The Central Executive Committee meeting of BSNL Employees Union held at Ahmed Nagar on 19-21 February has decided to celebrate the 15th Birth Anniversary of BSNLEU, which falls on 22nd March 2016, in a big way.
BSNLEU, the beloved organisation of the BSNL Employees, was formed on 22nd March 2001 in the National Convention held at Visakhapatnam (A.P), 15 years back. It was formed by merging 7 existing unions, including E.III, T.III, Administrative Union, Civil Wing Union, ITEU and P&T Industrial Workers Union. It was formed in the august presence of Com.E.Balanandan, respected leader of the Working Class and President CITU, Com.K.Adinarayana, Secretary General, NFPE, Com.N.M.Sundaram, General Secretary, AIIEA and other leaders.
Veteran leaders Coms. Sisir Bhattacharjee and Moni Bose were elected Patrons. Coms. J.N.Mishra and V.A.N.Namboodiri were elected President and General Secretary respectively.
During the last 15 years, BSNLEU has continuously grown and is the recognised union since 2004. More than 50% of the entire non-executive employees are members of BSNLEU. During these years it has taken up the issues of BSNL employees effectively and settled most of the problems to the satisfaction of the workers.
The VII Membership Verification is going to be held on 10th May 2016. BSNLEU will certainly will win with the first position. But that is not sufficient. The majority in membership should be reflected in the verification with BSNLEU getting more than 50% of the total employees in BSNL. A big campaign has o be organised for this purpose.
As per the call of the Ahmednagar CEC, BSNLEU Day should be celebrated throughout the country with various programmes like rallies, meetings, seminars, symposium etc.
