From the day one, many of us are confused a little bit about, what an union is for, What are all the activities an Union will do. At last what is the benefit for us in regard of the unions? There are hell lot of questions in our mind to juggle with. Finally here you found some of the answer for your questions and why BSNL employees going to strike in this April 2015 and what all the reasons.Unions are the group of employees which stands for employee, sometimes guides the management by raising concerns of the polices, further more unions holds moral responsibility for taking a stand for the company, its employees and the society where it is living.
With the same spirit BSNL Forum (All Unions and Associations of both Executive and Non-Executive) had given a call with demands to make BSNL a profit making company. BSNL Forum of all unions and Associations came to a common platform to suggest or even demand Indian Government to re-think on its initiatives taken against BSNL.BSNL Forum agenda of the strike is quite striking. The agenda is speaking lot about BSNL Revival. BSNL Forum is keen on BSNL’s lacunas and weakness and agenda also speaks about how to correct them and also how to change the loss making business models and concern of the merger strategies and finally entire forum wants BSNL to be a profit making company.
These are some of the few points in agenda of BSNL Employees Strike (Demands)
Upgrade of the equipment to offer the best services to users and also for adopting new technologies like 4G.
As BSNL is providing rural telephone services at loss. This has to be compensated.
Financial assistance should be given to BSNL for its expansion.
BSNL New Recruitment in various cadres has to be carried out.
Being of a PSU , BSNL should not be charged for spectrum allocation charges. As BSNL is serving for the society with a concern rather for profits.
All central and state PSU’s should use BSNL service only. Spectrum charges Rs.6700 Crore should be refunded immediately.
Merging of Sick companies with BSNL has to be refrained. As BSNL is logging losses for the past five years, if BSNL is merged with loss making companies, BSNL may also be listed as Sick PSU. If any PSU is declared as sick PSU, there will be no wage revision, There may be disinvestment also.
TRAI recommendation for surrendering of 1.2MHz spectrum, should be rejected.Assets has to be transferred to BSNL. Director’s posts has to be filled up.
Reject of Deloitte committees anti-worker and anti-BSNL recommendations.
Grant of 78.2%, Pension revision for BSNL Retirees. 30% superannuation benefit for BSNL direct recruitees.
If you see these points BSNL forum rather expressing their grievances, here they are trying to align the BSNL management ideas towards bringing BSNL to profits. This the what all forms of unions and associations has to do.This really appreciating effort by BSNL forum. To make these points propagate to Dot, Ministry of Communications and IT, BSNL is going for strike for two days i.e. 21st and 22nd of April 2015. For the same a huge number of BSNL employees marched to parliament and even staged a dharna for three days, to make their point clear to even PMO.This strike is more or less Do or Die type of situation. So, if you love BSNL, support for this initiative(BSNL Employees Strike) to make our BSNL a profit making company and also do expect a better quality of Service from BSNL.
