On 01-05-2017, Foundation day of AIBSNLEA/May Day , General Secretary AIBSNLEA served letter to CMD BSNL for resolving the standard pay scale issue of standard pay scale –   by replacement scales for pre-revised E1A, E2A pay scales for JTOs, SDEs & equivalent cadre and grant E2, E3, E4, E5, E6 and E7 Scales for JTO, SDE, Sr. SDE, AGM, DGM and SG-DGM and equivalent posts to DoT.

<<Letter to CMD>>

With this GS stood up with the thoughts of members and image of GS has gone high. This letter was reflection of the common opinion in the Association, and as a result of the demands of senior members of the Association. Hence, what audacity Secretary of other Associations have to request our members to protest against our GS. On resolution of E1A/E2A with E2/E3, executives will be forced to stay in E3 scale for 10 years and similar anomaly will be created in E3 scale. Hence cascading is the only solution. Please oil your own machinery comrades. Our GS knows what to do and when to show the reaction.                             – CS Chennai TD

01-05-2017 AIBSNLEA Foundation day 14th Anniversary – MAY day


AIBSNLEA is celebrating its 14th Anniversary of Foundation Day on 1st May 2017. AIBSNLEA CHTD extends warm greetings to all the Members of AIBSNLEA CHTD and well wishers on the occasion.  AIBSNLEA was formally launched on 1st May, 2004 by merging of 10 DoT recognized Gr “B” Associations namely TESA (I), AFSOA, AIJTOA, AIPTCE (Gr.-‘B’), AIPTEE (Gr.-‘B’), AIJEA, AIPTAA, ABDRA, AITSA, BSNLEA. AIBSNLEA is in the true sense protecting the interest of BSNL Executives as well as of BSNL.

MAY DAY:  In the late nineteenth century, the working class was in constant struggle to gain the 8-hour work day. Working conditions were severe and it was quite common to work 10 to 16 hour days in unsafe conditions. Death and injury were commonplace at many work places.As early as the 1860’s, working people agitated to shorten the workday without a cut in pay, but it wasn’t until the late 1880’s that organized labor was able to garner enough strength to declare the 8-hour workday. At its national convention in Chicago, held in 1884, the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions (American Federation of Labor), proclaimed that “Eight hours shall constitute a legal day’s labor from and after May 1, 1886”. This proclamation was without consent of employers, yet demanded by many of the working class.

In a proclamation printed just before May 1, 1886, one publisher appealed to working people with this plea:

  • Workingmen to Arms!

  • War to the Palace, Peace to the Cottage, and Death to LUXURIOUS IDLENESS.

  • The wage system is the only cause of the World’s misery. It is supported by the rich classes, and to destroy it, they must be either made to work or DIE.

  • One pound of DYNAMITE is better than a bushel of BALLOTS!

  • MAKE YOUR DEMAND FOR EIGHT HOURS with weapons in your hands to meet the capitalistic bloodhounds, police, and militia in proper manner.

              On May 1, 1886, more than 300,000 workers in 13,000 businesses across the United States walked off their jobs in the first May Day celebration in history. Thousands were killed and wounded in the protests. On November 11, 1887 four leaders of the Mayday Agitation Albert Parsons, August Spies,George Engel, Adolph Fischer were hung to death. Louis Lingg killed himself and Samuel Fielden, Oscar Neebe, Michael Schwab were sent sent for imprisonment. They are the eight Martyrs of Mayday.

             The American Federation of Labor meeting in St Louis in December 1888, set 1 May 1890 as the day that American workers should work no more than eight hours. The International Workingmen’s Association meeting in Paris in 1889, endorsed the date for international demonstrations, thus starting the international tradition of May Day.
