AUAB CTD Circle meeting held on 5th March at Telephone Bhawan. On behalf of AIBSNLEA, CP & CS attended the meeting. Three agendas were discussed as stated below & the following decisions were taken unanimously.
1) Review of 3 day strike: In CTD the strike was a big success though a small section of people did not participate. In future AUAB leadership should be more active to organize future movement in a better manner. It was also decided that all the Executives' Association will bear Rs.5000/- as the cost of the organisation of strike.
2) Delay in payment of salary for the month of Feb'19: All the leaders equivocally expressed resentment for unprecedented non payment of salary in time. They also reacted about the way BSNL CO paid salary for some circles including the Corporate Office. It was decided that on behalf of AUAB/CTD a letter of resentment will be submitted to CGM/CTD as well as AUAB central leadership will be requested to take suitable action to avoid such type of discrimination.
3) Bio metric attendance in CTD: It was decided that we are very much in favour of imposing discipline in CTD regarding attendance ,but everybody should be covered by this system. It was observed that some high officers did not register their names in the system nor they are giving their attendance. In some places most of the employees / officers working in RLUs/RSUs are beyond the coverage of Bio metric system.
In view of the above AUAB will write a letter to CGM/CTD in response to the Circular dt 2.03.2019 given in Medha by Sr.GM(HR & Admin) stating that:-
i) 100% of the employees & officers of all levels should be covered by Bio metric system.
ii) All the BSNL offices including RLUs & RSUs and rental buildings should be covered under Bio metric system.
iii) Before linking the Bio metric attendance system with SAP/ERP AUAB leadership should be consulted to review the pros & cons in detail.
