Fourth meeting of the Joint Committee on wage revision - Staff Side strongly criticises the negative attitude of the Management Side.

The 4th meeting of the Joint Committee on wage revision of the Non-Executives took place today. Shri H.C. Pant, Chairman of the Joint Committee, presided over the meeting. All the members of the Staff Side were present. Surprisingly, the members of the Management Side started talking in a negative way, right form the beginning of the meeting. Members of the Management Side started telling that the DoT may not accept 15% fitment, and may agree for only 0% fitment or 5% fitment. To this, the entire Staff Side reacted and told that nothing short of 15% fitment would be accepted by them. In the last three meetings, the Staff Side leaders have already emphatically told the Management Side that, the gap between the minimum and maximum of the pay scales of the Non-Executives should be sufficiently long, so as to avoid stagnation to any one of the Non-Executives. However, in today’s meeting, the Management Side members started arguing that the gap between the minimum and the maximum should be kept as short as possible, so that the Management need not unnecessarily spend huge amount towards payment of pension contribution. The entire Staff Side opposed this view. The Staff Side opposed this vehemently and argued that, when the Management is prepared to pay huge amount as pension contribution for the Executives, why should they worry about the amount to be paid only in respect of the Non-Executives. The Staff Side strongly criticised the mindset of the Management Side, and told that they would be compelled to go to the workers and expose the double standards being adopted by the Management Side. Thereafter, Shri H.C. Pant, Chairman of the Joint Committee, intervened and assured that the interests of the Non-Executives would be protected in the wage revision. Further, he directed the GM(SR) to spell-out the proposals of the Management with regards to the new pay scales. The following are the new pay scales proposed in today’s meeting, by the Management Side.

Hindi translation of "VRS is the road map for privatisation of BSNL."

BSNL के निजीकरण का रोडमैप (योजना) है VRS...
VRS बीएसएनएल के वित्तीय संकट के लिए संजीवनी (रामबाण दवा) नही है। VRS को दो बार MTNL में लागू किया जा चूका है। इसके बावजूद MTNL आकंठ संकट में है। VRS, MTNL को संकट से उबारने के लिए कारगर क्यों साबित नही हुआ ? क्या सरकार इसका जवाब दे सकती है ? सरकार की VRS लागू करने के पीछे केवल कर्मचारियों की संख्या कम करने की मंशा है जिससे कि भविष्य में BSNL का निजीकरण करना आकर्षक प्रतीत हो। VRS का क्रियान्वयन और कुछ नही, वरन, BSNL के निजीकरण हेतु रोडमैप है। VRS का समर्थन कर रहे युवा कर्मचारियों को यह समझना चाहिए।

Bank employees going on two day strike against merger of public sector banks..

The Bank employees are going on a two day strike on 31st January and 01st February, 2020, under the banner of the UFBU. This strike is taking place against the mega mergers of public sector banks, reducing their numbers from 27 to 12 and also demanding wage settlement which has become due on 01st November, 2017. Big corporates are taking huge loans and cheat the public sector banks, without making payments. Instead of taking stringent actions, government is writing them off as bad loans. Rs.5.8 lakh crore bad debts have been written off in the recent past. These bad debts are the reason for the declining health of the public sector banks. Instead of recovering the bad loans, the government is resorting to the merger of public sector banks, which is widely being conceived as the step towards privatisation of the public sector banks. BSNLEU expresses it support and solidarity to the two day strike of bank employees.

वेज रिवीजन चर्चा: प्रबंधन पक्ष का नकारात्मक रवैया*

जॉइंट कमिटी ऑन वेज रिवीजन ऑफ द नॉन एग्जीक्यूटिव्ज की चतुर्थ मीटिंग आज सम्पन्न हुई। आश्चर्यजनक रूप से मैनेजमेंट साइड ने मीटिंग की शुरुआत से ही नकारात्मक तरीके से बातचीत शुरू की। उन्होंने कहना शुरू कर दिया कि DoT शायद 15% फिटमेंट को न स्वीकारे और संभवतः 0% या 5% फिटमेंट पर सहमत हो। इस पर स्टाफ साइड ने स्पष्ट रूप से प्रतिक्रिया व्यक्त करते हुए कहा कि 15% फिटमेंट से कम हमें किसी भी सूरत में स्वीकार नही होगा। विगत तीन मीटिंग्स में स्टाफ साइड के लीडर्स ने मैनेजमेंट साइड को स्पष्ट रूप से बता दिया है कि किसी भी नॉन एग्जीक्यूटिव कर्मी के प्रकरण में स्टेग्नेशन की स्थिति निर्मित न  हो इस हेतु नॉन एग्जीक्यूटिव के पे स्केल के न्यूनतम और अधिकतम में माकूल अंतर होना चाहिए। इसके बावजूद, आज की मीटिंग में मैनेजमेंट साइड ने यह तर्क दिया कि न्यूनतम और अधिकतम में जितना संभव हो सके अंतर कम से कम रखा जाना चाहिए जिससे कि मैनेजमेंट को अनावश्यक रूप से पेंशन कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन के भुगतान में अधिक खर्च न करना पड़े। इसका स्टाफ साइड ने विरोध किया। पुरजोर विरोध करते हुए स्टाफ साइड ने तर्क प्रस्तुत किया कि जब मैनेजमेंट एग्जीक्यूटिव के लिए पेंशन कॉन्ट्रिब्यूशन हेतु बड़ी राशि के भुगतान हेतु तैयार है तो उन्हें केवल नॉन एग्जीक्यूटिव के भुगतान की ही चिंता क्यों है। स्टाफ साइड ने मैनेजमेंट की मानसिकता की निंदा की और कहा कि वे इस बात को कर्मचारियों के समक्ष रखेंगे और मैनेजमेंट साइड द्वारा अपनाए जा रहे दोहरे मापदंड को एक्सपोज़ करेंगे। इसके बाद जॉइंट कमिटी के चेयरमैन श्री एच सी पंत ने हस्तक्षेप कर आश्वस्त किया कि वेज रिवीजन में नॉन एग्जीक्यूटिव के हितों का ध्यान रखा जाएगा। तत्पश्चात उन्होंने GM (SR) को नए पे स्केल से सम्बंधित मैनेजमेंट के प्रस्तावों को प्रस्तुत करने के निर्देश दिए। आज की मीटिंग में मैनेजमेंट साइड द्वारा प्रस्तावित नए पे स्केल्स निम्नानुसार है।
