29-07-2022 : Meeting with CMD:- The NFTE (BSNL) attended the meeting called by CMD in connection with Cabinet decision for revival of the BSNL. Almost all unions attended. The CMD in hour long speech gave details of revival package. The NFTE (BSNL) while thanking the efforts of BSNL Board for the efforts stated workers are agitated as more than 11,000 employees are stagnating for last six years and promotions are blocked. Management must bestow attention to alleviate the sufferings of workers. The door of negotiation should open for dialogue with AIGETOA who are agitating for last four days. The unions was represented by its President, General Secretary and Dy. General Secretary.
Democratic rights of the unions and associations in BSNL are being crushed by Shri P.K. Purwar, CMD BSNL. Even peaceful agitational programmes, like dharna and hunger strike are not being allowed in BSNL and pay cut is being imposed on those who participate in these programmes. The Hon’ble Supreme Court has held on various occasions that, participating in peaceful agitations is the fundamental right of every citizen of this country. In the talks held between the CMD BSNL and the AUAB, in October, 2021, it was assured that, the BSNL Management would review it’s stand. However, no change has come in the attitude of the CMD BSNL. He wants to convert the unions and associations as his slaves. Protesting this attitude of Shri P.K. Purwar, CMD BSNL, BSNLEU is boycotting the all union / association meeting, called on today, to be addressed by him.
