22nd March 2015 is the 15th Foundation Day of BSNL Employees Union, the mighty organisation of the BSNL Non-Executive Employees.
BSNLEU was formed on 22nd March 2001 at the National Convention of Telecom Workers held at Visakhapatnam on 21-22 March 2001. Seven existing unions came together to form the new union.
During its existence of 14 years, BSNLEU has increased its membership, became the only recognised union in BSNL from 2005 ( as per the new recognition rules one more union is recognised from 2013), organised many struggles on the demands of the workers as also for strengthening BSNL and on common demands of the toiling masses. The II wage revision in BSNL from 2007, which benefitted the workers in a bog way was negotiated by BSNLEU as also the four time bound promotion. The entire BSNL workers consider BSNLEU as their champion, irrespective of affiliations.
Now it is the struggle to revive BSNL and strengthen it. It is a united struggles by all the unions and associations in BSNL. Under the leadership of the Forum of BSNL Unions and Associations, the workers are trying to improve the services.
On this 15th Foundation Day, let us pledge to take the union to further heights and make it a militant and revolutionary organisation.
