Defence federations plan indefinite strike against corporatisation of Ordnance Factories..

The major trade unions of the 82,000 ordnance factory employees have started preparing for an indefinite strike, against the proposed corporatisation of the Ordnance Factories Board. 41 Ordnance Factories across the country are coming under the control of this Ordnance Factories Board. The government has decided to corporatise the Ordnance Factories Board and to list it in the share market. It is needless to state that the corporatisation of the Ordnance Factories Board is the major step towards it’s privatisation. Against this move, the major federations have decided to hold strike ballot in all the factories between June, 8 and June, 17. The Federations will issue an indefinite strike notice after the strike ballot is completed. It is important to note that a few months back, the ordnance workers launched a 30 day strike against the privatisation of the ordnance factories. The strike was withdrawn after the government held talks with the Federations and gave assurance.

Submarine OFC between Chennai and Portblair to be inaugurated on Monday.

The newly laid sub-marine Optic Fibre Cable, between Chennai and Port Blair, will be inaugurated by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, on 10th August, 2020. This cable will provide high speed broadband facility between the Indian main land and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. 

 

The 2,300 km sub-marine Optic Fibre Cable has been laid at a cost of Rs.1,224 crore. It is funded from the USO Fund. Laying of this sub-marine Optic Fibre Cable is entrusted to BSNL, which has executed the project on time.

 

This sub-marine Optic Fibre Cable will provide 2 x 200 Gigabits bandwidth between Chennai and Port Blair. It will provide 2 x 100 Gigabits bandwidth within the Andaman & Nicobar Islands.      

 

Presently, satellite bandwidth is being used to connect the Indian main land and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. This satellite bandwidth is costly. Moreover, the connectivity was poor and frequent disruptions were also there. 

 

Based on the request of BSNLEU, Andaman & Nicobar circle union, the CHQ of BSNLEU, first raised in the National Council a few years ago, that a sub-marine Optic Fibre Cable should be laid between the Indian mainland and Port Blair. BSNLEU also took up this demand with the Secretary, Telecom. BSNLEU has been consistently pressing the BSNL Management and the DoT on this matter. Now, the longstanding demand of the people Andaman & Nicobar is fulfilled. BSNLEU feels proud that, it has also played a small role in fulfilling this demand.

Wealth of 101 Indian Billionaires equals 13% of GDP.

We have been telling that inequality is widening rapidly after the implementation of Neo-Liberal policies. A very big portion of the wealth that is being generated in the country, is being garnered by the big corporates. Statistics say that 1% of the Indian population is having 58% of the Nation’s wealth. Now, one more evidence has come to prove our claim that, the rich is growing richer. According to the Forbes 2017 Billionaires list, 101 Indian Billionaires are having wealth which is equivalent to 13% of India’s GDP. It must also be noted that simultaneously news are coming from many states reporting starvation deaths.

Do not believe dramas.

On 06.11.2018, the DoT has written a letter to the CMD BSNL, wherein virtually the important demands of BSNL employees, viz., 3rd Pay Revision, allotment of 4G spectrum and payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay, have been rejected. The AUAB leaders took this to the notice of the Director (HR) in the meeting held on 13.11.2018, and expressed their severe protest. Consequent to this, the issue was taken to the notice of the Secretary, Telecom, by the Director (HR). It is reported that, on the next day, the Secretary, Telecom, summoned the concerned officer under whose signature this letter was issued, and questioned him how such a letter was issued without the knowledge of the Secretary, Telecom. So far as we are concerned, these are all drama, and we are not prepared to believe these stories. It is the same Secretary, Telecom, who kept sitting on the assurances given by the Hon’ble MoS(C) for eight long months, without taking any action to implement those assurances. Hence, hereafter we are not prepared to believe stories. We want only action. Only indefinite strike of the entire 1.85 lakh BSNL employees is going to make the people sitting in the Sanchar Bhawan to take meaningful action. Hence, do not believe stories and make fullest preparation to make the indefinite strike successful.

At last, the Recruitment Branch of the Corporate Office agrees to hold JE LICE as 'off-line' exam.

In the last meeting of the National Council, BSNLEU demanded that the JE LICE should not be conducted as ‘on-line’ exam and should be conducted as an ‘off-line’ exam. BSNLEU pointed out the poor results of the JE LICE, conducted as an ‘on-line’ exam. The Director (HR), who is the Chairperson of the National Council, accepted the demand of BSNLEU that the JE LICE should be conducted as an ‘off-line’ exam. However, the Recruitment Branch of the Corporate Office was delaying this issue unnecessarily. BSNLEU had taken this to the notice of the Director (HR) several times. As a result of this, BSNLEU was called for discussion yesterday by Ms. Samita Luthra, GM (Rectt.). Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS and Com.Swapan Chakraborty, Dy.GS, participated. BSNLEU expressed it’s unhappiness that this issue was being dragged on by the Recruitment Branch. Ultimately, the GM (Rectt.) agreed to conduct the JE LICE as an ‘off-line’ exam.
