    BSNLEU strongly condemns the decision of the Narendra Modi government to form a Subsidiary Tower Company.

    The Union Cabinet meeting, presided over by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has decided today to form a Subsidiary Tower Company. It means, the nearly 70,000 mobile towers of BSNL will be taken away, and will be handed over to the Subsidiary Tower Company. BSNLEU strongly condemns this decision. This is nothing, but a strategy to slowly kill BSNL. It may be remembered that the entire Non-Executives and Executives went on a one day strike on 15.12.2016, opposing the formation of the Subsidiary Tower Company. Inspite of this stiff opposition, the Modi government has decided to form the Subsidiary Tower Company. BSNLEU calls upon the entire unions and associations of BSNL to come forward and oppose this move of the government

    BSNL to add 40,000 BTSs in the next two years.

    CMD BSNL has told the media that BSNL will spend Rs.6,000 crore in the next two years, for adding 40,000 BTSs. BSNL has started the tendering process for this, and Nokia and ZTE have emerged as the L1 and L2 bidders respectively, said the CMD BSNL. At present BSNL is having 1,30,000 BTSs and after this expansion, the number will increase to 1,70,000.

    Redesignation of left out Non-Executives - Circle and District secretaries to note please.

    The next meeting of the Joint Committee for Change of Designations of the left out Non-Executives will be held on 26.09.2017. In that meeting, discussion will take place with regards to the change of designation of the following 15 cadres. Most of these cadres belong to Civil Wing and Telecom Factories. However, mainstream cadres of Lineman and Telegraphman are also there. All these cadres are in the NE-5 pay scale. Already Telecom Technician designation is given to the Telecom Mechanic cadre, which is in NE-6 pay scale. Similarly, Assistant Telecom Technician designation is already given to the RM and Group ‘D’ cadres. Under such circumstances, what can be the new designation of the Lineman, Telegraphman and other cadres which are in NE-5 pay scale. If suggestions are given in this regard, it will be helpful to the CHQ. Circle and district secretaries and other active comrades are requested to send their views. The 15 cadres are as follows:- 

    Lineman, Wireman (Civil Wing / Electrical), Telegraphman, Carpenter, Mason, Plumber, Painter, A/C Mechanic, Sewerman, Welder, Technician (TF), Pump Operator, Lift Operator, A/C Operator and Operator (E&M).

    Once again it is proved that, BSNLEU is the champion of SC/ST employees.

    It is once again proved beyond doubt that, BSNLEU is the champion of defending the rights of the SC/ST employees. DoP&T orders on SC/ST reservation are not fully implemented in BSNL. BSNLEU is continuously fighting for the past several years, for the implementation of DoP&Torders. As a result of BSNLEU's efforts, orders were issued, first on 29.12.2014 , and once again on 28.07.2016, reducing the qualifying standards of SC/ST employees, for the departmental examinations. However, BSNLEU continued to press for the total implementation of the DoP&T orders on SC/ST reservation. In the 35th National Council meeting held on 11-05-2017, BSNLEU demanded implementation of DoT letter no 22-5/91-NCG dated 30-11-1992. This DoT letter is almost equivalent to the DoP&T orders on SC/ST reservation. Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU, handed over a copy of that DoT letter to the Chairperson of the National Council. On reading the letter, the Chairperson immediately directed the Management Side to consider implementation of the DoT order. After the 35th National Council meeting, BSNLEU has twice written to the Management, reminding to implement the decision of the National Council. As a result of these persuasions of BSNLEU, the Corporate Management issued order today, vide letter no. 9-2/2016-Rectt dated 28-08-2017, reducing the qualifying marks of SC employees to 20% and that of ST employees to 15%, as envisaged in the DoT letter no 22-5/91-NCG dated 30-11-1992. These reduced qualifying marks are applicable from 28-07-2016. BSNLEU congratulates the SC/ST employees. BSNLEU also heartily thanks the Management for issuing the letter.

    Problem of downgradation of the Sr.TOAs from 7100 pay scale to 6550 pay scale, at the time of opting for NEPP - Positive development in today's discussion.

