Staff Side of the Joint Wage Negotiating Committee reviews the progress in wage revision on 25.09.2018:
A meeting of the Staff Side of the Joint Wage Negotiating Committee was on 25.09.2018, at NFTE’s office. …The meeting took stock of the progress of the ongoing wage negotiation. Especially, once again the pay scales proposed by the Management Side were scrutinized. No live case has come to the notice of the Staff Side, wherein stagnation is likely to arise. The meeting is also of the opinion that the agreement on the pay scales should be signed expeditiously, for onward submission for the approval of the DoT. Further, it is also decided that the negotiation on allowances and perks should be started immediately. It should be noted that the approval of the DoT is necessary only for the pay scales. So far as the perks and allowances are concerned, they need not go to the approval of the DoT, since the BSNL Board itself is empowered to approve them.
