GS writes to CMD, BSNL: Fundamental and inescapable responsibility of the concerned officers to fully protect the promotion of employees promoted by them. Tendency to demote employees on the pretext of court judgments undesirable, reflecting insensitivity and lack of responsibility. On flimsy grounds to implement Hon Allahabad High Court Judgment, reported efforts of CGM/UP(W) to demote JTOs (some are now SDEs) having passed the LDCE for recruitment of JTOs under 15% quota held in 2001 by UP (West) Circle illegal and unwarranted. Kind personal intervention solicited to safeguard legitimate promotion of 73 JTOs promoted as per the relaxation/clarification issued by BSNLCO on 10.03.2003 and 22.07.2003.

Employees put BSNL on Fire of Struggle
As per the initial reports from A&N, AS, AP, BR, CHTD, CHG, CTD, GUJ, HP,  KTK, KRL,MH, MP, NTR, RAJ, OR, JKD, J&K, PB, TN, UPE, UPW and WB Circles, almost 100% of the employees are participating in the strike today. The response from all over the country is overwhelming. All the Circles reported that more employees joined the strike today which shows that the correct message has reached to all the employees.
The official figure for yesterday was 87% even after Circles like CGM/NTR forged the official figure and send wrong report to BSNLCO when all the equipments rooms and offices in NTR remain locked. Senior officers admitted that if the official figure is 87%, then the actual figure will be more than 97%.
The massive participation shows the concern of the employees on the future of the company and their commitment to revive the company. The message is loud and clear. Whether the managers in BSNL and the babus in DoT listening to that? It will be known in the coming days. Otherwise we have to make them to listen…….
Congratulation to all our CSs, office bearers and activists at all levels, CSs and activists of various Unions and Assns who worked day and night to make the 2 day strike a grand success. Above all, Central HQs salute the real fighters, our comrades at grass root level, who made this strike 100% successful.

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.
The conference was unique one by participation of members and deliberations. In the conference Com P. K. Sirothiya, Com Ajay Trivedi, Com C. L. Yadav, Com C. P. Pandey, Com D. P. Tripathi and Com Amit Katiyar were elected unanimously as C/President, C/Secretary, C/Treasurer and CWC members. CHQ wish the new Circle body all the success.

The Circle executive meeting of SNEA Karnataka was held at Hubli on 5th and 6th April 2015. Com B S Venkateshmurthy Circle President presided over the meeting. The deliberations of the meeting were held in the Conference Hall of the SANCHAR COMPLEX, GM office Hubli. CS Com S B Nagavi and Com C R Suresh Kumar Circle Treasurer presented the reports. The end resolution of the discussion was that the top management has failed to provide the alternative mechanisms; like AMC for power plants, AC units, Engine Alternators and proper labour work force to speedily attend the cable faults, emergent major cable breakdowns due to massive road development works by other agencies, the changed technological requirements and acute shortage of the support staff in the field being a real fact on board. The CEC urged to impress upon the CGMT and CHQ to come out with a permanent solution to these vital issues to ensure the quality of service and the unbearable work stress on the field officers. The circle office bearers, Com M S Hiremugadur ACS, Com M H Gombi ACS, Com Govind Gudi COS, Com Quraishi AS, Com A Savitha VP have also given their inputs to the house on various issues pertaining to the agenda. Com S A Bellubbi DE(LA) mobile services has given the detailed inputs on the philosophy to be followed in managing the GSM networks and watch and ward of the BTSs.

SEMINAR ON THE QUALITY OF SERVICE IN BSNL was held in the Municipal Employees Meeting hall on 6th April 2015 in a colorful environment with the excellent arrangement by Hubli comrades. Com W Sheshagiri Rao, Veteran leader, Com K Sebastin, General Secretry SNEA CHQ, Com Padmanabha Rao JSS CHQ, Com Pandurang Nayak AGS HQ, Shri R K Misraji CGMT Karnataka Circle, Shri Vivek Jaiswal GM Hulbli were the prominant speakers as the Guests of the meeting.

Com K Sebastin, General Secretary SNEA CHQ while addressing the open session has explained the issue relating to the cash flow, the loans taken for the development works and the money that has earned by such development works. GS also focussed on the Forum Strike Programme and appealed to make 21st and 22nd April 2015 strike 100% successful and 100% participation of each and every employee and executive. Then only way we can draw the attention of the DOT as well as the GoI  on the problems faced by us and the discrimination being forced on us by the vested interest who are in favour of the private operators is by making the agitation programme 100% success. SNEA is also on the agitation path in resepect of our cadre demands like standard pay scale etc.

Our Joint Secretary South Com Padmnabha Rao, participated in the seminar and addressed that the success of the ongoing agitation programme of the Joint Forum needs to be taken very seriously and all out effort must be made by the activists of SNEA in this regard.

Our beloved veteran leader Com W Sheshagiri Rao, participated, addressed and graced the occasion.

Meeting with CMD/BSNL: CHQ President, AGS, Com Dahiya and CS/BSNL CO, Com Khan,  met CMD and elaborately discussed the sinister move initiated by CGM/UP(W) suggesting reversion of 73 JTOs. The ulterior motives of CGM/UP(W) are well known. However, we strongly pleaded with CMD to take a very holistic and sympathetic  view of the entire issue and find out ways to defeat the dubious designs of CGM/UP(W) to revert 73 JTOs. We brought to the notice of CMD how in the past 4000 posts of TES Gr B were created in 1994 in DOT to avoid reversion of about 600 TES Gr B officers. CMD after a very careful audience assured that he would try to resolve the issue after having a detailed examination and advised us to brief Director(HR) also on this issue.

