Organise the 3rd day strike most effectively- AUAB calls on the employees.

The AUAB conducted it’s review meeting today evening. General Secretaries and senior office bearers of the constituents of the AUAB participated in the meeting. The meeting reviewed the 2nd day strike that has taken place in various circles. The meeting expressed it’s satisfaction that the 2nd day strike was very successful. In fact, in some circles, the strike percentage has improved, compared to the 1st day strike. The meeting also took serious note of the letter issued by the Corporate Office, threatening to take action under FR 17A.

The meeting resolved to inform the employees that, this attempt of the Management would be stiffly resisted by the AUAB. The meeting also took note of the strike particulars of the various circles, circulated by the Corporate Office. The figures contained factually incorrect details.

Finally, the meeting decided to take all out efforts to organise the 3rd day strike more effectively.

19-02-2019:CHQ News

Strike continues with the same intensity for the 2nd Day.

The 2nd day strike of the Executives and Non-Executives in BSNL is going on as successfully as it was held on the 1st Day. Encouraging reports are coming from throughout the country. Demonstrations are being organised in each and every place, condemning the government for not allotting 4G spectrum to BSNL, for creating road-blocks in the financial revival of BSNL and also for not settling the 3rd Pay Revision. AIBSNLEA heartily congratulates all the comrades and requests to organise tomorrow’s strike also in the same intensity.

First day strike a roaring success - AUAB congratulates the employees. 
The AUAB has heartily congratulated the Non-Executives and Executives of BSNL, for making the 1st day strike a roaring success. In it’s meeting held at 15:30 hrs today, the AUAB reviewed the 1st day strike. General Secretaries and senior office bearers of all the constituents of the AUAB attended. As per the report received from circles, the 1st day strike is near total. It is also observed that the strike is taking place in a totally peaceful manner. On one side, in it’s statement issued through the Press Information Bureau late last evening, the DoT had stated that, it is in the process of negotiating with the AUAB, to resolve the issues.

 

However, on the other side, the DoT has not come forward to invite the AUAB for talks, even after the employees have en-masse joined the 1st day strike. This only shows the double - talk of the DoT. Under these circumstances, today’s meeting of the AUAB, resolved to call upon the employees to further intensify the strike, and make it a cent percent success on the 2nd and 3rd days.

18-02-2019
3-day Strike implemented successfully in its first day.

In the first day of the three days Strike call given by AUAB has been successfully implemented throughout the Country. Many Circles, it is reported that about 90 to 95% Employees have actively participated in this Strike. The reports of all the Circles are very encouraging.

DOT through PIB has given the Press release that DoT reiterates that positive steps are being taken by the Department in respect of all the demands. But the fact remains that due to non-settlement of the demands even after the assurances given by the Hon’ble MOSC(I/C) to the AUAB Leaders in the meetings held on 24.2.2018 & 3.12.2018 for the settlement of the demands of AUAB. No proper steps are taken by the DoT Administration/BSNL Management for the settlement of the legitimate demands which has forced AUAB to go on 3 days Strike. After the AUAB Strike Notice served on 1.2.2019, DoT Administration has not called the AUAB Leaders to discuss their demands for settlement which pertains to DoT only. BSNL Non Executives and Executives are seriously frustrated and agitated due to non-settlement of their long pending legitimate demands.

Charter of demands

1. Implementation of 3rd Pay Revision with 15% fitment.

2. Allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL, as per the proposals submitted by the BSNL Management.

3. Implement assurance of the Hon'ble Minister of State for Communications for delinking pension revision from pay revision. Revise pension of BSNL Retirees w.e.f. 01.01.2017.

5. Settlement of the left out issues of the 2nd Pay Revision Committee.

7. (b) Issue letter of comfort for BSNL's proposals for taking bank loans.
7. (c) Expeditiously fill up all vacant post of BSNL Board of Directors.
8. Scrap BSNL's outsourcing for the operation and maintenance of it's mobile towers.

Talks fail - AUAB decides to go ahead with the strike.....


