The CHQ of BSNLEU, wishes a very Happy New Year 2023 to all. Let the year 2023 bring everlasting joy, peace and good health in the lives of all.
The CHQ of BSNLEU called on the District Unions to organise District General Body meetings on 29.12.2022 and to explain to the employees about the developments related to the Wage Negotiations. This call has been implemented in many circles. The CHQ heartily congratulates all the circle and district unions which have observed this programme.
The MoUs signed by BSNL, with the Union Bank of India and Canara bank, for the purpose of availing various loans by BSNL employees, expired long back. Since then, BSNLEU has been taking continuous efforts to get the MoUs renewed. However, both the Union Bank of India and the Canara bank were not interested in signing the MoU with BSNL. This might be due to the fact that, in the past, the EMI amount deducted from the salaries of the employees, was not promptly remitted to the banks, by the BSNL Management. Hence, both the Union Bank of India and the Canara bank were reluctant to sign any MoU with BSNL. Under these circumstances, BSNLEU wrote to the CMD BSNL soliciting his personal intervention, for taking up the issue with the top Management of the Union Bank of India and the Canara bank. Accordingly the CMD BSNL has made the intervention. Consequent to this, the MoU between BSNL and the Union Bank of India, has been renewed today the 29-12-2022. The validity of this MoU will be for one year.
बीएसएनएल और यूनियन बैंक ऑफ इंडिया के बीच समझौता ज्ञापन पर हस्ताक्षर किए गए ।
बीएसएनएल कर्मचारियों द्वारा विभिन्न ऋणों का लाभ उठाने के उद्देश्य से बीएसएनएल द्वारा यूनियन बैंक ऑफ इंडिया और केनरा बैंक के साथ हस्ताक्षरित समझौता ज्ञापन बहुत पहले समाप्त हो गए थे। तब से BSNLEU एमओयू को नवीनीकृत करने के लिए निरंतर प्रयास कर रहा है। हालांकि, यूनियन बैंक ऑफ इंडिया और केनरा बैंक दोनों ने बीएसएनएल के साथ समझौता ज्ञापन पर हस्ताक्षर करने में दिलचस्पी नहीं दिखाई। यह इस तथ्य के कारण हो सकता है कि अतीत में बीएसएनएल प्रबंधन द्वारा कर्मचारियों के वेतन से काटी गई ईएमआई की राशि बैंकों को तुरंत नहीं भेजी गई थी। इसलिए, यूनियन बैंक ऑफ इंडिया और केनरा बैंक दोनों बीएसएनएल के साथ किसी भी समझौता ज्ञापन पर हस्ताक्षर करने के लिए अनिच्छुक थे। इन परिस्थितियों में, यूनियन बैंक ऑफ इंडिया और केनरा बैंक के शीर्ष प्रबंधन के साथ इस मुद्दे को उठाने के लिए BSNLEU ने सीएमडी, बीएसएनएल को उनके व्यक्तिगत हस्तक्षेप की मांग करते हुए पत्र लिखा। तदनुसार सीएमडी बीएसएनएल ने हस्तक्षेप किया है । इसके फलस्वरूप बीएसएनएल और यूनियन बैंक ऑफ इंडिया के बीच हुए एमओयू का आज दिनांक 29-12-2022 को नवीनीकरण किया गया है। इस एमओयू की वैधता एक साल के लिए होगी।

Shri Phunchok Dorjey, the General Manager of Ludhiana, who was indulging in sexual harassment of women employees, has finally been shunted out of Ludhiana. He is transferred and is posted in the Punjab CGM Office at Chandigarh. All are aware that, BSNLEU has strongly been demanding action against Shri Phunchok Dorjey and has organised many agitational programmes. It is not the question of action against a particular General Manager, but it is the issue of safeguarding the dignity of working women in BSNL. BSNLEU fought to safeguard the dignity of women employees. But, it is a matter of regret that, leaders of some organisations actively supported Shri Phunchok Dorjey. It is obvious that the Corporate Management hesitated to take appropriate action on Shri Phunchok Dorjey, due to the reasons best known to them. Nevertheless, BSNLEU welcomes this belated action and thanks the Management for the same.
Media has reported that, 6 senior officers of BSNL are to be dismissed under FR 56 (J). The officers to be sacked include those from the Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa and Haryana circles, namely Gopi Chand Tolwani, Rajesh Bansal, Pradip Kumar Saha, Asheesh Pathak, Chandragupta Bidika and Suresh Kumar. The officers forced to leave, have allegedly dubious reputations, with charges of corruption and non-performance surfaced against them in the past. In 2014, Tolwani, the then deputy director general of BSNL was caught red-handed by Lokayukta police in Bhopal for accepting a bribe. In another case, in 2015, Bansal was arrested from his house in Patiala by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) while he was working as a general manager at BSNL. Similarly, in 2017, Gupta, working as an additional general manager of Microwave Project at Bhubaneswar was caught while demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs1 lakh from a contractor.
The BSNL Management is putting in place a Web Portal for tracking the settlement of various claims of the retired employees. The Web address of this Portal is https://pensioners.bsnl.co.in/portal/ . This Portal is likely to come into usage shortly.
The BSNL Management has arbitrarily issued the Sports Compendium 2022. No discussion is held with the Recognised Unions. It was not discussed in the Sports Board meeting also. Already there is a Career Progression Policy introduced in 2008. Eligible officials have not been given promotion in accordance with the 2008 Policy. All of a sudden, the Management has introduced another Policy which has a lot of lapses. Hence, BSNLEU has written letter to the CMD BSNL, demanding to keep the Compendium 2022 pending and to hold discussion with the Recognised Unions for the finalisation of the new Policy.
