19.02.2019

All the AUAB leaders of rajasthan Circle met with CGMT, Sr. GM (Finance), GM (HR) and PGMTD-Jaipur to send the actual data of strike report. No manipulation of the data will be accepted by AUAB.

Second day strike --- All the employees are requested to give the strike report to the authorities positively. The official data of participation in the strike is equally important as this figure will communicate the real resentment of BSNL employees, to the Govt. The CSs and SSA Secs to monitor the strike report sent to BSNLCO.

Those who are not participating in the strike should ponder over which side they are. In this hour of crisis, whether they are with BSNL or not? Can’t they make a small sacrifice for the company? Our participation is a small sacrifice for BSNL, for its existence, which had given everything to us. This strike and employees protest is for the survival of BSNL. Our agitation will put the revival of BSNL as priority agenda of the Govt.

First day strike --- a roaring success ---

AUAB congratulates all the Executives and Non Executives:

The AUAB has heartily congratulated the Non-Executives and Executives of BSNL, for making the 1st day strike a roaring success. In its meeting held at 15:30 hrs today, the AUAB reviewed the 1st day strike. GSs and senior office bearers of all the constituents of the AUAB attended. As per the report received from Circles, the 1st day strike is near total. It is also observed that the strike is taking place in a totally peaceful manner.

On one side, in its statement issued through the Press Information Bureau late last evening, the DoT had stated that, it is in the process of negotiating with the AUAB, to resolve the issues. However, on the other side, the DoT has not come forward to invite the AUAB for talks, even after the employees have en-masse joined the 1st day strike. This only shows the double- talk of the DoT. Under these circumstances, todays meeting of the AUAB, resolved to call upon the employees to further intensify the strike and make it a cent percent success on the 2nd and 3rd day.

MAKE EXTENSIVE PREPARATIONS FOR 3 DAYS STRIKE FROM 18.02.2019 BY AUAB

Conduct door to door campaign in the remaining two days.

The revival of our company is the biggest challenge before us. All negative forces and vested interests joined their hand together against BSNL. The future of all, our young generation with 20 to 35 years of service left, at stake. The issues are so critical and common for all the employees, irrespective of Union/Assn affiliation. Since this agitation is for our survival, local and small issues should not come on the way of our unity. Join hands with each and every employee and make this strike a grand success. This strike is for our survival

Our Unity is our strength.

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 its earlier assurance to give IDA neutralisation immediately and process 5% fitment. 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.

The AUAB also told the CMD BSNL that lot of time has been already given to DoT and the strike will now take place successfully.The AUAB rejected the appeal of the CMD/BSNL and told the Management in categorical terms that, there is no question of going back from the decision to go on strike andreaffirmed that the strike will take place at any cost.
 

Further CMD BSNL explained the serious financial crisis being faced by the BSNL and appealed for the cooperation of the AUAB, for deferring payment of the salary for the month of February, 2019 by 15 days as revenue flow will improve by March.

Meeting with Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL on 08.02.2019: GS, President, AGSs Com P P Rao and Sanjeev Sharma and Jt Sec(S) Com A Chandrasekhar met CMD and held discussions on the acute financial crisis in the organization. We appraised CMD about the situation in the field units which is affecting the services and gradually affect the revenue also. Since DoT is not given the letter of comfort, taking bank loan also delayed, CMD informed us.

Notification of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy as assured by the management: All the promotions are held up due to non-availability of posts, court cases and reservation issue. The reservation policy and the seniority related dispute created deadlock in JTO to SDE promotion. In other streams non-availability of vacancies is the main problem. BSNL is following the post based promotions followed in Govt Depts which is the main reason for creating such situation. This created huge disparity in promotions which resulted in resentment among the Executives especially the major wing, Engg wing. As a solution to all the issues, the new promotion policy is approved by the BSNL Board in line with the promotion policy followed in all CPSUs. It is to be implemented immediately, w.e.f 01.07.2018, we demanded.

Assn is not able to contain the resentment among the Executives waiting for promotion and will be compelled to start agitations in short notice, we informed. CMD reassured to notify the policy at the earliest.
