MASSIVE RALLY TO SANCHAR BHAVAN ON 05.04.2019

All the Circles should make advance reservations to reach Delhi on 05.04.2019. AUAB is planning to conduct the March with more than 10000 employees on the charter of demands. Immediate measures for revival of BSNL is our main demand.

18-03-2019

Campaign through Twitter: It is a very effective tool to take the campaign SAVE BSNL forward. The social media plays a very important role nowadays and Govt listen to that. The issues related to BSNL is getting lot of media attention today. At the same time lot of negative and fake news are also coming, tarnishing the image of BSNL. We have to effectively counter those mal propaganda with factual statements in a systematic manner.

The number of Twitter accounts created and the use of Twitter for re-twitting the messages are not upto our expectations. Our CSs, SSA secretaries and Office bearers at all levels are to seriously involve in the campaign, ensure all the employees and the family members joining the campaign by opening the account. Pl ensure that our subordinate Non-Executives are opening the Twitter accounts and re-twitting the messages in #SAVEBSNLINDIA.

GS writes to Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD/BSNL:

Move for approval of Restructuring and HR plan of BSNL – the new Time Bound promotion policy is to be implemented before taking the proposal for the approval of MC and BSNL Board. More than 40% of the sanctioned posts and almost all the vacancies in different cadres will stand abolished once HR plan is approved by the Board. This will create huge unrest in the company which is already facing financial crisis.

GS writes to Smt Sujata T Ray, Director (HR):

The huge disparity and anomaly created in promotions among equivalent cadres of different wings in selected cadres is to be resolved for the motivation of the majority of Executives – the repeated assurance to implement the new promotion policy w.e.f. from the same date of promotion, 29.06.2018 or the nearest review date, 01.07.2018 is to be materialised before relinquishing your esteemed office to establish that management is impartial in providing promotions to all the cadres.

MASSIVE RALLY TO SANCHAR BHAVAN ON 05.04.2019

The Govt is taking calculated steps to finish off BSNL, systematically by not allowing it to expand the network and provide 4G services, deliberately creating industrial unrest in the company by stopping the funds and salary payment and making BSNL gradually sick. This is deliberate because about 6,000 Cr rupees, payable to BSNL is blocked by DoT (Rs 2350 Cr on BWA spectrum refund interest, Rs 2100 Cr on excess pension Contribution paid, other receivables from DoT). This in turn will benefit the private operators especially Reliance Jio to capture the entire telecom market. The Administrative Ministry DoT and Hon Minister repeatedly assured AUAB that it is committed for revival of BSNL, 4G spectrum allotment and settlement of HR issues as we demanded, but not done anything on the assurances. When Govt slowly gone back from the assurances and started purchasing time, AUAB in strongest protest, gone for 3 days strike in February.

DoT is meticulously implementing the Govt decisions to finish off BSNL with the support of Niti Aayog, Finance Ministry etc. The DoT finance is creating all the hurdles on each are every BSNL proposal, with the tacit support of the higher authorities. This calculated move of the Govt and the DoT placed BSNL in such a critical condition, that the employees are unable to get their salary. The DoT is not allowing BSNL to take bank loan for the CAPEX for expansion of network or OPEX for operations when other operators are taken lakhs of Crores of rupees bank loan for the CAPEX and OPEX. Due to shortage of funds, BSNL is not even able to pay electricity bills, labour charges, maintenance charges, vendor payments for the AMC, vehicle running etc which in turn is seriously affecting the services.

The AUAB discussed all these issues during the last 3 days and firmly decided to expose the conspiracies of the Govt and the DoT. Hence, the AUAB has decided to organise a massive Rally to Sanchar Bhavan on 05.04.2019. It has decided to invite the leaders of all political parties to address this rally. 

All the Circles and SSAs are requested to mobilise the maximum number of employees for the rally and to make it an historic event.

AUAB also decided to meet all the Political parties at Central level, state level and the prominent candidates of each constituency to seek their support for the revival of BSNL.

Meeting with Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD/BSNL: AUAB leaders met CMD/BSNL and held discussions regarding payment of salary for the month February, 2019 and the repressive measures initiated under FR 17A against the employees participated in the  strike, especially the Executives. GSs and senior leaders of BSNLEU, NFTE, SNEA, AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA, BSNLMS, BSNLOA and TEPU were present in the meeting. DIR(HR) was also present in the meeting.

CMD informed that the salary will be paid by next week end, according to the present cash flow.

On the repressive measures, AUAB explained that FR 17A is not part of CDA Rules or it is not adopted by BSNL so far and hence it is not applicable for BSNL employees. The action initiated under FR 17A is not valid, AUAB explained to management.

