Massive participation in the Dharna held on 18th Sept, 2014 across the country ---

congratulations to one and all.

Keep the momentum and start mobilization for the next programmes from 01.10.2014 onwards. We will continue our struggle till we achieve our demands as per the assurance given in March, 2014.

Massive participation reported from Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, UP(E), Karnataka, West Bengal, Kol TD, Punjab, Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Assam, NE I etc etc. Hundreds of Executives participated in the Dharna at Delhi, Chennai, Banglore, Patna, Pune, Hyderabad, Bhopal, Lucknow, Ludhiana etc.

The massive participation shows the large scale resentment among the Executives in non resolution of the crucial issues of the basic cadres, JTO/JAO, SDE/AO etc like E2, E3 pay scales, promotions, 30% superannuation benefits, CPSU cadre hierarchy etc even after the assurance from management in March, 2014.

Large no of Executives especially young comrades participated in the agitation, irrespective of membership realizing the fact that this struggle is going to decide their future. SNEA, the home of JTOs will never allow its demotion and continue the struggle for the promotion of JTO cadre by way of pay scales, promotions etc.

In TN and CHTD, the Dharna held on 19.09.2014 due to elections. J&K Circle was exempted from demonstration and Dharna as they are fully involved, round the clock, in restoration of the services in J&K.


Indefinite fast from 22.09.2014 at BSNLCO by CHQ leaders:

BSNLCO issued instructions to Kerala Circle to implement all the commitments made to the Assn. Based on the instructions from BSNLCO and as per the commitments, CGMT/Kerala issued the transfer order to bring back 68 Executives who had posted to other SSAs two years back to meet the shortages. 

However, the vindictive actions, especially the transfer of office bearers and activists, massive victimization in the form of dies-non, charge sheet to the office bearers, transfer in the name of rationalization and ERP etc continuing after the settlement reached on 01.08.2014, clearly in violation of the terms of settlement.

Against these vindictive actions, CHQ office bearers will be starting “Indefinite Fast” at BSNLCO and Kerala Comrades at Circle office, Trivandrum from 22.09.2014. “Work according to Rule” in Kerala Circle also will continue. CHQ Treasurer and three AGSs are deputed to Kerala Circle. Remaining CHQ office bearers will be at New Delhi.

 GS letter to CMD, BSNL


JAO to AO promotion: Association strongly protests against the arbitrary move to fill up few AO posts keeping aside large no of AO vacancies. According to the proposal, the JAOs of 2003 and 2004 year only will be considered for promotion now, where as more than 1800 vacancies are available. Assn strongly demand that all the 1800 plus AO vacancies to be filled immediately with eligible JAOs.


Meeting with Sri Anupam Srivastava, DIR(CM): GS Com K. Sebastin met DIR(CM) and discussed the disconnection of BSNL GSM sites by the IP provider “VIOM” in MP, MH and GUJ Circles. DIR(CM), taken up the matter with the CEO of “VIOM”. The dispute between BSNL and “VIOM”  is regarding the rent for the IP sites where BSNL is the 5th or 6th service provider, and there is no rate fixed for the 5th or 6th service provider. After the strong intervention of DIR(CM), “VIOM” agreed to reconnect the IP sites disconnected earlier.
