BSNL Employees Joint Forum Agitation

Urgent attention of all SSA Team...

If joint meeting not held so far, convene Joint Forum meeting at SSA level urgently and form Core committees at SSA level to monitor the agitation programs. Start combined campaign at all the levels.

The issues are very complex and through toughest struggle only we can have breakthrough. Almost 80% of the Executives (approx 40,000) are JTO/JAOs or SDE/AOs and the pay scale of these cadres lowered to E1 and E2. The pay scale of more than 40,000 Executives working as JTO/JAO, SDE/AO equivalent lowered to E1 and E2. Other HR issues like promotions, Superannuation benefits, first TB promotions, pay parity, E1A and E2A for Civil/Elect/Arch/TF/PA/ PS etc, scrapping of DGM and MT RRs etc are the need of the hour and a very tough struggle is needed ahead. If we think that the issues will be resolved sitting in the comfort of the offices, then we are simply befooling ourselves. Each one of us shall have to be part of this program with 100% commitment and without any apprehensions in mind. 

Toughest agitational programmes are announced in a short notice. The participation, involvement and the impact of this struggle will decide our destiny. So make all out preparations to face any challenge.
From 25th to 27th 72 hours relay hunger strike (day and night) will be the first programme. List of Executives participating the Hunger strike may be prepared in advance. All the office bearers should apply leave for four days immediately and all the executives should ensure hundred percent participation.
Mass Casual Leave on 28.04.2017 by all the Executives . It requires massive campaign. Make sure that 100% joint forum members and other supporters also are submitting CL applications for 28.04.2017. We should ensure that each and every Executive who cares for the issues should apply leave.
From 1st May onwards, agitation programmes will be intensified. Indefinite Relay Hunger Strike and Work According to Rule will be starting from 01.05.2017.
Join the programs enmasse and make the programs a big success.
Success of this struggle will lead to resolution of the issues. It is going to decide our future. It is going to decide the implementation of Pay, Promotion and Pensionary Benefits for all the BSNL Executives for ever.
Circle level Joint Forum meeting was convened at Trivandrum on 17/4/2017. Circle Secretaries and other leaders of SNEA and AIGETOA participated in the meeting and formulated strategy for the upcoming agitational programmes. Joint Forum is trying its best to request support and participation from all Associations and Unions of BSNL.
