BSNLCCWF calls upon the Casual Contract Labours to observe 28th June, as Anti Retrenchment Day.
It is reported that the retrenchment of Contract Workers is going on in BSNL at high speed in some circles during last few months. It happens due to instruction of Corporate Office to reduce 30% expenditure of repair maintenance and security guard. Management has taken a decision to reduce the staff strength of the security guards, and that’s why the Corporate Office is not allotting sufficient fund for the repair maintenance and security guards regularly. As a result the Contract Workers are not getting the wages in due time. The total episode was discussed in our last secretariat meeting held in Delhi on 29th May, 2018 and it has decided to observe “Anti Retrenchment Day” on 28th June through out the country by holding powerful demonstrationss at all level. We should raise our voice with the slogan “No retrenchment – ensure the payment of wages and Social Securities”. District and Circle secretaries are requested to make a good campaign on the issue. As a follow up action Dharna Programme will also be organised at SSA level before GM or DGM office on 10th July. We will review the total situation and then we may approach the Dy. CLC or RLC on the same subject in the month of August, 2018. (BSNLCCWF website)
