Circle Conference of Madhya Pradesh Circle held on 18-19 Sept, 2021

The 8th Circle Conference of Madhya Pradesh Circle was held at Hotel Clarks, Khajuraho on 18-19th September, 2021 in a grand manner. Circle office bearers, SSA Secretaries and delegates from all the SSAs attended the Conference.

Com. K. Sebastin/ GS, Com A.A. Khan/ President, Com Sumit Saxena/ Jt Sec(Central) and Com Manish Samadhiya/AGS attended and addressed the Conference.

An impressive open session was held on 18.09.2021 on the topic: ROADMAP FOR BSNL REVIVAL – FTTH AND NEW BUISINESS OPPORTUNITIES. Shri Sathyanand Rajhans, CGMT/MP was the Chief Guest. Shri M A Khan, GM/Sagar BA, Shri. R. K. Meena/GM Satna BA and Shri Vinod Kumar/ GM(HR) attended the open session.

In their addresses, CHQ leaders focused on BSNL Revival and major HR issues. Through the Unity and continuous struggle, we could successfully stop the BSNL closure and convert it into an excellent Revival package. SNEA CHQ played a very important role in this regard. This was the most challenging period for the Association, especially CHQ. The failure of BSNL management to upgrade the Mobile network and launch 4G services immediately after the approval of revival package is adversely affecting the BSNL. Even salary has become last priority for the management. All employees should be more and more united under AUAB platform to protect our beloved company. The unscientific norms for restructuring are framed without conducting any work study in the field units. It is to be opposed for the future of the Executives and for BSNL growth. Cluster system became a big failure resulting drainage of money and huge surrender of landline and BB connections. FTTH is the life line for BSNL.

Present Management is dead against the career progression of the Executives in any manner. Time Bound promotion is not implemented even after its approval, E2 and E3 pay scales are not pursued for approval, pay anomalies are not addressed, 3rd Pay Revision kept in cold storage, SAB and pension Revision is not in the agenda of the management, etc etc. Management is trying to demoralize the employees in all the means. The Unity of the Executives is the need of the hour. Management is cleverly dividing us and utilizing few among us according to their convenience. SNEA did not lose focus and continued to pursue the Time Bound Promotions with all the strength, even gone for many agitations and gearing up for very strong agitation programs. Now, other Associations also understood the danger after seeing the restructuring plan and decided to join hands with SNEA for the fight against management for getting Time Bound Promotions as approved by the Board on 28.05.2018. We are closely working for a nationwide agitation. E2 and E3 pay scales also will be pursued very strongly.

Circle Secretaries of Maharashtra, UP(East) and Bihar also addressed the Conference.

Circle President, Com. Manish Khare presided over the Conference. Circle Secretary Com. R. K. Deepak presented the report and Circle Treasurer Com. Manoj Kumar presented the audited account.

In the conference, Com. Manish Khare, Com. R K Deepak, Com. Mukesh Soni,  Com. Manoj Kumar, Com. Md. Sheeraz Quereshi and Com.  Umesh Agrawal are elected unanimously as Circle President, Circle Secretary, Circle Treasurer and CWC Members respectively.

CHQ wishes them all the success.

SNEA views / suggestions on the Cluster based Outsourcing System:

The shortcomings in the existing tender, manipulations done by the vendor to have good MTTR and workable solutions to streamline the tender are discussed. In the new experiment of cluster based outsourcing, it is concluded that:

i) The expenditure has not come down as expected rather gone up, almost two times. On an average, about Rs 50/- paid per connection, including incentives.

ii) Services not improved rather deteriorated resulting large scale closure of Landline and BB connections.

iii) More importantly, the cluster partner (vendor) did not invest much to improve the network quality in terms of material and manpower.

iv) Most of the cluster partners do not have any experience in UG cable and external plant maintenance. Most of them are Franchisees or vendors maintaining the BTSs. 

SNEA SUBMISSION TO THE COMMITTEE

28-09-2021


Today the Cluster Committee had discussions with SNEA, BSNLEU and AIGETOA through online. SNEA made a detailed presentation to the Committee on various points based on the inputs collected in the CWC meeting held on 29.08.2021 and 02.09.2021. The shortcomings in the existing tender, manipulations done by the vendor and workable solutions to streamline the tender to maximize the efficiency of the vendor and by prompt service delivery to the customers etc are explained by General Secretary.

