Hold demonstrations on 22-09-2009 (Tuesday), to protest against the arbitrary order of the BSNL management, violating the “PLI formula”, and sanctioning less bonus. This is the call of the United Forum of BSNL unions. Conduct the programme effectively by mobilising the workers fully.

V.A.N. Namboodiri

Convenor, United Forum

[19.09.2009] Bonus 2009 – one more arbitrary decision of BSNL management.

BSNL has issued order for this year’s bonus (PLI). Non-executives are paid only Rs. 3500/-. This is totally unacceptable to us and we condemn this arbitrary decision. As per BSNL’s MOU rating for this year, as per the bonus formula, Non-Executives are eligible for minimum bonus of Rs. 7000/-. This was conveyed to the CMD, BSNL and Director (HR), in categorical terms by BSNLEU and the United Forum, in the meeting held on 15-09-2009. Country wide Dharnas/demonstrations were also conducted by the United Forum on 17-09-2009. Despite all these, BSNL Board has arbitrarily decided to pay a paltry amount as bonus. Company’s reduced profit is not an excuse for denial of eligible bonus. Bonus formula is the only criteria, according to which Non-Executives are eligible for minimum bonus of Rs. 7000/-. In the case of Interim Relief, we compelled the management to modify it’s arbitrary order. Similarly, in the case of bonus also, BSNLEU and United Forum will get the arbitrary order modified.

Since our demand on bonus issue is not accepted by the BSNL management, United Forum calls upon, the employees to conduct dharna / demonstrations on 17.09.2009, at SSA levels. Organize effectively and make the programme a big success.

[15.09.2009]Notice for massive dharna on 11th August, 2009 at SSA / Circle level and 48-hours strike on 19-20 August, 2009 for settlement of wage revision and other demands <> <>

[15.09.2009]United Forum meets CMD, BSNL and Director (HRD) on Bonus issue:- As per decision of yesterday’s meeting of associations and unions of Executives and Non-Executives, meetings were held both with Shri Kuldeep Goyal, CMD, BSNL and Shri Gopal Das, Director (HRD) to-day, 15th September, 2009 on Bonus issue.

The unions demanded that the minimum bonus of Rs.7000/- to Rs.10,000/- be paid to the non-executives as paid during the last year. The CMD stated that since the profit has gone down only Rs.3500/- can be paid to non-executives and Rs.5000/- to executives. The CMD requested the unions to voluntarily forego Bonus this year in view of the company’s adverse financial positions. The unions protested and reiterated their demand for full bonus. NFTE, FNTO & BSNLWRU who were party to yesterday’s decision did not attend the meeting, despite they had agreed to come.

[15.09.2009]BSNL Associations & Unions Demand Full Bonus:- The meeting of the Associations / Unions of Executives and Non-executives held on 14.09.2009 at National Council Office, New Delhi, presided by Com. A.A. Khan (SNEA) strongly protested against the proposal of BSNL management to reduce this year Bonus to Rs.5000/- for executives and Rs.3500/- to non-executives. Com. V.A.N. Namboodiri, GS, BSNLEU explained the issue in detail.

After through discussion it was decided to meet the CMD BSNL on 15.09.2009 and convey our protest as also to demand for Bonus as last year. M-9426201999

Recently at AP very bad sutiation, in this connection so many officials demand to postponed the exams, but what about who are already taken classes and they loss their leaves etc, is it justified to postponed the exam?

Where as the gap (nearly Two months) between the flood and the exam very long, they can prepare easly who are loss in floods.

Please clarify whter in base exam can postponed? pls give replay
