BSNLCCWF has demanded that the casual and contract workers should be granted Gratuity as per the labour laws of the land. The Management Committee of BSNL has already approved the same, but it is pending with the BSNL Board, which sought further clarifications from the management on the financial implications. For the casual labour, all the information are available with the management since, the EPF with retrospective effect from 01-10-2000 was ordered for these workers.
We demand that the next meeting of the BSNL Board, which is expected to meet on 28th September 2016 take a definite decision in the matter so that the concerned workers are granted with gratuity. Delay in decision will deny the same to those who are already retiring after thirty-forty years of dedicated service.
