SNEA strongly condemn the move of the BSNL Management to implement Deloitte recommendation as a pilot project in MH Circle, one of the potential Circles. This move is against the commitment given to Association that the recommendation will be considered for implementation only after discussion with all Unions /Associations.

SNEA strongly oppose the move and we will be forced to launch agitation if the decision is not reversed by the Mgt. Comrades across BSNL and especially in MH may start preparations in this regard.
