17.05.2016:CHQ NEWS: Congratulations to all: Comrades, our unity and commitment leading to resolution of the long pending issues: In view of the Relay Hunger Strike from tomorrow onwards, CMD and DIR(HR) called SNEA for detailed discussion on various HR issues as decided in the meeting held on 13.05.2016. From Assn side GS, President, AGS and Jt Sec attended the meeting. GM(Pers), GM(Estt), GM(SR), Addl GM(Pers) and DGM(Estt) was present in the meeting.
At the outset CMD told that he had taken it very seriously that a very responsible Assn like SNEA gone for agitation at a very crucial period. This year is very crucial for BSNL as 3rd PRC is fully depending on this years performance. All the issues will be resolved in a time bound manner, CMD assured.
GS and President explained the compulsion of the Assn to serve notice as no decision is taken on Joint Committee recommendations even after 7 months even though all the three Assns given a unanimous recommendation, thousands of JTOs, JAOs, SDEs, AOs officiated as SDE, AO, DE, CAO in DoT and BSNL before 19.02.2010 are facing recovery and reduction of pay due to wrong clarifications, on 30% superannuation the assurances are not followed, notional pay for Civil/Elect etc not considered so far etc giving an impression that management is not serious on resolving the issues. Eventhough the time schedule given after the meeting with DIR(HR) is reasonable, Assn want concrete action plan how the issues are going to be resolved within the target dates:
After that discussions held on various agenda items:
1. Implementation of Joint Committee recommendations on:
a) Standard pay scales of E2, E3 replacing E1A and E2A. Assn strongly pleaded for its early implementation as 3rd PRC is fast approaching. Already there is a unanimous opinion in the Khan Committee on the issue and hence there is no justification for delaying the matter further. The five assured promotions should not be disturbed. The cascading effect also to be considered from E3 to E4, E4 to E5, E5 to E6 and E6 to E7, Assn demanded. On this CMD informed that there is an additional financial implication of more than 200 Cores for this alone and DoT may not agree for change of all the pay scales. After detailed discussion, CMD assured that first, Khan Committee recommendation will be implemented by replacing E1A to E2 and E2A to E3 by making necessary changes in the EPP to protect the five TB promotions and it will not be linked with cascading factor. It will be taken to MC and approved latest by 31st May, as assured. CMD categorically assured that it is the responsibility of BSNL management to get it approved from DoT and he personally taken the responsibility for that. On our repeated pleading for cascading effect from E3 to E4, E4 to E5, E5 to E6 and E6 to E7, CMD assured that it will be considered after this.
b) Time Bound Functional promotion or CPSU cadre hierarchy:
GM(Pers) explained the status of the issue. Assn demanded that as a onetime measure, Executives on higher pay scales may be promoted to the next higher grade without DPC by taking VC, as DPCs are already done for TBP. Further pleaded that the DPCs should be decentralised, promotion shall be based on recruitment year wise giving relaxation to the qualifying service for the Executives recruited/promoted in the same vacancy year, uniform date of promotion, change of designation by giving designation followed in BSNLCO like Asst Manager for JTO, Dy Manager for SDE, Manager for Sr SDE, Asst General Manager for DE etc. Assn expressed its concern over the delay as a simple issue like standard pay scales taken so much time, so management is not serious on this issue also. On this CMD directed GM(Pers) to stick to the target date. GM(Pers) assured CMD, DIR(HR) and Assn that the draft will be ready by the target date of 31st August.
c) Uniform TBP between 4 to 5 years instead of 4 to 6 years w.e.f 01.10.2000.
Assn strongly protested as this issue was not even reflected in the letter on action plan on various issues. GM(Pers) explained that it is linked with CPSU and will be processed after that and hence not shown as a separate item. Assn explained that this can be settled earlier itself and it has to be implemented w.e.from 01.10.2000. Since CPSU related work is already started, finally it was assured that it will be processed immediately after that. Necessary correction in the action plan also will be made.
