Com.V.A.N.Namboodiri, President, BSNLCCWF met Shri A.M.Gupta, GM(Restg), BSNL C.O. and discussed about the non-settlement of issues of contract workers in many circles. He pointed out that the contract workers in Jharkhand are not being paid full wages. Instead of making payment through cheque or accounts as per orders of the CMD BSNL, they are being paid in cash to avoid scrutiny. In UP(East) Circle, despite bringing the non-payment of minimum wage and non-implementation of EPF and ESI to the notice of the corporate office, the issues remain still unsettled.
GM(Restructuring) stated that several instructions have been issued and that Corporate Office is monitoring the cases. He assured that necessary action will be taken to implement the orders at the field level. Comprehensive orders are also being issued.
