WHY AIBSNLOA IN THE ENSUING REFERENDUM !!!!!!
There was a time when there was none to raise the voice of BSNL executives and to focus real issues before the administration. This has given birth of AIBSNLOA. Since its inception we continued to take up various development issues / activities before the administration at various levels as we thought the vary survival of our company was the need of the hour viz a viz addressing important HR related issues.
I) Our stand regarding PRC was appreciated by the PMO and forwarded to DOT immediately, first time in the history of BSNL See letter of CHQ, Letter of PMO
II) We have persuaded our long pending issue for extending the fitment benefits of 78.2% since implementation of 2nd PRC. At that time all other associations was totally ignorance on this issue. See letter . BSNL issued order on 13-06-2013 stating that "All allowances shall continue to be paid at IDA basic pay with 68.8% fitment till further order". We protested immediately stating that it was violating the DPE guidelines and even contradicting the DOT's Presidential order dated 10-06-2013 and requested to review the decision and allow all allowances with the fitment of 78.2% with retrospective effect. But other Associations who signed the agreement with BSNL on 2012 did never raised any voice on this issue. Now BSNL CO reviewed payment order issued allowing allowances with 78.2% benefits but w.e.f 01-10-2016. But this is not any achievement because we have lost our rightful claims for about nine years.
III) Other Associations had no role at that point of time. Now-a-days these organisation are trying to take advantage of the situation deviating from their actual demand. It was wrong perception on their parts.
IV) E2-E6 Scales : Our consistent stand since pay scales were granted to BSNL Executives on 05-03-2016 is E2toE6 in place of E1 to E5. While other associations has no clear vision on this issue earlier.They demanded early only E1A and E2A scale replacement in spite of having clear instruction of DPE on intermediary scale. Now they demanded only replacement of E2 and E3 instead of E1 and E2 scale which will definitely take it the Court as there is no clear view on existing E3 scale. Further anomaly will create among SDEs and Sr SDEs. Finally Management committee recommended our proposal to DOT for approval. It is proved that when we believe something is right and justified we need to stand committed to that stand without oscillation. Unfortunately DOT not recommended. On our part we believe that it is entirely responsibility of CMD/BSNL to get his proposal approved by DOT without any dilution of it by seeking re-examination of the issue. We will fix our strategy accordingly.
