23.02.2015:     CHQ  NEWS:

Meeting with Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD/BSNL:

GS Com K. Sebastin, CHQ President Com G L Jogi and AGS Com Vivek Wankhede met Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL on 20.02.2015 and held discussions for about one hour on issues related to revival of BSNL and HR issues. Initially the meeting was scheduled for 09.02.2015 but due to the meeting with the Forum on the same day, it was postponed to 20.02.15. At the outset we assured our full support and cooperation to him for all the initiatives taken by the Management for the revival of BSNL.

CMD informed that Management will be very tough on the non performers and clear message is already given to all Circles/SSAs. Tough measures will be initiated to bring accountability and easy-going /indiscipline will not be tolerated at all.

On merger of SSAs, Assn told CMD that this move should not further concentrate the power and decision making. CMD informed that as a first step, the HR, Finance and planning activities in few Circles only will be centralised and the performance monitored for one year. If it is found effective, it will be implemented in other Circles also. The operations and related activities will remain with the concerned SSAs.

Finalization of standard Pay scales of E2, E3 etc for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO and equivalent cadre w.e.f 01.01.2007: Assn explained the whole issue to the new CMD  - assurance given in 2012 and Joint committee formation, rejection of E1A and E2A proposal by DoT, reiteration of implementations of standard pay scales by DPE in December/2012, assurance given to the Assn in March-Sept, 2014, rejection of E1A and E2A proposal by DPE in July, 2014 etc. The JTO/JAO and SDE/AO cadres which are the backbone of the company is not having pay scales for the last 8 years. There is a difference of Rs 3800/ between the basic pay of a JTO recruited prior to 01.01.2007 and after 01.01.2007.

CMD surprised to see that the pay scales of the JTO and SDE cadres are not finalised for 8 years even after clear instructions and rejection of the E1A and E2A proposal by the DPE/DoT and the committee is not deliberating and finalizing its recommendations as per the mandate given to it. Assn pointed out that in order to further delay the process, MTNL pension issue is unnecessary raised now which is no way connected with the pay revision w.e.f 01.01.2007. CMD assured that he will discuss the matter with DIR(HR) and ensure that the committee concludes its report and a final decision is taken. We hope that CMD and DIR(HR) will take a final call on E2, E3 pay scales sine E1A and E2A scales are repeatedly rejected by DPE and DoT.                         

 Time Bound Functional promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy: GS told CMD that as on today JTO to SDE promotion, SDE to DE promotion and DE to DGM promotions are under litigation and Management is not able to fillup the vacancies. The entire promotions based on existing seniority lists from JTO to DGM are blocked. Being that the ground reality, the rationale behind the HR wings move even to stop the “proposal to give time bound promotion upto AGM level without consideration of vacancy” is not known. Is the HR wing have any other proposal to give promotion to the executives from JTO to DGM without any hurdle other than this? We don’t want to here again and again that promotions cannot be done due to court cases. Assn clearly told that nothing less than this proposal is acceptable to us and Management has to reconsider its decision to restrict Time bound promotion without consideration of vacancy” only upto SDE level. CMD assured us to examine the matter before implementation.

30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees: Assn explained the status of the issue. CMD informed that the Management is aware of the issue and some proposal is under consideration. Assn told CMD that the proposal under consideration is not going to solve the problem and requested to work out a reasonable solution to the issue after discussion with all stake holders since just like pay scale issue, the affected employees are losing the pension benefits for years together, from 2007.

CMD had a patient hearing for an hour and we got the right opportunity to draw his attention to some of the major HR issues. This is the first time we got such an opportunity to discuss the HR issues with the CMD. We hope that CMD will take appropriate action and initiative to resolve these issues as he understood that these issues are to be resolved in order to motivate the employees.

Meeting with Director(HR)-CHQ President and both AGSs met Director(HR) to discuss following issues:

A) Immediate restoration of trade union facilities suspended consequent to initiation of flawed, objective less, mock and ridiculous membership verification process: We clearly conveyed to Director(HR) that it is completely unfair and arbitrary on the part of Management to keep trade union facilities in frozen condition since notification of membership verification process which is stayed by Karnataka HC for the last more than six months. Besides, this Association is completely and strongly opposed to going ahead with membership verification unless basic and pertinent issues raised by this Association and whose resolution alone will help achieve basic objective of membership verification process are comprehensively addressed, we informed Director(HR).
We urged upon Director(HR) to initiate immediate action towards restoration of trade union facilities enjoyed by this Association prior to commencement of membership verification since day to day functioning of the Association stands adversely impacted on frivolous, flimsy and non- existent grounds. Director (HR) assured of very quick action to restore the facilities as early as possible and also assured that he will direct Sr GM (SR) to initiate appropriate action in this regard.

B)    Monitoring of progress of DPC: We sought personal intervention of Director (HR) to monitor progress of ongoing seniority cum fitness DPC from JTO to TES Gr B and informed him that the progress of DPC is not as quick and on expected lines. We also informed Director (HR) that his personal intervention in closely monitoring progress of DPC has become absolutely necessary in view of slow pace of DPC work. Director (HR) assured that he will monitor progress of DPC personally besides directing concerned officers to expedite DPC as much as possible. Subsequently, we have had discussion with DGM (P) regarding accelerating the pace of DPC work and he assured that necessary action is already being taken to complete the work as quickly as possible.

Meeting with Sr GM(SR) We apprised Sr GM(SR) about the discussions that we have had with Director(HR) regarding restoration of trade union facilities and also pleaded with him to initiate quick action to ensure that facilities that have been suspended arbitrarily are restored at the earliest since there is absolutely no justification whatsoever in continuing with suspension of these facilities. Sr GM(SR) categorically assured that immediate action within a couple of days would be initiated to restore the facilities as quickly as possible.

Copy of interim stay order on JTO to SDE promotions for 3 weeks w.e.f 04.02.2015 from Hon HC, Kerala:

SNEA(I) is the only Assn, we reiterate the only Assn, present in the Hon HC and opposed the stay application in the Hon High Court. Our strong opposition along with the arguments of BSNL lawyer restricted the interim stay for 3 weeks eventhough the court initially granted stay for one month. In Hon CAT also, impleading applications were filed by others but they never bothered to file reply/counter reply or engage lawyer to argue the case even on final hearing dates. So comrades, don’t get confused or carried away by the propaganda from any quarter.

Next date is 24.02.2015. Assn will be filing the counter reply shortly. Assn is pursuing with Management also to file the reply by BSNL in time.

GS and President told DIR(HR) that the Pers section is miserably failed in its duty as the repeated warnings given by the Assn on the slow pace of DPC work was never taken seriously by the concerned officers. It is the total failure of the Pers section as they could not get the ACRs and VCs from the Circles in time. The Pers section lost control over the Circles. Further Assn requested to explore all the possible legal options to get the stay vacated. DIR(HR) assured that he will personally monitor the developments and all measures will be taken to get the stay order vacated.
