Indefinite hunger strike by GS and AGS at BSNL CO started.


Indefinite hunger strike by CS KRL, CHQ Tresurer, AGS and our Kerala Comrades started at Circle Office, Tiruvanathpuram.

22-09-2014

Indefinite fast started at BSNL CO and Circle office, Trivandrum demanding immediate withdrawal of all vindictive actions by CGM, Kerala.

22-09-2014

Indefinite fast at BSNLCO by CHQ leaders and activists starts today, 22.09.2014:
SNEA forced to launch such an agitation due to the continuing harassment and the vindictive actions of CGMT/Kerala, in the form of transfer of office bearers and activists, massive victimization in the form of dies-non, charge sheet to the office bearers at Circle level for participating in the hunger strike and writing to CMD/BSNL and Hon MOC by the General Secretary demanding inquiry into the alleged attempt by CGMT/KRL to help/bail out the vendor M/s Nortel from paying penalty and AMC charges etc continuing after the settlement reached on 01.08.2014, clearly in violation of the terms of settlement. The services are deteriorated but CGMT is not concerned about that.
Against these vindictive actions, CHQ office bearers will be starting “Indefinite Fast” at BSNLCO and Kerala comrades and CHQ office bearers at Circle office, Trivandrum from 22.09.2014. “Work according to Rule” in Kerala Circle will continue. CHQ Treasurer and three AGSs are at Trivandrum in solidarity and support to the Kerala Comrades.

22-09-2014

After getting feedback from the Circles, slight changes are made in the next programmes:

01.10.2014, BSNL Day: It will be observed by performing 1 hour extra work.

14.10.2014   : Lunch / closing hour demonstration at Circle/SSA HQs.

28.10.2014   : One day Dharna at Circle/SSA HQs.

10.11.2014 to 14.11.2014: Relay hunger strike at Circle/SSA HQs.


We sincerely hope that BSNL Management will listen to the burning issues of the Executives and resolve them without further delay. If the issues are not resolved, then we have to go ahead with the agitation programmes as declared and even to further intensify the agitation by 15th December, 2014 till the issues are resolved.   

Make extensive preparations by conducting Branch/ SSA level meetings and meeting each and every Executive one by one and make them to join the struggle.

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.

CHQ leaders and activists on indefinite fast from 10.09.2014 at BSNLCO:

Comrades, even after the intervention and concrete assurances of CMD/BSNL, CGMT/Kerala going ahead with vindictive actions. Simply ignoring the assurances given by CMD/BSNL on 04.09.2014, CGMT is going ahead with vindictive transfer and postings even on 06.09.2014 which we cannot tolerate further. We are concerned about the services in one of the most potential Circle which we are proud of, but CGMT is least bothered about the services, its growth, which we are witnessing during the last one year. He systematically destroying the Circle by dismantling the systems and monitoring mechanisms prevailed in the Circle.

First time in the history of Kerala, net broadband connections shown an alarming figure of (-)12,689 with disconnection of 55,008 and net landline (-)70,476 from 01.04.2014 to 30.08.2014, fault rates are about 50,000 every day but CGMT is not concerned about the services or closures.


On this background, the CS and CHQ office bearers meeting discussed the issue in detail. It was decided to go for agitation at all India level. As a first step, CHQ office bearers and activists starting indefinite fast at BSNLCO from 10.09.2014 demanding implementation of all the commitments given by CGMT/Kerala, withdrawal of all vindictive actions like transfers, die-non during leave period for about 1300 Executives, charge sheets to CS, C/Treasurer, SSA Presidents etc “for participating in the hunger strike” etc. Other Circles to make preparations to join the agitations on a short notice.

Meeting with CMD/BSNL: GS, President and Com George Varghese, CS/Kerala met Sri A. N. Rai, CMD/BSNL on 04.09.2014 and discussed the following issues:

a)  Implementing the written assurances given by CGMT/Kerala as part of settlement of the agitation: Assn informed CMD/BSNL that the agitations are called off after the intervention of BSNLCO and the assurances given by CMD. Further written assurances were given by CGMT/Kerala on various demands and assured that there will be no vindictive actions. However after the agitation, none of the assurances implemented. Instead of that CGMT started a series of vindictive actions like transferring of office-bearers and activists, implementing dies-non for the sanctioned leave period etc etc. Now one month passed and the Executives are getting agitated over the delay in implementation of the commitments. CMD assured again that he is aware of the facts and GM(SR) already briefed the situation in the morning. CMD informed that he already spoken to CGMT in the morning and directed to implement the commitments and clarifications sought from BSNLCO is will be given in a couple of days. On vindictive actions like transfers, he will speak to CGMT again.

b) Modifications/amendments in the Recognition Rules for Executives Association: GS requested to make necessary amendments like a) some mechanism of settlement of issues which make both sides binding, b) No of office-bearers at Circle level, c) three tier system at Metro Circles and d) collection of fund other than subscription. CMD agreed that the issues will be re-examined by the new Committee.

Meeting with GM(Estt): GS, President and Com George Varghese, CS/Kerala met Sri R. K. Goyal, GM(Estt) on 04.09.2014 and discussed the following issues:

a)   FR -35 restriction on officiating promotion to AD (OL)—case of Com Sangeetha Goyal ACS/Delhi Circle: Assn pointed out that the recent clarification issued by BSNLCO imposing FR-35 restriction on Officiating promotion to AD(OL) post from 1998 is wrong as the official satisfies all the eligibility conditions at the time of promotion. After discussion, GM(Estt) assured that the issue will be reviewed in view of the submissions made by the Association.

b)  Delay in approval of JTO RR 2014: Due to the delay the regularization of officiating JTOs and next LICE from TTA to JTO is delayed. GM(Estt) informed that the issues related to Executives not considered as the HR plan is not submitted to the BSNL Board.

c)   Special JTO rect for NE region, J&K and other shortage Circles: GM(Estt) told that another TTA rect is proposed and TTA rect will give more candidates from the local areas than the JTO rect and it will be the better option. Assn suggested to consider JTO rect to the Circles where sufficient no of eligible TTAs are not available for appearing in the LICE.

Rule 8 transfer of JTOs: Large no of JTOs completed more than 7 to 10 years are waiting for their Rule -8 transfers especially from WB, NE Circles, KTK, J&K etc including lady JTOs. Special attention is required to send these JTOs to their home Circles at the earliest. GM(Estt) informed that large no of Rule 8 cases were settled during LICE promotion as demanded by the Assn and remaining cases also will be considered.
