[22.06.2016]Once again Modi government is pushing through amendments to Labour Laws.
Immediately after coming to power, the Modi government tried to make pro-corporate amendments to the Labour Laws. Through these amendments, the idea of the government, is to give "hire and fire" powers to the employers. The trade union movement of the country stiffly opposed the amendments through struggles. BSNLEU is also part and parcel of all these struggles. After lying low for some time, now the Modi government has decided to once again push through the amendments to the Labour Laws. Accordingly, steps are being taken to amend four Labour Laws. They are, Shop & Establishment Act, Employees Provident Funds & Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952, Maternity Benefits Act 1961 and Employees Compensation Act, 1923. Any amendment to the Labour Laws, which will be detrimental to the working class, will be stiffly opposed.
[22.06.2016]Black badge demonstrations on 05-07-2016-circle and district secretaries are requested to make serious preparations.
The United Forum, consisting of BSNLEU, SNATTA and BSNL MS, has given call to conduct black badge demonstrations, on 05-07-2016. This agitation is to register our protest to the negative attitude of the BSNL Board, in the settlement of the genuine grievances of the Non-Executives. Many issues like E1 pay scale, pension contribution to the Directly Recruited employees, one extra increment to the Non-Executives recruited after 01-01-2007 and gratuity to the casual labourers are already approved by the Management Committee and have gone for the approval of the Board of Directors. But, these issues are lying pending with the BSNL Board for a very long time. This deadlock cannot continue for long. Circle and district secretaries are requested to take serious steps, in close coordination with SNATTA and BSNL MS, to make the agitation a grand success.
