Japan is not joining the US plan to boycott Chinese Telecom Companies.

The United States is pressing it’s allies hard to eliminate Huawei from next generation 5G networks. However, Japan, a strong ally of the United States, has informed that, it is not boycotting the Chinese Telecom Companies including the Huawei. Japan has also told the US that, it would take it’s own steps, in case if there is any security threat. 

 

It is very important to note that the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, had recently met the Japanese Foreign Minister in Tokyo and insisted that, Japan should boycott the Chinese Companies.

Com.George Mavrikos, General Secretary, WFTU, addressed the Indian Trade union leaders..

The WFTU has completed 75 years of it’s militant existence. On this occasion, Com.George Mavrikos, General Secretary, WFTU, addressed the Trade Union leaders of India yesterday. He spoke for 50 minutes and dealt with many important issues. The following are the important points.

 

  • I recognise the role of Indian trade unions and their class oriented movement. Indian trade unions are strong, politically and ideologically.

 

  • I appreciate the Indian trade unions for organising militant struggles against the Neo-Liberal Policies.

 

  • 250 million workers (25 crore) participated in the General Strike held in India in January, 2020. The recent strikes that have taken place in the Defence, Coal and Petroleum sectors are praiseworthy.

 

  • The demands of the strike being organised by Indian trade unions on 26th November, 2020, are very crucial. WFTU is with you in this struggle. We will organise solidary action throughout the world, in favour of this strike.

 

  • The struggles taking place in India, strengthen the fight against exploitation taking place in other countries also.

 

  • WFTU is having 105 million (10.5 crore) membership of workers in 130 countries. It is having 11 Trade Union Internationals (TUIs) representing workers of different sectors.

 

  • Biggest membership of WFTU family is from India. Out of the total 7 Secretariat Members of the WFTU, two are from India.

 

  • The WFTU is fighting against the multinational corporates, which are exploiting the workers throughout the world . The WFTU is also raising it’s voice against the imperialist interventions in Korea, Cuba, Latin American Countries, the Middle-East, etc.

 

  • More than 38 million (3.8 crore) people are affected by the Corona Virus Disease, throughout the world. More than one million (10 lakh) people have already died. Most of the people who have died are the poor. This is the ugly face of capitalism. Even in death, capitalism is unfair.

 

  • While the poor and workers are suffering in this Covid-19 pandemic situation, the wealth of the corporates has increased by 27%.

 

  • More funds should be allotted to strengthen the Public Health Services. To do this, the military expenditure should be minimised.

 

  • WFTU demands that, a fast and safe vaccine for COVID-19 should be made available free of cost to all the people.

 

  • Donald Trump acts in front of the camera, but the poor people in the United States are suffering.

 

  • At the same time, Cuba, which is a small socialist country, has helped more than 45 countries, by sending their doctors and medicines.

 

  • Socialism gives humanity to the world, while imperialism only gives cruelty.     

 

  • Next Congress of the WFTU, which will be the 18th Congress, will be held in Vietnam in 2021.

 

  • WFTU is a poor  union, but rich in ideology. WFTU’s financial position is bad. It needs financial help from workers. We should strengthen our trade unions and we should strengthen the WFTU.

नेशनल कौंसिल की मीटिंग स्थगित क्यों की गई ? दुर्भावनापूर्ण प्रचार का जवाब.

07.10.2020 को ऑनलाईन होने वाली नेशनल कौंसिल की 39वीं मीटिंग BSNL मैनेजमेंट द्वारा निर्मित अनावश्यक समस्या की वजह से नही हो पाई। बहरहाल, कुछ व्यक्तियों द्वारा इसका भी  BSNLEU पर हमला करने के लिए उपयोग किया जा रहा है। BSNLEU की छवि खराब करने के लिए व्हाट्सएप्प मैसेजेस भेजे जा रहे हैं। उनके द्वारा किए जाए रहे दुष्प्रचार और BSNLEU द्वारा उसका प्रत्युत्तर निम्नानुसार है।


