Circle Conference of UP(East) Circle.
The Circle conference of UP(East) Circle was held at RTTC, Lucknow on 17th and 18th April, 2015. An opens session was held on 17.04.2015 in which hundreds of comrades from Lucknow and nearby SSAs participated. CHQ President, CGMT UP(E) Circle Sri H. R. Shukla, PGMTD, Lucknow and other senior officers participated in the open session. In the open session focus was on issues related to growth, expansion and quality of service. CHQ President explained the policies of the Govt which crippled the company in the past. CGMT informed that now UPE Circle started growing very fast and he had taken series of measures to improve the service and curtail wasteful expenditure.
GS and President addressed the delegate session on 18th April. Both explained the situation which led to the strike in the banner of Forum. The strike is not for any monetary benefit, but to protect our company, to protect our job. In order to protect our company, we have to make the strike on 21st and 22nd April a grand success. It should be an eye opener to the Govt. All the issues pertaining to the Govt to be addressed in a time bound manner. Simultaneously issues related to retirement benefits like 30% superannuation benefit and automatic pension revision also to be settled. It is a do or die situation for us.
On HR issues, we have to address the twin issues of standard pay scales and delinking the promotions from existing seniority. BSNL management is proposing to demote the basic Cadre to E1 and E2 scales? In the present situation we cannot expect promotions in the next ten years because all the seniority lists are quashed by Hon Courts and the litigations are continuing. Management is not bothered about this or ignorant about this? So, the only way to protect our promotional avenues is to switch over to TB functional promotion. It is the duty of each and every Executive of this company to protect the pay scales and promotions and struggle for standard E2, E3, --- E7 pay scales and TB functional promotion irrespective of Union /Assn affiliation. SNEA(I) already started agitational programmes to resolve these twin issues of standard pay scales and TB promotions.
GS and President appealed all the Executives to join the agitation programms in the coming days and strengthen the Executives Unity so that these two issues of the cadre can be resolved once for all. The conference resolved that at any cost we will protect the cadre from demotion to E1 and E2 scale and the promotional avenues.
