One Day strike on 15.12.2016 against Tower Subsidiary formation:

Make extensive preparations at all levels for the successful conduction of the Strike. FNTO also joined the strike. Tower subsidiary formation will lead to disintegration of BSNL and disinvestment through backdoor.

As per the call of the Unions and Associations of BSNL, rallies are to be conducted throughout the country, at Circle and SSA levels on 14.12.2016 as part of mobilization for the Strike on 15.12.2016. CHQ requests all Circle and SSA Secretaries to effectively organise these rallies, in coordination with other Unions and Associations. 



 Congratulations!!!                                                              Congratulations!!!                                                                      Congratulations!!!

We profusely thank  executives across CTD for their support to make SNEA the Recognised Association in 1st MV for Executives in BSNL. We express our sincere gratitude to all executives for their forbearence  amidst attempt to derail and delay the process by way of court cases by some associations. Perhaps, we wouldn’t have witnessed and be a part of this significant event of Membership Verification for executives in BSNL after sixteen years of formation of BSNL— had not the management been keen and proactive to conclude the process by filing caveat in various CAT and High Courts. Our special thanks to CGM/CTD and GM/HR & Admin for their timely intervention to avoid  court stays. We honour the judgement of every individual and continue to seek your support and solidarity to turn BSNL into a commercially viable entity and protect the interest of executives. 


We Express our sincere gratitude to all executives across Calcutta Telephones District for casting their votes on 1st Membership Verification for executives in BSNL. All major issues are at advanced stage and the time assumes further significance since 3rd PRC is knocking at the door. It is time to strengthen BSNL and see a conclusive end to the justified and long pending issues affecting the executives. Wishing you all the best for a better future.

An appeal to the undecided Executives —–

In matters, it matters much more than you realize.


Every unpolled vote renders the cadre weak.

Every unpolled vote is for the Administration.

Every vote against the majority Association is for the Administration.

And every vote for a weak Association is a vote against the bargaining strength of the recognised Association.

Every vote against the Association that fights for the Oneness and Unity of the Executives is for the Administration.

Every Vote for the Association that cannot fight for the Executives is for the Administration.

Go along and vote the best.

Vote for Unity.

Vote for highest bargaining strength for the Executives.

Select the best, Elect the best.
