Meeting with CMD, BSNL. CMD invited Forum leaders for a meeting to discuss on the charter of demands. A detail discussion for more than 3 hours held mainly on BSNL related issues. CMD informed that he requested DoT also to have a meeting with Forum to discuss issues related to Govt. Since Secretary, DoT is on tour along with PM, meeting may take place only after his return on monday . Smt Sujata Ray, ED Fin, Sr GMSR, GM Pers, GM Estt and GM Admn were also present in the meeting. Comrades, since most of the issues are related to Govt which are yet to be addressed, make maximum preparations for the strike on 21, 22 April.

17.04.2015: Incident that took place at ITPC-DC, HYD on 16.04.2015:

For the first time in the history of ITPC DC, shift duties were introduced at ITPC DC Hyd, in spite of strong protest by all the executives. In fact, the respective teams are taking care of their units / applications 24 X 7 X 365 since 2009, the inception of CDR project, hence the necessity of a separate order is not required. In this regard, all the three Associations under the banner of United Forum of Executives served letter to the ITPC DC, Hyderabad Administration for amicable settlement of the issue across the table. But ITPC administration has neither met nor granted meeting to the Forum. Finally on compulsion, administration has agreed to meet on 13.4.2015 which was subsequently postponed to 16.4.2015 without any valid reason. Again on 16.4.2015, the admin denied to meet the Forum on the pretext of busy schedule with intimation to meet after 21.4.2015. With this development, all the executives of ITPC DC got aggrieved, assembled and requested the Administration for resolving the issue, which was blatantly denied by the ITPC DC Administration. Though the executives, including lady comrades were protesting silently, the administration called the Police which was totally uncalled for and unwarranted. The arrival of the police further aggrieved the silently protesting executives. This has forced the forum leaders to appraise the situation to the CGM ITPC and explain the grim situation prevailing at DC and total unhelpful attitude of the DC administration. At last at about 20.30 Hrs GM DC Hyd along with all the DGMs assured to resolve the issue across the table and accepted to keep the present orders of shift duties under abeyance. United forum of Executives of ITPC sincerely thank the CGM ITPC, PUNE for his timely intervention and helping to resolve the issue. United forum of Executives also thank GM DC Hyd and all DGMs for the settlement.

Strike on 21st, 22nd April, 2015.

All activists are requested to make Massive preparations in the next few days by door to door campaign and conducting combined meeting of Forum at all the exchanges / locations.

17.04.2015: All the Executive Associations were invited by Sr.G.M.(HR) AP Circle on 16.04.2015 to discuss on the issue of request transfers.

08.04.2015: Meeting with Diretor(HR): CHQ President, AGS, Com Dahiya and CS/BSNL Co, Com Khan, met Director(HR) and discussed following issues.

A) Filing of SLP in Honble Supreme Court by BSNL against the stay granted by Ernakulam High Court on JTO to TES Gr B promotion:
We strongly pleaded that BSNL should immediately file an SLP in Honble Supreme Court to vacate the stay granted by Ernakulam High Court on JTO to TES Gr B promotion. We informed Director(HR) that there are very strong and justified grounds for BSNL to file SLP against interim order of Ernakulam High Court in view of judgments given by CAT Chennai and CAT Ernakulam comprehensively dismissing the petitions challenging the promotion from JTO to TES Gr on merits. The grounds cited in Ernakulam High Court challenging JTO to TES Gr B promotion are more or less the same that were raised in CAT Chennai and CAT Ernakulam. We also informed Director(HR) that BSNL Management cannot sit as a silent spectator in view of the fact that JTOs are waiting for more than 20- years for their first promotion and must act very swiftly to ensure that stay granted by Ernakulam High Court is vacated is vacated at the earliest. Director(HR) was also informed that this Association is also filing SLP in Supreme Court against the stay granted by Ernakulam High Court. After having been apprised of all the facts, Director(HR) assured that he would discuss immediately the issue with concerned officers and whatever legal action is needed to be taken to facilitate holding of DPC from JTO to TES Gr B would surely be taken.