Today the CMD BSNL and Director(HR), BSNL Board met the AUAB leaders. The AUAB representatives told the Management that, they are prepared to accept 3rd Pay Revision with 5 % fitment, as offered earlier by the DoT. However, they  demanded that this commitment should be given in writing by the DoT, so that the AUAB can consider deferment of the strike. Even this demand of the AUAB is not accepted. Further, the DoT has also diluted it's earlier assurance to give DA neutralisation. The DoT is demanding that the AUAB should call off the strike, in view of the terror attack in Pulwama. The Secretary, Telecom, has put a condition that she would not meet the AUAB leaders, unless they call off the strike. Immediately after the meeting with the BSNL Management, all the General Secretaries of the AUAB met and decided to go ahead with the strike.

The AUAB has also decided to exempt J&K circle from the strike, to ensure maintenance of services, in the backdrop of the terror attack.

The AUAB requests all the circle and district unions to organise the strike powerfully.

AUAB meeting with Addl. Sect(T), DoT:  The representatives of AUAB metAddl. Sect(T), DoT and discussed regarding settlement of AUAB demands. AUAB expressed their serious concern against non settlement of AUAB demands even after assurances given by Secy(T), DoT & Hon'ble MOSC(I/C) in the meeting held on 2nd Dec., & 3rd Dec., 2018. We categorically told that despite the assurances given in the Digital Commission Meeting held on 5th Feb., 2019 for 4G Spectrum allocation to BSNL and issues related to revival of BSNL, payment of pension contribution on actual basic instead of maximum of the pay have not been cleared by IFD(DoT) and not send to DoE. the queries raised by DoP&PW regarding IDA pension revision formula has not yet been replied by DoT. The Cabinet Note on pay revision of BSNL executives & non-executives for relaxing affordability clause of 3rd PRC has not been sent to Cabinet for approval. The left out issues of 2nd PRC are not yet settled.

AST explained that in yesterday's Digital Commission Meeting, MTNL revival plan could not be discussed due to some queries. He further explained that in MTNL revival plan, MTNL Management has suggested for reduction of age from 60 years to 58 years, VRS & there is no proposal for pay revision. The BSNL revival plan is now ready but informally Digital Commission has advised to DoT to take the comments of TRAI on this issue in view of the Hon'ble Supreme Court Judgement. Thus 4G spectrum allocation will be send to TRAI for comments shortly. The other issues related to monitisation of non-core land of BSNL & VRS are to be discussed in the next Digital Commission Meeting to be held on 21st Feb., 2019 at 11.00 AM. He mentioned that regarding VRS in BSNL Rs. 6000 Crs. ex-gratia liability will be born by govt. through sovereign  guarantee.

On the issue of pay revision, AST further mentioned that even 5% fitment benefit on pay revision is difficult to get clear from DoE. On the AUAB demands AST told that he will shortly arrange a meeting with Hon'ble MOSC(I/C). He appealed to defer three days strike. We explained that three days strike notice has been served to divert the attention of govt. fro the settlement of AUAB demands. In case the demands are not settled, AUAB will be forced to resume indefinite strike.

All DS are requested to go through the trailing Kerala AUAB circular and actively participate to all exhortations under AUAB .

CS , ACS Com.Pushparajan and DS TVM met GM(A/HR) Shri.Robin Poddar and discussed the progress of release of all two year completed request transfer orders including that of JAOs orders , preferably in the first week of Feb-2019 as assured by CGMT to this association in the meeting called by CGMT on 24-Jan-2019.

 

We communicated the anomalies in the long stay lists published by circle office. He shared our concern and assured to look into the matters at the earliest. Regarding the long stay list of JTOs, we submitted that only very few JTOs are in the request side to parent BA . But more than 600 JTOs are posted in Kerala Circle during the last two years under LICE , DR and Rule 8 categories resulting  more or less sufficient JTOs are available with all BAs . Thus the need of operating JTO long stay list against those executives coming back after long stay  tenure transfer is not at all arises .   Moreover at this financial condition of BSNL , operation of long stay list of any cadre  is to be done very judiciously. GM appreciated our concern and assured to take it positively. He further mentioned that those who are on extension of long stay transfer for the last years would stand relieved automatically.

 

On our request to issue all transfer orders as promised, he committed to do all transfer orders preferably next week itself and won’t delay after 15th February 2019.

CGMT started the meeting by inviting creative suggestions for the revival of BSNL to be presented in the next HOCC meeting. He mentioned that even Kerala Circle is shifting towards the red signal zone due to the cut throat competition in market. The cash inflow of BSNL is very alarming. A better financial position of BSNL is very much essential for its survival. We have submitted some creative suggestions “out of the box” as business diversification strategies etc in addition to the strengthening our current business infra. CGMT appreciated our suggestions.