2. Officiating pay fixation, pay protection – withdrawal of wrong clarifications issued on 30.05.2007 and 19.02.2010.
Assn explained the issue in detail. Management side maintained that a committee examined the matter and found that the orders/clarifications are correct. Now after submission of further data, mgt agreed that it will be re-examined based on the additional inputs given by the Assn like MC Note, Hon SC orders, FRSR etc. Assn demanded that since the clarifications are wrong and it is against the provisions of EPP order dated 18.01.2007 and FRSR, it has to be withdrawn immediately. Pay protection is provided under FRSR and as long as FRSR is followed in BSNL, it cannot take a contradictory stand. Thousands of SDEs, AOs, DEs and CAOs are facing pay reduction and recovery by the wrong clarification.
After thorough discussion, management finally agreed to withdraw both the clarifications dated 30.05.2007 (sl no.10) and 19.02.2010(sl no.4 and 9). This is a great breakthrough and will give relief to more than 15,000 SDEs, AOs, DEs and CAOs who are facing pay reduction and recovery by the wrong clarification. By this, this issue will be fully settled.
3. 30% Superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited Employees.
As assured in the meeting with DIR(HR), the contribution will be worked out after the recalculation of the medical expenditure.
4. Membership verification among Executives Associations by addressing the issues raised. Restoration of trade union facilities and deduction of subscription from Salary till membership verification is conducted.
Mgt side explained that salary deduction cannot be implemented as it will influence the verification. Then Assn demanded that the verification has to be done as notified earlier and there is no stay on the verification as claimed by the mgt. On this CMD and DIR(HR) responded very positively and directed concerned officers to take all necessary actions to complete the verification at the earliest in a time bound manner. Finally management decided to conduct the membership verification due to our struggle. This will be another breakthrough.
5. Promotions in different wings from JTO to SDE, JAO to AO, SDE to DE/EE, AAO to CAO and DE to DGM.
DIR(HR) informed that all efforts are being taken to resolve the court cases. A senior lawyer from Hon Supreme Court is deputed to Ernakulam for final arguments. Similarly other cases also will be dealt.
6. Notional pay of E1A and E2A for Civil/Elect wings w.e.f 01.10.2000.
Assn explained the Vinai Shahi Committee report, BSNL Board decision etc. Earlier it was linked with JAO pay scales but now it is settled for JAO in isolation. But only for Civil/Elect wings Executives, E1A and E2A pay scales are not implemented. BSNL policy is a) uniform promotion policy and b) uniform pay scales for all the equivalent cadres in different wings. To have uniform pay scales of E1A and E2A for all the JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs it has to be implemented for Civil/Elect etc wings also w.e.f 01.10.2000. After discussion CMD directed concerned officers to settle the issue favourably ensuring uniform pay scales for all the Executives w.e.f 01.10.2000. This issue was pending for years together and after the intervention of CMD and DIR(HR), it is getting settled. This is another major breakthrough in todays meeting.
7. First Time Bound Promotion after 4 years from Lateral JTO and Sr SDE grades as done in the case of AAO and Sr AO grades.
It is decided to examine the case as per earlier discussion. Assn clearly told that it will not tolerate any discrimination. Management assured that there will not be any discrimination and the whole issue will be examined in totality as per the time schedule.
Our sincere gratitude to CMD, BSNL and DIR(HR) for their timely intervention and taken bold steps to resolve the issues in a time bound manner.
There are no words to congratulate all the Executives, especiaaly our SNEA comrades who stood solidly behind the issues and struggled shoulder to shoulder. Hats off to them. Congratulations to all the CSs, SSA/Branch secretaries and office bearers and activists at different level for their effective leadership to make the struggle a grand success.
Our struggle will ensure that the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.1.2007, ie 2007, 2008, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015 and future recruits getting E2 scale starting with Rs 20600. This will set the stage for implementation of 3rd PRC. When the others tried their best to derail the issue by raising irrelevant things, our struggle saved the issue.
we had only deferred the agitation programme, not withdrawn it
knowing very well that lot of negative forces are working against the
resolution of the issues. We should be very careful about their
tactics. We have to keep all the organizational preparedness to
respond in a short notice if there is any deviation from the
commitment and target dates.
16.05.2016: Relay Hunger Strike on 18th, 19th and 20th May 2016 at Circle/SSA HQs:
All the COBs and D.Ss please make extensive preparations to make the Relay Hunger Strike successful. Our demand of standard pay scales of E2, E3 with five promotions (with or without cascading effect) for the JTO/JAOs recruited after 01.01.2007 should settle before constitution of 3rd PRC. Settlement of CPSU cadre Hierarchy, 1st TBP, 30% superannuation benefit with minimum 6% as promised, Officiating pay protection, Notional pay of E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.10.2000 for Civil/Elect etc etc are fully depends upon the success of our struggle. All Executives are requested to join this movement for the upliftment of the cadres.
