Make door to door campaign for the success of the strike with 100% participation. 

As per the decision of All Unions & Associations of BSNL (AUAB), belonging to CTD and WB, the strike on 12/12/2017 & 13/12/2017, in protest against denial of benefits of 3rd PRC and formation of Tower Subsidiary Company shall be observed by assembling at the gates, outside of respective offices from 10 am. All office bearers, activists and others must be at the gates as an exemplary show of solidarity and support and also to meet emergent situations, if so arises. Cutting across all ideological affiliation, AUAB calls upon all to be a part of this historic struggle in defeating the evil plan of denial and deprivation by the authority. Its time to claim our legitimate demands. If not now, perhaps, it will happen never. There is no room for complacency but to act and achieve.

Human Chain organised by All Unions and Associations of BSNL/WBTC & CTD around Telephone Bhavan and CTO building on 23/11/2017 at 14-00 hrs.  All participants stood hand in hand chanting slogans in protest against denial of 3rd PRC alongwith pending issues of 2nd PRC and formation of subsidiary tower company. A huge crowd consisting of executives and non executives thronged the venue.


All unions and associations of BSNL/WB/CTD chapter held its notified Convention on 22/11/2017 at TI Hall/CTO Building. CHQ office bearers and Circle representatives of unions and associations unanimously condemned the govt’s policies  for formation of subsidiary tower company out of BSNL and denying the benefits of 3rd PRC to BSNL alongwith substantial number of CPSEs attributing it to profitability clause. While the govt officers  on deputation are drawing full benefits as notified by 7th CPC from the exchequer of BSNL, the executives and employees are left bleeding without justice. Its an utter discrimination amongst government entities with scant regard to tenets of equality. The intent to include profitability clause is a masked attempt to deny benefits to large number of CPSEs. Its an irony of fate to see govt constituting committees for pay revisions and framing restricting clauses on one hand while washing off the responsibility to bear additional financial burden on the other side. If CPSEs are to meet their respective resources then what congruence it has to deny on the ground of profitability?  Moreover, the concealed attempt by the government to carve out subsidiary tower company from BSNL is surely going to spell doom to BSNL. Taking away the tower company would mean, losing out a substantial portion of revenue and with imminent danger of disinvestment or strategic sale in not so long run. The employees of BSNL is competent to run the company efficiently provided there is no interference from outside. The board should function independent of inervention while framing policies or executing the same. 

Convenor of the house gave a clarion call  to participate in Human Chain formation around Telephone Bhavan and CTO Building tomorrow i.e on 23/11/2017 at 01-30 pm.

SNEA/CTC was represented by Com Sankar Sanyal Jt Secretary(E) and Com Dilip Saha CS
