CHQ News:

Meeting with Sri A. N. Rai, DIR(HR), BSNL on 13.03.2015: GS and President met Sri A. N. Rai and discussed the following issues:

a) Switching over to Time bound Functional promotion from the existing seniority based promotions: Now promotions in various cadres held up due to litigations especially in Engg wing. Thousands of SDE, DE and DGM posts are vacant. JTO eligibility list is under challenge since 2009. All the SDE seniority lists (1 to 7) are quashed by the Hon Supreme Court. Promotions in various wings of the same company varies years together. JAO to AO promotion happening in 4 years whereas JTO(T) to SDE(T) promotion is not happening even after 20 years, JTO (C/E) to SDE(C/E) promotion is after 22 to 23 years etc. The uniform promotion policy for all the cadres in various wings is to be implemented as assured at the time of promotion.  Only solution is to switch over to TB functional promotion. The consultant also proposed the same. DIR(HR) assured that serious discussions in this regard can be held in the month of April.

b) Finalization of  pay scales of JTO/JAO and SDE/AO cadres by E2, E3 scales from 01.01.2007: Assn pointed out that even after repeated assurances by the Management and rejection of the proposal by the DPE and DoT, no action is taken by the management so far to finalise the pay scales. The basic cadres are facing the threat of demotion which cannot be accepted at all. DIR(HR) is of the firm view that management is not in a position to consider this proposal due to financial constraints and even suggested that the future recruitment can be in E1 scale.

c) 30% superannuation benefit to BSNL recruited employees: Assn requested to resolve this issue as it is pending since pay revision. DIR(HR) informed that considering the financial condition of the company, 2% to 3% is under consideration of the Management at present which will be reviewed later. Assn requested to reconsider this and work out a mutually agreeable solution for all the stake holders with considerable hike in the percentage.

c) Transfer from soft tenure areas: Assn requested to clear the confusion on transfer from soft tenure areas on long stay and promotion: The treatment on tenure and soft tenure stations should be uniform for all the purposes to avoid confusion. DIR(HR) agreed to our suggestions and told that uniform policy will be followed for tenure and soft tenure areas on transfer on long stay and promotion.

Comrades, the developments on pay scales, TB functional promotion and 30% superannuation benefits are not at all encouraging. On the other hand Management is not able to promote the executives to the vacant SDE, DE and DGM posts, simply citing court cases. This all compel us to re-launch the trade union actions we deferred in March, 2014 after repeated assurances. Make preparations accordingly.

Meeting with Sri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD, BSNL on 16.03.2015: GS, President and both AGSs met Sri Anupam Shrivastava and discussed the following issues:

a) Switching over to Time bound Functional promotion from the existing seniority based promotions: Assn explained the litigations going on seniority related issues which blocked the promotions in almost all the cadres. The litigations may continue in the future also. Only solution is to switch over to TB functional promotion. The consultant also proposed the same.

b) Implementation of standard pay scales of E2, E3 from 01.01.2007: Even after repeated assurances by the Management and rejection of the proposal by the DPE and DoT, no action is taken by the management so far. The basic cadres are facing the threat of demotion which cannot be accepted at all.

After discussion CMD, suggested to have further discussion with DIR(HR) on these issues and will have discussions after that.

147 Seniority case:
147 seniority case: Hon SC directed to complete the services in 4 weeks time. Service is incomplete in one SLP filed recently. The case will be listed after completion of service.

CP,VP and CS met Sr.GM(HR&A) on 13.03.2015 and discussed the following:
1. Time Bound Promotion:
We have informed to Sr.GM(HR&A) that a lot of TBP orders for E1A to E2A, E2A to E3, E3 to E4 and E4 to E5 are pending. Sr.GM(HR&A) informed that DPC for E4 to E5 is already over and the orders would be issued soon. Remaining TBP pending cases the basic informations are being collected from field units and assured us that they will expedite the process.
2. Confirmation in the grade of JTO:
We have informed that the confirmation in the grade of JTOs are pending for many years. Sr.GM(HR&A) responded immediately the work is under progress.
3. Rule-8 transfer of JTOs:
We have requested to clear all the cases of Rule-8 transfers, since only a less number of JTOs have applied for it.  Sr.GM(HR&A) assured us to look into it.
4. Looking After arrangement:
We have expressed our displeasure on this issue of delaying the LA in SDE and DE grades. Sr.GM(HR&A) informed us that the DPC for JTO to SDE LA is pending for want of informations from field units. With regard to DE LA, Sr.GM(HR&A) informed that orders for those in the undisputed list 5 would be issued in a week or so, by reverting those already promoted from lists 6 & 7. We immediately intervened and informed that since there is no instructions from BSNL CO w.r.t lists 6 & 7, in the aftermath of Honble Supreme Courts directives, the existing lists are valid and no one need to be reverted in guise of dispute. We have elaborately discussed on this issue and finally Sr.GM(HR&A) agreed to issue the DE LA. Hope the orders would be released by this week end.

Meeting with Director(HR)-CHQ President and both AGSs met Director(HR) to discuss following issues:
A) Immediate restoration of trade union facilities suspended consequent to initiation of flawed, objective less, mock and ridiculous membership verification process: We clearly conveyed to Director(HR) that it is completely unfair and arbitrary on the part of Management to keep trade union facilities in frozen condition since notification of membership verification process which is stayed by Karnataka HC for the last more than six months. Besides, this Association is completely and strongly opposed to going ahead with membership verification unless basic and pertinent issues raised by this Association and whose resolution alone will help achieve basic objective of membership verification process are comprehensively addressed, we informed Director(HR).
We urged upon Director(HR) to initiate immediate action towards restoration of trade union facilities enjoyed by this Association prior to commencement of membership verification since day to day functioning of the Association stands adversely impacted on frivolous, flimsy and non- existent grounds. Director (HR) assured of very quick action to restore the facilities as early as possible and also assured that he will direct Sr GM (SR) to initiate appropriate action in this regard.  
B)    Monitoring of progress of DPC: We sought personal intervention of Director (HR) to monitor progress of ongoing seniority cum fitness DPC from JTO to TES Gr B and informed him that the progress of DPC is not as quick and on expected lines. We also informed Director (HR) that his personal intervention in closely monitoring progress of DPC has become absolutely necessary in view of slow pace of DPC work. Director (HR) assured that he will monitor progress of DPC personally besides directing concerned officers to expedite DPC as much as possible. Subsequently, we have had discussion with DGM (P) regarding accelerating the pace of DPC work and he assured that necessary action is already being taken to complete the work as quickly as possible.
Meeting with Sr GM(SR) We apprised Sr GM(SR) about the discussions that we have had with Director(HR) regarding restoration of trade union facilities and also pleaded with him to initiate quick action to ensure that facilities that have been suspended arbitrarily are restored at the earliest since there is absolutely no justification whatsoever in continuing with suspension of these facilities. Sr GM(SR) categorically assured that immediate action within a couple of days would be initiated to restore the facilities as quickly as possible.
