CWC meeting at Kolkata on 08th and 09th February, 2016.
Homage to the great leader Late Com W. Seshagiri Ro:
CWC paid rich tributes to the veteran leader Com W. Seshagiri Rao who led the Association as CHQ President and General Secretary upto 2006. By his sad demise, the trade union movement lost a great stalwart, great visionary, the most dedicated, committed and selfless leader. His contribution in 1640 pay scale struggle, 1990 joint struggle for lateral advancement, interaction with V CPC for gazetted status to JTO cadre and upgradation of pay scales of JTOs to Rs 6500-10500, strong opposition against Corporatization, organizational and legal action against absorption in BSNL for an adhoc payment of Rs 2000 without declaring the terms and conditions for absorption, finalization of pay scales, promotion policy and fitment formula for absorption in BSNL, absorption of JTO cadre as an Executive in BSNL, framing of EPP, abolition of qualifying exam, thousands and thousands of promotion from JTO to SDE etc are some of the milestones.
His another dream was the unity among the Executives. Formation of SNEA in 2003 at Kanyakumari conference merging TEOA and BSNLEA was a step in that direction. In that AIC, he simply handed over the mantle to Com G. L. Jogi, another great leader. He brought up this organization and he will live in the hearts of thousands and thousands of the Executives forever and ever, CWC observed.
Paying rich tributes to Com W. Seshgiri Rao, CWC decided to work for his dream – Upliftment of the cadres and Unity among the Executives.In the memory of Late Com W. Seshagiri Rao, CWC unanimously resolved to rename our SNEA Bhavan at New Delhi as Seshagiri Rao Bhavan.
