AIBSNLEA is ready to play its role as earlier as a true friend of DR/BR & particularly AIGETOA.

AIBSNLEA supports AIGETOA agitation
AIBSNLEA has extended its support to the agitation of AIGETOA in view of the common demands for which we jointly struggled in the past under the banner of United Forum of BSNL Executives' Associations. The arbitrary notification of E1A & E2A intermediatory pay scales by DoT has lowered the status of JTO & SDE equivalent executives. Future recruitment of JTO & JAO will take place in E1 pay scale only. This fact was well known that DoT has processed E1A & E2A intermediatory pay scales then how the said Majority Executive Association has allowed its notification. In the recent referendum of Executives' Associations, Majority Association has been given all negotiation powers on policy matters concerning to the executives in BSNL. Hence, the Majority Association just after the notification of these intermediatory pay scales should have exhausted all negotiation channels in BSNL & DoT to get withdrawal of this notification instead of jumping into agitation directly. However, it is up-to them to take such decision. AIGETOA has preferred to align with the Majority Association for the settlement of HR issues leaving aside the platform of United Forum of BSNL Executives' Associations comprising AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA & AITEEA.
AIBSNLEA, eventhough is committed to support AIGETOA in their efforts for settlement of the genuine HR issues but AIBSNLEA can't be mortgaged to some association. AIBSNLEA is struggling for getting limited Trade Union Facilities at All India Level/Circle Level & SSA Level with BSNL Management and through court cases.
At present after the referendum process AIBSNLEA CHQ, Circles & SSAs are not mentally prepared for the agitation. In case the CHQ Office Bearers, Circle/District Office Bearers & Members are victimized by the management, AIBSNLEA does not have any recognized channel to save them.
In view of this, AIBSNLEA decided to extend its solidarity support to AIGETOA struggle. We extend our best wishes and support for the success of their struggle & settlement of HR issues.
Due to our constant persuasion & active support of our beloved GS,CHQ promotion order os Sri Sumit Saha to the post of SE(Electrical) issued today.This is an end of discrimination to Sri Saha whose name was unjustifiedly left out (click to see order).

AIBSNLEA extends its its active support to the agitation programmes being launched by the Joint Forum of BSNL Executives’ Associations in view of the common HR issues of Executives raised in the charter of demands as the settlement of the important issues is more important rather than the credit who so ever takes it.
Further, at this juncture, AIBSNLEA suggests to have a single Executive Association by merging all the existing Executive Associations in BSNL. Single Executive Association will have a great strength and bargaining power to impress upon the DoT Administration as well as BSNL Management and to provide a safe umbrella to the entire executive fraternity of BSNL. This concept is available in many PSUs.

GS Writes to:
CS,ACSs & OS went to NSCBTTC,Kalyani on 29-03-2017 to meet the JTO Trainees of Batch 51 & 52.About 75 trainees were present to attend the meeting organised in the training Centre mess.CS & ACS welcomed them in the executive community of BSNL & take the responsibility organising executives for their better future & to develop BSNL as a mighty organisation. CS also explained the brief history of AIBSNLEA as an umbrella organisation of all executives cadre of BSNL,formation of UF alongwith AIGETOA & AITEEA and joint struggle to fulfill the legitimate demands of BRs & DRs as well as DoT recruited executives in true sense.
Our members of NSCB TTC were also present.

The session was interactive and drew attention of all the trainees present there.
Protest against lowering of payscales of JTO/JAO, SDE/AO & equivalent cadres:
United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations AIBSNLEA, AIGETOA & AITEEA strongly protest against the notification of DoT OM dated 28.03.2017 wherein payscales of JTO/JAO, SDE/AO & equivalent cadres have been lowered arbitrarily, which will seriously demoralize & de-motivate the executives in BSNL. We express our strong resentment against the DoT decision & failure of BSNL Management in this regard.
United Forum of Executives Associations will shortly finalize the protest actions against such demoralizing act of DoT / BSNL.
It is unfortunate that the matter has been mis-handled by some executives Associations by giving a call of agitation & withdrawing without any fruitful outcome. It has strengthen DoT to ignore the protest of BSNL Executives. The fact remains that efforts were taken by the same executive associations to sabotage the outgoing agitation call given by United Forum of BSNL Executives Associations in the month of Dec., 2016 and Jan., 2017 and they impressed upon the BSNL Management to victimize the CHQ/Circle/Distt. level office bearers of United Forum by issuing the memorandum & deduction of salary for two days i.e. 27th & 28th Dec., 2016 for participating in Dharna programme. These actions has strengthen the BSNL/DoT management to conveniently ignore the genuine grievances of executives in BSNL.
Hence, United Forum has to decide its own course of actions to protest the interest of entire BSNL Executives community rather coming under the trap of so called executive associations to further damage the interest of executives of BSNL.
Let us decide & keep ready for the conclusive struggle to show the strength of executives in achieving the settlement of legitimate demands.