Accordingly, the proposed Relay Hunger fast by CHQ leaders of AUAB at New Delhi from 12.03.2019, demanding salary payment and withdrawal of repressive measures deferred.

Emergency meeting of AUAB:

AUAB conducted its emergency meeting today, 07.03.2019. GSs and senior leaders of BSNLEU, NFTE, SNEA, AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA, TEPU, BSNL MS and BSNLOA attended. Meeting discussed the following issues:

a) Non-payment of salary to the Employees for the month of February 2019.

b) Vindictive actions against AUAB Leaders, particularly leaders of Executive Associations.

c) Progress of the charter of demands submitted by AUAB.

After discussion at length on the above issues, following decisions were taken unanimously.

i) To meet CMD BSNL, immediately on the issue of non-payment of salary of February, 2019 and vindictive actions. If the response is not positive, to organise Relay Hunger Strike from 12th March, 2019 at Corporate Office by the CHQ leaders. If the issues are not settled in a reasonable time, hunger strike will be extended at Circle and SSA levels.

ii) To conduct the PMO March in April, 2019 on the charter of demands.

iii) To complete the submission of memorandum to the remaining MPs at the earliest.

iv) Campaign on the charter of demands through Twitter to the PMO, MoSC, CMD etc. The details will be uploaded separately.

v) SMS campaign on the charter of demands.

vi) The meeting emphasized the need for taking extra efforts to increase the revenue which is the only way for survival. All other measures are short term and will give temporary relief to the employees and the company. Unless and until business volume and revenue is not increasing, it will become very difficult to survive.

Strong unity and solidarity among the employees are required at this point of time to tide over the crisis, AUAB opined.

Meeting with Shri Vivek Banzal, new DIR(Fin), in charge:

AUAB could not meet CMD yesterday, 05.03.2019 regarding payment of salary and the proposed move to issue show causes to the employees under FR 17A as he was not available in the office. AUAB met DIR(Fin) and held discussions regarding payment of salary. He has just taken the charge today only. In a sudden move, on 28.02.2019, DoT taken away the charge of DIR(Fin) from Smt Sujata T Ray with immediate effect and handed over to Shri Vivek Banzal who is already holding the charges of DIR(CFA) and DIR(CM). How BSNL can function when three Directors charge is holding by one person!

On salary payment, DIR(Fin) did not make any commitments but assured to make all the efforts for that. AUAB once again demanded that the salary should be paid simultaneously to all the employees without discrimination. The presidential sanction for availing bank loan for Capex is issued by DoT on 01.03.2019 but it is partial. It is not going to help BSNL at all. For both year 2017-18 and 2018-19, approval given for 4,300 Cr each but the loan taken was much higher than the sanctioned amount. The Board sanction and approval sought from DoT was for higher amount. What is the criteria followed for this approval is not known, DIR informed. BSNL is writing to DoT for the sanction of the remaining amount today itself. Similarly BSNL Board proposal for loan for Opex is not approved by DoT so far.

All out efforts are required to improve the cash collection and adding new business which is a big challenge before us. Loan is a temporary measure to tide over the present crisis which has to be repaid in due course. Due to the stress in the Telecom sector, banks are very reluctant to give loan, it is another factor. The RBI ceiling of 5 lakhs crores for Telecom sector is already crossed and the liability of Telecom sector is more than 6.1 lakhs crores now.

Congratulations to all----

Finally Group Term Insurance got implemented w.e.f 02.03.2019.

The cheque for Rs 18,33,91,234.00 dated 02.03.2019 is handed over to LIC making GTI scheme operational w.e.f 02.03.2019.

15,958 Executives opted for 50 lakhs coverage (15,116 upto 50 years and 8,42 above 50 years) and 5,38 Executives above 50 years opted for 20 lakhs coverage.

We are extremely grateful to CMD and DIR(HR) for making the advance payment by arranging the funds in difficult situation. The advance payment is already made by BSNL and the premium will be deducted from the salary of March, 2019. If BSNL did not agree for advance payment, the scheme would not have become operational and in the new financial year, fresh negotiation, fresh options and new quote was required from LIC.

It was a dream project of SNEA for the younger generation who are not having the protection of family pension like others. SNEA demanded GTI immediately after the MV and management started working on it. Other Assns also contributed during the process.

GS writes to CMD Protesting the Payment of salary to selected units ......The management should take necessary corrective steps immediately to disburse the salary without any discrimination. The Executives in the field units are already demoralized due to various reasons, including discrimination in promotions. Further demoralization of employees in the field units by non-payment of salary will have cascading effect on the revival of BSNL ... View Copy of the Letter.