 

While discussing service/HR matters, we appreciated CGMT Kerala for the efforts he has taken during Sancharsoft failure by hosting  an offline package developed and linked to the NSS complaint manager. This offline data had been manually updated with HLR .

 

Release of inter BA request transfer orders for two years completed JAO/JTO/AO and other cadres:

We requested to release the pending transfer orders immediately in this month itself. CGMT assured to release the pending JAO transfer orders preferably in the first week of February itself instead of this month due to the busy preparatory works for the south zone meeting  to be held by Kerala Circle in next week . We further requested to release all the pending transfer orders of all the executives in JAO/JTO/AO and other cadres who are completing two years in March/April period of  2019 along with the JAO transfer orders foresighting declaration of Parliament election in the first week of March. CGMT assured to consider the same. Moreover, CGMT mentioned to represent urgent cases, if any , to be considered out of turn . We submitted the pending compassionate transfer case of Mr.Parthan AO from PGT to Kannur . CGMT has perceived the case empathetically and assured to release the order immediately.

 

Later we met GM(A/HR) Shri.Robin Poddar and appraised the developments of the meeting with CGMT . We requested to release all the pending transfer orders in one shot instead of piecemeal way ,which consumes more man power of circle office and help to mount discrimination among the aspirants . GM totally agreed with our suggestion and assured to release all the pending transfer orders simultaneously . He further suggested to point out the anomalies, if any , immediately  with the stay particulars of  DGM/AGM/SDE/JTOs released by circle office .

 

BA wise Stay particulars of  DGM/AGM/SDE/JTOs released by Circle office :

While enquiring the need for releasing the stay particulars in all cadres, CGMT mentioned the urgent need of balancing some cadres  among BAs . He assured to take feed back before operating the long stay list.

 

Controversy in  Joining  date of some executives on closed  holiday ,on Sunday,  in Ernakulam BA :

 We submitted illegitimacy of the matter in details to CGMT . Chances of multiple  litigations out of RTI on the matter was also discussed . CGMT mentioned that it shall not been permitted and   assured to look in to the matter .

 

Imposing Dies non  to executives could not present office due to unavailability of Transportation but not participate in  trade union  strike on 8th and 9th of January :

We submitted CGMT the matter of imposing dies non to employees , in some BA like EKM , who have not participated in strike but either on leave for genuine  reason or could not attend office due to the blockage of public transportation  . CGMT informed that the routine circular issued by Corporate Office  has only been endorsed. He assured to look into the anomalous treatment.

 

The matter was discussed with PGM-F Shri. KK Vel also . PGM-F also endorsed the view.

Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU & Convener, AUAB, welcomed everyone and presented the agenda item to be discussed in the meeting. General Secretaries / Representatives of BSNLEU, NFTE, SNEA, AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA, BSNL MS and BSNL OA, were present in the meeting. The meeting reviewed the progress in the settlement of the demands of the AUAB. The meeting assessed that reasonable progress is made on the demands of 4G spectrum and payment of pension contribution on actual basic pay.

However, the meeting came to the conclusion that, no substantial progress has come on the issues of 3rd Pay Revision and Pension Revision. The meeting also came to the assessment that the time available for the settlement of demands is only upto February, 2019 and that the announcement for Parliament elections may come any time in March, 2019. Once the elections are announced, the Code of Discipline will also come into effect and no demand could be settled thereafter.

In view of the above reasons, the meeting decided to convey to the government that, the AUAB would be compelled to give call for the strike. The meeting also decided that the AUAB should meet the Additional Secretary, Telecom, in person, and communicate this.

Meeting of the Committee for Periodic Interaction (Institutional Mechanism)  and meeting between the AUAB and the Addl.Secretary(T), DoT:

A meeting of the Committee for Periodic Interaction (Institutional Mechanism) was held in the Sanchar Bhawan yesterday the 10-01-2019. From the AUAB, Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS, BSNLEU & Convener, Com. Chandeswar Singh, GS, NFTE & Chairman, Com.K.Sebastin, GS, SNEA and Com.Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA participated. Shri.R.K.Kandelwal, Joint Secretary(Admn.) - Convener Committee, Shri S.K.Jain, DDG(Estt.), Sh. Rajeev Kumar DDG(Budget), Sh. Sanjay Agarwal, Director(Estt.), Sh. Pawan Gupta, Director(PSU), from DoT side and Ms.Sujata Ray, Director(HR) and ShriA.M.Gupta, GM(SR) from BSNL side were present in the meeting.


