Meeting with GM (HR/Admin), O/o CGMT BSNL Kerala

Our CS met GM ( HR/Admin), Circle office and discussed about recent transfer orders and other communications from administration side.

We expressed our gratitude to administration to effect the inter BA transfer orders as assured by CGMT & GM HR to us. We have pointed some missing cases and corrections, on which GM agreed to consider accordingly. It was also informed us that the inter BA long standing transfers will not be there this time further till any restructuring is effected by corporate office.

The recent communication on redeployment of executives in BA level was discussed and we asked about the rationale in distribution of various posts. It was intimated that the letter is only a draft and Field / BAs apprehensions will be taken care of before finalisation. A similar kind of draft will be there in CM Segment too. This is for a stop gap arrangement till corporate office finalise the restructuring. GM suggested that our association may share the views to management so that refinements on redeployment can be done through.

Further our CS informed about the ambiguity in field units with regard to a communication from Circle office stating working of administrative / other offices. It was clarified that the letter was issued to restrict the official working days to 5 day pattern during this pandemic season.The guidelines from BSNL Corporate office and GoI stand as such with regard to lockdown situation with regard to functioning of various offices / field duties. We are supposed to extend support on essential services category and Comply with GoI / BSNL directions.

DRAWN STRUGGLE IS INEVITABLE TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTFUL DUES AND RIGHTFUL VOICE - START PREPARING FOR BIG FIGHT AHEAD

Friends,

The Post-VRS scenario is no better than Pre-VRS scenario for BSNL Recruits in BSNL seeing the partisan behaviour of management towards your Rightful Dues and Rightful Voice. It seems that some sections in the BSNL management is hell bent to derail peaceful atmosphere of the company and giving you more reason to revolt than to work for betterment of the company. We restrained ourselves from getting into any organisational activities since last one and half years even in the most unfortunate time and denial in the larger interest. But when your existence will be challenged again and again, even when you account for more than 70% of total executive's strength in post VRS, we are bound to react and react vigorously and decisively. We have fought several struggles in past against discrimination and have enough power to once again show our inherited command to defy injustice and oppression. So, all of you are requested to start preparing for decisive struggle against suppression of your voice, challenge to your existence and hollow assurance for settlement of your long drawn genuine HR Issues.

Yesterday, SR Cell issued an order denying the very basic right of your voice and presence in the company by ignoring AIGETOA out rightly and favouring SNEA and AIBSNLEA by extending illegitimate facility for another three months (till 12th Jun 2020), whose due recognition period of three years has already ended on 12th Dec, 2019 as per BSNL REA Rule-2014. Secondly, Restructuring Cell came out with a letter inviting only SNEA and AIBSNLEA from association side as 1st and 2nd Majority Association for an all important proposed meeting on the "Implementation of BSNL Revival Plan and Restructuring in BSNL post VRS" to be held on 18th March, 2020 under chairmanship of the CMD BSNL.

Click here for the SR Letter

Click here for the Restructuring Letter

It important to note here that in the post VRS scenario, AIGETOA has already reached to 2nd Position in respect of total membership count and AIBSNLEA is standing at 3rd Position. This situation exists; when membership changeover window of Dec-Jan was not opened even after our repeated request else you might have reached to the 1st Position. In this condition, non-extending of at par facility to AIGETOA and giving extension to SNEA/AIBSNLEA clearly shows biased attitude of the SR Cell, New Delhi. It seems that management also doesn't want your voice to be heard while finalizing All Important Restructuring Plan of BSNL, which is going to be a key decision in the HR History of BSNL. Hence, your voice is being flattened and you are being marginalised even after reaching 2nd Position in the count and favour is being extended to those who speak in-tune with management.

The ways and methods adopted by HR group and BSNL management gives us enough reasons to believe that something is cooking up and perhaps AIGETOA does not fit in their scheme of things else there should not be any reason to sideline AIGETOA on important policy matters, who is the highest stake holder in post VRS scene. It has come to our notice that M/s Deloitte has submitted its report with regard to manpower plan and it is learnt that there is direction to reduce the posts drastically even to the extent which many would not have thought even in his worst imaginations. It is understood that other associations are becoming party to this decision as their much cherished dream of issuance of AGM to DGM (Adhoc) promotion has been accomplished. If BSNL Recruits do not wake up now, the day is not very far away, when all the BRs will be forced to retire in the cadre of SDE/AO without pay, pension and further promotions. With AIGETOA in picture, it was not easy to get the nod of Unions/Associations on proposed reorganisation plan of BSNL and that may be the key to all such actions.

The website of the messiah association is also burning proof of our interpretations as they simply got the focus of BSNL Recruits shifted to EPF case in Hon'ble Supreme Court after the promotion of DGM (Adhoc), while talks of HR issues have ceased to exist in their website. We are fully prepared to tackle their malacious designs, come what may.. We will not let BRs be made subject to this injustice and we are ready to fight till our last breathe.....

Wake Up Call Dear BSNL Recruits.....It's a wakeup call for all of us.. Either wake up or be ready to be ruined.

Today, Team AIGETOA has registered our STRONG PROTEST to the GM (SR) and clearly apprised him that the we are not going to be remain silent if our concern on these two letters are not addressed. Director (HR) due to his prior engagements at BSNL CO and DoT could not meet but he has been apprised of the unrest and partisan behaviour of HR group. We have given them clear timeline to take the corrective action with regard to this issue as well as conclusive decision on other HR issues as per commitment given in the meeting with Director (HR). If the corrective as well as conclusive action is not taken, AIGETOA is all prepared to rewrite history once again.

The management has to decide whether they want BSNL Recruits to devote their energy in the work place or on the street to fight for their legitimate voice and dues. In the mean time, Secretary (DoT), CMD and Director (HR) BSNL has been sent a SoS letter regarding our serious concern as mentioned above and demanded its immediate redresser.
