As per the directions of the CHQ BSNLEU, today the BSNLEU, SNATTA , BSNLMS and the AIBDPA jointly celebrated the achievement of the orders on 78.2% IDA merger issue along with the clearence of pension liability case by BSNL. These two issues were of major achievement by the FORUM for the past many a years, and finally the FORUM observed two days strike on 21st and 22nd April,2015. Consequent on the successful observation of strike the DoT Secretary met the FORUM leaders on 01st May 2015 and discussed the issues, with an assurance that a cabinet note will be suitably prepared and sent for approval. Finally, the Cabinet discussed the note, before the reshuffling of Central Cabinet took place and gave its nod. The DoT issued the orders on 18th July 2016 with regard to 78.2% IDA Merger for the pensioners . It was a greatest achievement of the FOBU&A and its united struggles for a quite a long period. Unfortunately, certain union has started claiming all credit of the united struggles, and even went upto felicitation programmes to their all India Union leaders. The efforts of all CHQs of the constituent unions of FOBU&A cannot be sidelined by any one single union. In addition, we have to register and record the efforts of the A I B D P A CHQ also, whose advisor Com.Namboodir and Gen.Secretary Com.Jayaraj also pursed the case consistently. The Association also charlked out various types of protest programmes at the all India level in order to see that the retired officials will get the benefit of 78.2% IDA merger on par with serving employees. In order to uphold the real truth of FOBU&A efforts in achieving the agenda, the BSNLEU CHQ in its CEC meeting held at New Delhi on 18th,19th and 20th July 2016, gave directions to observe 27th July 2016 as a Victory Celebration day and explain whole of the things in detail. And it was observed today at the all India level, more particularly in Karnataka Circle. In many a places, the celebrations took place even in branch units also. In certain SSAs, like Shivamogga and U K Dist. even SNEA and AIBSNLEA joined the Victory celebrations. We thank one and all for this unique and big achievement which was pending since long time. Photos received by the circle union upto 2200 hours have been uploaded. Request you to go through the same. Congratulations and Thank you all. BSNLEU KARNATAKA CIRCLE....

NDA government planning to increase Maternity Leave to 26 weeks. The NDA government is planning to increase Maternity Leave to 26 weeks. According to the media, the government is taking steps to introduce a bill in this regard, in the monsoon session of the Parliament. The government is planning to make this applicable not only to the government departments and to the public sector, but also to the private sector. If the Act is passed, undoubtedly it will give good benefit to the working women. At the same time, we must understand that such steps are being taken by the government only to cover up its anti labour policies. On one side, the government is giving huge concessions to the corporates and MNCs. On the other side, it is trying to amend all the existing labour laws to the benefit of the employers. To cover up such pro-corporate and anti - labour policies, side by side, the government is also giving some small benefits like increasing the maternity leave.
THE CONVENER OF THE FORUM has addressed a letter to GS NFTE requesting them to reconsider their decision to stay out of FORUM. This is very much required for the United struggles which have to be launched immediately to protect the BSNL Company from Disinvestment and Privatisation moves of the Government of India. The FORUM letter is attached herewith.
BSNL is saved from disinvestment and privatisation only because of struggles. The Niti Aayog has recommended a list of PSUs for closure/disinvestment. The inter ministerial meeting of secretaries is going to consider the recommendations shortly. Under this situation, a top official of the government has stated that the government is going to consider disinvestment/strategic sale only in those PSUs where least resistance is expected from the employees. It is to be remembered that a number of united strikes have taken place in BSNL against disinvestment and privatisation. Now, it becomes clear that only these united struggles have saved BSNL from disinvestment/privatisation.

