Thousands of Executives, irrespective of Association affiliation supported the agitation. As per the report, lot of Non Executives and office bearers of Non Executive Unions also take CL in support of the agitation.
However office bearers at various levels to identify the SNEA member not joined this programme, if any.
The 72 Hours Day and Night Relay Hunger Strike from 10.00 Hrs of 25.04.2017 to 10.00 Hrs of 28.04.2017 become a big success due to the Unity among the Executives. Irrespective of membership, large number of Executives joined the Relay Hunger Strike under the banner of JF.

27-04-2017 Meeting in DoT: DoT invited Jt Forum for discussion on the charter of demands. In addition to Jt Forum leaders,CMD/BSNL,DIR(HR),PGM(Estt) and GM(SR) also present in the discussions.DoT represented by Addl Secretary(T),Jt Secretary(A) and other officers.
At the outset we told Addl Sec that DoT is destabilising BSNL by creating industrial unrest in the company. If that is the intention of DoT, it is better to dismantle BSNL Board, BSNL can be run by DoT and all the employees can be taken to DoT. Otherwise DoT should allow BSNL Board to run the company.
On pay scale issue, we categorically told DoT that JF rejects the PO approved by DoT and will not accept demotion of the cadres. The pay scales of E2 and E3 approved by BSNL has to be approved as it is. AS(T) and other officers justified their action. Again we told them that DoT don’t have any power to lower the scales unilaterally and as per the Union Cabinet decision, pay scales are to be decided by Administrative ministry on the recommendations of the Board only and administrative ministry does not have any power to devise its own proposal.
On pay scale issue CMD/BSNL made its stand very clear by telling DoT that BSNL want to get E2 and E3 pay scales approved replacing E1A and E2A and DOT decision has to be reconsidered.
Finally DoT told BSNL to send a formal letter to Secretary, DoT for reconsideration of the issue and the same will be examined.
On other HR issues pending in the Board like SDE RR, E1+5 increments, MT quota diversion for CAO promotion etc, AS(T) made a comment that Board approval is not required when all other decisions are taken by MC. Then we demanded to record it as minutes of the board instead of making a verbal statement, on which he was non committal.
Comrades, AS(T) will not change the stand by his own. It requires tremendous organizational pressure and the intervention of the Hon Minister. So further organizational pressure is to be mounted. Though pressure created so far is having its effect but more pressure is required to break the ice in DOT and resolve the burning HR issues.
By evening all our CSs and SSA Secretaries should ensure that 100% of our Executives have submitted their Leave applications for tomorrow. All Executives should remain on leave and they need not come to office.
26-04-2017 On second day of 72 hours Relay Hunger Strike more than 50 comrades including Lady comrades participated in Relay Hunger Strike very enthusiastically.

Kindly concentrate in this direction also.Please ensure 100% participation for mass casual leave on 28-04-2017.CHQ is also pressing in this direction.

Joint Forum of BSNL Executives’ Associations
Urgent attention of all CSs, SSA and Branch Secretaries … If joint meeting not held so far, convene Joint Forum meeting at Circle and SSA level urgently and form Core committees at Circle and SSA level to monitor the agitation programs. Start combined campaign at all the levels.
The status should be sent to CHQ by all Circle Secretaries on a daily basis.
The issues are very complex and through toughest struggle only we can have breakthrough. Almost 80% of the Executives (approx 40,000) are JTO/JAOs or SDE/AOs and the pay scale of these cadres lowered to E1 and E2. The pay scale of more than 40,000 Executives working as JTO/JAO, SDE/AO equivalent lowered to E1 and E2. Other HR issues like promotions, Superannuation benefits, first TB promotions, pay parity, E1A and E2A for Civil/Elect/Arch/TF/PA/ PS etc, scrapping of DGM and MT RRs etc are the need of the hour and a very tough struggle is needed ahead. If we think that the issues will be resolved sitting in the comfort of the offices, then we are simply befooling ourselves. Each one of us shall have to be part of this program with 100% commitment and without any apprehensions in mind. Those trying to enjoy sitting on fences and trying to weaken the struggle should be reprimanded by each and every Executive and such persons should be shown their true worth. Toughest agitational programmes are announced in a short notice. The participation, involvement and the impact of this struggle will decide our destiny. So make all out preparations to face any challenge.
72 hours relay hunger strike (day and night) from 25th to 27th will be the first programme. List of Executives participating the Hunger strike may be prepared in advance. All the office bearers should apply leave for four days immediately and all the executives should ensure hundred percent participation.
28.04.2017 is the day of Mass Casual Leave by all the Executives. It requires massive campaign. Make sure that 100% joint forum members and other supporters also are submitting CL applications for 28.04.2017. We should ensure that each and every Executive who cares for the issues should apply leave.
From 01st May onwards, agitation programmes will be intensified. Indefinite Relay Hunger Strike and Work According to Rule will be starting from 01.05.2017.
Join the programs enmasse and make the programs a big success.
Success of this struggle will lead to resolution of the issues. It is going to decide our future. It is going to decide the implementation of Pay, Promotion and Pensionary Benefits for all the BSNL Executives for ever.

As the CGM was busy with the official meetings with the CFA and CM wings, up to 8PM, the Circle Administration wants to issue the orders on 17-04-2017. But on our insistence finally they issued transfer orders at 10 PM. As there are no vacancies in Circle office for JTOs, the request transfers to Circle Office were not considered.

Same thing has brought to the notice of the CGMT of AP Circle and inturn CGM agreed to consider all the request transfers who are about complete three years of service by 31/07/2017.As per our request 47 pending request transfers of JTOs are displayed in the AP Intranet. Another six requests are not reached AP Circle Office through proper channel. We requested AP Circle administration to include these names also while considering request transfers.

Comrades you are all aware that, Sri P. Vijaya Kumar JTO trainee at Rajpura expired on 20-03-2017 due to ill health.
