  •  1-10-2014 Thanks to all the comrades who participated 2 hours Walk out to obey the call of trade unions.. Strike struggle is to impress upon the management that workers are in somber mood as even denial of some Bonus on the Festive Occasion.. It is upto the workers to decide what amount of trade unionism that they need to realise their demands.. Leaders can easily realise the genuineness of the demands and able to gauge the mood of management by their frequent interaction and experience. When we fail to impress upon employees about the genuineness of demands and fail to make them to feel that strike is the only option to express their anger to seek justice, then the movement gets its retardation. The indifference of workers to their own demands is more dangerous than the indifference of any management

  • 30-9-14 For the Kind attention of Our leaders in SSA: Inform us if any Compulsory retirement Case in any cadre Executive or Non Executive.. If any information about their Pension settlement.. This information would help our CHQ to prepare a note to settle CR cases properly and if possible to remove the draconian absolute right of management to retire any employee at 55


    Kindly inform us what are the new duties and jobs that our traditional TTA(old Technician), SrTOA, TM (Old LM) cadres are presently doing... what are the new jobs assigned after formation of BSNL in these 14 years..

  • 13-7-14 For PH Employees minimum Transport allowance rate is revised to Rs 1000. Thanks to CHQ for settling the case thro National council. But BSNL is kind enough only to 50 %. Our PH employees are discriminated comparing rest of CG PH Employees. As per DOE the minimum rate should be Rs 2000 (1000+ DA 1000). Our increased minimum is also only from prospective date.. This one is another discrimination.. BSNL should not be so frugal in social nature of issues like this.. The added expenditure because of this new order may be just 2 to 2.5 lakhs per month.. if the same is given  2000 minimum  as per DOE order then, the expenditure may not be more than 4  to 5 lakhs.  As BSNL is not linking DA factor, it would be only fixed till the next revision. Comparing BSNL, it seems that Department of Expenditure is more humane

  •  2-7-14  Stoppage of Recovery order issued by CO for those employees given option to switch over to IDA pay scales from the date of promotion after 1-10-2000 on some dotted Undertaking .. District Secys should inform us whether any such case is there in our SSAs

    We are having hundreds of Cases  promoted before 1-10-2000 and opted fixation on their date of increment falling after 1-10-2000. Though belatedly by 2006 DOT approved with illustrations, subsequently it was denied on the grounds that the employees lost their Govt status.. Our efforts yet to give any break through

    BSNLEU Reporting on JAC meet with Director HR
    22. Option to the Non-Executives, for fixation of pay on promotion, on the date of next
    increment which fell after 01-10-2000.
    This case is already referred to DoT for approval. It is likely to be approved. JAC demanded that, in the meanwhile, letter should be issued to stop the recovery. Management said that issuing of the letter is getting delayed since the ED (Finance) was on leave. JAC urged early releasing of the letter.
    There is no mention about the same in NFTE CHQ 's reporting

    ....The order issued here is for those cases to retain Old pay scales till their promotion after 1-10-2000.. In TN we are having cases those who got promotion in CDA scales before 1-10-2000 then changed to IDA sclaes on 1-10-2000 and opting their pay fixation for promotion in the changed IDA scales.. so we find some difficulty.. Unless things are sorted out with the help of DPE/DOT either by giving the case to CG National council staff side or thro all our efforts, things will not move.

    1-7-14    The great Judicial Mind : Kerala HC has given verdict that Pay Commission is just an expert committee  and it is up to   Govt  to decide on it..  Employees can’t demand it in every 5 years

    DA from   1-7-14  is 91.3 %  an increase of 0 .8 % (Comparing Jan)after the fall in April

     Issue of MTNL Merger is getting serious attention.. Draft has been sent to MOC  Shri RaviShankar prasath.. We don’t know what are the reports of internal committee setup for this purpose..  BSNL sought opinion on HR matter alone from Unions..  No one knows what happened to all our views whether examined.. Accepted or rejected.. As stake Holders MOC should take us into confidence to avoid industrial unrest

