CONDUCT LUNCH HOUR DEMONSTRATION ON 26-07-2017 AND WEAR BLACK BADGES WHILE ON DUTY ON 27-07-2017.
As you are well aware of the fact that, the National Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations has taken initiative for settling the issue of 3rd PRC by holding its 1st meeting on 24th May 2017 and calling their members to hold the lunch hour demonstration all over Nation on 14th June 2017 and relay hunger fast on 3rd and 4th July 2017. Simultaneously we have written series of letters to PMO, Secretary DOT and DPE including Minister of heavy industries.
At the same time BSNL management including CMD himself met Minister of IT and Communication to secure 3rd PRC for their work force.
Now based on Cabinet approval the DPE notification has to be seen that whether the Administrative Ministry/Board of the PSUs have been empowered by the Cabinet to allow dispension of the “Affordability Clause” of 3rd PRC report. In case Board/Administrative Ministry is empowered then BSNL Board and DOT Administration should implement the 3rd PRC in BSNL in the interest of its Viability otherwise, we have to fight organisationally. National Forum of BSNL unions/associations are committed for 3rd PRC implementation and in case the BSNL Board/DOT Administration do not implement it, in that case national forum of BSNL unions and association will never hesitate to go on indefinite Strike as decided in 4th July 2017 meeting.
After taking the stock of the situation an emergent meeting of National Forum of BSNL unions/association met today in Delhi under the Chairmanship of Com. V. Subburaman G.S. TEPU and decided to hold Lunch Hour Demonstration on 26-07-2017 at all levels for securing 3rd PRC to BSNL employees. And also decided to wear the black badges, while on duty on 27-07-2017 to extend moral support and focus our demand. – C. Singh, Convener National Forum of BSNL Unions/associations.