It may be remembered that the AUAB strongly demanded that this Committee should be chaired by the Addl. Secretary(T), and that no result would be achieved if it is presided over by the Joint Secretary level officer. Whatever we predicted, has proved to be correct. The Joint Secretary(Admn.) and the DDG(Estt.) were not able to give any worthwhile information about the status of the issues, viz., 3rd Pay Revision, Allotment of 4G spectrum, Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay and Pension Revision. Both the officers are completely negative on our issues. No worth mentioning outcome came from this meeting.


Hence, after this meeting, the AUAB leaders went and met Shri Anshu Prakash, Addl. Secretary(T) and expressed their total dissatisfaction about the outcome of the meeting. Shri R.K.Kandelwal, Joint Secretary (Admn.), Ms. Sujata Ray, Director (HR) and Shri A.M.Gupta, GM(SR) were also present. Thereafter, full fledged discussion took place with the Addl.Secretary(T).

3rd Pay Revision : 
Detailed discussion took place. The Addl. Secretary(T) told that the DoT is ready to settle the 3rd Pay Revision. But, he categorically told that it will be very difficult for the DoT to get the approval of the Cabinet for 15% fitment, since BSNL’s financial position does not allow payment of such high salary. He requested the AUAB and the BSNL Management to discuss and take viable decision and bring to DoT immediately so that this can be taken in next Digital Commission scheduled to be held in the first week of Feb., 2019.

4G spectrum to BSNL: 
As regards the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL, the Addl. Secretary(T) confidently told that the DoT would do it’s best to get the Cabinet approval for the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL. He expressed hope that the Digital Commission meeting to be held in the 1st week of February would give the necessary clearance, after which it would go for the Cabinet approval.

Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay: 
As regards the issue of Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay, the Addl. Secretary(T) told that the Department of Expenditure (DoE) has sought certain details and that the DoT has already written to the BSNL in this regard. The Director (HR) replied that within 1 or 2 days, BSNL would send a reply to the DoT. The Addl. Secretary(T) assured that thereafter prompt action would be taken to get the approval of the DoE.

Pension Revision: 
On this issue, the AUAB representatives expressed their dissatisfaction and demanded that prompt action should be taken by the DoT. Thereafter, detailed discussion took place with regards to the fitment, etc. Finally, the Addl. Secretary(T) requested Director(HR) to provide with copies of relevant documents like Govt. orders related to the earlier pension revision documents to the employees, etc.
 

Left out items of 2nd PRC :At the end of the meeting, the Addl. Secretary(T), DoT suggested that the AUAB representatives could again meet him next week. In addition to that left out items of 2nd PRC, Director(HR) BSNL informed that the BSNL Management is taking necessary action to enhance the superannuation benefits from 5% to 8%.

AIBSNLEA Kerala recorded lunch hour protest demonstration today at Circle office against non releasing of transfer orders of 2 year completed executives especially for those tenure completed JAOs against them already substitutes are posted and to set aside the unfriendly stubborn attitude of CGMT Kerala for the optimal utilization of money and man power of Kerala circle thereby saving the most profit making Kerala Circle from the nose-diving financial performance. We are shocked to inform that, apparently, our circle fearing a loss of  200 Crore  in this FY .

BSNL's Proposal for reduction of retirement age from 60 years to 58 years to DOT: In response to DOT letter dated 6-11.2018, BSNL Management has proposed reduction of retirement age as 58 years instead of 60 years for revision of pay of Board level and below Board level executives of BSNL under 3rd PRC. Even this BSNL's proposal is not acceptable to DoT, mentioning that the financial implication for implementation of 3rd PRC i.e. Rs. 2980 Crore annually could not be substantiated.

 
It is surprising that BSNL Management has given such proposal to DoT even without discussing with the BSNL Unions and Associations. This is a serious situation and AUAB has to immediately react against such actions of DoT/BSNL.

 
It is understood that IIM Ahmedabad report on revival of BSNL may also suggest the reduction of retirement age as 58 years instead of 60 years.

