TALKS FAIL - AUAB DECIDES TO GO AHEAD WITH THE STRIKE
Posted on 16 Feb 2019
Talks fail - AUAB decides to go ahead with the strike :
Today the CMD BSNL and Director HR met the AUAB leaders. The AUAB representatives told the Management that, they are prepared to accept 3rd Pay Revision with 5% fitment, as offered earlier by the DoT. However, they demanded that this commitment should be given in writing by the DoT, so that the AUAB can consider deferment of the strike. Even this demand of the AUAB is not accepted. Further, the DoT has also diluted it's earlier assurance to give DA neutralisation. The DoT is demanding that the AUAB should call off the strike, in view of the terror attack in Pulwama. The Secretary, Telecom, has put a condition that she would not meet the AUAB leaders, unless they call off the strike. Immediately after the meeting with the BSNL Management, all the General Secretaries of the AUAB met and decided to go ahead with the strike. The AUAB has also decided to exempt J&K circle from the strike, to ensure maintenance of services, in the backdrop of the terror attack. The AUAB requests all the circle and district unions to organise the strike powerfully.
UPDATE ON LEGAL PROCEDINGS ON JTO TO SDE SCF PROMOTIONS
Posted on 16 Feb 2019
Update on legal procedings on JTO to SDE SCF Promotions :
The charge sheet proceedings stay was heard at Hon HC, Kerala today. The management side mentioned about the review petitions pending for hearing and Hon Court directed to hear all the petitions together and posted the same to 25/3/2019 along with Review petitions. It is learnt that the reviews are filed by BSNL, AIBSNLEA & some Members of SNEA.
These reviews were filed (despite the fact that), after a wrong implementation by the BSNL management by executing promotions on 15.06.2018, where the absorbee executives from DoT (including thousands of absorbees who got JTO promotions after BSNL formation with back dated YOR). Absorbed executives only promoted (even who were joined as JTO from 2001- 2014 as JTO) and not even a single BSNL Recruit JTO - against the very spirit for interim promotions of Hon HC judgment dated 05.06.18.
We can't find the rationale for the review/clarification on judgment which were not raised/not known to the management, when one side PRs promotions executed in an over night ?? The answer is simple, These 'N' number of review petitions are made simply to delay the justified promotions to BSNL Recruits through SCF quota.

MESSAGE FROM GS
Posted on 13 Feb 2019
Message from GS:
Dear all, Lot of panic has been spread in the employees due to recent media reports and social media campaign. Sudden sense of panic has creeped up in all minds and specially the BSNL recruits keeping in view the number of years we have to spend in BSNL. Our bread and butter comes from BSNL and we can not let it send to back stage or be closed. As per our information, there is no such closure proposal as of now and in all probabilities, a revival package will be in offering . AIGETOA is in favour of implementing VRS and it should be offered to all employees above 50 years of age. We are also in support of reducing retirement age to 58 if government considers it necessary to run BSNL. For us survival of BSNL is a must and all the issues come secondary.
In the recently concluded CEC meeting at Jammu, CHQ team had an extensive discussion on the revival issues and our HR issues. On the revival plan, we will support any move of government which is for the betterment of BSNL and its sustainability. We have already submitted our official view on the matter to IIM team constituted for revival of BSNL and we will be submitting it to other higher ups in administrative ministry including PMO. On the HR issues of BSNL, specially the Promotion issues and MT issue, CHQ has decided to go for Organisational means if management does not come for corrective action immediately. Though our battle in Hon'ble court of law will persist but we are not willing to wait any more with respect to our long pending promotion issues and MT recruitment issue.
We hereby appeal all BSNL Recruits to get united and speak in one voice. Remember we have everything to lose if BSNL fails to survive. We all will have to ensure that BSNL remains safe, progressive and on the path of revival.
