Dear comrades,

Circle Secretary along with Com.J.Badrinarayanan ACS, Com.RameshKumar OS (North), Com.Ramalingam BS-AMB (O&M) and Com.Baranidharan BS-BSS met Shri.V.Gunasekaran PGM-North In charge at 14.15 Hrs in his chamber and discussed various developmental and staff issues pertaining to North Area. We have stressed the need for work study and equal distribution of load amongst the Executives to avoid demoralising effect. Specific instances of our grievances like non availability and not able distribute  of Vehicles last 21/4 years, lack of support from higher officers for important activity like FTTH penetration, etc., were also brought elaborately to the knowledge of PGM-North.

PGM-North agreed to our views and assured to have a detailed discussion with his Team of officers before finalising the redistribution of work so that nobody is aggrieved.

Since PGM-North is actually holding the charge of TXM, we have made use of this opportunity to discuss the TXM issues also especially with respect to acute shortage of staff/officers in core Area and on the need to streamline issues with regard to FTTH provisions. PGM-North has agreed to take up with CGM, the shortage of manpower during the proposed JTO-Posting and hopes to resolve this shortage  issue in both North & TXM areas.

Specific proposal of FTTH by our Com.S.Ramalingam [SDE-PML] was noted by PGM-North for perusal and early commissioning. The entire two Hours Discussion was very cordial and fruitful for BSNL-ChTD.


With warm regards,

04-10-2017 Lunch Hour demonstration held at Chennai TD

Lunch Hour Demonstration at Circle level prior to Candle Light March at New Delhi, was held in front of  O/o CGM ChTD on 04-10-2017@13:00 Hrs. Very good response was received for the lunch hour demonstration, both gents and lady comrades turned out in large numbers for the demonstration enthusiastically.

The demonstration was conducted with a single point demand “ Implement 3rd PRC with 15% benefits in BSNL”. Circle office bearers, Branch Secretaries and office bearers from Branches addressed the gathering. The gathering was welcomed by Com.P.Sangili Circle President,AIBSNLEA CHTD.  

Loud slogans of unity “AIBSNLEA Zindabad, Employees Unity Zindabad “ were chanted by Com B. Ganesan CWC Member and all the members followed it. Com Elango OS Central invited Leaders and Executives one by one for addressing the gathering. Speech was delivered by ACS Comrades J.Badrinarayanan, K.Raj Narayanan& S.Jaikumar, Com B.Nagarajan OS South, Com.V. Gurumurthy our Ex.FS, Com. S.Shivakumar FS and various members. All the comrades shared their views on immediate need for implementation of 3rd PRC. Com.Chokalingam SDE opinioned that BSNL,MTNL and Coal India together posses more than 80% of the total staff strength of all PSUs and hence profitability clause is not a valid clause for assessing all the PSUs under one condition. Also management is playing with the future of lakhs of employees. Com. Srinivasan CWC Member told that any fitment less than 15% is not acceptable and we all should stay together to achieve the bargaining power.   Com J.Badrinarayan ACS, described the need for unity of all Associations and Unions to attain our single point demand. Until achieving our demand we should stay together without seeing Union/Association and strong protest and agitation shall be arranged to open the eyes of management.

Com. C.KMathivanan CS NFTE, gave an speech on present scenario of 3rd PRC. Comrade highlighted that BSNL is a unique PSU and shall not be categorized along with any other PSU. BSNL is one of the very few PSUs fully owned by Govt of India, and most of the employees of BSNL enjoy the facilities like GPF, Pension etc directly from Govt of India fund. Therefore employees of BSNL possess the equal status of Govt Employees. Also no profitability clause was seen while implementing 7th CPC for ITS officers who are the so called BSNL Management, then why profitability clause is applied for employees alone. Hence we should not restrict ourselves with demand of 15%, and we shall try for much better benefits. 

            Comrade also warned that previously bonus was taken away from us by linking to profitability, now wages are being linked to profitability and in future management will link pension also with profitability. We the employees of BSNL, have earned Rs.27000/- crores for BSNL as revenue, and it is the mismanagement of BSNL management which led BSNL to losses.Comrade urged BSNL management for implementing 3rd PRC without any conditions.

CP AIBSNLOA, extended full support and contribution to the lunch hour demonstration till we see the victory of our demands.

Our senior Com.Ananthi AGM opinioned that ITS officers of BSNL are enjoyed all the fruits of BSNL and getting benefits in terms of 7th CPC and they are waiting to take the benefits of 3rd PRC in PSUs. But they are not ready to address the grass root level issues.

Our CS CHTD summed up the opinions of all the comrades and expressed happiness for large number of employees turned up for the demonstration. Further CS along with COBs, memorandum was submitted to CGM for taking up with BSNL CO for the benefit of all BSNL employees. Comrade CS also told that Management Committee has given positive note for PRC, and hoped that DoT will clear the pending points immediately.

This is a different platform for agitation unlike any other demands. The same spirit shown by members shall be continued in further agitation programs also. This fight will be intensified and continued till we achieve our single point  demand “ Implement 3d PRC with 15% benefits in BSNL”. CS thanked all the Executives participated in the demonstration and wished all the best for Candle Light March at New Delhi @18hrs.

AIBSNLEA Zindabad !!

Employees Unity Zindabad!!!

03-10-2017 Massive Lunch Hour Demonstration on 04-10-17 at CGM Office CHTD

Massive Lunch Hour Demonstration is being  organised by AIBSNLEA in front of CGM Office Chennai TD at 13:00 Hrs on 04-10-2017, in continuation to the national level “Candle Light March” at 18:00 Hrs from BSNL CO Janpath to Jantar Mantar, New Delhi. This huge demonstration is supported by BSNL Unions and Associations. We have only one demand “IMPLEMENT 3rd PRC With 15% Fitment Benefits in BSNL”. This is the right opportunity for all the employees in Executive/Non-Executive cadre for showing our strength to the Management and to demand our rights for 3rd PRC.

 All the ACS’s, OS’s, Area Secretary(N), CWC & CEC Members, Branch Secretaries/ Executives are requested to contact each member individually and ensure participation of all our members for the Lunch Hour Demonstration.

Dear colleagues we have raised this company by our sweat and hard work, and this point when all the factors are turning against us, we have to unite and show our strength. When ITS Officers who are on deputation to  BSNL are enjoying all the benefits of 7th Pay revision, we the real blood of BSNL, is denied its rights. A right blow at the right time can   win us a huge victory.

Come and Participate in the demonstration. This fight is not for an individual or group, this is fight for benefit of all the employees of BSNL and for the betterment of BSNL.

Let us listen to his words again  

“A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption of our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider of our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us the opportunity to do so.”
