनुशंसाओं को मान्य करने की मांग की जाती रही है जिसके अनुसार मैनेजमेंट को डायरेक्टली रिक्रूटेड कर्मियों के सुपरएन्युएशन बेनिफिट्स हेतु 30% कंट्रीब्यूट करना है। इस संबंध में CMD BSNL ने उनके साथ हुई 02.12.2018 की मीटिंग में आश्वासित किया है कि पेंशन कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन में बीएसएनएल के  कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन में 3% की वृद्धि मार्च 2019 तक की जाएगी और शेष 4% की वृद्धि तत्पश्चात एक साथ की जाएगी। इस तरह 2nd PRC की अनुशंसा अनुसार  सुपरएन्युएशन बेनिफिट्स लागू नही किए जाने के प्रकरण का निराकरण भी हो चुका है।

(e) कर्मचारियों का 3rd पे रिवीजन:
कर्मचारियों के 3rd पे रिवीजन के मुद्दे का अंतिम रूप से निराकरण (final settlement) नही हो पाया है। चर्चाओं के दौरान माननीय MoS(C) और साथ ही सेक्रेटरी, टेलीकॉम ने बताया कि कर्मचारियों का पे रिवीजन तो होगा, किन्तु 15% फिटमेंट नही दिया जा सकता है। AUAB के प्रतिनिधियों ने 15%फिटमेंट के साथ पे रिवीजन किस तरह दिया जा सकता है, इस संबंध में विस्तृत रूप से अपना प्रस्तुतिकरण माननीय MoS(C) के समक्ष रखा। किन्तु इसे स्वीकार नही किया गया। AUAB यह महसूस करती है कि इस मुद्दे पर DOT के साथ और पहल करने की जरूरत है और इस हेतु कुछ और समय देना होगा।


माननीय MoS(C) के साथ संपन्न मीटिंग पश्चात हुई AUAB की मीटिंग में लीडर्स ने इस तथ्य को एप्रीशिएट किया कि स्ट्राइक कॉल की वजह से कर्मचारी लाभान्वित हुए हैं। इस लाभ को कंसोलिडेट करने के लिए दिए गए आश्वासनों का क्रियान्वयन/ पत्र जारी करवाना सुनिश्चित करना होगा।  वेज रिवीजन के मुद्दे पर AUAB ने निर्णय लिया है कि इस मुद्दे के निदान हेतु DOT को कुछ और समय दिया जाए। किन्तु, AUAB की यह पहल विफल होनेकी स्थिति में पुनः संघर्ष जरूरी होगा।

Hindi translation of "Developments on 3rd Pay Revision."

3rd पे रिवीजन पर हुई प्रगति....

विगत 2 दिनों से CMD BSNL और डायरेक्टर (HR) AUAB के साथ चर्चा कर रहे हैं। उनके द्वारा 3rd पे रिवीजन के संबंध में DoT द्वारा दिए गए प्रस्ताव बाबद जानकारी दी गई। प्रस्ताव अनुसार, 0% फिटमेंट के साथ 3rd पे रिवीजन तत्काल किया जा सकता है। तत्पश्चात, माननीय मंत्री महोदय 5% फिटमेंट के लिए कैबिनेट के समक्ष मुद्दा ले जाएंगे। AUAB में सभी महासचिवों ने आपस मे चर्चा कर सर्वानुमति से निर्णय लिया कि   10% फिटमेंट की हमारी न्यूनतम मांग होनी चाहिए। यह CMD BSNL के माध्यम से DoT को सूचित कर दिया गया है। BSNLEU ऐसा समझती है कि पे रिवीजन 0% फिटमेंट के साथ ही किया जाएगा। हम मंत्री महोदय द्वारा 5% फिटमेंट का प्रस्ताव कैबिनेट के अनुमोदन हेतु प्रस्तुत करने के आश्वासन पर विश्वास नही कर सकते हैं। हमारा अभी तक का यह अनुभव है कि DoT और माननीय मंत्री महोदय द्वारा जो भी आश्वासन दिए गए उनका पालन नही हुआ। अतः, BSNLEU सभी सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट सेक्रेटरीज से अनुरोध करती है कि हड़ताल की सफलता हेतु किए जा रहे प्रयास जारी रखें। इस संबंध में जो भी प्रगति होगी, उससे तुरंत अवगत कराया जाएगा।

Why are they not going on VRS ?