15.05.2016: Both Assns should explain why they are opposing the changes in EPP to address the anomalies now itself as recommended by the Khan Committee (2nd part of the recommendation) by modifying the EPP from 01.01.2007 along with the pay scales proposal?
Why they are insisting to create anomaly and continue with anomaly evenafter knowing very well that huge anomalies will happen? Already large number of anomalies like Officiating pay fixation and pay protection, Antedating, seniors getting less pay than the Juniors etc etc remain unaddressed and mgt is not addressing it even after Supreme Court orders.
Why both Assns demanding to create anomaly and reduce the pay by one increment for thousands of SDEs or AOs who got one additional increment on promotion as DE or CAO between 01.10.2009 and 01.10.2014 in E4 scale? According to their plan, all will reach E5 scale on 01.10.2009 itself instead of 01.10.2014. Thousands of them are retired. They want to make their life also miserable?
Why both Assns demanding to create anomaly and reduce one promotion for the seniors to E6 scale which is due on 01.10.2019 which will affect the pension also? According to their plan, all will reach E6 scale on 01.10.2014 itself instead of 01.10.2019.
Why both Assns demanding to create anomaly and miss the additional increment got on DGM promotion recently in E5 scale? According to their plan, all will reach E6 scale on 01.10.2014.
Why both Assns demanding to create an anomaly that JTOs as on 01.10.2000 in E1A scale and promoted as SDEs in 2004 will reach E4 scale in 2008 and SDEs as on 01.10.2000 in E2A scale will reach E4 scale on 01.10.2009?
Why both Assns want to create anomaly and want to reduce the promotions for the youngsters and seniors from five to four?
Analysing these likely anomalies, Khan Committee recommended to make necessary changes in the EPP to protect the promotions and pay. Surprisingly they are opposing it now! Whether they made the recommendations without knowing the facts or simply made recommendations? Or without knowing the issues and its implications, simply making the noises now to divert the attention and delay and derail the implementation?
They have no concern for the juniors or seniors or the future recruits? If they are sincere in their statements, they have to allow management to implement the Khan Committee recommendations fully, without any dilution, ie. Recommendation of replacement of E1A by E2, E2A by E3 with necessary changes in the EPP as recommedded. SNEA will not allow any dilution of the recommendations which creates anomaly, reduction in number of promotions, pay reduction and recovery etc.
SNEA stand from 2002 onwards is very clear and firm, we want E2, E3, E3, ---, E7. In 2002, we could achieve E1A, E2A, ----, E6 but never left our original demand. During 2nd PRC, again we are struggling for E2, E3 to E7. Now we are reaching near to our goal of E2 to E7 by getting E2 to E6 now with five promotions. We will continue our struggle for the original demand of E2, E3, ---, E7 during 3rd PRC with five promotions.
15.05.2016: Meeting with CMD, BSNL on 13.05.2016: CMD BSNL had a brief meeting with GSs of SNEA, AIBSNLEA and AIGETOA. Eventhough we are not interested for a combined meeting, after continues request, GS attended the meeting. CMD sought the opinion of the Assns on two issues:
1) Implementation of Khan Committee recommendation on standard pay scales of E2, E3: First AIBSNLEA told their view that as per the recommendation; E1A should be replaced by E2 and E2A by E3. Anomalies if any should be settled later by changes in the EPP after implementation.
SNEA reiterated its stand that the committee recommendation is to be implemented in totality from the beginning. It can be implemented in two ways: a) with cascading effect: E2(JTO), E3(SDE), E4(Sr SDE), E5(DE), E6(DGM) and E7(SG DGM), in that case no change is required in EPP which was our original demand or b) by simply replacing E1A with E2 and E2A with E3. ie. E2(JTO), E3(SDE), E3(Sr SDE), E4(DE), E5(DGM), E6(SG DGM) with necessary changes in EPP as recommended by Khan committee to protect five promotions and anomalies.
