Four all India leaders of BSNL Employees Union, including the President Com. Balbir Singh and General Secretary Com. P.Abhimanyu are going to sit on hunger strike on 22nd July 2015 at the Corporate Office premises demanding vacation of victimisation of the BSNL employees at Jamshedpur by the GM. Many officials, including union office-bearers are transferred and punished at the whims and fancy of the District Administration. Contract labours are retrenched. Several discussions at the District, Circle and Corporate office levels have not brought any result.
It is the continued victimisation of the workers and also the non-intervention by the higher ups that has compelled the CHQ office-bearers to go on hunger strike.
We demand the CMD BSNL to take immediate action against the concerned GM Jamshedpur and also cause vacation of victimisation of union workers there and avoid a direct confrontation with the recognised unions and its leaders, which compelled them to decide for hunger strike on 22nd July 2015.