Further he mentioned that DoT may immediately reply to DoE that 01.01.2017 can be the cut of date for its implementation at present. We requested him to consider 01.01.2006 as per DoP&T order.

(b) Delinking of pension revision from pay revision of BSNL employees: AST directed Jt. Secy(Admin), DoT, who was present in the meeting, to discuss the matter with Jt.

CS met CGMT Kerala Dr.PT Mathew today and discussed pending service and HR Matters . GM (A/HR) Shri.Robin Poddar was also present . Some of the issues discussed follow.

 

Popularization of BSNL 4G Plus  and BSNL Broad-Fi under USO/MDO WiFi Locations : 

CS requested to take measures to popularize these services along with BSNL Wi-Fi service among the customers especially those who are under the coverage area of WiFi services. This will promote the use of these services  by customers there by reducing the  low  mobile data speed complaints and it is an alternative method of data connectivity during  wired BB data  failure . CGMT appreciated the suggestions and instantly directed concerned GM to issue necessary instructions for the effective utilization of BSNL WiFi services  .

 

1066 USO wifi hotspots are being commissioned by BSNL in Kerala alone . Under  BSNL Wi-Fi service every customer  including non-BSNL customers can enjoy 10GB data per month free of cost per SIM . Beyond that data volume, customers can recharge various attractive data packages online . BSNL 4G Plus is a real substitute for Mobile Data package from BTS . Through BSNL Broad-Fi service customers can enjoy data using their wired BB username and password.                    <<<Procedure for  Connecting    WiFi Services >>>   

 

Release of inter BA request transfer orders for two years completed JAO/JTO/AO and other cadres .

In continuation of the meeting on 30-11-2018 , CS  requested to release all the two year completed request transfers . After several requests and discussion , CGMT unilaterally  taken a very unfriendly stand that all request transfer orders will be released only on 31st of March  2019 . CS submitted many examples of the very friendly and motivating stand of corporate office on the requests of associations/unions .  Recently  Corporate  office has issued tenure transfer  orders  of accounts Personnels .  Thus, even Corporate  office is not insisting for March . CS further submitted that   Kerala circle  being  the top revenue earning circle ,  some more  employee friendly   steps of CGMT would definitely increase the efficiency of our circle . All these requests were patiently listened by CGMT but he was not ready to change his stand.

 

As far as the  JAO request transfers are concerned , only 16 requests are pending . Recently  29 DR-JAOs are posted against them  . Most of them are posted for Kannur and Malappuram .  As an example from ALP BA , only one request pending against 5 DR-JAOs posted there . In accounts and finance wing  request transfer orders have been considered strictly on completion of two years of tenure . This is the practice being followed in kerala circle even without the active intervention of association . This time the practice is dishonored without any reason. No way we could digest the logic rather sense behind the very unilateral and stubborn decision of CGMT Kerala .  It is reported from some branches that DR-JAOs are longing for a chair to occupy in office against the JAO already requested for transfer to parent BA while some other BAs are starving for JAOs . This willful stand of CGMT Kerala  will help only to demotivate the workforce and damaging the performance of Kerala Circle . What is the sense behind accumulating young JAOs at some BAs while other BAs desperately desire JAOs? In which way this very uneconomical deed can be appreciated?  . The unilateral and  poor HR handling without proper utilization of efficient manpower will result  in worst performance of Kerala Circle.  At this incipient sick stage of BSNL , when circle management is not ready to do very justifiable things favorable to workforce even after posting rock-bottom levels of repeated request by association is definitely compelling association to showcase its role of resorting trade union actions .                                

 

We once again request CGMT Kerala to  honor the good practices on transfers in Kerala Circle . All District secretaries are requested to keep ready for agitational programme.   

                              

CS , DS TVM and CO along with Com.Rajan CEC TVM met GM(A/HR) and discussed all the pending HR issues .

GM(A/HR) communicated the progress of all HR issues taken up with him. We sincerely appreciated GM (A/HR) Shri.Robin Poddar  on his very executive friendly attitude on many issues including  finalization of disciplinary cases very favorably , wherever possible.

