JOINT ACTION COMMITTEE OF BSNL ASSOCIATIONS / UNIONS OF EXECUTIVE AND NON-EXECUTIVES
Decisions taken in the meeting of the JAC held on 7th Sept. 2011
A meeting of the Joint Action Committee of the BSNL Associations / Unions of the Executives and Non-Executives was held on 7th September 2011 at the National Council office. Com. Suresh Kumar presided.
After thorough discussion, the following decisions were taken:
The meeting strongly opposed the orders issued by the BSNL management withdrawing the existing facilities of encashment of leave on LTC, freezing the All India LTC for two years and stopping the BSNLMRS allowance without voucher. These facilities have been granted after detailed discussion and agreement. The present orders are arbitrary and anti-worker.
The JAC, therefore, decided to organise massive dharnas at SSA/Circle/Corporate Office level on 14th September 2011 in protest against the above order and demanding the management to immediately withdraw the same. All the Circle/District Secretaries are urged to make the programme a big success.
The implications and anti-worker provisions of the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) Bill presented in the Parliament and referred to the Standing Committee was explained by the Convener. The Central/ State Government and PSU employees and Pensioners have already held an All India Convention and has decided to oppose the anti-worker bill and to present a memorandum to the President / Prime Minister signed by crore of workers and supporters. A Parliament March will be organised on 29th November 2011. PFRDA Bill is also against the interest of the BSNL pensioners and also to those who are recruited after 01-10-2000 who will get pension as per the New Pension Scheme (NPS).
The JAC meeting decided to be part of this movement to save the pension of the BSNL workers and participate in the programme decided by the All India Convention including in the Parliament March.
The other issues
will be discussed in the next meeting. The meeting came to an end at 18.30
hours after vote of thanks.
