A meeting of the Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations is held today, mainly to discuss the issue of non-implementation of the agreement signed with the Management on 78.2% IDA fixation. Representatives of BSNLEU, NFTE, SNEA, AIBSNLEA, BSNL MS, BSNL WRU, BSNL BTU attended the meeting. Com.P.Abhimanyu, GS and Com.Swapan Chakraborty, AGS represented BSNLEU. The meeting is of the opinion that DoT is delaying the settlement of 78.2% IDA fixation issue, by seeking unnecessary queries from BSNL Management. At the same time the BSNL Management is also not showing any interest in finding any solution to the issue. Hence, the meeting unanimously decided to launch the following trade union action. If the issue remains unsettled even after conducting these agitations, then the Forum will meet again on 22-02-2013, and will launch drastic trade union struggle to settle the issue.

Programme of action:-

1) During the period of 28th to 30th January, the District Secretaries of all the Unions and Associations of Forum, should send the following savingram to the Secretary, DoT, with copies to the Hon'ble Minister of Communications and to CMD BSNL.
2) To conduct demonstrations on 11-02-2013.
3) District level Dharna programme on 15-02-2013.

Text of savingram:-

"Demand immediate implementation of the agreement
 on 78.2% IDA merger."

 [21.01.2013] Meidia reports on BSNL'S VRS Scheme.
News has come in some newspapers today, regarding BSNL'S VRS plan. It is sensationally reported in those papers, that BSNL has proposed to send one lakh employees home, through it's VRS scheme. There is nothing new in this news. Every one knows that BSNL has already sent a proposal for VRS to the government more than a year ago. But the question is, who will give money required for implementing this VRS? It requires more than RS. 20, 000 crore. Moreover, after spending such a huge amount, BSNL will be saving only around Rs.3, 000 crore annually, in the wage bill. Hence, as per some reliable sources, the govt. is thinking, whether it is wise to spend such a huge amount for BSNL's VRS scheme.
