The next phase of agitation programs of Indefinite Relay Hunger Strike and Work According to Rules from 29.05.2017 is postponed to 27.06.2017.

As Management has resorted to repressive methods for suppressing the voice of the Executives for the resolution of genuine HR issues by taking vindictive actions like dies-non, issuing Show Cause Notices and Charge sheet to JF leaders and other coercive methods to restrain our right for protest, Joint Forum has decided to launch strong protest against such vindictive actions by holding two days massive Dharna on 1st and 2nd June 2017. Discussions are held with the non-executive unions also and it is agreed that further agitation program will be held jointly with non-executive unions under the banner of Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations to protest against the oppressive actions taken by management.
For the effective implementation of the next phase of agitation programs of Indefinite Relay Hunger Strike and Work According to Rules, it is decided to hold a Joint meeting of CSs and CHQ Office bearers of the JF on 17th and 18th June, 2017. Venue will be announced shortly. Before the joint meeting of CS/CHQ office bearers, all Circles should complete the joint Circle Executive Committee meetings. GSs/CHQ office bearers of the Associations will try to attend the CEC meetings as far as possible. The dates of CEC meetings should be intimated to CHQ by Monday. Otherwise the dates will be finalized and announced by CHQ. Similarly joint SSA meetings also to be held before the CS meeting.

All the preparations and strategies are to be worked out for the successful implementation of Work According to Rules from 27.06.2017.