We have informed through our website yesterday that, the government has formed the 3rd Pay Revision Committee (PRC) for the officers of the Public Sector undertakings. The recommendations of this 3rd PRC will be applicable only to the officers, and will not be directly applicable to the Non-Executives of the Public Sector. As regards the Non-Executives, the wage revision will be bargained with the Management, by their recognised unions, and finally wage revision agreement will be signed. However, the quantum of fitment, rate of increment, etc., recommended by the 3rd PRC, will have certainly have a bearing on the wage settlement of the Non-Executives. BSNLEU has already demanded that the Management should start the Wage Revision talks. However, the Management has replied that Wage Revision talks would start, only when clearance is given by the Administrative Ministry, ie., the DoT. Now that the government has already declared the formation of the 3rd PRC, we will demand that the DoT should give necessary clearance to BSNL, for starting negotiations for the Wage Revision.
The Circle Working Committee meeting of BSNLEU Karnataka Circle will be held on 18th and 19th June 2016 at Mysuru. Meeting Notice is attached for the information of all CWC members and Dist.Secretaries.
Today, myself and DS Madikeri met CGM KTK Circle in his chamber and had a very detailed discussion on the issue of Materials supply position to Madikeri and in general to all SSAs of KTK Circle The Stores supply included Power Plants,Batteries, Low Count Cable, Drop wires,Cables and UY/UV Connectors etc., Further, we also discussed the issue of Consolidation of SSA into Business Area,which is a new project for Karnataka Circle and creating a panic situation within non executive staff. The CGM categorically informed that no such move of shifting of files related to HR issues,planning issues and ERP issues are there before 1st July 2016. We are yet to have a detailed discussion amongst ourselves (within admiminstration concerned) and nothing will take place immediately. However, our union demanded a detailed meeting with all the non executive circle secretaries of Karnataka Circle and brief about the grim situation. The letter addressed to CGM on the subject matter has been handed over to CGM. The Copy of the letter is attached herewith for everyone's information.
. BSNL’s revenue for the financial year 2015-16 is expected to be around Rs.30,000 crore. It’s Operational Profit will be around Rs.2,000 crore. This information was given by the CMD BSNL in the meeting with the Core Committee, held today. It is noteworthy that BSNL’s Operational Profit was only Rs.672 crore in the financial year 2014-15.
It is a great news that Karnataka circle has earned a profit of around Rs.40 crore in the recently concluded financial year 2015-16. Karnataka is a very big circle, with a lot of potential for increasing revenue. It is really encouraging to know that this circle has become profit making. BSNLEU heartily congratulates the entire officers and employees of Karnataka circle for this great performance. The other profit making circles are Andaman & Nicobar, Jammu & Kashmir, Kerala and Odisha.
The services of BSNL suffer to a great extent due to the damaging of the OFC and copper cables of BSNL. However, due precautionary and follow up actions are not being taken at the field levels. In most of the cases, where filing of FIR is warranted, the same is not being done. This issue was seriously raised by the Staff Side in the 34th meeting of the National Council. Following this, Corporate Office has sent a letter to all the CGMs. Even this letter also seems to be a mere formality only. Hence, circle and district unions are requested to be vigilant on this issue, and create sufficient pressure on the field level administration to take serious action
The views expressed by the CMD BSNL on VRS, in an interview given to the Indian Express recently, caused worry to the employees. In that interview, the CMD BSNL had stated that VRS is necessary to make BSNL profitable. The leaders of the Core Committee of the Forum, met the CMD BSNL on 30.05.2016, and strongly told that VRS is not acceptable. Further, Forum also wrote to the CMD BSNL, refuting his arguments in favour of VRS. After this, the CMD BSNL met media persons at Pune on 02.06.2016. In that press meet, the CMD has told that VRS will not be implemented in BSNL. We welcome CMD BSNL's changed view on VRS issue.

JTO LICE for the vacancies of the year 2013-14 was held on 22.05.2016. This exam was held under the new JTO RR 2014. Some uncertainty was created due to the order of the Hon’ble CAT, Patna bench, which has said that the JTO LICE for the vacancies of 2013-14 should not be conducted as per the JTO RR 2014. BSNLEU has been demanding that the Management should not accept this judgement and proceed to declare the results. Com. P.Abhimanyu, GS met Ms. Sujata Ray, Director (HR) and Ms. Anima Roy, GM (Rect.) today and insisted that the results should be declared without any delay. Management replied that they are working in that direction and results are likely to be declared within a day or two.

BSNLEU MYSURU MEMBERSHIP VERIFICATION CAMPAIGN ON 01.05.2016: It was a historic campaign meeting never done in entire Karnataka Circle. It was not a campaign done by BSNL Employees Union District Secretary and other office bearers!!!!! In turn it was a membership verification campaign done by residents of Telecom Staff Quarters of Mysuru by inviting the Dist.Secretary and other office bearers to their place of living!!!!! I do not think that this has not happened at the all India level also!!!! The residents of BSNL Staff quarters at Udayagiri and RTTC Mysuru invited all the district office bearers of BSNLEU to come and campaign on 01st May 2016, in their staff quarters area, as it was a day of workers’ – May Day. When our Union leaders went there, it was a shocking surprise for them, as the women employee members of our union, welcomed with “Mangala aarathi” (Welcome with Sacred light), garlanded all the leaders who went for campaigning, the leaders were taken to each members’ house and offered food and beverages to them. It is very important to note that, the family of one of the CGA comrade of BSNLEU- Mrs. Margaret Mary Jayasheelan- who resides in the staff quarters, has made arrangements to cut a very big cake, exclusively prepared in the name of International Worker’s day – May Day. It was a very exuberant campaign arranged by resident members of BSNLEU from their side, with lot of love and affection and with a very big promise that all the resident members – 80 houses in total- will vote for BSNLEU. When other unions are trying hard to get audience for their meetings, here is a unique example of members inviting BSNLEU leaders on their own to their residential venue, and promises us that we will vote for BSNLEU only!!!!
NFTE was a party to agree to a meager PLI amount on 30th March 2016, meeting. But immediately on 31st March it denied that it has never agreed to it, when BSNLEU campaigned that it will be a shameful act on all non executive employees to accept two digit PLI amount as offered by BSNL Management. Here is the three episodes story of true NFTE colur.. please go through and bring it to the notice of our employees, irrespective of union affiliations.......
In the midst of 7th membership verification, the NFTE BSNL is moving with false claims and total myths against BSNLEU. Even though all these have been replied by BSNLEU on many occassions, because NFTE has raised the issue now, all the facts and details have been putforth by BSNLEU. You may please go throuh the same.
BSNLEU CHQ GS HAS REPLIED TO CMD BSNL NOTICE IN A MOST BEFITTING WAY.