    One more round of discussion took place today, between the Management and BSNLEU, on the above subject. Com. P.Abhimanyu, GS and com. Gakul Bora, Treasurer, represented BSNLEU. Ms. Madhu Arora,PGM (Estt.) and shri Sheo Shankar Prasad, DGM(Estt.) participated from the Management Side. The union representatives argued that the unfair condition stipulated in the NEPP that, the Sr.TOAs should forego their OTBP promotion, got after 01-10-2000, in order to switch over to NEPP, should be withdrawn. They also demanded that the resultant loss inflicted on the Sr. TOAs should also be mitigated. The Management Side took a positive stand on the issue, and assured to take it up with the Director (HR) for necessary solution.

    Upgradation of pay scale of TTA, w.e.f. 01.10.2000, should not be treated as 1st promotion under NEPP- BSNLEU demands.

    The upgradation of pay scale of TTA cadre was implemented from 01.10.2000. Later on, when the agreement on NEPP was signed, it was agreed between BSNLEU and the Management that all upgradations given after 01.10.2000, were to be treated as 1st promotion under NEPP. But when the order on NEPP was issued, the Management made a twisting. It was written in NEPP that all upgradations made on or after 01.10.2000, are to be treated as 1st promotion under NEPP. As a result of this, the TTAs were denied promotion under NEPP, on 01.10.2004. This issue was raised by BSNLEU, in today’s discussed by with the Management. Union demanded that the pay scale upgradation of TTAs, given w.e.f. 01.10.2000, should not be treated as 1st promotion under NEPP. On this issue also, the Management took a positive stand and agreed to examine the demand of the union.

    BSNLEU's call for observing this year's May Day.

    CHQ calls upon the circle and district unions to observe this year's May Day in a befitting manner, by glorifying the struggle for 8 hours' work, as well as the sacrifices of the May Day martyrs. Together with this, we have to highlight certain important issues confronted by us. 

    The Modi government and it's Niti Aayog are launching deadly attacks to destroy the Public Sector, including BSNL, through disinvestment/strategic sale and privatisation. The hard won rights of the Indian working class, are being taken away through Labour Law amendments, by the BJP led governments at the Centre, as well as in various states. Unity of the working class and united struggles are being weakened, by communal forces, in the name of religion.Those who criticise the government are branded as 'Desh Drohis'. Freedom of expression is being trampled. 

    Under these circumstances, CHQ calls upon our circle and district unions to observe this year's May Day, by flag hoisting and holding gate meetings. The following issues are to be highlighted in the gate meetings:- 

    1. No disinvestment/ strategic sale/ privatisation of PSUs,including BSNL. No formation of Subsidiary Tower Company in BSNL.

     

    1. Withdraw amendments to the Labour Laws. Do not curtail the hard won trade union rights of the working class.
    1. Stop attacks on freedom of expression. Stop attacks on the secular fabric of the country.

     

    All circle and district unions are requested to observe the programme massively and to send reports and photos to the CHQ.

     

     

    A new achievement by BSNL - Added 29.5 lakh mobile customers in March, 2017.

    BSNL has once again did the wonder. It has added 29,52,251 new mobile customers in the month of March, 2017. This may be the highest number of mobile connections given by BSNL in any month. It is very important to note that BSNL has made this achievement, in the face of cut-throat competition from Reliance Jio. Gujarat has come first, by adding 2,82,982 new mobile customers. UP (East) circle has come second, by adding 2,54,542 new mobile customers. BSNLEU heartily congratulates the entire Non-Executives and Executives of BSNL, as well as the Management, for making this achievement

    TRAI orders Reliance Jio to withdraw it’s “Summer Surprise Plan”.

    Finally the TRAI has acted on the irregularities being committed by Reliance Jio Infocomm. The TRAI has instructed the Reliance Jio to withdraw it’s “Summer Surprise Plan”.

    GM ETR gave the consent to do the needful at the earliest possible.

    Contractual staff must get equal ages as regular staff: Supreme Court.

    Bringing relief to lakhs of contractual government employees, the Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that temporary workers are entitled to wages at par with permanent employees. Basing the judgement on the principle of ‘equal pay for equal work’, the Court said that rule constitutes a clear and unambiguous right vested in every employee – whether regular or temporary.

    No VRS in BSNL - Staff strength of the Company will get reduced by 7% in 2017-18, due to retirements.

    BSNL will reduce its workforce by nearly 7% in 2017-18, from the employee-base of 2,09,996 in 2016-17. BSNL expects total employees as on April 30, 2017, to be 1,96,162, the state-driven telco said in response to an application filed under the Right to Information Act 2005. The VRS (voluntary retirement scheme) proposal aimed at bringing down headcount is however on hold, according to Anupam Shrivastava, CMD BSNL.