AUAB writes to Secy(T), DoT regarding implementation of the direction of the Hon'ble MoS(C), with regards to putting in place an institutional mechanism for periodic interaction between the DoT and the AUAB....<<<<Click here for letter>>>

04-12-2018

The indefinite strike from 03.12.2018 has been deferred till further intimation by AUAB -After meeting held with Hon’ble MoSC(I/C) on 03.12.2018. 

a.  4G Spectrum Allocation to BSNL: Non-allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL has been a major handicap for BSNL growth. The assurance given by the Hon’ble MoS(C) in this regard in 24thFeb., 2018, was not implemented. In yesterday’s meeting, the Hon’ble MoS(C) intimated that the Cabinet Note on the allotment of 4G spectrum to BSNL is already circulated to the other ministries for comments. He also assured to depute a senior officer of the DoT to those nodal ministries to quicken the process. Once this process is completed, the Hon’ble MoS(C) assured to take up this issue in the next Cabinet meeting itself. It is assured now that BSNL is going to get 4G spectrum shortly. This is a major break through in the financial revival of BSNL, and undoubtedly a very big achievement of the AUAB.

b.  Pension revision of  BSNL Pensioners: So far, the DoT has been linking pension revision of BSNL pensioners  with the pay revision of the BSNL employees. They have taken a firm stand that pension revision could be done only when pay revision is done to the serving employees. However, in the meeting held with the Secretary(T), DoT on 02.12.2018, and also in the meeting with the Hon’ble MoS(C) on 03.12.2018, the AUAB is informed that pension revision of the retirees is now delinked from the pay revision of the employees and the matter has been send to DoP&PW for consideration. This is a very big achievement of this strike call. AUAB will continue to take all out efforts to ensure that the revision of pension is done at the earliest.

c. Implementation of government rules in the payment of pension contribution by BSNL: The Hon’ble MoS(C) categorically told that government rule will be implemented, according to which BSNL has to pay pension contribution, based on actual basic pay. A letter has already been gone to the finance ministry, with the recommendation of the DoT. Settlement of this issue, is also a boost for the financial revival of BSNL.    

d.  Left out issues of the 2nd PRC: The BSNL Management has long been demanding that Management should fulfil the recommendation of the 2nd PRC, that 30% of the pay should be contributed by the Management towards superannuation benefits of the Directly Recruited employees. On this issue, the CMD BSNL has assured, in the meeting held with him on 02.12.2018, that BSNL’s contribution towards pension contribution will be increased by another 3%, by March, 2019, and the remaining will be increased thereafter in one go. Thus, the non-implementation of the recommendation of the 2nd PRC, in respect of superannuation benefits is also resolved.   

In addition to this, AIBSNLEA requested for the revision of Pay scales E-1 by E-2, E-2 by E-3 and upgradation of subsequent pay scales E-3 by E-4, E-5 by E-6 and E-6 by E-7; Hon’ble MoS(C) directed DoT officers for consideration.

e.  3rd Pay Revision of employees: No final settlement is reached in respect of the 3rd Pay Revision of the employees. It was told in the discussion by the Hon’ble MoS(C) as well as by the Secretary(T), DoT, that pay revision of the employees would be done, but 15% fitment cannot be given. The AUAB representatives gave a detailed presentation to the Hon’ble MoS(C), justifying pay revision with 15% fitment. However, it was not accepted. The AUAB feels that this issue needs to be further persued with the DoT, for which some more time needs to be given.

DoT is constituting a committee of comprising officers of DoT/BSNL and the representatives of AUAB to meet fortnightly  to have a follow-up action on the above issues.

The leaders of the AUAB, in the meeting held after talks with the Hon’ble MoS(C), appreciated the fact that the strike call has brought major achievements to the BSNL employees, and that these achievements have got to be consolidated, by way of implementation of the assurances / issuing of letters. As regards the wage revision is concerned, the AUAB has decided to give some more time to the DoT to sort out the matter. However, struggles become inevitable, if the persuasions of the AUAB fail.

03-12-2018

AUAB Meeting today unanimously decided to defer the strike till further intimation as per the following details:----

CS , CP ,CFS and CEC Member ,TVM  met the CGMT  in the afternoon  session yesterday and discussed all pending Service/HR issues . GM (A/HR) was present in the meeting.

 

At the outset CGMT shared his concern on the fall in revenue of Kerala Circle and requested all employees to take all-out steps to add more and more customers to BSNL services to increase revenue of Kerala Circle. He added that through collective effort of all employees only we can tackle the situation. We assured our best support and co-operation on all his actions in this regard.