    26-6-14 சுற்றறிக்கை 60 (Circular 60 On District Conferences)

    26-6-14 GPF நிதி கேட்டதைவிட மிக குறைவாக வந்துள்ளதால் நமது தோழர்கள் பலர் பாதிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளனர். அந்த கோபத்தையும் பல தோழர்கள் நம்மிடம் வெளிப்படுத்தி வருகின்றனர். என் பணத்தை தருவதற்கு கூட என்ன கேடு- சங்கத்தை மூடு என்ற வசை கூட வருகிறது.  மாநில கவுன்சிலில் விவாதிக்கப்பட்டபோது  நிர்வாகம் டெல்லியை காட்டியது. கார்ப்பரேட் நிர்வாகம் நிதியில்லை என்கிறது.  DOT- BSNL GPF உறவுகள் குறித்து கார்ப்பரேட் நிர்வாகமும், நமது CHQ தலைமையும் கூடுதல் விளக்கங்களை தெளிவை தரவேண்டியுள்ளோம். நியாயமற்ற காரணங்கள் என தெரிந்தால் நாம் போராட்டங்களில் இறங்கலாம் என்பதையும் தெரிவித்துள்ளோம்.

     

  • 25-6-14     PSUs should have progressive cadre oriented policy.. Unfortunately BSNL which is in dire need of Second cadre restructuring as per its marketing commercial and technical requirements is moving sluggish even on the question of Designation change. Change of RRs becomes now MOU target.  We don’t know what is the terms of ref to Deloitte.. Conservative CG departments are undergoing changes… They abolished Gr D posts and upgraded all to Gr C.   But it seems that BSNL is evincing the attitude of more loyal than the King.. Creation of Multi Tasking Staff in NE 5 scale and absorption of all RM- Gr D would solve the issue of RMs.. They may be given 2 weeks or more training to know about the multi tasking.  As in the RR of TM, provision  can be made for left out CL/TSM to get into the multi tasking cadre. We request our CHQ to take up this issue to the authority concerned.   A corrigendum may also be sought relaxing educational qualification for TM exam.

A sort of new cadre in LM scale NE 4 scale by Grouping the posts of NE1 to NE4 may be helpful in creating MTS cadre. This idea is yet to take a concrete shape in the staff side. The idea of creation of cadre with specific RR in NE 4 would help us to solve the issue of Stagnation to some extent and may help us to seek some provision for Casual Labour to get recruited to permanent post as in the case of postal MTS RR. We hope that staff side would advance and enrich the idea and present the same to the management.

    SC Judgment for Uninterrupted 730 days CCL : Women employees of the central government can take uninterrupted leave for two years for childcare, which includes needs like exams and sickness, the Supreme Court said today.It set aside a Calcutta High Court order, which held that Central Civil Services (Leave) Rules do not permit uninterrupted childcare leave (CCL) for 2 years, or 730 days.The court said CCL beyond 730 days can be granted by combining other leave, if due.

  •  A progressive judgment On the Issue of Transgender: According to the Supreme Court judgment, the transgender community will now be treated as the third gender and will be eligible for all the facilities including a voters’ ID card, passport and driving license.

    The Supreme court today asked the centre to treat the trans-gender community as ”socially and economically backward”, to enable them to get reservations in jobs and education. The Supreme Court decision came after a petition that had been filed in the court by the National Legal Services Authority, seeking equal rights for the trans-gender community. The National Legal Services Authority claimed that even hospitals have refused to admit them for treatment, which is highly unfair.

    According to the Supreme court, the government at the centre and states must put in active efforts to raise awareness on them through social welfare schemes. The court said that transgenders are citizens of the country and have equal rights to education, employment and social acceptability.

