[06.08.2009]Remembering the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: - August 6 – It is on this day 64 years earlier (in 1945) that the United States dropped the Atom Bomb on the city of Hiroshima in Japan, killing thousands of people and maiming for life more than that number. The entire city was burnt. Thousands of people are still suffering the radiation. After 3 days, on 9th August 1945 the US dropped another and more powerful bomb in Nagasaki with more destruction and loss of lives. Capitalism and Imperialism have no value for the human lives and will resort to any cruelty and atrocity.

Along with the crores of peace loving people in the world, we also pay homage to those who died and who are still suffering.

No More Hiroshima, No More Nagasaki

VAN Namboodiri, GS BSNLEU

BSNLEU took up the case with DoT in the joint committee and demanded that pension should be given. Now DoT has agreed and orders have been issued granting pension for that increment. A very good achievement.

[05.08.2009]A letter to CMD, BSNL - Strengthening BSNL to serve better<>

[04.08.2009]Ignore Rumours:- After the utter defeat in the IV Verification, certain unions have become panicky. It has become a habit with them to spread rumours so that even if they cannot convince the workers, they can at least confuse them. It is the same strategy they used in the membership verification, but the workers ignored all those rumours and defeated them. This is what is going to happen again. Ignore those rumours with the contempt it deserve.

[04.08.2009]48 hours Strike on 19th and 20th August 2009:- The strike notice has been given on 31st July to the management. The BSNL workers are preparing for the strike. We have written to all non-executive unions to participate in the strike on the vital issues of the workers. We hope that they will consider our letter and join the mainstream.

The Wage Revision, Promotions, Anomaly, Casual /Contract labour wages, Issues of BSNL Pensioners etc. are the most important issues at present. It will be clearly seen now who stand with the workers issues and who support the management. Workers issues are more important than the union rivalries. In the coal sector all the workers stood together, fought and got 52% fitment benefit during the last 10 years from 1997. Don’t we want the higher fitment and five years agreement? Certainly we want.

All the demands raised by are genuine and we will have to fight for that. Let us be prepared for a very successful strike.

Joint Forum Meets:- A meeting of Joint Forum of BSNL Association / Union of Executives and Non-Executives was held on 16.07.2009 at National Council staff side room under the chairmanship of Com. V. Subburaman, General Secretary, TEPU. Com. V.A.N. Namboodiri, Convenor, Joint Forum, reported about the action taken on the decisions of the last meeting. The meeting decided to organize the “Anti-Disinvestment Day” on 22.07.2009 in a very effective manner.

The Joint Forum met again after meeting the CMD BSNL. It reiterated its decision to implement the “Anti Disinvestment Day” with maximum participation.

NFTE will join Programme on 22.07.2009:- NFTE in its website has published its decision to participate in the “Anti-Disinvestment Day” programme called by CPSTU. Joint Forum will only be happy to organize the same jointly.

[17.07.2009] Simple Commonsense, Comrade

Promotion Policy – NFTE Comments : - NFTE in its website has commented that while in the website of BSNLEU it is stated that the Promotion Policy is approved by DoT but in Telecrusader July, 2009 it is stated that General Secretary met Secretary, DoT and demanded for approval of Promotion Policy.

It is simple commonsense, Comrade. The website information is latest while the Telecrusader information is earlier one. The website news was dated 02.07.2009, while the Telecrusader was given for printing on 30.06.2009. NFTE certainly should understand these simple things as they also are publishing journals and have got website.

[16.07.2009] Who are the Agents of Management?

A perusal of the following will clearly reveal who are the agents of management.

1. Who agreed for Ban on creation of posts in 1984/85? - NFTE – FNTO

2. Who agreed to reduce 1,50,000 vacancies in the name of restructure of cadres? - NFTE – FNTO

3. Who agreed to surrender supervisory posts for getting BCR Promotion? – NFTE – FNTO

4. Who surrendered FR 22(i)(a)(i) in 1999 for promotions? - NFTE – FNTO

5. Who agreed for corporatisation which has resulted in many difficulties for workers? - NFTE – FNTO

6. Who agreed for VRS for 50,000 BSNL Workers in National Council? - NFTE – FNTO

7. Who gave such memorandum to V CPC which resulted in reduced pay scales for Telecom Cadres compared to Postal & other CGES? - NFTE – FNTO

8. Who demanded Rs.1000/- extra only to BSNL Workers on Conversion from DoT to BSNL? - NFTE-FNTO

9. Who are now getting signatures from employees for accepting whatever is offered by management, even when it is less than justified? - NFTE – FNTO

After BSNLEU got recognition, the VRS was got dropped. FR 22(i)(a)(i) has been restored in New Promotion Policy. Promotion Policy has been signed reducing the decades old discrimination between executives and non-executives.

