The Indefinite Hunger Strike by the BSNL Casual and Contract Labour Union (CCLU) in Kerala in front of the CGM Office continued for the 17th day. Various trade union organisations visited and extended solidarity.
A ‘Struggle Support Committee’ including various Federations and Trade Unions was formed with Com. Sivan Kutty, MLA as Chairman and Com. K.Mohanan, Circle Secretary BSNLEU as Convener. Leaders of many trade unions including CITU, BSNLEU, SNEA, NFPE, Confederation of CG Employees and Workers, BEFI, Kerala NGO Union etc. are members of the Committee. The Committee demanded the BSNL Management to discuss the demands with the CCLU and settle the same without further delay.
BSNLEU, Kerala Circle, has organised 48 hours day-night massive Satyagraha in front of the CGM office, Thiruvananthapuram on 22-23 July 2015 demanding immediate settlement of the demands including increase in the minimum wage, upgradation of workers etc.
BSNLEU and CCLU together are organising a massive March to Residence of CGM Thiruvananthapuram on 28th July as part of the struggle.
We demand the BSNL Corporate Office and Kerala Circle to discuss the issue with the Unions and settle the demands urgently.