As per Khan Committee, one Executive has to work in E3 (pre-revised E2A) scale in SDE grade for 5 years and in Sr SDE grade for 5 years in the same E3 (pre-revised E3) scale already approved by DoT. In other words, on Khan Committee implementation also, one Executive has to work in E3 scale for 10 years, 5 years as SDE and 5 years as Sr SDE.
Since mgt is not ready to implement the first option with cascading effect, the second option is acceptable to us to resolve the issue provided management is ensuring promotion and fixation benefit from SDE to Sr SDE in the same E3 scale after 5 years, GS told.
As per Khan Committee recommendation, one executive has to work 5 years as SDE in E3 scale and 5 years as Sr SDE in E3 scale. If Khan Committee felt that an Executive has to work only 5 years in E3 scale, it would not have recommended E2A to E3 scale again, since E3 scale was already approved by DoT in 2009 itself as replacement scale for pre-revised E3 for the Sr SDE/Sr AO. Only E1A to E2 was sufficient. Both Assns should have demanded only E1A to E2. Then why simply creating confusion now, we could not understand. Is it a calculated move to derail its implementation?
2. MT Rect: There is no requirement of Extl MT as abundant talent is available within the company. Thousands of highly talented and experienced Executives are available within BSNL. MT(Intl) is a fast track promotion for the meritorious candidates, another fast track promotion like LDCE. The rect should be completed at the earliest as the candidates already lost one precious year due to the delay. The number can be increased from 150 to 300, About 11,000 Executives applied for the MT(Intl) rect, GS told. More than the employees, it is the requirement of the company to build a top management from among the potential talent within BSNL as ITS officers are leaving BSNL and there will be total vacuum at GM/CGM level. GS told CMD that SNEA and AIBSNLEA fought for eligibility to all the Executives of BSNL for appearing in the MT(Intl) exam by launching agitation and even fought legal battle at Ernakulam and PCAT New Delhi and now they had taken a U Turn on the issue. SNEA always stood on principles and continue with that.
Since there is no further improvement on the issues, all efforts are to be made to make the Relay Hunger Strike from 18-20, May 2016 a grand success.
15.05.2016 Some examples to clear the doubts on implementation of the Khan Committee recommendations.
There will be No change in the pay or pay scales except E1A will be changed as E2 and E2A will be changed as E3, financial upgradations (EPP), date of next upgradation etc for the Executives recruited in DoT/BSNL, prior to 01.01.2007.
14.05.2016: All the District Secretaries, Circle Office Bearers and SNEA activists of AP make all out preparations for the success of the RELAY HUNGER STRIKE from 18-05-2016 to 20-05-2016.
We have to be very careful about those who are playing with the future of the Executives after making recommendations for E2, E3 pay scales without cascading effect and during implementation time, making noises demanding cascading effect. They are already exposed since they didn’t make any recommendation for cascading effect. They were silent from 2012 to 2015. They never interested in E2, E3 scales for the new recruits from the beginning, never pursued it in BSNL or DoT or DPE to get the E1A and E2A scales rejected. They are for E1+5 increments. In the committee also they tried to derail it by demanding E2 scale from 01.10.2000. Even in the meeting with DIR(HR) on 26.04.2016, they mentioned that they are happy with E1, E2, -- E6 if cascading is not given.
The present move is a very clever and calculated move to derail its implementation demanding cascading effect or reducing the promotion from five to four, knowing very well that management will not accept it. Evenif management accepts, Board and DoT will reject it. Their only intension is to confuse the Executives, promising changes in pay scales for all and ultimately force management even not to implement simple E2 and E3 pay scales, our comrades should understand.
Mgt also never interested to implement it rather tried their best to demote the JTO/JAO, SDE/AO cadres from E1A to E1 and E2A to E2. When SNEA started agitation, Joint Committee reconstituted in 2015. Committee made sweeping recommendations on standard pay scales, CPSU Hierarchy and 1st TBP. Their agenda suits management, which doesn’t want to implement E2, E3. If management is sincere, it will implement the recommendations in toto without any further delay as promised. If that is not happening, it can be presumed that this drama is going on with the support of management to scuttle the pay scales, CPSU Hierarchy and 1st TBP. We should not allow this to happen. No pay scales means, no CPSU Hierarchy and no 1st TBP. The 3rd PRC implementation will become an impossible task.
