[25.07.2017]Verification of signature by controlling officer, in the case of officials filling up forms for deduction of union subscription.
It seems some unions have demanded that when an official fills up declaration form, for deduction of union subscription, his / her signature need not be verified by the controlling officer. We do not know which union has made such a demand. Corporate Office has sought our view on this matter. If this condition is cancelled, then it will pave the way for committing malpractices. Hence, BSNLEU has informed the Management that verification of signature by the controlling officer is a must, and there is no reason to change this clause.<<<view letter>>>
[25.07.2017]Question and answers in connection with the Wage Revision.
Question : According to the 3rd PRC recommendations, BSNL is not eligible for Wage Revision. On 19-07-2017, the Cabinet meeting, chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has already fully approved the recommendations of the 3rd PRC. Under these circumstances, whether the DoT has power to allow BSNL to give Wage Revision to it's employees?
[25.07.2017]The press statement issued by com.P.Abhimanyu, on behalf of the unions and associations has got very good response from the media. The following is the coverage made by the Economic Times.
NEW DELHI: Employees of state-owned telecom firm BSNL have called a day-long nationwide strike on July 27 for not being given wage hike by the third pay revision committee. The committee recommends hike on the basis of performance of public sector firms. "BSNL became a loss making entity not because of the employees but because of the anti-BSNL policies and measures adopted by the government. BSNL was not allowed to procure equipments for its mobile network expansion from 2006 to 2012," BSNL Employee Union convenor P. Abhimanyu said in a statement.
The recommendation of the third Pay Revision Committee was approved by the Cabinet on July 19. As per the affordability clause of the recommendations, only those public sector undertakings (PSUs) which have earned profit during the last three financial years are eligible to give wage revision to their employees. "The officers and workers of BSNL are going on a one day strike on July 27, 2017, demanding wage revision. The next round of wage revision has become due for the entire public sector employees from January 1, 2017," the statement said. Abhimanyu alleged that tenders floated by BSNL to procure mobile equipments were cancelled one after another by the government to benefit the private telecom companies.
"As a result of this blockade created by the government in the procurement of equipments, BSNL was not able to take advantage of the exponential growth witnessed in the mobile segment, during this period," he said. BSNL Management started procurement of equipments from 2013 onwards and thereafter, significant improvement has been made to the BSNL's quality of services. As a result of all these efforts, a significant change has come in the financial position of the company, the statement said. BSNL had incurred Rs 691 crore operational loss in the year 2013-14, whereas it earned an operational profit of Rs 672 crore in 2014-15 and Rs 3,854 crore in the year 2015-16.
"Even in the midst of cut-throat competition from Reliance Jio, BSNL is adding 20 lakh new mobile customers every month. BSNL is sure to become a profit making PSU within next 2-3 years," the statement said. Abhimanyu said that BSNL officers and workers have significantly contributed in bringing the company on revival path and BSNL employees should be given wage revision with 15 per cent fitment. "The unions and associations will be compelled to resort to more serious forms of struggles, if the government does not respond favourably to the demand of the employees," he said.
[24.07.2017]Hold massive demonstrations on the day of strike.
The unions and associations which have given call for one day strike on 27.07.2017, have also decided to call upon the employees to conduct massive demonstrations in all places on the day of the strike. Such demonstrations will certainly bring media focus and the message about the strike will reach far and wide among the people. Hence, CHQ of BSNLEU calls upon the circle and district unions to take steps for effectively organising the demonstrations massively on the day of the strike.