(1) दुष्प्रचार:- नेशनल कौंसिल की मीटिंग केवल महासचिव, BSNLEU की वजह से नही हो पाई। फलस्वरूप कर्मचारियों की ज्वलंत समस्याओं पर चर्चा नही हो सकी। 

प्रत्युत्तर:- इस COVID-19 महामारी की स्थिति के दौरान अन्य कोई, नेशनल कौंसिल मीटिंग करने बाबद सोच भी नही सकता, यह केवल BSNLEU ही थी जिसने नेशनल कौंसिल मीटिंग ऑनलाइन किए जाने की मांग की। इस संबंध में  पत्र क्रमांक BSNLEU/204(NC) dated 03.08.2020 द्वारा BSNLEU ने डायरेक्टर (HR) को लिखा। यह केवल BSNLEU के महासचिव ही थे, जो निरंतर रूप से   डायरेक्टर (HR) और  Sr.GM(SR) से चर्चारत रहे और उन्हें ऑनलाइन नेशनल कौंसिल मीटिंग कराने हेतु सहमत कराया। यह सारे प्रयास BSNLEU द्वारा कर्मचारियों के मुद्दों पर चर्चा करने हेतु ही किए गए। अतः, BSNLEU को आरोपित करने के प्रयासों को और कुछ नही, केवल  हास्यास्पद और अवसरवादिता ही कहा जा सकता है। 

(2) दुष्प्रचार:- कॉम पी अभिमन्यु, महासचिव, BSNLEU को एक विशेष एसोसिएशन के लीडर नेशनल कौंसिल मेंबर के रूप में स्वीकार्य नही है। 

प्रत्युत्तर:- यह पूर्णतः दुर्भावनापूर्ण प्रचार है।BSNLEU द्वारा मैनेजमेंट को लिख कर दिया गया है कि वह नेशनल कौंसिल में किसी के भी नॉमिनेशन का विरोध नही कर रही है।  BSNLEU की मांग केवल यह है कि जब  NFTE को एक नॉन मेंबर को नेशनल कौंसिल में नॉमिनेशन का अधिकार दिया गया है, तो यह  अधिकार BSNLEU को भी दिया जाना चाहिए। अन्यथा यह पक्षपात होगा, जिसे कदापि स्वीकार नहीं किया जा सकता है।

Why National Council meeting is postponed – Reply to mischievous propaganda.

The 39th meeting of the National Council, to be held online on 07.10.2020, could not be conducted, because of the unwanted problem created by the BSNL Management. However, this is being utilised by some people to attack BSNLEU. WhatsApp messages are being sent to tarnish the image of BSNLEU. The propaganda being made by them and BSNLEU’s reply are as follows:-

 

(1)    Propaganda:- It is only of the General Secretary, BSNLEU, the National Council meeting could not be held. As a result, burning problems of the employees could not be discussed.

 

Reply:- During this COVID-19 pandemic situation, when others did not even think about the holding of the National Council meeting, it was BSNLEU, which demanded that the National Council meeting should be held online. Vide letter number BSNLEU/204(NC) dated 03.08.2020, BSNLEU wrote to the Director (HR) in this regard. It was only the General Secretary, BSNLEU, who continuously talked to the Director (HR) and the Sr.GM(SR)and made them to agree for holding the NC meeting online. All these efforts are taken by BSNLEU, only to make the Management to discuss the staff issues. Hence, blaming BSNLEU is nothing but, ridiculous and opportunistic. 

 

(2)   Propaganda:- Com.P.Abhimanyu, General Secretary, BSNLEU could not accept the leader of one particular Association, as a member of the National Council.

 

Reply:- This is a totally mischievous propaganda. BSNLEU has given in writing to the Management that, it is not opposing anybody’s nomination to the National Council. What BSNLEU’s demands is, when NFTE is given the right to nominate a non-member to the National Council, the same right should be given to BSNLEU also. Otherwise, it will be a discrimination, which cannot be accepted.