In the new experiment, i) the expenditure has not come down as expected rather gone up almost two times, ii) services not improved rather deteriorated resulting large scale closure. This proves the failure  of the new tender which is to be addressed.

The solution should be worked out based on HOW LONG THE LEGACY COPPER WIRE CONNECTIONS will be maintained. Accordingly long term or short term strategy should be evolved, we suggested.

AIGEOTOA and BSNLEU also made presentations on various points explaining the shortcomings and possible solutions.

20th Circle Conference of SNEA, Bihar Circle

The Bihar Circle Conference was held at Patna on 13.09.2021. Hon Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Shri Tarkishore Prasad was the Chief Guest of the Open session. Hon Rural Development Minister of Bihar Shri Shrawan Kumar and CGMT Shri Debvendra Singh addressed the Open session.

GS Com Sebastin. K, CHQ President Com A A Khan, Jt Sec (C) Com Sumit Saxena, GS/NFTE Com Chandeswar Singh and GS/AIGETOA Com Wasi Ahmed addressed the Conference.

All the leaders mainly focused on BSNL Revival in their address. BSNL Revival package was possible only due to struggle by the AUAB and the unity of employees. Trade Unions are facing the toughest challenges for the last few years and our first and foremost priority is BSNL Revival.

It is really unfortunate that BSNL management is not working seriously for BSNL Revival. Delay in launching of 4G services after the Cabinet approval of Revival package is only due to the failure of management. The unscientific norms framed without conducting any work study in the field units is another one and it is going to be disastrous for the company. We are strongly opposing the proposed norms. Introduction of Cluster system, completely ignoring the concerns raised by AUAB, CGMs and other field units became another big failure. Transmission network is collapsing. Salary payment is least priority for the present management. Only FTTH provides life for BSNL and the LCO model is a big success.

Management is not at all interested in settling any HR issues, particularly, regular promotion in any cadre. For settling HR issues, the Unity of the Executives is the need of the hour. Management cleverly dividing us for meeting their agenda. We have to recognize it and raise above petty demands, CHQ leaders appealed. Implementation of Time Bound Promotion Policy is the best example for this. Anticipating Restructuring and post reduction SNEA worked for it tirelessly and got it approved in May, 2018. Even after its approval by the Board, management is not giving promotions. However SNEA did not give up and continuing the struggle for implementation of Time Bound Promotion Policy w.e.f 01.07.2018 itself. Once restructuring is completed, there is no other way for getting promotions. We are trying for unity among the Associations to join hands with SNEA for the fight against management for getting Time Bound Promotions as approved by the Board on 28.05.2018. The response from other Assns is also very encouraging.

Com Wasi Ahmed, GS/AIGETOA in his address acknowledged the urgent need for implementation of the Time Bound Promotion Policy approved by the Board. After restructuring, we cannot expect any career progression, he explained. He also focused the need for a joint struggle.

In the Conference, Com. Ratish Kumar/SDE, Com. Arvind Kumar DE(NIB & NOC),  Com. Amit Kumar Srivastava AGM(EB) and Com. Satish Kumar(DE CNTx, Patna) are unanimously elected as Circle President, Circle Secretary, Circle Treasurer and CWC Member respectively.

3 days very successful Dharna at New Delhi from 21-23.

AUAB Congratulate all the employees:

The AUAB meeting held at New Delhi on 23.09.2021 noted with satisfaction that the 3 days Dharna programme organized by the AUAB at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi from 21-23 September, 2021 has become highly successful. Large number of employees and Pensioners from Delhi as well as from nearby Circles of UP(West), Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and UP(East) have enthusiastically participated in the 3 days Dharna programme. AUAB meeting also noted with satisfaction that the 3 days Dharna programme has created a great amount of zeal and motivation among the BSNL employees and the Pensioners throughout the country. The AUAB meeting conveyed its special thanks to all the employees and Pensioners who have participated in the programme from Delhi, UP(West), Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and UP(East) and also puts on record it’s appreciation to all the Circle Union/Associations of the constituents of AUAB.

Further this meeting severely condemns the BSNL Management for issuing a very retrograde letter on 17.09.2021 to create a fear phychosis among the employees and to stop them from participating in this Dharna. By such letters, management is trying to snatch the DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS OF THE EMPLOYEES TO PROTEST, which we cannot be allowed.

The AUAB assures that further struggles will be organized in the coming days, demanding settlement of the issues contained in the charter of demands of AUAB.
