Civil Appeal 4389/2011, Union of India V/s Sohan Lal Sayal & ORS was heard today in the Hon'ble Supreme Court Bench No. 8 at Case No. 101. The hearing continued since 12.30 pm to 04.00 pm and finally Hon'ble Supreme Court decided to constitute an expert committee headed by any Hon'ble Retd. Judge of High Court immediately to hear all the concerned parties and examining the consequences of implementation of Rule-206.  Hon'ble Court made the observation that Hon'ble Supreme Court judgment in the year 1992 was implemented in 1993 by DoT in support of Rule 206 which was reversed in the year 2000 after the clarification given by Apex Court but it was wrongly interpreted and implemented by BSNL. Now during the last 15 years on the basis of Rule 1966 (year of recruitment basis) many SDEs have been benefited and their interest is also required to protect. Hence, the expert committee will look into the interest of both the groups. 147-SDEs of LDCE quota advocate also pleaded that Rule-206 implementation may disturb their seniority so they should also be heard. Hon'ble Court allowed their representation to the expert committee and in case the committee feels to hear them may hear their pleadings. 45 SDEs who got seniority earlier in 1993 and in 2006 year on the basis of Rule-206, their counselor pleaded that on implementation of Rule-206 (Generalized) their seniority should remain intact; they were also allowed to present before the committee. The committee has been given 6 months time to submit its report to the Hon'ble Supreme Court for final decision. Shortly two retired High Court judges committee will be constituted by the Hon'ble Apex Court. All the expenditure of TA/DA, accommodation (venue) etc will be born by BSNL. The judgment will be applicable to the TES Gr'B' officers of BSNL and MTNL. GS and President (CHQ) remained present during the hearing in the Hon'ble Supreme Court.

Decisions of the meeting of Forum held on 7th January 2015

A meeting of the Forum was held today, 7th January 2015, at the Corporate Office premises presided over by Com. Islam Ahmad, President, NFTE. The convener reported about the developments and actions taken after the last meeting of the Forum held on 30-12-2014. All the unions/associations  of executives and non-executives, who have not come to the Forum so far  have been approached to be party to the 'Save BSNL Campaign' and connected programme of action to make them completely successful. Members of Parliament of various political parties have been addressed to take up the issues of BSNL and its revival with the government. All the 11 Central Trade Unions as also independent federations in Railways, Defence, Postal, other central Government Employees Unions, State government employees, Insurance, Banks  etc. also have been approached for solidarity and support for our struggle. Press Statements were issued focusing on our 'Save BSNL Campaign', which have been published in some newspapers.

After detailed discussion, the following decisions were taken:

1. As per the reports so far received, the dharna yesterday was held in most of the centres. The General Secretaries will collect full information and wherever the same has not been organised should be told to conduct the same at least on the last day. Good number of comrades have participated from UP(West) yesterday and from Haryana today in the dharna at Corporate Office. C.O. and NTR circle should bring maximum workers tomorrow (08.01.2015) for the dharna in C.O.

2. The Circle level Conventions as part of the 'Save BSNL Campaign' should be organised early with the participation of all unions. Com.P.Abhimanyu, General Secretary, BSNLEU is entrusted with the task of co-ordinating and fixing the date of the conventions in consultation with other General Secretaries.

3. The 'Save BSNL Campaign' should be effectively organised. More than one crore signature is to be collected in the Memorandum to the Prime Minister and all the unions together have to make maximum efforts for the same.  Clear message should go from the General Secretaries to organise the programme in a very effective way. The target fixed is one crore signature, but it should be more than that. The Circles should plan in such a way that number of signatures collected should be more than 50 times the number of the employees in the circle. The signatures thus collected should reach the All India Convener (V.A.N. Namboodiri, Convener, Forum, D-7, Telegraph Place, Gole Market, New Delhi -110001  Mob: 9868231431) before 15th February 2015, so as to submit on the day of the Parliament March to the Prime Minister.

