Positive developments on CPSU Cadre Hierarchy:

The meetings with CMD and DIR(HR) on CPSU Hierarchy yesterday (15.03.2017)had very positive outcome. After discussion and on our continuous persuasion, it was agreed that CPSU Hierarchy implementation will be delinked from HR Plan finalization. The CPSU Hierarchy finalization was delayed as it is linked with finalization of HR Plan. Further DIR(HR) agreed that the presentation on the proposal will be done next week itself and she will dedicate one day exclusive for that.

HR Plan finalization will have huge implications if CPSU Hierarchy is not implemented by that time. In HR plan, number of posts will be drastically reduced considering the huge closure in land line connections. The present post sanction is based on 2004 working connections. For example, the number of SDE posts will come down from 25,000 to 18,000 as per HR plan. In that case 7,000 SDE vacancies will be reduced and resultant total SDE vacancies will be around 4000, putting a big question mark on SDE promotion itself. Same situation will be there in other wings also. So, CPSU Hierarchy has to be implemented at any cost immediately. Otherwise, the day HR Plan approved by BSNL Board, all vacancies in all the cadres will be drastically reduced making post based promotions a nightmare.

This is another reason, which others may not be understood, why SNEA is giving highest priority to CPSU Hierarchy. HR plan finalization is equally important as all other HR issues approval in the Board is depending on it.

GS, President and Jt Sec met PGM(Estt) on 15.03.2017 and held discussions on the following subjects:

a) Progress in the Committee meeting on pay parity issue of Rs 22820 for post 2007 recruited JTO/JAOs: As informed by the Chairman of the Committee earlier, PGM(Estt) also informed that in the first meeting of the committee, it was decided to wait for the outcome of the BSNL proposal for E2 and E3 scales. The committee given an interim report in this regard. The anomaly can be assessed after the finalization of the pay scales, now only provisional pay scales are given. After E2, E3 approval, committee will meet and submit the final report.

b) Committee meeting on Terms Insurance for the BSNL directly recruited employees, replacing GSLIS: We requested to convene the meeting at the earliest to work out the modalities. We explained the issue, Superannuation benefits will be eligible only after 15 years and the advantage in going for Term Insurance as the premium will be very less. It will be a voluntary scheme. PGM(Estt) assured to convene the meeting at the earliest.

It has been decided that the Two days Relay Hunger strike on 16th and 17th March, 2017 will not be held for now. However there will not be any change in the TU programmes from 11.04.2017 onwards. Since regular Secretary DoT has not joined so far, decision on E1A and E2A pay scales may take some time.  DIR(HR) tried to arrange a meeting with Secretary for the last one week but could not materialize as regular Secretary not available. CMD also tried to discuss the issue with Secretary and resolve it. Yesterday DIR(HR) written a DO letter also to AS(T) citing the Trade Union Notice of the recognized Executive Association in BSNL and requested DoT for early approval of the proposal by BSNL for revision on E1A and E2A scales.

Today DIR(HR) invited SNEA for discussion and explained the developments and appealed not to go for agitation till regular Secretary joins in DoT.

Morning we had discussion with CMD also. Both assured us to use their good office to settle the issue as soon as new Secretary joins.

DoT Approval for standard pay scales of E2 and E3 replacing the intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A w.e.f 01.01.2007 for JTO/JAOs and SDE/AOs as per 2nd PRC.

 

Two days Hunger strike on 16th and 17th March, 2017

The relay hunger strike on 16.03.2017 will be held at O/o CGM, Tamil Nadu Circle, Greams Road,Chennai-6 and on 17.03.2017 at O/o CGM,Chennai Telephones. All the office bearers are requested to mobilize and ensure maximum participation at both the places.

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.
