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.

[18.09.2009] Bonus : - CHQ congratulates all comrades for effectively conducting Dharna / demonstrations yesterday the 17-09-2009, at a very short notice, demanding minimum bonus of Rs.7000 for all Non- Executives. So far no order is issued on bonus. It is understood that the Board of Directors have taken some decision on 15-09-2009 itself. CHQ is taking efforts for the issuing of the order without further delay.