The workers understand all these. And that is why despite the fact that NFTE & FNTO which both together got about 1,45,000 votes in the first verification have been reduced to 95,000 in the IV Verification and BSNLEU which got 90,000 in the first verification got 1,24,000 in the IV Verification defeating the formers alliance by more than 28,000 votes.

[16.07.2009]Is NFTE conveniently forgetting or purposely hiding facts? <>

[15.07.2009] HOW FUNNY ! :- FNTO has put in its website a form asking workers to sign and submit it to management with regard to wage revision. In the letter it is stated that “Kindly award pay scales as recommended by second pay review committee.”

Second Pay Review Committee was appointed to recommend wage revision for executives only and it had no connection with the pay revision non-executives and not recommended any pay scales for non-executives. But interestingly FNTO is asking the workers to request the management to award pay scales recommended by the Committee !

Funny Indeed !

[15.07.2009]Due to Mismanagement

BSNL had to pay Rs.1000 crore as extra interest - CAG Report

In what highlights mismanagement in government-run companies, BSNL failed to return a government loan of Rs. 7,500 crore when it had a disposable reserve of more than Rs. 18,000 crore. This resulted in the company paying an interest of over Rs. 1,000 crore.

The country's biggest telecom company parked its surplus funds in banks to earn an interest of 6% - 7% when it was already paying interest of 14.5% for the loan.

"BSNL failed to return government loan of Rs. 7,500 crore inspite of having adequate cash reserves of Rs. 18,829 crore as of March 2005 parked in bank deposits with average rate of return of 6.19% to 7.38% per annum against the rate of interest of 14.50% for the loan," a CAG report on BSNL tabled in Parliament on Monday said.

"This imprudent financial management resulted in excess expenditure of Rs. 1,089 crore on interest payment,” it added. [Source: The Times of India, dated 14.07.2009]

The report also brought out alleged financial mismanagement, wasteful expenditure and excess payment aggregating Rs.1,164.38 crore by BSNL. [Source: The Economic Times, dated 14.07.2009]

This actually means (apart from periodicity), they don’t want benefit of merger of 50% IDA, which has already been approved by DPE but not yet implemented for BSNL executives. Moreover, they want that non-executives pay scales be constructed in relation to present E-1 minimum pay of Rs.16,400/-, since proposed E-1 A pay scale has not yet been granted.


In their memorandum supposed to be signed by employees, they demanded: “Kindly award pay scales as recommended by Second Pay Review Committee.”

What a joke indeed !

2nd Pay Review Committee was for executives and its recommendations confined to executives only. No pay scale for non-executives recommended by 2nd Pay Review Committee.

[02.07.2009]Defeat the Disruption:- Certain unions in collaboration with management are circulating a copy of representation to be sent to CMD BSNL declaring willingness to accept what has been offered by management on wage revision. This is nothing but a trap against the interests of the BSNL Workers for getting a better wage revision like in other major PSUs.

Earlier, a similar representation accepting managements offer of interim advance (4 months) floated by these unions were completely defeated by the workers. United Forum through a strike agreement got 6 months advance and new HRA rates for workers.

Now again, the present nefarious move has also to be defeated. Mir Jafars and Jayachandras can not allowed to cheat the workers.

The union pressed the management to agree for fitment benefit on par with top executives, on Pay+78.2% of pay instead of Pay+68.8% of pay. The Management Side said that for BSNL executives, the issue of granting fitment benefit on Pay+78.2% of pay was not yet decided by the management. Union said that in several PSUs this was already accepted and implemented for the executives. Management agreed to examine. Discussion took place on the demands like increment at the rate of 5% on basic pay, Grant of two increments for pay fixation on promotion, perks and allowances on par with executives and pension scheme for BSNL recruitees. The discussion was inconclusive.

