UPDATES ON MEETING WITH PS TO HON MOSC

 

Meeting with PS to Hon MoSC:

PS to Hon MOSC called the BSNL Management and Jt Forum for a combined meeting on the standard pay scales issue. DoT earlier rejected the BSNL proposal of E2 and E3 scales and approved E1 and E2 scales, demoting the basic cadres of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO equivalent. DoT had taken a stand that E1A and E2A scales were approved only for the absorbed Executives and not for new rects. For BSNL directly rect employees or those who got promotion after 01.10.2000, E1 and E2 scales are applicable.

Initially management had discussions with Shri Nitheswar Kumar, IAS and PS to MoSC and explained the issues in detail for about 20 minutes. DIR(HR), PGM(Estt) and DGM(Estt) participated in the discussion. BSNL explained to the PS that E1A and E2A pay scales were approved for all the Executives w.e.f 01.10.2000, irrespective of absorbed or promoted or new recruitment. On 2nd PRC implementation, BSNL proposed replacement scales for E1A and E2A, initially. This was rejected by DoT and DPE in 2011 and 2014. Subsequently BSNL proposed E1A to E2 and E2A to E3 pay scales with cascading effect. There is no proposal from BSNL for lowering the pay scales to E1 and E2. Earlier proposal of BSNL demanding cascading effect is withdrawn now and BSNL proposal is only E2 and E3 scales. While doing so, the basic features of EPP will be protected, BSNL told the PS. Lowering the pay scales will affect retention of existing talent and recruitment also. It created huge unrest in the company. The PO issued by DoT to be reconsidered, and BSNL proposal of E2 and E3 scales w/o cascading effect is to be approved, BSNL demanded.

After the presentation by BSNL, PS called JF for combined meeting along with management. JF told PS that about 42000 Executives working in JTO/JAO, SDE/AO equivalent cadres demoted by the lowering of pay scales to E1 and E2. About 15000 Executives recruited after 01.01.2007 facing a reduction in pay to the tune of Rs 10,000 per month. Our demand is to revise E1A and E2A scales with E2 and E3 scales respectively w.e.f 01.01.2007. There is no proposal of E1 and E2 scales from BSNL. The financial implications are bare minimum, just 44 Cr per annum. On financial implications, PS commented that it is a very small amount and it is not an issue at all.

The discussions were very positive and PS is very much convinced on the issue and assured positive action. He further directed BSNL management to explain the issue to the new Secretary also as Secretary is having a big role to play. Then take the JF also for the meeting with Secretary.

THE NEXT PHASE OF AGITATION PROGRAMS FROM 29.05.2017 IS POSTPONED TO 27.06.2017

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.

JF Forum leaders met CMD, BSNL and DIR(HR) and held discussions on the issues and reviewed the developments.

PS to MOSC called the JF and BSNL management for discussion on Monday, 29.05.2017 on the BSNL proposal of E2 and E3 pay scales. BSNL will be represented by DIR(HR) and PGM(Estt).
DoT sought some clarifications on 7 to 8 points on BSNL proposal of E2 and E3 dated 01.05.2017 mainly on the following points:
a) Affordability of the proposal as BSNL is making huge losses in 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16.
b) Details of the rect made after 01.01.2007 onwards.
c) Cascading proposal of BSNL. Whether it stands withdrawn or not as per the latest proposal?
d) Impact on existing EPP.

Same time, AIGETOA Kerala Office Bearers and Petitioners of DoPT case at Hon. High Court of Kerala had been invited to CO, New Delhi by management for discussion on the issues. Detailed discussions held with Pers section in the presence of CHQ office bearers of both SNEA and AIGETOA. All the parties agreed to end the deadlock and facilitate issuing promotions to all the available vacancies. Seniority will be decided as per the outcome of court cases.

The progress in receipt of VCs for JTO to SDE promotion from circles is not at all encouraging and district secretaries are directed to ensure that VC reaches to Circle Office positively by next weekend.