4. The details of the arrangements for the Parliament March on 25th February 2015 will be further discussed in the next meeting of the Forum. The unions/associations intimated the number of participants in the Parliament March from their respective unions/associations.

Other unions will also intimate the number of participants.

5. Necessary funds for the Parliament March and other connected matters will be decided and contributed by the unions/associations in the next meeting of the Forum.

6. Circulars in the ?Save BSNL Campaign' should be issued both in English and Hindi. A Note on how to approach the people should be prepared and circulated. The Circle Secretaries should translate these in the regional language and circulate. Local comrades should meet the M.P. of the constituency and request for support.

7.  Joint meetings of all the unions/associations at Circle and SSA levels should be held to plan the programmes in an effective way.

FORUM OF BSNL UNIONS/ ASSOCIATIONS

ORGANISE SOLIDARITY DEMONSTRATIONS IN SUPPORT OF STRIKING COAL WORKERS

 

Dear Comrade,

The 7 lakh Coal India Workers are on strike from 6th January 2015, protesting against proposed disinvestment/privatisation of the coal sector through the Coal Ordinance issued by the government after the winter session of the Parliament, in which the Coal Bill could not be passed due to strong opposition. The disinvestment/privatisation will result in the coal mines of the country being handed over to the corporates / big industrial houses for maximising their profit. This will be the loss of national assets. The strike is complete. The demands of the coal workers are that the Coal Ordinance should be scrapped and the Coal Bill pending in the Parliament should be withdrawn. This is a 'do or die' struggle of the workers of the largest public sector in the country.

All the unions in the coal sector including BMS, INTUC, HMS, CITU, AITUC etc. are organsing the strike jointly. As the BSNL Unions/Associations have gone on joint strike against disinvestment/privatisation of BSNL, the coal workers are also on the struggle path against the same. The struggle requires our whole-hearted support and solidarity. The government cannot be allowed to privatise the precious coal sector.

The Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations in its meeting held today, 7th January 2015, discussed the matter and has unanimously decided to call upon the BSNL workers to jointly organise demonstrations on 8th January at all SSAs/Circles and Corporate office protesting against the Coal Ordinance, privatisation/disinvestment of coal sector and also extending full solidarity and support to the indefinite strike of the coal workers.

Comrades,

It is seen that even after repeated requests the diary orders are being sent with out mentioning complete address of the consignee along with his Mobile Number and area Pin Code. It is creating un-wanted delay in dispatch of the diaries. Therefore, it is one again requested to immediately give the complete address of the consignee along with his Mobile Number and area Pin Code for a hassle free delivery of the consignment.

.......GS Message on the eve of New Year-2015......

Dear Comrades,

Happy New Year 2015!

I wish you and members of your family a very happy and prosperous New Year-2015! May in the coming days / year, BSNL will flourish and brings lot of happiness and prosperity to the employees of BSNL!

New year 2015 starts and with it, new hopes and aspirations - a faint desire that sprouts in every human heart that speaks of happiness, prosperity and goodness to come. But the excitement of a new year brings about an anticipation of a better future. This is one real moment that will touch the fabrics of human emotions that entails not only hope, but a reason to keep smiling and living life as it is.

There is an urgent need to increase Quality of Service in all the BSNL products, quick provisioning/installation/supply of BSNL Services/Products and fault free service with very less restoration time  of faults, which will definitely increases BSNL's revenue as well as confidence in our esteemed customers, so we the Executives of BSNL should ensure the same with the available resources in all field where we are providing the services. This will also helps in increasing the market share of BSNL. BSNL is in an ideal position to take full advantage of this situation with existing technological & infrastructural capability. I know that our members can understand the market dynamics in the prevailing competitive environment in the country and will act in the best interest of company.  

As far as role of Union/Association is concerned, I understand that on increasing the revenue of BSNL, automatically the benefits will reach to the employees. To save BSNL, Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations has already started agitation programme for the revival of BSNL and I appeal all of my members to participate actively to protect the interest of BSNL.

Once again wishing you a Happy New Year ? 2015:     ????        Prahlad Rai, GS AIBSNLEA
