CP,CS and ACS Com.P.Charles met GM(HR&Admn) on 05.01.2017 and discussed the following issues:
1. Publication of All India long stay list of AGMs/SDEs:
The Chennai Telephones circle,STR,STP circles prepares the long stay list in the cadre of AGMs/SDEs and the same is sent to TN circle for consolidation and a final list is prepared by the Tamil Nadu circle including its own AGMs/SDEs.

3. Redeployment and Rotational transfers:
We informed to GM(HR&A) that the working strength of SDEs/JTOs are less than that of sanctioned strength. Redeployment and Rotational Transfers are the need of the hour so that the work load can be shared equally to the possible extent and the Executives will have an opportunity / Exposure to work in all the fields.
GM(HR&A) agreed to discuss in detail as an agenda item..
4. Clearance of Pending request transfers of JTOs from Chengelpet to Chennai:
We thanked GM(HR&A) for issuance of long pending request transfers of JTOs and we further informed that 4 JTOs request transfer is pending from Chengelpet to Chennai. GM(HR&A) informed that we tried to bring all the 13 JTOs but we could clear only 9 waiting list and assured that the remaining 4 JTOs will be brought in the next batch. As there is some dispute in maintaining the waiting list of JTOs, we have informed to GM(HR&A), the issues should be addressed so that next time the same may not repeat. GM(HR&A) assured to look into it.
5. Pending NEPPs for JTOs:
Recently 54 JEs have become JTOs and they are on field training in various units. Since their NEPP is pending in JE cadre, we have requested GM(HR&A) to issue necessary instructions so that
the NEPP fixation be completed first, prior to their JTO pay fixation.
GM(HR&A) agreed to issue necessary instructions.

Com.G.L.Jogi dwelt mainly on viability of BSNL,Standard pay scales of E2 & E3, Pay anomalies of Post 2007 JTOs/JAOs, Promotions and CPSU cadre Hierarchy. While concluding he impressed upon that struggles alone would solve the issues of viability of BSNL and other cadre issues; website postings or dialogues would solve nothing.
Chairman 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.

Editorial

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 Association.

Our so 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 Association”.

The run 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.

The very 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.

The greatest 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.

Majority 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.

We have 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 underlying fact.

Standard 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.

Next 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.

SNEA,Chennai Telephones wishes Happy and Prosperous New Year to All.
