[18.05.2015]Corporate Office calls for report on the functioning of Works Committees.
In the National Council meeting held on 14.05.2015, the staff side made a bitter complaint about the non-functioning of the Works Committees. Formation of Works Committees at SSA level is the demand, as well as achievement of BSNLEU. However, in most of the SSAs, either the Works Committee is still not constituted, or meetings are not being held, as per the stipulation of the Corporate Office orders. It is obvious that the district level administration does not want to convene meetings of the Works Committee, for fear of criticism from Recognised Unions, on the issue of improving the quality of services. Unfortunately, the district unions of the Recognised Unions are also not showing much interest in getting the meeting of the Works Committees conducted periodically. CHQ calls upon the district unions to view this issue seriously and to take steps for conducting regular meetings of the Works Committees. The Director (HR) has also assured in the last National Council meeting, to explore the possibilities of forming Works Committees at circle levels.<<view corporate office letter>>

[18.05.2015]Payment of EPF to casual labourers from 01.10.2000 to 10.01.2011 settled.
The EPF scheme has already been implemented to the casual labourers working in BSNL, as a social security measure. However, the scheme is implemented only w.e.f. 10.01.2011, even though the casual labourers are working even before the BSNL is formed. Hence, BSNLEU and the BSNL Casual Contract Workers Federation (BSNL CCWF) have been continuously taking up the issue that the EPF scheme should be implemented w.e.f. 01.10.2000. As a result, Corporate Office has issued letter today, directing all the CGM’s to immediately make payment of EPF contribution arrears for the period from 01.10.2000 to 10.01.2011. All the casual labourers working BSNL will get a very big amount credited in their EPF accounts as a result of this order. BSNLEU congratulates all the beneficiaries.<<view corporate office letter>><<enclosure>>

[18.05.2015]Procurement of sufficient stores and materials to take advantage of the scheme offering free calls between 9 pm and 7 am - CHQ writes to the CMD BSNL.
All are aware that the Management has introduced the scheme which offers free calls on landlines between 9 pm and 7 am. This scheme cannot bring the desired results, unless our landline network is maintained fault-free. The acute shortage of stores and materials prevailing at the field level is a big hurdle in maintaining a fault-free landline network. CHQ has written to the CMD BSNL demanding immediate and adequate procurement of good quality stores and materials. Circle and district secretaries are requested to take up this issue at their respective levels, pressurising the administration to promptly procure the requisite stores and materials.<<view letter>>
