Murder of Democracy in BSNL - Hand in glove arrangement of SR section with the proclaimed corners

Recently SR section issued two letters from their section - one seeking feedback of associations wrt freezing the membership window from 15th December 2019 and another conveying decision to freeze the current membership window. In the meanwhile, one of the executive associations was filling its website by RTIs obtained on the membership count. The same association also went to lodge its formal complaint of granting of agenda meeting to AIGETOA on priority and have been running pillar to post to show the membership count of AIGETOA to all parts of BSNL management stating that AIGETOA does not represent the BSNL Recruits and it is in fact they who represent majority of BSNL Recruits. Our simple submission on this was a question that how many times these so called recognised ones have come to you to discuss about the Pay, Pension and Promotion related issues of BSNL Recruits. The question itself made it clear who is the real representative of BSNL Recruits.

It is a well known fact that with end of three years recognition period without resolving any issue of BSNL Recruits, huge migration from these executive associations was anticipated and the ever increasing acceptance of AIGETOA amongst the executives in General and BSNL recruits in particular was adding further to their worry. So again SR cell and GM (SR) in particular came to their rescue through aforesaid letter announcing stoppage of change of membership from one association to other in the pre-designated window of 16th December-15th January. All of the sudden, GM SR realised that this membership change window results in bad blood amongst executives and will result in hampering the works of orgnisation. So taking the shelter of VRS process, he moved a proposal to freeze the membership window so that churning out in Membership of the recognised corners can be avoided. Symbiotic relationship - is a popular term in Biology which means benefit to each other. All these three years, this bad blood was acceptable to GM SR and suddenly after the end of recognition, he realised and accordingly issued a dictat that there will not be any membership change window in the ongoing period which is nothing but assualt on the democratic rights of Executives. So, the change of pre-defined condition before next membership verification is murder of democratic value & complete biasness towards the previous majority and support association which we strongly condemn and demand immediate roll back.

The MV Process was deferred and now even after the period of recognition is over, GM SR has not yet issued any letter for revocation of facilities granted to recognised and support association, thereby increasing their recognition period beyond three years which is illegal, arbitrary and bad in law. We fail to understand this sudden upsurge of love by GM (SR) for the recognised and support association, which prevented him to not issue the very basic letter of withdrawing the recognition of these two associations on completion of their tenure of three years on 12th December, 2019 as notified by SR Section earlier itself vide L. No. BSNL/20-6/SR/2019 on 13th December, 2016.

It's not new that time and again authorities have shown their love for these groups who put all obstacles in the success of BSNL Revival process. AIGETOA has been an avid supporter of the BSNL Revival Process and measures like VRS, rolling back the retirement age to 58 and perhaps it is paying the price for supporting the endeavours of government for BSNL Revival Process. It is now ample clear that people like him want those to flourish in BSNL who have put all the obtacles in the successful implementation of Revival Process.

Anyhow what GM (SR) does considering his prerogative, what management does it as their right, the association will also come up with what it has in their hands i.e. to respond to the situation through organisational means! We have been restraining ourselves keeping in view the cirtical scenario in which our orgnisation is placed in. However, now when it is quite clear that HR managers are least bothered about the prevailing situation and they are in fact provoking executives (BR in particular) by denying them their due rights of promotion, Pay and Pension without any substanatial reasons, it is high time that we also forget the cooperating attitude and launch an all out offensive for realisation of our rights. All the Circle Secretaries and office bearers are requsted to mobilise their cadre and be ready to respond to call of CHQ on the shortest possible time.

We hope that the management will take corrective action and stop patronising those, who have been putting roadblocks to the success of the revival package. We sincerely hope that the management will at least now realise collective strength of 24000 BSNL Recruits amongst the left out 31000 executives Post VRS and resolve their long pending issues of this group who have till now kept itself dedicated to the growth and survival of BSNL and have exercised restraint. We think that management will not provoke its executives to adopt the path of struggle and hence will come up with corrective action.

AIGETOA extends its good wishes to all employees on the closing time of BSNL VRS Scheme 2019

AIGETOA extends its good wishes to both set of employees; those who will continue their testing journey with BSNL and to those also who opted for VRS Scheme 2019. It is learnt that total 78569 employees have finally opted for VRS. We believe that both set of employees have contributed for upcoming challenges for growth and revival of BSNL. Those opted VRS have served this department and erstwhile DoT in their prime time and now contributing by choosing VRS scheme to give way for much awaited Revival of BSNL. We acknowledge their long journey & contribution to this department and assure that we will always be available for them as BSNL Parivar.

We also appreciate to all those who are going to remain in BSNL to serve this mother organisation in challenging time. We just want to highlight the famous proverb, "When the going gets tough, only the tough gets going". So, let's come together, move together, grow together and grow BSNL together.

We are of the firm opinion that we will turn around the fortune of this company with our honest and dedicated approach. It is further informed that any adventurism with the future of this company anymore should not be accepted and all of us will have to shed away the negativity and focus ourselves on the revival and growth of the BSNL. We request each and every employee to own this company and simultaneously request the management to come out with concrete and sincere plan/recourse to best utilize the one time opportunity offered by the Government of India to revive this strategic asset of the Nation i.e. BSNL. We will also come up with suggestion and submit to the management for consideration as discussed.

At the same time, we will request the respected CMD, Director (HR) and other senior officers of HR wing to resolve the long pending HR issues of the executives to bring peace and tranquility to the company. We all know that peace, harmony and motivation are paramount factors for growth and development of any organisation. The BSNL also needs to work genuinely in this direction to achieve the desired goal of the government to flourish BSNL once again.
