The government decision of the III PRC is already issued. In the case of BSNL, the DOT and Government should decide for wage revision immediately, taking in to consideration the fact that BSNL is having operational profit and the same is increasing, productivity is high, the loss is due to policy decision of the government on universal service and the workers were government servants earlier, where the pay revision is not connected with profit and loss etc. The affordability clause should be removed in case of BSNL for wage revision.
The success of the strike on 27th July has already shown that the workers are ready for further action for getting wage revision. Without making the workers to go on further agitational programmes, the government should take positive decision.
