The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) is the international organisation of the working class. The WFTU spearheads the struggles at the international level, against the exploitations on the working class and to protect their rights.

This is a very important duty of BSNLEU and all circle and district unions of BSNLEU are requested to pay their full attention in collecting this donation and sending it to the CHQ. With the view to provide immediate financial help to the WFTU, the All India Centre has also decided to send Rs.30,000/- to the WFTU.

The inputs so obtained from the Management and the government, will equip BSNLEU to effectively take up the issues with the Management and the government. In line with this decision of the CEC, the All India Centre meeting of BSNLEU, held online yesterday, has constituted the All India level RTI Cell of BSNLEU, with the following comrades as members: -

The BSNL Working Women’s Coordination Committee (BSNL WWCC) organised lunch hour demonstrations throughout the country today and condemned the gang rape and murder of a Dalit girl in Hathras.

Today's demonstrators demanded all actions to stop the brutalities being committed on women.
Shri Ram Vilas Paswan, one of the prominent Dalit leaders, and former Union minister, has passed away yesterday. He was 74 years old and had recently undergone a heart surgery. Shri Ram Vilas Paswan had been a minister in almost all the Central Governments formed since 1989 and had served under six Prime ministers, starting with the cabinet of Shri V.P. Singh. Shri Ram Vilas Paswan had played a prominent role in the implementation of the Mandal Commission's recommendations. He was the Minister of Communications, at the time of formation of BSNL.

The wealth of the world billionaires has increased by 27.5% within 3 months and that too, during the height of the Covid-19 crisis, from April to July 2020. As per the report of The Guardian, the wealth of the billionaires reached a new high of $10.2 trillion within these three months period. It was during this period that millions of people around the world, lost their jobs and were pushed to extreme poverty. We have to understand that these are the results of policies being pursued by the capitalist’s governments, including India.