Indefinite Relay Hunger Strike and Work According to Rule from 29.05.2017

The agitation programs deferred till 28.05.2017 will restart on 29.05.2017 as there are not much improvement in DoT on the standard pay scale issues. The Officers in DoT is not serious to correct the mistake even though BSNL management has taken a positive stand on E2 and E3 scales.

Similarly for the issues pertaining to BSNL, not much progress has been made except for some movement of files and lining up the action plan on the issues. So we have to resume the agitation programs from where we left with much more vigour and commitment.

Instead of intervening in the matter and resolving the issues, management is busy in taking vindictive actions one by one. Even they want to silence the employees through the intervention of court, charge sheets, dies-non etc etc.

Comrades, through very tough agitation only we can reverse the DoT decision and resolve the burning HR issues. Make all out preparations and gear up for the Indefinite Relay Hunger Strike and Work According to Rule from 29.05.2017.

UPDATES ON MEETING WITH CMD BSNL

JF leaders met CMD, BSNL and made strong protest against the various disciplinary actions initiated against JF leaders and wage cuts initiated by management and warned that this will only spoil the cordial relations between the management and the employees and provoke the Executives who are already agitated. Management is adding fuel into the fire by such actions. Instead of disciplinary actions, management should try to stop the agitation by addressing the issues. Every employee is having the right to protest and management is trying to impose ban on such rights through court interventions also. We will take all steps to protect the interest of the employees and their rights. It is the primary responsibility of the management to maintain cordial relation between the employees and the management for the growth of BSNL.

JF leaders further discussed about the BSNL proposal for reviewing the PO issued by DoT and approving E2 and E3 pay scales alone as proposed by BSNL.

CMD informed that he had discussed the matter again with PS to Hon MOSC as MOSC is the final authority to decide the matter. MOSC office is more or less convinced on the matter and PS to MOSC will call the JF for the meeting shortly and DIR(HR) will be directed to coordinate for the meeting. CMD briefed the matter to new Secretary, DoT Smt Aruna Sundararajan (additional charge) also. Initially as usual, Secretary was reluctant to intervene in the matter till regular incumbent joins. However CMD appraised the urgency in the matter and sought her intervention to resolve the issue immediately.

Indefinite Relay Hunger Strike and Work According to Rule from 29.05.2017:

The agitation programs deferred till 28.05.2017 will restart on 29.05.2017 as there are not much improvement in DoT on the standard pay scale issues. The DO letter from CMD/BSNL is just processed but still pending with Jt Sec(A)/DoT for more than one week. Officers in DoT is not serious to correct the mistake even though BSNL management has taken a positive stand on E2 and E3 scales.

Similarly for the issues pertaining to BSNL, not much progress has been made except for some movement of files and lining up the action plan on the issues. So we have to resume the agitation programs from where we left.

Unfortunately some Assn is playing very negative role in this regard simply ignoring the larger interest of the cadre. This has exposed them and given everybody the answer to the question why they backed out from the agitation under the banner of JF. Their stand will really help the AS(T) and other officers in DoT who are working overtime to demote the cadres to E1 and E2. Approach each and every Executive and explain the negative campaign by the Assn against E2 and E3. Hurdles are being created in the resolutions of Pay, Promotion and Pension issues by engaging and demoralizing the officers dealing with issues in baseless allegations. All this is being done just with the intent of derailing the settlement of issues. However, ignoring such mindset, let us all concentrate on the program right now and make each executive of BSNL to join the agitation from 29.05.2017. It is our responsibility to convince the members of other Assn, especially thousands of JAOs, AOs etc who are facing demotion and make them to join the agitation.

 Comrades, through very tough agitation only we can reverse the DoT decision and resolve the burning HR issues. Make all preparations by conducting emergency combined general body meeting of the JF at Branch/SSA level in the remaining few days and gear up for the Indefinite Relay Hunger Strike and Work according to Rule from 29.05.2017.Combined Executive Committee meeting at SSA/Circle level also should be convened at the earliest, even during the agitation for making the agitation programmes successful.
