Casual Labour in DOT and later in BSNL has always been paid the lowest of the wages recommended by the Central Pay Commissions. Wages as per the VI CPC was also implemented in the same way. VII CPC recommendations of Rs.18,000 as the lowest wage has been accepted by the government and same implemented for CG employees. But even after one year, BSNL management has not issued orders granting this lowest wage to the casual labours. This is complete injustice. The wages recommended by VI CPC and implemented for CG employees w.e.f. 2006 is still continuing for casual workers even after 11 years.

BSNLCCWF and BSNLEU have many times demanded that this should be implemented. Non-implementation is resulting in loss of thousands of rupees to the poor paid workers.

The BSNL Management should implement the lowest wage of CG employees to the casual labours working in BSNL without any further delay.
