GS Notice to CMD/BSNL intimating Trade Union programms

DoT reference to DPE on replacement of E1A and E2A scale with E2 and E3 scales.

It explains the damages made by the stand taken by one Association to the cadre and the advantage taken out of that by DoT, quoting their stand. DoT cleverly utilized their demand to scuttle the genuine demand for E2 and E3 scales in the name of cascading effect.

It also exposes the allegation made by another Association against SNEA that BSNL offered E2 pay scales for the JTO/JAOs recruited by BSNL at the time of absorption in BSNL but SNEA compromised for E1A scale.

SNEA consistently telling our beloved comrades that at the time of absorption BSNL offered E1 and E2 pay scales for JTO/JAO and SDE/AO equivalent cadres and SNEA demanded E2 and E3 scales respectively. As a result of  very strong agitations in 2002 which paralysed the country, BSNL agreed for E1A and E2A scales.

Atleast now the truth has come out from the mouth of DoT itself.

Letter           Annexure
