Casual workers recruited in DOT and working in BSNL are being paid the lowest of the DOT (Govt.) wages. BSNLCCWF had earlier demanded that they should be paid the lowest wages in BSNL. The demand was not accepted by the BSNL Management stating that since they are recruited by DOT, they will be aid the government wages only. Now that the government has implemented the VII CPC recommended pay scales and the lowest wage is Rs.18,000, the same should be paid to the casual workers. It is also demanded that the CDA also should be paid.
The BSNL Management has so far not implemented the same. Instead a committee is appointed to look in to the matter. Management has agreed to pay the CDA, but so far no order is issued.
BSNLCCWF is continuously making efforts get both the above implemented at the earliest.
