The RLC (Central) conducted a conciliation meeting today, on the demands contained in the strike notice, served for the 3 day strike which took place from 18th February, 2019. Com.P.Abhimanyu, Convenor, AUAB, Com.S. Sivakumar, GS, AIBSNLEA, Com.Suresh Kumar, GS, BSNL MS, Com.Anil Kumar, GS, BSNL ATM and Com.H.P.Singh, GS, BSNL OA, participated in this conciliation. The important arguments placed by the AUAB in the meeting are briefly as follows:-
The government has allotted 4G spectrum to BSNL. But, BSNL could not launch 4G service, due to the cancellation of it’s 4G tender, as per the directive of the government. The AUAB demanded that BSNL should be allowed to launch it’s 4G service immediately.
The DoT has already directed BSNL Management to immediately negotiate the wage settlement of the Non-Executives, sign the agreement and send the same for the approval of the DoT. However, BSNL Management had abruptly discontinued the wage negotiation. BSNL Management should be told to resume the wage negotiations.
Pension revision is already given to the DoT retirees. Whereas, their counterparts in BSNL, are not given the pension revision. The government should immediately implement pension revision to BSNL retirees by delinking it from pay revision of the serving employees.
The AUAB demanded that the Government of India Rule should be implemented in respect of payment pension contribution by BSNL.
The CMD BSNL assured in February, 2019 that BSNL's contribution for the SAB would be increased by 3% before 31.03.2019 and the short fall in BSNL’s 30% contribution would be made good in the subsequent financial year. The Management has gone back from this assurance. The settlement of this demand should not be dragged on, by linking it with the financial condition of the Company. The Management should immediately start contributing it’s full 30% contribution towards the SAB.
After discussion, the RLC directed the Management to discuss and decide the issue of at least Wage Revision of the Non-Executives. Next sitting of the Conciliation will be held at 11:30 hrs on 26.11.2020.
The destructive anti-farmer bill, to serve the interests of big landlords and their corporate friends, was brought in the Rajya Sabha day before yesterday. It was tooth and nail opposed by the members belonging to the opposition parties. When the bill was taken for voting, the government did not have sufficient members from the ruling party and it’s allies, to pass the bill. Hence, when the opposition members demanded a division (voting) on the bill, the same was not accepted by the Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha. Instead, he put the bill for voice voting and announced that the bill was passed. This is nothing but murder of democracy and an attack on the Parliamentary system of this country.

भारतीय संसद पर तानाशाही पूर्ण हमला....
परसों, राज्यसभा में, बड़े जमींदारों और उनके कॉर्पोरेट मित्रों के हित साधने के लिए, विनाशकारी किसान विरोधी बिल लाया गया था। विरोधी दलों के सदस्यों द्वारा इसका पुरजोर तरीके से विरोध किया गया था। जब बिल वोटिंग के लिए प्रस्तुत किया जा रहा था, तब सरकार के पास सत्ताधारी दल और उनके सहयोगियों के, बिल पास करवाने हेतु वांछित सदस्य नही थे। अतः, जब विरोधी दल के सदस्यों ने बिल पर विभाजन (वोटिंग) की मांग की, राज्यसभा के उप सभापति द्वारा इसे मान्य नही किया गया। विपरीत इसके, उन्होंने बिल वॉइस वोटिंग के लिए प्रस्तुत कर दिया और बिल पास होने की घोषणा कर दी। यह और कुछ नही, वरन, लोकतंत्र की हत्या है और देश की संसदीय व्यवस्था पर प्रहार।
As per the call of BSNLEU, National Protest Day is observed in BSNL throughout the country. Lunch hour demonstrations were organised demanding immediate 4G service by BSNL, immediate Revival of BSNL, opposing attacks on the public sector and attacks on workers rights and democratic rights.
With abnormal haste, the Lok Sabha has passed the Labour Law Amendments yesterday. Three Labour Code Bills, have been passed, to snatch away the hard-won rights of the workers. They are :-
(a) Occupational Safety, Health & Working Condition Code.
(b) Code on Industrial Relations.
