Both the Associations of the Executives and the Unions of the Non-Executives jointly have to take up the issue of Pay/Wage revision for the employees of BSNL from January 2017.The DPE has to issue orders for the Pay Revision Committee for the Executives in PSUs. It has also to give guidance for starting the wage revision through negotiation with the unions of non-executives.

Since the Forum of BSNL Unions/Associations represent the unions of Non-Executives and associations of executives, it has to take the initiative for getting the orders issued by the Department of Public Enterprises. The Pay Revision Committee as also wage negotiations will take much time and hence the urgency.
