The BSNL Non-Permanent Workers in Belgaum is on the struggle path. After sustained struggle earlier, they were given minimum wage as per orders. But later all of the 284 employees were victimised and sent out stating that there is no work. no new tenders were also not floated. The Management and contractor were taking revenge upon the poor workers whose only crime was that they demanded that their full wages be paid to them ending the exploitation.
The Union started agitation against retrenchment.They started indefinite dharna after giving due notice. The Deputy Chief Labour Commissioner intervened and in the meeting held on, 19-02-2014 the issue was discussed. On the advice of the Dy.CLC, the dharna was deferred. The next meeting of conciliation will be held on 25-03-2014. We demand the management to settle the issue amicably by reinstating all the retrenched workers, who have been serving BSNL for a long period.