Officiating pay fixation and pay protection is another issue where thousands of Executives, SDEs, AOs, DEs and CAOs facing pay reduction to the tune of one or two increments. It has to be corrected immediately. DPCs are to be expedited. Assurance of 6% on superannuation benefit is to be implemented. Membership verification to be completed immediately to decide the majority Association. Justice is to be rendered to the Executives of Civil/Elect wings.
comrades, make extensive preparations for the relay hunger strike
from 18-20, May, 2016 and other future programmes. It
is a do or die battle for us.
11.05.2016: Congratulations Comrades,
administrative approval is given by the competent authority to
implement E2, E3 pay scales replacing E1A and E2A. This is the direct
impact of our agitation conducted today. The proposal will be placed
before the MC of BSNL Board for approval.
11.05.2016: Today's Maha dharna call given by CHQ SNEA is conducted successfully and enthusiastically throughout AP Circle with full participation by the members of SNEA AP. SNEA AP Congratulates all the SNEA members, activists, D.Ss and COBs of SNEA AP Circle for particiating in today's Mass Dharna. KEEP IT UP COMRADES
details of discussions by SNEA CHQ with the management is given
11.05.2016:CHQ NEWS: Discussion with SNEA and others on various HR issues:
Response from Management on various HR issues with target dates
11.05.2016:CHQ NEWS: Meeting with DIR(HR): As per the direction of CMD, BSNL, DIR(HR) invited SNEA for the discussion in the morning around 10 AM. After the Dharna started at BSNLCO, the discussion started at 11.10 am and continued for one and half hours. GS, CHQ President and AGS participated. During discussions, Assn clearly told management that sufficient discussions were already held on the issues but no concrete decision has come. In the name of consensus, issues are dragging. Already there is a consensus on some of the issues and Joint Committee recommendations are made.
DIR(HR) informed that on implementation of standard pay scales of E2 and E3 replacing intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A, Administrative decision will be taken today itself to implement the recommendations as it is. Assn once again made its stand very clear that E2, E3 scales should be implemented immediately from 01.01.2007 replacing E1A and E2A without disturbing the 5 time bound promotions already Executives having as recommended by the Khan Committee.
Further discussions held on CPSU Hierarchy, 1st TBP, Offtg pay protection, 30% superannuation, Ist TBP from JTO(LA) and Sr SDE after 4 years, Notional pay scale of E1A and E2A for JTO/SDE(C/E) etc w.e.f 01.10.2000. On these issues, management is trying to settle them in a time bound manner and the time schedule will be intimated to all, DIR(HR) informed.
we had seen lot of assurances in the past also. This time we have to
ensure that management is taking concrete decisions to settle the
issues. So, make extensive preparations for the next programme from
18th to 20th May, 2016. Campaigning may be done by making special GBs
at SSA level. Our CSs and other office bearers should start touring
09.05.2016: CHQ NEWS: Make all out preparations for the success of the Mass Dharna on 11.05.2016 at BSNLCO, Circle/SSA HQs. Resolution of the issues fully depends upon the success of the TU programmes. All important issues like promotions, pay scales, CPSU Hierarchy and 1st TBP, pay protection, memebership verification, notion pay etc etc are pending for years together.
All the Executives are requested to participate in the Dharna and make it 100% success.
Why Recommendation of Joint Committee is not implemented by BSNL?
Truth in reference to the SDE and Sr. SDE to remain in E3 pay scales for 10 years: Comrades, being a member of Joint Committee and having signed the recommendation on Standard pay scales of E2 and E3 replacing the non standard pay scales of E1A and E2A for JTOs and SDEs, it was known to all constituent Associations that SDE and Sr. SDE will remain in E3 pay scale for 10 years because SDE in E2A scale is getting upgraded to E3 scale, 5 years in advance. That is why provision is made in recommendation that necessary provision/changes in EPP should be made to give one increment after five years for TBP from SDE to Sr. SDE Grade.
Our humble appeal to all members of Joint Committee is, LET US HONOUR OUR OWN RECOMMENDATIONS and maintain same stand in discussion with Sr. Management of BSNL to pave way for E2 and E3 pay scale implementation for JTO and SDE cadres before 3rd PRC.
