The one lakh eighty thousand executives and non-executives working in the BSNL as also the one lakh casual-contract labourers have gone on two-days strike on 12th and 13th December 2017 as per the call of the All Unions & Associations in BSNL and also BSNL Casual and Contract Workers Federation. The strike has been completely successful with almost all the employees on strike and the 30,000 or more BSNL offices almost closed. The demands are fully justified and do not need any further explanation.

In such a situation, why the DOT, BSNL and the Chief Labour Commissioner (Central) keeping silence? Of course, the pressure from the BJP government will be there to ignore the struggle of the workers as seen in the case of CG employees, GDS etc. But workers will not keep silence. More and more struggle will erupt.

We demand that DOT and BSNL start discussion with the Unions and associations and settle the issues.
