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. NOW THAT NFTE BSNL IS PASTING AND DISTRIBUTING THE XEROX COPY OF THE BSNL MANAGEMENT NOTICE TO ALL THE EMPLOYEES, WE FEEL THAT IT IS RIGHT TIME TO BRING IT TO THE NOTICE OF ALL EMPLOYEES OF BSNL WHAT OUR CHQ HAS WRITTEN AS A REPLY TO THAT NOTICE. THE REPLY IS NOT ONLY A FITTING REPLY TO MANAGEMENT, BUT ALSO EXPOSES NFTE NAKEDLY

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.
