On 06.12.2019, the SR Branch of the Corporate Office issued a letter with regards to the employees exercising their option to change their union membership. In that letter, a provision had been included stating that, employees could only change their union membership through the ERP. On 09.12.2019, BSNLEU wrote to the BSNL Management, strongly opposing this clause. BSNLEU has also expressed it’s protest for implementing such changes, without consulting the Recognised Unions. These issues were also discussed with the GM(SR), by BSNLEU representatives on 11.12.2019. Consequent to this, the SR Branch has issued letter yesterday, dropping the above mentioned clause. The letter also states that:-
BSNLEU has given it’s consent for both the above two proposals.
Citing the guideline issued by Corporate Office, BSNLEU has written to the Sr.GM(Estt.), demanding that, Disciplinary / Vigilance cases which arose after the due date for upgradation under NEPP, should not affect the promotion of the official. Accepting the demand of BSNLEU, the Corporate Office has issued guideline today to all the CGMs in this respect. It is also mentioned in that letter, that past cases coming under this guideline, should also be reviewed.
The MoU between BSNL and Union Bank of India for taking various bank loans, expired in December last. BSNLEU has been continuously insisting upon the Corporate Office to renew the MoU. Finally, the MoU has been renewed and the same is uploaded.
