BSNL में पूर्ण असमंजस की स्थिति- BSNL, कर्मचारियों और VRS ऑप्टीज के हितों की रक्षा के लिए 20 नवंबर, 2019 से 3 दिवसीय भूख हड़ताल का AUAB का निर्णय....
AUAB की मीटिंग कल दिनांक 14.11.2019 को सम्पन्न हुई। मीटिंग में BSNLEU, NFTE, SNEA, AIBSNLEA, FNTO, BSNL MS, SNATTA, BSNL ATM और BSNL OA के महासचिव/ प्रतिनिधि शामिल हुए। मीटिंग में मैनेजमेंट द्वारा अक्टूबर माह के वेतन भुगतान हेतु कोई भी कदम न उठाए जाने पर गंभीरता के साथ चिंता व्यक्त की गई। कर्मचारी, उनके वेतन से कटौती की गई रिकवरी राशि, विगत 6 माह से संबंधित संस्थाओं को प्रेषित न किए जाने से अव्यक्त परेशानियों का सामना कर रहे हैं। साथ ही, मीटिंग में सरकार द्वारा 4G स्पेक्ट्रम आवंटित किए जाने के निर्णय के बावजूद , BSNL मैनेजमेंट की 4G सेवाओं की,त्वरित शुरुआत न किए जाने की अक्षमता पर गहरा आक्रोश व्यक्त किया गया।
VRS के नाम पर कर्मचारियों को डरा धमका कर, दबाव बना कर बड़ी संख्या में घर भेजा जा रहा है। वास्तव में यह FRS (Forced Retirement Scheme- बलपूर्वक सेवा निवृत्ति) बन चुकी है। कर्मचारियों को लगातार, रिटायरमेंट की उम्र घटा कर 58 वर्ष करने की धमकियां दी जा रही है। 3rd पे रिवीजन, पेंशन रिवीजन क्या पूर्व दिनांक से लागू होने पर प्राप्त होगा या नही, इस पर एक बड़ा प्रश्रचिन्ह VRS ऑप्टीज के समक्ष विद्यमान है।
VRS ऑप्टी को 60 वर्ष की आयु पूर्ण करने पर पेंशन कम्युटेशन प्राप्त हो सकेगा। किन्तु, वर्तमान नियमों के अनुसार, रिटायर हो रहे कर्मचारी को पेंशन कम्युटेशन आवेदन अपने रिटायरमेंट होने के पश्चात एक वर्ष की अवधि में ही देना होता है। अन्यथा, उसे मेडिकल जांच करवाना जरूरी होगा। यह मुद्दा, सभी VRS ऑप्टीज के लिए एक बड़ी समस्या निर्मित करेगा।
यदि VRS ऑप्टी की 60 वर्ष पूर्ण करने के पूर्व ही मृत्यु हो जाती है तो उसके परिवार को पेंशन कम्युटेशन का लाभ नही मिलेगा। यह VRS ऑप्टी के परिवार के लिए एक बड़ा नुकसान साबित होगा।
इन सभी मुद्दों का निराकरण किए बगैर, कर्मचारियों को VRS ऑप्ट करने हेतु बाध्य किया जा रहा है। बड़े पैमाने पर होने वाले इस VRS पश्चात, कार्य की अधिकता से कैसे निपटा जाएगा या कंपनी का स्वरूप कैसा रहेगा ? मैनेजमेंट इन मुद्दों पर अभी से ही यूनियन्स और एसोसिएशन्स से चर्चा हेतु बिल्कुल भी चिंतित नही है। वें तो केवल कर्मचारियों की वृहद पैमाने पर छंटनी करने के ही इच्छुक हैं।
आज AUAB की मीटिंग में 20, 21 और 22 नवंबर, 2019 को, 3 दिन लगातार कॉर्पोरेट, सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट लेवल पर इन सभी मुद्दों के निराकरण की मांग करते हुए भूख हड़ताल करने का निर्णय लिया गया। सभी सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट सेक्रेटरीज से अनुरोध हैं कि वें AUAB के अन्य घटकों से समन्वय कर प्रभावी रूप से भूख हड़ताल कार्यक्रम आयोजित करें।

