He further mentioned that the recommendation of the Committee will be submitted within a couple of days. GS requested the Director (HR) for the early issuance of the favourable orders in this regard to mitigate the sufferings and frustration of the Young and Dynamic SDEs who have put more than 10 years Service in the SDE Cadre. Director (HR) appreciated the concern of AIBSNLEA and assured to look in to the matter.

 

Earlier, as requested by AIBSNLEA, Committee was formed to look in to the issues regarding Reversion of 2007- LDCE SDEs (2001 DR batch). AIBSNLEA submitted its views before the Committee Members during the month of June, 2020 as per the Directions of the Director (HR). The Committee required reports from all the Circles. The same was received by the Pers. Branch. Several rounds of meeting of the Committee was conducted for the past 4 months and it is reliably learnt recommendation of the Committee is  positive and the decision will be taken after the approval of the Competent Authority shortly.

B) Status of JAO 1999 Batch Pay fixation and recovery issue in respect of Telungana and AP Circles:- Director (HR) mentioned that the issue was discussed in detail with the HR Team with reference to the compliance report received from the CGMT Telungana and on the back ground of existing BSNL CO orders and Policy decision in this regard and decided to consider the case as one time relaxation. He further assured that the clarification orders will be issued shortly. GS, AIBSNLEA conveyed sincere thanks to the Director (HR) and the whole  HR  Team for the settlement of the issue.

History of the Case: AIBSNLEA Requested  BSNL Management  for the Withdrawal of the letter issued on the  presumption of Telangana  Circle regarding  the wrong  Pay fixation done against first up-gradation under Executive Promotion Policy (EPP) for the JAOs of 1999 Batch by DGM Vigilance of CGMT, TS Circle from 17.3.2020 onwards. In this regard GS, AIBSNLEA has written a letter to the Management on 17.3.2020 followed by 3 Reminders. AIBSNLEA CHQ Office bearers discussed the issue with  Dir(HR), DIR(Fin), PGM(Pers), Sr.GM(Estt),  GM(EF) and DGM (Pers) in detail several times with relevant orders/clarifications issued by the DoT, Pers & SEA Branch of BSNL CO, but even after a lapse of five months, due to Covid-19 etc., the issue has not been resolved.

2nd MV in some Association's sites

Dear Friends!

It is very surprising to note that so many claimers are there for the recently released outstanding SAB payments from Sept, 2019 to Jan, 2020 and it is very ridiculous to see that mud sliding and Website war is going on even after the completion of the 2nd MV in some Association's sites, which is not a healthy trend for the interest and Welfare of the BSNL Executives and BSNL. We, on behalf of AIBSNLEA wish to inform you all that AIBSNLEA is the only Association taken up the issue with the BSNL Management continuously, by writing letters and persuasion with CMD BSNL, Director (Finance), Director (HR) & Sr.GM (CBB) Corporate Office from time to time and due to consistent and dedicated efforts of AIBSNLEA, the outstanding SAB benefits has been finally released. Please go-through the AIBSNLEA CHQ website for the letters written and issues taken up with the BSNL Management in this regards.

AN APPEAL BY AIBSNLEA

Dear Friends!

August 18th 2020, is the most crucial day for BSNL Executives’ career because this day decides who will represent the Executives of BSNL before Management, this day decides who will negotiate with the Management on behalf of all Executives, this day will decide who can take care of BSNL future/ Survival in view of the present Financial crunch of BSNL/Covid-19...etc., etc.... So friends, time/ opportunity to take crucial decisions will not come again and again....... So everybody must vote on 18th August 2020 without fail as the Vote is the most powerful weapon in Democracy...... So now you are going to vote ... To whom you are to vote? Please vote for AIBSNLEA at Sl. No. 1, why?

AIBSNLEA has always proved itself as an actuator in all drives of the legitimate demands of BSNL Executives.

AIBSNLEA believes in the ground work and not in the mere pump and show on bandwagons. Fight can’t be win by standing on bandwagons, we believes that it is only the ground work with full of sweat and blood flow which brings outcomes.

Fights can’t be won by mischievous/malicious/fake propaganda on WhatsApp etc., without doing any ground work. AIBSNLEA always believes that actions speak louder than the words.

AIBSNLEA believes that there is never just one thing that leads to success for anyone, feel it always a combination of passion, dedication, hard work, and being in the right place at the right time and AIBSNLEA success is known to everyone.

Despite the several negative forces running every nuke and corner to derail the resolution of issues and doing all sort of propaganda to just achieve their sinister motives, AIBSNLEA strongly believes that the “Actual fighting/action at Ground level” is the only solution to this leg pulling approach by some overzealous/vested interest mongers/groups.

