The BSNLEU WB Circle expresses their strong resentment with the indifferent attitude of the Circle authority towards the settlement of these issues which were brought to the notice of the concerned authority much earlier by the Staff Side.

How the WBT Circle will revive ??-----BSNL Employees Union  is very much concerned: Nowadays, it became a regular feature that the subscribers are not getting BSNL service (e.g. Broadband, Mobile etc.) on Sundays/Holidays in most of the places in West Bengal. At the beginning it started in some Districts but at present almost all the Districts are being induced with this feature. The Authority is quite conversant with this problem but they are very much indifferent, specially at the base level. In most of the areas cable cut is a big problem, still the authority is not taking proper action against the miscreants. At the same time they are also not taking proper steps to repair/restore the service immediately.  Due to failure of BSNL communication, VAS services like Leased Circuits, CDR Services etc. the WBT circle is losing a lump of revenue every month. Com Animesh Mitra along with other Circle leaders met CGMT WB, GM ETR & GM Kolkata SSA and demands immediate solution of this issue. Accordingly it is decided that a meeting will be held in the chamber of CGMT WB on 24th March,2014 towards the solution of the problem, where GM ETR & GM Kolkata and other concerned officials of four districts adjacent to Kolkata will also be present. Let's hope for the best !! BSNLEU WB Circle is keeping close watch on this issue.

Observe International Women's Day in a befitting manner: The International Women's Day is observed on 8th March throughout the World since 1911. It is needless to mention that day by day while the entire world is realising the importance  of Women almost in every sphere of life but in India the situation is totally different. Here the women are being neglected in all spheres at home, work spot, in wages, social status. Moreover they are sexually harassed/molested in this country.

It is to be reiterated that almost in every meeting the Staff Side has requested the Authority to exchange views regarding development and betterment of service of BSNL in the state to get more revenue.

However as a result of continuous struggle and persuasion of BSNLEU WB Circle, the BSNL WB Authority has at last decided to hold a meeting on 7th March, 2014 regarding development.

Make the slogan "Work on seat and fight on street" in true sense: Dear Comrades, this is the last month of the financial year 2013-2014. It is learnt that the Cash inflow of BSNL WBT Circle up to February 2014 is about Rs. 600 Cr. & the Revenue growth is about 1.39%. From the above fact it is clear that more revenue can be earned this time. It is also learnt that the revenue collection is good i.r.o.  BB & GSM services but poor for Landline service. From the figures received so far it is seen that some SSA has done little better but in some SSA performance is bad compared to last year. So please meet your GM/AO and discuss about the revenue status of your District. Exert all out effort to earn more revenue, keep close watch to the problems like Cable Cut, BTS maintenance & BB maintenance etc. This year already we have achieved 75% of the targeted revenue. try to make it 90%. if Kerala and Orissa can do better then there should not be any problem for West Bengal Circle. This year tariff has been changed also which will help us to earn more revenue, if the existing connections are alive and active. Please recall that we have to make the slogan "Work on seat and fight on Street in reality. So motivate and mobilise your workers to achieve the goal.

Resist the attack on BSNL!!!! It is learnt that  the government takes arbitrary decision for merger of BSNL and MTNL, with out resolving the Disinvestment, HR and other related issues as also on the formation of a Tower Company, bifurcating BSNL. It is needless to mention that due to continuous struggle of the BSNL employees under the leadership of BSNL Employees Union the Govt. could not disinvest 1% share of BSNL till date. On the other hand MTNL is disinvested to the tune of 46.5%. Moreover many unsettled  HR issues are not being settled by the BSNL Authority. The Govt though has sufficient time to meet the Private Companies and favourably consider their view points, finds no time to meet  the Unions/Associations of BSNL and do something for the betterment of BSNL service and solve the unsettled issues of the BSNL employees. At this juncture if the Govt as well as the Authority take the decision to merge BSNL with MTNL or try to bifurcate BSNL to form a Tower company, it will create huge resentment amongst the employees. Keeping all these in view the Forum of Unions/Associations has already met yesterday and decided to go on indefinite strike and also calls upon all the unions/associations of executives & non executives to be ready for immediate action if the Govt. takes any derogative decision against BSNL and its employees. Therefore the District Secretaries are requested to feel the situation and take immediate action to get everybody ready for greater & united struggle.