B) Restoration of trade union facilities withdrawn after notification of membership verification process We once again reminded Director(HR) about the discussions we have had with him on this issue and his assurance that he would consider restoration of trade union facilities withdrawn after notification of verification process. We informed him that despite his assurances no further action has been taken in this regard. Director(HR) assured that he would initiate action on this issue immediately.

C) Reversion of 73 JTOs of UP(W) : We apprised Director(HR) on this issue on the same lines we apprised CMD and sought his immediate intervention to ensure that such a dangerous situation does not arise. Director(HR) assured that he would try to take a very sympathetic view of the whole after examining it in detail.

06.04.2015: Seniority List 6 and 7 of TES Group B equivalent to SDE (T) Revised : Judgment dated 25.08.2009 of Hon ble CAT, Chandigarh Bench in TA No. 84/HR/2009 is implemented.

GS letter to CMD, BSNL

18.03.2015: CHQ NEWS: Meeting with Sri A. N. Rai, DIR(HR), BSNL on 13.03.2015: GS and President met Sri A. N. Rai and discussed the following issues:

a) Switching over to Time bound Functional promotion from the existing seniority based promotions: Now promotions in various cadres held up due to litigations especially in Engg wing. Thousands of SDE, DE and DGM posts are vacant. JTO eligibility list is under challenge since 2009. All the SDE seniority lists (1 to 7) are quashed by the Hon Supreme Court. Promotions in various wings of the same company varies years together. JAO to AO promotion happening in 4 years whereas JTO(T) to SDE(T) promotion is not happening even after 20 years, JTO (C/E) to SDE(C/E) promotion is after 22 to 23 years etc. The uniform promotion policy for all the cadres in various wings is to be implemented as assured at the time of promotion.  Only solution is to switch over to TB functional promotion. The consultant also proposed the same. DIR(HR) assured that serious discussions in this regard can be held in the month of April.

b) Finalization of  pay scales of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO cadres by E2, E3 scales from 01.01.2007: Assn pointed out that even after repeated assurances by the Management and rejection of the proposal by the DPE and DoT, no action is taken by the management so far to finalise the pay scales. The basic cadres are facing the threat of demotion which cannot be accepted at all. DIR(HR) is of the firm view that management is not in a position to consider this proposal due to financial constraints and even suggested that the future recruitment can be in E1 scale.

c) 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees: Assn requested to resolve this issue as it is pending since pay revision. DIR(HR) informed that considering the financial condition of the company, 2% to 3% is under consideration of the Management at present which will be reviewed later. Assn requested to reconsider this and work out a mutually agreeable solution for all the stake holders with considerable hike in the percentage.

c) Transfer from soft tenure areas: Assn requested to clear the confusion on transfer from soft tenure areas on long stay and promotion: The treatment on tenure and soft tenure stations should be uniform for all the purposes to avoid confusion. DIR(HR) agreed to our suggestions and told that uniform policy will be followed for tenure and soft tenure areas on transfer on long stay and promotion.

Comrades, the developments on pay scales, TB functional promotion and 30% superannuation benefits are not at all encouraging. On the other hand Management is not able to promote the executives to the vacant SDE, DE and DGM posts, simply citing court cases. This all compel us to re-launch the trade union actions we deferred in March, 2014 after repeated assurances. Make preparations accordingly.

18.03.2015: CHQ NEWS: Meeting with Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL on 13.03.2015: GS, President and both AGSs met Sri Anupam Shrivastava and discussed the following issues:

a) Switching over to Time bound Functional promotion from the existing seniority based promotions: Assn explained the litigations going on seniority related issues which blocked the promotions in almost all the cadres. The litigations may continue in the future also. Only solution is to switch over to TB functional promotion. The consultant also proposed the same.

b) Implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 from 01.01.2007: Even after repeated assurances by the Management and rejection of the proposal by the DPE and DoT, no action is taken by the management so far. The basic cadres are facing the threat of demotion which cannot be accepted at all.

After discussion CMD, suggested to have further discussion with DIR(HR) on these issues and will have discussions after that.
