The Ministry of Finance, as well as the Ministry of Labour, have already issued instructions, stating that there should not be any denial of wages to the contract workers, on account of the Lockdown. Once again, the Ministry of Finance has reiterated this, vide it’s letter issued on 20-05-2020. So far as the BSNL Management is concerned, it is unfortunate that, all these instructions are falling on deaf ears. The BSNL Management has not paid wages to the contract workers almost for the past one year. BSNLEU has once again written to the CMD BSNL, demanding implementation of the Ministry of Finance instructions and also payment of wage arrears of the contract workers.