After active persuasion of BSNLEU WB Circle the BSNL WBT Authority itself is going to prepare the Telephone Bills centrally at CTO Kolkata: The BSNLEU WB Circle is demanding since last one and half year to the Circle Authority to  prepare & distribute the Telephone Bills for the subscribers at own initiation, involving the existing employees (both regular and non regular employees). The Circle Union has observed that due to poor distribution and non availability of Telephone Bills, the subscribers fail to deposit their bill amount in time. Moreover it is also seen that in most of the SSAs a  good number of duplicate bills are issued every month to the esteemed customers. As a result of which BSNL WB Circle is loosing revenue for non availability of bills at the same time this Circle has to expend a  good lump for the issuance of duplicate bills. Therefore to avoid this situation and to obtain good revenue from the subscribers The Staff Side had several discussions with the authority including Circle Council in the past. At last Com. Animesh Mitra, CS BSNLEU WB Circle had a meeting in this regard with CGMT, GM(HR) & GM (Fin) on 28-02-2014. It is heard that Jalpaiguri and Asansol has already taken some steps in this regard, the GM (Fin) also had a talk with CPMG in this matter. It is demanded by the Staff Side that the Authority may take some steps so that the Telephone Bills may be prepared centrally at CTO Kolkata for the entire Circle and distributed throughout the Circle. The authority has assured that the matter will be looked into very seriously.

"Use of Microphone is Prohibited" - A "Talibani Forman" of CGMT, WB Circle !!!!.

It is surprising to note that the CGMT, WB Circle has ordered to prohibit use of microphone in CGMT Office during the demonstration programme of AIBDPA, WB Circle on 28th November, 2013. We condemn this heinous act of the Circle authority. In the recent past it is observed the authority is totally reluctant to improve the BSNL service and at the same time development of WB Circle. It is also observed that that this administration is showing  deaf ears to the demands of the staff side to solve the pending issues (e.g Rule 8 transfer, CGA cases, BSNMRS cases, arrangement of fund for wage of the non-regular workers, fund for Temporary advance etc.) of the employees at the earliest. After getting several requests from the staff side the authority is totally failed to stop the recent atrocities within the BSNL office/exchanges specially at Burdwan & Purulia. It is an attack on the rights of the Trade Union activities as such we are not going to swallow such act of the administration further .

We the working class of the world, are all aware of the fact that today is the 96th anniversary of the great "November Revolution"  (as per Julian Calendar it was also known as "October Revolution") which took place in the erstwhile Russia from 7th to 17th November, 1917 under the leadership of Comrade V. I. Lenin. The entire story was correctly depicted by the famous author Mr. John Rid in his book named "Ten Days that shook the World". The world had experienced a new era which was ruled by the working class,  thus the first socialist country 'Soviet' had emerged at the cost of thousands of lives of revolutionists. Nowadays, after the fall of the 72 years regime of the "Soviet Union", the working class of the world (including India) are oppressed with the attitude of the Capitalist & Imperialist forces, we are facing unemployment, retrenchment, withdrawal of all social securities of life etc. There fore we have to strengthen our unity to fight against the derogative attitude of the oppressors. "7th November" is not only a historic day but also it is the goal and dream of the working class - 'Socialisim'. We the working class are still fighting to acheive the goal.  So Comrades, let all of us take oath today to fight &  save our working place, our society as well as our country from the "Red Eyes" of the evil Imperialist forces. Observe the day in a befitting manner hoisting of Red flag and  general meetings by which we can enthuse our employees to combat any attack on the working class as well as the common people in the near future.

Successful  Second Day of the Dharna programme...... As per the latest news received by the Circle Union the Second Day of the Three days dharna programme  for the settlement of pending demands have been successfully organized both at Kolkata and in all the Districts of West Bengal.

Comrade Animesh Mitra, Circle Secretary, BSNLEU WB Circle and other Circle and District leaders spoke on the occasion. Tomorrow, the third day of the Dharna Programme will be held at the CGMT office, Kolkata and also in the District Head Quarters before the GM/TDM. <<Click for Photos>>