Com. V.A.N. Namboodiri, General Secretary, Com. P. Asokababu, AGS, and Com. K.R. Yadav, Vice President, represented the BSNLEU. Next meeting of the committee is likely to be held in next week.

[02.06.2009] Wage Revision discussions to resume:- The Staff Side walked out from the meeting of the Wage Revision Committee on 22nd April, 2009, due to the negative attitude adopted by the Management, on the question of Interim Relief and implementation of the New HRA Rates. However, a settlement is reached between the United Forum and the management on 18.05.2009, in the back drop of the two day's strike notice issued by the United Forum. Consequent upon this settlement, management has fixed date for holding the meeting of the Wage Revision Committee on 5th June, 2009.

[02.06.2009] Meeting of the Steering Committee of the United Forum:- A meeting of the Steering Committee of the United Forum is held in the National Council Office, on 2nd June, 2009. Coms. V.A.N.

[01.06.2009] Com. V.A.N. Namboodiri, GS, BSNLEU discussed the following issues with DoT Officers

1). 50% IDA Merger for BSNL retirees: - As per legal cell (DoT) advise, the matter is referred to DoP&W, Govt. of India. CHQ is perusing the case. 2). Promotion Policy for Non-executives: - The matter is being examined by DoT. General Secretary, BSNLEU demanded for early approval.

[15.05.09] Revised Pension Rules as per VI CPC for BSNL Retirees issued:- As assured by Shri R. Ashok, Member (Finance) to Com. V.A.N. Namboodiri, General Secretary, BSNLEU, orders have now been issued on 14.05.2009 by DoT raising DCRG limit from Rs. 3.5 to Rs. 10 lakhs and allowing revised Pension rules regarding Commutation table, emoluments, qualifying service etc. as per VI CPC recommendations.

[01.05.09] ONE HOUR WALK OUT ON 04.05.2009 : - BSNL management has arbitrarily issued order on 30.04.2009, granting very meager amount of Interim Relief, equivalent to 4 months basic pay. CHQ BSNLEU condemns the decision of the management, granting paltry amount as IR, as well the arbitrary manner in which the order is issued.

United Forum of BSNL unions has given call to BSNL employees to walk out from duty/office, for one hour on Monday the 4th May 2009. Mobilise the workers to give a fitting reply to the BSNL management’s high handedness.

[30.04.09]What is our demand on Interim Relief ?

Interim Relief is usually granted when the due wage revision is delayed. For Central Public Sector employees, wage revision is due w.e.f. 01-01-2007. Already, more than 27 months have elapsed. Management should have offered IR when there has been such long delay. Most of the other PSUs have granted either interim relief or pay advance much earlier. Even after BSNLEU/United Forum of BSNL Unions demanded interim relief, the management did not take any decision. The demand of the UF is that Interim Relief of 50% of pay or Rs. 3000/- whichever is more be paid. If it is pay advance, Rs. 50,000/- to Rs.80,000/- be paid. This is similar to what is paid in the other PSUs.

The management first offered two months basic pay as advance. This will come to Rs.8,000/- at the lowest level. After much discussion in the meeting on 29-04-09, CMD offered 4 months basic pay ie. Rs. 16,000/- at the lowest level. We could not accept such very meagre advance. The workers are eligible for increase for the last 27 months since 01-01-07.Even if an advance of Rs. 1000/- p.m. is calculated, then it will come to Rs. 27,000/.It is pertinent to note here that in the conversion from CDA to IDA in 2000, all officials got more than Rs.1500/- p.m. But the management is not prepared to see reason and comparison with other PSUs and concede our demands.

United Forum is not adamant that whatever it demanded should be fully accepted. But there is always a bench mark below which it is impossible to agree.

When even the lowest executive is being paid Rs. one lakh as arrears (40% already paid and 60% being paid in 2008-09), leave alone the top executives who are being paid arrears of about 6 lakhs or so, why the non-executives can not be paid even half of it? Can we accept such meagre offer? Certainly not.

Let us seriously prepare for the two days strike on 19-20th May 2009. Meet each and every worker and explain our demands and the management's negative response.
