      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.

17-04-2017 Due to untiring efforts of our AP Circle Association, request transfer orders of JTOs,  who have completed 3 years of service by 31-07-2017, were issued about 10 PM of 15-04-2017.  CS, ACS Hq and Acheswara Rao ACS, continuously pursued the transfer issues of JTOs and met the CGM at 3.30 PM of 15-04-2017 and explained about the request transfer issue of JTOs and the CGMT AP also convinced to release orders. 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.

     Union cabinet decided to implement standard pay scales in all CPSUs. DPE issued guidelines and clarification strictly directing all the CPSUs and Administrative Ministries on 26.11.2008, 02.04.2009 and 24.12.2012 to implement standard pay scales. DPE further directed BSNL and DoT on 09.07.2014 to implement standard pay scales only.

       BSNL recommended standard pay scales on 06.06.2016, 9 months back. Again BSNL gave a presentation to DoT on 10.02.2017 to approve E2 and E3 scales only without cascading effect, with the approval of MC as it will address DoT concern.

      Some negative forces in DoT are decided to demote the cadres to E1 and E2 scales or to extend on E1A and E2A instead of E2 and E3. DoT will be taking a decision on BSNL proposal based on the suggestion of the few negative officers in DoT shortly. 

    It is the time for all the BSNL Executives to mount pressure on DoT and BSNL Management to approve standard pay scales of E2 and E3 only. It is a do or die situation for BSNL Executives.

      Be United, come out and join the struggle from 16th March onwards for approving the standard pay scales of E2 and E3, for getting E2 scale instead of E1, for addressing the pay loss and for the recognition and status of the JTO/JAO/SDE/AO equivalent cadres.