Attention !!!!!! District/Branch Secretaries, give the Management a good lesson:::  You are already aware of the fact that as per the decision of the Kolkata CEC the BSNLEU CHQ has taken a series of programme including  one day Demonstration and 3 days Dharna, to settle our pending demands. We have already got a good response throughout our Circle in the First phase, by staging Demonstration Programme on 30th July. Comrades, now the time has come to make the Dharna Programme from 21st to 23rd August a grand success and to conduct our propaganda very effectively amongst the entire employees. You have already seen that the "Charter of Demands" (which is given in the Circle & CHQ Website) contains the problems of all sections of employees e.g. Regular, Non Regular (Casual/Contractual) and Pensioners. It is decided that the Dharna will be staged at the Branch level on 21st August, at the District level on 22nd and the last day it will be staged at CGMT Office. The District/ Branch secretaries are directed to take every step to ensure that 100% of the members participate in the Dharna. It is observed that the management is playing a very derogative role towards the solution of the issues raised in the "Charter of Demands". Moreover the Authority has decided not to allow the Unions to conduct Demonstration/Dharna etc in the Office premises. In view of the present situation we have to go on struggle focusing the genuine demands of the workers. Comrades let we prepare and give the authority a good lesson with our whole hearted observance of the Dharna Programme and make them understand that nothing is mightier than the "Workers Unity".

Attention District Secretaries!!!!!!!!

It is learnt that the calculation for 78.2%IDA merger has not been completed or included in the Salary of the employees for the month of July, 2013 in many Districts/SSAs within BSNL West Bengal Circle. Comrade Animesh Mitra,Circle Secretary has already discussed the matter with GM (Fin) and demanded early settlement of calculation as well as payment of salary of the employees after merging 78.2%IDA. Therefore the District Secretaries are requested to look into the matter carefully and if necessary speak to the concerned authority so that the employees should get the benefit of 78.2%IDA merger in the earliest opportunity.

It is also stated in this regard that a good number of employees e.g. RM, Group-D etc.  are facing stagnation after giving the effect of 78.2% IDA Merger. The BSNLEU CHQ has already discussed the issue with the Concerned Authority at Corporate Office, New Delhi for immediate solution of the problem. The CHQ has also requested the Circle/District Unions to cite examples of stagnation to the CHQ immediately. Accordingly District Secretaries are requested to give some examples to the Circle Union so that those may be conveyed to BSNLEU CHQ at the earliest.

The CEC meeting of BSNL Employees Union at Kolkata  has taken a historic decision to organize massive demonstration programme on pending demands on 19th July. But later on the United Forum has also joined the programme and it is decided to hold the programme on 30th July. Therefore the District Secretaries are once again requested to organise the programme on pending demands on 30th July, 2013 in a befitting manner. They are also requested to describe the issues to the members and send a report to the Circle Union.

Remembering Comrade Lenin on His 143rd Birth Anniversary.
V. I. Lenin was the leader of the Russian Revolution, the first revolution to build a society free of exploitation. Lenin was an outstanding Marxist theoretician and leader of the people. No other person after Marx and Engels has contributed to the development of Marxist theory as much as Lenin did. Lenin’s entire theoretical work constitutes the advancement of the concept of scientific socialism that equipped the working class movement to conduct the proletarian revolution.

Govt. issues orders for 9.5% interest for EPF deposits.

Sustained efforts of the Central Trade Unions and other labour organisation , the cabinet has now decided approving the higher interest. Accordingly, Ministry of Labour & Employment vide No. R 11018/1/2010 SS-II dated 17th March 2011 has issued orders for calculating 9.5% interest for 2011-12 to the 4.72 crore subscribers. The Finance Ministry was stubbornly opposing the EPFO decision to increase the interest rate of EPF from 8.5% to 9.5% for the year 2011-12, which is fully justified. The EPF Organisation had taken all relevant data for calculating the higher interest. But the private employers opposed it stating that they can not pay the higher interest decided by EPFO. Subsequently, the Finance Ministry also took the same stand. Since there was a stand-off between the Labour Department and the Finance Department, the matter went up to cabinet. .

Communication Minister Meets Telcos
Communications & IT Minister Kapil Sibal met the heads of the major private telecom companies on 21st December 2010 and discussed about their concerns in view of the reactions due to 2G spectrum scam and its fall outs. Since the issues are concerning the private companies, immediate discussion took place by the Minister. But in the case of PSU companies, BSNL & MTNL, where there are many serious concerns, there is no discussion either with the unions or the managements how to sort out them. Even when a complete strike took place from 1st December 2010, there was no meeting by the Communications Minister or State Minister with the Unions. Govt. repeats every time that there is an equal field. But what is the truth? Always private companies are given special treatment and discrimination to PSUs.
