Talks failed – AUAB decides to go ahead with the strike : CMD BSNL and Director HR met the AUAB leaders today. AUAB representatives told the Management that they are prepared to accept 3rd Pay Revision with 5 % fitment, as offered earlier by the DoT. However, they demanded that this commitment should be given in writing by the DoT, so that the AUAB can consider deferment of the strike. Even this demand of the AUAB was not accepted. Further, the DoT has also diluted its earlier assurance to give DA neutralisation. The DoT is demanding that the AUAB should call off the strike, in view of the terror attack in Pulwama. The Secretary, Telecom, has put a condition that she would not meet the AUAB leaders unless they call off the strike. Immediately after the meeting with the BSNL Management, all the General Secretaries of the AUAB met and decided to go ahead with the strike. In the backdrop of the terror attack, AUAB has also decided to exempt J&K circle from the strike to ensure maintenance of services. AUAB requests all the circle and district unions to organise the strike powerfully.

AUAB representatives in the Committee for Periodic Interaction, Com.P.Abhimanyu, Convenor, AUAB, Com.Chandeshwar Singh, Chairman, AUAB, Com.K.Sebastin, GS, SNEA and Com.Prahlad Rai, GS, AIBSNLEA, participated.

Ray, Director (HR) and Shri A.M.Gupta, GM (SR) represented BSNL.

Detailed discussion took place on the 3rd Pay Revision, 4G spectrum, Payment of Pension Contribution on actual basic pay and Pension Revision issues. As regards the 3rd Pay Revision the DOT side offered Pay Revision with 5% fitment. If the AUAB accepted that then this issue would be placed for the approval of the Digital Commission (erstwhile Telecom Commission) meeting to be held on 05.02.2019 and that thereafter it would be taken for the approval of the Cabinet.

The AUAB stated that 5% fitment is very low and that they could not accept it. Thereafter, the Additional Secretary, (Telecom) suggested that the AUAB representatives could discuss the issue with the CMD BSNL and could come back to him within a day or two. It may be recollected that in the last meeting held with the Additional Secretary, (Telecom), 3rd Pay Revision with 0% fitment was offered by the DoT side.

On Pension revision, DOT suggested for the same fitment which AUAB outrightly rejected. AUAB told that Pensioners are not linked with affordability of BSNL as the Pension is paid by the Government. Thereafter, AST suggested for separate discussion with DDG (Estt) on the issue of revison of Pension. After the meeting with AST, AUAB had elaborate discussion with DDG (Estt) on pension revision formula of post 1.1.2017 Pensioners and has decided to submit the formula for pension revision of post 01.01.2017 Pensioners, shortly. On Pension Contribution, DOT is trying to send the recommendation to Dept of Expenditure by next week. 4G spectrum allotment and vacant land monetization is coming in the Digital Commission meeting on 05.02.2019 and thereafter to the Cabinet.
