2.25 lakh BSNL employees will create History through their Two Days Strike on 21-22 April 2015 for safe guarding the interests of BSNL and for its Revival. The Joint Forum / Forum of BSNL Unions / Associations since the formation of BSNL has been making all out efforts to fight the anti-PSU policy of the government – both NDA and UPA – and have gone on many strikes against VRS, Disinvestment, Unbundling and so on and has been generally successful in stopping them.
This time, the strike is for the Revival of BSNL. It is a “Do or Die” battle, since BSNL is already in red with loss for five years since 2010. The government has to change its anti-PSU policy. It has to honour and implement its own assurances to BSNL that the financial viability of the company will be ensured through payment of ADC, liberal subsidy from USO Fund and also by reimbursement of licence fee. These are all withdrawn for many years.
The 20 Point Strike demands are well known to the workers. It is intended to revive BSNL. BSNL is our bread and butter. It is to be saved.
Towards Two Days Strike on 21-22 April 2015. 100% participation will show the government and the management that the workers will not tolerate any non-sense. We will have to continue the struggles even after the strike.