Some of the HR issues discussed with CGMT follows..

Intra circle request transfer of 2 years completed JAO/AO/CAOs:

We expressed our anxiety on not releasing request transfer orders for the two year completed executives. We requested to release the same immediately as it is being followed in Kerala Circle. Especially when only 17 JAOs are requested for transfer against 29 DR-JAOs are already posted. As an example from ALP only one request pending against 5 DR-JAOs posted there. CGMT replied that all pending transfer requests can be released in March short of only three months. We  requested to release it immediately due to many reasons viz substitutes are already posted , holding the executives further is a mere waste of money , if not released now they cannot be released in March as audit process begins etc. After some discussions CGMT assured to consider our request very positively. We reciprocate thanks and requested to release all two year completed request transfers without delay.

Regularization of  34 JAOs ( JAO-Probation) posted against the notified vacancy of 2012  internal competitive exam (40% category)   despite the fact that all their fellow 2012-VY JAOs were promoted as regular AOs :

While submitting the matter CGMT directed GM(A/HR) to explain the steps circle office has taken on our letter of request. After listening the comments of GM, we submitted our views for settling the case favorable to the 34 JAO . Both CGMT and GM had a patient hearing on our submissions. Later CGMT directed GM(A/HR) to discuss the matter further with us and submit proposals . CGMT assured to have a relook into the matter.

Case of dies-non imposed to a lady officer (SDE)  in TVM BA by DGM without following norms :

We took notice of this issue to CGMT that the action has been done without adopting norms .   The mala fide actions of controlling officer like this on biased way only help to demotivate  the hard working officers . No way it is helpful for the growth of BSNL. The Lady Comrade already lodged a harassment complaint against this officer to our TVM branch . The harassment complaint is submitted to PGMT TVM and understandably TVM BA lodging the complaint to Police and Women’s Commission.

 

Posting of PPS in Kerala Circle and Pending Promotion orders to PS :  CGMT assured to complete PA-PS promotions  without delay as fresh VC called for. He directed GM to speed up the matter . Regarding PPS promotion , we submitted that in almost all circles it has been completed and it is pending in Kerala Circle. CGMT  assured to look into the matter positively .

 

Pending Financial Up gradation Orders: DPC process going on and the orders will be released without delay.

 

CS , CP ,CFS and TVM CEC Member ,TVM  met the  PGM-F in the morning session yesterday and discussed all pending HR issues in accounts wing.

 

PGM-F shared the real stress and pain he is undergoing in managing limited income and the enormous expenditure of Kerala Circle . He requested us to be keen on generating more revenue including outstanding payments . We assured to  do our best.

Intra circle request transfer of 2 years completed JAO/AO/CAOs :

We expressed our anxiety on not releasing transfer orders for  the two year completed requests . We requested to release the same as it is being followed in Kerala Circle . He shared our anxiety and responded that at some levels it is decided to do all the pending request transfer orders  in a single bunch in March-2019 . We categorically discontented the decision and demanded to issue transfer orders as it is being done.

Only 17 JAOs are requested for transfer and against them 29 DR-JAOs are already posted . What is the sense in taking such a decision ?  Moreover internal /external audits are starting from March of every year and completing in September. Then how can executives in accounts  wing be relieved in march without completing audit process . PGM-F opined that he is also having the same view and support and suggested to take the matter up with CGMT .

Regularization of  34 JAOs ( JAO-Probation) posted against the notified vacancy of 2012  internal competitive exam (40% category)   despite the fact that all their fellow 2012-VY JAOs were promoted as regular AOs :

We requested to positively consider the case for a fruitful result. PGMF replied that as per the letter of AIBSNLEA DGM (F) , DGM(HR) and DGM(Legal) had a meeting and submitted their view that the cannot be considered now due to the matter is sub judice . We submitted our logical views to reconsider the case and requested his support . After discussion on our views he assured his support. 

 

Irrational assignment  of Controlling Officers to JAO/AO working at CSC in Some BAs:

We expressed our resentment on assigning SDEs as controlling officers to the JAOs working at CSCs while AOs also working in relation to CSCs  .  We strongly requested to discontinue the practice and assign AO as controlling officer for the  JAOs. We further requested to sanction JAO/AO posts  for CSCs. PGMF appreciated our concern , totally shared our views and assured to look into the matter