Charter of demands
Due to the tariff war unleashed by Reliance Jio, the smaller telecom companies are struggling for their survival. Bigger companies like Vodafone and Idea are merging together, whereas, smaller companies are left with no other option, but to close down their business. Aircel, which is having a debt of Rs.15,500 crore loan has applied for bankruptcy, to the National Company Law Tribunal, under the Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code, 2016. As a result of this, Aircel's 5,000 employees are going to be thrown out of job. This is a tragedy. At the same time, this is a slap on the face of those who keep arguing that private companies are very efficient in their management and the government companies are inefficient. Even under the present adverse condition, BSNL's performance is far better than most of the private telecom companies.
It has already been announced that the 9th All India Conference of BSNLEU will be held at Mysuru from 08th to 11th January, 2019. The All India Centre meeting of BSNLEU, held today has finalised the allocation of delegates to various district unions, based on the quota received by the CHQ. District unions are requested to elect their delegates and observers on this basis.
(The All India Centre has been able to finalise the allocation of delegates only in respect of 20 circles, from where CHQ has received district wise break up figures of the CHQ quota. In respect of the remaining circles, allocation of delegates can be made only when those circles send the district wise break up figures of the CHQ quota.).

Srinivasulu reddy, AGS AIBSNLEA, Kabirdas, GS BSNLOA, Anilkumar, President, BSNL ATM, G.Mohan Reddy, Organising secretary, BSNLEU, Jaganmohan Reddy, Circle President, SNEA, Veerabhadra Rao, CS, AIGETOA, G.Saigoud, CS AIBSNLEA, Muthu, NFTE and Com. Yellamaiah, CS BSNLATM addressed the meeting and explained the necessity to make the indefinite strike 100% successful.
The future of the families of the 1.70 lakh BSNL employees is in dark. The government wants to kill BSNL. It does not want BSNL to compete on equal footing with Reliance Jio. So, it does not want to allot 4G spectrum to BSNL. It does want to allow BSNL to generate revenues from it’s vacant lands. It does not even want BSNL to take bank loans, while the private telecom companies, including Reliance Jio, are taking lakhs of crores of rupees as loans from government banks. It is doing everything to starve the families of the employees, by seeing to it that the employees do not get their salaries in the days to come. It wants to reduce the retirement age of the employees from 60 to 58. It is doing everything to create panic among the employees and thereby compelling them to take VRS and go home. According to Modi government, Reliance Jio is the government company and not BSNL. The government is doing everything to promote Reliance Jio. The Indian Railways has dumped BSNL and has taken connections from Reliance Jio. Who is behind this decision? We shall not allow this injustice. Come on comrades! Let us stand up and fight against the conspiracy of the government to finish off BSNL. The people are the real owners of this great BSNL. They are our masters. Let us go to the people of this country and seek their support to save BSNL. It is the people who finally win. The AUAB has called upon the employees to organise “Rallies With Family Members” on 15-02-2019. BSNLEU calls upon the circle and district unions to take all out steps to make the rallies a historic success. BSNLEU calls upon each and employee not to feel shy of bringing their families to the streets on 15-02-2019.

The Times of India has reported that, the DoT is moving a Cabinet Note for the implementation of VRS in BSNL and MTNL and also to reduce the retirement age of the employees of these companies, from 60 to 58. Both these steps are being taken to reduce the strength of BSNL employees, so as to reduce the expenditure on payment of salaries. In addition to these, 4G spectrum will also be allotted to BSNL and MTNL. The report says that the government is also looking at monetising BSNL and MTNL’s lands, towers and optical fibre. As per the report, the government does not want to close down BSNL and MTNL, as it would cost the government Rs.1.2 lakh crore.
