Subject : AIGETOA STAND ON AGITATION CALLED BY FORUM OF BSNL UNIONS/ASSOCIAITONS
GS along with AGS and VP attended the meeting called by forum on 16th May-2013 at BSNL CO New Delhi to sign the notice to be served. GS requested the forum to include standard pay to the executives recruited after 01-01-2007 as they are not going to benefited by 78.2 IDA merger and 30% superannuation benefit to directed recruits who are not covered under pensionary benefit as this was also one of the issues of original agitation of forum but it is not considered by representatives of other associations and unions citing right now they want to concentrate on single issue.
Although many members of this association are benefited by 78.2 IDA merger but considering the fact that our members who are recruited after 01.01.2007 are not going to be benefited in any manner by proposed issue of 78.2 IDA merger and 30% superannuation benefit issue is dropped by forum on the midway with the reason best known to them, AIGETOA has decided not to participate physically in the proposed agitation and plan its own agitational program to resolve the above issues. This association will extend only moral support subjected our above issues will be recognised and supported by forum.
It doesnít mean at all that AIGETOA is not in favour of 78.2 IDA merger but also want to implement standard pay scale of E2 and 30% superannuation benefit to direct recruits in parallel with 78.2 IDA merger as both is also the part of 2nd PRC recommendations. During the strike of forum, AIGETOA will not physically participate and at the same time we will also not support the management in maintaining the services through contingency plan. Members of this association will perform only their normal duties subjected sufficient security is provided by the local management.

Subject : GS VISIT TO BSNL CO FOR FOLLOW UP THE ISSUES
GS visit to BSNL CO for follow up the issues :
16th May-2013 :
GS along with AGS and VP met CMD to apprise him about the issues discussed with Director (HR) on 23rd April-2013. We explained him about the issues but CMD was completely ignorant and was not giving any importance to them. He said "letters de dijiye". "Examine kara lenge" sort of things. When we told him that we have already given numerous letters on issues, he said give one more letter. On the irregularities made on the vacancy issue also, he was non-committal and said no corrective action can be taken as the same has already happened. However, after that the team met the nodal GMs looking into the issues. They did showed some concern and explained about the progress of the resolution but the ultimate resolution depends on the willingness of the CMD who is completely negative and non-committed. Still we tried our best to convince him.
17th May-2013 :
Some lady officers from Faridabad came to meet GS that they were being threatened by ex-GMTD P K Shrivastava who is accused of sexual harassment of one lady officer at Faridabad and desired to meet CMD to apprise him about the hardships faced. Initially CMD refused to meet them. Thereafter, later on the intervention of GS, CMD agreed to meet three of them but made them run pillar to post to complete the formalities like make visitor pass etc. Perhaps for the first time in the history of BSNL CO, any employee may have been forced to make visitor pass to meet CMD and that too in the scenario that vendors and their representatives are having a free run in BSNL CO with many of their representatives having a permanent access on daily basis. Even they can be seen roaming in BSNL CO even in late hours when the system of making visitor pass is only up to 5:30-6:00 PM. This is really sad that employees of BSNL were being forced into making visitor passes to harass and terrorise them as they came to CMD to raise their voice against the evil, to have a meeting with CMD to make him aware of their grievances but the way CMD reacted is leaving us with no reasons to believe that he is not involved in protecting the culprit. Instead of listening to their grievances, CMD behaviour was as if nothing major has happened. He suggested lady officers to go to cybercrime cell. He also addressed the culprit as ďGentlemanĒ. CMD did not allow Even GS to accompany the lady officers who were very afraid and fearful. CMD went to the extent of asking GS to have a visitorís Pass, if he wants to meet him. Then GS got the visitorís Pass issued and met CMD and asked him that since now the employee of BSNL including the GS AIGETOA himself is being asked to get the visitorís Pass, why does not CMD ask the concerned wing to issue a permanent pass for GS AIGETOA by recognising AIGETOA at par with other Associations.
GS further told CMD that instead of listening to the genuine voices of the executives, you are trying to avoid us by getting us to indulge in the useless formalities. You are not even listening to the grievances of female executives when one of a very senior officer is harassing and threatening them like any thing. CMD replied that whatever you want to say, give in writing and we will get that examined. GS told - we have already given in writing, what action you have taken till. CMD told write one more letter, we will examine it and reply if we feel like it is to be replied. On this GS said that perhaps you doesnít want to solve the issue and now it is for us to find the solution. On this CMD said - You are threatening me you canít imagine what I can do to you. Then he called his PS to send GS SNEA Shri K Sabestian and GP SNEA Shri G L Jogi inside. He further told GS that I can get you thrown out of this office, GS told if you can, go ahead. GS told such type of threat can not deter me from raising the genuine voices and now that you are denouncing the path of mutual negotiation, we are left with no option but to resort to strong agitational activity . Our association condemns such action of yours when you are not even willing to listen to the grievances of the lady officers who are being harassed by a very senior officer of the company. CMD then said I was told to listen and I have listened, any further I am not answerable to you atleast. GS reminded CMD that the harassed person happens to be a member and even if she would not have been member of this association, we would have taken her case and we are going to resort to all types of action to punish the guilty. Hearing this CMD said you are threatening me, you have abused me and these two (Mr Sebastien and Mr. Jogi) are my witnesses. This is another sad fact that these two persons who were once the champions of trade union activities in BSNL didnít uttered a single word, neither in favour not against while the whole episode was going on. They didnít even have the will to tell CMD to keep them out of all this. They were acting just as mute spectators. Anyhow, it is their prerogative and they must have acted in a manner which was best according to them. They must have some compelling reasons to do so though, it was unexpected for us. Anyhow, we have no complaints in that regard. We know how to fight our battle unitedly.
After the whole fiasco, GS told CMD that this is not the way the head of the organisation should react and came out of the office. Since CMD was unwilling to listen to grievances and was acting in manner which was way below the norms and standards ( In fact CMD even went on to the extent of suggesting that he is capable enough to settle score on streets), GS was compelled to call nearby members to pressurise the CMD to listen the grievances in proper way as this is the only language which BSNL Management understands. About 100 members along with the victim lady officers and also members from other associations reached CMD office but seeing the situation, CMD moved out of the office through the back door like a quitter and called police to take over the situation. GS along with victim lady officers met Director (HR) in the presence of police then only Director (HR) has shown some commitments towards taking appropriate action.
Further details of the incident will also be uploaded soon on the website. It is concluded that CMD has blocked all the paths of mutual negotiation and now we are left with only the option of the strongest agitational activities to resolve the genuine issues of direct recruited executives hence we should be ready to protect our rights.
SO OUR APPEAL TO EVERY BODY THAT BE READY TO REACT ON
SHORTEST NOTICE AND KEEP STRONGEST PREPARATIONS FOR THE D-DAY WHICH WE ARE GOING
TO ANNOUNCE VERY SOON.