EXTRACT OF THE SAMPLE BALLOT PAPER OF 7th Membership verification is attached herewith for general and advance information purpose.
The SEWA BSNL CHQ, immediately after the signing of alliance pact with NFTE BSNL, started alleging the BSNLEU in a most unwanted way. These allegations were circulated in the social media like anything. After studying the allegations made by SEWA BSNL, the BSNLEU CHQ has replied the baseless allegations which have been attached herewith. It is a fitting reply by BSNLEU CHQ, wherein all the false allegations have been replied. Both the members of SEWA BSNL who are with BSNLEU and also with other Unions/Associations are requested to go through the same.
Babasaheb Dr.B R Ambedkar's 125th Birth day celebrations were conducted by various units of BSNLEU in Karnataka Circle. This programme was observed as per the call given by BSNLEU CHQ and Circle. Photos of those units, who sent photo after the celebration programme on 14th April, is attached herewith. The other divisions like Davangere,DK Dist., etc., even though they have celebrated the programme, no photos have been received by them. It will be uploaded once they send the photos.
[09.04.2016]Flip-flop, about turn and somersault of NFTE on PLI issue. NFTE is criticising BSNLEU on various platforms on the PLI issue. Hence, we are duty bound to give reply to NFTE. In it's Aurangabad CEC meeting, NFTE took decision to organise "indefinite hunger strike" on the PLI issue. But, this programme was never conducted. Will NFTE friends tell the workers why even "a single day hunger strike" was not organised by them on PLI issue. When the CMD offered only a 2 digit PLI, BSNLEU rightly rejected it. BSNLEU said, paying PLI in a 2 digit amount is an insult to the workers. It rightly demanded payment of Minimum PLI. But, NFTE crawled before the CMD and accepted the 2 digit PLI. On 30.03.2016, com. Islam Ahmed ran "a 100 metre race" and attended the PLI Committee meeting convened at "only one day's notice". In the meeting, he declared that NFTE is not rejecting the meagre amount of PLI, offered by the Management Side. (NFTE website entry dated 30.03.2016 ) However, after "facing music" from his own people, on the next day itself, com. Islam Ahmed somersaulted, ran to the Director(HR), and told her that NFTE is not accepting the "meagre amount of PLI." (NFTE website entry dated 31.03.2016) Now, com. Islam Ahmed says that the door for PLI payment was opened by NFTE after 7 years, and now the amount has to be bargained. BSNLEU has already demanded Minimum PLI, and to achieve this, two rounds of agitational programme are already conducted by BSNLEU and it's alliance partners. Cooperation to the Management is totally withdrawn from 08.04.2016. Will com. Islam Ahmed say what agitation NFTE is going to conduct to bargain for a better PLI?
09.04.2016 - The real face of NFTE. When the BSNLEU led United Forum gave letter for agitational programme, Management gave a threatening letter to GS, BSNLEU. NFTE very happily uploaded this letter on their website on 07.04.2016. What a shame? This clearly shows that NFTE is in collaboration with the Management. Com. Islam Ahmed has stated that this letter is a slap on the face of BSNLEU. Yes, only those who fight against the Management will get slapped, and not the sycophants (chamcha giri karnewale). Do the NFTE friends have the guts to upload the United Forum's letter dated 07.04.2016, written to the Management?
14th April 2016 happens to be the 125th birthday of Dr.Babasaheb B R Ambedkar. The Country could not see another person of this caliber,capacity,knowledge and social struggle. The BSNLEU Karnataka Circle directs all the Dist.Secretaries to organise the birth day celebration programme on 14th April 2016 itself, even though it is a declared holiday. All the DWC members,CWC members and other activists at the District level may pay floral tribute to the great social scientist the land has seen. Seperate programmes may be organised on convenient days after wards. But mobilise the members on 14th April at around 1100 hours and pay floral tribute without fail.
