issues of viability of BSNL and other cadre issues; website postings or
dialogues would solve nothing.
Com.G.L.Jogi addressed the 8th All India Conference of BSNLEU being
held at Chennai on 31.12.2016. Com Jogi was very categorical in his address that the
Unions/Associations would not allow to form any kind of subsidiary
companies, which would lead to disintegrate BSNL. He appealed all those
present in Conference Hall that preparations must be made for an
indefinite strike if the proposals to form a separate Tower Company is
not rolled back.
Exhibiting extraordinary solidarity, Kudos to all the
activists at grass root level for the success of the first Membership Verification.
Post membership verification throws new challenges and chains us to fulfill the
mandate given to and trust reposed in us as Recognized Representative
called immediate competitor, AIBSNLEA, frantically tried its level best to
marginalize us in the first historic membership verification by desperately
reaching out to other participating Associations to forge an alliance with every
tom, dick and harry. Its act of desperation was so conspicuous that, like a
magician, it assured everyone, who came its way that everything on this earth
would be resolved and that no issue would be left unresolved. Even after being supported wholeheartedly
and adequately by other two Associations, having quite sizeable numbers, it was
a proud moment for SNEA to singlehandedly emerge victorious and thus accomplish
unique feat and recognition of being reckoned as “Majority Recognized
up to the first ever historic membership verification of Executives in CPSUs
was truly challenging, stimulating and absorbing, with activists at all the
rungs of the Organization, right from CHQ, Circle and SSA down up to the grass
root level having got involved in the challenge in the most determined and
wholehearted manner, putting in everything at their disposal to defeat the
challenge thrown up by alliance of three Associations. The challenge for all of
us became all the more daunting in view of waves of mal propaganda, and what
not, unleashed by our rivals, even going to the extent of releasing fictitious and
fabricated audio/video clippings, to tarnish our image and project us as a demon
and greatest negative force vis-à-vis JTOs recruited by BSNL, completely
brushing aside the herculean efforts put in by this Association to safeguard and
promote legitimate interests of this potential segment in BSNL.
fact that mandate of the Executives and the trust reposed by them in us alone
enabled us to earn this Majority Recognized Association status puts enormous
and unthinkable responsibility on our shoulders in terms of fully living up to
the trust reposed by them and carrying forward their mandate. Our task becomes
doubly challenging and terribly arduous in view of the fact that no stone will
be left unturned by our rivals in the days to come to defeat our struggles by
distracting the focus of our comrades through vicious mal propaganda. This mal
propaganda is surely going to get intensified and all out attempts would be
made to derail our future struggles to get our long awaited and legitimate HR
issues resolved. And struggles to get our issues addressed are going to be
inevitable and unquestionably prolonged.
and the most formidable challenge before us is to ensure that upward growth
trajectory momentum of the company is further accelerated so that we are placed
in a very sound financial position to qualify to get the best recommendations
of 3rd PRC implemented. While ensuring positive growth momentum of
the Company gets intensified in the days to come, we have to also, in the
process, defeat all the attacks from the policy makers and the vested interests
to destabilize and weaken our beloved Company. Thus, on the one side, while our
single minded focus has to be on accelerated growth of the Company, on the
other we have to remain ever vigilant and on our toes to come down heavily and
defeat all those policies of the Govt. that threaten to destabilize us.
Recognition Status puts incredibly enormous responsibility on us in terms of
getting plethora of critical HR issues resolved as quickly as possible. We are
bound to address the legitimate issues of all segments and, for us, there has
never been in the past nor will in future, be any kind of discrimination
whatsoever between those absorbed from DOT and recruited by BSNL. This
discrimination is unwarranted and counterproductive. Let all of us come
together in erasing the dividing line between the two and isolating those
forces who promote this distinction. We have to build cohesiveness of a kind
that remains unshakeable under all situations and challenges.
to win the hearts of the people who are not with us through intensive
persuasion and get them into our fold. Verification is the first step we have
initiated to get the HR issues resolved. Our profound commitment to the
Executives is that SNEA will tirelessly struggle for continuous career growth
of all segments. Challenges are undoubtedly and unarguably innumerable and
really daunting, needing prolonged bouts
of tough and committed struggle, and all of us have to understand this
pay scales of E2, E3 before 3rd PRC, CPSU cadre Hierarchy up to AGM
equivalent grade to end the stalemate in Functional promotions, 30%
Superannuation benefits with Term Insurance/Corpus Fund as Social security, implementation
of 3rd PRC and up gradation of remaining scales up to E7, addressing
the issue of huge pay disparity of post 2007, first TBP after 4 to 5 years, E1A
and E2A scales notionally from 01.10.2000 for Civil/Elect/PA/PS/Arch/TF cadres,
JTO to SDE promotion under seniority and LDCE quota, SDE to DE/EE and DE to DGM
promotions, JAO to AO and AO to CAO promotions, Rule 8 cases etc. are the
immediate challenges and issues to be settled.
three years are just going to be decisive and crucial in scripting the story of
growth of the Company and our career growth. New Year starts with all these
challenges, hopes and aspirations. We have already commenced started our post
verification activities in the right direction, starting with the crucial issue
of replacement of intermediary pay scales of E1A and E2A with standard pay
scales of E2 and E3 w.e.f 01.01.2007, getting the issue of huge pay disparity
of post 2007 resolved as quickly as possible and implementation of CPSU Cadre
Hierarchy to end the deadly deadlock in functional promotions. We have a long
long way to go, and with unwavering and unqualified support from all segments of
Executives, we are quite confident of taking this company to new heights of
glory and also fulfill the mandate given by and the trust and confidence
reposed in us by the Executives to meet their aspirations of career growth.