(c) Code on Social Security.
The above bills will throw more than 74% of the Industrial Workers and 70% of the Industrial Establishments into the “Hire & Fire Regime”. The capitalists and the corporates will hire and fire the workers at their will. Formation of trade unions will become extremely difficult. A virtual ban will be imposed on the workers' right to go on strike.
The working class of this country are left with no option now, but to fight against this Labour Law Amendments.
लोकसभा में, श्रम कानून संशोधन बिल असाधारण जल्दबाजी में स्वीकृत...
श्रम कानून संशोधन बिल, कल लोकसभा द्वारा असाधारण जल्दबाजी में स्वीकृत कर दिया गया। संघर्षों से हासिल किए गए अधिकारों को छिनते हुए , तीन लेबर कोड बिल ( Labour Code Bills) पास कर दिए गए। वें, निम्नानुसार है -
(a) Occupational Safety, Health & Working Condition Code. ( व्यावसायिक सुरक्षा, स्वास्थ्य और कार्य परिस्थिति बाबद)
(b) Code on Industrial Relations. (औद्योगिक संबंधों बाबद)
(c) Code on Social Security. (सामाजिक सुरक्षा बाबद)
उपर्युक्त बिल्स के अनुसार 74% से अधिक औद्योगिक वर्कर्स और 70% औद्योगिक संस्थानों के वर्कर्स “Hire & Fire Regime” (नियोक्ता की मर्जी अनुसार कार्य पर रखने और निकालने की व्यवस्था) के अंतर्गत झोंक दिए जाएंगे। पूंजीपति और कॉर्पोरेट्स अपनी मर्जी अनुसार वर्कर्स को कार्य पर रखेंगे और मर्जी अनुसार निकाल देंगे। ट्रेड यूनियन्स का गठन अत्यंत मुश्किल हो जाएगा। हड़ताल पर जाने के मजदूरों के अधिकार को वास्तविक रूप से प्रतिबंधित कर दिया जाएगा।
अब देश के वर्किंग क्लास के समक्ष श्रम कानून संशोधनों के खिलाफ लड़ने के अलावा अन्य कोई विकल्प शेष नही है।
The CEC meeting of BSNLEU decided to observe 19th September, 2020, as Martyr’s Day. The All India Centre decided that District General Body meetings should be conducted on that day and the decisions of the CEC meeting should be explained to the members. Holding of the district general body meeting is very essential, to take the decisions of the CEC meeting to the grass-root level workers.
Hence, the CHQ calls upon such of those district unions, which have not yet conducted their district general body meetings, to immediately conduct the same and to explain the decisions of the CEC meeting. All the circle unions are requested to ensure that the district general body meetings are conducted in all districts without fail.
जहां जहां डिस्ट्रिक्ट जनरल बॉडी मीटिंग नही हुई है, वहां आयोजित करें....
BSNLEU की CEC मीटिंग में 19th सितंबर, 2020, को शहीद दिवस के रूप में मनाने का निर्णय लिया गया था। ऑल इंडिया सेन्टर ने निर्णय लिया था कि उस दिन डिस्ट्रिक्ट जनरल बॉडी मीटिंग आयोजित कर, CEC मीटिंग में लिए गए निर्णयों से सदस्यों को अवगत कराया जाए। जमीनी स्तर (grass-root level) के वर्कर्स तक CEC मीटिंग में लिए गए निर्णयों की जानकारी पहुंचाने के लिए डिस्ट्रिक्ट जनरल बॉडी मीटिंग आयोजित करना जरूरी है।
अतः, CHQ ऐसी डिस्ट्रिक्ट यूनियन्स, जिसने अभी तक डिस्ट्रिक्ट जनरल बॉडी मीटिंग आयोजित नही की है, से अनुरोध करता है कि वें, CEC के निर्णयों से अवगत कराने के लिए, तत्काल मीटिंग्स आयोजित करें। सभी सर्किल यूनियन्स यह सुनिश्चित करे कि सभी जिलों में, हर हाल में, डिस्ट्रिक्ट जनरल बॉडी मीटिंग आयोजित हों।
