ONE MORE TACTICAL MOVE TO DIVERT ATTENTION OF EMPLOYEES !!!!
AUAB rejects the proposal of the Management for deferring the salary for the month of February 2019 and also the appeal of the Management to withdraw the strike : A meeting between the AUAB and the BSNL Management was held on 12.02.2019 at 17.30 hrs. Shri Anupam Shrivastava, CMD BSNL, Ms. Sujata T. Ray, Director (HR & Finance) and Shri A.M. Gupta, GM (SR), were present. From the AUAB, all participated.
CMD BSNL explained the serious financial crisis being faced by the BSNL and appealed for the cooperation of the AUAB for deferring payment of the salary for the month of February 2019. The AUAB representatives firmly rejected the request of the CMD BSNL. They told in one voice that payment of salary of the employees should not be deferred. Thereafter, the CMD BSNL said that the 3 day strike called on by the AUAB from 18.02.2019 will be self-defeating and appealed to call off the strike.
The representatives of the AUAB rejected the appeal of the CMD BSNL and reaffirmed that the strike will take place at any cost. They told the Management that the repeated assurances given by the the Hon’ble Minister of State for Communications are not implemented by the DoT. The AUAB also told the CMD BSNL that plenty of time has already been given to the DoT and that the strike will now take place.
Why the BSNL Management choose to place proposal of deferring wages only when the AUBA Representative met. A separate meeting with detailing the situation could have been explained earlier without waiting for the Employees to Meet the Management.
