At last, after a lapse of more than one and half years, the wage negotiation for BSNL non-executives starts tomorrow. Sustained agitational programmes were organised, including strike, to compel the Management and the DOT to agree for negotiation, who were refusing the same on the plea that BSNL is in loss for the last three years. But at last the BSNL management has conceded for discussion and DOT had also given approval. Hard bargain is unavoidable. The representatives from the staff side are eight with five from BSNLEU and three from NFTE.

Let us hope for a good agreement.