हाथरस में एक दलित लड़की का सामूहिक बलात्कार और नृशंस हत्या - BSNLWWCC का 09.10.2020 को भोजन अवकाश में प्रदर्शन का आव्हान....
हाथरस में एक दलित लड़की के सामूहिक बलात्कार और नृशंस हत्या से पूरा देश स्तब्ध है। सामूहिक बलात्कार के पश्चात उसकी रीढ़ की हड्डी तोड़ कर, जुबान काट कर, हत्या कर दी गई। यह हूबहू, कुछ वर्ष पूर्व राष्ट्रीय राजधानी में हुए निर्भया के सामूहिक बलात्कार और नृशंस हत्याकांड की पुनरावृत्ति है।
यह एक ऐसा बर्बर कृत्य है, जिसकी भर्त्सना हर शख्स द्वारा किए जाना जरूरी है। इस तरह की बर्बरतापूर्ण घटनाएं अब और घटित नही होना चाहिए। गुनाहगारों को तत्परता के साथ दंडित किया जाना चाहिए। सारे सबूतों को नष्ट करने और गवाहों को चुप कराने हेतु किए जा रहे प्रयासों को रोका जाना चाहिए। इन मांगों को उठाते हुए BSNL वर्किंग वुमन्स कोआर्डिनेशन कमिटी (BSNLWWCC) ने 09.10.2020 को भोजन अवकाश में विरोध प्रदर्शन आयोजित करने का आव्हान किया है। CHQ, BSNLEU की सभी सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट यूनियन्स से इस प्रदर्शन को प्रभावी तरीके से आयोजित करने का आव्हान करता है। BSNLWWCC जहां अस्तित्व में नही है, वहां भी BSNLEU की सर्किल और डिस्ट्रिक्ट यूनियन्स द्वारा इस प्रदर्शन को जोरदार तरीके से आयोजित किया जाए। बड़ी संख्या में, अन्य यूनियन्स व एसोसिएशन्स की महिला कर्मियों को भी इस कार्यक्रम हेतु संगठित किया जाए।
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General of the World Health Organisation (WHO), has said that a safe and effective vaccine against the Novel Coronavirus disease may be ready by the year end. He has said that, nine experimental vaccines are in the pipeline of the WHO-led COVAX global vaccine facility. The WHO Director General also called for solidarity and political commitments by all leaders to ensure equal distribution of vaccines, when they become available.
The entire nation has been shocked at the gang rape and brutal murder of a Dalit girl in Hathras. A gang has raped her, after which she had been killed by breaking her spine and cutting off her tongue. This is an exact repetition of the gang-rape and brutal murder of Nirbaya, which had taken place in the National Capital a few years ago.
It is a barbarous act which needs to be condemned by one and all. Such barbarities should not happen hereafter. The culprits should be promptly punished. All attempts being made to destroy the evidences and to silence the witnesses, should stop. Raising these demands, the BSNL Working Womens' Coordination Committee (BSNLWWCC) has called upon to organise lunch hour protest demonstrations on 09.10.2020. CHQ calls upon all the circle and district unions to effectively organise these demonstrations. Sizable number of the women employees should be mobilised in this programme.
In tune with the steps being taken by the Modi government to demolish the public sector, the Uttar Pradesh government had also decided to privatise the distribution of electricity. However, the 15 lakh electricity workers of Uttar Pradesh state are determined to stop this privatisation. They started an indefinite strike against this privatisation. On the second day of the strike itself, the Yogi Adityanath government is forced to withdraw it’s plan to privatise the electricity service. The 15 lakh electricity workers of Uttar Pradesh have shown the way to fight against privatisation of the public sector. This is a historic victory. BSNLEU heartily congratulates the Uttar Pradesh electricity workers.
All the 8 Staff Side members of BSNLEU have boycotted today’s National Council meeting, protesting against the “dirty game” being played by the BSNL Management in the matter of nominating Staff Side members. From the beginning of the formation of the National Council, non-members were permitted to be nominated to the Staff Side, by the Recognised Union. However, in between, the Management took a stand that the Recognised Unions can nominate only their paid members to the Staff Side of the National Council.
When BSNLEU nominated Com.Suresh Kumar, GS, BSNL MS, to the National Council, the Management rejected that nomination, stating that Com.Suresh Kumar was not a paid member of BSNLEU. However, a few days back, NFTE nominated a non-member to the National Council and this has been accepted by the Management. Com.P.Abhimanyu, General Secretary, spoke to the Sr.GM(SR) and demanded that, BSNLEU should also be allowed to nominate non-members to the National Council. However, it was not accepted. The Management is telling blatant lies to justify it’s stand. As a result of this, BSNLEU has boycotted today’s National Council meeting.
BSNLEU wishes to make it’s stand very clear. BSNLEU does not oppose the nomination of any individual to the National Council. BSNLEU only demands that, it should also be permitted to nominate non-members to the National Council.
मैनेजमेंट का गंदा खेल - BSNLEU ने नेशनल कौंसिल मीटिंग का बहिष्कार किया..
BSNLEU के सभी 8 स्टाफ साइड मेंबर्स ने, स्टाफ साइड मेंबर्स के नामांकन के संबंध में मैनेजमेंट द्वारा खेले जा रहे "गंदे खेल" का विरोध करते हुए, आज की नेशनल कौंसिल मीटिंग का बहिष्कार किया। नेशनल कौंसिल के गठन के समय से ही मान्यता प्राप्त यूनियन को, नॉन मेंबर्स को स्टाफ साइड हेतु नॉमिनेट करने की अनुमति प्राप्त थी। किन्तु, इसी बीच, मैनेजमेंट ने तय किया कि, मान्यता प्राप्त यूनियन, नेशनल कौंसिल में स्टाफ साइड के लिए केवल अपने पेड मेंबर्स को ही नॉमिनेट कर सकती है।
जब BSNLEU ने कॉम सुरेश कुमार ,GS, BSNL MS, को नेशनल कौंसिल हेतु नॉमिनेट किया, तब मैनेजमेंट ने उनके नामांकन को यह कहते हुए निरस्त कर दिया कि कॉम सुरेश कुमार BSNLEU के पेड मेंबर नही है। बहरहाल, अभी कुछ दिनों पूर्व, NFTE ने नेशनल कौंसिल हेतु नॉन मेंबर को नॉमिनेट किया और मैनेजमेंट द्वारा इसे स्वीकार कर लिया गया है। कॉम पी अभिमन्यु, महासचिव ने Sr.GM(SR) से बात कर मांग की, कि BSNLEU को भी नेशनल कौंसिल में नॉन मेंबर को नॉमिनेट करने की अनुमति दी जाए। किन्तु, इसे मान्य नही किया गया। मैनेजमेंट द्वारा अपने दृष्टिकोण (stand) के औचित्य को साबित करने के लिए सफेद झूठ बोला जा रहा है। परिणामस्वरूप, BSNLEU ने आज की नेशनल कौंसिल मीटिंग का बहिष्कार कर दिया है।
BSNLEU अपना स्पष्ट मत प्रस्तुत करना चाहेगी। BSNLEU, नेशनल कौंसिल में किसी भी व्यक्ति के नॉमिनेशन के विरोध में नही है। BSNLEU केवल यह मांग करती है कि उसे भी नेशनल कौंसिल में नॉन मेंबर को नॉमिनेट करने की अनुमति दी जानी चाहिए।