  • 20-3-14    NO  3rd  PRC?  The Second Pay Revision Committee (2nd PRC), headed by Mr. Justice M. Jagannadha Rao, retired Judge, Supreme Court   in the preface of the Report expressed:
    “A question that was repeatedly raised in our discussion with CPSEs was that 10 years are too long a period for pay revision in the public sector and that this time gap should be reduced to five years or so. Our general preference will be that once our recommendations have been given effect, the responsibility of future revision should be given to the Board of Directors of a company subject to the approval of the concerned Ministry in discharge of its role as shareholders. We would like to see that we are the last such committee for deliberating on the remuneration structure in the public sector as a whole and that hereafter no such committee will be necessary. Revision can be considered by the Board of
    Directors and the concerned Ministry as and when necessary on the basis of the
    economic situation and the nature of the concerned industry.”

Then why discrimination for BSNL alone and compelling us to continue in FR116 on the Maximum Pay.. We should also be permitted to pay our contribution as per actual pay since 1-1-06 and the remitted contribution over and above should be adjusted for future payment.. This would cause us to save some hundreds of crores and help us to find a way for the settlement of stagnation issue also..  We hope that Forum of our Unions should take serious attention on this issue  and take up the case with BSNL , DOT and MOF

  • 28-10-13: Oct 30th Fast For Bonus:

    Even American Parliament is set ready to celebrate Deepawali as a mark of respect to Indian cultural sentiments. Our BSNL Management, of course politely saying no to our claim of restoration of Bonus and would issue words of wishes. BSNL claims that their new strategy is to monetize everything to thrive on business but CMD and the remuneration Committee fails to understand our expectation to monetize our ordinary desire.. Are we so greedy to demand Bonus, that Costs not even more than 70 Crores.. Management has taken away 400 Crores in the way of MRS and 100 Cr in the name of LTC Cut and even 1000s of crores arrears of 78.2 still pending.  Even after all these, Workers are generous to contribute 18 cr to Utharakant.. Management is not reciprocating and failed to understand to gauge our sentiment of getting some bonus .. Indian ethos are not weighing things only on profit –loss basis, it is primarily based on mutual Bonds/ Bondage and one cannot  feel this  in Western type of corporate culture.

    It is not that just because NFTE is recognized, one should get Bonus. Everyone knows that NFTE has no such magical Wand to bring it thro tricks.. NFTE is dutifully demanding the Bonus, from its rightful position of Recognition. There is no bilateral agreement as on date in BSNL between Recognized Union/unions and Management on the issue of Bonus. Just some concurred DOT instructions..And BSNL orders on MOU and Profit basis for PLI.. Which one is erroneous as per DPE GUIDELINES?

    Let us echo our strong sentiment on 0ct 30th, the day of fast/ repentance.. Don’t make BSNL Employees an Outcaste in the Region of BONUS.. Let this voice be clear and louder

  • 22-10-13:

    Our CHQ leadership is trying their best to impress upon management that Bonus issue cannot be set aside and clarified that quantum need not be an issue to nullify Bonus. DPE has clarified that PLI is nothing connected with the question of Profit and well within the ceiling of perks of 50 % Basic.  As per this clarification 30 % HRA places are due with 36 % (for 2011-12 and 2012-13  18+18) of Basic,  20% HRA places employees  are due with 56% and 10 % HRA places employees are having due with 76 % of their Basic as Bonus.  No Profit mercy is needed for this.

    As per the Bonus Act, all those workmen below the basic of 10000 should be given Bonus 3500. No profit mercy is needed for this. Moreover customary Bonus is also a concept that makes us eligible as per the Bonus act, not linking profit.

     An industry body representing mobile phone companies offering services on the CDMA platform asked the telecoms department to take back excess airwaves held by GSM service providers and put them up for auction in addition to 13.75 MHz that will be put up for bidding. Adding that DoT should send notices demanding Rs 36,993 crore from incumbent GSM telcos that have unduly benefited from holding airwaves beyond the contracted limit of 6.2 MHz

  •  The New Year is expected to ring in higher call rates but with little improvement in service quality. Call rates in India crashed following intense competition since 2008 in anticipation of new players entering the market. In fact, players ranked sixth or below in any service area today incur a loss on almost every customer they have on the network.
    Yet, with little or no investment capital or motivation, analysts expect companies will retain the benefits from higher pricing rather than expanding services aggressively.