07-04-2015

Meeting with Diretor(HR): CHQ President, AGS, Com Dahiya and CS/BSNL Co, Com Khan, met Director(HR) and discussed following issues.
A) Filing of SLP in Honble Supreme Court by BSNL against the stay granted by Ernakulam High Court on JTO to TES Gr B promotion:
We strongly pleaded that BSNL should immediately file an SLP in Honble Supreme Court to vacate the stay granted by Ernakulam High Court on JTO to TES Gr B promotion. We informed Director(HR) that there are very strong and justified grounds for BSNL to file SLP against interim order of Ernakulam High Court in view of judgments given by CAT Chennai and CAT Ernakulam comprehensively dismissing the petitions challenging the promotion from JTO to TES Gr on merits. The grounds cited in Ernakulam High Court challenging JTO to TES Gr B promotion are more or less the same that were raised in CAT Chennai and CAT Ernakulam. We also informed Director(HR) that BSNL Management cannot sit as a silent spectator in view of the fact that JTOs are waiting for more than 20- years for their first promotion and must act very swiftly to ensure that stay granted by Ernakulam High Court is vacated is vacated at the earliest. Director(HR) was also informed that this Association is also filing SLP in Supreme Court against the stay granted by Ernakulam High Court. After having been apprised of all the facts, Director(HR) assured that he would discuss immediately the issue with concerned officers and whatever legal action is needed to be taken to facilitate holding of DPC from JTO to TES Gr B would surely be taken.
B) Restoration of trade union facilities withdrawn after notification of membership verification process We once again reminded Director(HR) about the discussions we have had with him on this issue and his assurance that he would consider restoration of trade union facilities withdrawn after notification of verification process. We informed him that despite his assurances no further action has been taken in this regard. Director(HR) assured that he would initiate action on this issue immediately.
C) Reversion of 73 JTOs of UP(W) : We apprised Director(HR) on this issue on the same lines we apprised CMD and sought his immediate intervention to ensure that such a dangerous situation does not arise. Director(HR) assured that he would try to take a very sympathetic view of the whole after examining it in detail.

Editorial:

E1 scale for JTOs and E2 for SDEs?

No promotion even after twenty years! 

Is BSNL Management taking us back to the DoT era of 1980s?

The pay scale of JEs (now JTO) during 1980s was less than that of the selection Grade RSA/PI and that of the JAOs. Hardly 150 to 200 JEs were getting promotion as AEs (now SDE) in an year during that period. For the first promotion, JEs has to wait for 20 to 25 years! Thousands of JEs, even direct recruits, retired without a single promotion as AE. This was the situation in DoT during the 1980s.

The situation has drastically changed during the last three decades just because of the continuous struggle by the Association. All the struggles launched by the Association were astounding successes due to the unity among the officers. The pay scale of JEs was revised upwards thrice, first in 1986, next in 1996 and then again in 2000. External agencies like National Productivity council (NPC) in 1986 and 1996 made sweeping recommendations for upward revision of pay scales after making extensive studies on the strategic importance of this cadre. In 1996, NPC recommended the elevation of the cadre from Group “C” to Group “B” Gazetted along with the pay rise. Both recommendations were accepted and accordingly V CPC recommended upgraded pay scales and Group “B” Gazetted status to JTO cadre. Since 1990, we have witnessed thousands of JTOs being promoted as SDEs.

Recognition of this basic cadre in terms of pay scales and status motivated the entire cadres which in turn contributed towards the growth in Telecom sector. During 1990s and early 2000s, we had seen unprecedented growth in the Telecom sector, in DoT. This was definitely the contribution of the highly motivated employees of DoT and BSNL during that period.

Now, in BSNL, things are started moving in the reverse direction. The pay scales of JTOs and SDEs due for revision from 01.01.2007 has not been finalised so far under the pretext of profitability eventhough the company was making huge profits at that point of time. From 2012 onwards the management has been constantly assuring us of E2, E3 scales if DoT and DPE did not agree to intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A. Now, it appears that the management has more or less made up its mind to demote the backbone of the company, JTO/JAO and SDE/AO to E1 and E2 scales. In the name of litigations, promotions are not at all taking place in SDE, DE and DGM cadres. Litigations are due to the flaws in the RRs or recruitment/promotion processes, not due to the fault of employees. This cannot be an excuse for the management for denying the promotions for years together. In the same company where equal promotional opportunity is expected for all the cadres, the disparity in promotions are so much, in one cadre, Executives have to wait for 20 to 25 years for a promotion while in some other equivalent cadres in other wings promotions are effected just within 5 years. In the present situation, there is no scope for any promotions in the near future at least for another two years in most of the cadres. Anticipating this situation, the Association was demanding a switch over to Time Bound Functional promotions which is also a part of the terms and conditions for absorption. The consultant also recommended the same. But there is no response at all.  There are other serious issues also to be addressed.

The demoralization and de-motivation among the executives reached alarming proportions as very serious issues related to pay scales and promotion, the only motivational aspect available in the company are not getting addressed for years together whatever be the reason. Executives can contribute towards growth of the company provided they are motivated. Therefore, these issues are to be addressed without any delay while giving equal importance to issues related to policies and procurement.

It is at this juncture that we are compelled to serve notice even when a strike notice is already given under the banner of Forum on policy and expansion related issues. We cannot be a simple spectator to what is happening to the cadre as we are the only ones who fought for the cadre, fought for the upliftment of the cadre and continue to fight for that. Let all of us be united as in 1980s and 1990s so that nobody can break us. We will end this journey only when the dignity of the cadre is protected and the issues are comprehensively addressed to our satisfaction. We appeal to all the Executives to join hands in this struggle for the prestige, nay, the existence of the cadre.
