It is now understood that that tentative date fixed for the National Council meeting is again postponed. The meeting was fixed for 9th December after continued demand from the Staff Side. Now the Management has postponed the date to 23rd December 2013. It is disturbing to note that the last meeting of the National council was held on 30th January 2013, almost 10 months back.
After the VI Membership Verification in April 2013 and grant of recognition to 2 unions, on this or that reason, the National Council had not met even once during the last 10 months. No Standing Committee meeting has also not been held for long time, even before the verification.This is intolerable delay.
The BSNL Management should understand that the negotiating machinery can not be kept non-working like this.
