An Earnest Appeal to BSNL Fraternity

Dear Colleagues,

As our Country is going through a highly unprecedented situation on account of second wave of Covid-19 pandemic which has ravaged the nation, we would like to make an earnest appeal to all to be extra careful and cautious in our daily activities. In these trying times, we do understand that delivering and discharging our responsibilities is definitely our job but at the same time wherewithal to protect the health of ourselves and family is also a necessity. Telecom being an essential service and being a vital medium that helps people remain indoors and get connected, it becomes necessary to discharge our responsibilities to maintain the network and serve the public at large but we should not forget the fact that well being of our self and that of our dependant family is also our responsibility. Please note that it is imperative that we and our family keep good health, and then only we can do our job faithfully.

It is also a fact that many of our colleagues, kith and kin have succumbed to the pandemic. Governments have been telling to the public that going out is almost equivalent to value of our lives in these times. Already 16 states have declared lock downs restricting the movement of people which should not be lost sight in the din. Further hospital facilities are crowded and strained across the nation due to the sudden surge of patients. Hence it is our humble suggestion that as far as possible, avoid travel and contact for the next few weeks, till the situation is under control. Let’s hope that the days are not far when the mankind will be successful in keeping a pandemic – which has wreaked havoc, under control.

While Association is leaving no stones unturned in communicating the situation at ground level to management, we also exhort all individuals to turn to their inner self and consult their self conscious in these trying times to find a right balance between the twin functions of discharging their duty and protecting themselves and family. We are confident that every individual is capable of the same and would have resorted to such things in difficult times. However should any one find any difficulty in finding a right balance between these contrasting needs, they are requested get in touch with our office bearers and seek assistance. Our office bearers are also being sensitized about the need to reach out to the fraternity and promote harmony and brotherhood among the masses because people can have diverse needs in such times and it is only with unity that we can tide over such difficult times.

We are also trying our level best to get the vaccination done for all our Employees and have reached out to the highest authorities to get it done at the earliest. We request all to remain calm and composed and not to lose their self confidence. Keep the emergency contacts readily available and have Plans charted out before hand for emergency.

As far as Salary is concerned, it’s indeed regretful that even at this time of pandemic and so much chaos, management could not prioritise the salary disbursement, inspite of raising the matter with highest authority of Director HR and CMD BSNL. It seems the sorrow and hardships of Employees are of no matter to the management. Though We do appreciate the moves like creation of benevolent fund, granting of medical advances but perhaps management is forgetting the fact many people now are fighting with this dreaded disease and are in dire need of Salary.

Management tells every one that BSNL Services is essential services, Hence Management is duty bound to ensure the salary for keeping the essential services up and running. It’s high time that BSNL Management ensures timely salary to Employees or be ready to face the repercussions.

Management has been exercising the option of No Work No Pay time and again, now it’s high time for the Employees to exercise NO PAY – NO WORK. We hereby give warning bell to management that if they do not disburse the Salary now, we will be forced to call upon the Employees to exercise NO PAY- NO WORK.

We hereby call upon all the employees to prepare themselves to react on short notice.

We assure that we will not run away from responsibilities and shall not fail in our endeavour and duties in providing a platform which can be relied upon to in times of crisis.

Together we can … and Together we will…
