Consequent to the declaration of the results of the 8th Membership Verification, wherein BSNLEU has secured the highest votes (48,127 votes, 43.44 per cent), the Corporate Management has issued letter, granting the Main Recognised Representative Union status to BSNLEU. NFTE is granted Second Recognised Representative Union status. BTEU BSNL and NUBSNLW (FNTO) are granted Trade Union facilities mentioned in the BSNLRNEU Rules, since both the unions have secured more than 2 per cent votes.
After order was issued for change of designations of the four main cadres, viz., RM, TM, Sr.TOA and TTA, BSNLEU has been continuously demanding that the designations of the remaining cadres of the Non-Executives should also be changed. However, Management took much time to reconstitute the Committee. Now, a meeting of the reconstituted Committee has been scheduled to be held on 13th January, 2017. BSNLEU will take all out efforts to find new designations to the left out Non-Executive cadres.
The DoT has issued letter stating that the Director (Estt.) nominated to the telecom circles will deal and decide the matters like issuing of retirement / struck off order, granting of NoC and permission for accruing movable and immovable properties, in respect of unabsorbed Group C&D employees working in BSNL.
After the introduction of ERP, CHQ is not receiving monthly remittance of quota of Union subscription, from many circles, as per the orders of the Corporate Office. Hence, CHQ took up the issue with the Corporate Office. Based on this, the Corporate Office has issued letter to the CGMs, directing them to ensure separate remittances of quota every month, to the CHQ , as well as to the circle and district unions. Circle and district secretaries are requested to ensure the meticulous implementation of this order.
On 27th March, 2020, the DoP&T has issued a letter stating that, the Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) should be exempted, while drawing up the roster of staff who are required to attend essential services. However, this instruction was not implemented in BSNL, since the DoP&T letter was not endorsed by the BSNL Corporate Office. Hence, BSNLEU wrote to the Corporate Office on 02.04.2020, demanding the BSNL Corporate Office to endorse the DoP&T letter. Accepting BSNLEU’s demand, the Corporate Office has issued letter, endorsing the DoP&T letter. Circle Secretaries are requested to kindly ensure the implementation of the DoP&T instruction.
BSNL Corporate Office has issued letter to all the CGMs, stating that 29th and 30th March, 2018, will be working days for BSNL. This is to achieve the targets and to maximise cash flow. The letter says that compensatory off will be given for these holidays.
Thousands of TSMs, who were regularised after 01.10.2000, were issued with ‘Presidential Orders’, due to the continuous efforts taken by BSNLEU. However, these officials were treated as DoT employees, so far as NEPP is concerned, and were given 1st promotion only on completion of 8 years of service. Citing a court order, BSNLEU demanded that all these officials should be given 1st promotion under NEPP, on completion of 4 years. Management agreed to this. However, the issue is not settled yet, due to non-receipt of the requisite input from circles. Hence, all circle secretaries are requested to take up this issue with their respective CGMs, and arrange to send to necessary inputs to the Corporate Office at the earliest.