The top officers of BSNL Management are not able to pay salary to the employees on time. They are not able to pay wages to the contract workers for the past 10 months. They are not able to remit the recoveries on GPF contribution, bank loan EMI, society dues, etc., to the concerned organisations since May 2019. Till date they are not able get the Pension Rules amended, to ensure commutation of pension benefit to the VRS optees. They are unable to give guarantee that the VRS optees will get Pay Revision, if it is implemented retrospectively in BSNL. Thus, the top officers of BSNL are not able to do anything , except telling that everyone should go on VRS. But, why these top officers are not going on VRS? Yes, it is the top officers of BSNL, who should immediately opt for VRS.

Talks fail - AUAB decides to go ahead with the strike..

The CMD BSNL and Director HR met the AUAB leaders yesterday the 15.02.2019. The AUAB representatives told the Management that, they are prepared to accept 3rd Pay Revision with 5% fitment, as offered earlier by the DoT. However, they demanded that this commitment should be given in writing by the DoT, so that the AUAB can consider deferment of the strike. Even this demand of the AUAB is not accepted. Further, the DoT has also diluted it's earlier assurance to give DA neutralisation. The DoT is demanding that the AUAB should call off the strike, in view of the terror attack in Pulwama. The Secretary, Telecom, has put a condition that she would not meet the AUAB leaders, unless they call off the strike. Immediately after the meeting with the BSNL Management, all the General Secretaries of the AUAB met and decided to go ahead with the strike. The AUAB has also decided to exempt J&K circle from the strike, to ensure maintenance of services, in the backdrop of the terror attack. The AUAB requests all the circle and district unions to organise the strike powerfully..

Intensify the "BSNL At Your Door Steps" programme..

The BSNL is undergoing severe financial crunch. Various false reports are appearing in the media, stating that the government is going to give a bail out package to BSNL and MTNL, to the extent of Rs.74,000 crore. This news is nothing but totally bogus. What BSNL is likely to get from the government is, the allotment of 4G spectrum, free of cost. Apart from this, the government is not going to give even a single naya paisa as financial assistance to BSNL. Banks are also not coming forward to extend loan to BSNL.  This is the actual position. So, the only option left out for the BSNL is to take all out efforts to increase it’s revenue collections. The AUAB has already called on the Executives and Non-Executives to intensify the “BSNL At Your Door Steps” programme. Hence, the circle and district secretaries of BSNLEU are requested to take the initiative and also to coordinate with the other unions and associations, to effectively implement the call. More revenue has to be generated through bringing in more FTTH connections, collection of outstanding dues and disposing off of the scrap materials dumped in various circles. The BSNL employees have rose to the occasion many times in the past, to save the Company. In the similar way, the BSNL employees have to conduct the "BSNL At Your Doorsteps" programme in an intensified manner, to save the future of the Company and it's employees.

The 3 day hunger strike from 20th November, 2019 stands postponed.

The outcome of the talks held yesterday, between the AUAB and the Director (HR), is not at all satisfactory. Only assurance given is that, salary will be paid on 28th. Then what about November salary? No answer. Most importantly, there is no improvement on the issue of remittance of recoveries, which is hurting the employees the most. Similarly, no improvement on contract workers' wages. No improvement in any of the problems related to the VRS optees. What about reduction of retirement age to 58 years? What is the assurance on 30% superannuation benefit? The BSNL Management is only trying to save their skin, but not worried about the problems of the employees. However, there is no unanimity among the constituents of the AUAB to go ahead with the 3 day hunger strike. Hence, the 3 day hunger strike from 20th November, 2019 stands postponed. BSNLEU will decide about the future course of action and inform shortly.

Atrocious price-hiking of petrol and diesel - Kerala circle union organises demonstrations.

At a time when the crude oil price is very low in the international market, the prices of petrol and diesel keep on sky-rocketing in India.  In the last 18 days alone, both the price of petrol, and the price of diesel have increased by more than Rs.10/- per litre. 

 

In January, 2018 the price of diesel at Delhi was Rs.61.74 in Delhi. In one and half years the price has increased by Rs.18/-. Petrol cost Rs.79.76 per litre at Delhi today and diesel cost Rs.79.88 per litre. The one person who is most benefited by the hiking of prices of petrol and diesel, by the Narendra Modi government, is Mukesh Ambani. He is controlling a big share in India's Petro-chemical industry. It may be recollected that recently Mukesh Ambani jumped into the club of 10 richest persons in the world. He is the 9th richest person in the world now.

 

The Kerala circle union of BSNLEU, organised state- wide demonstrations yesterday, against the atrocious hiking of prices of petrol and diesel. CHQ congratulates the Kerala circle union.
