22.07.2017 SNATTA has withdrawn support from Strike on 27.07.2017
Friends, Brothers and Sisters, let's discuss about agendas of the strike called by JOINT FORUM on 27.07.2017
1. 3rd PRC:
First of all we have gathered a lot many experiences through these years about the behavior of management, and this time it's clearly showing their positive attitude towards implementation of 3rd PRC. Our CMD and Director(HR) are continuously trying to give their views in favour of 3rd PRC to DoT with 15% fitment and how to cope with the additional expenditure of Rs. 2800 crore, may be needed per year to serve the very demand.
Now it's the Union leaders' time to talk to DoT/Govt. Of India for having the benefits earlier from 3Rd PRC , We cannot understand any point to strike BSNL or give a treatment to our management where they are completely in favor of 3rd PRC. It's time to go for DHARNA/HUNGER STRIKE/SLOGAN/GATHERING/MARCH in front of parliament or DoT office, not in BSNL. What you say?
2. 30% Superannuation benefits:
You know management is really trying this time to solve these DR issue in progress, as management already agreed on SAB at previously we had 18% SAB, thereafter it is going to increase up to 5% (3% in final stage +2% file is already in process) so we will get 23% SAB (Super Annuation Benefit). They promise us to increase it gradually with time to make it bearable for our beloved organisation.
Now should we work with BSNL management with a friendly attitude or war with them on this point. What you say ?
DoT is playing with us with this very legitimate issue that is standard pay scale(E2,E3), not BSNL management. CMD have been saying for a long time that we are completely eligible for these demands. Then why to strike BSNL for this time where other Telecom sectors are continuously making potential threat to our existence. What you say ?
4. Injustice in pension contributions :
This is the only valid point that we may fight with management that the pension holder should have their justice.
Friends we have complete respect on all the employees of BSNL and we want everyone's legitimate rights too, but how can SNATTA go for strike for this single issue. What you say ?
We are highly democratic and believe in unity as we have prove it with our historic wins on demands. We provide our logical fights by achieving our JE DESIGNATION, consecutively and successful arrange and about to be completed THREE JTO LICE AND TRAINING, ONE INCREMENT, RULE 8 TRANSFER only for JE to JTO /JAO, OUR JTO RR 2014, EX-SERVICEMEN demands, EXTENTION OF JE AND JAO recruitment etc.
21.07.2017 GS writes to GM(Rectt. & Trng.) once again requesting her to publish notification for holding up JTO LICE for the vaccancy year 2016-17 as the vaccancy year falls due on 30the June'2017 for qualifying 5 yrs service condition in NE-9 scale as Gr C.
19.07.2017 Update on 30% Superannuation Benefit
Today,our leadership met with GM(SR) in corporate office discussed about the long pending issue of superannuation benefit.It is a great pleasure to learn that management is soon going to approve additional 2% superannuation benefit and file has gone to management committe for approval. Further the remaining percentage will be strongly considered as per financial condition of organisation. SNATTA welcomes BSNL management for the step ahead to this long pending issue and we are hopeful to get our rightful demand of 30% Superannuation benefit in near future.
14.07.2017 GS writes letter to DIR(HR) regarding "Unwanted delay in declaration of 2 nd JTO (T) LICE result for VY 2014-15 held on 24.09.2016 in case of Punjab Circle" .

12.07.2017 Update on 3rd PRC