The roots of AIBSNLEA are nourished by the water of different rivers like Associations of all the Streams. This is the real strength of AIBSNLEA and it has no need to be proved before anyone.

Nobody can steal its sunshine glory because nobody can steal the aroma of flower. Now, this is the time to make the glory of AIBSNLEA more shining, make the power of

AIBSNLEA more intensified and time to say a big ‘NO’ to further Machiavellian moves of our opponents.

Every Executive should come forward to join Hands with AIBSNLEA for safe future of BSNL & its Executives as well.

SANKALP PATHRA OF SNEA - “The CAT is out of the BAG”

SNEA has conducted a video conferencing during Janmashtami in which our Ex-Dir HR & Ex-Executive Director have participated. During the course of the interaction, they have expressed certain remarks and finally appreciated the role of SNEA in supporting the Decisions of Management.

The Salient comments of Ex-Executive Director who was the chairman of CPSU Cadre Hierarchy committee are:

The JTO to DE/AGM & JAO to CAO are interchangeable under the proposed CPSU Cadre Hierarchy and SNEA played a vital role in arriving at this important conclusion.

This means instead of demanding for a Promotion from one cadre to higher cadre, the SNEA has simply surrendered our prestige and made JTO, SDE, DE / JAO, AO, CAO as Equal. This means “Dilution of cadre”.

The Salient features of the interactions with Ex-DIR-HR are:

All the Old guards have gone and a virtual Heart Transplantation is done on BSNL -- that means the SNEA had a big role in removing the old Heart.

SNEA is the Charioteer and the GMs of BSNL CO are in the Rath during the process of finalization of CPSU cadre Hierarchy and the SNEA has literally made a “Trade off” -- Means What?

Before the Board Meeting at Hyderabad the Ex-DIR-HR herself felt that CPSU Cadre Hierarchy is not suitable for a company like BSNL- that is why AIBSNLEA  demanded and got the Mega14000 Promotion  in all the Streams before the implementation of CPSU CH(i.e.,  SDE to DGM level) which created the Mile stone in the History of DoT BSNL

The Managemet Trainees at various levels is a must for BSNL to grow and SNEA leaders have great vision on that- which clearly shows that SNEA is against the carrier progression of Young DRs.

The Strike Era of Trade Unions has gone and only a negotiation can make some settlement possible which SNEA has understood well --- that means all their (SNEA) Strike Threat is only on paper.

                                                                                                                            

From the above video conferencing, it is very clear that SNEA is not depending on what they have done during the  past three and half  years  and doubted about their victory in the 2nd MVP since they have not achieved anything for the past three and half years and miserably failed.

If SNEA is try to get more Votes from the Executives through this appreciation made by the Ex Executive Director Shri M.M. Khan, why they opposed the recommendation of Khan Committee report and derailed the CPSU CH process for the past 3 and half years.

AIBSNLEA feel this is highly unethical on the part of such highly placed officers, although retired, to praise publically about one Association. During this 2nd MVP Period they should have avoided attending such meetings. If at all required to attend and address such meeting, they should mention about all the Associations Particularly the role of AIBSNLEA. AIBSNLEA strongly condemned the unethical and illegal Act of respectable Ex-Director (HR) & Executive Director of BSNL Board for supporting SNEA through Video Conferencing for the cheap publicity of SNEA in the forthcoming 2nd MVP. It clearly shows that SNEA is smelling the defeat, now trying to influence the Executives in their favour in this unethical way.

 By attempting to rope in the votes of Executives, the SNEA masterminded something but finally landed in a misadventure by which they have caught hold of the Tiger’s Tail and this will be a permanent SCAR on the image of SNEA, which boasted itself as warriors of Trade Union Movement. Not only the self respect of thousands of Executives has been pledged by SNEA at the feet of the Management but also they have made a GROSS VIOLATION OF STIPULATED CODE OF CONDUCT RULES FOR AN ELECTION. The whole episode now identifies the True Colours of SNEA.

THE WHOLE 2nd MVP PROCESS HAS BEEN MADE AS  A MOCERKRY OF DEMOCRACY BY SNEA.  At least now, our Executives must Re orient their thought and mind about SNEA. Come out openly and show them the Door. If it is not NOW then it will be NEVER.

Hence, We fervently appeal all the Executives don’t get confused by this type of unethical Video display and  it is the time to introspect, think over, Decide & Follow Your Heart and cast your Valuable Vote in favour of

AIBSNLEA  at   SL. No 1

and make AIBSNLEA as No 1 Association to safeguard the interest of BSNL Executives & save the BSNL.

 

AIBSNLEA  ZINDABAD!    BSNL ZINDABAD!
